Maria Sharapova was on hand to unveil a prototype of a dress that lights up when the wearer’s cell phone or smartphone rings. The dress was designed by British fashion student Georgie Davies for a school project and partnership with Sony Ericsson aimed at incorporating new technology into fashion. Davies said the dress was designed to connect to the wearer’s phone via Bluetooth technology. “When you’re in a pub or a bar, you can never, ever hear your phone,” Davies told Reuters. The good thing is this dress is actually wearable and not at all overly Sci-Fi-looking. The dress is knee-length, white, short-sleeved, and is embellished along one side with translucent white scales (think square paillettes) that move and light up. See more photos here. I’d wear it. Would you? Keep reading »
Lauren Conrad was on “The View” this morning to promote her “novel,” L.A. Candy (we’re going to a “reading” tonight!). The interview was pretty awkward and the ladies spent about, oh, six seconds discussing the book, after they peppered L.C. with questions about Heidi and Spencer. The greatest revelation? You know that little “apology” Spencer delivered to Lauren, over the phone, in order to get her to come to the wedding? Never happened. See the clip above… Keep reading »
When I watched this, I was pretty impressed with Obama’s fast hands and ninja-like focus. When a fly buzzes around my head there’s usually nothing I can do, but Obama smacked that little sucker dead. PETA, the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, however, were not pleased. This crazy organization said they wished he had not killed the bug. They’re sending him a Katcha Bug Humane Bug Catcher, which allows people to trap a bug inside and release it later. Puhleeeze! PETA needs to realize that if they continue to get upset about things like killing flies NO ONE is going to take them seriously. Wait, too late. [AP]

Once would have been more than enough.
A Russian woman, known only as “Natalia K,” allegedly underwent six hymenoplasties to “restore her virginity” for her husband. Keep reading »
We hear from Star magazine that you’re trying to sell some tapes, which show Danielle Staub giving you your “routine blow job,” as Teresa once eloquently phrased it. Some kind advice: Don’t do it. For the sake of our eyes not running away from their sockets, if nothing else. While we understand that you’re upset because you had to spend thousands of dollars on Danielle (even though she outright says that she only dates men for their money), you don’t really need to make this quick buck. Everyone totally thought you were gross for getting fellatio from her, but then we totally loved when you were holding in your laughs during the break-up scene, so why not quit while you’re ahead? Destroy the videos, save your reputation (or what’s left of it), and just continue on down the path of life, wearing your Ed Hardy hats that almost cover your premature bald spot. K?

Everyone has been talking about Minx Nails lately. The nail art was featured in a recent issue of Vogue and on “Today” this morning, but I have to say these “news” outlets are a little behind. The Frisky gave you the dish on Minx back in October, and even interviewed manicurist, Lisa Logan, who was responsible for Beyonce and Solange’s Obama nails that were popular during the presidential campaign.
Last week, I had the pleasure of getting my nails dipped in gold. OK, not really, but I got close. I had Minx Nails applied in gold on eight fingers and gold cheetah on two fingers. It was kind of weird to have a “dry manicure.” I had trouble remembering that my nails weren’t wet, even though I just had them done. I kept the Minx Nails on for a few days and found myself admiring them quite often. However, I don’t think they’ll replace my normal manicure — they’re more for special occasions. The pedicures, however, I could get behind. A Minx pedicure supposedly lasts three times as long as the manicure. Keep reading »
Groucho Marx once famously quipped “I don’t care to belong to a club that would have me as a member.” I sort of feel the same way about online dating sites. There has got to be a better way to meet people, people. Sadly, mental telepathy does not work. Unless you know what I was just thinking, in which case, e-mail me.
I’ve recently begun… researching popular dating sites. Not because I need a date. Ho, no, no, no. I don’t need a date. I’m up to my man boobs in hot lady action. There’s an 85% chance of boobs forecast in my love life. I am the Mayor of Vagtown. No, this research is for you, for all of you. It’s a testament to my generosity of spirit I waded through these interweb love sewers in order to impart some sort of wisdom. Here’s the wisdom: dating sites blow. Keep reading »
We’re not so sure that “Gossip Girl” hunksicle Chace Crawford deserves to be People Magazine’s #1 hottest bachelor. But we were kinda entertained by some of the thoughts he shared in the interview—like that he had his first kiss in the firth grade, that he talks to his parents everyday, and that he likes a girl who can beat him at beer pong. Chace goes on to describe his perfect date. After the jump, we weigh in on it, as well as on dream dates described by Robert Pattinson and Matthew McConaughey. [People] Keep reading »
Imagine your ideal vacay. Now, quick, what are you doing? How do you feel? What does your room look like? If you’re anything like me, vacation means design-savvy hotel, great food, lots of post-dinner stuffed-to-the-gills walks and nice weather. For you it may entail hiking the Appalachian Trail in Asheville, or standing atop Peak 9 in Breckenridge on a cold, sunny morning. Or maybe it’s just heading down to the white-sand beach at 9 a.m. and not leaving until diner. For all those people out there that travel based on emotion and how a place feels and makes them feel, listen up: You can now book a hotel by surveying those thoughts. Hotels.com now provides a search website that appeals to the senses—it’s called, not so cleverly, “The Visualiser.“ (One word on it though: It’s still in try-out format and was made to be test-driven in the UK, so the hotel prices are in pounds, but you get the idea anyways!)

Beth Ditto: lead singer of The Gossip, naked Love cover girl and Karl Lagerfeld bestie is coming out with a new fashion line. And not just any old line, but a plus-sized line! Evens, a British plus size store, disagreed with our own Lily and British GQ and let Ditto inject her pop-punk aesthetic into the line, due out July 9. It’s heavy on the sequins, sparkle and 80′s feel—much like Ditto’s personal style. Check it out the full collection here—and FYI, kids: Evans ships to the little ole U.S.A. Keep reading »
