The Inspiration Board: The Catcher In The Rye

One of our favorite things about reading The Catcher in the Rye was falling into a world of old-school aesthetics that J.D. Salinger evoked through his descriptions and characters. Yet, we’re finding that Holden Caulfield’s distinctive tone and style is still showing up in our wardrobes today. Some fashionable suggestions after the jump.

Quotable: Tavi Defends Her Scandalous Hat

“I had no intentions of blocking the views of people behind me but it didn’t block any views-I’m SHORT, so watching the show behind me would be like watching it through a regular-sized adult, but better, because adult heads do not have holes in them. Other than the stinky cheese man, from that one book,…

Dealbreaker: He Hated My Clothes

I am newly single (again). After a fun, but exhausting, up-and-down five months, my boyfriend-ish-person and I broke up this week. I’m sad about it — I really did fall for him and had so much fun with him. But I’m also a little relieved. The drama was wearing thin. Plus, he hated my clothes.

Hair Model Citizen: Penelope Can Do No Wrong

It’s always a bit of a shame when a ravishing brunette highlights her hair. While we get that there’s a lot of pressure to lighten up in Hollywood and all, there’s nothing more striking than a true raven-haired beauty who is fully pulling it off. But real talk: Penelope Cruz is seriously rocking this rather…

It’s every dude’s worst nightmare: that a drop-dead gorgeous Guess jeans modelyou’re talking to online turns out to be … a dude. Such is the sad tale of Marc Puelo from Austin, Texas, who joined looking for love. But 24-year-old Justin Brown was on the millionaire online “dating” web site, too, posing as sexy-as-all-hell…

Want To Vote On Sleaziest Politician Sex Tape Scandal?

John Edwards should have known better than to let his videographer/lovah bring her camera into the bedroom. Andrew Young—the former Edwards’ staffer who originally took the fall for having the affair with Hunter—described finding the tape in Rielle Hunter’s trash in his book and he’ll be appearing on “Nightline” and “20/20″ tonight to describe exactly…

4 Ways The iPad Could Change Fashion

Admit it. Half the fun of getting your iPhone was shopping for cases and fingerless gloves afterward. So the Los Angeles Times makes a good point: What style accompaniments will the iPad produce? Two words: Big. Pockets. (Insert “Is that an iPad in your pants or are you just happy to see me?” jokes here.)…

Australians Want To Ban Small-Breasted Women And Female Ejaculation In Porn

The Australian government apparently has some issues with a woman’s “down under.” The Classification Board for the country’s smut industry is working on banning porn that includes female ejaculation and/or small breasts. The censors are trying to block any websites that include or link to material that include these particular “offenders.” Customs officials are also…

The Ouija Board Gets A Makeover

Hide your daughters from eager spirits, because Hasbro has just released a Ouija Board especially for girls ages eight through 12. What is the difference between the girly Ouija Board and the standard, unisex one? (Because boys are so totally into Ouija.) Well it’s pink for starters and … it comes with 72 questions especially…

Say It Ain’t So: Noah Cyrus Designs Children’s Lingerie Collection?

Celebuzz is reporting that 9-year-old Noah Cyrus is launching a children’s “lingerie” collection called Ooh! La, La! Couture. We wouldn’t hold it past the girl who did a so-wrong rendition of “Smack That” to make such a move, but it seemed slightly unlikely to us. So, here’s what we gather—the designs aren’t so much…

I Need A Man With A Big Tank

In this, um, very creative recruitment video for the Austrian army, prospective soldiers learn about the perks of enlistment: If you thought a hot sports car got you a lot of chicks, wait until you see what happens when you show up in a tank, man. You will have to swat the broad…

Girl On Girl: 6 Secrets Lesbians Don’t Want You To Know

I’ve been thinking about writing this essay for a while, but I’ve been putting it off because I feel like a traitor. Since coming out, I’ve struggled with feeling like an outsider in the gay community. Now, I feel totally secure in identifying as a lesbian and when I’m hanging out with a bunch of…

The Many Beards Of “Mad Men”

The men in Hollywood are obsessed with beards, and among the largely male “Mad Men” cast, this is all the more apparent. The show isn’t taping at the moment, so those who want facial hair can have it until the cameras start rolling again. Michael Gladis, the actor who plays the always-bearded copywriter Paul Kinsey,…

23 Guys I’ll Never Get The Chance To Bang

My whole dating strategy the past few years has been to act like a kid in a penny candy store. I’ve been bagging any man who looks tasty, just getting a couple bites, then moving on to the next flavor. They’ve all been sweet, but, frankly, I’m starting to get a toothache. Now that I’ve…
