International crisis alert! Supermodel and all-around babe Natalia Vodianova dared to show up at the Harper’s Bazaar Women of the Year ceremony night before last with legs that had not been shaved. I know! You can hardly believe it either. The Daily Mail dedicated an entire article to this body hair situation (as did we, apparently), and, get this, Vodianova had the nerve to flaunt her fur by pulling up her skirt for the photographers. Not only that! Coco Perez has previously documented sightings of the model’s thigh hair. As StyleList points out, she’s a mother of three, so maybe she didn’t have time to get out the razor. Check out the hair concern here, if you so desire. [StyleList] Keep reading »
When I saw the first few seconds of Prada’s latest fashion film, I thought, Hm, they’ve animated a runway show. How dull. But what the company is calling a “MotionBook,” rather than a “Look Book,” is actually quite a bit more than that: a startling, beautiful, surreal blending of pieces from the fall/winter 2010 line overlayed with a mix of animation twists. Grazia says of the James Lima-directed short, “We love the fashion-illustration-come-to-life feel of it, and the raw, almost comic book treatment of the images,” and so do we. Now if only we could get real life to look like that. [Grazia] Keep reading »
This adorable mini-collage would look amazing framed and hung up in a glassed-walled sun room, surrounded by potted ferns and gilded curiosities from around the world. Luckily for me (since I don’t have a glass-walled sun room or a fern), it would also look awesome tacked onto the inspiration wall above my desk, surrounded by black and white photo booth strips and my treasured Spice Girls concert tickets.
And that, my friends, proves what a versatile little piece of art this is. [$7, Etsy] Keep reading »
Watermelon wouldn’t be our first choice for an eau de parfum. Who shops for fragrances thinking, “Hey, I’d really like to smell like a watermelon today?” To be more accurate, the official scents in Kate Spade‘s new eau de parfum Twirl are “pink watermelon, blackberry and red current with additional notes of orange blossom, star jasmine, sweet magnolia, and French macaron.” I would describe Twirl as “chic fruity”: you’ll smell like a fancy lady who shops at Kate Spade, but one with a whimsical and girly side.

So there was a little something last night called the World Series in which the San Francisco Giants beat the Texas Rangers (just in case you hadn’t heard). Did you notice any of the players wearing jewelry? (Or as we like to call male accessories: “mewelry.”) Turns out, it’s quite common for baseball players to wear necklaces, not so much as good luck charms or fashion statements, but to help their game. The rope-like strands contain magnets and aqua titanium, which supposedly “stabilize your electric current inside the body,” allowing you to “enhance your performance” by increasing flexibility and balance, or treating arthritis if you have it. There’s little scientific evidence to back up these claims, but still some big-hitting baseball stars swear by them. Not sure it’s a trend we would hop on for fashion or therapy … but we suppose it’s good to know. [Fox News, MLB Shop] Keep reading »
