Beyonce wears one onstage. So does Miley Cyrus, Lady Gaga, and Madonna. Ebay has sold 1,900 of them in the past three months. Vintage boutiques are marking up their prices like mad. What are they? Corsets, of course! The Spanx of the Victorian era is back in a big way, and their recent popularity has the fashion industry and historians searching for answers. Why is everyone suddenly clamoring for a corset of their very own? After all, they’re not exactly comfortable or practical. The BBC’s Vanessa Barford tackled this question in a fascinating article about the history of the corset, and it turns out that there are quite a few factors contributing to the current trend… Keep reading »

Meet The Winner Of Israel’s Plus-Size Beauty Pageant

This beautiful woman is 22-year-old Vered Fisher, a member of the intelligence unit of the Israeli army who was crowned “Miss Large” after beating out 15 other contestants in a plus-size pageant. As weirded out as I am about beauty pageants in general, and as much as I wish there didn’t have to be a distinction between “large” beauty and mainstream beauty, it’s always refreshing to see more body diversity in areas that have normally been off-limits to larger women. Plus, I love Fisher’s message to other plus size women: “You are pretty as you are and you can succeed as you are.” [BuzzFeed]

The Daily Ovulation: Pregnant Sarah Michelle Gellar + Two Tiny Ballerinas

I would not be that surprised if I found out this photo was engineered by an evil scientist to make our hearts explode from cuteness. I mean seriously, it’s got Sarah Michelle Gellar’s round belly, her adorable daughter Charlotte Prinze (left) wearing a ballerina outfit, another adorable toddler ballerina for good measure, and even a teeny tiny pair of pink glitter TOMS (check out Charlotte’s feet!). Yep, we’re definitely dead. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]

A few nights ago, I watched a giant spider slowly creep across my bedroom wall, leering at me with eight beady eyes. I held my breath as its hairy legs traversed framed pictures, approaching me with increasing speed until it finally leapt off the wall and landed in my hair. I screamed and madly raked my hands through my hair, trying to get it off me. When it wouldn’t budge, I ran across the room in a panic, trying anything to untangle it from my hair, but suddenly there were more of them: little spiders streaming onto my forehead and lowering down into my eyes.

I woke up on the floor of my closet, hyperventilating, with a nasty scrape on my arm from where I had bumped into my dresser. This was the worst nightmare I’ve had lately, but it definitely wasn’t the only one. In fact, I haven’t gotten much sleep at all the past couple weeks… Keep reading »

My boyfriend Nick is an old man trapped in a 26-year-old’s body. He’s usually in his pajama pants by 7:30 p.m., it’s not uncommon for him to use the phrase “Why is everyone in such a hurry?” while driving, and his knowledge of pop culture is mostly limited to the “House Party” trilogy. This is why I was shocked when “Call Me Maybe,” the ridiculously catchy song by Carly Rae Jepsen, came on the radio the other day and Nick started listing off some interesting facts about the song and its singer. Too bad none of them were even close to being true. I have no idea where he gets his information, but in any case, here are five things my boyfriend genuinely believes to be true about Carly Rae Jepsen… Keep reading »

Remember When Julia Stiles Played A Streetwise Hacker On “Ghostwriter”?

"Can you jam with the console cowboys in cyberspace?"

Lucky for us, the internet remembers. What’s the internet, you ask? Well, according to Julia Stiles’ character in this clip from a 1993 “Ghostwriter” episode, “It’s a world where you’re judged by what you say and think, not by what you look like, a world where curiosity and imagination equals power.” God, I miss the ’90s.

First Look: Angelina Jolie Is A Magnificent Maleficent

Here’s our first glimpse of Angelina Jolie in her upcoming role as Maleficent (the evil queen from “Sleeping Beauty,” in case you need a Disney movie refresher). “Maleficent,” which will hit theaters in 2014, promises to flesh out the backstory of this legendary villain, and judging from this picture, Angelina is creepy perfection in the lead role.

Good Idea, Or Best Idea?

Logan, Utah boasts a 35-foot cliff that local college students love to dive off of into the pristine water below. Recently, though, these innovative youths had a major epiphany: rigging a 40-foot slip ‘n slide up to the edge would probably make the experience, in their words, “a lot funner.” As sketchy as it sounds, they’re totally right–click on the video to see the results!
