Chloe Sevigny and Zoe Saldana wear Miu Miu. Photos: Andreas Branch/patrickmcmullan.comCelebs letting their bras peek out is nothing new, but when we saw photos of Chloe Sevigny and Zoe Saldana from Friday night's Prada book launch wearing nearly identical outfits we had to pause for a minute. First, what is up with this bra exposing, open-and-tucked-in blouse. And second, how did two celebrities come up with this? A quick Yahoo! search, and we realized both ladies got their outfits from the Miu Miu Fall '09 collections just as they were styled on the runway! So not only are Sevigny and Saldana both wearing these ridiculous boob-revealing outfits, they also are lacking creativity. That's a double fail, if you ask us.

There are elements we like here. Chloe's skirt is fab, and she'd look really cute if she was buttoned up a little bit on top. As styled, these looks may have worked on the runway, but we don't think they translate well to real life wear. The chest exposure is not even shocking anymore, it just looks silly. And if you were going to show off your bra,

Gavin Rossdale rocking a ponytail at an event with his wife, Gwen StefaniGwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale attended the Museum Of Contemporary Art Gala last weekend and both looked as gorgeous as ever. But the bloggers over at Glamour noticed something quite interesting: Rossdale had his hair in a ponytail.Read More »from Men with ponytails: who can pull it off?
While the hippie movement had some guys interested in longer hair styles, they really gained popularity in the 1970s, '80s, and early '90s. For the most part, the dudes who once rocked shoulder grazing styles have since worn shorter styles. Well, except for Fabio. While men's hairstyles are more clean cut now, we can't help but notice many celebs in the last year or two putting their chin-length 'dos into ponytails. Johnny Depp, Colin Farrell, and Russell Crowe, have all been photographed with ponytails. Men of all ages from 22-year-old Zac Efron to 76-year-old Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld have worn them.
While long, slicked back ponytails may conjure up images of Steven Seagal, Gavin Rossdale kind of pulls it off. We don't even have the urge to reach

Asprey silver baby spoon designed by BrangelinaWith six kids (perhaps a seventh on the way), sprawling properties, mega successful careers, multi-million dollar salaries, and, well, each other, you might think Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie had everything. Now they can add their own jewelry collection to the list, as the couple have conceived and designed a high-end line for Asprey. The limited collection called Protector will be available this week and all items feature snakes. Why snakes? Apparently when Angie was pregnant with their daughter, Shiloh, someone gave her a serpent ring, and ever since she has viewed it a symbol that protects her family. The Protector collection features gold, silver and pave diamond encrusted snakes in the form of rings, bracelets, necklaces, cuff links, and baby gifts. Prices start at $525 for a silver baby spoon with a serpent handle. How very Angelina.Read More »from The Brangelina jewelry collection, complete with serpent baby spoons

Getty ImagesWe're all for experimental fashion, but some trends are simply not flattering. And we're not talking about items like Uggs, which, while sort of bulky and unattractive, at least provide warmth. Harem pants theoretically could work on all body types. Many have elastic waists, and abundant room in the hips, butt, and thigh areas, so they will fit a curvy woman and could add desired curves to a slimmer lady. They're probably really comfortable too. The problem: they're universally unflattering. Why would anyone want the crotch of their pants a foot below where it's supposed to be? Why do people think it's fashionable to walk around with what looks like a load in their pants? Have we forgotten the horror that was M.C. Hammer? He popularized the look in the 1980s, and when he disappeared off our radar he took the shiny gold harem pants with him. Now the pants are back, but Hammer, aka Stanley Burrell, is distancing himself from them.Read More »from Even M.C. Hammer is over harem pants

Just because it's a recession doesn't mean our fingers have to suffer! Forget the salon--all you need for an awesome manicure is a bottle or two of polish and a steady set of hands, whether they belong to yourself or a friend.Read More »from One blogger, 365 DIY manicures
One crafty lady in Las Vegas has started a blog called The Daily Nail, where she posts photos of the manicures she paints on every single day. And they're not just basic colors--each manicure features a unique design. She has done art inspired Mondrian and Jackson Pollack nails, cartoons like "The Simpsons" and "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles," marble swirls and glittery French tips, patterns like plaids and zebra prints, and even nails that look like bacon!
"Due to my recent overspending on nail polishes (I've purchased over 50 in less than 2 months), I've decided that if I buy them, I must use them," the blogger writes. "Therefore, I've developed a challenge for myself." She plans to continue her blog for a full year. As a nailpolish junkie with probably 75
Free PeopleI'm not sure exactly when it happened (the 1980s? earlier?), but at some point ripped clothing became cool. Whether it's torn stockings, ripped jeans, or now, shredded leggings, something about "accidental" holes in garments is edgy, and makes it look like you don't care. Except that you do.Read More »from Fashion that makes us sad: $18 ripped socks
I remember wanting to buy some ripped jeans as a kid, and my mom looked at me like I was crazy. She joked that they charged extra for the rips, and said if I wanted to cut up an old pair or let it happen from normal wear-and-tear, fine. But no way was she buying me pre-ripped jeans. Now is the time when I'd like to say a much delayed "Thank you, mom!"
While browsing the latest wares from Free People, I came across a few really cute items, like this sequin skirt, but also these completely ridiculous tattered socks. They're described as "mid calf cotton blend socks with rips and tears throughout." Precisely the kind of socks we'd throw away! They're 85% cotton and cost $18, so I think it's safe to

Bryan Bedder/Getty ImagesIt seems like every generation has an "It" hairstyle that women run to their stylists trying to achieve. In the '70s it was Farrah Fawcett's feathered disco look. In the '90s, Jennifer Aniston popularized the "Rachel," a bouncy shag worn by the character she played on "Friends." No hairstyles have been as popular as these two styles in recent decades, but hair stylists are wondering if Blake Lively may change that.Read More »from Is the â€œBlakeâ€ the new â€œRachelâ€? â€œGossip Girlâ€ star has most coveted hairstyle
CW's drama "Gossip Girl," may be aimed at teens, but women of all ages have watched it since the beginning. The 22-year-old star, Blake Lively, plays Serena van der Woodsen, but their trendy style as well as their perfectly imperfect blonde locks are the same on-screen and off. There's not much to the hairdo, yet it always looks chic. Some face-framing layers, a subtle wave, softly curled ends, decent volume, and the slightest disheveled layer of frizz characterize the "Blake."

Alberto E. Rodriguez/Getty ImagesLindsay Lohan's first collection as artistic advisor for Emanuel Ungaro received scathing reviews from many fashion critics, but we had yet to hear from Ungaro himself. Perhaps it would have been better for Lohan if he had kept his mouth shut, but instead he told all to an audience at the Estoril film festival in Lisbon, Portugal.Read More »from When celeb designers flub: Ungaro calls Lohanâ€™s collab â€œa disasterâ€
"Lindsay Lohan's collaboration was a disaster," said 76-year-old Ungaro. "I am furious but I can't do anything about it." The designer said that the label he built "is in the process of losing its soul." Many fashion houses have had other designers take over, but the appointment of Lindsay Lohan, a failing actress and creator of a leggings line, as advisor seemed rather hasty and unusual. "That happens to a lot of designers," continued Ungaro. "We were the creators and patrons, responsible for the creation and destiny of our houses. But when we gave up our houses, we gave up our souls."
There have been rumors that Lohan is not getting paid for her work as
