Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
One of my favorite fashion photographers is Solve Sundsbo. The London-based photog hails from Norway, and his images are eye-popping, brilliant, and arresting. Now, Sundsbo is collaborating with Paris-based fashion house Surface to Air to create a series of wearables that bear his images. Their line includes limited-edition dresses, tops, and bags, all priced around $200. Check out the slightly NSFW shot of one of the bags after the jump. [fashionologie] Keep reading »
Supermodel Cindy Crawford shares her dimple-woes in the September issue of Redbook:
“I have cellulite. “I admit it. But sometimes I just say, ‘Screw it, I am going to wear a bikini.’”
We can’t understand why stars like Cindy, who at 43 has a bod more rockin’ than we’ll ever have, feel the need to talk about their cellulite. Ladies, it doesn’t make you any more “real” to us. It mostly makes us hate you a little more because you have absolutely nothing to complain about. Our cellulite could beat yours any day. Click through to read what Hayden Panettiere, Reese Witherspoon, Sandra Bullock, and other stars have said about a subject very few of them have experience with.
If you attended an arts college like I did, then you know that the constant competition to be the best, the brutal critiques, and the pressure to push the boundaries is enough to make you want to jump off a bridge. And in a move that can only be described as supremely post-postmodern, that’s what Swedish art student Anna Odell attempted to do as a performance art piece for a final project—jump off the Liljeholmen Bridge.
Um, weird. A new study shows that women who use Tamoxifen, a drug mean to prevent estrogen-sensitive cancers like breast cancer, for more than five years are four times more likely to develop a non-estrogen-sensitive tumor in their other breast. The new tumors, although uncommon, are more difficult to treat. Scary, but docs are quick to question the study, which only examined women’s chances of developing cancer in their second breast. Some said it could just be a “statistical fluke” and pointed out that none of the women who took Tamoxifen for one to four years developed a new tumor. Others are worried that the results of this study could make patients scared to take the drug, which has been proven effective in keeping cancer from recurring or spreading. Eek.

We’ve been chatting away about Anna Wintour and Diane von Furstenberg’s mega project, Fashion’s Night Out, all month long, but today the video has arrived. Watch Anna (being all smiley/giggly/cutesy!), Diane, Sarah Jessica Parker, P. Diddy, Isaac Mizrahi, and many more, explain why they want you to shop so dang badly. Enjoy! [Stylelist] Keep reading »
