Today’s Lady News: California Voters Polled On Female Politicians’ Hair

Pollster firm Public Policy Polling actually asked registered California voters whose hair they prefer more, Senator Barbara Boxer or her challenger, Carly Fiorina. Ugh.

Russell Brand Is Very Proud Of His Beach Body

This is the man who will be marrying Katy Perry, filming the remake of "Arthur" in New York City. I didn't expect him to have such a toned physique, did you? That said, I prefer him less impeccably groomed. I like my trouble-making, potty-mouthed Brits a little dirty. [7/28/10]…

Get Ready For The New “September Issue”

Vogue isn't the only magazine that's ready to let the video cameras into their offices it seems. Apparently W had a bit of "September Issue" jealousy and, in turn, decided to create their own documentary marking the first September issue under brand-new editor-in-chief Stefano Tonchi. Given the circumstances -- monumental issue, major re-design, and new…

Dolce & Gabbana To Outfit Chelsea Soccer Team

Soccer players are so in right now. Though the World Cup definitely deserves the brunt of the credit for that, we have no idea why it took so long for people to obsess over what is essentially an army of incredibly fit, hot men. Now that the world has arrived at the fairly obvious conclusio…

“Hot Toddy” And Other Mixed Drinks That Have Inspired Songs

We've come a long way from "99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall" when it comes to name-dropping alcohol in music. Today's artists get paid big bucks to sing about certain vodkas, or have a name-brand bottle of booze appear in their videos. But then some alcohol-inspired songs seem to be purely organic, created purely…

M.I.A’s Increasingly Erratic Behavior

There was a time when I adored M.I.A. I loved her albums, I loved her vibe, I loved her style, I loved her attitude, and I loved that she was politically aware and called attention to a part of the world most of us barely think about. But lately, it seems like homegirl's behavior ha…

A Shirt That Shows Off Your Spine

Check out this spine-tingling singlet from PLAY by Sarah Reilly. This white, low-dipping tank features a vintage print of an exposed spinal column running down the middle of the racerback. The color?

Weekend Wear: Leighton Meester’s Girls’ Day Out Look

Women dress for other women as much as they dress for men, so when you have a day out with the girls, you've got to look your best. Leighton Meester wore the above look on the set of "Gossip Girl," but it seems a little tame to be from her character Blair Waldorf's wardrobe. Thi…

Quotable: Daisy Fuentes Won’t Make The First Move

"I want to sit back and be impressed. I want the man to be a man and it to be clear that I'm the woman... I don't want to make the first move. I have too many decisions to make in my life, and the last thing I want to have to do is take…

Aretha Franklin Duets With Condoleezza Rice On “I Say A Little Prayer”

In one of their weirdest pairings ever, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Aretha Franklin teamed up for a duet on "I Say A Little Prayer" at a Philly benefit concert for inner-city youth. Unfortunately, the AP didn't clip the whole song, but I'd like to think Condi whipped out the jazz hands at some…

A Piece Of Advice For Kourtney Kardashian
