Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
A little bit of distrust goes a long way. In the wake of the Sanford scandal I am trying to get a better handle of why we lie and how we can tell if someone is telling us the truth. My interest piqued during the political scandal of the Italian Prime Minister. However, it began several years ago when a male friend of mine began telling me stories about a new woman in his life.
I was a good listener until he asked the question, “So what do you think?”

Christian Audigier, purveyor of all things rhinestone-encrusted and hideously illustrated, is planning to show at Spring 2010 Fashion Week in Paris this Fall. This is the guy who designs for the likes of Ed Hardy, usually shows his creations at L.A. or Miami Swim Fashion Week, and likely clothed the greasy dudes who were grinding all up on you at the club last weekend. So while designers like Christian Lacroix struggle with bankruptcy, Christian Audigier is zeroing in on their legitimate fashion turf with his truly illegitimate “designs.” This makes us kind of sad.

Michael Jackson‘s costumes for his upcoming tour look like they would have been a veritable fashion show of MJ classics (not to rub salt in the wound, or anything). Described as an “over the top wardrobe,” costume designers Dennis Tompkins and Michael Bush worked with Jackson who wanted to take things to a new, higher level. This resulted in a collection that brought back to life Jackson’s golden days with his flashy fingerless glove, military jackets, a Billie Jean jacket adorned with over seven pounds of Swarovski crystals. The highlight of the styles, however, has to be the redesigned “Thriller” jacket outfitted with fiber-optic lights that would flash in time with the music. While the costume designers say that Michael was enthusiastic in his last days—performing routines with huge energy, and eager to get the show started—his measurements show that he was incredibly thin with a 27 3/4-inch waist. Regardless, pictures and memories like these will allow Michael’s show to go on. [People] Keep reading »
We all tell little white lies. The world would stop turning and erupt in bloodshed if we said what we really thought all the time. I have been thinking, however, that while I have to constantly change things up with women, I can keep on telling different guys the same altered-truths because their questions never change. Maybe women are more creative with our insecurities or our insecurities are more fluid and likely to change with time. Who knows why, ’tis an unsolved mystery, but until I find my channel my inner Agatha Christie, here are the top five things women tell men they don’t mind, but we really do. Keep reading »
Lebanese national Raffi Nernekian was arrested in Dubai for wearing a Marc Jacobs-designed T-shirt promoting skin cancer awareness with a nude photo of Victoria Beckham. Although all of Posh’s important lady parts were hidden by the “Protect the Skin You’re In” slogan, Nernekian reportedly got into an argument with a local over the shirt. After the argument he left to change his shirt, only to find the police waiting when he returned. He was jailed for a month for “offending public decency.” Although Dubai is a tourist destination even for folks like Paris Hilton (who has recently been searching for a new BFF there), visitors are advised to review the country’s moral and social code before partying it up — or getting dressed.

After Princess Fancypants washes her hair with white truffle oil shampoo and slathers Creme de la Mer between her toes, she sits before her vanity and pouts. Still, something is not right. Shall she polish her skin with Beluga caviar? Clean her ears with the sharpest emerald she can find? No. It is her hair. Her hair simply isn’t right.
Aha! Then she remembers. She opens a small drawer and takes out a bottle of Oribe 24K gold pomade ($49 for 1.7 oz). Its web site says it is “excellent for use on pleasure craft [or] in convertibles” and, wouldn’t you know? That’s exactly where she is headed. At last, she is ready to go.
