Did Jay-Z Not-So-Secretly Reveal Beyonce Is Pregnant Again?

sob., 09/13/2014 - 20:35

Beyonce Met Gala 2014

Please let this be true, please let this be true, please let this be true. The Internets are currently going crazy because Jay-Z reportedly alluded that Beyonce was pregnant again during their final On The Run performance in Paris. According to reports, Jay changed the lyrics to one of his songs and said "'Cause she pregnant with another one." Artistic license or pregnancy announcement? Only time will tell, but we're definitely hoping for baby #2 because obviously the world would be a better place with another baby Beyonce. We'll keep you posted on when and if Bey and Jay confirm or deny the reports. via Naturally Moi [Photo: Splash News]

The Truth About How Nail Polishes Get Named

pt., 09/12/2014 - 22:40

Nail Polish

If you're anything like us, you've probably always wondered how nail polishes get named. Maybe you've even found yourself wishing this was your job. I know I have. It would be pretty awesome to take credit for names of cult polishes; ones that people request at the salon on a weekly basis, like "Russian Navy" or "Ballet Slippers." Which brings us to the question: who does this for a living? If this thought has ever crossed your mind (say, at 4pm on a Friday), you're in luck. We spoke to the very individuals responsible for naming the colors of your favorite polish brands, like Katie Jane Hughes of butter LONDON. Where it starts While each company has its own niche when it comes to WHAT the names are, the process all begins in the same place: naming a collection. For OPI, the seasonal collections are destination-based. The location is selected by Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, Executive VP/Artistic Director and the “First Lady of Nails.” She draws from her travels for inspiration, but events, like this year’s World Cup in Brazil, also influence which country or city is chosen. Essie Weingarten, founder of Essie, completely runs the show. Her names come from something that inspires her, whether it’s Hollywood actresses (“Leading Lady”) or childhood games (“Hide & Go Chic”). No matter what, it has to be memorable and resonate with what woman want. Every collection name is also the name of one polish in the line–but more on that later. How collections influence colors Once a collection has a theme and/or a name, the brand moves on to naming the individual colors within that line. Katie Jane Hughes, butter LONDON Global Colour Ambassador, explains that the Brick Lane Collection ($45) got it's name because of the colors: deep purples, yellows and reds. They reminded the team of an area in London that's all about Indian culture, Brick Lane. The specific polish names each have to do with aspects of Brick Lane. For example, "Cor Blimey" was chosen because of the Indian spice Coriander and British slang term "Blimey." This formula pretty much applies to all other brands. For OPI, "You Don't Know Jacques" comes from the La Collection De France, while Essie's "Recessionista" is part of the Stylenomics collection. Who comes up with the name Again, this depends on the company. Essie Weingarten is responsible for every single Essie polish name, while butter LONDON goes with a more collaborative approach. The marketing team, product development team and Katie Jane Hughes herself all take part in the naming process. At OPI, Suzi and a group of five people brainstorm what is unique or noteworthy from the country or city to come up with individual polish names. It can take anywhere from six to eight hours, which if you ask me, doesn't seem that long to think of some pretty witty names, like "Wooden Shoe Like To Know?" and "Lincoln Park After Dark." Props to them! What's the job Basically, there is no "Polish Namer" job. So, sorry to crush your hopes and dreams. I know, I was devastated too. But if you think about it, doesn't it make sense that people in marketing and development would be in charge of naming? They are, after all, supposed to be good with words and have an understanding of what the people want. However, if you have a crazy good name that you think can become the next "Cajun Shrimp," there are certain brands open to ideas. Katie Jane Hughes says, "If anyone wants to join in and throw some cheeky names at us, we would definitely take suggestions." Those holiday collections are probably in the works, so you better get on that to secure your nail polish name fame!

How To Win Halloween Costume Contests: Dress Up As Solange & Jay Z’s Brawl

pt., 09/12/2014 - 21:40

Solange_JayZ_Costume

If you and your BAE (or better yet, you and your brother-in-law) are looking for a costume to put everyone else's to shame at the Halloween parties you'll be attending this year, we have the perfect ensemble for you--Solange and Jay Z on the night of the MET Gala. Do you remember what happened that night? The epic elevator brawl where Solange attacked her sister's husband. (If you haven't seen the video, you can view it below.)

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CEUVrKoWGXg[/youtube]

While we definitely don't condone this type of behavior (please do not re-enact the fight as part of your act), we do support your desire to have the best couples costume of all time. All you have to do is buy the outfits in our slideshow and you'll be prepared for all of the Oct 31st festivities that come your way. And don't forget to hop in an elevator to snap a couple selfies for Instagram. Even if you don't win a costume contest with these costumes (which you totally should), you'll at least get some good pics. #DoItForTheInsta And if your sister wants to get involved, you can turn this into a trio costume. All she'll have to do is copy Beyonce's look from the Met Gala with a black maxi dress and some netted fabric to re-create Queen Bey's headpiece.

