and for André

Are you there, Chelsea? It’s me, 50.

A few month’s ago, Chelsea Handler teased the world with a picture of her in bed with 50 Cent. Were they dating? Did they fall in love? What did they talk about? Everyone wondered, while also wondering if the whole thing was a hoax.

But then, this weekend, the comedian showed up unannounced at the Sundance Film Festival.  Everyone was expecting 50 — he was in town to promote Cheetah Vision Films, his newly formed production company.  On Saturday night, after stopping by Bing Bar and Tao, Handler swung by Cheetah’s after party at Hype House of LIVEstyle Lounge, but there was no make out session. Handler saved that for last night — and for André Balazs.

The hotelier,louis vuitton outlet online, who’s behind the Chateau Marmont and the Standard,シャネル 通販, made room for Handler on his lap at a dinner for The Ledge, the Liv Tyler, Patrick Wilson film premiering at the festival. Of course, she wouldn’t admit she’d appeared in Utah for Balazs.  When Ross Matthews, the comedian who appears regularly on Handler’s show, asked what she was doing here she said,グッチ 財布, “Business!” though she refused to say exactly what kind.  The hotel business maybe?

“The most important gift is something that lasts,louis vuitton outlet store, and that’s why you go through the holidays with your nieces and nephews and you see all of these amazing toys that they get. And then, they’re just on the floor five minutes later. You notice that adults don’t get those same toys…Things that last are always the most powerful, [such as] memories,コーチ バッグ, whether it’s a photo album, something that was a meaningful moment, something that you make. A fragrance is something that my father would always give to my mother…It tells a story….It’s a nice identifier…If the world ended tomorrow, what would you have to hold onto? That’s why I love cooking so much, because it’s such an experience. It’s a feast for your senses.” —Blake Lively {Grazia Daily}

Weight Watchers has tapped Jessica Simpson and Jennifer Hudson to front a new campaign for the brand. Both Renaissance women

Watch: Jessica Simpson and Jennifer Hudson Star in a New Weight Watchers Video

Now that gyms will be overflowing and health books will be flying off the shelves, it’s time to think about how you’ll execute your get-fit New Year’s resolution. To help motivate dieters, Weight Watchers has tapped Jessica Simpson and Jennifer Hudson to front a new campaign for the brand. Both Renaissance women (each has singing,グッチ 財布, acting,シャネル財布, and fashion-design credits to her name) explain their struggle and weight-loss accomplishments in the video.

But what makes the ad slightly controversial is that Simpson recently confirmed her second pregnancy, which means she will be growing while encouraging women to slim down. Rest assured: She will still be eating for two in the months to come and will skip counting those WW points, Weight Watchers confirmed in a statement.

Watch the video below, and if you feel enthused, sign up for Weight Watchers here. Or just read up on what happened when ELLE staffers tested different top diets,シャネル バッグ.

I have my own sort of routine. We’ve been playing live for over ten years

Metric’s Emily Haines on Beauty,グッチ 財布 アウトレット, Style Icons, and Working with Margiela

Photo: Rodrigo Gaya with WorldRedEye

FYI: Metric front-woman Emily Haines is the perfect synth pop starlet. For starters, she boasts that kind of New Wave-friendly voice that makes one really feel things, in addition to having great grungy hair. A few years ago, no one,gucci 長財布, including the fashion world, could escape Metric’s smash hit “Help I’m Alive.” The Canadian-based band’s latest effort, the aptly titled Synthetica, is a sweeping, whimsical album replete with majorly catchy hooks and gym playlist-friendly bangers. Last week in Miami, the VH1 You Oughta Know band headlined the insanity that was the Scope/VH1 party, alongside a dizzying set from fashion favorite musical duo DJ Mia Moretti and Caitlin Moe. ELLE.com caught up with Haines pre-show at the VH1 Lounge, where she filled us in on her cat nap routine and her experience of being, you know, a sought-after emerging style icon.

ELLE: Walk me through your regular beauty regimen—aka, why are you so hot?

