“How To Lose Your Virginity,” The Documentary

Oooh, cool: filmmaker Therese Shechter is making a documentary about all things virginal, aptly called “How To Lose Your Virginity.” Shechter posted a trailer online and it looks like “How To Lose Your Virginity” covers virginity pledges, the purity ring iPhone app, those creepy “purity balls,” and even Miley Cyrus’ alleged abstinence pledge. Please tell us Kevin Jonas’ glorious princess wedding / inaugural cherry-popping will be featured prominently, too? Keep reading »

Sure, New Year’s Eve is all about ringing in a brand new era with champagne bubbles, but since it’s winter, why not try these hot beverages to switch up the status quo?

Flaming Brandy Punch

INGREDIENTS
1 1/4 cups water
1 1/4 cups (packed) dark brown sugar
2 cinnamon sticks, broken in half
4 whole cloves
1 4-inch-long strip orange peel
2 750-ml bottles dry red wine
1 cup fresh orange juice
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
4 cups brandy
1 whole nutmeg

Mix in orange juice and lemon juice. Holding ladle over punch bowl, fill ladle with brandy; carefully ignite. Pour into punch bowl and allow flame to burn out. Mix in remaining brandy. Grate some nutmeg over punch.

Ooh, Snap: Did Target Copy Itself?

Up top there, a belt (a kind of ugly one at that) from the Rodarte Target collection. Down below, a Sonia Kashuk duffle bag, also manufactured by Target. Hmm … those two look pretty gosh-darn similar in terms of material. Remarked the Racked reporter, who posted the pics, the Kashuk bag “in terms of how the material looks and feels, [is] a dead ringer for the Rodarte belt.” BTW, the reporter also mentioned how crappy the fabric is too. So does that mean that Target is recycling leftover stock? Here’s an interesting ethical question: Does that take something away from the design or even point to self-plagiarism? What about two different high-profile designers creating dresses from the same fabric because they shop at the same trimmings store?

What do you think: A mistake on Target/Rodarte’s part or big whoop, who cares? [Racked] Keep reading »

Quotable: Taylor Momsen Will Be Your Old, “Angsty” Landlady Someday

“I am angsty. I’ll be angsty until I’m 80 years old. I think that keeps things fresh. But I always think angst is such a derogatory word toward teenagers. It just means you’re figuring s**t out, and I don’t know why that’s a negative thing.”

The 10 Biggest Celebrity Breakups Of 2009

breakups jon and kate jpg
Breaking up is hard to do … especially when you know that your face is going to be smeared all over every ‘bloid and the paps will be stalking you for months. So grim. Celebrity breakups suck for them, but—sure I’ll admit it—they’re sources of endless entertainment for us. It’s hard to believe the media s**t show that ensued when TLC reality stars Jon and Kate Gosselin announced that they were getting divorced on TV. I actually feel bad for the kids and I’m glad that the judge finally banned Jon from making any further media appearances.

After the jump, some other breakups that kept us busy while we were getting our toes done this year.

Lindsay Lohan’s New Clothes Line Sketches Are In!

Joy! Lindsay Lohan is bringing her “designing talents” to yet another platform. She’s just announced that her 6126 line, which sold only leggings, will soon include a full range of dresses, jackets, tops, and vests. (Apparently, 6126, despite its laughable attempt at serious fashion through leggings, did quite well in business.) LiLo is quite excited about this new direction, and is, in fact, even desperate for you to know about it, so she tried to do a bit of her own PR by posting to Twitter yesterday: “i need MORE followers i am so sad about this, how can i tell everyone about my 6126 full collection COMING OUT! all clothing.”

First look at the sketches for the expanded 6126 shows drawings that look like they could have possibly been done by Lohan herself with a sort of middle school illustrative feeling. Looks like the wares will be a bit like Lohan—vixen-like with a touch of Hollywood trash. Think suede studded bustiers, skin-tight minis with exposed zippers, and cropped leather jackets. Check out a few more pics after the jump and tell us what you think! [WWD] Keep reading »
