The Worst Dressed At The 2013 Golden Globes

Okay, honest: There wasn’t that much actual dreckitude at this year’s Golden Globes. As much as we love deriding a dress that’s just totally wrong, most celebs got it pretty spot on. So don’t think that everyone in this category is a total failure. It’s just that … they could have done better. It wasn’t that, for instance, Lena Dunham looked awful — it’s just that we would have picked something else for her. Maybe something not so heavy and drapery-like. And it’s not that Kristen Wiig didn’t look like a knock out. It’s just … the belly cutout on that dress was a bit too “pregnant high school girl at the prom.” But Julianne Hough? Sorry girl, your dress was tres terrible!

So we give the “bad” rating with those caveats in mind. Everyone there last night was a winner, and way better dressed than you or me, sitting on the couch watching at home (okay, maybe just me).

And who knows … maybe by this year’s Academy Awards we’ll be able to give some of them a mark for Most Improved.

Season two isn’t back until next week but a lil’ spoiler (after the jump!) at The Hollywood Reporter has some deets on what he’s doing with Hot-Mess Hannah Horvath. Keep reading »

Lena Dunham Poses For Creepy Uncle Terry

Some how, some way, every starlet in Hollywood drops trou for Terry Richardson. Today, it is Lena Dunham’s turn, inspiring heel envy in us all.

But don’t worry about skid marks on that director’s chair, my friends — Lena’s wearing a bathing suit with her stilettos. As you do. [Blackbook Mag via V Magazine]

"I'm not nuts! I just want to feel it all."

Let’s see, what does this trailer tell us about the upcoming season of “Girls”? Jessa is still married to Chris O’Dowd, though it seems his parents don’t approve. Hannah is spending more time with her gay ex-boyfriend and potentially fighting with him over dudes. Marnie is still kind of sort of pining after that hot boyfriend she broke up with and then immediately wanted back, but he’s still dating the girl he took up with after her. Shoshanna is crying about something. Oh, and Hannah is still taking baths with her friends. So not much has changed except where the hell is sexy/sleazy ex-boyfriend Adam?

Starring Paul Rudd, Leslie Mann, Maude Apatow, Iris Apatow, Jason Segel, Megan Fox, Chris O’Dowd, Albert Brooks and John Lithgow

Simply put, “This Is 40″ left a sour taste in my mouth. I felt like Judd Apatow did what he always does, which is write a plum role for his wife, and then decide: “Hey, I’ll throw every other funny person I know in this movie! And also Megan Fox! She’ll take her top off! And swim in a bikini! And I’ll give my kids roles, too! Even though they’re not good actors!” Keep reading »

And then, if you scroll three-fourths of the way down (after page 36), there’s a picture of some kind of barnyard animal pooping. No joke. [Gawker]

Given Lena Dunham‘s fairly recent induction into the Pixie Cut Club, which we presume involved a hazing at the hand of Miley Cyrus, Anne Hathaway, and Michelle Williams, it was only a matter of time before some (fresh! Innovative! Cutting-edge!) photographer and makeup artist decided to give the girl behind “Girls” the full Twiggy. Dare we say she does it better than most? Dunham agreed: hairstylist Reanne White said of Lena’s look, “She was taking pictures of herself and she kept all the makeup to go out that night.” Looking good, Hannah Horvath!

15 Brilliantly Ridiculous Quotes From “Girls” Season One (Before Pre-Gaming For Season Two Makes Us Forget)

It’s probably a good thing that Kate Middleton announced her pregnancy yesterday, because for a few days there the trailer for the second season of “Girls“ was the big talk of the town. Or at least it seemed that way for a New York minute, and New York minutes are by which all things in life are measured– if this were a “Sex and the City” episode. But thankfully, it isn’t.

Even those who loathed the first season, condemned the show for all its flaws (perhaps a mirror for some that hated to admit it?), or loved it madly and spent the majority of their Thanksgiving vacation watching it obsessively for “research,” everyone had something to say about the trailer. It did have dogs in it, after all! And Adam being his usual psychotic self! And Marnie finally banging Booth! And yes, we’re making “banging” our favorite replacement verb for “fucking” in 2013.

With the premiere just over a month away — January 13th — it seemed only appropriate to rehash the past and take a trip down the Greenpoint streets of memories with some of the finest lines from Hannah, Jessa, Marnie and Shoshanna. No matter your personal feelings on Lena Dunham, you have to admit the lady is stitch. Haven’t we all wondered about the “stuff that gets up around the sides of condoms?”

Yes. We have. Read more…

Girls! Girls! Girls!

Wow, “Girls,” Lena Dunham’s critically acclaimed show about being a twentysomething in New York City, is back quicker than I expected — the second season premieres January 13 on HBO and the trailer has just hit the web. Here’s what we know is ahead: Adam still has a boner for Hannah, but she’s not sure whether she still likes him or if he’s a psycho; Marnie is still single and needing to get laid; Shoshanna is reveling in no longer being a virgin; and Jessa is happily married to Chris O’Dowd. Oh, and Rita Wilson plays Marnie’s mom. Yay!

Frisky Sexism
All of The Frisky's posts about sexism. Read More »

I have very mixed feelings about a piece on NYMag.com’s blog about “hipster sexism.” The authors Alissa Quart and Lauren Sandler author Alissa Quart described “hipster sexism” as:

Hipster Sexism consists of the objectification of women but in a manner that uses mockery, quotation marks, and paradox … ads, photographs, television shows, films, and T-shirts, which represent young women being defined, but always ironically — with a wink and a nod — by their sexuality and/or bodies.

Old Sexists (or Classic Sexists), they explain, are Republicans in Congress — people my parents’ age — whose outdated beliefs about gender and sexuality could be attributed to just not getting with the times. Hipster sexists “should know better,” the authors write, but don’t, and try to pass it off as funny and/or ironic.
