I'm a girl watcher...

Modest, yet fashionable. It may be February, but you'd best get an early start finding the perfect modest swimwear. Onesies are probably best left the domain of christian harlots. A two-piece is right out. How about a four-piece? The fine folks at Ha┼čema and Ahiida can hook you up with the hottest styles this season. After a refreshing swim, why not go for a jog?

Poor Little Rich Dog

Poor little Daisy Moshammer... After a life of leisure, immortalized on the arm of her famous, eccentric papa, the little dog's troubles began on the tragic evening of January 13th in Grünwald. Alas, poor little Daisy was fast asleep in bed when strange man strangled her beloved fashion icon daddy to death with a telephone cord. As he was a huge celebrity in Germany, the country mourned.

"What will become of me without Daddy?" Daisy whimpered. "I've been carried around so long, I don't even know how to walk anymore..."

When the will was read, Daddy proved he loved her! But without him to carry her, Daisy's world began to spiral out of control. Suddenly wealthy and thrust into the spotlight alone without her beloved big-haired father... how will she ever fill the void? Sex? Drugs? Are you kidding? Daddy would've much prefer shopping!

Harajuku Street Style

Harajuku Street Style. Oh those crazy cool Japanese kids! The streets of Harajuku are as much a fashion playground as they are an exhibit of Why You Should Never Pair White Boots with Gold Chains. This is, of course, in line with the existing weirdness of the brilliant Katamari Damacy, mayonnaise-and-squid pizza, and the "no caption required" homoerotic dating sim "le, Tatemasu!",

Lucire enters the real world

Lucire the fashion website becomes the next website to go real world with a magazine in newsagents. It's not the first (see Chud which publishes Movie Insider) but they've taken the step of putting the prototype May issue online in .pdf format and are asking readers for their input. How well can they do in an already crowded market place and is it significantly different for us to care?

Just say no to Crack

Staking out the high moral ground, a bill would punish those wearing low-riding jeans. It seems that Representative Derrick D. T. Shepherd of Louisiana, a Democrat no less, wants to outlaw low slung pants. Plumbers beware, and stock up on Butt-Crack Caulk! Really, don't they have anything better to legislate besides fashion or holidays?

New Jewelry Choices

Eyeball Jewelry This just caught my eye (Sorry!). It's jewelry that is implanted INTO your EYE! I think this is pretty cool and another milestone in body modding. Discuss how long until Georgia legislators ban this.

Is it a Farrah or a Bertinelli?

Getting bored with mulletspotting? Not just another laugh-at-the-dated-haircut site... Okay, maybe it is, but it's, er, sweeping out into other entertainment phenomena.

British style: baseball caps, sandals and socks

Are baseball caps more flattering to the British bella figura than sandals and socks?

Well, I know somebody out there in Mefi land will find some use for fifty years of underwear advertising and packaging... I know I did.

It's the clothes.

It's the clothes. A fashion columnist in The Washington Post blames corporate scandals on business-casual clothes, which lead to casual ethics.

Men in skirts

Men in skirts are a meme-wannabe, popping up often, but never quite breaking out into the mass culture, or at least not recently. But if someone as puissant as this guy can wear a Little Black Dress without blushing, perhaps this guy can, too. [obSkirtman link] Me, I'll stick with chinos.

Bin Ladin, the fashion label.

Bin Ladin, the fashion label. Forget Prada, forget Monica, Yeslam Binladin, one of Osama bin Laden's 53 siblings, is planning to launch a clothing line under a label that might carry a marketing challenge: "Bin Ladin."

A model commits suicide the other night

A model commits suicide the other night but what's really tragic about this is this is what is considered "plus sized" these days. Aren't the days of 80lb, heroin-chic models over?

What Would Joan Jett Do?

Riot grrls! Lost faith in Jesus, but still seeking a reliable moral compass anyway? Then ask yourself: What Would Joan Jett Do? Clearly, she'd order one of these t-shirts. I would myself, but I don't think they make 'em for guys. (via Pop Culture Junk Mail)

speaking of anorexia...

speaking of anorexia... "ministers are so concerned about the obsession of teenage girls with being thin that they are considering regulations aimed specifically at the fashion industry. the department of trade and industry is looking to draft regulations that would be designed to halt the "use and abuse" of those suffering from eating disorders and could force modelling agencies to use people with normal body shapes."

"[Model Guinevere] Van Seenus must have been a saint in a previous life, because she sure is an evil bitch in this one."

"[Model Guinevere] Van Seenus must have been a saint in a previous life, because she sure is an evil bitch in this one." Finally, mean-spirited gossip about the fashion industry. And a chance to add your own, too!
