What’s Next In Modeling? The Full-Figured, The Octogenarian, And The Unshaved!

Does this look like a runway model to you? Maybe! Sick of looking at runways overcrowded by blond, Caucasian, skinny models? Pipeline has a terrific post on the latest trends in fashion model looks. The new professional coat hangers are girls with way more curves, men and women in their sixth, seventh, and eighth decades of life, burly dudes with body hair, and boys who aren’t afraid to wear dresses. Pipeline says: “From scary, hairy, husky dudes (thanks Vivienne Westwood!) to buxom gals in super-short minis (à la Mark Fast), this new model trend is sure keeping the typical shows a lot more interesting!” We love all the diversity. Check out the rest! [Pipeline] Keep reading »

Wacky Shoes Abound!

Crazy shoes. They’re all the rage! Last week, we admired Rodarte‘s urban glamazon heels that could have been made from leftover parts found at the local mechanic’s. Yesterday in Milan, Miuccia Prada debuted a series of Lucite and plastic chandelier shoes with a rainbow of heel colors and swinging crystals. Equipped with what looks to be a velcro strap, the Prada footwear looks somewhat comfy — at least they didn’t send the models tumbling, as did Rodarte’s Nicholas Kirkwood stilettos. After the jump, two more highlights of the over-the-top heels trend! Keep reading »

Is It Even Possible To Look Cute While You’re Riding A Bike?

Got the bike. Looking awesome while riding it? Not so easy. Rarely is there any gear for bikers that doesn’t look like Lance Armstrong’s hand-me-downs—i.e., it’s all way too serious stuff in not the best colors. Where’s the fun in that? Normally, I’d say go with skinny jeans, flats, and hope for the best, but after reading about a new line of clothes made explicitly (and expertly) for bikers, I’ll reconsider. Check these two ladies out: cycling enthusiast Amy Fleuriot and her friend, Sarah Buck, a former bike courier (bike messengers are no joke, people). Their company is called Cyclodelic and the two recent design grads are trying to make biking a bit more fashionable. Get a look at some of their genius innovations, after the jump. Keep reading »

Has The Recession Cut Back On Your Blowout Budget?

Check out the big-deal blowout Ashley Tisdale was rocking on the red carpet for last night’s premiere of “Fame.” Gotta say, it’s been a looooonnnggg time since I saw a celeb sport the basic (and expensive to all of us, not to mention time-consuming) blowout. There wasn’t a messy curl in sight. No artfully mussed waves. No going with your natural hair tendencies. And while I think the hairdo is sort of refreshing-looking after such a long stretch of bedhead-y hair—I have to wonder one thing … Keep reading »

Beauty Solutions For Curing Insomnia

Some nights the tossing and turning is inevitable — between deadlines, stress, and all the other crazy things you have going on, it’s always something. Obviously, you need a solution, because the under-eye bags are simply not cute or acceptable. Everyone knows that lavender is supposed to help induce zzz’s. But, besides filling my pillow with flowers, I need some alternative assistance.

According to the Telegraph, here are a few beauty-inducing solutions to those battle terrible insomnia moments. Keep reading »

When Eyelashes Grow Too Far


Earlier today we warned you about scary potential side effects involved with controversial lash-growing product Latisse. (And earlier this week, Kim Kardashian showed herself to be a cautionary tale when it comes to lash extremes.) But please check out model/actress Molly Sims and Co. in this highly educational video. And um, another word of caution: You probably don’t wanna be eating while you watch this video. [Funny Or Die] Keep reading »

Fashion Week Runway Moments That Channel Disney Characters

No matter how grown up you are now, don’t even try to tell us you weren’t full-on obsessed with at least one Disney character way back when. The thing is, you hit your teens and all of a sudden it was “weird” that you were still dressing up as Little Red Riding Hood. (Or so I was told.) But a handful of designers are clearly sick of the stigma attached to dressing like you’ve just left the set of a Disney movie. Designer Christopher Kane, for example, marched the perfect little gingham dress down the runway, channeling “Alice in Wonderland” but cooler. Refinery29 rounded up a few more look-alikes, after the jump. [Refinery29] Keep reading »

Cheapskate: 10 Things Under $102 At Creatures Of Comfort

We love clothes, um, a lot. Whether they’re from Walmart, JCPenney, or Gap — or on the fancier side — we think getting dressed in the morning is fun. We don’t, however, like to spend tons of money on new dresses and jeans. After all, we have 401ks to contribute to and rent to pay. As much as we like the nicer stuff and will splurge from time to time, we like sales even more, which is why we’re such Gilt Groupe and clearance fanatics. For this edition of Cheapskate, we’re showing off 10 items under $102 from the clearance section of one of the coolest stores that has an online home, Creatures of Comfort. Most of the designer clothes they sell go for big bucks; luckily, these won’t break the bank. Keep reading »

Have Hot Tub, Will Travel

Every once in a while, I’m sitting somewhere and I get the urge to soak in a hot tub. OK, this doesn’t really happen to me, but I’m sure that’s what the people behind SpaBerry are banking on. For $4,999, you can buy this portable two-person spa that works with any 110V outlet once filled with water. Also available are various BerryWraps, as the company calls the $399 stickers that change the look of your SpaBerry. We’re big fans of the Blueberry Wrap, because when you think about it, who wouldn’t want to soak in a tub of giant blueberries? [SpaBerry via Trendhunter] Keep reading »

Crave: Names And Notes Napkin Rings

Back-to-school blues? Satisfy your nostalgia with something both classic and reusable like these Names and Notes napkin rings, which are like mini-chalkboard place cards. Outfitted with a layer of black matte paint, the set of four comes with a white pencil for writing the names of your dinner party guests and an eraser sponge (clean slate, clean plate?). Or, you could use these doodads to discreetly pass notes (“Do you like me? Circle one: Yes, No”). We’d try decorating our table with white and black plates to match. [$58 for four, Gessato.com]
