Quick Pic: Bend It Like Ellen

While taping an interview with David Beckham, Ellen decided to add some (posh) spice to her show by surprising him with this spoof of his hot Armani spread. The episode will air later this week, but until then, I will kill time by Photoshopping myself onto half-naked Becks’ pecks. Swoon! [Burbank, CA, 8/31/09] Keep reading »

Rumors Swirl That Chelsea Clinton Will Get Hitched Any Minute

And the New York Post believes that it will be happening any second—a reporter saw a ginormous stage being built on the property Bill Clinton supposedly rented on Chappaquiddick island.

Whitney Houston: The Greatest Album Of All?

I fell in love with Whitney Houston the first time I saw the “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” video. I stuck with her forever, through “The Bodyguard” and “Just Whitney.” But circa 2000, we hit a bumpy road as her marriage with Bobby Brown got seriously rocky and the rumor mill seemed pretty convincing that she was having drug issues. Then there was “Being Bobby Brown,” and no one ever thought she’d come back from discussing Bobby’s poop. But finally, she’s put out a new album, I Look To You, out today. The album is a collaboration with music mogul Clive Davis, and features ditties from the likes of Akon, R. Kelly and Alicia Keys. And, phew, the reviews look good. Here’s what the critics are saying.

Fashion! Disaster! Miranda Kerr Temporarily Blinded By Perfume

At a Victoria’s Secret “Heavenly Enchanted” perfume launch this weekend, Victoria’s Secret model and girlfriend of Orlando Bloom, Miranda Kerr, was temporarily blinded when former “Bachelor” and “Dancing with the Stars” cast member Melissa Rycroft “accidentally” sprayed perfume in her face. Apparently Melissa felt really bad for handicapping the Australian model. [NY Post]

It’s really hard not to laugh when bad things happen to beautiful people. (Do you think it’s funny when models fall on the runway?) Luckily, YouTube users have made a sport of compiling clips of fashion disasters. Hopefully, Miranda is doing better. But in the meantime, we’ve found some other OMG model moments. Keep reading »

Quick Pic: “O” Is For Outrageous

Karen O is a style icon to many, no doubt, but we just don’t really see this whole onesie diaper for grownups with extra socks and leggings look–which she sported whilst performing at the Reading music fest this weekend–catching on. [Reading, UK, 8/30/09] Keep reading »

Steven Meisel Sure Likes His Models Dirty

What is going on with all this dirty chic nonsense? Craig McDean shot a huge spread for the September 2009 issue of W magazine highlighting the stylish side of homelessness (yeah, wtf), and now legendary photographer Steven Meisel has carried the theme over to Italian Vogue. In fact, Meisel shot not one, not two, but three covers featuring Anna Jagodzinska, Will Lewis, Ash Stymest, Jamie Bochert and, of course, Sasha Pivovarova. (Pivovarova had a starring role as the Dior tissue paper-clad bag lady in McDean’s W shoot.) On each cover, the models pose in pairs or trios clad in luxurious clothes that are made to look worn and makeup that makes them look like a troupe of dusty, thirsty vagabonds. Beyond being perhaps the dirtiest cover to date, this triple issue is also distinct for using male models on the front, a rare practice for Italian Vogue. [Design Scene] Keep reading »

Rumer Willis Bakes Pies, Cries On Command


This morning, Rumer Willis stopped by the fourth hour of “Today” — otherwise known as the hour that Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee get drunk and talk to “stars” that aren’t famous enough to be on the show during the first three hours when more than just bloggers and unemployed people watch. Anyway, it seems someone gave Rumer a job — a role in a horror movie called “Sorority Row” (at first I thought it was called “Sorority, No,” which would have been a more appropriate title) and she was on the show this morning to promote it (sporting a pretty weave, I might add). From the looks of the trailer, I’m guessing the flick is going to go straight to DVD, and I can’t imagine anyone was shocked when Rumor admitted she’s never had any formal acting training. Still, Kathie Lee seems sure this is all the beginning of a “terrific career.” And if things don’t take off with the acting, the self-described “Betty Crocker” can always go into the pie-baking business. So, is anyone going to watch her movie? Keep reading »

Guy Skips Out On Bill, Then Steals His Date’s Car. WTF?

I was sure I had the trophy for “Worst First Date” in the bag, after I went out with a guy who, within the first five minutes of meeting, told me, “You’ve got great cans.” I felt like karma had worked its magic when, two minutes later, a pigeon pooped on him. But a woman in Detroit totally has me beat. She met a dude at a casino (something should have told her this wasn’t a good idea) and agreed to go out with him a few days later. She picked him up, and the two went for a (romantic?) dinner at Buffalo Wild Wings. When the bill came, he said, “Oh, I think I left my wallet in your car.” She gave him her keys to go retrieve it. Only, he never came back. He not only skipped out on the bill—he stole her 2000 Chevy Impala. This dude goes on trial on Thursday, and faces five years for unlawfully taking the car. We think they should tack on an extra year for giving dudes a bad name. [Yahoo News] Keep reading »

Did You Wear Makeup As A Little Girl?

If you spend enough time in Sephora, you’ll see some disconcerting things, like booger-y children sticking their fingers in tubs of lip gloss, or gross grownups abusing their communal lipstick-testing privileges. But a few days ago while strolling around the makeup store, I witnessed a sight I’ve never seen: a woman (I assume she was the mom) swiping blue eye shadow on a young girl who must have been about four years old. I’ve seen lots of kids with painted nails out and about, but never little girls wearing adult makeup.

Not to sound like an old grump complaining about “the kids these days,” but eye shadow on a four-year-old? Really? Isn’t that a bit young? Playing with makeup never appealed to me when I was a little girl myself, though, so perhaps I just don’t understand. Keep reading »

Quick Pic: Kim Kardashian, The Kween Of Darkness?

Kim Kardashian rarely looks like she could go by the name Azriel or Budgie. So I’m kind of digging her super goth look in this image from the September issue of YRB Magazine. What do you think? I might be reaching for some black lipstick of my own. [YRB Magazine] Keep reading »
