Santa Claus Ditches the Red Suit, Upgrades to Designer Outfits

Tradition is grand and all, but let's be honest, Santa and his signature red suit with white trim were in dire need of freshening up. Thanks to the self-described "creative business" Joint London (via Racked), the jolly big guy got just that. In the illustrations at Designer X Santa, Saint Nick switched up his style by donning some outfits by some of 2014's buzziest designers, including Hood by Air, Marni, Alexander Wang, Raf Simons, and Rick Owens.

Watch: Oprah Winfrey Slapping Jimmy Fallon Across the Face

Sure, she's a world-renowned chai-tea expert and motivational speaker now, but back in the day, Ms. Winfrey was merely an Academy Award–nominated actress. So it should come as no surprise that her appearance on The Tonight Show last night took a rather, um, dramatic turn. Check out these clips from the faux eighties soap opera Midnight Meadows, in which Fallon and Winfrey starred as sparring lovers with outrageously auto-tuned voices, and you'll see what we mean. see more

A Gift a Day: A Runway-Inspired Blanket That'd Look Great in Your Home

Until Billy Reid makes our dreams come true and launches a full-scale home collection (like Ralph Lauren's or Calvin Klein's), we'll have to be satisfied with items like today's gift: a virgin-wool blanket that made its debut on the designer's fall 2014 runway. The Heirloom Ribbon Blanket ($395) shares its pattern with the first look in that collection, a diagonally striped double-breasted topcoat. But the mantle itself also appeared later on in the show, worn almost like a shroud around the arms of a model who was already wearing a fur-lined coat. But honestly, we see this blanket draped over see more

A Workout Class for the Aggressively Competitive

I'm a little competitive. Actually, that's a lie. I'm a lot competitive. My nickname here in the Details office is Tracy Flick (as in, Reese Witherspoon's annoyingly overachieving candidate for student-body president in Election). My brother and I even have a Monica-and-Ross-from-Friends-"Mom said we're not allowed to play football"-style rule still in effect from childhood. You get the picture. The Pursuit by Equinox was invented for people like me. As participants in the fitness club's new indoor-cycling class pedal along to the thundering music, a software system pulls real-time data on wattage and RPMs (to determine distance covered) from each see more

Celebrity Photographer Mario Testino on Instagram, Shooting Royals, and His New Whisky-Inspired Project

There's a reason why Mario Testino's new book costs $3,500. It's not just because he's among the most powerful and celebrated photographers in the world and he can charge whatever he likes. Nor is this merely a limited-edition kind of thing, though there are only 1,000 (collectible) copies available. The Macallan Masters of Photography Book is actually kind of a hybrid coffee-table-book-cum-liquor-cabinet in a black lacquer box. In addition to the photos captured at a Beijing photo shoot and one signed color print, it's filled with precious whisky—samples from six of the best casks at Macallan. We spoke to the see more

Dallas Is Spending More on Men's Underwear Than the Rest of Us

Much in the same way that it used data to show the weird kinds of food Americans eat at Thanksgiving, The New York Times has analyzed numbers from the Federal Government to determine how people in major metropolitan areas spend their money. And congratulations, Los Angeles: you're spending 242 percent more on clothing storage (yes, clothing storage, not actual clothes) than the rest of our nation. see more

After 15 Years, D'Angelo Releases the Long-Awaited Album Black Messiah

With today's sudden release of Black Messiah, D'Angelo can finally complete a journey he started nearly 15 years ago, when he brought his Grammy-winning, chart-topping R&B-soul masterpiece Voodoo to the world. The "Untitled (How Does It Feel)" video, showing off the singer's chiseled body, helped make him into a star before virtually disappearing for the better part of a decade. Within a couple of years, he went from a shy artist to a sex symbol to an alcoholic, drug-addicted recluse, gaining a lot of weight and being arrested for cocaine possession and soliciting sex from an undercover police officer. As see more

A Gift a Day: A Rugged USA-Made Timepiece

There's something about a man checking the time on his wristwatch that's just more sophisticated than him pulling out his phone every time he needs a status update. This watch, made in collaboration with Haspel and Brooklyn Watch Co. for the former's 105th anniversary, is both urbane and masculine, thanks to the clean face design and textured-leather straps. The watch's features—which include 17 jewel mechanical movement, a 45-millimeter stainless-steel case, 40 hours of reserve power, and an engraved backing—prove that its sleek facade hides some powerful technology within. see more

Baseball Legend Mike Piazza on the 5 Grooming Products He Can't Live Without

Besides a larger-than-life personality both on and off the field, there's another thing former Mets catcher Mike Piazza caused a stir with, and that's grooming. Yes, grooming. In fact, sometimes it seemed his experimentation with facial-hair styles was as closely monitored and scrutinized as his game. see more
