All The Single Indie Rock Girls


Being that I love girly indie rock as much as I love booty-shakin’ pop, it’s no surprise that I kind of am majorly hearting this cover of Beyoncé’s “Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)” by some band called Pomplamoose. [via BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

What’s Next In Modeling? The Full-Figured, The Octogenarian, And The Unshaved!

Does this look like a runway model to you? Maybe! Sick of looking at runways overcrowded by blond, Caucasian, skinny models? Pipeline has a terrific post on the latest trends in fashion model looks. The new professional coat hangers are girls with way more curves, men and women in their sixth, seventh, and eighth decades of life, burly dudes with body hair, and boys who aren’t afraid to wear dresses. Pipeline says: “From scary, hairy, husky dudes (thanks Vivienne Westwood!) to buxom gals in super-short minis (à la Mark Fast), this new model trend is sure keeping the typical shows a lot more interesting!” We love all the diversity. Check out the rest! [Pipeline] Keep reading »

Wacky Shoes Abound!

Crazy shoes. They’re all the rage! Last week, we admired Rodarte‘s urban glamazon heels that could have been made from leftover parts found at the local mechanic’s. Yesterday in Milan, Miuccia Prada debuted a series of Lucite and plastic chandelier shoes with a rainbow of heel colors and swinging crystals. Equipped with what looks to be a velcro strap, the Prada footwear looks somewhat comfy — at least they didn’t send the models tumbling, as did Rodarte’s Nicholas Kirkwood stilettos. After the jump, two more highlights of the over-the-top heels trend! Keep reading »

13 Crazy Celeb Diet Secrets

shape diet 92409 g jpg
Remember when Jennifer Love Hewitt sported a bikini and got ragged on for having cellulite? Well, at the time, she defended her “size 2” curvy physique. But a couple years later, she not only dumped her then-fiancé, she dumped her attitude and started trash-talkin’ her old body. Now, she’s on the cover of Shape Magazine hocking her weight loss secrets. Our guess on how she did it, based on our reaction: puke, a lot. But actually, Hewitt thanked her boyfriend, comedian Jamie Kennedy, for inspiring her to be skinnier. Ugh, look, we don’t want to rain on anyone’s self-pride parade, but come on now, J.Love. What happened? Why can’t you just be like, “I’m hot at any size!” And seriously, if your BF was the reason you lost weight, you should lose him too. Anyway, bad vibes aside, we understand celebs are under a lot of pressure to look good and it makes them do craaaaaaazy things. So rather than cry about the state of the female body image, let’s laugh at celebs’ ridiculous “diet plans.” Oh, and the men are just as bad …

Is It Even Possible To Look Cute While You’re Riding A Bike?

Got the bike. Looking awesome while riding it? Not so easy. Rarely is there any gear for bikers that doesn’t look like Lance Armstrong’s hand-me-downs—i.e., it’s all way too serious stuff in not the best colors. Where’s the fun in that? Normally, I’d say go with skinny jeans, flats, and hope for the best, but after reading about a new line of clothes made explicitly (and expertly) for bikers, I’ll reconsider. Check these two ladies out: cycling enthusiast Amy Fleuriot and her friend, Sarah Buck, a former bike courier (bike messengers are no joke, people). Their company is called Cyclodelic and the two recent design grads are trying to make biking a bit more fashionable. Get a look at some of their genius innovations, after the jump. Keep reading »

Has The Recession Cut Back On Your Blowout Budget?

Check out the big-deal blowout Ashley Tisdale was rocking on the red carpet for last night’s premiere of “Fame.” Gotta say, it’s been a looooonnnggg time since I saw a celeb sport the basic (and expensive to all of us, not to mention time-consuming) blowout. There wasn’t a messy curl in sight. No artfully mussed waves. No going with your natural hair tendencies. And while I think the hairdo is sort of refreshing-looking after such a long stretch of bedhead-y hair—I have to wonder one thing … Keep reading »

Sweet New Blog: My Parents Were Awesome

Just because your parents walk around wearing pants that go up past their bellybuttons, have a one-drink limit, and go to bed at 10pm doesn’t mean they weren’t cool once. My dad, who is now balding and has a white beard, was a hardcore hippie back in the day, with red hair that was so long it touched the tops of his tight bellbottoms. This blog, “My Parents Were Awesome,” shows pics of people’s parents looking young, hip and, dare I say, trendy! It reminds us that yeah, the ‘rents were young once, too. A few of our fave pics, after the jump. Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: Make It A Carrie Prejean Halloween!

  • Beauty queen Carrie Prejean modeled some less-than-modest Halloween costumes for Women of Marvel last year, before her Miss California fiasco. Um, is this supposed to be hoochie Spiderwoman? [TMZ] We’re not sayin’ these Halloween costumes make Miss I’m Sooooo Into Family Values a hypocrite or anything. We’re just sayin’.
  • “Spontaneous ejaculation,” supposedly a medical condition, is no excuse for acting like a creep! A Singapore judge ruled recently against 28-year-old Chong Weien, who got nabbed splooging on a fellow student’s thigh in 2006. Ew! Weien, who is also a National University of Singapore student (in psychology, ha), was riding a bus when he pressed his crotch up against some chick’s thigh and blew his load. She took him to court for an “outrage of modesty,” which the judge agreed with, despite testimony from two doctors who said Weien does indeed suffer from a “spontaneous ejaculation” problem. Hmm, maybe it was the fact that creepy Weien was jailed for 15 months and caned three times in 2002 for a similar conviction? [Straights Times, hat tip to True/Slant]
