#metgala

The gloriousness that is the Met Gala just happened last night, with a punk theme that some people took way too far (see below for evidence from not-so-surprising suspects).

Mind you, the one on the right is the same person who was just voted #1 on Maxim’s Hot 100 list.

Anyways, aside from those uncomfortable “we-took-the-theme-a-little-bit-too-seriously” ensembles, there were plenty of other dramatic looks that we need to discuss. Let’s start off with a bang, a.k.a Nicole Richie’s hair:

I don’t know how I feel about this as an everyday look (JK I know exactly how I feel about it and my feelings are negative even though Nicole Richie is on my girl crush list), but a huge shout out to Nicole Richie for reminding the world that The Hunger Games exist and that the second movie is coming out later this year.

And how about the friendliest-seeming person on earth, Kristen Stewart?

Girl looks like she just LOVES life, doesn’t she? It’s like they painted an even sturdier resting bitch face on top of her natural resting bitch face and the result is simply chilling.

OK, on to the next one…

stacy keibler

Although I have nothing against her, I’m always very confused when Stacy Keibler is at events. Especially when George Clooney isn’t standing right next to her. And  it was his birthday last night. So really, what was she doing here?

J. Law, my (fingers crossed) future BFF, looked stunning but also a little bit like she was going to the most chic funeral ever, so there’s that.

There was also that time Kim Kardashian was in attendance even though Anna Wintour banned her from attending the same event last year. If they went through the trouble of letting her in this year, she could have at least tried to look nice. I guess it just wasn’t her night?

Seeing a picture of Kim at the Met Ball made choosing my least favorite attendee really hard, considering Ms. Katy Perry was there as well, looking as ridiculous as ever:

And, just to end this note on a high perfect note…behold:

#kimkardashian

Ugh. Ick. I know. We don’t like her. But sometimes we just can’t avoid talking about her. I hate to start your morning this way but we must discuss Kim Kardashian’s pregnancy style/life status. Unless you are a cave dweller, you know that Kim is pregnant with Kanye’s baby. Side note: I can’t wait for them to try to Suri Cruise the shit out of that baby’s first photos but it’s not going to work because nobody likes Kimye. And their public approval rating is getting lower every day.

Anyways, It’s no secret that Kim has been getting all sorts of attention for her massive weight gain during this pregnancy. Like…Jessica Simpson levels of pregnancy attention. Except, unlike most other celebrities who build a protruding-belly-approved wardrobe, our (not so) little Kimmie is choosing to dress the same way she did before she had a human inside of her because she is insane.

OK, those pants probably would look fug on a skinny supermodel too…but that doesn’t invalidate my point that she obviously should not be wearing peplum pants well into her pregnancy.

I’m sorry– remember when she told everyone that Kanye threw out everything in her closet because he didn’t like her style? Where was he when she got dressed this day? Did she really think she could look good in this dress??! Don’t get me wrong- Kim has obviously had some great style moments…but I think this baby is making her delusional because I can’t imagine that she actually thinks this is a flattering look.

While I’m sure it’s harder to choose what to wear when you wake up and you’re super preggo, but there is a way to do it. Kristen Bell isn’t even smiling in this photo and is so much more preggo than Kim is right now and she still looks a million times better.

And just to drive the point home…here is Kim wearing a dress that can even make Zoe Saldana look bigger than she is. Seriously.

 

As much as I try not to let anything Kardashian related enter my mind, it’s hard to not be utterly perplexed by her fashion choices over the last couple of months. And while it’s obvious those rumors that she has already gained 65 pounds are untrue (but they could be in a month or two)…she is bigger than she was before she got pregnant. Naturally. It’s OK but she just needs to start dressing for it ASAP because her baby is going to resent her for all of this negative attention when it is older and understands the grave mistakes its’ mom made while she was carrying it. I just feel like nobody has told her yet that they make special clothes for pregnant women?

Also…I’m pretty sure even the weight gain is a PR move on her part. How else is she supposed to get a better weight loss endorsement deal than Jessica Simpson and Jennifer Hudson combined??!

