Nina Garcia, I’m Sorry…But You’re Out

nina Nina Garcia, Im Sorry...But Youre OutJust days after Project Runway said “Auf Wiedersehen” to Bravo, Elle Magazine tells PR judge Nina Garcia she’s out.

Nina, who has served as Elle’s fashion director since 2000, “was in the office on Friday morning, but by the afternoon, sources close to the building say Hachette’s Midtown offices were abuzz about the rumor.”

This story continues to unfold – so though no official reason has been given for Nina’s departure, I’m sure more salacious details will be forthcoming.

It remains to be seen if/how this breakup will affect her position as Project Runway’s resident style guru.

From Edward Scissorhands To Salute Your Shorts

wino From Edward Scissorhands To Salute Your Shorts
I know this isn’t beauty related, but I felt the need to share. So even though I could care less about Winona Ryder – when I saw this pic of her boyfriend, Blake Soper, I thought he looked vaguely familiar. Turns out he was on that Nickelodeon show Salute Your Shorts back in the day.

Remember that show? Don’t pretend you don’t know what I’m talking about.

OMG, Winona! One day she’s got the hottest Hollywood bachelors in her little black book (remember when she dated Matt Damon?)…next thing you know, she’s (allegedly) betrothed to Salute Your Shorts kid.

Lesson learned: Winona should have used her sticky fingers to hold onto Johnny Depp, rather than shoplift at Saks.

Michael Kors Is Just Like Us

michael kors Michael Kors Is Just Like UsFashion genius Michael Kors shares his Wednesday morning ritual with Style.com. Like me, he’s addicted to tabloid magazines. Just when I thought I couldn’t love MK more, he gives me one more reason to add to the lengthy list. Don’t you just wanna put Michael in your purse and carry him around with you all day? Or is it just me?

It’s A Lipstick Jungle, But The Shades Are All The Same

lj2 Its A Lipstick Jungle, But The Shades Are All The Same
Lipstick Jungle, the new primetime series based on the 2005 Candace Bushnell novel of the same name, premiers tonight at 10pm. This highly-anticipated show about has drawn comparisons to Sex and The City. And its stars (Brooke Shields, Lindsay Price, and Kim Raver) have been on quite the media blitz lately, including several promotional appearances at Fashion Week’s hottest runway shows.

How many of you will be watching? I’m still on the fence. On the one hand, SATC is one of my all-time faves, and I’m hoping that Lipstick will be a satisfactory successor. But at the same time, why is it that this genre always seems so white-washed?

Yeah, I am aware that Lindsay Price (whose mom is Korean) is on the show, and Cashmere Mafia’s got Lucy Liu…but how come there’s never a brown girl on any of these programs? News flash, TV execs: an African-American socialite/fashionista/successful career-woman is not an oxymoron.

I mean, damn – give me a pair of Jimmy Choo’s and I’ll represent!

This Is What Crazy Sounds Like

group 01 This Is What Crazy Sounds Like
Does anyone watch Bad Girls Club on Oxygen? It’s not really a show that I watch…I admit that I’ve seen a few episodes, but it’s never on purpose.

Anyway, the show is about a group of self-confessed ‘bad girls’ who live, Real World style, in this mansion in LA. They don’t have any responsibilities, but there’s plenty of attitude – and even more alcohol. They spend most of their time disrespecting one another, and wrecking sh*t. And hilarity ensues.

In this video, Tanisha exacts revenge on her roommates because their partying kept her awake all night. Watch and be amazed.

Deliver Us From Eva

el2 Deliver Us From Eva
Usually I’m down for public display of affection, but Eva Longoria has taken this concept to a whole ‘nother level. First it was the bedazzled jeans and cell phone – emblazoned with the number nine, Tony Parker’s jersey number. Then came the Alex Woo “e&t” necklace and the Jean Dousset “9” pendant. Now Eva’s been seen sporting a new “Nine” tattoo on the back of her neck (she’d better hope he never gets traded and has to change his number).

We get it, Eva. Tony’s your man.

Eva Longoria is a beauty, that’s for sure – you won’t find many to argue with that assertion. But her behavior seems a little, no pun intended, desperate – no?

Sticker Shock

Not really beauty related, but I felt the need to share…

Last night, as I was perusing some of the latest fashion magazines – trying to stay abreast of the latest trends in style and beauty – my eyes were beguiled by some particularly fetching Balenciaga booties. The caption read, “price available upon request.”

Don’t you just hate when they do that? It’s like that scene in Pretty Woman where Vivian goes shopping in a Beverly Hills boutique – and they won’t tell her how much the clothes cost.

They might as well write, “This product is so ridiculously overpriced, we’re embarrassed to say how much we’re charging for it.”

Just my two cents.
