Live Your Best Life in Big Mac Clothes, Sleep on Sexy Big Mac Sheets

McDonald's is having a great week.

H&M's Coachella Line is Everything Wrong with 'Coachella Style'

Fashion, at its best, is about fantasy. And at its worst—it's about that, too. It fails in the moments where the concept of something supersedes its functionality, its aesthetic merit, or both. Fantasy, if half-baked and gestural, can be fashion's undoing. This is nowhere more apparent than in H&M's recently released » 3/24/15 5:32pm Tuesday 5:32pm

Fashion designers Dolce and Gabbana made some awfully regressive comments about lifestyles, babies, and sexuality in a recent interview. "We oppose gay adoptions," was one such comment.

I Tried on Target's New Plus Size Line So You Don't Have To

Meh. That's what I give Target's new AVA+VIV plus-size collection. To me the new AVA + VIV line is just more of the same of what I've come to expect of plus-size clothing. For the most part designers seem to think that all we plus-size ladies deserve is basics and that we should be happy to even get anything. A video » 3/20/15 2:30pm 3/20/15 2:30pm

Nile Rodgers' Chic Drops 1st Video in 20 Years, Starring Karlie Kloss

Nile Rodgers' legendary disco-soul band Chic has reunited, but "I'll Be There," the group's first single and video in 20 years, is like they never left. Pulling Kimberly Davis and Folami's super-slick vocals over that indelible, driving disco lifeforce that is Rodgers' guitar style, the group is clearly making good on… » 3/20/15 12:50pm 3/20/15 12:50pm

Tenbo Spotlights Models With Disabilities at Tokyo Fashion Week

Tokyo Fashion Week is in full swing, and as ever it's already more interesting and creative than the majority of the corpo garb that dominated New York, Paris, and Milan (London was fine). Case in point: on Wednesday at Tenbo, designer Takafumi Tsuruta showed bright, dotty skirts and ties, the label's cartoon-cute… » 3/18/15 2:50pm 3/18/15 2:50pm

The Best Looks From This Week's RuPaul's Drag Race

This was the week in which the queens were tested in their acting skills—the episode which, despite Michelle Visage's decree that "girl you are a drag queen, you are experienced in acting," inevitably ends up in a shitshow of epic proportions. And this season, the tragedies were literally Shakespearean, as Ru… » 3/17/15 9:30pm 3/17/15 9:30pm
