Surprise! Anne Hathaway and Adam Shulman tied the knot this weekend in Big Sur. The bride wore a Valentino dress and what appears to be a floral headband thingy made out of toilet paper. These photos are blurry though, so I’m sure it looks much better in person. Anyway, congrats to the happy couple. Whee! (Also, here’s what the pair look like when they’re not blurry, incase you forgot.)
Newflash: you don’t have to ride a motorcycle to wear a motorcycle jacket! Hell, you don’t have to go anywhere near a motorcycle. Regardless of your ideal form of recreation, motorcycle jackets add a suggestion of down-for-anything edge to even your most virtuous fall look. It’s just as hip when worn as a contrasting touch to a girly dress as it is when paired with skinny jeans and a white T. The shape’s most well-known iteration is in black leather (or pleather, if you please), but we’re really feeling the equally cool, if slightly less obvious, fabric versions, in a bevy of fall-ready textures and colors. Click through for our ten picks from the softer side of the spectrum (half are under $100!), and see if you can resist picking up just one…
Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick’s three-year-old twins Tabitha and Marion left their minders in the dust as they scooted around Manhattan this weekend. How cute are these two?! So cute I downloaded every single photo of them in their funny helmets.
The other day, I was walking behind a woman who had a really beautiful chain dangling down her back. At first, I thought it was just a necklace, but as I passed her, I realized it was actually a body harness — a pretty piece of body jewelry. Body jewelry had its moment a couple of years ago, but we think if you’re feeling a little bored with your accessories routine, you can spice things up with a cute pair of chain suspenders or a torso-hugging harness.
Cindy Gallup’s Make Love Not Porn movement has inspired us. For those of you who have never heard of her, Cindy Gallup is, for lack of a better term, a cougar. When, in her 40s, she began dating (and having sex with) much younger men, she discovered that their bedroom playbook was a little too heavily influenced by hardcore porn. During a 2009 TED talk, Gallup announced her plans to sexually re-educate, rehabilitate and reorient young people.
Her new website, MakeLoveNotPorn.com and video site MakeLoveNotPorn.tv (which hasn’t officially launched yet) will endeavor to teach the difference between the “porn world” and the “real world” by sparking discussion and showing videos of people having real-life sex. Not that she’s anti-porn (she claims to be a fan) she just wants everyone involved to know the difference. AMEN.
We’ve been having a similar experience in the bedroom and it’s time we ‘fess up. Guys, we’re onto you. We know when we’ve unwittingly been cast in your personal porno fantasy. Like a knockoff handbag, we can smell the inauthenticity a mile away. Most of the time, we’re too polite to say anything and we either choose to attempt to play the part … or not. I mean, sometimes we’re into it, too. But often, we feel the burden of your unrealistic expectations. So, we’re putting you on blast. It’s time to come up with some more original stuff.
