Thank The Denim Gods: Someone Invented Reversible Jeans!

This idea has been a long time coming. Designers over at LA denim studio Bleulab created totally reversible jeans. Given how little we actually like washing our jeans in the first place, the idea that when your jeans get dirty you could simply TURN THEM INSIDE OUT is actually revolutionary. The best part? The jeans aren’t some freaky deaky modified pajama jeans situation on the crotch — they actually have front pockets, zippers, and regular closures. This got us thinking about what other kinds of clothing innovations we need to see happen. Like maybe some retractable shoe laces, that trim themselves to the perfect length? Or white shirts with mega-stain guard technology? What would you innovate? [$163-207, Bleulab Reversible Denim] Keep reading »

Vogue Italia‘s latest cover? So. Gorgeous. I hate to beat a dead horse, but why the hell are these models called “plus size“? Tara Lynn, Candice Huffine and Robyn Lawley just look like voluptuous bombshells to me.

Model Sues Estee Lauder Over Bad Photoshopping

We know that virtually every image we see in print has had a little Photoshop magic worked on it, but it’s easy to forget just how much. Former Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Caroline Forsling is here to remind us. She is currently suing Estee Lauder over an ad she appeared in for Origins Plantscription, an “anti-aging serum.” The stuff is meant for mature skin—but Forsling is only 35. The ad shows Forsling’s face without makeup, one side supposedly treated with Plantscription and the other side without it. Check out the ad above on the left. On the right, the way we’re used to seeing Forsling.

She is calling foul. Keep reading »

Girl Talk: I Like My Bigger Body Better

Five years ago I had an “ideal” body.

I don’t mean to say that my body was free of imperfections, but rather that I had a body that most women are taught to believe is close to perfect: I was 5” 5’, weighed barely 115 pounds, and wore a size 2. I had a tiny waist, medium-sized breasts, a taut stomach, round bottom, and cellulite that was practically nonexistent. I was extremely slender, yet still somehow carried a feminine hourglass figure. I could never have been a contestant on “America’s Next Top Model,” but for a perfectly normal girl I had a perfectly enviable body.

Flash forward five years. Though I don’t own a scale, I’m probably 20 pounds heavier thanks to a slower metabolism, college drinking and a dire love of cheese. I now wear a size 6, my waist isn’t quite so minuscule, my stomach jiggles, I have cellulite swimming on my thighs, and I have ample junk in my apple-bottom trunk. My breasts have gotten ever-so-slightly bigger, but for every tiny bit that they’ve grown, my ass and thighs grew 10 times that … leaving me much more of a pear than an hourglass. Keep reading »

Palazzo Pants Make A Return … Let’s Rejoice?

I remember 1993 like it was yesterday. CeCe Peniston was a “few-hit wonder,” and if you weren’t into grunge fashion, then you probably decked yourself out in the glamorous ’70s look that was in vogue at the time. Spurred along by pop singers like CeCe, palazzo pants had a major moment in ’93. They were a super roomy hybrid of bell bottoms and wide leg pants … and were extremely comfy. But I never expected this trend to get a redux because, well, maxi skirts are just as roomy and don’t remind folks of culottes. Keep reading »
