Beyonce co-signs 'Snuggie' version of her 'Countdown' video

Posted by Mawuse Ziegbe July 19, 2012 02:48 PM

An enterprising Snuggie enthusiast's highly produced tribute to Beyonce has scored tons of fans online - including the Queen B herself.

A YouTube fan who goes by kkpalmer1000 uploaded a homemade version of Beyonce's "Countdown" video that has gone viral due to, well, a ton of reasons, specifically the fairly faithful recreation of the video's elaborate choreography and pop-art style editing. One of the main differences though is that the superfan swaps 'Yonce's slinky leotards for a color-shifting Snuggie.

After fans went nuts over the video online, Beyonce shared the clip on her website in a post titled "Brilliant," along with the message, "I Think he did this video better than I did :)."

Check out the original ...

And a side-by-side comparison ...

Chloe Moretz signs an age-appropriate deal with Aeropostale

Posted by Rachel Raczka July 9, 2012 01:32 PM

While fashion's love affair with pint-size style savants has gotten them into hot water in the past (Hailee Steinfeld for Miu Miu and the Fanning girls for Marc and Marc by Marc Jacobs), we think we can get behind this age-appropriate pairing: "Dark Shadows" starlet Chloe Grace Moretz as the brand ambassador for Aéropostale. The 15-year-old actress, who has been embraced by fashion insiders for her red-carpet style, will curate her picks from the collection as well as star in the brand's ad campaigns through next spring.

"I get my own section, I got to pull my own clothes. Girls can go and see what I love and what I wear in the shoots,” said Moretz in a phone interview with The Washington Post.

In case you're worried a mass market partnership might bring down her style street cred, rest assured: in addition to hiring Moretz, the brand is making an extra effort to solidify their fashion profile. A spokesperson for the brand told Women's Wear Daily that the partnership will respond with design changes, notably "newness in silhouettes and fabrications," "details such as lace and crochet," and "moderating the logo.”

While Steinfeld got slack for peddling Miu Miu's expensive wares to her 14-year-old peers, we think Moretz's decision to align with an age-conscious mall brand, where most items round out under $50, to be a smart -- and refreshing -- move for both ends.

A sneak peek of Moretz in Aéro-wares is available in video form on the brand's e-commerce website.

Rumors have been circulating recently that Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen are expecting their second child together.

On June 6, Us Weekly reported that an unnamed source confirmed the pregnancy, and cited a picture of the supermodel on June 5 as evidence of a Bundchen-Brady baby bump.

Gisele has been in Brazil lately and was spotted at an environmental event and the launch of a model contest. Here she is in her native country on June 5 waving to the camera. Us Weekly maintains she had a tiny baby bump.

Check out the picture and tell us whether you think a new addition to the Brady bunch is on the way.

Fashion hits, misses: Karolina Kurkova as Met Ball Barbie

Posted by Rachel Raczka May 11, 2012 05:11 PM

karolina-400.jpgRemember that time Marc Jacobs declared tuxedos "boring" and decided to wear an ankle-grazing lace tunic with white boxer shorts and rhinestone buckle pilgrim shoes? If not, that time actually happened last weekend at the annual Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute Gala in New York City, where the designer walked the red carpet in Commes des Garcons. And yes, it was just as bad as it sounds.

But if you don't believe us, check out this week's fashion hits and misses, where Jacobs most certainly made our list, along with statuesque model Karolina Kurkova's polarizing Rachel Zoe creation (far left, pictured with Zoe), Natalie Portman's triumphant comeback, and two "Battleship" looks that definitely sunk.

Fashion hits, misses: Black tie, baby bumps, and other misadventures

Posted by Rachel Raczka May 4, 2012 12:06 PM

Last Saturday's White House Correspondents' Association dinner gave us lots of fresh fashion meat to pick from, but there were plenty of other slip-ups and stunners throughout the week to help round out our hits and misses.

We debated how pink is too pink at the Hot Pink Party hosted by the Breast Cancer Research Foundation on April 30, what's a chic way to disguise a baby bump at a black tie affair, among other red carpet moments.

Check out our fashion hits and misses for the week of April 27-May 4.


P.S. How ah-maz-ing did Carrie Underwood look in a coral Rochas dress on the cover of June's Glamour? We can't even handle it.
