Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
First came the sordid affairs, then the looming divorce, and now a possible lawsuit? The Pennsylvania Department of Labor is looking into claims that the Jon and Kate Gosselin are violating child labor laws by having their lil’ army of kids work 40 weeks out of the year.
While we don’t exactly know if being themselves in front of camera crews constitutes as “work,” people are pretty up in arms about the situation. After the jump, the onslaught begins. Keep reading »
Receiving an invitation to a wedding that specifies a “black tie” dress code can be rather intimidating because your standby LBD won’t cut it for this type of event. Although, “black tie” requires women to wear formal gowns, don’t let the name fool you — you don’t have to show up in head-to-toe black. If you decide to wear a color or a print, just make sure it won’t clash or match the bridesmaids’ dresses or steal attention away from the bride. Black tie attire doesn’t have to be mega-expensive, either. All of our gown choices cost less than $200.

A 51-year-old anti-abortion activist is in custody in Wichita, KS, after he allegedly shot and killed Dr. George Tiller, 67. Tiller, who had provided abortions to women for over 30 years, was gunned down in the foyer of his church while he passed out the church bulletin. [NY Times]
Some anti-choice extremists think all doctors who perform any abortions should be killed. But Dr. Tiller, in particular, was a lightening rod for controversy because he was one of only three doctors in the country who performed abortions on women in the third trimester, also referred to as “partial birth abortions.” But why are abortions in the second or third trimesters so controversial? Here are five things you’re probably asking yourself right now. Keep reading »
Chloe Sevigny was one of several celebs to hit up the Veuve Clicquot Manhattan Polo Classic today. It looks like she found this hat in a trunk in her grandmother’s attic, but it really goes with her retro suit with scalloped edges. And her exposed legs keep the look from being too staid.

Lately I’ve been getting a lot of advice. Solicited, unsolicited, much of it from female friends, most of it contradictory. Many of my female friends are in relationships, including my four closest girl friends, two of whom are married and two who are headed in that direction. They all are living vicariously through my “dating adventures,” though I’ve tried to tell them that it’s about as exciting as a bowl of oatmeal.
People give advice based on their own experiences. What works for them has got to work for you too, right? Like following a cake recipe, if you follow the right steps, you’ll get the end result you want. Except dating is nothing like baking and there’s no “right” way when it comes to matters of the heart. I watched “He’s Just Not That Into You” this weekend (out tomorrow on DVD) and if there’s a takeaway from that movies it’s this: everyone has a dating tale that is an exception to another person’s rule. Which is why all of the advice I’ve been getting has been making my head spin. Keep reading »
Ads for luxury brand Louis Vuitton generally feature the rich and fabulous, i.e., Madonna, Sean Connery, Sofia Coppola, and Sean Connery. But the latest installment in the company’s Core Values series, shot by Annie Liebovitz, features lesser-known faces whose names we learned in elementary school history lessons. The ad pictures Sally Ride (the first American woman to enter space), Buzz Aldrin (set foot on the moon with Neil Armstrong), and Jim Lovell (commander of the Apollo 13 mission). Of course, the trio just happen to have a Vuitton satchel with them as they hang out on a battered pickup truck, looking at the moon. Isn’t it nice to have a change from the typical celeb faces we see hawking products? [WWD] Keep reading »
