Pixie 101: Making the Cut

Just in case you’ve been living under a rock for the past two years, let me tell you that the pixie cut (ie. short, short hair) is all the rage. Miley and JLaw are sporting edgy do’s that are the epitome of cool, while Emma Watson and Carey Mulligan together created a vision of girlish sophistication with their short cuts circa ’11. All of this celebrity beauty can make you want to follow suit and make the cut: but are you ready? read more…

Before Rihanna Posed Naked Under Light Projections, These Models Did

Imitation is the finest form of flattery, right? That said, sixties photographer John French should feel really, really flattered. Check out the original forty-year-old photos that inspired Rihanna’s sexual black and white scenes in ‘You Da One’. read more…

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: Dina Lohan is Stupid, Iris Apfel is Mean, and Kanye West’s Fashion Career Isn’t Over?

Terry Richardson is one busy man with many, many doppelgangers. While shooting Beyonce recently for Harper’s Bazaar Terry took a time out to shoot some outtakes of Queen B fooling around with his signature glasses. This photo is now my desktop background. (Popsugar)

Whoa! Is Iris Apfel starting to lose it? They say dementia can manifest itself in aggression and I say that ‘they’ are right! The plagiarizing jewellery designer recently told the Telegraph that she wants to throw up when walking down 5th Avenue now because all the fat and ugly people don’t wear enough clothing. She goes on to say that stretch jeans over size 10 should be outlawed. Wow that’s gutless! Geeze, who peed in your cornflakes Iris? (The Cut)

Why am I not surprised that Dina Lohan has stooped to a new low? Because she’s a terrible person, that’s why! It seems mommy dearest is shopping around a personal memoir about Lilo’s partying and legal woes. Right, because that’s just what a good mother should do! Seriously, Mike and Dina never gave Lindsay a chance, did they?Throwing their daughter under the bus is their M.O. (Refinery 29)

So the Rolling Stone thinks that Kanye West’s fashion career isn’t dead … yet. It’s a point of view not shared by many, however, the article explores how he could have been more successful and ultimately concludes Kanye shouldn’t give up after only one attempt. No! Don’t encourage him! I don’t know if I can endure another disaster like that! (Rolling Stone)

Dior seems virtually unaffected by John Galliano’s racist tirade and departure from the brand. In fact, revenue is up 21%. Geeze people are weird, it’s like public indecency doesn’t even exist anymore. It’s just like when Kate Moss got caught doing coke and her career experienced a resurgence, although, I guess John Galliano’s career is still in question but I’m betting he will be just fine! (Fashionista)

So you know that depressing voice-over at the beginning of Rihanna’s We Found Love music video? That woman’s voice with the English accent, you know? Yeah it’s totally Agyness Deyn. (NY Fashion)

Good things come in pairs, right? Is that even an expression? Well, either way that doesn’t apply here. Because when handbags come in twos (specifically in two identical designs) it’s called plagiarism. I wonder how Marc Jacobs will respond. (The Purse Blog)

HEADLINES: Fashion Week Fights, Karl’s Delusions and Rihanna's Naked Body!

Time to celebrate in your Chrissy Loubs! The Design Museum in London is planning a retrospective that will document Christian Louboutin’s 20-year career. Although I’m pretty sure I could sum it up in 2 words; red soles.  (Vogue UK)

New York, London and Milan are still at war over fashion week dates and this shit is getting confusing! Good thing Fashionista offers some clarity with their point-form version of the drama and boy is there drama! Not to worry though, referee DVF is “convinced it will be resolved.” (Fashionista)

Editors Only! For the first time ever all of the International Vogue editors will be together in one place. (How has this not happened already?) Anna, Franca, Alexandra and Emmanuelle will all attend Japan Fashion’s Night Out. How will that much ego fit in one teeny tiny Japanese-style room? I’d love to be a fly on the wall for this one! (The Cut)

Did Mariah Carey just pee her pants? Probs! Because Sanrio and Forever 21 are teaming up to create an exclusive Hello Kitty inspired line. Everything from headbands to handbags priced from $3.80 to $30! Yay for anime! (Racked)

Karl Lagerfeld’s oversaturation continues as he releases his expensive glassware line. Huh? Oh, and it doesn’t end there! Karl is also under the impression he invented ‘the coaster.’ Of course he did! (Styleite)

Kate Moss walked in Louis Vuitton’s Paris Fashion Week Show not because she was cast but because she requested to. Yes, that’s right – when Kate wants to walk she WALKS! Oh and she closed the show; NO BIG DEAL. (Fashionologie)

Rihanna is Esquire’s Sexiest Woman Alive! And to celebrate she got naked in front of the camera. Sorry angry Irish farmer! Also, can RiRi just stop talking about Chris Brown, it seriously causes me to cringe and convulse. (PopSugar)

HEADLINES: Rihanna Gets Naked, Barney’s Does Karaoke, and George and Stacy Tear Up TIFF.

So apparently the Sex and the City Prequel “The Carrie Diaries” is a go. Seriously? The CW is set to air the show and its rumoured Josh Swartz (The O.C., Gossip Girl) will head up the project. Oh good! So we can expect a lot of hype followed by a visually stunning first season and then mediocre plot-lines until ratings dwindle. (US Magazine)

Rihanna’s new print ads for Armani underwear have finally been unveiled. RiRi rocks a Mia Farrow-esque pixie cut in the shots and not much else. Fun fact: both Rihanna and her predecessor Megan Fox have been linked to Shia LaBeouf. I love Hollywood incest. (Daily Mail)

George Clooney and rumoured girlfriend Stacy Kiebler are in town for TIFF and hit up the Vanity Fair Party at the Thompson Hotel on Friday. George looked as dapper as ever however Stacy has looked better. That ratty hair and terrible ruffle-y dress? What was she thinking? This was her moment, her coming-out party and she couldn’t spring for a reputable stylist? I’m at a loss. (Just Jared)

She’s at it again. My favourite outspoken Vogue editor Franca Sozzani shares her thoughts on Carine Roitfeld’s celebrity and why she supports John Galliano. Please don’t ever learn how to filter yourself girl! (Fashionologie)

I’ve said it before and I will say it again; whispering along to music is NOT singing! You hear me Eva Mendes? (The Cut)

Anna Wintour laughs! No, seriously! There is photo evidence. (Refinery 29)

Ever since watching Valentino: The Last Emperor I have been obsessed with Valentino and Giancarlo. Beyond obsessed. Unfortunately sightings of them are rare these days as Valentino continues to enjoy his retirement; which pains me to no end. And then this happened!!! Is it my birthday? Because it sure feels like it! Carine I bow to you again. (Styleite)
