Catfight! Stella McCartney Versus Bono’s Wife

Apparently, Bono‘s wife, Ali Hewson, isn’t as charitable a soul as her husband. The UK’s Daily Mail is reporting that the claws have come out—and Stella McCartney is the target! Ali and her business partner, Bryan Meehan, have a company called Nude Skincare and are feeling cranky about the name of Stella’s new fragrance, “Stella Nude,” an eau de toilette version of her Stella perfume. To court they go, over a single word, and in the process, will spend boatloads because their skincare line may be confused with the fashion designer’s perfume. Bono: Talk some sense into wifey!

Women In Labor Need To Lay Off The Twittering

In the world of Facebook and Twitter, it’s beginning to feel like not much is sacred or private. On Tuesday, Sara Williams, wife of Twitter CEO Evan Williams, pushed the boundaries of discretion even further, when she tweeted about being in labor … while it was happening. She told her 14,000-plus followers when her water broke, when her contractions got painful, and when she got her epidural. And she’s not alone. Some women find it necessary to dish the deets of childbirth live via Twitter, including Erykah Badu. Keep reading »

Happy Anniversary, Woodstock! Hippie Chic Is Back

WWD came up with a fun project to help celebrate Woodstock’s 40th anniversary. Because designers have been long-inspired by hippie style, they asked several young designers–including current fashion darling Alexander Wang and Jeremy Laing–to sketch their own interpretations of hippie chic. We’re especially fond of Prabal Gurung’s fantastical skirt made up of music fans from the Woodstock crowd and Peter Som’s flowing two-piece frock surrounded by colorful swirls. Totally psychedelic, indeed. Check their site to see the full slideshow. [WWD] Keep reading »

Reader Elissa spotted this stenciled graffiti on a sidewalk in Houston, TX.

Activist Suu Kyi Under House Arrest For Another 18 Months

Nobel Peace Prize winner and pro-democracy activist Aung San Suu Kyi has been under house arrest in Myanmar for 14 years, and her sentence has been extended by a year and a half after a military court convicted her of violating the terms of her detention. The “violation” occurred when an uninvited American, John Yettaw, swam across the lake to Suu Kyi’s house for a visit. He got three years in prison and another three of hard labor. Keep reading »

Go Green While You Get Clean

For those of you who worry about wasting water while taking a shower, designer Jun Yasumoto has a solution for you. The Phyto-Purification bathroom is more like an ecosystem than a place to wash up. It’s super earth-friendly. The water from the shower and sink flows into a base, where it’s filtered, and then reused. In other words, this green bathroom recycles your water. The plants get H2O, and you get to live out your fantasy of showering outdoors. [Jun Yasumoto] Keep reading »

The Virgin Mary Makes A Guest Appearance … In A Condom

If you read our Condom Commandments, you know why you should use condoms. But let’s not discount the miraculous reasons to use rubbers. You may receive a religious message! One unsuspecting dude pulled off his jimmy to discover the Virgin Mary’s likeness crafted from the fruit of his loins. Check it out here. I wonder if this will encourage the Catholic Church to change their stance on birth control? More importantly, I wonder what he did with the condom? If he saved it, that’s gross. But if he threw it away, that’s blasphemous. Keep reading »

“NYC Prep”: Don’t Go Changin’

Parting is such sweet sorrow. Or is it? Last night, we said goodbye to the Manhattan prepsters in the season finale of “NYC Prep.”

What have learned over the past few months from watching New York’s real “elite” private school kids? They dress really well, their lives aren’t as interesting as “Gossip Girl” (but they want them to be), and they like to air kiss a lot. While the show did make a mockery of the prep-school scene at first (and, boy, were school administrators unhappy), it managed to reveal some redeeming qualities. At times, these teenager portraits rang true, especially when it came to awkward, trying-to-be-cool conversation (Taylor), sky-high goals (Camille, Jessie), and the ups and downs of friendship (PC).

Open Casting Calls: Keepin’ It Too Real?

A few weeks ago, “Mad Men” held an open casting call. Anyone could submit a photo of themselves dressed ’60s-style for a chance to appear on the show. Last week, New Yorkers were invited to try out for a role in “Sex and the City 2.” The roles that needed filling were for “fashion models, celebrity types, upscale socialites, urban club goers, gays and lesbians.” Today, we heard about an open casting call in Holland for “What’s Wrong with Virginia,” a movie starring Ed Harris and Jennifer Connelly. The studio says they’re looking for “real looking people of all shapes and sizes.” [MLive] Keep reading »

Holla! Another New Moon Teaser Trailer


It doesn’t take much to get “Twilight” fans in a tizzy. This new 14-second teaser trailer for “New Moon” is certainly doing the trick. What does the trailer show us? To, uh, not have high expectations for the acting and dialogue in this flick. OK, fine. We won’t judge it on this tiny snippet. But I think we can all agree that the highlight here is Taylor Lautner‘s bod. He’s over 18, right? Keep reading »
