Woman Goes Through Life Dressed Like 19th Century Author Charlotte Bronte

UPDATE: It has come to our attention from Lyn-Marie Cunliffe that this story, as it was reported on the Daily Mail UK and the UK Telegraph, is not true.  We all know that fans can be, well, fanatical. But this 49-year-old British mother has taken her love of Victorian literature just a touch too far: Lyn-Marie…

Style Stealer: Daisy Lowe’s Laid-Back Look

Daisy Lowe is the model daughter of Bush frontman Gavin Rossdale. Remember him? She's also in constant circulation on the British tabloids for her public exploits and relationships. Supposedly, this photo was taken just days (hours?) after she and "Dr. Who" star Matt Smith broke off their 18-month relationship. That explains the overall dark palette…

From The Department Of You Have Got To Be Kidding Me

So there's a new site for ladies! Ladies who like business! And it's got a stupid, stupid, stupid name. The site Mogulite has rebranded itself as TheJaneDough.com. But that's not all! Its tagline is: "All the business news we knead." Get it? Because you need news like you knead bread. Because you're a woman! And…

Dubious Study Finds That Women React Aggressively Toward “Sexy” Peers

Ugh. The very last thing we (i.e. women) need is a "study" claiming to observe women's snarky reactions to another woman dressed sexily. The lead author of the study begins with a quote that is concerning in and of itself: "I was convinced, having lived a life as a woman, that we're not as pleasant…

8 Tips To Avoid Contacting Your Ex This Holiday Season

The holiday season can be a tricky time to be single, even if you've been that way for a while, even if you're totally comfortable with it the other 11 months of the year. Some weird single holiday haze descends and makes the most well-adjusted among us feel like a lousy lumps of unwanted coal.

Oh, Baby, Beyonce!

There's nary a baby bump to be found in Beyonce's epic "Countdown" video, but as we can see in this behind-the-scenes video, B was six months pregnant at the time of filming. I love the way she says, "Oh, baby!" over and over. So adorable. Is it weird that I'm so excited she and Jay-Z…

Oops! Men Only Think About Sex 19 Times A Day, Not 8,000

Just kidding! There was a slight miscalculation. Men don't actually think about sex every seven seconds. I always thought that 8,000 sexual thoughts a day seemed like an oppressive estimate.  New research says that men are not the wild, hyper-sexualized beasts science made them out to be. Men's sexual notions happen more like once every…

The Good, The Bad & The WTF At The 2011 British Fashion Awards

Last night, the British celebrated their own particular brand of style with the British Fashion Awards, honoring the best in designing and fashion talent from around England.

Katherine Heigl Hates Balls

Professionally speaking, I've always been a bit on the fence about Katherine Heigl. As a rom-com fan, I am literally incapable of not watching "27 Dresses" when it comes on TV. I liked "Knocked Up," though I certainly took issue with its abortion avoidance. And "Life As We Know It"? That sappy movie about two…

Condom Company Scares Guys Into Wrapping It Up Via Facebook

Of all the good reasons to wrap it up, not bringing a bundle of joy into the world who you are ill-prepared to care for is a big one. A Brazilian ad agency took this idea to the extreme by Facebook friending young men with a profile of their fake "baby" with their name followed…

Dealbreaker: The Guy With Remedial Grooming Skills

My fairly new boyfriend Todd was a nice-enough looking guy with some questionable grooming habits. I tried to tell myself that these minor, easily fixable flaws shouldn’t influence how I felt about him. But instead of gazing into Todd’s eyes, I found myself staring at his nose hair, fixated. Brownish-grey tufts looking like steel wool…

Kirsten Dunst Once Cut Her Hair Short For A Dude

"The last time I cut my hair short, my boyfriend at the time was like, 'You look so much better with short hair.' So I cut it off. I know, I know, so stupid! My girlfriend thinks he just didn’t want any guys to look at me. ... I attract a difference kind of boy

H&M Announces Marni As Its Newest Collaborator

We've always wanted to like Marni -- the high-end, highly structured Italian designer line. But truthfully, it's hard to imagine how to wear many of designer Consuelo Castiglioni's boxy, somewhat masculine creations. Still, we're curious to see how Castiglioni's collaboration with H&M might turn out, especially because she claims, rather unconvincingly, that "everything has the…

Girl Talk: Do All Couples Argue?

Last month, my husband Jason and I had our fiercest argument ever. In our six-year history, I have accepted that occasional spats are part and parcel of every couple’s attempt to weave two independent lives into one harmonious fabric of existence. Even marital vows oblige us to respect the glaring reality of love’s peaks and…

For The Record: Britney Spears Did Apologize For The Umbrella Attack

Ah, a stroll down memory lane. Remember when Britney Spears was having an "episode" and she attacked some paparazzo with an umbrella? Well, apparently she wrote an apology letter claiming she was "preparing a character for a possible movie role." I suppose that's code for "struggling with mental illness"? I wonder if that was her…
