Yoko Ono’s Drawings And Texas-Sized Hair At Threeasfour

This Fashion Week we went backstage at a number of shows, and the makeup artists and hairstylists we spoke to were calm, cool, and welcoming even when there was only an hour or so before the models had to be dressed and ready to walk down the runway. The atmosphere backstage before Threeasfour, however, was a little different. Who knows what caused the storm — maybe the complicated makeup that required absolute precision to apply or the fact that celebrities were involved in the show — but it was tense back there. The lead makeup artist and hairstylist were wonderful once they were able to step away from their work to chat, but they had their hands full. Thirty minutes before the show was to begin, someone came back and announced that hair and makeup was to be complete “AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE” so the models could get into the clothes. And, just as I was leaving, I bumped into Sean Lennon, who was being interviewed and photographed like mad, adding another element of excitement to the scene. (I also thought I saw Yoko Ono, but now I’m pretty sure it was just a cute, middle-aged Asian woman.)

The reason for Sean Lennon and Yoko Ono’s presence was because Threeasfour designers Adi Gil, Angela Donhauser, and Gabriel Asfour were inspired by Yoko Ono’s dot drawings for the spring 2010 collection. Some of the drawings were turned into prints and used on elements of the collection. The dot theme extended to the makeup, too. Check it out, after the jump! Keep reading »

Our Top 15 Fashion Week Favorites

bcbg back 091809 jpg
The New York leg of Fashion Week is over and our tired out feet are grateful. Hours on end of hustling from show to show in the sort of heels whose prettiness punishes gets a bit tiring, after all. But now that the tents are being dismantled and the designers shifting focus from finishing samples to selling their wares, we’ve got a bit of an empty feeling building in our stomachs. Having seen all the loveliness to come for Spring, going through this long cold winter won’t be too easy. In order to make it through, we’ll focus on our favorites and maybe switch to Ramen now so we can save up and buy a frock or two when they roll into stores…

Celebrities Flocked To Ann Taylor’s (?) Fashion Show

Fashion Week isn’t just a time for crazy-expensive brands that are out of most people’s price ranges to show what they have coming down the pipeline. Besides the fine looks we saw from Snuggie, Ann Taylor also hosted a show, attended by important editors and celebrities, including Elle‘s Joe Zee, Vanessa Williams, Gretchen Mol, Mena Suvari, Amanda Bynes, Kelly Rutherford, and more.

The clothes shown weren’t what the retailer will be selling come spring 2010, like most shows. Instead, they were items that are available right now. While the whole thing was a marketing ploy to get more people interested in Ann Taylor clothes, it might have worked. Vanessa Williams admitted to being a fan of the dress she wore for the event, which fit her off the rack, and Katherine McPhee told WWD she loves their accessories.

We Are Completely Braid Obsessed

Being obsessed with braids is not easy because, despite numerous attempts, I cannot figure out how to french braid my own hair. Braids should be such an easy, chic way of styling your locks when you want to look pulled together, but don’t have time for a blow out. Luckily for me, the braids that look the most modern are those that are a little messy, so if I ever make any progress on my tutelage, perfection won’t be required. Keep clicking to see a ton of celebs getting their braid on.

    Passion Tips: Hot Flirting For Sexy Wives And Lovers

    Flirting is a body language movement that portrays many sensual words, without words. I learned recently that men and women who look for partners on-line are well schooled in the art of flirting, dating and mating. Even in a relationship or marriage, a little bit of flirting goes a long way. Here are seven tips to get him in the mood for loving.

    1. Leave a sexy note in his jacket, briefcase, or on his computer screen if he is working virtually from home. Continue reading Keep reading »

    “The Tyra Show” Allegedly Coached A Guest To Say Racist Things

    Meet Vecente. He was a guest on “The Tyra Show” for the judgment day episode and said some really hateful and hurtful things about another guest because the guest has dark skin. As you can see from the video above, Vecente makes some statements that are really infuriating, but he reportedly claims the show’s producers and Tyra told him what kind of character he was supposed to portray. He also says the talk show is scripted. Vecente says his racist, politically incorrect statements were only for television purposes. [Media Takeout]

    He could be lying as a result of the backlash he’s received since his appearance aired, but I’m pretty sure I’ve caught “The Tyra Show” using an actor as a guest at least once. I watched an episode from the first season, I believe, in which this guy who Tyra said was a lawyer in real life was supposed to pretend to be a stalker so a woman could learn not to trust men she meets just because they look wealthy. A few hours after the episode ended, I saw the same guy in a commercial for something that slips my mind. He was an actor and the commercial continued to air after that episode. Keep reading »

    • Fergie has been slapped with copyright infringement lawsuit by the little-known reggae group Groundation, which alleges she stole her song “Voodoo Doll” from a track they recorded earlier. [Starpulse] — I can believe it. She totally stole Gwen Stefani‘s style.
    • Alicia Keys threw boyfriend Swizz Beats a birthday party, and his soon-to-be ex-wife showed up and verbally assaulted Alicia. [Your Tango] — Alicia is reportedly the reason the couple split up, so the ex’s behavior is kind of understandable…and embarrassing.
    • Apparently, some people need reasons to wash their hands after peeing. [Shine] — I try not to think about all the people who don’t wash hands routinely.
