What’s black and white and printed all over? Besides the newspaper, check out this prize maxi-dress that Lauren found at the flea market in Queensland, Australia. She’s headed out for a day of sightseeing with her beau, looking awesome and feeling fab about the price tag. Is there any better combination? Keep reading »

Michelle Obama Is Now An Action Figure

What with those sculpted arms and supermom credentials, it was only a matter of time before someone would turn the First Lady into some type of cartoon-y character. Behold the new Michelle Obama action figure, a product of Jailbreak Toys (which also produces the similar Barack Obama action figure). While the doll’s huge head and teeny waist sure depict a weird version of Michelle, it stays true to her personal style, bringing back to life some of her more famous outfits—the black and red dress by Narciso Rodriguez that she wore on election night and the more affordable White House/Black Market dress she wore on “The View.”

MObama probably wouldn’t shut down the operation like she did with the Sasha and Malia dolls, but we do wonder how she feels about this. Thoughts? [Cool Hunting] Keep reading »

Hong Kong School Girls Dig “Compensated Dating”

Here’s a skeevy trend for you. In Hong Kong, teenage girls are going on “compensated dates” after school. Basically, they go out with older men in exchange for money, but they don’t see this as prostitution, because in their minds they’re in control of whether or not sex is involved … even though sex is usually involved. These girls are using the money to buy fancy-schmancy designer goods, which are increasingly a big deal in Asia. Total side note: When I studied in Tokyo, my Japanese friend told me that she wanted the brands that Americans like Britney Spears wore. When I tried to explain that teenage girls can’t often afford the same things as celebrities, she looked legitimately confused.

Jaycee Lee Dugard On The Cover Of “People” Makes Us Feel Icky

Really, people? Or maybe I should say really, People? Kidnapped for 18 years, Jaycee Lee Dugard and her two children finally escaped their lives as prisoners of Phillip Garrido this August, much to the joy of the Dugard family. But not two months have passed before Jaycee is on the cover of People magazine. Keep reading »

Beating The Clock: 30-Something Women Have Babies On The Brain

Ask almost any childless women in her 30s to name five things that have been on her mind lately, and there’s a good chance she’ll mention her biological clock. It may not be the first thing she names — her career, the economy, saving for a house, her parents’ health, the health of her relationship, finishing her dissertation, fitting back into her skinny jeans, and finding someone to share her life with may be getting more of her attention; but for a vast majority of us, the idea of having kids is something we think about nearly as much, if not more, than almost everything else. After all, our biological clocks and the issues of when, whether, and how long we have left to procreate determine so many other variables in our life. And for those of us who wait until our 30s — a quickly growing number of us these days — it’s a decision we face when the stakes are especially high. Keep reading »

Thigh-High Boots Responsible For New Type Of Muffin Top

Today’s forecast? More muffin top. Jess talked yesterday about how people shouldn’t assume pregnancy is responsible for that little extra pudge around the middle and just keep their mouths shut when it comes to muffin top. But here’s a new brand of ‘top for you: thigh-high muffin top. Thanks to all those fashionable folks sporting over-the-knee boots this season, we are caught in a veritable muffin top s**tstorm, of sorts. What more should you know about the thigh high muffin top? Let me explain… Keep reading »

There was a huge gay rights march in Washington, D.C. this weekend and “The Daily Show” had its best man on the case. John Oliver hit the streets to talk with rainbow-wearing folks about their nefarious aims—equal rights, fair treatment, dangerous things like that.

Lez Be Real: These Famous Ladies Should Couple Up

wishlist lezzies g1 jpg
Ever since Drew Barrymore and her “Whip It” co-star Ellen Page locked lips for Marie Claire, everyone has been crowing about the gay undertones of their friendship. We wish that they weren’t just undertones! Drew has dated plenty of dudes and had dalliances with a few ladies too, while Ellen seems like a mature young lady who would fit well with an older — but still super fun — lady like Drew. Just do it ladies. Lock lips for realzies.

Frankly, there are a lot of women in Hollywood and beyond that we think would be happier if they gave their same sex a shot. Keep clicking for 14 other lesbian couples on our wish list.

What Not To Wear On Halloween If You’re A Guy

The Sexist has created another one of her hilarious roundups of the most horrifyingly awful, supposedly sexy Halloween costumes. This time, she takes on pseudo-sexy costumes for dudes, and they’re a real horror. (The worst of the “sexy” costumes for women is here.) While Sexy Pirate with a Big Sword and Sexy Cop in a Pair of Ridiculous Hotpants are strong contenders for the best of the worst, my favorite is the fireman you see here. He’s so much more than a fake tan male model with washboard abs in a bad fireman suit. He’s a guy with a rubber hose in his pants who wants to put out the fire in your burning loins. No problem doing that, dork. [The Sexist] Keep reading »
