The webs have been buzzing over MAC‘s much-anticipated new all-black collection, Style Black, for awhile now. We’re excited to report it finally launched today! We are not just talking about eyeliner here, we’re talking black lipstick, baby. Now, we’ve all decided that the latter is one helluva tricky trend, but today we’ve got options. The line includes three Glimmerglass glosses that make black lips a little more wearable: There’s Blackfire Sheer black with berry-ish pearl; Bling Black Sheer, which is translucent black with a gold glimmer; and, of course, Blackware Creamy, which is a true black for the truly brave. Either you like to roll goth-style or you don’t, but we definitely plan on snapping up a couple of the limited editions. Check out the whole collection here. Keep reading »
Hair that’s not attached to people’s heads can be pretty gross. Like the chunks your roommate left in the shower drain. Or the hair bunnies you find under your bed. So, we’re not sure how we feel about the PrettyPretty seating collection designed by Dejana Kabiljo. They’re sort of gross but also quite pretty — just look at those glistening, well-conditioned locks! Made from horsetail hair, PrettyPretty seating comes in either a pouf (photo after the jump) or bar stool style with the hair either free-flowing or tied down, and Philippe Starck even chose the stool version for the main bar of the SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills. How would you feel about sitting atop a hunk of shiny horsehair? [1stDibs via Trend Hunter] Keep reading »
For some, Latisse has proven to be a miracle beauty product as the formula promises to grow full, long, thick eyelashes. Though Latisse was FDA approved, take heed: Cityfile is reporting that the FDA has now released an advisory letter regarding Latisse, the details of which are downright scary … Keep reading »
Look, I get that the ’80s are back — leggings, acid wash, neon, and cropped tops are everywhere. But hypercolor? Really? American Apparel is selling a thermochromatic jersey T-shirt on its website and our own Erin recently bought one for her boyfriend, who loves it! But, like, wasn’t hypercolor this huge technological advancement back in the late ’80s and early ’90s? Is this the fashion equivalent of bringing back the Walkman or something?

We didn’t think the crazy thrill ride that is London Fashion Week could be topped until we journeyed over to Spain to spy models on the Carlos Diez spring 2010 catwalk. And wow. Just wow. Brownface. Hairdo dress. Bare breasts. We have no words. [Madrid, 9/22/09] Keep reading »
This season on the runways, Marc Jacobs made a bold move when it came to footwear. Instead of the normal heels that designers show as part of their collection, he decided that flats are in for spring. Women all over sighed that their feet could take a break from the stilettos, at least according to Marc.
But despite the pain, aren’t the added few inches powerful? Don’t you crave looking straight into the eyes of your male counterparts at work? Christian Louboutin, Giuseppe Zanotti, Jimmy Choo, and Manolo Blahnik are all empires built on the idea that women want to wear heels, desire the intense heights, and simply feel dressed down in flats.

The French have some weird ideas when it comes to personal odors. To wit, what I like to call the “French Shower,” is where you don’t bathe for three days and douse yourself with deodorant and perfume. Which is why it doesn’t surprise me that French perfume company, L’Etat Libre d’Orange, produces a range of bizarre scents. Keep reading »
Sometimes we feel like Us Weekly‘s “The Fashion Police” and other similar style critics can be a tad harsh. Also, they tend to have these really boring, conservative styles and we have to wonder what their real fashion credentials are. (Case in point: US Weekly‘s “Top Cops” include random comedian Stefanie Novik and Chet Cannon of “The Real World, Brooklyn.” When did they ever go to design school!?) The Fashion Peacekeepers are here to say, hey, can’t everyone’s styles just get along?
Pink has a fierce new trapeze act in her new show (here in L.A.), and, on one hand, she is simply attempting to rock a trend that is so hot right now: After all, celebs just love to wear pasties! Rihanna does a great job with her Nippies, but as much as we look at the positives here, we’re afraid we just can’t help you out Pink. If you get arrested, don’t come crying to us to bail you out. (Oh wait, here’s another look on the bright side: By outfitting your own breast with a heart shape, you’ve saved us precious minutes in the day so we don’t have to Photoshop one on top of this pic. Thanks!) Keep reading »
It’s hard for us to look at a mannequin’s uncovered, plastic head and keep our pants on. They’re just that hot. The synthetic and/or sculpted hair, the fake, vacant eyes, and the total lack of resemblance to a real live woman just gets the blood flowing in our nether regions. Aww, yeah.
OK, so obviously that’s not true. They are mannequins. They are inanimate. We do not have a lady boner for them. But apparently the Iranian government is very concerned about the power of the mannequin to seduce and corrupt. Keep reading »
