FYI: Couple-y Music Videos

As much as Kanye’s latest (intimate and quite obscure) music video Bound 2 baffled the world, we can’t say we were really that surprised. I mean any celeb power duo with even the slightest of egos could put two and two together since they obviously love any form of shameless self-promotion as much as the rest of us.

The desire to cast ones loved one in an exposing video comes with the drive to prove they’re hotter than ever (possibly a post-baby need, K?). After being under media scrutiny for gaining baby weight (I mean obvi), is this symbolism for a comeback of K’s own? read more…

Singers Turned Actors: Not Always A Good Idea

Beyoncé, being Beyoncé, is always the exception to the rule. Sasha Fierce, who got her roots in the music biz, was just as ethereal as a Dream Girl as she was a Destiny’s Child. Other musical starlets who weren’t as lucky to be born Mrs. Carter have had a harder time breaking onto the acting scene. (And attn, Brittney Spears, this means you.) Join us as we observe our favourite musical talents up against silver screen versions of themselves. ~Lights, camera, action~…and Queen Latifa as a nanny! read more…

HEADLINES: Tim Courts Taylor, Justin is Legal, and It Only Takes 6 Years to Ruin a Face.

Lilo hits the Today show to pimp SNL and seemingly impresses Matt Lauer. Will Lindsay 2.0 last? I’m hopeful, but not holding my breath. I’ve got one foot in and one foot out, so to speak. P.S. How awful must it be for her to look at her 2006 self and then look in the mirror? I mean that thing is busted beyond repair. (Today)

This girl must have gone to the Kris Jenner School of Fame-Hookin’. (New York Post)

YES WE CAN! (Us Magazine)

I do not feel comfortable living in a world where Justin Bieber has something Al Gore is on the waiting list for. (People)

Tim Tebow and Taylor Swift? Yikes, what a nightmare! Can you imagine all the sparkles and butterflies and cherubs that would adorn their wedding? And the pink unicorn ring barer, baring a ring that’s engraved with 3:16? And the song she will write and perform for the occasion? Or the prayer he will … BARF, BARF, BARF. (Lainey Gossip)

Even with sh*t glued to it Ke$ha’s face looks infinitely better than Lindsay’s. My brain cannot comprehend that they are the same age. (Too Fab)

Ugh the term “push present” really grinds my gears. Even so, the thought of Jess buying one for herself makes me sad. (Celebitchy)

BEST PHOTOS EVER! As much as her voice makes me laugh, I think I laugh at her facial expressions more. (Popsugar)

HEADLINES: Rihanna is a ‘Designer’, Lancome is Pure Genius, and Daphne Adds Make-up Creator to the List.

Kristen Cavallari and Jay Cutler are engaged … again. Apparently Kristen is super psyched. I’m sorry but if my fiancé dumped me right after our first engagement party I wouldn’t be planning a second one. But that’s just me. (Pink is the New Blog)

Rihanna is breaking into the fashion world with her new capsule collection for Emporio Armani. Yeah, yeah no surprise there – it was obviously only a matter of time. The most shocking part of this article? When they referred to Jessica Simpson as a fashionable pop-star. (Fashionista)

Would you wear clear heels like Dakota Fanning? My mom always said that lucite was for ‘ladies of the night’. Okay she didn’t really say that, but regardless I agree. (People Style Watch)

Get your first look at our favourite fashionista Daphne Guinness’ MAC Collection here. So now she’s an heiress / designer / artist / muse / collector / make-up creator? We can’t keep up. (BellaSugar)

The stars came out last night to support the ribbon cutting of Lady Gaga’s Workshop. Of course Blake Lively tried to steal the spotlight with her boobs in a plunging blue suit; but no one can outshine Gaga – who arrived in a full white ball gown designer for her by Karl Lagerfeld.  (PopSugar)

This is the smartest thing I’ve ever seen! Like EVER! Why hasn’t anyone thought of this before? We should have been stuffing shit in holiday crackers all along. No one wants those tissue paper crowns, come on!  Lancome, we salute you! (Selfridges & Co)

HEADLINES: Blake Annoys, Karlie Ages, and SJP Puts More Ridiculous Crap on Her Head.

Ugh! I don’t know why, but this photo just irks me! Blake Lively would be that girl getting carried out of a party honouring Christian Louboutin BY Christian Louboutin himself. She WOULD make it all about her! I wonder why he adores her so. It probably has nothing to do with the fact that she once bought 40 pairs of Loubs at a single sample sale. WHO DOES THAT? (Popsugar)

Once it hits your lips … Elisabetta Canalis got a taste of the limelight with George and now, well, she can’t help herself! She started the week off making weird comments about her relationship with ‘fatherly’ GC to the press and yesterday she got papped with her new HOT boyfriend Mehcad Brooks of HBO’s True Blood. You stretch that 15 minutes, girl! (Too Fab)

