Where have you been all my life?




What are these you ask?


Girls only want boyfriends who have great skills

You know, like nunchuck skills, bowhunting skills, computer hacking skills...

Mostly, that last one. I'm a sucker for a geeky tech guy, and these are effing dope.

Blonds Ambition

Photobucket


Look familiar? Since we are head over Manolo's for everything SATC2, I decided we should delve into another designer who is guilty of making the women of Sex and the City flirtatious, fabulous and heart-stopping knock outs.

Photobucket


Everyone, meet Phillipe & David Blond, formally known as "The Blonds". The gorgeous men are responsible for the dress above worn by Samantha Jones and are also guilty of designing knockout couture for Britney Spears, Dita Von Teese, Katy Perry and Debbie Harry.

While it was hard to choose, we are going to share some of our favorite designs courtesy of The Blonds. We hope you enjoy the art of these fabulous fuckers as much as we do.

Bikini Bum Facial - COMPLETELY bare doesn't begin to cover it...




The fine folks at Completely Bare Spa asked if I would like to try their new Bikini/Bum facial, and well... I'm too chicken shit. Thankfully, I found someone who wasn't.

Noni was willing to leave (most) of her modesty at the door and experience the treatment for the sake of reporting. Twitter users even were able to follow the process live via her twitter feed (@MissVersatile). Brave girl. ;)

 Back to the treatment. The service is described:


Cindy Barshop, owner of completely bare spa (in NY) and hair removal expert, developed the Bikini/Bum Facial to minimize the damage from continual trauma from a bad wax, excessive shaving and ingrown hairs resulting in discoloration, scarring, and hyper-pigmentation causing a “shadow” effect. The treatment also treats acne, age spots and rough skin on the buttocks, ensuring that skin looks flawless in even the most itsy-bitsy of bikinis. At the end of the treatment, skin feels baby-smooth to the touch. The 45-60 minute treatment includes the following steps:

Step 1: Cleansing the area

Step 2: Crystal Microdermabrasion – exfoliates dead skin and scars of ingrown hairs, shadowing caused by skin being pulled during waxing sessions< Step 3: Steaming – to help with the extractions of ingrown hairs and acne, as well as open pores

Step 4: Soothing Organic Mask – to close the pores and balance the skin

Step 5: LED Light Therapy – Green LED reduces melanoma production and pigmentation. Blue LED prevents bacteria and acne. Yellow LED detoxifies.


You walk out of the spa feeling renewed, rejuvenated, and with an extra jolt of confidence.

Hmm. Sounds curious. A vajayjay facial? Why would one even need that?

Sex & The City 2 Premiere: Blue Carpet Screencaps


SJP looked amazing in neon yellow Valentino Couture from SS2010. We were dying!


Perhaps more exciting than the gown was her newly lightened tresses, styled in a loose wave. The blonde is enviously buttery.


Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon had so much fun in this dual interview. Kristin wore neon pink Jean Desses for Decades and Cynthia was in classic black Carolina Herrera AW2010.


Again, the hair topped the gowns. Check out Cynthia's gorg strawberry blonde!


Kim Cattrall looking way too hot for her age in gold Naeem Khan. Seriously, what is her secret?!

We'll be back with a full rundown and update. Stay tuned!

Roma Ro-ma-ma. Guo Pei Oh La La



"A dress touches people's hearts. It's like an opera. You don't understand the language. Still, you feel moved."

It's rare a designer can give me the urge to lay in the sand and wax poetic to the moon, yet render me speechless.

If fashion as art were ever questioned, here is your "fuck you" answer.

I don't want to know your name



"Robert and I work closely with Coty on these projects, and he said, ‘Marc, you look so great now — you should be the model for men’s fragrance.’ My immediate reaction was, I don’t know. But then I came to see that it made sense ... Once I agreed to be the model, I couldn’t see what I would wear to express this. We tried it with clothes, but it didn’t work. Then Juergen [Teller, who shot the campaign] had the idea for the silver Mylar, and it all came together. The silver Mylar also gives it that flash, that bang ... As a word, it has so many connotations, including a sexual connotation.” —Marc Jacobs



I could sit here and write out a whole post on the circumstances and information, but do I really need to?

