New Software Can Tell You How Much Pics Have Been Photoshopped

Surprise, surprise: basically all of the photos we see in the media today are Photoshopped in some way. Lighting is tweaked; blemishes, pores, and cellulite vanish; and wrinkles smooth into oblivion. But now two computer image specialists at Dartmouth College have developed a software program that can tell, say, feminist bloggers just how much a…

Woman Goes Through Life Dressed Like 19th Century Author Charlotte Bronte

UPDATE: It has come to our attention from Lyn-Marie Cunliffe that this story, as it was reported on the Daily Mail UK and the UK Telegraph, is not true.  We all know that fans can be, well, fanatical. But this 49-year-old British mother has taken her love of Victorian literature just a touch too far: Lyn-Marie…

Dubious Study Finds That Women React Aggressively Toward “Sexy” Peers

Ugh. The very last thing we (i.e. women) need is a "study" claiming to observe women's snarky reactions to another woman dressed sexily. The lead author of the study begins with a quote that is concerning in and of itself: "I was convinced, having lived a life as a woman, that we're not as pleasant…

Something For Everyone: Our Holiday Beauty Gift Guide

It's almost that time of year again: you know, the time when you're obligated to blow a good chunk of your hard-earned money on your family and friends. If your inner circle is anything like mine, they sure as hell expect something nice. Oven mitts just aren't going to fly for my mom anymore, and…

How To Get Kristen Stewart’s Girly Goth Look

Is it just me or has Kristen Stewart been looking her best ever while doing the "Breaking Dawn" publicity circuit? She's obviously very attractive, but some of her past appearances have made me cringe just because she looks so damn uncomfortable. I don't keep up with "Twilight," but I do keep up with celeb style,…

A Crime Of Fashion: Marc Jacobs Spring/Summer 2012 Collection Stolen!

We're all familiar with crimes of passion, but true crimes of fashion were unheard of until, well, now. It was intended for all of the (new, as-yet-unproduced) samples from Marc Jacobs' spring 2012 collection to be presented to editors tomorrow, but an unknown thief had other plans. The Telegraph reports that the entire collection ha…

Her 10 Best Looks: Camilla Belle

I wasn't aware of Camilla Belle's total bombshell status until recently. I was scrolling through Glamour's beauty blog (love!) when I came across this post and died inside. Unfortunately, she's not famous for much more than dating a Jonas brother, but I checked out her iMDB page and it looks like she has a few big movies coming…

Shopping Guide: 10 Super Sweaters

I still can't get my mind off the brutal winter to come. We've had a few bone-chilling days already, and it's only mid-November. Needless to say, it's hard to stay warm and sexy in the wintertime. Bulking up is a must so as not to freeze, but who wants to leave the house looking like…

“Tempting” Eyes Can Now Get You In Trouble In Saudi Arabia

Religious police in Saudi Arabia may now stop sluts women in public walking around with "tempting" eyes. In other words, Saudi gals with attractive peepers may be forced to cover them up, if a vice officer deems them inappropriate. This is only the most recent "repressive measure" that may be taken against women by the…

Shopping Guide: 10 Picks For Sexy Sleepwear

I've never worn a nightgown in my life. The word alone makes me cringe, and the suggestion that I invest in one even more so. I've always been under the impression that nightgowns are firmly in the "not sexy"camp. My mother wears nightgowns! What's sexy about that? (Sorry, Mom.) But a T-shirt and boxers are…

The Good, The Bad & The WTF At The MoMA Film Benefit

Earlier this week, Spanish film director Pedro Almodovar was the subject of a Chanel-sponsored Museum of Modern Art event. If that's not high-profile artsy, I don't know what the hell is. As anticipated, there was a lot of eye candy — artists, designers, movie stars, musicians … anyone who's anyone was in attendance, and the…

Oopsies: Tori Spelling’s Husband Tweeted Pic Of Her Boobs

I've never particularly wanted to see Tori Spelling's boobs. But thanks to her husband Dean McDermott, now we all can! Last night, he innocently tweeted a photo of his and Tori's young son in a funny moment with something stuck to his head. Alas, upon further inspection, Tori's naked boobs are visible in the background!

See Beyoncé’s Wedding Dress (Finally!) In “I Was Here” Video

It feels like Beyoncé and Jay-Z have been married since the beginning of time, so it's hard to believe it was only three years ago that they tied the knot. The undisputed reigning king and queen of hip hop and pop, respectively, share a look back at their wedding day in Beyonce's brand new music…

Prehistoric Dudes Did Freaky Things To Their Penises

For the record, I don't make a habit of hanging out with men who "manipulate their privates," as Archeology Daily so eloquently puts it. But a new study shows that this cringe-inducing practice goes all the way back to prehistoric Europe. Analyses of phalluses in Paleolithic art show evidence of ornamental surgery performed on penises. Javier…

Yeah, yeah, nature is beautiful, and all that … but have you really seen it up close?

11 Cool Celebrity Sister Duos

Siblings — we've all got 'em! Well, most of us at least. I don't know if you know this, but even celebrities have siblings. In fact, some of our favorite female celebrities happen to have equally cool sisters. They're not always equal in fame quotient, but that's okay — they make up for it i…

H&M has responded to a claim by The New York Daily News that Donatella Versace would not approve photographing the new Versace for H&M line worn "real women."

Stupid Rave Leads To Dolphin Casualty

I like pretty much everything more than I like raves, but I also like pretty much everything less than I like dolphins. One of my favorite sea creatures (I have many), dolphins are intelligent, loyal, and adorable. They are also highly sensitive to noise — they probably even lay claim to the best hearing i…
