Jennifer Lawrence cemented her status as an adorable klutz when she fell up the stairs on the way to accept her Oscar for Best Actress. But her televised tumble was somehow also kind of graceful and gorgeous, wasn’t it? Tumblr user i-nsan proved that point by re-envisioning J.Law’s embarrassing moment as a striking ad for Christan Dior, designer of beautiful, if easy-to-trip-on gowns. Don’t be surprised if you see this in next month’s Vogue. [Tumblr]
This spread in Numero magazine is a headscratcher. Why did they hire a white model and cover her in brown makeup instead of just hiring a brown-skinned model? Or is she supposed to be a white woman in Africa who is, for some reason, Tanning Mom-level tan? Numero likely knew that photographing a 16-year-old white girl in heavy brown makeup, wearing colorfully printed clothing, next to the words “African Queen” would get people upset about blackface. And it worked. [Clutch Magazine]
Yup, this L’Officiel Hommes magazine cover shows exactly how that baby girl growing in Kim Kardashian’s belly got made, in case you were unclear.
Although let’s be real: these two fuck with like, 17, mirrors surrounding them. [Huffington Post]
You know that giant wall of flawlessly folded, neatly stacked towels at Bed Bath & Beyond? The one that makes you feel like maybe there is some kind of order in this crazy, unpredictable world we live in? Well, as you can see, those perfectly folded towels aren’t perfectly folded at all–it’s just one towel crammed into a folded towel-shaped facade! Did you just gasp? Me too. Hopefully Amelia understands that I will need to take the rest of the day off to emotionally process this devastating news. [Neatorama]
I will always and forever love Juliette Lewis for her early roles in movies like “What’s Eating Gilbert Grape” and “Natural Born Killers.” But, however, hell to the no when it comes to what she’s doing here. Between the dyed red hair, the awful stone-washed jeggings and the baseball cap — even her dog is giving her the side eye of disapproval. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
Next time you’re feeling like your 500-square-foot studio is unbearably cramped, take a look at this photo of a “cubicle apartment” in Hong Kong. The Society for Community Organization took overhead photos of these miniscule living spaces to draw attention to the fact that over 100,000 people currently live in these tiny apartments, which are created by subdividing small apartments into smaller and smaller ones. See more photos here, but if you’re claustrophobic, you might want to grab a paper bag to breathe into before you click. [Via Neatorama]
See, even Michelle Williams has to deal with that awkward stage between having a pixie cut and… not having a pixie cut. It’s pretty cool that she’s choosing to wear the length as is (which is admittedly kind of Kate Gosselin-esque, no?) without going the extensions route, which she could so easily do. Don’t worry, Michelle, you still look adorable! I’d still marry you, and that Jason Segel lad, too! Take me in as your concubine! I’ll meet you in Red Hook! Creepy? Creepy. [Photo: WENN]
Chloë freakin’ Sevigny in some clothes she found in your grandpa’s attic, everyone! Listen, this is not a look I would choose for my own, but you gotta love Chloë for wearing consistently bizarre, ill-fitting garments and still managing to remain one of the foremost “It girls” of the past two decades. Nobody is ever really like, “Chloë Sevigny looks so weird.” They’re just like, “Oh, that’s Chloë Sevigny.” I truly aspire to reach that point one day, where I’ve been so consistently weird for so long that people don’t even think I’m weird anymore. Wish me luck!
I couldn’t place my finger on who Michelle Williams looks like on the cover of AnOther magazine until — damn! I got it! Mimi from “The Drew Carey Show.”
Only Michelle and her sweet face make electric blue eyeshadow look demonstrably less evil. [AnOther]
Well, what do we have here? Allow me to introduce you to Banana Joe, this year’s Westminster Kennel Club Best in Show. The five-year-old Affenpinscher snagged the trophy over the crowd favorite, an English sheepdog named Swagger. Best in Show judge Michael Dougherty said of the upset, “This little fella seemed to want it a touch more. He’s a fantastic Affenpinscher, with a fantastic face, a great body.” That he is! (I nominated him for today’s Hump Day Hottie, but as you can imagine, I was overruled.) My favorite thing about Joey (that’s what his handler calls him) is his little tongue, which lives outside of his mouth. So darling. A few more gloriously time-wasting photos of the Westminster winner, after the jump! Keep reading »
