Christian Siriano, last season’s “fierce” winner of Project Runway, is everywhere these days. He’s designed prom dresses for avatars and small collections for Puma, and he’s gearing up to show at New York Fashion week come September. Yesterday, his nine-piece collection for Bluefly, which was part of the PR prize package, went up on the site. For some reason, you can’t buy any of his clothes yet — either that, or they sold out in a day. (They all have a note that says “We’re sorry, this item is not available” next to them.) But as much as I love Christian and all of his hot tranny mess-iness, I don’t think I’d spend almost $400 on this jacket. More photos after the jump… [NY Times, Bluefly] Keep reading »
As if I haven’t said it enough, I heart Mad Men and am on the edge of my seat for this Sunday’s season two premiere. I especially love foxy redheaded Queen Bee of the secretaries, Joan Holloway. Her approach to getting ahead at work may not be ours (but then again, we don’t have to contend with 1960′s sexism!), but her style is hot. Embracing her womanly curves, the character always looks chic and well put together, and getting the look yourself, while staying modern, is actually pretty easy. Check out three options we put together, based on Joan’s fashion from last season, after the jump. Keep reading »
Now and Then is one of those classic girls-coming-of-age movies. Most of the action takes place in the 1970s, so actresses Christina Ricci, Thora Birch, Gaby Hoffmann, and Ashleigh Aston Moore got to wear some pretty sweet clothes. (I hope I’m not the only one to think cut-off jean shorts, plaid shirts, and the most basic sneakers ever are awesome.) Exchange your usual flip-flops for canvas sneaks, and channel your favorite of the four girls — I’m a Samantha (Gaby Hoffmann). Keep reading »
Look, we know they are expensive. Think of these as an ULTIMATE crave, one of those completely impractical but totally drool-inspiring items that you would buy if you were Bill Gates, only a fashionable version. But even if you can’t afford these boots (we can’t), a lesson can be learned from them and that is that gray and hot pink are one of those color/neutral combinations created perfectly by the heavens. If you’ve never paired them, PLEASE DO. [$725, Botkier] Keep reading »
Our usual “Hot Outta The Oven” chef, Teri Tsang Barrett, is on vacay this week, so our lovely intern Annika stepped up with this recipe for a take on a Greek salad. Clearly this one should not be hot outta the oven.
Since, the Food and Drug Administration announced last week that tomatoes are safe to eat again, I thought this recipe for a tomato salad with feta and cucumbers sounded refreshing on a hot summer evening. Tomatoes contain powerful antioxidants, like vitamin C, vitamin E, beta carotene and lycopene. This salad is not only healthy, but would be perfect for a picnic date, just add the Sangria or beverage of choice. Keep reading »
While watching Project Runway‘s season premiere and the promo videos for tonight’s episode, we noticed that some of the contestants (and Heidi) have awesome personal style. Others, on the other hand, have questionable style. Now, this doesn’t mean the clothes they design are awful, but I think it does say something about a designer when he sports a rattail. After the jump, we judge Project Runway‘s style… Keep reading »
Hair colorist to the stars, Rita Hazan, dishes out 10 rules for those lookin’ to go red.
1. Never pick a color that looks or sounds fake, like “Cherry Bomb.” Pick colors that are soft and natural.
2. Make sure you change your makeup; going red means making the necessary adjustments to your makeup!
3. As a redhead, it is also important to wear clothes that compliment your hair color. Fiery hair requires less details on clothing, you’re already making a bold statement with that color!
4. In the Fall and Winter, I suggest taking your red to a deeper, richer shade. Keep reading »
There’s no denying that the best part of a cupcake is the frosting, and now that the whole cupcake craze is dying down, a handful of bakeries are offering up the best of this treat in small shot-sized cups. Frosting shots have been billed by College Candy as the delicious answer to a regular shot, but without the hangover. I, however, don’t think anything can compare to good, old-fashioned tequila.

Granny panties are so hot now for young babes. And unlike their tinier counterparts — bikinis, thongs, and tangas — big ol’ briefs will cover your back instead of riding up it. Styles like boy shorts let us shake our booty freely and bend over without getting a wedgie, upsides everyone can get behind. Since we’re too sexy for dental floss undies, here are some full-on Frisky picks, after the jump… Keep reading »
Baking is fun, but you have to be precise. The slightest discrepancy in the amount of baking soda, and you could have an exploding angel food cake.
