God willing, the Gosselins’ 15 minutes of fame will be but a flickering light come Halloween. But if the malevolent pop culture gods refuse our repeated offers of sacrificial Jonas Brothers, at least we’ll all have less frightening costumes this year than the Sarah Palin get-up of yore.

OK, yeah, I know what you’re going to say. Celebs, eat? Whaa? Last time I checked, Jen Aniston was a vegan/vegetarian/all-salad-all-day/raw foodist/no-foodist, that’s how she looks so freakin’ amazing in whatever pencil skirt or jeans-and-belt-combo she’s rocking today. (Or tomorrow, or yesterday…) Well, yeah—many stars have a strict diet they follow as well as an… READ MORE »

At last, the masses can finally get a glimpse into the gilded ivory tower that is Vogue via “The September Issue.” The documentary, which was put together by Harvard graduate R.J. Cutler, follows the editrix-in-chief Anna Wintour and her staff in the making of the legendary September 2007 issue. At five pounds and… READ MORE »

This morning, I awoke to find the first installment of The Zoe Report in my inbox. What a way to start the day! Celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe won us over with her reality show, “The Rachel Zoe Project,” but can another email newsletter succeed? Or will she become another Gwyneth Paltrow and The Zoe Report… READ MORE »

Here’s my problem with luxury denim these days: I’m tired of the same old brands, but I’m also not likely to go and drop half a paycheck on couture Alexander McQueen jeans, nor buy into the latest celeb line either. Finally, here’s a pair I can truly covet—Paul & Joe’s new collaboration with Citizens of… READ MORE »

Good thing we didn’t expect much. Pop star Miley Cyrus teamed up with Max Azria — designed for BCBG, Herve Leger, and Max Azria — to design a line for Walmart and the results are epically mall worthy. Shrunken vests? Check! Tie dye tanks? Obvi! Hipster plaid? Got it! Basically, the line is completely inoffensive… READ MORE »
