“Do you think 50 years ago in America they would have been considered icons of beauty?” Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Russell Kridell asked this question at a recent conference, pointing to photos of Beyonce, Jennifer Lopez and Lucy Liu. While a seminar exploring surgical techniques deep in the heart of Texas hardly sounds like a font of female empowerment, one fascinating and pertinent finding emerged: Thanks to the international embrace of multicultural beauty icons, our standards of what is considered the aesthetic ideal is evolving dramatically.
This isn’t a completely new concept. A 2006 paper by evolutionary theorist Oliver Curry “projected that by the year 3000, human beings will interbreed to become a single race of coffee-colored beings with a genetic upper class of tall, slim folks with even features.” Like Beyonce, with some extra inches added to her petite frame.

Rarely lauded for their subtlety, Lady Gaga and Beyonce went even more balls out than usual with the product placement in their recently released “Telephone” music video. First up, there’s the fact that the song itself (much like its predecessor, “Videophone”) is just waiting to be licensed for commercial use by a cell phone company. But lest they should be accused of selling out to cell phones entirely, entertainment’s strangest lady duo produced an out-of-control video to accompany the
jingle song, too. All we can say is we hope major money went Gaga and B’s way, because their almost 10-minute video was like an extended commercial for everything from dating sites to Polaroid to Verizon to Miracle Whip. Check out the most blatant placements, after the jump. [BlackBook] Keep reading »
OK, admit it. You’ve been watching and re-watching Lady Gaga and Beyonce’s new “Telephone” video all morning. I won’t judge. In fact, I’ll admit that I’ve seen it more than a few times already — those cigarette sunglasses! That chain outfit! The black and white look! Swoon. But now, take a pause from refreshing the YouTube link as you stream the music video on repeat to check out the fashion credits for each awe-inspiring look. Of course, there’s a fair amount of Haus of Gaga designs, including the aforementioned sunglasses, her studded lingerie, and the leopard outfit, but fellow designers get their moment in the Gaga spotlight as well.

If you thought Lady Gaga
‘s collab for “Video Phone” was hot, just wait til you see them put a ring on this “Telephone”! It’s a big budget bonanza with the truck from “Kill Bill,” some stylin’ female prison uniforms, hot girl-on-girl action, and pancakes. Mmm, this vid is tasty. Keep reading »
Beyonce and Alicia Keys looked amazing in the photos released from the “Put It In a Love Song” video shoot. They had beautifully bronzed skin and energy that embodied the Rio de Janeiro atmosphere. But what really had me hyperventilating were the clothes. Never have I seen so many patterns combined into one cohesive look, forget garments. But that’s exactly what American designer Maya Lake of Boxing Kitten accomplished. Her collection, which includes dresses, jumpers, and skirts, has a uniquely Afro-centric vibe with sexy, curve-hugging tailoring. Lake describes her separates and dresses as “ethnic rockabilly.” Solange, Fergie, and Erykah Badu are also fans of Boxing Kitten. Prices range from $69 to $259, which isn’t bad for items you won’t see on everyone walking down the street. [Haute] Keep reading »
