The Oscars are this Sunday, and I don’t know about you, but I have been positively, absolutely salivating from the anticipation of finally finding out — no, not which film will win “Best Picture” — how Jared Leto will style his gorgeous head of cascading ombre man locks for the occasion. Having seen those strands in person, having touched them however briefly, I can confirm that his hair is as great as photos suggest. It’s glossy and has the perfect copper-y ends, but is also limp in that way that only man hair can be limp and sexy. SO ANNOYING. Basically, it’s perfect, down or up, though you know I ride hard for man buns.
Which is why I am positively verklempt to read what his ombre expert (duh, of course he has one) has planned for Academy Awards night. Given that Jared is practically a lock to take home the Best Supporting Actor trophy for his role in “Dallas Buyers Club,” the man formerly-but-forever-known-as Jordan Catalano has got to look like a winner.

Kristen Bell has awesome taste, though I think we all knew that already somewhere in our heart of hearts. In gearing up for the release of the “Veronica Mars” film, which I am oh so excited for, Kristen spoke with New York magazine about what inspires and influences her. She had some wise words to share about some of the finer things in life.
On “This American Life”:
Ira Glass proves that you don’t have to unroll the most salacious details immediately—as so much modern journalism does—or beg for your audience to listen. You can slowly captivate them.
Also, his voice is incredibly sexy, but that’s neither here nor there. Keep reading »
Frivolous celeb selfies might actually do some good in the world, if Dallas Pets Alive (DPA) has anything to say about it. The nonprofit aims to make no-kill shelters the norm in Dallas, TX, and to find homes for rescue dogs. Their oh-so-brilliant marketing geniuses have gotten into the habit of #muttbombing, or reposting celebs’ selfies (and normal folks’ pictures too!) on their Instagram account with a shelter dog photoshopped in. So far, stars like Kim Kardashian, Jimmy Fallon, and Miley Cyrus have been featured, and their Instagrams are that much better for it. Besides being hilarious, the project is also effective — about half of the dogs featured in the first few days of the campaign have been adopted. I’m rooting for a “Real Housewives” #muttbomb next! Check out more photos at the links! [Huffington Post; CultureMap; Dallas Pets Alive]
Were I to sit down and make a long list of dream life goals, there would likely be quite a few things on that list that I probably won’t get the opportunity to do. For example, “give an Oscar acceptance speech.” It’s not so much winning an Oscar as it is giving a thank you speech AT the Oscars that would be my goal. Still, shooting for the stars either way. Where am I going with this? Oh yeah. So another thing that is totally on my imaginary dream life goals list is “find an excuse to wear a sexy suit and rock the fuck out of it.” Not only is this an attainable goal, but Keri Russell is officially my muse. I still need to find an occasion to wear one — you know, besides on stage at the Oscars — but at least I know how I’d put it all together. I’m also totally obsessed with the way she has her hair just casually swooped over her shoulder. (Side note: what happened to her incredibly curly hair? Did she get that Brazilian straightening treatment? It’s very confusing and inquiring minds want to know.) Get the deets on this look, after the jump!

Going commando on the red carpet is nothing new. Celebs — hell, humanity in general — have been choosing to go out without underwear since, well, underwear was invented. Most skin-tight gowns just look better without anything underneath them. And for as long as celebs have been going commando, there have been paparazzi waiting on bended knee in front of limo doors, ready to catch a brief moment of flashing vag on camera.
But this here slideshow depicts something else entirely — the growing popularity of dresses so sheer and/or high cut that going commando is a requirement and the possibility of indecent exposure is not only likely but practically encouraged. Yes, like the underboob and sideboob and butt cleave and sidebutt before it, showing off your mons pubis — that is, the upper part of the vulva below the naval — is the hot, new, random, SEXY RED CARPET TREND. Click through to see just a few somewhat recent examples…
Famous parents are finally saying enough is enough when it comes to creepy paparazzi photos of their kids, and People has responded to the request for a change of policy with what is seemingly the most wishy-washy, off-target commentary they could come up with.
The magazine has announced that they will only publish photos of celebrity kids that their parents, in theory, agree to, such as at red carpet events. They claim they will no longer be using paparazzi photos of children, except for occasional “rare exceptions” (read: whenever they feel like it).
Is this response really any better than the magazine just ignoring the issue altogether and shamelessly continuing to fill their pages with Suri Cruise pictures like they always have? Keep reading »
Who is your role model and why?
The American writer Betty Friedan — she fought for gender equality and wrote the great book “The Feminine Mystique” which sparked the beginning of a second-wave feminism.
So do you consider yourself a feminist?
Sure. I believe in equal rights for men and women.
Color me just a little surprised at this one: Leighton Meester is a feminist and actually cites second-wave feminist activist Betty Friedan as her role model. Friedan was the author of The Feminine Mystique, a 1963 book that that captured the unhappy, stilted lives that middle-class, mostly white women felt after marriage and children, feeling as if there weren’t other opportunities open to them. Friedan was initially prompted to write after interviewing her former Smith College classmates, when she learned how unhappy these well-educated women were as suburban housewives. The book catalyzed many women to join the feminist movement and led to an increased awareness to the restriction of expected gender roles in American society. Keep reading »
“Late Night With Seth Meyers” debuted last night with the perfect first guest — Amy Poehler, Seth Meyers’ one-time “Weekend Update” cohost on “Saturday Night Live.” These two go waaaaay back — just look at them as wee comedy babes! Given that Amy confirms that she and Seth “could talk all day,” might I suggest that she be a regular guest on the show, you know, maybe even a part-time cohost? Not that Seth couldn’t handle the job himself, but late night needs more women and these two have such a fantastic rapport. Just something to consider, NBC. No pressure.
