Sneak Peek: ALICE By Alice Temperley Largely Adorable

Despite being big fans of British designer Alice Temperley, we rarely have the pleasure of wearing her glorious frocks because the prohibitive price tags have us running scared. That said, we’ve been more than a little excited about the release of her ALICE by Alice Temperley bridge line this coming spring. And now, finally, some preview images have come our way.

A Video Look at Sonia Rykiel’s Knitwears for H&M


If lingerie isn’t your thing, or you didn’t rush to your local H&M fast enough to nab Sonia Rykiel’s creations, here’s a second chance at designer goodies. In part two of her collaboration effort, she’s unveiling knitwear to the masses, and it’s all quite adorable (we showed you a preview here). But here’s a fair warning: If stripes aren’t your thing, this is one purchase you won’t be making. The line is heavy in pink, black, and yellow, with major inspiration from the Parisian chic movement. A.K.A. berets gone wild. “It’s exactly what I love,” said Sonia of the line. “It’s exactly my work. It’s exactly what I want to offer everyone in the world.” Dresses and skirts aren’t her only offering though — amazing bright colored bangles, shoes, and brooches will decorate the shelves — though surely not for long. The collection launches in H&M stores on Feb. 20. Keep reading »

There’s Pee In That Fake Bottle Of Chanel No. 5


If supporting child labor and drug cartels weren’t enough to dissuade you from purchasing counterfeit luxury goods, consider the nasty rash you might break out in after spraying on the mixture of urine and antifreeze that’s found in a number of black market perfumes. Just as we’re still recovering from their shocking, scatological expose on new clothing, “Good Morning America” once again takes us on a compelling journey into the disgusting underbelly of a seemingly innocuous world, this time focusing on the knockoff fragrance trade. (And for that “GMA,” we salute you). I don’t think I’ve personally ever bought a fake perfume, but I’ve certainly seen them for sale before. And I think it makes sense they use pee: You totally need it to get the color just right! [ABC News] Keep reading »

Style 911: How Do I Wear Strapless Without Looking Too Dressy?

Dear Frisky Style 911, My shoulder/neckline area is my favorite part of my body, so I really like wearing strapless things. There’s a problem though: I feel waaay over-dressed when I wear strapless clothes on a regular Saturday night out. How can I pull it off without looking like I’m going to the prom?–Lauren R.

Ahh yes, we’ve all been the girl in the too-dressy outfit trying not to look awkward in a bar at one time or another. Trite though this may sound, the first and best way not to look out of place is to appear confident. Standing around all night, shoulders sloped and constantly tugging your tube top up isn’t cute on anyone. That said, even confidence isn’t going to distract enough if you’re wearing a ballerina dress and everyone else is in blue jeans. After the jump, we’ll show you how to go strapless in a put-together, dressy way rather than an out-of-control/over-the-top way. Keep reading »

Pierre Hardy For Gap: Is The Third Time The Charm?

When the first pair of Pierre Hardy shoes for Gap launched, I rushed to the store, assuming that I’d be in love and willing to part with almost $100 for said designer shoes. But I left Gap that day sans new shoes, dejected and disappointed at the collection. Then, editors obsessed over the fur-lined boots for winter, and I got excited yet again, but just like Erin, was completely let down by their look in reality. Now the shoe master has created another collection, and with this, I’ve finally given up. Three strikes and this collaboration is out for me. For summer 2010, Pierre Hardy designed three wedge styles and one flat denim gladiator pair, and here’s a first look at three of the four. From what I can see (and I hate to say it), the leather on the first pair looks too plastic-y to be worth the money, and the second is just plain boring. If I had to choose, the third could be a good option, but again, that price tag is too hefty. Hopefully the gladiator flats will bring some favorable light to the collection. If unlike me, you’re loving these shoes, head to Gap on May 4, when they will be available for $98. [Actually, gotta say I am kinda feeling them this time! I just love a platform sandal. -- Editor] [Couture Snob] Keep reading »

The Dermaroller Is As Painful As You Assumed

This should come as no surprise, but apparently, the Dermaroller, the skin-perfecting needle-roller gizmo (Angelina Jolie is an alleged devotee), is way painful. This is according to a U.K. beauty blogger (it’s not available in the States yet) who got the behind-the-scenes info:

… the efficacy of the treatment lies not just in simply rolling needles over the face, but achieving the optimal needle penetration with pinpoint bleeding and swelling, which often requires a physician’s care … patience—as well as a high tolerance for pain—are necessary if you want to reap the benefits; three to five sessions over the course of four to five months are recommended for optimal results. And it’s not a particularly, um, pleasurable experience. Despite the fact that a topical anesthetic agent was used to freeze my face, the pain in some parts was well north of a ten. I was red and puffy for the first day, but by day two people started telling me how rested and “well” I looked. My skin tone was noticeably clearer, too, and the circles around my eyes had diminished.

Ew. This sounds so crazy — would you go there? [Beauty Counter] Keep reading »

Alexa Chung’s Escaped From The Amish!

Is it just us, or is the usually adorable Alexa Chung looking more appropriate for a day in Amish country rather than front row at the Chanel couture show? [We know, we know, they're Chanel clogs, but still ... -- Editor] [Elle UK] Keep reading »
