George Clooney usually has a thing for cocktail waitresses (like his ex, Sarah Larson), but his new girlfriend is someone he can actually discuss his “craft” with. Clooney met Italian actress Elisabetta Canalis when he was in Rome and he immediately began wooing her, taking her on romantic jaunts to his villa on Lake Como. So far, we think Canalis is rad. According to The Sun, Canalis once portrayed a nun who bared her breasts in the film “Virgin Territory.” Lest you think she is a one-trick pony, she also had a role in “Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo,” and currently hosts the Italian version of MTV’s “Total Request Live.” Will this Italian beauty be the one to nab Clooney’s fickle heart?

Several folks have noted that Sarah Palin‘s words kinda sound like poetry. But William Shatner seems to believe that on a whole ‘nother lever. On Monday night, Shatner did a spoken word performance as only the master of sexy slow talk can do, and on Wednesday’s Conan O’Brien, he recited some of Palin’s tweets, proving he needed no more than 140 words to create a performance masterpiece. Oh, oh. I hope this obsession leads to romance. I would vote Palin for president if William Shatner were her vice president slash lovah. More after the jump… Keep reading »
I just got stood up. It’s sad, but true. Worst of all, it was finally the sex date. Double burn. I don’t know why this last dude left me waiting. My guess is he was either called back into spy service by the FBI or mauled by a tiger. Fingers crossed it was the latter. Just kidding. Sort of. But couldn’t he at least have had the balls to dump me, instead of just leaving me hanging? Sigh.
Unfortunately, for some reason, I get stood up a lot. I’m kind of a pro at it by now. It all started back in high school when my date ditched me the night of my senior prom. And a couple years ago, I spent a Valentine’s Day alone on my sofa in a new red dress crying to Ben & Jerry. (Although that did inspire me to make this music mix, “You Can’t F*#& The Hole In My Heart.”) So, as you can see, I’m an expert with what you should do with the night you had saved for a man who doesn’t show up to share it. Here are some options and outcomes in a handy-dandy flowchart. (CLICK HERE to see it on a larger scale.) Notice, I don’t recommend bitching him out. I’m classy like that. And you obvi have better things to do too, girl! Keep reading »
Pump genius Charles Jourdan was a leader in the shoe biz — reaching cult status in the ’60s and ’70s — until the company slowly suffered from bankruptcy and fell off the map (despite attempts by the Hilton family to revive the label). Now, thanks to Alexandra Neel, best known for her design work with Celine and Balenciaga, Jourdan will make a comeback through a seriously hotly anticipated new collection set to come out in the fall.

We know, we get it: Vampire fashion is so hot right now. But we all know human blood (or True Blood, for that matter), is a bitch to get out of silk. What’s another trend you can jump on? Circus chic. No, seriously…

The Vanity iPhone app is the latest application to confuse us because it somehow judges “beauty.” All you have to do is import a face-forward, close-up photo into the app, and it will instruct you to mark certain areas of your face, like the outline of your nose and the bottom-center of your chin. Then, you press “calculate” to have either your ego crushed or inflated, as the Vanity iPhone App judges your beauty on a scale of one to 10. The app doesn’t account for hairstyle, flawless skin, or smile because it only measures proportions, and I suspect it also ignores the fact that different races have different facial feature proportions. Amelia decided to test it out and confirmed what we already suspected — that myself, Catherine, and Simcha are all more beautiful than Megan Fox. Amelia’s dog Lucca wasn’t far behind. Our plastic wild hog was not so lucky. Worth paying the $2.99 for confirmation, though! [Daily Beauty Reporter Blog] Keep reading »
To all of you who have ever engaged in the BlackBerry versus iPhone debate, well, I hate to say it, but BlackBerry-toting owners are laughing today. It appears that the iPhone has a major flaw—it can be hacked via text messages. I know, I know, it’s terrifying. But try to remain calm. Take a deep breath and keep reading. Keep reading »
Want a new iPod? Or a Wii? Or a Fujitsu laptop? Get tested for STDs! In a new attempt to get England’s sexually rampant youth out of the bedroom and into a clinic, Britain’s National Health Service is entering folks who get tested in raffles for expensive high-tech toys and even weekend getaways. Why? Because there’s been a serious chlamydia outbreak there lately, and the disease is now the number one STD in the country. The NHS is dipping into taxpayer’s money, practically bribing folks to get tested. [Daily Mail]

We already love the young, Paris-based designer Rad Hourani’s aesthetic–which, as WWD puts it best, is all about “experimental cuts and hard-edged rocker-Goth vibe.” The $500 to $5,000 price tags? Eh, not so much. So we’re completely overjoyed to hear that Rad by Rad Hourani is coming to a store (or website) near us soon. The diffusion line will be a more reasonable $100 to $300, and, even cooler, is made up of angular cuts in a gritty black, white, and charcoal palette and designs that are unisex. (Although, it would take an unusually stylish man to rock some of the looks.) Whether it will be more of a hit with the boys or girls, we’re totally feeling the drapey yet structured feel that’s so reminiscent of Comme des Garcons, Ann Demeulemeester, and, of course, Rad himself, served up at much lower prices. The only downside? We’ll have to wait until November to get our grubby little hands on the goods. A closer look after the jump! [WWD] Keep reading »
