Aretha Franklin at the Inauguration via HuffingtonPost.com I am pretty sure this is as understated as the Queen of Soul gets, which, in itself, is an amazing thing. And, in unrelated news, Lost returns tonight!….
Listopad loves cool Diane (Kruger). (Yahoo! Movies.) I love how Fashion has been riffing on this jacket for the last five years. It should never go away because it is very cute and flatters many a body. DK is working gray-on-gray so gloriously here, and she gets, like, 100 bonus points for her fishtail braid [...]
Today is a very special day. Happy birthday, Martha! Like a fine wine, you only get better with age! (Note her prescient Big Love-FLDS steez. I am so into these massive, sculpted waves of hair and the Precious-meets-dowdy vibe. It’s so aggressively matronly that it’s basically punk.)
You guys remember Bobby Trendy, right? (Evil Beet Gossip) He was Anna Nicole Smith‘s interior decorator. “I tell other people what is wrong with them—I teach lessons every day.” Mr. Trendy bragged of dining nightly on filet mignon; does he fear mad-cow disease? “I repel all diseases.” This quote is from a 2002 NY Observer [...]
Usmagazine.com has a slideshow: Olsen Twins: 22 Years of Fashion!. (The exclamation points is theirs.) This slideshow is chock-full of awesome outfits, some of which I have never seen before! (It’s not like I crazily troll the Internet for pics of them … or anything … ahem.) I will post highlights here. The print on [...]
Guys. Yves Saint Laurent died. Boo. (Image from Brightstarlights.)
I just found out that Natalie Portman has a line of vegan shoes. I am digging on a particularly minimal pair of Grecian doodads myself (second row, fourth from left) — they come in a lovely shade of aubergine! (Make sure to say that in your best Olympia Dukakis drawl.) (Thanks to Fun Vampires.)
How? How do you wear black on navy and blow my mind? How do you wear a transparent shirt and not look slutty? How do you get your hair so perfectly fucked up? How!?!? I will say this: that vast expanse of collarbone is crying out for a necklace. Just a lil’ something, you know?
I have been trolling the web for weeks looking for a better picture of this outfit, but since it occurred pre-paparazzi-infested awards shows, I don’t know if one is going to turn up. The best I could find was this YouTube video. So: here is Diane Keaton accepting an Oscar for Annie Hall in 1978. [...]
Our favorite moral-quandary-inducing retailer is in some hot water. Again! Woody Allen is suing American Apparel.
You’re the cutest little Edie Laura Courtney Beale Ingalls Love Wilder I e’er did see.
This weekend I had a chance to check out the John and Yoko photo exhibit at Govinda Gallery. The small exhibit of photos by Allen Tannenbaum includes some familiar images of J&Y;, as well as some lesser known (to me at least!) photos of John’s last live performance. There are some touching photos of the [...]
2006Seriously, it can’t get any classier than this. Straight outta Dior Homme. Lauryn Hill was undoubtedly cool in the ’90s but unfortunately, she hasn’t transistioned well into the ’00s. She’s garnered some attention as of late because alleged crazy behavior, and Perez has been keeping us updated here, here and here. Regardless of how she [...]
Sometimes the most fashion-y attention DC can garner is this. The girls at Jezebel are wondering why Robin Givhan, who won a Pulitzer for her fashion musings, even cares about Hillary’s boobs (the article came out a bit ago). Seriously, worrying about boobs on the president is like talking about female presidents’ getting PMS and [...]
