I Bet You’ll Like Derek Lam’s Kohl’s Collection

Sometimes well-known high-end designers do this thing called a "capsule collection" of special, limited-edition pieces for a mass retailer, commonly priced far below their main label. The phenomenon has taken off in the past few years, pioneered by companies like Target and H&M. I try to avoid paying attention to designer collaborations, because there's a new one […]

Is Apple Bringing Back the Snap Bracelet?

Even though fashion icon Diane Von Furstenberg got gimmicky with Google Goggles at her Spring 2013 runway show (according to recent news, the tech company has since tapped eyewear brand Warby Parker to chic up the futuristic glasses) and designer Vivienne Tam partnered with HP in 2008 on a special-edition notebook meant to appeal to the […]

‘Girls’ Actress Zosia Mamet is Blonde Now

Image via WENN Actress Zosia Mamet plays the best character on Girls (Shoshanna) but she dyed her hair blonde so I guess I don't love her anymore. Sorry. I just don't appreciate how she's trying to look like everyone else. That shouldn't reflect on how I'll feel about her character, but it will because I know […]

See Michelle Obama’s Second Official White House Portrait

Image via White House Flickr; official portrait by Chuck Kennedy I am trying to find an interesting angle to this whole "The White House just posted Michelle Obama's second official portrait to Flickr" post, and I've got nothing, which must mean this is a successful expression of the form.

Does Rihanna’s River Island Collection Look Better On Cats?

Rihanna showed her River Island collection as part of London Fashion Week and the critical reception has not been positive. It hasn't even been neutral. The Daily Beast was particularly blunt, using adjectives like "hideous," "slutty" (okay, Tom Sykes, is that like, an official fashion term or something you just like to say about what […]
