The Find: Salvador Dali Mae West-Inspired Lipstick by Rubylips

Had to share this triumph of an eBay find. The estate of Surrealist icon Salvador Dali for some strange and wonderful reason has a beauty line. It's primarily made up of fragrances that feature packaging and bottles inspired by Dali's lips and nose pieces. But a few years ago, they released the most amazing lipstick tube only in Europe. This red lipstick (can't get enough red lipsticks!) in particular was designed after Dali's famous red sofa that was fashioned after Mae West's lips.

And it only cost me $3.00.

I'm hesitant to actually use the lipstick since it's probably quite old, but I'm considering replacing it with a high-quality one worthy of Dali's lips. Even the thought of the tube knocking around in my purse pains me, but if I don't use it, what's the point of scoring such a treasure!

Resort Wear, Ready-To-Wear, INJURY WEAR: Mariah Carey's Custom Slings

While I'm trudging away on the music journalism front, I posted a slideshow today that may be one of my favorites so far this year. And fashion-related, hence popping it over here! 

With Mariah Carey slaying all accessories with her fur/feather/ornate arm slings last Friday in New York, I put together some more music stars with chic injuries for Yahoo! Music.

I smell a Halloween costume....

Punk & Op Art Street Chic From Versus by Versace

Boy: Trench, $1,150; Pants, $495; Boots, $425; Shirt, $495. Girl: Op Art Tee, $195; Pants, $395; Boots & Hoodie, Not Avail

Just popping back in to share one of my fave diffusion collections this season, Versace's re-imaged Versus collection. Fairly straight-forward in concept, yet undeniably Donatella, the mixed (It) bag of graphic-scapes, opulent colors, studded leather, and signature Versace prints has me dying a little inside -- in a very, very good way.

It's a pretty reminiscent of the Versace x H&M collection, but undoubtedly uses much more luxurious materials. 

One of my goals for "adulthood": No more faux anything.

Also, gotta give them props for using my girl Brooke Candy's track "Everybody Does" in their collection trailer:

Model Saskia De Brauw Plays David Bowie, Face Of Saint Laurent Menswear

One of the greatest things 2013 has thus far brought the universe is the return of long-silent rock icon David Bowie. Just this week he released a music video for his second single "The Stars (Are Out Tonight)", featuring androgyn superstars Tilda Swinton and Andrej Pejic, whom I've raved about before.

But a face I did not recognize was the one who played a young Bowie, 31-year-old Dutch model Saskia De Brauw. There's a lot to be said about a model who can ditch the industry at 16 to pursue her art, then return full-force at 29, nabbing Vogue covers, show openers and every desirable campaign.

After a little clicking around cyberspace, De Brauw absolutely stopped my heart as the face of Saint Laurent SS13... Saint Laurent menswear that is. Shot by YSL Creative Director Hedi Slimane, Slimane's penchant for androgyny, artists and musicians over the usual fleet of overbred, underfed models is a beacon in the industry. I haven't been so taken by a campaign since actor Sam Riley posed for Burberry shortly after portraying Joy Division's Ian Curtis in Control. There's just something about a delicate, disillusioned "boy" in a slim suit. Very throwback Dior Homme.

Current Hero: Porn Revolutionary Cindy Gallop

UK-born New Yorker Cindy Gallop is an endlessly chic, intelligent, confident, articulate entrepreneur who also happens to maintain a "stable" of twenty-something men she sleeps with and watches hardcore porn on the reg--we love her! Founder of, she's taking strides to re-educate the country about sex where, due to a lack of comprehensive, frank and realistic sex education, the exponentially prevalent hardcore porn industry becomes the baseline. Not only that, her apartment is unbelievably badass.
