Let’s take a minute to talk about Miley Cyrus, shall we?
With a performance so uncomfortable it rivals that of the bride who grinded down the aisle to Buckcherry’s “Crazy Bitch,” Miley’s jaw-dropping VMAs stunt left parents covering the eyes of their children and grown adults glaring with disapproval as they watched in awe.
It’s safe to say the twerkin’ pop star’s performance ruffled more than a few feathers, but there’s something to be said about the fact that we’re still talking about it days later. Wasn’t that the point? Keep reading »
White, in cotton, linen and lace, is everywhere at the moment. Whether you’re Maria Menounous filming on the streets of NYC, or Olivia Wilde hanging at the Chateau Marmont, white feels perfectly feminine and summery. We’ve found five celebs sporting white looks this week (from left to right): Maria Menounos, Eva Longoria, Padma Lakshmi, Ireland Baldwin, and Olivia Wilde. But which look is your fave?
Let’s talk about Sydney Leathers for a minute. Sydney Leathers is a LOT of things, but is she a bad person?
This woman has made some choices that I don’t agree with— carrying on a sexting affair with a very married Anthony Weiner (ew), capitalizing on her newfound attention by releasing a hardcore masturbation porno, penning an article for xoJane.com about “How to Seduce a Politician,” to name a few.

A survey done in the UK found that only 35 percent of people wash their sex toys after every use. More than half of the participants said they washed their toys “regularly” and 12 percent, clearly not germophobes, admitted to never cleaning them. OK. That’s just gross. The company that ran this survey found the results “quite worrying given the risk of bacterial infection.” Apparently, we should be washing our toys after every use. Keep reading »
So you guys may remember The Ugly Desk, which I bought on a whim and de-uglified with a couple coats of teal paint. Ready for part two of the saga? The Ugly Desk came with an Ugly Chair, pictured above. This chair might actually be uglier than the desk — the style and fabric are very mid-90s accounting firm conference room, which is not exactly the vibe I go for in my home decorating scheme. I’ve kept it this long because it’s surprisingly comfy and a good height for the desk. So here’s my question: is this chair worth an attempted makeover? I was thinking of trying to recover the seat and back with a cute fabric (maybe polka dots?), and I could even spray paint the legs and armrests if I was feeling really crafty. Keep reading »
Over the weekend, the Metropolitan Museum of Art set up a special screening of the new “Great Gatsby” movie. A ton of stars attended, likely in part because tonight is the Met Ball (this year’s theme: punk). We’ll have all the gowns and mis-applied safety pins for you tomorrow, but in the meantime, take a look at these five — from left to right: Kylie Minogue, Solange, Nanette Lepore, Rachael Taylor and Brad Goreski — and pick your favorite print or pattern!
This late April has brought about some seriously weird weather here in NYC. It’s 45 and rainy today and set to be 72 and sunny tomorrow, so not only do we have no idea what to wear, but our bodies have no idea what to do with themselves. This, naturally, presents Beauty Problems galore. We can’t be bothered with complaining about our stuffy noses and tension headaches when there are more pressing issues like chapped lips and frizzy hair at hand! Julie has a newly-developed lip balm addiction, Winona is dealing with skin sensitivity and blotchiness (and layering on the foundation to no avail as a result which, come on, we all do), and I have an incredibly painful under-the-skin zit that as of right now is invisible to everyone but me. Are you having any weather or stress-induced beauty issues? Let’s commiserate. Please? [Photo of woman looking at face in mirror from Shutterstock]
Zac Efron, you’ve grown up before our eyes! No longer that “High School Musical” twink, you’re now a strapping young man, starring in Nicholas Sparks’ “The Lucky One,” as a soldier who returns from war and blah blah blah love story who cares? He’s shirtless and making sweet romantical love to some blond girl. But here? Here, he seems to be reaching for the gold that’s in his own pants while chatting on the phone, which makes us wonder — just who is Efron talking to?
I am a lucky gal. The folks at online glasses retailer Mezzmer have offered me the chance to test out their “try at home” service in exchange for a complimentary pair of specs. Mezzmer allows shoppers to pick as many as five pairs to try at home. You simply add the pairs you’d like to try on to your cart and for a service fee of $1 — which is refunded to you in a couple of days — they send you the frames in a nice box to try on at home. When you decide on which frames you want, you mail the sample frames back (it comes with a return slip to slap on the same box they came in), and then order your final pair with your prescription. (You even have 30 days to return your glasses if for some reason you’re unhappy with them.) Keep reading »
