Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
Anyone can wear a pencil skirt as long as the fit is right. The skirt shouldn’t be too tight, but should skim the hips, butt, and thighs instead. If you’re a skinny woman, then a pencil skirt will give the illusion of a curvier figure. A high-waisted pencil skirt will highlight the hourglass figure of a more ample woman. And just like the pencil skirt is flattering on any body type, it’s also appropriate for almost any occasion. Keep clicking for where and how to rock a pencil skirt.
It was a super hot week for Hollywood blockbusters and, more importantly, their directors. Too bad they don’t get any actual screen time. Peter Jackson was the lord of the red carpet at the “Lovely Bones” premiere. Yep, the man seriously went from hobbit to hot. Who knew what was hiding under all that facial hair and those 70 extra pounds? While all the tweens were swooning over “New Moon,” I was dreaming about sinking my teeth into director Chris Weitz. Were you aware of his dreaminess? And of course, my long-time director crush, Wes Anderson, was looking fantastic as always at the premiere of “Fantastic Mr. Fox.” If I must choose, here’s who I’d shun, shag, and marry.

Someone should tell the craftsman who whittled the lil’ pole dancer on these 7″ wedges that stripper heels are usually made of clear plastic. But, hey, whatevs. The $175 price tag on eBay is a steal for such an, um, unique item. (Although we’re pretty sure falling off 7″ tall shoes will break your neck.) [Trend de la Creme] Keep reading »
With over-the-top resorts, year-round sunshine, killer shopping, picturesque beaches, and the world’s tallest building, Dubai quickly became the celebrity destination of choice. Not only were the Beckhams and Jolie-Pitts falling all over themselves to jet-set to the Persian Gulf—many were even investing in real estate there. Well, until the government went public with their $80-
millionbillion worth of financial woes. Now that Dubai is donezo, where will the celebrities go to hide away from the unwashed masses? Morocco. Just this past weekend, a bunch of A-listers jetted to Marrakesh to celebrate the opening of a Chopard boutique at the La Mamounia Hotel. Jennifer Aniston, Gwyneth Paltrow, Orlando Bloom, Salma Hayek, Miranda Kerr, and Juliette Binoche were just a few of the guests in attendance. Could this signify a renaissance of the ‘60s bohemian hot spot? [Celebitchy]
After the jump, some “now” destinations where celebrities will be heading in 2010.
A year ago, 21-year-old Jesus Pinto na Luz (that’s his full name) was a sizzling Brazilian fashion model, pulling in $500 a day, and assigned to a high-profile photo shoot for W magazine with a very famous co-star. Jesus played the uber-sophisticated lover of his fellow Rio hotel patron, Madonna, who saw something special in the young hunk. His agent said that he sent Jesus to the shoot and hasn’t seen him since.
Today, Jesus is a sizzling hot, blindingly expensive fashion model and new D.J., with an asking price in the tens of thousands of dollars — thanks to an unspoken chance that girlfriend Madonna might accompany Jesus along to any of his assignments. It’s a gamble that many seem willing to take, and so the public is quickly getting to know a lot more than we thought we would want to know about Jesus Luz. Like …
Uh oh. It just became an even worse week to be named “Tiger Woods.” A 24-year-old L.A. cocktail waitress named Jaimee Grubbs, who appeared on trashy VH1 dating show “Tool Academy,” claims she has also boinked the very married golf pro. According to a story on UsMagazine.com, Grubbs claims she and Woods had a two-and-a-half year-long relationship and engaged in 20 sexual encounters. Grubbs also claims to possess 300 text messages from Woods and a condemning voicemail in which Woods says his wife, Elin Nordegren, has discovered their affair. Eeek! But once again: take these rumors with a grain of salt, innocent until proven guilty, fame-hungry bitches, etc., etc. Still, we’ve got to say, it would seem that between Grubbs and Rachel Uchitel, the woman whom The National Enquirer accused of being “the other woman,” Tiger has a thing for party girls, doesn’t he?

We’ve been noticing an awful lot of flat ankle boots lately and can’t get enough of them. Style blogger Rumi Neely of Fashion Toast is particularly badass in her use of our new favorite footwear, pairing them with cropped pants and mini skirts alike. We’re big fans of her Jimmy Choo for H&M faux, snake-skin booties, but also like the idea of something a bit more, well, toned down. Either way, they’re going on the shopping list. Keep reading »
