The Fragrance Of Forgiveness

Contradictory combinations often end up making the most sense. My nose was initially confused by OLO's Violet/Leather perfume oil. Inspired by the Mark Twain quote, “Forgiveness is the fragrance that the violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it,” as the company describes the scent, "It smells like violet, it smells like leather." Indeed,…

Danish Mag Publishes Bottomless Kate Middleton Nude Photos

Danish magazine Se Og Hor has published bottomless photos of Kate Middleton, toweling off and wearing a bikini top on a balcony/porch beside Prince William. I'm assuming these pics were taken at the same time as the topless photos, when she and William were vacationing in the South of France — meaning they assumed…

Is This A Pic Of Young Brooke Shields Smoking Pot?

Whoa, is this Brooke Shields smoking pot? A Twitter user named Dave Hill tweeted the pic yesterday, although the actress's rep denies this is a pic of her getting stoned.

Beauty Test Drive: Celine Dion’s Perfume Collection

Last Tuesday at around 11AM I heard a knock on the door. I wasn't expecting a package and the last time I opened the door for a random visitor it was two religious guys wearing shiny white pants who told me they had definitive proof that God was a fish, so I ignored it and…

12 Sex Moves Guys Stole From Porn (NSFW)

Cindy Gallup's Make Love Not Porn movement has inspired us. For those of you who have never heard of her, Cindy Gallup is, for lack of a better term, a cougar. When, in her 40s, she began dating (and having sex with) much younger men, she discovered that their bedroom playbook was a little too…

All The “ANTM” Models Who’ve Appeared “Vogue Knitting” Magazine

Well, we know what Jael Strauss has been up to since appearing on Cycle 8 of "America's Next Top Model" because we saw her recent meth intervention on the "Dr. Phil" show. Very sad. Not quite as sad but still sad: posing for a photo spread in Vogue Knitting Magazine. What!? A high-end knitting magazine…

Hyundai Netherlands’ “Upskirt” Commercial Is Very Lazy/European

Oh, Europeans. Here's a new commercial from Hyundai Netherlands for their Sante Fe vehicle. The ad is creepily called "Upskirt" and definitely pushes the boundaries of what you can do to sell cars here in the United States. The premise is about as unoriginal as any other car commercial: sexy ladies swooning over a new…

Kim Kardashian Goes Green At Midori Event

Earlier this week, Kim Kardashian hosted Midori's Makeover Parlour event at Fred Segal in LA and showed up in this gorgeous emerald green velvet body-con dress by Gucci (clearly a nod to the drink's hue).

Definitive Proof That Cats Are Superior To Dogs

I love this video, which helpfully outlines just why and how cats rule and dogs drool. The only small suggestion I have is that they hire German director Werner Herzog to narrate the next one. This video is instructive, and very, very accurate (though Amelia and Lucca might say otherwise). [Buzzfeed]…

I love me some Rosario Dawson--she's smart, talented, beautiful, and a proud feminist. Dream girl status. This fabulous outfit she wore out and about in New York earlier this week is pretty perfect too: the head-to-toe black is undeniably cool, but sweet details like polka dots and a mini bag keep it from being too…

Maybe I’m Old, But The New York Times Makes College Bars Sound Super Douche-y

The New York Times' Style Section inhabits a parallel universe in which wearing dresses during the hot summer months spawns a "trend piece." For what's supposed to be the most stylish, fashionable section of the newspaper, they're delightfully behind the times on, oh, everything. So it is with an ugh in my chest that…

Who Wore It Better: Gwen Stefani Or This Stock Photo Mechanic?

Gwen Stefani showed up in London today wearing this jumpsuit, and while I think she looks totally fierce, it's such a utilitarian garment that I couldn't help but do a side-by-side comparison with this beaming stock photo model who is pretending to be a mechanic. So, whose look do you prefer?
