Worth The Splurge: Candela Wingtips

Man shoes for ladies have become almost unavoidable fixtures in stores and on the feet of cool girls. So while they were a bit of a challenge to find just a couple years ago, there’s now a plethora of options, some much, much better than others. Amongst the chosen brogues are those by New York brand Candela. They run about $200 to $250, so they’re not freebies. But they are glorious. Keep reading »

Natalia Vodianova Makes An Intimidating Medusa


If Gisele Bundchen in “Taxi,” Gemma Ward in “The Strangers”, and pretty much the entire cast of “Head Over Heels” are any evidence, the model-slash-actress gig rarely works out well. It’s not the case in every situation, but the crossover from runway to reel often just results in a hot girl strutting around and delivering awkward lines. That said, we’re pretty thrilled about the “Clash of the Titans” clip above. Supermodel Natalia Vodianova has been CGI’d into a slithering, soul-crushing Medusa with nary a hint of the preening and posing we usually see in model actresses. Nicely done.

Girls Don’t Like Snails

I don’t know what the stylist for this shoot had in mind when she chained a fleet of what appear to be living snails to this model’s neck, but the idea of wearing it makes me shudder. [Vice] Keep reading »

Clothing Label “Angry White Girl” Drops Michelle McGee

Talk about a public relations nightmare: say the name of your hardcore “fashion” line is Angry White Boy Clothing and Apparel (women’s line called Angry White Girl, natch). Then consider what might happen when news emerges that your spokesmodel was not only bonking America’s Sweetheart’s husband, but is faced with all manner of touchy white supremacist allegations. Oh and don’t forget, the name of the line she fronts is called ANGRY WHITE GIRL. Ooooh, sticky!

That’s why the company has announced they’re parting ways with Michelle “Bombshell” McGee, and on their site, they’ve posted a bunch of swastikas with red lines drawn through with a note that says, “This clothing line is not a racist or fascist band! Period!” Way to spin-doctor a delicate sitch. Thanks for clarifying, guys! [New York Post] Keep reading »

How To Dress Like A Model

Perhaps it’s a result of working around the coolest stylists and designers in the world, but models are just as much trend setters as they are clothes hangers. Leggings and combat boots? Models were doing that long before the rest of us. Laid-back makeup and messy hair? That was a look amongst the lovelies even before a bevy of designers decided to put it on the runway this past season. The mannequin-obsessed blog Modelinia knows all about the power of the model in setting styles and they’re helping the rest of us catch up with model style before it’s a full-blown trend. Check out their “Shop Her Style” posts for ideas ripped straight from models on the street. [Modelinia] Keep reading »

5 Tips On How To Avoid Fake Designer Scams

Luxury brand giant LVMH — they own Louis Vuitton, Fendi, Marc Jacobs and pretty much everything else that makes you salivate — is suing Google for letting non-LVMH companies associate their websites with search terms like “Louis Vuitton.” What this basically means is that people with shady handbag websites are buying ad spots for their copycat Louis bags and those ads are showing up when people search for the real deal. Sometimes it’s really easy to spot the fake. Oftentimes, however, underhanded websites try to pass themselves off as legit designer discounters and shoppers looking for a deal get royally screwed. Worst of all, “Guaranteed Authentic” doesn’t actually mean much online these days. Here are a few ways to figure out whether or not the purses you’re ogling are legit or big fat fakes… Keep reading »
