Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
This has definitely been a comeback year for Lil’ Kim. Her relationship with rapper Notorious B.I.G. was chronicled in the biopic “Notorious,” which was released on DVD today. And she’s a surprise fan favorite on “Dancing with the Stars.” Even though she’s a close friend to designer Marc Jacobs, most women don’t aspire to dress like Lil’ Kim. But we’re going to change that, one outfit at a time.
“Notorious,” the biopic of larger-than-life rapper Chris Wallace, a.k.a. The Notorious B.I.G., is out today. The movie chronicles Biggie’s life from his Brooklyn childhood to his death by gunfire. Even if you haven’t been touched by Biggie’s music, you’ll be moved by his rags-to-riches life story. [$24.49, Amazon] Keep reading »
Minutes ago, famed fashion photographer Steven Klein debuted a new fashion featurette online: “Clorox Blue.” (To see the movie on the Flash site, click Moving Image > Film Projects > Clorox Blue.) Staying true to Klein’s controversially creative takes as of late, it’s provocative. Starring supermodel Amber Valletta working alongside boy-toys du jour Tyson Ballou and Ryan Snyder, the film appears to be a seedy peek at scenes in the life of a bathroom hooker. The series of vignettes are tiny, disturbing, fashionable dreams in which our prostitute heroine interacts with gold-toothed pimps and rubber-clad clients. Wearing couture all the while, of course. While I can’t say I totally “get” it, I know that I like it. [Pipeline] Keep reading »
Hot off his Monte Carlo Masters win over the weekend, sexy Spanish tennis player Rafael Nadal is making us sweat just watching him at the Barcelona Open (aka the Conde de Godo 2009). He’s currently battling for his fifth title at the tourney, but we bet he’ll go all the way next year, too, and get six cups — one for every ab muscle. [Barcelona, Spain, 4/21/09] Keep reading »
Marie Claire‘s Diana Vilibert has something crazy to admit: “Give me his name and 30 minutes, and I’ll give you his life story as told through Google, from the name of his childhood pet to a comprehensive collage of ex-girlfriends. I’m all for exhaustively Googling dates and digging up what’s out there.” And she’s not alone. Nearly every one of my female friends has Googled a potential date. Some have taken it to the extreme (background info on past GF’s maybe?), while most stick to the basics. What’s his favorite music? How funny is he? Most of what we want to find out about someone can be dug up on Facebook, but for the pesky dudes who makes their profiles private, Google offers a backup plan. Of course, you may end up finding out more than you bargained for. To be honest, I worry about potential dates Googling me. What I reveal on this site alone could scare off men. But do guys Google-stalk women before dates? Find out after the jump. Keep reading »
That stabbing sensation in a woman’s toes may not always be from her do-me heels. In rarefied circles, it’s a little jab of Botox. Dr. Suzanne Levine is a New York City aesthetic podiatrist for the “Gossip Girl” set, and she perks up the wrinkly feet of ladies who lunch—so their Louboutins won’t reveal their ages.
Dr. Levine charges $500 for Pillows for Your Feet, her biannual Juvaderm and Sculptra injections. “[Some women] are so embarrassed, they go to a separate section of Bergdorf to try on shoes, and they leave their socks on during intimate moments, or even at their gynecologists office, which I just find so hilarious,” she says.”
To all you ladies out their wearing socks in the stirrups because you’re afraid your gyno is going to be appalled by your wrinkly feetyou are way obsessed, my dears. Sounds like you need some foot fetishist love. [NY Observer] Keep reading »
If you’re to believe the hype, Twitter can help you with everything from finding a job to keeping abreast of surprise sample sales. Now, Twitter can even assist you in unloading the burden of your deepest secrets. Secret Tweet, the latest “craze within a craze,” is a cyber-confessional where users can anonymously post secrets, from the hilarious and weird to the poignant and creepy. If you think this sounds exactly like PostSecret, the site that skyrocketed to Internet popularity shortly after it was launched in 2007, you’re wrong. See, PostSecret is all about the postcard, the detail of the artwork, and Secret Tweet is — well, it’s about 134 characters or less (yes, even fewer than normal tweets). Secret Tweet was started by 21-year-old graphic designer Kevin Smith as a way for him and his friends to “amuse themselves.” Eve though he doesn’t make a profit off it, he says he’ll continue the project as long as he finds “personal happiness.” After the jump, a few of the Secret Tweets that amuse Kevin and make him personally happy.

We know Kanye West carries a murse, but we expected him to have a much more fabulous man bag than this. We guess he’s banking on the Louis Vuitton logos to make him look fashionable. Also, doesn’t he know that you never wear a denim jacket with jeans? [4/20/09, JFK Airport, New York City] Keep reading »
