Happy Bastille Day: 15 Items You Need To Dress Like A French Fashion Icon

Happy Bastille Day, aka French National Day, aka a day in which I do two things with even more gusto than usual — eat cheese and covet the effortless French style of such icons as Francoise Hardy, Clemence Poesy and Jean Seberg. If capturing that cool French way of dressing is your M.O., here are the 15 French fashion icon-approved items you need in order to do just that.

Beauty Test Drive: Marc Jacobs Neutral Nail Polish

Beauty Test Drive Marc Jacobs Neutral Nail Polish

The neutral nail color trend, AKA mannequin hands, is returning this fall. Marc Jacobs’ Enamored Hi-Shine Lacquer in 9 to 5 is part of Marc’s exclusive runway nail polish collection and promises opaque coverage and high shine. Last weekend, I attended a wedding and didn’t want my nail polish to compete with my brightly-colored, graphic-patterned dress, so I opted to Beauty Test Drive this sophisticated shade. Let’s see how it turned out… Keep reading »

Style Stealer: Miranda Kerr Is So Groovy

Style Stealer: Miranda Kerr

Miranda Kerr is serving up some Jane Birkin realness in this denim-on-denim ensemble and I am loving it. The flared leg on those white jeans makes her look even taller, like she’s walking on stilts (the platform shoes she’s wearing probably help). Perhaps it’s time to retire the skinny jeans… Keep reading »

Topshop’s Yellowface Necklaces Are Racist Whether They’re “Vintage-Style” Or Not

Topshop's Yellowface Necklaces Are Racist Whether They're "Vintage-Style" Or Not

When a Topshop customer in the UK came across this necklace while shopping at the chain store, she complained to a customer sales representative and was told that the necklace was “acceptable, because it was vintage style” and therefore “not racist.” The necklace depicts an early 19th century stereotype of East Asians — as Refinery 29 explains, “The charms bear an uncanny resemblance to the caricatures in anti-Chinese propaganda cartoons of the 1880s, when the Chinese Exclusion Act and all its institutionalized, dehumanizing policies were in full effect.” Is that what the clerk meant by “vintage”? The stereotype has always been racist — it didn’t become racist when we decided to acknowledge it as such — and it’s racist now. What’s next, Mammy hair fascinators? Ugh.

Frisky Eats: 9 Mouth-Watering Watermelon Recipes

I have a bit of a reputation for making watermelon basil margaritas and drinking them right out of the melon itself. Watermelon is hands down the most refreshing fruit around. It pairs well with sweet, tart, salty, and spicy flavors. If you haven’t tried watermelon with sour lime, spicy chilli powder, or salty feta, you are missing out.

Beauty Test Drive: Yes To Coconut Naturally Smooth Lip Balm & Cooling Lip Oil

Beauty Test Drive: Yes To Coconut Lip Balm And Cooling Oil

I loooove the smell of coconuts. Just a whiff takes me back to the beach where sunscreen and pina coladas are plentiful. So when I heard that Yes To launched a line of Yes To Coconut products, I couldn’t wait to try their lip balm and lip oil that would (hopefully) leave me tasting coconut flavors all the live long day.

Must Haves: 12 Simple Yet Sexy Shirtdresses

I have always found shirtdresses to be unexpectedly sexy, reminiscent of how a woman looks when she wears her man’s button-down to bed. There is something to be said for a full-coverage dress that could rip right open.  Plus, shirtdresses are super versatile — wear them now with strappy sandals and later with tights and booties.

Karl Lagerfeld’s Cat Choupette Is Getting Her Own Book & Makeup Line

choupette 071114

Choupette, the fluffy, gorgeous princess kept by Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld, is getting her own coffee table book and a makeup line. And why shouldn’t she? There are more than enough photos of Choupette to fill the 128-page Choupette: The Private Life Of A High-Flying Fashion Cat, which will include advice from her personal vet and her “favorite maid” — one of two, d’accord. We’ll have to wait until September 15 for her (ghostwriter’s) take on beauty, healthcare, fashion tips, “secret loves and pet hates.” And then we have to wait until the holidays, when the makeup brand Shu Uemura will debut a “Shupette” makeup line under their Shupette by Karl Lagerfeld for Shu Uemura label. Daddy Lagerfeld has, of course, photographed Choupette for the campaign. All we know to expect are furry false eyelashes and perhaps some blue eyeshadow — blue being the color of lovely Choupette’s eyes. This might just be the first ever major fashion campaign fronted by someone’s pet … although considering she has already modeled for V alongside Laetitia Casta, Choupette is not just any feline.
