Silly Bandz Bans?

Silly-bandz  Did you know that Silly Bandz were a thing? Because I've been wearing them in my hair for a couple of months now and I had no idea.  

Of course you did, didn't you? 

Is a five-year old going to cut me for my pig? 

That sounds all kinds of wrong. 


Why I Won't Be Recapping Project Runway Next Season

Runway  Lifetime has decided to add an extra half hour to Project Runway in season 8. An extra half hour! Will dresses that look like toilet-dyed ass at 10:45 look any better at 11:15? 


Flashback Friday - 80s Fashion Regurgitation Edition

Jellies  Until recently, most people I knew agreed that the 80s were a terrible era for fashion. Then one day, many of those same people began looking like a John Hughes movie threw up all over them. Thus, today's Flashback is brought to you by the scourges of 80s "style" that have inexplicably wormed their way back into contemporary fashion.

Don't Tell Mom The Babysitter's Dead Lives. Is Nothing Sacred?

Dont_tell_mom_the_babysitters_dead Because every movie concept that could ever possibly exist has apparently already been imagined and fully- realized, every fucking week another studio announces another inevitably-terrible, uncalled-for remake. This week's impending-bastardization announcement comes courtesy of the creative geniuses at The Mark Gordon Company, who are reportedly looking for writers for a Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead remake.

Giveaway! Win an Autographed Copy of Laura Bennett's Book "Didn't I Feed You Yesterday?"

Picture 115On Friday night, Laura Bennett -- Project Runway finalist, glamorously fabulous designer, all-around awesome person -- pulled two gorgeous dresses out of her bag and asked me which one she should wear to her book signing party (which was part of a big swanky fashion event at Bethesda Row, outside DC). Later, we photobombed Tinsley Mortimer together. I was holding a plate full of pigs-in-a-blanket. I am not making any of this up.

FOX and ABC Still Hate Plus-Sized People

Lane-bryant-ashley-graham-bra-ad-underwear-lingerieFOX and ABC got caught being prejudiced again. The last time I wrote about them it was about how they wouldn't run a gay dating commercial. This time, ABC refused to air a Lane Bryant commercial because it showed too much cleavage.

Johnny Weir Skates To Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance"

Hot or Not? Iron Man 2 Premiere

Robert Downey Jr at the Iron Man 2 Premiere  Today's Hot or Not? is a double feature: Scarlett Johansson and Gwyneth Paltrow, both wearing white in two starkly (see what I did there?) different looks. Which of these red carpet looks gets your electromagnetic pulse generator running?

Consider Pants, Pamela Anderson!

 Celebrities have a lot on their minds. Even with their PAs and entourages there to help them, sometimes they can end up leaving the house looking less than put together. Sometimes? They forget their pants. It appears Pamela Anderson is having one of those days:

Lady Gaga vs Grace Jones: Who's Original Now?

Lady-gaga-grace-jones-thumbnailAh, Lady Gaga: the most shocking semi-androgyne to ever break out of the usual pop star mold while almost never wearing any pants. Oh, wait, that's not right. Wasn't there someone else? There was!

Who has been recording music since 1977? Who hung out with the likes of Brian Eno and played a muse to Andy Warhol? Who delved into the insanity of gonzo fashion when Gaga was not yet even born? Who has a film career that spans four decades? Who frightened me as a child with her segmented head on her 1985 "Slave to the Rhythm" album cover?

Grace Jones.

Lady Gaga seems to have it now, but Grace Jones had it first. The question is, who really has it?


Katy Perry Wearing Toddler Couture

Katy-PerryThis is actually kind of cute!  I might go get a matching pair for my two little girls.  I didn't know they made clothes like these in grown-up sizes.  You learn something new every day.

Really??!! Apparently We're 'Generation Mix' Now

New-generation-mix  If I were to make a list today of the top three things I hate, in the order of how much I hate them, it would go something like this: 1. Cucumbers; 2. Hitler; 3. Consumer market research. 

That's right: I hate market research only slightly less than mass murder. Apparently, unsatisfied with the equally arbitrary categories of "Generation X" and "Millennials"  market researchers have made up a hybrid term for 24-34 year-olds: GenMix.
