It ain’t no thang to spot Lady Gaga wearing crazy headgear or anything, but the one she wore at the 30th Anniversary Gala of MOCA (Museum of Contemporary Art) was notable for being designed by none other than uber-architect Frank Gehry. Now that’s an interesting fashion collaboration. [L.A., 11/14/09] Keep reading »
Sure, her husband Keith Urban is stoked, but how much cleavage is too much, even when a red carpet is involved? Nicole Kidman looked stunning at the CMAs, of course, but those poor girls look like they’re struggling for survival. [Nashville, 11/11/09] Keep reading »
We don’t mean to sound harsh here, but it’s probably wise for Kristen Stewart to buckle down and get a stylist, or at least replace the one she’s presently working with, if she has one. She’s been looking a bit off at “New Moon” events all week, but when it comes to this getup, we can remain silent no more. Look closely at this very odd dress and notice the ill fit, unflattering silhouette and see-through panels that reveal her panty line and side boobs. What in the hell is going on here? Yes, the sheer trend is, like, a thing now, but it’s definitely one of those proceed-with-caution trends. We’re not even sure The Fashion Peacekeepers could find anything positive to say about this frock. It’s just puzzling. Keep reading »
Check out Rachel Bilson. She’s looking seriously put-together in her majah heels, chic black pants, fab Phillip Lim bag and pretty blow-out. (And her friend is looking adorable, too!) Where’s the party or red carpet, you ask? There isn’t one — she’s headed out for a day of shopping … looking so on top of her sartorial game. There isn’t a pair of tattered, L.A. cool jeans in sight! This reminds me of when I used to spend an entire Saturday shopping. Before hitting up, say, Barneys or Bergdorf’s to browse the racks, I’d spend a ridiculously absurd and laughable amount of time planning what I was going to wear. (Yep, all just to go shopping.) I had to look very put-together, but not like I was trying too hard. And while you may find this a colossal waste of time, I gotta point out that dressing up before shopping in fancy-pants stores really did get me better customer service from the sales floor staff (sad, but true!) and I just felt better about myself, even if I was just there to find a new pair of, say, gloves or something small. Do you ever do the same thing—seriously think long and hard about what to wear for a day of hitting the stores? Or can you just not be bothered? Keep reading »
What’s more stimulating than ogling celeb photos? Snaps of the rich and famous before they were! Modelinia has posted a few from Heidi Klum’s album and now we know she is not a natural blonde and, like so many of us plebeians, suffered major fashion missteps back in the day, such as tucking a pastel, geometric-patterned shirt into a pair of yellow sweatpants. (Been there, girl!) Also, and no judgment here, whatsoever, is that a trailer park? Didn’t even know they had those in Germany. A few more, after the jump! Keep reading »
Hey, we all have our off-days, which may be the only explanation for this NY Times Style section piece about how women are like, really, really into “Gossip Girl” star Blake Lively‘s hair.
“In the 1990s, there was the ‘Rachel,’ named after Jennifer Aniston’s character on the TV show ‘Friends.’ Before the Rachel it was the ‘Farrah’ — the flipped out, flouncy hairstyle worn by Farrah Fawcett. Now, it’s Ms. Lively … whose tresses are coveted: extra long, ultra-shiny blond with a mussed-up tussle frolicking through the ends.”
Really? That’s quite a statement, guys. Here’s another quote on the subject for you, from our own Lily Q: “People need to calm down.” After all, there’s nothing more to the look than really long, slightly wavy, unbrushed hair, and I’m not jealous because that’s what I’ve got and most days it goes in a bun. Their proof that women are just dying to copy this hairstyle? Well, there’s the hard cold fact that a Google search of “Blake Lively Hair” produces 713,000 results (at their press time). Wow! At our press time “Angelina Jolie Hair” was at 5,160,000, Jennifer Aniston at 2,290,000 and Blake Lively’s own costar Leighton Meester beat her at 839,000. Just sayin’. The other “evidence” of this phenomenon is that Blake HERSELF admits that stylish women like “Vogue staffers” routinely approach her and compliment her hair. Honey, we know Vogue staffers, and that definitely doesn’t sound like any of them, unless they were being facetious and mocking you behind your back. Of course, the Style section could have just run an article about how women will always want princessy blond hair. That might have made more sense, no? [NY Times] Keep reading »
Missed the Glamour Women Of The Year Awards
? Yeah, us too. You know who did
manage to show up? Bill Clinton, that’s who. Also, Stella McCartney gives some solid fashion advice, but breaks her own rules. [Examiner

Whoa, is Rachel Bilson indulging in some self-love in her shoot for Flaunt magazine’s November issue? To be frank, we would too, if we looked that hot.
This spread shows a side of the star that’s about as far from her sweet “O.C.”-girl personality as possible. We’re loving every shot, from a sultry pose in frilly lingerie to an adventurous Bilson in a leotard with a Catwoman vibe. Overall, not the most wearable styles (then again, what fashion magazine cares about that?), but an outfit with some zippered, rocker-esque pants does give us some inspiration. Check out some more images after the jump! [Fashion Indie] Keep reading »
Dang, the naked celebrities sure are coming out of the woodwork today, heh. Nineteen-year-old “Twilight” (heard of it?) star Christian Serratos poses nude for a new PETA ad, just in time for the “New Moon” opening next week. Um, yeah. [PETA] Keep reading »
You have to wonder what the hell is going through a celeb’s (and her stylist’s) mind when she’s looking to settle on an outfit for the red carpet and someone gets the bright idea to wear a white shirt, buttoned below the rib cage, and no bra. Because in that situation, you’re kind of just inviting a wardrobe malfunction. [NYC, 11/10/09] Keep reading »
