I will preface everything I am about to say with a request: please don’t make fun. OK, now that we got that out of the way, I am still obsessed with the little known but fantastically ridiculous ’80s film “Teen Witch.” As I was discussing the movie this weekend with my gay best friend—I find myself doing this fairly often—he told me something about the film that blew my mind. Find out what after the jump. Keep reading »
Every Monday night while watching “Gossip Girl,” I gush over Blake Lively‘s endless blond locks, which are certainly unattainable without the assistance of a few extensions. However, one achievable hairdo from the flaxen-haired actress is her braided ponytail from the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala. With summer’s impending humidity, we’ve been on the hunt for any cute way to lift hair off the shoulders and neck to keep cool despite the 90+ degrees, because the go-to ponytail will quickly become pretty boring. In an effort to diversify your hairstyle, attempt the braided pony like Blake. Celebrity hairstylist Ted Gibson provides a great how-to video so early morning hair struggles will become a thing of the past. [Stylelist] Keep reading »
Ever since she became somewhat of a household name thanks to “Gossip Girl,” there’s been speculation that Blake Lively had her breasts augmented. But you’d never know there’d be a reason for rumors like that by looking at the photo on the left of Blake in the June issue of Vogue. They’ve airbrushed her cleavage away! Considering the actress shows up to most red carpet events in outfits that show off her bosoms, this is especially weird. Check out the Vogue cover, after the jump! [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
If Blake Lively thought she was the only “Gossip Girl” who can wear a plunge neckline down to her belly button, that bitch has another thing coming. Get a load of Leighton Meester‘s promo pics for her album, Love Is A Drug. [Just Jared]

Taking the whole tights-as-pants trend one step further, Blake Lively wore these thigh-high, faux-leather Stella McCartney boots as tights to the You Know You Want It book party Monday night. That’s right — she wore boots as her bottoms. I wonder how long it takes to get those on and off … [via NYMag.com] Keep reading »
Blake Lively and her gorge eyes — thanks to her perfectly lined inner rims — hit the town last night, above. We’ve talked about lining the inner rim of your eyes before, and I’m all about it, but, there’s one problemo: My eyes tear up something crazy and I can’t keep my eyeliner in place. To solve that rather irritating (literally and figuratively) issue, I got to testing out possible solutions and I think I’ve discovered the secret! Keep reading »
Blake Lively did her best greaser impression on February’s cover of Esquire, though I remember the guys in “Grease” wearing pants.
In unrelated news: the arch of Blake’s left eyebrow looks super-obviously Photoshopped, right? [Esquire.com]
UPDATE: Eek, how embarrassing! Commenters have correctly pointed out that the Sharks and the Jets are from “West Side Story,” not “Grease.” And I’ve seen both of those movies a million times. For shame! Keep reading »
I had uncomfortable feelings about this “Saturday Night Live”
skit where Kenan Thompson and Blake Lively
make fun of Elin Nordegren
allegedly beating up Tiger Woods
. Ever since the Woods/Nordegren shiz-nit went down over Thanksgiving, I’ve been noodling a blog post about how I’ve heard and read nothing
condemning Nordegren’s what-sounds-a-lot-like domestic violence
against her husband and the fact that he seems to be covering for her. Keep reading »
Hey, we all have our off-days, which may be the only explanation for this NY Times Style section piece about how women are like, really, really into “Gossip Girl” star Blake Lively‘s hair.
“In the 1990s, there was the ‘Rachel,’ named after Jennifer Aniston’s character on the TV show ‘Friends.’ Before the Rachel it was the ‘Farrah’ — the flipped out, flouncy hairstyle worn by Farrah Fawcett. Now, it’s Ms. Lively … whose tresses are coveted: extra long, ultra-shiny blond with a mussed-up tussle frolicking through the ends.”
Really? That’s quite a statement, guys. Here’s another quote on the subject for you, from our own Lily Q: “People need to calm down.” After all, there’s nothing more to the look than really long, slightly wavy, unbrushed hair, and I’m not jealous because that’s what I’ve got and most days it goes in a bun. Their proof that women are just dying to copy this hairstyle? Well, there’s the hard cold fact that a Google search of “Blake Lively Hair” produces 713,000 results (at their press time). Wow! At our press time “Angelina Jolie Hair” was at 5,160,000, Jennifer Aniston at 2,290,000 and Blake Lively’s own costar Leighton Meester beat her at 839,000. Just sayin’. The other “evidence” of this phenomenon is that Blake HERSELF admits that stylish women like “Vogue staffers” routinely approach her and compliment her hair. Honey, we know Vogue staffers, and that definitely doesn’t sound like any of them, unless they were being facetious and mocking you behind your back. Of course, the Style section could have just run an article about how women will always want princessy blond hair. That might have made more sense, no? [NY Times] Keep reading »
“When I was only three years old, my mom enrolled me in the first grade. My older brother was supposed to start school, but he didn’t want to go alone, so my mom told them I was six since I was so tall. But after a few weeks, they said they would have to put me in mentally disabled classes because I wasn’t up to pace with the rest of the kids. They thought that I was slow because all I wanted to do was sleep while the other kids were doing their projects. (laughs) So my mom took me out of school.
