Style Buzz: Karl Lagerfeld’s Barbie Dolls

  • DAMN, why do I not live in France?!?! Karl Lagerfeld designed fancy little outfits for some Barbie dolls and they’re are on display at the Colette shop in Paris from March 9-28. Pics (alongside a real-life “Ken” model) above. [Collete]
  • And in more Barbie news: a lawmaker in West Virgina is trying to outlaw the Little Miss Wackadoo Body Image with the Barbie Ban Bill. Okay, I’m the first person to agree giving little kids a blonde, big-boobed, long-legged and smiling doll sends a bad message. But maybe we should put pressure on Mattel to create a doll which reflects an actual human’s body first. [MSNBC]
  • “I don’t drink, but I smell like I do,” says transsexual performance artist, Amanda Lepore, about her new $950 fragrance, Amanda, which includes a note of Cristal champagne. [New York Times]
  • We’ll never get sick of models falling! [Refinery 29]

Fitness For The Coquette In You

Pole dance, chair dance, and striptease are fun ways to workout, but let’s be real, you aren’t going to use these moves to entice your guy no matter what Flirty Girl Fitness promises. I can just see my BF bursting into hysterics as I try to do the Cat Crawl Push-up or Goddess Rising ab routine while wearing lingerie. Instead, these fitness DVDs would go well with your girlfriends and some cocktails for a night of laughs and sex talk. And when it’s time to get your guy excited just be yourself and save the aerobics, spinning and twirling for a professional.

1. “Intermediate Pole” DVD in the Flirty Girl Fitness Pole Kit
2. “Just Teasing” DVD in the Flirty Girl Fitness Pole Kit
3. “Booty Beat” DVD in the Flirty Girl Preview Program
4. “Chair Dance” DVD in the Flirty Girl Deluxe DVD Kit Keep reading »

WTF?!: Target Misses With Alexander McQueen

In the past, Target has worked women into a frenzy by having high-end designers make affordable fashions for us po’, fat, regular folk. Isaac Mizrahi made Target chic with his classic cuts; Rogan Gregory created an uproar with his animal print fabulousness; Luella Bartletley made us want to wear puffed up party dresses again; and we really got into Paul & Joe’s cute, feminine prints. But that was then, and this Alexander McQueen collection is now! I’d rather gaze lovingly at his designs, day dreaming of the day when I can afford a pair of his peep-toe pumps, than have this crap cluttering my closet. Keep reading »

Forever 21 Jumps on Plus-Sized Bandwagon

It would seem that American body image desires are shifting — an NYU study found that in a depressed economy, men go for meatier women, while super-curvy singer Beth Ditto recently made an impression with her nude Love cover and is planning a plus-size clothing line. And she’s not alone — now megachain Forever 21 is tapping into the plus-sized market with a new clothing line set to debut in May called Faith 21. The collection is wisely aimed at targeting the oft-ignored “average” woman, who you might be surprised to find is a size 14. The Faith 21 fashions will be similar to Forever’s mix of standard runway knockoffs and hoochie club wear, but available in XL, 1X, and 2X sizes. Hmm, wonder if the line is called “Faith” 21 because of the company’s strong belief in Christianity…does Jesus believe bigger is better? [LA Times] Keep reading »

Style Buzz: “Top Model” Returns Tonight!

  • Tyra Banks is making a “comeback” of sorts: “America’s Next Top Model,” cycle 12, is back on the air tonight. I wonder what over-the-top schtick Ty-Ty will go for this year? [The CW]
  • He’s not MY choice for sexiest royal, but whatever…”Esquire” voted Prince Charles, second in line to England’s throne, as one of their “Best Dressed Men” in their April issue. [Daily Mail]
  • Jennifer Lopez borrowed $50K worth of bling from Swiss billionaire/diamond aficianado Robert Mouawad for an event at Barney’s…and liked the diamond jewelry so much she kept it. No hard feelings from the billionaire, though.
  • Somewhat inexplicably, Paris Hilton will be the first recipient of The Fragrance Foundation’s “Celebrity of the Year” award in May. You know, we actually have a bottle of her Fairy Dust perfume and just haven’t gotten around to trying it yet…. [Now Smell This]

New Bra Dryer Preserves Your Lingerie

Laundering your lingerie can really get your panties in a twist, especially when they get ruined in the wash. The new Bra Dryer claims to take care of this by individually drying bras without messing with the fabric or wiring. The device uses infrared heat to evaporate water and a boob-shaped frame so that your underthings keep their form. There are different settings for every possible kind of brassiere (padded, soft cup, silk, etc.) and accommodation for a range of cup sizes. The downside—you can only dry one garment at a time, which is sure to wear on your patience as much as conventional drying does on your bras. Check out another image, after the jump!

Stop Staring At Me With Your Giant Eyeball Head

Here’s looking at you, kid. This model wasn’t crying when she paraded down the runway during Milan Fashion Week wearing this surrealist-psycho ensemble designed by Madrid’s Agatha Ruiz de la Prada — or, heck, was she? It’s impossible to tell with that giant eyeball she’s wearing on her head. Who knew cyclopses were the new black? And if that skirt’s not sexual, I don’t know what it is. Or, you know, maybe that’s just me. Of course, this frock wasn’t the only crazy creation the Spanish designer concocted for her Fall/Winter 2009 line. There’s the baguette hat, the trapped-in-a-birdcage exoskeleton, Rainbow Brite Chewbacca, and, I don’t know, this chick just looks like a hedge. [China Daily] Keep reading »
