Pregnant Commuter Kept Track Of How Much You Suck At Giving Up Your Seat

Most of us would like to think that if we saw a pregnant, elderly or handicapped person on the train or subway, we would offer up our seat in a jiffy. But a nifty social experiment done on the New York City subway by Elizabeth Carey Smith of Brooklyn, New York, during her recent pregnancy found that while she was offered a seat the majority of the time, good manners were not guaranteed.

Inspiration Board: Mallory Keaton From “Family Ties”

The other day, I was thinking about some of my favorite fashion icons from 1980′s TV, and I remembered how much I loved the style of Mallory Keaton from “Family Ties.” She gave her suburban print sweaters and leggings and sweater dress sets an urban edginess with her rolled sleeves, cinched waists, and classic ’80s hairstyles. Let’s not forget Mallory was also the brave Keaton to date Nick, the garbage artist, who at times wore pink and purple belts at the same time. The following three looks were inspired by Mallory’s ’80s fashions, but would be completely chic today. And check out this blog, Mallory’s Clothes, which gives a rundown on Mallory’s style throughout the seven seasons.

Julie Taymor No Longer Directing “Spider-Man: The Musical”

Making fun of “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark”—the musical version of the classic comic book tale that, at $65 million, is the most expensive production in Broadway history—has become something of a blood sport here in New York. And this week brings the news that the play—which has injured multiple cast members and been almost universally panned by test audiences—is shutting down for several weeks for a major overhaul. Apparently, visionary director Julie Taymor is no longer sitting in the director’s chair. It’s unclear whether she quit in protest or was fired. “Taymor is out. She’s left the building,” a source said. Keep reading »

Gwen Stefani’s Galliano Gown Is In A Museum

Well, whoops! In this month’s British Elle, Gwen Stefani gushes about her Christian Dior wedding dress, designed by none other than the infamous John Galliano. “When I got engaged and someone told me that John said he would make my dress, I was like, really?” the star told the magazine. “I said I wanted it to be over the top, but not traditional — I wanted it to be everything. But how do you tell this genius over the phone? He was, like, OK, and sent me these drawings of this unbelievable, perfect dress. It’s going into the V&A [Victoria & Albert Museum] now. I didn’t want to send it because I was scared it would get ruined. But it’s a work of art, it needed to be seen.” Of course, this was all before the big anti-Semitic scandal broke out, but still, we imagine it’s gotta make Gwen squirm just a little.

No Movie Is Safe From Becoming A Remake

Lately, we’ve been noticing that no movie from your childhood (or your parents’ for that matter) is safe from being remade. “Annie” is being rebooted with Willow Smith in the lead role and new songs by Jay-Z. Warner Brothers is currently working on a remake of “The Bodyguard,” the Whitney Houston classic. Kate Winslet recently rocked period garb for a reimagining of “Mildred Pierce.” Oh, and did we mention that “Dirty Dancing” is getting the remake treatment, too? Sometimes, remakes are a great idea. Other times—and let’s be honest, usually—we wish filmmakers would leave good enough alone. So, we decided to steal a play from New York Magazine and make an Approval Matrix of all the movie remakes. After the jump, the details on these movies. In the comments, sound off on any movies you think we’ve wrongly categorized. And let us know where you’d place the remakes we didn’t include.

Britney Spears’ Leggy Photo Shoot For OUT

This photo of Britney Spears from the new issue of OUT confuses me. I feel like I’m staring at some sort of optical illusion, like Britney is just trying to make it look like she’s gripping her own leg, but really that is a mannequin leg that she stole from a department store. Anyway, check out another more normal photo — aside from the ’80-era high-cut, pubic tattoo-exposing leotard — after the jump… Keep reading »
