It’s hard for us to look at a mannequin’s uncovered, plastic head and keep our pants on. They’re just that hot. The synthetic and/or sculpted hair, the fake, vacant eyes, and the total lack of resemblance to a real live woman just gets the blood flowing in our nether regions. Aww, yeah.
OK, so obviously that’s not true. They are mannequins. They are inanimate. We do not have a lady boner for them. But apparently the Iranian government is very concerned about the power of the mannequin to seduce and corrupt. Keep reading »
I used to pride myself on my unsurpassed skill when it came to walking in ridiculously high heels. None of that wobbling around and tripping all over myself business. So when I had ankle surgery last December, the recovery period was a bitch. Aside from the almost two months on crutches, there have also been the six virtually heel-less months since. I can whip out my lower ones for a couple hours at this point, but beyond that my leg starts giving out spontaneously, sending me into an incredibly attractive floor-ward dive. People love it.

“Honnneeeeyyy! I’m hooo-ooome!”
“Oh, Poindexter, I’ve missed you all day. Here’s your Scotch, and just let me loosen your tie for — what? What’s this? You’re wearing a bowtie now? And I don’t even have to undo it for you?” Keep reading »
If hair could scream in agony, our eardrums would be bursting. We know that the fashion industry has been using the economy as an excuse to produce more “artistic” runway shows, but French designer Charlie Le Mindu has taken things to quite the extreme at London Fashion Week. Outfitting his models in sculptural hair, um, things … some displayed braided masks, while others were covered in super-large helmet-like ‘dos.
We hear that Chewbacca is Mr. Le Mindu’s most loyal customer, and of the new collection, he said, “Aowwww! Raarghhh!” Keep reading »
Sorry to interrupt Fashion Week coverage, but we have a very important announcement to make regarding new developments in the highly controversial ongoing Kate Gosselin hair saga.
So, like, you know when you’ve given a friend some much-needed advice–you take the time to hear out all of her venting and pat her head during the shoulder crying and thoughtfully consider the best course to take and dispense pearls accordingly–and then they go ahead and do the opposite after all that? The masses have reached out to her in unison: Whether you’re Team Kate or not I think we can all agree that hers is the scariest haircut we’ve seen on any famous person since, god, I can’t even think of another example, so that’s really saying something. Despite the (favorable) uproar caused by her much prettier People magazine cover and mere days after she made a much blogged-about appearance on “The View” with a new ‘do that the ladies endorsed and even Gosselin herself acknowledged was cute, what does she do? She goes and makes a public appearance and, well, let’s just say she has regressed. The right photo, taken just hours ago at the Southern Women’s Show in Charlotte, NC makes us cry just a little.You know, like if we all cared. Because we don’t. OK, maybe just a little.

Much has been made of the blue prom dress Bella Swan (or Kristen Stewart, depending on how much you blur fantasy and reality) wears in the “Twilight” movie. You may have heard of it. Countless teen magazines and websites have scoured the market looking for similar styles, but nothing quite compares to this rendition spotted at a Port Angeles, Washington bridal shop. Owner Belva Bodey claims she was inspired to cop the design because in the movie Bella shops in their town for a book. Call it a leap of faith, but she believes Bella would have bought her prom dress from the same town. Talk about mixing up your fact and fiction. Yeeps! Incidentally, the green dress pictured is one Bella supposedly wears to her birthday party in “New Moon.” Once again, rabid “Twilight” fans scare us more than actual vampires do! Keep reading »
Apparently, Lady Gaga has evolved beyond her penchant for pantslessness. It is no longer enough! Henceforth, all public appearances will be made both pantsless and topless, as evidenced by her completely see-through getup at Marc Jacobs’ after-party last night. Blogger Amy Odell saw Gaga’s nipples with her own two eyes. [The Cut] Keep reading »
Johnny Weir, eat your heart out. If you’ve ever wanted to live out your Ice Capade fantasies, now is the moment, thanks to our discovery of Holiday On Ice Costumes, a resale site of over-the-top wardrobe options for ice skaters and, presumably, norms like us. To look Michelle Kwan-chic, you could start with the “Single Ladies” section (named for category, not the Beyoncé song), where you’ll find bedazzled leotards and tulle skirts. To set fire to the ice, check out the flame-themed ensembles. Our favorite, however, has to be this leopard guy’s bolero, which, in certain romantic circumstances, we might not actually mind seeing on a man (if you get what we’re saying).

So apparently Kristin Davis — yes, Charlotte from “Sex and the City” — has a fashion line. And even though she seems pretty busy shooting “SATC 2″ here in NYC, evidently she is planning to show The Kristin Davis Collection, rife as it is with polyester, bright enamel bracelets and imitation patent leather, during New York Fashion Week. Aside from the fact that Charlotte wasn’t even a particularly stylish character on “SATC,” there is also that fact that Kristin herself basically brings to mind a blank fashion slate. Seriously, maybe it’s just further proof that this whole actor-turned-designer thing needs to end. Have you even seen this line? [Style List] Keep reading »
