Unlikely Style Inspiration: “Mildred Pierce”

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 »

What’s With Reese Witherspoon’s Smile On The Cover Of Vogue?

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 »

15 Famous Ladies Who Make Me Proud To Be A Four-Eyes

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.

Adele Meets Britney In “Rolling Till The World Ends”

Ever wonder what would happen if Britney Spears took Adele to Da Club for a dance off? I have a theory. Britney would start dancing, natch, and Adele, in her proper English accent, would be, like, “Bitch, I ain’t no dancer, I’m a singer. I’m turning this into a sing off!” And then while Britney gyrated and sweated to the hot beats, Adele would sing her ass off, and the whole thing would look and sound something like this mash-up of Adele’s “Rolling In The Deep” and Britney’s “Till The World Ends.” I thought it was just in my fantasies, but apparently not. Thank you, Jarod Ripley, for making my pop music dreams come true. Keep reading »
