Would You Believe That Posh And J.Lo Wear The Same Size?

It seems kind of unlikely that celebs would engage in clothes-sharing, but if they did, we wouldn’t think to match up rail-thin Victoria Beckham and the curvy Jennifer Lopez as closet buddies. But, claims Beckham, she and J. Lo wear the same size. She discovered this while trying on a dress from her own line, which apparently was the same piece of clothing Jennifer Lopez had worn to an event earlier. Surprised? So was Victoria, who said, “Who’d have thought I’d be the same size as Jennifer Lopez!”

Do you believe this, and find that a woman’s proportions can often be deceiving in determining her size? Or is this a not-so-subtle attempt on Posh’s part to dispel any eating disorder rumors? [New York Daily News]

Fashion And Beauty Products That Could Kill You!

Last time you painted your bedroom, it probably wasn’t with lead paint. That crap causes nervous system damage, slow development in kids and stunted growth. So yeah, nasty stuff. But while U.S. laws have kept lead out of houses for years, it hasn’t kept it out of H&M handbags lately. Last week, the mega retailer settled a lawsuit brought down by a consumer watchdog group over the lead content of some of their bags, wallets and other accessories. When we read that some of the items contained as much as 115 times the legal limit of lead, we did two things: 1) freaked out and took mental inventory of any and all H&M accessories we own, making note to burn them later and 2) started thinking about other recent fashion and beauty products that have had creepy and unexpected downsides. (OK, maybe they won’t kill you per se, but they’re dangerous!) Take a trip through the world of three totally-not-worth-it beautifiers after the jump. Keep reading »

Urban Outfitters Describes Color Of T-Shirt As “Obama/Black”!

Yes, really. Urban Outfitters is currently selling a Henley T-shirt in two colors: White/Charcoal and Obama/Black. The thing is, not to nitpick the ridiculousness of this, but “Obama/Black” looks more like Charcoal to me. Also, WTF?! [Urban Outfitters via Jezebel] Keep reading »

Quotable: Kanye West Addresses Fur Haters, Sort Of

“I’m briefly saddened by the negative comments, but I have to remember those people are scares, incapable or just plain idiots. We are the f**king rock stars baby. No cocaine, just life my n**gas!! No cocaine, just life!”

Axe Body Spray’s Biggest Customers Are Tweenage Boys?

The typical Axe Body Spray man isn’t a man at all, apparently. The New York Times reports that more and more, it’s tweenagers and teens—boys who might not even have any underarm hair—who are buying the super manly fragrance products. Says one mother, whose children stock their bathroom with exfoliators, shaving creams, and body washes: “Every day they walk out the door in a cloud of spray-on macho.”

You might think to first blame a guy movement that’s increasingly accepting of metrosexual tendencies, but the teen obsession with brands like Axe isn’t so much about grooming and beauty as it is about finding tools to promote confidence. Much like teen girls might turn to push-up bras or sexier clothes to attract attention and mask insecurities, their male counterparts are finding the same in a spray can … Keep reading »

The XXXXXXL Tote Bag

OAK has a new tote out that’s ginormous—a ridiculous 27″ by 32″ to be exact. Who needs a bag that big? I always say, the bigger the bag, the more junk/unnecessary stuff I carry around with me. Is it just me, or do bags just keep getting larger and larger? Where’s the ceiling on this trend? Forget about the two extra tubes of lip gloss and handful of old, crumpled-up receipts you can carry around, an entire 5′ 2″ person fits into this bag! (I’m thinking this is a fast and furious way to back and shoulder pain—yeah, no problem, I’ve got that bowling ball right here in my bag.) Can you imagine anyone Olsen-sized toting this thing around? With this tote, I don’t think that old maxim of a bigger-bag-makes-you-look-smaller-and-slimmer works. [OAK via Trend Hunter] Keep reading »

Guys At The Grammys Teach Dudes How Not To Dress Up

At the Grammys last night, most of the ladies in attendance kept it real. Rihanna looked like a gorgeous, badass swan; Beyonce had all sorts of elegant booty all over the place; hell, even Pink turned up looking like a classy broad, ballgown and all. We wish we could say that the men in attendance were similarly impressive in the sartorial sense. Keep reading »