Emily Haines: Lots of ginger tea and lots of really hot steamy showers, because it’s great for your throat and your skin. I’m a big fan of oxygen treatments for the skin. And honey is a great thing to put on your face.

ELLE: Do you have any pre-show rituals?

EH: I have my own sort of routine. We’ve been playing live for over ten years, and the four of us have fallen into a rhythm of just hanging out before the show. If you’ve been to a Metric show, you know it’s a very high-energy event. I like to be pretty mellow before. It’s more about energy conservation—I’m known to be asleep five minutes before a show starts.

ELLE: The fashion world has really embraced you. Who has hooked it up for you the most?

EH: I’ve been working with Margiela, which has been really great. They asked me to be a part of their H&M collab, and they flew me to Paris and I did a shoot with them. In our video for “Breathing Under Water,” you can see a lot of the great Margiela pieces.

ELLE: So, do you consider yourself to be a fashion chick?

EH: You kind of have to be. You have to take control of it and embrace it, or it’s going to control and stifle you. I think rock ‘n’ roll and show biz are great outlets for being able to express yourself in what you wear. Femininity is a complex thing. Over the years, I feel like I’ve really refined my style to express my feminine strength. You don’t have to always be tough, you know?

ELLE: What’s your off-stage look,コーチ 財布 新作 2013?

EH: Off-stage, I’m more inclined to be a tomboy. I can’t really deal with the weekend warriors when it comes to fashion. Living in New York, it’s a bit over the top—I guess if that’s your performance, then you can really go for it. I feel fortunate that I have the outlet of the stage to really do it up, and in my personal life I’m just a bit more chill.

ELLE: If you could raid your style icon’s closet, who would it be?

EH: Probably Mick Jagger. Or Iggy! Because all I would have to wear would be a pair of jeans.

ELLE: What’s your favorite fashion-y music video of all time?

EH: It would have to be “Thriller,” right? Michael would be the other closet I’d raid.

Tilda Swinton’s &#x201C,グッチ 通販;Open to New Relationships”

Tilda i am love Tilda Swinton's all over New York promoting her new film, I Am Love, but the world's paying just as much attention to her wardrobe as her acting.  

The Scottish star walked ELLE through the Jil Sander pieces she wore in the film.  In her downtime,シャネル​, she's also the face of Pringle and the Italian jewelry line Pomellato,gucci バッグ, and it sounds like she's open to more working relationships within the industry — as long as they're artsy: "Certain people who work in fashion as artists are very close friends of mine and the collaborations with them are very important, so I'm open to new relationships. I go with the relationship into wherever we go. And Ryan and I are friends and we've worked now on the second Pringle campaign together and we're really having a laugh."

A Simple Anti-Aging Solution,コーチ

Beauty Intelligence

Truth be known, I am obsessed with anti-agers. Seriously, I probably own about three different eye creams, plus a dozen moisturizers and wrinkle-fighting serums—and I haven’t even turned 30 yet! Though after trying The Solution, a new anti-aging lotion developed by Kim Snyder,プラダ 財布 新作, founder of Envision Beauty, I think I may have finally found “The One”. According to Snyder, The Solution solves all of your anti-aging skincare needs in one bottle. It’s a pretty big promise to deliver on, and I’m not sure whether I’ll ever summon the will power to part with my beloved eye creams. But since trying The Solution and talking to Snyder I’m inching closer to independence…

—Emily
Hebert

How is The Solution different from other anti-aging products?
The main distinction between The Solution and other brands is that we designed The Solution to be a one-step, all-in-one, comprehensive aging complex in one bottle. It has natural ingredients that are beneficial and very potent in terms of antioxidant content. But unlike other natural lines that aren’t benefit-driven we have the technology. And we also don’t have any fillers, chemicals, or parabens. We’re not just a natural line, we’re not just a scientific line—we’re everything together.

