Lately, we’ve been waxing philosophically, ahem, about pubic hair grooming and it’s time for me to throw in my two cents. About a week after Jessica wrote about her first bikini wax — after being the proud owner of a ’70s-style bush — I went in for my first wax, but unlike Jessica, I was committing myself to the full shebang.

In a way, Diesel’s “Be Stupid” ad campaign (you’re looking at one from the latest round here) is genius, because even if you say, “Wow, these ads are totally stupid,” the folks at Diesel can be like, “Yeah, that’s why it’s the ‘Be Stupid’ campaign.” Still, the ads are just dumb. They’re not cute or fun or frolicky, or whatever it was they were after. They’re boorish and weak and would probably bore even the most puerile frat boy. As usual, I’m left to wonder how much money, how many meetings, and how many ad men/women it took to come up with, “Ha-ha, let’s have a guy biting a girl’s butt and then it says, ‘You’ll eat better’!” Really, Diesel, can’t you do better?

When all you need is enough purse to hold some cash and lip gloss, leave your duffel bag-sized tote behind and pick up a pochette. (It’s like a clutch, but even tinier and, thus, more adorable.) Pochettes are our go-to toters for a night out, and this Marc by Marc Jacobs checkered one is our new favorite. You really can’t beat the classic color combo and the relative lack of logo-ing.
Fans of the ’90s, tulle, and “Sassy” magazine, get ready! Ebullient designer Betsey Johnson will be the guest judge on tonight’s episode of “Project Runway.” Tonight, the designers will be asked to make wearable items out of party store supplies (crepe paper bolero, anyone?).
It’s a tough challenge — apparently one designer ends up in the hospital tonight — and we’re wondering how Betsey’s quirkiness will mix with Michael Kors’ wit and Nina Garcia’s steely reserve. Betsey’s crazy style would have probably been “auf-ed” by Heidi Klum and the rest of the P-Run gang, so we’re expecting sparks to fly at the judging table. Keep reading »
The folks at Alexander McQueen are continuing the deceased designer’s legacy. One of the first new things to come out of the fashion house? A line of men’s underwear emblazoned with the signature McQueen skull print. (Apparently this collection will also have silk loungewear—classy.) But we wonder … what would Alexander McQueen have wanted as a fashion statement following his death? Is it kind of cheeky to put skulls and bones on boxers? (Bones, you know?) Then again, he might love the little joke.
What do you think of this look? Would you like your man to wear some skivvies like this? [Hint Mag] Keep reading »
You’d think if a brand pays who-knows-how-much for a celebrity to star in their ad campaign, they’d want that celebrity to be recognizable in the final product. That brings us to the new ads for Gucci’s latest fragrance, Guilty. Recognize the actress seen here? I sure didn’t; I had to look it up to identify her. Here are a few hints: she’s young, her fiance is scary, and she’s been nominated for a Golden Globe. Still can’t figure out who it is? Check out another image and find out after the jump.
