According to, erm, Ireland Online of all places, Britney Spears has a rather strange beauty regimen involving aluminum foil:
“The ‘Womanizer’ singer reportedly uses cool strips of the metallic cooking aid to give her lips an instant pick-me-up when she is feeling tired. A source said: ‘To keep her lips looking perky and fresh, her make-up artist takes a sheet from a stockpile of frozen foil in his freezer, pokes a hole in it so Britney can breath through her mouth and smoothes it over her face.’”
While I’ve heard of plenty of crazy beauty remedies and tried loads of weird treatments in my day, I’ve never heard of using freezing cold foil on your face, especially to make your lips look “perky and fresh?” Could this actually be for rizzles? Was I absent this day at beauty school? Anyone actually heard of this? [Ireland Online] Keep reading »
You know how sometimes the leather of your handbag feels so soft that you find yourself stroking it? Well, this handbag not only feels soft, but it will help you practice your masturbation technique — in case you still need help with that. [Fail Blog, 8/6/09] Keep reading »
Sorry, kids. No more Beckham underwear porn for you. Victoria Beckham has decided against continuing the super steamy underwear campaign that she models with her husband for Armani. The reason? She says she wants to concentrate on her fashion career, as she’ll be presenting her line at NYC Fashion Week for the second time. However, could it be that she’s finally embracing her inner prude? Apparently, the Beckham children have asked some questions about their naked parents. Says David, “When they first saw them, they were like: ‘Daddy, why are you in your underwear so everyone can see?’”
That isn’t enough, though, to tear the soccer star away from the campaign—he’s keeping his contract. So, will Armani slate another sexy celeb couple to shoot the line? What Hollywood pair would measure up? Brad and Angie? Will and Jada? [Grazia, NowMagazine.co.uk] Keep reading »
Talk about a test-drive. Recent fashion seasons have seen some of the highest heels on record, from Nina Ricci’s heel-less high-heels to Rodarte’s towering Frankenstein boots. They may be beautiful, but can real women walk to work in the seven-inch stilettos that sent some supermodels spilling on the runways? The ladies at New York‘s style blog, The Cut, pulled together some of the craziest footwear and found out what happens when you try and sashay down the street in them. “They’re incredibly uncomfortable,” one good sport reports. And as for those Nina Ricci heels? Forget about it — unless you like walking on your tiptoes. [The Cut] Keep reading »
Regardless of how classic (or boring) your outfit is, a big cocktail ring will immediately make it more interesting. We’re loving a few right now… Keep reading »
Excluding those gals who have the unique ability (and required lack of shame) to go around commando on top, we’ve all found ourselves in the dilemma of finding a super-cute top or dress… but no bra to wear with it. Since I require some serious support when it comes to my undergarments, I’ve tried just about anything to make do with what I’ve got at the last possible minute — sewing kits, safety pins (why did it take them so long to invent the Brabuddy?), tucking straps into my armpits, etc. — but now that I’m a little older, I’ve learned that the easiest solution is to just shop wiser! Why spend money on a separate strapless bra when you could buy the ultimate convertible bra that’s both strapless, strapped, racerback, and halter all in one? Continue reading… Keep reading »

My mother has given me some great (and critical) fashion wisdom over the years—don’t mix denims, wear what feels comfortable (note: this does not mean wearing pajamas in public), dress for the season (i.e., no flip-flops when it’s snowing), and never let your underwear peep through your clothes.
Oh, and always wear underwear. Keep reading »
You know what they say: The children are our future. Of late, this is especially the case in fashion, with Marc Jacobs’ foray into swimwear for tots and Cynthia Rowley’s new collection for mega-chain Babies”R”Us (uh, we know).
Hand it to Monsieur Jean Paul Gaultier to kick it up a notch with his new squeal-worthy kids line! Called Junior Jean-Paul Gaultier, the back-to-school designs take inspiration from the ’80s and quintessential (if not downright stereotypical) French style. For fashion-istas and -istos of 2-16 years of age, the styles include too-cute sailor dresses, cheesy (yet adorable) leopard jackets, and cheeky berets. Sheesh, if these kids dress this well before they’ve even hit puberty, what are they going to look like when they’re grown-ups? [FashionIndie.com] Keep reading »
Do something else that’s environmentally friendly during your shower, besides, uh, peeing in it. Today, beauty company Lush launches a do-gooder initiative with a few new products that can help save the rainforest. More specifically, the goal is to fight against destructive palm oil plantations, which are often responsible for mass deforestation. (Lush has developed a non-palm base for its soaps). Proceeds from the green “Jungle Soap,” which launches today, will help the Rainforest Foundation protect tribal homes, while 100 percent of the retail proceeds from The Charity Pot hand and body lotion will go to Orangutan protection societies (as these animals are endangered in the area).
You might want to start taking a closer look at the ingredients in your bath products, and see if you’re consuming a lot of palm oil. If so, you can introduce yourself to the world of non-palm soaps with a special sampler of nine different Lush fragrances, allowing you to clean your body and conscience. [Lush] Keep reading »
