High-street and department store collaborations with luxury fashion houses are commonplace these days, what with stores announcing a new capsule collection every five minutes (or so it seems). But for all of the brands that choose to affordably market their wares to the mainstream, there are a few whose ethos seem quite at odds with… READ MORE »

There was a moment there when I thought Lana Del Rey would be but a blip on our collective cultural radar given that, um, everyone kind of seemed to hate her, but with big-name brands like Mulberry, Jaguar, and H&M backing the controversial songstress, it seems like Lana will have a role in the zeitgeist… READ MORE »

In the vast, ever-evolving cosmos of luxury makeup, Chanel unfailingly offers some of the very best — and they come with gorgeous artsy videos, to boot. The brand has been teasing us with short promotional flicks advertising their upcoming Rouge Allure reformulation for some time, and what this new video lacks in the hypnotic factor… READ MORE »

Talia Joy Castellano has makeup chops far beyond her years. The 12-year-old has over 100,000 YouTube subscribers for a reason: she’s exceptionally good at doing her face, and her clever, vivacious onscreen personality makes her step-by-step tutorials a pleasure to watch. If not for her baldness, one would never guess that Talia carries an immense… READ MORE »

I’ve  seen every incarnation of the “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” trailer, as I’m eagerly awaiting the forthcoming TLC show (premiering tomorrow night!), which features Alana from “Toddlers & Tiaras” and her clan. I’ve accepted her family’s nicknames (Sugar Bear’s not such a bad thing to be called), pondered the purpose of tummy jiggling (it’s… READ MORE »

While there are many things definitively Chanel that I don’t exactly promote — tweed, for instance — I almost always agree with Peter Philips. The global creative director of Chanel Makeup since 2008, Philips is responsible for crazy-coveted Le Vernis nail lacquer shades like Particulière, which sparked the frenzy for taupe-grey (or “greige”) polish back… READ MORE »

Um. Sold. And they only cost $60. I need a Hugvie, the vibrating communication pillow. You just put your cell phone in a pouch in its minimalist human form, cuddle it, and it vibrates to the rhythm of the voice of the person you’re talking to. “The two vibrators produce a throbbing sound like a… READ MORE »

High fashion films have a track record of being consistently gorgeous. I’m not talking about, say, “The Devil Wears Prada” (though I will never not argue that it’s one of the best movies ever), but rather the type of high-brow videos that result from collaborations between fashion houses and illustrious directors. Take, for instance, Martin… READ MORE »

I’m literally speechless after watching this video of Courtney Stodden channelling Hello Kitty. Either she’s certifiable or she has a bright future as a performance artist. The girl has no inhibitions. It’s quite remarkable, actually. Her and James Franco should collaborate. [You Tube] … READ MORE »


Love & Sex

Comedian Greg Barris and SNL digital short filmmaker Adam Epstein teamed up to make a video about real true love. And by real true love, they mean a passionate relationship with a puppet. God, there’s so much existential truth in this video. [You Tube] … READ MORE »

North Carolina mom Patty Skudlarek says she would prefer her 18-year-old son have sex in her home. Why? Because she thinks its “safer” there. “With the kids having sex at home, it’s a safer environment, because, you know, it’s clean. And usually the place they keep the condoms are in their bedroom. So then they’re… READ MORE »

It looks like animals can be just as musically inclined as humans are. I’m now a fan of Shanthi, the world’s most musical elephant. She’s not touring right now, but you can catch one of her harmonica ditties if you go visit Washington D.C.’s National Zoo, where she lives. Or you can wait for her… READ MORE »

My early predictions are in. Now that I’ve seen all of the live performances on “The Voice,” I’m calling it.  Jamar Rogers for the win. There are lots of other performers I’m digging — Lindsey Paveo, Erin Willet, Mathai and Juliet Simms were all live show standouts. BUT … I believe Jamar Rogers, who the… READ MORE »

Snoop Dogg’s little girl, Cori B. is following in her father’s footsteps. This is her third single, “Daddy’s Girl”, from her forthcoming album Choc’s World. How did I miss her first two singles? May I just say that I love how appropriate this song is. It’s all puppies and cotton candy. No blunts or booty… READ MORE »

Do we even need to debate this? Obviously, this supermarket in Australia is haunted. There’s no way that fruit roll-up could have just fallen off that shelf on its own. Not a chance! I’m hoping this means you can still eat food in the afterlife, which would be great news. I have a feeling that… READ MORE »

Sometimes the internet bestows us with gifts. Strange gifts that make us laugh so hard we cry. Sometimes we don’t even know what’s happening or why, just that it’s happening. It’s not for us to understand, just for us to appreciate. I present you with the doggie music video version of “Ima Read” by Zebra… READ MORE »

Beware if you are planning to visit the Caribbean island of St. Kitts. There are a species of monkeys that will steal your fruity rum drink with the paper umbrella while you tan. BBC’s “Weird Nature” featured a segment about vervet monkeys, the alchies of the animal kingdom. And I’m kind of obsessed. But unlike… READ MORE »

I was a skeptic about the idea of virtual kissing to begin with. But where to start with the Kissenger, the robot that replicates kissing between long distance lovers? The cheesy production of the video with the bad club music? Or the fact that it is a pig? Or that it oinks while smooching? Let’s… READ MORE »
