From The Department Of You Have Got To Be Kidding Me

So there’s a new site for ladies! Ladies who like business! And it’s got a stupid, stupid, stupid name. The site Mogulite has rebranded itself as TheJaneDough.com. But that’s not all! Its tagline is: “All the business news we knead.” Get it? Because you need news like you knead bread. Because you’re a woman! And that’s what women do! In the kitchen!

Mogulite’s current mission is to cover power players, but apparently its owner(s) — Dan Abrams and Mediaite — are looking to compete in the working women space. So what’s the point of The Jane Dough? Launching under its new moniker, stories will include: “Our take on obnoxious women’s stereotypes, radical CEOs who are promoting female executives, and the absurd coverage that workplace sexism gets in the press — these were the stories we got really excited about — and, judging by the traffic, our readers got fired up over them, as well,” says editor Amy Tennery. So far so good. So then why give the site such a stupid, demeaning name and tagline?

The Good, The Bad & The WTF At The 2011 British Fashion Awards

Last night, the British celebrated their own particular brand of style with the British Fashion Awards, honoring the best in designing and fashion talent from around England. Women swept the awards, winning top honors for best fashion and accessories designers — Victoria Beckham and Charlotte Dellal, respectively — while Alexander McQueen head Sarah Burton took home the award for fashion designer of the year. Alexa Chung was crowned most stylish (what is this, high school?) for the second year in a row, beating out both Kates — Middleton and Moss — and Stella McCartney, Christopher Kane and Kim Jones took home additional awards.

But what you really want to know is: what did they wear? After the jump, some of the best and worst to grace the fashion red carpet.

We’ve always wanted to like Marni — the high-end, highly structured Italian designer line. But truthfully, it’s hard to imagine how to wear many of designer Consuelo Castiglioni’s boxy, somewhat masculine creations. Still, we’re curious to see how Castiglioni’s collaboration with H&M might turn out, especially because she claims, rather unconvincingly, that “everything has the same level of quality, craft and attention to detail Marni is known for.” Either way, the collab is sure to gain at least a little extra attention off the Versace x H&M collection hype. Check out a few of the upcoming looks in the video.

“I used to drive ["Drive" director Nicolas Winding Refn] to and from work when we were doing the movie — I didn’t work very much on “Drive,” I just came into work and stared at Ryan Gosling occasionally — and one day we shot until two in the morning. I’d never had Red Bull before, and I had, like, six of them that night, and I was like, “This is THE BEST THING, EVER!” So I was freaking out. We got in the car at the end of the night, and I had been wearing these shoes that really hurt, and I had pink fluffy slippers in the back of my car and I put them on; meanwhile, Nic had got sent a bunch of free tracksuits by Puma, so he had been wearing Puma tracksuits to work every day, and he looked hilarious.

Style 911: “What Do I Wear With My New Anthro Dress?”

I am the proud new owner of Rodna Halter Dress from Anthropologie–which is a store I usually just drool over.  This is my first purchase from Anthro and I have to say it was an impulse buy! Now I’m not sure where/how to wear my new favorite dress.  It’s a fine dark navy corduroy and the neckline is beautiful.  I purchased the size 12 and it makes my short, curvy self look fabulous. The lines look formal, but the fabric and the fact that it has elastic in the sides makes it a bit more casual.  Please help! — Mina Keep reading »

TLC’s T-Boz & Other Celebs Who Blew Their Fortunes

Say it ain’t so! TLC member T-Boz, one of the ladies who just a few years ago sang about wanting “No Scrubs,” filed for bankruptcy today. T-Boz — real name Tionne Watkins — owes more than $768,000 to creditors, most of which is related to her $1.2 million home. Ms. Boz does have money coming in  – she makes around $11,700 a month in income and spends around $8,800 — but she hasn’t been able to make any headway on her nearly million dollars of debt. She’s also claiming that a portion of her outstanding debt is related to unpaid child support bills, totaling somewhere around $250,000. [TMZ]

Of course, T-Boz is hardly the only celeb to file for bankruptcy  After the jump, some other celebs who blew their fortunes.

Hey, look, I don’t like snakes. I don’t like snakes because I fundamentally disagree with an animal that doesn’t have legs. I just think that is WRONG, mmkay? But you know what? Live and let live. Sandra, as featured in Animal Planet’s “My Extreme Animal Phobia,” happens to think that kittens are the devil’s work. As Sandra’s not-very-sympathetic friend explains, “It’s like, when she hears ‘meow,’ it’s like she starts crying. I’m like, are you SERIOUS?” Hey, one woman’s adorable fluff ball is another woman’s waking nightmare or whatever. [YouTube]
