If you have not seen Dangerous Liasons I do not know what kind of choices you are making with your life. Why are you sitting reading a website right now? Jesus Christ, stop being so dumb. Go watch Dangerous Liasons immediately. It’s about 18th century French aristocrats playing sex games because they are sophisticated and bored and well read. It’s everything you ever wanted Fifty Shades of Grey to be. More

Hey, betches! Sofia Coppola‘s The Bling Ring premieres at Cannes today! The film, which stars Emma Watson as the Worst, is based on a true story about a group of shallow people who robbed rich and famous shallow people. Zeitgeisty!
Anyway, guess what that means? Horrible early/mid ’00s fashion is back! Did you miss whiskered jeans? Louis Vuitton Murakami bags? Purse dogs? Ever-present Frappuccinos? Unapologetic venality? Paris Hilton being marginally relevant?
Hopefully you didn’t. But let’s take a stroll down the worst kind of memory lane with our carefully considered Bling Ring-inspired shopping guide. More
Spoiler! Sweetheart, you just don’t get to commit hit and runs and still qualify as a good person. I know that when it comes to Daisy Buchanan (played by Carey Mulligan) that is really confusing for some people. Nonetheless, that is true, even if your voice is so soft and gentle and lovely and you look like the cutest blonde flapper ever. But once you kill someone and flee the state, you’re still a villain. It’s just this whole thing about how villainy works. Good outfits, though. More
It’s pouring in New York today–luckily, we were walking to work clomping through puddles with impunity, thanks to our excellent Tretorn ‘Kelly’ boots. Only after conquering many puddles did we realize that a lot of you may be mulling rain boot options right this very moment. So, we decided to put together this handy guide to cute/versatile/practical and cheap rain boots for those rainy weeks of Spring when the weather is figuring out what it wants to be.
Ahead, we have selected 12 cute rain boots under $100 (though 11 of them are under $70). More
As is so often the case with our villainess style icons, I think Poison Ivy from Batman was an excellent person. I think she not only tried to save the earth – although she did! She totally did! – she was also a very good friend to Jinx, and always trying to get her to break up with her abusive boyfriend, The Joker. I don’t actually care about the earth very much, but I like people being friendly.
I also wish I had red hair.
Let’s begin stealing her entire identity More
Once again, we are celebrating a bad woman with a good sense of style. This week, it is Lucrezia Borgia! Who, admittedly, probably wasn’t as good at poisoning people as a lot of people think. No matter. The Borgias is back on, and I want to encourage Jeremy Irons – in a roundabout way – to stick with doing something that makes him seem like a sexy older man, and not a full on crazy human being. Let’s do that through this shopping guide. More
Look, I have a lot of very personal affection for Margaret Thatcher. When I heard she died, I cried. I think she did a lot to prove to the world that women in power are not weak. Do remember that she became the Secretary of Education in a time when women could not sign for their own credit cards.
She was still friends with Augusto Pinochet and she called Nelson Mandela a terrorist, so, yes, she is also a fit for Villainess Style.
She dressed really very well, though. More
Hey, it’s really nice outside in New York this week! Colder climes everywhere are just now coming out of the frost and even verging on lightweight coat weather… which is to say, it may be time for a Spring trench. The versatile, practical middle ground between winter coats and, uh, tank tops is also one of those eternally cool wardrobe essentials. So, we put together a bunch we like at a moderate price (plus one porny aspirational Burberry, of course).
Thus, cute Spring trench coats in a variety of colors and shapes, all under $200. More
Every week, Villainess Style showcases a bad woman with a good wardrobe. This week, to go along with the season six premiere of Mad Men this Sunday, Betty Draper! Who I love, very much, but who absolutely no one else seems to. Why? Why do you not want to fill her deep inner void of sadness? I don’t know. Maybe if I show you some cool dresses, and some quotes from her, you will like her. Or at least dress like her. More
Villainess Style Shopping Guide we show you how to get the best looks of the worst women. This week, to go along with Season 3 of Game of Thrones (airing Sunday!) we’re doing the ruthless and lovely Cersei Lannister. More
Spring is here and everyone is sloughing off their Winter essentials (coats, scarves, leather everything). Although we’re currently super into those crazy acid-trip prints we fawned over last week, another way to transition into Spring is stripes. Yes, we got more than a little sick of stripes last year, but now we’re ready to do it all over again. We just can’t quit them.
Ahead: bold, bright, graphic striped fashion for the assertive lady on a budget. Nothing over $150. More
Villainess Style celebrates the great fashions of horrible people. Today, The Evil Queen! Who should we do next?
Fuck Snow White, the Evil Queen had it going on. Is she the best when Charlize Theron plays her? Yes. Because Charlize Theron can turn her body into birds, and that is a cool, weird superpower. Is she the best when Julia Roberts plays her? Kind of. That was a weird portrayal. But whoever is depicting he still does a better job than whoever is depicting Snow White, because the Evil Queen is always the best. No wonder Woody Allen talks about how he had a crush on her, not Snow White, in Annie Hall.
You probably can never be as cool as her, or turn your entire body into birds. However, you can dress like her. I will help you do that. More
A few weeks ago, we were walking by a nice boutique in our neighborhood and saw they were in the midst of a huge sale. We walked in and walked out with an amazing pair of trousers–a boyish, sensible cut in an insane print. They’ve been sitting in our closet since, slowly biding their time until the weather warms up.
This is a long way of saying that our hands down favorite warm weather trend will be acid-trip Spring prints–which is a wide category that includes florals and abstract doodles and all manner of bright colors, all of which look a little off… like they’re melting?
Anyway, it’s an awesome look that can easily be achieved for less than our $150 price cap. Just don’t go wearing more than one of these babies at once (unless you want to look like a damn fashion blogger). More
