Would You Wear: House Of Dereon Spring 2011 Shoes?

Photos of the spring 2011 shoe collection from Beyonce’s House of Dereon have hit the web. And I’m completely underwhelmed because all these styles look really familiar. Similar incarnations of that gladiator sandal, for instance, made their debut two summers ago and were extremely popular this past summer. And the black and white sandal and the white studded sandal look like shoes anyone could buy from Target or Payless. There isn’t anything wrong with shopping at Target and Payless, mind you, but isn’t Beyonce trying to establish House of Dereon as a brand ahead of the curve? That is the goal of most designers, isn’t it — to start the trends, not copy them? So, you know my opinion now, but would you wear shoes from the House of Dereon spring collection?

Um, No: Ch’Arms, The Bodyshapers For Your Arms

You can blame Michelle Obama for this one. Thanks, Mobama, for making America so obsessed with your sculpted guns. Of course, most of us are too lazy to work out hardcore enough to actually attain Mobama-worthy results. So now there are shaping devices for your arms to fake having toned limbs. In the bizarro mixed-up world of the Home Shopping Network, you may come across these: Ch’Arms, the Spanx-like body shapers for your arms. Keep reading »

A Winter Hat To Tap Into Your Animal Instincts

Guess what: winter sucks. If you live in the Eastern hemisphere like we do, you know that starting December 1st or so, it can be nearly impossible to go outside and feel even moderately warm. You need armor. And preferably something heavy-duty that doesn’t look crazy (read: no homemade mustache knit caps or scary bank robber-style hats). Our pick? This Topshop faux fur trapper hat, which will keep you cozy and make a statement.

Crystal Renn Gets Plastic Surgery For Vogue Paris

The last time we checked in with (former?) plus-sized model Crystal Renn, she was having an orgy with a plate of spaghetti. Now, she’s gone a few steps further down the weird trail with a new editorial in Vogue Paris — the December issue is guest-edited by designer Tom Ford — in which she plays a plastic surgery victim and frolics with young men. She also bares her cooch and generally looks like a loon. Check out some more examples of Crystal gone wild after the jump. Keep reading »

Facebook For Your Feet

As much as Facebook, Twitter, and the internet are a part of our lives, they remain a weirdly invisible part. If you’re a die-hard Facebook fan, you should check out Gerry Mckay’s Adidas shoes design, which puts the Facebook brand front and center in your wardrobe (well, more like front and down … on your feet). Anyhoo. The designer’s concept is only a creative idea—these kicks aren’t actually available anywhere yet. But we’d bet that with the viral action he’s getting with these images, tech companies and Adidas are bound to notice, and possibly think it’s a good idea. Check out McKay’s Twitter shoe mock-up, after the jump! [Gawker] Keep reading »

What Footwear Could Be More Unnecessary Than The Teva Stiletto?

Lord help us, Tevas are re-populating. Behold the $330 Teva stilettos, made in collaboration with the shoe designer Grey Ant. Could any footwear be more unnecessary — or overpriced? [Or grotesque? — Editor] Sadly, I can see my hippie sister wearing these to a “formal” event. [The Gloss] Keep reading »
