Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
“New Moon” hasn’t been released yet, but Twi-hards are already looking ahead to “Eclipse,” the third movie in the Twilight saga. Fans have already started speculating about Bella Swan’s wedding dress, which is described in the novel as an early 1900s design that complements her antique engagement ring. Since they couldn’t get a sneak peek of the actual dress, InStyle.com reached out to nine designers to see how they imagine Bella’s dress. I wish the designers would have included Edward Cullen’s tuxedo in their drawings, but oh well. Check out the sketches after the jump and let us know which is your favorite in the comments.
While we sometimes hear rumors about what happens on casting couches — it’s even being touted as a story line in the upcoming CW show “The Beautiful Life” — it’s not often we actually learn of someone taking advantage of women trying to make it in tough industries.
We told you all about how much positive response Glamour magazine has received from readers for the image of a nude plus-size model featured in the September issue. Lizzie Miller has since appeared on “Today” and copies of the magazine are selling out. Catherine wondered whether the overwhelmingly positive response would result in magazines, and the fashion industry, finally recognizing that beauty comes in a variety of shapes and sizes and that they would start featuring more models like Miller on a regular basis. The Sartorialist’s Scott Schuman wrote on his blog, “When I am shooting on the street older women and larger size women often say ‘no’ to my request to shoot them…. I think they have a real suspicion about how the image will be used. I also think there continues to be a growing disconnect between the fashion community and ‘average’ women in general.”
OK, so obviously, I am a woman. But sometimes I have a very hard time understanding my gender. For example, check out this pic of Jon Gosselin hosting a pool party at Las Vegas’ MGM Grand this weekend. Three hot women are totally drooling over him and his chest hair—and People says he left the soiree with mucho phone numbers. And this is in addition to Hailey Glassman, who he’s now saying is for real deal his girlfriend, and Kate Major, the journalist who lost her job over knocking boots with him, and nanny Stephanie Santoro, who some say he is getting down with, too. Am I missing something? Sure, he’s semi-reasonably attractive, though a little pudgy. Not to mention that he doesn’t have, oh, a career. Plus, he comes with eight kids and a seriously scorned ex-wife. So what’s the deal? Why are women all about him? Theories, anyone? Keep reading »
First, we had to swear off “The View” when we found out that Kate Gosselin and Meghan McCain would be sitting down at the table with Joy, Whoopi, et al. Now, “The Today Show” is gonna be off limits, too. Guess who they’ve hired to be a special correspondent, reporting a story per month? Jenna Bush. Yep, the Bush twin who made underage drinking an artform and who consistently drove her secret service detail batty. Here’s what Jenna, who also managed to squeeze a book deal out of the whole being-a-former-president’s-daughter thing, had to say about her new gig. “It wasn’t something I’d always dreamed to do. But I think one of the most important things in life is to be open-minded and to be open-minded for change.” Uh, Jenna? Your puppy didn’t just die—you just got the ultimate cushy gig hosting on one of the most popular shows on television. If you’re not feeling it, I could find you, uh, thousands of broadcast journalism majors who’d be down. [People] Keep reading »
I really hate shaving my legs. Then again, does anyone actually enjoy this activity? No matter what, I end up with a few nicks and bleeds. As for Nair? No way I would put up with the smell. And waxing? Forget it. Ouchy. So these doo-dads piqued my interest while I was in the drugstore the other day. (And weirdly, I realized that Smooth Away has been doing a ton of advertising in my neighborhood with posters at bus stops. Guess I was swayed.) But really, who isn’t interested in whether these things really work or not? The verdict, after the jump!
