Get Your Sparks Plugged: Electricians Are The New Dude Of Choice

Turns out Pamela Anderson isn’t the only star dating an electrician. British pop singer Leona Lewis has been getting loads of flack for staying with her boyfriend of seven years, Lou Al-Chamaa, also a master of all things electric. She’s pissed that everyone’s heckling her. “It does make me angry,” she said. “Because he’s a great person. And it doesn’t matter what you do in life, what your job is, where you come from. For people to think that you should leave someone because, all of a sudden, you’re a singer and you have opportunities. I feel very sorry for them.” Leona’s sparky (which is apparently slang for electrician) also happens to be hawt, which sweetens the deal. [People] Keep reading »

If Underwear Could Fly


What would your panties (eww, hate that word) do if they had the day off from the constraints of being the most over-worked and under-appreciated undergarments? Perhaps they would take flight as they do in this Japanese cartoon, “Sora no Otoshimono.” Does anyone know what that means in Japanese? All of these pairs of underwear flapping in the breeze inspired a guy to actually create a real-life pair of flying schoolgirl panties. OK, that’s just slightly creepy. Watch them take to the sky after the jump. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

8 Magazine Racks Under $50

We like magazines. A lot. The only problem is they arrive in our mailbox faster than we can devour them, creating a cluttered apartment. Maybe a decorative and functional magazine rack will help. Any one of these eight periodical holders will keep your monthlies as orderly as the Library of Congress.

Amelia Earhart—The New Sexy Style Icon?

For Hermès’ fall/winter catalog, the high-fashion house has created an Amelia Earhart-themed spread for its Jean Paul Gaultier-designed collection. Inspired by the new movie? Or just coincidence? In any case, the image of Amelia has been brought back—the aviation record breaker, that is, and not our lovely site editor (although she is super stylish, too).

In this series photographed by Peter Lindbergh, “Amelia” is sexier than ever with strong and manly trench coats, fur-collar bomber jackets, and leather driving gloves. The looks are pretty badass, but we’re not so sure we’d accessorize with aviator goggles and a large wrench. Think we’ll be seeing more sexy Amelia Earhart-inspired designs? Check out a few more pics after the jump. [ViewonFashion Magazine] Keep reading »

What Is Suri Cruise Going To Be For Halloween?

Our photo service, Splash News, says this is a photo of Suri Cruise and Katie Holmes shopping for Halloween costumes. Since we don’t see any costumes in this pic, we’re wondering what little Suri is going to be for Halloween:

  1. Xenu?
  2. Baby Maverick from “Top Gun”?
  3. A princess? (She’s got the outfits for it!)
  4. Baby “Risky Business”?
  5. Shiloh Jolie-Pitt?

Han Cholo Straight Razorblade Pendant

So this pendant is meant for a boy, which is kind of cool, but on a girl it would be totally badass. Take away all images of all the places a lady could shave, and instead think of this as a warning to all foes: “You’ll get cut if you mess with me!” We’re not condoning violence, mind you. We usually cut and slash egos, not flesh, with our quick wit. [$57, 80's Purple] Keep reading »

“Serious Moonlight” Looks Like Serious Crap


Poor Meg Ryan. Her last big role was as a jilted wife in “The Women,” a role she’s reprising in the horrifically dumb-looking “Serious Moonlight.” When she learns her hubby (played by Timothy Hutton) is ditching her for a younger woman (played by Kristen Bell), Ryan snaps and … duct tapes him to a chair so she can “seduce” him. Sounds like a lighter version of Stephen King’s “Misery,” which was pretty creepy. Domestic violence-infused plot aside, the “Serious Moonlight” trailer loses us when Hutton’s character blames his wife for straying and says: “You haven’t needed me for years! You make more money than I do, you can fix anything, you can bench-press more than me.” Yeah, because you know those self-sufficient career women—they’re awful!

We know “Serious Moonlight” is supposed to be a WACKY comedy and all, but girlfriend needs to get herself some dignity both on screen and off. Come on, Meg Ryan, you can do better! Keep reading »

Do You Suffer From Failed Potential Syndrome?

I think I am recovering from a disease that I didn’t even know had a name. When I read about Failed Potential Syndrome in the Daily Mail, the symptoms sounded disturbingly familiar. FPS is characterized by peer envy (check), failure to launch (check), and a general feeling that you haven’t quite achieved what you had expected to by a certain age (double check). Well, at least it’s good that I can finally diagnose myself?

See, I was a superstar kid. You know—the one who gets good grades and the leads in all of the community theater plays. The one whose parents may have made her feel a little bit too special. The one who might have been a little bit awkward, but was banking on her smarts and talents to catapult her into all-around adult greatness and mega-success.

The Halloween Inspiration Board: Carrie Prejean

Oh Carrie Prejean, we’ve had so much fun getting to know the former Miss California and her distaste for gay marriage in the last year. She’s become one of the most recognizable beauty queens that we’ve ever had the pleasure to see actin’ a fool on national TV! In fact, she makes the perfect Halloween costume, especially if you live in a warm part of the country and can feasibly wear a bathing suit at the end of October. (If not, a tacky white evening dress is a good substitute.) Keep reading »
