Mindy Kaling Is Just Fine With Her ELLE Cover, Thank You

Mindy Kaling is on the cover of the February issue of ELLE, as are three other, skinnier, actresses. Kaling is not showing as much skin or as much of her body in general on her cover of ELLE, in comparison to the three other actresses' covers. Some people have found this objectionable. So now,…

Melissa McCarthy Thinks Your Outrage Over Her Wearing A Jacket On The Cover Of Elle Was Ridiculous

Last month, Melissa McCarthy appeared on the cover of ELLE magazine wearing a long, grey coat over a little black dress. But that jacket wasn't just a jacket. It was a jacket some in the blogosphere attributed to a "fuck you" on the magazine's part to women of McCarthy'…

Today’s Lady News: AZ Grocer Covers Up Jessica Simpson’s Nude Magazine Cover

Look, I'm as sick of listening to Jessica Simpson talk about her copious amounts of amniotic fluid as you are. [I'm not sick of it! -- Editor] But really, Tucson, Arizona grocery store, was it necessary to cover up Jess's naked, pregnant Elle magazine cover with a sign reading "Please Do Not Remove Cardboard"?

Khloe Kardashian: The “Ugly Sister” With The Beautiful Closet

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…

E. Jean, Elle’s Advice Columnist, Needs To Stop

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 ofte…

Gabby Sidibe Graces The October Issue Of “Elle”

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…

Elle Creative Director Joe Zee Wanders New York City In A Chanel Fur Suit

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…

Quotable: Rihanna Talks About Matt Kemp And Chris Brown

"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 wa…

Helena Christensen Is Pro-Nudity Past 40

Could middle-aged women become the new ideal of female hotness? It would seem Helena Christensen thinks so, as the 40-year-old supermodel has been making moves to adjust image standards. She appeared nude on the cover of i-D this month (along with Eva Herzigova and Claudia Schiffer), and is also in the buff for…

What Your Favorite Fashion Bloggers Are Wearing Today

We're a tad biased, but we happen to think that fashion bloggers are pretty legit when it comes to clothing selection (as opposed to sitting around in sweats all day, which is fine too, but ... ). Proving our theory are a handful of e-fashion mavens who recently ran wild in the closets of Elle…

Is Lindsay Lohan A Kleptomaniac?

British cops want to question Lindsay Lohan about $400,000 worth of Dior jewelry that went missing after a photo shoot she did for Elle Magazine.

Where To Meet Him: Charity Fundraisers

This month's Elle Magazine has kind of a good idea. Rather than logging on to Match.com or waiting to bump into a hottie at the grocery store, start scoping men at charity fundraisers. Why? Because if they care about a cause you do, then you already have something in common and an easy way to…

Britney Spears Doesn’t Know What’s Appropriate At A Photo Shoot

Last year, Britney Spears totally embarrassed herself by acting erratic at an OK! Magazine photo shoot. She wiped her grease covered hands on a several thousand dollar dress. Her dog crapped on the floor, and Brit Brit used another dress to clean it up. Not to mention she once showed the…

Last night, Project Runway judge, current Elle editor-at-large, and soon-to-be Marie Claire fashion director Nina Garcia had a "discussion and book signing" at the Tribeca Barnes & Noble in New York.
