Give Me A Paper Cut! Cynthia Rowley Band-Aids Are Too Cute

Designer Band-Aids: redonkulous in theory, adorable in actuality. Cynthia Rowley‘s blinged-out bandages for Johnson & Johnson are 20 for $10, with one dollar of proceeds going to the charity Design Ignites Change. The group gets high school and college students involved in design and architecture. Super-cute and for a good cause? I might just wear one even without a cut. [CynthiaRowley.com] Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: McEnroe Makes A Bad Call On Female Tennis Players

  • Tennis legend John McEnroe said in a CBS conference call that female tennis players just might not be up to the challenges of the game: “I think that it’s asking too much of the women. They shouldn’t be playing as many events as the men. … You shouldn’t push them to play more than they’re capable of,” McEnroe said. “They should be required to be in less events, there should be less events for the women. It seems it takes an actual meltdown on the court or women quitting the game altogether before they realize there’s a need to change the schedule.” Um, I think that’s what people used to say about female doctors and lawyers, too.

  • Is Helen Mirren really sparking a trend of over-50s ladies in bikinis? We doubt it. But yay for body acceptance at all ages? [Daily Mail]

In Defense Of Betty Draper

That Anna Wintour, She’s Such A Doll!

A job at Vogue? No, thank you. But we would love these two pint-sized dolls of editor Anna Wintour and creative director Grace Coddington. Barneys New York commissioned tiny Anna and Grace to be auctioned off on CharityBuzz.com, beginning August 31st, to benefit the NYC AIDS Fund. The anime-eyed pair took two weeks to make and artist Andrew Yang even trimmed Anna’s bob himself! [NY Times] Keep reading »

AIDS Group Files Complaint Against Larry Flynt Over Condom-less Porn

AIDS activists have filed a workplace safety complaint against Hustler honcho Larry Flynt over the amount of condom-less sex in all of his skin flicks. On Thursday, activists descended upon Los Angeles’ Division of Occupational Safety and Health office with 100 DVDs to show that only one scene in one porno showed a performer using a condom. Condoms, of course, help protect against the spread of HIV. Keep reading »

Think drug trafficking is reprehensible? Get a load out of tiger trafficking. When a 31-year-old Thai woman arose suspicion at the Bangkok, Thailand, international airport recently, authorities ran her luggage through the X-ray scan to take a look. Turns out, she was smuggling a tiger cub inside a suitcase of stuffed animals. The poor little guy was doped up on more drugs than a Deadhead. Keep reading »

We Love Simon Doonan’s Halloween “Costume Couture” For Target!

Simon Doonan For Target Halloween Costumes
Lady Gaga? Sarah Palin? Bitch, please, try to think of something more inspired for Halloween. If you live anywhere near a Target store, then Simon Doonan can help. The quirky style writer and creative director for Barneys designed a line of “Costume Couture” especially for Tar-jay and it’s perfect for pairs and pooches! I’m loving the spaghetti and meatball, A-list celebrity and a paparazzo, and the candy corn. Now, who will be the spaghetti to my meatball this October 31st?

Quotable: Levi Johnston Un-Apologizes To Sarah Palin

“The only thing I wish I wouldn’t have done is to put out that apology [to Sarah Palin in People magazine] because it kind of makes me sound like a liar. And I’ve never lied about anything. So that’s probably the only thing. The rest of the stuff I can live with.”

Levi Johnston takes back his apology to the Palins for “youthful indiscretions.” You heard it here first: He does not regret his Playgirl spread one bit. [TV Guide] Keep reading »
