In the last 12 to 24 hours or so, two celebs have appeared on separate red carpets with two very similar deep side parts, and I sort of love it—check out Milla and Sienna, above. This marks a clear shift: For, well forever it seems, every celeb rocked the middle part (think Demi Moore and Jennifer Aniston to name a few). But this new development is actually great for 80 percent of the population with hair on their heads. Side-parts are way more flattering on way more people and I for one, love the romantic feeling the look invokes. Wanna know how to get one? Read on… Keep reading »
“I was never a feminist because I was never ugly enough for that.”
— Karl Lagerfeld pretending to be Coco Chanel in Harper’s Bazaar. We wonder if he used a girly voice to answer the questions. [Also, shut up Karl! -- Editor] [Chic Report] Keep reading »
Are you a cucumber abuser? If you are, I think you know exactly what I mean by that. And it’s got to stop! The cucumbers can’t take it anymore! Created by an erotic shop called Sara’s Secret, these ads show just how traumatic life can be for poor, innocent cucumbers who find themselves in the hands of bored, sexually frustrated women. Don’t do it, girls! Go battery-powered instead. Or, there’s always the washing machine. [Agency Spy] Keep reading »
Hopefully this isn’t a reflection of the entertainment value of the movie he’s filming with co-star Jennifer Aniston (who seems to have fallen asleep herself). [Sleepy Hollow, NY, 8/7/09] Keep reading »
Camille from “NYC Prep” may not get accepted next year into her dream school, Harvard, but if she doesn’t mind donning menswear — and something tells me she probably doesn’t — she now has the chance to dress the part a little more easily. That’s because the Ivy League school has curiously launched a new men’s fashion line called Harvard Yard. Harvard and fashion? It’s not exactly the modern marriage we might expect, but nevertheless, the university has signed a ten-year licensing deal with a clothing manufacturer for a line of preppy men’s apparel. Inspired by photos of students lounging in Harvard Yard in the ’60s, the line includes “short-sleeve plaid shirts, Liberty print wovens, seersucker shorts, regimental stripes, sporty knits, patterned jackets and fancy pants — all in a contemporary, tapered fit.” Prices range from $165 for pants to $495 for sports coats.

Decisions, decisions. We love how voluptuous and sexy curls look (a la Amy Adams, here at the New York premiere of “Julie and Julia“), but we’re also suckers for slick, straight hair. For these particular events, her hair guru, Matrix celeb stylist Mark Townsend, made the style decisions above based on the clothes and um, just a “feeling.” For the NYC event, he wanted her hair to look modern and glamorous to match her ritzy Carolina Herrera gown. “I’ve been very inspired lately by hairstyles from the ’80s with lots of volume,” he said. But for the more slick look in LA, he was inspired by “beauty shots from the ’80s that I’ve collected over the years, very Carol Alt,” he says, referring to the supermodel who reigned supreme back in the day.
We’re torn. Which do you prefer?
Oh, and P.S. We just happen to have a few bottles of the Biolage Shine Endure Spritz that Mark used on Amy laying around the office. It’s good for shine, protection and both straight and curly hair. It costs about $14 in stores, but we’re willing to part with three bottles for our favorite comments regarding woman’s greatest mystery, that very serious conundrum: curly or straight? Keep reading »
It’s time to get used to pleats again because they’re everywhere now. Some may refer to pleated trousers as mom pants, but they’re much cooler than that this summer and fall. The key is to make sure they’re proportioned and fit well. You’ll look squat if you wear a cropped, wide-leg pair, but if you do go the cropped route make sure the pants also taper. Similarly, high-waisted, wide-leg trousers will take focus away from the hip area and shift it on the smallest part of your body. Also remember that super-tight and pleats don’t mix, so choose a pair that graze the body, instead of ones that hug it.
In the coming days, many people will write touching tributes about John Hughes, the director of seminal ’80s movies “The Breakfast Club,” “Sixteen Candles,” “Pretty In Pink,” and “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,” who died yesterday from a heart attack at the age of 59. But I’m sure none will be as moving as the one written by Alison Byrne Fields, his fan-turned-pen-pal. From 1985-87, Alison and Hughes wrote to each other often, her impact on him perhaps as vital as his impact on her. It’s a wonderful story that truly illuminates who Hughes was a man, as well as a director. Read it here. Keep reading »
