This Month In Lady Mags: Starting Anew In January

So it is almost 2011 and it is time to accept that. The lady mags have already done it, ringing in January earlier than the rest of us. And it looks like they must have made some New Year’s resolutions to lose weight, because all the issues have slimmed down this month. We’re talking about almost comic book proportions. That means it is extra important that you read on and check out which reduced-size mag is worth your cash. Because no one wants to start the new year by spending foolishly. Keep reading »

David Arquette Is A Man On The Verge Of A Nervous Breakdown

David Arquette’s verbal diarrhea needs to stop already. As we’ve already surmised, he’s having a nervous breakdown and talking about it on the air again. While appearing on the “Howard Stern” show again on Wednesday, Howard asked him straight-up, “Are you having a nervous breakdown?” What he said next was way TMI. Keep reading »

Crystal Renn Models For Zac Posen Pre-Fall, The World Wonders About Her Weight Again

We’re beginning to wonder if the size debate surrounding model Crystal Renn will ever die down. She’s been hailed a plus-size icon but keeps stunning audiences with her fluctuating weight. For her latest work, she modeled for Zac Posen‘s pre-fall 2011 lookbook and can hardly be called plus-sized by these photos. We become more and more confused as to whether we should be praising Renn, or critical when she loses weight. (In the end, we don’t mean to make judgments, bash, or use her as a global example; it’s just that it’s hard to not talk about it.) In these pics, she’s not stick-thin, and it feels almost stupid that we can praise just that. But … she does look very svelte, especially in a pose where she wraps her hands around her entire waist … can anyone do that besides incredibly thin people? [Vogue UK] Keep reading »

On Tuesday night, Diddy threw a party in the penthouse of a New York City hotel to celebrate the release of Last Train to Paris. In the bathroom, Diddy had set up oodles of candles around a bathtub, and many of the party’s guests congregated there, including Fabolous and Trey Songz. All was well, until a model leaned her head back … and her hair sparked flames. Conveniently, the whole thing was caught on camera. “Fab was the first person to see the fire,” someone says in the video. “We put it out as quick as we could, I can honestly say.” Still, the fire department was called. Which made Diddy rub his temples and say, “It’s crazy, but everything is under control.” Following the incident, Diddy has been banned from the hotel. [Fox News]

Now obviously, fires aren’t funny—they can be disastrous. But when they are put out quickly and no one gets hurt, past a model’s hairdo, they can be mildly amusing. After the jump, other strange celebrity fire incidents.

The Secret Is Out: “Comfort” Shoe Brands Actually Make Cute Kicks

Thanks, New York Times, for outing one of my top fashion secrets—”comfort” shoe brands like Aerosoles and Naturalizer. (OK, to be fair, if this is a NYT story, then it’s not like they were a secret to begin with.) These companies have, in the past, had the rep for being the shoes your mom and grandmother wore: austere suede and leather things with obvious added comfort soles. Basically, at one point, they were what you might think of as fancied-up orthopedic shoes. But slowly, these brands have been changing their tune, and adding hipper styles to the mix. Now you might walk into one of these stores to find super comfy versions of trends like motorcycle boots, lace-up wedges, and the like.
