Emergency: redheads on are on brink of extinction! Gingers are already genetically rare and now nature, that cruel mistress, has conspired to snuff out the red ones entirely. Everyone and anyone who was teased by being called “carrot top” in elementary school needs to band together for the propagation of the redheaded race. And that means you, too, gay redheads. Now is not the time for this homosexual stuff. [YouTube via Queerty] Keep reading »
Chances are, if you’re the kind of woman who kept every issue of Domino magazine, set Design*Sponge as her homepage, and has more than four pillows on her bed, you’ve lusted for a Philippe Stark Ghost chair. Crafted out of modern polycarbonate, the Louis XV Ghost chair was modeled after a baroque design — and costs upwards of $400 … womp womp. Luckily, the design has been knocked off so that common gals like ourselves can get the look at a more reasonable price. There are a number of options available on Amazon, but we’re partial to the Dymas style; its stately arms allow us to sit like queens.
Queen Latifah has possessed a powerful image since the 1980s. Who can forget the impact of a female MC donning queen-like garb — leather Africa medallions, Nefertiti-esque hats, and other Afro-centric attire? But, still, we would never argue that she’s a fashion icon. So we’re kind of surprised she, too, has a lifestyle brand with HSN. Literally every celebrity has a fashion or lifestyle collection, causing our heads to spin around and question what it means to be an actual fashion designer. Keep reading »
Speaking of “The Muppets,” Kermit the Frog and Fozzie the Bear don’t necessary conjure thoughts of slick manicures and pedicures, but don’t tell OPI that. They’ve launched a collection of 12 new colors in conjunction with the upcoming “Muppets” movie, several of which feature over-the-top sparkles and all of which include radical Muppet-y names. Want one of the more subdued shades? Try Animal-istic, Meep Meep Meep, Wocka Wocka, Pepes Purple Passion, Designers De Better or Warm and Fozzie. For more outrageous, sparkly shades, go for Rainbow Connection, Excuse Moi, Gone Gonzo, Fresh Frog of Bel Air, Divine Swine, or Gettin Miss Piggy With It. But patience, Kermie! You won’t be able to get your paws — or hooves — on these shades until November. For now, you’ll simply have to approximate Miss Piggy Pink yourself. [OPI] Keep reading »
You knew it was going to happen. After months of hinting around at major dye jobs, a la Lauren Conrad’s dip-dyed blue locks and Katy Perry’s multi-hued transformations, the big new hair trend is all over crazy color. Not punk rock Manic Panic style, but jewel-toned rock star locks. To really get it right, you’ll need to have light hair already, or want to do an all-over bleach job so your hair can grab as much of the high-intensity color as possible. And because of that, we recommend that you don’t try this at home. Instead, save your hair, and save up your cash — this look is going to be time, money and follicle-intensive. But we think well worth it. [Fashion Indie] Keep reading »
Neils Peeraer is a student at the Antwerp Royal Academy of Fine Art — one of the most prestigious fashion schools in the world (and the alma mater of Martin Margiela!). It’s also where the Antwerp Six — designers Walter Van Beirendonck, Ann Demeulemeester, Dries van Noten, Dirk Van Saene, Dirk Bikkembergs and Marina Yee — attended school, and it’s generally considered an incubator for cutting edge fashion. And yet! Cutting edge fashion does not often translate to wearable design, as in these Japanese sandals-cum-gladiator-boots by Peeraer. We’re not sure if we should be serving tea in them, or fighting evil forces. Somehow both seem like a possibility. [Antwerp Fashion] Keep reading »
