The Fabulous Life Of J. Crew Creative Director Jenna Lyons

On yesterday’s show, Oprah learned about an assortment of dream jobs, including Jenna Lyon‘s position as J. Crew’s creative director. Not only does Jenna have an amazing career, but everything about her life is seemingly perfect, too. She calls a gorgeous Brooklyn townhouse home (bedroom-sized closet, of course), has a handsome husband and a cute kid, gets all the J. Crew clothes she wants, and somehow manages to get home by 6:30 p.m. every evening. Watch a day in her life above, but be prepared to feel some serious pangs of jealousy. [Oprah] Keep reading »

Lane Bryant Says ABC Is Fat-O-Phobic


Apparently ABC has a problem with hot ladies in their undies. Or so says plus-sized lingerie purveyor Lane Bryant in their claim that the network tried to shut out their plus-sized lingerie commercial. ABC “demanded excessive re-edits and rebuffed it three times before relenting to air it during the final 10 minutes of ‘American Idol,’ but only after we threatened to pull the ad buy,” blogged the company in a bit of well-placed outrage. We watched the commercial (above) and don’t get what the problem is. Yeah, she’s crazy hot and half naked, but ABC routinely airs Victoria’s Secret commercials featuring busty teenagers prancing about in front of fans; this looks tame by comparison. Thoughts?

How To Wear Hoop Earrings Without Looking Skanky

Kerry Washington looks gorgeous in her hoop earrings, and this mighty appearance is being heralded as the return of the massive ear accessory (which we’ll kind of take with a grain of salt).

Devil’s Advocate: Garance Doré On The Plus-Size Model Debate

When it comes to the fashion industry size debate, even we admit that as much as opposing sides keep launching rockets, it often feels like a peace treaty will never come to be. After seeing such incremental changes towards a healthier body standard, we sometimes feel like raising our shoulders and saying, “So what are you going to do?” You get a wave of “normal” or “plus-sized” fashion shoots that get good press, but the attention is often treated as a trend and an unsettling novelty that only recedes back into the shadows once the hype dies down. It’s undeniably frustrating and disheartening.

One of our favorite fashion photography bloggers, Frenchie Garance Doré is experiencing some heat for some controversial comments she recently made about size. Keep reading »

Quick Pic: Who’s Walking Whom?

We don’t even really know where to start with this one. There’s the most obvious bit: a chain body suit and five inch heels that appear to be that model’s dog walking outfit. But then there are also the subtler wtf aspects of this shot, like the disembodied torso holding an even smaller person in the background. Or the fact that the chair on which said torso is sitting closelry resembles those crappy, stackable ones we all remember from grade school auditoriums. Sacrilege! [The Cut] Keep reading »
