That Sassy Girl - 30 Oct 2013 05:44
OOTD: Knit Top and TaperedIf you are looking for a pair of pants that is figure flattering and on trend right now, it is the tapered trousers. These trousers taper down to the ankle thereby highlighting the thinnest part of... the leg. The fit is relaxed making these super comfy much like boyfriend jeans.

Pamela Anderson Cuts Her Long Hair Into Platinum Pixie 'Do

The Huffington Post - 31 Oct 2013 00:02
Pamela Anderson Cuts Her LongFor the first time in 20 years, Pamela Anderson has short hair, and it looks amazing on her. Anderson has had the same long, platinum locks since 1992. So, it was a shock to see the 46-year-old... bombshell step out in Los Angeles Wednesday (Oct. 30) with not just a haircut, but a super short pixie cut, notes Us Weekly. The former "Baywatch" star was photographed with her ex-husband and rumored boyfriend, Rick Saloman, walking through a parking lot. Anderson looked demure in her new 'do, striped dress, white sweater, sunglasses and ballet flats. She is the latest celeb to shed her tresses; earlier this week, Jennifer Hudson also debuted a super-short hairdo at BET's Black Girls Rock event. In August, Beyonce swapped her long locks for a pixie cut, but wound up adding extensions back on....

You Can Buy the Jean PaulIf you haven't been able to visit the traveling retrospective to Jean Paul Gaultier (the avant-garde exhibit is now open at the Brooklyn Museum!), Farfetch is offering you the next best thing.... Starting today, you can buy a piece of fashion history. The digital high-fashion retailer has partnered with London-based boutique House of Liza to sell 50 never-before-worn pieces from Gaultier's archives. The vintage items, mostly from his early runways, include the cone bra knit dress (a version of which was infamously worn by Madonna) from his Fall 1985 collection, shirts from his very first menswear show, and his iconic sailor stripes. Peruse the merchandise, but don't hesitate: these one-of-a-kind pieces won't be up for grabs for long.

Thanks to a new mini-film by Weird Days, by way of Myspace, you can tick-tock the rise of the man once known simply as Horst Christian Simco. "Myspace helped me tell the story about how I became the Neon Icon in a new artist film starring me and my pup - internet sensation, Jody Husky. I had a vision, and the Myspace team helped bring it to life complete with water slides, models, gold chainz, and kids eating snow cones," Riff Raff himself said of the clip premiering exclusively on HuffPost Entertainment.

Who Is Banksy?

The Huffington Post - 31 Oct 2013 06:01
Who Is Banksy?One afternoon in 2006, a Frenchman and a guy who looked like a plumber drove up to a warehouse at the end of a quiet commercial street east of downtown Los Angeles. The Frenchman was Thierry Guetta,... aka Mr. Brainwash, an eccentric filmmaker who frequently collaborates with the elusive British street artist known as Banksy. The other man -- the plumber type -- was Banksy himself. So starts the juiciest personal story in the repertoire of Joel Unangst, the owner of the warehouse he said Banksy and Guetta drove up to that day. The two men were scouting a site for "Barely Legal," Banksy's first American art show, which notoriously featured an illegal painted elephant, and would prove instrumental to the artist's rise. The deal went through. True to form, Banksy liked the building's for its...

The Princess and the Queens

Style - 31 Oct 2013 06:00
The Princess and the QueensThe very first shot of Oliver Hirschbiegel's Diana, which opens in the U.S. tomorrow, doesn't feature the Princess of Wales. Rather, the frame depicts a tossed-aside Lady Dior bag—diamond quilted... and instantly recognizable—providing the first of many sartorial nods to the late princess: It was Diana herself for whom the purse was named. Last night, too, there were plenty of fashion hits at the film's Cinema Society and Allure-hosted premiere in New York City. Lead actress Naomi Watts, for one, stole the red carpet in a Spring '14 Michael Kors stunner. When pressed as to a favorite fashionable moment of Diana's, Watts replied: "The blue one-shouldered Versace dress that she wore in Sydney. It was very strong—and could still be worn today." Anna Sui's? "That dress from when she danced...

Shakespeare in the PlazaBetween fashion weeks, Lincoln Center seems relatively desolate without the obligatory crush of photographers and would-be street-style stars. But last night the plaza came alive again, as paps and... the smart set turned out for American Ballet Theatre's season kickoff gala. The annual bash (sponsored this year by Clinique and Badgley Mischka) gives ballet-goers a chance to sample the company's offerings in a condensed program. Though Balanchine and two world premieres made for a weighty bill, it was the debut of Alexei Ratmansky's The Tempest that was on the lips of everyone from Bebe Neuwirth and Sigourney Weaver to James Lipton, who reminisced about his own ballet studies. Others were happy just to be there, no matter what the material, like Jessica Stam, who was preparing to jet off to...

Board MeetingNever ones to shy away from a splashy themed affair, Carol Lim and Humberto Leon hosted a dinner for their new Kenzo Kalifornia bag at The Berrics skate park in downtown Los Angeles last night. The... just-launched design, equal parts Parisian heritage and West Coast cool, is a reference to the designers' adolescence among skate culture. Co-hosts China Chow and Rashida Jones arrived with artist Alex Israel and stylist Brad Goreski, respectively. And the dinner, prepared by chef Nina Clemente of Root of All Food, brought out the likes of Fergie, Jenny Lewis, Rose McGowan, Miranda July, and Jessica Alba.

Is That You Pamela Anderson?

Refinery29 - 31 Oct 2013 01:00
Is That You Pamela Anderson?Pamela Anderson has made the (pixie) cut -- and, damn, it looks good. The Internet has been atwitter after the star was spotted minus her signature long locks (Us Weekly went so far as to say that... she's "unrecognizable" without her flowing blonde mane). We, for one, think Pam looks amazing with her short hair -- and we're thrilled to see another celeb jumping on the chic-pixie bandwagon. Anderson paired her Hepburn-esque (Or is it Michelle-Williams-esque?) cut with an equally demure outfit, adding to transformative effect of her dramatic chop. Yes, it's a bit surprising -- but Anderson has always seemed determined to keep us guessing -- remember her columns for Jane back in the day? We're just wondering if this new cut will usher in a new phase of Anderson's career -- here's hoping. What...

