Fashion and art have always been inextricably intertwined, but 2013 took their relationship next level. But no seriously, it is kind of like what sex is when you’re single — everybody’s doing it. Jeff Koons is doing it with Lady Gaga, Damien Hirst is doing it with Alexander McQueen, Yayoi Kusama is doing it George Clooney, and Will Cotton is doing it with food (macarons, to be precise).
We’d suggest doubling up — adopting out inanimate critters can be just as torturous as parting with the real thing.
They don’t always have to mean it when they say “You shouldn’t have”.
Jean Paul Gaultier’s Christmas tree cuts a trim figure — in a corset, of course.
She was raised on LiveJournal and lives on Tumblr, she crafts memes like they’re artisanal cupcakes, and gets pissed that real cats can’t leave trails of rainbows as they soar through the air wearing Pop-Tarts.
While everybody likes music, the music junkie lives music. And when sound waves are practically your source of air supply, there’s no more stifling time that Christmas.
What to get for the guy who hates everything (except for Kim Kardashian).
Ten totally f***ing quiche gifts to buy for Ja’mie IRL.
She collected miniature hotel room moisturizers while you collected Pokémon cards, and racks up frequently flyer points at the rate you lose bobby pins. She’s a wanderlust, a globetrotter, a jet-setter… Or maybe just a geographically intrepid dreamer.
You say “steal,” I say “joint custody with unlimited visitation rights.”
You’ll have to file for bankruptcy as soon as businesses reopen, but at least she might let you steal a spritz of her new $865 Clive Christian perfume, have a go on her water-propelled jetpack, or keep a couple of the diamonds that fell off her $51,000 iced manicure.
She shows up to brunch with her yoga mat (and orders coffee if it’s a cheat day), greets you with “Namaste” and makes you Instagram her in the Eka Pada Koundinyanasana II pose. No, she’s not Miranda Kerr, she’s your yogic friend
She won’t sleep without a dreamcatcher, insists on reading your horoscope, and never throws away handwritten notes. She’s your friend The Occultist, and though she has little taste for red-nosed reindeer or Mariah Carey‘s ‘All I Want for Christmas,’ you should probably still get her a gift.
Gifts for the one who scours eBay for bottles of Spice Girls ‘Impulse’, refuses to buy music in mp3 form, never deleted her MySpace profile and has the dial up modem sound effect as her ring tone.
We always assumed that New York was the most guilty of season-pushing come holiday season, but it seems that London has beat our city to the punch.
As we’ve seen from the pictures that have emerged over the past few weeks, the White House does not skimp on the holiday decorations. Nope, no dollar store tinsel or half-heartedly hung wreaths around here. This year, the building boasted 54 Christmas trees, a 300-pound White House replica, an eerily accurate rendering of First dog Bo Obama, and halls festooned with garlands, bows, and twinkling lights a’ plenty. But how did it all come together?
So Santa has come and gone and all of the presents are unwrapped…now what? Well, we’ve gathered 25 fashion images celebrating the season’s ribbons, bows, reindeer, snow, sparkling lights, and wintery whites — one for each day of December that’s already passed. It’s kind of like an advent calendar, but you can open them up all at once!
While Kate and Will are spending their Christmas with the Middleton family in Buckleberry, and Harry is still serving in Afghanistan, the rest of the Royal family gathered at Sandringham Estate this morning in Norfolk, England for their annual holiday tradition. And of course, Queen Elizabeth looked great.
People all over the world will be donning 3D glasses this week to take in The Hobbit in its full, CGI-laden glory. But none of them wil look quite so stylish while doing so as Her Majesty the Queen, who unexpectedly modeled the look a few weeks ago while previewing her Christmas message to the Commonwealth, which is to be broadcast in 3D for the first time this year.
We used to think that we made a pretty mean gingerbread house…and then we saw this video.
