Snap of the Day

A smokin' hot Jennifer Lopez launched her new fragrance "Deseo for Men" today at Macys in New York City.


Scarlett and Ryan Get Hitched

Scarlett Johansson, 23, and Ryan Reynolds, 31, tied the knot this weekend in Vancouver, Canada. Congrats to the newlyweds!

Sophia Bush Loves Her Carbs

"It's weird: In our business, I'm a size 2 and considered curvy ... It's important to remind young women, 'Listen, even skinny girls have cellulite, even Halle Berry has cellulite, and what you see in photos isn't totally real' ... You can look up old episodes of my show and see when I was being far too friendly with the craft-services table ... I'm not a waify girl and never will be. I think it's healthy when fitness experts encourage fitness rather than getting a certain body shape. And I'm Italian - I love food. I'm not goign to cut out bread and pasta and wine to be thinner." - Sophia Bush in Health magazine.

Paris S/S 09: Nina Ricci

When I was a kid, I'd somehow got the impression that Nina Ricci was for old people (yes, I got started into fashion very early). I am definitely much wiser now (either that or Olivier Theysken performed a miracle), because the Nina Ricci collection this season was anything but old.
There were lots of tulles and leggings. The color palette was a nuetral cream, pale and nude. The shape of the skirts, short and modern in the front, but soft and overflowing behind them, were beautiful. There was also a big shoulder silohoeutte thing going on that contrasted well with the soft flows of the dresses. I especially loved the white big shoulder leather jacket (left) over the super feminine dress.
The rest of the runway was interesting. There were lots of shorts and t-shirts, and leotard looking outfits (left), that looked more like day to day home wear (or ballet costumes) than ready-to-wear. Then there were super heroe inspired ball gowns. Perhaps this is an extension of Christina Ricci's gorgeous red super heroe dress for the Met Costume Institute Gala this year?

These Boots Are Made for Bloggin'

Oh, hi! I've been laying low lately, did anyone notice? I'm yawning back into the binge zone because I need to know: WHICH BOOTS TO BUY?? So many, many, many lovelies. Help me decide, won't you?

I've been dying for a pair of off-white boots since Aiken was a boy. These might be the Ones! Seychelles "Dirty Laundry" boots, $179.95. They also come in tan and black. Which brings me to my next hmmmm:

BCBGirls "Petler" boots, $178.95 with an instant $25 off = $153.95. A reader tipped me to these as a nice alternative to Loeffler Randall (aka $750) boots. These look mighty fine to me.

Steve Madden also has some tempting boots this season, and after getting so much mileage out of the pair of his I got last year, I'd gladly sign up for another pair. Such as these "Intyce" boots, $199.95. Comes in black too...which to buy?? I might have to boycott, however, based on the ridiculous spelling. Seriously, there's no call for that.

Then we have this funky number: the 80%20 "Jackie" hidden-wedge boot, $188. Don't know why, but I'm just drawn to these.

And obviously, these Frye "Sam" boots, $398, are just f'ing awesome. Someone buy for me? Perhaps with the thousand bucks I was just overhearing we should all be stuffing under our mattresses for when the world ends? Just a thought.

Heather Locklear Arrested

Heather Locklear was arrested on Saturday for suspicion of driving under the influence, according to reports.

The actress was pulled over while driving in Santa Barbara. She was held in Santa Barbara County Jail and released without having to post bail.

Locklear recently spent time in an Arizona facility where she was treated for anxiety and depression. She is currently in a custody battle with her ex-husband Richie Sambora who was arrested on a DUI charge in March 2008.


Men Lifestyle: Aston Martin DBS

Before its release, the DBS had a cameo in James Bond flick Casino Royale to tease Aston martin fans with the shape of things to come. Priced at a hefty US$260,000, this piece of British heritage is set for progress, eliminating previous design, production and financial fetters.

Expressive and explosive, the DBS will herald the new Aston Martin era. The ultimate embodiment of the DB9 coupe, the DBS replaces the muscular Vanquish as the all-new flagship with just 300 cars to be produced each year at its factory in Gaydon, UK. Quicker than any Aston road car before it, thanks to it well massaged V12 engine, it also weighs about 100kg less than the regular DB9.

Raw power aside, the DBS is dressier than its predecessors. From bonnet to boot, it displays flowing curves, subtle sills and complex surfaces that elicit instant double takes. Grand, luxurious and marked by smooth and effortless maneuvers, the front end's yawning air scoop and the rear's carbon fibre diffuser and twin exhausts certainly suggest extraordinary performance and superior airflow management.

Once inside, brace yourself for sensory overload. As a touch of extravagance, the dashboard knobs and accents are made from solid aluminum while the centre stack has been reconfigured for enhanced precision and functionality.

My Friend Neil Gets Street Spotted On Racked

This is my always-impeccably-dressed (and highly talented!) friend Neil, who was captured on Racked and braved many of their readers' absurd comments. Neil is ALWAYS dressed like this -- retro social club-chic dude -- in an unironic way, and it's always great. He's got his own haberdasher and has perfect suits. Yay, Neil!

Okay, Sorry. Even More Peacock Accessories

Actually, fuck it. No apologies. An obsession's an obsession. More peacock and peacock-inspired jewelry and accessories:
($62, Listitcafe.com)
Pretty peacock vintage cloisonne bracelet with two purdy green glass bangles, all for $62. Good deal, no?

($26, Naughty Secretary Club)
A little literal, but fun in a bubbe way.

($75, Leila, Hautestar.com)
Absolutely love these (they're referred to as "peacock," for some reason, not sure why, but I'll take 'em!), and I wish I had a big-ass house with a whole room with wallpaper in this pattern.

And I'll take these:
($75, Leila, JacquelineJarrot.com)
I'd wear all six together. Well, at least four.

($110, Vita, JacquelineJarrot.com)
I'd definitely wear the peacock-blue and the yellow studded bracelets together.

($18, Elizabeth Normand, Etsy)
Cute, sweet little peacock feather hair clip. It'd look so sweet with your hair sort-of messy and half-up, you know? Just pluck it in there and go go go.

($465, Shultz, Morninggloryjewelry.com)
This Shultz Bakelite bangle is driving me up a wall with ravenous envy. Too bad it's bonkers expensive (though it looks like it's almost on the cheaper end for Shultz Bakelite). I still say you guys OWE IT TO ME for all that $ I'm saving you, right? Sigh. This is so the kind of bracelet I WISH I could find at a flea market for like $8. Swoonfromafar!
