“Blue Valentine” Gets NC-17 Rating Overturned

We’ve been gearing up for the Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams movie, “Blue Valentine,” for ages now. And so we weren’t happy when the movie was given an NC-17 rating due to an implied oral sex scene. What this means, in the grand scheme of things, is that the Motion Pictures Association of America (MPAA) hates female sexual pleasure. And indie filmmakers. And indie actors.

But luckily, they just overturned their decision, which means I take back those mean things I just said about them. But I’m still skeptical of their intentions. Keep reading »

Style 911: I’m Meeting My Boyfriend’s Parents At Their Holiday Party

My boyfriend had the bright idea to introduce me to his parents for the first time at their annual holiday party. Fortunately, the party is taking place at their home so it’s more casual than formal. Unfortunately, I have no idea what to wear. Please help me! – Beth

Wow! That’s a doozy. You’re meeting your boyfriend’s parents and all their family and friends on their turf. If there ever was a time to be impressive, now is that time … not to put any pressure on you. I’ve found that “casual” means something different to everyone. Someone might wear a pair of pajama pants for a casual meeting. While for me, “casual” means jeans and heels. So I’ve found that in most “casual” situations it’s best to be slightly dressier. That way you can blend in with the crowd regardless of how they’re dressed. Of course this isn’t the only advice I have for you, Beth. After the jump, find some specific outfit suggestions for meeting your boyfriend’s parents and attending their holiday party. Keep reading »

Doll Hoarding Is Very Scary

I usually watch “Hoarders” every week as an incentive to clean my apartment and throw unnecessary crap away. Every once in a while, one of the hoarders really gets to me. A couple of moths ago, it was Sir Patrick, the leprechaun hoarder. This week, it’s Susan, the doll hoarder. After her “doll house” was cleaned out, over 1,000 dolls were found to be living there. They even had a “doll parade” so she could see them all and decide which ones to keep and which ones to get rid of. When extreme cleaning specialist Matt Paxton (that’s him up there bravely diving into the doll pile) posed the question “How would you like to die under a pile of dolls?” I shuddered. Answer: I would not like to go that way. I haven’t been able to shake the thought since. Very scary indeed. Watch the entire episode here. Keep reading »

Ask The Man Panel: On The Fringe

This week, in response to a reader request to have the Man Panel review “something that normal people would actually wear,” I decided to get their thoughts on this fringed shawl cardigan from Forever 21. Personally, I’m a huge fan of the current blanket sweater trend, because it’s the next best thing to cutting two arm holes into your down comforter and wearing it to work (something I’ve considered on more than a few chilly mornings). But let’s see what the men had to say …
