What’s The Most Backhanded Compliment You’ve Ever Received?

Meredith Viera’s list of crazy on-air antics must be at least as long and sordid as Kathie Lee Gifford’s, if not longer. (I’ll never forget the time she dissed a famous perfume expert and told him she didn’t “get” why anyone would buy a fine fragrance anyway, adding that she exclusively wears Jean (she pronounced it as “Gene”) Nate.) Anyhoo, this latest shenanigan is a low, even for her: During an interview in which consumer expert Janice Lieberman described deals people can get from police auction sites, Viera joked, “I can see all the NBC bean counters, all of my wardrobe is going to be from PropertyRoom.com, starting with [pointing to Lieberman] that ugly yellow dress.” ZING! After the audience gasped in horror, she “saved” the excruciating moment by screaming, “No, it looks cute on you. It looks cute on her!” Keep reading »

Check Out The Stylish Folk In Minneapolis

Yes—gasp!—there are fashion-savvy girls roaming the streets outside of New York, Paris, London and Milan and The Minneapoline will make you a believer. Add the street-fashion style website to your list right after The Sartorialist and Garance Dore for plenty of pics of normal girls (no Vogue editors! no professional stylists! no perfect-looking models!) in totally chic, cute and sometimes vintage get-ups. Personally, I can’t wait to check out how gals from St. Paul pull off looking semi-fashionable during the brutally cold winter weather. [The Minneapoline] Keep reading »

Scandal! Should Malia Obama Leave Her Peace Shirt At Home Next Time?

We (and the rest of the world) have eagerly been devouring the Obama ladies’ fashions like a pint of Ben & Jerry’s. And while there’s been some mild criticism when Michelle wears something that any normal celeb would, most of the world has taken the role of friendly fan. Yet, things became serious this weekend when it wasn’t Michelle, but Malia under the spotlight. And let’s just say things got really, really ugly. Keep reading »

The Inspiration Board: Bloody Vampires!

Angelina Jolie may have started the whole blood-wearing trend with that infamous vial of Billy Bob’s bodily fluids she used to wear back in the day, but thanks to society’s newfound obsession with all things vampire, the trend is now more mainstream, not to mention popular, than ever. People are literally ravenous (ha) for it: Etsy seller VonErickson’s $4 blood choker just got picked up on Buzzfeed. A few hours later, it was sold out, but a $16 version is now available. (How convenient!) And people (like us) have already been buzzing about DuWop’s much-anticipated bloody version of Lip Venom, $16, so the company is offering a sneak preview to US Weekly Readers. Here’s how hot it is: The website currently says, “Due to the extraordinary response to this product we are experiencing shipping delays.” Are you feeling it, too? After the jump, it’s blood chic!

Add Some Punch To Your Summer Look With A Bright Lip Color

This summer is about the extremes, from the brightest colors to head-to-toe nudes. The same was true with beauty trends. It’s time to say buh-bye to the black lip gloss trend of fall and winter (that never really caught on anyway) and hello to brights! Pastel pinks, hot pinks, light corals and neons are all the rage for lips. Fiery coral was seen at Proenza Schouler and bold pink at Hussein Chalayan. It’s hard to go wrong with these bright shades, as long as you find a shade that works for you. Continue reading Keep reading »

Balenciaga Vs. YSL? Two Similar Pairs Face Off

Here’s a look at one of the accessories from Balenciaga’s highly-anticipated Fall 2009 collection, a super sexy pump that features a cagey, mesh detail and bow tie closure. Yet something about it is strangely (or not?) reminiscent of YSL’s hugely popular cage strappy sandals. Both have a similar structure and feature ribbons around the ankles. Is it just us, or do you see the similarities, too? And if so, is it okay for another designer to steal draw inspiration from another? You tell me.

Flutter Away With Butterfly Prints For Summer!

They call it the “butterfly effect”– the theory that a butterfly can flap its wings in Chile to create a windstorm in Central Park (not to be taken literally, of course). Regardless of the power the butterfly’s wings have, it’s obvious that they’re a trend to watch out for! Names like Diane von Furstenberg and Juicy Couture have embraced the butterfly, so it’s no wonder these beautiful creatures have translated well into clothing and accessories. Consider it a happy medium between ultra-feminine floral prints and sultry animal prints. You can go small and subtle with a butterfly print scarf or go big with a skirt that looks like butterflies are resting on top! Remember, with all printed apparel, it’s best to keep accessories simple. This summer, stand out from the crowd of floral prints and reach for the butterflies instead! Take a look at the slideshow for a selection of butterfly prints. Keep reading »
