Fashion News: Thierry Lasry for Sretsis

The bad boy of eyewear (he once designed a range of one-lensed, pirate-inspired shades), Thierry Lasry is lending his touch to a new line of daisy-dotted sunglasses for Thai clothing label Sretsis. Made from cornflower blue and Liberty-print acetate, they come in two dreamy styles: Daisy Asphixy and Daisy Vulgary.

Rock of Angels: Women in Music 2010

“Tights and leggings are okay in my book, but pants are just so boring.”
Just when we thought our bottle-blond pop stars couldn’t get any weirder, a whiskey-fueled, glitter-encrusted 23-year-old named Ke$ha proved us so very wrong, unleashing her hard-partying manifesto “Tik Tok,” in which she compares herself to P. Diddy and boasts about brushing her teeth with a “bottle of Jack.” The daughter of country songwriter Pebe Sebert, Ke$ha wrote most of her debut album, Animal, while she was “broke as hell,” living out of her car in Los Angeles and recording background vocals for artists like Flo Rida. “People give me grief about my lyrics,” she says, “but I try to show the freedom to be yourself, unapologetically and irreverently.” This summer, she’ll take her wacky live show on the road—she’s known for wearing headdresses and doing cartwheels onstage—opening for Rihanna. “If I don’t perform so hard that I feel like I’m gonna throw up, I didn’t do a good job,” she insists, though as her music suggests, her shows aren’t the overproduced spectacles of her blond counterparts. “I just have fun.”

Taylor Lautner on the Spotlight

Taylor Lautner goes shirtless again in "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse," proving yet again that he has a six-pack to die for. Playing Jacob the hunky werewolf the third time around puts Lautner in the middle of some intense competition with Edward for the love of Bella, finally giving him the opportunity to kiss Kristen Stewart.

Taylor revealed to's Jeanne Wolf why he might be willing to go that far for love.

Fight for the one you love.
"One of the biggest things I admire about Jacob is his persistence. He keeps going and fights for what he believes in. You've got to love a girl quite a bit to fight that much for her. I guess maybe I'd be the same way if I loved somebody the way that Jacob loves Bella. But he's in a tough little love triangle, and I don't envy that."

What it takes to be romantic in real life.
"I don't know if I'm the best person to answer that question. One of my favorite movies is 'The Notebook,' so I think I'd consider that a little bit romantic. I've given a flower or two. But I like something simple -- not like going out and doing something extremely extravagant. It's more like just being able to talk to each other. I think, besides the gifts and the flowers, romance comes from just talking with her from your heart."

The big lip-lock with Bella.
"Jacob's been waiting for that moment for a while. It wasn't awkward. It was different. Like, Kristen and I would finish and pull away and she'd look at me and there'd be a moment of silence and she'd say, 'Taylor, we just kissed.' And I'd be like, 'Yeah, we did.' That was pretty much it. I found it a lot harder to pretend I hated Rob Pattinson. He and I are good friends, and he's too nice. He needs to roughen up a little bit, so I can actually hate him. We ruined plenty of takes just because we couldn't keep a straight face when we are yelling and screaming at each other."

Keeping his toned bod in perspective.
"It's healthy and it sort of becomes addictive. It's addicting to get into the gym and work to get that muscle. And the healthy eating is good too. But, luckily for me, my friends couldn't care less. They tease me and mess with me about the shirtless thing and about my little jean shorts. It's all good because it keeps me from looking in the mirror."

Two different worlds.
"I live in this world where people scream at me when I walk down the street, but then I live in the same world that I always did before. I go home, spend time with my family and friends, and it's the same as it always was. When I'm not working I'm probably doing nothing. I do like to watch TV."

Remembering his high school days.
"I didn't have, like, a certain group of friends that I hung out with every single day, I was more of the type that kind of just roamed around and spent time with a wide variation of people. I don't know, it sounds so cheesy, but I love people in general, like meeting new people."

Action without a werewolf costume.
"As an actor you want to challenge yourself to do as many different things as possible. Next, I'm in 'Abduction' with Alfred Molina, Sigourney Weaver, Maria Bello, and Jason Isaacs. I had to do boxing and fight training, learn how to ride a motorcycle and I think I'll still have to do some swimming training. Overall, it's pretty intense. There'll be a lot of stunts and I'm looking forward to it."


Fashion Don'ts This Week.

