Good Job, Levi’s: An Ad Campaign That Doesn’t Make Me Wanna Scream

I’m channeling my inner Stephen Colbert to offer a “tip of the hat” to Levi’s for advertisements that don’t make us wanna scream and pull our hair out. Walking to work this morning, I saw two print ads from their summer campaign that I just love. One depicts a man and a small child, presumably a father and son, and reads, “Everybody’s work is equally important.” The other depicts an older man standing with a young woman and a young man, with the same tag line. Wow, I thought. How cool that a clothing company would make such a progressive statement about gender? Keep reading »

Do Women Actually Wear “Sexy Nurse” Outfits?

Luxury lingerie designer Kiki De Montparnasse is having a sale and panties are only $85 now, ladies! (Sarcasm.) One Kiki item particularly puzzles me, not because it’s discounted, but because it exists at all: Kiki’s “Night Nurse” costume. Do people actually wear those get-ups for sexy bedtime role-playing?

Girl Talk: I Went To Brazil And I’m Never Coming Back

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.

Latest Round Of Diesel Ads As Stupid As Advertised

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?

A Cute Pochette For The Bare Necessities

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.

Betsey Johnson Brings The Noise To “Project Runway”

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 »
