When off duty, models usually still display a great sense of style (it is kind of part of their job description, after all), but Sean Lennon‘s gf, Kemp, looks like she might be taking the bondage trend a wee bit too literally, no? Either that or Sean dressed her for this Fendi party. He does look like he’s just been caught doing something bad. [Paris, 10/7/09] Keep reading »
Gap Body’s new T-shirts are probably the best I’ve ever encountered in my life. I’ve gone fancy, forking over as much as $110 for a simple tee in the hopes that it would hug my body and make me feel complete. Things always went well at first, with the v-neck laying just so. Then everything began to degenerate. Watching so many seemingly solid relationships fall apart was upsetting. So when I bought two Gap Body T-shirts for $12.50 each, I thought of it as a band-aid maneuver: cover the problem with cheap fixes until The Real Thing comes along. Much to my surprise, I fell in love with my rebound T.
With us, there are no games. It doesn’t fit perfectly in the morning and stretch obnoxiously during the day. It doesn’t fray at the seams when I’m just trying to look good. We’re happy together and we wish you the same joy. Keep reading »
Aw geez … remember the days of drawing silly mustaches on your fingers and holding them up to your face? Let’s be classy and snag one of these mustache rings, so we can play in style. Although a tad bit pricey for costume jewelry, the Moustache Ring makes up for its price with the fact that it’s handmade, which means you can get it in your exact ring size.

I may have missed the Elvis craze, but ever since I was treated to a private tour of Graceland, I’ve been intrigued by the King. Obviously, intrigued is a far cry from obsessed, and you’d have to be to purchase this “large quantity of hair” for sale by Leslie Hindman Auctioneers of Chicago later this month. Apparently, this model citizen was shaved off his highness’s head when he was drafted into the U.S. Army and shed his famous locks for a military issue crew cut. This pile of seemingly innocuous hair is estimated to be worth somewhere between $8,000 and $12,000. For serious. To get the look, firmly press electric shaver to head and keep a broom close by.

If I were in the business of selling pillows that mold, adjust, and even “breathe” in tune with the person cuddling them, I think I would go for an upbeat message. “Having a pillow that is practically lifelike in its response is awesome and neato! Go out and get one and your life will instantly ROCK!” I would do this because it’s likely that anyone who would buy a pillow that has real doll-like robotic characteristics is probably a sad and lonely human being, and I would want them to feel good about their purchase. (Keep in mind, I am writing this from the perspective of an evil business person, not a compassionate human being.) However, the designer behind the Funktiontide pillow clearly feels the opposite.

First they take our children, and now they are after our pets. The SEX EVERYTHING UP industry has struck again, and this time they’re marketing lingerie for dogs. Metro Paws sells what they call “Negligee T-Shirts,” which are “made from fine lingerie lace and the same stretchy nylons used in fine undergarments.” OK, true story time. Yesterday I had to take my dog Lucca to the vet because she has abscessed anal glands and they needed to be “expressed.” Anything that needs its ass drained should not be wearing “fine lingerie lace.” Ugh. (For the record, she is fine now.) [Urlesque] Keep reading »
Venice is 99 percent filled with tourists wearing t-shirts, sneakers, and fanny packs. In the land of over 400 walking bridges and stone alleys, making a wardrobe effort does not go unnoticed. Natalie, studying art history abroad, wears a custom-made tweed topper from her native Republic of Maldova. She picks out the fabric and buttons, and her tailor measures and sews. This is the original design collaboration, before the H&Ms and Topshops of the world! Keep reading »
Chanel’s Jade nail polish is already so over. Sure, the color is finally hitting beauty counters now that it’s Fall, and nails are getting their first taste of the perfect green hue. But after the Spring 2010 show, gray is the new jade.
On the runway, Karl Lagerfeld not only brought the barn indoors and made farming look chic, but Chanel Beauty Creative Director Peter Philips invited the fashion and beauty obsessed to find their newest nail adoration.
And here’s a hint: If you can’t afford the Chanel polish, Essie’s new fall shade, Chinchilly, definitely has a perfect gray look to it, and it’s more affordable! Keep reading »
Alexander McQueen was all set to revolutionize insider-y Fashion Week by broadcasting his spring/summer 2010 runway show live on the web. The fashion blogs were psyched, and so were we. Unfortunately, fashion history was not made, and who should be at fault but Lady Gaga. When the pop star posted to Twitter that her new single, “Bad Romance,” would be debuting at the McQueen show, the streaming website was inundated by thousands of visitors, causing it to crash.
No fashion for the masses this time, kiddies. Maybe next season designers who want to stream their shows live will think about increasing their bandwidth (and no, that doesn’t refer to dress size). [Elle UK] Keep reading »
Apparently, “Miss Sexy” pants are a little too, well, sexy for English school masters to stomach. The Nailsea School near Bristol, England has officially banned the $18, super-tight black trousers, deeming the VPLs (visible panty lines) and “Miss Sexy” label inappropriate for the young ladies who are so fond of them. As the “Miss Sexy”-wearing girl at left is suggesting with her pout, this decision is unlikely to be greeted with much enthusiasm by the skin-tight-pants-wearing student body at Nailsea. She looks about as pissed as “Gossip Girl” Jenny Humphrey might if her school told her she had to stop wearing shirts as dresses and actually vaguely conform to their uniform. Yikes.
