Win Valentino’s “Last Emperor” DVD–With A Vintage Valentino Dress Thrown In

Someone please hand the geniuses behind this contest a cookie. Seriously! The teams behind Decades, the LA-based vintage couture boutique, and Phase 4 Films have linked up for a one-of-a-kind contest we’re sure you will be interested in: “Win a Valentino Gown with Valentino: The Last Emperor DVD Sweepstakes.” To celebrate the release of “Valentino: The Last Emperor” on DVD and Blu-ray, the dynamic duo are giving one lucky contestant the opportunity to get the DVD plus a vintage Valentino Dress. That’s right, you can kick back in couture, watch Valentino‘s life unfold on screen and pretend you are at your very own premiere. To enter the contest (which starts today!), submit your name, details and contact information to: valentinodvdcontest@phase4films.com. We don’t suggest that you email more than one entry (that disqualifies you from winning most contests), but we can’t say we blame you for trying either. [ValentinoMovie.com] Keep reading »

Beauty Test Drive: Trish McEvoy’s Lip Primer

I’d never heard of lip primer before I saw Trish McEvoy’s sleek black tube of the stuff. Face primer? Yes. Eyelid primer? Of course. But never lip primer. Naturally, we assumed it had to be some sort of miraculous well-kept secret and became rather inquisitive. Curious enough, in fact, to waste $22 on what turned out to be essentially glorified chapstick in a good-looking vessel. Keep reading »

Crave: Charles & Marie Bling Band Aid

Back in the day, if you got a scrape, things got all better once a Miss Piggy or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Band-Aid was placed on your boo-boo. Now, that doesn’t quite do the trick.

Reclaim your childhood joy with something a bit more grown-up — Bling Band Aids. Each bandage is adorned with four Swarovski crystals. Pick from three colors: white, red, or pink. You could wear one on your face for fun, as this model does, but we think they’d be just as cute covering your real nicks and scrapes. [$12, Charles & Marie]

Topless Rihanna Does Extreme Couture

Dayum, girl! Here’s a first look at Rihanna‘s much-hyped layout for Vogue Italia shot by Steven Klein: “Extreme Couture.” Last week, we showed you the cover. Now, we’ve got the spread. Shot in black, white, and platinum, with a lone streak of turquoise, these are some of the boldest, most beautiful pics of Rihanna that we’ve seen thus far. After the jump, more images, and RiRi rocks the pasties. [Fashion Copious] Keep reading »

Style Stealer: Keri Russell’s Field Jacket

Keri Russell was spotted out and about in Brooklyn this weekend, and while we couldn’t help but notice her white canvas slip-ons (our summer obsession), we think her army green field jacket would be perfect on a cool fall day. In fact, Amelia paired one with a printed blue and maroon dress today, which toned down the dress and ensured that the jacket didn’t look too “Army.” Check out six of our favorite utility jackets after the jump.

Website Proves That Some Boobs Are Jigglier Than Others

As those of us proud owners know, sometimes the boob jiggle factor can be really annoying during strenuous activities. Well, a New Zealand sports bra company, Shock Absorber, is combating jiggle one pair at a time. On their website, they have a very strange bounce-o-meter feature where you type in your cup size, select your activity level, and watch those girls shake. The big selling point? It shows you the jiggle factor of the girls in three states—-naked jiggle, with regular bra, and with a Shock Absorber sports bra. Sold! [Buzzfeed]

Naomi Campbell Says Minority Models Are Unwanted In Recession

Naomi Campbell has continued to work as a supermodel despite being 39, but even though she’s been able to defy fashion industry norms, she says black and other models of color are having a tough time in the recession. “This year, we have gone back all the way that we had advanced,” she told The Telegraph. “I don’t see any black woman, or of any other race, in big advertising campaigns.” Naomi says Italian Vogue‘s Black Issue last summer “made some noise,” but didn’t actually cause any changes in how often minority models are booked. “People, in the panic of the recession, don’t dare to put a girl of colour in their campaign, full stop,” she added. “Nor of any other race. It’s a shame. It’s very sad.”

Naomi has been in the fashion biz for a loooong time, so she’s seen a lot, but is she just talking out of her butt with this attack? I mean, black, Hispanic, and Asian models have always taken a back seat to white models, so what’s so different during the recession? Keep reading »

Kim Kardashian Can Add “Beauty Editor” To Her Resume

Kim Kardashian is one busy lady. Between guesting on “America’s Next Top Model,” on-again, off-againing with Reggie Bush, dying her hair blond and announcing a new fragrance deal, she can now add “Beauty Editor” to her list of accomplishments. Hot on the heels of not quite A-listers getting in on the print world action (Levi Johnston, we’re talking to you), tabloid OK! magazine announced today that Kim will be a contributing beauty editor and dispense her knowledge of creams and potions and blue Barbie eyeshadow to the world. As a former magazine beauty editor myself, I’m so honored that she’s joined our illustrious ranks of the few and the proud. I would warn her that it’s not all fun and games though. Trying out new facial techniques and getting your hair done for free is really tough! (Oh wait, on the other hand, she should be just fine.) And something tells us she’ll get to bypass all that pesky copy to edit and those unpleasant late nights in production and pass straight to the makeup chair. Keep reading »

Loving The Matte Nail Trend For Fall

Today our Catherine is absolutely rocking the Russian Navy shade from OPI‘s new Matte collection, and I have to say, it looks so right-on especially with fall approaching. The lack of shimmer is sophisticated, and the blue tint is less harsh than that whole black nail look that was so big last year. (Black has moved up to the lipstick category, more on that here.) Anyhoo, OPI isn’t alone on this: Knockout Cosmetics has also come out with Flatte, and we’re definitely crushing on Essie’s sparkle-free Neon line. Luckily, the flat-top hairstyle has shown no signs of showing up again. Keep reading »

The Original Supermodels Get Naked For D&G’s Anthology

To promote the release of the latest additions to D&G’s Anthology fragrance line, the designers have released a series of sexy ads featuring the original supermodels stripping off their clothes: Claudia Schiffer, Naomi Campbell, and Eva Herzigova, among others. With George Michael’s “Freedom” blaring in the background, it’s the ’90s all over again! Schiffer does 18 La Lune (for The Dreamer), Naomi does 3 L’Imperatrice (for The Star), and Eva does 10 La Roue de la Fortune (for The Player) with Fernando Fernandes. Get an eyeful of Naomi and Eva after the jump. Keep reading »
