In theory, the combination of Jude Law
, leather, and Russian accents could actually turn you on. But what’s more likely is that it will make you laugh. We told you about “Rage”–a film directed by Sally Potter about a Russian supermodel named Minx (played in drag by Mr. Law) and other kooky characters from the fashion world–back in July
. But now we know you can watch it entirely online at Babelgum
in a seven-part series. We haven’t had a chance to take time away from our busy blogging schedules to watch it yet, but the cast alone is a recipe for success—there’s a fashion critic played by Judi Dench, Steve Buscemi the photographer, as well as Lily Cole, Eddie Izzard, and John Leguizamo.
Hopefully, your internet won’t go out mid-showing, because then you’d be raging against the machine. (Sorry. We couldn’t help it.) [Babelgum.com via Popwatch] Keep reading »
“I just graduated college and unfortunately haven’t been able to find a job yet. Like any red blooded American female, I look forward to doing some shopping in the fall, but this year it’s kind of bummer since I have such low cash flow. Is there anything affordable I can buy to update my wardrobe for the season or will I have to wear my summer clothes and freeze?” – Liza

We are big lovers of red lipstick. But sometimes the full-on red lip is too much of a commitment. Our favorite low-maintenance alternative is a red lip stain that’ll leave you looking like you just ate cherry pie but managed to remain fabulous-looking.
Unfortunately, most stains don’t last nearly as long as they claim and prove either too watery or too sticky. So we were pleased to see that Sephora’s uber-inexpensive Lush Flush Wine Lip & Cheek Stain actually does the trick pretty well. It lasts a few hours, doesn’t cement your lips together and comes in the perfect shade of berry red. We like. [$10, Sephora] Keep reading »
The women in comic books have a tendency to be scantily clad, buxom babes (i.e., Barbarella). Lingerie brand Agent Provocateur is capitalizing on this rule of thumb by creating its own graphic novel with characters that wear the label’s skimpy bedroom clothes while saving the world from extinction. (According to the plot line, the ladies have lived without men for centuries, but now they’re out of semen and on the brink of extinction.)
Do you think it’s clever when brands do more than buy ads in magazines to get people to buy their wares? Or is this catalog in the form of a comic book a total waste of Agent Provocateur’s money? [Agent Provocateur via View On Fashion] Keep reading »
Demeter, the super cute line of highly specific single-note fragrances (you may remember them for creating timeless classics such as Dirt and Play-Doh), will now be made available to the masses via CVS drugstores. Their library contains over 250 fragrances. So, for this launch they’ve whittled down the options and will sell Baby Powder, Pure Soap, Patchouli, Honeysuckle, Laundromat and Lilac. It’s sad if you don’t see your favorite listed, but here’s the good news: While they’re usually sold for $10-$20, you can score them at CVS for $6-$10. How very, um, “recessionista” of them.

Your iPhone just became cooler than you are.
Thanks to AnOther magazine, Gareth Pugh, and Incase, now not only your 3G phone but also your 13” MacBook can be swathed in designer products. Because obviously your Apple products need some fashion love, too. The laptop holder is made from thick PVC, with quilted satin inside. It retails for 76 pounds, which is basically $121; the iPhone case, however, is slightly more affordable at 53 pounds or about $84. Up to you whether your device has been good enough to deserve designer goods.
Head over to shop.anothermag.com this weekend, or if you’re one of the lucky few at Paris Fashion Week, then make sure to stop at Colette to pick up your iPhone’s first Pugh. [Fashionista]
