GAH! Aside from the EVERYTHING that's wrong north of her knees, Jennifer Connelly is also redirecting the traffic of misery south of her ankles with these moiré-inducing Balenciaga heels.
For those of you who don't know what moiré is -- and don't worry, I knew that it existed, but I wasted like 30 minutes looking for the term in Google -- it's that terrible pattern you see on TV, especially when someone's wearing tweed or houndstooth. It makes a jumping effect, and it's created by two sets of patterns that basically overlap and make your eyes wanna barf.
Just like so!
Anyway, there's your science lesson for the day! Still, it's NO excuse for these heinous zig-zag heels!
From IG Trendcentral:
"Launching this April, Finnish textile company Marimekko is partnering with H&M to do a collection for women and children that will include tunics, dresses, hats, and bags in their signature striking prints. We’re hoping their classic tulip patterns will make an appearance."
Now THAT I might stand in line for and risk mass stampeding!
Katie Holmes showed off a new bob while accompanying her husband Tom Cruise at the 59th annual Bambi Awards in Dusseldorf, Germany, Thursday. Cruise won an award for his willingness to take risks in his films, including his latest flick, Valkyrie, which centers on the failed Operation Valkyrie to assassinate Adolf Hitler.
Mysterious frequent commenter "Poop McGee" sent me a rip-roarin', rootin'ly tootin'ly massive list of promo codes. I've tried to strip out the suckier ones (Nascarfansite.com! Rave!). Anyway, GO! SPEND LIKE THERE'S NO TOMORROW!

Target's newest designer collaboration is with Jessie Randall of Loeffler Randall. I am always on the look out for ballet flats and these metallic ones are adorable. The matching bags are cute to. Available at Target stores December 30th.
Jennifer Love Hewitt is engaged to Scottish actor Ross McCall. "They got engaged last week," her rep confirmed. The couple is currently vacationing in Hawaii. Hewitt's antique engagement ring has been in Ross's family for over 100 years. Her rep had not details about the wedding date.
Kirsten Dunst has signed on to front Miu Miu next season. The actress recently shot the spring/summer 2008 campaign. Miuccia Prada has always been fond of using celebrities for Miu Miu campaigns - previously casting Kim Basinger and Lindsay Lohan - although last season model Laeticia Casta starred in the ads. Miu Miu is set to expand further in the U.S. next year with new stores planned for New York and LA.

Current retro men’s styles include men’s logo T-shirts, patterned men’s button-down shirts and motorcycle-style men’s jackets. Who knew that the men’s styles that you loved in the past would once again become fashionable? A great collection of the latest fashion clothing for men can be found at various websites with simple search.
Man Fashion is not just about what you wear however, but how you wear it as well. You could take the exact same male clothing and put it on two different men and it could look completely different. No matter what type of men’s fashion clothing it is, the fashions will look better on a man that is in shape than a man that it is out of shape.
Taking care of your body is simply a matter of making a few minor changes to your lifestyle such as diet and exercise. Working out a few hours at the gym every week won’t kill you and you will definitely see a difference in your body. You’ll feel better about your body, be more confident and, therefore, look better in whatever men’s fashions you choose to wear.
When developing your own personal men’s style the most important thing to remember is to stay true to yourself. Just because a men’s fashion trend looked great on your favorite actor doesn’t necessarily mean it’s for you. If you’re uncomfortable in it, chances are it isn’t the style for you.
So be your own style from today onward.
1. Bottega Veneta - is the leader in luxury fashion best known for its signature leather goods, including handbags, luggage and leather wallets.
2. Dolce & Gabbana - A luxury brand of unapproachable desirability distinguished for its high sartorial content and original styling of the apparel.
3. Dsquared - Make popular by rough-and-ready casual wear of their own style.
4. Etro - The mEtro ruler of thought combines action and contemplation, work and leisure.
5. Fendi - With the theme of less is more for Spring 2008, Milan
6. Gucci - The brand speak for itself
7. Jil Sander - the style with understated and sleek designs, luxurious fabrics and her perfume line
8. Paul Simth - His moto: "I give classics just a little kick"
9. Prada - Don't require any introduction
10. Raf Simons - His recent message for Spring 2008 "Forget MySpace, and find your space in the material world"
11. Veronique Branquinho - A native of Belgium with her own style.
12. Stephan Schneider - style with an edgy and urbane

While I do agree with one Popsugar commenter, who referred to MK's Giambattista Valli white frock as a "Huggies" dress (tee!), I LOVE the fun, much-ballyhooed hot-pink stilettos (also Giambattista Valli) Mary-Kate wore. The dress is, as most anything she wears over a size 3T, humungo on her, the shoes work. And considering some of the batshit-nuts get-ups she often wears, this is seriously tame. And yes, they're an impractical 18 inches tall or something, but doesn't she have someone she pays to carry her? Observe the look in this less scowly shot below. Yay! ... Now if only she'd get rid of that baby fat already! HOW WOODE!
Jessica Seinfeld also could've wrapped Mary-Kate around her waist for a "pop" of color!
Yes, it's bit flamenco-y, but Jennifer Connelly is spellbinding in Oscar de la Renta, and it fits her so well on top that she actually manages to stand out from the dress and not look like the dress is wearing her. Minus several points though for the Bert and Ernie brows.
Dita Von Teese continues to scare me. Am I supposed to care that she fucked Marilyn Manson?? She reminds me of a slutty Mona Lisa. And what's more, Eve appears to be growing out of the side of her Marchesa gown...
... While Blake Lively appears to be playing an invisible harp growing out of her head while doing an impression of Cher.
Kate Spade may be an arbiter of questionable accessories and often boring little handbags, but she's CLEARLY doing something right since she's a billionairess. She knows what's up, right? So why is she wearing metallic blue ankle straps with this purple pup-tent of a dress? And the belt looks like those tie-down thingies you use to hold down your Igloo cooler to the top of your Rav4. Perhaps she had to dash off to a camping benefit straight away!
Michael Stipe is flashing you. (I smell a LOL Cat in here!)
Can we PLEASE just stop humoring Parker Posey? Yes, she does a funny Southern accent and was hilarious as the Busy Bee lady and great as a creepy fake Jackie O. But she's clearly NUTTY! Just swap out her bag with the New York Times, and you've got suburban "Just Grabbin' The Paper" couture. Seriously, you should not sleep naked in a hotel, lest the fire alarm goes off in the middle of the night and you gotta bolt. Should that occur, you should definitely have a poly-sateen bathrobe on hand.
Okay. Beddy-bye time for Tams!
