Miss Piggy Talks About Being A Fashion Pigcon

Just because Miss Piggy hasn’t been in the spotlight recently doesn’t mean she’s any less of a fashion icon. And naturally, Miss P would want you to know that. In a rare interview, she recently discussed fashion, trends and her favorite designers. Wearing a Marc Jacobs dress, she told TwinCities.com that she enjoys collaborating with designers, and understands the process: “As an artiste myself, I understand the designer’s need to let their creative spirit run free. So, I do not want to interfere with their designs until the actual fitting — at which point I tell them exactly what I want and when I want it.” She actually has a pretty good interview strategy, careful to not play favorites to any one designer (for fear of getting free stuff cut off … we would feel the same way), and giving the interviewer crap about body issues (“If by ‘body challenge’ you are suggesting that moi’s body has imperfections, then I suggest you retract the question.”)

As for what to wear for fall, we’ll be following Miss Piggy’s advice wholeheartedly: (1) Set trends, don’t follow them; (2) Is it expensive? (3) Did you pay for it? (4) Is it clean? [TwinCities.com] Keep reading »

Quick Pic: Rachel Zoe’s Studio Contains An Epic Amount Of Shoes

Check out the massive number of shoes Rachel Zoe has in her studio!

Madonna’s Cone Bra Looks Best Around Your Neck

I wouldn’t dare pull a Madonna and wear a cone-shaped bra as a top, but now I can pay homage to Jean Paul Gaultier’s iconic creation with this limited-edition necklace, $54, designed by Chris Habana for Oak‘s A.OK collection. If you’re more a fan of the late Michael Jackson or his kid sister, Habana has jewelry for you, too. Representing Janet Jackson circa Rhythm Nation, Habana created a hoop earring with a key charm, $36, and the King of Pop gets his tribute in the form of a white glove necklace, $46, (check them out, after the jump). Even though we can’t dance or sing–we’re even beyond the help of a really good producer–there’s a pop star in all of us. Or at least now there is dangling from our necks.

Who Are Trinny & Susannah And Why Are They Groping Alexa Chung?

Question: Why do people who work in fashion feel like it’s totally okay to reach out and feel someone else’s breasts in public? After watching British style experts Trinny and Susannah molest Alexa Chung on her show, we got total Isaac Mizrahi making Scarlett Johansson blush on the Golden Globe red carpet flashbacks. This is not okay people! [Daily Mail] Keep reading »

Frisky Rant: So What If Little Girls Wear Bikinis!

Earlier this week, I extolled the virtues of donning a thong bikini on the beach. I received a great deal of support from readers, but one subject that came up in the comments surprised me: whether it’s appropriate for 3- to 5-year-old girls to wear bikinis. Those opposed think the bikinis are too sexy for little girls, but I don’t see a problem with all little girl bikinis. (Bikini refers to all two-piece bathing suits, not just string bikinis.)

Beauty Test Drive: Queen Helene Mint Julep Natural Facial Scrub

Queen Helene’s Mint Julep Face Masque is a cult classic among beauty experts. People swear by its detoxifying prowess and it’s known to tighten and shrink the oiliest of pores. So, last time I was browsing the drugstore aisles I picked up a tube of the exfoliant version, Mint Julep Natural Facial Scrub, to see if it measured up. I was pretty pleased with my purchase: After all, at just under $4 it was more than affordable, and I was relieved to see that the company abstains from animal testing. And hell, I couldn’t wait to experience the “pleasant, tingling mint glow!” the label promised.

After a few weeks of testing, here’s the verdict… Keep reading »

Please Help Me Step Away From This Questionable Item

You know how sometimes you come across a pair of shoes or a dress or whatnot and you simply have to have it? And there’s no rhyme or reason to it and said object of desire probably only looks good on whomever it’s being modeled on and definitely won’t do you any favors in real life? I am currently having that moment. I know that this new Chloe Sevigny for Opening Ceremony unisex scarf pullover is going to make me look like a scary little old lady (one who is an extra in a medieval period film and playing a peasant). I also realize that the fabric — a blend of polyester and wool — will likely be itchy and possess asthmatic-like breathing problems. And the price tag, a whopping $495, is clearly insane. I mean, really cray-cray. Then again, part of me believes that it will be yummy and snuggly all fall (maybe it’s a Snuggie I’m really after?), and come winter, it’ll look smashing layered beneath a nice black overcoat. Judging by the fact that they only have one color left in stock, I’m not alone. Still, can anyone set me straight here? I’m afraid I’m going to make a very expensive mistake.

Yazbukey Jewelry Gives Good Face

You know how sometimes you just think—Man, I really wish I had a necklace with Billy Idol’s face on it. Plaguing, right?

Good thing we found out about Yazbukey, a French design duo who create necklaces with pendants depicting the faces of famous people. Using plexiglass as a base and shoelaces as fastenings, Yazbukey puts together silhouettes of your favorite icons including Billy Idol, electronic music-maker Sebastien Tellier, and yes, even Barack Obama (although … it’s not quite the most accurate rendering). The collection also includes coin purses shaped like mice, necklaces with art deco motifs, and brooches in the shapes of cartoon thought bubbles. These necklaces might not be “pretty,” but will they up your cool cred? Hellz, Yazbukey! Get them at Colette.fr. [Yazbukey.com via Cool Hunting] Keep reading »