The Solution by Envision Beauty

Actresses Sophia Bush and Kristen Bell are fans of The Solution ($74, envision-beauty.com)

So you can also use The Solution as an eye cream?
The Solution absorbs immediately into the dermis of the skin and it works really well in terms of nourishing the eye area, which needs that extra protection. The Solution also contains grapeseed extract and that helps with capillary fragility. Some women, their skin is so thin around the eyes,コーチ 財布, you can actually see capillaries and whatnot. So The Solution definitely targets and helps concerns around the eye area like fine lines, wrinkles, and dryness.

Is The Solution appropriate for all skin types?
Use one layer for any season. For any problems that come up with the seasons—dry skin, patchiness—add a second coat. It’s important to give yourself two coats of nourishment instead of doing one thick layer. Heavy creams that contain synthetic oils create a barrier on the surface of your face and don’t actually hydrate the skin. The two main hydrators in The Solution—NaPCA and Hyaluronic Acid—are hydrators your skin naturally produces.

What if you have acne-prone or sensitive skin?
I personally have oily skin and acne-prone skin and I’m concerned with aging, so when I designed this product I designed it with those elements in mind [laughs]. Acne is caused by a variety of reasons and one reason I believe is that women are putting too many different products on their skin and it clogs their pores. The Solution doesn’t contain any harsh synthetics—oils and heavy moisturizers that aren’t natural to the skin—so it won’t cause blockages. If you see a dermatologist and use a topical acne medication, I recommend putting The Solution on top of your topical.

You also have a couple cleansers coming out for Spring 2009. Tell me about those.
The Solution is the star—it’s the flagship product. The reason we designed the cleanser is because it’s important to prepare the skin so that The Solution can be absorbed as much as possible. If you’re using the wrong cleanser, it can strip the skin and create deposits of chemicals. For example, lots of cleansers include sodium laureth sulfates which are [foaming agents] used to strip wax off floors. [The Brightening Cleanser and The Exfoliating Cleanser] are self-foamers—the bottle itself creates a foaming action, not any chemicals we put in. The cleansers are completely natural.

a makeover

Health and Happiness

 Aw

 

The Alexander Wang show is this afternoon, and I’m pretty sure I know what I’m wearing. I just can’t tell if it’s see-through or not?  Well,コーチ アウトレット 通販,  the dress is pretty beautiful.

Yesterday, I looked like a mushroom and today I’ll be… half-dressed? No, I’d better figure this out.

So, the boots in the picture above: I really, really love them. They’re beautiful, super comfortable, and make you look 12 feet tall. They’re fun. A weird thing happened last night when I wore them, and I think I was mistaken for a hooker. And that’s not a good thing. I had just walked outside to get a cab, and I was walking down Christopher Street (mistake #1) and this (I’ll try to be as tactful as possible) disgustingly drunk, dirty homeless man  came up to me and said "Oh baby, if i was your man, I’d love you all night long." Yeah, I threw up a little bit in my mouth.

The thing with the homeless in New York–well everywhere–is that it is just so incredibly sad that people just give up on themselves or fall so far from reality that it’s impossible for them to come back. I wonder if there is a way to go all around the city; find every homeless person; bring them all and do an enormous intervention; a makeover, job training, alcohol and substance abuse treatments; and send them back into society as positive members of the community.  That would be nice. I need to start doing more things like that. There can’t be a better thing than making other people happy.

Anyway, my point is the boots are incredible. There should just be a warning label on them: not to be worn on Christopher Street.

Carrot

Fashion Week is actually generally a perfect diet.  Everyone is literally running in circles, rushing to put 32 hours worth of work into a 24 hour day. And the models, on top are getting a side little workout out of changing, running down the runway, stripping as quickly as possible,coach アウトレット, and off and running again. Little time to eat,シャネル(CHANEL), heart rate pumping away = perfect fashion week diet. Of all of that (as silly as it may seem), I want to make a chart of fashion week. All the different things that make it all come together. Because there is really an insane amout of work that goes into that 20 minutes of , well, beauty.

