Love her or hate her, you can’t deny the controversial impact of Ayn Rand. Just mentioning her name can illicit unpredictable and impassioned responses. When I first read and fell in love with The Fountainhead in college, I didn’t realize that becoming a Rand fan meant I was automatically an Objectivist and a heartless, self-serving Capitalist. While I do feel her philosophy lacks compassion and by no means consider myself an Objectivist, it’s still one of my all-time favorite books because of the complexity and intensity of the characters and plot.
Seems like I’m not the only one loving on Ayn. After the jump, the latest sign of Ayn Rand fever. Keep reading »

I cannot tell you how many times I’ve seen “Clueless.” I always adored Cher Horowitz’s valley girl awesomeness. And don’t even get me started on her computerized revolving closet. Obviously, I was elated to hear that Alicia Silverstone is back, at least on Broadway. The ’90s It girl is leaving her pink boa and Beverly Hills behind and hitting the stage in New York City, to play an editor’s girlfriend in the play “Time Stands Still.” I am so hoping that this is the beginning of her comeback. Let me count the reasons why. [The Huffington Post] Keep reading »

The trailer for Tim Burton’s “Alice In Wonderland” has finally come down the rabbit hole and it looks a-maaaazing. Johnny Depp, in particular, looks deliciously wicked, definitely channeling the same dark kookiness of his version of Willy Wonka. Only this time, we hope his brilliance is fully appreciated. With Wonka, he could not escape comparisons to Gene Wilder, but his Mad Hatter can only be held up against a cartoon — we’re sure he’ll hold his own. Keep reading »
These leggings are kind of making us wish for winter. Imagine them with black motorcycle boots and a slouchy, dark T-shirt dress and you’ll be imagining our uniform once the cold comes ’round. We’ve seen gold leggings before, but we’ve never seen them done this well with so much detail. These are not your standard American Apparel gold leggings. They are at least 20 times more badass.

I think we should stop sleeping together.
I’m moving in with my boyfriend at the end of the month and I don’t know how he’ll feel about us. I know you and I have known each other forever and I want you to know how special your relationship has been to me—going to London and Prague together, that time you stayed with me for a week when I had a sinus infection.
But I’m sorry, Gregory. It’s time I stopped sleeping with a teddy bear. Keep reading »
Jessica Biel must have worked pretty hard in rehearsal for her “Guys and Dolls” debut at the Hollywood Bowl later this month if she thinks she needs to drink an entire gallon of water afterward. [LA, 7/21/09] Keep reading »
So, of course, being invited to join the CFDA, the Council of Fashion Designers of America, is the highest honor an American designer can achieve. Oddly enough, William Rast, Justin Timberlake’s clothing line, and The Row, from Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, have both been inducted to the council. Is anyone else uber confused? We sorta get the Olsens. After all, their clothing line has been gaining lots of buzz since it first debuted, and the fashion set loves it for being well-made and well-designed, if a little pricey. But William Rast? What’s to love? It’s primarily known for producing denim. We need answers, and we need them now! If not, we’d at least like a CFDA invitation ourselves since it looks like anyone with a needle and thread can join. Sorry, but we had to take it there! [CFDA] Keep reading »
