We Knew Wedding Dresses Were Expensive, But Half A Mil?

While this $501,640 dress isn’t the most expensive wedding gown we’ve met, it’s certainly up there. Besides yards and yards of platinum-colored tulle, the dress includes 10 feet of platinum chain, 33 carats of diamonds, 145.84 carats of aquamarine, white keshi pearls, and a white south sea pearl pendant. The dress is a one-of-a-kind collaboration between Tutera, who hosts “My Fair Wedding,” and jewelry designer Erica Courtney. Call us cheap, but we don’t get it. Who needs platinum chain on a piece of clothing they’re going to wear one time? Especially one that’s not even cute. [Luxist] Keep reading »

They Call Me The Crazy Cat Lady

I admit it: I’m about four whiskers shy of being a full-on crazy cat lady. I have two cats of my own and would happily adopt more if my poor husband didn’t have mild allergies. I even promised in my wedding vows that I’d never bring home a third kitten, but that doesn’t stop me from cooing at cats I see in apartment windows, on the TV, and in pet carriers on the subway, presumably on their way to the vet. My mother gets me a kitten calendar every Christmas and each month I look forward to flipping the page to a new picture of adorable kitties sleeping in men’s dress shoes or napping in a mini hammock. All this is to say that when I saw this heated cat blanket, a “luxurious silky plush cover” that heats to 102°F, I knew exactly what I was getting my Miles and Simone for Christmas this year! OK, fine, so maybe I’m only one whisker shy of full-on crazy cat lady. [$79.99, Doctors Foster and Smith] [via Outblush] Keep reading »

Major Tool Graduates From “Tool Academy” To Fashion Designer Tool

One of our favorite style bloggers, Jill at Trend de la Creme, uncovers the horrifying news that Shawn Southern, otherwise known as “Loud Mouth Tool” on the first season of VH1′s “Tool Academy,” has his own fashion line. For those of us demented enough to watch “Tool Academy” (me!), you may remember the North Carolina native as the shouty, punchy big guy who had multiple girlfriends. Also, he has a tattoo over his wang that reads: “Kung Fu Hero.” (No, I did not make that up.) In any case, now he has a clothing line of sorts. Jill deems it a “Kung Fu Zero.” The garments include skull underpants, suicidal robots, and other random, stupid crap. Read Jill’s hilarious take here. Keep reading »

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 »
