Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
On Tuesday night, British Glamour celebrated its Women of the Year Awards, honoring outstanding women who have changed the world. And of course, the evening’s attendees came decked in some rather, um, eclectic visions. Check out the best — and the rest, including a hat we’re pretty sure is made of duct tape and bubble wrap — after the jump.
- An old woman in Italy reportedly put an “old-fashioned spinster spell” on Snooki. I cannot wait to watch how this plays out in season four of “Jersey Shore”! [Celebitchy]
- Here’s one woman’s tales from fact-checking at Cosmopolitan. [Slate]
- Fox News used a picture of Tina Fey to illustrate a story about Sarah Palin. You’d think Fox News, for heaven’s sake, would be able to tell the difference. [BuzzFeed]
- MSNBC’s Chris Matthews suggested on his program yesterday that Huma Abedin, wife of Rep. Anthony Weiner and top aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, may be “partly responsible” for the dick pics he’s been tweeting to strange women. Oh, yeah? Partly responsible for his behavior, you say? Explain that to me, please. [Think Progress]
- The hotel housekeeper who was allegedly sexually assaulted by Dominique Strauss Kahn, former chief of the International Monetary Fund, will take the stand to testify against him, her lawyer announced. [New York Times]
- Four-year-old artist Aelita Andre is showing her work in her first exhibition. Allow me to repeat: she’s four. [BBC]
Wendy Williams, host of GSN’s new show “Love Triangle,” has a huge ass disco ball ring and the opinions to match. For instance, in this segment of “Love It Or Leave It,” the talk show queen declares that saving yourself for marriage is one of the most “impractical” things a woman can do. Why? Watch the video to find out and then tell us whether you agree in the comments!
You might think that oppulent, over-the-top fashions begin and end with Lady Gaga, but then you (probably) haven’t met Daphne Guinness. The British socialite and artist is regularly on both sides of the best and worst dressed lists by perfecting the art of looking totally batcrackers in photos. Look at the great FACE she’s giving! Check more Guinness out after the jump.
“I say to my friends, ‘Why hasn’t X called me? Why doesn’t anyone ever pursue me?’ They’re like, ‘Probably because they’re intimidated.’ It must be the fame wall … It must be the circus that goes around me. Me, as a person, I find it hard to believe I would be intimidating … Sometimes, maybe because they feel intimidated, they feel they have to knock me down. They know perfectly well who I am, but they’ll ask me, ‘How are the Narnia films going?’ … [That's why] I’m single at the minute.”
—Emma Watson talks about her dating issues. While I can’t relate to her particular dating problem (what is the “fame wall?”), it does feel good to know that all of us—no matter how hot, or rich, or famous, or adorably British—have them. Although, I imagine being able to treat yourself to a $5,000 shopping spree after being dissed by a guy would be a great comfort. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
