DIY Cool Braids

Sometimes inspiration comes when you’re not looking for it. In some of our random fashion browsing on the Internet, when we were looking for clothing-related posts, we found ourselves completely ignoring the goods on the page and were instead entranced by these models’ hairstyles. The styling on each is perhaps perfect—braids complimented by Grecian and knotted accessories. Here’s how to get these two innovative ‘dos… Keep reading »

Make Six Figures … As A Nanny

What does a French-and-German-speaking, magna-cum-laude graduate from a well-respected university do when she graduates? Well, some are becoming nannies. After 15 years of being a nanny, Autumn Backman is now raking in a six figure income. Despite the fact that the average income of a nanny is $26,000 or about minimum wage, nannies for the elite make bank and lead pampered lives. From traveling on private planes, to vacationing at exclusive resorts, to dining at five-star restaurants, and receiving free BMWs or designer goodies, nannies for the wealthy to some extent get to experience the same royal treatment as their employers. Ummm, where do I sign up? Keep reading »

Star Couplings: Eddie Cibriani’s Wife Has Left Him

  • Eddie Cibriani’s wife has left him, saying that he and LeAnn Rimes deserve each other. [Us Weekly] — So maybe those photos weren’t leaked as a publicity stunt for LeAnn and Eddie’s made-for-TV movie.
  • Sam Ronson and Lindsay Lohan are back to fighting. This time, Lindz was upset because Sam was hanging with Drea De Matteo, and as a result, Sam threw Lindsay’s stuff in the street again. [Dlisted] — All’s right with the world again.
  • Hailey Glassman says she caught feelings for Jon Gosselin, a longtime family friend, when he was nursing his broken heart at her parents’ NYC home. [People] — I’m sure the promise of 15 minutes of fame helped her feelings along.

A.P.C. Launches … Kindergarten?

We hear Jean Touitou, the designer behind cult French label A.P.C., may be taking the popular multidisciplinary approach to the fashion business, but in a completely unexpected way. A few months ago, Touitou opened a school for two- to six-year-olds in Paris called Ateliers de la Petite Enfance (or A.P.E. for short). We’re just learning about the posh, artsy academy now, so it made us wonder what would happen if other fashion designers started schools…what would they teach? Keep reading »

Will Arnett Reads From “Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret”

Will Arnett ruined Judy Blume forever on “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” the other night. The girl from Are You There, God? It’s Me, Margaret should not sound like demon at the gates of hell. Keep reading »

“NYC Prep” Recap: Lofty Aspirations — Have These Kids Never Heard Of Hubris?

This week’s installment of “NYC Prep” was the first episode where it felt like we were past the character introductions, and finally into the thick of their lives. What did we find when we got there? The clan lives to achieve higher. Kelli with her singing, Taylor with dance, PC with … well, we’re not quite sure there … maybe let’s just say “coolness,” Jessi with her “career” in fashion (WTF, Miss I Can’t Even Vote Yet?), and as always, there was Camille, ever the social-climbing slut.

The Naked Cowboy Is Running For Mayor Of New York City

Neither rain, nor snow, nor gloom of night can keep “Naked Cowboy” Robert Burck from strumming his guitar in his undies to entertain tourists in New York City. And now the Cowboy wants to show his true devotion to Manhattan—he’s running for mayor. For those of you who have not stood next to the Cowboy’s toned tush, he is a Times Square staple, clad only in tighty-whities, a cowboy hat, and boots. He plays guitar and sings while tourists snap pictures with him. He plans to officially announce his bid for mayor today, and already has plans for raising revenues and tax breaks. His campaign promise is to do “more with less” for NY residents. No problem keeping his promise either—that yummy briefs/boots uniform says it all! [Huffington Post]

Checking off “The Naked Cowboy” on a ballot may seem a bit odd, but we have yet to see what he’s got up his … hat? Hopefully, Robert will fare better than these oddball candidates who failed in their political quests. Keep reading »

French Vogue’s Fashion Primer

vogue paris primer g1 jpg
If you feel as though you need a Fashion 101 crash course, pick up the August issue of Vogue Paris along with a French dictionary. The magazine devotes 65 pages — produced with the help of two photographers, three stylists, a handful of models, and a bevy of hairstylists and makeup artists — to “ADN de la Mode” (“Fashion DNA”), an explanation of what the big-time fashion designers are known for, from Paul Smith’s British-with-a-twist style to Calvin Klein’s easy attitude.

And, not only does this story give the lay of the fashion land, but it also brings to light why Daria Werbowy is on the mag’s cover decked out in head-to-toe Burberry. The cover photo comes from the same photo shoot.

If you want to go to the head of the class (or get a front row seat at Fashion Week), might we suggest making flashcards out of these glossy pages? [via Fashion Gone Rogue]

Quote Of The Day: DListed On The Eddie Cibrian & LeAnn Rimes Affair

“If I was Brandi, I wouldn’t be blabbing to the media. Instead, I’d get in my car, go to the nearest glory hole, kick the d**k out of LeAnn’s husband’s mouth and promise him a vintage Bob Mackie Cher doll to join forces. Don’t get mad, GET THAT MONEY!”

– Michael K. on how Brandi Glanville should handle the news that her husband, Eddie Cibrian, is still fooling around with LeAnn Rimes. [DListed] — This, my friends, is why you should be reading DListed for your celeb gossip, not that other guy. Keep reading »
