Lulu Guinness Creates The First Moving Handbag

Lulu Guinness wanted to make sure her 20th anniversary as a designer was special, so she established the Lulu Guinness Scholarship to help young designers explore a career of accessory design at the London College of Fashion. And she created, with the help of Adam Wright, the first animatronic, or moving, handbag. The birdcage handbag contains a mechanical bird that actually moves and sings, yet is large enough to fit a lipstick and a stash of cash. Wright has also worked with Tim Burton and created the famous animatronic catwalks for designer Hussein Chalayan. The handbag won’t be mass produced, which is kind of a good thing because all that tweet-tweeting would get annoying after a while. But to hear Guinness passionately discuss the making of it in the video above makes me want to see the purse in person. [Dazed Digital]

Kira Plastinina Reopening LA Stores After Epic Failure Last Year

Despite her massive U.S. failure last year — one which culminated in closing every store she’d opened in a matter of months — Russian teen designer and heiress Kira Plastinina is reopening two L.A. stores in the coming weeks. But this time, she’s got a new name — K. Plastinina rather than Kira Plastinina — and a second, higher priced line. That may distract people from the hilariousness of the venture for a bit, but this doesn’t seem like particularly sound business strategy. She’s already got 70 successful stores in Russia and we’re kind of wondering why she won’t just let it go and realize that we don’t want her tacky junk here. But she does get points for persistence!

Finally, A Bra For The Less-Endowed

I´ve been a card carrying member of the Itty Bitty Titty Committee since puberty. If we have this in common, then let´s rejoice and burn our padded bras together: there´s a new over-the-shoulder-boulder-holder just for pebbles like ours. It’s called the Itty Bitty Bra and it does what it says: covers your itty-bitties and makes them look sexy. Taylor Swift and “Dancing With The Stars” Misty May are already fans of the line which also offers matching bikini panties and camisoles. Find them online here. Keep reading »

What To Wear When You Are Hungover

“The Hangover” is already a summer smash, killing it at the box office. While your morning-afters probably aren’t as dramatic, there’s no denying that being hungover sucks. And looking good when you feel ready to barf at any moment? Next to impossible. Be prepared next time with an outfit like this that will maximize your comfort.

  1. Sunglasses are a must, and the darker the lens, the better. [$162, Marc Jacobs, Bluefly.com]
  2. This loose-fitting gauze top won’t constrict, and can also allow you to wear a camisole sans bra underneath. [$38, BDG, Urbanoutfitters.com]
  3. Think harem pants are a risky fashion choice? Consider that a) they are super comfy and b) when you’re hungover you could give a rat’s ass. [$87, Splendid.com]
  4. Birkenstocks have a remarkable cushion and now come in non-hippy colors like this snazzy silver. [$79.95, Endless.com]

Crave: Christie Brinkley Wildflowers Turquoise Ring In Sterling Silver

Christie Brinkley’s all-American style isn’t something we’d ever copy, but that hasn’t stopped us from coveting this ring from her line with Ross-Simons. The turquoise petals are so bright and cheerful, and the amethysts remind us of lilacs. We’d wear this ring with a simple dress or jeans and a white T-shirt so it would be the eye-catcher of the outfit. Now all we have to do is stick to our lunch menu of peanut butter sandwiches so we can afford it. [$125, Ross-Simons] Keep reading »

Lady Gaga Inspires Fashionista At Vogue Italia

Christina Aguilera isn’t the only one being inspired by Lady Gaga‘s platinum blunt cut bangs, and hyper sexy looks. The chicest magazine to end all chic magazines, Vogue Italia, is taking a page or two from her style book too. For their June issue, they’ve transformed high fashion model Sessilee Lopez into a Gaga-ette. The multi-page spread features Lopez complete with platinum blond hair, and tight, short, blingy looks. I’m loving what I´m seeing, but dressing Lopez in Swarovsky studded panties and a bustier, holding a tea cup, would have really driven the point home. Yes? Keep reading »

American Apparel’s Most Skanktastic Looks

Sometimes we wonder if American Apparel isn’t just pulling our chain with each increasingly slutty product they put out. Some of these things seem like they were made solely to stir up controversy rather than for a profit. If that’s the case, Dov gets points for marketing smarts (which doesn’t effect his overall loss of points for being a total douchenozzle). Here, four AA items that outweigh the rest in terms of skankiness… Keep reading »

“Tan The Man” Makes A Burning Impression

Looking at this work of “art” by Janine Rewell is painful. Using the body as a canvas, Rewell created “Tan the Man,” by strategically placing customized vinyl stickers on the poor dude, and banishing him to the solarium until he was burned to a crisp. An interesting reminder that skin is a photosensitive material, but also a reminder that skin is a sensitive material. Yet, I don’t think Rewell has a political agenda here, and was interested more in the graphic concept. [Janinerewell.com] Keep reading »

The Men Folk Don’t Like the Doodle Bra, But I Do

I’ve been a little obsessed with the Doodle Bra since we did a post about it way back in March. And now, finally, mine arrived at the office a couple days ago after weeks of waiting. Oh, the intricate fantasies I had about all the ways my life would improve when the color-and-wash bra arrived and we became inseparable. Keep reading »

Answer Your Mobile Phone, Your Dress Is Blinking

Maria Sharapova was on hand to unveil a prototype of a dress that lights up when the wearer’s cell phone or smartphone rings. The dress was designed by British fashion student Georgie Davies for a school project and partnership with Sony Ericsson aimed at incorporating new technology into fashion. Davies said the dress was designed to connect to the wearer’s phone via Bluetooth technology. “When you’re in a pub or a bar, you can never, ever hear your phone,” Davies told Reuters. The good thing is this dress is actually wearable and not at all overly Sci-Fi-looking. The dress is knee-length, white, short-sleeved, and is embellished along one side with translucent white scales (think square paillettes) that move and light up. See more photos here. I’d wear it. Would you? Keep reading »
