in the world so it's only fitting that the runways at Mercedes-Benz Moscow Fashion Week Russia were paved with bling as models sashayed down the runway in gilded bodices and glittery body paint.
The gold rush, deemed by the Internet "One of Moscow Fashion Week's oddest look so far" was the brainchild of British designers Fyodor Golan, a Latvian and Israeli fashion duo who launched their brand in 2010 when they were only 27 and quickly acquired Rhi-Rhi and Lady Gaga as fans. Their gold ensembles popped against other outfits on the runway such as the designer's lilac and blue face-covering hats, Gera Skandal's Spiderman-inspired sheer jumpsuits, and Ekaterina Sidelnikova's modern caveman creations.
Head-to-toe gold body paint has been the subject of controversy ever since a decades-old rumor circulated that a body double for actress Shirley Eaten who played Jill Masterson in the 1964 James Bond film "Goldfinger" died during filming due to "skin suffocation" and

It's not the first time the 54-year-old's looks have caused controversy. Although she has an impressive resume (holding myriad jobs from paratrooper, nurse, and even astronaut), owns her own property, and has been in a committed relationship with Ken for over 50 years (save for that short-lived breakup), it's her flat stomach, perky breasts, and flaxen hair that have been the subject of scrutiny since 1959 when she first debuted in stores. Long criticized for her unattainable proportions—in real life, her measurements would translate to a six-foot tall woman with a 39" bust, 18" waist, and 33" hips—she's been blamed on a global scale for everything Read More »from Meet the New Natural Barbie

Playboy Mansion wearing a hot pink sequined body suit with matching bunny ears, and her signature duck face posing for photos with Hugh Hefner. No doubt, the photo is classic Paris, but in light of how Kim Kardashian has puppeteered the new wave of reality television, it's also hopelessly outdated.Nearly two months after she celebrated her 32nd birthday, Paris Hilton spent Easter Sunday hopping around the Read More »from Paris Hilton is Still Trying to Make the 90's Heiress Thing Happen
Although we can't imagine reality television without the Kardashians, we wouldn't ever have known the famous fam without Paris Hilton who rose to fame in the 90s. Her Heatherette fashion campaigns and hard-partying, "f*ck yeah" attitude combined with her celebrity bed-hopping (Randy Spelling and Nick Lachey, just to name a few) landed her the coveted title of "New York's leading It Girl" in 2001. Cut to 2003 when her sex tape with ex-boyfriend Rick Salamon "leaked" one week before the premiere of her reality show "The Simple Life" which Hilton starred in with then-best friend Nicole
The hottest model in Berlin is none other than 83-year-old Turkish tailor and father to 18 children Ali who walks the streets of Berlin's Neukölln district every day. His eccentric street style is captured by Australian photographer and Berlin resident Zoe Spawton on her popular blog "What Ali Wore." Says Spawton: "I work in a cafe in Neukölln, and every morning at 9:05 a.m., this elderly Turkish man would walk by. He was always dressed so stylishly that it was obvious he had put a lot of thought into what he would wear…He thought it was funny at first. And I think he was a bit proud. Now he's the one giving me instructions and showing me where he wants to pose, though he doesn't allow it every day." Ali, a former doctor who owns 80 suits, also refuses photos if he's not impeccably dressed and objects if he's wearing an outfit that's already been photographed. Diva alert! Here are some of Ali's best looks.

Unlike women who can highlight, chop, straighten, or curl their manes, men don't have as many options when it comes to hair styles. That's why they get creative with their facial hair. And boy, do they get creative. On Thursday, John Travolta showed up to the Breitling Boutique Orlando Grand Opening Event in New York City clean-shaven with only a speck of hair lingering casually on his chin. But that's not the weirdest display of male celebrity facial hair we've spotted. Behold the freakiest looks.

Blondes are notorious for having more fun but according to actress Olivia Wilde, true career satisfaction is achieved by ditching the peroxide. Read More »from Do Brunettes Get Better Acting Roles? An Analysis
During an interview on Thursday with the fashion and beauty website Into The Gloss, Wilde explains how switching up her hair hue from blonde to brunette was a professional game changer, saying:
"I spent the first couple years of my career as a very blonde blonde. And then I went brunette for a role, and suddenly all my offers changed—the types of roles people approached me with totally changed. When I was really blonde, it was always like, ‘The really pretty girl,’ or ‘The sexy hot chick.’….And then when I went brunette, the roles went to more, ‘She’s a waitress with a heart of gold, and a tough life,’ or ‘She’s a doctor.’ And I always wondered—would I have been offered those roles had I still been blonde? I don’t think so….I think the perception of brunettes being more intellectual persists...And when I went from being blonde for a long time

Bullett magazine. In fact, kissing Pitt was so vile and repulsive that the experience scarred her.Disgusting. That's how Kirsten Dunst, 30, described her infamous kiss with Brad Pitt in the 1994 film "Interview with a Vampire" in a recent interview with
"It was just a peck. Everyone at the time was like, 'You're so lucky you kissed Brad Pitt,' but I thought it was disgusting. I didn't kiss anyone else until I was 16, I think. I was a late bloomer," said Dunst.
At the time, not many people saw a kiss between a girl who had just hit double digits and a 31 year-old man as a big deal. In an 800-word review of the film, Roger Ebert had plenty to say about Tom Cruise's convincing British accent but the infamous kiss got no ink. And Entertainment Weekly gave the film a C-minus but it wasn't because a girl barely in 6th grade made out with a grown man—it was because of Pitt's "dismal" performance.
Back then, child stars were often paired with grown male romantic partners in movies. ItRead More »from Kirsten Dunst's "disgusting" kiss with Brad Pitt: Why was it ever okay?
If you haven't shell out $1,000 for a Louis Vuitton "It" bag lately, you probably didn't know that the luxury retailer has jacked up their prices. Bloomberg reports that Louis Vuitton's non-leather versions of iconic styles like the Speedy and the NeverFull bag now cost ten percent more in the US and UK, and five to ten percent in Asian markets. But the amount of time it'll take to save up for a luxury purse isn't the only thing that's changed-the style, size, spokespeople, even the reasons why you crave those It bags have evolved.

If you want to wear Jennifer Lawrence's Christian Dior Oscar gown, you have two options: You can spend around 5-figures and live off a Ramen diet. Or, you can head over to Sears for the $129 knock-off. Tough choice.
Department store Sears is selling a Jump Apparel prom dress directly inspired by the pale pink Dior Haute Couture gown Lawrence wore to the 2013 Oscar Academy Awards for $129 on sale from $218.00 (see a black version here).Read More »from Jennifer Lawrence's Dior Oscar Dress: Now You Can Wear It To Prom
“This strapless, ivory gown is adorned with a glitter print that mimics the crinkled effect of Jennifer’s dress, as well as a full skirt,” a Sears spokeswoman told Forbes.
The prom dress is just one example of a red carpet frock finding second life in chains such as Sears and Forever 21. Linda Chang, marketing director of the fashion-forward chain Forever 21 (whose retail concept is in part based on selling runway looks at budget prices) credits social media with quickly informing businesses on what consumers are gravitating toward. “Immediate access to
