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 »

Eat Cookies And Lose Weight!

Want to eat cookies and lose weight? Sure ya do. According to Dr. Siegal’s Cookie Diet, it’s entirely possible.

Think Twice Before Walking Around Naked In Your Own House


If you thought all that Balloon Boy coverage was ridiculous, you might roll your eyes at this major story Fox News is covering. However, Virgina resident Eric Williamson actually needs the exposure (uh, heh) because here is a man who has clearly been wronged. Every day at 5:30 a.m., Mr. Williamson wakes up and makes his way downstairs to make a pot of coffee and he does so nude. Because even though it may sound out-of-this-world crazy to some people, many folks actually kind of enjoy the fact that they can walk around in their own houses minding their business and stuff while they’re naked. So anyway … Keep reading »

Uh, No: Solafeet Foot Tanner

Here’s a quick way to get cancer—or at least foot cancer (if that even existed until now)—the Solafeet Foot Tanner, another useless and overpriced object brought to you by the endlessly entertaining SkyMall catalogue. Marketed to golfers who want to “rid themselves of ugly sock tan lines,” all you have to do is stick your feet into the machine for 15 minutes a day (which probably takes off a day of your life with each session). But apparently there are people in the world who suffer from tan line embarrassment:

“If you always feel like people are gawking at your white feet and the unsightly tan lines around your ankles when you wear sandals or pumps, then you need the Solafeet foot tanner … Then you can go from the golf course to the clubhouse in confidence.”

So, basically, you can live it up (for only $229.99) before the doctors amputate both your feet. Awesome. [SkyMall.com] Keep reading »

Style Buzz: Crocs Take Over the World And Balloon Boy Is “Project Runway” Fan

  • Someone bailed Crocs out with a $30 million loan and they’ve gone bats**t with plans to open a Crocs-only retail store in Colorado. And they were so close to going out of business just a few weeks ago … Damn. [Denver Business Journal]
  • Was the Balloon Boy inspired by one of Christopher Straub’s “Project Runway” runway creations? Um… [Stylelist]

Quick Pic: Ugly-Cute Or Just Ugly-Ugly?
