Miranda Kerr Shows Off Her Nipple For V Magazine

Miranda Kerr, Victoria’s Secret model and submissive wife to Orlando Bloom, posed for the new issue of V Magazine as La Cicciolina. Who’s that, you ask? Just a famous ’70s porn star/Italian politician, who famously gave her political stump speeches with one breast out. Cicciolina, real name Ilona Staller, was elected to Italy’s parliament in 1987, and also had a musical career spanning three decades. More recently, she founded her own political party, the Democracy, Nature and Love Party, which is pro-gay marriage, advocates for a minimum wage, and wants to reopen brothels around Italy. But you don’t really care about that — you just want to see Miranda Kerr with her boob out. Lucky for you, the NSFW version is right after the jump (along with a pic of the original La Cicciolina).

Well Played: Alexa Chung Looking Awesome, Once Again

This is the kind of pitch perfect get up Alexa Chung wears to the friggin’ airport, you guys. Is it any wonder so many of have tried and failed to pull off her bangs? In overalls, a simple button down and a well-arranged trench, she makes the mere mortals flying with her look like disheveled garbage trolls. Alexa, will you sell me your style secrets? I’d pay top dollar, swear. [Photos: Fame/Flynet]

Brent the monkey is a better artist than you

They say those that cannot paint, write. Well, not actually. But as someone with absolutely zero artistic talent, I’m in awe of this monkey’s prize-winning artwork. Brent, a chimpanzee who lives at Chimp Haven in Louisiana, was awarded a $10,000 prize for his painting. Thirty-seven-year-old Brent is a retired lab monkey, who now lives at the rescue center. Brent’s winnings will go toward supporting Chimp Haven’s work.

And if you’re curious just how you get a chimp to paint, the answer is: very carefully. The canvases were held outside of each monkey’s enclosure while it went to town with tempera paint. “If we handed the canvas to them where it was on the inside, they might not want to hand it back,” said Chimp Haven prez Cathy Willis Spraetz. “They might throw it around and step on it.” (Me too, Brent, me too.)

Must Haves: All About Overall Dresses

Let’s face it. We’re not all Alexa Chungs who can wear skintight overalls and look adorable and comfortable doing it. The overalls trend is not for everyone, but it can be — if you’re willing to be a bit creative about it. I’m not going to try straight up overalls, but an overall dress? That’s my style. After the jump, nine cute overall dresses you can wear layered over button-ups, blouses or just a bra-let, if you want.

Aren’t you just completely jealz of her mellow lifestyle? [Photo: Fame/Flynet]

prince

There’s really only one man who can get away with wearing a blouse, and that’s Mr. Purple Rain himself, Prince. Nearly 30 years after “Purple Rain” debuted, Prince is still killing it style-wise, and the recent Twitter convert’s music is still as relevant and sexy as ever. Seriously, did you hear his new track, “Breakfast Can Wait”? But how do you wear Prince? Very carefully, as it turns out. Very carefully.

We were intrigued by the possibility of taking his purple-suited awesomeness and translating it into a modern, lady-friendly look (though you’ll have to find your own hair mousse, sorry). Click through to see just how we did.

On the one hand, summer holidays are awesome. On the other, Labor Day weekend marks the unofficial end of the season. So while we’re stoked to have Monday off, we’re not so excited about the prospect of colder days and wearing more layers. It’s with that in mind that we made this Summer Bummer mix, full of songs that deftly capture that melancholy end of summer vibe. Take a listen, and share your favorite sad summer jams in the comments. Keep reading »

"Here we are now, entertain us!"

This one’s an oldie but a goodie: Riot grrl hero and fellow Colonel Mustard fan Kathleen Hanna is the woman responsible (in small part, anyway) for the epic Nirvana song “Smells Like Teen Spirit.” In this clip from her 2010 performance at Joe’s Pub in NYC, Hanna tells the story of hanging out with Kurt, getting really wasted, and coming up with the now-classic line, which she happened to drunkenly spray paint on the walls of Kurt’s rented apartment. The 10-minute performance covers the beginnings of Nirvana, Bikini Kill, and just how hard Kathleen had to work to keep her band together. It’s worth it, if for no other reason than to see Hanna belt out “Teen Spirit” in her trademark girlish lilt. [Dangerous Minds]

Luxuriate In This Terrifying Portable Plug In Steam Cabinet

Sometimes you’re like, “Geez, I really wish I could enjoy a healthy, invigorating steam while watching ‘Rizzoli & Isles’ in my living room.”  You are always saying that and you know it! Too bad you — and “Rizzoli & Isles” — weren’t around in 1983, when some monster took it upon himself to invent a portable, plug-in steam cabinet, available for sale in the Fall/Winter 1983 Sears Catalog. All for the the low, low, price of $389 in 1983 dollars, which is basically the down payment on a house in today’s money. [Wired]
