Seriously, guess. $10? $50? $500? WRONG. It costs — gah, I cannot believe this is for effing real and for effing sale! — $1,625. Let me repeat: one-thousand six-hundred and twenty-five dollars. No, not pesos. DOLLARS. Dear Mr. Balmain (or Ms., whatever): Screw. You. [Net-A-Porter.com via The Daily What] Keep reading »
Rihanna stepped on to the Nickelodeon orange carpet at the Kids’ Choice Awards wearing a Dior number that reminds us of a candy striper. Although we think she messed with fashion perfection by over-padding her shoulders, we were able to create a similar outfit for way less than Rihanna’s original. We swapped her chevron stripes for polka dots, though. Check out the buying info, after the jump!

With the spring season comes prom, meaning teenage girls from across the land will be stalking their local malls for the perfect dress for an evening of dancing and memories. But this year, instead of long A-line dresses and tiaras, girls are opting for the slutty chic look, complete with side cut-outs and bare midriffs. Somehow prom night has become a trashy evening in Atlantic City. In fact, at Saks Fifth Avenue, the most popular dress is a floor-length leopard print dress with side cut-outs by La Femme, sans back, that retails for $380. Keep reading »
Sometimes we feel like Us Weekly‘s “The Fashion Police” and other similar style critics can be a tad harsh. Also, they tend to have these really boring, conservative styles and we have to wonder what their real fashion credentials are. (Case in point: US Weekly‘s “Top Cops” include random comedian Stefanie Novik and Chet Cannon of “The Real World, Brooklyn.” When did they ever go to design school!?) The Fashion Peacekeepers are here to say, hey, can’t everyone’s styles just get along?
It’s not easy, but every now and then, we feel kinda bad for famous, beautiful cajillionaires. Tabloids, paparazzi, us … can they not catch an everlovin’ break? Today, fashion police across the web are brandishing their weapons and calling out rom-kom kween Jennifer Aniston for making the grave sartorial misstep of wearing a color that clashes with the red carpet. OK, so the dress is not one we would be caught dead in, but that’s beside the point. Must celebs always nix the color hot pink no matter what? Sounds like garment prejudice, and we don’t like it one bit. Keep reading »
Dree Hemingway, model of the moment and granddaughter of Ernest Hemingway, is hot. Even without her mega literary-celebrity roots, she’d deserve a spot in front of the camera. What she does not deserve, however, is the job of styling the shoots she’s in. i-D Magazine just released images of a Dree shoot in which the pretty young thing both styled the outfits and sat for the pics and, sorry, girl, but those outfits are a mess. More than anything else, the whole thing looks like an amateurish ode to grade school style gone awry. That means droopy cotton dresses with tacky, too-big jewelry and even one particularly tragic instance involving a maternity top and a deer head. Sadly, the best outfit was Dree wrapped in a sheet.
