My friends and I have always loved Beyonce’s figure — and specifically her thighs — because she has more of a real body than most super stick-thin celebs. We call her legs tree trunk legs because they’re muscular as hell. You’d figure all that dancing and bootyshaking she does means her stems are pretty strong. So why in the crap did Harper’s Bazaar make her legs up and disappear? They seem to have been whittled down into two insignificant toothpicks.
It’s a Tuesday in October and it has been unseasonably warm the last few days. Indian summer? Global warming? Whatever. Check out what we’re wearing today!
Dressing up with a pal is almost always better than going at it alone. That’s why we’ve assembled an array of great double-trouble pair costumes for you and your BFF to trick-or-treat with this Halloween!
You guys know I have a soft spot in my heart for Courtney Stodden, the teen bride who tweets almost exclusively in alliterations and singlehandedly keeps the frosted lipstick industry afloat. I also happen to think she would make the ultimate hot mess Halloween costume. The look requires very little in the realm of actual clothing, but I must warn you that it is physically demanding — a Courtney Stodden costume is not complete unless you’re teetering around in 8-inch platforms and giving fierce duck face all night.

Upton won the contest in a landslide, but in a catty and rather unprofessional move, American Apparel wrote Upton an open letter that rescinded her win.
After a slew of bad press (I mean, what were they thinking?), American Apparel relented, and flew Nancy out to their Los Angeles headquarters for a meeting to discuss how Nancy thought American Apparel could be better marketing to plus-sized women. And … everybody’s happy now?

When we were in high school, our love lives were kind of pathetic, which is why when we were supposed to be paying attention in class, we were actually doodling and daydreaming about the day Jordan Catalano would wizen up and realize that Angela Chase could not only help him learn to read, but also rock his world. You know, on “My So-Called Life”? Harken back to those carefree days of obsessing about fictional romances by daydreaming and doodling with these Teenage Power Couple pencils. Our only qualm with this set — <i>Dawson</i> and Joey? Ugh. Any fan of the “Creek” knows Pacey was way hotter. But that’s another post…
