A couple weeks ago, I clicked on a Twitter link from a website I follow that used to be an interesting mix of entertainment and weird news stories, but has recently devolved into link-baiting sensationalism. The link said something like, “Chinese woman dies in freak accident with runaway shopping cart. Watch the video here!” It was early, I was groggy, and I clicked the link. I don’t know what I was expecting (seriously, what the fuck was I expecting?!), but what I watched was indeed a video of a woman getting smashed against a wall by a runaway shopping cart. It was horrible and extremely upsetting. It was also a wake up call: I hadn’t even had my coffee yet, and I’d already WATCHED SOMEONE DIE — I really, really needed to overhaul my online habits.

The Photoshopped wedding picture trend is showing no signs of slowing, and I, for one, am pretty happy about that. After seeing a wedding party being chased by a fearsome T-Rex and an engaged couple doing battle with a rogue zombie, it was only a matter of time before “Star Wars” entered the mix. Here we have newlyweds Mindy and John (along with their maid of honor and best man) facing down a group of AT-ATs making their way across Lake Michigan, courtesy of ridiculously talented photo editor Steven Kowalski. As I’ve always suspected, a lightsaber is the perfect wedding day accessory. [When Geeks Wed via Neatorama]
Not sure if you’ve caught wind of the barely mentioned, mostly overlooked news story that Duchess Kate is IN LABOR RIGHT NOW and the royal baby will be born ANY MINUTE. I couldn’t resist putting together a little collection of cute crown-themed products inspired by the birthday of the future king or queen of England. Because although I might be a commoner, I’m always down to add some royal bling to my jewelry box. Check out all the shopping details (and definitively non-royal price tags) after the jump!

If this were anyone else wearing a blazer, wide belt, slouchy plaid pants, and a bowler hat while wandering around New York City (and possibly doing jazz hands?) during an intense heat wave, I would be using the term “That’s a lot of look!” the same way I would use the phrase, “Oh honey, no.” But come on you guys, this is Diane Keaton, AKA Real Life Annie Hall. “That’s a lot of look” is her personal mantra, and I wouldn’t have her any other way.

When Hilary Duff isn’t striking semi-awkward poses at the pilates studio, she’s busy raising her adorable baby son Luca and generally looking fabulous at all times. After scrolling through a good 10-15 of her recent outfits and saying, “Gah! I want to be wearing that right now!” about literally every single one, I thought she deserved some fashion accolades in the form of our Street Style Star of the Week award. Click on the gallery above to check out some of my favorite of Hilary’s looks!
Saying Dita Von Teese looks flawless is about as surprising as saying Connie Britton is having a good hair day or Justin Bieber looks like he is in dire need of a diaper change, but whatever, just LOOK AT HER. I especially love the color palette and print on this dress, as well as the curve-hugging shape (natch) and dainty red straps. Like I said, flawless. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