List of things to do: Try on DVF red dress again, walk around in the incredibly beautiful Anna Sui dress while I vacuum all the dog hair,  hug the Phi coat, vest, and dresses. Then put the dress and vest on while making the bed,  and stare at the Thakoon dress while showering. Finally, put my jeans and T-shirt back on, go to the bank, see an apartment, get a manicure. Then go to the Alexander Wang show!

Last thing: Elizabeth on The View? God, she is SO annoying! Why is she so uptight? About everything! It makes me nuts! They should give me her spot. I’m far more interesting.

Vanessa Bruno Premieres New Film Starring Lou Doillon,シャネル 財布


Yesterday morning,シャネル財布 新作, L.A’s hit-list of ultra-stylish women including Michele Hicks, Shiva Rose,louis vuitton outlet online, Sienna Guillory, Jesse Kamm, Jasmin Shokrian, Tierney Gearon, Camille Eddera and Kelly Lamb (among others) showed their support for French designer Vanessa Bruno at a VIP breakfast in West Hollywood.

The recently-opened Melrose Avenue boutique set the scene for the unveiling of the designer’s Autumn/Winter collection via “Day For Night”, a three-minute short film celebrating the third collaboration between French director Stephanie Di Giusto and Bruno’s muse, actress/singer Lou Doillon.

Danish indie-group Efterklang provided the bewitching tunes for the project which evidently provoked an outright spell of retail therapy as guests including Shiva Rose and Michele Hicks left with a lot more than simply the goodie bag in tow. “I’m taking the top now but I’m coming back next week when those beautiful dresses arrive in-store” cooed Rose.

who taught the course] said very eloquently

Parsons Students “Unlearn” In New “Zero-Waste” Design Course

Winning student Andria Crescioni with Loomstate's Scott Mackinlay Hahn Photo: Jonathan Grassi

On Tuesday night, a lucky and talented Parsons BFA Fashion Design student found out her design would be produced and sold as part of Loomstate’s Fall 2011 collection. Scott Mackinlay Hahn of Rogan and the eco-friendly label announced the winner at the opening reception for Zero Waste Denim, an exhibition at Parsons that showcases students’ approach to sustainable design.

Senior Andria Crescioni was chosen from a small group of finalists who took part in a new sustainable design course, for which Hahn and Rogan Gregory, two of New York’s most notable sustainable designers, acted as mentors.

In an industry where terms like “sustainable,” “green” and “eco-friendly” have been thrown around so much that they’ve begun to lose their meaning, it was reassuring to see a genuine commitment to an effective approach to sustainable design. And that Parsons has chosen to instill such commitment into its students is a pretty clear indication that it’s more than a passing trend.

Students were challenged to create a piece out of denim using “zero waste,” a design approach that students were taught in a 15-week course this past fall. To us, Andria’s piece was a clear winner—it was well-constructed and we could easily picture it alongside Rogan or Loomstate. “I was trying to emulate Rogan’s design aesthetic. It’s a bit more sporty than I tend to work,” she told us. On working with Rogan and Scott, who visited the class a couple of times to critique and give feedback, she said, “It was so great, and at the end of the semester they came in with Julie Gilhart. They gave us such good feedback and they were so awesome.”

She admitted the zero-waste approach was limiting: “When you go to sew it you can’t sit there and manipulate the fabric forever. You have to think of it more mathematically.”

Simon Collins,GUCCI【グッチ】, dean of the School of Fashion,グッチ 財布 激安, echoed this sentiment. “Zero-waste requires a different approach to design because you have one further step. You have to figure out if there’s waste and how to accommodate that waste. As Timo [Rissanen, who taught the course] said very eloquently, you have to unlearn much of what you know about design.” A somewhat surprising statement coming from the dean of a notoriously strict fashion design school.

On working with the students, Rogan said, “It was refreshing to work with them because they’re at this stage where they don’t have anything to lose. Most of the people you meet in this industry are corrupted by something.”

The Zero Waste Denim exhibition will be on view at the Arnold and Sheila Aronson Galleries in the Sheila C,コーチ 財布. Johnson Design Center at 66 Fifth Avenue until the 23rd.
