#1 Crush: Our Favorite Look At Rebecca Taylor Spring 2012 Is Tough/Pretty

#1 Crush: Our Favorite Look At Rebecca Taylor Spring 2012 Is Tough/Pretty

Last Friday, Rebecca Taylor showed a watery collection featuring dewy skin and slicked-back hair. Yes, there were sequins and metallics, but the whole thing was so soft and muted… a few of the final looks even had an echo of Rodarte’s wheatfields in lovely cloud prints. I know “wearable” sounds like faint praise but as I watched this look come down the runway, all I could think was, “How can I go home and do this immediately?” More »

Gallery: Andrej Pejic And "Zombie Boy" Team Up For Auslander Lookbook

Andrej Pejic and Rico “Zombie Boy” Genest might be the two most recognizable male models working right now: Andrej for his lovely, gender-bending look, and Zombie Boy for his insane full-body tattoos (tattoo?). Hence, it makes sense that Brazilian brand Auslander would want to dress them up in its stylish (but rather basic) clothes. In addition to having them walk the runway for its Spring 2012 show in Rio, the brand made its summer catalog all about the two unique-looking fellows. People may or may not remember the clothes, what with all the zombie-ness and androgyny going on, but they are certainly neat images nonetheless. More »

Andrej Pejic Would Get a Sex Change For Victoria’s Secret

Andrej Pejic Would Get a Sex Change For Victoria's Secret

Our favorite androgynous model Andrej Pejic talked to The Telegraph‘s Hilary Alexander about his meteoric rise to the top of the modeling world, how his life has changed, and his plans for the future. When she asks if he’d ever consider “having a complete sex change,” he answers “Yes, if I was offered a Victoria’s Secret contract. You’d have to, wouldn’t you? I can’t imagine doing it any other way. But, at this point I’m comfortable with who I am now.” More power to Andrej, though we love him however he’s styled. More »

This Justin Bieber Cover Creeps Me Out

This Justin Bieber Cover Creeps Me Out

This cover for Love magazine creeps me out.

It’s one thing for tweens to fawn over Justin Bieber. He’s 16. That’s appropriate. And this month’s Vanity Fair cover called Bieber “adorable” — which, in the eyes of grown-ups, is exactly what he should be.

But for an adult magazine to put him on the cover with the caption “The Beautiful One” — all dewy and close-up — well, it’s fucking creepy. More »

Honorary LadyScout of the Week: Tilda Swinton

Honorary LadyScout of the Week: Tilda Swinton

There are a lot of actresses who are known for their range, but Tilda Swinton’s career has spanned more than film and theater, more than commercial and artistic, more than female and male. In every aspect of her art, Swinton is unapologetically intense and purposeful. She has played every kind of character, from a young nobleman in Orlando to the picture of feminine Italian elegance in I Am Love. She has appeared in Christian fables for children and comic book adaptations, Coen Brothers-helmed romps and Oscar-winning Hollywood thrillers, all while maintaining the utmost respect from her artistic peers.
