Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
Everyone’s talking about the HBO miniseries “Mildred Pierce,” based on the 1941 novel by James Cain, which ended its five-part run last night. Things really revved up when Evan Rachel Wood entered the scene, playing Mildred’s grown-up and ungrateful daughter Veda. We’re really feeling her ’30s-inspired feminine suits and tailored looks. After the jump, four dresses that conjure Art Deco, F. Scott Fitzgerald and the age of swing. (Merkin not included, FYI.) Keep reading »

Let me start this post off by saying that I think Reese Witherspoon is gorgeous, I am really into the retro-inspired look of this Vogue shoot and am psyched to see her movie — which inspired the look — “Water For Elephants.” It looks romantic and I am a cheeseball. However, I am very thrown off by her lips in this cover image. The way they’re strangely upturned at the corners, it’s like she’s trying to hold back a smile. Like she has a secret. A naughty, shameful secret. Like maybe she just farted in her very expensive couture gown and she’s hoping Anna Wintour doesn’t smell it and open a can of ice cold whip ass on her. Yep, that’s gotta be it. It’s all over her face. [Vogue’s Tumblr] Keep reading »
When I got glasses in middle school, I instantly hated them. I did everything to avoid wearing them, even if it meant looking stupid in class because I couldn’t actually read the question my teacher had scrawled on the white board and then called on me to answer. As soon as I got contacts, I made a vow never to be seen in public with my glasses again. And I lived happily ever after, with a dash of saline solution, as a result. But a few years ago, a funny thing started happening—glasses got really cool, at least here in New York. And the quirkier and more retro a pair, the better. The trend jumped to Hollywood courtesy of Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z. And now it seems like the ladies have picked it up. Here, women who’ve made me giddy by rocking a pair of spectacles. Starting with Anne Hathaway, who at least night’s premiere of “Rio” looked gorgeous in purple dress, mussed up ponytail, and a pair of major ’80s glasses. I think she really needs them, as she’s been spotted wearing a pair a few times over the years.
After the jump, more famous ladies in glasses. Notice how they seem to favor big, bold black pairs.
