Turns out Victoria Beckham isn’t the only former Spice Girl who wants to make it in the rag trade. Sexy Spice Geri Haliwell (who we discovered not too long ago is still, in fact, quite sexy) has debuted a line of swimwear. And she’s modeling it herself!
Maybe it’s all the holiday cheer, maybe it’s just pure coincidence, but this was the week that everyone we know got engaged. Okay, maybe not people we actually know personally. But famous people who we feel like we know? They all got engaged. And because it seems like the only fair thing to do, let’s pit these newly betrothed couples against each other in a celebrity engagement deathmatch of sorts!
Happy Hump Day! We’d like to take this opportunity to introduce you to Elizabeth Olsen — yes, as in Elizabeth and James — ask you if you’d ever get an eyelash perm, and share Refinery29′s most moisturizing lipsticks. Enjoy!
Back in May, Anderson Cooper debuted two new sets of specs while guest-hosting “Live! with Regis and Kelly.” For her part, Ripa promptly declared them both “just wrong” and nothing was ever said about it again. Until last night, when Cooper unveiled yet another pair to Kathy Griffin in anticipation of their New Year’s Eve co-hosting plans. It didn’t go much better the second time around.
French model Isabel Caro, known for her excessive thinness and struggle with anorexia, died on Nov. 17, according to a report from The Associated Press.
In a year when people auctioned off everything from Queen Elizabeth II’s old underwear to Jackie O’s fake pearls, one California man couldn’t seem to let go of a very rare shirt once owned by none other than crooner Frank Sinatra. But his luck will finally change on New Year’s Day.
Remember the VH1 Fashion Awards? They were such a thing back in the day! They were even the inspiration for Zoolander! The last time they were held was in 2002, but the show’s archives are full of awesome fashion-related ephemera. Like Fat Karl.
Makeup is good for a lot of things: dressing up an outfit, covering up a pimple, or brightening up an otherwise dreary day. But in the right hands, it’s also good for creating seriously cool designs — which is why we’ve rounded up the eight craziest and most creative lipstick looks we’ve ever seen, all of which give new meaning to the phrase “luscious lips.”
Turns out the people who thought the iPad was going to save magazines might have spoken too soon. All the magazines that report their iPad mag sales to the Audit Bureau of Circulations (the tracking agency that keeps tabs on how many copies of Vogue we buy from CVS every month) have experienced a sales slump — and big-name fashion magazines are no exception.
In lieu of a year end Best Dressed List, we thought we’d share with you the personalities who, for better or for worse, defined style in 2010. These are the people whose names, next year or ten years from now, will be synonymous with what it meant to be en vogue at the end of the first decade of the 21st century.
In case you haven’t heard, Barack Obama is currently vacationing with his family in Hawaii — a land of turquoise water, white beaches, and the setting for those 2008 photos of a buff and shirtless President that captured the imagination of wonks and everyday civilians alike. This year, the White House is doing everything in its power to prevent another round of Presidential pectoral pics by actively ordering reporters not not to snap any shirtless pics while Obama is snorkeling.
Fill this under The Most Unexpected Thing We’ve Read All Week: skinny jeans, porn, and human excrement (yes, poop) are North Korea’s most popular items.
We generally lament Terry Richardson‘s gratuitously porny ad campaigns, which is why the controversial photog’s latest work is so shocking. Richardson shot Anja Rubik for Mango‘s fall/winter 2010 ad campaign, and the results are so uncharacteristically not porny that we almost can’t believe Richardson shot them.
In a history-making move, the Norwegian fashion community has banned together to ban fur from Oslo Fashion Week, making it the first week of runway presentations in the world to do so.
Cynthia Colson of Central Florida found herself in jail on Sunday after calling 911 four separate times about a dispute over her manicure. Colson told the dispatcher she was calling to “press charges” because the nail salon “did not treat [her] well.” Um, what?
You know how we love our Kate Moss empire expansion plan rumors. First, we thought she was going to make jam, then we thought she was going to challenge Barbizon by establishing the Kate Moss Modeling Academy. But apparently, the supermodel is passing by both of those totally viable career plans to do what she really wants to do: record an album.
We’ve been skeptical of Nicki Minaj‘s style in the past — can you blame us? — but now that the rapper has divulged who is giving her fashion advice, we may need to reconsider our preconceived notion of the flamboyant up-and-comer. Why? Because said advice giver is none other than fashion fiend Kanye West.
Today’s StyleDish is all about looking good when the weather outside is frightful — plus shopping, shopping and more shopping!
It’s no secret that we love ourselves a vintage video around here — and half the reason we love them is the mystery! What year was it? Where is the accompanying editorial spread? Can we name every model and figure out the photographer? It’s like a super fun game of fashion trivia. But today, dear readers, we found one that stumped us. Featuring Naomi Campbell, Christy Turlington, Kate Moss, and three unknown models, the clip is described as a “Rare Pirelli” video, but we’re not so sure. Can you help us out?
