Death By Defenestration And Fashion Go Hand In Hand

Apparently, the buyers at New Zealand boutique Superette think the clothes they sell are so bitchin’ they’d still look cute on a dead girl. Congrats on turning the statement “I wouldn’t be caught dead in that!” on its head, but we think your ad is a bit tacky (and creepy), guys. Let’s take a look at the implications of this particular ad, shall we? Keep reading »

Ew, Your Cleavage Looks All Wrinkly

Hallelujah! We interrupt your moment of worrying about impending crow’s feet and forehead creases to distract you with yet another aging “ailment” that you need to start fixating on ASAP! Whether you’ve considered it or not, your cleavage has the potential to get old and crinkly, just like the rest of you! First on the menu — for all you mild cases out there — we’ve got a backwards-looking, cup-less bra (pictured) that promises to prevent those unfortunate chest creases you get while sleeping. Order La Decollette here immediately, because let’s face it: It’s a great holiday gift for you, your mom and grandma. But that’s not all! Keep reading »

Gaga For Gaga? Now You Can Own Her Hair

Was your neighborhood overrun with Lady Gaga impersonators this Halloween? For all those crazy fans out there, the wig-wearing diva is giving up a strand of her real hair to make their dreams come true. She’s selling a deluxe box set — complete with the book of Gaga, “The Fame” album, eight new songs, 3D glasses, and to top it all off, a lock of her hair. The price tag on this Gaga-licious item is $114.98. No word on where the money is going, but we’re pretty sure it’ll be added to the funds for her crazy costumes. We say this is way creepy. It was weird enough when Elvis sold his hair, but oh wait, he was dead already and he is also the King. Thoughts? [Mirror] Keep reading »

Step Away From The Farm!

My Facebook page has been taken over by FarmVille updates. So-and-so just harvested their stock! Your friend just sold his wares! Help your neighbor scare off crows! And on, and on, and on. The game is sweeping the social networking world and, apparently, running people’s lives. One man gets up in the middle of the night in order to harvest his crops. A husband made his hungry, pregnant wife wait while he tended to his raspberries. Conversations revolve around FarmVille coins and experience rankings. Really?!! Keep reading »

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. Remember those Chanel and Louis Vuitton cupcakes?

While we get the idea, Flamboyant‘s take doesn’t quite follow through. OK fine, we’re just going to come out and say it: that Burberry “croissant” looks like a turd. Yum! [Fashion Copious] Keep reading »

Style Buzz: The Blue Vagina Monster!

  • Model Kimbra showed up at 1st Annual Guggenheim Art Awards last night dressed as what many think was intended to be a blue vagina. And no, it wasn’t a costume party. [Jezebel]
  • Steve Madden is starting a clothing line this spring. We can only hope it’s a classy as these leopard bow pumps. [Second City Style]
  • You can’t spend a couple grand on Alexander Wang’s upcoming Rocco bag even if you want to. Barney’s New York already has a 400 person waiting list.
  • Michael Kors is following in Burberry’s footsteps and doing color cosmetics now, too. [Beauty Counter Blog/Style.com]

Yoga Jeans: What Has The World Come To?

We’ve opposed it, but tights continue to be viewed as pants by many. And, last spring, jeans fused with leggings to become “jeggings.” Now, exercise apparel company Athleta is trying to sell us on their Bettona Pant, “a yoga pant that thinks it’s a jean.” With a faux fly, rivets at the pockets, and contrast stitching, these pants have jean-like details but are made from a stretchy, sweat-wicking, breathable fabric with an antimicrobial finish. Sorry, but we don’t get it. Why can’t tights just be tights, and leggings just be leggings, and jeans just be jeans, and yoga pants just be yoga pants?! Can we stop combining clothes and trying to give them multiple functions? [Athleta] Keep reading »

Um, No: Teapups Handbags At Barneys

Please tell us these “Teapups” handbags are for children!? We found them while browsing the Barneys website, and while, clearly, these stuffed dog bags seem more like toys than grown-up fashions, we wouldn’t be surprised if Paris Hilton had started this hellish fashion trend. As it so happens, one of the models, a girly Chihuahua with a pink plaid coat, appears to be named after the heiress (what are we teaching our children, people?).

Perhaps Teapups will catch on with dog enthusiasts? You can pick from Malteses, Yorkies, and Dachshunds … woof! All we know is, we are getting serious flashbacks of that heinous stuffed animal bag by Rick Owens that costs $925. Yikes. [Barneys] Keep reading »

How Far Would You Go To Steal Lindsay’s Style?

We hope it’s not as far as Rachel Lee, the 19-year-old accused of robbing celebrities like Lindsay Lohan, Audrina Patridge and Paris Hilton. Lee, a California native, was apparently so enamored with the glamour of Hollywood’s It gals that she allegedly lifted $2 million dollars worth of jewelry from Hilton, $43,000 of designer duds from Patridge, and $128,000 in accessories from Lohan. Can you imagine this woman’s living room? Hollywood Star maps and Life & Style subscriptions strewn across her coffee table with E! News on in the background. [Perhaps even a shrine dedicated to Rachel Zoe? -- Editor] Did she even see Lindsay’s Ungaro showing? Rachel, that’s not the closet to rob. Now, if she had heisted Gwen Stefani’s wardrobe we might be on her side. [People] Keep reading »
