Here’s the thing. Caroline Kennedy, currently waging a solid campaign to take Hillary Clinton’s soon-to-be-vacated Senate seat, is a lot like Sarah Palin: not such a bad idea when you consider the alternatives. Analysts and anonymous Republican staffers may hold Palin single handedly accountable for the downfall of John McCain’s presidential campaign, but that criticism discounts how much sway she had over the conservative base in November’s election — and how little any other nominee could have changed the results of the 2008 vote. Other rumored candidates for the VP slot — Joe Lieberman, Elizabeth Dole, or Kay Bayley Hutchison — may have earned more polite commentary from the media, but a respectable loss is still a loss.

Sofia Coppola’s a busy lady these days. Not only has she been designing bags for Louis Vuitton, but Coppola also directed a commercial for Dior’s Miss Dior Cherie fragrance. It has a jealousy inducing I’m-fabulous-and-live-in-Paris-in-the-’60s vibe to it. If this is the kind of life I’d live if I wore the perfume, I’ll buy myself a king-size bottle and play Brigitte Bardot’s song “Moi Je Joue” on repeat. [Fashionista] Keep reading »

In the latest issue of Interview, Lindsay Lohan sits down for a tête-à-tête with 70′s supermodel Lauren Hutton. So says Hutton, “She’s got the bones of a flamingo and the spirit of a gladiator.” From dodging paparazzi to high-speed car chases, Lohan declares being a celebrity ain’t easy: “I just feel as though it’s become a situation where people have manifested this caricature of who I am, and they act as if there’s no real person inside of it.” On the perils of fame, Heath Ledger advised her that it’s all a game: “It’s build you up to knock you down, and that’s all it is. And you just have to see if you can stand through it.” As for her relationship with SamRo, Lindsay doesn’t say much, other than, as a Cancer, “in relationships I’m screwed.” [Interview] Keep reading »
People have been doing it since the dawn of time. In fact, it’s the alluring, torrid, mind-blowing, all-consuming sex explosion that has spawned our entire existence as a species! While over the years, thanks to technological and social advances, we’ve improved upon the original biological need with things like latex, handcuffs, key parties, dirty talk, and general smut, what went up, must now come down.

Only 170 of New York City’s 46,000 taxi drivers are women, according to the city’s Taxi and Limousine Commission. “Because of security concerns and the solitude involved, driving a taxi is less attractive to women,” said Alfred LaGasse, executive director of the Taxicab, Limousine and Paratransit Association. In other countries, women have begun working as drivers to increase levels of safety. Pink Ladies, a London cab company formed in 2005 after a girl was murdered by someone posing as a taxi driver, now has a Moscow branch. Other similar operations are popping up in countries such as Iran, the United Arab Emirates, and India. The whole girl-driver thing is such a good idea and reminds me of the “escort service” we had in college. Wouldn’t it be nice to get into a cab and know you’d get home safely, even if you’re three sheets to the wind? [Women's ENews] Keep reading »
