I’ll Go Commando Before I’ll Wear $40 Cotton Underwear

I read (and by “read” I mean “look,” as there aren’t many words to begin with) Lucky religiously every month. For the most part, the clothes featured in the magazine are outside my price range (at least at full price), but I always get something out of the issue. I’ll discover a cool new beauty product or get ideas for styling a new outfit out of the clothes I already have. When I cracked open the February 2011 issue of the magazine (with Nicole Richie on the cover), I learned something truly shocking: Some people actually think it makes sense to spend $40 on a single pair of cotton brief underwear.

French Vogue Wants Your Little Girls

It’s not unusual for little girls to have an innocent romp in their moms’ closets every once in a while. But what happens when the closet they’re romping in happens to belong to French Vogue? French Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld must have really wanted to go out with a controversial bang. In the latest issue of the fashion magazine, the outgoing editor included a fashion spread–called “Cadeaux,” which means “gift” in French–starring a bevy of way underage girls, all dolled up like come-hither Lolitas. It’s no surprise that young models sell magazines; just look at the latest crop of Eastern European model teenagers for proof. But still, it’s a little unsettling to see a band of 8-year-olds decked out in high-class couture, mimicking older, more experienced women. And what’s really shocking: the designer clothes seem to hug the bodies of these little girls, making us wonder just who these clothes were really made for, anyway. Check out a couple more images from the spread after the jump–and tell us what you think. [Gawker] Keep reading »

An Open Letter To Taylor Swift After Being Dumped By Jake Gyllenhaal

Dear Taylor Swift,

I heard that you and Jake Gyllenhaal are kapput. I could have called that one from a mile away. I don’t mean to pour salt in that gaping wound, but we all knew it was just a matter of time. US Weekly is reporting that you are “devastated” that Jake kicked you to the curb because he was “uncomfortable with the attention” and “could feel the age difference.” Eh. Whatever. I guess that makes sense. Jake is almost 30 and you are barely of legal drinking age. Keep reading »

Old-School Wednesday: Salt-N-Pepa Make Us Wanna “Shoop”

“Extreme Couponing” Thinks It’s Genius To Hoard Toilet Paper


Remember the woman who eats toilet paper from our new favorite show “My Strange Addiction”? Well, guess what? I have totally found her new best friend! Above, meet Amanda, who appeared on a recent episode of TLC’s “Extreme Couponing.” She has an entire room in her house filled with rolls of toiler paper. But instead of shaming Amanda for what is essentially hoarding the stuff we wipe our asses with, this show seems to be, well, celebrating her obsessive frugality. So cool, uh, indeed.

“I’ve never had a girlfriend or a boyfriend … Even with surgery, I’ll never be a woman. And I will not be man. I’ll always be the middle… My father said I’ll always be his little black boy. That he’ll love me if I am man, woman or dog. My mother is very religious. She refuses, but says she will not leave me.”

– Lea T., who was born Leandro Cerezo Medeiros, starred in last season’s Givenchy ad campaign and has even been booked to appear on Oprah’s last season. [Quem via Racked] Keep reading »
