As it turns out, Hillary Clinton is not a robot. You see, robots don’t break bones. They don’t even have bones. They have gears. So Clinton’s recent elbow fracture after a fall in the State Department garage (what exactly was old Hil doing down there, we wonder…) is unequivocal proof that she is, in fact, human. Nice to know, right?
In the spirit of this new discovery, we’d like to offer Hillary our cast-y condolences. What would you write on her cast? Let us know in the comments. Keep reading »
I may be generalizing, but most guys are pretty into the idea of dating a girl who’s bisexual. Because, though it may never actually happen, you know that if your girlfriend likes chicks, there’s the potential there for not only some girl-on-girl action, but also possibly, some day, a threesome, that holy grail of male sexual experiences.
But what about the reverse? Are women into dating bisexual men? Totally impartial? Turned off? Personally, I don’t see anything wrong with bisexuality, but always have had the nagging feeling that being bi is basically just a pit stop on the road to gay. (Gay, for the record, is also a fine place, but not a place I’d want my boyfriend to wind up.)

Marc Jacobs’ new ad campaign is a bit mystifying. Why, we’d like to know, is model Natasa Vojnovik hanging by her ankles from a window? We’re all for death-defying stunts, but this one doesn’t seem to have much of a purpose. You can’t see the clothes, you can’t see her face, and I’m not entirely sure that “clothing you’ll look good while being dangled from your Park Avenue window by mobsters” is much of a selling point.

It has been raining on and off in New York for weeks and we are sick of it. It’s easy to prepare for cold weather rain: wellies, a water repellent jacket, massive black umbrella, and, for the really dedicated, a hat. But the task gets considerably more difficult when the pelting rain is combined with heat and humidity, aka The Perfect Storm of All Things That Make Women Look Messy, Terrible, and Grumpy. In the interest of keeping you dry both from rain and copious amounts of sweat, we’ve found a few summer appropriate, rain-resisting wardrobe staples. Here’s what you need… Keep reading »
Despite her massive U.S. failure last year — one which culminated in closing every store she’d opened in a matter of months — Russian teen designer and heiress Kira Plastinina is reopening two L.A. stores in the coming weeks. But this time, she’s got a new name — K. Plastinina rather than Kira Plastinina — and a second, higher priced line. That may distract people from the hilariousness of the venture for a bit, but this doesn’t seem like particularly sound business strategy. She’s already got 70 successful stores in Russia and we’re kind of wondering why she won’t just let it go and realize that we don’t want her tacky junk here. But she does get points for persistence!

I’ve been a little obsessed with the Doodle Bra since we did a post about it way back in March. And now, finally, mine arrived at the office a couple days ago after weeks of waiting. Oh, the intricate fantasies I had about all the ways my life would improve when the color-and-wash bra arrived and we became inseparable. Keep reading »
Alexandra Heminsley thought she’d gotten lucky on her vacation to Africa: only one mosquito bite, and a tiny one at that. As it turned out, the small, red bump on the inside of her arm wasn’t so much a mosquito bite as it was a Tumbu Fly egg. Yes, an egg inside her arm. And what comes from eggs? Baby insects. And what do those baby insects do when they are born trapped under someone skin? Freak the f**k out.

Let me just preface this whole thing by saying that I would give my non-existent left nut to look like Gisele Bundchen. She’s about a thousand feet tall, skinny and has a bangin’ bod and I want in, so call me girl. That said, Gisele’s not the one I’d switch with if I was looking to be a high fashion model. While catwalkers like Natalia Vodianova can transition seamlessly from one look to the next, Gisele is always more or less her boring old gorgeous self.
If you ask us, that’s why her Vanity Fair cover brought in the mag’s lowest newsstand sales in two years and her Bazaar cover a few months back bombed as well. Gisele covers aren’t not selling because she’s “losing her looks,” as Vanity Fair spokeswoman Beth Kseniak suggested the other day — the girl remains smoking hot. It’s just not the sort of hot that allows for much imagination. Plus, who actually wants to read what Gisele has to say? She’s a model, not an entertainer. Keep reading »
Those of you who don’t live in downtown New York may not be familiar with the new Calvin Klein Jeans billboard gracing a corner in Soho. Let me explain: the thing is enormous, taking up the entire side of a building, and its four scantily-clad participants look just about ready to have a tired, drunken threesome. (Well, three of them might, anyway. The fourth dude is just so over it and needs a nap on the ground.) In short, it is incredibly hot in a sweaty, semi-trashy way. And sometimes, that’s all you need.

Nary a day goes by lately without another store closing, one more report of plummeting sales figures and a bright glint of hope that Crocs may finally go under due to massive losses. Some economists and fashion analysts are even saying that these tough times have resulted in Depression-era style having a resurgence (not always a bad thing), like muted color palettes and longer skirts. But while the tanking economy is forcing some of us into Ramen dinners, ankle length sack skirts and boring colors, others are telling all economic indicators to screw themselves and sticking with bright, hot little dresses. And they’re doing better than most. Keep reading »
