The arctic chill of Russia is what inspired John Galliano’s Fall 2009 collection. From balloon-y peasant blouses to full-skirted wool coats, everything echoed an Eastern European winter. Everything except the shoes, or more to the point: these shoes. Besides the furry pom-poms, nothing about Galliano’s Fall 2009 lace-up boots says winter. But that doesn’t stop us from loving them. They’re available in an array of colors, but our favorites are the red (here) and purple. Loving don’t mean buying though. These pretty pom-poms are sure to set one back a pretty penny: several hundred (over a grand?) dollars worth. [Fab Sugar] Keep reading »
Remember that time in 2008 when Dina Lohan told TV Guide that she didn’t want Lindsay to appear on “Living Lohan” by saying, “Doing reality TV would almost be taking a step backward as far as her career goes.” Isn’t that a hoot?! Because a year and only one casting in an ABC Family movie later it seems that Lindsay is ready to take a giant leap backward for mankind. Keep reading »
Finally, some good news to come out of this sad story: Phoenix police will pursue felony child abuse charges for the parents, Liberian refugees, who abandoned their eight-year-old daughter in July — after she was allegedly gang-raped by four boys — because they were ashamed.
The boys, ages 10 to 14, who are also Liberian refugees, allegedly lured the eight-year-old girl to a storage shed, by promising her chewing gum, where the alleged assault took place. When the parents learned their daughter had been raped, they apparently told police they did not want her to return home. She has been living in protective custody since the incident.
Ditching their kid is not the main reason police are pursuing abuse charges, however. According to the Associated Press, the young girl and her family have been referred to Child Protective Services in Phoenix five times since the girl was four years old. Altogether, past reports (including several times the young girl was found by neighbors or police to be wandering around the neighborhood by herself stealing or begging for food) could comprise felony child abuse.

Let me guess: Now that you’ve had a boob job, your old bras don’t exactly fit? Hey, it’s not like the doctor said double FFs were going to be comfy to carry around, let alone easy to find a brazier for. Well, thanks to lingerie designer Le Mystère, women who have gone under the knife can now buy over-the-shoulder boulder holders that are comfortable and still stylish. While surgeons should probably just throw a sample in after the expensive surgery, these bras run from $76 to $84 smackeroos. I guess it’s double your cup, double the Victoria’s Secret price tag?

Walmart’s commercials have gotten awfully slick lately. The one above is a real tearjerker that begs the question—do these people really shop at Walmart? Maybe, but just compare them to the folks spotted at the (vaguely evil
) bargain megastore on my new favorite blog, People of Walmart
. I bet the people at Look At That F**king Hipster
are jealous of these pics. Keep reading »
Christian Louboutin sure knows his customer. First he gave women bitchy red-soled stilettos that practically beg to be taken out for a night on the town. Now he’s providing the booze. Last night, the designer launched his very own champagne in collaboration with Piper-Heidsieck, at, according to his press agent anyway, “an exclusive private press viewing of a scandalous ritual which, having thrived in the 19th century, became emblematic of a luxurious era when Europe was living life to the fullest.” Whatever that means. It’s well known that Loubs loves to swing on the trapeze, but we’re pretty sure that’s not what they’re referring to, and we were too busy to attend, sniff. Next, he’s opening up a dating service. (Just kidding on that last one, but a girl can dream.) Keep reading »

Over on Slate, a male reader wrote to Dear Prudence, asking whether it was normal that his girlfriend of six months has been wearing the same bra every day for two weeks. Was she unhygienic, or simply a normal gal? Prudie responded, saying she polled some of the cleanest women she knows and they wash their bras at most once a week.
We did a little research on the topic, and while it’s pretty easy to find information about how you should be washing your bras (preferably by hand in cold water, air-dried), how often isn’t something that has been spelled out or set in stone. Keep reading »
