Dita Von Teese, watch out. Check out this coffee table book of photographs by celebrity photographer Timothy White, starring Hollywood It-girls done up as retro-pinups. In the past, White’s shot stars ranging from Harrison Ford to Will Smith, but this time around he went for old school Hollywood, girly glamor. His pinup makeover subjects include Cindy Crawford, Gina Gershon, Jamie-Lynn Sigler, Kate Hudson, Michelle Trachtenberg, Molly Sims, Vanessa Williams, and Mary-Kate Olsen. You can check out Olsen’s shot here. We like that the images are classy, not crass. These days, more is the new less. Keep reading »
Last night, I had the most glorious dream. It didn’t involve me making out with anyone, but there was a celebrity in it. I dreamed that Michelle Williams and I became total BFFs. We met at a dinner party, where she took my number. Then, we started hanging out, and, eventually, she even let me babysit Matilda while she was presenting at the Oscars or some awards show.
Amelia has had some rather pleasant dreams, as well. Once, she dreamed that she was Rihanna’s understudy. She had to perform in place of Rihanna, and then she got it on with Chris Brown [FYI, it was totally a threesome. -- Editor]. No doubt she had watched this video before going to bed.
Now, we want to hear your weird celebrity dreams. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org telling us about the strange star-filled thoughts that filled your head one night, and we’ll post our favorites on Thursday. Sweet dreams! Keep reading »

Vanity Fair has posted the latest version of its annual New Establishment list. But, hey! Where are all the women? Out of the 100 moguls, entertainers, and businessfolk who made the list as the top 100 “leaders of the information age,” just how many are women? A whopping nine. Who are they, you ask? Oprah Winfrey, Angelina Jolie, Arianna Huffington, Miuccia Prada, Diane Sawyer, Anna Wintour, Annette de la Renta, Donatella Versace, and Diane Von Furstenberg. So, what have we learned? If you’re a woman who wants to be considered a player in the New Media era by the media, you better be an entertainer, work in fashion, or have really, really great hair. Keep reading »
“When you call us a bitch, we take it to mean strong, opinionated, and sassy. When you call us the c-word, you better cross the street.” — Debi Mazar [Esquire] Keep reading »

Celebs like Oprah, Bono, Angelina Jolie, and even Jessica Simpson try to do good by backing certain causes, but according to a Harris Poll, 51 percent of Americans say celebrities make little to no difference to the issues they support. Younger people are more likely to believe famous people have a positive influence, as are Democrats. For me, it really depends who the celeb is and whether it seems as though they really care about the cause they’re touting. Remember when Paris Hilton said she wanted to “use [her] fame in a good way”? Well, now she’s supposedly hosting a dog-grooming show in the U.K. [Reuters, Washington Post, AHN] Keep reading »
Angie Harmon, one of the many semi-interchangeable women who’ve played an assistant district attorney on Law & Order, seems to think women in politics should be just as seen and not heard. The Texas-born and raised hardcore conservative, who’s married to former pro-football player Jason Sehorn (he famously proposed to her on Leno) told Page Six Magazine:
I really don’t know how I feel about [a woman in the White House]. I see the positive parts of it. But, you know, I think there’s something incredible about a First Lady. That, to me, is a woman in the White House. It’s sort of like being parents to the United States, and she takes on the role of mother and confidante and care-giver. Standing behind every powerful man, there’s a powerful woman…I don’t want to say no, because that doesn’t sound very open-mined.
