Sometimes we feel like Us Weekly‘s “The Fashion Police” and other similar style critics can be a tad harsh. Also, they tend to have these really boring, conservative styles and we have to wonder what their real fashion credentials are. (Case in point: US Weekly‘s “Top Cops” include random comedian Stefanie Novik and Chet Cannon of “The Real World, Brooklyn.” When did they ever go to design school!?) The Fashion Peacekeepers are here to say, hey, can’t everyone’s styles just get along?
Pink has a fierce new trapeze act in her new show (here in L.A.), and, on one hand, she is simply attempting to rock a trend that is so hot right now: After all, celebs just love to wear pasties! Rihanna does a great job with her Nippies, but as much as we look at the positives here, we’re afraid we just can’t help you out Pink. If you get arrested, don’t come crying to us to bail you out. (Oh wait, here’s another look on the bright side: By outfitting your own breast with a heart shape, you’ve saved us precious minutes in the day so we don’t have to Photoshop one on top of this pic. Thanks!) Keep reading »
It’s hard for us to look at a mannequin’s uncovered, plastic head and keep our pants on. They’re just that hot. The synthetic and/or sculpted hair, the fake, vacant eyes, and the total lack of resemblance to a real live woman just gets the blood flowing in our nether regions. Aww, yeah.
OK, so obviously that’s not true. They are mannequins. They are inanimate. We do not have a lady boner for them. But apparently the Iranian government is very concerned about the power of the mannequin to seduce and corrupt. Keep reading »
Is your boyfriend still rocking those silk knot cuff links? So expected! Looking for a way to sexify (or is it dirtify?) a gentlemanly look just a little bit? Then check out these oh-so-classy cuff links from Swiss watchmaker Milus. Just when people are thinking he’s playing it on the straight and narrow, they get a better look at the wrist jewelry—quite the statement, huh? Check out the up-close view, after the jump!

“Wait, this is a shoe?” the guys at Gizmodo wonder. Apparently, yes. Created by London-based architect Julian Hakes, the Mojito shoe is barely there footwear for the high-tech minimalist. The heel is made of carbon fiber, which makes it strong and springy; there’s rubber on the bottom, I assume to stop slips, and leather on top, for a bit of cushion. It’s called the “Mojito” because it looks like a lime twist you get in your drink. Of his shoe without a foot plate, Hakes states this is the “most simple, elegant yet poetic expression of the forces at play within the materials used.” Looking at it, I can’t quite imagine wearing it, but I’d like to try it.

The latest Japanese edition of Harper’s Bazaar presents an interesting take on first lady fashion by dressing up a blond-haired, blue-eyed Barbie-like doll in a number of outfits and plopping her into scenes with various presidents. The animal print-wearing Michelle Obama stand-in is especially curious (take a look at it after the jump). Is this story trying to make some sort of political statement, or is this just someone’s ingenious way to show off new clothes gone terribly wrong? And considering Mobama is already a style icon, is she offended? Keep reading »
Crazy expensive, bejeweled bras are nothing new. Heidi Klum freakin’ wears one in every Victoria’s Secret runway show. But why should Heidi have all the spendy chest candy to herself? Here’s something different and dedicated to a great cause: Luxury lingerie company Di Murini has developed a Swarovski-studded mastectomy bra that weighs in at $1,931.58, with 50 percent of the profits going to the charity Against Breast Cancer. It’s a pretty cool addition to all the Breast Cancer Awareness Month fund-raising products, no? [Lussorian]

The delightful Coco Rocha graces the cover of Vogue Korea’s October issue and stars in this “Legend of Fall” spread. In subdued hues — black, grays, blues, tans, and a few shocks of color — the 21-year-old Toronto native eschews this season’s urban warrior garb for pretty, tailored looks with a touch of bohemian flair. More from the editorial after the jump! Keep reading »
We’ve seen the grab-able booty wrought by Huit lingerie’s padded butt panties. But never before have we seen denim that claims to give you a more voluptuous tush just from the fabric alone! Behold: Innovativa push-up jeans. They promise Beyoncé’s booty at only $99 a pop! The Innovativa site sells lots of different cute, tight pairs of jeans, each looking more liable to cut off circulation to your legs than the last. We’re wondering, though, if there’s not padding in the seat of those pants? Does the fabric just cantilever your butt up in order to make the cheeks look perkier? But how can a lady sit without ripping anything? Vaguely terrifying. True, this array of be-denimed butts is infinitely enticingly spankable, but if you want a badonkadonk, ladies, I’ve got a better idea. Just come ’round The Frisky office and I will generously offer to trade asses with you! [Guanabee] Keep reading »
“This winter the city’s most stylish men will have a secret weapon hidden in their trousers.”
No, no, no, get your mind out of the gutter, kids! That’s David Walker-Smith, the director of menswear and beauty of the famous London department store Selfridges, commenting on the fact that the huge (ha) new craze amongst British men is to wear tights (over their knickers and under their trousers) to keep their legs feeling warm and looking trim. In fact, demand for mantyhose has skyrocketed to the point where they’ve developed a line of them by lingerie brand Unconditional that are strong enough for a man at “a tough 120 denier thickness,” whatever the hell that means. And now dudes will get a taste of how expensive ladies’ “accessories” can be, as each pair costs a whopping $114. (REALLY!?) Hey, supply and demand folks, supply and demand. Those dudes must be seriously wanting to get their tights on. [Daily Mail] Keep reading »
Fashion Week is a generally an invite-only occasion. Shows like Marc Jacobs are impossible to get in to even for celebrities, and the lines for the chicest parties are astronomically long. So usually, unless you’re in the industry or uber A-list, being a part of it all entails stalking blogs and Twitter for information on the designer’s latest collections and all the late night party details.
But change is in the air! There have been a few advancements recently in opening the insidery world of fashion to the world.
