Lindsay Lohan Wants Marilyn Monroe’s Role In “Some Like It Hot” Remake

It’s quite obvious Lindsay Lohan thinks of herself as the second coming of Marilyn Monroe. Lindz has donned Marilyn-inspired looks for not one, but two expensive photo shoots. She even has a quote from “Some Like It Hot” tattooed on her wrist. Now she wants to take her obsession to the next level by playing Sugar Kane Kowalczyk in “Some Like It Hot,” a role Marilyn made famous. Director Brett Ratner, however, isn’t having any of that.

Crave: Kiehl’s Rare Earth Pore Minimizing Collection (Win One!)

We’re not quite sure where Amazonian white clay has been all our lives (oh, right, in South America), but now that we’ve met, never shall we part. If you have oily skin or even a troublesome T-zone, you dread these hazy mid-summer months when the humidity peaks and causes a minor catastrophe in the form of greasy skin, clogged pores, and the subsequent breakouts all over your face. Enter the new Kiehl’s Rare Earth Pore Minimizing Collection (in stores next month), which, frankly, has saved the day. If you want frilly, perfumey product, then move along, but we’ve been road-testing this combination, and it works. Really. First, you wash with their gently exfoliating Deep Pore Daily Cleanser, rinse with Refining Tonic to remove excess oil and re-balance PH-levels, then mattify with Pore Minimizing Lotion, which makes your skin look all perfectly porcelain doll-ish. And for those evenings when you need a more serious detox, bust out the big guns: Their Cleansing Masque contains signature ingredient Amazonian white clay (note: it’s fairly traded), along with natural, absorbent bentonite (clay) and soothing aloe vera. Basically, we haven’t come across a better hangover helper since discovering Bloody Marys back in college. [$20.50 - $28, Kiehl's]

We’re giving five winners the entire collection–yup, all four products–but you have to work it if you want one. (PS: We truly recommend this for normal-tending-oily-to-full-on-oily-skin types.) The five best commenters from Friday, July 31 to Thursday, August 6 will win a set of their own. Click HERE to read the official rules. Keep reading »

Are You Offended By The C-Word?

In the latest issue of Rolling Stone, singer Rob Thomas says c**t is his favorite word, explaining, “I say it only around men, but I love it. C**t is in Chaucer, in Shakespeare! I say, Let’s bring it back!”

In “The Great List Of Super Offensive Controversial Words,” c**t is probably in the top five. (Look, I can’t even write it in full here.) In fact, I would venture to say that for many people, it is number one. It’s in my top five, but not on the same list. C**t is one of my favorite swear words ever, though I use it fairly sparingly, and am always aware of my audience. (In other words, not in front of my mom.) I just like the way it sounds. However, my inclination is to be bothered by Thomas’ use, mainly because he’s a man. But why is that a problem? Women call men “dicks” all the time. So what’s the big deal with dudes using the c-word, and is it better or worse to use it only around other guys? I analyze this to death, after the jump… Keep reading »

Whoa! We Spend A Lot On Alternative Medicine

The National Institute of Health announced this week that Americans spend $34 billion annually on alternative medicine. That’s a whole lot of duckets we’re slamming down on echinacea, zinc drops, acupuncture, etc—all treatments that the American Medical Association doesn’t really endorse, though people swear by them. It sounds like a ton, but we wondered: how does this stack up to what we spend annually on other health, wellness, and beauty items? [ABC News] Keep reading »

OK! Fakes A Cover. Nine Other Magazines Guilty Of The Same.

oksimpson 073109 g1 jpg
The cover of OK! Magazine this week show’s a photo of a toned Jessica Simpson out for a jog, along with the words, “How I Lost 10 Lbs In 10 Days.” The cover proudly displays a “before” and “after” picture of Jess. Too bad the “after” picture was actually taken in 2007 and the before pic is, well, pretty recent. For shame, OK! Did you really think no one would notice? [Gawker]

The thing is, magazines BS their covers all the time. Check out some others who are guilty of this kind of cover slight of hand.

Sneak Preview: Dior Joaillerie’s Skull Bling

Time and death were the inspirations behind Christian Dior‘s latest line of uber-opulent jewelry. Dubbed the “Kings and Queens Collection,” these luxurious accessories, designed by Victoire de Castellane, are crafted from opal, jade, and obsidian. The stones are then sculpted into skulls complete with ornate, blinged out crowns and collars. The garish heads are meant to represent the passing of time and the coming of death, while the sparkling crown and collar remind us to enjoy every moment. This time around, we sort of don’t see what’s so hot about this haute piece. [I strongly disagree. They're gorgeous and I'll take two please! -- Editor] Especially not when the rings, which are meant to be worn two at time, will surely cost a fortune. [D'oh! -- Ed.] We’re assuming this isn’t necessarily in your budget, but in case it is log on to Dior‘s fine jewelry website for details on where to buy — then call us for dinner!

Group Tries To Set World Record For “Mattress Dominoes”

Apparently, all you have to do to break a world record is tip over a mattress. OK, well, lots of mattresses. And you physically have to be on top of them as they fall. A group of employees at Bensons for Beds in England has done just that. The 41 participants are awaiting confirmation from the Guinness Book of World Records, but they think they’ve set the record for the largest game of mattress dominoes ever played. And since there is no other documented and submitted game of “mattress dominoes,” there’s a pretty good chance they’ll win. Thankfully, the group not only sent their video in to Guinness but also posted it on YouTube. Please enjoy their awesomely creative take on a classic game. With a surprise twist at the end!

Face Off: How To Tell If You Work At Abercrombie Or American Apparel

Dov Charney, American Apparel’s oft-sued CEO and general pervy slimeball, is at it again. This time around, he’s been accused of discriminating based on looks. Again. Apparently, one of his store managers tipped off Gawker, saying that Charney sent out a memo requesting that those employees not genetically blessed enough to hold up American Apparel’s aesthetic standards be fired. With all the time he spends sexually harassing dozens of employees, we’re surprised the dude even has a minute to actively discriminate based on looks!

But seeing that he has, in fact, made the time for the important things, we too will take time out of our day to make fun of him for it. With that in mind, check out our “How To Tell If You Work For…” chart, in which you’ll find every indicator you need to decide whether or not you do (or should) work for American Apparel or Abercrombie & Fitch, a company entirely different aesthetically but similarly besieged for discrimination legally.

Visit the site to find extra-high voltage AC/DC Chucks in sizes that will fit men, women, and even Europeans! Kids, however, are SOL, meaning that Kingston Rossdale will be so freakin’ put out.

Quick Pic: Tyra Banks Gets Held Back In Modeling 101

Bad pose, gaping mouth, ugly shoes, and Tyra isn’t even “smiling with her eyes.” At least I don’t think she is, but I’ve always been confused by that “skill.” [NYC, 7/30/09] Keep reading »
