Everyone has that insufferable friend on Instagram who’s constantly posting photos of himself or herself, often with a million hashtags, always with a pout. Occasionally, the selfie is ostensibly about something else–maybe “hair” like Miley Cyrus below–other times, they’re just pure, unadulterated vanity presented without apology or explanation. Oh, and sometimes that obnoxious Instagram person you follow just so happens to be famous.
Here are 20 fashion industry luminaries who love their own reflection and the various ways in which that manifests. More
Need some costume inspiration? Heidi Klum‘s the master. More
Shirley Manson, Garbage frontwoman and winner of the coveted Person I Most Want to Be Award (1994-1999, 2013), has some excellent style, but wearing clothes and being compared with other beautiful women is not in her job description. More
It wasn’t too hard making a Best Dressed list for last night’s 2013 Emmy Awards red carpet–at least, it wasn’t hard the way choosing favorites on an MTV awards show red carpet is hard.
However, a lot of the dresses were downright weird. As we mentioned, ahead you’ll see weird bodices, strange appliqués, super exaggerated flounces and many more odd decisions on display. More
Earlier this week, we learned that Gisele Bundchen had recorded a very-not-great cover of a perfect song, “All Day & All of the Night” by The Kinks–we then promptly learned it was a charity single, each download of which benefitted UNICEF and we felt really bad about hating it (just not enough to stop). And two weeks before that? Ubiquitous Brit Cara Delevingne revealed that she can sing, in addition to model and make funny faces.
However, listening to Bundchen’s cover got us thinking: while there have been several high profile attempts by models to become singers (and actresses), how many would we characterize as successful? The answer: not a lot. More
She captioned it, “Photo blast from the past: Splitternackt!” which is German for
“Pay attention to me! Stark naked!” More
Project Runway returns tonight on Lifetime for its twelfth season, staying true to its “Let’s finish one season and start the next one right away!” policy. If you’re anything like me, you love the show and have watched since its Bravo days, but you get kind of tired of the same old stock challenges every season. The show can get pretty predictable. Thankfully it looks like season 12 will come with a few changes, like the triumphant return of a former contestant and the chance for Tim Gunn to save a designer from being auf wiedersehen-ed out of there. But I think we all know there will be a few categories of challenge we can always expect, because it’s hard to come up with new ways to stress out fashion designers. After twelve seasons, you kind of have to rework the old stuff. So let’s take a look at some of the challenges you know we’ll see. And then get ready for a night of FASHION. More
Whether you love her, hate her or still can’t stop saying “auf wiedersehen” with that patronizing twang, it’s hard to deny that supermodel and professional hot weirdo Heidi Klum is one of the most famous fashion figures in the world whose … More
Not too long ago, I was talking to a friend about whether couple tattoos are ridiculously stupid or not. In my mind, I think they are impractical and entirely different than, say, getting a dedicatory tattoo for your mother or your childhood cat, as most — indeed, most! — relationships do end. He, on the other hand, felt that my attitude signified a pessimism toward “true love” and that I shouldn’t be so skeptical about it. More
If you were like us as a teenager, you thought skintight low-rise flared pinstripe trousers from Express were the height of adult sophistication; in fact, we kind of coveted the mall store’s entire line of blazers (with pinstripes made of glitter!) and tiny matching mini-skirts. We tend to look back on these outfits and see something more like a sexy Halloween costume version of a businesswoman… More
Heidi Klum is one of those celebrities who seems just a little too appealing. She’s an Aryan uber-babe, but her image is softened by her love for her children and her dorky obsession with Halloween costumes. And now, she has proven herself courageous of character by rescuing her son Henry and two nannies from certain death while vacationing in Oahu, Hawaii. Impressive! More
“Basically, I’m playing Mrs. Robinson, and I’m seducing this cute little boy with my burger.” –Heidi Kum
Every year, the Oscars occur and every year so does the glitzy Elton John Oscars party (officially, the Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party). Celebrity attendees wore sparkly, fancy, loaned designer dresses and included Heidi Klum, Nina Dobrev, Nicki Minaj and… Chris Brown. More
Last night, we reacted to the Golden Globes red carpet. This morning, we picked up the pieces.
Predictably, there wasn’t much to like on the red carpet and there was even less to remember. Luckily, the fashion disasters came fast and furious: Halle Berry showed her midriff, Alyssa Milano went to prom, and Jennifer Lopez really wanted you to think about her naked. More
