While low hanging fruit like Kim Kardashian and Heidi Montag are also known for their love of sexy Halloween costumes, all are but pawns in the court of Paris Hilton–the Queen of the Sexy Halloween costumes (no, seriously, she even went as a Sexy Queen of Hearts once). In fact, it’s not Halloween for Hilton unless there’s visible garter belt.
Let’s take a look at some of her Sexy Halloween Costume greatest hits… More
For many of us, Halloween is a time for making the most minimal effort possible to find a costume and proceed to get drunk in it. For celebrities, however, it’s a chance to be photographed, to feel validated, to bask in the attention of the little people.
…And the quickest, easiest way to do so involves a garter belt (or a nipple pasty). Here are 25 (deeply ridiculous) celebrity sexy Halloween costumes. More
Meet 18-year-old Ashley Horn, totally congruent with the Lohan mold of existential agony, self-righteous obliviousness and pathological lying. Ashley’s mother Kristi had a “brief affair” with Michael Lohan in the early ’90s when he was married to now ex Dina–and after 18 long mortifying years of anonymity, Horn’s decided to make a name for herself by undergoing a series of plastic surgeries to look more like Lindsay.
Only, like, a hotter Lindsay. No, seriously. More
Miley Cyrus continues her massive press tour to alienate the entire world today, with a just-dropped cover of Rolling Stone, upon which she is naked. She is also topless in almost all of the photos inside the magazine. Of course. The accompanying interview is replete with what has now become Cyrus’ rather particular brand of outrageous obliviousness, self-mythologizing and brazen ego. She’s like Lady Gaga smashed together with Kanye West with a sprinkle of twerking!
…Oh, and a shitload of name dropping. In fact, most of the interview is just Cyrus pointing out which famous people really admire her as an artist–and then quoting them. Let’s begin. More
While there’s been a lot of talk about the absence of women of color on catwalks, there’s been precious little progress. Agonizing, incremental progress. Black girls are still given token slots on runways (usually two, at most) and the same goes for Asian women. When multiple black girls are cast, it’s often as a statement–like, for example, when Alber Elbaz sent a troop of black models clad in tropical prints down Lanvin’s Spring 2011 runway. As a finale.

What’s a better term for “logowhore”?
We prefer to avoid using the word “whore” pejoratively–but, while famewhore can easily be substituted for fameball, there is no other word than “logowhore” that quite neatly conveys the appropriate amount of derision we have for people who bathe themselves in designer logos. More
Hermès insists it “can be used for play”–and thank fucking god for that. Who’d want a branded blue basketball museum piece?
…Well, the sort of person who’d want a Chanel surfboard, probably, or a Louis Vuitton soccer ball or an Alexander Wang jump rope. Which all exist, obviously–and there’s more in the gallery ahead. More
This weekend, Heidi Klum Instagrammed a naked photo of herself–her most recent in a string of partially nude photos the model shares across her various social media accounts. This inspired us to go in search of some of Instagram’s other famous exhibitionists–after sifting through the accounts of dozens of celebrities on the photo sharing app (and irreparably torching many brain cells), we learned some startling truths–Audrina Patridge‘s feed isn’t remotely the bikini extravaganza you’d expect–and some less startling ones, like who belongs at the top of the list… More
First of all, good god. Who ARE these people? Why does Rob Kardashian even exist? We realize we’re complicit, but still. More
NO MORE FINISHING BUTTERS FOR YOU. More
Yes, that would be the image of a man–clad in various belts in a seeming allusion to the gimp or something like it–choking a woman with a belt. Again, a man choking a woman with a belt… as a means to sell pricey belts. Violence against women… as a cool, sexy marketing ploy. More
A long, long time ago, the house of Ed Hardy flourished. A-List celebrities like Tara Reid, Jessica Simpson‘s dad and some members of the Pussycat Dolls adored the house’s wares and were photographed by many paparazzi in sparkling, tattoo-inspired trucker hats. That time has passed. More
A somewhat shocking video recently uploaded to YouTube shows several Buddhist monks wearing flashy aviators and toting Louis Vuitton luggage–not behavior you’d expect from men who have devoted themselves to a religion of asceticism.
They’re also, of course, traveling by private plane. More
The frothing, megalomaniacal version of the Monopoly man from your dystopian nightmares has some strong feelings about the news that Miss World will be forgoing the bikini competition of their Indonesian leg this year, so as not to “offend Muslims in Indonesia” (per the always-reliable and even-handed Gretchen Carlson).
