Neo-Nazi Design on Marc Jacob Tees?

Marc Jacobs $70 teeshirt was pulled off the shelves of Nordstrom and some other stores after complaints of the graphics of a boot on the spendy little T were shown to be almost exactly like the graphics used by a  Neo Nazi group called Skrewdrive ,one of the first white-power rock groups on their “Boots & Braces”.  The combat boots were the cover for their album.

A Spokesperson for the brand said, “It has been brought to our attention that the imagery on a T-shirt of ours is similar to that used by a band,”.

“We were not trying to make a connection to that band or make a statement of any kind. We have removed the stock of the shirt from our own stores and offer our retail partners the same opportunity.”

Sak’s is still selling them. It was noted by some observers on Gawk, the site that first called attention to the fact of the graphics, “I think people who pay 70 bucks for a T-shirt aren’t hanging out at grimy punk…hangouts, nor should they be responsible for not knowing the fact that their new shirt is a ripoff of a Skrewdriver shirt.”

Which prompted the reply by another observer,  “I feel like people buying $70 T-shirts are clueless about a lot of things.”

The New JLo Barbie Doll

Well, Mattel you have done it again. You have made a new doll in the likeness of Jennifer Lopez and once again have made her figure unrecognizable to anything that resembles JLo’s curvy body

Well, Mattel  you have done it again. You have made a new doll in the likeness of Jennifer Lopez and once again have made the figure of the doll unrecognizable to anything that resembles JLo’s curvy body. Just as the original Barbie doll is overly exaggerated to be an unrealistic version of a woman, you have cut the curves from Jennifer like you were slicing corned beef in a deli; ultra thin and very unsatisfying to receive.

Jennifer has long embraced her curvalicious form to the great delight of millions of fans. She has built her wardrobe around her booty and her thighs to show she is proud of her womanly figure and not afraid to show it. But Mattel in their misogynistic-type judgement has decided Jennifer is not perfect enough to show in true form but needed a little sculpting.  Hence the doll that looks like Jenny From the Block’s super skinny counterpart.

Let’s compare the two, shall we? Here are the dolls, dressed in outfits Jennifer has worn in real life. On the whole the dolls are pretty but with the trademark look that Mattel has established as a “real” woman’s body; big boobs, small waist, skinny thighs.

The doll is obviously not playing up her “ass”ets and is another disappointment to real women everywhere when the doll maker is once again promoting the idea that the “real woman” is going to be 36-18-33 in measurements. (Maybe in the 1800’s when women were wearing whalebone corsets and squeezing their innards into organ damaging shapes.) For once, I would like to see a doll that really shows the configuration of the person that they are trying to sell.

‘Tis The Season For Celebrity Babies

We thought this past summer was the season for celebrity babies but Kerry Washington, Olivia Wilde, and Kristin Cavallari proved us wrong.

We thought this past summer was the season for celebrity babies but Kerry Washington, Olivia Wilde, and Kristin Cavallari proved us wrong. Scandal star is expecting her first child. This is yet another surprise announcement from People’s Best Dressed Woman winner. Earlier this year, she revealed a secret wedding with her now husband, 49ers cornerback, Nnamdi Asomugha. We’re definitely excited to see her pregnancy style on and off camera.

Kerry Washington

And we just got a glimpse of Olivia Wilde’s pregnancy style yesterday when she made her first public appearance since revealing her pregnancy. The actress looked beautiful in a Cushnie Et Ochs figure-hugging dress at the International Women’s Media Foundation’s Courage in Journalism Awards in Beverly Hills. The dress was classy yet still sexy and showed us that she’s just as or maybe even more glamorous with her baby bump. This will be her and her husband, Jason Sudeikis’, first child.

And former Hills star, Kristin Cavallari, is pregnant with baby number two. Cavallari and her husband, football player, Jay Cutler, celebrated their son’s first birthday over the summer and have expressed their desire for a big family. Cavallari told E! News that she “want[s] a little girl, but if I had another boy I would be so excited as well.” We loved Cavallari’s bohemian chic style when she was pregnant with Camden, so we can’t wait to see what look she goes for the second time around.
