Chanel is one of those luxury brands, that always stuck to their classic aesthetics over the years, while also showing some great innovation.
Karl Lagerfeld never misses an opportunity to surprise. This week in Paris, Karl Lagerfeld presented a poised, elegant and mostly black take on power suiting for Chanel that included this fantastically witty take on the working gal’s briefcase.

Nat-2’s transforming shoe - an interesting idea. Nat-2’s new transforming shoe could help save time deciding what shoe to wear. The Nat-2 design looks like a regular pair of canvas shoes, similar to popular designs by the Converse brand.
But when you want to give your feet a bit of fresh air you can unzip the sole to reveal a pair of sandals.

Daily Obsesh - Winifred Grace Bangles

Daily Obsesh - Winifred Grace Bangles
Ever notice how annoying it can be to type on a keyboard while wearing bangles? They clank everywhere and get in the way ... yet, we can't seem to stop putting them on in the morning. And with good reason. They look damn good.

Yes, it's a bold statement. A true one. We like our accessories, and bangles are a must-have in our book. And right now, we have our eyes on this Set of 3 by Winifred Grace.

They're made of brass and one has a pretty turquoise-colored waxed linen wrapped around it for a splash of color. They make a great complement to any outfit and will surely annoy you while you're at work. But you'll enjoy knowing that it's worth it (and all of us feel your pain).

Price - $115.00


World of Warcraft Tips and Tricks

World of Warcraft covers a lot of territory, but here are some general tips from my years of experience playing WoW on such subjects as: the value of a plan, what to save gold for, professions, etc.

Plan Ahead

I understand you are looking for World of Warcraft tips. Well, this game covers a lot of territory, but I can provide some general tips from my years of experience playing WoW.
Hopefully, the tips I offer here will help you excel and advance your own characters to new heights.
For starters, let’s talk about exploring and leveling in general. A lot of people make huge mistakes in how they go about leveling, finding new places, completing quests, all that good stuff. I’d rather not have you make the same mistakes, so listen closely.

A complete guide to the Motorola Atrix, a phone + laptop

We go in-depth with the Motorola Atrix phone and laptop docking peripheral at CES. It’s one of our favorite new products of the show. Check it out!
CES has been full of tablet PCs and 3D devices, but few of them really stand out or solve a problem. Will TV shows like The Office truly get more exciting with a foot of depth added to them? I’m not so sure. With the Atrix, however, Motorola has gone and invented a new product entirely, one that is both exciting and potentially useful.
The Atrix is really two devices: It’s a high-end dual-core 4G Android phone, and it’s a laptop computer. By snapping the phone into the back of a new laptop dock, it powers a full-size screen and keyboard with a modified Android (Linux) display made to resemble a desktop computer.

Notice that Spanish has informal and formal ways of speaking. This is because there is more than one meaning to “you” in Spanish (as well as in many other languages.) The informal you is used when talking to close friends, relatives, animals or children. The formal you is used when talking to someone you just met, do not know well, or someone for whom you would like to show respect (a professor, for example.)
Encantado, cansado, enfermo, and aburrido are the masculine forms of the words. If the words refer to a woman or are spoken by a woman, then the final o changes to a: encantada, cansada, enferma, and aburrida
In Spain, as well as Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay and Venezuela, the Spanish language is called castellano instead of español.

Interesting Facts About Girls

Guys never notice differences in their friend's appearance unless the difference is too obvious (like a very poor haircut that leaves the scalp like a partially mowed lawn). But with girls, it's not the case... Try walking to your friend who is a girl (the phrase girl friend avoided for obvious reasons) with a small stain on your shirt which is usually unnoticeable. Chances are that you would get caught within the first couple of minutes.

Guys try their best to be caring but come on... they are not designed for that! Girls often tend to care more than what you want them to and often that makes them question every 10-15 seconds about your wellness. If you are down with fever and you let your best friend who is a girl (quite funny to type) know, chances are that you'll end up answering the phone at least 20 times that day!

