Is This What The Uggs And Jimmy Choo Collab Will Look Like?

Get ready for it—ChUggs are coming your way. While it might seem like a fashion prank, the Jimmy Choo and Uggs are indeed teaming up to work on a collaboration. (Our Photoshop magic, however, is a fashion prank.) Yet, it does sound like the final product will be a pretty decent mix of the two styles. According to WWD and an official press release, “The collection will be based on the construction of Ugg’s sheepskin boots ‘with design details that embody the spirit of the Jimmy Choo brand,’ the two companies said in a statement.” And prices? Sky-high, of course. Expect to pay upwards of $500 for a pair!

What will this mean? High heeled boots? Fuzzy stilettos? We’ll be anxious to see where the two designers end up—and we can only hope that our vision is nowhere near the truth. [WWD] Keep reading »

Nanette Lepore Tees Make Us Happy

Everyone loves a good T-shirt. And who doesn’t adore rocking a diffusion line? Now, thanks to Nanette Lepore, we have both. This spring, the designer will launch Oonagh, a line full of tees and tunics which will retail for $58 – $178. Sure, the name’s a bit hard to digest (it means “pure” in Scottish), but the styles are simple and easy to wear, while still managing to provide distinct details like cutouts and crisscross patterns. You might say the price range is a bit high for tees, but we’re already imagining living in these items come spring, which means that the cash you’ll shell out will be way worth it in the long run. More after the jump! [Nylon] Keep reading »

Thoughts From Guys On Our IM: Would You Take A Male Contraceptive Pill?

Ahh, the pill. I’ve been off and on the birth control pill for years and have been lucky enough to not have many annoying side effects. But lately there’s been more and more talk about the potential — someday! — for there to be a male contraceptive pill on the market. Gawker writer Ravi Somaiya recently wrote about why such a pill is a stupid idea. He claims that men would either be too lazy or irresponsible to take it, that they would lie about having taken it if it meant getting laid, and that women would never trust them to anyway. I mean, didn’t ya know? Men think with their penises! Personally, I found his argument to be stupid and insulting to men, but what do I know? I’m not a dude. But the guys on my IM most certainly have peens, so let’s see whether they would be down to take the male BC. Keep reading »

These Boots Are Made For … Wearing Like Tights?

Taking the whole tights-as-pants trend one step further, Blake Lively wore these thigh-high, faux-leather Stella McCartney boots as tights to the You Know You Want It book party Monday night. That’s right — she wore boots as her bottoms. I wonder how long it takes to get those on and off … [via NYMag.com] Keep reading »

Juliana Hatfield’s Critique of “Celebrity Rehab”

I loved the Blake Babies. I loved the Juliana Hatfield Three. I loved “My So-Called Life,” on which she appeared for a Christmas episode as the homeless ghost girl. For me, rocker Juliana Hatfield will always be one of the defining women of the 1990s. So I was pretty pumped when I saw that she’d penned an op-ed for Stereogum about, of all things, “Celebrity Rehab.” And let’s just saw that homegirl can really write. Here’s what she had to say:

“Pants On The Ground” — An Instant Classic


If you think the audition episodes for “American Idol” are a waste of time and not worth watching, you obviously missed out on some of the best three minutes of television last night when 62-year-old “General” Larry Platt sang his original song “Pants on the Ground” at the Atlanta auditions. Go ahead and give it a listen — I dare you not to sing along! [via YouTube] Keep reading »

No Handies For You, Pat Robertson!


Everyone’s favorite hatemonger, Pat Robertson, has been up to his usual tomfoolery lately, blaming the devastating earthquake in Haiti (which has killed more than 100,000 people) on a “pact” the nation “made to the devil” when it was emancipated from French rule. Well, our friend, comedian Sara Benincasa, is majorly fed up with Pat’s nonsense and thinks he should be taught a very serious lesson. Check out her call to action above, and then, please, go donate to relief effort via Doctors Without Borders, the Red Cross, or Yele.org. Keep reading »

Heidi Montag And Other Famous Plastic Surgery Addicts

plastic addicts heidi montag jpg
This week, which by no coincidence happens to be the week her album Superficial drops, Miss Heidi Montag graces the cover of People alongside the coverline “Addicted to Plastic Surgery.” After getting her nose reduced and her boobs majorly enhanced a few yeas ago, Heidi decided to go back for more. “”For the past three years, I’ve thought about what to have done,” she said. “I’m beyond obsessed.” In all she decided to have 10 procedures—a mini brow lift, botox, nose job revision, fat injections in her cheeks, nasolabial folds, and lips, chin reduction, her ears pinned back, breast augmentation revision (apparently to giant boobs), buttox augmentation (giggle), plus liposuction on her waist, hips, and inner and outer thighs. Now, she looks … a whole lot like a blond Jessica Rabbit and almost nothing like herself. Seriously, take a look at that close-up—it’s grotesque. [People]

But Heidi is far from the only person of note who’s addicted to, uh, revising their face. Here are other celebs who we’d like to tell to stop.