How Not to Build a Boat

The Huffington Post - 31 Oct 2013 00:53
There is always some progress, even when things are at their worst, because then you don't have to do over again all the negative things you've already done. -- Alberto Giacometti Through an unlikely... and unintended set of circumstances I met a fit and weathered man a few years my senior. While showing me around his goat farm, he referred in passing to his boat, and, intrigued, I asked him about it. He said he'd been building a 105' sloop for the past twenty years, and was still working at it. I said I wanted to have a look. Within an hour my son and I were trying to be of some use and trying not to get caught up in the lines. I expressed my admiration for what he had accomplished, and he suggested what he had learned in the process of building a boat for past twenty years -- "I know how...

Nathan Walsh at Bernarducci Meisel

The Huffington Post - 31 Oct 2013 00:49
Nathan Walsh at BernarducciNathan Walsh -- a realist painter who lives and works in York, England -- initiates his views of American cities with a single postcard-sized study which he then enlarges into a rigorous... blueprint-like underdrawing. As he layers and builds his paintings Walsh subtly alters and enhances the perspective of each scene: he feels that artifice is necessary to make his works convincing. Although he does use photographs as one of his source materials, Walsh does not define himself as a Photorealist. "You almost need to create the space from scratch, using the photographs only as a guide," he explains: "If you don't do that it won't be convincing as a painting." Transamerica, 180 x 123 cms., oil on linen, 2013 Visitors to his upcoming exhibition at Bernarducci Meisel Gallery will be able to use a...

It Is Decided, The Met Can Officially Take Your Money

The Huffington Post - 31 Oct 2013 00:05
It Is Decided, The Met CanThe Metropolitan Museum must have breathed a giant sigh of relief this Wednesday, when Judge Shirley Werner Kornreich definitively ruled in favor of the institute's infamous admission policy. The New... York State Supreme Court decision put an end to two lawsuits plaguing the Manhattan art haven, both of which claimed that the "suggested" $25 entrance fee was misleading to patrons and violated an 1893 law that requires the taxpayer-funded museum to open its doors to the public for five days and at least two nights per week. According to The New York Times, Judge Kornreich disagreed with the plaintiffs, ruling on the side of the art world's Goliath: "For those without means, or those who do not wish to express their gratitude financially, a de minimis contribution of a penny is accepted....

Exercise May PreventIllustrated by Isabelle Rancier. You've probably heard that physical activity can help you get out of a funk, but according to a review by PhD candidate George Mammen published in the October issue of... the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, busting a move on a regular basis can actually help you prevent depression in the long run, too. As if that wasn't enough to get you to lace up your running shoes, you need not spend endless hours in the gym either. In fact, Mammen analyzed over 26 years of research to conclude that even moderate levels of activity for just 20 to 30 minutes a day can do the trick. This information is music to the ears of mental-health experts who are seeking an alternative to treating depression beyond pricey meds. "Our health system is taxed. We need a prevention...

Proof of that is the latest story from photographer Brandon Stanton's Humans of... New York (HONY) project. Thanks to Stanton, Facebook, and the generosity of strangers, a little boy in Ethiopia may be getting adopted. On Tuesday, Stanton posted a photograph of a cameraman named Duane. According to a HONY Facebook post, Duane and his wife had been unable to conceive, and had recently decided to adopt a 7-year-old Ethiopian girl named Chaltu who'd been blinded in one eye. When Stanton asked if he could share Duane's story on HONY, the cameraman shyly made one request. "Would there be any possibility that you could help us raise the adoption fees to get her a brother?"

Vienna's Leopold Museum Director Resigns In Protest

Weinhäupl's partner Sandra Tretter, who worked for the Leopold Museum for many years, and his brother also have positions on the foundation's board.

How Do You Shop Underwear for Halloween?

The Huffington Post - 30 Oct 2013 23:19
How Do You Shop Underwear forWhen you think of Halloween and underwear, Mean Girls may come to mind. You know, that scene where they say that Halloween is just an excuse to dress in barely there underwear and pose as a "sexy"... version of something for the night. When you work in an industry full of male underwear models, you see that this statement is true for men as well as women. We at The Underwear Expert definitely acknowledge the idea of the sexy underwear Halloween costume, but we'd like to offer you some other suggestions about how you can get your underwear drawer into the spirit of Halloween. Literal & Campy Halloween is the start of tacky sweater season. What started out as horrific style, the tacky sweater has etched a place in "ironic/not ironic" parties around the world.

Between her June wedding to financier Christopher O'Neill, her job in New York and her pregnancy, the 31-year-old has had a lot on her plate these days. In the issue, Madeleine reportedly talks to Elle about her pregnancy, saying it happened "a little fast and very suddenly." And if the rumor mill is to be believed, she and O'Neill are expecting a baby girl (Prince George's future girlfriend, perhaps?).

Insurance company AXA interviewed male and female Londoners about the little things they did... to boost their moods. Here's what the 2,728 women surveyed said would cheer them up on a bad day: 1. A hug. And what could be better than hugging a loved one? Besides being comforting, it lowers your blood pressure, boosts your memory, releases bonding hormone oxytocin and reduces stress and anxiety. 2. Seeing friends. A July 2013 study found that people's happiness increased by 8 percent when they spent time with friends. Though dragging yourself out to happy hour or the movies might be the last thing you feel like when you're in a bad mood, it might be the best thing you can do for yourself....

Jokes and hypotheticals aside, the striped top is by far one of the hardest working items in our closets. It's a piece that we truly get the most leverage out of, since it can be worn solo or paired with anything -- literally, anything -- because it acts as a neutral (as far as we're concerned).

And, in some weird way, we're indebted, too. Upton's a fantastic model and her Golf Digest cover is a testament to that.

So, when we first caught wind of her Golf Digest role, we threw a little side eye. Kate Upton, Arnold Palmer, and the very buttoned-up sport?

