When you first read this, you’re kind of like ‘Wait, there IS no Radiohead anymore. Only Atoms for Peace or Thom Yorke or Ultraista or whatever.’ Then you realize it’s 1997. And that’s why it makes WAY more sense that U2 got 18 plus ones and Marilyn Manson 14. Then, at the top of the list, showing great promise is the presence of the Beastie Boys (and eight friends) and Blur (plus eight friends). I was only a 15-year-old when this happened but I would’ve gone to the show. “Karma Police” was the coolest video in rotation on MTV at the time. Right?
The magazine that’s been around since 1885 has some tips for you. That’s right, Good Housekeeping’s website has 125 Years Of Look Good Tips listed. Some of them are pretty cool, including the older ones that still hold true – Motto for makeup: Use very little, but choose very well. — January 1933. Clearly, their advice has held up.
A new show made it’s debut last night on Bravo, called Kell on Earth. The show features Kelly Cutrone who can also be seen on MTV’s The City. One of our favorite bloggers, Lilliana Vazquez is a fan, and Bravo has more information on the show itself.
GQ has a bunch of Fall 2010 pictures on their website. In fact, they have everything from Armani to Zenga, including information on each designer. Nice.
Lastly, Allure gives the scoop on RuPaul’s favorite beauty products.

On a personal note, I discovered curvy jeans for myself this weekend. I had heard about them but never tried. They’re not plus size jeans, just jeans cut a little more generously in the hip and thighs, resulting in no gap between the jeans and waist, as well as an overall more flattering look. Basically, a Godsend. Buying jeans can be a traumatic experience, and this cut of jeans definitely made things easier. I snatched a couple pairs of the curvy jeans at Express, which they refer to as the Eva cut, but there are jeans cut for a curvier figure at Gap, Old Navy and Ann Taylor Loft.

To help you de-stress, Philadelphia Magazine has the scoop on 5 amazing massages for less. Make sure you mention their article when you go to get a rubdown (woohoo!) because it might save you a few bucks. Karl Lagerfeld produced a calendar for Italian Marie Claire and it’s gorgeous.
We’re also newly obsessed with Alexa Chung since we made a trip up to NYC yesterday to see one of her last tapings. We don’t know what’s up next for her, we’re hoping something good. We love how she styles her skinny mini self. MTV also has a style guide for Christmas, including a Kanye West inspired shirt that reads “Imma let you finish.”
Here’s a clip from It’s On With Alexa Chung, featuring a 2 second sighting of yours truly:
In addition to cute party dresses and sparkly accessories, Express has some videos that you might want to take a peek at. Featured in the videos are Erin Kaplan & Roxy Olin from MTV’s The City, and Vogue.TV
If you yawn throughout the day, Real Beauty’s slide show Solving Your Personal Energy Crisis might be just what you need. They also want to help you get rid of under eye circles. It’s something we sometimes struggle with and makeup tricks are always good to know. Our favorite feature on Real Beauty? Being able to personalize your experience by creating your own Beauty Book. Create a login, and plug in your complexion & hair type along with any skin issues that you might have like acne or dry skin as well as a lifestyle choice like weight loss, or building tone. After you select these, Real Beauty will generate a ‘book’ that appears as a floating menu bar on the bottom of the screen while you are visiting the site.
Lastly, keeping with our affinity for keeping up with MTV’s The Hills & The City, Audrina Patridge of The Hills fame is creating a 12 Days of Christmas list. While Perez Hilton may call her ceiling eyes, we have to hand it to her for maintaining a blog – or getting someone else to. Whichever.
We’re feeling a little bad this morning about whoever had the job of pulling this ad from today’s Inquirer. Looks like they’re going to have some ’splainin’ to do.
Halloween is a perfect time to try outrageous makeup, and that’s just what some ladies at Glamour did. They even learned some tips and tricks.
Lastly, MTV re-aired an episode of True Life last night, which we love. This episode was good. Maybe they weren’t the most cuddly characters, but the girls featured in True Life: I’m a Compulsive Shopper were really interesting,
The 25th VMAs have come and gone without any major disaster. What a total bum-out!
Many of this year’s stars took their fashion direction from the man himself, MTV’s Moon Man. Perhaps it was an act of positive visualization; Britney took home 3 of the mini-me’s and the Pussycat Dolls, one.
