The Grecian gown is a Hollywood starlet staple because it just oozes sex appeal and sophistication. But not when Megan Fox pairs it with stripper platform shoes and a cheap-looking belt. She would have looked stunning if she had nixed the belt and put on strappy metallic heels. [Westwood, CA, 6/22/09] Keep reading »
It’s already a concern when you’re swigging straight from the bottle. It’s a whole other problem, however, if the bottle is this Sexy Tina Milky Vodka. A Russian variety, this breast-shaped container is just asking for the drinker to put his lips to it. (“Milky vodka” apparently refers to Irish Cream.) If you’re going to drink this booby vodka, at least pour the servings into a glass, so that way you can cup them. [Lovely Package] Keep reading »
Yesterday, we showed you the extremely disturbing video of an Iranian woman, Neda, being shot at a protest in Tehran. At the time, not much was known about her—who she was, why she was at the protest, or even if her name was really Neda. But today, the details are emerging. We now know that Neda’s last name was Agha-Soltan, and that she was only 26 years old. She majored in philosophy, but even though women in Iran aren’t allowed to sing in public, she secretly took lessons and wanted to be a pop singer. In fact, she was with her voice coach when she died. The two had gone to the protest, but as it started to turn violent, headed back to their car. When Neda stepped out to get a breath of fresh air (the car had been roasting in the sun all day) she was shot, most likely by a sniper on top of a building. [NY Times] Keep reading »
When you were a teen, you were lucky if your claim to fame was getting the lead in the school play or a profile in your local newspaper. Oh, how times have changed, especially for Jane Aldridge, the 17-year-old blogger behind the fashion site, Sea of Shoes, who was asked to collaborate with Urban Outfitters to design a line of, duh, shoes. Sea of Shoes by Jane will hit stores in July with three pairs, followed by another three for a winter collection in December. No word yet on what they’ll look like, but guesses are leaning towards something edgy and high-fashion, as Jane’s favorite designers include the likes of YSL and Martin Margiela. Jane is already the enviable type—her blog shows pictures of her in an incredible (and expensive) wardrobe, as well as traveling the world with her equally gorgeous former-model-mother. Oh, and she’s been featured in Teen Vogue twice. We’re furiously jealous of her awesome life, but won’t be so stuck up as to ignore her line once it comes out. In fact, we’ll probably buy the whole collection. Imitation, you know, is the sincerest form of flattery. [BlackBook]

Kate Moss, crazy bitch. Recently, when the model got in a big ol’ fight with boyfriend Jamie Hince recently, she threw his laptop in the pool in a rage. Six songs that were recorded for The Kills’ (that’s Hince’s band) forthcoming record were stored on the laptop — and they weren’t backed up anywhere else. Kate was able to grovel and plead for Hince’s forgiveness — who knows about the rest of the band. This reminds me of the time Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes from TLC (she’s now deceased) set fire to her athlete boyfriend’s shoe collection in a fiberglass bathtub which caused his entire house to catch fire and burn down. The lesson? Think twice before acting like a crazy bitch. The damage can be more than intended. I’ve already told you about that one time I pushed a guy I was in love with into (slow-moving) traffic because he didn’t love me back. No damage was done, luckily, but I do not recommend. After the jump, some real women share their worst “crazy bitch” moments. Keep reading »
This weekend, I was skimming through the TV Guide Channel trying to figure out what to watch, when I came across the description of VH1’s “My Big Fat Fabulous Wedding,” which said something to the effect of “Dina,” “wedding,” “fiance owns catering company,” and “New Jersey.” I thought—there can’t be more than one uber-rich Dina in the state of New Jersey who is related to people that own a banquet facility. And by golly, I was right—there isn’t! Before rising to distaste on Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” housewife Dina Manzo had her wedding documented on VH1.
Soon, Dina (looking the same), Caroline (a little thinner), and even little Lexi lit up my living room as I watched the we-swear-we’re-not-part-of-the-mob clan plan the 600-person, $1 million dollar wedding. From watching Dina purchase her $10,000 Badgley Mischka dress which she called a bargain, to refraining from rolling my eyes as she demanded that little $500 butterfly decorations be placed in the flower arrangements, the only word I can think of to describe this wedding––extravagant—is an understatement.

The “Harry Potter” actress, who was just recently unveiled as the new face of Burberry, must have caught the fashion bug on set. Word on the street is, she’s in the beginning stages of designing a clothing collection with a twist: all proceeds will go to charity. Apparently, Karl Lagerfeld of Chanel is giving the actress tips on design. Okay, so can we expect lots of tweed jackets fit for a witch? [NYMag.com] Keep reading »
While she was doing press and attending premieres for the HBO film “Grey Gardens,” Drew Barrymore looked amazing. At the various premieres, her style was completely different, yet she nailed it every time. And then her style (or stylist) went on hiatus. When Drew first wore a crazypants outfit in public back in mid-May, we thought she was on her way to an ’80s-themed skating party. But then it continued.
For the past few weeks, Drew has been showing up in public wearing outfits that are outrageous, even for her. Her clothing choices have included a dress that resembles a plaid blanket, strangely placed eyeliner, a diaper-like skirt, and repeated appearances of warpaint makeup. Keep reading »
I have been truly lucky in my life in terms of the quality of female friendships I have experienced. As much as I love being in a romantic relationship with a man, the love in a girl friendship is somehow much sweeter. I tenderly look back at the hours on the phone every night giggling and gossiping over a shared secret. I remember long summer evenings at summer camp on the screened-in porch playing jacks. I can’t look at a piece of chocolate and not think back to the nights of gorging on Reese’s Pieces and watching all six hours of the BBC’s “Pride and Prejudice”… on VHS. Due to many circumstances, best girl friends have wandered in and out of my life for years. I moved, they moved, the event which brought us together ended — there are a myriad of reasons why a girl friendship can die a natural death. It is always a sad event, but when distance or time is the major culprit, these girl friendships often dissolve as innocently and seamlessly as they began. Keep reading »
