UnBeige Lends its Keen Eye to the NYT

Congratulations to our sister blog UnBeige! They are featured in today’s New York Times Home&Garden section as one of the seven design blogs the Times turned to for shopping guidance

Because design bloggers are expert sifters and seekers, as well as tireless sorters and linkers, spending more time online than is perhaps ocularly prudent, they make the keenest guides to all that is urgent, odd and delightful in the design world at any given moment. So the Home section asked the eyes behind seven sites to share their favorite new things for fall, and collected those choices into an experts’ guide to what’s in stores right now.

Imitation is the Sincerest Form of Something

Probably before the Internet, and its pesky quota-filling bloggers, it was a lot easier to borrow magazine images without drawing a lot of attention. No longer! In the past few months it’s been similar images of Barack Obama that have garnered the most attention. However, today we bring you two new additions the “wait, where have I seen that before” category. First, via the folks over at UnBeige comes this month’s Vanity Fair cover of Carla Bruni, which looks a whole lot 2005′s Vanity Fair cover of Paris Hilton (talk about a one-trick pony).

Next, let us draw your attention to the (slightly less obvious) resemblance between a Harper’s 2006 “World Without Oil” cover and the images from this month’s “World Without Oil” feature from GQ (seriously, was it that hard to think up a new title?). What is also interesting to note in this case is that GQ editor Jim Nelson was Harper’s readings editor until 1997, furthermore the author of GQ‘s oil piece, Benjamin Kunkel, has written for Harper’s.

Shop Til You Drop (RED)

UnBeige, the design blog, has been following the fuss over AdAge’s pilloring of (RED), the do-good hardgoods campaign. Dreamed up by Bono, chaired by Kennedy spawn Bobby Shriver and shilled for by Steven Spielberg, Christy Turlington, Oprah and Chris Rock, (RED) spent something like $100 mil. on marketing to make $18 mil. back.

CEO Shriver wrote to correct Mya Frazer’s piece. Then, laughingly-named The Independent did their own investigation, and surprise, surprise! (RED) is absolutely fabulous! FBNY helpfully points out that Bono guest-edited the paper last year.

FBLA loves it when celebrities write big checks. Why don’t all concerned do that little thing and quit trying to part the rest of us from our take-home pay?
