Back in the day, and by “day” we mean a good 50 years ago, it was popular for women to shop from the comfort of their own homes.

Attention male teenagers: on your next visit to the barber, you may want to avoid getting the Justin Bieber. Bieber Fever is spreading again, but this time in a form that injects an odd wave of criminal activity into the tresses of those who dare to replicate its namesake’s eponymous ‘do.
This brings new meaning to the term “Crimes of Fashion.” Judges have begun (metaphorically, of course) accessorizing their mallets and robes with fashion police badges in the hopes of reclaiming some style order in the courtroom.
Styleite intern Rika Nurrahmah agreed to take on an abridged version of the shopper’s diet challenge. Find out what she wore, when she wore it, and how she coped with a limited wardrobe.
one are the days of dressing up toddlers to resemble an American Girl doll. In its place, mothers are vicariously test driving the hot adult trends of today by putting them on their own little tykes. The next big trend to circulate community playgrounds nationwide since the debut of denim diapers: tapered jeans for toddlers.
Sylvester Stallone spent his whole career maintaining his physique. It was as equally important in “Rocky” as it was in “Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over,” when a sculpted posterior was demanded for his body-conscious crocodile trench. While Hollywood marvels over Stallone’s history of chiseled pecks and stamina equivalent to a piston, the actor’s personal stylist reveals that it’s not actually all about the body. To our surprise, it’s Stallone’s luscious locks that take up a lot of his time and focus.

So when the two sisters filmed a video campaign for the Fall/Winter 2010 collection of Twenty8Twelve line, it made sense for them to use themselves — because, really, why search for some star-studded faces when you already have them?
What does one do to become a breakthrough star? Simple: show up to a screen test in an androgynous number that’s eerily reminiscent of Phillip Lim’s tuxedo-chic aesthetic — at least, that’s what Audrey Hepburn did for her 1953 audition for “Roman Holiday.”
Alexander Wang‘s”Wall Street-inspired” Fall 2010 collection will be the first of his collections to be featured in a real, live ad campaign! And if that bit of news doesn’t pack enough wham, Wang’s premiere video ad is fronted by none other than Chanel muse and fellow New Yorker Abbey Lee Kershaw.
Herein, we celebrate the most outrageous, show-stopping, and waggish of stage costumes. Thanks to artists like Liberace and David Bowie, our history of wearable spectacles stretches back to the era of glam and back to present day.
When we heard the Sex Pistols were releasing their own perfume, our nostrils flared at the thought of smelling like patchouli layered over B.O. and booze. Suffice it to say: not everyone deserves their very own scent — though it may seem as though bottling up your very own eau is a free-for-all feat.
We called it: 2010 is the year of the butt. And since the public’s fascination over derriere poster girls Kim Kardashian and Amber Rose has no signs of subsiding, one would think clothing companies would start tailoring their measurements to both the waist and the hips. Good news: Levi’s denim company has answered our prayers and done just that.
Last Saturday, record label Mad Decent took over New York City’s South Street Seaport with a block party that ruled the pier with some of its most energetic, party-starting acts. Naturally, the music meant that there was some ridiculous street style to be seen, but among the stage performers and young spectators, it was a break dancing grandma who really caught our eye. Here are five fashion tips garnered from the grandma who still gets her groove on.
Calling all wealthy shoppers: former couple and designers Russell and Kimora Lee Simmons are hosting an “everything-must-go” sale of all items from their former New Jersey estate — and no, it’s not cheap.
The birthday girl, who turned 68 today, embodies the ultimate success story of an international designer. With over 30 years under her brand’s belt, you’d imagine that all the fashion shows, the countless hours spent at a sewing machine, and the efforts put into maintaining her success would have taken their toll on the fashion genius.
After ogling Lady Gaga‘s ethereal Vanity Fair September cover, we couldn’t help but scour the cover archives for some of nudity’s most celebrated moments — forever immortal on the front pages of fashion’s major publications.
Just because The City isn’t filming doesn’t mean that Whitney Port is taking a break from being in the spotlight. According to NY Mag’s Vulture blog, Port has been cast in a scripted, web-only series based on a Zoey Dean novel called Hollywood Is Like High School With Money. Wait, isn’t that what Laguna Beach was about?
Talk about crimes of fashion. Yesterday, former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani’s daughter Caroline was arrested for stealing over $100 in beauty products from an Upper East Side Sephora. Now TMZ reports that Richard Hilfiger, son of designer Tommy Hilfiger, was arrested in Hollywood last weekend for the alleged possession of marijuana with intent to sell.

We recently stumbled upon a news story on a drunken fight-turned-accident involving a woman, her heels, and the left eye of her boyfriend. Cringing and yet oddly inspired, we tried to imagine what pair of heels would be capable of screw driving themselves into someone’s brain.
