Madonna washes dishes in a new ad for Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2010. Wonder if they had to teach her how to do it … [Seriously, we bet she hasn't touched a dirty bowl since the early '80s. -- Editor] [Fashionologie] Keep reading »
While I always love to read the advice Wendy gives out in her “Dear Wendy” column, I was sort of surprised by the number of responses her column yesterday received. Who knew people could get so worked up over body hair? But I guess I shouldn’t be so shocked — just look at the number of hair removal products on the market. Like the Smooth Away, which I road-tested last night while watching TV. Keep reading »
No, Nicole Kidman, no! The other night, Nicole’s under-eye makeup was a bit too aggressively light in tone. I feel for her, under-eye makeup is one of the hardest things to get right—it’s either too dark, too light, too much, not enough. And seeing as though we are smack in the middle of holiday going-out (and thus holiday hangover) days and nights, I figured what better time to pass along a few nuggets of concealer wisdom?

How Julianne Moore lolling around nude sells Bulgari, I don’t know, but it is very pretty. [Fashion Copious]
Update: Apparently this isn’t from the Bulgari campaign. It’s a shot from Michael Thompson’s 2003 Vanity Fair photo shoot. Oopies! Keep reading »
We’ve talked before about reasons not to have children, so here’s another—you can just fake it! When it comes to balancing work and home life, we mainly think about the negative … but doesn’t having kids also give you a legitimate reason to do less work, too? (Real-world answer: no.)
The Kid in a Kit from Office Kit helps the childless create the illusion of being parents, thus reaping all the benefits that employees with children get, like leaving work early to “pick the tyke up from school” or having to stay home because “little Suzy is sick.” The kit comes with a picture of a kid for the desk, artwork to hang in your cubicle and a little handbook full of parental excuses.
OK, so this is a joke (we hope!). But you gotta wonder—if that’s not a picture of your baby, then whose kid is that? Shame on the parent who loaned out their child’s smile to strangers seeking an extra sick day. [InventorSpot] Keep reading »
Copyranter just uncovered what could be considered the precursor to the Snuggie/Slanket craze — a onesie with feet called “The Bundler” was THE “sleeper” gift of the holiday season in 1975. The Bundler is far more body-conscious than its modern counterparts, thanks to the fetching rope belt. Step up your game, Snuggie! [Copyranter] Keep reading »
Most people try their hardest to mask unwanted grays, preoccupying themselves with salon visits in a desperate attempt to keep their roots a secret. But fashion trendsetters like designers Giles Deacon and Gareth Pugh sent silver foxes down their runways, and models and socialites like Kristen McMenamy and Pixie Geldof have embraced the gray look for reasons ranging from punk to empowerment (see “Why I Love My Gray Hair“). Think it looks as cool as we do? After the jump we explain how to get the look. Keep reading »

Fashion designer Samantha Cole, who previously worked for Burberry, has based her latest collection of edgy and sculptural pieces on “female warriors.” For inspiration, Cole referred to Tina Turner in “Mad Max,” Kate Beckinsale in “Underworld,” and Jane Fonda in “Barbarella.” Can you see it?
We love it when there are tangible influences in fashion; we love even more that Cole took hers from the idea of badass women. Unfortunately, these avant-garde pieces aren’t quite wearable (or affordable enough) for the everyday girl. But, we’re sure Lady Gaga would be interested in seeing Ms. Cole’s wares. A few more images from the collection after the jump! [LateMag.com] Keep reading »
