The Free Speech Coalition, the adult industry trade association, has named Hustler founder and publisher Larry Flynt as the recipient of its annual Legacy Award, to be presented at the 2009 FSC Awards in Los Angeles on November 14.

Hustler Magazine celebrated its 35th birthday this year in July with a special anniversary issue and a VIP birthday bash. Flynt might just be the best friend the First Amendment has ever had, and he’s certainly helped pave the way for much of modern adult entertainment as we now know it. Continue reading Keep reading »

Etsy Offers “Office” Supplies Almost As Cute As Jim And Pam

Apparently, some folks over at Etsy are as big of fans of “The Office” as we are. (Did you see the season premiere on Thursday?) Case in point: we were cruising their site and came across this curated list of cute objects that each epitomize famous jokes from the show that never fails to crack us up.

When Sex Is A Weapon: Surviving Date Rape

I just found out that my rapist is dead. Not only is he dead, but he ended up killing a lot of women. I always wondered if he would rape again, but I never thought he would graduate to murder.

How Dirty Dancing Ruined My Love Life

I was 10 years old when my mother took me to the movies to see “Dirty Dancing.” I, like so many women, fell head over heels in love—with the movie, with the soundtrack, and most definitely with Patrick Swayze. I loved that movie so much that when I couldn’t sleep at night I used to recite the movie in my head line by line.

Yoko Ono’s Drawings And Texas-Sized Hair At Threeasfour

This Fashion Week we went backstage at a number of shows, and the makeup artists and hairstylists we spoke to were calm, cool, and welcoming even when there was only an hour or so before the models had to be dressed and ready to walk down the runway. The atmosphere backstage before Threeasfour, however, was a little different. Who knows what caused the storm — maybe the complicated makeup that required absolute precision to apply or the fact that celebrities were involved in the show — but it was tense back there. The lead makeup artist and hairstylist were wonderful once they were able to step away from their work to chat, but they had their hands full. Thirty minutes before the show was to begin, someone came back and announced that hair and makeup was to be complete “AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE” so the models could get into the clothes. And, just as I was leaving, I bumped into Sean Lennon, who was being interviewed and photographed like mad, adding another element of excitement to the scene. (I also thought I saw Yoko Ono, but now I’m pretty sure it was just a cute, middle-aged Asian woman.)

The reason for Sean Lennon and Yoko Ono’s presence was because Threeasfour designers Adi Gil, Angela Donhauser, and Gabriel Asfour were inspired by Yoko Ono’s dot drawings for the spring 2010 collection. Some of the drawings were turned into prints and used on elements of the collection. The dot theme extended to the makeup, too. Check it out, after the jump! Keep reading »

Our Top 15 Fashion Week Favorites

The New York leg of Fashion Week is over and our tired out feet are grateful. Hours on end of hustling from show to show in the sort of heels whose prettiness punishes gets a bit tiring, after all. But now that the tents are being dismantled and the designers shifting focus from finishing samples to selling their wares, we’ve got a bit of an empty feeling building in our stomachs. Having seen all the loveliness to come for Spring, going through this long cold winter won’t be too easy. In order to make it through, we’ll focus on our favorites and maybe switch to Ramen now so we can save up and buy a frock or two when they roll into stores…

Celebrities Flocked To Ann Taylor’s (?) Fashion Show

Fashion Week isn’t just a time for crazy-expensive brands that are out of most people’s price ranges to show what they have coming down the pipeline. Besides the fine looks we saw from Snuggie, Ann Taylor also hosted a show, attended by important editors and celebrities, including Elle‘s Joe Zee, Vanessa Williams, Gretchen Mol, Mena Suvari, Amanda Bynes, Kelly Rutherford, and more.

The clothes shown weren’t what the retailer will be selling come spring 2010, like most shows. Instead, they were items that are available right now. While the whole thing was a marketing ploy to get more people interested in Ann Taylor clothes, it might have worked. Vanessa Williams admitted to being a fan of the dress she wore for the event, which fit her off the rack, and Katherine McPhee told WWD she loves their accessories.

We Are Completely Braid Obsessed

Being obsessed with braids is not easy because, despite numerous attempts, I cannot figure out how to french braid my own hair. Braids should be such an easy, chic way of styling your locks when you want to look pulled together, but don’t have time for a blow out. Luckily for me, the braids that look the most modern are those that are a little messy, so if I ever make any progress on my tutelage, perfection won’t be required. Keep clicking to see a ton of celebs getting their braid on.
