(Another) Quote Of The Day: Fashion Designer Roberto Cavalli Says He’s Bigger Than A Rock Star

“I can’t walk down 5th Avenue without being treated like a rock star. In fact maybe it’s more than a rock — many times I’ve walked down 5th Avenue with rock stars and nobody pays attention to them. It’s very strange.”

Dracula Therapy Is The Scariest Anti-Aging Treatment We’ve Ever Heard Of

Warning: for those who are squeamish about needles, blood, or both, this beauty treatment is definitely not for you. So please, carry on, and we’ll catch you later. For the “True Blood” lovers or facial-happy folks, prepared to be intrigued. The latest in anti-aging treatments, according to the Daily Mail, is what’s referred to as “Dracula Therapy,” where a doctor draws your blood, extracts minerals from it, and injects it back into the skin on your face with dozens of pricks. The supposed result? Disappearance of fine lines, improvement of skin tone, and rejuvenated skin. Sounds like something straight out of a horror movie, right? Keep reading »

Step Away From The Farm!

My Facebook page has been taken over by FarmVille updates. So-and-so just harvested their stock! Your friend just sold his wares! Help your neighbor scare off crows! And on, and on, and on. The game is sweeping the social networking world and, apparently, running people’s lives. One man gets up in the middle of the night in order to harvest his crops. A husband made his hungry, pregnant wife wait while he tended to his raspberries. Conversations revolve around FarmVille coins and experience rankings. Really?!! Keep reading »

Scientists’ Study Of Twins Confirms What We Already Knew About Looking Younger Longer

Science reveals common sense to be fact! A study conducted by Dr. Bahman Guyuron and published in The Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Journal researched the appearance of aging twins to determine why one half of the pair would be protected by time while the other would become wrinkled. While the side-by-side slide shows can be shocking, the reasons behind the wrinkles are exactly what your mama warned you about.

How To Make Inexpensive Clothes Look Classier

Sometimes it’s hard to understand why designer clothes cost as much as they do. Admittedly, a decent chunk of the price discrepancy between non-designer and designer items has everything to do with the fancy labels. But another part of that astronomical price tag is legitimately deserved. Designer clothes, after all, are simply made well. The finishes are superior, the fabric more expensive and the general quality far and away beyond the average wear-it-once frocks you find at stores like Forever21. That said, four digits for a cocktail dress is still quite a lot to wrap one’s head around. So here’s one for all the ladies (and gentlemen) who are appalled at the idea of spending much on clothes but still want to look classy. Take the jump and you’ll find five really easy tips for making cheapie items look far more expensive than they are. Keep reading »

Glamourpuss: Why Socialites Shouldn’t Be Allowed Near Sewing Machines

Can socialites please stop designing horrible clothing? Who is even letting these women get near sewing machines? Gigi Mortimer and Courtney Moss are two socialite moms. Not just any moms, though. They’re also hockey moms, and it was at a hockey game that the two came up with the idea for an accessories range: “[They] were lamenting the fact that it’s all too easy to opt for jeans and jackets. Even hockey games merit a bit of chic, n’est pas?” Try n’est-no. What resulted is a collection called Glamourpuss, which includes neckwarmers in a variety of jelly bean colors called “fur funnels” made of rabbit fur and leather. What’s the “foxy mitten” made out of? We think you can guess.

Next up for the Glamourpuss team—a range of swimsuits. Courtney Moss explains, “…There’s something about fur and swimsuits together that just works, right?” Huh. That’s a new one for us. [FashionWeekDaily.com] Keep reading »

Are You Into The Uplighting Haircolor Trend?

So, what are your feelings on Alexa Chung and Cameron Diaz‘s two-toned hair in these photos? Personally, I’m digging it—I love that Cam rocked the bubble-gum pink Chanel with the un-did hair. She’s not taking her look too seriously, which I love. And, well, Alexa can rock most any look and still come off as seriously cool. Apparently, they didn’t just grow out their blond highlights to achieve the look; they paid money for it—it’s called uplighting. A stylist only places highlights on the bottom bits of your hair. Actually, according to the Daily Mail, sections of hair are backcombed and then bleached at the end. The roots are left dark and the ends are lightened. But, got to say, it’s one thing to like a look on a celeb and quite another to attempt it on yourself. What are we feeling? Yay or nay to uplighting? [Daily Mail] Keep reading »

Quote Of The Day: Textiles Don’t Have Genitalia

“You know, there is no penis or vagina in a fabric. Like, why is chiffon women’s and why is it not men’s? I don’t know.”

– Duckie Brown menswear designer Steven Cox on his confusion over people assigning genders to fabric types. Why can’t men wear tulle anyway?! [The Cut] Keep reading »
