What’s it like to have an abortion? What’s it like when your significant other has one? For many women, having an abortion feels solitary, but as almost three in ten American women will have an abortion before the age of 45, we can also consider the experience shared. Today, on the 40th anniversary of the… READ MORE »

Remember how in high school you’d invite someone over to watch a movie and then you’d accidentally actually watch the movie? But you couldn’t simply call it a night once the credits rolled because you’d been too chicken to make a move? So you’d just put on whatever channel, but as soon as you started making… READ MORE »

Last week The New York Times “Style” section reported that legs — “exposed legs, smooth and coltish” — are “tak[ing] their turn” as the body’s trendiest part. To the casual reader, it might seem strange that something as universally desirable as shapely legs could be having a moment. On the other hand, what took them so long? READ MORE »

Natalia Vodianova took part in a panel discussion at the British Vogue Festival over the weekend, where she made some ballsy statements about women and weight. The comments were sparked by British Vogue’s executive fashion director Calgary Avansino’s question: “It’s undeniable that models are very thin, expected to be very thin, and thinner than 99.9 percent of the… READ MORE »

Until scientists find an actual “cure” for baldness, dudes must choose from the following options: (a) ignoring it, (b) fighting it with hair plugs, weird creams, toupees, etc., or (c) just shaving their heads completely. A piece in today’s Times endorses the latter approach enthusiastically:
Shaving your balding head is like breaking up with… READ MORE »

Pippa Middleton was just having a nice, normal weekend in Paris when she popped by a fancy costume party for fashion label owner Arthur de Soultrait (yes, the Daily Mail has pictures of her silly outfit) and then tootled around in an Audi convertible with three handsome gentlemen on Sunday. But then the driver of her car pulled out a… READ MORE »

Thanks to a recent post on gossip blog Celebzter, “Page Six” reports that Katy Perry and male model Baptiste Giabiconi are dating. Fate masquerading as a savvy PR assistant placed them next to each other at this season’s Chanel show, where they presumably found enough time away from staring at the pretty clothes (and their own reflections in the set’sREAD MORE »

Apparently some dudes are into wearing fancy tights these days, according to upscale hosiery retailer Emilio Cavallini, who tellsWWD that purchases by men (and for men) now account for 2 to 3 percent of their annual sales. He noticed the trend about three years ago:
When we started our online shop we noticed that a lot… READ MORE »

There’s no question that Meryl Streep has displayed incredible consistency as a powerhouse actress — this Sunday will mark her seventeenth Academy Award nomination — but style-wise, she’s been a bit all over the map. To her credit, the occasional misstep has only made the journey all that much more fun (who wants to see another overly… READ MORE »

Wet ‘n’ Wild, a cosmetics company that’s surely suffering in the digital age from the un-Googleability of its name (don’t try it for yourself unless you are 1) alone, and 2) actually looking for, um, a water theme park), has finally thrown in the towel and hired their very first celebrity spokesperson. Which is the end… READ MORE »

Blake Lively’s March Elle cover is decidedly one of those “typical” ones — note the solid background and “traditional hand-on-hip pose” — that Glamour is now so decisively against. But regardless, the accompanying interview contains some gems of awkwardness, like her thoughts on motherhood: “I hope to have a few girls one day. If not… READ MORE »

After running a wholly inappropriate article on “black style” last month, editors at French Elle removed the piece without comment. They later blandly acknowledged the backlash it received with the excuse that the story was misunderstood. Speaking over the weekend, Elle’s managing editor Valerie Toranian said it was “full of good intentions” that were just expressed badly, which only ignited… READ MORE »
