#Coachella is finished. The two-weekend long corporate music festival that draws rich pretend-bohemians from all over the country is, mercifully, over and done with until next year. Last weekend’s celebrity fashion show was predictably ridiculous, this weekend’s was actually a little more tame. Perhaps the attendees were exhausted from toggling to flash the peace sign while trying not to spill beer on their $2000 handbags?
Until next year. More
It would’ve been a rather incredible miracle against the very laws of nature if Kim Kardashian had managed to stay away from cutouts for more than a few weeks, but miracles do not happen in LA. More
When I first saw this picture of Kat Von D wearing what appears to be a sheer wetsuit to a bookstore in New York City, I thought, “Well, shit. This might not be the best outfit, but it’s hardly the worst thing we’ve seen her wear, and it’s sort of unfair to judge someone for what the paparazzi snaps them in when they are out adding to their libraries. At least she’s promoting literacy!” Then I found out she wore this to her own book signing, and was appalled. More
Ah, Coachella, a time for (particularly) clueless rich people to dress up like their idea of a ’60s bohemian and enjoy the latest major label chart-topping tunes from the comfort of cushy VIP pens.
Normally, we have a hard line about not making fun of off-duty (non red carpet) famous people, but most of these press-hungry jackasses relish Coachella as an opportunity to wear their cool poor person costume: a floppy hat, short shorts, shitloads of fringe, a leather headband, a $2000 handbag and–the best accessory–a big, dumb peace sign.

Despite all the flack Gwyneth Paltrow has been getting lately for calling half a million dollars in clothing “essential,” barely feeding her family and releasing a cookbook that essentially makes air waffles and twig muffins, I have a feeling she is doing just fine. Her book, titled with gross inaccuracy as It’s All Good, is already selling incredibly well, and she’s still famous and attractive and rich. Therefore, I do not feel all that bad pointing out that the outfit she wore to a book signing at Williams-Sonoma was terrible. More
One wrong move, one unexpected hug from an over-zealous fan, one enthusiastic wave… and everything could have tumbled out in full view of hundreds of paparazzi lenses. More
There’s kind of a fine line with accusing someone (especially a woman) of dressing for attention. Something about it really rubs us the wrong way–shouldn’t people (especially women) be able to dress for themselves? If a woman is wearing a mini-skirt, can’t it just be because she likes it? The sentiment echoes barbaric ideas about women and gender and sexuality and we all know there’s enough of those in the world already. Why contribute?
On the other side of that line exists people like Brandi Granville. More
While I don’t believe people need to look sexy all of the time by any means, when walking a red carpet and hosting something like TAO Nightclub at The Venetian, as Rita Ora did this weekend, you’re kind of expected to wear an outfit not resembling a pillowcase…as Rita Ora did this weekend. More
It’s been a while since we’ve seen Katie Price around–the UK’s #1 glamour model/chav icon/eternal woman child hasn’t had much presence stateside since her reality TV show went off the air.
But! You can’t keep a venal, fame-obsessed cartoon version of a person down! More
Whenever the Kid’s Choice Awards roll around, we have our work cut out for us because the looks are generally dreadful and we generally have to be nice because kids are wearing them. Luckily, Jenna Jameson came along today and gave us a red carpet look we can really explore. More
Do any super fans out there have any insight into this–is it a reference? Or is Madonna’s latest “reinvention” Roy Rogers goes to Warped Tour?
Now, in case you’re thinking to yourself, “That’s such a festive look! I wonder why it’s familiar?” it may be because this look is from the collection that spawned those insanely offensive earrings. You have a great memory! Gomez (and her stylist) wisely opted not to wear those. More
Jessica Alba is an overall unobtrusive star, both on and off the red carpet, but this was not the case for the past week. Several ill-fitting or oversize garments along with a couple weird bottoms are making me wonder what issues (I daresay Albatrosses?) are going down in the style sect of her brain that are making her make such peculiar choices.

Dear middle school boys everywhere: if you think dressing like this will get Stephanie to let you take her to the dance, it won’t. Don’t do it. More
