I’ve just been treated to a preview of Agent Provocateur‘s new ready-to-wear fashion line (lingerie dress and trench recently worn on It girl Daisy Lowe in London, above), debuting for fall. The full review: While the cashmere corset-print dress with detachable garter may be a bit tricky to pull off, the PVC pink trench vaguely reminds us of something Karl Lagerfeld would design for Chanel. And there’s a retro black tulip dress that’s practically office-appropriate, save for gold buttons that unfasten all the way downtown. Kate Moss may have been the face of the brand before — and Daisy certainly looks cute in this outfit, too — but we think these clothes deserve a real bombshell. Perhaps a certain curvier “Mad Men” redhead? Keep reading »
Madonna’s much-anticipated music video for her song “Celebration” is out today and it features her undressing and making out with real-life boy toy Jesus Luz. The dancing boys in the video are pretty fly and Madonna is definitely still freaky-deaky herself. I could have done without the millions of Madge crotch shots, but I’m happy Madonna is sticking to what she’s good at — bangin’ club jams. Keep reading »
According to New York magazine, the male version of bimbos, himbos, are the new high-fashion trend. Chanel’s taste maker, Karl Lagerfeld, says the must-have accessory in ads are prop boy toys. Just check out his own luvah Baptiste Giabiconi, pictured here, being strung along by Jerry Hall. And on her other arm, she’s got that glamorous white Chanel bracelet— outfit complete! Of his angle, Mr. Lagerfeld told WWD:
“It’s very simple. They put the girls in a more lifestyle situation. Lonely girls can be a little sad in a fashion story. They dress not only for other girls, but also to please men. The popularity is sudden because there are a few new faces.”
Yes, bring on the fresh hot dudes! Hey, I’m a feminist, but I’m also egalitarian. I have to admit, I’m kind of excited about this objectification of men (as you might have been able to tell by the underwear models slideshow). And now high-end designers are telling me I’m not alone. Is this trend a sign that women are finally earning their market share by having their half-naked mantasies photographed? Feast your eyes on more of this tasty man-candy trend, after the jump! Keep reading »
“It’s completely false – I’ve never had it done. I would never judge those who have – if it’s the best thing for them then I don’t see a problem. But I don’t like the idea of having an operation to hold up the aging process – it’s a way to combat your neurosis. The scalpel won’t make you happy.”

Deep, dark lipstick is something very close to my cold, black heart. I was always drawn to the look of Bohemian Paris and 1920s flappers with their stunning wine-stained pouts, which eventually carried me into a goth phase that occurred sometime back in the early-to-mid nineties.
Back in those days, Revlon’s Blackberry was my drug of choice. I literally wore it every single angst-filled day. Sometime around college I chilled out and kind of stopped wearing makeup altogether, and over the years since I’ve dealt in strawberry reds and candy pinks when it comes to lip rouge, but eventually I always circle back to vampy almost-black. And what with licorice-looking lipstick being a huge beauty trend for fall (not to mention one of the trickiest–we’ll discuss), the time has come to revisit the look.
That said, didn’t I just mention something about tricky? Keep reading »
When Meredith Viera says, “The Duggar family is here and they have a very special announcement,” you know it can’t be good news. And it isn’t, if you’re at all concerned about overpopulation or the health of Michelle’s vagina. You guessed it — Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar were just thrilled to announce that they’re expecting their 19th child. As usual, MereBot just oohed and ahhed over the fantastic news, which comes only a few months after the eldest Duggar kid, Josh, announced that his new wife Anna is expecting their first child. You could almost see the terror simmering in Anna’s eyes as she looked at her future. One (almost) down, 18 to go… [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
Donatella Versace is going back to her roots (and it has nothing to do with her bleached hair). The blond fashionista and chief designer at Versace has announced plans to bring back Versus, the first collection she designed on her own for her family’s label. Versus first debuted in 1989 as the younger, chicer, and less pricey sister line to Versace, but then shut down 16 years later in 2005. After the four-year hiatus, Donatella asked “it” Brit designer Christopher Kane to create a small accessories collection for the line back in February. The blingy, studded and rock ‘n’ roll chic pieces he designed may be indicative of what we can expect for Versus’ Spring 2010 debut. “The collection reflects Versus’ DNA,” Versace told Women’s Wear Daily, “And is aimed at young people who want to dress with their own style but like to evolve and break new ground.” [Fashionologie] Keep reading »
It’s a bit crazy how with all of our technological advances, you can still be freezing in a Gore-Tex coat. Leave it to a TV infomercial product to make up for the market’s lack of microwaveable scarves. Just place the fleece fabric in the oven for one or two minutes! Special inserts in the scarf retain heat for longer periods of time, and there are even little pockets to keep your fingers toasty, too. Go with basic black or a richer tan color. Only caveat is that your clothing might smell like last night’s Lean Cuisine. [$24.98, TaylorGifts.com]
