Has anyone else noticed that there are a lot of little ginger babies popping up in Hollywood and from non-ginger parents? There’s Will Arnett and Amy Poehler’s son Abel. And Natalie Portman’s son Aleph. And, pictured here, Haven Warren, daughter to Jessica Alba and Cash Warren. I am such a sucker from strawberry strands and a Big, Serious Baby expression.

One of the more … dramatic Summer Olympic events, in my opinion, is synchronized swimming. There’s something so weird and flamboyant about it. Just look at the ferocious enthusiasm on the faces of Austrian duo Nadine Brandl and Livia Lang, who competed in the Women’s Duets Synchronised Swimming Free Routine Preliminary today. Also, what kind of waterproof makeup are they using? That shit is staying put. Click through to see more fabulously over the top synchronized swimmers doing their thing…
I was commenting on how packaged pregnancy tests resemble fruit roll ups when my mother told me scientists once injected bunnies with a woman’s urine to determine whether or not she was pregnant.
“A rabbit?” I was a little stunned by the idea of poor, floppy-eared, innocent rabbits getting shot up with pee. “Oh yeah!” My mother said nodding. “People used to say, well, the rabbit died. And everyone would know she was pregnant.”
An episode of “M*A*S*H” even made reference to the practice when Hot Lips thought she might be pregnant and the only available test was via Radar’s unsuspecting pet rabbit Fluffy.
This method seemed so bizarre to me, that I was compelled to learn more about the history of pregnancy tests. Click on to see what kind of crazy stuff I discovered.
When it comes to sunglasses, we say the bigger the better. Why? Let us count the ways: a pair of large frame sunglasses will make you look and feel like a movie star, add interest to a basic outfit, and distract from that chin zit that just won’t quit. Looking for a pair that will make a statement? Not to worry–we rounded up 10 bold specs, and here’s the best part: they’re all $25 or less. Click through to check ‘em out!
I’ve spent the last few days in London, soaking up all the city and all the 2012 Summer Olympics has to offer. From a boat tour of London on the Thames, to amazing seats at the gymnastics competition, this has been the trip of a lifetime!

Artist Rodolfo Loaiza’s new show, “Disasterland,” features colorful paintings that throw out traditional Disney narratives and re-imagine them in ways that more accurately reflect the world we live in. For example, “heterosexual happy endings have been discarded; outdated,” and some popular heroes, princesses, and villains have been recast as same-sex lovers. Hercules and Aladdin make a gorgeous couple, don’t you think? Click on the gallery to see a few more, including Belle, Jasmine, and Ursula! [Bust]
Ryan Gosling is back in New York! No wonder it’s so hot out. If anyone needs me, I’ll just be doing laps around the East Village.
Let’s face it: It’s a whole lot easier to get leopard print wrong than it is to get it right. We’re surrounded (surrounded!) by people who are getting it all wrong — leopard that’s too tight, too trashy or just plain uggos. So that’s why I’ve searched high and low to find several leopard printed pieces that are actually pretty cool. The rule is, when you’re wearing a pattern that’s as bold as leopard, try pairing it with more demure accessories, and balance out the wild print with a classic shape. And with those words of wisdom, it’s off to the leopard looks …
There’s something different about Olympic diver — representing Team Mexico — Ivan Garcia: he has not waxed his body hair, something most competitive athletes (in diving, swimming and gymnastics in particular) do because hair causes drag and can slow down your time. He’s already won a silver medal at the London Olympics, so his body hair doesn’t seem to be impeding his ability to compete at the top of his game. Another part of his body that Ivan hasn’t touched? That unibrow, which garners him a much coveted spot in our Unibrow Hall of Fame. Congrats, Ivan! [Buzzfeed]
I’ve always been shocked by the statistic that 93 percent of American women take their husband’s last name. But there’s one group that’s overly represented in the seven percent who don’t—celebrities. It makes sense because, once you get to the point where you’re famous, your name is a brand. It’s the way people have, and most likely will continue to, see you. Changing it is just confusing. After all, what would we make of Reese Toth? Or Drew Kopelman?
That’s why it comes as sort of surprise that Lily Allen, who has released two albums that went Gold in the U.S. and triple platinum in the UK, has not only legally changed her name following her marriage to Sam Cooper, but professionally as well. Should she ever release a third record (please, Lily, won’t you?), it’ll be under the name Lily Rose Cooper. When your name is integral to your brand as an entertainer, a move like this mid-career seems risky to me. I mean, I really don’t think I’ll be changing my professional name to Amelia Gosling, you know? [Rolling Stone]
Anyway, keep clicking for other stars who changed their names post-marriage.
