Excuse Me, Anna Wintour Is Calling

RJ Cutler’s Vogue documentary, “The September Issue,” comes out in New York at the end of August (when the Sept. 2009 issue will be hitting newsstands). After watching the trailer last month, we’ve been obsessed with Anna Wintour’s clever, biting style of criticism and can’t wait to hear more along the lines of, “This type seems so large and pretentious. It looks like it’s for blind people.” Until then, we’ll settle for these new ringtones. While Anna would never in a million years call us, the “Anna Wintour’s office” ring makes it sounds like her people are calling us! We’ve never felt so important in our lives.

Emma Watson And Marilyn Manson Team Up For “Cinderella”

It looks like the gorgeous and uber-talented Emma Watson will not be forever typecast as Hermione Granger. Her next role will be in a musical version of “Cinderella” with (dun dun dun) Marilyn Manson! Manson will be the producing the film, but there’s no word on the director yet. Watson will be singing and acting in the flick, which will be her first film outside of “Harry Potter.” Because I’m not counting the TV movie “Ballet Shoes” or “Tales of Despereaux.”

Doesn’t this sound like it should be a Tim Burton movie? I’m hoping Manson will be playing the evil stepmother and not the prince, ’cause if Emma gets taken under Manson’s spell and goes goth like Evan Rachel Wood, I’ll be heartbroken! Stay strong Emma! Resist the patent leather! [NY Daily News] Keep reading »

Crave: The Pulpwood Queens’ Tiara-Wearing, Book-Sharing Guide To Life (Win One!)

When Kathy L. Patrick got laid off from her job, she opened Beauty and the Book, a combination beauty salon/bookstore. Shortly after, she started The Pulpwood Queens of East Texas, a raucous reading group that requires its members to wear a tiara, hot pink, and leopard print outfits (and now has chapters around the country). This part-autobiography, part-advice book, part-reading list will remind you that good things can come after crappy life events — and that a little silliness goes a long way. [$11.89, Amazon]

We’re giving away five copies of The Pulpwood Queens’ Tiara-Wearing, Book-Sharing Guide To Life, but you have to work if you want one. The five best commenters for this coming week — from today, Friday, July 17 through Thursday, July 23 — will be awarded with one. So, be as clever, smart, and original as you can!

Is Rihanna’s New ‘Do Hot Or Not?

I knew it had been way too long since she last changed it up. Check Rihanna out, or should I say, check it out—the new mop-top, completely shaved sides, mohawk-esque ‘do. If you ask me, there’s only one person right now who pulls off the whole shaved half-head trend and it’s this lady, above. It just works—the avant-garde fashion, the shades, the what-the-eff-you-looking-at-beyotch look. Love everything. Especially, when we are all inundated with perfectly turned out stars with their perfect-mussed-up beach curls and perfect Rachel Zoe-styled red carpet clothes. She’s real. (And, speaking of, how great would the hair look paired with some super frothy, ethereal dress—a very yin and yang juxtaposition.) What say you? Keep reading »

The Eight Rules Of Rebounding

Jon and Kate Gosselin announced their split less than a month ago, and Jon certainly didn’t waste any time getting with a new girl. Meanwhile, Kate continues to wear her wedding band. Is Jon cruel for moving on so fast, or is Kate just slow at accepting the fact that her marriage is over? This got us thinking about our rules for rebounding the right way. Keep reading »

Marriage Is Changing, Whether It’s For Better Or For Worse

While many fear that America is falling out of the marriage habit, and that, these days, all is bad in love and more, new stats show otherwise. Supposedly, 86% of women marry by age forty. This says something, considering that a 20-year-old article in Newsweek declared that “a 40-year-old single woman had a better chance of being killed by a terrorist than getting married.” Ouch.

“Miami Social” Represents Humanity At Its Most Tan & Vapid

So I finally got a chance to watch the first episode of Bravo’s new trashtastic reality series, “Miami Social.” Is it just me, but do they make a special breed of horrendously shallow human being down in Miami? No offense to Floridians in general, truly, as I love your beaches, Cuban food, and old people, but the folks on “Miami Social” make me want to gouge out my eyeballs. Not that I will stop watching of course. Anyway, above is a clip featuring the first episode’s “best” moments from cast member Ariel. After demanding a “fat girl” with “tarantula hair” be removed from his table, he marvels at how horrible it must be to be an ugly girl. You see, being an ugly guy isn’t so bad, but an ugly girl? Can you IMAGINE?! Ugh. The only thing Ariel can give us insight into is what life is like when you’re ugly on the inside, where it counts. Keep reading »

My Beef With Jersey (Sheets)

Not long ago, we told you about how American Apparel introduced a new line of jersey bedding. My first thought was innnn-teresting. Next brainwave: Why the hell do I want a set of jersey sheets? Sure, jersey sheets (t-shirt sheets for those not trolling the aisles of Bed, Bath & Beyond on their Sunday mornings) are insanely affordable and can feel (when they’re new) like the inside of a just-purchased sweatshirt before the first wash—but I just can’t get into them. For two reasons… Keep reading »

French Vogue Cover Looks Like A Sears Catalogue

Even the ever-gorgeous Daria Werebowy can’t save the cover of this month’s French Vogue from looking more like a catalogue than a high fashion magazine. Where experimental makeup and avant-garde outfits usually reign, now there’s only garish Burberry plaid and khaki. And a bucket hat. The whole thing is so boring and un-fashion-y that we thought it was maybe a joke, the cover of the next Bloomingdale’s catalogue masquerading as the glorious fashion tome that [usually] is French Vogue. Sadly, it’s legit. [Maybe Carine meant it to be ironic? Or they just really owed advertiser Burberry a fave.-- Editor] Keep reading »
