For some reason, putting on a striped cardigan will put you in a good mood. I think it has something to do with the fact that a striped cardigan gives off a more casual vibe than a solid one, thereby reminding you of the weekend. Don’t you just love the power of association? Keep reading »

When I was a child, two-finger, three-finger and four-finger rings were the height of fashion. What can I say? I grew up in the Bronx when hip-hop was definitely making its mark on fashion. My friends and I would make rings out of dollar bills and tape them together to create multi-finger rings. Now that Lauren Conrad was spotted wearing a two-finger name ring, designers have taken notice of this trend. Thankfully, all the rings aren’t iced out. Some are actually rather sophisticated and simple. And then others are truly playful and trendy. I wouldn’t advise spending a lot on one of these, unless you DIE for it like Rachel Zoe.

Unless if you’re in training to become a Vegas showgirl, it’s probably not wise to make feathers your fashion staple. Adding some subtle plumage to your Fall look, however, will have you just ahead of the trend curve. These attention-grabbing accessories should have you flying high in fashion. Keep reading »
Back when I was in elementary school, I got to pick out a new lunch box and book bag at the end of summer in preparation for the school year. I miss starting fresh every fall, so maybe I should start buying myself a new bag every fall to continue the tradition in a more adult way. Since we’re all falling on hard times with the craziness on Wall Street, I think I’ll pick one of these — not one of them is over $100. Keep reading »
Scarlett Johansson, 23, and Ryan Reynolds, 31, were hitched in a ceremony held outside Vancouver, B.C., over the weekend. This morning, we got to talking about how many female celebrities had married at a young age, and we were rather shocked at the number of young celebrity brides. Check out the slideshow after the jump, and let us know in the comments if you think Scarlett and Ryan have a chance at forever. Keep reading »
The other day I asked Catherine, “Do you think I should dye my hair bright red like Joan Holloway on “Mad Men”?” Catherine said, “No” as if the idea was out of the question. I suppose she’s right. I’d need to have the milky white skin that actress Christina Hendricks is blessed with. An added bonus would be to be blessed with this woman’s Botticelli-esque figure, but that’s just dreamin’. Anyway, after the jump, some of Hendrick’s most glorious looks — a little more modern than Holloway’s, of course, but drool-worthy nonetheless. Keep reading »
As much as I love Don Draper and Dexter and Hank Moody, I’m always happy to have some new eye candy to gaze upon during my nightly TV ritual. The Fall TV schedule brings a plethora of new faces to the small screen on brand spankin’ new shows that either rule for more than just the hotness (like Fox’s “Fringe”) or are just worth a quick glance (um, “Knight Rider”). After the jump, 10 new-to-TV actors that you won’t want to miss. Keep reading »
For the last few weeks, and up until this Sunday, it’s been a big time for TV addicts — so many shows are back! And with them comes the hot dudes that make the shows worth watching (well, in addition to awesome stories, great acting, etcetera). After the jump, 10 TV actors we’re so psyched to have back in our lives, including John Krasinski (“The Office” returns tomorrow night!) and Gale Harold, a new addition to “Desperate Housewives” (premiering this Sunday) whom we’ve loved since “Queer As Folk”.

When we picked up Playboy, (hey, we read it for the articles!) we were pleasantly surprised by Too Hot To Handel- a piece on the lovely ladies of classical music. Sure, when you think of orchestras, old dudes with white wigs might come to mind. However, there are a bunch of young guys giving the aging art form an earful and and eyeful! Alas, nothing is sexier than a man who is well trained and good with his hands. We want to make beautiful music together with these modern Mozart’s!
Yevgeny Sudbin This sexy piano player makes us see why people misunderstand the pronunciation of pianist.
Mason Bates Master composer Bates likes to push all the right buttons. Renown for melding live classical instruments with electronic music, he has rocked dance floors in San Francisco and debuted compositions Carnegie Hall, but he has never performed in a traditional monkey suit. Mason definitely makes us want to slip into something more comfortable and join him.
