Gallery: Claire Danes Embraces Monogamy. Other Stars Aren’t So Positive

danes 082009 g1 jpg
Claire Danes does not have the best reputation when it comes to upholding the sanctity of marriage, since she stole Billy Crudup from a preggers Mary-Louise Parker. But apparently, she’s changed her stance now that she’s engaged to Hugh Dancy. “I was talking to my friend about [whether it] is feasible, is it realistic? I resolved that there isn’t really a better model. We just can’t shake monogamy. It definitely demands a kind of rigor and discipline and selflessness. But it’s also fun.” [NY Post]

Apparently, monogamy is a pretty hot topic in Hollywood. Maybe because there is so little of it happening?

Will The Madness Ever End? Beyonce Does Daywear

It’s not that there is anything particularly wrong with Beyonce‘s clothing line. It’s just that the usually cheap-looking threads, well, don’t come cheap. That’s why news that they’ve gathered enough of a customer base to expand is a touch surprising. The House of Dereon (or House of Dead Wrong, depending on your taste), is adding yet another category to its roster: day-wear. By way of explanation, Sasha Fierce’s mom Tina Knowles told Women’s Wear Daily:

“Beyonce and I have had several occasions where we are in meetings all day and don’t have time to run and change by dinner. This is the perfect collection to wear from the office to dinner because every piece can easily be dressed up or dressed down.”

They’ll debut in stores at end of the year and are estimated to range in price between $100 and $200 per piece. Um, yay? [WWD] Keep reading »

Too Many Scented Candles Could Give You Cancer!

Sorry, ladies, we’ve got another thing to add to your ever-growing list of cancer-causing products: scented candles. Burning candles super often in enclosed spaces could lead to asthma, eczema or even cancer. Most candles are made of paraffin wax and — just our luck — are the kind that, when lit, produce dangerous chemicals like toluene and benzene. So if you are going to woo your partner with a candlelit dinner or a sexy striptease in a dim room, opt for beeswax or soy candles, they’re safer. [Daily Mail] Keep reading »

Quick Pic: Daveigh Chase Shows The Paps “Big Love”

Daveigh Chase of “Big Love” isn’t often snapped by the paps, so she appears to be enjoying this photo shoot a little bit. Good thing she had a friend to hold onto as she exited Madame Royal Night Club. Otherwise, she would have looked kind of lonely. [L.A., 8/20/09] Keep reading »

Chloe Sevigny Freaks Us Out In New Japanese Video


Hip NYC boutique-turned-empire of sorts Opening Ceremony opens in Japan next week, complete with an indie star-studded — Jena Malone, Jason Schwartzman, etc. — video series meant to promote the whole enchilada. We’re sure the Japanese are rather excited about the coming of Opening Ceremony’s particular brand of fashion-y hipster cool clothes. But WTF is with this odd Chloe Sevigny video (above)? Is this a cultural divide thing? Or is it really just all-around too strange to comprehend? [Refinery 29] Keep reading »

Bidding Wars: Who Wants To See Levi Johnston Masturbate?

I am not the only one with a raging crush on stupid-hot Levi Johnston. After Levi told a reporter that he would consider going nude for the right price, StraightCollegeMen.com — a gay porn site which features straight men, uh, nekkid and stuff — wrote an open letter to the Alaskan stud, offering $25,000 for a “solo jerk off video.” Officially a hot commodity, New York-based gay blog Queerty.com, upped the ante by offering him double. Will Levi drop trou and get down to business for $50K? Or will another, higher offer come in? We’ll keep you posted. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

So Wrong, It’s Right? $300 Dolls by Lanvin

Please file this under totally gratuitous, irrational, over the top, luxury: super pricey figurines by Lanvin. The Paris-based luxury label has partnered with Franz Porcelain to create a line of limited edition dolls that range in price from $210 to $375. What makes them so special? Nothing really, except that the collection of six handcrafted pieces are all dolled up (pun intended) in the latest looks from the House of Lanvin. So to put it in perspective, the fact that a dress from Lanvin might cost several thousand dollars but a doll wearing the same from Lanvin only costs a couple of hundred makes this a steal, right? OK, maybe not. In case you do agree though, please note that these are limited edition. Only 800 per style will be put into production and will be available at Lanvin boutiques worldwide.

Rachel Zoe Is Coping With The Recession By Wearing Clothes More Than Once

There are a lot of rumors surrounding Rachel Zoe — that she’s forced clients to lose weight, takes horse pills to stay so tiny, and got dropped by some celebs during Oscar season — and in an interview with Women’s Wear Daily, the Zoe addressed these and more. We could just DIE in anticipation of season two of “The Rachel Zoe Project,” premiering on Bravo Aug. 24.
