Is Being A Female Bank Robber A Feminist Act?

In the past week, six banks in New England were robbed. A woman in a hoodie would stroll up to a teller and either pass them a note or tell them that she had a bomb. Sometimes she'd ask for a large amount of money, sometimes just $1000. In none of the robberies did she…

Crave: BB Dakota Marsh Jacket

Fall fashion gets a little ho-hum—another cardigan, anyone?—which is why we're ordering this short-sleeved military jacket by BB Dakota, stat. Unlike other military jackets, it's not made of long or bulky fabric which covers up your body. Nor does it scream "nautical trend!" which was so last season anyway. We dig any piece in our…

Ms. Olympia Isn’t Worth As Much As Mr. Olympia

I was in Las Vegas for Joe Weider's Olympia Weekend 2009, and male and female bodybuilders competed for the titles of Mr. and Ms. Olympia. While I can't understand why any woman would want to tone her body to such an extreme level, I'll be the first to admit that these women's bodies looked wicked…

Watch Jude Law Play A Crossdressing Model For Free

In theory, the combination of Jude Law, leather, and Russian accents could actually turn you on. But what's more likely is that it will make you laugh. We told you about "Rage"--a film directed by Sally Potter about a Russian supermodel named Minx (played in drag by Mr. Law) and other kooky characters from the…

Style 911: So I’m Broke …

"I just graduated college and unfortunately haven't been able to find a job yet. Like any red blooded American female, I look forward to doing some shopping in the fall, but this year it's kind of bummer since I have such low cash flow. Is there anything affordable I can buy to update my wardrobe…

Could A “Friends” Movie Be On The Way?

For years, I wanted to be friends with "Friends." But the TV show was canceled in 2004, as the 30-something cast slid more toward the "something" end of the spectrum. NBC seemed to think audiences weren’t interested in watching Monica, Rachel, Phoebe and their significant others settle into family lives. But Matthew Perry is such…

Poor Clive Owen’s Face Surrounded By Stupid Headlines On Details Cover

Poor me. It's hard to focus on wanting to rip Clive Owen's clothes off on the cover of Details magazine when there are such stupid headlines on either side of his face. "Why It's Okay To Stare At Fat People"! "Killer Orgasm: Dying In Pursuit Of Pleasure" (about erotic asphyxiation)! "63 Signs That You're A…

How To Date A Tall Chick

I'm tall. I mean, I'm really tall. And I don't mean 5'10" tall. I'm 6'1". That's ridiculously tall. Kermit the Frog once said: "It's not easy being green." Well, it's not easy being a tall woman, either. Among the more common pickup lines we tall ladies hear: "Do you play basketball?" (No.) "What's the weather…

Beauty Test Drive: Sephora Lip Stain

We are big lovers of red lipstick. But sometimes the full-on red lip is too much of a commitment. Our favorite low-maintenance alternative is a red lip stain that'll leave you looking like you just ate cherry pie but managed to remain fabulous-looking. Unfortunately, most stains don't last nearly as long as they claim and…

Agent Provocateur Dresses Comic Book Characters To Sell Lingerie

The women in comic books have a tendency to be scantily clad, buxom babes (i.e., Barbarella). Lingerie brand Agent Provocateur is capitalizing on this rule of thumb by creating its own graphic novel with characters that wear the label's skimpy bedroom clothes while saving the world from extinction. (According to the plot line, the ladie…

Because I’ve been single for so long, my married friends often like to give me unsolicited advice. “I know what your problem is!” Elinor had a sudden revelation as her newborn baby suckled at her breast. Now that she is a wife to a man and a mother to a boy, her new favorite thing…

Sex & Celluloid: The Top 5 Chick Flicks With Bite

Megan Fox's "Jennifer's Body" came out last weekend, bringing writer Diablo Cody back into the spotlight we left her in, covered in rotten tomatoes from irate "Juno" haters. Sure, there is "The United States of Tara," but Toni Collette won that Emmy for a reason: She's working with so little. But so far, there's bee…
