Quick Pic: Kate Moss Forgot To Wear Her Nippies

Kate Moss clearly missed the memo regarding pasties and Nippies being so hot right now. Always the trendsetter, she opted for a more “natural” look for her front row appearance at Yves Saint Laurent’s Spring 2010 show. And it looks like it was cold in there, too. [Paris, 10/6/09] Keep reading »

Struggling Glossy Mags Look To Hulu For Salvation

With the shocking and depressing news that Conde Nast shuttered not one, but four magazines yesterday — Gourmet and Cookie, plus two bridal magazines — comes the harsh realization that glossies are not what they used to be. If a powerhouse like Conde is suffering, well, you know it’s bad.

But certainly this can’t mean the end of magazines everywhere? Enter the online salvation. Domino recently (sort of) revived itself, in the form of an online rag called Lonny, and now it seems publishing giant Time Inc. is sniffing around the Hulu format. Wait, huh? Keep reading »

Can Temporary Tattoos Be Elegant?

In fashion, it’s all about the details — from the choice of buttons to the hemline — and designer Karl Lagerfeld is a master of the little things. While much of the talk about the Chanel spring 2010 show has been about the barnyard setting and Lily Allen‘s live performance, we noticed an interesting-yet-subtle element: Some of the models sported Chanel bracelet and garter temporary tattoos. Layered on their wrists and upper thighs, the fake tattoos resembled chic chains, rather than tacky tribal bands. Wanna try out a similar look for a few bucks? Pick up a few temporary inks from a 25-cent vending machine at the grocery store. Keep reading for closeups and online purveyors that sell similar faux ink. Keep reading »

A Wine That’ll Make You Want To Take Off Her Clothes (And Then Redress Her In A Cute Outfit)

When I’m buying a bottle of wine, I hate to say it, but I’m a sucker for cute packaging. Red Bicyclette anyone? However, that winemaker has a worthy adversary in Some Young PunksDrink ‘n’ Stick, because its label isn’t just cute, it’s interactive. A bottle of Drink ‘n’ Stick (which has gotten good reviews for a couple different vintages) features a pin-up girl in lingerie, but she comes with a sheet of paper doll-style clothes so drinkers can dress, undress, and redress her. There are even accessories like scarves and bows! Now you know how we’ll be spending our Friday night. [NOTCOT.org] Keep reading »

Style 911: What Shoes To Wear With Boyfriend Jeans?

“I recently bought a pair of boyfriend jeans that I love, but I have no idea what shoes to wear with them. Booties? Stilettos? Keep in mind that I live in Wisconsin, so flip flops, sandals or anything similar will not be a possibility in the freezing winter months!” – Meghan

Hey Meghan, boyfriend jeans are super cute but you definitely don’t wanna go and ruin a good thing with a pair of Uggs, ya know? (No offense to them — we wear Uggs all the time. In our house.) A couple ideas for you, after the jump! Keep reading »

Beauty Test Drive: Origins GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream

We feel sad, hurt, angry and confused when the insult to the injury of a poor night’s sleep includes dark circles and puffy eyes. Is there no justice in this world? Luckily, Origins feels our pain, and with faking a well-rested look in mind, they created a brand-new eye cream designed to lend you the illusion of a person who got eight hours of sleep. I’ve been trying this product since the beginning of Fashion Week, which requires lots of running around on little zzz’s. Of all the eye salves I’ve tried, I’m really impressed with how quickly and efficiently GinZing works. Touted as a “shot of espresso for tired eyes,” it shapes up the eye area in a few different ways: Ginseng and caffeine act as instantly toning eye openers; magnolia helps reduce dark circles, even though some derms claim nothing really works on the latter; and brightening optics, silica and mica, superficially illuminate the area overall. (Word to the wise: Use sparingly and sensitive-skin types should test first, as the ingredients are no joke. I had a slight skin reaction but it cleared right up when I stopped slathering it on like a junkie.) Anyway, I’m so sleepy some mornings I don’t really care how it works just that it does, and after the past few weeks I’ve spent with this secret weapon, well, I can say we’re still in our honeymoon phase.

Quick Pic: This Chair’s A Real Lady

Designers Vladimir Tsesler and Sergei Voichenko designed this seat, called the Living Chair, which has apparently been subjected to some etiquette training and knows not to sit with its legs wide open. [Tsesler via Trend Hunter] Keep reading »

How Often Do You Buy New Jeans? And How Long Until You Chuck Them?

It goes without saying—the one item in your closet that’s older than the latest “High School Musical” star? Probably your favorite pair of jeans. A new survey from the Lakeside Shopping Centre in Essex, England finds that Brits hang on to their jeans longer than any other piece of clothing, and that nearly two million people have pairs they bought as much as 40 years ago.

Hole-y jeans! Keep reading »
