Does Tamara Mellon’s Explanation Excuse The Jimmy Choo Uggs?

Wondering how the hideous collaboration between Jimmy Choo and Ugg Australia came about? Let Tamara Mellon, Jimmy Choo founder and creative chief officer, explain:

“Uggs were my guilty pleasure until I was on a flight to London and the airline staff said, ‘We’re all so excited to see what shoes you’re wearing!’ I had Uggs on. So now we’ve done a collaboration where I took traditional Uggs and decorated them with the DNA of Jimmy Choo — animal prints and studs.”

I think we can all probably agree that Uggs were doing just fine without an injection of Jimmy Choo DNA. [The Cut] Keep reading »

Girl Talk: I’m Skipping New Year’s

Have a great time partying it up this New Year’s Eve. You won’t see me there.

Instead of getting wildly drunk and making out with a random stranger, I’m going to do what I’ve done for the last four years: I’m skipping New Year’s.

There will be no wild parties with fireworks inside (yes, something that actually happened at one of my New Year’s Eve parties several years ago, and no, it wasn’t a good idea), I’ve taken to sharing the holiday ensconced in the woods with one of my close friends. Keep reading »

Suri Cruise Clings To Her Parents For Warmth In Freezing NYC

Seriously, what do Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes’ have against covering this child’s bare limbs? It’s straight-up freezing in New York City right now and I don’t leave my apartment without a sweater, a heavy coat, a scarf, and ear muffs.

Dear Wendy: “I Got Sick And My Friends Abandoned Me”

I’m 25 and earlier this year I was diagnosed with a chronic illness that I’ve yet to really get a handle on. It’s been very emotional for me to say the least, and to top it off I feel like I’ve been somewhat abandoned by my friends. The thing is, I know they’re all lovely people — it just seems like they get uncomfortable/unsure of what to say when I talk about my illness, so they think it’s best not to mention it at all or something. I’ve expressed to a few of them that it’s helpful for me to just be able to get the feelings off my chest once in a while, yet no one really seems to be making much of an effort to hear about it. I hate to be a Negative Nancy and certainly don’t want to talk about my illness all the time … I just want to know that my friends care. Am I going about this the wrong way? Is this not the type of thing that friends talk to each other about these days? My mom and boyfriend seem to think I should stop trying to get support on this from friends, but I don’t want to lean on them alone. — Not-So-Positive Pollyanna

Looks Like Carine Roitfeld Didn’t Exactly “Resign” From French Vogue

We like to think that we are nice people. So when we heard that French Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld was leaving her job for bigger and brighter things, we didn’t second-guess her, but instead said, “Yay! Good for you! Have fun! Mazel tov!” Just because we’re nice like that and aren’t going to make any accusations. Not that we weren’t thinking them … Racked is reporting that there’s quite the rumor going around about Carine’s departure … Keep reading »
