Henry Holland’s At Topshop!

Run, do not walk to Topshop. Henry Holland — the British designer who is best friends with Agyness Deyn and the master behind the polka dot dress that a pregnant M.I.A wore to the Grammy Awards — collaborated with U.K. hosiery brand Pretty Polly to create a limited edition series of tights that non-supermodels and celebs can afford. And now they’re finally available in Topshop stores. Keep reading »

Beauty Test Drive: Ellen Sirot Hand Perfection Nail And Cuticle Treatment

I have the kind of cuticles that look dry and ragged a day or two after a manicure, and my cracked knuckles sometimes look as if I walk like a gorilla. Despite my best efforts to re-apply lotion after washing my hands and sleeping with my hands slathered in Vaseline and covered with moisturizing gloves, my hands never quite achieve hand model-level beauty. Every winter I’m on a quest to find a miracle in a bottle or tube that will give me soft, weather- and life-proof hands, but spring usually rolls around before that ever happens.

This year, though, I’ve gotten a head start and I think I might have even won the race. For a week now, I’ve been using the Ellen Sirot Hand Perfection Nail and Cuticle Treatment. It contains omega-3 fatty acids to lessen moisture loss, vitamins A and E to neutralize damage from free radicals, caprylic (derived from coconuts) to moisturize, and rosemary and lavender extracts as an antiseptic. I noticed smoother and more supple cuticles after the first application, and the results only improved as I applied the Nail and Cuticle Treatment at least three times a day or whenever I thought about it. I didn’t even follow-up religiously with the Night Solution for Hands, but can report that my hands now feel nourished and toned, too. While I’m happy with the results of the cuticle treatment, I’m not sure if I’d spend $22 on it and forget the $75 for the Night Solution. What do you do for dry hands? Keep reading »

This Is What I Sleep On In My Dreams

Apparently, New Zealand held something called a “challenging how we sleep” project/competition, and David Trubridge’s Float Bed won. IKEA, please get on ripping this off, OK? [Outblush] Keep reading »

Happily Ever After Someday

We all know the stories, a beautiful young woman meeting her Prince Charming, falling in love and living happily ever after. What these storytellers fail to mention is that you may have to kiss a lot of frogs before finding your Prince and once you do, there are no guarantees that it will end in happily ever after. In most cases, it will end without the birds singing and wrapped in the pretty bow that we remember from “Cinderella.” Keep reading »

Sex & Celluloid: In Defense Of Nicolas Cage

Who’s looking forward to the Werner Herzog re-imagining of “Bad Lieutenant,” which has gotten good reviews but has a laughable trailer in which Nicolas Cage talks about his lucky crack pipe? Anyone? Keep reading »

Olsens To Design For JCPenney!

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have a long way since their days of cheap-o Wal-Mart fashions. And were it not for the serious success of their high-style line, The Row, the news that they’re now designing a juniors line for JCPenney might have been laughed off as lame mall trash. There’s little info on this JCPenney collaboration other than that the range will be called Olsenboy (menswear inspired, perhaps?). Sadly, a “juniors” line would mean that in order to fit into the styles, we’d either have to bring our 14-year-old selves back form the past, or lose some 100 pounds. Target, can you please sign these ladies up for a project? [NY Mag]

There’s also some highbrow news for the Olsens—this week the twins were inducted into the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA), joining talents like Alexander Wang and Jason Wu. Well done. [NBC's The Thread Blog] Keep reading »

10 Celebrity Strip Club Adventures

In kinda the sweetest gesture ever, in a backwards sort of way, Matt Damon reportedly brought a posse to the New York Hustler Club, including his wife, Luciana Bozán Barroso. Instead of getting a lap dance from an actual stripper, Matt was perfectly content getting down with the mother of his children. A witness said, “He bought dances for his friends. His wife was dancing for him. The club normally doesn’t allow civilians to dance, but they made an exception for him.” [NY Post]

Since for some reason, men are obligated to go to strip clubs to assert their manly virility, it’s nice to hear that there are men out there who realize their wives are sexual beings and find them more compelling than random women in g-strings. These other celebrities weren’t so charming on their strip club jaunts. Keep reading »

Noooo! We’ll Soon Have To Pay For Hulu

Sit down. I’ve got some bad news to tell you. Hulu’s deputy chairman, Chase Carey, revealed at a conference this week that the watch-all-the-TV-you-want-for-free site won’t be gratis for much longer. As soon as next year, they’re looking into making Hulu a subscription service. “I think a free model is a very difficult way to capture the value of our content,” said Carey. “I think what we need to do is deliver that content to consumers in a way where they will appreciate the value.” I appreciate the value, Chase! Does that change anything? [EW] Keep reading »

Quote Of The Day: Rachel Bilson Names Her Fashion Icons

“I really look up to a lot of my peers and how they dress. I love to admire other people. Ashley Olsen I think is great, Diane Kruger, Sienna Miller — all those people obviously have good style, so it’s nice to see that around you. Your peers surround you, and they all look good, so that’s great.”
