“Come Clean” And Admit You Like This Hilary Duff Remix Already

I have a confession to make. I really enjoy Hilary Duff‘s music in a totally unironic way. There’s something deeply satisfying about her unapologetic brand of pop. What she lacked in vocals was more than made up for with heavy production. Anyway, we all know (erhm, maybe you don’t), Hilary has been busy with a baby so this isn’t new material. It’s the Patric Dicaprio involution remix of her song “Come Clean” which is just as well. You may remember it was the theme song to Laguna Beach. Teen Witch brought the remix to my attention. It’s pretty damn good … Continue reading “Come Clean” And Admit You Like This Hilary Duff Remix Already

Have You Seen Chairlift’s Caroline Polachek’s Hair?!

(Image via mtvhive.com; Photography by Rebecca Smeyne) The face you see Caroline Polachek, of Chairlift, making in the above photo is pretty much the same face I made at seeing her hair. Minus the clapping. She debuted this ombré-skunk-striped number at a House of Vans concert.   What the fuck?   I didn’t think the Rhyme et Reason favorite could do wrong until now.

Lana Del Rey’s Full H&M Campaign Just Revealed

(Photography by Inez & Vindooh; Images care of H&M) The complete range of images for Lana Del Rey‘s Autumn 2012 campaign for Swedish über retailer H&M have just been released and god are they good!  Naturally the lips are big. But the hair is even bigger–certainly “beauty queen style.” The retro-styled collection is equal parts pretty and polished. Per the trend, floral prints are everywhere even in fall. You’ll see blooms on tops (see above) and bottoms (see below), but they’re done a bit abstractly and feature rich warm colors. H&M was clearly “inspired” by that ubiquitous Acne mint green … Continue reading Lana Del Rey’s Full H&M Campaign Just Revealed
