Warning: Spoilers and NSFW video. We’ve had some bizarre sexual encounters in our day, but Marnie and Booth’s coupling on last night’s episode of “Girls” was beyond creepy (okay, and hilarious). When Marnie ran into “that smeege of a man” as Hannah called him (I’m stealing that!), Booth took her back to his place to show her his work. He proceeded to lock Marnie into his panic attack-inducing art installation cage where TV screens flickered disturbing images and Duncan Sheik’s “Barely Breathing” played on a loop. Meanwhile he checked his email and had a snack. Seriously, I almost couldn’t watch because I was getting claustrophobic. It was very Willy Wonka when he takes the kids on that crazy boat ride. Not to fret! It got weirder! Booth freed Marnie from his art prison, comforted her and fucked her, reciting a sex script so bizarre, I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. I don’t think Marnie did either. Seriously, this exact thing must have happened to one of the writers. It’s just not possible to make this shit up. Keep reading »
People who say they read Vogue for the articles are missing the point. Vogue is about fashion, fashion, fashion — and the keepers of the fashion pages are the fashion editors. A new HBO documentary, ”In Vogue: The Editor’s Eye,” chronicles Vogue fashion editors past and present. In addition to well-loved Grace Coddington, “In Vogue” features interviews with past editors Babs Simpson, Tonne Goodman, Phyllis Posnick, Jade Hobson, Carlyne Cerf, Polly Mellen and Camilla Nickerson. We want to know everything about Polly Mellen, who refers to herself as “the spoiled brat of the fashion world.” The documentary airs December 6 on HBO. We’ll be watching!

We’re currently going through “Game of Thrones” withdrawal, so we were extra excited to see the new “GoT” season three cast announced. The cute kid from “Love, Actually” will be on the next season, as will mod-tastic actress Diana Rigg.
