J.Crew Introduces “Jack” Style Consultant For Guys

When it comes to objective advice, sometimes friends can’t be trusted. This is especially true when the pals are dudes, and the topic is fashion. Now, style-challenged men can find direction with “Jack Knows Best,” J. Crew‘s new style consulting service. Guys can now ask Jack — a trusty wingman type — shopping questions such as “Where can I wear a linen suit?” (A: Anywhere warm, but don’t iron it.) or “What should I wear to a wedding?” (A: Follow the groom’s lead.)

The list of questions is quite informative, and admittedly, we didn’t know the answers to many of them. Not that we don’t know jack about men’s fashion, but when it comes to tuxes and ties, we ladies could stand to learn a thing or two as well. [J. Crew] Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: Magician David Copperfield Accused Of Rape

  • A 22-year-old woman claims that magician David Copperfield raped her, sexually assaulted her repeatedly, and threatened her on his private island in Musha Cay, Bahamas in 2007. The alleged victim said one of his assistants brought her backstage at a magic show and she was then invited to Copperfield’s private island for work that might lead to “modeling opportunities.” She allegedly was then trapped in Musha Cay for two days with Copperfield while she was sexually assaulted and threatened with death unless she kept quiet. Copperfield’s lawyers say he is innocent and called the lawsuit extortion. [NY Post] — How long before a tabloid newspaper makes the obvious, “Can David Copperfield Make Those Rape Accusations Disappear?” joke?

    Halle Berry‘s a big fan of the WNBA’s Sparks. The actress/good luck charm went to see her team score a victory last night.

    L.L. Bean’s Getting A New Look, But Some Of The Old Stuff Is OK

    llbean g11 jpg
    L.L. Bean is best known for outfitting New Englanders who enjoy outdoor activities like camping and who appreciate a simple “gets-the-job-done” look. In March, however, the Maine-based company will get a bit of a makeover: L.L. Bean has hired Alex Carleton, who founded Rogues Gallery and has previously designed for Ralph Lauren and Abercrombie & Fitch, as creative director. Carleton’s first order of business is L.L. Bean Signature, a collection of updated and more chic outdoorsy clothing. [NY Times]

    I’ve never been L.L. Bean’s target customer. I don’t like bugs, and my idea of roughing it is applying my makeup using a compact mirror instead of a full-length one. But I decided to take a look at their clothing pre-makeover, and I actually found some items I’d totally wear. Here’s the best of what L.L. Bean has to offer if you’re looking for style above function. (Warning! Avoid the bottoms i.e. pants, skirts, skorts, etc.)

Celine’s doctor confirmed her pregnancy after the in-vitro fertilization, and said that when he told her, “I could hear her chuckling.” [PopEater] — Chuckling! How creepy is that? Keep reading »

    The Worst Of “OctoMom: The Incredible Unseen Footage”


    FOX’s two-hour-OctoMom documentary aired last night. My first instinct was to hide under the covers, shaking uncontrollably, and wait for it to be over, but I knew I had to watch for your sake. So I took out my earplugs, stripped off the sheets, and ventured out in front of my TV again. Of course it was as bad, maybe worse, than I thought. After the jump, the choicest moments from the two-hour crapfest “OctoMom: The Incredible Unseen Footage.” Keep reading »
