Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
I’m very against wearing scarves during the summer; they make your neck sweaty on hot days. But now that it’s officially fall, you’re permitted to break them out with reckless disabandon. While it’s not quite cool enough for a full-on knit wool number, a lightweight one will look seasonally appropriate with a dress, boots, and a cardigan. Maggie Gyllenhaal strolled around New York City yesterday afternoon with husband Peter Sarsgaard in what we think is the perfect fall outfit. Click through to find a thin plaid scarf to add to your closet.
Chris Brown has released his first single since assaulting Rihanna in February. “I Can Transform Ya” features Lil Wayne and Swizz Beats, who produced the track. You can hear it in the video above, but skip to 2:17 if you don’t want to hear Chris try to figure out how to work his computer. “I Can Transform Ya” sounds like the man’s version of Beyonce‘s “Upgrade U” on B’Day. Even though his version is rather late — “Upgrade U” was released in 2006 — I don’t think this should have been his first release after the assault. Each time the hook plays, I think about how he transformed Rihanna’s face. Let us know what you think about the single in the comments. Keep reading »
Not to “go there” with gender stereotyping, but whoever said men are pigs knew what they were talking about. Or at least, they’d spent enough time watching the way some guys eat and witnessed the disgusting massacre of their meals. (OK, to be fair, girls can be equally disgusting; we’ll cop to that.) For the man who can’t keep it on his plate, there’s this handy dishtowel tie from Atypyk. A washable blend of linen and cotton, the tie can catch messy eaters’ drippings. Or, let it serve as a two-in-one that he can use to clean up with after. Bon appétit, boyfriends! [$41.58, Atypyk] Keep reading »
We don’t hide the fact that we’re really girly girls. We like makeup, braids, and dresses. Sometimes, though, we want to toughen up our sweet image without going too far off the deep end. This Concho Rivet Trinity Wrap Bracelet with its round studs will add a little goth or biker chick to our girliest ensembles. The bracelet comes in black and gray, as well as berry, emerald, and saddle yellow, so it has the feel of a studded Hermès bracelet (without the crazy price tag) rather than one from Hot Topic.

Have I mentioned that I’m not a huge fan of Katherine Heigl? Or romantic comedies in general? Yes, I believe I have. Let the record reflect that being dragged to see “The Ugly Truth” in the theater was my worst nightmare. The movie even made my popcorn taste bad. In case you missed this winner of a film, it’s about two people in the work place with opposing points of view about love. Do I smell sexual tension resulting in a “happily ever after”? Ding ding ding! That’s why I got a little bit fired up when I saw Movieline‘s amazing list of movies with interesting plots and star power that got murdered this year. As in, got quietly brushed under the rug, locked in film vaults, or sent straight to video stores to make room for the likes of Sandra Bullock’s blockbuster “The Proposal.” Kill me now. After the jump, the top five films that never were that I would have preferred over the same old BS. Keep reading »
Thirty-five-year old Connecticut woman Janet Lee, aka “the foremost psychic in New England,” called the police in July to report that she was attacked outside her Greenwich office. So who dunnit? Lee claimed it was a gang of rival psychics. What, is there like a psychic mafia? I wonder what the motive could possibly be: “She sees more dead people than we do … let’s beat her up!” The gang of psychics allegedly left threatening messages on her phone before they came to “get” Lee. Only one thing stood in the way of their capture — Lee didn’t quite seem to know their names. Wait … I thought she was psychic? Is this story sounding a wee bit far-fetched to anyone else? After a thorough investigation, police have deemed it crazytown and are now charging Lee for falsely reporting a crime. Police think she may have been beaten up by someone she knows. Or better yet … maybe it was a ghost? [AOL] Keep reading »
We seriously can’t wait for “The Imaginarium Of Doctor Parnassus” to come out, but for now, we’ll settle for its star, Model Citizen Lily Cole’s outstanding hairdo. She could’ve gone for a perfectly polished blow-dry (like the ones we’re beginning to see on the red carpet again), but we like this toned-down version. To get the look, blow-dry until it’s almost there but the ends are ever so slightly damp. Work a cream stylant like John Frieda Straight Fixation Smoothing Creme into the ends and twist large sections (about four total) around with your fingers. Air-dry and traipse off to your film premiere or, ah, work. [Paris, 9/30/09] Keep reading »
Last weekend, Hulk Hogan‘s girlfriend, Jennifer McDaniel (who looks nothing like Brooke), got the Hulk’s real name, Terry, tattooed on the inside of her right wrist. In return, the Hulk reportedly got a tattoo that says, “I AM THAT, I AM.” That sounds … fair? [The Fab Life]
I have a laser tattoo removal session in an hour. Trust me when I say that getting someone’s name tattooed on you is a terrible idea. So, why is it that famous people are so susceptible to doing it? Here, a look at celebs who’ve gotten name tats. And yes, this is a whole new genre of celebrity tattoos beyond simple matching ones.
Not since the days of “Pretty Woman” have leather skirts even crossed our minds. Perhaps Cher Horowitz has been the only girl since then to rock one with class. Because otherwise we can only think of Jersey-accented monsters or brain-dead girlfriends of rock gods wearing them. Yet, this ’90s classic has been making a comeback this fall and we like what we see. The garment seems to be fitting in well with the edgier looks on the shelves—you know, asymmetrical lines, lots of black, and a sort of androgynous, Helmut Lang aesthetic. We’re digging the traditional tight-and-straight cut, but what we’re particularly keen on are these leather skirts with more body. They don’t scream s-e-x as much as they do c-u-t-e … Keep reading »
We try to stay away from scales (happiness is not a number, people), but this one caught our attention. Um, as if blindingly bright magenta shag couldn’t. Meet the Plush Size Yay! Scale, a device which doesn’t so much read your weight as it does tell you you’re great. Step on it and the needle points to words like lovely, hot, ravishing, and sexy.
So, would this mean that the fatter you get, the more awesome you are? Oh dear. Here’s the crazy thing about this kooky item that you’d think is a gag gift: It’s sold out and on back order. People are actually buying this and putting it in their homes (oh, the horror!). Although, we hear that Austin Powers put in an order for a couple dozen, so maybe it’s just him.
