“I found out when everybody else did. My reaction was, ‘Of course I’m pregnant. Why wouldn’t I be pregnant during this time?’ … It was exciting because this was the ultimate project. What we tried to do was be super diverse in the choices — from the Vivienne Westwood, which was a corseted ball gown, to a super futuristic modern Armani and the Givenchy couture, which was a little more traditional and medieval. We jumped across the board … Annie is a true movie star in every sense of the word without actually trying. She just is. She’s beyond talented and wears clothes so beautifully.”

“In light of this video, and as an individual who is proud to be Jewish, I will not be associated with Mr. Galliano in any way. I hope at the very least, these terrible comments remind us to reflect and act upon combating these still-existing prejudices that are the opposite of all that is beautiful.”
– Natalie Portman, the face of the Miss Dior Cherie fragrance, released a statement condemning Christian Dior designer John Galliano’s anti-Semitic rant. Galliano was caught on tape drunkenly declaring, “I love Hitler,” and then, addressing those filming him, “People like you would be dead today. Your mothers and forefathers would be f**king gassed.” Galliano has officially been fired from Dior, effective immediately. Said Dior CEO Sidney Toledano: “I very firmly condemn what was said by John Galliano, which totally contradicts the values which have always been defended by Christian Dior.” [StyleList] Keep reading »
Cheese puff celebs like Justin Bieber introduce their own nail polish lines. But Butter London has named their own limited edition nail polish for Kate Middleton, a shimmery purple called No More Waity Katie (her nickname in the press). Supposedly, No More Waity Katie is greige — grey and beige — but that color sure looks like purple to me! I’d like to get my fingers on this polish — and this polish on my fingers — but, hey, Butter, don’t you think $14 is a bit stiff? Not all of us are marrying into royalty, you know.

While watching stars arrive on the red carpet and judging their fashion choices is a fun way to pass the time before an awards show starts, I’m always a little bummed that so little attention is paid to the jewelry they’re wearing. Zoom in, dammit! Gimme close-ups! Often times, the bling choices celebs make are far more exciting than the the dresses themselves, and not just because these borrowed baubles are worth way, way more. Diamonds, rubies, emeralds, and platinum abound, and at this year’s Academy Awards (and at the parties afterward), the stars really rocked it. Let’s zoom in on some of their choices shall we? Here are our favorite jewelry pieces from the the big night…
I’m not sure what to think of this advertising scheme by Superette, a store in Australia and New Zealand. They put these stamps on park benches and mall seats, with the idea that women in short skirts and shorts would sit and have the ad imprinted on the back of their thighs. Part of me thinks this is super creative and kind of funny; but the other part would be pretty pissed if I looked down and realized that I had an ad pressed into my gams. Plus, the store says the imprints last up to an hour. Eek! What do you think of this? [Ads of the World] Keep reading »
