The Perfect '50s Housewife

Oh, feminism, what a tangled web you weave! How could I have missed “Wives With Beehives,” a program that aired last Thursday night on TLC (of course), about couples who purposefully live a 1950s lifestyle? The husbands go off to work, carrying their lunch in a pail, natch, while the wives stay at their kitsch-ed out ’50s home wearing full makeup and retro dresses, cooking and cleaning before his return.

Women most desire the manners and appearance of men from the 1950s, according to a new survey by the men’s skincare brand,¬†Scaramouche & Fandango. (Yes, that’s their real name.) The survey found that more than half of women thought men cleaned up better in the 1950s and more than two-thirds of these poor, beleaguered women said they preferred old-fashioned chivalry. ¬†Four-fifths of the women surveyed said they wish their man had a better grooming routine … and half of the men admitted they didn’t groom at all.

Marion Cotillard’s Take On Rockabilly Hair

For last night’s party in Cannes celebrating fancy jewelry company Chopard’s 150th anniversary, Marion Cotillard paired a metallic jumpsuit with a French twist that wound its way up her head, ending in a bang-like bun. What do you think of Marion’s rockabilly hairdo? I think the front part resembles a croissant or some other delicious French pastry. Keep reading »
