The Latest Illegal Beauty Trend In Hollywood

The things people are willing to go through to preserve their youth. The latest fad hitting Hollywood and wealthy beauty addicts is a drug administered by injection that’s neither advocated for anti-aging, nor available legally for those who wish to use it as such. Somatropin, known by the brand name of Genotropin, is a man-made version of Human Growth Hormone, which your body produces naturally when you’re young but tapers as you age. While the prescription drug is meant for those deficient in this hormone, apparent side effects include glowing and firmer skin, decrease in body fat, and a youthful appearance, which have caused women to look at it as a beauty treatment.

Move Over Jeggings, Here Comes The Necklush

During the winter months, I’ll wear scarves non-stop: while working, out at night, in my apartment. For me, it’s more out of necessity to stay warm rather than a fashion accessory. But some scarf lovers even purchase lightweight options to wear during the summer. Stephano Diaz and Troy Mattison Hicks saw the attraction, and decided to cash in on the accessory love. The pair combined a scarf and a necklace to create yet another combination fashion item: the necklush. The designs range from $42-74 and come in a variety of different styles and colors for both men and women. Some options are more necklacy than scarfy, but each and every one could be the perfect update to any simple outfit. If you’re feeling this, that is. [Lucky] Keep reading »

Save Your Chocolate, Pass The Macarons

If we walk into a drugstore and see just one more heart-shaped box of chintzy chocolates, we’ll go on a hunger strike. A much classier V-Day prize? A gift basket from L’Age de The, which includes three specialty romantic blends of luxury tea and a selection of chocolate, strawberry and vanilla macarons baked by renowned pastry chef Damien Herrgott. Scrumptious. [$22, L'Age de The] Keep reading »

Nicholas Kirkwood Designs Shoes Fit For A Mad Hatter

We’ve written about shoe designer Nicholas Kirkwood‘s zany creations before, but this time he takes things to a whole new level. Kirkwood, along with several other designers, was asked to a concoct a pair of “Alice in Wonderland”-themed heels for display in the windows of the Printemps store in Paris. The image you see up top is the sketch Kirkwood made of the shoes, inspired by his favorite character, the white rabbit. “I think my favorite Alice character is the March Hare,” the designer explained. The bottom photo is a shot of the completed footwear, outfitted with real teacups and a pocket watch, natch. They’re perfect for the girl who isn’t afraid to wear literary allusions on her feet.

Frisky Q&A: Go Ahead, Call Gabby Applegate A Witch

If you have a soft spot for Robert Smith and necromancy tickles your fancy, Witches by Gabby Applegate is the line for you. After the collection first debuted at the Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles last year (then co-designed by her friend Lauren Alexander), the signature Romantic silhouettes, Victorian lace and an abundance of black, black (and more black, of course), have since gained some serious buzz. (Insert “cult following” joke here.) Applegate, just 19, may make you feel like a big slacker, but we adore her fun yet sophisticated vision, so we took the chance to ask her a couple q’s about her aesthetic, the design process, and what we can expect from her forthcoming fall collection.

Jimmy Choo Turns Into A Sneaker Head

Jimmy Choo has been in the news a lot recently, but not for the brand’s stunning high heels. There’s the fragrance, H&M collab, and along with the news that “ChUggs” are currently in production comes a first image of Jimmy Choo sneakers. Yes, sneakers. Everyone’s toes need a bit of a break from the sky-scraping heights of stilettos, don’t they? We say: how thoughtful of Choo. As part of the pre-fall 2010 collection, eight pairs of sneakers will be released in low and high top form. Of course, the trademark snakeskin will make an appearance, along with a suede version, meaning these are way more of a dress-up style. You weren’t expecting the tennis shoes to be gym-style, were you? [Elle UK] Keep reading »

Designer Obsession: GAR-DE

As is our way, we’ve become, ahem, a little preoccupied with yet another new designer. GAR-DE, a New York-based fashion collective, makes the coolest clothes we’ve seen in a while. From hood tops to fitted jackets with adorable striped lining and leather detailing, there’s almost no piece in the collection that we aren’t into. While the prices aren’t exactly low, the quality is good enough to make spending $550 for one of GAR-DE’s leather jackets, $350 for a non-leather one, or about $100 for a truly interesting top quite reasonable. Check out some of our favorites after the jump. Keep reading »

Style 911: How Do I Wear Denim-On-Denim Without Looking Like A Prisoner?

I’ve been noticing a lot of head-to-toe denim in magazine pages. I thought this was a no-no, but I’m a little curious about the trend. Do you have any advice on how to make this look chic? — Jennifer

Denim-on-denim used to be a cardinal sin amongst the fashionable (too bad my 12-year-old self didn’t know that), but now it’s one of the biggest trends for spring. But you must tread lightly because no one wants to look like a farmer or prisoner walking the streets. After the jump, we give you tips for wearing a denim shirt with jeans. Keep reading »

Chic On The Street: Guess The Queen

We did a serious double take when we spotted none other than fashion icon, TV star and queen of all drag queens, RuPaul stepping out on the town in a rather stylish, yet masculine suit with a lovely mint scarf for an added pop of color. And damn, those legs really do go for miles. [NYC, 1/29/09] Keep reading »