Straightjackets for bad bitches.

When it's too hot for sleeves, and you need something to wear to group therapy.



Bondage shorts a la Vivienne Westwood. 

All that's left is to hide the sharp objects. No worries, you can use your stiletto in a pinch.

Patricia Field of dreams

PhotobucketWith Sex and the City 2 just days away, the fashion muse responsible for starting all of the trends sure as hell wasn't going to be left in the dust.

Using the creative steam still pent up inside from working on SATC2, Patricia Field will be using her creative genius microbes to pump out the most fabulous, extraordinary, get the fuck outta the way Christian Siriano in order to produce her own line for Payless.

Release date is set for summer of 2010.

Also, Patricia and Payless have become such BFFs, Payless is allowing her fans to upload photo's of outfits in need of some styling 911 onto their Facebook wall for Fields' to critique and give advice. Release date is set for summer of 2010.

What else can we say other than Holy Shit!!

Marc Jacobs collabs with Melissa, Baby Jesus cries.


Why God...whyyyyyyyyyyyyy?

Just when I thought that my holy savior, Marc Jacobs, would never turn his back on me, I find this fuckery. I'm not even going to post the actual design, because it just hurts too much.

It's no secret that I loathe all things Melissa. I mean, I'm a product of the 80's and was totally down with jellies and all... I often joke about bringing them back. But I don't... because I still posses common sense. And now with this bullshit I may not be around to do that anyway, as I'm about to die of broken heart disease.

I sat here for 15 minutes trying to find something nice to say, some part of this that would allow me to overlook the fact that God is killing kittens right now,  but just couldn't.

Marc, you have done me wrong...and it's going to take a lot for me to get over this. But you can start by naming a bag after me. No promises.

Damn, Erdem!



It's common knowledge that we're all about the eclectic-- the spice and pizazz of fashion-- here at FerOHHHsh. But I couldn't help to stop dead in my tracks over Erdem. Sharp and graceful, yet modern.

Erdem's philosophy is that women can have their own style, yet remain elegant at the same time. Pay attention, food court fashionistas.

Erdem has recently won a shitload fashion and design awards. Google him, I'm not your secretary. All I know is this kid makes my heart skip a beat and brings out the Jackie-O wannabe in me.

Rastafarian: Trend or Dread?

by Lauren Quintana

Said he was a Buffalo Soldier, straight outta Bloomingdale's.

Leather, Lace and Rastafarian. An eclectic mix of recent trends which appeal to nearly everyone.

The Rastafarian trend has been made popular numerous times through strong supporters of the Rastafarian culture and those on their bandwagon. Supporters include Bob Marley, Gwen Stefani and Peter Tosh. Your Aunt Trudi probably got into it after wearing her "Jamaican me Crazy!" shirt she always wears. That Aunt Trudi, what a pistol.

Although Christian Louboutin, Dior, Roxy and many other designers have married their creative demons with SHABBA, others are calling it a "Fashion dread" rather than trend.

People such as Cedella Marley. Name sound familiar? DUN DUN DUNNNNN.

Bob Marley's daughter is none too pleased with the current Rasta trend. Well excusssse us, Ms. Thang.

We get people jeopardizing the importance of your culture. The value of Malcom X became trivial when he became a fashion statement, same goes for the crucifix.

Really? Or are we blindly blaming things on the fashion world-yet AGAIN.

Let's start with this: Cedella Marley has her own line of clothing out, Catch a Fire, which incorporates the Rastafarian culture and images of her late father on nearly everything in this designers inventory.

Who's disregarding whose culture? Let's not play the fool. So, a young sorority girl is in a Rastafarian print Roxy bikini, how does this damage the backbone of your culture any more than you monetizing on your late father?

When people don't "get" something, you teach them, we don't pish-posh and make assumptions. Ms. Marley suggests that designers are unaware of the meaning behind the culture, that they are unaware of the significance of the Red (blood), Green (Earth) and gold (the sun)

Is this fact, or we assuming? Are other cultures embracing one and other such a horrible thing, be it in spirit or fashion?

Eh, who cares. Who's coming over for some wacky terbacky?

