Vogue Italia‘s latest cover? So. Gorgeous. I hate to beat a dead horse, but why the hell are these models called “plus size“? Tara Lynn, Candice Huffine and Robyn Lawley just look like voluptuous bombshells to me.

Woo hoo! A celebrity has decided to do an homage to an actress of yesteryear, and it is not Marilyn Monroe. In the newest issue of W, photographer Tim Walker snapped Scarlett Johansson done up as Marlene Dietrich, complete with penciled-in eyebrows. Oh, and she dressed up as Buster Keaton and Elvis too. You can see the Buster photos here, though sadly the Elvis ones will never reach our eyes because, as Scarlett says, they “didn’t look appealing.” Keep reading »
Ahhhhh, what a wonderful magazine cover. When I walked to the newsstand today and saw Kyle Chandler’s face staring at me with his gruff, signature, “don’t you know how to throw a football” look, I felt instantly compelled to buy the June issue of Men’s Journal even though, well, I’m not the target audience. Kyle, who stars in “Friday Night Lights” isn’t the type of actor you see on magazine covers often, so I’m pumped that Men’s Journal decided to go with him. After the jump, five reasons this makes me happy. Keep reading »
What a coincidink. Just as we find out that Kris Humphries popped the question to Kim Kardashian amidst mini-horses doused in glitter, the New Jersey Nets star also makes an appearance in GQ modeling swim trunks. And man, does he do a good job of it. Kris is my favorite type of hot—sweet, baby face up top with a hot body below. And since I couldn’t pick my favorite photo, there’s one more after the jump. Enjoy. Keep reading »
“The long distance kind of petered us out. When you date someone else who’s in the industry, someone has to make the sacrifices. And if no one’s willing to, then you just have to be friends.”
—January Jones is on the cover of the June issue of Allure, and inside the magazine talks about why her relationship with Jason Sudeikis didn’t work out. We say big boo to that. We were rooting for those two. [Allure]
Then again, January says dating someone out of the industry has complications, too. Her thought on that after the jump. Keep reading »
What’s worse than offensive articles, like “The Top 10 Hottest Female Sex Offenders” — that are ‘just kidding’?
Offensive articles, like “Why Are Black Women Less Physically Attractive Than Other Women?,” published in reputable (?) magazines like Psychology Today that are serious.
Yesterday, Psychology Today pulled an article it posted online by evolutionary psychologist Satoshi Kanzawa, which sought to explain why black women are considered “unattractive” based on a study of the attractiveness of different races. (However, you can still read the article and see the illustrated graphs here.) Satoshi Kanzawa referenced a study in which white, Asian and Native American women were rated “attractive,” while blacks were markedly not, and men of all races were rated equally “unattractive.” Keep reading »
Katy Perry posed for Annie Liebovitz on the June cover of Vanity Fair and I must admit I’m not used to seeing her in such a “normal” look. Sedate makeup? (For her.) Check. Sedate outfit? (For her.) Check. Eyebrow-raising quotes about Planned Parenthood, her evangelical parents, and her boobs? Ah, yes, those are right inside. [Vanity Fair] Keep reading »
In Allure‘s Naked Truth feature—which I swear Harper’s Bazaar does, too?—they ask celebrities to strip down for a nude photo shoot and talk about how they feel about their bodies. In the past, the magazine has gotten Padma Lakshmi, Eliza Dushku, Chelsea Handler, and Kara DioGuardi to pose. This year’s spread has some fun choices—Keri Hilson, Bridget Moynahan, and Kaley Cuoco. But the one getting the most attention is Ashley Tisdale of “Hellcats.” Why? Probably because we think of her as underage, thanks to “High School Musical,” when she’s actually 25. And because her “HSM” co-star Vanessa Hudgens is trying to get us to forget about her less artistic nude pics. Keep reading »
It’s totally cool that Lea Michele, Dianna Agron and Amber Riley are all sharing the May 2011 cover of Marie Claire and getting their own separate individual covers — for one because it annoys me when Lea Michele hogs all the buzz from “Glee,” but because mainstream women’s mags are not exactly known for putting African-American women on the cover. So, yay, for that beautiful Amber Riley cover. However! While I was reading the copy on the different covers, I noticed something wack. Lea and Dianna’s cover lines both read “on the rumors! gossip! drama!”, but Amber’s cover lines are entirely different: “I show girls how to be comfortable with their bodies.” Huh? Don’t get me wrong — I think it’s awesome that Amber Riley gets a cover and that she’s a role model for curvaceous women and girls of all backgrounds. I just wonder why Marie Claire felt it necessary to point out her body alone. [Oh No They Didn't!] Keep reading »
In December, I wrote about stewardesses for Mexicana Airlines who funded a sexy calendar of themselves in order to raise money for the tanking airline. The sexy calenders sold for $12 a pop and enjoyed multiple printings. Now the flight attendants are appearing on the cover of Playboy Mexico in getups that leave little to the imagination about where they store those extra bags of airline peanuts.
