Mulling over the list of the 2009 Emmy Nominations released earlier today, I felt pretty good—Tina Fey and “30 Rock” pulled in 22 nominations, and “Mad Men” reeled in 16. “Lost,” “Flight of the Conchords,” “Weeds, “How I Met Your Mother”—they were all there. But I was flabbergasted to find that my beloved “True Blood” was nowhere to be found. I thought for sure this had to be a typo, but upon further inspection, I noticed a few other glaring omissions. After the jump, the categories we wish the Emmy folks would add so that all of our favorites walk out of the awards ceremony with a statue. Keep reading »

Who knew a pubic wig could be so chic? Thanks to Trend de la Creme for pointing out the merkin’s influence on high-fashion, with pubic shaped cutouts and panels showing up on designs from Kostas Murkudis and Alexandre Herchcovitch. I’ve yet to see one of these strut past me on the street, but the first lady who does, will get my award for fashion bad ass. Keep clicking to see more… [Trend de la Creme] Keep reading »
The editors of Harper’s Bazaar had an interesting idea for their August issue—get Lauren Conrad to sport a brunette wig for 24 hours. Not sure what the point of this was exactly—did they intend it as a prank or some lame-o social experiment? In the end, the California girl totally wasn’t feeling her brown hair, even though I think it looked kind of fantastic. “Day to day, I can only do blonde. Everything else makes me look sort of plain-Jane,” she told People.
Wait, being brunette makes you a plain Jane? God, I am so over this whole blondes-have-more-fun thing. Here are ten reasons why I’m a happy card-carrying member of the brunette club… Keep reading »
Amy Winehouse isn’t looking too shabby. Could she actually be on the road to recovery? Two days ago, she finally left St. Lucia after an 8-month long vacation. When she stepped foot back in the U.K., she started crying. It’s not clear if they were tears of joy or misery, but either way, they were coming out of a much healthier looking face. Also, she’s settling her divorce with soon to be ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil! Keep reading »
Terry Richardson, the celeb fashion photographer famous for his brute sexuality (and, coincidentally, your mother’s least favorite person), will now be immortalized as an action figure. The half-foot tall vinyl doll shows Richardson doing what he does best—taking off his pants and holding a camera. You’ll probably have to comb the black market (i.e. Ebay), however, if you want one. The extremely limited collection from Uncle York includes 30 reproductions, only 15 of which will be available for purchase on August 2nd at 2 a.m. (CET). We’d like to officially lobby for a full range of fashion action figures. Why not, considering the fashionistas are inspiring comic books now? Anna Wintour and Karl Lagerfeld dolls next, please!

No one can accuse Miss Rachel Zoe of lacking style street cred. The ultimate of the fashionista clan, Rachel is responsible for some of the best red carpet looks seen in the digital era. While all of her fabulous clients, and indeed they are all fabulous, constantly top the charts of the best dressed lists, the look is somewhat generic. All of Rachel’s girls look put together and fashion forward, but it has been a long time since I have seen anything “bananas” from her. While the usual blond wavy hair, loads of accessories and bold colored mini dress look is perfect for the fashion challenged or fashion phobic, we truly hope she leaves some celebs styles alone. We certainly hope Rachel was not meeting with Jessica Alba on business matters as I do not wish the stu Keep reading »
Guess it sucks to be named Joe Jackson right now if you’re not Michael Jackson’s dad. Keep reading »
I’ve been doing the online dating thing for a while. Match, Nerve, JDate, OkCupid, you name it. Generally, I’m a fan. (It feels sort of like shopping for boys, no?) That said, there’s also a lot about it that never fails to appall me. Namely, what guys seem to think is attractive, funny, or sexy in their profiles. For some of these men, the dealbreaker can be small—that moment when you’re checking him out, and all is going well until you scroll down to see that one off-putting thing and it’s click, on to the next. Then of course, there are the all-around disaster cases where everything from the picture to the description is horrifically wrong.
Here, some examples (both hilarious and bizarre) of online dating dealbreakers. For the ladies out there, let us know if you agree. For the guys, take notes. Please. Keep reading »
