Knowd: Simply Irresistible
When Carrie Prejean lost last month’s Miss USA pageant because (some think) she opposed gay marriage, after which she did an ad for the National Organization for Marriage, rather than attending to her Miss California “duties,” she made it pretty clear where her loyalty lies. It makes sense strategically — her anti-gay marriage stance ruined her appeal for many, but it did increase her popularity with a powerful few. Prejean hedged her bets by distancing herself from the Miss California Organization and lining up with those who had her back. She wasn’t going to be a pageant queen forever, after all.
She should have handed over her crown to someone who was interested in fulfilling those Miss California duties — whatever they are — since she had better things to do. But she didn’t and because of that — and Perez Hilton’s relentless campaign against her — Prejean stayed in the spotlight and the inevitable happened. Topless photos! Of a beauty queen! Who believes in God! The hypocrisy! Let the slut-shaming begin! Keep reading »
Mickey Mouse’s ears are iconic, but they’re getting a makeover this year. To celebrate Disneyland Resort Paris’ year-long “Mickey’s Magical Party,” Disney created the My Mickey Ears project, and they’re getting famous folks and fashion designers to redesign Mickey’s iconic ears for an auction to benefit the Great Ormand Street Hospital Children’s Charity in London. Luella Bartley’s are our favorites, but we’re trying to figure out what outfit calls for Mickey ears. Some of the other ears, like Estelle’s and Pearl Lowe’s, are kind of fug, proving these women should stick to what they know best, which is not arts and crafts. [My Fashion Life] Keep reading »
Over the weekend, nude photos of (maybe?) Rihanna made their way onto the interweb. Oh, but she wasn’t the only singing sensation to get caught with her shirt off—Cassie was busted sans clothes, too. Now these two have joined a long list of teen stars flaunting their assets. Come on, y’all. Don’t you know naked pics always surface? After the jump, we expose the truth about the RiRi, Cassie, Cheetah Girl Adrienne Bailon, and Vanessa Hudgens photo “scandals.” Keep reading »
Ginnifer Goodwin appears to be pulling a Rihanna by attempting to break out of her good girl image to be a bad girl for fashion photographer Steven Klein in the latest issue of W. As polygamist wife Margene on HBO’s “Big Love,” it’s rare to see the 31-year-old “Southern belle” in anything less than the latest plural marriage fashions, but here she oozes sex in black leather and an Amy Winehouse wig while running around with a few greased up dudes showing of their 12-pack abs. In the accompanying interview, Goodwin talks about her newfound veganism, her breakup last year with actor Chris Klein, and her proper Tennessee upbringing that fostered a “prim” relationship to sex (she says she’s got “iron panties”). Plus, she reveals what she thought of the provocative images that accompany the profile: “I’m positive people don’t see me this way. They think I am Margene or Gigi. I was delighted that what I saw was so against what people would call ‘my type.’” Up next? A role in designer Tom Ford’s much-anticipated directorial debut and a turn in the movie adaptation of Beverly Cleary’s Beezus and Ramona. After the jump, some of the racy pics. [W] Keep reading »
