OK, I didn’t get a vagina facial — or “vagacial” — or “Peach Smoothie,” as it’s called — but Alex Kuczynski’s personal story for Harper’s Bazaar of getting one was so freakin’ intimate that I feel like I got one by proxy. What the hell is a vagacial, you ask? It’s a facial. Except it’s on your vagina. Like, if someone was going to see your vagina, and you wanted it to look fresh and new, you could get a Peach Smoothie.

Whispers are furiously circulating that Google will be launching an e-commerce entity which will become fashion’s next big thing. The speculation is based on a few leading hints. One, a Tweet picked up by WWD: “Breaking news: Google is launching an e-commerce site with shop in shops by major designers #google #theyrgonnabepissed #geturshopon,” which, uh, is pretty straightforward.

At long last, we get to see designer Tom Ford‘s much discussed and totally secreted away collection for spring 2011. Six years ago, Ford resigned from his dual post as creative director of Gucci and YSL, leaving ’70s-loving ladies filled with sadness. In the interim, Ford created his own brand, hawking fragrances and eye wear, opened a series of menswear retail stores, and made the critically acclaimed “A Single Man,” for which leading man Colin Firth was nominated for an Academy Award. But it wasn’t until this September that Ford returned to women’s wear with a fashion show that only a select few were allowed to see, which featured models like Beyonce and Julianne Moore, and from which photographers were barred, save one. Now, Vogue has the first images of the collection and a profile of the designer, who’s committed to helming his brand his way. [Vogue] Keep reading »
“I think it’s weird. It’s not a romantic thing. It’s an art form and in dancing it doesn’t matter. We are just so used to seeing a man and woman dancing together.”
