This morning, we met Mugly the Chinese Crested, the pooch who won the World’s Ugliest Dog contest for the second time in his ugly life. And somehow, some way, Kathie Lee Gifford managed to make a conversation about Mugly into a conversation about Kathie Lee, specifically how one day she expects “things” to grow out of her face. Yum.
The good news is that YouTube has pulled an account belonging to “John Zippy,” a man who was surreptiously filming women’s legs on the subway through a camera placed inside a Starbucks cup and posting the videos online.
The bad news is the YouTube channel “New York Subway Girls” had 35 videos posted on it before it was yanked, featuring 102 women whose body parts were being filmed without their consent. Gross.

Important fashion news! A “study” by a Parisian fashion company found that British women wear “longer skirts and less revealing tops” than women elsewhere in Europe, especially Italy and France.

(Kate Moss is also cited by the study being quoted as saying women should cover up, which is funny because Kate’s the most Most Likely To Be Naked model ever.) I don’t doubt that Duchess Kate’s inspired women to purchase more preppy fashions like the ones at LK Bennett and Reiss. But there’s something else this “study” might want to note: the UK is cold, y’all. Colder than Italy. Colder than France.
Just a thought. [NY Daily News]
