Anna Wintour Won’t Put Rihanna On A Vogue Cover After Leaked Nudie Photos

It’s no secret that Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour is the Darth Vader of fashion. (Remember that “60 Minutes” segment where she fessed up to telling Oprah to drop twenty pounds for her 1998 Vogue cover and then called chubby Minnesotans “little houses.”) But Anna has reached a whole new level of meaniness. According to Rihanna’…

Doin’ It With Dr. V: Questioning The Queef

Hi, I’m Dr. V. I’m not a real doctor, I just play one on the Internet. What I am is a lady, a lady who is a fool for love! And I love nothing more than sex. My deepest desires have happily lead me on many adventures in the sack, but they have also, sadly,

Liquid Blush That Won’t Fade As It Heats Up

Enough heat and sweat will turn even the most thoughtfully-applied makeup into a hot mess. Before you know it, your blush is caking or sinking into your skin and you’ve got a mean case of skanky makeup and it’s only mid-day. Luckily, cream and liquid blush will resist the urge to slide all over your…

Kelly Rowland Is No Heidi Klum

We are all going through major “Project Runway” withdrawal now that the show has been moved to Lifetime. Every episode of the thrown-together Bravo knock-off “The Fashion Show” is equivalent to a so-so episode of “Runway,” but the real nostalgia comes from the longing for “Runway”‘s host Heidi Klum. Here are the top four reaso…

Five Ways Men’s Lives Would Be Better If Women Were In Charge

We live in a patriarchal society, where men lead and determine much of our what happens in our lives. But this isn’t the way it is in certain parts of the world.

Cute Alert: Couple Celebrates Their 81st Anniversary

Every time I get all skeptical about this whole l-o-v-e thing, something happens to pull me back. Earlier this week, Frank and Anita Milford Devon, Britain’s oldest married couple, celebrated their 81st anniversary. The two met at a YMCA dance in 1926 and got hitched two years later.

Crave: Apica Notebooks (Win One!)

Our life’s to-do list — things we need to buy at the drugstore, ingredients for the butternut squash soup recipe we’ve been dying to make, reminders to make doctor and dentist appointments — is contained on scraps of paper and the back of receipts scattered throughout our apartment and various handbags. These notes are cluttering…

Hug It Out! The Case For Showing More Affection

We’ve all read about that so-called dastardly “hugging epidemic” that is sweeping the nation’s youth like The Jitterbug (or oral sex parties) and spurring quick-thinking middle and high schools to ban hugs.

But though we chuckle at the idea that in 2009, school administrators are whipping out the “Keep six inches between you…

Putting A Lid On It: Tape Gives Women Eyes Creases

Most of us have some body hangup, whether we hate our hair (“Too curly!” “Too straight!”) or bodies (“My boobs are too small!” “My boobs are too big!”). For many Asian women, it’s the lack of an eye crease — some Asians don’t have defined indentations above their eye, which is called a “double eyelid.”…
