Pregnant is the new black. Did you guys go to Coachella? Did you make-out with that hologram? These girls didn't, but their phones might have. [Cultist Zine] Oh, and speaking of holograms...TLC might be back. [New York Times] As women's health shrivels like a penis in a freezing cold swimming pool, we ask why all the anti-choice? [Gallup] Hold the phone. Slutever went blonde. The world is officially round. [Slutever] Megan Fox has that dude from 90210 living inside of her. [E!Online] How does one get on a first name basis with Bieber and Oprah? Stalking. Do we love her or feel really bad for her? [Jezebel] Maybe us big city girls need to ditch the chemicals and get high off running? [New York Times]
Tupac is alive (sort of) and performs Hail Mary and 2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted at Coachella Imagine being at Coachella, watching the Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre show and all of a sudden Tupac raises on stage and starts performing "Hail Mary." Well, that happened. Using some sort of crazy technology (also used in Japan to make pop stars) a realistic hologram of Tupac was created, and "Tupac" can rap, dance and even get the crowd live. Finishing his performance with "2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted" with Snoop, the two rappers even interact with one another at times. Though this has been used before (again, see Japanese pop star video), it hasn't been used to bring back celebrities from the dead. The opportunities could be endless. Maybe Elvis will be going on tour next summer, Biggie will be playing Madison Square Gardens or Whitney Houston will perform her own memorial concert. Musicians that are still alive could even use it--Beyonce could have concerts across the world the same night. Most of us revel at the idea of seeing our favorite lost performers on stage again, but it is a little weird. Is Tupac performing at Coachella creepy or cool? Who would you want to or not want to see resurrected on stage?
First, Suzanne Ford Carafano created Spanish Moss Vintage, an online boutique specializing in thrifted statement pieces. Then she added a "Shop New" section for independent designers, which included Sophomore, Babooshka and Breanna Lee. After that was off the ground, she added her own designs to the mix. Carafano's line, American Gold is manufactured in California both literally and figuratively. It's a rockstar in a dive bar or a movie star in the desert. It's Emmylou Harris on the cover of Elite Hotel and it's Alessandra Ambrosio at this year's Coachella. The Autumn/Winter '10 collection from American Gold, titled: the Virgin and the Gypsy, stays on trend with black lace and patterned tights, but features shaggy tops that give the looks Carafano's signature nostalgic vibe. American Gold is for those who see the romance in roadside flea markets and thunderstorms (both listed as inspirations) and those who treasure unique clothes that will stay in their closet year after year. Check out the whole American Gold autumn/winter 2010 collection here.
