Krysten Ritter always gets stuck playing the quirky friend in movies like “Confessions of a Shopaholic” and “She’s Out of My League,” and I guess it’s a great thing that now she’s got the lead role in this new series, “Don’t Trust the B— in Apartment 23.” But geez, could this show have a worse name/premise? Anyway, it’s a shame, because Krysten always struck me as pretty cool — like someone you’d be friends with in an alternate universe. And she’s got a great fashion sense, too. Like, take this Jenni Kayne maxi-dress she wore to the premiere of her new film “Life Happens.” (And check out the red shoes!) Cute, cool and super laid-back. Just like we imagine Krysten probably is.
Browsing through celebrity photos this morning I came across this picture of Brooklyn Decker at the “Battleship” premiere in Tokyo, and my jaw dropped at that gravity-defying bodice (by “bodice” I mean “piece of fabric”). At first glance I thought the whole thing was held up with copious amounts of fashion tape or simply by the grace of God. Upon closer inspection it looks like there is a teeny tiny transparent strap holding it in place, but still, this dress is a triumph of engineering.
We never pegged Lauren Conrad as a side-boob exhibitionist, but here she is posing topless on the May 2012 cover of Glamour for the “Swimsuit Issue.” Wait, the swimsuit issue? Fifty percent of her swimsuit is missing! Gah, no one will be complaining . [Us Weekly]
I should probably be upfront and just make it clear from the get-go that I am not a Sarah Palin fan. But I watched her hosting gig on “The Today Show” anyway this morning, and found it to be about a 6 out of 10 on the pain scale. Still droppin’ her Gs? Check! Still crowing about the “lamestream media” (on a “lamestream media” show an hour before co-hosting that same “lamestream media” show)? Check! But it was not all bad. I found it refreshing that, during a discussion about Jessica Simpson’s pregnancy weight gain, Palin was the only person on the panel — which included “Today”‘s resident medical expert and that misogynist blowhard Donny Deutsch — that said how much weight a pregnant woman gains is none of our gosh darn business.
Still, the most cringe-worthy, and therefore most entertaining moment for me was when Palin started talkin’ family values with newly pregnant Tori Spelling. (Spelling, for the record, has an infant and two other children; she joked that her latest pregnancy is proof that you can conceive while breastfeeding.) Palin literally kind of fawned over her, praising her for “living life vibrantly” — whatever that means — and serving as a “good inspiration for others.” Anyway, it was an odd pairing.
