I got an email from the XL Center here in CT saying there were tickets newly available for the Black-Eyed Peas concert and I found myself incredibly tempted to go. I’m a fan of the music but I think it has more to do with all the amazing outfits they’ve been parading around this tour. I want to see these things LIVE.
But here’s Fergie’s most recent off-stage appearance:
Girl. I love it. And this picture cinches it: welcome to the superhero fold, darling. Not only is this deliciously heroine chic, the backdrop gives us the perfect name.
This is thanks to Rachel and she is entirely right. Look at this kid:
She’s adorable, of course, but pairing that dress with those BOOTS just shoots her right up into the heroine chic record books. I want to give her her own super-team made up of under ten year old superheroes. She already has a superhero legacy name (Iris is Wally West’s speed-endowed superheroing daughter), she just needs her heroine name — any suggestions?

I’m not certain which character Emmanuelle Béart is best for — a new incarnation of Doctor Who or someone in Gotham are closest, I think — but she definitely comes off heroine chic. And thanks to accidental colour-coordination she has a perfect partner in crime-fighting in Diane Kruger:
Last night the stars sparkled at the annual AmfAR gala to benefit AIDS research. There were only a few misses, most everybody looked right AMAZING and the parade of heroine (and villain! the villains are gonna need their own post) chic makes me grin. But superheroine of the night is obvious:
Dree Hemingway in Valentino Couture — and like Karolina of Krypton at the World Music Awards, this isn’t just heroine chic, she looks like a page out of a superhero book. She also looks absolutely stunning.
Karolina Kurkova is rapidly ascending in my list of super supermodels. Here she is at the World Music Awards:
Karolina of Krypton does it again! And this one, I mean, it could seriously be a superheroine’s outfit. Like. An ACTUAL one in a comic book.
Once upon a time, in fashion-occupied France, Berlinele and her beau, Pacey*, arrived in Nice in their civilian identities — Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson:
