Foreign Battered Women May Be Granted Asylum In The U.S.

Foreign victims of domestic violence may finally be able to escape their abuse; the Obama administration has instated a new policy that may grant some of these victims asylum in the United States. The policy would reverse a Bush administration stance that did not allow foreign abuse victims entry into the U.S. Keep reading »

“True Blood” And Other Shows We Can’t Believe Didn’t Get Emmy Nods

Mulling over the list of the 2009 Emmy Nominations released earlier today, I felt pretty good—Tina Fey and “30 Rock” pulled in 22 nominations, and “Mad Men” reeled in 16. “Lost,” “Flight of the Conchords,” “Weeds, “How I Met Your Mother”—they were all there. But I was flabbergasted to find that my beloved “True Blood” was nowhere to be found. I thought for sure this had to be a typo, but upon further inspection, I noticed a few other glaring omissions. After the jump, the categories we wish the Emmy folks would add so that all of our favorites walk out of the awards ceremony with a statue. Keep reading »

The Merkin Goes Couture

TV (Fall 2008) and Do Estilista (Spring 2009)

Who knew a pubic wig could be so chic? Thanks to Trend de la Creme for pointing out the merkin’s influence on high-fashion, with pubic shaped cutouts and panels showing up on designs from Kostas Murkudis and Alexandre Herchcovitch. I’ve yet to see one of these strut past me on the street, but the first lady who does, will get my award for fashion bad ass. Keep clicking to see more… [Trend de la Creme] Keep reading »

10 Reasons Why Being Brunette Is Awesome

The editors of Harper’s Bazaar had an interesting idea for their August issue—get Lauren Conrad to sport a brunette wig for 24 hours. Not sure what the point of this was exactly—did they intend it as a prank or some lame-o social experiment? In the end, the California girl totally wasn’t feeling her brown hair, even though I think it looked kind of fantastic. “Day to day, I can only do blonde. Everything else makes me look sort of plain-Jane,” she told People.

Wait, being brunette makes you a plain Jane? God, I am so over this whole blondes-have-more-fun thing. Here are ten reasons why I’m a happy card-carrying member of the brunette club… Keep reading »

Amy Winehouse Is Single And Looking Good!

Amy Winehouse isn’t looking too shabby. Could she actually be on the road to recovery? Two days ago, she finally left St. Lucia after an 8-month long vacation. When she stepped foot back in the U.K., she started crying. It’s not clear if they were tears of joy or misery, but either way, they were coming out of a much healthier looking face. Also, she’s settling her divorce with soon to be ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil! Keep reading »

Terry In Action (Figure, That Is)

Terry Richardson, the celeb fashion photographer famous for his brute sexuality (and, coincidentally, your mother’s least favorite person), will now be immortalized as an action figure. The half-foot tall vinyl doll shows Richardson doing what he does best—taking off his pants and holding a camera. You’ll probably have to comb the black market (i.e. Ebay), however, if you want one. The extremely limited collection from Uncle York includes 30 reproductions, only 15 of which will be available for purchase on August 2nd at 2 a.m. (CET). We’d like to officially lobby for a full range of fashion action figures. Why not, considering the fashionistas are inspiring comic books now? Anna Wintour and Karl Lagerfeld dolls next, please!

Celebs We Wish Rachel Zoe Will Leave Alone

No one can accuse Miss Rachel Zoe of lacking style street cred. The ultimate of the fashionista clan, Rachel is responsible for some of the best red carpet looks seen in the digital era. While all of her fabulous clients, and indeed they are all fabulous, constantly top the charts of the best dressed lists, the look is somewhat generic. All of Rachel’s girls look put together and fashion forward, but it has been a long time since I have seen anything “bananas” from her. While the usual blond wavy hair, loads of accessories and bold colored mini dress look is perfect for the fashion challenged or fashion phobic, we truly hope she leaves some celebs styles alone. We certainly hope Rachel was not meeting with Jessica Alba on business matters as I do not wish the stu Keep reading »

Gallery: Asymmetrical Gone Asinine

asym g1 jpg
Lately, the fashion industry has been on asymmetrical overload! Now, don’t get me wrong, this look can be uber-flattering and add interest to an otherwise boring dress or top (who didn’t love Kate Winslet or Frieda Pinto at the Oscars?). But, folks, there does come a time when asymmetry can go wrong. And that time is now. Check out these, well, interesting pants from French designer Eric Tibusch. Are they Pant-kinis, Trouser-tards? They sort of remind me of those half-man, half-lady circus acts—turn one way, you’re Lady Gaga, flip to the opposite side and, oh look, there’s Kate Moss in skinny jeans! (Also, this is totally unrelated, but the pointy blood-red nails? Do not screw with this woman, she will cut a bitch!) And these aren’t the only OTT-asymmetrical specimens out there, get a load of…
