Rather than constantly running to the bathroom for touch-ups and carrying a…

The Brief Is Back

According to the New York Times (and they’ve been on a real roll this week), when it comes to the male undies category, it’s all about the brief. When did the reign of the boxer come to an end exactly? It’s impossible to be certain, but it could have something to do with the recession:…

2009: The Year Of The Real Girls

If you came of age in the early 2000s, like I did, pop culture was strange—strangely plastic, that is. Britney Spears had the hottest body on earth, but she married a skeezebag and shaved her head. Paris Hilton had a sex tape, then a TV show and then everyone wanted to be her best friend.

Lady Gaga And Perez Hilton Go Back To The ’80s

Even though, technically, these kids missed most of the decade. Thoughts anyone? We don’t know, it’s a little matchy matchy. But extra style points for coordinating Gaga’s wig and Perez’s banana boxers. We never would’ve thought of that pairing. [Miami, 12/30/09]…

What Are You Wearing For New Year’s Eve?

After way more time than I care to admit, I finally found a dress to wear tonight at the little New Year’s Eve get-together I’m hosting. In honor of tonight’s blue moon, I decided on this blue dress from French Connection. OK, full disclosure: I didn’t actually make the blue moon connection until after I…

Cassette Tape Tie

OK, so it’s a little pricey for a tie, but pretty cool once you take a closer look. No, ladies and gentlemen, that tie is not made of mere fabric; it’s actually a whole lot of recycled cassette tape.This strikes us as the perfect gift for that music lover who “has everything” because, let’s face…

Dear Wendy: “My Boyfriend’s Great, But I Don’t Think I Deserve Him.”

I’ve been seeing a guy since October. Although we haven’t put a label on our relationship, things have evolved and are progressively becoming more serious. He went home for Christmas, so I didn’t see him for about a week, but we did text during that time. When he returned on Sunday, he invited me over…

What We Really Want To Know About Na’vi Sex

If the sex scene in “Avatar” disappointed you, you’re not alone. James Cameron spent a quarter of a billion dollars on special effects, but there wasn’t even a hint of damn Na’vi peen. (Apparently, they screw by sticking their tails together?) Zoe Saldana, the actress who played Neytiri, has a little explanation:
