Good On Paper, “Meh” In Real Life?

We’ve all met somebody who fits the description: really, really great on paper, but not able to translate that into much of anything in person. I thought about it recently because I heard from a guy I used to date — one who is sooooo perfect on paper. He’s an attractive lawyer who owns his own house, rides motorcycles, and has a dog, but something in person just didn’t make sense for us. He was perfectly lovely, kind, considerate and thoughtful. He was also driven, ambitious, and had an adventurous spirit. But the cliche spark we were supposed to feel for each other was nonexistent. He remains a friend — and a constant reminder that chemistry can’t be quantified or tallied in abstract characteristics. And no matter how much you might want someone to be the right person for you — because they do have all of the things on your checklist — the universe has a way of telling you what you actually need.

In his downtime from being a beat poet (“Howl”) and cutting off his arm (“127 Hours”), he has been hard at work on an adaptation of the late-’70s television show “Three’s Company.” Keep reading »

No video of it exists, but she described it to People. “I was running from zits on Melrose Boulevard for a Clearasil commercial,” she said. “‘Don’t let the zits catch you!

Check This Out: Illustrations From The “Drawing Fashion” Exhibition In London

Designer sketches are one thing, but to be a fashion illustrator is another art altogether. And that’s what a new exhibition—called Drawing Fashion—at London’s Design Museum explores. The show features the works of famous fashion artists from the 1930s to the present. Some examples: the right hand image above is a print called “Fashion by Dior” done by Francois Berthoud for a 2004 issue of Numéro magazine, while the left hand image presents an illustration that ran in a 1937 issue of Vogue. The exhibit is on through March, so if you’re in London now or in the next few months, be sure to check it out! And if don’t have any U.K. travel plans on your schedule, indulge in some more images from the collection after the jump. [Design Museum via Wallpaper] Keep reading »
