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.

Shauna Puts The “K” In Klassy

American “actress” and Playboy Playmate Shauna Sand manages to cram a number of trends–the iPhone, trucker cap, lucite stripper heels, animal prints and the it bag–all into one teensy weensy beach outfit. So multi-tasky! [Miami, 3/31/10] Keep reading »

Chanel’s “Paris-Shanghai” Accessories Collection: Made In China?

This winter, Chanel expanded its wardrobe once again by presenting a special collection in Shanghai, replete with Eastern interpretations of the haute couture brand. The line also includes quite a few accessories, due out in stores soon. Here, a glimpse at the offerings: Flashy sequined evening bags, lacquered Chinese doll clutches, and even a purse shaped like a takeout container.

This mainstream stuff isn’t the high-style aesthetic we remember coming down the runway. We hate to say it—but are we the only ones who think that these accessories look more like Chinatown knock-offs? We’re not quite buying it. [HighSnobette.com] Keep reading »

Shockingly, VS Angel Thinks She’d Make A Good Bond Girl

“I kind of see myself less as the girl riding a broomstick and holding a wand and more as a girl emerging from an explosion, with a gun.”

Victoria’s Secret Angel Rosie Huntington-Whitely on her response to rumors about her being featured in an American version of “Harry Potter.” We’re not surprised that she’d choose Bond over Potter, but we are skeptical of her reasoning. You sure it doesn’t have more to do with the wardrobe than the action, Rosie? Still, she may create a whole new acronym to replace MTA called MTAS: Model-Turned-Action-Star. Oh wait, Milla Jovovich and Rebecca Romijn did that already. [Vogue UK] Keep reading »

Should Fashion Knockoffs Be Illegal?

Over the weekend, a fashion industry caucus called the “Congressional Apparel Manufacturing and Fashion Business Caucus” was approved in Washington, DC. Boring though the name may be, the things they’d like to get done are actually pretty cool. Aside from the expected aim of curtailing design copying and counterfeiting, the caucus will also focus on getting funding for a design incubator program, scholarships for fashion students and saving New York’s Garment District. Third-term CFDA President Diane von Furstenberg has expressed interest in creating actual laws against design stealing, and this caucus could be a legit step towards that. Or it could prove to be yet another useless bit of Washington red tape. Do you think the relentless copycatting should be regulated? [Fashionologie] Keep reading »
