Quick Pic: You Go, Girl!

Rachel Alexandra was the only girl racing in the Preakness Stakes today, but she whipped the boys, becoming the first filly in 85 years (and the fifth in the history of the race) to win.

Lessons From The Fat-O-Sphere, By Kate Harding And Marianne Kirby

Oh, no! We forgot to celebrate our new favorite holiday, International No Diet Day, on May 6th!

But it’s cool. We can still score some body-image karma by grabbing a copy of Lessons From the Fat-O-Sphere: Quit Dieting and Declare a Truce With Your Body by bloggers Kate Harding and Marianne Kirby.

Both women call themselves bloggers of the “fat acceptance movement,” Harding at Shapely Prose and Kirby at The Rotund. These cool ladies critique our society’s obsession with skinny bitches and cover topics like how most diets don’t work and how women can be healthy at lots of sizes, not just when they’re Olsen-twin thin.

Maybe you want to buy it to empower a bigger woman in your life—or maybe you’re the bigger woman who wants empowerment. In any case, we’re really excited when anyone acknowledges what real women look like. [$13.95, Lessons From The Fat-O-Sphere] Keep reading »

You’re Hot. Your Mom Edits French Vogue. This Is What Your Apartment Looks Like.

Maybe the week after Mother’s Day isn’t the most tactful time to be envious of other people’s mothers, but, really, we wish Carine Roitfeld, the editor of French Vogue, was our mom the other 51 weeks of the year. Oh, if only Carine had delivered us, our apartment might look more like daughter Julia Restoin Roitfeld’s than a “before” pad on “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy.”

Click through the pics on The Selby for Julia’s trés, trés chic abode, where all is bejeweled, furry, or white—the way we would have imagined it in our flannel bedsheet-ed dreams. Julia wears red lipstick and heels lounging on her couch! There’s a glass skull! Shoes galore! A single, artfully photographed can of Coke Zero! Top that, Bee Schaffer. [The Selby] Keep reading »

If you’ve ever spent a long night chowing down popcorn and sipping beer, you know how great the combo can be. Pub Corn made the consumption process easier by combining the two into beer-flavored popcorn. It doesn’t have actual beer in it, and apparently tastes nasty but, whatever, it’s for dudes.

From the Maxim Hot 100 Party to the Met Costume Ball to the Oscars, stars are trading bed-head for sleek and slick up-do’s that could survive a hurricane.
