Fashion First: Wearing A Thong Bikini

Amber Rose showed off her impressive rump in a G-string bikini while vacationing with Kanye West in Miami Beach. She pretty much had a piece of orange floss up her butt, which makes me wonder what the front is like. She has quite the cajones to strut around like that, especially when Kanye is fully clothed, but she was a stripper.

Although I don’t have a stripper past, I did find it liberating to wear a thong string bikini while on vacay in the Bahamas. I’d been working at a sex store and fell in love with a white, ruffled bikini that had pink piping along the edges, but the bottom was a thong. I decided to buy it anyway. Keep reading »

Who Doesn’t Want Their Ass To Wink?

You know what the ass of your jeans is missing? Eyes. Eyes that wink. Retiree and grandfather of seven, William A. Jones, thinks so anyway. That’s why he’s invented Winkers, “the pants (or jeans) whose rear winks as the wearer walks.” Says the redonkulous press release we received today:

Mr. Jones says that the idea came to him when he admired a woman walking towards him and, as men do, checked her out as she passed him. He could have sworn that her elegantly jeans-clad behind sort of winked at him. He then thought that people-watching would be more interesting if their pants were adorned with eyes at the precise fold created by the motion of walking. Mr. Jones experimented with his daughter’s jeans and was quite pleased with the result: when he applied his technique of accurate placement, the pants
did wink!

Eureka! But that’s not all… Keep reading »

Paula Abdul Flirting With “American Idol” Again

“American Idol” and Paula Abdul are stringing us along in a wicked game of will-they-or-won’t-they, and our hearts can take it no longer. Just when we were trying to move on after the Paula-”Idol” breakup and were getting kind of excited over the fact that Posh Spice, Katy Perry, Mary J. Blige, Shania Twain, and Joe Jonas would be stepping in to guest judge the “Idol” auditions, Paula’s dropped a bomb. She and “Idol” aren’t completely finished, and she may run back to the show after all. Paula, don’t mess with our hearts like that! Keep reading »

Would You Wear Canvas Shoes To Your Wedding?

What if it was for a really good cause? Forget your dainty stilettos, satin-covered pumps or even blue suede shoes, because if TOMS founder (and super hottie) Blake Mycoskie has his way, the shoe of choice for blushing brides will be a pair of canvas slip-ons. The charitable company, which donates shoes to needy children with every purchase, is encouraging brides and grooms to outfit their entire party with their footwear, and they’re sweetening the deal by offering a group discount. Interested brides and singles alike should check out the special page they’ve created for details. Honestly, it shouldn’t even take that much convincing. Anything besides making people wear Crocs for your wedding (remember that trend?) is fine by us. Plus, think of all the good karma your marriage will reap! [Racked] Keep reading »

Nigeria Wants HIV-Positive Folks To Marry Each Other

In Nigeria, a government program is trying to stop the spread of AIDS by … encouraging HIV-positive people to marry each other. The idea is that if they’re married, they won’t be as likely to spread the disease to others. And they’re giving serious incentives for tying the knot. In exchange for an “HIV-marriage,” the agency will pay a couple’s dowry, and even provide them with counseling and employment assistance. There is no actual evidence that these marriages reduce the spread of AIDS, but some couples do note serious benefits of marrying another person with HIV. Some have said that their marriage has provided them with a support group and reduced the stigmatization associated with this disease. Keep reading »

Quote Of The Day: Katie Grand Supports Wedding Dresses That Aren’t White

“I wore an Azzedine Alaïa brown snakeskin dress, which he tortured me for about two months to get into, but at least it’s something I can wear again. I didn’t want some stupid white dress; it seems like such a waste.”

Fall Trend Alert: Socks And Pumps!

When it comes to style standards, one thing holds true: There are none. Just when you think you’ve absolutely mastered all the fashion no-nos, the industry can manage to turn around any look. One fashion faux-pas we were certain about was socks with high heels, which seems like the equivalent of guys wearing socks with Teva sandals. But lo and behold, what should we find when browsing the J. Crew new arrivals section, but a whole selection of colorful socks paired with classic pumps and mary janes. The styles come in various heights, including ankle and the more traditional knee-high lengths. Is this controversial old trend new again? The more we poked around, the more we found new sock styles that looked like they were made exactly for such a look.

What do you think? Will you don socks and heels for fall? Check out some other looks after the jump… [$9.50-$24.50, J. Crew] Keep reading »

Mariah Carey Gives The Grammys The Finger

Mariah Carey is really sick of being shafted by the Grammys — she’s been nominated 21 times, but has only won five awards. So this year, the songbird has basically told the Grammy people to kiss it where the sun don’t shine. Mariah pushed back the release of her album, Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel, to Sept. 29, one day after the Grammy cut-off date. The album’s first single, “Obsessed,” debuted on Billboard’s Hot 100 at No. 11, so don’t try to theorize that the album is garbage and Mariah’s trying to save face. She doesn’t need the Grammy accolades because her career has been successful with only five awards. Plus, she’s kind of throwing a bone to Whitney Houston, whose first album in seven years will be released Sept. 1. Who’s a diva now? [NY Daily News] Keep reading »
