When we first heard that Kelly Cutrone and her BFF Justine Bateman were debuting a web-based talk show, we were insanely excited. But as the weeks (and episodes) of “Wake Up And Get Real” wore on, we have to admit, we were a little disappointed and kinda bored. For a show that describes itself as “a talk show that would express the views that aren’t on THE VIEW,” we were hoping they’d tackle a few more weighty and debate-worthy issues. Well, now they have.
In a rare instance, Tavi took time away from talking Rodarte to write about the most ordinary thing a kid her age could discuss: her middle school graduation dance. Save the interjections of I’m-too-cool-for-this-ness, we found the whole post more than a little bit refreshing.
The number of times I’ve burned, fried, singed and/or annihilated my hair is disastrously, embarassingly high. Beauty experts are supposed to know better — but, of course, flatirons, curling irons, and blowdryers (to say nothing of random, calamitous overseas experiences involving wattage converters and electrical outlets) take their toll. Following are products that have saved my hair (and ego) time and again, and which are all beloved by beauty-insiders for their near magical ability to undo almost any level of damage.
In addition to being one of the leading organizations committed to the continuation of HIV/AIDS research, the American Foundation for AIDS Research has become synonymous with its high profile galas, often attended by more than a few well-dressed ladies. So last week, amfAR supporters celebrated in style in Cannes at the Cinema Against AIDS Gala. We previously brought you photos of Dree Hemingway’s blinding neon Valentino dress. We’re still debating whether we loved or hated her overly matching outfit, so in an effort to distract ourselves, we thumbed through some of the evening’s other outfits.
As promised via Twitter last week, M.I.A. has posted clips of her interview with The New York Times Magazine‘s Lynn Hirschberg. If you’ll remember, the artist didn’t take too kindly to Hirschberg’s depiction of her in a profile published last week. But instead of the long transcripts vindicating the artist we expected to see, we got two short audio clips, the first of which only proves that Hirschberg really wanted some truffle-flavored french fries.
Oh, how we love celebrity fashion labels. Nowadays even the mildly famous can get in on the rag trade and sew their personality into overpriced t-shirts and so-so bags. And now, former Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher is getting in on the act. The New York Times reports the singer was recently sauntering around New York to promote his label Pretty Green, which made its US debut in April.
This morning Lady Gaga participated in the ninth installment of SHOWstudio’s In Camera interview series, answering questions from fans around the globe. But the interview didn’t just attract the attention of Gaga’s little monsters – some pretty big ones showed up to submit queries, too. Fashion-world heavyweights from Cathy Horyn to Naomi Campbell typed in a question for the pop diva.
Will Cameron Diaz ever age? At 37 years old, the blonde bombshell looks better than ever. Add a summer blockbuster (Knight and Day, co-starring Tom Cruise) to her mile-long legs and affable personality, and you’ve got the perfect cover girl for Vogue UK‘s July issue.
America’s Next Top Model season four contestant Brandy Rusher was arrested in Houston today, charged with misdemeanor resisting arrest. Houston’s ABC affiliate KTRK reported that police came knocking on Rusher’s door in response to a complaint about loud music. At some point, she pushed and shoved one of the officers, cursed at them and tried to run away.
As you might have noticed, we’ve been following Coco Rocha’s tweets about her wedding plans like it’s our job. Well, OK, it is our job. Which is why we were expecially excited today when she tweeted a photo of herself in a wedding dress.
When Spanx, the company known for its concealing, shape-enhancing women’s undergarments, introduced its first pieces of shapewear for men in February, the general reaction was, well, laughter. But the real joke, as The New York Times reports, is that men’s shapewear has been a smash hit at the point of sale.
Styleite’s resident woman-in-the-know Hillary Frazier has distilled the best of the Internet for your weekend perusal, including a user-made fashion magazine, a truly awesome online store and one of Sweden’s best style blogs.
Inspired by the juxtaposition of beauty and grit in SHOW: Photographs by Henry Horenstein—on exhibit at Clic Gallery—for those looking to add a tinge of vampy fetishism to their beauty routine…look no further.
Need to restock your closet for the summer? From dresses to accessories to shoes – and even awesome bags to tote it all around in – our list of affordable summer essentials will have you covered.
Okay, okay! We get it! Miranda Kerr is not just a Victoria’s Secret model any longer. The underwear model formerly known for her body rather than high fashion appeal has been popping up everywhere, it seems.
While today’s Calvin Klein underwear ads are certainly attention grabbing — what with their celebrity endorsements and oiled up men — this video of Kate Moss walking circles around Marky Mark (pre-respectable acting career, natch), all while he natters about a pair of underwear that “holds [him] snug,” just takes the cake.
Nicole Miller launched a new website today in the hopes of making her Internet identity just as shiny and enjoyable an experience as her retail locations and her advertising campaigns. The designer told WWD that the world’s rapidly changing technology inspired her to do a complete overhaul. But while the site may be radically different from the old NicoleMiller.com, it’s not dissimilar to the online presence of other fashion brands.
There are a lot of economic recovery indicators that we like to keep track of: mortgage delinquencies, the unemployment rate, corporate debt, even consumer spending. But the one new measure of how well our financial health is faring that we’re not so sure about? How short men’s swimming trunks are getting.
Between the return to chic of long, goth-worthy hemlines, Lindsay‘s recent affection for bell-bottoms and a couple of Kris Kros-inspired incidents, we were wondering when we’d see a resurgence of the choker. You know — the ultimate in early 90s accessories, typically teamed with a crushed velvet baby doll dress, pair of White Out-stained Doc Martins and plenty of angst.
Lifetime has decided to feed our insatiable appetite for more Project Runway and Heidi Klum-related television awesomeness with two new spin-off series.
