We like David Beckham. A lot. His personality? Who cares? We just like to gaze upon him adoringly. And we especially like this wet, sexy, abtastic shot of Mr. Posh Spice on the cover of the new Elle UK. He’s the first man to ever go solo on the cover of the mag, so they did two versions — the one just for subscribers is posted after the jump. We’re particularly fond of this “dripping wet hunk/junk shot,” but which do you prefer?

“As a high fashion model I have long had a policy of no nudity or partial nudity in my photoshoots. For my recent [Elle Brasil] cover shoot I wore a body suit under a sheer dress, but recently discovered that the body suit was Photoshopped out to give the impression that I am showing much more skin than I actually was or am comfortable with. This was specifically against my expressed verbal and written direction. I’m extremely disappointed that my wishes and contract were ignored. I strongly believe every model has a right to set rules for how she is portrayed and for me these rules were clearly circumvented.”
– Coco Rocha, who has long been one of the more critical voices of the modeling industry, took to her Tumblr to slam the editors/publishers of Elle Brasil, which Photoshopped her against her wishes into a partially nude bodysuit for their cover. This is a little nipple-y looking.
Well, that was ballsy of you, Elle Brasil, to break contract. I’m assuming they’re so used to models being grateful for a magazine cover at all that they don’t think they have to stay true to their word? [Oh So Coco]

“Fifteen minutes before, the guy doing my hair goes, ‘If you can get a salad, get a salad … I said, ‘I’m getting a Philly cheesesteak.’ I’m sure there’s proof on a hotel bill somewhere.”
–”X-Men” actress Jennifer Lawrence, talking about what she ate before the Oscars, in this month’s Elle magazine. This is an example of Lawrence is providing a Documented Instance of Public Eating — a common celeb interview occurrence, wherein an actress attempts to prove how utterly normal she is by listing off the fattening foods she’s eaten. Noted! [Elle]

Jealous of Khloe Kardashian’s color-coordinated shoe closet? I know I am salivating right now, so I can only imagine how Kim and Kourtney feel. Good god, that closet is a sight to behold. “I love all of my shoes! It is a must to have them color coordinated, and to be able to see each and every one of them. I know exactly where each one lives and I can tell if one has even been moved! It definitely helps to put one shoe facing front, and the other to the back. It saves space, but it is also nice to be able to see the back-side of the shoe. I am an organization freak!” Khloe told Elle magazine. The neat freak in me is kvelling. I’ve tried to organize my shoes but they always end up mismatched and all over place. Maybe it would be different if I had 75 pairs of Laboutins. Khloe may be the “ugly sister“(even though she’s hot by all standards), but more than makes up for it in the shoe department. We all have our strengths. [Elle] Keep reading »
Usually we read Elle magazine’s advice column “Ask E. Jean” with a sense of bemused horror. We imagine E. Jean sitting poolside sipping a Mai Tai, systematically rattling off terrible, cliche, and gender-stereotyped advice to a beleaguered assistant who’s forced to type up every word. You see, the women who write into E. Jean often have similar problems — the spark in their relationship has died, their husbands or boyfriends are now distant or disinterested. And without fail, E. Jean always recommends the same thing — “Oh honey, just whip up a steak dinner, put on some sexy lingerie and seduce your man back into the relationship.” In E. Jean’s world, we’re all just a sexy negligee away from solving all our relationship woes.
And then we read E. Jean’s advice to a woman who’s been married for four months and is still a virgin … Keep reading »
I’m surprised to see Gabby Sidibe on the cover of Elle‘s October issue. Magazines like Elle aren’t known for putting plus-size women on the cover. I think she looks pretty, but not everyone agrees. A blogger for Clutch thinks Gabby’s skin looks lightened and that her weave looks messed up. Specifically, “The weave looks like an old used up brillo pad that has seen too many greasy pots and too many anti-humidity products.” Ouch. It’s hard to tell if Gabby’s skin was lightened — hope not — or the giant-ass lights were just reflecting off her face during the shoot. Anyhoo, I still stand by what I said: She looks pretty to me.

Don’t get me wrong, I love me some Joe Zee. But if you watch “The City,” Elle magazine’s creative director comes across as fun but a little bit of a hard-nose. Here, though, in this hilarious video, we get to see another side of Zee, making fun of himself. For some reason, Zee decided it would be a good idea to meander through the streets of Manhattan during a heatwave looking for the zoo and wearing a giant faux-fur suit from Chanel’s fall-winter runway show. It’s Yeti Zee! Watch as Joe sunbathes his fur, gets a hairball, and tells everyone his hair is couture. [Racked] Keep reading »
“I have a boyfriend [Matt Kemp]. I’m so happy. I feel really comfortable, and it’s so easy. I have such a chaotic life, but at the end of the day, that is just my peace. It keeps me sane, really, talking to him and talking to my family … A year ago, I was very confused. Because [Chris Brown] was my best friend. All of a sudden, one night changed our whole lives—not only our friendship, but our lives. I wanted to wake up one day and just not have that pain anymore. I wanted to be with him again or get over him—it was either-or. I just didn’t want to feel the pain, the confusion.”
