Hipster porn aside, you know you love those shirts. Something else that’s near and dear to your heart? Sesame Street. To commemorate the show’s 40th anniversary, American Apparel sifted through the archives to select original line drawings of Jim Henson’s characters for limited edition T-shirts that will be sold in 25 stores and online later this month. Not only are they cute and — given our current obsession with all things ’70s and ’80s — surprisingly modern-looking, unlike Lindsay Lohan and Ungaro’s design FAIL, this is one designer collaboration we’re actually feeling.

Ikea, watch out. H&M is set to take over your entire world.
H&M gave shoppers all over a thrill just a few weeks ago when the store announced that Internet shopping would finally be available in the coming months. But they’re not stopping with that. Now, they’re ready to get into the home goods arena, so not only your wardrobe can be filled with H&M, but your home can be decked out as well. So far the site features bed linens and bathroom towels, but there’s also a section for organic cotton and rugs, so really it’s only a matter of time before it’s a full blown Ikea competitor. Let the cheap yet stylish Swedish homewares war begin! Ironically, the first area that H&M has begun to cater their sheets and pillows to is Sweden.

Watch out Internets! The First Lady of France, Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, has just arrived at the party, and man, has she got a few things to say! Just yesterday, Bruni-Sarkozy made her first foray into the online world—and promptly crashed her own site with all the juicy nuggets of inner thoughts and general self-promotion. (Could you image MObama pulling this sort of thing? Barry and the White House press crew would not be happy.) Anyway, as the Daily Mail reports, the French First Lady mostly focuses on what she calls a “beauty contest” between Michelle, Princess Letizia of Spain, and herself—with each woman vying for sartorial and hair/makeup supremacy. Yes, she actually came out with it. And in those terms. What else did she blab about? A few inside-voice observations unleashed, after the jump.

Kate Moss clearly missed the memo regarding pasties and Nippies being so hot right now. Always the trendsetter, she opted for a more “natural” look for her front row appearance at Yves Saint Laurent’s Spring 2010 show. And it looks like it was cold in there, too. [Paris, 10/6/09] Keep reading »
With the shocking and depressing news that Conde Nast shuttered not one, but four magazines yesterday — Gourmet and Cookie, plus two bridal magazines — comes the harsh realization that glossies are not what they used to be. If a powerhouse like Conde is suffering, well, you know it’s bad.
But certainly this can’t mean the end of magazines everywhere? Enter the online salvation. Domino recently (sort of) revived itself, in the form of an online rag called Lonny, and now it seems publishing giant Time Inc. is sniffing around the Hulu format. Wait, huh? Keep reading »
Every once in a blue moon, a Tuesday will roll around when the album releases are so good that you think about ditching work just so you can download everything and give it all a good listen, with no spreadsheets or TPS report to kill your buzz. Today, my friends, is one of those Tuesdays. After the jump, check out the new offerings from Air, Gossip, Built To Spill, The Raveonettes and, yes, the Backstreet Boys. Keep reading »
Mya Harrison earned 27 points for her rumba dance on last night’s episode of “Dancing with the Stars
.” The judges gushed on and on about her great performance, which I have to say was very sexy and entertaining. But ever since Stacy Keibler competed on “DWTS” in season two I’ve had the same question: Is it fair for trained dancers to compete against Average Joe celebrities? Keep reading »
My favorite thing about this photo, which is seriously making my ovaries coo, is that Icelandic singer Bjork has had the same hairstyle since she was three years old. Same fierce unibrow too! [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »
In fashion, it’s all about the details — from the choice of buttons to the hemline — and designer Karl Lagerfeld is a master of the little things. While much of the talk about the Chanel spring 2010 show has been about the barnyard setting and Lily Allen‘s live performance, we noticed an interesting-yet-subtle element: Some of the models sported Chanel bracelet and garter temporary tattoos. Layered on their wrists and upper thighs, the fake tattoos resembled chic chains, rather than tacky tribal bands. Wanna try out a similar look for a few bucks? Pick up a few temporary inks from a 25-cent vending machine at the grocery store. Keep reading for closeups and online purveyors that sell similar faux ink. Keep reading »
Have you guys heard of this guy Robert Pattinson? Apparently, he stars in some little indie movies called “Harry Potter” and “Twilight“? Well, apparently, lots of people—mainly of the teenage girl variety—are sooooo into him that he’s the subject of a new documentary called “Robsessed,” which is being distributed by Revolver Films and should be out before “New Moon.” The doc looks into his younger years and current life—how he got into acting, how he got cast in these flicks, what kind of socks he wears. Do they really think they’re going to sell more than five copies of this thing? [EW] Keep reading »
