When the term “street style” was first coined, it was the domain of the unstudied, the unstaged, the stylist or editor or blogger wearing an outfit that she had purchased and put together herself.

Flashback: Lindsay Lohan’s 2006 Interview Cover As Elizabeth Taylor

I’m just going to put it out there: Lindsay Lohan is no Elizabeth Taylor, and I, among others, find myself vaguely and inexplicably offended by Lifetime’s decision to cast her as such. It pains me to see anyone fanning the flames of the formerly great young actress’s delusions of grandeur, and being tapped to play… More »


Celebrity Close-Ups Like You’ve Never Seen Before

It used to be that celebrities were shrouded in mystery, lightyears out of the atmosphere that “normal” people occupy.

Why Are We Such Fame Whores?

In her Salon piece, “A Nation of Attention Whores,” Mary Elizabeth Williams asks why everyone in this country seems so starved for fame.

Sandra Bullock Really Wants To Be The Poster Girl For Uniqueness

Sandra Bullock has always annoyed the crap out of me with her repeated portrayal of the stock rom-com character—the gorgeous, “quirky” girl.

Celebs Get Emo (And Uncomfortably Intimate) On Twitter

The website that allows you to tell dozens, hundreds – or if you are Ashton Kutcher – a million-plus friends what you are doing, how you’re doing and who you’re doing it with continues to catch on like swine flu.

I Live in NYC, So Where Are All The Celebs?

Every morning I peruse the daily newspapers and online blogs to see what has been going on in the world while I slept. Sometimes I am waking up refreshed from a good nights sleep, sometimes I am a zombie and every blue moon I am hungover. The morning after a night out is always a… More »
