New York Fashion Week May Change In A Major Way

CFDA President and fashion world matriarch Diane von Furstenberg think that the fashion industry is “in crisis.” From showing clothes months before the season they’re in stores to overly commercialized shows, and a growing sense of boredom coupled with a shrinking number of designers showing in the tents at Bryant Park, something has got to…

Quote Of The Day: Diablo Cody On Walking The Red Carpet

“Any time I do a red carpet, I feel vaguely confrontational. I feel like, ‘All right, now somebody’s going to come on the red carpet who doesn’t have a stylist, who did her own hair and makeup, who’s wearing a $25 dress from H&M. I have cellulite. I have big hips and big thighs. And…

Heidi Klum Has A Case Of “Pregnancy Brain”

Heidi Klum rocked leopard print yesterday on “Late Night,” where she talked about how she’s got “pregnancy brain” (her third baby with husband Seal is due in October) and kinda forgets what’s going on sometimes. Hopefully, she’ll soon forget the part of the show when Conan O’Brien tried to sing a German lullaby…

George Clooney took his new arm candy — Italian model/actress Elisabetta Canalis — for a spin on his hog. Like a motorcycle ride, when it comes to George Clooney, you gotta hold on tight, honey. [7/29/09]…

Ed Hardy: When Is Enough, Enough?

Please forgive us if this is your umpteenth time reading about the Ed Hardy “empire,” but a collection this vast and fugly begs for all the attention it can get. Those of us who think Ed Hardy Vintage Tattoo Wear is simply relegated to tees and trucker hats are in for a rude awakening. Since…

Further proof that the book publishing industry will give everyone a book deal but people who actually deserve it … Jillian Harris, the most recent “Bachelorette,” will be writing a dating book based on hot dog toppings. You see, Jillian has this little theory that you can tell a lot about a guy based o…

Girls Spouting Boobs A Year Earlier Than They Did A Decade Ago

According to a new study, today’s girls are reaching for bras about a year earlier than they did 15 years ago. Yep, for some reason, it looks like girls are going through puberty much earlier than they did generations ago. Young women who blossom early are more likely to have problems with breast cancer, depression,…

“Mad Men” Producers Tells January Jones To Gain Weight

Oh, to be in the cast of “Mad Men,” hanging around Don Draper, sporting gorgeous, well-made clothing, and gracing the only program on television where the actresses are encouraged to be voluptuous. January Jones, who plays Betty Draper on the show, had to be asked by the producers to gain weight. “I got told a…

Quick Pic: Rachael Taylor Likes Simple, White Underwear

Actress Rachael Taylor exposed a little too much — her simple, white undies — while seated at an iTunes “Meet the Filmmaker” event. She probably didn’t realize her chic leather dress was made for profiling, not sitting. [Sydney, 7/29/09]…

Today In Terribleness: The Worst Edition, Ever.

Some really awful things have happened this week and, unfortunately, a huge percentage of them happened to women. We know you don’t exactly enjoy reading about this kind of stuff but, hey, it’s important. So here it goes.

Tanning Beds Are Shockingly Bad For You

I knew tanning beds weren’t a great idea, but I didn’t realize they were this bad! People who start fake-baking before age 30 have a 75 percent higher chance of getting cancer and are eight times more likely to get melanoma. [Guh-reat. — Editor] But, wait: It gets worse. Asbestos, arsenic, radium, and cigarettes are…

Why I Love Horror Movies

Jennifer’s Body,” a horror flick starring Megan Fox and written by Diablo Cody, is out September 19, which means it’s time for another article postulating: “Why Do Women Like Horror Movies?”

Nice try, Entertainment Weekly, but, no, us girls don’t like horror flicks for the “strong female leads,” whomever those might be. Or…

Super-Long Nails—Are They Back?

Is Rihanna going to single-handedly bring back fake, acrylic, prom-style nails? Take a look at her fingers, specifically her freakishly-long nails. Not only do they have some major length, but check out the shape. Most people rock the square with rounded edges look. Not RiRi. Her nails are almost filed into a point. Very Elvira.

Dude Websites Observe A Megan Fox Blackout Day, But We’d Like To Issue Some Others

Next week, get ready for a day off. Well, not actually a day-off day off, but a day off from incessant coverage of Megan Fox. On August 4th, manly websites across the blogosphere will stop giving the “Transformers” starlet so much attention. Doug Sheckler from 205th.com explains, “She needs to do more to earn our…

Crave: theBalm Hot Mama Shadow/Blush

We love theBalm makeup collection’s Hot Mama — it’s the perfect compact for emergency beauty touch-up sessions when you’re out and about. The best part? It’s a blush, eyeshadow, and highlighter all in one, leaving lots more room for accidental purchases in your bag. The idea behind Hot Mama is that you can look good…

Rag & Bone Eliminates Need For “Fat Jeans” And “Skinny Jeans”

I own 14 pairs of jeans and can pretty much sort those pairs into two piles: the fat jeans and the skinny ones. Of course, I never actually get rid of the latter because there’s always the eternal hope that I will one day fit back into them. Rag & Bone has now come out…

Swine Flue Made Me Do It!

Swine Flu never really lived up to its potential as a grade-A apocalyptic disaster. We send all those infected our best wishes and hope they have a speedy recovery, but we have a word or two for those of you who have contracted Swine Flu Madness. This condition differs from the flu in that it…
