A bridal salon at Costo? Perfect! So now you can buy 5,000 bars of soap, 10 gallons of olive oil, 24 pairs of new socks, and your wedding gown all in one trip. Not to mention all the free samples you can munch on while you deliberate. Kirstie Kelly’s signature bridal collection will be popping up in various Los Angeles area Costcos for the budget-conscious bride. The collection of six couture gowns range in price from $699 to $1399 and come in sizes 2 to 24. Not that I have to shop for a bridal gown anytime in the imminent future, but if I did, I wouldn’t be opposed to purchasing it at Costco. How about you? Would you get your wedding dress at Costco?

We’re psyched for spring for a number of reasons; warm weather brings bare legs, iced coffee, peonies, and, perhaps most importantly, the desire to fire up the grill. (Though we live in New York City, we purposefully collect a few friends with backyards and/or roof decks for such things.) A simple burger may be acceptable to serve at a barbecue, but we’d rather, to quote Emeril Lagasse, take things up a notch by stuffing our burgers with cheese, mushrooms, and other yumminess.

Now can they come up with a way to stuff hot dogs please?
New Power Studio paired this innovative penis hat with menswear at London Fashion Week. I am going to highly encourage men NOT to follow this trend, unless you enjoy being called a d**khead. [The Gloss] Keep reading »
Two years ago, after nearly 15 years of blow drying, flat ironing, highlighting, and dying, I was officially in a hair rut. I sat in the stylist’s chair. My hairdresser Tommy, a twentysomething, tattooed hipster was running his hands through my lackluster locks.
“I am 30 years old, ” I said, “I want rocking hair.” Keep reading »
UPDATE: John Galliano has released a statement in which he apologizes, says “I must face up to my own failures” and announces he is headed to rehab. Read the full statement here.
Sometimes I make the mistake of thinking people in creative, free-thinking professions like writing or fashion design have progressive views to back them up. My mistake. Designer John Galliano was arrested last week and fired from Dior yesterday after video tape surfaced of him slurring at patrons in a Paris café, “I love Hitler. … People like you would be dead. Your mothers, your forefathers, would all be f**king gassed.” Indefensible, right? But bizarrely, fashion designer Patricia Field from “Sex and the City,” “The Devil Wears Prada,” and “Confessions Of A Shopaholic,” has come to his defense. Keep reading »
