Bubble Gum Shoes Are A Sticky Situation

For those of you who have stepped in gum and want to relive the experience, behold Kobi Levi’s chewing gum shoes. “The shoe is my canvas,” Levi explains, “The trigger to create a new piece comes when an idea, a concept and/or an image comes to mind.” How long before Katy Perry shows up in these?

Frisky Q&A: Clinton Kelly Of “What Not To Wear” Is Judging You

Clinton Kelly book

“What Not To Wear” is my go-to channel-surfing show — and if it’s a weekend marathon, I will binge on six straight episodes like Lady Gaga at a lobster hat sale. What’s not to like? The women (and occasionally men) nominated by their loved ones for “What Not To Wear” are all-too-relatable with their style problems: the baggy clothes, the closets filled with dresses that don’t fit anymore. And the hosts, Clinton Kelly and Stacy London, make all the funny-but-firm observations that most of us think but don’t want to say.

With hundreds of episodes filled with “fashion don’ts” under his belt, Clinton debuts a new book next week called Oh No She Didn’t! The Top 100 Style Mistakes Women Make and How to Avoid Them. But don’t expect “What Not To Wear” makeovers past to get raked over the coals. No joke, Clinton said Oh No She Didn’t was written based on what he saw tourists wearing in New York City’s Times Square!

At the end of a long day filming “What Not To Wear,” Clinton called me for a, um, colorful conversation about the new book, hairy legs and armpits, and why you should leave French manicures to the whores. Oh, and he called me a “little bitch.” Keep reading »

How Has Your Style Evolved?

Lately, I’ve been thinking about the evolution of my personal style. As a kid I was a chubby tomboy who favored dirty overalls and baggy T-shirts. In middle and high school, inspired by the indie music scene, I became a thrift shop queen (budding hipster?) with a large collection of vintage T-shirts. In college I decided I would become rural Oregon’s answer to Carrie Bradshaw and often wore tutus to my Comparative Religions class. Keep reading »

9 Stars Talk About Their Sleazy Casting Couch Experiences

As we shared with you on Friday, Gwyneth Paltrow dropped a bombshell in this month’s Elle magazine about a casting couch experience she had before she made it big. “When I was just starting out, someone suggested that we finish a meeting in the bedroom. I left. I was pretty shocked,” she said. “I could see how someone who didn’t know better might worry, ‘My career will be ruined if I don’t give this guy a blow job!’” Who knew that word was in Gwynnie’s vocabulary?

Gwyneth is far from the first actress to go on the record about being asked to sleep with a producer, director, or casting director for a role. After the jump, more actresses on the sleaziness that happens behind the scenes in Hollywood.

Istanbul Cab Drivers Are Also Belly Dancers And Stunt Men


My boyfriend and I are trying to plan a romantic getaway over Thanksgiving, so we spent our Saturday internet-researching possible destinations and hotels. Near the top of our list was Istanbul, so to get a better feeling for the city, we checked out some videos from the Lonely Planet travel guides. Here’s what we found: a crazy Istanbul cabbie who belly dances while driving (and outside your window while in traffic) and performs insane stunts. Check it out for a good Monday morning chuckle. (And for the record: we’ve whittled it down to Prague and Lisbon—the dancing cabbie had nothing to do with crossing Istanbul off the list.) [YouTube] Keep reading »

Do Not Want: Evil Genie Pants

These $88 “genie pants,” part of the Heidi Klum for New Balance collection, are giving me severe middle school flashbacks. My PE teacher wore a very similar pair of heather gray sweats every day as she forced us to do endless laps on the track and laughed as I writhed helplessly on the pull-up bar. At one point she caught wind of my underground revolution urging my classmates to “stroll the mile” rather than run, and she made me sit alone in a corner for the rest of the semester. Who knew she would one day inspire a supermodel to design a capsule collection? Keep reading »
