Crave: A Dapper American Apparel Bow Tie

This bow tie pays homage to the teddy bear we’ve had since we were 7, but if anyone asks, we’d just say that we’re taking fashion cues from Andre 3000 or Tucker Carlson. But really, how cute would a seersucker bow tie look on a Wall Street girly-girl outfit like a button down shirt, a pair of tight jeans and a hot blazer? [$19, American Apparel] Keep reading »

American Apparel’s Most Skanktastic Looks

Sometimes we wonder if American Apparel isn’t just pulling our chain with each increasingly slutty product they put out. Some of these things seem like they were made solely to stir up controversy rather than for a profit. If that’s the case, Dov gets points for marketing smarts (which doesn’t effect his overall loss of points for being a total douchenozzle). Here, four AA items that outweigh the rest in terms of skankiness… Keep reading »

Sex And Drugs At Cirque Du Soleil

Yes, I buy American Apparel clothing from time to time. No, I am not a fan of their ad campaigns—I refer to them as “hipster porn.” When I heard about their sleazebag CEO, Dov Charney, and his alleged sexual indiscretions with employees, I was even less motivated to spend $50 on assless tights. But I am a longtime fan of Cirque du Soleil and their amazing combo of acrobatics, dance, and performance. So I was kind of shocked when I heard about the new unauthorized, tell-all biography, called Guy Laliberté: The Fabulous Story of the Creator of the Cirque du Soleil about Cirque’s impresario. Apparently, he adds a whole new meaning to the term “circus freak.”‘ Could this clown be the next Dov Charney? [Independent] Keep reading »

Stop Trying to Make Scrunchies Happen, American Apparel

We’ve kept silent while Dov Charney has screwed around with fashion.

We put up with the pervy advertisements.

We put up with Charney masturbating in front of a Jane reporter.

We put up with his numerous sexual harassment lawsuits.

We put up with messing with our main mensch, Woody Allen.

But we’re not going to take it anymore—the scrunchies must be stopped. Keep reading »

American Apparel To Offer Butt-Baring Tights

American Apparel’s Coming Soon section shows products that will be sold by the retailer in the near future. Along with an oversized hair bow, a shiny vinyl weekend bag, and a nylon spandex micro-mesh long sleeve button-up, the store is planning to offer “sheer luxe cut-out pantyhose.” The name is misleading. It’s not like these tights have a fancy cut-out pattern in them. No, there isn’t anything covering the wearer’s ass. I guess American Apparel knows what its clientele wants?

Quickies!: Brooke Shields Shows Her Cougar Side In Sexy Photos

  • Brooke Shields dominates wayyy younger male model Chris Fawcett in a sexy shoot for Australia’s Kurv. The mag describes the pics as portraying an older woman “finding love” with a younger man. [Pop Eater] — Thumbs up for Brooke, although it seems to be sex, not love, that these two hotties are “finding.”
  • Woody Allen took home $5 million this morning after settling the lawsuit he filed against American Apparel for featuring him (without his permission) in their, um, scandalous ads. [Perez Hilton] — This conflict might have been resolved, but the damage of coupling Woody’s face and racy American Apparel ads is already done.
  • Married woman LeAnn Rimes was caught (yet again) cozying up to married man Eddie Cibrian, pics revealed. [US Magazine] — But don’t worry, hubby Dean, she’s still got her wedding ring on, so they must just be “friends.”

    American Apparel Goes On The Defensive In Woody Allen Suit

    Last year, Woody Allen filed a $10 million lawsuit against American Apparel for using a photo of him dressed as a Hasidic Jew from his rom-com “Annie Hall” without his permission. The image was put on billboards in Hollywood and New York, but according to the company, they were only up for one week. Allen says the ad falsely implied that he endorsed or sponsored American Apparel. The clothier apologized for using Allen’s image and offending his sensibilities. (American Apparel is known for featuring scantily clad female employees in its ads). Keep reading »

    Quickies!: Kelly Bensimon Is The Ambassador For Wool

  • Kelly Killoren Bensimon tells the new issue of Bazaar, “Honestly, if being inauthentic means graduating from Columbia University, writing three books, starting two magazines, bearing two children, being the ambassador for wool, running a marathon for charity — if that’s inauthentic? Tell me what authentic is.” [DListed] — Somebody, anybody, please, tell me what the f**k the ambassador for WOOL does!
  • Backing up my position on Seth Rogen’s date rape movie, “Observe and Report,” is this Friday Feminist F**k You. [Feministing]
  • American Apparel is launching a plus-size line called “Colossal Clothing” — but it’s only for men. [Salon] — I’m saving up my rage, putting it in a box, handing it over to Simcha, who will comment on this nonsense next week.

    Poll: Would You Wear Two-Toned Tights?

    Now that it’s getting colder, pants and tights are coming out of hibernation. The choice is cover your legs or freeze, really. Over on Refinery 29, there have been a bunch of two-toned leg spottings, including one girl wearing an awesome pair of jeans with one black leg and one white leg. The most readily available (and cheapest) products out there if you want to try two-toned legs are these American Apparel tights. We’re feeling the ’60s-mod look of the fluorescent yellow/coral pair, but we’d like to know whether you’d ever wear two-toned tights. Keep reading »

    Love It Or Leave It: Faux Leather Leggings

    Leggings are great for working out, lounging around, throwing on, or for pairing with an outfit that was a once cute dress but is now too short. The greatness of leggings, is not what I’m debating here. It’s what’s spawning from these tight favorites that has me worried. Mainly, what are these faux leather, almost plastic looking leggings that are popping up everywhere? I can’t decide if I love them or hate them. They’re definitely funky and a good trend for those completely bored of jeans (ahem, moi). American Apparel has gone so far as to make high-waisted and faux denim leggings. So time to weigh in ladies. Will you be shimmying into these tight creations? Love it or leave it? Keep reading »
