What Are Your Biggest Fashion Money Wasters?

I have a closet stuffed with clothes. Yet I have I-have-nothing-to-wear syndrome coupled with the sad realization that I wear only 25 percent of my wardrobe. However, that doesn’t seem to stop me from adding a half-dozen things every few months that usually end up with the other 75 percent of my collection. Apparently, I’m not the only one who wastes money on fashion! The Daily Mail reports that an astonishing 45 percent of swimwear purchased each year by U.K. women goes unworn, wasting the equivalent of about $470 million. It’s clear why swimsuits make for money wasters (stupid ladymag bikini body programs that you vowed to do, but didn’t). What else is going unused in your closet? The answers, after the jump.

Simon Cowell Gets Paid Waaaay Too Much. Is That Why Paula Left?

American Idol” judge Simon Cowell is getting a huge raise. A year ago, he made a measly $36 million per season. Now, according to People, he’ll be taking home $45 mill a year. We find this particularly interesting because, as the New York Times reported today, one of the reasons Paula Abdul left “Idol”—besides resenting the fact that the network brought on Kara DioGuardi to be a second female judge and that her co-workers didn’t stand up for her during the drug-abuse allegations—was that they wouldn’t give her a raise from $3.5 million a year to $10 million a year. While Paula looks at other options, this got us thinking: How much do our favorite female television personalities make? And how do they stack up to Sir Simon’s mega paycheck? Keep reading »

More Ram, Please: Dude Catches Computers With His Butt

Seventeen Mag Goes Retro For September Issue

Of all the high-fashion, high-concept, high-flying September magazine covers out there, this is our fave. Behold the first-ever cover of Seventeen magazine, from September 1944, which will also be the subscription cover of their upcoming September issue for 2009 in honor of their 65th anniversary. We love that the cover model hasn’t changed: a young, pretty, all-American girl. But everything else has! Notice the single cover line? The first edition keeps it simple with “Young fashions & beauty, movies & music, ideas & people,” instead of the standard shtick you see on teen fashion magazines today. (“284 ways to change your look” — anyone?) The magazine was pretty cheap too, only $0.13. Today, it’s $2.99. [Chic Report] Keep reading »

La Toya Jackson Could Join “Dancing With The Stars”

The sudden death of Michael Jackson has been the best thing to happen to his sister La Toya Jackson‘s “career,” apparently. She’s always wanted a career on par with those of Michael and Janet, but she lacks the talent. Now, La Toya could be one of the “stars” competing on the ninth installment of “Dancing with the Stars.” Reportedly, she’s been approached by the show and is in “serious talks.” At least her age-inappropriate attire will be appropriate for this venue. After the jump, our dream list of “DWTS” contestants. Keep reading »

Lady Gaga Is A Total Style Biter!

Lady Gaga, you’ve got some ‘splaining to do. Irish pop star Róisin Murphy claims:
