What To Wear To The Five Most Random Fashion Weeks Around The World

Move over New York, Paris and Milan, you no longer have the monopoly on Fashion Week. The three fashion capitols of the world are no longer the only cities drawing the well-heeled to their runways. Name a country, chances are it has a fashion week. Of course the big question is: What does one wear to those tents of fashion glory? Well, actually, the big question might be where in the world are some of these cities, but that’s a whole other can of designer worms. While Chanel works in Paris, I was not so convinced about what to wear to Fashion Weeks in more unusual locales. After consulting the map I have come up with the five most unusual Fashion Weeks I would go to and what I would wear to each. Keep reading »

French Elle De-Glams Scarlett Johansson

French Elle has bitch slapped the fashion and beauty industries with their most recent cover. Again. For the second time this year, their cover shoot was minimally made up and, dare I say it, almost natural looking. We loved when they shot hottie model Eva Herzigova sans makeup a couple months again, putting her in a pared down white blouse and similarly laid back hair.

This time though, we weren’t so thrilled. Yes, we applaud the move away from airbrushed impossibility in the general sense, but Scarlett Johansson’s cover is a tad confusing. She’s minimally made up and there doesn’t seem to be blatant airbrushing, but the clothing is a bit trampy, the hair super boring and the expression utterly vacant. This one’s just not doing it for us. Keep reading »

Unemployed? Get Your Free Botox

Talk about lifting your spirits. A clinic in Arlington, Virginia, is offering free Botox injections to unemployed folks. Why? Many people looking for jobs are in their 40′s and 50′s, and they’re finding it hard to compete with bright-eyed bushy tailed college graduates who (a) will accept lower salaries and (b) have nary a stress line. This clinic hopes to battle age discrimination and boost confidence among the unemployed one shot at a time. Call it an image bailout.

Miss USA Carrie Prejean Loses Her Crown … Finally

Miss California, Carrie Prejean, has been dethroned for what is being vaguely termed “contract violations”, but what really sounds like a prissy attitude because Prejean refused to make certain appearances. Keith Lewis, a state pageant director said, “It has become abundantly clear that Carrie is unwilling to fulfill her obligations under our contract and work together.” The verdict isn’t a surprise, but is perhaps a bit belated considering the nude picture scandal that almost lost her the crown last month. Along with her public statements against “opposite” marriage (that’s gay marriage for those not proficient in ditz), Prejean hasn’t been America’s favorite figure. She’ll be replaced by runner-up Tami Farrell. With sex, beauty, lies, and probably a lot of tears, we think it’s only a matter of time before Hollywood adapts this story for the small screen.

Style Evolution: When Did Emma Watson Get So Hot?

We kind of knew that Emma Watson was moving away from the bushy-haired adorable dorkiness of yesteryear, but we didn’t realize that she’d gotten so gorgeous until we saw Burberry’s new campaign images. The Brit brand scooped up Watson for their fall campaign and she looks damn fine all decked out in plaid and trench coats. She’s come a long way since her first year at Hogwarts!

Nerd Girl Porn: American Male Celebs Looking Elegant In Suits

Jean Touitou, designer of French brand A.P.C., had a Q&A with Hypebeast recently. Touitou had some harsh criticisms for the American male physique. “It’s impossible to have a huge man look elegant, that’s why in Asia they’re usually more handsome because the proportions are better,” he said. Now I’m not really into beefcakes, but there are some American male celebrities who look elegant in suits. And also, Touitou shouldn’t generalize the physiques of American because not all have “big chest and broad shoulders with skinny legs.” Fourteen male celebs in suits is enough to prove him wrong and add some brightness to your day.

Letterman Jokes About Sarah Palin’s “Slutty Flight Attendant Look”

It’s one thing for a comedian like Tina Fey to make fun of how inarticulate and fame-hungry Palin is. It’s another thing to say she dresses like a slut. But that’s what David Letterman of the Late Show did last night in his Top 10 roundup of “Highlights of Sarah Palin’s Trip To New York City,” when he said Palin must have “bought makeup at Bloomingdale’s to update her slutty flight attendant look.”

The rest of the list is actually pretty hilarious, but come on, we don’t have to be respectful of women only when we like them. Clip above!

Laura Ling And Euna Lee’s Story Emerges

I can’t stop thinking about how insane it is that journalists Laura Ling and Euna Lee were sentenced to 12 years in a North Korean labor camp for committing a still undefined crime. President Obama has promised to stop at nothing to get them released, but still—if I ever took my freedom for granted, I won’t anymore. What did these women do? Did they cross the Chinese border into North Korea illegally? Were they being used as bargaining chips in a U.N. debate? All we know is that they were chasing a human rights story for Current TV. Now the details of the story they were tracking are finally starting to emerge.
