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’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 »
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.

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.
