Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
As a bonafide klutz, I can attest to the importance of wearing flats. And patterned flats can add a little bit of interest and playfulness to an otherwise ho-hum outfit. After the jump, we give you 10 perfectly patterned options!
I didn’t think I could love Jenna Lyons, Creative Director for J. Crew, any more, but my respect for her has grown tenfold beyond just loving her work with the line. On the brand’s website, there’s a feature called “Saturday with Jenna,” featuring photographs of Lyons hanging out with her son Beckett (above). In one photo, she’s seen holding her son’s tiny feet, freshly pedicured with a hot pink Essie polish. The accompanying quote reads:
“Lucky for me, I ended up with a boy whose favorite color is pink. Toenail painting is way more fun in neon.”
For $180, Etsy artist Sheriff Nasir will paint you a custom pair of space age wedge heels. I think they’re absolutely gorgeous, but I might be more tempted to display them on a shelf than actually wear them. How about you? Would you dare to wear the galaxy on your feet?

When it comes to breakups, there are two options: to be or not to be friends with your ex. And it’s no different for celebs. Well, except that news of the breakup is in every ‘bloid and they’ll be asked about it in every interview for the rest of their lives, which is not uncomfortable at all. Despite Courteney Cox and David Arquette’s separation, David claims their friendship is stronger than ever. “We’re best friends … We’re not together. We’re still separated … We’re really honest and open … Our relationship right now is actually better than ever,” he said in an interview. I’m not even gonna pretend like I understand what’s going on with these two. But more power to them. After the jump, more celebs who insist they are besties with their exes. [People]
As you probably know, I feel a certain affinity for tigers (and sweaters with tigers on them, ahem). So when I saw this video of Shadow giving birth to her cub, I had to watch. It’s slightly bloody, sure, but hello? Tiger cubs! Plus, watching the video reminds me that tigers are becoming an endangered species thanks to hunting and human development of their habitat, so each cute little cub counts.

It’s totally cool that Lea Michele, Dianna Agron and Amber Riley are all sharing the May 2011 cover of Marie Claire and getting their own separate individual covers — for one because it annoys me when Lea Michele hogs all the buzz from “Glee,” but because mainstream women’s mags are not exactly known for putting African-American women on the cover. So, yay, for that beautiful Amber Riley cover. However! While I was reading the copy on the different covers, I noticed something wack. Lea and Dianna’s cover lines both read “on the rumors! gossip! drama!”, but Amber’s cover lines are entirely different: “I show girls how to be comfortable with their bodies.” Huh? Don’t get me wrong — I think it’s awesome that Amber Riley gets a cover and that she’s a role model for curvaceous women and girls of all backgrounds. I just wonder why Marie Claire felt it necessary to point out her body alone. [Oh No They Didn't!] Keep reading »