Now, TheWrap notes that Taylor-Johnson has closed a deal to take on the role after verifying that the "Ultron" shooting schedule won't clash with his publicity tour for the forthcoming "Godzilla" remake. Quicksilver is set to appear in two much-anticipated comic book sequels, "Ultron" and "X-Men: Days of Future Past." In "X-Men," the superhero's evil origins will be on display, with Evan Peters ("American Horror Story") taking that role.

You can really feel like a winner until you sign on and are reminded of that one thing that you haven't yet gotten around to (i.e. your mother forwarding you that article about your increasing age and waning fertility, or the way your favorite pair of jeans pinch you a little too tightly when you sit down lately).

After My Mastectomy

Refinery29 - 30 Oct 2013 22:30
After My MastectomyPhoto: Courtesy Of Bessie Oster. I liked my old breasts -- I really did. That wasn't my issue. As a friend said, "You have ticking time bombs strapped to your chest." I inherited the breast-cancer... gene mutation, BRCA1, from my mother, who first developed cancer in her 30s. This gave me a nearly 90% chance of developing breast cancer, and also a high risk of ovarian cancer. Choosing to remove a part of my body -- a favorite part -- was not an easy move. I got the genetic test results at 30. While I believed that elective surgery was the right move, I was terrified that my spirit would somehow be broken by the gravity of the decision. I am physically strong. (I'm a damn good arm wrestler and have completed a few triathlons, albeit very slowly.) I'm pretty much game for anything. (At 18, I...

Art Words: Holding It Together

The Huffington Post - 30 Oct 2013 22:12
Pieces of heart. Disconnection from Self. The shadow that surrounds you: What you know you could be, what you fear you might be. Caught up in a past you're afraid to look at. Hold it, grab it, try to... keep it contained. But it MUST be released. It will NOT be contained. It REFUSES to stay silent. It will destroy you, it will destroy people, it will destroy nations. It denies truth and it takes no responsibility. Souls are shattered, bones are shattered, lives are lost, you are lost. But look up above. Look at that shadow. Embrace it, be with it, commune with it. Find yourself. Look anew upon the world. Look deep within and let your Self be seen. It is magnificent.

Celebrity Photobombs Make TheThe Internet went wild this week over a photo of a peppy Australian teenager who struck selfie gold: She was photobombed by none other than Beyonce. But the 15-year-old is hardly the first to get the... Hollywood treatment -- celebrities love to p-bomb each other and, at times, us plebeians. And we commoners love to return the favor, of course.

Marvin Gaye's ChildrenLOS ANGELES -- LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Two of Marvin Gaye's children sued Robin Thicke and his collaborators on the hit song "Blurred Lines" on Wednesday, accusing them of copyright infringement and... alleging music company EMI failed to protect their father's legacy. Nona Marvisa Gaye and Frankie Christian Gaye's suit is the latest salvo in a dispute over Thicke's hit and whether it copies elements of Gaye's song "Got to Give It Up." Their lawsuit seeks to block Thicke and collaborators Pharrell and T.I. from using elements of their father's music in "Blurred Lines" or other songs. Thicke has denied copying Gaye's song for "Blurred Lines," which has the longest streak this year atop the Billboard Hot 100 chart and has sold more than 6 million tracks so far. Much of the lawsuit focuses on claims...

Essentials: Eugene Tong

Hypebeast - 30 Oct 2013 22:02
Essentials: Eugene TongWhile it seems a pronounced trend today, Eugene Tong's innovative manner of dress in cut & sew menswear mixed with streetwear and high fashion was one of the first examples to polarize high against... low. Admired by such photographers as Tommy Ton and Scott Schuman of The Sartorialist, Tong's signature look is one that exudes a similar level of taste and consideration to his selection for this edition of HYPEBEAST Essentials. Style director for Condé Nast-owned Details Magazine, where the Taiwanese-born creative has held various positions over his career, Tong has also received acclaim for providing styling cues for New York label Public School. For a self-proclaimed shoe enthusiast, we did notice the absence of any form of footwear, yet Eugene did present a range of distinguished pieces...

The Happening Book Will MakePhoto: Via TheHappeningBook.net. It's a thrilling experience to meet the old you. Discovering things we wrote when we were children, at least in my experience, invokes a two-pronged emotional... response: a feeling of familiarity mixed with one of bewilderment and novelty. This happened to me recently when I was sorting through a box at my mother's house, and I came across several of my fifth-grade journal entries and book reports. Who was this kid, I wondered, who was so captivated by Stephen King novels (which I haven't picked up in years now) and shark attacks (which is still a powerful phobia/obsession)? The anonymous author of a site called The Happening Book is publicly undergoing that same nostalgia. Each day, he publishes a page of a journal he unearthed from his school days, written...

Calling all Halloween procrastinators: Wouldn't it be awesome if you could ditch the expensive and/or complicated getup and simply head out on the town to celebrate in... clothes that you already own? It's possible -- if you put your makeup bag and brushes to work, that is. Exhibit A: When R29 friend (and contributing editor at Autostraddle) Kristen Ford ran out of time to create a Halloween costume, she decided to don primary-colored clothing and let this crazy-cool Lichtenstein-inspired pop art makeup be her costume. The best part? Ford used makeup that she already had to create the look (i.e. no special trips to Ricky's required). Ford used a combination of Maybelline Eyestudio Master Precise Ink Pen Eyeliner and MAC Fluidine to draw comic-book-worthy black...

How To Spy On Someone (YouPhoto: Courtesy of Sony Pictures. Maybe you've watched too much Bored To Death -- or seen this Kardashian shenanigan one too many times -- but at some point, you've probably considered indulging your... snoopy side. (Yes, we're talking about spying.) From Harriet the Spy to Agatha Christie's pro PIs, detectives have that effortlessly cool, super-subtle vibe down, and they make the task of tailing someone look like a thrill ride. Note: It is pretty creepy (and often illegal) to stalk people -- so we're not condoning that. But, should you need to track someone's movements, Lifehacker has a handy tutorial to ensure you don't get busted. A sample tip: Sitting in the front seat of your car and staring directly ahead of you is an easy way to get noticed. A real PI would use a car's side and...

