Hey guys, guess what I am doing on October 15? Oh, I dunno, seeing Ryan Gosling’s band Dead Man’s Bones perform in New York City. No biggie. It’s not like I’ve started planning various outfits that might seduce The Gos. [I have.]
Actually, the coolest part about the Dead Man’s Bones tour is that Gosling and band mate Zach Shields are auditioning local choirs in each of the 12 spots they’re hitting to perform with them. Their debut album features vocals from the Silverlake Conservatory Children’s Choir, but they can’t bring the tykes on tour with them, so they’re giving the opportunity to new kids in each town they visit.
Um, does anyone have a singing child I can borrow to pass off as my own? Email me. [Scanner] Keep reading »
editor-in-chief Anna Wintour was on “The Late Show” last night to promote “The September Issue” and she was everything I expected and more. She trotted out in her signature sunglasses, didn’t let Letterman intimidate her in the slightest, and, perhaps unexpectedly, she was funny
! She poked fun at Dave’s socks and sincerely seemed to suggest he buy Thom Browne suits, with their cropped pant leg, so he could show them off, and despite a reputation for being completely unapproachable, she was actually quite self-deprecating. Check out the interview above! Keep reading »
Get ready to die, shut it down, and go bananas. Tonight is the season two premiere of “The Rachel Zoe Project,” which means Rachel, Taylor, Brad and the gang will be exploding blood vessels over fashion “disasters” that aren’t really such a big deal after all. Other than that, this week brings the season finale of “Nurse Jackie,” the season premiere of “Crash Course,” and always delectable episodes of “Project Runway” and “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.” Keep reading »
The Contraception Opera, “starring sperm and egg,” combines two of my favorite things — sex education and interpretive dance! Genius. [via BuzzFeed

We heart vampires
, but even we know they’re just having their day in the sun. Vamps are a trend that will soonish return to the darkest depths of subculture. But who, or rather, what will rise to take their place? Benicio del Toro
is backing the werewolf camp. Check out this trailer for his new flick, “The Wolfman.” Oh, if only we could get our claws in him! But is Benicio beastly enough to reign in world werewolf domination? Or will zombies kill it? Let’s examine the evidence in this blood-thirsty supernatural face-off!

As I said before, there might not be a point in going to see “The September Issue,” since so many clips from the documentary are available online. But you’ll find me at the movie theater on Friday night, when the movie comes to NYC, especially after watching the above clip in which fabulous editor-at-large André Leon Talley shows off his Louis Vuitton-Damon-Dash-Ralph-Lauren-Piaget tennis ensemble.

When Miss Venezuela Stefania Fernandez, 18, was crowned Miss Universe, she got so excited she could barely keep the crown on her head. It’s the second year in a row that a Venezuelan has won the tiara, and the sixth win since the pageant began. So why all the wins? Because in Venezuela, beauty pageants are kind of like a national sport. After the jump, the insane details of this pageant-obsessed culture. Keep reading »
After alleged murderer and former “Megan Wants A Millionaire” contestant Ryan Jenkins was found hanging from a coat rack in a Vancouver motel room yesterday, the mother and ex-boyfriend of Jasmine Fiore, the woman he allegedly murdered, sat down on the “Today Show” to talk about this crazy mess. The ex, Robert Hasman, claims he didn’t know about Ryan, but said he’d been exchanging intimate messages and emails with Jasmine. In their last text, Jasmine supposedly told him she was coming to Las Vegas so the two could reunite. Keep reading »
Awkward. In this random clip, Bravo’s Andy Cohen and Jeff Lewis of “Flipping Out” talk to Kim Zolciak
of the “Real Housewives of Atlanta
” about her wig. The best moment: when Andy leans in close to try to determine where her real hair ends and the wig begins, and looks kind of like a monkey checking a buddy for ticks. Another highlight: Jeff calling her wig a “Halloween mask,” and Kim getting a bit testy. Apparently, for all of us dying to see what she looks like sans Barbie hair, she often goes wigless at the beach. I can already hear the sound of the paparazzi setting up their long-range cameras now.

Glamour has received loads of praise after publishing a photo in their September issue of plus-sized model, Lizzie Miller. Lizzie, along with Glamour‘s editor-in-chief, Cindi Lieve, was on “Today” this morning to talk about the positive response to the photo — which shows Miller naked, with un-airbrushed stomach pudge — and Lieve vowed that her magazine would be including more models like Miller in the future. Sounds amazing, but we’ll believe it when we see it! Keep reading »
