Chelsea Getting Married!

Chelsea Clinton and Marc Mezvinsky were married in Rhinebeck, NY yesterday in front of 400 guests including Ted Danson, Mary Steenburgen and Madeline Albright. The bride wore Vera Wang, the groom wore Burberry, and the interfaith ceremony was officiated by a reverend and a rabbi. Of the nuptials, former President Bill Clinton and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said:

“Today, we watched with great pride and overwhelming emotion as Chelsea and Marc wed in a beautiful ceremony at Astor Courts, surrounded by family and their close friends. We could not have asked for a more perfect day to celebrate the beginning of their life together, and we are so happy to welcome Marc into our family. On behalf of the newlyweds, we want to give special thanks to the people of Rhinebeck for welcoming us and to everyone for their well-wishes on this special day.”

Win This! TRIA Laser Hair Removal System

For as long as I’ve noticed that I have body hair — since 7th grade? — I’ve been a shaver. I mean, I wax my upper lip (deal with it dudes, every girl has a ‘stache) and my eyebrows, but the rest of me I shave. And it is annoying. Recently I have been considering my other hair removal options as I have no plans in getting in touch with my inner hippie and letting it all grow out. There’s waxing, sure, but who wants to let their leg hair grow out to a length where it could reasonably be yanked out? It’s summer after all. There’s also laser hair removal, which I’ve always considered to be the Bill Gates of hair removal options because it’s so expensive and requires a ton of in-office visits. Until now. TRIA’s Hair Removal System is the first and only FDA-cleared at-home laser that gives permanent results, eliminating the need for shaving or waxing. Now, I’m going to be testing out this bad boy for a future Beauty Test Drive, but so far, it’s easy to use. Also worth noting: TRIA is not safe for use by people with medium/dark skin tones, so keep that in mind. TRIA’s Hair Removal System isn’t cheap, but compared to how much you’d fork over for costly in-office treatments, if you’re desperate to be hair and shaving-cut free, it’s a steal.

WIN THIS! We’re giving away TRIA’s Hair Removal System to ONE lucky person, but you have to work if you want it. In the comments, tell us your most disastrous hair removal story by 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, August 5, 2010. We’ll pick our favorite response and announce the winner Friday, August 6. You must live in the U.S. or Canada to win. Good luck!

Trailer Park: “Dinner For Schmucks,” “Charlie St. Cloud,” “The Extra Man,” “The Dry Land”

It’s a very rare thing that I want to see all the movies that are coming out, especially since there are some seriously craptastic things being produced these days. And as this summer fades in to autumn’s chill, you’re running out of time to take advantage of the long days and sweat-soaked nights. Spend an afternoon in the sun and then soak up all the AC your pores can hold in the darkness of a movie theater. This week, you can choose from “Dinner for Schmucks,” “Charlie St. Cloud,” “The Extra Man,” “The Dry Land” and “Spoken Word.” Keep reading »

An Open Letter To Lady Gaga About Luc Carl

Dear Lady Gaga,

I am writing you as a concerned Little Monster who has survived the aftermath of my many dating mistakes in my late teens and 20s. I recently saw the disturbing pics of you and your on-again-off-again BF, Luc Carl, sucking face in a swimming pool. I hate to be the one to break the news to you, but I know that this fellow is bad news. How do I know? Well, for starters, I had an on-again-off-again long-haired boyfriend musician-type BF that I was obsessed with in my 20s, too. Many of us have had “that guy” in our lives, unfortunately.

The world welcomed Kanye West (@kanyewest) to Twitter this week and he’s already let us into his magical world.

[People]

I suspect we can look forward to many more amazing Kanye-isms in the future, but for now, we’ve rounded up a few other amazing celebrity Freudian slips!

Quotable: Jon Hamm Isn’t The Marrying Kind

“I don’t have the marriage chip, and neither of us have the greatest examples of marriages in our families. But Jen is the love of my life, and we’ve already been together four times longer than my parents were married.”

Jon Hamm on his 10-year relationship with actress Jennifer Westfeldt and how neither of them are particularly interested in getting married. As for how they deal with the attention he gets for being a “sex symbol,” Hamm says:

“That kind of stuff is only present if you give it attention. If it’s not reflected back, it goes away. It’s not like I’m Justin Bieber or anything.”

Oh Jon, give yourself some credit — you are so much better than Bieber. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