What I came to find was that people are continually incorporating Warhol into their homes in creative ways, making work that is so well-known and mass produced feel fresh and interesting.

'Last Vegas' Review: It's 'TheLOS ANGELES -- LOS ANGELES (AP) -- As creaky as an arthritic hip, "Last Vegas" does for four leading stars of the '70s and '80s what movies like "Tough Guys" and "Grumpy Old Men" did for survivors of... Hollywood's storied Golden Age: It lets them show they can still throw a punch, bust a move, and get it on, and that they're not quite ready for the Motion Picture Home just yet. Beyond that, this genteel "Hangover" for the AARP crowd has little to recommend it, though a smattering of funny gags and the nostalgia value of the cast keeps the whole thing more watchable than it has any right to be. One doesn't exactly expect "Death in Venice" from a movie that begins on a shot of female cellulite jiggling beneath the surface of a Florida community pool. But as various senior-centric pics have...

Photoshop 'Body Evolution' Video Blows Our Minds

The Huffington Post - 30 Oct 2013 21:55
Photoshop 'Body Evolution'We've been told time and time again that Photoshop is playing tricks on us, stretching, smoothing and buffing the models in magazines and ads to make them even more gorgeous (and less realistic). But... just how much can airbrushing really change? Just watch this mind-blowing video, "Body Evolution." The video, created in 2011 by GlobalDemocracy.com to demand a mandatory disclaimers on all photos of airbrushed models, demonstrates just how much a computer is capable of changing a body. While we can't be 100 percent certain the video, which surfaced again recently, is representative of what happens behind-the-scenes at every magazine today, it does make you wonder... If models are getting the treatment seen in this video, it's no surprise lingerie model Erin Heatherton once said about her...

Wearing the full feathered-head-to-platformed-toe look from Louis Vuitton, Mother Monster posed for paparazzi after wrapping up a taping on The Graham Norton Show. True to the runway styling, Gaga wore the sheer shirt without a bra and the spangled, black trousers with foot-high platforms (kudos for nailing that apathetic pout as well).

But, as we learned in Rolling Stone's brief but entirely fascinating profile,... that doesn't stop the pop vultures from swooping in on her: Lorde tells Jonah Weiner that she has been approached by the famous Dr. Luke, a.k.a. Luke Gottwald, the man behind much of Katy Perry and Ke$ha's respective success. No big thing. "I'm excited to maybe work with him -- for other people...not so much for my stuff. But, it'd be awesome to figure out that side of things. He's got, like, an algorithm that just keeps working," she says. So far, though, Lorde doesn't seem to have much need at all of that infamous algorithm. She has dominated the charts of late, catapulting past Miley Cyrus'...

Rituals of Rented Island -- named for artist Jack Smith's abhorrence of landlord privatization -- combines a variety of alternative, lesser known mediums in order to shed light on the works of twenty downtown artists from what was a unique moment in art history. The immersive exhibition takes museum-goers in and out of several re-stagings of performances by artists including Mike Kelley, Sylvia Palacios Whitman, and Jack Smith. The exhibition's opening follows the recent death of Lou Reed, whose wife Laurie Anderson's media pieces are featured in the retrospective. Reed's passing evokes the memory...

Tiossan Brings Us Global Beauty In The Raw

Refinery29 - 30 Oct 2013 21:15
Tiossan Brings Us GlobalIt takes a special beauty brand to be a global hit, but we think Tiossan's got a pretty fair shot -- it has a little something for everybody. Using Senegalese recipes, French fragrances, and... California green chemistry, the brand makes back-to-basics products incorporating the best-of-the-best natural ingredients from around the world. Basically, if this bottle had a passport, it'd have one heckuva collection of stamps. Plus, we love that Tiossan doesn't just source globally, but thinks globally, too: 10% of all profits go toward the creation and implementation of innovative educational programs in Africa, an effort close to the heart of its Senegal-born founder, Magatte Wade. We're all about using beauty as vehicle for change, so we're in total support of Tiossan's mission. And, we can't...

I have the greatest husband in the world, who lets me be me, be free and do what makes me happy. I would never want another man. He waved as I left. When I arrived in Paris, I found an email from my first boyfriend (at 13-14 years old) who was in Paris on holiday with his wife. I had to make them part of my birthday celebration week. We had not spent any time together since 1957, when we were a cute couple going steady at Kensington Jr. High School in Maryland and known for wearing matching outfits. How happy was I to become great friends again with Jim and...

I really do remember Peter Jackson saying to me, "You know that you have to do this in a British accent?" We heard back it was literally one of the worst auditions. Gyllenhaal isn't the only major actor who was discussed as a possibility for Jackson's blockbuster trilogy. Daniel Day-Lewis was one of the first actors that Jackson sought to play Aragorn, but Day-Lewis passed on the opportunity. "[This is] not meant to belittle those...

10 Tips for Finding Romance on Halloween

The Huffington Post - 30 Oct 2013 21:07
10 Tips for Finding Romance onHalloween is a great time of year if you're single and looking for a new romantic interest. Everyone is out and about, in a good mood and ready to have a fun evening. In fact, Halloween might be the... best night of the entire year to meet someone and find some lovin', so grab a costume or a mask and get out there. Here are some tips on how to make the most of the evening and meet someone great: 1. If you're going to a costume party, you must wear a costume, no matter what; no excuses. If you can't get into the Halloween spirit, chances are that you will not be meeting anyone. (Nobody wants a party pooper!) If you're having a really hard time, think of your costume as a way to get out of your shell and a way to become the person you always wanted to be. Think Clark Kent and Superman. Use your...

It is tempting to contrast "The Argument" at Theater J with its spiritual sister, "The Night Watcher," just two blocks away at the Studio Theatre. In writer-performer Charlayne Woodard's solo "Night... Watcher," the actress tells how, at a critical moment, she and her husband of many years agreed that they didn't want to have kids. In the fictional "The Argument," another woman has to fight for that same right, because the man in her life badly wants the child she's unexpectedly bearing.

