Style Buzz: Karl Lagerfeld’s Barbie Dolls

  • DAMN, why do I not live in France?!?! Karl Lagerfeld designed fancy little outfits for some Barbie dolls and they’re are on display at the Colette shop in Paris from March 9-28. Pics (alongside a real-life “Ken” model) above. [Collete]
  • And in more Barbie news: a lawmaker in West Virgina is trying to outlaw the Little Miss Wackadoo Body Image with the Barbie Ban Bill. Okay, I’m the first person to agree giving little kids a blonde, big-boobed, long-legged and smiling doll sends a bad message. But maybe we should put pressure on Mattel to create a doll which reflects an actual human’s body first. [MSNBC]
  • “I don’t drink, but I smell like I do,” says transsexual performance artist, Amanda Lepore, about her new $950 fragrance, Amanda, which includes a note of Cristal champagne. [New York Times]
  • We’ll never get sick of models falling! [Refinery 29]

  • He’s not MY choice for sexiest royal, but whatever…”Esquire” voted Prince Charles, second in line to England’s throne, as one of their “Best Dressed Men” in their April issue. [Daily Mail]
  • Jennifer Lopez borrowed $50K worth of bling from Swiss billionaire/diamond aficianado Robert Mouawad for an event at Barney’s…and liked the diamond jewelry so much she kept it. No hard feelings from the billionaire, though.
  • Somewhat inexplicably, Paris Hilton will be the first recipient of The Fragrance Foundation’s “Celebrity of the Year” award in May. You know, we actually have a bottle of her Fairy Dust perfume and just haven’t gotten around to trying it yet…. [Now Smell This]

Turn On Your Brights!

That kooky Brit, Sienna Miller, was seen frolicking around dreary, gray London in fire engine-red buckled shoes. Brilliant move! There’s no easier way to sass up an outfit than with a pair of wow-colored shoes. Six we love, after the jump… Keep reading »

Makeup: What’s With the Kid Stuff?

Most little girls (and even some boys!) have a moment where they play in mom’s makeup, pretending to be a grown-up woman. But is the reverse true as well: do grown women like to play in makeup that looks to be for little girls?

Barbie for Stila, featuring makeup mimicking Barbie’s looks over the past half-century appeared in January. Blue Smurf makeup for Too Faced also came in January and a Hello Kitty collection from M.A.C. — a pink kitty adorns all-black makeup cases — debuts this February.

I love the Smurfs and Barbie as much as the next girl, but what’s up with all the cartoon characters on makeup? And what’s next? Care Bear-inspired pastel nail polish? Strawberry Shortcake red lip gloss? Dare I even suggest orange Garfield eyeshadow? Help me make sense of all this kitsch, after the jump…. Keep reading »

What’s With Women’s Fashion Mags Hiring Male Sports Star Interns? And When Can We Get One?

David Beckham*, what hath you wrought?

First, the New York Rangers’ left wing Sean Avery interned at Vogue and blogged for MensVogue.com about everything from what’s in his closet (Dries Van Noten, Chanel) to what it’s like fracturing one’s spleen on the ice.

Now, Philadelphia Eagles football player, Stewart Bradley, (who is a total stud muffin, BTW) is interning at Elle magazine. The Philadelphia Daily News reports that the 6’4″, 255 lb. linebacker may even be working at Fashion Week later this month.

Hmm, I’d be interested to know if all of Elle‘s interns get to work at Fashion Week.

(*Of course, Becks hasn’t actually interned at a fashion magazine, so this is not exactly his fault. But Becks is responsible for the idea that gifted athletes could also be metrosexual fashionistas. Why, just this week we posted a pic of Becks in his undies, posing for Armani.) Keep reading »

Ooo Wee Ooo, Look Just Like Buddy Holly

Way before MGMT, Weezer, Kurt Cobain, and even Bob Dylan, Buddy Holly made nerd rock cool with his iconic black-rimmed glasses and according The Guardian the dweeb look is BACK. Channel this legend’s look—who died 50 years ago this month—and hopefully his visionary spirit with a pair of these geeky-glam specs.

1. These slim black-and-pewter framed glasses will look effortlessly hip on most face types. [$280, Oliver People]
2. It takes a brave girl to pull off these bold glasses, but you can do it, girl. [$77, Guess]
3. Red-frames are a fun (and flattering) twist to this retro look. [$550, Selima Optique]
4. These wide-framed bad boys are both cool and chic. [$130, Ray Ban]

DIY: Instant Art

Looking to make your cell of an apartment a little less depressing without pissing off your crotchety landlord? Painting your blues away will also mean kissing your deposit good bye and those N’Sync posters are kind of unacceptable at this point. So what’s a budget-conscious girl to do?

Though the options outside of boy bands and large scale art are admittedly slim, check out Kate’s Paperie or Papyrus for vintage-looking wrapping paper sheets worthy of framing. Blown up maps and post cards, old school anatomy textbook images and embarrassing ’70s yearbook pictures are looking for a home at less than $4.50 a pop.

Slide the poster-sized sheets into cheap as hell frames from A.I. Friedman and just wait for your friends to jealously ask where you got your new art. Be sure to tell them it’s from a gallery in SoHo or Paris. Feeling just a tad superior is half the fun. Keep reading »

Study Says Makeover Shows Make Us Feel Bad

Bad boyfriends…frenemies…makeover TV shows. One of the fundamental questions of human nature is why do we love stuff that may not be so good for our self-esteem?

A new study from the University of Southern California says that that women who watch more makeover shows, like “Nip/Tuck,” “Dr. 90210″ or “The Swan,” feel more insecure about their bodies. It brings a whole new meaning to the words “boob tube,” doesn’t it? Keep reading »

How To Buy Affordable Art

So you can finally afford an “It” bag (though you loathe the term), a vacation to another continent, and a couch that doesn’t require assembly. So why pray tell do you still have that sappy Klimt poster hanging over your bed? It’s time to outfit your pad with some REAL art. I’m not suggesting you hit Christie’s just yet. But somewhere between Damien Hirst and DIY-nude’s is a bounty of gorgeous pieces perfect for poshifying your home. Read on to find works at every price point.. Keep reading »
