’90s supermodel and memoir author Carre Otis says beating her addiction to heroine and cocaine was nowhere near as difficult as she found overcoming a twenty-year long battle with anorexia. In an interview with recovery site, The Fix, Otis shares the moment she knew she needed to get help, the hardest part of recovery, and what modeling was really like in the ’80s and ’90s. (Hint: it involved a lot of drugs.
Today’s StyleDish involves the hot guy from Love Actually, the most delightful holiday shopping video of all time, and Ab Fab.
It’s the season of spending! And shoplifting? The holidays are inching closer, which means people are shopping. A lot. But they aren’t always paying for everything they’re going home with.
Lea T totally rules. The transgender model is on the cover of this month’s Elle Brasil looking all kinds of awesome.
Everyone breath easy! Lindsay Lohan’s younger sister, Ali (who now apparently goes by her full name, Aliana) not only covers the upcoming issue of Page Six magazine, but uses the space inside to scoff at those pesky plastic surgery rumors.
Who made Barbara Walter‘s “10 Most Fascinating People of 2011″ list? Pippa Middleton, for one.
We know we complain all the time about fragrance ads being weird, which is why it’s sort of refreshing to see one that’s, well, normal. Marc Jacobs‘ new commercial for his fragrances Daisy and Daisy Eau So Fresh, are about as normal as normal gets.
Terry Richardson grosses us out on the regular, and today is no different. You see, the photographer got a little, um, ballsy during a shoot for Diesel Mexico.
Why Victoria’s Secret felt the need to photoshop Candice Swanepoel in their ad for last night’s fashion show is beyond us. Furthermore, why they felt the need to photoshop her knee and/or lower leg is even more insane. Fine, smudge out that wrinkle of skin that so bothers the art director. Or add some shadow to her already infuriatingly sharp cheekbones. But mangling her leg so that it resembles nothing so much as a strangely shaped blob of her skin? That’s just a waste of time.
Amy Winhouse‘s place in fashion history has been secured! A Chilean fashion museum shelled out tens of thousands of dollars for the dress the late singer wore on the cover of her hit 2006 Back to Black.
One of the things that makes Kate Moss such a good model is her (genetically blessed) ability to look beautiful in hair and makeup that would make almost anyone else look like a sexually androgynous ’80s rockstar. Oh, wait — that’s the point!
If producing the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is a big production, then you know its viewing party isn’t just going to be a simple cocktail hour. Which means Angel Miranda Kerr couldn’t possibly show up in any old cocktail dress, now could she?
If you hadn’t already heard, Kim Kardashian‘s big sister Kourtney is pregnant for a second time with her (well, not husband, but we’ll call him life partner?) life partner Scott Disick. And while we’re happy for them and their adorable son Mason, who’ll be getting a little brother or sister, we’re also a little confused as to why Kourtney didn’t let the people at Glamour know. She and her sisters are on the cover of the January issue.
If ever there was a metric for public opinion about the fashion industry, it’s search engine results. And according to the engineers at Bing, one brand stood out this year more than any other.
Imagine a world where instead of being bombarded with Photoshopped images of women’s skeletal frames being squeezed into size-zero designer dresses, they were encouraged to put on five, 10 or even 15 pounds, fill out their frames and become more voluptuous. That world is a reality — or at least it was in the 1940s and 50s.
Kate Middleton wore a dress with peace signs printed on it. Was it some sort of political message? Humanitarian commentary? Or maybe, just maybe she liked the pattern? Also: it was by Mulberry. Patriotic!
Styleite favorite (we don’t have an Auto Reblog policy on our Tumblr for nothing!) Karlie Kloss covers the December issue of Vogue Italia and we have one thing, and one thing only, to say: Is she a supermodel or what?
Well, congratulations, Internet shoppers. If you bought something online on Cyber Monday, you were part of the tidal wave of hard-earned dollars that increased overall sales some 33 percent, according to data compiled by IBM.
The one thing that had us more excited than the debut of The Hunger Games movie was the debut of The Hunger Games branded nail polish. But Lionsgate, which is producing the film, killed the deal earlier this month, and now it’s being sued for $10 million by the company that was supposed to make the polish.
If you needed another reason to love Tavi Gevinson, her gorgeous cover of Joni Mitchell’s “Case of You” (which she dedicated to Mindy Kaling, natch) should do nicely.
