A Tattooed Barbie We’d Actually Want to Hang Out With

You knew it was only a matter of time before Barbie would step into the modern era and begin exploring the world of body modification. Though she’s not exactly a traditional Mattel release, the new tatted up Tokidoki Barbie sports a chest and neck full of tiny, colorful tats, sexy leopard print leggings and pink hair. She’s also got her very own Tokidoki pet — a cactus named Bastardino — if that’s your thing. You won’t find her at the local Toys ‘R Us, but you can grab one for a cool $50 off of the Barbie Collector site starting next week. [$50, Barbie Collector]

Lady Gaga’s Tattoo Guy Rick Genest, Sans Tattoos

Remember that guy in the Lady Gaga “Born This Way ” video with the face full of tattoos? That’s Rick Genest, model and muse for Thierry Mugler designer Nicola Formichetti.

Versace For H&M: Will You Wear It?

Style 911: T-Shirts
An array of cute, affordable, and ethical Ts. Read More »

H&M designer collaborations have been hit or miss over the years. Some — like the Viktor & Rolf collab – were absolute stunners, while others we had high hopes for (Lanvin, in particular) fell terribly flat. So we’re definitely a bit apprehensive about the new Versace for H&M collection that hits stores next month. First off, Versace is a lot of look. A lot. Of. Look. High Versace Priestess Donatella Versace is herself a testament to the brand’s over-the-top loud style. But what’s helped Versace succeed is that her bold prints and overt sexiness have been tempered by high quality fabrics and textiles. So given that H&M’s line will be produced for a lower price point and with lower quality fabrications, well, this could spell trouble. What do you think? Would you wear it?

Kanye West Doesn’t Know What Women Want to Wear

The hype surrounding Kanye West’s debut women’s fashion line, DW, was on overdrive this past weekend, as the rapper-turned-designer presented his first collection during Paris Fashion Week. Of course it was a star-studded affair, and fashion heavy-hitters like Anna Wintour, Robin Givhan, and Carine Roitfeld were in attendance. Kanye consulted on the collection with other fashion insiders, including Central Saint Martins professor and British fashion guru Louise Wilson, who taught Alexander McQueen, Giles Deacon, and many other famous designers.

Although Kanye put in a lot of work and preparation on DW, it still falls flat … or should I say heavy … to me. Some fashion editors and critics were polite enough to say that he made a valiant first attempt and the line is a work in progress. But others weren’t too shy or awestruck by Mr. West as to basically call DW a knock-off. Keep reading »

Halloween Inspiration Board: Ramona Singer

How to dress like Ramona Singer for Halloween

She’s bold, she’s brash, and she doesn’t let a little thing like cultural insensitivity or completely inappropriateness get in the way of a good time. And that’s a great thing for us, because that makes her all the more entertaining. Ramona, with her crazy eyes and her constant companion, Pinot Grigio, bends for no one. And in Ramona’s world, it’s always “Turtle Time,” whatever the hell that is. Find out what elements you need for your own Ramona Singer Halloween costume, after the jump… Keep reading »