"Play/Pause" isn't just the title of Susan Marshall's new work for six dancers; it also neatly sums up the structure. Casually dressed in leggings and T-shirts, the dancers play -- poking one another,... noodling around -- and they rest, then they play around some more and so on, in a steady start-and-stop rhythm. Same goes for the three musicians, who were seated to one side of the Kennedy Center's Terrace Theater stage Tuesday: Some sharp cracks on the drums and silence; a guitar riff thrashes about, then all you hear is heavy breathing. (David Lang, increasingly popular among choreographers, wrote the score.)

Cameos are a delicate art, especially here in L.A. It's not everyday that a music video pulls in the likes of Lindsay Lohan, Kanye West, Ashley Olsen, James Franco, Olivia Wilde, and a Marilyn Monroe... impersonator. Nope, Thirty Seconds to Mars' newest video for "City of Angels" is definitely not your run-of-the-mill YouTube clip. Of course, one just has to look at the frontman behind the band: the veritable celebrity that is Jared Leto. His 11-minute short film is a touching homage to Los Angeles, and the people that make it glow. Each star shares what they love about the city -- in Kanye's case, it's the "Pools, 1950s architectural homes, glamour," and so on. But, it's not all rose-tinted: "Fame is an illusion," says Ashley Olsen. Selena Gomez confides, "People try to tell me what to do...

The Huffington Post - 30 Oct 2013 20:39
Daniel Radcliffe To Play SebLONDON -- LONDON (AP) -- "Harry Potter" star Daniel Radcliffe has signed on to play British Olympic runner Sebastian Coe in a movie about rivalries on the running track. "Gold" will tell the story of... the tense rivalry between Coe and fellow middle distance runner Steve Ovett in the run-up to the 1980 Moscow Olympics, where Ovett won the 800 meters and Coe took the 1500 meters. Coe, also a gold medalist in 1984, went on to become a politician and headed the London organizing committee at last year's summer Olympics. The movie reunites the 24-year-old Radcliffe with James Watkins, the director of the 2012 film "The Woman in Black." Filming is expected to begin in in April 2014. Radcliffe's publicist confirmed Radcliffe's casting on Wednesday. The casting for Ovett has not yet been announced.

June Ambrose Reminds Us WhatJune Ambrose is a force. It's nearly impossible to put her fabulousity into words, but we'll try. Whether she's glamming up Kerry Washington for a magazine cover, designing a line of shoes for HSN and... a collection of sunglasses for Selima Optics, or outfitting Jay Z on a regular basis -- June is on the move and we love watching her work. And thanks to social media that's not too hard. With over 800k followers on Twitter and Instagram combined, it's safe to say that June's larger-than-life personality and chic point-of-view are beyond magnetic. But the New York City-based beauty isn't just an architect of style, she's also a wife and mother of two. With that said, it was obvious we needed to tap Ambrose for an episode of "Style In The Wild," our all-things-fabulous video series, to get the...

Noma Threatened to 'Blacklist'This guy's not going to be blogging about lighting torches for the next three months. Apparently, some disgruntled former worker at René Redzepi's acclaimed Copenhagen restaurant Noma supplied local... paper Jyllands-Posten with the standard-issue letter given to incoming stagiaires (basically kitchen interns, also called stages). In that letter was wording that claims the restaurant's proprietors submit the names of stages who leave before completing the requisite three-month stint to some nebulously maintained international "blacklist" of lame line cooks. The idea that the world's top chefs keep such a roster in circulation is hilarious (and untrue) — but it also demonstrates just how desperate these chefs are to keep the stagiaire system in place. Here's the wording in the letter:...

Was Ireland Baldwin's ChiefImage: Via Jezebel. The subject of offensive Halloween costumes is a very tricky one and, like anything dealing with political correctness, is bound to inspire lots of bitterness, yelling, and CAPS... LOCK. So, it was no surprise that when Ireland Baldwin posted photos of herself dressed as the Indian Chief from Peter Pan on Instagram and Twitter, people were quick to attack -- and viciously. While we're in favor of a more reasoned form of discourse, Baldwin seemed to have what was, in her mind, a pretty strong defense (even prompting her to call one Tweeter a "stupid batch"). This is the basic breakdown: A Native American costume was AN OPTION at a Halloween store. -- ireland (@IrelandBBaldwin) October 29, 2013 Baldwin cited the ubiquity of the costume as a justification. However, just...

Strange Bedfellows: 13 WeirdThe very act of going to a bar and finding a date is nearing ancient status these days.

Welcome to the age of eHarmony, where we can search for potential dates like Cher does her Clueless wardrobe while also checking our e-mail. My, how we've progressed. But, dating websites themselves are becoming passé as more and more of us accept our perma-mobile lives. Dating apps, though, are all the rage, and if you're not hip to the Tinder, well, you will be in due time. But, sometimes swiping left and right to find love isn't the most efficient way. Luckily, there are plenty of apps in the sea. Some work and some twerk, and others are outrageously bonkers. Medical records as a...

Roman Statue Of Eagle EatingA beautifully preserved statue of an eagle eating a snake is turning heads in England, with experts praising the artwork as one of the finest ever found from the Roman Britain era. The statue,... unearthed during exploratory excavation for a planned 16-story hotel in London's Aldgate neighborhood, is believed to have been carved from limestone in the late first or early second century, Bloomberg Businessweek reports. In pristine condition, the bust-sized statue depicts the struggle of good versus evil. Even for a country that prizes its archaeological finds, the praise being heaped on the statue so far is nothing short of effusive. A statement released by the Museum of London, where the eagle was put on display Wednesday and will remain for another six months, quoted several experts on the...

Marvel Studios Head KevinThere's a lot coming up in the Marvel theatrical universe, and there's no better person to ask about ongoing developments than the president of Marvel Studios, Kevin Feige. Next up for Feige is "Thor:... The Dark World" -- in which we once again find Thor (Chris Hemsworth) battling a cosmic threat (this time the Dark Elves of Svartalfheim), which eventually leads Thor back to Earth and reunited with Jane Foster (Natalie Portman). Oh, and then there's Loki (Tom Hiddleston), whom Thor must now ask for help - that is, if Thor can trust him. Feige had plenty more to say about everything that's upcoming in the world of Marvel. With the now well-known additional scenes added, was "Thor: The Dark World" the most difficult to finish? I mean, you know, many movies are difficult. I wouldn't say this...

