While we think some celebs, like Michelle Williams, deserve more privacy in their lives, we’re secretly a little happy the paparazzi snap them as they go about their business so we can see what they wear when they’re not walking a red carpet. Michelle Williams always looks so cute and casually put-together when she runs out for coffee, and we love how her shoes look as though she’s walked 1,000 miles in them. Want similar sneaks? Pick a pair from the 10 after the jump, then wear them every single day this summer, making sure not to avoid puddles or mud. Keep reading »
As we watched this video for the fifth time in a row, we tried to get a handle on weather this girl is laughing out of joy or pure embarrassment at the ‘hawk on her head. This neon-rainbow brilliance is the latest gem from Celebrityseaborn, the YouTube Channel that churns out a steady rotation of awesomely weird hair styles.
We’ve been longing to interview the hairstylist and owner of Celebrity Status Salon, where this video and our other favorite-The Eyebrow Weave-were taped, but we haven’t been able to track them down…yet. Our investigative hats are still on as we make several phone calls and scour the web, but in the meantime, enjoy this precious new gem of a video. And remember not to try this at home….

Marc by Marc Jacobs, or Little Marc, is usually a bit too hipster chic for us, but his new swimsuits are too smartly-retro and cute to resist. This sweet one-piece is our favorite, probably due to residual nun-ly tendencies from Catholic school. [$164, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Neiman Marcus] Keep reading »
The obsession with staying youthful has led many to paralyze their faces with toxin and completely alter the face they were given. But the beauty industry offers an even more bizarre way to keep skin soft and supple. Beauty insiders are touting spermine, a powerful antioxidant found in human sperm, as the solution to diminish wrinkles and smooth skin. Bioforskning (yes, that’s the actual name), a Norwegian company, is now synthesizing the substance in laboratories and selling it. And stateside, some women are shelling out as much as $250 for a spermine facial at spas. They could keep their money and head to a college dorm, where, I’m sure, the occupants would be more than willing to give sperm facials for free. There’d probably be free beer, too.

There’s no denying that in Hollywood, you are what you wear. In fact, everyone is so well styled that it’s often hard to tell the normals from the celebs (okay, that size two girl being followed by paparazzi? Yeah, she’s famous).
Yet, we gotta love LaLa land for its diverse and plentiful shopping areas. Hit up Beverly Hills for super luxe labels, Robertson for start gazing and fancy boutiques, or Melrose for funky thrift shops. Whether you’re looking for California-cool style or the latest celebrity trend, our list of Los Angeles shops will have you covered. Keep reading »
Summer is on its way now, so out with the flannels and in with pjs that have more sex appeal!
- These pink flamingo bottoms by C & C California are perhaps not sizzling hot, which is why I will leave it to you to decide what goes on top…if anything at all. [$32, C & C California, Bluefly.com]
- I will most certainly be happy in this cute nightdress from Scanty. The length and drawstring have a certain kittenish look, but the happy faces keeps the serious meter down. [$35, Scanty, Bluefly.com]
- Leopard print…my oh my, this is daring! Leopard print is high on rawr factor, but the jersey tops and bottoms make this look more of a wink-wink kind of sexy. [$35, Tart Intimates, Bluefly.com]
- Python. The world alone makes me think of a deadly sports car. This pink python number will certainly get hearts racing and I can still feel pretty in pink. [$66, Natori, Bluefly.com]
Statement pieces don’t have to be big or flashy. Take this super simple ring by Verameat with a thin band and small flower that’s sure to garner compliments. Wear it alone for a dainty look, or layer it with other rings for a funkier style. If you’re buying for yourself, choose the design in copper. For gifts, consider a classier metal, like silver or 14-karat gold. Just looking at it makes us think that everything’s coming up roses. [$48, Verameat.com] Keep reading »
Just when you thought excess was winding down, Chanel decided to release its tricked-out Segway, complete with signature quilted bag and logo wheels. This, we thought, must be an anomaly. As it turns out, not so much. Quite a few design houses have decided to take classic modes of transport—from bikes to surf boards to helicopters-—logo them up, and charge more than your mortgage for the goods.
Chanel is the main offender in the logo war, but they’re not the only ones stamping their insignia on everything that moves. The $12,000 Chanel bike, designer surf boards, and Segways are no more silly than Gucci’s (admittedly adorable) red bike or Prada’s super sleek and insanely expensive skis.
But the top honors have got to go to Hermès for their $6 million upholstered helicopter. The copter was purchased by Abu Dhabi-based Falcon Aviation. If I wanted to blow a few million on a designer helicopter, I would have gone with the black-and-white Versace chopper. It’s much more my color scheme. Keep reading »
This week in “Keepin’ It Classy,” I received a letter from a lady who is trying to get back out onto the dating scene, but she’s confused about current social mores:
“I’m recently single and although I’m not quite yet ready to mingle, I do want to go out with my old girlfriends. Now that I have so much free time, I thought that it would make my social life easier, but it totally hasn’t. I’m so used to just hanging out at home with my man or making couple plans, that I don’t know what the protocol for an average date with the girls is. When did I get this lame? If I want to make plans day of, can I text two friends at the same time to see what they’re doing? Or do I have to wait for one to respond first? Making plans to hang out with friends is even tougher than dating!”
