Chains are clearly the “it” accoutrement for your lower appendages. We already told you about chain leggings, but these pumps, from Chain Shoes duo Tove Jansson and Per Emanuelsson, up the ante. Their design recently won the 2009 Shoemania design competition; they’re rather unwearable, but what pair of 7-inch platforms really is? After the jump,… READ MORE »

As glamorous as modeling may seem, it’s also chock-full of sexual harassment and other shady business. We open a magazine and see the picture to the left, but in order for that picture to happen some 16-year-old girl was balancing on an elevated chair and the other model was trying not to get hit in… READ MORE »

Is $24,000 too much to pay for a haircut? The obvious answer is yes! But not when you are the Sultan of Brunei. The 61-year-old, who is said to be worth an estimated $24 billion, paid exactly that to have his hairstylist Ken Modestou cut his hair. The British barber has been cutting the Sultan’s… READ MORE »

The other day, I was in a store, and there was a Halloween shirt … in August? Sigh. But I love these Richard Sorger for ASOS Silk Georgette Skeleton dresses in yellow and black. They’re spooky and sexy at the same time — although, they will set you back about $250. The chillaxin’ skeleton is… READ MORE »

Think arts and crafts projects are all about camp activities and innocent fun? French artist Marianne Batlle causes us to think again. While her handmade beaded broaches are super crafty, they also channel the world of haute couture with portraits of cute Coco Chanels with signature pearls, cartoonish Karl Lagerfelds, and a flamboyant John Galliano.

In case you couldn’t make it down to the ATL for the Bronner Bros. International Hair Show last weekend, Black Voices has an eye-popping slide show of the craziest hairdos that you have ever seen. “The more outrageous, the better,” indeed. NASCAR racetrack hair! A Michael-Jackson-shaved-into-the-back-of-the-scalp fade! And something that looks like a banana plant. READ MORE »

Only a few hours away from both New York City and Boston, there are always plenty of Americans visiting Montreal for its reputation as Canada’s Sin City, as well as for its fab European influence. With strip clubs and sex shops galore—not to mention the gay-friendly vibe, drag queens, French food, and beer with higher… READ MORE »

Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour was on “The Late Show” last night to promote “The September Issue” and she was everything I expected and more. She trotted out in her signature sunglasses, didn’t let Letterman intimidate her in the slightest, and, perhaps unexpectedly, she was funny! She poked fun at Dave’s socks and sincerely seemed… READ MORE »

Mary-Kate Olsen was spotted leaving the gym this weekend, looking not quite her normal hobo-chic self. This just goes to show that rocking the “just rolled out of bed” look can actually take some work. We’re sure Mary-Kate was just caught on an off-day, although we have to say that this unflattering get-up is particularly… READ MORE »

Jean Charles De Castlebajac (try saying that five times fast) is launching a diffusion line this fall at London Fashion Week. (Not too surprising given the habit of big designers looking to make money a little more quickly and easily.) What is surprising, however, is the fact that he’s not casting the show from the… READ MORE »

Despite rumors to the contrary, mohawks are not “soon to be everywhere.” Unattractive, perpetually over-gelled and a staple mostly reserved for those who are trying too hard, it’s simply not a hairstyle that we see gaining too much traction any time soon, New York Magazine. But while the thought of the masses cropping their locks… READ MORE »

It’s no longer enough to wear a pair of shoes, a shirt, or a skirt. No, fashion has gotten so much more complicated. Now there are articles with names like shooties (pictured) and jeggings, because combination clothes are so hot right now. What began with the skort back in the ’60s has become a full-on… READ MORE »
