Brace Yourselves: Clothing Prices Will Apparently Go Up Soon

See those two women in the photo who are shopping and all smiley and happy? Now, close your eyes and remember this image, seal it to your memories, children. Because soon, the days of shopping sprees and enjoying mall trips will be long gone. OK, so we exaggerate a bit (we hope!), but you should be warned that clothing prices will probably increase. According to Women’s Wear Daily, many big retailers (the North Face, Seven for All Mankind, to name a few) are thinking about upping price points both because of inflation and rising costs of cotton and manufacturing.

Natalie Portman, Prima Ballerina In A Rodarte Tutu

Rodarte’s Mulleavy sisters have been involved in some unfriendly press lately over their MAC cosmetics oops, but here’s something nice to offset the bad—a sneak peek at the Rodarte-designed tutus that Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis get to wear in the upcoming flick “Black Swan.” In a nutshell, the movie is a psychological thriller about two ballerinas who get involved in a weird and dark competitive relationship. Can’t tell too much else from this photo, but we’ll be interested to see how Rodarte re-imagines the classic ballet. The movie hits the Venice Film Festival September 1. [Elle] Keep reading »

The time has come to sadly admit it: “Gossip Girl” has jumped the shark. We know, we know. It had so much potential back in the days when uhh-mazing people like Anna Sui were designing themed collections for Target and headbands were cute again.

Are Expensive Sunglasses Worth It?

Apparently not, says one Fashionista writer who remarks that her cheap-o H&M sunglasses offer full UV protection, whereas many of the designer brands you might drop a couple hundred on offer nothing in the way of protection. That’s something else to add to the list of expensive sunglasses caveats. Not to mention that sunglasses are among the most easily lost and broken items in your fashion arsenal. On the other hand, sunglasses can be seen as “power pieces,” and how awesome would it be to own a pair of boss vintage Dior sunnies? (Answer: very awesome.)

What about you—do you favor cheapies over pricier lenses? How much can you spend on sunglasses before the purchase becomes ridiculous? [Fashionista] Keep reading »

Has Willow Smith Started A Painted Ear Trend?

Willow Smith hit up her brother Jayden’s “Karate Kid” premiere with one outer ear painted a pewter color. She inherited her father Will Smith’s ears, but instead of rushing to pin them back or covering them with a lock of hair, Willow has decided to accentuate her ear with paint. As someone with an ear tattoo, I like the idea of decorating ears in non-traditional ways. [7/25/10] Keep reading »