How To Find The Perfect Pair Of Normcore Jeans

pt., 09/12/2014 - 19:49

best normcore jeans

For those of you who still don't "get" what the normcore trend is, let me try to explain it for you: it's a little bit 90s (high waisted jeans), a little bit Seinfeld (white sneakers, turtlenecks) and a little bit basic (styling is minimal, almost no accessories required). To quote Gap's new normcore-inspired fall campaign, just "dress normal" and you've got it. (If you're if you're STILL in the dark, here is everything you could possibly need to know on the topic. Yes!) Now that we're all on the same page - which is that normcore is cool and all the cool kids are dressing this way for fall - let me give you some tips on how to nail it. The perfect normcore look starts with a great pair of normcore jeans. In fact, you can't be normcore without them. Since jeans are the focal point of a great normcore look, I've outlined the 5 most important qualities to look for when shopping for your first pair of normcore jeans: 1) Extremely high-waisted. Like Texas hair and Snoop Doggy Dog, the higher the better. I'm talking above the belly button, folks. Some people call these mom jeans and apparently mom had it right all along because low rise jeans are a cardinal sin in the normcore trend. Your butt crack should be no where in sight. K? 2) Light wash. The perfect pair of normcore jeans is a very light wash. Since they are a throwback to an era when dark wash designer jeans did not even exist yet, you'll be looking for jeans in the same color your dad wears (or Obama). 3) Relaxed fit. Skinny jeans will not work for normcore because they are way too fitted and tight. The perfect pair of normcore jeans is more of a relaxed, boyfriend fit. There's extra material throughout the jean--except at the foot hole which should be tapered (more on that below). 4) Vintage. The best normcore jeans are actually authentic 90s era ones (Jordache, vintage Levi's, stone wash, etc), so if you don't have your moms old pair saved it's time to do some vintage shopping. First stop should be your local Goodwill or Salvation Army--they don't need to be designer jeans, the fit and style are actually more important than the label. If you're grossed out by vintage or can't find a good pair in your size, it's OK to buy new. Brands like Topshop and Paige Denim have great normcore styles this season. Click through our slideshow above to shop them all. 5) Tapered. Even though normcore jeans are a throwback, don't even think about reaching for the bell bottoms or wide leg jeans. Even boot cut jeans or ones with any flare at all are wrong. The perfect normcore jean is tapered at the bottom. K now that you know what to look for in a normcore jean, click through our slideshow above to shop our hand-picked selection of the ones that are currently available online.

How To Get The Pills Off Of Your Sweaters

pt., 09/12/2014 - 18:00

SweaterShaveTopPhoto

Sweaters are one of the most difficult clothing items to wash since they're so prone to unraveling and pilling. No matter how hard your try and how closely you follow their washing instructions, sometimes sweaters can still give you trouble. Have you ever had one of your favorite sweaters get all those little pill balls on it? When this happened, you probably thought it was unwearable, but it's not. We found a solution to get the pills off of your sweaters so you can wash them normally and wear them for multiple fall and winter seasons instead of just one. The secret: Shave the pills off with a razor. All you have to do is lay your sweater on a flat surface and shave it just like you would shave the hair off of your legs. Shave the affected areas gently (don't press too hard or you might make a hole) until all the pills are gone. It's as simple as that. We promise it works! You can even use this method on tee shirts and sheets too. Check out the before and after pictures below.

Apple Just Added U2 To Everyone’s iPhone Music Library Via Cloud–WTF?

pt., 09/12/2014 - 16:28

U2 arrive at the 86th Annual Academy Awards

On Tuesday, Apple announced the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus along with the news about Apple watch, but what you didn't know is that the tech giant also gave you a gift via the mysterious cloud. Check your iTunes library. Do you see anything different? You probably have an entire U2 album of songs you don't know waiting to be downloaded. Creepy. But what's even creepier is that EVERYONE who has iTunes access has it. Apple and U2 have always had a great connection. Remember that black and red iPod that came loaded with U2 songs back in the day? Well, this is the 2014 version. At a press event for the iPhone 6, U2 performed "The Miracle (of Joey Ramone)" from their new album. And after they sang, Tim Cook, Apple's CEO said, "Wasn't that the most incredible single you ever heard? We would love a whole album of that," according to Rolling Stone. Well Tim, we all got one in what is being called the biggest album release of all time. It's just a little freaky that Apple has such easy access to all of our phones (probably in the fine print somewhere), but we're never going to complain about free stuff. So now that you know that you have U2's entire new album whether you like it or not, will you listen to it? Let us know in the comments below.

