United Jimmies Of Benetton

Fashion designers and houses love to have their labels plastered on billboards, T-shirts, and handbags. But who knew something as simple as a wrapper could get the fashion world’s attention. United Colors of Benetton joins Alexander Wang, Yigal Azrouël, and Marc Jacobs in the lengthening line of fashion brands that have released condoms. The Benetton condoms are made in Japan by Okamoto Industries, which also manufactures Beyond Seven condoms and automotive interior material. The condoms, which sell for $15.50 for 12, only come in pink and green — not quite all of the united colors, but the wrappers are kind of cute and not sexually explicit. I’m still not sure what batteries have to do with condoms, but maybe the message is that sex with a condom is everlasting and energizing. This designer condom trend may create a niche group of collectors … Keep reading »

Would You Rock Mini-Shorts?

Psst. Hey. Hey, you. Yeah, you. Amanda. Amanda Bynes. I wanted to tell you know something. Your butt? You know, your banana roll, as they call it? Falling out the back for your shorts? That’s not workin’. I mean, it’s your butt. The bottom of your butt. And we’re all looking at it. Sure, sure. You were just jumping out of your car “for a minute” to grab some magazines at that newsstand. Really, though, that’s still a major TMI fashion faux pas you got there. And we have to imagine you noticed that fleet of paps following you, and you’re well aware that they’re standing there waiting for your behind to fall out of those crack-splitters so they can get a shot. So, why? Why parade your rear for all to see? Do you want to be the next Britney? Because we know where she ended up after all those flashes. Bald and institutionalized. What about you, ladies? Would you rock these booty shorts in public? Keep reading »

Slideshow: Supermodels Over 35

Nearly 40, Claudia Schiffer is lookin’ good on the cover of the April issue of Vogue and we have to admit, it’s nice to see a friendly face- not to mention an adult one. In an age where models seem to be getting younger and younger, Schiffer is part of a trend of talented women breaking through the ageist industry and proving they’re as sexy and valued as ever! As Schiffer tells Vogue, i“All of my friends are my age and we are all aging at the same time. We talk about it and moan, but it doesn’t bother me.” And we highly doubt any man could complain about this knock out! Seriously, the confidence of these sexy models, who are not teenagers anymore, are beating the odds of a highly critical, looks based business. Thanks to the women in this slideshow, true beauty is something we all can achieve at every age.

Stop Staring At Me With Your Giant Eyeball Head

Here’s looking at you, kid. This model wasn’t crying when she paraded down the runway during Milan Fashion Week wearing this surrealist-psycho ensemble designed by Madrid’s Agatha Ruiz de la Prada — or, heck, was she? It’s impossible to tell with that giant eyeball she’s wearing on her head. Who knew cyclopses were the new black? And if that skirt’s not sexual, I don’t know what it is. Or, you know, maybe that’s just me. Of course, this frock wasn’t the only crazy creation the Spanish designer concocted for her Fall/Winter 2009 line. There’s the baguette hat, the trapped-in-a-birdcage exoskeleton, Rainbow Brite Chewbacca, and, I don’t know, this chick just looks like a hedge. [China Daily] Keep reading »

Would You Rock Chainmail Stockings?

Chainmail stockings, anyone? This outrageous, avant-garde leg-wear was created by Queens-based fashion designer and stylist LaQuan Smith, who is all of 20 years old and designs a line called LaQueue. Honestly, I’m not totally sure what these stockings are made out of or how they work exactly (I mean, how do they stay up, for starters, metal garters?), but I do know they’re mighty cool, and they sure look like they’re run-proof. Love them with the matchy-matchy shoes, but if you really wanted to take the modern-day postfeminist gladiator look to the gold hilt, you could pair them with the gold metal dress that matches. So, would you rock them? [Paint it Noir] Keep reading »

Quickies!: Kanye’s New Girl Amber Rose Was A Professional

  • Kanye West’s new girlfriend Amber Rose used to work a stripper pole before she started working him. Ha! Like they really have sex. [Media Takeout]
  • Gwyneth Paltrow said people hate on her website Goop because they just don’t get it. She’s right. I just don’t get why I’d want to take advice from a celebrity whose life (and bank account balance!) is completely different from mine. [Perez Hilton]
  • Warner Bros. has plans to remake “The Neverending Story.” Is nothing sacred? Although I want my childhood memories to remain as they are, I do think this story would benefit from advances in CGI technology. [Dlisted]

    Poll: Can Women Wear Bow Ties?

    For Christmas this year, one of my dream gifts was a plaid bow tie. Our Simcha was thoughtful enough to surprise me with one, and I have since spent quite a bit of time trying to figure out how to wear it without looking like a waitress at a Scottish restaurant. Do you think women can wear bow ties and look good doing so? Vote, then leave me some styling suggestion in the comments! [Weardrobe] Keep reading »

    Hello, SM Kitty

    This new ad for MAC Cosmetics is a surreal, kinky take on Alice in Wonderland, featuring a trip through a (ahem) pink tunnel that takes Alice into a faraway land, where she gets molested by a roving gang of shirtless, male, SM-styled Hello Kitties. Well, then! Apparently, the four-minute, outre mini-movie is a tie-in to the new Hello Kitty-MAC collaboration. This time around, though, Hello Kitty goes black, and the product line includes Hello Kitty “kitten-eyes,” crosshatched fake eyelashes, Hello Kitty On the Prowl platinum nail polish, and a Hello Kitty plush doll in black pleather. Clearly, all things Alice in Wonderland are looking to be the new new thing. Tim Burton is at work on a live action/stop motion new movie version of Lewis Carroll’s novel, starring Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, and Anne Hathaway. Who knows if Burton’s redux will be quite so fetishistic as this. Keep reading »

    Jay McCarroll’s Eleven Minutes

    Jay McCarroll, the fashion designer who won the first season of “Project Runway,” is the focus of a new documentary that arrives just in time for New York Fashion Week: “Eleven Minutes.” Why 11 minutes? That’s how long his first fashion show will last. The cameras follow McCarroll behind the scenes as he works to live up to the expectations that reality TV bestowed upon him and at the same time expose the insanity that is the fashion industry, of which McCarroll says: “It is the dumbest industry.” Dumb or not, the doc, the cast of which includes the delightful Kelly Cutrone, is a mostly hilarious, sometimes moving look at what it takes to make it — without compromising yourself. The bigger question, of course, is whether McCarroll or any of his reality TV show peers will be able to turn their 15 minutes of fame as reality stars into stars in the real world. Keep reading »

    Crave: Bumble Bee Necklace

    In this long winter when we can’t bear to buy boots—though we need them—but also can’t quite justify a strapless sundress, this whimsical bauble satiates our shopping crave. The brass bumble bee and indigo agate chain by Jami Rodriguez can cheekily peek through our layers of scarves and sweaters and later can be a centerpiece with airy dresses in summer months. Either way, we’re sure to make a buzz. [$98, MaxandChloe.com] Keep reading »
