Bigger Models Make Women Feel Bad About Themselves, Too

Dove’s Real Beauty ad campaigns are heralded as groundbreaking forays into being a bit more realistic about how women look. Glamour‘s new habit of featuring regular-sized broads after the publicity deluge the first time they did it, too, is widely praised. But here’s the thing: According to a new study by the University of Arizona, ads featuring bigger models don’t actually make most women feel very good about themselves. Apparently, pretty much everything makes women feel like crap about how they look. Keep reading »

Flip-Flops That Will Make You SOL (Squeal Out Loud)

Stop trying to make jellies happen. It seems like each spring, someone tries to bring back that childhood trend, and it just never gets off the ground, or makes you look like you’re 6 years old again, which is great for attracting pedophiles. Here’s a playful alternative that brings a bit of the jelly feeling—these bow sandals by Melissa are plastic-ly perfect and undeniably adorable. Is it just us … or do you kind of want to put these flip-flops in your mouth?

Karl Lagerfeld On Burqas, Celebrity Status, & Adoption

Here’s the thing about fashion. Sometimes dreams do come true. Just yesterday, blogger Bryan Boy was invited to visit Vogue, and in the newest issue of Vice magazine, Canadian writer Bruce LaBruce was invited by the glossy to fly out to Paris to spend an hour and a half with the sunglassed designer, Karl Lagerfeld. In between questions about his personality, life choices, and celebrity status, Karl equates his sunglasses to a burqa, discusses the fact that he’d rather give money to a specific child’s family than adopt and disrupt their home life, talks about how he only eats meat once a week on orders from his doctor, shares info about his fax relationship with Anna Wintour, and admits that he has one person on staff dedicated to delivering letters. Every day. The full interview is published in a Q&A form, and we highly suggest stopping what you’re doing in order to read the quotes in their entirety. [Vice] Keep reading »

Style 911: How Do I Dress For A Bridal Shower?

I’m getting married next fall and I haven’t a clue what to wear to the three of four bridal showers between now and then. Any ideas? – Moira

When you’re planning your outfits, keep in mind that this is the bridal shower, not the bachelorette party. By which we mean your mom and several other people old enough to have birthed you will probably be there, so dress like an adult. Just make sure it’s a really cute adult by choosing something conservative in shape and whimsical in details. Keep reading »

Andre Leon Talley Makes Me Slightly More Interested In “ANTM”


I’ll just go ahead and put it right out there: I do not watch “America’s Next Top Model.” Never have, and never had any plans to, until now. I could seriously just sit and watch Vogue‘s Andre Leon Talley all the diggity day long. I love his wink-wink faux-Euro accent (he’s from South Carolina, genius!) and his French pronunciations of savage (SAH-vauge) and salon (SAH-lawn) and his amazing capes and jewelry and, most of all, how he was so nice to that poor crying model. Also, “dreckitude” is clearly the new Fashion Word of the Day. Lastly, it cracks me up how Tyra so obviously defers to him and how he takes that smug old Nigel Barker — a rather commercial, lame photog whom no serious fashion magazine has ever employed — down a notch. LOVE. This new development just may make me the latest to the party convert ever. Keep reading »

Would You Wear Visible Garter Belts?

All those terrifying pictures of Taylor Momsen and now some fashion blogs calling out visible garters as a trend has us scratching our heads a bit. On the one hand, garter belts are pretty damn hot. On the other, though, we really can’t quite imagine wearing them so visibly, let alone in public during the day. Under a pencil skirt barely visible when you move the right way at night, maybe. With a school girl skirt fully exposed at the office? Maybe not so much. What do you think? Would you try this look or are garter belts better reserved for the bedroom?
