One of my biggest fashion pet peeves are what Stacy London and Clinton Kelly of “What Not to Wear” call “fancy jeans.” That’s any pair of jeans that are bedazzled, painted, embellished, or appliqued in any way. I find “fancy jeans” offensive. But these “cum wad pants” take “fancy” to a whole new level. WHO and WHY? [The Clearly Dope] Keep reading »
“Baby was definitely kicking a lot during the song portion of the show. Little dancer. … With my child, I think I will just thank them. It’s sort of been a protection. It feels like a protection against all the hoopla and the part that keeps you centered where your meaning is and what is actually important in the midst of shiny stuff that’s superficial.”
—Natalie Portman says that, in the end, she didn’t mind the morning sickness during awards season and thinks being pregnant for it was a good thing. Man, she is always so wise. Let’s just hope she does not fall victim to the Oscar curse. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
In a classic episode of “Sex and the City,” Miranda has an epiphany: A guy may “just not be that into” her.
Miranda was thrilled with this revelation. She can now stop being anxiety-ridden over a man’s mixed messages. She can now shrug and say, “Well, he’s just not that into me,” and move on. Women everywhere sighed with relief … or did we? Keep reading »
As this was the “young and hip!” Academy Awards, host James Franco took advantage of that new fangled thingy called the internet and posted photos online as the event was happening. My personal fave of his photos was this one, featuring an insanely baked looking Franco, a deer-in-headlights Oprah, and a so-perky-we-could-slap-her Anne Hathaway. [Who Say] Keep reading »
James Franco and Anne Hathaway are the youngest hosts of the Oscars, ever—it’s a stat that’s been repeated over and over again since it was first announced that the two would be taking on hosting duties. But, uh, how did they do? I’d give Anne an A- for being friendly and charming, and for taking beaks from her scripted dialogue for off-the-cuff moments. Meanwhile, James gets a C for having stank face throughout the whole show. Also, was it just me, or did he seem to be squinting to read the teleprompter an awful lot? Homedude looked like he needed glasses, or like he’d jumped on the Pineapple Express in the green room.
After the jump, we grade the dynamic duo on some of their best and worst moments. Keep reading »
It’s time again for “Dear Wendy Updates,” a feature where people I’ve given advice to in the past let us know whether they followed the advice and how they’re doing today. After the jump, we hear from “In Love, Maybe,” who had a great vacation fling in a foreign city that she hoped might turn into something more. “Once I got home, everything seemed dull without him,” she wrote.”The life we’d jokingly talked about having together sounded good. We started emailing a little. Without saying anything about it, I’ve started learning his language and saving money to go back.” After the jump, find out what happened when she did finally go back.
