Rihanna’s fashion has traveled so far into the world of vulgar and extravagant that it’s refreshing to see her in an outfit that’s, dare I say, normal. I liked this look she wore in London recently so much that I found a way for us mere mortals to get it. Peep a similar look to Rihanna’s after the jump. Keep reading »
Look! It’s models getting ready to walk in the Victoria’s Secret runway show! They call this “couture.” (Hm.) They are very excited about their fittings! The theme is “A Night of 1,000 Fantasies,” which is one way of saying, “Men across the country will be masturbating to this.” There are six sections that represent six types of women! What are they? I must know which one I am! They are Tough Love, Game On, Country Girls, Heavenly Bodies, Wild Things, and Pink. Which one am I?! Who knows. Adriana Lima says, “Zeriouzzly, dis iz deh beegest weeng eye evah hayd.” We concur! Only 20 more days until this thing airs. We can hardly stand the wait. Keep reading »
Usually before they graduate from high school — or at least college — most people have figured out how to unhook a bra without too much hassle. But for the finger fumblers out there, a French lingerie company has designed some bras that even a toddler could tear off a woman in a matter of seconds. Wait, what? At any rate, the Lingerie Dement line, which translates as “insane lingerie,” uses magnetic clasps for closure instead of traditional hooks. Matching panties even come with magnets at the hips, making it a snap to take them off. The company calls the line “romantic and naughty,” and says the magnets are “very strong.” Celebrity stylist Sam Saboura commented: “There’s kind of a fun quality to undressing someone in an intimate way, and this would give that tear-away effect.” This “fun quality” of undressing will set you back, though. The panties alone start at around $100 and the whole line is currently only available in France. [via DailyMail] Keep reading »
Oops, spoiler alert. (Oh, come on, you had to live under a rock to not know that Bella and Edward end up together.) InStyle found nine designers with a bunch of time on their hands to imagine a wedding gown for bride-to-be Bella Swan. Let me repeat: actual, working designers like Zac Posen, Christian Siriano and Badgley Mischka made wedding gown sketches for a fictional character. What is this world coming to?

Looks like Jason Wu is giving Vera Wang a run for her money. The Michelle Obama-preferred designer is entering the bridal market with a line of wedding dresses for Net-A-Porter. Says Wu: “The capsule collection includes wonderful options for a bride, but also has a relaxed attitude with pieces that can be worn to other occasions.” We’re loving the sketches, which look fun and young while staying classic. As for price, the dresses will retail from $795 to $4,000. Which, as far as wedding gowns go, isn’t exorbitant. [Fashion Foie Gras] Keep reading »
It’s easy to send an email or a tweet, but it’s difficult for the recipient to hold on to that message. A friend or colleague can, however, tack a hand-written note onto their bulletin board. Show your style and recognize your friend’s fabulousness by sending her a note written on Effie’s Paper, a line of stationery designed by lifestyle blogger and author Kalyn Johnson Chandler. Although there are several designs, we’re partial to the “Daarhling, The Heels Can Never Be High Enough!” note cards because what could be more fab than your name in pretty script and a pair of sky-high leopard-print heels?
