Beware Your Tiny Hat


File this under bizarre fashion emergencies. This guy superglued his tiny hat to his head and couldn’t get it off. He thought he might have to wear the tiny top hat around forever until Dr. Shabir saved the day by performing an emergency hat amputation, a hamputation. Let this be a warning to Helena Bonham Carter — superglue and tiny hats are a dangerous combination. [The Hairpin] Keep reading »

Is This Calvin Klein Ad Saying A Swear Word?

Take a good look at this Calvin Klein billboard ad, starring supermodel Lara Stone. Notice anything a bit naughty about it (other than the fact that she’s in a tit-baring bra and underwear)? Some savvy media critics say that the ad subliminally spells out a swear word. If you start at the legs of the table in the background, which form an F, and then follow the curve of Stone’s underwear line, which makes a U, to its logical CK end, well, you see where we’re going with this. But what do you think? An intentional swear or just a kooky coincidence? [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

Yes, it’s true: I got a makeover on TLC’s “What Not to Wear.”

First off, let’s get to the immediate questions. Yes, the show’s hosts Stacy London and Clinton Kelly are as warm, friendly and sweet off camera as they are on. Yes, you really do get $5,000 to spend on clothes and shoes in two days. Yes, they take all of your old clothes away and donate them to charity. Yes, Carmindy is a genius when it comes to makeup and Ted Gibson is a hair wizard.

But probably the most pressing question — why I, a style editor at a major women’s website, would need a complete “What Not to Wear” makeover — is going to take a little longer to answer. Keep reading »

A Bra For In Between Your Boobs?

File under: Problems we didn’t even know we could have. The La Decollette bra doesn’t look like a normal bra. It’s built with the bra cups cut out, and a wide swathe of fabric running up the middle of your chest. And you don’t wear it when you’re out and about — it’s to be worn at night, as a way of preventing something called “cleavage wrinkles.” Cleavage wrinkles are caused when your girls are pushed together too much in an uncontrolled way, so the La Decollette is supposed to manage their spacing while you sleep. Now that that problem’s solved, can we move on to finding a solution for hat head? [La Decollette] Keep reading »

How Colorful Is Your Closet?

The vast majority of my clothes are black, which means my closet is almost as dark as a Stanley Kubrick film. Usually I’m okay with this arrangement. I prefer to bring color into my wardrobe with accessories–hot pink shoes, bright blue tights, gold costume jewelry–but there are times when I see someone rocking a bright green dress or a red skirt/yellow cardigan combo and I yearn for a more colorful wardrobe. The truth is, though, black clothing is my comfort zone. I bought a red dress a few weeks ago but have barely worn it because it’s so attention-grabbing.

So I was wondering: how colorful is your wardrobe? Do you build on black basics like I do, or maybe favor white instead? What color do you wear most often and why? [Tie-dye maxi dress, $49.50, Delia*s] Keep reading »
