There’s a chance of rain in New York today, but only one of us dressed for the weather. Heels help you avoid puddles by letting you walk right over them, right? How do you dress for gloomy weather?
What could make Seth Cohen and every teenage girl in America squeal at equally loud decibel levels? The fact that a one-minute-and-45-second snippet of the first single from the “New Moon” soundtrack, Death Cab For Cutie’s “Meet Me On The Equinox,” is now available online. The movie doesn’t open until November 20, but if you pre-order the soundtrack now, you can be one of the first to download the whole song during the MTV Video Music Awards this weekend. Judging from the snippet, the song has the perfect wistful vampy vibe. We’re sure the rest of the soundtrack will be dope as well since it’s curated by music director Alexandra Patsavas, the lady who made “The O.C.” and “Twilight” soundtracks so addictive. Rumor has it that Thom Yorke and Kings of Leon will also have ditties on the album. [MTV] Keep reading »
Naomi Wolf is penning her own vagina monologue: The New York Observer reports that the author of the Women’s Studies 101 staple The Beauty Myth is now writing a book tentatively titled A Cultural History Of The Vagina. But what could Wolf possibly say about our lady parts that wasn’t said before in Eve Ensler‘s play, The Vagina Monologues, Inga Muscio’s book, C**t, or Jessica Valenti’s book The Purity Myth?
Quite a bit, actually! After the jump, great moments in coochie history that Wolf mustn’t forget to include in her vagina book! —[NY Observer] Keep reading »
I can’t believe I’m saying this. I really can’t. But I have to: Freida Pinto‘s hair from last night’s British GQ event is an abomination. I can’t stand her ‘do. Her dress? Love it. Her acting potential? Amazing. Her hair? 100 percent Dolly Parton updo—stacked like a huge, frizz-ball mass atop her head. What can I say? The “messy pile” is an updo dealbreaker. Everyone gets a pass now and then, but if you’re looking to achieve an updo that’s more fresh than matronly, I’ve got a few nuggets of hair wisdom to keep in mind, after the jump… Keep reading »
I didn’t need a crystal ball to predict that the CW’s updated version of “Melrose Place” was going to be kind of awesome. It seemed like Laura Leighton, aka Sydney, was going to be the major player on the show—she was sprawled out in a chaise lounge in the center of the show’s cast promo pics, which was confusing because any “Melrose” addict knows that she died in a car crash on her wedding day back in the ’90s. Turns out that she only faked
her death, with the help of Dr. Michael Mancini, and now has come back to be Melrose Place’s landlord. She was already, of course, sleeping with one of Melrose’s tenants, David—conveniently, Michael’s son. But then, just a few minutes into the episode, Sydney was floating face-down in the infamous Spanish-tiled pool. She’d confessed to David that she’d done something “really, really bad” and no doubt she’ll become this show’s version of Laura Palmer—the season will be about figuring out who killed her. Was it Michael, who wanted to keep her from telling his wife that they’d been boning? Was it David, who was pissed she was also getting it on with his dad? Keep reading »
When I try to explain my ardor for HBO’s trashy-fabulous soap opera “True Blood” to my dude friends, they either shrug and change the topic, or question whether I’ve been writing for ladyblogs for too long and am suffering from a form of Stockholm Syndrome. Dudes just don’t dig bloodsuckers, since vampires pretty much look like girls. We prefer zombies, because we love chainsaws, flamethrowers, and samurai swords. And because, on some level, we know that besides being vehicles for sperm, our other important, if lesser, genetic imperative is to defend our loved ones from hordes of unthinking, flesh-eating metaphors for current social anxieties.

Will recreating classic fairy tales and children’s stories in photo shoots ever get old? Probably not. Photographer Elena Kalis took this amazing series of underwater photos in which her 10-year-old daughter plays out scenes from Alice in Wonderland in the clear, blue ocean surrounding the Bahamas, where they live. We’d like to take a trip down this saltwater-filled rabbit hole. [Elena Kalis via NOTCOT] Keep reading »