Private Party Is Making The New ‘It’ Girl Graphic Tees & Sweatshirts

czw., 09/11/2014 - 22:33

Private Party

A few weeks back, one of our writers told you how totally obsessed she is with her Beyonce Is A Virgo sweatshirt ($99). You might also remember when Khloe Kardashian wore her I Woke Up Like This sweatshirt ($100), which proceeded to sell out. Unsurprisingly, there is one brand behind both of these genius sweatshirts: Private Party. I first discovered Private Party on my Instagram explore page (if you don't follow them, you should). I wanted to get a closer look at this "Kanye's Workout Plan" muscle tank...because it's awesome: This brought me to the Private Party website where I found myself wanting every single item. A Versace Versace Versace sweatshirt, Champagne Campaign tank, U Mad? tee, I could go on and on. What makes these tops so great is that they feature some of the most popular slang of the moment (bae, turning up, worst, etc.), as well as quotable song lyrics (surfboard, these hoes ain't loyal). Plus, the pop culture references, like "So Quiche" and "Alright Alright Alright," are hilarious and spot on. Basically, we're calling anything from this brand as the next "It" girl item. There's even a Cara Delevigne's Eyebrows sweatshirt for the queen of all things graphic wear. So this pretty much certifies Private Party's status.

Can You Tell Which Pair Of Burgundy Booties Costs $144 More Than The Other?

czw., 09/11/2014 - 19:35

BurgundyBootTasteTest

We already gave you the heads up that burgundy booties were going to be the "in" shoe for fall when we found 31 pairs for you to shop. While some cost hundreds of dollars, others were in the $50-70 range, which is a lot more affordable. Some had zippers or buckles. Others had chunky heels, laces or leather. Overall, every pair was different with the exception of two suede pairs that look EXACTLY the same. One pair was from Steve Madden's Peace Love Shea Collection and the other was from Old Navy. The price difference: $144. But can you even tell which pair is which? Do you like one better than the other? Let us know in the comments below. Answer: The shoe on the left is Steve Madden TStudio ($179.50) and the one on the right is Old Navy's Women's Faux-Suede Ankle Boot ($36, down from $39.94). The only small difference is that the SM bootie has a zipper and a small patch of calf hair on the back. Did you guess it right? Test your fashion savy even further with combat boots, slit back tops and quilted slip-on sneakers.

Kendall Tattoo

Tattoos were everywhere this summer, but one place we did not expect to see them was the Tommy Hilfiger runway. The all-American designer ditched his usual preppy clothes for spring 2015. Instead, he created a rock 'n' roll-inspired collection since, you know, Tommy is a fan of the Beatles, Stones and Jimi Hendrix. Who knew?!

All the models were covered in hand-painted tattoos by Tattoo JunkeeKendall Jenner's were probably the most noticeable since she walked in short shorts and a bikini top (go girl!). You can get her Twin Stars ($4) body art below:

How To Prevent Crocking–When The Dye From Your Jeans Rubs Off On Everything

śr., 09/10/2014 - 22:03

Crocking

Have you ever put on a new pair of jeans without washing them first and noticed that your hands and shirt turned blue by the end of the day? Well, there's a name for this problem. Nope, it's not called smurfing (I wish. That would be funny). It's actually called crocking, which is also a silly name. When I first heard the term, I thought someone was referring to the act of wearing Crocs shoes(Hey girl! Look at my new shoes. I'm crocking), but I was sadly mistaken. Crocking is the term used in the fashion biz to describe what happens when dye is removed from fabric by rubbing. When jeans crock, they can stain your clothes, pants, hands, furniture or anything else you lean against or sit on. This is most common with denim that is dyed with indigo dye, but it can happen with anything denim if you don't take precautions. Luckily, we found an easy way to stop crocking so your belongings don't get ruined and to keep your hands from looking like you held hands with a Smurf. All you'll need is a washing machine, liquid laundry detergent for delicates, white vinegar and an iron to follow these steps. Once you have all of your materials gathered, you can begin: Step 1: Fill your washing machine with cold water and pour in a capful of laundry detergent. Then, throw your jeans in. The water will probably turn blue, but that's totally normal. Don't worry. Step 2: Stop the washing machine right before the rinse cycle starts. Step 3: Add two cups of white vinegar to the rinse water, but do not let the washing machine finish the cycle. Let your jeans soak in the vinegar concoction for 2 hours. Step 4: After 2 hours have passed, turn the washing machine back on and let it finish washing your jeans. Step 5: DO NOT put your jeans in the dryer. Let them air dry. Step 6: When your jeans are dry, iron them on the hottest setting that they can handle. The exact temperature should be indicated on the tag. Ironing your jeans will help set in the vinegar to prevent crocking. Step 7: Wash your jeans in the washing machine one more time as normal. Do not put anything else in the machine with them, just in case they bleed a little bit. You can dry them this time if you want. Note: If you have a denim clothing item that crocks, always wash it on your washing machine's coldest setting with like colors. You're better safe than sorry. You wouldn't want all of your clothes to turn blue by accident. You should also check out: how to weather-proof your boots, our fall denim guide and J.Crew denim on sale.
