Sweetface Not So Sweet - J-Lo

Long after the flop of her much-hyped Sweetface label, Jennifer Lopez is planning on taking legal action against fashion designer (and hen-pecked collaborator) Andy Hilfiger for his apparent lack of ability. The former partners split after the high-priced follow up to her moderately successful J.Lo line hit the skids after New York Fashion Week in 2005. (From the moment the first model stepped onto the crystal-covered catwalk, expectations were low among fashion editors and retailers who predicted "more flash than fashion." Go figure.)When the Sweetface label launched, Simon Doonan (creative director of New York's prestigious Barneys department store) told the Sun-Herald that the Lopez show lowered the standards of the industry event. "We have given celebrities these deranged feelings of omnipotence. She'll be doing brain surgery next," he said. (Oh, Simon. Be still my beating heart. Your quips are still funny two years after the fact.)The real problem seems to be that Jennifer actually took a bite out of her own bullsh*t sandwich, believing that women would pay gourmet restaurant prices for drive-through designs. And, while my heart goes out to Andy Hilfiger (who obviously had little or no say in the final fashion aesthetic) it would have saved him some grief in the long run if he'd just grown a backbone early in the process and kicked the designer-wannabe diva to the curb.Still, after all is said and done, I have one question left unanswered: Why Sweetface and not Sweetass?

Dirty, Dreamy, or Disgusting?

Move over McDreamy and make room for McIcky. It appears metrosexuality is finally losing it's steam. You don't have to look far to find a half-decent Hollywood hottie or pseudo-celeb (sorry Justin Bobby) appearing as if they've just rolled out of bed. (And this aint just bed head sister, this is bed everything.)Lucky for the rest of us, the "pajama game" trend is just around the corner. Fashion designers like Junya Watanabe, Miu Miu, and Lanvin will make sure that men don't have roll out of bed in their pj's to get this look in 2008. Clothes will now come wrinkled and mismatched right off the rack! (Bed head and scruffy beard not included.) But don't worry, genie pants are also coming back (thanks Dior!) so your man will have his pick of McIcky or MC Hammer. *sigh*By the way, if you're wondering who's doing scruffy best, my picks are: Johnny Borrell, Keanu Reeves, Matthew McConaughey, and Adrian Grenier. ( Johnny Depp wasn't added to the list -- that's a given!)
