Yes, Chanel No. 5 May Attract Men … With Oedipal Complexes

Scent is certainly a powerful element in generating attraction from the opposite sex, but when a new study came out this week pointing to Chanel No. 5 as the perfume most likely to seduce a man, we were doubtful. The idea that you could bag a guy with a specific perfume seems far-fetched as it… More »


Can Perfume Help You Find True Love (Or Just Get Laid)?

V Magazine Puts “Coco In Motion”

While Chanel has traditionally been one of those “serious” fashion houses, it seems like the label has been experiencing a playful re-branding thanks to those on the inside (see Karl Lagerfeld’s campy Spring/Summer 2010 runway show) and those on the outside who have taken a more lighthearted approach to the fashions.

It’s curious for several reasons: The paper is… More »


Give Us This Day Our Daily Bread, And Make Sure It’s Fresh From Chanel

There’s a new online fashion magazine out there called Flamboyant, and its debut issue presents this “artistic” spread of designer-inspired loaves of bread. In the mix are carb-loaded replicas modeled after brands like Hermès, Valentino, and Vivienne Westwood. Normally, we squeal girlishly (um, you know, on the inside) at these types of conceptual fashion/food photographs. More »


Would You Wear These High-Heeled Clogs?

Depending on when you were born, you may remember when clogs, those wooden-soled shoes originally worn by fair-skinned milkmaids in Holland, were resurrected as favorable footwear for the fashion-forward in the ’70s and then again in the early ’90s.

Forget Jade Nail Polish, It’s All About Gray

Can Temporary Tattoos Be Elegant?

In fashion, it’s all about the details — from the choice of buttons to the hemline — and designer Karl Lagerfeld is a master of the little things.
