Newcomer Love magazine made a splash with its debut issue featuring a naked Beth Ditto on the cover. So, we’ve been eagerly anticipating the U.K.-style journal’s second issue, the theme of which is “New Blood: The Young & The Reckless.” The mag is already doing some clever pre-marketing by leaking possible covers. Some possibilities include Tavi (on the left), the 13-year-old fashion blogger who made our list as one of the “teens we’re most jealous of.” Alex (on the right) is an 18-year-old guitar teacher and bass player. (Uh, has anyone heard of this kid before?) Keep reading »
You know how sometimes the leather of your handbag feels so soft that you find yourself stroking it? Well, this handbag not only feels soft, but it will help you practice your masturbation technique — in case you still need help with that. [Fail Blog, 8/6/09] Keep reading »
Sorry, kids. No more Beckham underwear porn for you. Victoria Beckham has decided against continuing the super steamy underwear campaign that she models with her husband for Armani. The reason? She says she wants to concentrate on her fashion career, as she’ll be presenting her line at NYC Fashion Week for the second time. However, could it be that she’s finally embracing her inner prude? Apparently, the Beckham children have asked some questions about their naked parents. Says David, “When they first saw them, they were like: ‘Daddy, why are you in your underwear so everyone can see?’”
That isn’t enough, though, to tear the soccer star away from the campaign—he’s keeping his contract. So, will Armani slate another sexy celeb couple to shoot the line? What Hollywood pair would measure up? Brad and Angie? Will and Jada? [Grazia, NowMagazine.co.uk] Keep reading »
Talk about a test-drive. Recent fashion seasons have seen some of the highest heels on record, from Nina Ricci’s heel-less high-heels to Rodarte’s towering Frankenstein boots. They may be beautiful, but can real women walk to work in the seven-inch stilettos that sent some supermodels spilling on the runways? The ladies at New York‘s style blog, The Cut, pulled together some of the craziest footwear and found out what happens when you try and sashay down the street in them. “They’re incredibly uncomfortable,” one good sport reports. And as for those Nina Ricci heels? Forget about it — unless you like walking on your tiptoes. [The Cut] Keep reading »

Can we just say upfront that we called this? Every time Danielle Staub, the “villain” of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, shared the screen with her teenage daughter, Christine, we couldn’t help but stare. The 5’10, 15 year-old blond is absolutely beautiful. New York City based IMG models totally agrees. They just signed the high school student to a contract. “She came into our offices and we were blown away!” IMG Models Worldwide exec, Ivan Bart, told People. “She has an amazing amount of potential as a model. If we had seen her on the street we would have signed her on the spot.””We were absolutely blown away by her when we saw her.” Keep reading »
Excluding those gals who have the unique ability (and required lack of shame) to go around commando on top, we’ve all found ourselves in the dilemma of finding a super-cute top or dress… but no bra to wear with it. Since I require some serious support when it comes to my undergarments, I’ve tried just about anything to make do with what I’ve got at the last possible minute — sewing kits, safety pins (why did it take them so long to invent the Brabuddy?), tucking straps into my armpits, etc. — but now that I’m a little older, I’ve learned that the easiest solution is to just shop wiser! Why spend money on a separate strapless bra when you could buy the ultimate convertible bra that’s both strapless, strapped, racerback, and halter all in one? Continue reading… Keep reading »

My mother has given me some great (and critical) fashion wisdom over the years—don’t mix denims, wear what feels comfortable (note: this does not mean wearing pajamas in public), dress for the season (i.e., no flip-flops when it’s snowing), and never let your underwear peep through your clothes.
Oh, and always wear underwear. Keep reading »
You know what they say: The children are our future. Of late, this is especially the case in fashion, with Marc Jacobs’ foray into swimwear for tots and Cynthia Rowley’s new collection for mega-chain Babies”R”Us (uh, we know).
Hand it to Monsieur Jean Paul Gaultier to kick it up a notch with his new squeal-worthy kids line! Called Junior Jean-Paul Gaultier, the back-to-school designs take inspiration from the ’80s and quintessential (if not downright stereotypical) French style. For fashion-istas and -istos of 2-16 years of age, the styles include too-cute sailor dresses, cheesy (yet adorable) leopard jackets, and cheeky berets. Sheesh, if these kids dress this well before they’ve even hit puberty, what are they going to look like when they’re grown-ups? [FashionIndie.com] Keep reading »
