One of the most successful television dramas of all time is nearing its completion as the final season will soon draw to a close. Matthew Weiner’s Mad Men has had a great run, captivating audiences all over the world with its mid 20th century charm, excess and rich visuals. And now with a new exhibition at the Museum of the Moving Image, we can all step into the intricate world of Donald Draper and his peers. Featuring dozens of props and costumes from the show, as well as two recreated detailed sets, the exhibition opens to the public this Saturday, March 14th and runs through June 14th.

The Tenth Annual No-Pants Subway Ride: 2012 Edition

So you’re done with the excessive holiday eating? What better way to strut your new-found pounds than with the annual No-Pants Subway Ride. What originally began as a 7-person prank has now evolved into an internationally observed day of silliness. More than 4,000 people took their trousers off yesterday in New York City’s subways, and thousands more reportedly joined in around the world. Improv Everywhere organizes the annual event, where the sexy strap-hangers begin their train rides all over the city and then converge onto Union Square Park for an impromptu celebration of sorts.

Digital Surgery: Another Example of Why You’ll Never Be This Beautiful

There are those of us who are born with average looks, and there are those who are genetically gifted. Folks with great bone structure, greater than average height and fast metabolisms have always had it a little easier in life.

Fashion Week Man-Stuff Preview: Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Convertible

Just in case you forget who puts all this Fashion Week hoopla together, Mercedes-Benz kindly reminds you as soon as you enter the lobby with this stunning SLS AMG Convertible. This panty-dropping beast features Mercedes’ 6.3 liter engine which produces a disgusting 518hp and 465ft-lbs of torque. Mercedes claims this is the most powerful naturally aspirated V8 engine to date. But with looks like this, do you really care? Do you really need the 5.5 liter Turbo, or [God forbid] the 6.0 liter V12 bi-turbo? Well, depending on how short/fat/bald/old/Alpha/small-penis you are, you may want to consider the latter, with a tarmac-defacing 604hp/738lb-ft. Continue reading »

Fashion Week: JSong Way

Mercedes Benz Fashion Week is upon us and we’re kicking off the festivities with some images from yesterday’s action.

Way Zen started her JSong Way line over twenty years ago. She took a trip to the orient and quickly fell in love with the rich embroidery artisans were producing. Zen has since been producing rich, hand-crafted articles that drape a woman’s body very elegantly. JSong Way focuses on details. By using unique craft patters that eliminate visible seams when working with textures, an aesthetic balance is achieved in every individual design. Gallery after the break: Continue reading »

The Other Fashion Week Review

Before I get into the nitty gritty, I’d like to apologize for not putting this out sooner. I got into some spring cleaning a little early this year, and when my OCD kicks into code-red mode, there’s absolutely no stopping it until every surface is Windexed and every dust bunny has been slaughtered. But perhaps this disclaimer will not help the case I’m about to make.

Grouchy Cop

Flickr Photostream Friday: LUCIMA

Charles Yeh of Lucima Studios is a Los Angeles based Photographer specializing in fashion, editorial and beauty photography. Originally from Taiwan, he works almost exclusively with women, creating high profile images for magazines and various other publications. Flipping through his Photostream is like flipping through Glamour or Vogue. Not that I do that on a regular basis, I’m just sayin’. Sometimes you’re at the Doctor’s office or the car wash, or whatever waiting area and its the only thing available to “read”. All jokes aside, Charles produces some of the most consistently vibrant  pictures I’ve come across on Flickr. The models are all rail-thin and 6′ tall. Basically runway material. Head on over to Flickr to check out Charles’ photostream for your weekly dose of eye candy. Continue reading »
