Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
Guess it sucks to be named Joe Jackson right now if you’re not Michael Jackson’s dad. Keep reading »
Lately, the fashion industry has been on asymmetrical overload! Now, don’t get me wrong, this look can be uber-flattering and add interest to an otherwise boring dress or top (who didn’t love Kate Winslet or Frieda Pinto at the Oscars?). But, folks, there does come a time when asymmetry can go wrong. And that time is now. Check out these, well, interesting pants from French designer Eric Tibusch. Are they Pant-kinis, Trouser-tards? They sort of remind me of those half-man, half-lady circus acts—turn one way, you’re Lady Gaga, flip to the opposite side and, oh look, there’s Kate Moss in skinny jeans! (Also, this is totally unrelated, but the pointy blood-red nails? Do not screw with this woman, she will cut a bitch!) And these aren’t the only OTT-asymmetrical specimens out there, get a load of…
I’ve been doing the online dating thing for a while. Match, Nerve, JDate, OkCupid, you name it. Generally, I’m a fan. (It feels sort of like shopping for boys, no?) That said, there’s also a lot about it that never fails to appall me. Namely, what guys seem to think is attractive, funny, or sexy in their profiles. For some of these men, the dealbreaker can be small—that moment when you’re checking him out, and all is going well until you scroll down to see that one off-putting thing and it’s click, on to the next. Then of course, there are the all-around disaster cases where everything from the picture to the description is horrifically wrong.
>New York City: “Sex and the City” and “Gossip Girl’s” Leighton Meester do a rather swell job of capturing the essence of the Big Apple’s style: personality on heels so high you will get a nose bleed. New Yorkers get a bad rap for only dressing in the color of funeral attire, and though we do lover our black for its slimming effect and magical ability to match absolutely everything we own, Manhattan gals are known for daring color and fashion choices. Risky ensembles are rewarded if they are donned with pizazz and plenty o’ attitude. The real secret of New York style lies in the grooming. Wear what you dare, but never leave the apartment unkempt or disheveled. Chipped unpolished nails will not cut it. Un-waxed or un-tweezed facial hair may even earn you looks of disdain on the subway. Blah hair will just not do. New Yorkers do not want to look over done, but they do expect you to suffer for you beauty.
How many times have you been out with a foxy new someone only to have him do or say something that made your stomach lurch—and not in an I-wanna-make-babies-with-him-now way. Maybe he was nasty to your waiter. Perhaps it was more subtle—he snickered when you tripped or didn’t introduce you to the attractive “friend” you ran into. Then again, maybe there was nothing you could articulate, but he just felt off. How many times have you ignored that feeling?

Yay! The trailer for Ellen Page’s newest movie, “Whip It,” is out and it looks ambrosia for any stifled suburban girl, even if you’ve never broken some chick’s collarbone in a roller derby.
With Drew Barrymore, Kristen Wiig, Juliet Lewis, Eve and Ari Graynor (the drunk friend from “Nick And Norah’s Infinite Playlist”) all playing bad-ass roller skaters named Smashley Simpson, Dinah Might and Malice In Wonderland, how can you go wrong? Keep reading »
The 2009 Primetime Emmy Nominations were announced this morning and I’m thrilled that all my favorites got nods (well, except “The Bachelor,” but I’m sure that was just an oversight). “The Office,” “30 Rock,” “Flight of the Conchords,” and “This American Life” all got nominated, and “Mad Men” cleaned house with a whopping 16 nominations, including one for best drama, best actor Jon Hamm and best actress Elisabeth Moss. How did your favorites do? The complete list is here. Keep reading »
- “Real Housewives of New York City” star Bethenny Frankel is leaving that show for her own reality series on Bravo called “Skinny & The City.” [NY Post] — Good for Bethenny, but couldn’t they have come up with a better name?
- Amy Winehouse and Blake Fielder-Civil were granted a quickie divorce. According to divorce papers Blake filed, he found living with Amy “intolerable.” [AP ]
- Jessica Simpson is “sad, mad, and confused,” about her breakup with Tony Romo, said a family friend. [People] — Actually, we really feel for Jess, because it seems like Tony gave her the boot out of nowhere. But maybe now she’ll take some time off dating and just be single.
One of my favorite summer shows is “So You Think You Can Dance.” Similar in structure to “American Idol” (only it’s a competition for, duh, dancers not singers), the talent is consistently a-mazing. This season’s crop of dancers are no different. On last night’s episode, season 2 runner-up, Travis Wall, choreographed this glorious little love story for dancers Jeanine and Jason. Check it out!
