We’ve never really heard of Bella Heathcote before, but we do know she’s in the new “Dark Shadows” remake starring opposite Johnny Depp, who will no doubt be channeling some version of Keith Richards. We also know she’s got pretty major bangs, and has yet to offend us sartorially, having picked a very lovely cream frilly thing to wear to the film’s Los Angeles premiere. Good show, Ms. Heathcote, good show!

Maurice Sendak Didn’t Mind If You Ate His Drawings

“Once a little boy sent me a charming card with a little drawing on it. I loved it. I answer all my children’s letters — sometimes very hastily — but this one I lingered over. I sent him a card and I drew a picture of a Wild Thing on it. I wrote, ‘Dear Jim: I loved your card.’ Then I got a letter back from his mother and she said, ‘Jim loved your card so much he ate it.’ That to me was one of the highest compliments I’ve ever received. He didn’t care that it was an original Maurice Sendak drawing or anything. He saw it, he loved it, he ate it.”

– Late, great children’s book author Maurice Sendak (Where the Wild Things Are) recalling one of his favorite exchanges with a fan. How frigging darling. He ate it up, he loved it so! [Goodreads]

Seriously, these things are making me GAG. Just in the same way that Bon Iver erotica gives me the major skeeves, these “duck nails,” as they’re being called, evoke a powerful internal response. They’re just so repulsive, so nauseating, so wrong. (More examples of duck nails after the jump.)

The 2012 Costume Institute Gala/Met Ball: The Totally WTF

The Met Ball, held each year at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, is Fashion with a capital F’s version of the Oscars. Okay, so no awards are given out — this year’s gala celebrated “parallels between Miuccia and the late Elsa Schiaparelli” — but the red carpet arrivals put the Academy Awards to shame. This is where Hollywood’s hottest and fashion’s finest put on some of the most glamourous, and often one-of-a-kind, garments that New York. Paris, and Milan have to offer. Sure, some of the looks may be over-the-top, the Met Ball is one night when crazy couture trumps ho-hum. Speaking of which…

The 2012 Costume Institute Gala/Met Ball: The Good

Dawn Loggins Overcomes Homelessness To Attend Harvard

Watch Video

Dawn Loggins spent the summer before her senior year of high school at the prestigious North Carolina Governors School, but when the summer was over, nobody from her family came to pick her up. Her troubled parents, plagued by poverty and drug abuse, had abandoned her, and Dawn was left homeless. She was forced to rely on the kindness of friends and school faculty for a place to stay. She got a job at her high school as a janitor to support herself and continued to apply herself in school. And it paid off: Loggins was accepted to Harvard University’s class of 2016. “If there is anybody at all who has a dream,” Dawn told a local TV station,”then they can definitely make it happen. There are no excuses. It depends on you and no one else.”
