It goes without saying that being a model for Victoria’s Secret requires strict beauty and fitness regimens. But not even that rigorous upkeep is enough to make her runway-ready—New York magazine reports that makeup artists then need to beautify her butt. Apparently, each girl gets 20 (20!) layers of makeup on her derrière and is attended to by as many as five artists. [NY Mag]
So what exactly is butt makeup? Let’s discuss … Keep reading »

Recession? What recession? From looking at this video of the launch party for Sonia Rykiel’s H&M lingerie collection
, you’d think we’re living in an economy of decadence. Held at the Grand Palais in Paris, the event was nothing short of crazy (in a good way)—the place was decked out with twinkling lights, miniature Eiffel Towers, and balloon sculptures. The collection was presented in a parade of baton twirlers, marching geese, and floats where models were swinging from chandeliers or cycling on stationary bikes. While a bit on the kooky side, it all looked pretty fun, and très, très Parisienne. [YouTube

I. Love. These. Shoes. I’ve got a thing for sparkly red shoes — I think I watched “The Wizard of Oz” one too many times when I was a kid — and I’m still sort of obsessed with the whole heel-less shoe phenomenon, so these amazing numbers by Natacha Marro are drool-inducing. Stars who’ve worn Marro’s out-there designs include Gwen Stefani, Daphne Guinness, and Grace Jones; plus, she designed Luke Skywalker’s shoes in the latest “Star Wars” movies. These glittery “liquid red” Mary Janes are hand-made to order, and a limited edition, so only 10 pairs will ever be crafted. Also, they are around $800. So, you know, I will probably never own a pair. Sigh. [Style Bubble] Keep reading »
These days, starting a denim line seems just about as formulaic as making a Duncan Hines cake: get some organic cotton, mix in a celeb name, slap on a pricey label, and voilà! That’s not quite the case with Jacob Åström, Tor Rauden Källstigen and Jakob Ohlsson, who decided to go the hard way by starting their jeans line in the least likely of all places—North Korea. According to Fashion Week Daily, the three Swedes “stumbled upon North Korea’s new website, which called for new businesses from battleship building to potato farming.” Random! And yet completely cool that a fashion label would want to really think outside the box and draw inspiration from somewhere totally new. Here’s how they pulled it off. Keep reading »
Fashion bloggers are gaining major credibility, as Rumi Neely of Fashion Toast sat in the front row at an Emanuel Ungaro show and Jane Aldridge of Sea of Shoes was hand picked by Vogue to attend the Crillon Ball this year in Paris. Bluefly and StyleList launched a contest to find America’s Most Stylist Blogger, narrowing their choices down to eight finalists, who styled Bluefly items for the chance to win a $1,000 Bluefly shopping spree, a blogger store on Bluefly, and a weekly column on StyleList. So just who is America’s Most Stylish Blogger? Trang Huyen of the Behind the Seams in Pensacola, Fla. She tackled style challenges including plaid, Prada shoes, a boyfriend vest, mini skirt, and tie-dyed leggings to rise to the top of the rest. Does this mean she’s the new Tavi? Some more of her winning looks, after the jump! Keep reading »
Have you ever wanted a custom-made dress, one that fits you like a glove, but thought you’d never be able to afford it? Well, the fashion gods have smiled down on you. The website StyleShake allows customers to create their own designs of dresses, tops, and skirts, and ten days after the time of purchase the one-of-a-kind garments arrive. You can even create bridesmaid dresses in that same amount of time. [Which should make for some interesting innovations in that field!--Editor] If the fit isn’t right, StyleShake does free alterations. The available fabrics include silk, cotton, linen, and even eco-jersey. Those are my creations above, but I don’t have any plans to quit my day job. (I did have fun playing around with the design tools and think it’s a great way to pass the time when you’re bored.) My only issue with StyleShake is that all the sleeves, necklines, and bottoms aren’t available for every design. You can’t pick, say, a sweetheart neckline unless you pick a specific type of top in the beginning. You kind of have to play around and use some trial and error, but I guess that’s where the amusement factor comes in. The most expensive garment in my collection was the dress with the sleeves, and it only cost $114. [StyleShake] Keep reading »
File this one under “We Can’t Believe It Took Them This Long”: Besides all those expensive bedazzled bras and Heidi Klum flaunting her post-baby body, there’s one more reason to watch the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, airing on CBS tonight. Chinese model Liu Wen, 21, will be the first girl of Asian descent to float down the angels’ catwalk.
“I was surprised when my agent told me. I asked my agent if she was joking. I didn’t think an Asian girl would get this job.”
Of course, the show’s casting agents didn’t exactly pluck her from obscurity. She was a Fashion Week favorite, and even proved she had mad runway skills by walking in Alexander McQueen’s spring 2010 show, known for the insane toe-less platform shoes. So, you know, undies and wings should be a cinch. [ONTD] Keep reading »
A new study says wearing a fragrance certainly helps make you more attractive to the opposite sex, and, arguably, the most legendary perfume of all time may also be the most seductive. In fact, one in 10 women even claim they met the man of their dreams while wearing Chanel No. 5.
Wait, really? Keep reading »
