It’s no surprise designers are looking to superheroes for inspiration this season. This summer saw the release of five superhero movies. Even if you don’t possess any supernatural powers, that doesn’t mean you can’t dress like a super-heroine. Put a kung-fu kick in your wardrobe by adding leather, latex, and killer heels. Adopt a super-alter ego, dress accordingly, and let your talents be your superpowers. Keep reading »
Prince William’s longtime girlfriend Kate Middleton surprised us this week in a pair of yellow short-shorts and sequined halter top she wore to an ’80s-themed charity event she co-hosted. Typically, the 26-year-old wears dresses or suits of which the Queen would approve. What else don’t we know about her?
Madame Tussauds has already started making a wax replica of her — so it will be ready when she and Prince William get married. The rumor-mill says they’ll be engaged around Christmas and married next year. Talk about pressure. No wonder Wills is losing his hair.

Guys always complain about other guys who crash their party when it looks like a lady is headed for a dance in their pants, but we girls have plenty to boo-hoo about too. Just last weekend, I got blocked by my gay BFF. He helped me coordinate my outfit; then, he totally cramped my style. While he makes for a fun partner in crime, he looks like he’s my boyfriend when we’re out on the town. I love his company, but I never should have asked him to be my escort when I went to a bar to meet up with my crush. My wing woman was already booked with a date of her own, and my replacement totally backfired. While my gaydar is so precise I could probably sell my honing skills to the military, the object of my desires clearly didn’t realize I was rollin’ with a dude who was not interested in my tunnel of love. The mere presence of another guy killed my chances. If only I’d made my bestie wear a T-shirt that read: “DON’T WORRY: I’M GAY.” Now that I’ve learned my lesson, I hope this tale of woe will be a warning to all women: Don’t let a guy who won’t go downtown on you stop your flow of oncoming traffic.

Guys like watching girls make out. When men spot girl-on-girl action, it’s like moths to a flame. This summer, there have been plenty for dudes to gawk at, seeing as being a lesbian is the new new thing. From Katy Perry’s “I Kissed a Girl” to Megan Fox admitting she fell for a stripper named Nikita, going girl gay is everywhere. But what about us gawkers? Women get the shaft when it comes to “Brokeback Mountain”-style bromances. We want to know. Does two dudes making out do it for you? Keep reading »
When I was in high school, the kids who wore the same three colors every day — black, dark black, and darker black — were the freaks. They had piercings everywhere, listened to Marilyn Manson, and smoked cigarettes in the parking lot during pep rallies. But right now, Wednesday Adams and her gang are having their day in the sun — while keepin’ it pale — as the fashion world recommends going goth this season. After all, black is a slimming color.

The trailer (NSFW language) for “Good Dick” — the tale of a video store clerk who falls in love with a porn-renting female customer — makes this movie look deeply awesome.

Sarah Palin’s lipstick has been in the spotlight ever since her speech at the Republican National Convention, where she deemed herself a lipstick-wearing hockey mom. While we’re not into the frosty pink shade she covets, we hypothesized a makeup company should market a tube of Pitbull Pink. Alchemy of Colour just released Power Pink, which replicates Palin’s look. Of course, this lipstick won’t work for Obama supporters. The company’s donating $1 from each sale to the McCain-Palin campaign. Who knew buying makeup could be so political? [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