Don't Be Clueless With ThePhoto: Courtesy of Zachary Shore. While we have the '90s to thank for the grungy flannels and beanies, it was also the time when preppy style thrived. Clueless left a marked impression on me -- even... though I didn't understand half of the jokes at the time. I dreamed of owning a revolving closet and dressing a computer-generated picture of myself every morning. The plaid, cropped sweaters, and knee-high socks that filled Cher's closet are now stocking my own shelves nearly two decades later. It goes without saying that I'm taking full advantage of the fashion resurgence of the '90s. Here, I'm wearing a vintage outfit I mostly thrifted from L.A.'s Painted Bird. Replete with a backpack and headband, don't I look like I graduated from Beverly Hills High with the class of '95? Vintage blouse,...

Soon, There Won't Be Enough Wine to Go Around

New York Mag - 30 Oct 2013 19:55
Soon, There Won't Be EnoughNow's the time to start that cellar. We are heading straight into a global wine shortage, at least according to a new report by Morgan Stanley. The world's wine supply — 2.8 billion cases worth —... is being guzzled up by France, America, and newcomer China, leaving an "undersupply of nearly 300 million cases" a year. Production fell by 5 percent last year, mostly owing to a notoriously low-yield vintage in Europe, while consumption only increased. Apparently, the worst is yet to come: The report suggests there's little value to boutique producers popping up in new wine regions, while indicating that New World producers like New Zealand and Chile have already hit their peak. Looks like we're holding out for China, which has begun producing more wine domestically, to unleash their version...

Thomas' riveting Fantagraphics book (and companion CD/MP3 on Light in the Attic Records), aptly titled Listen Whitey: The Sights and Sounds of Black Power 1965-1975 is a stunning culmination of Thomas' five year journey to compile the definitive aural document of the Black Power Movement.

Has anyone given me a ticker tape parade? No!" "And part of that was the baby coming out, right?" Kimmel said. "Yeah, but whatever. Who cares?" Garner joked.

Lena Dunham's Relationship With Delivery Food

Refinery29 - 30 Oct 2013 19:30
We've never met a delivery man we don't like. It's totally Pavlovian. The sound of the doorbell signifies that dinner has arrived -- and now it's time to eat. Of course, Lena Dunham knows what we're... talking about. In a recent New Yorker essay titled, "Deliverance," Dunham gives us a personal account of her preference for takeout over home cooking. You see, growing up in Manhattan, the Girls creator connected the doorbell with mealtime, too. She starts the piece with a humorous anecdote from when she was just four, "I am playing in a corner when the buzzer rings (another guest has arrived) and I cry out, 'Dinner's here!'" Instead, it's just her mom's friend (and, perhaps, a clue that the kitchen was likely underused). Dunham goes on to explain exactly why NYC delivery is so desirable:...

Spears has landed her first big post-royal gig, modeling the Winter 2013 collection for UK retailer Next. The clothes may be affordable (sweaters for $50, dresses for $80), but Spears wears it all like couture, making us grateful she didn't give up her day job just because she got married. Of course, she doesn't exactly need to work: The Daily Mail notes that Spears' husband, Rahim, is the oldest son of the Aga Khan IV, Imam of Shia Ismaili Muslims, and therefore set to inherit around $1 billion.

Rabbi Bans Soy Out of Fear It Promotes Gay Sex

New York Mag - 30 Oct 2013 19:05
Rabbi Bans Soy Out of Fear ItNo tofu for you. A rabbi of an ultra-orthodox Hasidic sect in Israel warns that eating soy products turns boys gay, and has allegedly banned all things tofu in his yeshiva. Granted, this is coming... from the same sect that previously banned the “normative incidental physical contact” known as the handshake, you know, for the same reasons. Estrogenlike chemicals in soy have indeed been linked to wonky hormone changes, but highly reputable sources hold that soy consumption decreases men's libido, rather than making them change teams; maybe the rabbi has just been reading too many Men's Health back issues, and taking claims that soy "has the power to undermine everything it means to be male" just a little too seriously.

Besides being delightful time capsules, vintage entertaining books can actually offer up some good advice. While the food may not always translate, there are many nuggets of information that are... useful for the modern host. Most recently, I've been engrossed by The Vogue Book of Menus and Recipes For Entertaining at Home, first published in 1964. While I don't plan on making aspic rings or ham mousse anytime soon, I did find some tips that are still applicable in 2013.

Google Glass Could Get You Pulled Over? Yep!

Refinery29 - 30 Oct 2013 19:00
Google Glass Could Get YouPhotographed by Molly DeCoudreaux Sure, we've chattered on about everything from the wow-worthy to the straight-up weird, wearable tech devices popping up these days. But, there is one place where... sporting these gadgets might not be the sharpest move: on the road. According to The Verge, Cecilia Abadie learned this lesson the hard way after she was swiftly pulled over by highway patrol in San Diego for sporting Google Glass. Some may argue that the gadget doesn't distract drivers, but a few states (namely Delaware and West Virginia) have banned them en route. A closer look at the ticket, which Abadie posted on her Google+ account, indicates that speeding may have been the bigger reason she was pulled over, but this definitely starts to raise eyebrows and pushes forth ongoing concerns about...

UNDERCOVER 2014 Spring/Summer Lookbook

Hypebeast - 30 Oct 2013 18:45
UNDERCOVER 2014 Spring/SummerDespite its name, Jun Takahashi's UNDERCOVER brand is continuing to transcend its 'cult favorite' status. The brand's Spring/Summer 2014 collection, which was recently released, finds the brand taking... a more pop-centric approach to its typically conspicuous aesthetic. This isn't necessarily a bad thing though, as the brand offers approachable contemporary garb for the season. Predominantly sticking to a black color palette, lightly waxed pants, tonal material-blocked vests, and somewhat humorous messages across sweatshirts and tees sum up the collection here. Making reference to vintage baseball and football uniforms with jackets, short-sleeved casual shirts, and other silhouettes, UNDERCOVER effortlessly gives sportswear a modern twist. Enjoy a look at the UNDERCOVER Spring/Summer 2014...

