As a child of the ’90s, I have an intrinsic emotional association with Mandy Moore. I vividly recall listening to her completely inane songs on my Walkman waiting for my mom to pick me up from karate (not an isolated incident, she was always late to pick me up from karate). Mandy has done a lot of growing up since she was last in the spotlight, and since I was last at karate, and I guess she’s kind of awesome now? It’s evident that her “Cry” days are long gone: she appeared in a couple of rom-coms, got married to Ryan Adams (who I, as a longtime Jeff Tweedy fan, do not enjoy, but whatever), voiced Rapunzel in “Tangled,” and is now working on a brand-new album that will (presumably) be a drastic departure from the vaguely nauseating tracks of yore.
I’m willing to give Mandy another chance, especially since she’s been looking all kinds of stylish at New York Fashion Week! If that doesn’t say comeback, then I don’t know what does. I’m “Crush”-ing hard on this look in particular: it’s a subtle segue into the dark, dramatic beauty trends on the forecast, but it’s still sweet and pretty enough to wear through the interim. If you’re ready to jump the gun on fall beauty, but aren’t quite prepared to delve into dark aubergine shades, cop Mandy’s look right now! Keep reading »
We love you, Winona, and you’re killing it in that Dolce & Gabbana dress, even though it’s mid-length and you’re like, five foot two. You don’t have to look so freaked out, girlfriend!
“I’m doing a duet record and I’m here to ask Honey Boo Boo Child to be my duet partner … She is real, she is lovely, she’s funny … She doesn’t take herself seriously. The whole family doesn’t take themselves seriously. It’s really just good fun. I love anybody who dances to the beat of a different drummer .. She is the queen. She understands what drag is. That’s what pageants are.”
– RuPaul Charles‘ official duet proposal to Alana Thompson aka Honey Boo Boo Child. Wait, my idol RuPaul would like to record a duet with my other idol, Honey Boo Boo? I need to process this bit of information. When the very short list of celebrities that I worship end up in one news headline together, I feel very overwhelmed. Obviously this needs to happen. This must happen. It MUST. Song titles are running though my head: “Glitzy Made Me Do It,” “A Dollar Makes Her Holler,” “Pageant Girl,” “Crown Chaser,” “Jealous of My Flipper,” “Shh! It’s A Wig,” “Don’t Step On My Forklift Foot.” I shall keep you posted. [E! Online]
