Karl Lagerfeld Tries To Sell Some Ice Cream


Somehow, it seems fitting that Karl Lagerfeld, the man who invented a diet plan consisting mainly of Diet Coke and cigarettes, should be directing a high-camp commercial for an ice cream brand. Watch this hilarious commercial directed by Herr Karl and starring Rachel Bilson and Baptiste Giabiconi. [YouTube] Keep reading »

André Leon Talley Does The Green Thing, Too

“At Vogue we’re going to have certain issues devoted to green. We’ve asked certain designers to make green clothes. I don’t think everyone should be wearing hip sacks and burlap blouses. There’s still room for luxury … You have to wake up and be conscious of everything, the way you dispose of things. I do make trips to the Dumpster. And I am proud of that because it’s far from my house. But I make a special effort to go to the Dumpster and put the cardboard with the cardboard, and plastic with the plastics.”

– André Leon Talley, Vogue‘s editor-at-large and “America’s Next Top Model” judge , on how he’s living a green lifestyle. [NYMag.com] Keep reading »

Do You Wear Bold Lipstick For Yourself Or Your Guy?

Since I decided to go bold with my lipstick two years ago, there have been few occasions that I’ve painted my pout nude. Yet, my boyfriend can’t seem to get past “the attention” my bright lips bring.

I proudly rock bold lips for me and could care less about the stares or whispers. Sorry, J!

And according to a new survey from L’Oréal Paris, there are many women out there like me who refuse to bite the bold lipstick bullet. Read more… Keep reading »

HUDSON: Denim You Can Tolerate In The Summer

Even if you’re a die-hard jeans girl 10 months out of the year, when summer arrives, heavy denim is probably the last thing you reach for. But HUDSON jeans’ spring/summer 2011 collection is denim you can actually tolerate in the heat. Inspired by the culture of Dogtown and Venice, CA in the ’70s, the collection is laid-back, but also has a European edge. The jeans are made of lightweight denim that has been softened and come in faded red, pink, yellow hues. But even if colored denim isn’t your thing, HUDSON jeans are also available in light and medium wash blue and white–in styles ranging from skinny to shorts to flare to cropped. HUDSON continues to play with the DIY elements, like repair stitches, frayed edges, exposed button flies, and distressed holes, I loved last year. But the two jean styles that grabbed my attention were a pair of red cropped jeans and pair of white “N.1 AXL” skinny jeans with leather lacing along the back of the calf, from the HUDSON by Georgia-May Jagger collaboration. See more pics after the jump. [HUDSON] Keep reading »

We’re Firmly Against The Head Thong

Girls, you are wearing a thong on your hair. And no, Nicole Richie and Vanessa Hudgens, I don’t care that it’s a fancy rhinestone-encrusted thong. A thong is a thong is a thong–isn’t that what Marcel Duchamp said? Or was it Sisqo? Whatever. I understand that we are all trying to find new ways to wear jewelry and spend our hard-earned Disney cash, but come on … a head thong is not the way to go. You look like you lost interest halfway into putting a necklace on. And okay, fine, maybe you did. [MTV Style] Keep reading »

Are Push Presents Really Necessary?

I love receiving gifts, but even I’m a little confused about the phenomenon of the push present. As you might have heard, the push present is a gift, often a piece of jewelry, a new father gives to a new mother when she gives birth to their first child. If you’re a fan of “The Real Housewives of Orange County,” then you might recall that the newest cast member Peggy Tanous received a Bentley as her push present. Now, the push present sounds like a gesture of gratitude, but there also seems to be a thick layer of guilt surrounding it too. Moms seem to want some compensation for carrying a baby for nine months, getting sick, surviving labor, and losing their figure. But shouldn’t the new bundle of joy be the greatest gift? Also, the idea of the push present seems to be a marketing ploy by the jewelry and luxury brands industry. Of course, I wouldn’t turn away a push present from my future husband, but I also wouldn’t want us to go into unnecessary debt because we decided to start a family. How do you feel about push presents? Did you receive a push present after giving birth? Do you want one when you become a mother? Keep reading »
