When loafers and smoking slippers started showing up in women’s shoe sections, I was skeptical. Was this Hugh Hefner-inspired footwear really going to catch on? The answer, I soon found out, was a resounding “YES!” These days, everyone from your 15-year-old niece to Hollywood’s leading ladies are rocking these casual kicks. Click through to see how 10 celeb ladies are styling their loafers…
One Direction fans aren’t taking rumors that Harry Styles is dating country cutie Taylor Swift again lightly as some fans are threatening to murder the A-list singer.
According to The Hollywood Gossip, a handful of tweets have surfaced online saying, “I’ll murder Taylor Swift. She will not date my Harry,” and “If u dating my harry, I kill u.”
Reports that the two were getting cuddly surfaced over the weekend after Swift was spotted holding Styles’s hand backstage after performing on The X Factor. Read more…
“That all came out of this one relationship I was in. This guy was just, so, so cool. It kind of gave me a bit of a complex for this album, because he was always going on and on about this new band that was so cool because they were so underground. I have so many indie bands on my iPod. What I don’t really understand is the attitude that if a band is unknown, they’re good, and if they get fans, then you move on to the next band.”
–Taylor Swift feigns like she just doesn’t “get” indie rock, but like, not “getting” it is totally the super ironic hipster response, Tay-Tay. Swift was talking about indie bands after New York Times interviewer Susan Dominus noted that she calls out dudes listening to indie bands in her hit “We Are Never Getting Back Together.” It’s kind of a thing with her, we think, because she also claimed to listen to a lot of indie music but refused to call out any single band. Plus! New images taken from her newest video shoot show her getting all hot and heavy with a very hipster looking dude. So, irony. [NY Times]
We’re so bored of our own text messages. The only people who text us regularly are our mothers. Hi mom! We love you, but blergh. We wonder what kind of sexy text messages celeb couples are exchanging … hmmm. They must me more titillating than ours. Or at least more entertaining.
“Whether it’s a summertime dress that makes me feel carefree, an evening cocktail dress that makes me feel fancy, or a vintage dress that makes me feel like a ’50s housewife—which I enjoy feeling like, for some reason—I just really like dresses. …
If I feel too much like I’m wearing the pants, I start to feel uncomfortable and then we break up. … [I]t’s wonderful to hand over the reins to your boyfriend when you control so much of these big, high-pressure decisions, you know? That is a huge defining factor in who you choose to be with. Some combinations of people are toxic, you know? You have to find the right one that isn’t just going to explode into fiery ash and destruction.”
This is Taylor Swift in Harper’s Bazaar magazine, first talking about her love of dresses, and elsewhere in the interview talking about what she wants from a relationship. Tay-Tay is someone I’ve criticized in the past because she seemingly doesn’t understand feminism whilst declaring herself not a feminist. Fine, don’t be a feminist, but at least understand what it actually is that you’re disagreeing with. So I found myself nodding my head in agreement when I read these quotes above that she gave to Harper’s about what kind of dudes she likes to be with in a relationship. I nodded my head because hey, Taylor Swift, I am the exact same way.
So I was somewhat dismayed to see Taylor getting trashed for these quotes on the blog Mommyish. Keep reading »
After Scarlett Johansson debuted her new tattoo, Amelia and I both didn’t get it. We had an in-depth conversation about it, where we came to the realization that the reasons we didn’t like it were: A) it was exactly the kind of tattoo we expected Scarjo to get (the same way we expected her to release a Tom Waits cover album) and B) something about it seemed like she was trying too hard to demonstrate her street cred (the same way her Tom Waits cover album did).
We say this as two tattooed women who both have Chinese character tattoos we’re embarrassed of. I have two other tattoos, which I love because they have deep meaning to me. Maybe “Lucky You” has deep meaning to Scarjo, who knows? That’s not important. What’s important is this: Scarjo and her “Lucky You” tattoo inspired a much longer reverie about other celebrity tattoos we are expecting to see any day now. When they come true, just remember, we called it first.
