If You Want To Look Dirty, Apply Your Makeup With A Sock Like They Did At Erin Wasson x RVCA

Before model-turned-designer Erin Wasson’s show on Friday night, we spoke with Charlotte Willer, global makeup artist for Maybelline New York, about the dusty, desert-inspired makeup the models sported. Willer wanted the makeup to reflect “this cool girl, a fashion icon who’s been in the desert all day.” So, if a cool girl/fashion icon like Wasson spends all day in the desert, what does she look like? She’s wearing tons of black eyeliner, and her face is caked with dirt. Keep reading »

Bill Maher Can’t Handle His (Tila) Tequila


Revelation! Bill Maher is a d-bag. About 20 seconds into this clip of his “New Rule” routine, he says:
“New rule: stop acting surprised someone choked Tila Tequila! The surprise is that someone hasn’t choked this bitch sooner.

Oh no, he did not go there. Keep reading »

Girl Talk: Do You Have A Great Love Story?

I’m sitting alone in my apartment on a rainy night. I’m restless, mildly bored, and, yes, I’ll admit it, but please don’t tell anyone … lonely. It’s days like this that I’m sure that there’s no more love in store for me — all of the epically momentous possibilities must have already passed me by. Somehow I blinked and missed them. It’s in moments like this that I allow myself the small indulgence of thinking about Sebastian.

Our story had all of the makings of a great love story. Once upon a time we met one evening in a dark, crowded party. He told me I was beautiful. I was young enough for him to appear larger than life. We kissed on the sidewalk in the rain. I fell hard for him — hard like scrape-me-off-the-floor-with-a-spatula hard. But we were wrong for each other in every way. We were young, immature, and troubled. It ended tragically – Sebastian stood me up on a cold, snowy New Year’s Eve and the two of us never spoke again. I went on with my life. Keep reading »

Will Not Wack For Jesus

One dude is going to extreme lengths to stop himself from masturbating. Brian “Head” Welch, who used to play guitar is that awful band KoRn (yeah, I said it!) and is already heavily tattooed, has gotten JESUS tattooed across his knuckles so he’s deterred from playing his own instrument. How not metal. He explains:

“The Jesus tattoo on my hand keeps me from masturbating and I haven’t been with a woman since my ex-wife left me almost five years ago. I go to those extremes to be like Christ and it works for me.”

Now I know as well as anyone how hard it can be to get over a bad breakup, but seriously? [Needles And Sins]

Red Carpet Slideshow: Lady Gaga, Amber Rose, Solange Knowles Kill It At The VMAs

Lady Gaga, Kanye West & Amber Rose, Alexa Chung

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock — or just watching “True Blood” and “Mad Men” — then you know last night was the MTV Video Music Awards. It was a fairly exciting show, what with Kanye West acting like an ass, Lady Gaga gettin’ her menstruation on, and Janet Jackson paying tribute to brother Michael. Fashion-wise, there were a lot of trends to watch on the red carpet: short, sparkly minis; edgy ‘dos; metallics; and loads of black abounded. Hands down, I thought the fiercest was Solange Knowles showin’ up big sister Beyoncé, while Lady Gaga was certainly, and expectedly, the freakiest. “The Hills” gals donned, for the most part, totally cute wearable looks, while Shakira and Pink wore the same leather mini (scandal!). The worst-dressed, in my book, went to Cheetah Girl Adrienne Bailon and “Twilight”‘s Ashley Greene. Oh and Alexa Chung? Effing perfection as always.

Unranked Kim Clijsters Shows The U.S. Open Who’s Boss

Last week everyone was all abuzz about Melanie Oudin, the 17-year-old kicking butt at the U.S. Open. Turns out, we got excited about the wrong underdog. Yesterday, unranked Kim Clijsters sealed the deal on the U.S. Open women’s title. Kim was ranked numero uno in the world a few years back, and won the U.S. Open in 2005. But in 2007, she got hitched, retired from tennis, and popped out a baby. Earlier this year, she was invited to play an exhibition game at Wimbledon’s Centre Court, and had such a blast that she decided to come out of retirement. She went into the U.S. Open not expected to do very well but rocked her first few matches. People started really paying attention to her when she knocked out Venus Williams. Next, she took out Serena in the now-infamous game where Serena exchanged words with a line judge. (By the way, Serena was officially fined $10,500 for the incident over the weekend.) When she pounded Caroline Wozniacki in the finals, Kim became the first mama to win the tournament since 1980. Kim, thanks for showing us that we can do it all. And by “all” I mean raising a baby while perfecting a mean backhand. [CNN] Keep reading »

Quick Vid: Redheads Get The Party Started


Three thousand natural redheads recently made a pilgrimage to the Dutch city of Breda to celebrate ginger-colored hair. Not one onlooker yelled “firecrotch” for fear of a massive beatdown. Meanwhile, due to her recent blond shenanigans, Lindsay Lohan was not invited. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

Miss J.’s Tips On How To Work A Runway

Maybe it’s that I was drinking—no, chugging—the Fashion’s Night Out Kool-Aid the other night, but, gotta say, getting out and about and shopping felt pretty damn good, though not in a “I’m slapping down my credit card” way. Anyways, I wasn’t the only one who turned up at H&M’s Herald Square store. Miss J. Alexander of “America’s Next Top Model” also attended. But he (or if you ask some of Miss J. superfans, whom I had the pleasure of meeting in the “ANTM” trenches — “she”) had more on her night’s agenda than just riffling through the racks for the perfect, red winter coat. (Though there were loads of people on line for the cash register with armloads of clothes!) Miss J. was giving runway strutting lessons. Man, did people just eat it up. The line to get some catwalking tips was—I kid you not—out the door and down the street. It was madness — sheer lunacy!

So how do you rock your thang down a runway? After the jump, a bunch of tips from the catwalk vet—and a few photos of her doing what she does best. Keep reading »

“New Moon” Trailer Eclipses Our Expectations


Some people tuned in to the MTV Video Music Awards for the Michael Jackson tribute, to see Janet Jackson belt out “Scream.” Others tuned in for Beyoncé‘s “Single Ladies” dance number or to see Lady Gaga‘s insane wardrobe choices. But let’s face it: a high proportion of last night’s viewership tuned in to see MTV’s exclusive trailer for “New Moon,” which premiered halfway through the show. I’ve never been a “Twilight“-head, but now even I am seriously looking forward to November 20th. Keep reading »