Megan Fox Looking Hot in Hollywood

Amaretto-Baked French Toast

I've been looking forward to making this amazing breakfast all week. I have Saturday off - the first Saturday I've had off in I-don't-even-know-when...gonna start this weekend off proper!

3 eggs
1 cup milk
3 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons amaretto
1 loaf brioche bread, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
1 tablespoon butter (for greasing your baking dish)
1/2 cup pecans
maple syrup for serving

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, beat eggs, milk, sugar, vanilla & amaretto. Add brioche cubes and let mixture soak for 5 minutes. Spoon into a 9” x 12” well greased baking dish; sprinkle with pecans. Bake for about 15 to 20 minutes, or until golden. Pour maple syrup over & serve.

Old Hollywood: Winter Sale!

Winter is almost over, the end is in sight! The groundhog saw his shadow and it's supposed to be 63 degrees on Friday. Praise the lord. In honor of this balmy weather of late, all our winter accessories are 30% off. Hats, gloves and scarves galore. Sale is at both our Chelsea and Greenpoint stores.

Those blue suede gloves with white piping I'm wearing in the cheese-tastic photo above are drool worthy!

Behind the Scenes

One of the things we love to do most is leave our desks during the day, and go check in on the photo shoot. Why? Because it’s fun! There’s music, there’s models (plus, some cute boys, too!), there’s all the new lingerie and there’s always a killer buffet.
So, what do the models do when they’re not modeling away? They text!

Tiesheko? Tiesheko? Oh, never mind.

Hey, Quinn! Just wanted to tell you how great you looked in…oh, we’ll come back.

Stylist Tip: Above the Table

I stopped by the photo shoot and everything was looking pretty fantastic–as always! Had a little chat with my favorite stylist and Hollywood insider, Allison, who, while she’s not pinning and primping, clipping and tucking, still always seems to have fashion on the brain. Like most of the Tinseltown set, she’s prepping for the holidays and the coming season of award shows and big events. If there’s one thing to remember, says Allison, it’s this:
“When you know you have a big event, spend the majority of your time and money on your look ABOVE THE TABLE!”
For example, if you’ll be seated at a dinner table–either with a special-someone or with a group, sadly no one is going to see those $200 stilettos.

Model Behavior: Look Book

We were so excited when our crew came back from the fall fashion shoot this summer for many reasons: the Cabaret-inspired lingerie, the rock-n-roll Seduction story and for the stunning shots you see here—totally impromptu photos our crew took after the day’s “real” shoot was done. It was a completely informal and off-the cuff affair, just everyone staying late because they wanted to put together something really unique and cool (lead stylist Allison provided many pieces from her own wardrobe!). But it all came out so beautifully, we decided to turn it into on online Fall Look Book for the season!
I asked Allison how she was inspired to create these fashion-forward looks and what the “guerilla” shoot was like.

1. How did you decide to do this photo shoot?
It started when I first saw the clothes. My mind was reeling with fun ways to pair lingerie with ready-to-wear pieces. I really think it’s very much our Freddy Girl’s style, and it’s one of my favorite ways to dress as well. We have beautiful, really cool lingerie! I think it should be SEEN! I also think that it’s the PERFECT way to go from DAY to NIGHT.  Opening up a blouse or suit to reveal a bit of lace and cleavage after the conservative tone of the day is so sexy, and lets you leave your job at work!


When you really want to shine. Slip into our Seamless Hourglass Slip for a sleek, curvaceous shape and strapless support. Top it off with a glittering sequin mini dress and finish with a high-shine stiletto for a night you’ll never forget.

American Idol’s Controversial Stage Mamas Direct “The Minors” to Group Night Victory!

