If you spend enough time in Sephora, you’ll see some disconcerting things, like booger-y children sticking their fingers in tubs of lip gloss, or gross grownups abusing their communal lipstick-testing privileges. But a few days ago while strolling around the makeup store, I witnessed a sight I’ve never seen: a woman (I assume she was the mom) swiping blue eye shadow on a young girl who must have been about four years old. I’ve seen lots of kids with painted nails out and about, but never little girls wearing adult makeup.
Not to sound like an old grump complaining about “the kids these days,” but eye shadow on a four-year-old? Really? Isn’t that a bit young? Playing with makeup never appealed to me when I was a little girl myself, though, so perhaps I just don’t understand. Keep reading »
Kim Kardashian rarely looks like she could go by the name Azriel or Budgie. So I’m kind of digging her super goth look in this image from the September issue of YRB Magazine. What do you think? I might be reaching for some black lipstick of my own. [YRB Magazine] Keep reading »
Karaoke isn’t normally a classy affair. Dive bars, sloppy slurred words, vodka shots, and embarrassing photos are more like it. Leave it to A.P.C., one of our favorite French clothing labels, to make karaoke cute. Their new DVD offers instrumental versions of the standards: “Like a Virgin,” “Billie Jean,” and other hits by the likes of The Ramones, The Spice Girls, and The Police. Except, instead of the cheesy beach scenes and ’80s montages you normally get on the screen (OK, we do kind of like those), you get nature images filmed from a boat on a polar exploration in icy Greenland. See? Classy. [$35, Apc.fr] Keep reading »
Normally, the Daytime Emmy Awards aren’t really my bag. I’m not a huge soap fan (Is she preggers with Sonny’s baby or does it belong to Jax?! OMG, is he really sleeping with Hope Brady?!) or a regular “View” watcher (except when Elisabeth goes off on one of her nutso rants), so to me, the event is sort of a non-issue. What isn’t a non-issue, though, are the red carpet goings-on at the Daytime Emmys and I’m struck by one seriously dope beauty trend: white-ish nails. They were everywhere. Not that the marshmallow-fluff-white shade is a just-this-second color—it’s been kicking around the nail salon shelves for years—but it seems like there’s a bit of a resurrection of late, which I lurve. Also, white nails look great on all skin tones and tend to make your complexion and hands look tan in comparison. So, what better way to wring out the last of your summer bronze (or if you’re like me, non-bronze)? Screw the no white after Labor Day maxim. After the jump, the best shades out there! Keep reading »
So we’ve heard of lots of celebs dropping out of projects due to “exhaustion” and “wisdom teeth operations gone wrong.” But funny lady Parker Posey is leaving the Playwrights Horizons production of “This” due to a bout of Lyme disease. Symptoms of Lyme disease include body itching, joint inflammation, stiff neck, and strange and unusual behavior. Remember Irene from “The Real World: Seattle”? Poor Parker. [New York Times]
Read on to discover some more celebrities with unusual illnesses.
We’re not going to be like those moms that leave their children to figure out love, relationships, and the opposite sex on their own. We’re going to share our experiences, knowledge, and regrets, so our children can make informed choices. We already know what we’re going to teach our sons about women, but we’ve got completely different lessons for our daughters. Check out the list after the jump, and leave your lessons in the comments. Keep reading »
Chris March is usually very jovial and humble when he’s competing on “Project Runway,” but sometimes a man has to put his foot down if he’s being disrespected. March has filed a lawsuit against fellow designer Thierry Mugler for allegedly not paying him for the work he did on Beyoncé’s “I Am” tour costumes. Now hold on a sec before you get all hot and bothered. Mugler did design the costumes, but March executed them because he’s used to designing for the stage and “wild” dancing. March says he had to figure out a way to attach a harness into one of Beyoncé’s costumes and had to mold corsets to fit her figure perfectly. Everything was going smoothly, says March, until he submitted his last payment invoice after getting the finished costumes to Edmonton, Canada by March 26, the day of Beyoncé’s first show. March says Mugler left for Paris without paying anyone. (Beyoncé had paid Mugler and he was supposed to pay his team.) March told The Cut, “There’s just been a refusal to pay with no reason.”
This seems to be an oversight. I doubt Mugler handles his own invoices. Though, it’s too bad that the seven-year work relationship between these two has to end this way. Keep reading »
Cat Man Dennis Avner is the world’s most modified man. In his quest to look more like a tiger, he’s split his upper lip, undergone surgical pointing of the ears, plumped his face full of silicone implants, filed his teeth to points, and gotten plenty of ink and piercings (he attaches whiskers to the ones around his mouth). Wonder if he’s ever met cat ladyJoceyln Wildenstein? They’d be so purr-fect together. (So sorry.) [NYC, 8/312/09] Keep reading »
Earlier this month Chris Brown taped an interview with Larry King that’s set to air this Wednesday. In an exclusive preview, Brown says he “doesn’t remember” hitting Rihanna, that’s not who “I pride myself on being,” and that he’s “in shock.” Uh-huh. Keep reading »
You’d think someone who worked as a “model” would know a thing or two about clothes. Kate Moss, with her enormously popular line for Topshop, is the perfect example of this assumption coming true. But just because you have worn clothes for your job doesn’t mean you have the skills need to design clothes professionally. Case in point: Heather Mills, the latest celebrity to launch a clothing line.
Last Thursday at the Celebrity Catwalk charity event in L.A., Heather Mills debuted her new Be@one recycled clothing line. In our opinion, it looks like she went to Goodwill, bought some old prom dresses, and wielded a pair of scissors. Heather’s website says the new brand “is about to show there is nothing trashy about recycling unwanted clothing!” We couldn’t agree more that recycled clothes can be cool — just not the ones Heather “made.” [Celebitchy]
After the jump, our favorite looks from Heather’s Be@one collection. God help us if anyone buys them. Keep reading »
