Are redheads finally experiencing the glory they deserve? Clearly, we’re highly obsessed with “Mad Men”‘s Joan Holloway (disappointingly absent, we might add, from last night’s episode!). Now Chloe Sevigny is shining a spotlight on them too, by using only redhead models in the lookbook for her Opening Ceremony collection. Called “Reds,” the catalog reads more like an art book with photographs as well as more conceptual illustrations and collages.
Apparently, reports View on Fashion, Chloe chose to go this route because she “thought that her collection of grey tweeds would look perfect on redheads.” Interesting fall fashion idea for the non-reds out there … pairing tweed with fiery accents? Maybe a blazer with a cherry-colored silk blouse underneath?

Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes took their little tyke, Suri, out for a walk in Boston, MA yesterday, where the average temperature was 51 degrees. Katie dressed appropriately. Suri, in her short, sleeveless sundress, bare legs, and peep-toe heels, was not. Is that cup of Starbucks coffee keeping her warm? Keep reading »
This may be just a random egg-shaped eos Lip Balm, but we love it! The best part about loving it is that it makes no sense why you’ll love it so much. Here are the clues to the mystery: It’s 95 percent organic, 100 percent natural, and comes in a rainbow of colors. The real reason though? This lip balm glides on smoothly (the brand name is short for Evolution of Smooth after all), fits into any small compartment, and sits up without ever teetering over.

Mice aren’t the least bit desirable when they make surprise visits to your apartment. However, when they’re not munching on that open bag of sugar in your cupboard, they can be pretty darn cute. At least that’s how designers like Marc Jacobs, Kate Spade, and Betsey Johnson feel about the lil’ rodents. They and other accessories makers have put mouse mugs on everything from earrings to shoes. Click through for 10 mice we’d happily welcome into our homes.
Rough day today? You simply must read The New York Times‘ profile of twin sisters Kristy and Katie Barry, age 24, who provide a solid eight minutes’ worth of entertainment. Kristy and Katie graduated from Rutgers last year, they’ve applied to 150 jobs, and they still haven’t landed that dream job in journalism— either sports reporting or having their own TV show.
The twins, who work as bartenders and dog walkers, have tried all the usual job search tactics—you know, mailing a package of chocolate-covered peanut butter balls to potential employers, befriending editors on Facebook, taking improv classes and playing softball to hunt for leads. No luck! Are you shocked? Keep reading »
Here’s a doozy of a celebrity lawsuit for you. Corrine Gehrls was a flight attendant on Oprah’s private jet, until she was fired in June. Apparently, a second flight attendant and Oprah’s goddaughter told the Big O that Corrine had sex with pilot Terry Pansing during a flight, and Oprah was not amused. Now, Gehrls is suing for $75,000, saying that the accusations are totally false and that she’s been defamed. The crux of her case are polygraph tests from both her and this pilot saying that they never bumped pelvises on duty. Oprah has a grand tradition of beating every lawsuit that comes her way—lord knows she can afford the lawyer bills—so do you think Gehrls has a chance on this? [Reuters] Keep reading »
When I discovered that over-the-knee boots were fall’s “must have,” I flashed to the opening scene of “Pretty Woman” and promptly dismissed them from my future. After seeing the look executed on a non-prostitute, I may have to reconsider. The thigh is the limit for Marta; her Calvin Klein Jeans dress and Zara boots both just reach. Keep reading »
The next time a guy screws me or one of my friends over, I will remember that it could be worse … I could have been engaged to celebrity chef Todd English. In a move that can only be described as sociopathic, douche castle Todd English ditched fiancée Erica Wang and 150 guests and skipped out on his $150,000 wedding at the St. Regis last week. In a statement, English said, “It was never intended this way, but our relationship has not been positive for some time.” Erica has a much different story. She thinks things went downhill when she refused to sign a prenup saying that if the couple split she would get big, fat ZERO. Get the full saga, after the jump. Keep reading »

Is Eileen Fisher now cool because she’s rejuvenated her line, or just because the New York Times says she is? You probably know Eileen Fisher as the flax-glorifying designer ex-hippies or your middle school art teacher wore. Up until now, we’ve definitely placed her in the slightly grotesque momtastic category, but now we’re reconsidering. Indeed, the Times also harps on Fisher’s recognizably lame reputation: “Those women fueled the company’s growth, but for the fashion-conscious, Eileen Fisher clothes had as much style and shape as a burqa. To them, the line was designed for graying bobos who dabbled in ceramics and had lifetime subscriptions to The New Yorker.”
But now she’s decided to make the brand “hipper,” and has done so by including some less baggy styles, more girly accents, and, most notably, an eco-line. In our humble opinion, Eileen Fisher has made some upgrades to the overall image of her company, and there are some pieces we’d consider buying were it not for the hefty price tags (who knew an EF knit suit could cost $400?). After the jump, our picks from her improved collection, with one caveat: Most of the cute stuff has already sold out. If you want something you might have to wait. Just goes to show you how much getting a feature in The New York Times style section can boost your business. [New York Times] Keep reading »
