Taste The Nostalgia: 1994 X-Girl Fashion Show


Here’s a reminder of the days when indie fashion was fun, lighthearted, and embracing of all different body types. Remember the label X-Girl? (If it was before your time, it’s a definite must-know just to increase your cultural cred.) The line of sporty tees and A-line dresses was developed in the ’90s by rock goddess and Sonic Youth lead singer Kim Gordon and designer Daisy von Furth. The two wanted to challenge the fashion industry’s elite outlook and high prices. Daisy’s explanation of X-Girl sums up the way we wish more people would think about fashion these days, being that, “We’re used to shopping in thrift stores … so for us to pay $60 for something, that’s like the most we’re ever going to pay … unless my mother’s paying.” Check out this footage from a 1994 X-Girl fashion show, set in the streets of Soho. We bet you’ll also recognize some fun, familiar faces in there, too. [YouTube] Keep reading »

Creepy Jerkface Tries To Extort Cindy Crawford

It sure seems like extortion is the new black. Today’s target: Cindy Crawford and her family. No, no—don’t jump to any Letterman-like conclusions—Cindy didn’t do anything wrong at all. Over the summer, her nanny played a game of “cops and robbers” with her then 7-year-old daughter, Kaia, and took a photo of Kaia in a pair of shorts and a t-shirt, gagged and tied to a chair. The nanny had intended to tape the photo, along with a note that read, “the baby sitter went crazy and tied everyone up and they need your help!” to the front door as a joke. (Um, would this be funny? Not so much.) But instead, Edis Kayalar (above, right), a German fellow she had met at a bar a few months before, found the photo and stole Cindy’s phone number off the nanny’s cell phone. He called her and said that he wanted to return the photo because the fact that the girl was “in revealing clothing, bound to a chair and gagged” supposedly “bothered” him because he was a “good person.” Keep reading »

Quote Of The Day: Cindy Crawford Is Trying To Kill The Magazine Industry

“If you don’t like something, don’t buy it. Don’t buy the magazine if you don’t like what it says. If you don’t like the image a brand is putting out, don’t buy it. What I really don’t agree with is people who complain about it but still support it. You’re giving your power away. If people don’t want skinny models, stop buying the magazine with the skinny model, and believe me those magazines will change fast. It’s business.”

Cindy Crawford’s Mole Makes Her Nervous

When it comes to body imperfections, Cindy Crawford could care less about cellulite. It’s her mole she’s worried about. Not that the supermodel has ever been self-conscious about her signature beauty mark, but she’s concerned that it could become cancerous. She tells the Daily Mail, “It’s not something I really like to talk about. But I do now get this and all my moles checked out every year.” The mole has grown in size over the years, which is a possible sign of melanoma.

We commend Crawford for checking up on her health and being a good example to women who sometimes let their doctor’s visits lapse for longer than they should (guilty as charged). After the jump, some tips on how to keep tabs on your own spots and beauty marks. [Daily Mail]
