1 Trend 5 Ways: Braids!

On his self-titled and first studio album Mario, the then-unknown R&B singer from Baltimore released not one, but TWO songs about braids. Although neither of the harmonies brought him Gangnam-sized success (in Chick With Da Braids he rhymed braids with Escalade…) Mario’s ode to the coif proved just how muse-worthy the simple hairstyle is.

Give your do a twisty upgrade as inspired by braids from the runway. The best part about going bonkers for braids? The hairstyle looks better on unwashed hair. Lazy Sundays never looked so chic! read more…

Giddy Up, It’s Pony Time

With unique hair trends like fishtail braids and top knot buns, the classic ponytail  has been swept under the rug for quite some time now. If the ponytail was a person, it would be the person who ate the same PB&J sandwich every day. With a glass of milk. It’s safe; something you choose only when there’s nothing better. BUT NOT ANYMORE! read more…

Suri Cruise is a Diva, LeAnn Rimes is a Denial Dummy and Lady Gaga Makes it Easier for me to Snoop. These Are Today’s Top Style Headlines:

Katie Holmes and Suri Cruise hit the beach yesterday to celebrate Memorial Day. They were both wearing heels … in the sand. Divas. (Popsugar)

So Marchesa finally unveiled their Playboy Bunny design and truthfully the sketch that has been circulating looks better. Who is this model, and why is she so … uh, unattractive? Sorry it’s true. And why would you sandwich her wearing your own black gowns making the three of you blend into one black blob? I’ll tell you why, because it’s always about Georgina Chapman. Check the cut of her dress; it’s more revealing than the Bunny costume, this was planned. I’m telling yah. (Stylist)

Warning: This is not for the squeamish. But I am an admitted popper so this does not bother me in the least. Behold, the most disgusting piece of jewelry you’ll never want to wear. (Huffpost Style)

Lady Gaga designs sunglasses that record video for Polaroid. Perfect I’m going to head to Costco to get a pair, they will be perfect for my Harriet the Spy kit. I like to snoop, so what? (Refinery 29)

LeAnn Rimes is really starting to piss me off, and it’s not just the capital “A” in the middle of her name for no apparent reason. Stop denying the obvious; you are too skinny! You know it, so why do you front? And why do you think anyone would believe your denials. It worked out real well the last time when you denied cheating on your ex-hubby with your new hubby. Get real! (Huffington Post Entertainment)

So apparently Claudia Schiffer’s husband is the new front-runner in the January Jones baby daddy race. If this is true and they end up together, it’s official; home-wreckers prevail and all guys are slime. (Fashionologie)

Wow, I never thought I would say this but I agree with Naomi Campbell. This is just terrible! Cadbury better fire their advertising team and hire a lawyer. (Vogue)

Marchesa Designs for Playboy, Tyra Banks is Useless and Karl Lagerfeld Hates Thongs but Prefers Fax Machines; Here Are Today’s Fashion News Updates:



Marchesa has designed a one-of-a kind bunny costume in celebration of the new Playboy Club set to open June 4th in London. Marchesa has always been a housewife project for Georgina Chapman, making Barbie dresses for Weinstein’s young starlets, so designing for Playboy is pretty much a lateral move. (Vogue)

Gwyneth Paltrow has been named the new face of Coach. So not only will she be on soccer mom’s televisions (Glee, Country Strong and Batali’s groupie through Spain) but her mass-produced, logo-bearing bags will be on their arms as well. (The Cut)

Karl Lagerfeld discusses his affinity for ice cream, chocolate perfume and fax machines and his distaste for thongs in Thirty Minutes with Karl Lagerfeld. (W magazine)

Tyra Banks is sharing her unparalleled fashion knowledge once again in another installment of Fa-Fa-Fa Fashion. This time Tyra tackles skinny jeans, through an over-acted skit, stating that big pockets on your booty make your ba donk look smaller. Genius. Who is funding this garbage? And is Ms. Wintour happy about Andre Leon Talley’s involvement with this stupidity? I’m guessing, no. (StyleWatch)

And the Golden Top Hat goes to … (drum roll) Gwen Stefani, Cameron Diaz and Aretha Franklin! The Headwear Association has announced this year’s honoured celebrities that never neglect their noggin. And everyone thought Aretha’s bow hat was nothing but a loser, who’s laughing now Aretha? Winning. (InStyle)
