Damn Lily! The singer turned Chanel model showed up at a London party this weekend dripping in gratis Chanel hardware. We knew the whole chunky necklace trend was mage right now (Rihanna certainly thinks so), but this rendition is totally intense. We love it, but budget-wise, we’ll probably stick to the DIY version our own Lily recently suggested. [London, 9/07/09] Keep reading »
When something is written up in The New York Times‘ style section, it means it has hit the mainstream. For example, vampires had been hot for more than a year when the Times gave them an article on the section’s front page. The paper doesn’t jump the gun on anything, so we were surprised by the couple the Times chose to feature in its “Vows” column, even though they’ve recently included a tattooed couple and one that was married in candy wrapper outfits.

Apparently, Aubrey O’Day is a big fan of using her doggie Ginger as an accessory. She’s moved on from cutesy costumes, and is now all about dying her pup’s fur wild colors. “[Ginger] likes to have looks,” O’Day says. “It actually seems like such a taboo weird thing, but if you research online, you will see a whole underworld of dogs who are dyed. She sits on my lap, and I have a brush, and I paint it on and use foils.” She picked the green and orange colors on the left because, supposedly, Ginger loves the Boston Celtics. So which of these dog looks is the most dignified—the sports enthusiast on the left, the pink ears in the middle, or the crab costume on the right? Would you ever do any of these things to your dog?

I can’t tell if Kim Catrall is telling off a motorist while she films the “Sex and the City” sequel, or if Samantha Jones is telling a hottie exactly where to stick it. [NYC, 9/8/09] Keep reading »
Woman’s got guns. And by guns, I mean a not-too-Madonna-esque but still muscle-y set of arms. I want them. Badly. Luckily, someone hunted down her trainer to get the how-to.
(Now, I’m not promising you results, just an exercise routine—we all don’t have a White House chef and organic garden at our disposal.) According to her trainer, Cornell McClellan: “At the end of a routine of cardiovascular workouts and weight training, Mrs. Obama finishes with the “arm-shaping super set” of tricep pushdowns and hammer curls to tone her biceps.” Say what? Basically, it’s one set of tricep pushdowns using a straight bar attached to the high pulley of a cable station and then, without resting, follow that up with a set of hammer curls using dumbbells. Then, you immediately repeat the entire process until two or three sets of both exercises have been completed. And, if you’re in need of a little video help on all those moves (like me, I’m weight-training challenged), the Women’s Health magazine ladyfolk demonstrate exactly how to get Mrs. Obama’s guns, after the jump.

Today the HuffPo ran a story about “beauty indulgences” in which a writer extolled the virtues of 10 outrageously splurgy beauty products, the total cost of which clocked in just under a grand ($986 to be exact, I counted). Her point, that some products are totally worth the money, is fair enough, but having spent some time in the trenches of the beauty industry, I have to take issue with some of writer Felicia Sullivan’s recommendations.
To be fair, if you have the money to blow, I guess go for it. But if you’re feeling bad that you don’t have hundreds of dollars to spend each month on certain essentials, don’t. Seriously. Do not. After the jump, five products which it’s kind of foolish to waste your hard-earned cash on. Keep reading »
The Tila Tequila/Shawne Merriman incident of early Sunday morning is turning into a classic case of he-said, she-said. She says that she was at NFL player Merriman’s house at 3:45 a.m., when he choked her, knocked her over, and tried to hold her down. She called the police and, when they arrived, she signed a citizen’s arrest form. Merriman was taken into custody and released on bail seven hours later. [People]
But now Merriman is saying that’s not the whole story. Keep reading »
Hey, so you know how last week we were all, “Yippee! ‘Saturday Night Live’ has added two new lady cast members!”? Well today, I’m all, “Oh crap, they fired Casey Wilson and Michaela Watson?” Broadsheet wonders, “Does ‘SNL’ have a lady quota?” Good question. Keep reading »
Any lass who’s dipped her toes into the online dating waters knows after two days all the messages (and the dudes who wrote them) blur together. Newsflash: saying “Hey, I love ‘The Office’ too!’ doesn’t woo the ladies, guys.
But do you know what really peaks the interest and prompts a woman to respond? For OKCupid, it’s messages that contain the words “zombie,” “tattoo,” and “piercing.” Keep reading »