Miley Cyrus tried to prove she "Can't Be Tamed" in leather bell-bottoms and giant shoulder pads on Thursday's "Late Show With David Letterman," but ended up looking like a little girl playing '80s rock star.

Rihanna paired scary harem pants and frightening bright red locks atop a shaved head as she arrived in her native Barbados on Wednesday. Yikes!

Katie Holmes was all smiles at the premiere of hubby Tom Cruise's "Knight and Day" in Spain, but her pale, ruffled Azzedine Alaia frock did absolutely nothing to flatter her legs or her chest.

We don't know what to say anymore about Ashley Olsen, who seems forever determined to drape her tiny self in odd combos of oversized duds, as she did at a YSL fragrance launch on Thursday.

Victoria's Secret model Selita Ebanks aged herself 20 years in this matronly one-shoulder gown from BCBG Max Azria and tacky, feathered Roger Vivier heels at Samsung's Hope for Children Benefit on Tuesday.

Blondie singer Debbie Harry looked more like a suburban Florida granny than a legendary rocker as she left her hotel in Manchester, England. Yeah, we're gonna pass on her offer to "Call Me."

"California Gurl" Katy Perry's endless parade of mini dresses this week included some winners ... and some losers, like this barely there, leopard-print Dolce & Gabbana nightmare that would be more appropriate worn as a nightgown.

Um, is it just us, or did Alexa Ray Joel look like an eclectic mess outside her Manhattan hotel on Friday? The hipster hat, the bare midriff, and those hideous high-waisted shorts have got to go!

Another lovely lady who looked like she was trying too hard? Emmy Rossum, who had waaay too much going as she hung out in Beverly Hills on Wednesday in a weird sweater and shorts combo.

The frou frou pink getup Holly Madison donned Wednesday was bad enough before she added a headband and a candy cane-striped bag. Let's get a stylist over here, stat!


Valentino: Spring 2010

Valentino's Spring 2010 Collection


Sorry kids, I've waited long enough for this.

Yes I did! I've never missed a single Toy Story movie. From those cheap cartoons and now on 3d! :) Is is showing already? It says June 18! I'll be posting a review after I've watched it. :)


Viva Vena Collection

A few month's ago Vena Cava announced their new line of basics, Viva Vena! Half of Manhattan (the girl half) jumped for joy at the news, even before seeing the clothes.  The collection finally hits stores next month, but Elle got a first look at the whole thing.
Sophie Buhai and Lisa Mayock's signature prints come on fitted tees and tiny dresses over black skirts and skinny pants in jersey and silk.  If silver metallic tanks are your thing, they've got you covered.  If you prefer simple white t-shirt dresses, there's that, too — spiced up with a little print of course.

Megan Fox's 18-inch Corset

At the taping of Jonah Hex, Fox was forced to wear an 18-inch corset for her role as Lilah, the gun-wielding vixen. "It's small," she tells MTV News. "We got it down to 18 inches. But in the action scenes, we loosened it up, because everyone was afraid I was going to pass out."
Her midsection ached even went she removed the corset.
"At the end of the day when we would take it off, it would leave these deep grooves, these deep indents from the boning in the corset," Fox says. "I'd have it for the whole next day. The next 24 hours I'd be imprinted with the corset. It hurts your ribs!"  By the end of the movie, she says the costume corsets "were all falling apart ... I beat them to hell." Still, she says she'd slip into a corset again if the right role called for it. "I do think there's a place for corsets," says Fox. "I think they should come back. They should make a reappearance. I enjoy them, but maybe I'm sick."

2010 Tony Awards

Scarlett Johansson -- who won the Featured Actress in a Play prize for her debut performance in "A View from the Bridge" -- sparkled as always in a gorgeous green gown and bouffant updo upon arriving at the 64th Annual Tony Awards at NYC's Radio City Music Hall.

Right behind ScarJo was her hunk of a husband, Ryan Reynolds, who kept it simple yet super sexy in a black suit.

Will Smith dared to be different in a patterned tux, while wife Jada Pinkett Smith had fun in a sassy ruffled frock that showcased her gorgeous gams.

Cate Blanchett made a fashion statement in a silver, futuristic pantsuit. Was it a hit ... or a miss?

Forget Michael Douglas, all eyes were on his wife of 10 years, Catherine Zeta-Jones, who stole the spotlight in a periwinkle gown fit for a princess.
