Quote Of The Day: Christina Hendricks Likes Being Bad

“Drinking and smoking and having sex with other people’s wives and all those things—they are bad, bad behaviors. But it’s all done with fabulous clothes and lighting and excellent music, and that makes for a really sexy show. Being bad is sexy.”

Christina Hendricks explains the sex appeal of her hit show, “Mad Men,” which starts its third season this Sunday. [NY Mag] Keep reading »

Dakota Fanning Plays Dress-Up For T Magazine

The fall fashion issue of the New York Times’ T Magazine boasts a stunning spread of 15-year-old Dakota Fanning. Dressed in nude, brown, and cream colors, the star’s monochromatic style is super luxe and features Dior, Lanvin, and Chanel. The actress attends private school, is a cheerleader, and has an obsession with Marni platforms. While she may be growing up into a highbrow celeb, she’s still an adolescent: “[She's] pleased to exercise the prerogative that states that for a period in one’s life, a particular pair of shoes—or a bag or a boy, for that matter—can be perfect in every respect and should be worn (or phoned) every day.” Of course, if we had a closet full of Marni pumps, we’d be wearing them every day with as much youthful zeal.

Rachel Zoe DIES for Bob Dylan

You can tell a lot about a person by the kind of music they like. We know Rachel Zoe‘s clothing preferences (expensive vintage dresses, Hermes Birkin bags, face-covering sunglasses) from her reality TV show. We know her current fashion and beauty picks from her newsletter. Now, with the release of her iTunes playlist, we know her taste in music.

While the decades most significantly represented (the ’60s and ’70s) make sense given that she loves vintage clothing from those eras, we would have guessed there would have been some less obvious current artists than Madonna and Coldplay. Rachel’s assistant Taylor dresses all rock’n’ roll with tons of black eyeliner and messy hair, so shouldn’t she be cluing Rachel in to some less overplayed tunes? After the jump, Rachel’s commentary on her taste in music. Keep reading »

Quick Pic: Halle Berry’s “Baby Bump” Has Disappeared

We reported Halle Berry may be having another baby, but the starlet’s suspected baby bump seems to have disappeared. Sure, she’s wearing baggy jeans, but I’m not convinced she’s preggers again. What do you think? [Hollywood, 8/13/09] Keep reading »

Sarah Palin Returns To Twitter. What Will Her First Tweet Be?

Here’s something I can give Sarah Palin credit for: She is not a poseur. When she stepped down as governor of Alaska, she kindly relinquished her Twitter handle, @AKGovSarahPalin. Her final tweet read, “Last state twitter. Thank you Alaska! I love you. God bless Alaska. God bless the U.S.A.” Then, silence.

Since, Sarah has taken to long-form writing on her Facebook page, going on and on in footnoted posts about how Obama’s proposed health-care plan would have babies like Trig face “death panels.” (Huh?) But let’s face it. Even Sarah’s fans don’t want more than 140 characters of her musings. So, thank goodness Sarah has set up a new Twitter feed: @SarahPalinUSA. She has yet to tweet a single character, but here are our predictions as to what she’ll tweet. Keep reading »

Missed Connection: Girl In White Pants At Gossip Girl Filming On 2nd Ave – M4W (Upper East Side)

While people have been gawking at the “Gossip Girl” crew that’s been filming all over Manhattan, some of the fans aren’t there to get a peek at their celeb crushes. This guy found his heart drawn towards an unknown girl wandering around the set. Hoping to find her, he posted in Craigslist‘s “Missed Connections.”

I am hoping to find the Gorgeous Tan Girl who was wearing White Pants and an Orange or Red Shirt and was with her 2 friends on 2nd Avenue right outside the Gossip Girl set that was filming. We made eye contact many times and I was hoping you would walk in the same direction as I walked but after turning around many times I finally lost you. If you happen to see this, please email me and let me know if you remember or know who I am or what I look like, etc.. I would love to be lucky enough to take you out for a drink.. Hope to find you…..

Interesting use of caps here! We hope that they find each other. And that they don’t have a relationship as complicated as Chuck and Blair’s. [Craigslist] Keep reading »

Heidi Montag’s Playboy Spread Hits The Internet

Those much-talked-about photos of Heidi Montag in Playboy have finally hit the web. While they are pretty tame, considering, you know, she’s not exactly naked in them, I wouldn’t exactly describe them as “chaste” either. In the pics, she lolls about on a bed, reclines near a fireplace, stares blankly out a window. With her top off. Or her bottom off. It’s like the usual Playboy fare — but without all the naughty bits. Personally, I find them somewhat depressing. Remember those early seasons of “The Hills,” when Heidi was a sassy back-talker who dropped men like so much tissue? In this layout, she looks like a sad, over-posed Barbie doll. In other words, the wet dream of Spencer Pratt. Shudder. [Hollyscoop] Keep reading »

Will John Edwards Admit That He’s A Baby Daddy?

Maybe I should start reading the National Enquirer more often. They may have been right about John Edwards being the father of Rielle Hunter’s baby. Last August, Edwards confessed that he’d had an affair with Hunter, his campaign videographer, and went on to divulge way too much information on ABC’s “Nightline” about their trysts. But he’s always held fast that he couldn’t be the father of Hunter’s now 18-month-old baby because they were done before the baby was conceived. North Carolina news station WRAL says inside sources have told them that Edwards is close to stepping up to the plate and admitting he’s the baby’s father. Poor Elizabeth Edwards. I’m not sure which is worse—having a husband who cheated and denies having a love child or having a husband who has a love child. [Gawker] Keep reading »

Armored Jeans Protect Against Angry Fashionistas

Armor-like clothing and jewelry seem to be having a moment right now. Denim brand Acne is slated to offer a pair of armored jeans in its spring/summer 2010 lookbook. The polished plates on the knees, thighs, and calves will protect you if your heel catches and causes you to tumble to the sidewalk — or if a jealous friend kicks you in the shins. We’d like to know whether they make your legs sweat, or if the armor is somehow breathable. [via NY Mag] Keep reading »
