Topshop (which knows a thing or two about trends) is selling faded, super-high waisted mom jeans, and can’t keep them in stock. Says Fashionista (who ALSO knows a thing or two about trends): “I tried them on and loved everything about them – the ultra high waist, the pale blue color, the cropped length, and the overall Saved by the Bell-ness. And now I own them and am honestly having a hard time not wearing them every single day.” Budding style goddess Elle Fanning agrees. “Even now, I won’t wear the skinny-jeans style, because most people wear those — they have to be baggier, boyfriend-looking, or sort of like a mom jean,” she told New York. “I’m real funny that way.” Funny like a FOX. Get yours ASAP!
You know you’d still hit it. Sure, you probably spent the ’90s drooling over either Brandon or Dylan and you never gave Steve much thought, but the old guy’s holding up pretty well, don’t you think? So well, in fact, that he’ll be taking off his clothes as a guest headliner for the Las Vegas production of male dance revue Chippendales. Ziering’s four-week stint with the show will include performances every Thursday through Sunday at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino on the Las Vegas strip. He’ll conclude his run on June 30. ”Actors and performers never know what their next job will be, and when I got the call from Chippendales, my jaw dropped as it came on the heels of TMZ calling me fat on national TV,” said Ian in a statement about his new gig. “I am passionate about health and fitness, so I’ve kept in shape, and dancing is something I’ve always enjoyed, so I figured why not?” (via US)
Says Method Man of this picture: “We were doing something for TRL and Britney was there, and you know me and Redman like to clown around a lot and we were taking a picture. And if you see the picture that we took I’m leaning over into her cause I whispered something into her ear. I whispered, ‘You got a fat ass for a white girl,’ but no, I meant it as a compliment. And this is how professional Britney is, she waited for the picture to stop and as soon as the picture was over she looked at me and said, ‘Thank you’… And I looked at her like, ‘You’re welcome’. She knew I was telling the truth.” (via IChooseDisco)
Over 150 oral histories for the New Museum of New York’s city-wide campaign called “Recalling 1993″ are now accessible at every surviving pay phone in Manhattan by simply dialing (toll-free) 1-855-FOR-1993. I told some stories about life in the ’90s. One piece of JSJ audio can be heard on the majority of pay phones throughout Chelseam My other pieces of audio can be heard on pay phones in these specific locations;
N/E corner 6th Ave. & 19th
S/E corner 6th Ave. & 21st St.
S/E corner 6th & 22nd St.
outside 280 e. 2nd St. between Ave C & D
N/W corner 12th St. & Ave. B
If you’re in one of those neighborhoods, look for a payphone and CALL ME UP!
Omg you guys, it’s JTT! The only boy I’ll ever love! And he looks SENSATIONAL! Well, doable. He talks to People about his TRIUMPHANT return to television in that Tim Allen thing, Last Man Standing. “Why now?” inquires People. “They asked me,” he says simply. Wait. We just had to ask? We’ve been without JTT all these years because NOBODY ASKED for him? We’re such DOPES. We should start asking him for EVERYTHING. RuPaul’s Drag Race, Million Dollar Listing, YouTube videos… Hey JTT, I’m running to Baja Fresh for lunch, wanna come? (via Boy Culture)
This is so thrilling, I’m actually a part of this! I’m in the trailer here! The New Museum has commandeered all 5,000 of the remaining pay phones in Manhattan, and if you call 1-855-FOR-1993 from any one of them, you can hear a story of what was happening on that block in 1993. I did a recording where I talked about some of the craziest shit that happened to me that year – and trust me, it was BATSHIT INSANE. From the teaser trailer: “In the early ’90s New YorK was a city in turmoil. 1993 was a pivotal year that began to shape the New York we know today. The New Museum NYC 1993: Experimental Jet Set, Trash and No Star transports you back to what life was like back then. “Recalling 1993″ takes you out of the museum and to every street corner in Manhattan using one of the last remaining relics of that time, the pay phone. “