SJP went to some luncheon in Australia yesterday, the details of which are unimportant, and wore a ridiculous Philip Treacy hat. This thing is the size of a freaking planet. Why? When did ‘obstructive’ become synonymous with ‘fashionable’? (ABC News)

Good Lord, would she just stop giving interviews! Hasn’t Papa Joe figured out by now that Jessica’s sound bites are bad for business? Her latest, brilliant revelation? “The decision not to make myself anorexic was actually great for branding because when you’re really, really skinny, not everybody can relate to you.” So true, Jess.  SO true. (Lucky)

There are a few moments in a model’s career that solidify you’ve made it. Karlie Kloss has just reached one of them. The model of the moment has just earned her wings. And by ‘earned’ I mean ‘has finally turned 18’. (Fashionologie)

The world is learning more and more about Sarah Burton. For instance, did you know that the celebrated successor of Alexander McQueen ALMOST turned down the job of designing Kate Middleton’s wedding dress? So basically; did you know Sarah was ALMOST an idiot? (Fashionista)

Fendi was asked to create four new fashion gelato flavors. What made the cut? Fan di Fendi, Mozzarella, Aspirin and Diet Coke. Naturally. (Refinery 29)

HEADLINES: Alaia is Chillin' Like A Villian, Scarjo Knows Her Best Angles for Nudie Pics, and Jessica Simpson is Pregnant. Yawn.

Scarlett Johansson covers this month’s Vanity Fair and despite being notoriously private the actress reveals that THOSE photos were only intended for her ex-hubby’s eyes. As for those racy poses? Scarjo simply says, “I know my best angles.” Whoa! Scarlett and Ryan were basically recluses their entire marriage and now she’s over-sharing and he’s getting papped every 5 minutes with Blake. What’s going on? (Popsugar)

It’s official. Jessica Simpson is pregnant. The sky is blue. Bears shit in the forest. Yawn. (People)

Now this is a collaboration I can get on board with! Will Smith’s Overbook Entertainment and Queen Latifah’s Flavor Unit are set to produce a daytime talk show hosted by my Queenie! Yes, her production company is called Flavor Unit! FLAVOR UNIT! How can you not love this woman? I’m telling you Queenie is the shit. (The Hollywood Reporter)

Before the Chloe Paddington, even before the Fendi Spy there was the Fendi Baguette. Some say it was EVEN the first ever ‘It’ bag. Baguette had her day in the sun (namely on the arm of Carrie Bradshaw) but as with all things ‘It’ her popularity soon faded. Long story short – hope you didn’t donate yours to Goodwill because that bitch is back! (The Purse Blog)

Vogue Italia’s latest spread features an editorial of models riding the … subway!? In couture, no less! Yeah, because that’s exactly where I would wear my one-of-a-kind billion dollar creation; on the crusty ass subway! (The Gloss)

Geeze the more I learn about Azzedine Alaia the more I really, really like him. The sometimes Single Lady  seems like a really easy-going and chill guy. When asked about fast-fashion retailers like H&M and Zara Alaia responded, “Listen, everyone copies.” Word. (Stylite)

Where were these Brandages when we were writing our Useless Designer Things piece? (Animal NY)

HEADLINES: Diane Von Furstenburg is Cracking Down on Fake IDs, Jessica Simpson Gets Minty and Madonna Hates Hydrangeas and Being Gracious.

Oh Madge! Why do you make it so hard for me to like you? My respect is dwindling! I mean who doesn’t like hydrangeas? I love hydrangeas and would be tickled if someone spontaneously gave me some. What a diva! A diva with a fake English accent no less. And p.s. what is going on with that face? Puffy doesn’t even begin cover it! (Celebitchy)

Um did I miss something? Is Laurence Fishburne moonlighting as a nurse? Scrubs are hardly appropriate for the Venice Film Festival.  And gasp … is that a hole on his knee? Man I hope Gwyneth smacked him one. (Popsugar)

This was not Vera Wang’s first rodeo. Do you really think she is gal pals with the Kardashians? Nah she saw in them what everyone else does; dollar signs (basketball stars included). So it comes as no surprise that David’s Bridal has announced that inexpensive replicas of Kim K’s dress will be available come February. Cha-ching! (People)

Christina Ricci tells Nylon her stylist has informed her that it takes 7 years for something to be considered vintage. You hear that reality stars looking to start a fashion line? Vintage is not just an adjective! Ricci goes on to say that Alaia is her vintage brand of choice. Remember Alaia? All I can picture is Cher Horowitz being held at gunpoint and whining about her “totally important designer” dress. (Nylon)

Jessica Simpson is the newest “designer” to join the Mint family. Jessica, who is preceded by the Olsen’s and Kate Bosworth, will be launching ‘BeautyMint’ a beauty blog about anti-aging. Aging, really, cause last time I checked she was only 31 years old! (BellaSugar)

Are you an aspiring model? Want to work for DVF? Well you better have your ID ready! DVF will be carding going forward. (The Cut)
