What makes famous women take off their underwear? Jay Leno. In a sketch on last night’s show, Ross Matthew asked celebs at the Oscars to contribute something to Jay’s gift bag. Jamie Foxx relinquished his sunglasses; Hayden Panettiere kissed a napkin as a contribution; Tori Spelling talked incessantly about her crotchless Spanx—which, way too much information. And then Heidi Klum made the entire video, offering, “You want my underwear?” She then shimmyed them off underneath her sparkly dress. A woman of her word. Clip above. [PopEater] Keep reading »
It’s Women’s History Month, sisters, but you wouldn’t know it based on one women’s group’s plans. The Network of Enlightened Women, a conservative group, is hosting its annual Gentleman’s Showcase on college campuses during the month of March. The Gentleman’s Showcase seeks to honor young men who “behave like gentlemen” based on a set of criteria — both general and specific — explained on NEW’s web site. Young men have been nominated in the past by women because they carried groceries, shoveled snow, opened doors and other so-called “gentlemanly” behavior. There is no prize, per se, but the accolades of conservative women everywhere!
While I don’t know why NEW has to co-opt Women’s History Month for their Gentleman’s Showcase, nor do I agree that traditional gender roles should be enforced on anyone, I don’t inherently think the idea of positively acknowledging “nice guys” on college campuses is a terrible idea. Keep reading »
Oh my god, you guys, I think I just died a little inside. Ryan Gosling went to a zoo (with Evan Rachel Wood, but let’s ignore that fact because I refuse to entertain the notion that anything could be going on there) in Cincinnati and took all sorts of adorable photos with animals. I would like Ryan to look at me the way he is staring adoringly at this beast. Perhaps if I strap his head in just right… Check out more photos of Ryan Gosling making friends with animals, after the jump! [Cincinnati Zoo via ONTD] Keep reading »
A group is offering a scholarship to white men only, according to conservative news web site The Daily Caller. Any male Texas resident who is at least 25 percent Caucasian with a 3.0 GPA and financial need can apply for a $500 scholarship from The Former Majority Association for Equality. The group is concerned that, unlike women, African-Americans or Latinos or Asian/Pacific Islanders or other groups, white men do not have scholarships specifically for them. Keep reading »
Now that we’re in the winter home stretch, we’re looking for more creative ways to stay warm. After all, there’s only so many weeks and months of a drab winter coat one can take. As it warms up ever so slightly, may we suggest a capelet? Whimsical and slightly romantic, the capelet is one of those versatile numbers that can be worn as both outerwear and as a creative additional layer. As with pretty much everything, the key to wearing a capelet and not looking like a Twilight sparklevamp extra is proportion, so find one that works with your torso length, and pair with items that lengthen the body. After the jump, our capelet picks du jour.
“In light of this video, and as an individual who is proud to be Jewish, I will not be associated with Mr. Galliano in any way. I hope at the very least, these terrible comments remind us to reflect and act upon combating these still-existing prejudices that are the opposite of all that is beautiful.”
– Natalie Portman, the face of the Miss Dior Cherie fragrance, released a statement condemning Christian Dior designer John Galliano’s anti-Semitic rant. Galliano was caught on tape drunkenly declaring, “I love Hitler,” and then, addressing those filming him, “People like you would be dead today. Your mothers and forefathers would be f**king gassed.” Galliano has officially been fired from Dior, effective immediately. Said Dior CEO Sidney Toledano: “I very firmly condemn what was said by John Galliano, which totally contradicts the values which have always been defended by Christian Dior.” [StyleList] Keep reading »
