Love It Or Leave It: Blake Lively’s Bright Red “Good Morning America” Suit?

It was a struggle for me to come to terms with the fact that I think Blake Lively nailed it at Monday night's "Savages" premiere. To be honest, I find her very milquetoast, and most of her public appearances are ineffectual to me, but even so this Michael Kors pantsuit caught my eye. It also…

Mary-Kate And Ashley Won’t Stop Trying To Make Backpacks Luxe

Mary-Kate and Ashley are really into backpacks. The sisterly design duo couldn't possibly find a way to top last year's $39,000 alligator version (at left) (which, it's worth noting, flew off the shelves), so they settled for incorporating this $16,900 fur rucksack into The Row's pre-fall collection. Some might find the patchwork pattern unappealing, but fret…

In light of Nora Ephron's passing yesterday at the age of 71, I felt a desire to pay tribute to the journalist/writer/director in some way. As a female writer it's important to honor the careers of women who you admire, who inspire you in how to craft your own career. Click around the web and…

Be My Boyfriend: Man Who Used Farts As A Weapon

It's not often that I'm impressed by a man's physical abilities. But Guy Who Farted So Loud Your Neighbor Pulled A Gun On You, you, my friend, have some major fart skills, and maybe the key to my heart. One, I love a man who's confident enough in his bodily functions to let one ri…

Channing Tatum’s Dance Moves On “Today” Just Woke Me Up

So, i flew from NYC to San Jose, CA last night (for the gymnastics Olympics trials, woot!), arriving at my hotel after midnight PST. That means I didn't get to bed until after 3 a.m. EST. I tossed and turned and then woke up to do my usual East Coast radio gig at, grr, 5:30…

Girl Talk: Pinterest Ruined My Wedding Planning

I heard about Pinterest at a wedding reception last year and within 24 hours, I was hooked. I had to pin everything: I grabbed every vegan recipe, organizing tip, cute outfit, inspirational quote, and makeup tutorial I could get my freshly ombre-manicured fingers on. Then, a few months later, I got engaged and suddenly it…

Blow Other Necklaces Out Of The Water

I always wanted a really bitchin' lifeguard whistle just for personal use. Hey, you! Get out my seat! Lady, put down the last cupcake! Who cares if I lose friends and alienate people with all the power and authority I've conferred? C. Wonder's got a cute 14K-gold plated whistle that will be just the thing…

Watch Natalie Morales Do A Face Plant In Front Of Gymnastics Coach Bela Karolyi

So, Amelia isn't in the office today, because she's at the Olympic gymnastics trials! How cool is that? She'll be bringing us coverage from the trials in San Jose, CA, as the men's and women's Olympic teams are decided (go Alicia!). And as we've probably mentioned before, I'll be covering the Olympics from London later…

Well Played: Elizabeth Banks And The Amazing Technicolor Dream Dress

Elizabeth Banks brought a little Effie Trinket flamboyancy to her non-"Hunger Games" life yesterday, donning this amazing zig-zag print dress with colorblocked platform pumps. It's a lot of look, but thanks to her super-simple makeup, chic haircut, and lack of accessories, it totally works. Also can we talk about this woman's skin for a second?

5 Awkward Moments I’ve Had With My Cell Phone Provider

This weekend, I went to the T-Mobile store to upgrade my smart phone to a smarter phone (nope, still don't have an iPhone, whatever, shut up). I hadn't gotten a new phone for awhile, so when the T-Mobile guy came over to help me, I asked if I was eligible for an upgrade. He stared…

Be The Pizza Ninja You’ve Always Wanted To Be

Artist Steph Mantis has done some pioneering work with pizza: specifically, encasing real pizza slices in resin to preserve it, in her words, "FOREVERRRRR." These "pizza ninja stars," which turn four harmless pieces of pepperoni pizza into a deadly weapon, look terrifyingly delicious (or is it deliciously terrifying?). [Neatorama]…

Fashion Models Without Makeup Make Life A Little Less Worth Living

And just when I thought I looked pretty good today, I fell privy to a gallery of today's top models (like Constance Jablonski, shown), minus the layers of makeup and endless accoutrements necessary to make them runway-ready.
