The 15th Annual Costume Designers Guild Awards was held on Tuesday, and a buttload of celebs came out to support their favorite costume designers. You’d think celebs would step it up a notch to show off their sartorial chops, but … well … not so much. The red carpet was a bit of a let down, to be honest. Let’s go to the pics, shall we?
Well, I have some bad news. Despite the fact that we are women and therefore hungry for male attention, none of us wore yoga pants to work today. Sorry. Click on to see what we are wearing today…
In shocking news to everyone, as a fetus you were your mother’s largest organ! Or at least that’s what Alabama State Representative Mary Sue McClurkin (R) is now claiming.
The bill she introduced this week requires a series of demanding requirements of abortion clinics who perform this “big surgery.” According to the Huffington Post, these regulations could potentially close the sparse five remaining abortion clinics in Alabama. The Montgomery Advertiser reports that the bill:
“Would require physicians at abortion clinics to have admitting privileges at local hospitals; require clinics to follow ambulatory clinic building codes and make it a felony — punishable by up to 10 years in prison — for a nurse, nurse practitioner or physician’s assistant to dispense abortion-inducing medications”
Rep. McClurkin’s reasoning for such harsh new regulations: the removal of an organ is a serious surgery, and by her estimation a child is an organ. Rep. McClurkin’s assertion is ridiculous for so many reasons.

Recognize this hottie and his incredible bone structure and penetrating gaze? It’s Mr. Pamuk from “Downton Abbey,” the Turkish diplomat that died while taking Lady Mary’s virginity! Mr. Pamuk, I mean Theo James, it’s sooooo good to see you again. Someone finally had the good sense to put gorgeous Brit Theo back on the small screen — he’ll be starring in the new CBS series “Golden Boy” premiering next Tuesday at 10 p.m. Theo plays Walter William Clark Jr. on his impressive rise to become the youngest police commissioner in New York City’s history. As it’s a starring role, there is no risk that Theo will expire mid-coitus, thank god. Re-familiarize yourself with Theo’s studliness in the gallery above. I feel faint.
I’ll tell you what I wasn’t hoping to see when I logged onto my computer yesterday: Scott Baio taking a bubble bath. He tweeted this picture of himself during tub time saying “Is anyone casting for a new Alfalfa? @NickelodeonTV.”
I only could have felt more uncomfortable if there were peen float and rubber duckies. Any positive feelings that remained from the “Charles in Charge” days are now gone. Charles has lost control. How do we let celebs know that there are some moments that should not be shared with the world? Whether it be bubble baths, toilet business or eyebrow waxing, these famous dudes made us want to push the untweet button. [Seriously OMG]
For years now, the sidewalks outside of fashion week have been as heavily documented and critiqued as the clothes up on the runway. There’s a veritable industry now, of fashion bloggers, online personalities and charming crazies who now operate front and center when it comes to fashion week. And why not? Style trickles up as much as it trickles down, with designers pulling looks and inspiration from what they see around the city.
But not everybody’s happy about it. Take fashion writer Susie Menkes, who in this past week’s T magazine, railed against the ubiquitousness of the street scene. “There is a genuine difference between the stylish and the showoffs,” she notes, alluding that there are far more of the latter than the former in fashion right now. The actual fashion shows almost seem beside the point. “There is something ridiculous about the self-aggrandizement of some online arbiters who go against the mantra that I was taught in my earlier days as a fashion journalist. ‘It isn’t good because you like it; you like it because it’s good.’” Amen to that, but still, isn’t it fun to see what everyone’s preened themselves into now?
