Knowd: Simply Irresistible
We’ve already discussed The Shoe that we non-famous people are going all bats**t crazy over, but here’s The Bag of the season, according to Alexander McQueen’s Twitter feed and, um, visual proof — Freida Pinto, Kelly Osbourne, Little Boots and Sam Taylor Wood all wore his Skull Knuckle Duster Clutch to those GQ awards we were discussing yesterday. (On that note, if you haven’t witnessed Kate Moss’ temper tantrum yet, please watch it ASAP.) This shiz is smokin’ hot if, say, you’re into skulls and leather and all that crap (and I assure you, I am), but the problem is that I’m pretty sure the designer’s publicists sent these gorgeous young folks this clutch free of charge, because that’s basically how this system works. Sadly, most of us peons will never quite achieve McQueenian nirvana since the price tag of this delectable little number is no less than $1,895. Check it out here if you want to buy it and/or don’t believe me. Get a much closer look at it after the jump, because you know at least we can look forward to knockoffs coming to an H&M near us soon.

I don’t even have time to list all the politicians who’ve been caught having affairs in recent years. But at least Mark Sanford and John Edwards had the good sense not to talk about their dalliances on tape. California State Assemblyman Mike Duvall, a self-stated “family values warrior” who recently won the Ethics in America award, forgot that he was wearing a microphone when, before an assembly meeting, he dished all the dirty deets of his affair(s) to an assembly buddy. “I’ve been getting into spanking her,” he said on the recording. “I like it!” [CNN]

I still remember the confused look on my date’s face as I self-consciously blurted out, apropos of nothing, “I’ve just lost seven pounds on Weight Watchers and I intend to lose 15 more!”
With that I stifled a burp, plunked down my pint glass and realized that we (meaning, he) had been talking about his band, not my tummy bulge. But who could blame me? Weight Watchers assigns each food a points value and you’re only allowed a certain amount each day. I’d been hoarding all of mine for our date. (Beer is three points a bottle!) I was a little woozy.
But not too woozy to note that I’d become that most embarrassing of daters — the oversharer. Keep reading »
But Tyra’s period show wasn’t all about famous women pushing Tampax up their lady flowers: Tyra invited three doctors on the show to explain why Aunt Flo comes to visit. It’s a ghastly state of affairs for sex ed if grown women are learning why they get their periods on “The Tyra Show.” Still, I learned lotsa stuff about my monthlies thanks to Ty-Ty … like, you can still get laid if you go to bed wearing an adult diaper on your heavy flow nights. Proof of THAT above!

Johnny Weir, eat your heart out. If you’ve ever wanted to live out your Ice Capade fantasies, now is the moment, thanks to our discovery of Holiday On Ice Costumes, a resale site of over-the-top wardrobe options for ice skaters and, presumably, norms like us. To look Michelle Kwan-chic, you could start with the “Single Ladies” section (named for category, not the Beyoncé song), where you’ll find bedazzled leotards and tulle skirts. To set fire to the ice, check out the flame-themed ensembles. Our favorite, however, has to be this leopard guy’s bolero, which, in certain romantic circumstances, we might not actually mind seeing on a man (if you get what we’re saying).

Fashion photographer Steven Klein‘s latest foray into highly-stylized eroticism can be found not in Vogue Italia but Vogue Hommes Japan. There’s a cover and 30 pages of all-male action, starring ripped abs, bent-over boys, and fetish gear that’s sure to make the girls and the gays alike happy. The sexy male models in contorted poses usually relegated to the sticky, glossy pages of clandestine SM-themed men’s magazines include Travis Hanson, Ryan Koning, and Colby Jamar. Get an eyeful of more of these barely-clad fashion gladiators after the jump. Keep reading »