Groom need not apply

I've been obsessed with off-kilter engagement type rings more than usual lately, and while these aren't actual diamonds, I'm ok with that. I can afford to buy them for myself, lol.

Suffice to say, I am officially obsessed with Herkimer diamonds. This ring is amazing!


People's Revolution's Bizarro PSA

If you watched The City last night, you'll know what this is about...but it still doesn't make it any less bizarre. But it's got to be fun to work there, no?




Ooooooooh, Cutrone.

Have dreams of meeting Anna Wintour? Only Seven WOWsand dollars...

By Lauren Quintana

Not to be out bid by Donatella Versace, Ms. Anna Wintour has rebounded on this "bid for my attention" war.

Round two of bidding includes the chance to meet Anna, tickets to a Fashion Week show, Alexander Wang and Proenza Schouler bags, a $1,000 Louboutin gift certificate and, wait, just wait.

A gift certificate for pizza.

Pizza.

Bidding must start at no less than seven grand. Now, before anyone starts bidding, let us do some quick shopping, shall we?

Alexander Wang leather duffle: $875

Proenza Shouler tobacco suede PS1 bag: $1,995

Louboutin Gift Card: $1,000

Pizza: $150 worth

Right now we are at $4020, and we have yet to calculate the in the fashion show ticket. However, fashion shows are by invite only. So, if you are a true fashionista, this entire bribe deal could totally be worth it.

Who are we kidding? If you're a "true" fashionista you don't need any help getting into fashion week.

Now, let's not neglect that $7000 is the starting bid, and with Anna's previous bid war reaching $42,000 from an original starting bid of a mere $1,000, this bidding is sure to climb to the top of the bell tower just as quickly.

Bidding ends Thursday, May 13 2010.

Are you willing to meet Anna at the top of the Bell Tower?

For the MJ gal who has everything...except pencils


Last month's news that Marc Jacobs had purchased the non-defunct Biography Bookstore on Bleeker- with intentions to turn it into his own, yes, BOOKstore- had hipsters and fashionistas tickled. Now tourists can finally join in the fun.

Racked has your first look at the first released "Bookmarc" products, including colored pencils, book covers, and pencil cases. These trial-run items will presumably will be sold at the Bookmarc store once it opens.

Building anticipation Marc? Or just testing the waters?

If you're willing to wait on the mile-long line of tourists, you can snag some of the items early...but you may have to wrestle a middle-aged mom from Kentucky.

Good luck. We know you can take her.

RELAX: Woodhouse Day Spa, Montclair NJ

Spa Week Daily was awesome enough to send me to The Woodhouse Day Spa in Montclair, NJ, for a preview of the services they were offering during Spa Week. I was able to choose from Chakra Aromatherapy Massage, a Soothing Facial, Seaweed Wrap, or an Organic Sugar Scrub Pedicure.

I'd actually just been to Woodhouse a week earlier for a massage and facial for my birthday, and I couldn't get another facial so soon. I had just gotten a pedicure too. I decided against the body treatment because I had intended to film it, so yeah. Me naked + new flip cam + vichy shower = NO WAY.  I choose the massage... because you can't ever have too many massages, right?

Booze N' Go: A new spin on "brown bagging" it

By Lauren Quintana

"Drink your wine, for you cannot find a better moment."


Let us begin with a round of honesty. The bag isn't OMFG worthy and reeks of your very, very basic black bag.

Let us continue with a round of "Who gives a shit" I don't care if this damn bag looked like one of those bootleg knockoff Vuitton lucky-charms edition they sell at Claire's. It's a purse, with a wine spout! For your wine! That you can easily hide in this purse and discreetly pour some booze into your trendy "Savin' the world one canteen at a time" canteen. Who will know?

Think about the last time the boss was hounding you, or you just couldn't take one more moment at dinner with your mom. Whilst in these situations, how often do you frantically search your purse for at least one drop of alcohol.....only to find it's a dry zone?

Well, Happy Birthday. Love, Heaven.

The Baggy Wine Coat costs about sixty dollars USD, and comes in Black, red and white.

Only Style Remains The Same...

