We’re really digging Sara Bareilles’ laid-back relaxed style during a recent appearance in Chicago. And we’re really feeling printed denim for spring. So we decided to see if we could copy Bareilles’ snakeskin jean look. Check out our finds after the jump!

Not only can Flo the Wonderdog do a great jump off a high-dive board, but she’s also a pro when it comes to scrambling up the diving board ladder. She’s also not afraid of the pool slide, and skitters down it like a champ. Color us impressed. [Boing Boing]
I can’t believe I’m admitting this, but I generally kind of like Kourtney Kardashian’s style. The wee-est Kardashian is also often the best dressed of the bunch, choosing tailored slacks and Victorian-inspired blouses over the redonkulous over-the-top boob-baring bandage dresses of her sisters. That said, what the frig is this thing? Kourtney looks like she’s mugged a circus clown. But maybe I’m way off here. What do you think?
The nice folks over at Vintage Ads compiled a collection of the faces of Betty Crocker throughout the years. It’s nice to see that while the visage may have changed, the commitment to a perfectly curled coif and magenta sweater sets has remained. [Vintage Ads]
To be honest, Milan Fashion Week — which just wrapped up this week — isn’t really my favorite. The designers that show out of Milan tend to be older, stodgier and less young and fun than their London and New York counterparts, yet lack the romance and refinement of the Paris shows. Considering Milan’s position as a somewhat secondary Italian city — whose place on the world map is linked pretty much solely to its status as a design city these days — it’s not surprising that its designers would be somewhat more limited in their scope. Even so, there was some beautiful clothing coming out of Italy’s fashion capital. Check out some of our favorite pieces from the Fall/Winter 2012 collections.
Could there be two worlds set more far apart than that of party monster baseball player Kenny Powers and the genteel universe of butlers, maids and secret eavesdropping at Downton Abbey? And yet! When the two come together, something more than magical occurs. It’ll have you wondering why it took so long for someone to sloppily edit these two TV shows together.
Look, you could choose to get really upset about the rampant objectification of women and flagrant misogyny in a movie like “Piranha 3DD.” Or, you could realize that this is a film starring David Hasselhoff and Ving Rhames — and that the latter sports a pair of prosthetic gun legs throughout. Do you really want to waste your time being mad at that? Instead, why not put on some 3-D glasses and enjoy the very top-heavy ride? I know I will. [Perez Hilton]
Most everyone thinks life-sharing web platform Pinterest is primarily a tool for the ladies. But not so! Men, too, are jumping on the Pinterest wagon. But they’ve found innovative ways of using the visually-oriented tool … to objectify women. That’s right, dude-focused Pinterest categories are cropping up from male users who’ve found that the site is a great way to catalog all the women they’d like to bang.
The Internet is full of many wonderful things, among them how to play guitar, how to redecorate your house, and also, how to draw a cat, complete with a party hat. [Flickr]
The first thing you’ll notice about 19-year-0ld Lucas Pittaway is his striking resemblance to fellow Aussie Heath Ledger. But aside from his Ledger-esque curly locks and good looks, Pittaway’s got intense acting skills. They can be seen in the new indie film “The Snowtown Murders” (out in the U.S. on March 2), based on the true story of one of Australia’s most notorious serial killers, John Bunting. Bunting, along with several accomplices, murdered 11 people in the ’90s and buried many of them in storage containers. Pittaway plays Jamie Vlassakis, one of Bunting’s unwilling accomplices and the heart of the film. “The Snowtown Murders” isn’t easy to watch — and some of it is graphically horrific — but it’s a haunting portrayal of a killer going unnoticed amid the malaise of suburban life. And we think Lucas Pittaway — who by the way, cries very beautifully in this movie — is destined for great things. After the jump, five things you should know about Pittaway.
