OK, admit it. You stayed up all night watching and re-watching Lady Gaga and Beyonce’s new Telephone video. I won’t judge. In fact I’ll admit I’ve seen it more than a few times already – those cigarette sunglasses! Her chain outfit! The custom made Jean-Charles de Castelbajac black and white outfit! Swoon. Take a pause from YouTube as you stream the music video on repeat to check out the credits for each Keep reading »
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 »
Apparently, Lady Gaga and Beyonce are working on another collaboration, and these are some of the latest stills that have been released from the set of their upcoming video for “Telephone.” Reportedly, the song is about “receiving endlessly irritating calls and text messages from an admirer while out trying to lose yourself on the dance floor.” Story of my life. Here, Lady Gaga wears a deconstructed phone on her head as a hat. Why? How the hell would I know? The woman is bonkers. Check out some more of her weirdo-styles from this sure-to-be-startling video after the proverbial jump. Keep reading »

Finally, a celebrity admits that lookin’ good ain’t easy. Beyonce complains, “I’m always in pain! My earrings are heavy, and my heels are hurting — they hurt all the time. But you know you have to sacrifice for beauty. You just get kind of numb after a while.”
Are you always in pain due to your fashion choices? Or maybe pain that you’ve gotten so used to, it actually feels normal? Difficult high heels, weird undergarments, tight clothes, weather-inappropriate accessories? What do you care about more—being a little bit uncomfortable to wear something you love or always being completely at ease? [Starpulse] Keep reading »

I have to say, one of my fondest memories of my last relationship is when the he would pick out music for us. We would start out just listening to it, and then, well….my favorites were Frank Sinatra, his Classical playlist, and then other random folk artists…I love feeling classy, and who doesn’t feel like a 40s starlet while they are making out to “The way you look tonight” or “Fly me to the moon”??!!
