Fall Fashion T.V Bonanaza: Nina Garcia & Jazmin Whitley

Project Runway and the Fashion Show (if they ever even make it back on TV) should prep for some ferosh competition. Project Runway judge Nina Garcia, is adding another television show to her magazine editing and t.v show judging duties: acting. Garcia will be a guest star on Ashton Kutcher’s new series, “The Beautiful Life,” and has already filmed her scenes for one episode. Depending on how well Garcia is received by the audience, there’s a solid chance that her role could extend to more episodes. The show, which debuts September 16th also stars Mischa Barton and Elle McPherson. Hot on Garcia’s heels is Jazmin Whitley! Never heard of her? Starting tomorrow, you will. Keep reading »

No Sex For The Husband? No Food For The Wife, Says Afghan Law

A new law in Afghanistan permits men who are Shia Muslims to deny food for their wives if she won’t satisfy his sexual longings. According to the Guardian, the law states:

“Tamkeen is the readiness of the wife to submit to her husband’s reasonable sexual enjoyment, and her prohibition from going out of the house, except in extreme circumstances, without her husband’s permission. If any of the above provisions are not followed by the wife she is considered disobedient.”

Would You Date—Or Marry—A Plastic Surgeon?

Imagine you’re getting dressed in front of your boyfriend and you ask the cliché question: “Do I look fat?” (We hope not, but just for the sake of argument here…) And his response is, “Well actually, do you want to do something about that?”

What would it be like to date a plastic surgeon—someone who spends his life producing and considering the “ideal” in female beauty? The New York Times‘s T style magazine investigates this question in its latest issue. The answers, surprisingly, are a mixed bag. There’s what you might expect—women who are cosmetic surgery fans ask their partners to help them out (and they do so willingly). One celeb surgeon, Dr. Raj Kanodia (Jen Aniston‘s nose man) has been known to dole out freebies to the ladies. “With previous girlfriends,” he says, “I’ve always done something—a little injection, a little Botox, and several of them I’ve done noses either during the relationship or after we broke up.” Keep reading »

Can Gay Men Sexually Harass Straight Women?

Here’s a question: Can gay men sexually harass straight women? We’re aware of three instances in which gay men have felt it appropriate to fondle women without their permission and justified their behavior because they’re homosexual. Dwight Eubanks, the “sixth housewife,” was a major player on last week’s episode of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” but one thing I noticed about him was that he feels up every woman he meets. He grabs and jiggles breasts, runs his hands up and down legs and thighs, and inspects faces. (Watch the video above starting at 4:10 for a taste of his inappropriateness.) Keep reading »

Topless Lady Gaga Lets It All Hang OUT

Because nothing and no one is safe from the far-ranging influence of Twilight, Lady Gaga and OUT Magazine have now officially gone vampire. She of the crazy clothes can be found this month in the mag’s pages clad as scantily as ever, but they’ve traded in her usual avant-garde fare for plenty of skin, black leather, a whole lot of blood-smearing and the sort of skeleton-loving we’re pretty sure can’t be totally legal.

Christian Siriano For Payless Is Perfect For The Tranny With An Office Job

Christian Siriano‘s shoe line for Payless is now available, and even though we caught a glimpse of them during New York Fashion Week, we’re still disappointed. At least the ones the models at his show wore were interesting/scary, with spikes and chains galore. The two pairs currently on Payless’ website look like they were made for a tranny who works as the assistant to a business executive. Upon seeing the shoes, our Annika replied, “They hurt my feelings.” They’d probably hurt our feet, too. Keep reading »

New Modeling Agency Goes Out On A Limb

Hello gorgeous! There’s a new group of models strutting their way down the internet catwalk. While most of us tremble at the strict standards for high fashion models, these gals won’t let a missing limb stop them from booking a professional photo shoot. They are bad to the bone!

Amputee World is a site devoted to showing off young and beautiful women who happen to be missing a limb. The money raised by their webzine subscribers goes to giving girls a modeling photo portfolio to launch their career and fitting them with expensive prosthetic limbs. While they have a “no nudity” policy (respect!), dudes have been swooning over these glamazons. And who can blame them? These ladies are confident babes! Dang, I may not be missing a limb, but I wish I had the rad attitude these amazing women have. Keep reading »

The New Baby Shower

Baby showers haven’t changed much over the years. Guests, usually women, are forced to play silly games like Pin-the-Pacifier-on-the-Baby and that Don’t-Say-Baby safety pin game. Then, there’s the über-gross melted chocolate in the diaper thing that’s supposed to be funny but is simply disgusting. And don’t forget the obligation most guests feel to ooh and ahh at everything cutesy.

However, I went to a baby shower on Saturday expecting all these things and was actually rather surprised and relieved to find out it wouldn’t live up to my expectations. Keep reading »

Sonic Youth On Gossip Girl? Huh?

For those of you youngins out there, let me explain to you the rocking indie impact that the band Sonic Youth had on me my freshman year of high school when I first saw them play. The small room went wild as a bunch of dirty teens half-headbanged, half-moshed to their raw sound. When alternative music was a newborn, Sonic Youth was the band that first introduced me to the hardcore post-punk, pre-emo sound that shaped my musical taste and defined the angsty sound of my generation. That’s why I was so intrigued to hear that Sonic Youth would be performing an acoustic version of “Starpower,” a song they wrote in 1986, on the fifth episode of “Gossip Girl” this season! Under what circumstances will the band appear? “It’s a big event that involves [engaged adults] Rufus and Lily. Just draw your own conclusions,” says Stephanie Savage, “GG”‘s showrunner.

Are Tattoos On Women (Gasp!) Trashy?

Huffington Post blogger Irene Rubaum-Keller is having a mid-life crisis. She’s even thinking about doing something really crazy, like getting a tattoo (!). Clearly, she has some misgivings, because she posted a Facebook poll, where she “found that people have very strong feelings about tattoos in general, and tattoos on women in particular. The responses I got were: ‘Pure Trash.’ ‘Do It!!!!’ ‘Reminds me of the concentration camps.’ ‘I guess it’s OK as long as it has meaning for you.’ etc…” [Huffington Post]

Now, besides the fact that you probably shouldn’t make the decision to get a tattoo or not based on what randoms on Facebook have to say about the matter, the first response she listed gave me pause. Does the whole “women who get tattoos are ‘trashy’ stigma” actually still exist? Do females tend to feel more shame when it comes to their ink? While I hate the idea that any of this might be true, I also have to confess that I do have a tattoo that I feel pretty bad about from time to time. Keep reading »
