Oh Alexander Wang. We had such faith in you. You seemed so down to earth with your Craigslist models and minimalist designs. And then you had to go and do…this. A jean jacket with leather sleeves straight out of Aeropostale’s 1992 catalogue. Shame. Shame! Guess everyone has a flop now and then. Thoughts? [Lagarconne.com] Keep reading »
So how do celebs pick up women? Well, Adam Sandler doesn’t do it very well. His “Funny People” costar Leslie Mann revealed that, back in the day, Sandler tried to hit her up at a night club by writing something really lame (she thinks it was “nice back”) on a cocktail napkin in ketchup. He had his friend bring it to her table—like the go-between gal you used in second grade to tell that boy you liked him. Needless to say, they didn’t speak that night. [People]
After the jump, see how Adam’s game compares to other famous peeps. Keep reading »
To call Philip Treacy just a milliner is a severe understatement. While he is best known for his award-winning hat designs and for his collaborations with Alexander McQueen and Chanel, did you know he’s also the design director for the g Hotel in Galway, Ireland? It’s no surprise that his whimsical hat designs have translated into hotel design as well. From the bubblegum Pink Lounge to seashell decorated rooms, Philip explains his designs as “hats people love to wear. With the g, I have created a place where people will love to be.” The g has 101 rooms including the Evangelista Suite (where you cannot “wake up for less than $10,000 a day”). All rooms have Treacy-designed Frette linens and even butler service! Continue reading… Keep reading »
A study came out this week proving what anyone who’s ever lived in The Big Apple probably already guessed: Manhattan is the nation’s thinnest city. The study looked at body-mass indexes of folks all across the country, and determined that New Yorkers tended to be the slimmest. Still, 42 percent of Manhattanites are overweight or obese—but that’s not bad when you compare it to the national average of 67 percent. So why all the skinny minnies in New York City? Because New York is a hub for many weight-conscious industries, like modeling, acting, and media production. Also, because almost no one owns a car, people end up walking everywhere. Oh, and maybe people are trying to become the physical equivalent of skyscrapers? [New York Times] Keep reading »
How convenient for rich tweeners who need both a $300 pair of shoes and “Twilight” t-shirt: Nordstrom will be hawking “New Moon” clothes come October 15. R-Patz obsessives can snatch up both a $32 “Team Edward” tee and a $30 necklace that features the family crest of the fictional Edwards clan. (There are tank tops and plaid jackets, too.) The price range is cheaper than we’d suspect from Nordstrom, but it’s also merch we’d expect to find at Hot Topic instead. Guess Nordstrom must really need the clams? [NY Daily News] Keep reading »
Who says you can’t play with your food? While we never thought “adorable” was a word we’d use to describe our lunch, these Hello Kitty and cartoon-inspired bento boxes merit the term. Yum. [Irresistable.fr] Keep reading »
Cotton is a white poofball, an American Eskimo dog with perky eras and a long, lolling tongue. But underneath her cuddly exterior masked a mouthful of sharp teeth. Small-child-shredding, lawsuit-spurring sharp teeth.
Cotton’s owners tried all kinds of things to stop him from biting: a muzzle, puppy classes, books, videos, a dog aggression expert, a low protein diet and even an herbal remedy. They even tried less, uh, kind routes, like pepper spray and empty soda cans filled with rocks. (Jeez.) But nothing makes Cotton chill out.
So Cotton’s owners, the Krieger family, did something unusual. They had a doggie dentist zap away four millimeters of the pooch’s teeth using a laser. Keep reading »
