One thing’s for sure, that Frappaccino or whatever the hell it is means Paris Hilton certainly isn’t on a diet. Sure is a fancy top for a Coffee Bean run though. Wonder if the extra drink is for one of the paparazzi she speed dialed? [Los Angeles, 9/29/09] Keep reading »
Kelly Osbourne has a bone to pick with some ladies’ style. The “Dancing With The Stars” contestant was reportedly overheard saying at Teen Vogue‘s Young Hollywood party, “that she was ‘shocked’ at how short the skirts of female partygoers were since they were all so young.” We’re not sure when Miss Osbourne became such a prude, but obviously short skirts make her peeved.

Jealousy? Perhaps. But maybe just a natural reaction. How many times do you walk down the street, check out another woman’s outfit and think, Why? Whyyyy? Why, oh lord in heaven, would you ever wear that? What fashion choices piss you off? A few from us, after the jump. Keep reading »
American Apparel: the store people either love to hate or hate to love. As for us, we go back and forth, at times comically appalled by its hijinks and shenanigans, other times in love with its new fashions. Shopping at American Apparel can feel like a guilty pleasure—you know you’re buying into hipster culture, yet you’re going to be just as happy to purchase the same zip-up hoodie that everyone else has.
Then there’s this, which does make us question the company’s true moral barometer. (Even though the latest scandal involved an ad which looked like teenage porn, the model was 23 — so, there’s no real legal encroachment there.) While the kids line is nothing new, these leg warmer items and the little one wearing them are. Seriously? That girl is practically a toddler and already practicing her Playboy poses.

Forgetful Franny? Here’s one way to never lose a shopping list or draw a blank again: To-Do Tattoos, temporaries that stick a lined form on your hand so you can fill in details and take them with you. Or, at least, if you’re the type to write crap on your hands anyhow, now you can be more organized about it. The pack of 12 tattoos also comes with a skin-safe, washable pen for you to write your notes with whether it’s groceries, stuff to do at work, or your five-year plan.
One of my new year’s resolutions for 2009 was to cook at least two new recipes each month, and now that we’re heading into October, I have, oh, about 15 recipes I need to quickly make up for. No problem — with this specialty trio pan I can cook three dishes at once, so if I figure I can use it once or twice a week and be back on track by November. Or … I can save it for the last two weeks of December and cram in 20 new dishes, which is probably what I’m going to do! Anyone have a good recipe (or 8) for lasagna? [$29.99, Amazon] Keep reading »
Clearly a fan of the odd collaborations of late, Comme des Garconnes is now teaming up with Apple Corps Ltd. (the dudes who manage The Beatles’ legacy) to put out a line of Beatles-inspired Comme des Garconnes bags. No images are out yet, but the collection debuts in London in November, then in Tokyo before distribution opens up. We’re hoping and assuming the sure-to-be-interesting bags will make their way overseas and into our closets. These have serious collector’s item written all over them. But not literally, we hope.

For the Red Cross’s 150th Anniversary, Louis Vuitton and friends are joining forces to really celebrate in style. Photog Annie Liebovitz and artist Damien Hirst have each designed Louis Vuitton pieces for the collection to be auctioned off at Sotheby’s on November 17. Even Marc Jacobs got in on the action with a travel trunk for his dogs. Not only should this make you want to fly around the world, but it makes everyone else want to see you doing it. (Hey, a girl can dream, right?) After the jump, check out these soon-to-be auctioned items. Keep reading »
Just kidding. We wouldn’t wear this for such an occasion. It’s more like a at-a-birthday-party-for-your-grandma kind of outfit. So appropriate! [Milan, 9/28/09] Keep reading »
Thank you H&M for consistently making designer creations available to the masses. Continuing on their collaboration takeover, the brand brought on cult favorite Sonia Rykiel to create two, yes two, collections, just in time for the holidays. The French designer will launch not only knitwear and accessories, but she’ll be the very first to bring designer lingerie to H&M.
The first iteration of her designs–the sexy underpinnings–will be available on December 5th in 1500 stores, as well as her own. Sadly, her knitwear line will be sold in only 250 stores on February 20th; thus, the line in major cities is sure to be astronomical. At least those in the U.K. fare a better chance at scooping up some Rykiel pieces, as H&M’s finally planning on starting online shopping this fall. When can we shop online H&M? Guess we’ll have to stick with eBay. [WWD]