P.S.- I’ll give her this– she certainly has Amber Rose beat.

#justinbieber

I am here to say one thing and one thing only about Justin Bieber: boy neeeeeeds to pull up his pants and wear shirts more consistently. I really never thought I would feel compelled to say anything about this, nor have I ever even felt compelled to write an entire post about the Biebs, but oh my lord this is simply getting out of hand!

Yesterday, Justin was spotted going through airport security in Poland with his shirt off and his pants well below his waistline.

This is just absurd, you guys. Let’s analyze what is going on here:

1. He is not wearing a shirt. Nowhere in the world does airport security require you to take off your shirt.

2. He is holding an object of sorts in his hands. A box? Food? I don’t know what it is, but I do know that if he could get that through a security screening, he probably would have been able to get through with his shirt on, too.

3. If he bothered to change the way the clothes on his body were arranged prior to walking through the machine, he could have easily pulled up his pants while his tighty whities were in plain view.

While many a young Belieber out there might appreciate Justin’s inexplicable need to not wear a shirt and/or sag his pants excessively, I think this is one of his recent behavioral developments that I cannot get behind. While I’m not condoning his (alleged) marijuana smoking, angry tweeting, or criminal amount of selfies, all of those activities are generally harmless. And while his fashion choices might not have an outright negative impact on my life, they are still offensive. If any other person in the world walked around like this:

they would not be accepted by society the way Justin is.   THERE IS NO WAY THAT IS EVEN REMOTELY COMFORTABLE.

It’s been obvious to the whole world that JB has been going through a bit of a pre-QLC lately, so I feel for him, but I really don’t need to see any more pictures of his ass. I think we all need to use some positive reinforcement (idea: throwing shirts at him whenever he is in public) to get him to get his act together. I really hope you guys are with me on this one.

#newyorkers

It sounds crazy, but New York City is filled with some pretty cool people other than us. That is why we started our New Yorker of the Week series where we convince some really awesome New Yorkers to answer a bunch of our silly questions.

Meet the lovely Sarah ConleyShe’s an expert in fashion, beauty and social media–basically everything we find relevant in life.

Sarah Conley

Name: Sarah Conley

Occupation: Digital marketing and social media consultant, style blogger at styleitonline.com

Neighborhood: Bushwick (JMZ side, not the L, just so we’re clear)

Favorite Twitter account: Too many to name! @eye4style because of her amazing wit, @CoachBlkrWomen because she’s got the West Village on lock, and @bergdorfs because the city wouldn’t be the same without the department store where dreams come true.

Favorite place in NYC: Truthfully, I could sit in the Temple of Dendur inside the Egyptian exhibit at the MET all day, every day. It’s so tranquil!

Best response to one of these ridiculous hashtags: #ThingsNotToSayOnTheFirstDate “Can you take a picture of my outfit for instagram/style blog?”

Biggest NYC pet peeve: The chaos that ensues on staircases and sidewalks. Why can’t we all walk on the right, pass on the left?

What competitive reality show would you win and why?: If there was a show that would give me money for identifying which MAC lipstick women were wearing, I’d totally win all of the dollars.

Where would you live if you didn’t live in NYC?:  At our home in Maine. There’s no place like it!

Popular song you are sick of/never liked: Alicia Keys, Girl On Fire (seriously, was it a reject from The Hunger Games soundtrack? What happened there?!)

Drink of choice: A Manhattan with extra cherries.

Best way to spot a tourist: My favorites are the ones who take pictures of emergency response vehicles while standing directly in their path, but mostly it is anyone with a vacant/confused stare with a Michael Kors/Coach logo bag on their arm.

Yesterday, Buzzfeed asked the question: How Long Can Beyoncé Get Away With Wearing Fur And Snakeskin?

And today, I have the answer: for as long as she damn well pleases.

