Itching to dress up like a style dah-ling this Halloween? Dear old kooky Karl Lagerfeld is the obvious choice, but who wants to be obvious on arguably the most important fashion day of the year? Trust me: heads will turn if you arrive at your Halloween fete dressed as classic Coco herself. We prefer the older, established Coco Chanel, whom we imagine left a trail of heaven-sent No. 5 perfume in her wake, so we looked to Shirley MacLaine, star of Lifetime’s “Coco Chanel,” for inspiration.

My plane landed after midnight last night. I could use about six more hours of sleep, and I’m not sure where, exactly, I stashed my hairbrush or my deodorant. Maybe I took a bath two days ago, but I honestly don’t remember. In any case, I haven’t shaved my legs and armpits for a week and my werewolf-ian brows need a good, thorough tweezing. But no matter! I’ve got on my leopard-print leggings and a hot pink t-shirt to, uh, deflect attention from all that.
I wouldn’t go into the office looking like this. Hell, I wouldn’t leave my apartment looking like this. So why is my boyfriend—the person I regularly depend on for oral sex and foot rubs—sitting just 10 feet away from me? Because I have gotten comfortable in our relationship. Perhaps too comfortable.

You’d best believe I’d be pissy if I’d wasted my weekend fielding phone calls from frantic friends and family who thought I was dead! But leave it to Maya Angelou, author of I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings
, to be as polite as can be responding to rumors that she’s kicked the bucket. The very-much-alive 81-year-old poet says the rumors “based on an erroneous account” that she’s been hospitalized and headed to the Pearly Gates are a “burden,” especially after her young grandson called her in hysterics. Miss Class Act, though, looks genuinely concerned for the mortal soul of whoever’s spreading this nasty gossip. “I feel sorry for a person who only has that much of life,” she said. “You should be living your own life, not talking about someone else’s death!”
Methinks Ms. Angelou hasn’t taken her head out of a poetry book in the past 10 years long enough to notice rumor-mongering about celeb deaths is a far more popular pastime than, saying, reading poetry. But really, people, she’s lived a hard life. Let the lady grow old in peace! Keep reading »

Police have finally arrested the man who allegedly filmed nude videos of ESPN sportscaster Erin Andrews through a peephole in a hotel room. He’s an insurance agent named Michael David Barrett, 47, from Westmont, Ill., who appears to have no direct connection to Andrews. Police have charged him with interstate stalking after allegedly taping videos of Andrews walking around hotel rooms naked, trying to sell the videos to TMZ, and then posting them online. Classy guy!

We’ve always wanted a tiny handbag which would look good while bludgeoning purse-snatchers! (So what if identity theft is more en vogue than purse-snatching? Minor detail.) Behold this Miss Piggy pink-colored, leather shoulder bag, which should do the trick. At the very least, the next time we’re annoyed at our guy, can envision ourselves swinging this femme-y Kate Spade purse behind us as we stalk off in a huff. [$147, Bluefly] Keep reading »
Kind of ironic, huh? A book called Hungry that I just ate right up as quickly as I could. But model Crystal Renn‘s autobiography is that good. Seriously, I could not put down Hungry: A Young Model’s Story of Appetite, Ambition, and the Ultimate Embrace of Curves for two days straight.
In her incredible memoir, written with former Sassy health editor Marjorie Ingall, Crystal shares how she was just a teen girl living with her grandmother in Clinton, Mississippi, when a modeling scout changed her life. The scout approached her at a charm school class and said Crystal could be just like Gisele Bundchen if she wanted to—meaning, she had to take off a lot of weight. Over the next several months, a 165-pound Crystal became anorexic, starving herself so she could drop 70 pounds and become a “straight-size” model. Keep reading »
Fall fashion gets a little ho-hum—another cardigan, anyone?—which is why we’re ordering this short-sleeved military jacket by BB Dakota, stat. Unlike other military jackets, it’s not made of long or bulky fabric which covers up your body. Nor does it scream “nautical trend!” which was so last season anyway. We dig any piece in our closet that is demure enough for the office but still funky enough to wear on a night out. [$70, Revolve Clothing] Keep reading »
