Gucci And Mary J. Blige Team Up For The Ladies

It’s not all about glitz and glam; Gucci also loves to give. The luxury brand is doing just that with their latest partnership with R&B icon, Mary J. Blige. To raise funds for Blige’s charity, Foundation For the Advancement of Women Now, INC, simply known as FFAWN — yes, the name could have been just a little shorter — they are relaunching a special-edition watch. The all-black, logo-embossed time piece, known as the Twirl watch, will be on sale on September 16, exclusively at Gucci’s 5th Avenue, New York City store (and nationwide on the 17th). A percentage of the proceeds will go directly to Blige’s charity. Now for the tough part: At $1895 a pop, we wonder just how many people will be springing for this pricey piece. Good luck Gucci.

Supermodel’s Dog Gets A Modeling Contract. Yes, Her Dog.

You know that modeling contract you always wanted (before you got real, that is)? It just went to Elle Macpherson‘s labradoodle. Yup, her dog. Bella, a five-year-old half lab/half poodle, is “Britain’s next top dog model” for the site Dogside.com, where he can be seen modeling products like scarves and coats. Bella Macpherson allegedly earns a five-figure sum for his “modeling”—er, sitting still for three seconds. Cute puppy, though. We just hope Elle is not one of those loopy stage parents like the “Toddlers & Tiaras” people. [The Cut] Keep reading »

“Real Woman” Does Not Look As Good In Topshop As Kate Moss Does

Sigh. I love The Daily Mail so much. You never know what those crazy British birds are gonna do next! Today it’s a “real woman” — cough, intrepid journalist, cough — Claire Coleman modeling clothes from the brand new Kate Moss for Topshop line. Her reasoning:

“When I see Kate Moss in a dress, I’m not just looking at the dress, I’m looking at Kate Moss and the dress. And however beautiful the dress, I can’t help thinking that it’s going to look an awful lot better on her than it does on me. Moss may not be getting any younger, but she still has the gamine proportions of the 16-year-olds who seem to form the backbone of Topshop’s customer base. The question is can real women like me and my friends, who are rather closer in age to Miss Moss, actually wear any of the clothes she is offering?”

Ain’t that the question indeed, sis! This definitely makes me consider how sometimes we buy clothes for all the wrong reasons. But that’s about it. Keep reading »

Etsy Find Of The Week: Vampire Love Bite Necklace

There’s nothing sexy about sporting a hickey, but a little vampire love bite peeking out from beneath the flip of your long, tousled hair? Um, yes. If you want to give everyone the idea you scored a date with one of the hotties from “True Blood” — and that things went well — this vampire love bite illusion necklace created by Etsy seller, GiraffeNeck, will do the trick. Made with a nylon-coated steel wire and two strategically placed red crystal beads, the necklace is an obvious must-have for all the fangbangers among us. [$9, Etsy] Keep reading »

The PooTrap Embarrasses Dogs, But Makes Owner’s Life Easier

Some folks are too fashionable to clean up after their dogs, even if they use stylish Poupou Royal bags. So we’re sure the PooTrap will be on everyone’s shopping wish list. It’s too bad their dogs probably won’t like wearing the PooTrap contraption that attaches to their tails. However, the makers of PooTrap have some wise advice for dog owners who may be apprehensive about the device:
“As you know there are many things dogs do not like such as showers, grooming, eating dry food. However, when they are used to all these things, they will be excited about it. According to our statistics, 98% of dogs will be used to ‘PooTrap’ after trying it for three days. Again they will be excited to see ‘PooTrap’ on them because this means that their owner is going to walk them out again.”

Oh, well then. [Impact Lab] Keep reading »

Crave: CND’s Colour & Effects Nail Polish (Win It!)

We’re not math whizzes, but we do know that having seven nail polish bottles in our bathroom means we can paint our nails seven different colors. Soon, however, nail polish arithmetic will get a whole lot more complicated thanks to CND’s upcoming Colour & Effects line. With 50 Colours available — from Brilliant White to Blackjack, and everything in between — along with 15 Effects (variations on pearly, shimmery, and glittery) to layer underneath or on top, there aren’t endless possibilities, but there are hundreds more than we can count on our uniquely manicured hands. [$9 - $11, CND]

We’re giving five readers a bottle of Oil Slick and a bottle of Sapphire Sparkle from CND’s Colour & Effects line (which doesn’t even hit salons until later this fall!), but you have to work if you want your nails to look good. The five best commenters for this coming week — from today, Friday, Aug. 28 through Thursday, Sept. 3 — will be awarded with a set. So, be as clever, smart, and original as you can!

Beauty Test Drive: Diorshow Iconic Mascara

Generally speaking, I’m happy with my mascara. Fiberwig and I have been through a lot together and it’s remained pretty true, never smudging and leaving me raccoon-eyed when I’m going for smoky-eyed. But every once in a while, you’ve just got to try something new. When I received a bag of Dior goodies to road-test the other day, I knew the time had come to betray the mascara that’s seen me through everything from first dates to weddings. (Other people’s weddings, that is…)

I felt a little dirty at first, as I swiped on the Diorshow Iconic mascara, wand clenched in my sweaty, guilty hand. Then something amazing happened. Keep reading »

How ‘Bout These John Galliano Lace-Up Platforms?

The arctic chill of Russia is what inspired John Galliano’s Fall 2009 collection. From balloon-y peasant blouses to full-skirted wool coats, everything echoed an Eastern European winter. Everything except the shoes, or more to the point: these shoes. Besides the furry pom-poms, nothing about Galliano’s Fall 2009 lace-up boots says winter. But that doesn’t stop us from loving them. They’re available in an array of colors, but our favorites are the red (here) and purple. Loving don’t mean buying though. These pretty pom-poms are sure to set one back a pretty penny: several hundred (over a grand?) dollars worth. [Fab Sugar] Keep reading »

Bras For Ladies With Fake Boobs

Let me guess: Now that you’ve had a boob job, your old bras don’t exactly fit? Hey, it’s not like the doctor said double FFs were going to be comfy to carry around, let alone easy to find a brazier for. Well, thanks to lingerie designer Le Mystère, women who have gone under the knife can now buy over-the-shoulder boulder holders that are comfortable and still stylish. While surgeons should probably just throw a sample in after the expensive surgery, these bras run from $76 to $84 smackeroos. I guess it’s double your cup, double the Victoria’s Secret price tag?
