This might be the perfect spring dress. The bright turquoise is fun and casual, and the interesting pleat detail fancifies the frock for cocktail parties. The origami bodice is supported by interior boning, which is great for bigger-chested ladies who know that strapless bras don’t always do the trick. As an added plus, the sash at the waist adds a body-flattering detail. While this ladylike strapless number looks like the type of high-end fashion Scarlett Johansson would sport on the red carpet, we couldn’t be more stoked about the price: $47.

“Lost” turned 100 last night, airing its 100th episode, and, go figure, last night’s show ended with a shocker/head-scratcher/WHAT? The show has always been full of horrible fathers — from Jack’s alcoholic pop to Locke’s father who went so far as to steal his son’s kidney — but last night Eloise Hawking shot her son, scientist Daniel Faraday. Why’d she get trigger-happy? After recovering from shock, the blogosphere discussed. Keep reading »

I love drinking tea, but I’m a little sassier than most tea sets. Luckily, lingerie designer Tina Tsang has created a gorgeous-yet-quirky tea service that suits the modern tea-drinking woman. Lovely legs with gold heels pop out of the teapot, sugar bathtub, teacup, and milk pitcher. The tiered dessert stand reminds me of a party girl who’s had too much fun — which is exactly how my fancy tea at the Ritz played out when I went to London on vacation, and my friends and I got reprimanded for taking photos.

Good thing we weren’t skating alongside Kelly Osbourne, or we’d knock her down and steal those sparkly roller skates. [World On Wheels, Los Angeles, 4/29/09] Keep reading »
A 31-year-old Australian politician had her legs lengthened when she was a 23-year-old lawyer. Hajnal Ban traveled to Russia for the operation, where they broke her legs in four places and stretched them one millimeter every day. After nine months, she had grown about three inches to around 5’4″. Ban said she decided to have the operation because she had been called a midget in school and believed her height would have a damaging effect on her career. We think her attitude is the only thing that would have hindered her. Keep reading »
“Capitol Hill is packed with gay staffers,” says the narrator of “Outrage,” a documentary by filmmaker Kirby Dick that seeks to expose closeted gay conservatives who publicly oppose gay rights. The film features several men discussing their relationships with various politicians, including former New York City Mayor Ed Koch, Florida Governor Charlie Crist, and former Senator Larry Craig. Dick says the mainstream media has ignored rumors about closeted gay politicians, and his film purports to expose the hypocrisy of those politicians who allegedly hinder gay rights efforts by day but benefit from the activism of others by night. All the allegations in the film are true, says Dick. “If they decide to legally come after me that will become as big a story as the film,” he said. “All it will do is help ticket sales.” “Outrage” premiered last Friday at the Tribeca Film Festival and is slated for a limited release in several cities, including Washington, D.C., on May 8.
Do you think outing these politicians will give more transparency in government? Or is coming out always a personal decision? How much privacy should politicians have? Keep reading »

Everyone’s still talking about Miss California’s gay marriage comments. Now there’s more drama for 21-year-old beauty queen Carrie Prejean. Apparently, there were some nice perks for her as former Miss California. The state’s pageant organization paid her bill for fake boobs.
Prejean received breast implants paid for by the Miss California Organization just weeks before she competed in the Miss USA pageant, confirmed Shanna Moakler, co-executive director of organization. Shanna told “Access Hollywood” that Carrie wanted breasts implants and the Miss California Organization “supported that decision.” Shanna, herself a former Miss USA and an ex-Playboy Playmate, added, “Breast implants in pageants is not a rarity. It’s definitely not taboo. It’s very common. Breast implants today among young women today is very common.” Keep reading »
