7 Red Carpet Fashion Disasters Involving Neon

7 Red Carpet Fashion Disasters Involving Neon

Earlier this week, we admitted that we didn’t despise neon as much as we once did–because its popularity has petered out in a big since its peak ubiquity in 2012.

…But, while searching for examples of successful neon looks–many of which we found!–we also came across all the ones that made us fear and loath it in the first place. Fergie, Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, Ke$ha and more ahead. More »

Narrowing Down The Most Ridiculous Looks From The 2013 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show

ast night saw (the filming of) the 2013 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show–the show itself doesn’t air until December, but that’s roughly how long it’ll take to make sense of what happened.

Our favorite event of the year took place last night: the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, the annual body glitter bonanza/fashion show that shows no fashion but insists on being called as such. For years, we have looked forward to sifting through the most ridiculous looks from the event and trying (desperately) to parse them. But really, who doesn’t love body glitter?

Anyway, we’ll get around to the actual 2013 collection itself in a moment but first let’s all take a moment to behold Taylor Swift‘s performance look! More »

7 Supermodels With Notoriously Bad Attitudes

7 Supermodels With Notoriously Bad Attitudes

Earlier today, fashion photographer Bruce Weber revealed that the only model he’s ever kicked off set was (his now-friend) Cindy Crawford–the two were working on a Revlon shoot back in the day and apparently the young supermodel was so rude to the crew that Weber lost his temper and sent her home. Crawford in her ’90s heyday could get away with just about anything, though, so the ejection probably came as a cruel surprise.

10 Red Carpet Looks That Prove Neon Isn’t Always Completely Horrible

10 Red Carpet Looks That Prove Neon Isn't Always Completely Horrible

About a year ago, we rounded up “10 fashion trends that need to die right now”--and arguably our biggest vendetta was against then-hugely popular neon (well, and fucking sneaker wedges). Since then, the look has definitely lost its ubiquity on the streets–now, we see the occasional Fluro and that’s about it.

…Maybe because it’s not everywhere anymore, tiring eyeballs wherever it goes, we’ve softened a bit on our stance. Here are 12 red carpet looks that make a surprisingly compelling argument for not banning the shades outright.

Also. Some of the looks here are more neon than others. This was hard. More »

Jessica Chastain has turned in a string of startling performances since landing on Hollywood’s radar with Tree of Life–she’s been hugely in demand as an actress ever since.
