Style Stealer: Gwyneth Paltrow Is Simple And Sophisticated In B&W

I know I poop all over Gwyneth Paltrow and her lifestyle newsletter GOOP on a fairly frequent basis and that some of you don’t, uh, agree with me. To each their own! The thing is, I am able to put aside my personal distaste for GP and acknowledge that I absolutely love her style. With very few exceptions — the Alexander McQueen getup that made her boobs look like chicken cutlets, for example — I think Gwyneth looks flawless every time she walks out the door. Last week’s appearance on “Ellen,” for example — I adore the simplicity of this black and white outfit, especially because it is so easy to replicate on any budget. After the jump, the three keys pieces you need, all under $100, which means you’ll have money left over for that salade niçoise you’ve been craving. Keep reading »

Asking Super Personal Questions On A First Date Is Dumb

Whoever decided that asking for someone’s ‘number’ would be a good way to find out their sexual history must really suck at dating and wants everyone else to suck at it too. Springing this question on a person is confusing and it should stop right now!

While out on the town, a guy I was seeing asked what my ‘number’ was and when I jokingly replied with 867-5309 he looked at me with disgust, walked away and I never heard from him again.

How the heck was I supposed to know that? Read more… Keep reading »

Jodie Foster: Even Women Studio Execs See Female Directors As A Risk

Jodie Foster is one of the few successful working actress/directors, so she’s the logical person to ask, “Why aren’t there more women directors out there?”

While out promoting her upcoming film “The Beaver,” Foster shrugged off the idea that Hollywood is making a concerted effort to block women from getting behind the camera.

“I don’t think it’s a plot and these guys sat around and said, ‘Let’s keep these women out,’” Foster told the LA Times. “I think it’s like race psychology. When a producer hires a director, you’re hiring away your control completely. When you give that amount of power up, you want them to look like you and talk like you and think like you and it’s scary when they don’t, because what’s gonna happen? I’m gonna hand over $60 million to somebody I don’t know.”

But even when you’re not talking about “the guys” sitting around, Foster says women execs think along the same lines. Read more… Keep reading »
