Nikki Reed, Your Obsession With Your Fiance Is Freaking Us Out

How much does “Twilight” star Nikki Reed love her fiance, “American Idol” also-ran Paul McDonald? Enough to put his visage on her fingernails. All of them. She wore his face on her fingers to this past weekend’s Teen Choice Awards. I imagine that she meant as a sweet gesture, but somehow, it seems kind of creepy. Like, what if she picks her nose with her fiance’s face? Or unwedges her underwear from her butt with two Paul McDonald-clad fingers? Paul McDonald, did you put her up to this? Or are you two just really crazily obsessively that much in love with each other? I mean, most people just put pictures of their significant others on their phones, guys. [Celebuzz] Keep reading »

The Trend That Is Not A Trend: Sewing Clothes!

Cutting edge paper thing The New York Times has uncovered a thriving underworld in Brooklyn, full of women who have taken up needles and thread for this thing called — what is it called? — sewing? Apparently, these sewing wonders, make their own garments! At home. By hand. This is a trend, this people making their own clothes thing. Crazy, I know. The Times agrees, and found the time to profile Sarah Kate Beaumont, who sews clothes out of her Park Slope apartment. Sarah Kate, who “majored in English literature at Bryn Mawr College, where she rode a unicycle in leggings and a skirt,” sewed several items of clothing “as an experiment of self-reliance and artistic whimsy,” and now it’s “a way of life.” Some (the Times actually) might say Sarah Kate’s “whimsy” and “self-reliance” are just reflective of Brooklyn’s independent spirit, its burgeoning, itching (like an STD) desire to be seen as an separate entity from Manhattan. Yes, because Brooklynites are always living their lives as a metaphor. But others (again, The New York Times, natch) might argue that the back-to-sewing movement is simply an extension of the “back to the land” pioneer movement. We say: this is not a trend. Women be making their own clothes since the beginning of times, idiots. Next week, in part two of the Times series on The Sewing Trend, a little show called “Project Runway”!

August 8: What Are We Wearing Today?

What Are We Wearing?

Vivienne Westwood Isn’t Fond of Kate Middleton’s Style, Either

“I would have loved to have dressed Kate Middleton. But I have to wait until she kind of catches up a bit somewhere with style…I think she’s got a problem with eye make-up! The sharp line around her eyes make her look hard. Either she should be smudgy or wear none. … Let me put it this way. It seems to me, that her image is ‘ordinary woman.’ Therefore, high street shopper. And I just think she should be an extraordinary woman, wherever she gets her clothes from.”

–Punk designer Vivienne Westwood, on her disdain for Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge’s style, or lack thereof. [Telegraph] Keep reading »

An Open Letter To Justin Bieber’s Pants

Dear Justin Bieber’s Pants,

Sometimes I wonder what life must be like for you. I mean, just a few years ago you were making cameos in YouTube videos and today you’re probably the most famous pants in the world. All eyes are on you, and people are talking: “What style of pants is Justin wearing now?” “Who’s trying to get in his pants?” “Who wears the pants in his relationship?” “How does he get his pants to stay up?”

And that’s what I’d like to talk to you about: the whole “staying up” issue… Keep reading »

Amy Winehouse Lives On … Through Fred Perry

Singer Any money Winehouse would have made will go right to her newly-established foundation. “Amy’s royalties and fees from both collections will be donated to the soon-to-be-established Amy Winehouse​ Foundation. Fred Perry will also make a seasonal donation to the Foundation,” said a statement from the company. Amy’s father Mitch, who just can’t keep his face out of the public eye, also released a statement on the collection. “When Fred Perry came to us to ask what we would like to do with the new collection it was natural to continue … Amy loved working on both collections, and would want them to be made available. All the money we make and the donation that Fred Perry will give will go straight into to the Amy Winehouse Foundation, which we are setting up to help children and young people in her name.”

So, at least something good will come out of Winehouse’s work with Perry, and fans will get a couple of last opportunities to enjoy a piece of her creative output. [Huffington Post]
