There are tons of rumors about Vogue Editor-In-Chief Anna Wintour. Illustrator Lisa Hanawalt has documented the ones she’s heard (and a few she probably made up) in a series of hilarious drawings. This is my personal favorite. Check out the rest over at The Hairpin. I would wonder if Anna herself would find them amusing, but I heard a rumor she was born without a funny bone. Keep reading »
Last week, the Man Panel deemed wide-legged jeans a flagrant abuse against legs — but how do they feel about a pair of sexy platforms, meant to highlight your gorgeous gams? Ah, my friends, the answers are complicated, rich and deep — and rife with Superman references. Read on for our guy friends’ delicate opinions on the difference between cute shoes and stripper heels.

When Christina Aguilera‘s album Bionic dropped last April, it was impossible to miss the singer’s sudden interest in kink — her video for “Not Myself Tonight” featured whips, chains, a gimp mask, a ball gag, and drinking from a doggy bowl, among other things. Plus, there was that promotional photo featuring the singer wearing a thumb and index finger “petting ring” by Betony Vernon, which, while holding the fingers in the chi mudra position (for a concentrated, one-pointed mind), also aids in, uh, sexual play. There’s no doubt Xtina’s kinky ring cost an arm and a leg, but now you can get the look for a lot less. The question is, would you want too? Personally, I’m really into chunky, edgy jewelry — chains, mixed metals, harsh edges — so I think the sex ring is totally hot, albeit totally impractical. But would you wear it?

Check out this diagram about what your beauty mark(s) predict about your future. I am slightly skeptical for a few reasons: 1) I have no idea where this diagram comes from. 2) It looks like an egg and not a human face. 3) I had a beauty mark in the “carefree life” area and it turned out to be skin cancer. What does it mean now that it’s gone? I think I’ll go to a palm reader and find out. What do your beauty marks say? [The Gloss] Keep reading »
Stop the presses: this Kate Spade newspaper classified-printed iPad cover is a funky, literary take on the could-be-boring protective shield. Reading the fake classified ads like “Volunteers needed at the zoo” and “Found: spotted chihuahua” will keep you preoccupied when you’re out of a WiFi zone — not that you’d ever let that happen. While $85 might seem a bit steep for what amounts to a piece of plastic, it’s worth it to save your iPad from a klutzy accident, while looking geek-chic. No ink-stained fingers necessary!
So, yesterday, I ruined what I estimate to be my 57th pair of panties and stained a perfectly good pair of pajama bottoms when my tampon had a major leak. It was not a very sexy moment. But it could have been, if I had only been wearing a pair of Sexy Period panties! These very real, very purchasable undergarments are sold with three absorbent, leak-resistant layers built in, that way, if your ‘pon leaks, the spill will be soaked up by the crotch fabric. No ruined clothing! No public embarrassment! Just a super sexy bloody mess in your pants that’s your little secret. Keep reading »
