You can be sure Olympic figure skater Johnny Weir‘s personal closet is beyond — but now the gay icon/dream BFF is making sure your closet can be beyond, too. Johnny’s debuting a line of six LBDs garnished with sequins, ostrich feathers, tulle and silk taffetta on eDressMe.com on April 30. Sizes range from 0 to 12, while princes range between $198 to $298, which is a bit steep for a “celebrity line,” I’ll grant you. (I wouldn’t fork over that kind of dough for, say, Jessica Simpson.) But Johnny Weir isn’t just any old celeb. As a boy who needed to twist and turn and double-axle in costumes throughout his ice skating career, I bet Johnny knows a thing or two about design. Stay tuned for a planned winter 2011/2012 collection from Johnny Weir, too!

I know I poop all over Gwyneth Paltrow and her lifestyle newsletter GOOP on a fairly frequent basis and that some of you don’t, uh, agree with me. To each their own! The thing is, I am able to put aside my personal distaste for GP and acknowledge that I absolutely love her style. With very few exceptions — the Alexander McQueen getup that made her boobs look like chicken cutlets, for example — I think Gwyneth looks flawless every time she walks out the door. Last week’s appearance on “Ellen,” for example — I adore the simplicity of this black and white outfit, especially because it is so easy to replicate on any budget. After the jump, the three keys pieces you need, all under $100, which means you’ll have money left over for that salade niçoise you’ve been craving. Keep reading »

, 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

“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 »
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 »
