Is Rihanna going to single-handedly bring back fake, acrylic, prom-style nails? Take a look at her fingers, specifically her freakishly-long nails. Not only do they have some major length, but check out the shape. Most people rock the square with rounded edges look. Not RiRi. Her nails are almost filed into a point. Very Elvira. And this isn’t the first super-long sighting. Back in March, she went long with green polish! I find it hard enough keeping my shorter-than-my-fingertips nails clean. Imagine the crap that accumulates on the underside of her claws. Grody. Do you miss long nails, or would you rather see them stay in the past where (as anyone who types on a computer most of the day knows) they kind of belong? Keep reading »
We love theBalm makeup collection’s Hot Mama — it’s the perfect compact for emergency beauty touch-up sessions when you’re out and about. The best part? It’s a blush, eyeshadow, and highlighter all in one, leaving lots more room for accidental purchases in your bag. The idea behind Hot Mama is that you can look good with minimal effort just like the hot mamas already out there, multitasking their busy lives with their beauty routines.

I own 14 pairs of jeans and can pretty much sort those pairs into two piles: the fat jeans and the skinny ones. Of course, I never actually get rid of the latter because there’s always the eternal hope that I will one day fit back into them. Rag & Bone has now come out with these handy numbers, which allow you to combine your piles into one. Feeling chunky? Leave ‘em unzipped. Just recovered from a week-long stomach flu? Zip ‘em up skinny style. [$287.40, Shopconfederacy.com via NY Mag] Keep reading »
I never realized how difficult it is to apply lipstick. I mean, our Simcha applies a perfect pout in ruby red, no less, several times a day. But if you’re someone that needs a little lip(stick) service or really likes beauty gadgets, then Alcone’s Lip Stamp is for you. The kit comes with the stamp tool and five cards with 10 different lip shapes. All you have to do is choose the right lip shape, smear your favorite lipstick on the stamp, and stamp away. I can’t imagine any woman wanting to add another step to her beauty routine, but think of the fun you’d have sealing every phone bill envelope with a kiss. [$24.95, Alcone Company] Keep reading »
Maybe Lindsay is under an especially pinchy deadline, or she’s having trouble taking time out of her busy social schedule, because today FabSugar announced a rather dubious-sounding contest: They’ve teamed up with Lindsay Lohan and her to be taken very seriously 6126 leggings biz to launch a very major contest. They’re calling on blog readers like you to submit tights-as-pants designs — which will be judged by LiLo, ahem — and if you win, well, let’s just say you’ll be $1,000 richer and you can add “leggings designer” to your resume. Which is odd, because that’s what we thought Lindsay was purporting to be? [FabSugar] Keep reading »
If you want to kick it (heh) up a notch, check out Sabrina Dehoff’s new sneaker jewelry. Designed specifically for the re-release of Nike’s Air Max 1 shoe, Dehoff’s creations include smooth gold plates that rest on the laces (or are molded to the toes), blingy diamond accents, and purple rope laces with gold tips.
We’ve explored the concept of shoe jewelry before, and previously thought it was limited to high heels. What do you think? Is it worth it to dress up your non-dressy shoes? A few more looks after the jump. [TodayandTomorrow.net]

Come to think of it, it’s hard to think of an example of airbrushing gone right, but this London Fog incident is certainly disturbing. According to WWD, the company, which shot the campaign at the beginning of Gisele’s pregnancy, decided to erase her pregnant stomach in order to “respect her privacy.” It seems parent corporation Iconix, who also owns Rampage, transferred the supermodel to their London Fog division so she could wear trench coats instead of tight-fitting jeans. Is this some kind of bizarre maternity discrimination? If they were so concerned about hiding her pregnancy, why did they have to shoot her naked beneath said coat? And most importantly, how freakin’ weird does this ad look? [WWD]

There is a new fashion movie coming out on September 24th. It is called “RAGE.” It looks full-on ridiculous. With the aid of many colored backdrops and pseudo-deep statements from interviewees at the scene, a blogger working in a New York fashion house records the events surrounding a murder. Starring the likes of a tranny-fied Jude Law, model Lily Cole (still attempting to act!), Judi Dench being generally awesome, and Steve Buscemi making you feel skeevy, the thing is jam-packed with celebrities you never wanted to see together in one movie. Check out the trailer above and what we loved about it, after the jump… Keep reading »
When the harem pant trend came along this spring, many were reluctant to jump on the baggy-bottomed train. And with good reason—why go all gypsy-ass when you know people are going to stare at you, or think you’re smuggling produce or drugs in your crotch region?
True, true, the garment is one tricky trend. But, there are some wonderful things about them, too. Consider the following, and you may find yourself having a big old pants party before you know it. Keep reading »