Dolce & Gabbana Gets Weird ForWhenever a brand unveils their holiday makeup collections, we expect to see the same line-up: red lips, metallic eyeshadows, and glitter nail polishes. All lovely things, mind you, but not exactly the... most convention-busting makeup. Clearly, Dolce & Gabbana was feeling a little over the been-there-done-that holiday line-up because its soon-to-be-released launches are anything but ordinary. The brand gave us an exclusive sneak peek at their version of holiday, and it is beautifully bonkers. Called Sicilian Jewels, the eight-piece line was directly inspired by the design duo's fall '13 runway collection and features lipstick and nail polishes modeled after rare gemstones -- emerald, amethyst, topaz, and ruby. Yes, we're talking bright green, purple, gold, and red. While jewel tones in makeup...

"disappointed" to describe our feelings, but as we sit here this morning, facing a day without even the hope of kittens, we realize that we can't even begin to describe our true pain. To soften the blow of a feline dream dashed, Uber offered a $10 account credit to select customers. The message accompanying the credit notification reads, "We saw that you requested UberKITTENS, and we weren't able to deliver the precious snuggles." The start-up claims the "demand for KITTENS was much higher than expected" causing many a sad face in Manhattan. The credit is good until November 29, and Uber suggests...

So it's not necessarily a surprise that the starchitect has recently ventured into an even more extravagant area -- the world of superyachts. Hadid has designed what very well might be the ocean's answer to today's bevy of vertical fetes of impossibility. The 420-foot "concept" yacht, created for Blohm+Voss, is a white monster of a boat, adorned with a sinuous exterior that blows the standard cockpit design, well, out of the water. Meant to evoke a "natural aesthetic" informed by the sea's underwater environment, its exoskeleton appears more...

Cult-artist Damien Hirst teamed up with the pop star for GQ's... British edition November issue. For the shoot, Rihanna took her clothes off, donned a metallic bikini bottom, and the rest is history. Quite literally, in fact, as Hirst's contribution pulled iconography from the ancient Greek myth of Medusa. He elevated Rih's pretty generic poses (how many variations of the finger-in-mouth pout are there, really?) into works of hyper-realistic art. Rih's a full-blown Medusa (with her head!) on the cover and continues to play with the reptiles as the shoot unfolds. Any one looking for a last-minute Halloween costume has lucked out with this one.

Emily Carr Painting 'The CrazyA painting by one of B.C.'s most famous artists is set to pull in as much as $1.6 million at auction. Emily Carr's "The Crazy Stair (The Crooked Staircase)" is on the block for anywhere between $1.2... million and $1.6 million as part of Heffel Fine Art Auction House's fall sale. The painting, which was produced between 1928 and 1930, shows an indigenous welcome figure in front of a house with a canoe in the foreground. Carr was heavily influenced by First Nation settings. In 1912, she visited a number of Kwakwaka'wakw, Nisga'a, Haida and Gitxsan villages and produced sketches that informed her work for the next 30 years, says the Heffel auction catalogue. The welcome figure in "The Crazy Stair" also appears in a watercolour painting that dates back to 1912. The painting was shown at the...

Photographer Stephen WilkesPhotographer Stephen Wilkes's haunting images of Superstorm Sandy's aftermath are available for public viewing in the photo exhibition "Rising Waters," currently at the Museum of the City of New York.... Wilkes was initially hired by TIME to photograph Hurricane Sandy's destruction through Instagrams in Connecticut, but instead he elected to rent a helicopter to take sweeping aerial shots of the New York and New Jersey coastlines. "For me, the photographs were about depicting the scale of the hurricane," explained Wilkes. "People heard 'Category 1,' and we tend to react by thinking numerically - the higher the number, the bigger the damage - but Sandy didn't fit that criteria. In this case, perception and reality were extremely different, and I wanted to show the reality." Wilkes flew over...

'All The Things She Said' Is Nostalgia Now

The Huffington Post - 30 Oct 2013 17:52
'All The Things She Said' IsWhen Richard Curtis' new film "About Time" begins, it's sometime around December of 2004. The audience knows this because during a New Year's Eve party at the home of the film's young protagonist... (played Domhnall Gleeson), the night's soundtrack includes t.a.T.u.'s "All The Things She Said." Curtis uses that song as an easy shorthand to express that the events of the movie are happening nine years ago, a.k.a. "All The Things She Said" is nostalgia now. via This might not come as too much of a surprise for some: The controversial single, which reached the No. 20 spot of the Billboard Hot 100 in 2003, celebrated its 10th anniversary this past summer with some internet-y fanfare.

iPad Air Reviews Are In & They're Great

Most all of them seem to be overwhelmingly positive. The new... iPad Air doesn't offer any crazy new hardware features -- a better processor, sure -- but the standout feature for reviewers and consumers is its more manageable size. Apple made the new iPad 20% thinner and 28% lighter than its predecessor, while narrowing the bezel but keeping the 9.7-inch screen the same size. And, that's enough to sell it, apparently. Former New York Times tech columnist David Pogue praises its slimness more than anything else: "This time around, there's no gotta-have new feature -- nothing on the level of the Retina screen, Siri voice recognition, or even a fingerprint...

Has Martin Scorsese softened with age? We think maybe. Need some evidence? Take a look at the trailer for his upcoming film adaptation of Jordan Belfort's memoir, The Wolf of Wall Street. Belfort was... a penny stocks swindler, who operated a boiler room brokerage firm in the late '80s and '90s. In 1998, he was indicted for securities fraud and money laundering, for which he served a 22-month prison term. Scorsese' version of the story seems to be a more lighthearted look at the economic crisis than we've seen in recent financial thrillers like Margin Call, or even 2000's Boiler Room (which was also inspired by Belfort's story). Here, we see Jonah Hill in an improbable set of false teeth, taping stacks of cash to a woman's breasts. Not exactly the shine box scene from Goodfellas. The film,...

