Everyone’s favorite new shopping mecca (well, for us Americans anyhow), Topshop, has released images from its Autumn/Winter ’09 lookbook. So far, we’re loving the collection that’s pulling some brave styling moves (combining animal and flower prints; pairing bra-tops with blazers for an evening look), as well as bold structures and forms (baggy harem-meets-equestrian pants; multicolored fringe dresses). Overall, the line communicates different style adventures–depending on how you wear them–ranging from updated 80s to Euro-chic. In other words, it’s eclectic. And ya know what, we love it!
We also got a look at designer Emma Cook’s Topshop capsule collection, set to hit U.K stores near the end of the month (…and we hope online for us! Please?).
After the jump, check out more looks and please weigh in: Do you adore or is it too crazy cuckoo? Keep reading »
MTV‘s “16 and Pregnant” was a hot mess last night. Catelynn and Tyler are really sweet, smart, loving, mature kids who want the best for their baby, but their mom and pops are pretty screwed up. Mom is a drunk driver; Tyler’s dad is an ex-con. And, their parents are married. Yeah, Catelynn and Tyler are boyfriend and girlfriend, soon-to-be teen parents—and step-siblings. Wait, is this “Jerry Springer”?
Watch the kids tell their parents their choice is to give their daughter up for adoption because they both want to go to college—and how their parents try to convince them to raise their baby in this bats**t family instead. [MTV] Keep reading »
Why haven’t celebrities like Jennifer Lopez learned that you should never, ever, ever eat a popsicle in public unless you want juvenile bloggers like me to make blow job jokes? [NYC, 7/16/09] Keep reading »
So basically, Kelly Bensimon went on a shopping trip with The Daily Beast for stuff she already owns. (Gold $370 Gryphon shorts? Wore them to a Kim Kardashian party! “Sexy rocker chick” miniskirt from Intermix? It’s already packed for this weekend’s trip to Miami! An “Alaia meets Pocahontas” belt? Just snapped it up!) Seriously, every photo she’s in, Kelly’s pawing a dress or an accessory that’s presently hanging in her closet. So what’s to talk about then? If you ignore the actual “shopping” part of the shopping trip, Kelly offers up some of her usual nuggets of complete and utter nonsense. Gems after the jump! Keep reading »
We hear about relationships torn apart by internet porn addiction, but where are the support groups for smut-loving women like me, who suddenly and inexplicably get turned off by porn when they fall in love? Before I met my boyfriend, I was visiting youporn.com about a half an hour a day, hunting through dozens of clips to find the one most perfectly calibrated to turn me on.

Remember back in 2007, when NASA astronaut Lisa Nowak drove 900 miles overnight while wearing a diaper so she could confront Colleen Shipman, who was messing around with Nowak’s maybe boyfriend, fellow astronaut Bill Oefelein? Well, Nowak has completely lost this war. Not only did she lose her job and have the whole world find about her penchant for soiling herself in the name of love. But now, Oefelein has proposed to Shipman. The two lovebirds are getting hitched next summer. Keep reading »
There’s a 2-minute documentary worth checking out on the Sundance Channel’s website called “Not Pretty, Really.” The short film is part of a series called “The Art of Seduction” and explores some of the trials and tribulations of beautiful people. That’s right, you guys — it’s super hard being good looking!! Sure, there are the occasional perks the participants in the documentary acknowledge, like free pitas from Pita Pit, rides in private jets, and being paid to sit in windows of fancy restaurants to attract other diners, but the beautiful people want others to know it isn’t always easy being so hot. For example, it gets “frustrating” when people come up to you ALL day to tell you how beautiful you are! And you can never be the “funny girl,” or the “smart girl,” or the “interesting girl” when all anyone sees you as is the “pretty girl.” And sometimes people stare at you like you’re an object! Oh, and other times people just ASSUME things about you like you’re conceited or not smart. One pretty girl even suffered the trauma of people gasping when she won an English award in school! And still, other women have had to be friends with only gay men because they’re the only ones who don’t constantly objectify them. Gosh, I never realized just how hard some people had it… Keep reading »
