D’oh! We sure were fooled—apparently that dude who got specs inked on his face was part of a viral marketing plan from Ray-Ban, which has pulled off shenanigans like this in the past. Although … it’s still unclear whether glasses boy got a real tattoo. [Looks real to me. -- Editor] What would be weirder: getting that tat because you wanted it or getting it because someone paid you to? [Adverblog] Keep reading »
Most American motorcyclists pride themselves on looking grungy, but we’re sure there’s a market for helmut couture somewhere (we’re thinking Paris and Milan): Karl Lagerfeld has teamed up with Jérôme Coste to create this limited-edition, tweed number which is also outfitted with an iPod pocket. The price? A cool as a cucumber $1,737. [Luxury Launches] Keep reading »
I’m going to be a bridesmaid for the first time this summer and don’t have a clue what this entails. I know I’ll be wearing a dress of someone else’s choosing and standing at the front of a church for a long time, but what do I have to do for the bride from now until the wedding day? Who knows? So, when I heard there was a book that would tell me all of the expectations associated with the position, I said, “Send it over!” After reading The Knot Bridesmaid Handbook: Help the Bride Shine Without Losing Your Mind, I feel like I have a lot of work ahead of me; from what I read, being a bridesmaid is practically a full-time job and I didn’t even know I was supposed to do half of the responsibilities mentioned in the book! Keep reading for five things every bridesmaid should know that I didn’t. Keep reading »
Over the weekend, Josh Duhamel and Fergie renewed their wedding vows — only one year after they’d originally tied the knot. But don’t pop the bubbly just yet. Although Duhamel set up the surprise ceremony, the enduring gesture comes only months after a stripper alleged that she and Duhamel had an affair, a claim both Fergie and Duhamel have denied. Will the renewals be enough to heal their marriage? Experts tell PopEater that the next year will determine the strength of their relationship.
After a Hollywood couple ties the knot, hurls the bouquet and sets off for years (or weeks) of wedded bliss, some decide to relive those wedding day butterflies and renew their vows. But how soon is too soon? Read more … Keep reading »
Oooh, this movie “Chloe” looks good
—and I’m not just saying that because this trailer is in French! Julianne Moore
and Liam Neeson
play a husband and wife and Amanda Seyfried
is the escort
whom Moore hires to test her husband’s fidelity. But really her
fidelity is the one being tested when a smoldering Seyfried seduces the red-headed siren into some girl-on-girl sexytime. Honestly, the Moore/Seyfried kiss isn’t that hot … but Amanda Seyfried in pull-up stockings and garters
is scorched into my brain.
Really, who needs English? Keep reading »
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 »
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 »
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 »
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 »
