The Inspiration Board: East Coast Prep

If you aspire to attend an Ivy League school, summer in the Hamptons and wouldn’t mind being compared to Blair Waldorf (no, not for one second!), you, my friend, are all about the East Coast prep look. The yacht-hot style has been around for decades, but “Gossip Girl” and the new, utterly repugnant reality show “NYC Prep” are bringing it to the mainstream with a vengeance. Good news is, you don’t have to live on the Upper East Side to look like you do. Keep reading »

Style Buzz: Maybelline Takes Over the Tents and Kate Moss Can Speak!

  • It’s no longer a maybe: Maybelline’s taking over Fashion Week this Fall, sponsoring the shows at Bryant Park. [WWD]
  • As it turns out, the Model Lounge at Delicatessen in Soho is jealousy-inducing, but not actually full of hot lady models getting it on. Sorry boys. [New York Post]
  • Kate Moss–known for her hot bod, love of snorting, and general unwillingness to grant interviews–has opened up to the press about photographer Rankin. So yeah, it’s nothing personal, but it’s edifying to know that she speaks in addition to just looking hot all the time. [Modelinia]
  • Kylie Minogue’s launching “Inverse,” a fragrance for men this September. Cause female pop stars know a lot about cologne, right? [WWD]

Marc Jacobs To Launch Kids Swimwear

Too bad we’re so darn big. We hear Marc Jacobs is launching what is sure to be the most awww-worthy swimwear collection for kids ever via his line, Little Marc. The reasonably priced goods for boys and girls will feature colorful cartoon graphics like fish kissing. Luckily, we’re not too envious, considering Marc put out a line of suits just this year for the grown-up ladies that we already love. The American designer is sure on a roll, considering his last recent announcement regarding a capsule collection geared towards teens, and now his bathing suits for tots. One thing’s for sure: Now we have a cute go-to gift for all the teensy nieces and nephews in our lives.

Okay, maybe we’re just a bit resentful that we weren’t such stylish kids. [Flypaper.bluefly.com and WWD, subscription only]

Excuse Me, Anna Wintour Is Calling

RJ Cutler’s Vogue documentary, “The September Issue,” comes out in New York at the end of August (when the Sept. 2009 issue will be hitting newsstands). After watching the trailer last month, we’ve been obsessed with Anna Wintour’s clever, biting style of criticism and can’t wait to hear more along the lines of, “This type seems so large and pretentious. It looks like it’s for blind people.” Until then, we’ll settle for these new ringtones. While Anna would never in a million years call us, the “Anna Wintour’s office” ring makes it sounds like her people are calling us! We’ve never felt so important in our lives.

Crave: The Pulpwood Queens’ Tiara-Wearing, Book-Sharing Guide To Life (Win One!)

When Kathy L. Patrick got laid off from her job, she opened Beauty and the Book, a combination beauty salon/bookstore. Shortly after, she started The Pulpwood Queens of East Texas, a raucous reading group that requires its members to wear a tiara, hot pink, and leopard print outfits (and now has chapters around the country). This part-autobiography, part-advice book, part-reading list will remind you that good things can come after crappy life events — and that a little silliness goes a long way. [$11.89, Amazon]

We’re giving away five copies of The Pulpwood Queens’ Tiara-Wearing, Book-Sharing Guide To Life, but you have to work if you want one. The five best commenters for this coming week — from today, Friday, July 17 through Thursday, July 23 — will be awarded with one. So, be as clever, smart, and original as you can!

Is Rihanna’s New ‘Do Hot Or Not?

I knew it had been way too long since she last changed it up. Check Rihanna out, or should I say, check it out—the new mop-top, completely shaved sides, mohawk-esque ‘do. If you ask me, there’s only one person right now who pulls off the whole shaved half-head trend and it’s this lady, above. It just works—the avant-garde fashion, the shades, the what-the-eff-you-looking-at-beyotch look. Love everything. Especially, when we are all inundated with perfectly turned out stars with their perfect-mussed-up beach curls and perfect Rachel Zoe-styled red carpet clothes. She’s real. (And, speaking of, how great would the hair look paired with some super frothy, ethereal dress—a very yin and yang juxtaposition.) What say you? Keep reading »

My Beef With Jersey (Sheets)

Not long ago, we told you about how American Apparel introduced a new line of jersey bedding. My first thought was innnn-teresting. Next brainwave: Why the hell do I want a set of jersey sheets? Sure, jersey sheets (t-shirt sheets for those not trolling the aisles of Bed, Bath & Beyond on their Sunday mornings) are insanely affordable and can feel (when they’re new) like the inside of a just-purchased sweatshirt before the first wash—but I just can’t get into them. For two reasons… Keep reading »
