Dior Finally Addresses The Market For Overpriced Designer Temporary Tattoos

Designer Lollipops

Great, except that the designer is The Situation. Read More »

I am way too old to readily admit this, but I still harbor a magpie-like inclination towards particularly sparkly temporary tattoos. Oh, they sell $2 packs of glitter dragons at the Asian convenience store on the corner? Well, I’m probably going to buy some and put them on my body. Also, I can’t find anything about this on the Internet so there is a good chance it no longer exists and nobody will ever believe me, but when I was a kid they came out with these Band-Aids that were, like, pictures and shapes of animals? Did this ever happen? Anyway, they ruled and once I went to the beach covered in them, and nobody wanted to play with me because they thought I had a communicable disease of the flesh. Whatever, assholes!

That’s probably why I’m feeling compelled to purchase these stupid expensive 24-karat gold leaf Dior temporary tattoos. Absolutely not under any circumstances do I need them, but they look so shiny, and wouldn’t that be the perfect climax to my lifelong fake tattoo affinity? Do you think I should get drunk and order them, then lose my shit when I see the charge on my card and realize what I’ve done? Probably! [Nordstrom]

Behold, a dramatic reading of Gwyneth Paltrow's cookbook. Read More »

Here are just a few of the many reasons I wake up every day pissed off that I’m not Margot Tenenbaum: child prodigy, award-winning author and playwright, perfect bob and the face to pull it off, mink coat, wooden finger, cold, haughty aloofness, perfect eyeliner application, marriage to Raleigh St. Clair, verboten romance with hot brother Richie, affair with Eli Cash. She is my dream girl insofar as in my dreams, I am her. But you know who I think is super, super lame? Like, the lamest? Gwyneth Paltrow! She is cripplingly lame. I can’t even reconcile her acting ability with her actual existence because I’m just like, oh my god, Goop, put your Margot clothes back on already for Christ’s sake. Keep reading »

Step inside Laura Jane's St. Augustine, FL home!

We’ve been big fans of Laura Jane Grace long before she came out as a transgender woman earlier this year, but we love the lead singer of seminal punk band Against Me! all the more now that we’ve witnessed her incredibly brave, positive attitude toward her recent transition. Needless to say, we’re a little jealous that Grace gave MTV’s House of Style hosts Joan Smalls and Karlie Kloss a comprehensive tour of her Florida home, including her enviable record collection, her wife and daughter, and yes, her closet. Laura Jane is a true inspiration, and not only to the trans community: everybody can learn a little something from her openness and her adamance that above all, the most important thing is to feel comfortable in your own skin. Not to mention that the advice she gives about maintaining good skincare habits regardless of how grimy you are otherwise is invaluable. [NYMag.com]

It’s Burtenay, bitch, and the wispy bowl-cut bangs and pained faraway stare suggest to me that her every move is being controlled by remote forces. Except for the shoeless convenience store restroom trips and puffed Cheeto consumption. That’s alllll organic Britney.

Holiday Beauty How-To: Jessica Alba’s Berry-Stained Lips

I am forever envious of Jessica Alba‘s uncanny ability to always look like she’s being professionally backlit (is she?). The woman just glows! Of course, I think her makeup might have a little something to do with it, too: pearly peach-brown shadow paired with a berry lip stain is a fresh look that’s a few steps above “neutral,” which is a welcome change from winter’s matte smoky eyes and dark wine lipsticks. If you, too, want to look like you’re perpetually illuminated by candlelight this holiday season, and I know you do, let’s break it down after the jump … Keep reading »

Anna Wintour’s Boyfriend Of 13 Years Defends Her Rumored Ambassadorship

“It’s a little bit of male chauvinism … It’s not just Anna — I see powerful women who really get slammed for being too forthright or running their business in a very determined way. If [former GE CEO] Jack Welch were being named as a potential ambassador, people wouldn’t be saying, ‘Oh, but hang on, Jack’s a little strict in the way he runs his companies.’”

Shelby Bryan, telecommunications pioneer, international business executive, venture capitalist (disclaimer, I just copy and pasted that straight off his Wikipedia page), and Anna Wintour‘s longtime boyfriend, doesn’t exactly confirm the rumor of his significant other’s potential ambassadorship, but he stands to defend the idea of it. I’m not surprised that Anna’s partner of 13 years appears to be intelligent, sensible, and savvy to the existence of gender inequality and double standards in the business arena. Because, you know, Nuclear Wintour does not suffer fools, and she certainly does not suffer foolish men. Just one question: does this Mr. Bryan have a son? [Racked]

Bill Cosby Needs Your Help Deciding His Best Sweater Of All Time

Bill Cosby Gets Flashed!
Our fave TV dad got flashed by a lady with a mustache in NYC. Read More »

You guys, Bill Cosby has a very important question, and when Bill Cosby has a question, it is in your best interest to give Bill Cosby an answer. So let me relay it to you: Mr. Cosby, and/or whoever represents Mr. Cosby on this here Internet, tweeted, “Over the years, I have worn many sweaters. Tell me which is your favorite.” Well now! I could pick 50 favorites, just off the top of my head (holler at my major high school depressive episode where I laid on the couch in a bathrobe watching reruns for two years straight!), but to make things a little easier on those of you not as well-versed in the subtleties of the Huxtable family wardrobe, Bill has attached a very cool poll on his website with photos of himself (as Cliff Huxtable, natch) sporting an array of sweaters. I will have you know that the 24 options currently presented are just round 1 — eventually, of all the Cosby sweaters Bill Cosby has worn, one sole sweater will emerge victorious, and I think you definitely want to make sure that it’s your favorite sweater.

Moving on from America’s favorite Canadian male lesbian can’t be easy, but you’ve got to hand it to Selena Gomez: the girl knows full well that the only way to go is up. Golden-boy good looks and a genius IQ tend to be mutually exclusive (in our experience, at least), but throw some Hollywood royalty lineage into the mix and it’s game over … which is why we’ve held Rhodes scholar and UNICEF goodwill ambassador Ronan Farrow close to our hearts for, like, pretty much ever. The biological son of Woody Allen and Mia Farrow was accepted to Yale Law School after graduating college at age 15 and since then has served as a senior foreign policy official in the White House under Obama, founded the State Department Office of Global Youth Issues, and worked for Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as a special adviser during the Arab Spring, among many, many other achievements and credentials to his name. This year, Forbes Magazine ranked him number one on their “30 Under 30″ most influential people list for Law and Policy. (Of course, you would have already known this if, like me, you treat the Forbes list like it’s the personals page.) Did we mention he’s only 25? To which we say: find your own damn boyfriend, Selena, this one is ours. Take heed.
