Here’s Edie Beale in the original “Grey Gardens,” describing her “best costume for the day,” an insane combo of pantyhose and safety pins. Best costume, indeed.
The fashion expert claims, “I don’t like women in skirts…you understand.” We understand she means a plain old skirt. But a skirt fashioned out of a turtleneck or cardigan — now that’s another story, darling.
After the jump, the essentials of how to get Edie’s pantyhose-over-pants-under-skirt look. Note: You must pair with major attitude. Keep reading »
Keira Knightley seems to make period film after period film, and “The Edge of Love” doesn’t break the trend. In it, she and Sienna Miller play two women loved by the famous poet Dylan Thomas. The movie is out in very limited release in the U.S., but we think it looks worth Netflixing for a few reasons: 1) Lindsay Lohan was originally cast in the role Sienna plays, and we’d like to imagine how the train-wreck would have played it. 2) A first, we didn’t even recognize Sienna Miller. She had to put on a little weight for the role, and she looks lovelier than ever. 3) Matthew Rhys, aka Kevin Walker on “Brothers & Sisters,” plays Dylan Thomas. 4) Cillian Murphy and his baby blues.

John McCain went on “The Tonight Show” last night and spoke about the future of the Republican party and who’s leading the GOP. He mentioned several governors, and, apparently, he doesn’t consider former running mate Sarah Palin to be one of the “young, dynamic governors” in their party, because he intentionally didn’t mention her. Diss! [The Daily Beast via AOL News] Keep reading »
Last night on “Dancing With The Stars,” the contestants had to dance the Rumba, a romantic dance that was difficult for shy, virginal 17-year-old Shawn Johnson to embrace, especially after her partner Marc Ballas got a boner (click after the jump to check it out!) during their live routine a couple weeks ago. Not to worry, though — Marc had a plan to help her relax and imagine herself in love with him! Since Shawn will likely miss her own prom this year if she continue with the competition, Marc surprised her with an impromptu prom one day last week. He filled their rehearsal room with balloons and a disco ball, wore a tux and wide grin, and handed Shawn a skin-tight, flesh-colored gown — you know, just what every teenage girl wants from a dude who got a boner for her on national TV! “I wanted to recreate the prom so it could help us get in the character of the dance,” Marc explains. He doesn’t mention how he recreated an after-prom, but after watching their Rumba last night, I think it’s safe to say the gown stayed on.

On last night’s episode of “30 Rock,” the company has to undergo some cuts, and Liz Lemon is told she has to pare away 25 percent of her budget. But she can’t find anything to get rid of (straw are not an unnecessary expense!). Liz tries to play by the rules, pleading her case to the consultant who is overseeing the budget cuts, but that doesn’t help. So, she decides to try to give the budget consultant “a taste of the Lemon” in exchange for her staff not getting fired. Things work out in the end, but not because she dons a slutty red ruched dress and hooker boots.
