Jimmy Choo President Tamara Mellon Took Off Everything But Her Shoes

Tamara Mellon, the co-founder and president of Jimmy Choo, let scandal-bound photographer Terry Richardson shoot her in the nude (besides a pair of Choos, of course) for Interview. When was the last time you saw a company’s top brass tout the brand while wearing nothing? “I wonder what they’ll say at the next board meeting,” Tamara told the magazine. She also defended Jimmy Choo’s collaboration with Uggs. “I think Ugg is still relevant,” she said. “The thing about Ugg is that everybody has a pair in their closet.” When the interviewer said she didn’t own a pair, Tamara replied, “I bet you’ll wear the Jimmy Choo ones! The thing about Uggs is that they’re so comfortable. Once you’ve worn them, you don’t want to go back.” [NSFW: Interview via Huffington Post] Keep reading »

Itty Bitty Marc Jacobs Earrings, Equally Small Price

Oh, Piperlime. You’re like that kid in high school who was really, really cool but nobody knew it. You may not have that uber-trendy edge, but if we dig, we’re always finding cute little surprises. Take, for example, these teeny Marc by Marc Jacobs bow-shaped stud earrings that come in sexy black or virgin (ha, yeah right) white. First of all, it is a proven fact that anything miniaturized makes us squeal with joy. Second, we’ll definitely say yes to some rad MJ accessories for not even a Ulysses S. Grant. (That’s a $50 bill, and yeah, we had to look it up to double-check. What? It’s a Monday!)

[$48.00 Piperlime]

Mobama Is, Like, Obsessed With Monique Pean

With Earth Day quickly approaching, it’s time to devote your attention to nature. Whether you’re one of the smart few who regularly works to keep our planet healthy, or you’ve just become inspired as of late, it’s important to recognize those who marry their talents with their passion to save the world. One jewelry designer who’s always given her attention to Mother Nature is Monique Pean. And she has some major support, in the form of Michelle Obama. The designer started her career in finance, but realized her passion for jewelry and launched her own line in 2005, with a major focus on staying socially responsible and eco-friendly by using conflict-free stones only. Monique won the 2009 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund and the 2009 Ecco Domani Fashion Foundation Award for Accessories, partnered with Charity:Water, and supports the No Dirty Gold campaign — proving that her talent is one to watch, for both her message and gems. In the time she’s been creating, she quickly she gained the love of MObama. Recently, the First Lady was spotted in Mexico City, practically dripping in jewelry by Monique Pean. Check her stuff out here. Keep reading »

How To Get The Tie Dye Trend Right

Apparently tie dye is a full-blown trend at this point; we literally can’t go a day without being visually assaulted by the stuff. Sometimes, the girls we see wearing it are pulling it off. Other times, however, it’s a hot hippie mess all over the place. If you insist on joining the hordes of latter-day-free-lovers, make sure to get it right. A few tips after the jump. Keep reading »

Shocker: Style Biting Prevalent In Pop Stardom


It seems like all the blogosphere wants to talk about today is Ke$ha‘s crappy “Saturday Night Live” performances this weekend (slow news day?) and how she is all Lady Gaga wanna-bein’ it up and totally stole Sia’s “Buttons” performance style since her (pretty wack) costume glowed in the dark, blah, blah … After checking out Sia’s performance on Jimmy Kimmel a few years back, I can certainly see the similarities. But it’s no different than Lady Gaga’s own incessant copy-catting of Grace Jones, Róisin Murphy (check out all the outfits Gaga has copped) and other fashion and pop idols. The fact is, much like fashion is cyclical, so are performance styles. I’m not defending the little punk, but for all her crimes, this is a big fat nothing. Watch the clip after the jump!

Jennifer Lopez Wears Good Earrings In A Bad Movie

India Earrings, $68, Judith Bright
Gold Paisley Earrings, $58, Judith Bright

Sometimes trailers do the opposite of what they’re supposed to do, which is get you to go to the movie. After seeing the preview for Jennifer Lopez‘s new movie, “The Back-up Plan,” I definitely won’t be plunking down $15 to see it in theaters. However, I might take the money I save by not watching it and put that toward the purchase of a pair of earrings she wears in the movie. Three different Judith Bright earring styles adorn Jennifer’s ears in “The Back-up Plan,” and while I tend to go for post earrings, these simple danglers would be a fun change, especially since they won’t completely deplete my bank account at $53 to $68 a pair. And, if you do end up seeing the film, send the jewelry company your ticket stub by May 31 for 20 percent off, which will essentially recoup the cost of your movie ticket.
