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!”

Kanye West‘s (rather nonsensical) response to animal-rights activists and critics who denounced his decision to parade all over couture fashion week draped in floor-length furs [This Dish Is Vegetarian] Keep reading »

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 »

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 »
