As far as the Gossip Girl cast goes, everyone (fairly) focuses on B and S. But let’s discuss V’s outfit from yesterday. More
Topic: Celebrity Endorsements
Every day, there’s another celebrity hawking wares, from skincare lines to diet pills to home decor. Celebrities can make millions of dollars from endorsements, especially if the celebrity is well known and popular. Just last week, Julia Roberts made $1.5 million from appearing in a 30 second commercial for the Italian coffee brand Lavazza. In the ad, Roberts sips the coffee and doesn’t utter a word. More
Celebrity endorsements have long been a mutually beneficial relationship – a brand gets the cachet of being associated with someone famous, and the celebrity gets paid handsomely for use of their name and likeness. But for every great celebrity endorsement … More
Earlier today I wondered if it was shallow to dismiss fashions I might wear because I disliked the celebrity associated with them (I keep saying “associated with” because “designed by” just seems dubious). Now I turn my question over to you. It strikes me as shallow to avoid, for example, a good pair of jeans that make your ass look great because Jessica Simpson inked some deal somewhere saying she’ll show up at stores and promote them as her own, but realistically she probably had little (or nothing) to do with their design. Call me petty, but I still couldn’t get past her involvement. I’m so petty in fact I feel compelled to assert these examples are all totally hypothetical because More
Today’s Lust Object proved challenging in going with today’s theme of whether or not celebrity-designed collaborations are ever a viable fashion option. Granted, this cape doesn’t strike me as particularly Beckham-esque… if anything, its breast-concealing capeness is intuitively anti-Beckham. But no matter. More
I get it. Every celebrity now has to be “multihyphenate” and have their own skin care line and their own home furnishings company, just because. But sometimes slapping your name on every product that exists doesn’t always improve a celebrity’s … More

In her column in the August issue of InStyle (the one with Courteney Cox on the cover), actress and fake job haver Rachel Bilson mentions that she loves bodysuits – the ones that are basically leotards with snaps at the … More
Over the weekend a friend introduced me to her new boyfriend. He’s a personal trainer and does some modeling on the side. He mentioned that he’s featured on the box and appears on the infomercial for some “ab-blasting machine.” He … More

Lindsay Lohan posted the above tweet today. I guess hastily adding the word “ad” at the end of a tweet means it’s a paid tweet, right? And if it’s a paid ad, then I seriously doubt she actually “bought” that … More
Apparently, Brooke Shields’ dream in life wasn’t to win an Oscar or be the first female president: it was to design a fur coat. And now her dream has come true! The actress traveled to Denmark to design her very … More
That would be Pond’s Cold Cream, of course. Just like some heirlooms are passed down through a family, the love of Pond’s was passed from my grandmother to my mother to me. My grandmother lived to be 75 and still … More
These days you’re not a real celebrity until you have your own fragrance and your own clothing line. Country singer Faith Hill, who is a pretty big star, is sort of disgruntled about the fact that nobody has invited her … More
Hey, if celebrities can have their own perfumes, discount clothing lines, and leggings collections, why not their own line of custom wigs? Vivica A. Fox, who I’ll always love best for being a picky, Mean Girl-y judge on ill-fated reality … More
