What Do You Remember About Your Worst Breakup?

Sept. 14 marks the year anniversary of my ex deciding to take a break from our relationship. (Which means it’s also the one year anniversary of his relationship with his subordinate! Congrats, you two!) Can you believe I’ve been writing about this s**t for a year? Even though it feels like it went by in the blink of an eye, I also realize it took a while to realize how much better off I am; there were definitely times where I felt like I would never feel happy again.The thing is, I remember so many details about that day. First I had brunch with my friend Lise from high school at Thor on the Lower East Side. I had eggs Benedict; she had an omelet. Then I went to a little shop a couple blocks away (I still shop there) and I bought a dress — black tank-style, with a red, cream, and black abstract flower pattern on the skirt. I went to get my nails done — OPI’s Lincoln Park After Dark was the shade. Then I went to Whole Foods and I bought stuff to make for dinner. I was going to cook some weird combination of sausage, red peppers, feta cheese, and whole wheat pasta based on a dish my friend Teri had concocted. I never actually made it that night, of course. All of these details are ingrained in my brain, but I suspect I’m not alone in remembering so much minutiae from the day of my worst breakup. What random details do you remember about the day of your worst heartbreak? Keep reading »

Artist Jenny Holzer Creates Temporary Tattoos

You may be familiar with the work of Jenny Holzer, whose word-based public artworks have become ubiquitous in our culture. One of her most famous projects, projected across the side of a building, features the phrase, “Protect me from what I want.” Her themes often tackle womanhood, war, and consumerism. Now, the Whitney Museum has taken Holzer’s truisms and turned them into temporary tattoos you can wear, and which, if applied, would, technically, make you a work of art. Choice sentiments range from “In a dream you saw a way to survive and you were full of joy” to “Turn soft and lovely anytime you have the chance.” [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

“Twilight” Porn Spoof Is For Hardcore Fans

Jon & Kate Plus XXX
The Gosselins get the porn spoof treatment. Ugh. Read More »

Vampires, virgins, and porn are an obvious trifecta, so it should come as no surprise that a major adult film company, Devil’s Film, is putting out a “Twilight” porn spoof. Mega popular porn star Jenna Haze stars in this hardcore send-up of the emo vampire movie, out Oct. 15 (beating “New Moon”‘s arrival in theaters!). Getting Haze to star in your porn is like getting, oh, Kate Winslet to do your little movie because it gives it instant credibility. As for the plot? No word yet, but something tells me Edward probably shares his blushing Bella with the super horny Cullen clan. [Examiner, Film Drunk] Keep reading »

Quick Pic: Brad & Taylor Actually Do Love Each Other!

I basically had a hernia when I encountered Brad and Taylor (from “The Rachel Zoe Project”) while out and about at Fashion’s Night Out. The twosome were having a grand ol’ time — The Zoe was nowhere to be found — and there didn’t sem to be any of the trademark tension seen on the TV show. In fact, Taylor couldn’t wait to plant one on Brad’s cheek when I begged them for a photo. Highlight of my evening. (Style Note: Brad was wearing his signature bow tie and white patent leather wing tips. Copycatting him ASAP.) [NYC, 9/10/09] Keep reading »

How To Sleep Like Betty Draper

If you’re like us, and you love all things “Mad Men,” from the plots to the characters to the looks, you may have noticed the bed that Don and Betty Draper share on the show. Totally retro, it’s got a soft green button-tufted headboard fit for any suburban princess married to a mad, mad ad man — or, you know, you. While the bed on the show was created by set designer Amy Wells, Club Furniture has a similar sleeper for “Mad Men” lovers. Custom-made in North Carolina, the look-alike bed doesn’t come cheap — it’s $1,100 to $1,350, depending on size. (Oh, it’s on sale for just under a grand today!) I like the Sky blue, but the company will use any fabric you desire. Sadly, Don Draper is not included. [L.A. at Home] Keep reading »

Who Is Grace Coddington, The Red-Haired Star Of “The September Issue”?

Those of you who’ve already seen “The September Issue” know that while the documentary sheds light on Vogue‘s normally inaccessible editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour, the real star of the show is the magazine’s creative director, Grace Coddington. And now that Fashion Week is upon us, we’ll be spying on her in the front row every day.

The 68-year-old woman with the witchy red hair isn’t a household name like her boss, but “The September Issue” shows that Coddington is an essential cog in the Vogue wheel (Wintour calls her “our jewel in the crown”). The film made us curious about the creative director who spoke intelligently about fashion, a subject many consider to be fluff. Click through to learn more about the woman who is arguably the most influential stylist in fashion today.