By Lauren Quintana

Personal, yet universal. Two words which best describe Gabrielle "CoCo" Chanel's approach to fashion.


The iconic and bow-down-to worthy 2.55 bag will be on exhibit next week at Chanel's 57th street location.

"The secrets of the Chanel Handbag" will display a timeline of the evolution of the original Chanel shoulder bag, often referred to as the "2.55"- named after the date it was created, February 1955.

So, if you happen to be in the area, or feel like taking a day trip, head on over to 57th and have a little history lesson.

Trend Watch: Shades of Blue

(L-R: Blake Lively in Marchesa, Amber Valletta in RM Roland Moulet, Chloe Sevigny in Proenza Schouler, Zoe Saldana in Calvin Klein.)

Drew Barrymore was among the first at this year's SAG Awards.

Next came the Emmy's, The Globes, where again we were awash in a sea of blue. The trend hit home at The Academy Awards, where Gabourey Sidibe, Kristen Stewart, Mo'Nique, Mariska Hargitay all wore the hue to the Academy Awards .

Last night, we spotted the shade on Blake Lively, Amber Valletta, Chloe Sevigny, Zoe Saldana, Oprah Winfrey, and Jessica Stam.

Midnight, Azure, Cerulean, Aqua, Navy.... whatever the shade, blue is SO hot right now. Want to try the trend yourself? Here are some tips:

1. Ocean blues look great on blonds, while navy and midnight are striking on brunettes.
2. Push the trend further by mixing hues, i.e. navy accented by turquoise, or cerlulean with midnight accessories.
3. When in doubt, blue looks great with silver or gold accessories.

Best and Worst at the MET Ball

(L-R: Kristin Davis in vintage Rochas, Renee Zellweger in Carolina Herrera, Jennifer Lopez in Zuhair Mura)

Monday evening, the Met once again hosted the Olympic Games of the Fashion Industry: The annual Costume Institute Gala Benefit. The stars aligned in their best couture, or in some cases, what they thought was their best (don't worry honey...we'll blame your stylist. Shhh!)

I love the Met Ball, because it really is the Couture event of the season. The awards shows are way more commercial, while the at Met Ball all bets are off.

Here's Best and Worst picks...

Luxury Auction Site OohILove Selling Fake Bags?

By Lauren Quintana


"A word to the wise ain't necessary, it's the stupid ones who need advice."

With the cosmic eruption of sample sale and overstock-esque websites, everyone is expecting and demanding a more than generous bargain. So much, that people have lost their damned minds expecting to grab a pair of Louboutin's for $7.86.

Oohilove.com has been tossed in front of the firing squad recently over some "Not authorized to sell LVMH merchandise" practices. As LVMH (Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy) has a strict "No Sales, EVER!' mantra, we had to do some research to find why a small percentage off was unheard of in-store, yet people were snatching up bags for the same price of sponsoring a child for a whole month.

The way Oohilove.com works is as such: Buy as many bids as your greedy heart desires for .99 per bid. Each bid you make deducts a bid from your bid bank (no shit). There is a countdown, similar to the "Going Going Gone" section of Outnet.com. As bids are placed, the price goes up by .02 and the countdown increases by ten seconds, allowing bidders to reclaim their bids.

The practice itself is not what has us concerned. It's an actual clever and profitable business move. Let's have a moment of intellect, shall we?
Oohilove.com purchases the bag at full retail. Bidders begin bidding and zing-zang-pow! You've won Louboutin mary-janes for $75. Remember the two cent rule? So, 75/.02= 3750. The average price for the shoe is about $830, however with thousands of people on the site and bidding, Oohilove.com has earned 3,750 + 75 profit. To add, by requiring you to purchase bids up front, they are creating their own commodity, thus guaranteeing themselves a big pay-out.

Now that we've established penny-gambling, although risky, is legit-l et's discuss why we're really here.

CEO of LVMH, Daniel LaLonde, has made numerous remarks in the press as of recent over the items being "obvious fakes".

No outlandish or overly publicized press conference needed. Two simple words, "obvious fakes". Something those of us with functioning brain matter figured out awhile ago.

So, for those who "need a word"...Save your money and buy the damn bag.
