Face Off: The “Project Runway All-Star Challenge”

You asked, and now the “Project Runway” gods have blessed you with an all-stars challenge featuring contestants from previous seasons vying for a $100,000 prize. Executive producer Jane Cha says the two-hour, one-off episode will be a bridge to the show’s new home on Lifetime — the first episode of “Project Runway” season six will air on the same night, Aug. 20. And the eight contestants are actually talented all-stars, not people who were only good for TV. Let’s take a closer look, after the jump! Keep reading »

Georgia Jagger Controversy: Should Teens Ever Appear Topless In Ads?

Agency Spy is taking issue with Hudson Jeans’s latest ad campaign, featuring 17-year-old Georgia Jagger, daughter of rock god Mick and supermodel Jerry Hall. Appearing topless (minus nipple action, however), the teenager models the jeans as she lounges in a seductive position. Agency Spy denounces the photo because young girls “are off limits when it comes to sexual references in advertising. This kind of work perpetuates the notion that children and sex somehow fit into the same category, which they clearly do not.” Keep reading »

Did The Recession Kill The Weave?

Full disclosure: We absolutely adore Solange Knowles’ new haircut. Yeah, we hear the snickers about it being an obvious ploy for attention. (And regarding its success, some of you may def beg to differ). Well, we think it works! With one cut, she’s accomplished what her normally over-the-top styling never seemed to do: make her look chic, edgy and radiant. We’ve also noticed that Rihanna, Cassie and even Ciara are all leaders of this new school of short, chic, and recession friendly ‘dos. Because if you think about it, rocking pounds of weave is not only high-maintenance, but expensive. Don’t you wish other stars like Beyonce, Tyra Banks and Britney Spears would take a cue and ditch their hair extensions? Actually, we take that last one back. We all remember Britney’s epic attempt, which resulted in an epic FAIL. Still. Have you done any chopping lately in order to save time and money? Keep reading »

Cellulite-Busting Undies Restocked, Mass Hysteria Ensues

It’s a good day for thigh-obsessed Londoners. Why? Because their beloved cellulite-busting panties are finally back in stores. Scala Bio Fir Anti-Cellulite knickers, which sold out completely within 24 hours when they first reached stores in May, have now exclusively returned to John Lewis, a British chain store. The “miracle” undies promise to help wearers lose inches on their tummies, thighs and hips via mysterious bio crystals that warm up with wear and melt fat off the body. Besides the thousands of Brits who have gone mad for it, celebs like Sienna Miller are also reputed fans. In an interview, John Lewis’s lingerie buyer, Helen Spencer, explained that the store is prepping for round two of buying madness over the undies. “This product has created a real phenomenon among women, with customers buying up to 10 pairs each.” Either they really do work, or it’s simply a case of massive amounts of wishful thinking.

Is The Recession Hurting Fashion Bloggers?

Cheapskate: Alloy Grows Up For Autumn

I enjoy perusing the Alloy catalog, but I often find that I’m a tad too … let’s say … mature for the clothes. I don’t think my belly button should make an appearance unless I’m sunbathing, and my life isn’t as happy-go-lucky as the models try to project. But I was pleasantly surprised by Alloy’s autumn offerings because they’re not only appropriate for teens and twenty-somethings, but also thirty-somethings. I’m loving the military details, blouse shapes, and full skirts. Take a peek at the super-affordable garments after the jump. Keep reading »

Yohji Yamamoto For Dr. Martens Boots

Doc Martens are the ultimate iconic grunge boots. From neon pink to army fatigue, we’ve seen many a color and print variation over the years, some better than others. But we’re truly stoked for the latest incarnations in floral and tweed created by equally iconic Japanese designer, Yohji Yamamoto. Our favorite from the collection, which debuts at retailers in late August, has got to be plain old black on black. We love how the classic leather boot is complimented by a rich, jet black, tweed panel on the foot. All this chicness is going to cost though. The boots are $710, which is hundreds more than what the standard Dr. Martens go for (around $150). Log on to Dr. Martens website to find out where you can buy them, if say, you’re really rich and feel like it’s worth an extra $560 to get the Yohji version. Um… Keep reading »

Love Nest: Vena Cava Designer Lisa Mayock’s Gorgeous Home

When I think of where designers or creative-types live, I picture these pitch-perfect spaces with amazing art, expensive rugs and the exact right shade of grey on the walls. Basically, a home that looks like an interior designer spent hundreds of billable hours making everything look flawless (but still a little lived in). Design Sponge just posted the Brooklyn home of Vena Cava co-designer—and in true US Weekly-verbage, “She’s just like us!” Sweet, budget design solutions, after the jump! Keep reading »

Quick Video: Adidas SLVRL Fall 2009 Collection

Can we give Adidas an A+ for creativity? Usually, clothing lines create a catalog or look book to show off the latest clothes for the season. But for their SLVR Label Autumn/Winter 2009-2010 collection, Adidas has added a short video that anyone can watch on YouTube. (FYI: The video was directed by Theo Stanley and features music by Sam Wagster, all under the creative direction of Pietsch Lim.) This one-minute video feels very much like a collage of sound and images, and it’s a cool way to view the clothing, if not a little too artsy. Eh, see what you think.

M.I.A.’s Kid Already A Trendsetter

M.I.A.’s crazy black and white polka-dotted House of Holland dress, which perfectly highlighted her very pregnant belly, was THE talk of the Grammys this year. Apparently, the singer loved it so much that she asked the designer, Henry Holland, to create a similar look for her kid, Ikhyd. Too cute. We hope he grows up to sport crazy stuff like his mom, ensuring us plenty of fashion fodder in the years to come. [Grazia] Keep reading »
