When Bad Photo Shoots Happen To Good Celebrities

bruce emma 061609 m jpg
It’s been a few days since the issue hit newsstands, but I am still so creeped out by this photo spread in W Magazine of Bruce Willis and Emma Heming. Is this supposed to be alien S&M porn? I get why W wanted these images in their mag—to drum up zillions of articles and blog posts like this one—but what about these shots possibly seemed like a good idea to newlyweds Bruce and Emma?

Oh, sweet photographer sadism, these aren’t the only two to pose in seriously questionable pictorials. Keep clicking for our favorite ill-advised celebrity photo shoots.

Take A Ride With This Guy? Um, No!

He’s got the tricked-out car, the electric guitar, and the frosted perm. But would you go for a “personal tour” with this dude? Probably not. While he does have a sick Ferrari, he can only fit one other person in it while he’s driving, so we’re guessing this ad is his ploy to get some poon from a brain dead gold digger.

Wear Big Hats This Summer—Without Looking Like The Queen Mum

Big hats are often placed in the little-old-British-lady-at-a-garden-party category. Not anymore! They are the chicest chapeau to wear if you want to look properly polished while making a serious style statement. If you are bold enough to wear one, that is. Be warned—these wide-brimmed, bright-colored and flowered-covered numbers are not for wallflowers. Here’s a few things to keep in mind:

First, big hats with wide brims are a great way to enforce a personal bubble. Just make sure you don’t accidentally knock someone over every time you turn around. Second, keep the rest of your look simple. Think solid colors dresses with classic lines and a subtly detailed clutch. Fabulous hats are a whole lot o’ look on their own. Pairing a hat with a clean and fresh outfit is an easy way to be fashion forward rather than costume-y. Last but not least, wear it as if you just made it big at the Kentucky Derby. You will certainly look like you did! Keep reading »

Products That Promise Beach Hair In A Bottle

Uh, we don’t know what’s going on in your neck of the woods, but here in NYC the weather gods have decided to piss on our summer fun. Literally. It’s like living in London, except without all the fun double-decker buses and tea times. We’re not getting to the beach anytime soon and we’d cry ourselves a river over it were it not for these products that at least let us pretend that we’ve been happily bopping around the beach. Put the wavy surfer-girl look back into your locks with these aids. Apply to damp hair, scrunch with your fingers, and allow your hair to dry naturally. If you’re in a hurry, use a blow dryer with a diffuser, blowing hot air up into your locks.

  1. John Master’s Sea Mist is organic, using real sea salt in the mixture to get an authentic texture. [$15.95, Vashonorganics.com]
  2. Kusco-Murphy Beach Hair gained fame for its use on Sports Illustrated swimsuit models. Bamboo and other natural ingredients work to produce volume, texture, and strength. [$35, Bigelowchemists.com]
  3. John Frieda’s Beach Blonde Ocean Waves spray is tough to find, which is a shame, because it’s one of the best products out there. The super strong texturizer uses sea water and oil for a feel that’s pretty darn close to the real thing. [$69, Stuff4beauty.com]

(Sperm) Size Matters

Size may not matter in the human world, but when it comes to other animals and insects, giant sperm is the way to go, especially if the creature has a tiny body. A mussel-like animal that lived 100 million years ago produced sperm that was longer than its body. Even today, there are animals making large sperm. A fruit fly can produce a 2.5-inch coil of sperm, even though its body is only a few milliliters. To equal the same sperm to body ratio, a human would have to produce sperm 40 meters long. Ostracodes, an extinct ancient class of arthropods, also produced long sperm. With these findings scientists have concluded that giant sperm production is a proven, evolutionary tactic for successful reproduction. Creatures can increase the chance of fertilization with a larger sperm cell. [Reuters] Keep reading »

Trailer Park: “The Proposal,” “Year One,” And “Whatever Works”

It’s a big week for action movies. Not. Sure, this week’s new releases won’t get your adrenaline pumping with big explosions or elaborately-choreographed chase scenes. But they they will take you on a trip into Alaska, ancient times, and Woody Allen’s brain, respectively. It’s beautiful outside (unless you live in New York), but it’s also kinda hot, so get yourself some movie tickets and soak up the theater AC. Here’s a look at this week’s movies. Keep reading »
