Just when you thought there couldn’t be anymore hoopla involved with getting married, the wedding industry strikes again! The WE channel, in conjunction with Cablevision, is launching a 24-7 channel on all things bridal. Because we don’t get enough of the terrifically terrible ladies on “Bridezillas” and are just dying for more shows like “Amazing Wedding Cakes” and “My Fair Wedding.” I sometimes sit and watch some of the wack job bridezillas chicks and think, Really, why are you marrying a man you are being this horrible to now? And, That’s your mother, she’s paying for all of this, let her wear what she wants! One bride-to-be (pictured, above) got out a scale and made all of her bridesmaids step on it, on national TV, to make sure they all weighed more than her. Sometimes I scream on the inside at the grooms—Get out while you can! Soon, there will wedded (non)bliss 24 hours a day. Great. [NY Post] Keep reading »
It’s times like these I wish I paid attention in Hebrew school. I have no idea what the Hebrew lettering says, but my guess is, “Leo DiCaprio wants to rub his GF in your face” or “This is why I’m hot.” Either way, it’s kind of a mystery what this ad is for. Supposedly, Bar Refaeli is promoting an Israeli art exhibition, but from the looks of it, she’s promoting erections. [Huffington Post]

Aren’t Jason Lee and wife Ceren Alkac just the cutest? [NYC, 7/1/09] Keep reading »
The August 2009 cover of Runner’s World features none other than VP Presidential candidate Sarah Palin. In the cover article “I’m A Runner,” the 45 year old Governor of Alaska talked with the magazine about her life long passion for running. As opposed to the Katie Couric interview in which she couldn’t drop the name of a newspaper she read, this interview reads quite smoothly and amazingly the woman even managed to link God’s greatness to running. My only problem: the photos portray Palin all done up and ready to run right on into a House of Representatives meeting, not the Alaska land front. But at least she defended herself saying, “When I run, I’m totally incognito because I’m not wearing the trough full of makeup. I can go running through a mob of tourists and they don’t recognize me.” After the jump, more interview tidbits fromwhat shoes Palin likes to sport to why she named her kid Track. Keep reading »
For the first two years of my relationship with my Large Greek Boyfriend, his mom didn’t acknowledge me by name. I was simply, “The Girl.”
“Are you bringing The Girl?” she’d inquire when he made plans for family dinner. “Does The Girl like spanikopita?” Being a typical dude, it didn’t register on the BF’s radar, but her refusal to eke out more than those two syllables made me paranoid. Did she not like me because I’m not Greek? Had I said something stupid during our initial meet and greet? He assured me she liked me just fine, she just didn’t want to bother learning a name if I wasn’t going to stick around.
Whatever the case, his mom’s inability to say my name paled in comparison to 28-year-old lawyer Anna’s mother-in-law. “I met her at our wedding and the first thing she said to me—her new daughter-in-law—was, ‘So, are you pregnant?’”
Annoyed, Anna told her she’d have to wait and see. Things got worse after Anna gave birth to their son (two years later, thank you very much!). “The doctor came in to ask how I was doing and before I could answer—and in front of everyone—my mother-in-law asked the doctor, ‘How much for a paternity test?’” Sweet!

Thankfully, the final weeks of my engagement have been pleasantly devoid of bachelorette parties with plastic penis products or bridal showers with cheesy games, but that doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate a beautiful toilet paper wedding dress when I see one. Don’t think a toilet paper wedding dress can be beautiful? You obviously haven’t seen the winners of Cheap Chic Weddings toilet-paper wedding dress contest. Ann Kagawa Lee of Honolulu took the grand prize for her couture-like creation (compared by some to an Oscar de la Renta gown) made from nothing more than toilet paper, tape, and glue. Her theme was “Gone With the Wind” and Japanese origami, and it shows. The craftsmanship and attention to detail is astounding — even more impressive than the coffee filter prom dress we saw last month. After the jump, check out a close-up of the hat she made to go with the dress. [via The Cut]

Gucci will release a new interpretation of its classic Jackie style (after Jackie Kennedy), along with this sexy ad campaign with Brigitte Bardot lookalike, Anja Rubik. The new, larger size takes the bag to an edgier level with versions in metallic/violet leather, brown python, and an envy-inducing green python. The collection of 12 styles comes out in the fall, even though the news broke just a few days short of the 4th of July. So, does America trump Italy in this case? [View on Fashion] Keep reading »
Teen girls should be able to express themselves. That’s the point of Beyoncé and Tina Knowles’s new juniors collection for their already established label (Déreon), called Sasha Fierce, after Beyoncé’s album character. Says Tina, “[The collection] is edgier and trendier and reflects Sasha Fierce’s daring and outgoing attitude.” Edgy is a mild way of putting the “back-to-school” looks that include curve-hugging minidresses, one-shouldered dresses, black bodysuits, and fingerless gloves and f**k-me pumps.
So far, Beyoncé has been a fairly solid role model as someone who exudes a huge amount of confidence, is sexy without being slutty, and projects a solid image of family and relationships. But, we have to ask…would you let your teen go to school dressed like this? [WWD] Keep reading »
