A Comprehensive Guide To Celebrity Look-alikes

Prepare to be flabbergasted! Shocked! You’ll likely exclaim “Say what?! They aren’t one and the same?!” more than once. Until the making of this slideshow, I sincerely thought Bryce Dallas Howard and Jessica Chastain were the same person.

There’s a country-wide strike going on in Spain right now, against the government’s austerity cuts. And one surprising group that’s participating: the country’s prostitutes, who say they won’t have sex with the country’s bankers until they “fulfill their responsibility to society” and begin offering better loans to struggling Spaniards.

Snoop Dogg’s little girl, Cori B. is following in her father’s footsteps. This is her third single, “Daddy’s Girl”, from her forthcoming album Choc’s World. How did I miss her first two singles?

First Time For Everything: Dancing At Coyote Ugly

Here’s a thing I can promise: If you invite me to your wedding, your other guests will comment on the quality of my dancing. It’s inevitable. I’ve never been to a wedding where the thank you note for whatever I picked off the registry didn’t do exactly that. Anything from, “My Uncle Morty loved your…

Deer And Cat Have A Date

We’re often shocked whenever we encounter nature in unlikely places, so you can imagine how this cat must feel, suddenly surrounded by a gaggle of deer. It seems the deer, too, are rather amazed to come across this tiny little white furball. Interspecies love affair? Well, not quite. [Tastefully Offensive]…

14 Pairs Of Panties A Lady Shouldn’t Be Caught Dead In

Ladies, if you want to wear granny panties, boy shorts, period undies, sexy thongs, go for it. A woman’s panties are her business, and if we’re being honest, guys don’t notice them anyway. The most you’ll get is a “Hey those are cute, can I take them off now?” And that’s on a good night,…

Morning Quickies: Maggie Gyllenhaal Expecting Another Girl, Won’t Sell Baby Photos

Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Saarsgard are one of my favorite celeb couples, in part because they won’t reveal the due date of the baby girl Maggie is carrying and they refuse to sell any baby photos. Take notes, Jessica Simpson. In pen. [USA Today]

Criminal Beard-Cutting Sprees Rock Ohio’s Amish Community

The Amish are a generally quiet folk not known for crimes and misdemeanors. But one Amish community in Ohio is in turmoil after six women and 10 men have gone on a beard-cutting spree. Yes, beard-cutting. Amish men sport famously long beards in accordance with the Bible, which they say decrees that a man must…

A Basic Guide To Eyebrow Grooming

It’s easy to underestimate the importance of eyebrows to the overall structure of your face. We all have them and they’re just sort of there, being eyebrows, naturally growing into whatever state they please.

Love It Or Hate It: Ciara’s Two-Tone Hair

Ciara showed up at a Valentino store opening earlier this week rocking some seriously striking two-tone hair. Her locks go from deep, dark brown at the roots to white hot blonde at eye level down to the ends. It’s a pretty extreme version of the ombre hair trend–so, what do you think? Is it edgy…

Do Not Want: Italian Picnic Pants

File this firmly under Things I Never Want To See In Real Life. Italian brand Acquacalda has gone ahead and created these picnic pants, and they’re exactly as surreal as you would think.

Style Stealer: Kirsten Dunst’s Laidback On-Set Look

Kirsten Dunst has, for the most part, consistently fantastic style. Her casual looks have always been impressive, in my opinion even more so than her red carpet appearances. She also seems really down-to-earth, which is probably part of the reason why she looks so enviably cool at her most dressed-down moments. Her new film, The
