Exciting news! Starting September 7, all Emporio Armani products will be sold online! Clothing, accessories, eyewear, fragrances, jewelry...it will all be there. This is Fab, since there are only 10 Emporio Armani stores in the U.S., so you'll be able to have easy access, wherever you may be.
In the beginning, only U.S. residents will be able to shop, but Armani plans to expand the site to Europe next year and to Asia soon after that.
Before the high waists of the 70s and the low waists of the 90s, there was the drop waist of the 20s. It seems many of you were ready for a new decade of influence and Paul Poiret's liberating style of yore is here to liberate us once again. With all the flapper-inspired gallimaufry for Fall, drop waist dresses evoke a sense of ease and sophistication - a stellar combination. If you're tired of a trapeze cut or a baby doll silhouette, try one of these streamlined dresses. Come Fall, just throw one on over a chic long sleeve tee or turtleneck; it may compel you to throw on a long strand of pearls, a pair of buckled flats, a flirty little hat and read some Emily Dickinson at your local cafe. Or maybe that's just my fantasy...
The boy was named Henry Lee White, and "the new child and his mother are both feeling very happy and healthy," White's representative said.
Karen and Jack already have a 15-month-old daughter, Scarlett Teresa White. What lucky children: a great gene pool of good looks, beautiful red hair, and music talent!
I am speechless. These Sarah Hood Living Rings, $800 each, are not meant to decorate your house, but rather, your fingers. They are living plants with terra cotta pots and sterling silver rings. Though I would never walk around with a plant on my finger, they are pretty unique. But, I would have to keep my hand up just to prevent it from breaking and that's too high maintenance. And the thought of watering my finger is way weird. What do you all think?
Fab favorite SJP has been making promotional rounds for her latest perfume, Covet. Here, at Macy's in NYC, the actress looks sophisticated and a bit funky in her strapless Akris dress and strappy sandals. Though the overall mood of the look is rather Fall, she brightens it up with some layered bolt bracelets. Do we expect any less from the gal who embodied Carrie Bradshaw? I didn't think so!
Clothes are no longer American Eagle's sole interest. In looking for new ways to connect with their customer, AE has decided to develop original entertainment content through ae.com, YouTube, Myspace, Facebook, and television.
Everything from music, comedies, reality programming and dramas are in the cards, but the first project is a 12-episode series, It's a Mall World, directed by Milo Ventimiglia. In the show, American Eagle products aren't explicitly referenced, but several of the characters do wear American Eagle. Fun!
Charlie's Angels 2, Full Throttle is so much fun to watch, partially because the Angels aren't afraid to get a little raunchy! Their hijinks are ridiculously entertaining, and they have killer style to boot. These skimpy Pussy Cat Doll costumes would be great fun to adapt for Halloween with the help of a few friends.
If low key is more your style, however, take a cue from the espionage-worthy looks on the speed boat. Lots of cute denim to go around, and you'll be ready to make a stylish getaway! You never know when that might be an occupational hazard.

n. Small hard surface balls of fabric, usually found in "wear" areas of a garment. Caused by use of staple yarns and/or loosely woven yarns.
To avoid pilling, hand wash sweaters. For those that are machine washable, turn them inside out before tossing into the washer. Or buy this Brookstone Fabric Shaver, $20.
I think it's safe to judge a book by its cover in the case of Marilyn Minter's debut book, $38. In her own way photographer and painter Marilyn Minter sees through material possessions; she sees them as a canvas for splattering such items with mud and sweat. Confused? She puts it, "So many images we see every day are fake looking - if there's any dirt at all, it looks like it's been put on with tweezers."
She opens our eyes to the fakeness of all the glamorama, which she has discovered through a career spanning nearly 40 years. Today her paintings and, increasingly, her photography, expose the ultimate failure of fashion and glamour to hide either our flaws or the dirty underside of human beauty. Sounds like some intriguing eye candy - who says fashion isn't heavy?
