Let’s Get Nostalgic: Show Us Your Old School Easter Photos!

What's not to love about Easter? The family time? The food? The Easter egg hunts and big ol' baskets of chocolate? I'm a big fan of it all. But perhaps my favorite Easter pastime is watching the cute little kiddies run around in their Sunday best, looking like they were plucked directly…

Asleep At The Chateau Shows A Sleepier Side Of The Chateau Marmont

Long before Lindsay took up unauthorized residence, the Chateau Marmont on Sunset Boulevard played host and home to a multitude of eminent eccentrics and bold-faced names (F. Scott Fitzgerald, Marilyn Monroe, Dennis Hopper, Jim Morrison, Hunter S. Thompson, Heath Ledger, Led Zeppelin, Britney Spears, Howard Hughes, and beyond) who all had one thing i…

The 10 Most Instagrammed Things Of Every Year Ever

So, the list of the most Instagrammed places in the world for 2012 has been released. The Bangkok Airport came in at #1, and the rest of the spots--Disneyland, the Eiffel Tower, Times Square--are pretty predictable, but focusing on the most popular places leaves out some really iconic Instagram photo subjects. I mean, where are…

Karl Lagerfeld Photographs Victoria Beckham In Chanel’s Iconic Paris Home

It's not every day that Karl Lagerfeld deems a fashionista worthy of being photographed in Coco Chanel's iconic former Paris home at 31 Rue Cambon, so it's kind of remarkable that he chose Victoria Beckham over someone like, say, Blake Lively. I totally thought Blake was his dress-up doll of choice these days.

New Bride Natalie Portman Strips Down For Diorskin Nude Ad Campaign

As much as I'm thrilled for Natalie Portman, Benjamin Millepied, and their gorgeous Big Serious (Ginger) Baby Aleph, the celebration must come with a certain gravitas because one of Hollywood's loveliest ladies is officially off the market. I hope that motherhood and married life do not translate into the diminishing of Natalie's public presence,…

Is This Messy-Haired Magazine Cover A Sign Of Sexier Things To Come For Katie?

Hey, you guys, Katie Holmes is not messing around. If this long, loose, sexy hair on the cover of C Magazine — which she was photographed and interviewed for the day before filing for divorce from Tom Cruise — doesn't positively scream "free bitch," I don't know what does. I cannot wait for…

What If Everyone Who Does Duckface Is Actually Eating Invisible Spaghetti?

So here it is. Categorical proof that people who insist on doing the duckface pose in photos are actually operating on a different plane of consciousness, contentedly sucking down noodles from a floating plate of spaghetti that we mortals are unable to see. Suddenly I'm questioning everything I ever thought to be true. […

Marion Cotillard Manages To Score Three Magazine Covers For August

If you've doubted Marion Cotillard's star power at any point in the past few years since she starred as Édith Piaf in 2007's breathtaking "La vie en rose," now would be the time to reconsider. Not only has the pretty Parisian appeared in several films since then, but she's directly atop the radar at thi…

We Want To Go To There: 6 Gorgeous Places To Ponder The Meaning Of Life

On my recent trip to Hawaii, I spent pretty much every night watching the sun set over the bright blue ocean and just, you know, thinking about life. There are certain places in the world--Maui, for example--that invite you to slow down, take a breath, and consider this amazing world we live in and our…

10 Popular Photo Poses That Need To Be Retired

Thanks to Facebook we're all looking at photos of our friends and family pretty much constantly. In some ways, this has made people better at taking and posing for photos -- most of us know which side is our good side and which activities we probably shouldn't document online -- but it's also highlighted some…

Rare New Photos Of Karl Lagerfeld (In A Mankini!) Revealed

Karl Lagerfeld never struck me as the type of guy who would cheerfully don a mankini, but I was so wrong. A new biography of Antonio Lopez, famed fashion illustrator and friend of Lagerfeld who died of AIDS in 1987, features photos of such '70s icons as Halston and Liza Minnelli — even a young…

Woody And Scarlett Have A Beach Day

Woody Allen and Scarlett Johansson spent a fake day at a fake beach for their 2006 New York magazine story. Perhaps Scarlett's close relationship with Woody led to her breakup with Ryan Reynolds? We're sure Woody hopes that's true. [Touch Puppet]…

Free Teeth Whitening (For Your Facebook Photos At Least)

It's like red-eye corrector but for your yellow teeth! According to a recent study (via Teen Vogue) white teeth actually make you hotter (no, uh, kidding), confident and more likely to get hired (legit, yo). So, let's get us some pearly whites—at least the after-the-fact photo kind! Did you know Crest has a…

The Last 31 Days Of 2008: Make Prints Of Your Digital Photos

I have thousands and thousands of digital photos on my computer and maybe three photos actually framed in my apartment. Why? Because I've been lazy about getting my favorite photos developed. While digital cameras are awesome for the sheer immediate gratification factor, they also have contributed to the lack of long term appreciation for those…

Polaroid Film May Be Dead, But Its Look Lives On

How sad are you that Polaroid is discontinuing its trademark instant film? As much as I love my digital camera, the pictures I take on it aren't nearly as artful as they would be if I were using a Polaroid. But now I can make all of my snapshots look amazing with the…

The Hairwash Photo Project

Making use of shampoo can really change you. Not only does it make you look so fresh and so clean, but it also makes you feel better (especially if you went to the beach and didn't wash your hair all weekend). This site, which I cannot read because it's in Russian, shows pic…
