Remember when we posted about men wearing skirts and some of you were concerned that guys’ legs are just too hairy to carry off the look? Well, Project E-MANcipate! has a solution: mantyhose. At the forefront of E-MANcipate!, a project “to accelerate the acceptance of male pantyhose as a regular clothing item,” is a push for hosiery manufacturers to create pantyhose designed specifically for men. “Don’t buy female pantyhose at all,” the E-MANcipate site urges. “Don’t strengthen those companies who don’t produce/sell male pantyhose. Buy male pantyhose. Do help with your purchasing power to those who are on your/our side.”
So, why are the men behind the project so adamant in their desire for mantyhose, so urgent in their need for others to join their side? The site gives three main reasons, listed after the jump… Keep reading »
With Guy Ritchie and Madonna making their divorce plans official, you know that ho (as always) is going to turn to music to get her through it. Since she’s supposedly has A-rod waiting in the wings, her recovery period will probably only last a couple pop songs. Luckily, Madge won’t even have to search for tunes to express how she feels, since she already sings them! So here is our suggestions for Madonna’s Break Up Playlist featuring songs by Madonna.
“You need so much but not from me/Turn your back in my hour of need/ Something’s wrong but you pretend you don’t see/ I think I interrupt your life/ When you laugh, it cuts me just like a knife/ I’m not your friend, I’m just your little wife.” — ”Till Death Do Us Part” from “Like A Prayer”
This song from 1988 (during her marriage to Sean Penn) is all about a wife wishing her husband loved her more. Sigh, unlike the empowering hit on this record, “Express Yourself,” which encourages a woman with “don’t go for second best, baby!” This song, a mere 2 tracks down, has the woman going back to her blasé husband. Is there still a future for Madonna and Guy? Or will Madonna follow her own advice and “do much better baby on your own?”

Diane von Furstenburg’s Holiday 2008 collection is inspired by Wonder Woman, meaning there had to be a comic book to go along with the clothes. The limited-edition book “Be The Wonder Woman You Can Be: The Adventures of Diva, Viva and Fifa” is published by DC Comics, so it’s legit, and proceeds from the sale of the book will benefit Vital Voices, a non-profit dedicated to empowering women. Check out pages from the book here, then go out into the world and “Be the Wonder Woman You Can Be”; Wearing a DVF wrap dress while doing so is optional but will earn you bonus points. Keep reading »
Well, it’s official. Madonna’s longtime publicist, Liz Rosenberg, confirmed in an email to the Associated Press that the mega-star and her director husband, Guy Ritchie, are splitting up after rumors of marital strife for years. Rumor has it that Madonna and Alex Rodriguez are indeed romantically involved, but we’re kind of wondering who Ritchie will date now that his eight year marriage is kaput. The pair are aiming to have the divorce finalized by Christmas — who should Ritchie set his sights on for 2009? We have a few ideas…. Keep reading »
Before Michelle Obama appeared in a Thakoon dress at the Democratic National Convention, the designer had no idea she would be wearing one of his creations. “I saw her on TV and I couldn’t even look, I was so embarrassed from being excited,” Thakoon Panichgul said. And now we’re embarrassed for being so excited because Thakoon has been named the next GO International for Target designer! Come December, all of your holiday party dress needs will be answered — if only finding presents for everyone in your family were as easy. [WWD] Keep reading »
Until a few years ago, I never would have considered a long distance relationship a realistic option for myself. I once dated a guy who lived on the other side of the city and that relationship was challenging enough, though to be fair, our problems probably had more to do with him being a douche bag than the 30-minute drive between our apartments, but still. Long distance relationships were what other people did — people who spent all their money on gas and plane tickets and their weeknights scouring the internet for travel deals and want ads in their significant other’s city. They weren’t for people like me, who’d rather spend money on shoes, and evenings cooking dinner with a boyfriend I could see as often as I wanted. Keep reading »
