So, i flew from NYC to San Jose, CA last night (for the gymnastics Olympics trials, woot!), arriving at my hotel after midnight PST. That means I didn’t get to bed until after 3 a.m. EST. I tossed and turned and then woke up to do my usual East Coast radio gig at, grr, 5:30 a.m. PST. Basically, I got around four hours of sleep and am totally out of it. Or I wasssss until I turned on “The Today Show” to discover Channing Tatum — star of the Most Important Movie About Male Strippers Ever, “Magic Mike” — showing off his sexy dance moves (along with co-star Joe Manganiello).

Elizabeth Banks brought a little Effie Trinket flamboyancy to her non-”Hunger Games” life yesterday, donning this amazing zig-zag print dress with colorblocked platform pumps. It’s a lot of look, but thanks to her super-simple makeup, chic haircut, and lack of accessories, it totally works. Also can we talk about this woman’s skin for a second?

Here are six things I’m most looking forward to about “Magic Mike.” (With bonus GIFs after the jump!) Keep reading »
And just when I thought I looked pretty good today, I fell privy to a gallery of today’s top models (like Constance Jablonski, shown), minus the layers of makeup and endless accoutrements necessary to make them runway-ready. It’s just them, as they are, every day. Can you imagine, these girls get to walk around with their faces? I can’t go on. [Telegraph]
