“Toddlers & Tiaras” is one of our favorite trainwreck shows to watch and in the last year the TLC kiddle pageant reality show has become rather controversial. Tots dressed as movie hookers! Toddlers getting waxed! Wee ones high on Pixie Sticks! The parenting, it is questionable. The standout “T&T” regular, in our opinion, is little MaKenzie, a Southern firecracker who will not go anywhere without her beloved pacifier NiNi. As an adult, dressing up like a “T&T” superstar is basically the same as dressing like a slutty princess — seriously, the short, poofy dresses are nearly identical. Pop in a NiNi, don a crown, tan your skin, apply 17 pounds of brightly colored eyeshadow, and scream with authority at anyone in your vicinity, “Don’t you EVER do that again!” and you’re set. Find out how to get the costume, after the jump! Keep reading »

Get all the details for this ripped-from-the-headlines costume, after the jump! Keep reading »
Too many guys think I’m a concept, or I complete them, or I’m gonna make them alive. But I’m just a fucked-up girl who’s lookin’ for my own piece of mind; don’t assign me yours.
Michel Gondry’s riveting 2004 film “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” has a special place in my heart. It manages to be all at once uplifting, darkly hilarious, and depressing in its aching realism. Jim Carrey (as Joel Barish) is like you’ve never seen him before, a rare, thought-provoking talent who feels, really feels, the deeeeep misery of anyone who has ever fallen madly in love only to have their heart shattered. His girlfriend Clementine, portrayed so effectively by Kate Winslet, is neurotic and impulsive, but you’ll soon learn that there is so much beauty to be found in instability. The disjointed manner of the film sees Clementine through a rainbow of hair colors, ages, and personalities, each more unhinged than the last. First, find out how to channel her cavalier, colorful persona this Halloween, and then check out four other character-driven Halloween costumes. Keep reading »
If you want to channel you inner bad ass, computer hacker this Halloween, there’s really no character more fitting than Lisbeth Salander, the inky heroine from The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo series. We encourage you not to harm anyone while wearing this costume, well, unless they deserve it. The “Wasp” approves of vigilante justice when necessary. Find out how to get Lisbeth’s look after the jump. Keep reading »
Played to perfection on “Boardwalk Empire” by my favorite hot mess-and-a half Paz de la Huerta, Lucy Danziger is a showgirl in every sense of the word. Intense, unpredictable, and attention-seeking, the former mistress of Atlantic City kingpin Nucky Thompson went from the ragtag life of a Ziegfeld Follies performer to a pampered concubine. Eventually exhausted by Lucy’s antics, Nucky meets Margaret Schroeder, a clever Irish widow, and casts his former squeeze to the wayside. Now pregnant with the child of Nelson Van Alden, a Prohibition agent with a long-distance wife and an unyielding religious conviction, Lucy is a miserable shred of what she once was. I prefer to think of her restored to former glory as Nucky’s arm candy, draped in jewels and sumptuous furs.
Here’s your guide to channeling Lucy Danziger’s opulent 1920s look this Halloween, and remember to tune in to HBO Sunday nights at 9 p.m. for the next installment of “Boardwalk Empire”! Keep reading »
DUIs. They happen to the best of us. Well, maybe not the best of us. Or most of us. But they sure do happen to celebs a lot. I’ve come to expect this crap from Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton. But Christina Aguilera’s drunk driving arrest? That was a surprise. When Christina and her boyfriend Matthew Rutler were pulled over on March 1 at 2:45 a.m., the po-po pronounced her bombed and noted she had trouble standing. The poor thing not only had to spend the night in jail, but had to take her mugshot sans red lipstick! The indignity!
I’m sure it’s a little episode the singer — and the producers of “The Voice” — would like to forget. But first you should pay homage to this hot mess with your very own Christina Aguilera Under Arrest Halloween costume. Keep reading »
Oh Lindsay Lohan, will your hot mess-ness never end? At least it’s good fodder for Halloween costumes, right? Here, we’ve paired her horrorshow of a blonde hair dye job with hand puppets representing her effed up family, a pack of smokes, and a good old fashioned pair of “morning after” sunglasses. Because yes, it’s gonna be a long night. Find out everything you need, after the jump! Keep reading »
With Tim Burton’s psychedelic version of “Alice in Wonderland” in the works, I’ve gotten newly excited about following a white rabbit down a rabbit hole. I don’t really want to be Alice cause she’s booooring, so I think I’m gonna be the Queen of Hearts this year. It’s a simple getup to put together. Get a black and white dress—I’ll spend more on a super cute one I can wear any time of the year. Add heart accessories in red and black, plus a crown and a scepter, which you can make out of tin foil. Voila. You’re ready to go around screaming, “Off with your head!”
