Where Was This Video Two Weeks Ago?

Over Christmas, I had the unique opportunity to apartment-sit for Wendy, who has two cats I looked after: Miles, who is fat and cute, and Simone, who swatted and hissed at me every chance she got. In any case, Miles and I pretty much fell in love — I still pine for him — but if only I had seen this video back then! I am sure that I would have wrapped Miles up like the Christmas gift he deserves to be. Damn, the cat in this video is patient, though. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: David Letterman Offends Transgender Community

Fashion Fortune: “Yo, What If We Made A Belt Outta Legos?”


Meet Dee and Ricky Jackson, twin brothers from Staten Island who have struck gold in one of those ways that makes you either go “Why didn’t I think of that?” or “You’ve got to be kidding.” The duo creates Lego accessories in the form of belts, brooches, and necktie-shaped pins that have caught the attention of celebs (Rihanna and Kanye, to name a few), and designers. In the video above, Dee and Ricky tell the tale of their success, which is less interesting for what it is, than how it’s told; it basically reads like a fashion mockumentary. To begin, the brothers explain that their inspiration was kind of random: “One day, we were like yo, what if we did a Lego belt.” The belt then made its way on to the models at a Marc Jacobs fashion show, and apparently, “Everybody hated Marc’s show that year. People were saying the only thing that was hot on the runway was the Legos.”

Seems like a pretty easy and fun job, right? The Jacksons think so. Tells Dee to the New York Daily News: “It is easier than dealing drugs. We are flipping bricks – Lego bricks.” [NYDailyNews.com]

“Project Runway” Season 7 Trailer Is Here!


A new season of “Project Runway” already? Didn’t the last season just end, like, last week? I guess the calendar got really screwed up with that Bravo vs. Lifetime fight over the show.

Anyway, here’s the season 7 trailer, starring my dream boyfriend Tim Gunn, Heidi Klum, Michael Kors, and the ever-irascible Nina Garcia. This crop of designers looks hella fun—and hopefully this season, no one (cough Irina cough) will be ripping ideas off New York magazine. [The Hollywood Reporter] Keep reading »

A Soused Mariah Carey Gives An Acceptance Speech


For those of you who want to yack at cutesy, faux-surprised award show acceptance speeches (still irritated over that Julia Roberts one 10 years ago), Mariah Carey accepting the Breakthrough Actress Award at the Palm Springs Film Festival must have seemed like a breath of fresh (and probably drunk) air. First Mariah hugs her presenter for an uncomfortably long time, before making a joke about kittens/cotton. Then she says, “Please forgive me, because I’m a little bit, um …” Aww, I think this is sweet. [SF Gate]

Just Who Is Kelly Cutrone, Anyway?

If you’re a fan of fashion reality TV, chances are you’ve either fallen in love with or become very afraid of Kelly Cutrone. For those not entranced with the daily life of Whitney Port on “The City” (here’s an exclusive interview), prepare to get to know Kelly, because right before Fashion Week, she’s going to take over your television and book shelf. On Feb. 1, the public relations power house is launching her very own show on Bravo called “Kell on Earth” and, just one day later, her first self-help book, If You Have to Cry, Go Outside … And Other Things Your Mother Never Told You, will hit shelves.

Fair enough: not everyone watches MTV or has heard of the illustrious Kelly Cutrone, so here’s a bit of a catch-up in preparation for February … Keep reading »

Why Is Alexander Skarsgard Speaking In A Southern Accent?

Maybe I’m crazy, but there’s a big difference between a Southern accent and a Swedish accent, right? Like, my ears wouldn’t be confusing the two, would they? Last night I was watching the above interview with “True Blood” hottie Alexander Skarsgard on “Extra” and was seriously perplexed. Wait, isn’t he from Norway or Sweden or something? Why does he sound like his name should be Billy Bob? Sure enough, Skarsgard was born and raised in Stockholm, but I can’t detect even the slightest bit of Swedish Chef in that sexy voice of his. Skarsgard is filming a movie called “Straw Dogs” and the story takes place in the Deep South. Is he “method” and constantly in character? In which case, can I please interview him while he’s filming “True Blood” and he can practice sucking on my neck? Keep reading »
