She revisits a combination of trends/elements in each of her covetable designs. Since we know you too have been dying to wear her fashions, we found some items that have these trends and are available now.

I grew up in San Diego, so I’ve spent years hearing people say to me, “Oh my GOD, San Diego is the most beautiful city in the United States” and being, like, “Huh? I guess.” Growing up in a place often makes it hard to appreciate it’s natural beauty so after moving away for college and then to New York for post-University work, I’ve finally realized how good I had it with the endless 70-degree days, incredible beaches, irreplaceable Mexican good, and can’t-beat-it access to Mexico and Central America. And now that I’ve learned my lesson, my mom decided to move east, so my excuse to go to SoCal and visit have dwindled. Here are the spots I think about when I’m California dreamin’, after the jump… Keep reading »
The National Enquirer reports that Mary-Kate Olsen and Jonah Hill went on a secret double-date at Chateau Marmont last week. “Mary-Kate and Jonah sat close together and seemed totally into each other,” a source told the tabloid. “They were both wearing plaid shirts that almost matched. It was the cutest thing.” You might be thinking, Wait! Didn’t MK go to a Radiohead concert with her plaid-wearing boyfriend Nate Lowman the night before her supposed date with Jonah? Yes, yes, that is true. But the Enquirer has gotten so many things correct that it’s hard to completely ignore them. And no matter which guy she chooses, plaid wins. [AHN] Keep reading »

You know those QR codes that Ralph Lauren Rugby is using so you can use your phone to buy clothes instantly? Well, a couple designers have a new idea about how to use them. Marguerite Charmante and Wolfgeng Peter Schmiller put QR codes on a dress, and, hypothetically, a guy could see a girl waiting for a drink at the bar and scan the code on her dress using his phone. Instantly, he could be directed to her Facebook page (or blog, or whatever website she wanted), and he could assess whether or not he wanted to go after her. Just another way technology could help us become creepy stalkers! [Make] Keep reading »
Not like we haven’t already seen Lindsay Lohan’s whole kit and kaboodle thanks to the paparazzi, bottle service, her refusal to wear panties, and that little Marilyn Monroe-inspired shoot for New York. But Playboy just offered the hottest lesbian in Hollywood $700,000 to pose nude for their magazine. Surprisingly enough, Lohan said “NO!” It’s amazing how love can change a girl. I can’t tell if this decision was brilliant or a bomb, but here’s how other stars have fared after telling Hugh Hefner to bug off, plus fifteen stars who’ve said “Yes” to Hef and have seen their stars sky rocket — and tank.

Armpit hair is a part of all of our lives, however annoying it may be. Most of us choose to get rid of it by regularly shaving our underarms, but, you know, sometimes we forget. Luckily, shaving only slips our mind in the winter when we’re wearing long sleeves and it doesn’t matter as much. Celebrities who have premieres to attend in strapless dresses aren’t as fortunate — and things have gotten worse for them over the years. It used to be that the press only made a big deal about armpit hair if it was European-style long. But now, with fancy cameras and Photoshop, we can tell when someone has even a tiny bit of stubble. Are these celebs purposefully showing up hairy, or was it accidental? You decide. Keep reading »
I love the bulbous look, so this is pretty hot in my eyes. [The Women Premiere, 9/4/08] Keep reading »
One of the things I like about tennis is how quiet the arena gets when someone good is playing, so that you can hear every somewhat sexual grunt. That’s what I would be paying attention to if I was attending the U.S. Open, going on right now and through this weekend. After the jump, some of the hotties playing this year — a few of whom are already out — and their best stats for those of you who care about, you know, sporting and competition and stuff.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year for magazines! The September issues are thick with the latest in fashion. While the style pages are touting ghastly amounts of fur, pastel winter coats, and all-lace suits, perhaps the romantic advice is more palatable. What are the relationship trends for fall? Let’s take a look. Keep reading »
