The Sugar Cube is a food cart in Portland that serves the most ridiculous and amazing sweets you’ll ever eat. Case in point: the Highway To Heaven cupcake, a chocolate cupcake injected with salted caramel, topped with bittersweet ganache, drizzled in coffee syrup and more caramel, and finished off with Ruffles potato chips. It’s not the easiest recipe you’ll ever make, but hey, getting to Heaven takes work. Check out Sugar Cube’s new book for even more crazy delicious treats! [Sweetapolita]

A couple weeks ago we told you about an amazing 14-year-old activist named Julia Bluhm who wrote a petition to Seventeen magazine asking them to publish one unaltered photo spread every month. Well, since then Julia’s been busy. Her petition has garnered over 74,000 signatures (yep, you read that right: 74,000), she scored a profile in The New York Times, and she recently held a mock photo shoot outside the Seventeen offices (that’s her in the middle)… Keep reading »

I love Tilda Swinton in all her strange, beautiful, androgynous, crazy-outfit-wearing glory, but I have to say I also like this version of Tilda: simple, streamlined, pretty. And I never thought I’d write this sentence, but Tilda’s outfit here is totally flattering and wearable–it would be a great choice for a hot summer day at the office. After the jump, we’ve got all the pieces to recreate her chic Cannes ensemble… Keep reading »
Women have complained for years about the lack of diversity in the modeling industry, and while we’ve seen some small improvements, models are still overwhelmingly very tall, very thin, very young, and very white. However, a recent study might provide companies with just the motivation they need to change their ways: women spend a lot more money when they see clothes on models and mannequins with body types similar to theirs. Here’s the lowdown… Keep reading »
“That’s all me up there. I don’t need a stunt ass. I would regret it for the rest of my life if I was in a male stripper movie and didn’t get up there and strip myself. At first it was scary as hell, but then it became like a drug and I couldn’t wait to do it again.”
-Matthew McConaughey tells the Advocate about his big striptease in the upcoming movie “Magic Mike.” Apparently the scene wasn’t even in the script initially, but thanks to Matthew’s enthusiasm, it because the dirtiest dance of the movie. “It had to be wonderfully filthy,” he says. [People]
That Chanel logo on your powder compact is great, but wouldn’t it be even better on your face? No need to worry–soon you’ll be able to buy Chanel logo stickers as part of the brand’s upcoming Collection Versailles. Chanel’s makeup director Peter Philips says the black velvet stickers are supposed to resemble Marie Antoinette’s famous “beauty spots;” we think they resemble, well, little Chanel logo stickers. So, what do you think of this idea? Will you be sporting Chanel face stickers any time soon? [Elle]
I’m usually not a big fan of white formal dresses, mostly because they can easily make you look like you missed a turn on the way to your wedding, but I must say Jessica Chastain strikes just the right tone in this beautifully streamlined white gown she wore on the Cannes red carpet. The cut is modern and flattering, the scooped neckline adds sexiness, and I’m obsessed with the pockets. What do you think of this look?
Every week, I get an email from Groupon Goods offering me a selection of deeply discounted products like earbuds and yoga mats and wine stoppers. I really need to unsubscribe from this email, because it’s turning me into one of those tragic women who goes into massive debt buying crap from the Home Shopping Network and is eventually buried in an avalanche of collectible teddy bears, but whatever. A few weeks ago my Groupon Goods email included a 3-pack of “Freedom Bras,” and I was instantly intrigued… Keep reading »
Kristen Stewart donned a fierce leather skirt and bustier for a sexually charged photo shoot in the June issue of Elle magazine. And who’s that hunk in the slouchy suit and suspenders she’s cuddling up to? Oh yeah, that’s also Kristen Stewart. I must say I’m pretty into her masculine swagger. Which Kristen do you prefer?