The Minors

If you’re watching American Idol this season then you no doubt tuned in for the emotional train wreck event known as “Groups,” when the individual contestants are forced to partner up with the competition and make beautiful, harmonious music together.  One of those singing groups,“The Minors,” is a quintet made up of 15- and 16-year-olds whose mothers, as required by law, are on set with them day and night.   The group includes: Keonna Evans, 16; Jalen Harris, 15; Sarina-Joi Crowe 15; Felix Ramsey, 15; and Deandre Brackensick, 16. I found it refreshing to watch the moms of the minors work together harmoniously as they “directed” their cooperative and talented children through a Glee-like rendition of Queen’s “Somebody to Love.”

The Stage Mamas

However not everyone got the warm fuzzys watching the stage moms in action and jealously reared it’s ugly head amongst some of the “over 18″ contestants, most notably a competing group who was set to perform the same Queen song as The Minors.  The lead singer of the second group seemed particularly peeved and charged that the stage moms coaching was an unfair advantage. But seriously, although it may have been unfair, the whining over it was much more obnoxious than the offense itself.
The best part of the night was watching the mamas jump up and down enthusiastically as their teen songbirds blew the judges away with a near-perfect performance. Judge Jennifer Lopez even went so far as to say, “They just gave the performance of their life right there!”
How the stage moms relate to each other as the competition gets more fierce may be the true “show” to watch this season.

Miley Cyrus Wins Global Action Youth Leadership Award

Miley Cyrus has won the Global Action Youth Leadership Award for her support of, not her work on, several youth programs. I guess that How to Smoke Salvia from a Bong instructional video did the trick.
Forget the scandals with the suggestive outfits, trips to 21 year-old and older bars for Miley caught in pictures, pole dancing, lap dancing a 44 year-old director, leaking her own naughty pictures, and her own father saying he is afraid what Miley is becoming, Miley has been declared a role model. Miley said she wasn’t perfect, and she’d make mistakes, but that doesn’t mean she’s a good role model for people her own age. In fact, Miley is the kind of role model young people should be avoiding.
There is only one reasonn to give someone like Miley an award like this, publicity.

Aly Michalka and Ashley Tisdale On The Cover Of Seventeen

Aly Michalka and Ashley Tisdale on the cover of Seventeen

In honor of their new show, stars Ashley Tisdale and Aly Michalka grace the cover of the October issue of Seventeen magazine, in which they talk about boys, sibling rivalry and, of course, cheerleaders.

“In high school, it was all about popularity, being with the boyfriend and all the girls thinking he’s cute,” explained Ashley as to what she looks for in a boyfriend. “Now, I am more into a guy’s personality. I like someone I can have fun with and who can be more laid-back than I am, because it calms me down. At the same time, I want to be with someone who wants to work as much as I do and who respects me like I respect him.”
Aly admitted that she isn’t dating anyone at the moment, but she has a very clear image of the guy that she wants—and she definitely wants him. “In a serious relationship I will definitely write music about a guy. I’m totally into mix tapes and I’m all about small little things,” she said. “I’ll drop by their door and just leave a gift or come over if they’re sick and make them chicken noodle soup and rent a DVD and play board games. I think those little things mean a lot to someone.”
She added, “I just need to find that guy who’s worthy of committing myself to, because I’m not your average girl. And I think a lot of guys are intimidated by girls who know what they want. I still live at home when I am in L.A., I’m really close to my family, I have a busy life and I’m super-close to my sister—so basically if you date me, you date her. And he’s either into it or he’s not.”
Both Aly and her sister AJ are part of a pop rock band called 78violet (formerly Aly & AJ). Since their debut in 2005, they have both transitioned to the world of film and sometimes even audition for the same parts. Still, Aly explained, there is no sibling rivalry between the two of them.
“When it comes to my sister and I, I think the most shocking thing that people find out about us is the fact that we’re not competitive at all,” she said. “I think it’s because I would rather her get a job than anybody else if it wasn’t me.”
As for what they learned about cheerleaders, Ashley said, “I definitely think cheerleaders have no fear. When I took the ‘Hellcats’ job I was like whoa, this is a sport. Cheerleaders deserve a lot of respect for what they do.”