PETA is all up in Beyonce’s business over her penchant for fur and animal skins–most recently, regarding these custom PMK shoes made from a variety of expensive animal hides:

I need to reiterate that while I do not support wedge sneakers, that’s not the issue at hand. I should also note that Old Man Morrissey is himself in a kerfuffle and recently bashed Queen Bey during a concert. Naturally, I have to defend my girl, but let me just say that you could replace Beyonce with pretty much anyone else and I’d still be giving PETA the same much-needed advice.

 

Why PETA needs to calm down about Beyonce’s Shoes

 

I dunno, maybe let’s address some animals people care about

(via Daily Mail)

PMK pulled off some next level Frankensteinian shit to put these together. They also went for a the most random-ass assortment of animals I’ve heard of. Look, Beyonce’s not skinning baby chimps for a pair of hot pants. PETA, do you really expect the public to get worked up over the use of stingray and anaconda skin? ANACONDAS? Really? Whether or not we should be upset, I’m not sure that this is the card you should be playing to garner support.

 

Perspective is a good thing

You guys perhaps need to pick your battles a bit more wisely. There’s not now going to be some massive demand for ostrich shoes and iguana leotards just because Beyonce wore them. No normal person can even afford this stuff. Don’t you have more pressing issues to focus on? Like why this happened?

 

Stop knocking a bad bitch’s steeze

beyonce shoes

As far as I’m concerned, PETA, this is your number one goal as an organization. The only time we ever hear about them is when they’re slamming celebrities over what they wore. I know that going after famous people generates more publicity than actually doing something, but it’s getting old. As I said before, are high-end fur and animal skin products really the most important issues you have to tackle? If so, I strongly suggest you look into using your resources in a manner that actually enacts some change. Go adopt a pound full of puppies or maybe, I dunno, trying help humans for a change. Leave all the bad bitches and Kim Kardashian alone. Damn, can they live?

#trendingtopics

Each week we take a look at some of Twitter’s most entertaining trending topics and provide some deep and meaningful insight. Or we just bitch about it.

February 2nd-February 8th

  • Beyonce

When: 2/3

Why: Super Bowl performance

Shir:  The Year of Bey. Nothing makes me more emotional or act more irrationally than our queen announcing a world tour. Just ask Kara.

Kara: I think we’ve more than exhausted this topic but it really did have to be brought up just one more time. I mostly just pity the person who performs next year. They should just cancel the Super Bowl.

  • Fall Out Boy

When: 2/4

Why: Nobody’s favorite band announces their reunion 

Shir: Way to jump on the bandwagon, guys. Nobody wants this to happen. Emo is dead. Bye.

Kara: For a hot second I thought this was the band that Avril Lavigne’s ex-husband was in, but apparently they’re different. Who cares knew?! Also, can you really call it a reunion when you didn’t technically break up? Not making any good music in years is not the same as dismantling your band. Of course, I know nothing about these people so that could be false. Who knows cares?!

  • #BieberOnSNL

When: 2/5

Why: The Biebs will be appearing on this week’s SNL as both the host and musical performer

Shir: Sooo many tweens just discovered what SNL is.

Kara: Ah, the double host/performance trick. I’m pulling for my homie here. Have we ever really seen Justin act before? The one thing we all know is that if this goes even remotely well, we’ll be seeing  him in next summer’s answer to Battleship. Which, speaking of Rihanna

  • Monopoly

When: 2/6

Why: After an online contest, Monopoly announces that a cat figure will the the new game piece

Shir: This is just another sign that cats will, in fact, rule the world one day. I like cats a whole lot more than most people, but I must say I’m not happy about this.

Kara: When put to an internet vote, OF COURSE the cat wins. For some reason that is so far beyond my understanding, the internet is obsessed with cats. Good thing no one plays board games anymore so this inclusion is completely irrelevant.

  • NYFW

When: 2/7

Why: New York Fashion Week begins

Shir: Skenny betches everywhere. I’m over it.

Kara: Didn’t we do this already a few months ago? I’m quite confident that this Nemo blizzard ridiculousness is punishment from god for putting on a second fashion week.
