How To Go To A Party Alone

It’s holiday time again, which for me means lots of parties to go to … solo. My first instinct is usually to try to snag a pal to bring with me to party crash, but recently, I was invited to a party where the host explicitly instructed guests not to bring a plus one. I was dreading showing up there, thinking it would be uncomfortable, but once I arrived, I embraced it and ended up having a great time. After I deftly extricated myself from a dull conversation with an awkward woman with a neck twitch, I hit it off with a group of dudes with nerdy glasses who shared my love of stupid dance moves. Needless to say, I have a new appreciation for going to parties alone. After the jump, some tips for making the best of a stag situation. Add your suggestions in the comments. Keep reading »

Fashion Ilustrator aleXsandro Palombo Goes Too Far With Anne Frank And Hitler Art

I’ll admit to enjoying fashion illustrator aleXsandro Palombo’s cheeky commentary on fashion designers, icons, and the industry, in general, on his blog Humor Chic … at first. And I might even wear one of his “I Love Anorexia” T-shirts if it wouldn’t elicit a lecture from Jessica, but lately Palombo’s “art” has become so vulgar and controversial just for the sake of controversy. I, like Jessica, don’t see the meaning or point behind a drawing of a skeletal Rachel Zoe sitting on a toilet. It’s just crass. And I sure as hell don’t think a sexed-up Anne Frank with her 14-year-old head pointing a machine gun at Adolf Hitler’s head says anything of worth either.

What We Liked And Hated About The Grammy Nominations

Last night, the Grammy Nominations Concert tried its best to distract us from “Top Chef: All-Stars” and “Celebrity Rehab 4.” It was unsuccessful, but I did DVR the special and fast forward through it this morning. LL Cool J hosted and, nestled among the nomination announcements, there were performances by Katy Perry, an oddly old-looking Justin Bieber, Miranda Lambert, and Bruno Mars. After the jump, three things that made me happy about the 2010 Grammy lineup and three things that made me sad.

Tim Gunn And Conan O’Brien On The Nature Of Jeggings


“Project Runway” host Tim Gunn is pretty much our gay spirit dad — and what he says goes. Especially when it comes to the debatable denim-vention, The Jegging. In this clip from “Conan,” Conan O’Brien comes out on Team Jeggings while Tim is (rightfully) on the jeggings fence. And don’t even get them started on skinny jeans. Where do you stand on the jeggings phenomenon? Fab or fail? [TBS] Keep reading »