Katy Perry Banned From Sesame Street

It looks like the spot Katy Perry shot for Sesame Street is never going to air.  After it got dropped to YouTube there was a backlash for parents who took issue with what Katy was wearing and thought she might be showing off a little too much for children.
We have to disagree…  I think she does a great job of being fun and playful and that the dress is not scaring any little boys for life.  Has anybody seen the slutty Barbies that are out there now!?!?!
Let us know your thoughts…  Too racy for kids or are parents waaaay overreacting?

The Golden Globes '11

Last year, The FG stayed up until 3 or so am to watch the Globes online from Edinburgh. This year, she is in London, and, frankly, people are expecting her to show up to work tomorrow morning, so she's stepping away this year. Plus, she is on the cusp of recovering from laryngitis and a serious head cold, and she's not going back to Thursday, when she had no voice whatsoever. Sorry kids, you're on your own.

(That said, so far, I'm not loving the beige theme, and black is so safe ... and wow, January is certainly keeping up with the Joneses ... and I can't resist sharing HBC ...)

Heidi Klum

Top fashion model Heidi Klum was born in Bergisch Gladbach, Germany, on June 1, 1973. During the winter of 1991, while in her late teens, a friend persuaded her to enter a national contest – “Model 92.” Over 25,000 girls had entered the contest, and over a series of shows on German television Heidi kept winning the weekly and monthly stages of the competition. In the end she won the contest overall and was given her first modeling job, which she turned down in favor of finishing school.

With a strong background in art, Heidi began studying to be a fashion designer but during her studies decided she wanted to pursue modeling as a career. In 1993, after learning the basics throughout Europe, she moved to Miami and then to New York, where she currently resides. Small jobs and constant modeling shoots kept her busy, but her big break wouldn’t come until 1998.

In 1997, she became affiliated with Victoria’s Secret as a runway model in one of the intimate apparel company’s fashion shows. She gained all sorts of recognition, most notably from Sports Illustrated magazine. And in February 1998 Heidi graced the cover of the magazine’s famous “Swimsuit Issue,” and there was no turning back. She was now the most coveted supermodel in the world.

Heidi Klum

Her modeling career led her to television, where she made her acting debut as Michael J. Fox’s love interest on Spin City. She played herself. The following year her first calendar was printed, which has now become an annual standard. In 2004, she became the host of the Bravo TV series “Project Runway,” a reality show in which contestants compete to win a chance to design clothes for Banana Republic.

Model Heidi Klum

Heidi also made a return to her roots in fashion design and now designs her own line of swimwear which has been featured in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, as well as a signature shoe for Birkenstock. She also designs jewelry and is an accomplished painter.

On the romantic front, Heidi married hairdresser Ric Pipino in 1997 and would be divorced in less than five years. She later became linked to Red Hot Chili Peppers singer Anthony Kiedis and then to Flavio Briatore, owner of a Formula-1 racing team. She has a daughter with Briatore. Recently, she married British singer Seal, and the couple had their first child in 2005. Heidi’s measurements are 35-24-34.

A supermodel with the savvy to create her own empire, Heidi Klum hit gold with a perfect amalgam of high fashion and reality TV. Born in Germany, Klum began modeling when she was just a teenager, after submitting photos to a German modeling agency on a whim. She toured Europe as a model, eventually coming to the United States, where she found even greater success — cemented by her posing for the coveted cover of Sports Illustrated in 1998. Klum became a spokes model for Victoria’s Secret, and also began taking some small roles in films, like 2000’s Blow Dry. In 2004, she became the executive producer and host of a show on Bravo called Project Runway, in which fashion design hopefuls were presented with a variety of challenges and judged on their talent and ability, facing elimination in every episode until a winner was crowned. The show was a huge hit, and Klum became even more of brand in and of herself. Klum was married to celebrity hairstylist Ric Pipino in 1997, though the couple divorced in 2002. She also had a relationship with Formula One manager Flavio Briatore, and though it did not last, the couple had a daughter together, Helene (aka “Leni”). In 2005, Klum married singer and musician Seal, who raised Helene as his own along with the couple’s other children.
