WWWWD Reports On The Met Ball

“Karl Lagerfeld is dead!” “Terrorists at the Met Gala!” “Kate Moss ate foie gras!”

Missed these headlines from the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala? You can find them all in the latest edition of WWWWD (not to be confused with WWD), the Onion-esque fake newsletter that pokes fun at the fashion world. In the Met Ball Special, WWWWD reports that Karl Lagerfeld was thought dead due to the death of a German farmer with the same name, and caused a stir when he showed up alive: “… Anna Wintour threw herself at his feet, crying ‘I’m sorry I never respond to your Evites!’ while kissing his shiny patent toes, Karl claimed to have been ‘a touch surprised.’” Other news includes a Tweet roundup (Mario Testino: “@gwyneth’s place. blaming my farts on apple. must quit cheese”), a report on Blake Lively’s new gender-neutral fragrance, and model Erin Wasson’s crack addict date.

What? WWWWD offended you? Jeez, why does fashion always have to be so serious? Really, what’s so important about fash — oh crap, Anna Wintour is barreling towards us with a pointy stiletto and her razor-sharp haircut. [WWWWD: Met Ball Special] Keep reading »

Kate Moss To Pen Autobiography

Kate Moss has agreed to write a “no-holds barred” autobiography, which will be published by Virgin Books. Richard Branson, who has been friends with Kate since she was 15 and owns a stake in Virgin Books, says the book will contain not only salacious details about Kate’s life, but also anecdotes about her celebrity friends. The book deal, which is valued at an estimated $1.5 million, was agreed upon way back in 2006, but publication was delayed to let Kate repair her reputation after she got busted on camera snorting cocaine.

After the jump, the questions we want Kate to answer. If they’re not addressed, we’ll expect a full refund from Barnes & Noble. Keep reading »

Beyond Blue: How To Wear Colored Jeans

Colored denim hasn’t been in style since the ’90s, so it may seem intimidating to adopt. But have no fear! All you have to do is keep the outfit simple, let the denim be the key feature, and if you add another color into the mix, make sure it’s the same hue saturation as the denim. Got it?

Thoughts From Guys On Our IM: Would You Ever Violate Her Privacy?

The other night, when I was having dinner with a guy friend who told me my engagement history might scare off some guys, we also discussed the issue of privacy in a relationship and how big of a deal it can be when that privacy is violated. He maintains that checking your partner’s email, cell phone call log, and text messages is totally wrong, whereas I think it’s wrong, but not pathological or evil. Frankly, I know many women who do the occasional cell phone check or email glance (and a few women who do oh-so-much more), but what about guys? Do they ever pilfer through their girlfriends’ inboxes and Facebook accounts? I went to four taken guys on IM to find out. Keep reading »

Crave: LCD Notecards

These days, sending a letter through the mail comes off as quaint (unless, of course, it’s a bill, in which case it’s annoying). Try these LCD notecards to make your letters feel less old fashioned. For ‘80s enthusiasts and people with bad handwriting, these multipurpose greeting cards let you send a message that’s crafty and futuristic. All you need to do is let grooves in the grid of these 2 x 8 squares guide a colored marker to make the letters. The goods are created by Yellow Owl Workshop, a San Francisco company that uses recycled paper. We like the stationery for writing thank you letters, especially for saying, “Domo arigato, Mr. Roboto.” [$5, Urban Outfitters] Keep reading »

Where Did Mother’s Day Come From?

We’ve been so busy giving you gift ideas and sharing lessons our moms taught us, we’ve forgotten the meaning of Mother’s Day.

Mother’s Day became a U.S. holiday in 1914 after Anna Jarvis spent years sending letters to public officials urging them to set aside a day to honor mothers. Her own mother died in 1905. While Jarvis was happy when the day was recognized by President Woodrow Wilson, she became embittered by what it developed into over the years. “Mother’s Day has nothing to do with candy. Candy is junk. You give your mother a box of candy and then go home and eat most of it yourself, or else you give her hard candy that breaks her teeth or dentures. … It’s really a shame to waste flowers for Mother’s Day. Florists have made millions of dollars out of my idea and they don’t deserve it.”

Instead of worrying about what to buy Mom during a last-minute shopping trip, why not spend the day with her or write a thoughtful note? But don’t use a printed greeting card. Jarvis disapproved of those, too. “A printed card means nothing except that you are too lazy to write to the woman who has done more for you than anyone in the world.” [Newswise] Keep reading »
