Abigail Breslin, 17, Gets The “Grandma Walks The Red Carpet” Treatment

Abigail Breslin in vintage Norma Kamali

Abigail Breslin is young, beautiful, and famous, so naturally she has tons of designers tryna dress her all the time. That is exactly the reason why I’m a little confused as to why she chose this particular beast of a striped cutout dress to the Los Angeles premiere (so, like, the BIG ONE!) of “August: Osage County”. I would say that the body-hugging shape is truly great on her, and her hair and makeup look awesome, but whoa, I’m a little distracted by EVERYTHING ELSE GOING ON. Nothing like a metallic silver boob tube to make you forget that someone even has a face. Also: earrings???? I propose a new stylist for Abigail, one that will dress her like the sassy, youthful 17-year-old she is and not like my very lovely but slightly older grandmother, who is always looking for the right pair of clip-on earrings that will “cover her earlobes.”

Did Kim Kardashian Groom Baby North’s Eyebrows?

North West

I’m crossing my fingers in hopes that this is all a misunderstanding, and Kim Kardashian hasn’t actually pulled a Farrah Abraham and waxed her baby’s eyebrows, but anything is possible. Kim posted this very cute photo of North on her Instagram yesterday, and word quickly spread that it looked as if Nori had undergone a bit of brow grooming. Keep reading »

Would You Wear These Pricey Designer Flip-Flops?

I don’t blame you if flip-flops are one of the very last things on your mind today. I know that I am personally far more concerned with hunting down functional yet stylish all-weather boots (digression: do these exist, and if so, please point me in the right direction) and a down jacket that won’t make me look like I’ve been pumped full of air from the neck down. In fact, just this morning I wondered aloud, “Will I ever feel warmth again?” Keep reading »

Pantene Takes Down Sexist Stereotypes In One-Minute Commercial

And With "Mad World" As Its Soundtrack, To Boot!

Whoever is responsible for conceptualizing Pantene advertisements in the Philippines got it really, really right in this minute-long spot. Given that this is a commercial intended to sell haircare products, the clip almost seems out of left field in its simple, but powerful, social commentary. Consider this: Facebook COO and “Lean In” author Sheryl Sandberg gave the commercial, which parallels a man in the workplace (“persuasive,” “boss,” “smooth”) with a woman in the same position (“pushy,” “bossy,” “show-off”), her own thumbs-up. Granted, it doesn’t do much in the way of selling consumers on haircare, but I’m willing to bet Procter & Gamble enjoys more than enough cash to put out this ad plus 10 others schilling 2-in-1 shampoo and conditioner.

“You Shall Not Pass, Dog” Captures The Best Of Cat Vs. Dog Dynamics

You Shall Not Pass, Dog!

Pets! They’re weird. Weirdest of all, perhaps, is the unspoken dynamic between cats and dogs. Believed to despise one another, so much so that there is an animated movie about it (and a sequel!), it’s really much less of an outright hatred and more just an implied narrative of canine fear. Most cats don’t even do anything; dogs are just inherently terrified of them. Sittin’ at the top of the stairs, at the end of the hallway, on the kitchen counter … wherever cats may be, dogs refuse to pass them. The fear seems unfounded until the dogs are actually coaxed into moving — then you see that a cat’s strongest instinct, its most base pleasure of all, is to snag a dog’s tail in passing. Woof! I submit as proof this excellent compilation, entitled “You Shall Not Pass, Dog.” It is just over 3 glorious minutes of silly dogs with the fear of God in ‘em as they attempt, and fail, to venture past sitting cats.
