When we think of Versace we think of couture. We think of cutting-edge design that costs us more than our annual paycheck. We think…H&M? That’s right: last night Donatella Versace unveiled her line of disposable affordable fashion for the retailer at Pier 57 in meatpacking district.
Oh! You pretty things, why can’t you stay together? After a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it five-month courtship, great American leading man Leonardo DiCaprio and cable television actress Blake Lively have called it quits. Yes, it’s for real this time — reps for both parties have confirmed the split. US Weekly broke the story, but I Read More
Three to Tango
Whenever I see Bebe, which I do for lunch every few months, I am always relieved to find that she is still wearing a headband.

The Daily News reports that Leighton Meester has sued her mother for misappropriation of funds intended for the care of Ms. Meester’s ill brother (Ms. Meester’s mother allegedly used the money for plastic surgery).

Even in the brainless world of cinematic comic books gone bad, it’s as bad as it gets—a dumb, pointless, ugly, moronic and incomprehensible jumble of botched effects, technical blunders, and cluttered chaos. Oh yes. It is also—did I forget to mention?—boring.
So, Monday was fun. Not only did we learn that embattled amateur underwear model and unwavering mayoral aspirant Anthony Weiner really did tweet that infamous crotch shot to Gennette Cordova, in addition to numerous other indiscretions conducted over social media (we couldn’t resist imagining how a certain member of–well, Mr. Weiner’s person–may have felt about the whole affair), but we also learned that Andrew Breitbart has no qualms about creating new photo ops for himself.
Fashion Week 2011

He was there to receive an award for his work in AIDS prevention, Read More
