Terrifying Trend We Hope Goes Away Quickly

Brooklyn is kind of the birthplace of numerous hipster trends. Why, the streets of “artist” neighborhood Williamsburg were flooded with mustached men in skinny jeans and girls who looked like American Apparel models long before these unfortunate looks trickled down to the masses. So what’s the next big craze? No, it’s not tie-dye (over before it began) or ironically Bedazzled denim: Behold, the beloved-from-childhood coonskin cap. On a recent expedition across the pond known as the East River, a group of brave Gawker reporters couldn’t walk the city streets without running into one of these bad boys. One guy explained that he was going for a “nouveau Johnny Cash-meets-Bono look” (omg), while a young lady cited the benefits of the tail, claiming she could wave it at people she thinks are “cute.” Let’s just hope the slowly warming weather nips this trend in the bud, hey? (Also, I am sorry to report that this is not an April Fool’s thing. At least, I don’t think so.) [Gawker] Keep reading »

Sure Fooled Us: Gaga And McQueen Collab Bogus News

Lady Gaga kind of has an unfair advantage when it comes to making headlines—girl is so crazy that even the most whack claims are plausible. “Gaga Marries Siberian Goldfish”? Sure. “Lady Gaga Claims She Was Raised On Alien Colony”? We could see that. So when we saw the following news item this morning—”Lady Gaga To Design Collection For Alexander McQueen”—we didn’t for a second doubt it and thought, Whoa, we’re gonna have some awesome blogging material once pics of this come out.

Who Needs This Much Luggage?

Karl Lagerfeld likes his possessions in multiples. He has so many iPods that he’s hired an iPod nanny, but now it would seem that he needs a luggage minder as well. The brilliant designer checked out of his New York City hotel room to head back home and paparazzi snapped pictures of his exorbitant number of suitcases–14 in total. Now, for a man who dresses in practically the exact same thing every day, it’s not exactly clear as to why he needs quite so many pieces of luggage. Let’s just hope these 14 cases hold the latest Chanel collection. Apparently, Lagerfeld has never heard of the phrase “pack light.” [Daily Mail] Keep reading »

Changing Clothes Is The New Competitive Sport

I like this Kitsuné fashion video featuring clothes from the designer’s autumn/winter 2010 Ivy League line. While a soundtrack of hip tunes plays, a male mode, Nils, and a female model, Alazne, engage in competitive dressing and undressing. If only I looked like that when I took off my clothes. Sigh.

Street Style Blogs Passe; Vlogs Where It’s At


We’re not ashamed to admit that we’re full-on street style blog addicts. (Although, mainly out of jealousy of their impeccably-dressed subjects.) We’re noticing that the genre is moving to a different level after seeing real-style documentarians move to video platforms, which gives a whole new feeling to street style. We recently came across Vimeo user Jake Davis’s dreamy Test Shot videos, which offer a more poignant look at the featured person’s outfit through slow-mo close-ups and smooth beats. His short movies go beyond the aesthetics of style, and begin to talk more about the person behind the clothes, almost like a mini-narrative. Check it out! [Vimeo] Keep reading »

Christina Aguilera Shares A Hidden Talent In New “Bionic” Photos

See that ring between Christina Aguilera‘s hand? It certainly goes with her Bionic-influenced metal collar, but that ring also has a kinkier purpose. The sickle-shaped ring is actually Betony Vernon’s Petting Ring. It not only holds the index finger and thumb in the perfect chi mudra position, the hand “gesture used in meditation for a one-pointed mind,” but it also gives an extremely pleasant hand job (I hear). Christina likes to get “Dirrty,” so it’s safe to assume that the Petting Ring is more than a prop for her photo shoot. At $1,250 a pop, it better be her favorite toy to use on husband Jordan Bratman.
