Hollywood It Girls Go Pinup

Dita Von Teese, watch out. Check out this coffee table book of photographs by celebrity photographer Timothy White, starring Hollywood It-girls done up as retro-pinups. In the past, White’s shot stars ranging from Harrison Ford to Will Smith, but this time around he went for old school Hollywood, girly glamor. His pinup makeover subjects include Cindy Crawford, Gina Gershon, Jamie-Lynn Sigler, Kate Hudson, Michelle Trachtenberg, Molly Sims, Vanessa Williams, and Mary-Kate Olsen. You can check out Olsen’s shot here. We like that the images are classy, not crass. These days, more is the new less. Keep reading »

Crave: Jlife Coin Purse

We usually keep our change in a jar on our bedroom windowsill and empty the quarters out once a week for laundry, but with a coin purse this sweet, we may have to get rid of that jar completely. Cute enough to be carried by itself, it’s still the perfect size to be thrown into a handbag and pulled out when you want to buy a newspaper… Or, you know, do a load of laundry. [$27, Etsy] Keep reading »

The Sartorialist: The Book?

The Sartorialist, a.k.a. Scott Schuman, is one of my favorite photographer bloggers, with his candid, beautiful shots of cool fashionistas and slick stylists, who he finds on streets around the world. Now, Fashionista is reporting a rumor that Sart, whose own image appeared in a recent GAP campaign, has scored a book deal, possibly with Harper Collins, for a coffee table book of his iconic images. After the jump, my top ten favorite Sartorialist photos so far in 2008. Keep reading »

(Don’t) Leave Britney Alone!
“bruce buchanan” from Quick Pic: Should Britney Spears Buy These Sunglasses?
There’s a new Chris Crocker on the Internet! When we spotted Britney trying on some wayfarer sunglasses, we decided to play gal pal and asked you guys to give her a yay or nay on buying the frames. What did our friend Bruce say? “britney rules she is the best girl and entertainer ever,bruce.”

Project Runway: The Cop Out

Looks We Liked: Jerell’s Jewel Of A Dress; Leanne’s Soft Stunner

The designers had to create gowns inspired by photos taken at the New York Botanical Garden. There were a lot of tears on the runway this week, so I guess the producers decided to keep the drama flowing because the judges didn’t eliminate anyone this week. Instead, Heidi said the judges would wait until the collections were underway and would decide who goes to Bryant Park at that point. I didn’t think it was really a hard decision to make. They should have eliminated the designer that has only won one challenge on her own and who makes strikingly similar dresses each episode — Kenley! Keep reading »

Trends: Are Girls Jumping Off Buildings The New Black?

After watching this new Rhapsody ad and seeing this recent fashion layout for POP magazine, starring model-of-the-moment Agyness Deyn and shot by Ryan McGinley, I couldn’t help but wonder if women jumping off buildings is the new, new thing in pop-culture imagery. In late June, model Ruslana Korshunova, in an apparent suicide, fell from the ninth-floor balcony of her New York City apartment. What do you think is going on here? Keep reading »

How To Go Goth

When I was in high school, the kids who wore the same three colors every day — black, dark black, and darker black — were the freaks. They had piercings everywhere, listened to Marilyn Manson, and smoked cigarettes in the parking lot during pep rallies. But right now, Wednesday Adams and her gang are having their day in the sun — while keepin’ it pale — as the fashion world recommends going goth this season. After all, black is a slimming color.

Project Runway: Don’t Mess With Tim Gunn!

Was anyone else as horrified by Kenley’s behavior on last night’s episode of “Project Runway” as I was? I mean, forget her incredible rudeness when she laughed at poor Joe’s design on the runway, or the unbearable narcissism she displayed in being paired with a mini-her of a client whom she could easily mold into whatever she wanted. Kenley dared to do the absolute unthinkable. Girlfriend disrespected Tim Gunn. Keep reading »
