Quotable: Stella McCartney Is Slightly Embarrassed By Her Job

“I used to get embarrassed about the fact I liked fashion. I still get a bit cringy. I’d sit at dinner parties and people would say to me, ‘So what do you do?’ and I’d be like, oh design! When I fill passport forms I put ‘design.’ I don’t say fashion. But don’t get me wrong, I love my job!”

Stella McCartney knows how those who live, breathe, and eat fashion can feel when talking about their profession to, say, a diplomat, or in my case, a journalism professor. [Fashionista] Keep reading »

Model Tanning FAIL

At first, we kind of thought that these three lovelies were dead. Then we looked more closely at the clothes and realized that there was nary a sign of struggle or dragging in sight. All we can really take from this bizarre Marc Jacobs fall ’10 ad campaign is that they don’t realize that tanning doesn’t work when you wear a winter jacket. Silly models.

Your Bloody Silver Necklace

Thanks to “True Blood,” “Twilight,” and a host of other vampire-themed TV shows, movies and books, there’s not a girl out there (OK, there are maybe a few) who doesn’t dream of having a romantic liaison with a vampire. Jewelry designers have been inspired by blood-suckers as well. Previously, we’ve featured a vampire bite necklace, and then there’s this dripping blood necklace. Now, designer Carmen Zambrano has taken the trend one step further with this “Bloody Jewelry” necklace in silver. It’s spooky but chic, goth but discreet. Your vampire lover will love it.

What Should Betsey Johnson’s Plaza Hotel Eloise Suite Look Like?

It was announced last September that fashion designer Betsey Johnson would be designing an Eloise-themed suite for The Plaza Hotel in New York City. Those of you who were obsessed with Eloise to the extent that we were as kids may or may not have peed your pants in excitement at the news. Now, finally, the unveiling of the room is just a few days away. On July 29, we’ll all see what Johnson has done with the room and probably wish we were 8 years old all over again. (Take a look at Johnson’s apartment at left and you’ll know why we’re so jealous of grade schoolers.) We’re hoping that the room involves a healthy amount of artsy crayon on the walls and a cage for Skipperdee the turtle. What does your dream Eloise room look like? [Fashion Foie Gras] Keep reading »

White Queen Wins In Chess-Inspired Skin Whitening Ad

Wow, SkinWhite. Symbolism much? Latino pop culture blog Guanabee noticed this ad for SkinWhite skin lightening cream which conveys a message about race via black and white chess pieces: “See, the white queen is reigning over all the black pieces. That’s because the black king took her as his queen. Because she’s white. Get it?”

It’s unknown if this ad is “spec work” or if it actually ran anywhere. But the fact that an ad for a product that helps darker-skinned people bleach their skin — itself disconcerting, as we recently discussed regarding Vaseline’s skin lightening app on Facebook — thought to depict “white wins over black” as a concept is troubling enough.

Flying Pasties Protect Your Privates From Airport Security

Flying somewhere this weekend? Don’t forget your pasties! Many airports are now using full-body scanners which give bored airport security officers a lot to look at, including hidden weapons and drugs — and your naughty bits. That’s why a company called Flying Pasties is selling specially designed orange stickers for your nipples and pubic area, so that security can still do their job without being able to deduce the size of your areola or your preferred pubic hair shape. I’ve yet to fly through one of the airports with these fancy full-body scanners, but I’m not modest and would never bother to put on special pasties so that a pervy security officer couldn’t get a glimpse of my strawberry kisses. Besides, maybe showing a little nip will decrease the chance of having my lotion confiscated. [Flying Pasties via Jaunted] Keep reading »
