Video: ‘You Don’t Own Me’ –Lena Dunham, Tracee Ellis Ross, Tavi, Alexa Chung, Etc.

01 November 2012, 22.22 | Posted in celebrity | No comments »

Did you guys see this last week? It came out just before #Sandy hit. Watch if you need some post-storm cheering up because it’s so fun. Lesley Gore, who originally recorded the ’60s hit “You Don’t Own Me,” put together a video featuring the song as lip synched by a bunch of very cool females, including Lena Dunham, Tracee Ellis Ross, Tavi Gevinson and Alexa Chung among many others. Here’s the message according to Gore, who speaks at the end of the video:

Women, let’s rise up. Our vote alone can win this election. A vote for Obama is a vote for your health and your right to choose. It is a vote for equal pay and equal rights. A vote for Obama is a vote for our families. It is a vote to marry who you choose. It’s a vote to start a family when you choose. A vote for Obama says that we won’t stand for violence against women and that rape is rape. Our vote ensures that our daughters will grow up with the same rights that we’ve had. A vote for Obama sends a message: This war on women must end. We will not go backwards.

Baby-girl cheezing at :30 is melting my heart down.to.the.ground! Also, can I just say–I cannot wait to pull the lever for Barack Hussein Obama on Tuesday November 6th, super excited ’bout it!

Ad: Kate Moss For Rag & Bone

24 July 2012, 16.04 | Posted in Models, advertisement, celebrity | 1 comment »


Rag & Bone is opening its first European store in London, and the label tapped Kate Moss to front its ad campaign, as shot by Craig McDean. Rag & Bone will also show during London Fashion Week during September, and from what I’m reading, the the London ad campaign and runway show are a first for the brand.

As for Moss, my co-editor, SGP, and I were just chatting about her recent rise among male fashion watchers.  She’s been an icon forever and a day in the fashion world of women (to the point where it’s like, oh boy, another Kate Moss ad, cover, runway??) , but it seems over the past couple of years there’s been this uptick in interest for her by the fellas. Search through the posts on our sibling sites, where the guys post more about Moss more than we do, and check the popularity of her Supreme t-shirt to see what we mean.

We have this theory that the guys who once never noticed her now find her attractive because she’s a grown and accomplished female, whose credentials as a successful wife, mom and business woman are established. Sort of how young male chimps lust after more mature, alpha female chimp ladies. Not that dudes are animals or anything (even though we all actually are), but there is something to be said about a woman whose looks are still working and who has all her ducks in line.

If you’re hankering for some of the super femmy full skirts and dresses that were a big theme on Spring 2012 runways, we’ver rumaged through Etsy’s closet (which sometimes made us weep and not in a good way–will hippie looks NEVER die?) and found the best ones, all handmade, customizable and considerably cheaper than LV’s version.

MelissaJasonWu 1 540x452 Project LV: Melissa x Jason Wu & Gareth Pugh

Okay folks, up until now my Magic/Project posts have been somewhat hampered by the fact that I left my laptop in Brooklyn (it’s always something–one time I forgot bras and only had the bikini top I was wearing!) so get ready for a barrage of posts, which will mostly be shoe themed. This post features “Plastic Dreams” shoe brand, Melissa, famous for its creative collabos. On this page the collaboree is Jason Wu and there is more of him, plus Gareth Pugh on the next page. Images from these collabos showed up a month or so ago online, but I think we have some new colors plus one of the Pugh shoes was only shown in the form of a sketch, though do not quote me on that.

p.s. Massive shout out and thanks to men’s fashion blogger Marcus Troy who organized the “Blogger Project,” which we were invited to participate in while at Project. A well organized, stimulating and super fun experience, which we appreciated the opportunity to be a part of.

More Melissa on the next page.

Melissa ‘Time Code’ Collection Autumn 2011

18 February 2011, 14.24 | Posted in Shoes, Trade Show, boots, sandals | 4 comments »

Melissa (1)

Melissa showed an Autumn 2011 collection, titled “Time Code,” with each style name after ways we spend our time: “Kissing,” “Waiting,” “Making,” etc. What’s different  and exciting about the brand is all the new material offerings. The pumps on this page are still “plastic dreams,” but during the manufacutring process, a velvet material is blown on the shoe, resulting in a lightweight and waterproof shoe. And since velvet is having a moment, we are loving it. Many more styles on the next page including a convertable fur rain boot and another Alexandre Herchcovitch collaboration, this time a super neat Beatle boot. There are also menswear-inspired oxfords and for the first time sneakers! More on the next page with all images via Highsnobette.
