Do Not Want: Graeme Armour Frill Shorts

As fashion lovers and huge proponents of creativity in general, Opening Ceremony has been a fashion mecca for many years. The retailer could do no wrong, in our opinion — or so we thought. Enter the Graeme Armour gold lame leather ruffle shorts. A hint (if you need one) that something won’t look good on a normal person is if they look atrocious on a model (which, these, in fact, DO). We are unclear as to the reasoning behind an article of clothing such as this, and wonder in all sincerity, if the designer was trying to play a cruel joke on us all. It’s just that with a sale price of $1,340, we are not laughing, at all.

If you think the front is bad, take a look at the back after the jump, and then tell us — would you wear these or anything like them, and if so, where?

Should IMDB Show Actors’ Ages?

So apparently, the Writers Guild of America has been petitioning IMDB to remove birth dates from the profiles on their site. Why? They argue that for actors, having their real age out there could be damaging by making them seem unrealistic to casting directors for roles a few years older or a few years younger than their actual age, when there wouldn’t be bias if their age wasn’t easily accessible. They say the same is true of writers—that having their birthdays available on the IMDB could lead to age discrimination. Keep reading »

Lady Gaga Does Her Part To Convince Me To Go Back To Bikram Yoga

See this photo? It’s Lady Gaga. Doing Bikram yoga. At my bikram yoga studio. Well, it was my bikram yoga studio back when I used to actually, um, go. Now that I know there’s a chance I could be sweating my face off next to Gaga — and that her sweat might flick onto me — I may just have to motivate to start up again. Keep reading »

Have You Ever Had An Inexplicably Fractured Friendship?

So apparently Oprah Winfrey and Whoopi Goldberg didn’t speak for several years after starring in “The Color Purple” together. According to the pair — who spoke about their distanced friendship on today’s “Oprah” — their standoff ended after Whoopi spoke with Oprah on the set of “For Colored Girls…,” which Whoopi’s currently starring in. Whoopi asked her, “Did I do something to you?” And Oprah admitted that she thought she had done something wrong. Both thought the other one was mad, but neither knew what to do about it — for years. It seems ridiculous that two such powerful and famous women would both be so paralyzed to fix a fractured friendship. And yet! Women (and it does seem to be a distinctly female thing) seem to do this all the time — a small bout of silence turns into a cavernous, deep rift. Have you ever had a friendship break down over a similar kind of miscommunication? Keep reading »
