See Marilyn like you’ve never seen her before.
There’s a secret part of us that loves Naomi Cambell when she’s at her tantrum-throwing worst — but there’s no denying that she’s totally endearing when at her best. Case-in-point her appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno in 1996.
Human quote dispenser Karl Lagerfeld is never short on ways to shock. But the most jaw-dropping things he says/does/creates aren’t spectacular haute couture gowns or spectacularly galling non-disses. They’re things like walking among the common folk, entering a supermarket or… Eating a burger.
There’s a reason all our favorite supermodels have been resurfacing in the glossies recently. With the exception of Cara Delevingne, they just don’t make ‘em that damn sassy any more.
“I never aspired to wear big labels the way young people might today,” Carine Roitfeld told V Magazine. “I thought high fashion and fashion magazines were for old ladies and not me.”
NOTHING is the answer to the rhetorical question posed in this amazing video of the late, great Michael Jackson and his BFFs performing What More Can I Give? back in 2001. Besides a near-comprehensive roundup of early ‘90s talent, it also features three pairs of truly spectacular patriotic pants courtesy of Destiny’s Child.
Rather than ruminating on all the amazing live music you’ll be missing this weekend in favor of an accidental sunburn from the farmer’s market and some light retail therapy (well, that’s what our weekend looks like), turn that frown upside down with pics from the G-fest going back to nearly a decade ago. Remember a lady named Gaga? She was there! And so was Kate Moss!
Cindy Crawford has some of the most widely-acclaimed publications under her belt. There’s Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Vanity Fair, and of course, the DeKalb Nite Weekly. You may think the latter doesn’t stack up to the rest, but considering it’s what gave the supermodel her big break, we think it’s time to show the weekly some love — and Cindy does, too. See the vintage pic after the jump.
Remember the time when people started seeing a pretty brunette hanging around with her bud Paris Hilton, and everybody was like, “Who’s that? Is she famous?” Let’s take a look back at some of Kim’s more interesting looks from the past.
The 1950s were an enormously influential decade for American style, and 1950s hairstyles shifted accordingly. Post-WWII, the US was rebuilding its economy and moving (haltingly and often painfully) towards social change. The dynamism and simultaneous retreat to more conservative times are both apparent in the era’s styles, which veer wildly from rockabilly hair to pixie cuts and primly waved bobs. Check out some of the decade’s most prominent highlights here.
As the A-list gets primped and pampered (and punked out) in preparation for tonight’s Met Gala, they can take comfort in the fact that the tools wielded by their hair dressers don’t look like this.
The white smoke has billowed in Vatican City and the new Pope has been named, but thirteen years ago, we got an idea of what John Galliano’s version the Catholic leader would look like during one not-so-Christian Dior runway show.
Long before she was making wannabe models (and her fellow coaches) quiver in their stilettos on her reality show The Face, Naomi Campbell was gracing our small screens in a far less imposing role: in a three-episode run as Julia on The Cosby Show in 1988.
On the eve of Alexander Wang‘s first show as creative director of Balenciaga (eeeek!), we want to take you back to October 1997, when a sprightly young up-and-comer named Nicolas Ghesquière showed his first-ever collection for that very same house.
On Thursday, Paris Hilton posted a hilarious #ThrowbackThursday picture on her Facebook page: her family’s Christmas card from when she was 15.
Since you’ve all been so good this year, we’ve got a big treat today: a double whammy of the Royal Family at Christmas!
Oscar de la Renta is just so gosh darn charming in this 1984 interview with Barbaralee Diamonstein that we kept forgetting just how old the clip was — until, that is, they zoomed out and we got a full look at his interviewer’s outfit: a brown, quintessentially Eighties, ruffle-necked dress.
Long before before Alber Elbaz turned the house of Lanvin into what it is today, there was founder Jeanne Lanvin. She was responsible for creating très feminine designs, and the house recently unearthed a video of the master at work.
Everyone recognizes ’90s icon Lisa Frank‘s colorful smattering of rainbows, unicorns, and teddy bears. But did you all know that Esquire‘s Sexiest Woman Alive Mila Kunis used to shill for the brand? Nope, neither did we!
In the spirit of Sunday Funday, here’s a little clip that’s just for fun: a vintage makeup video tutorial from the 1940s. This is how our grandmothers did it!
