Nothing is funnier to me than cheesy, posed portraits à la Awkward Family Photos. Whether it be a weirdo image with laser beams in the background or a ridonculous Christmas photo, it’s clear that these pics only serve one purpose—to entertain onlookers. But there is one thing more hilarious than bad family photos. Awesomely BAD Engagement Photos! Yes friends, it’s OK to laugh … love IS funny. If you’ve recently gotten engaged, this site may make you re-think that photo session you have planned for next week … ’cause hanging upside down from a tree while kissing is totally lame. After the jump, the best of worst. Keep reading »
You’ve got to love a couple that looks like they share a closet. Strolling Bond Street, a famous shopping stop in London, Fiona’s Gant blazer and preppy loafers look smart in the early autumn. Her best accessory? Her boyfriend, Gustav. Hopefully, Gustav is as good a match in other ways as he is in the wardrobe department. Keep reading »

After a weekend of bopping around in jeans and a sweatshirt, I felt like dressing up a little today: Heels mean business. What helps you get through the first day back at work after a relaxing weekend?
I am an insomniac. And I don’t care how many times my shrink tells me to “try deep breathing” or “meditate before bedtime” or “stop drinking caffeine,” I’m still going to go for the Ambien on sleepless nights. Here’s one bedtime story she’s probably never heard: Pearly Dreams, the toothpaste that puts you to sleep. Keep reading »
Apparently, Anthropologie is jealous of the attention that stores like H&M, Topshop, and Uniqlo are getting for their designer collaborations. So the romantic brand nabbed Brian Wolk and Claude Morais of Ruffian to create four collections which will appear in 55 stores, beginning in November. Sadly, no pics yet, but think a total ’40s style look, complete with coats, silk dresses, and their very own prints. If the stockings look anything like their polka-dot design that walked down the runway in the fall ’09 collection, then it’s sure to sell out immediately.
But it wouldn’t be an Anthropologie collection without just a tidbit of home goods. So, of course, Ruffian-style candles and glasses will be available for purchase. Plus, come spring, you’ll be able to lie on sheets by the boys. Basically they’re taking over the store and our homes. And you know what? We are totally OK with that! [WWD]

This sculptural beehive was spotted at Danielle Scutt’s showing at London Fashion Week. And while we fully salute this Hair Model Citizen, we can’t say this is a runway trend we’ll be rocking anytime soon. [London, 9/21/09] Keep reading »
All weekend, I’ve been humming “Don’t Be Tardy To The Party.” This is the ultimate sign that I am a “Real Housewives of Atlanta” addict. So I was excited to see that BravoTV.com has posted the images of the ladies that photographer Derek Blanks shot a few weeks back. NeNe Leakes creative director for the shoot, picked a pair of alter egos for each woman to embody. Originally, she wanted Kim Zolciak to pose as a black woman, but Kim wasn’t so into that idea. “It would have required me to be painted black, which is SO insensitive,” Kim wrote on her blog. “And NeNe is mad that I won’t do something that would not only disrespect her but an entire race of people?! Not happening.” Instead, Kim posed for the photo above as a Stepford Wife and a rich wife. Only, Kim was surprised to see the words “rich wife” replaced with “mistress” and swears on her blog that she never agreed to that. “Who in the hell would agree to be a mistress??” she wrote. “I wish these ladies would stop acting like I am the only one who has dated someone in a dissolving marriage.”
After the jump, see all the photos. Keep reading »
