I’m pretty sure Jimmy Fallon collaborates with Justin Bieber just so he can wear the fake Bieber hair. Watch his Present Bieber meets Future Bieber perfume ad to see the pair at work. Keep reading »
I spent much of my twenties locked in one simpering relationship after another. I don’t blame the guys I dated, but rather the choices I made, and I’m determined that somebody learn from — and avoid — my crappy decisions. Take a look at these seven tips — and please, feel free to add your own in the comments. Keep reading »
The Internets are all aflutter this week after a few emails a British woman named Carolyn Bourne sent to her future daughter-in-law Heidi Withers went viral. The crux of the emails? Withers apparently visited Bourne’s home with her fiance Freddie and the visit went terribly awry, so Bourne took it upon herself to write Withers a scathing message, counting all the ways in which her behavior was inappropriate, rude or uncouth. Now the world has pegged Bourne as the worst mother-in-law ever, and there’s no doubt that her own letter to Withers ironically lacked compassion, kindness and empathy. But! I happen to agree with pretty much every thing Bourne has to say about manners.
Check out her letter after the jump. Keep reading »
Sheer clothing is a sexy, revealing way to dress, but if you’re not careful, you can show juusssst a little too much. Not that that’s necessarily a bad thing; if you’re Kim Kardashian, who rocked a sheer shirt over a sheer bra in New York City this week, you can probably get away with it. Click through for some more sexy celebs in sheer, see-through fabric. (Caution: Some shots are NSFW!)
Before the Internet took over our lives and blogs and Tumblrs were the common parlance for self-indulgent self-expression, there were fanzines. And I had one. Actually, a few.
It’s hard to imagine a time before the Internet was able to connect people with like-minded obsessions so quickly and easily, but 20 years ago, when dial-up was the only way to get online, blogs weren’t an option. Instead, creative types — social misfits and weirdos, artists and writers — made hand-crafted magazines, called fanzines, relying on scammed photocopies and cut-and-paste aesthetics to express themselves.

God, James effing Franco. I hate James Franco so much. Why? James Franco believes — and the world seems to be all too happy to confirm — that he is smarter and more clever and funnier than he really is. He is not any of those things! It’s a conspiracy! Don’t believe it, people! Look, James Franco happens to be very good at one thing: being very, very attractive. James Franco has been riding on his pretty points for a long time now, and I’m so over it. His art sucks, his performance art sucks, his writing certifiably sucks, and judging from his nearly-unlistenable musical collaboration with performance artist Kalup Linzy, he is terrible at music, too. Stop the madness! Do not perpetuate this fallacy of Franco as some kind of genius renaissance mouse or something. He’s just a very hot dude who has used his prettiness to pull a sham on the world. (And okay fine, here’s the stupid video, after the jump.) Keep reading »
We’re all for wearing completely unreasonable and painful shoes, but en pointe Louboutins? No. No no no. Louboutin made them to benefit the English National Ballet — they’ll be auctioned off in a charity auction. Said designer Christian Louboutin: “Isn’t the classical dancing ballet slipper the ultimate heel? The heel which makes dancers closer than any other women to the sky, closer to heaven.” Kind of “Black Swan”-ish, no? [Grazia Fashion] Keep reading »