Jewish Archive From Iraq To BeWASHINGTON -- WASHINGTON (AP) -- The tattered Torah scroll fragments, Bibles and other religious texts found in a flooded Baghdad basement 10 years ago testify to a once-thriving Jewish population... that's all but disappeared from Iraq. Recovered from the Iraqi intelligence headquarters and shipped to the United States for years of painstaking conservation was a literary trove of more than 2,700 books and tens of thousands of documents that are being digitized and put online. A sample of that treasure is being displayed for the first time this fall at the National Archives in Washington. "One thing that is particularly touching about them, or particularly interesting about them, is that they connect to a community that no longer lives in Iraq," said Doris Hamburg, the National Archives'...

Cavaradossi. Whatever else one may say about Luc Bondy's staging, and opera buffs have said a lot since its premiere four years ago, it is still a shocker. The Bondy version of Puccini's popular opera opened the Met season in 2009 and became an immediate touchstone of Peter Gelb's stewardship as the company's general manager. The production was excoriated by critics as a travesty and lauded by supporters as visionary. There was and still is no middle ground. Opera fans around the world will get a chance to decide for themselves which side they're on when the Met simulcasts a performance on Nov. 9 as part...

Then there was that time he said Adele was "a little too fat." This month... Lagerfeld outdid himself when he offered insight into France's social issues, mainly that ... More

John Galliano Makes A HugePhoto: Courtesy of Vogue. Two and a half years after his meltdown in a Parisian cafe, John Galliano has been making a return into fashion that's largely been careful and timid. After "interning" at... Oscar de la Renta for the fall '13 collection and taking a teaching spot at Parsons that was eventually canceled, Galliano has attempted to keep his return to the industry as private as possible. However, this November will mark a very public comeback to the halls of fashion's tippy-top, with a guest-editing spot in Vogue's December issue. Photo: Courtesy of Vogue. Shot by Tim Walker and starring Kate Moss, John Galliano acts as guest fashion editor for this selfie-style shoot that takes the Ballets Russes and Malcolm McLaren as inspiration. According to the editor's letter, by Alexandra...

Anna Wintour strikes us as the kind of woman who knows what she wants. Who's on the next cover of Vogue? How can the country better our foreign relations? What's for dinner? These are questions we... imagine she could answer without hesitation and with a thoughtful, intelligent response. But, in a talk at the WWD CEO Summit with CBS head honcho Leslie Moonves, La Wintour confessed that, like us, she's very well acquainted with the smile-and-nod technique, so to speak. "I think possibly what people working for one hate the most is indecision," the Vogue EIC and Condé Nast artistic director told Moonves. "Even if I'm completely unsure, I'll pretend I know exactly what I'm talking about and make a decision." And, with that, we have even greater admiration for the editrix. Hey, we're not saying...

Moxy and Maternity Bras

The Huffington Post - 30 Oct 2013 17:14
Moxy and Maternity BrasWhile on maternity leave with her first child, Uyo Okebie-Eichelberger decided that she would take on a small project -- revolutionize the way society viewed lingerie, one maternity bra at a time. Her... maternity bra remix epiphany came to her one day while she was shopping for lingerie post baby. "I couldn't find anything I liked in the nursing bra department," said Eichelberger. "All the options I saw were really matronly. All I could see were black, nude and white. Where were the girly options?" So, she decided to go out on her own and launch a lingerie line, You!Lingerie, within a year after her department store experience. With an MBA from Duke University and experience in brand management (she worked at Kraft Foods), she had experience launching new products. But, she had no previous...

What A Man's Shoes Say About Him (According To Us)

The Huffington Post - 30 Oct 2013 17:04
What A Man's Shoes Say AboutThe eyes might be the window to the soul, but shoes are the window to just about everything else. What you choose to put on your feet actually does reflect something about you, whether it be laziness... (socks with slip-on sandals), obliviousness (untied sneakers) or keen style savvy (those trendy suede desert boots we love so much). Plus, it's been reported that women judge men's shoes twice as much as men judge women's shoes -- so guys, it pays to step up your footwear game. Whether you realize it or not, here is what your shoes are saying about you.* Vans This low-maintenance guy is easygoing, possibly to the point where "chill" becomes "absentminded." We wouldn't be surprised if he's always arriving to things late. Desert Boots These suede ankle boots are trendy yet understated, masculine...

These 'Hangover' Costumes AreIn a sea of people trying to pull off a Miley Cyrus costume this Halloween, this photo of two friends going as Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis from "The Hangover" is a breath of fresh air.

6 Ways To Tuck In Your ShirtWe're going to let you in on a little secret: There is more than one way you can tuck in your shirt. We know, groundbreaking. But all jokes aside, the way you tuck in your shirt can totally change... your outfit. Whether you decide to do a front-tuck, a back-tuck or no tuck at all, there is an art to picking the right one, and that depends on what you're wearing and where you're going. To help you navigate the tucking terrain, we've demonstrated the six ways you can tuck in your shirt and laid out why you'd choose each one: The Loose-Tuck One of the most flattering tucks, the loose-tuck can conceal a tummy, while still helping to make you look put together.

Fame certainly comes with its drawbacks, but having celebrated couturiers design bespoke wedding gowns for you is not one of them. That's just a day in the life of Christina Ricci, America's favorite... slightly off-kilter sweetheart and newlywed. The other RiRi, if you don't mind our saying so, got married to James Heerdegen last week in Manhattan. And, while we were previously doomed to speculate about her nuptials, we were overjoyed when we spotted this picture she Tweeted of her amazing gown. Created for her by Riccardo Tisci, the lace veil is a perfect, ladylike accent to a modern silhouette. Nobody else could make a long train, crew neck, shoulder cutouts, and form-fitting bodice somehow work all at once -- and we're glad of it. Celebrity wedding dresses often lean toward the...

Rocking Out With Hunters' Fiery Front Woman

Refinery29 - 30 Oct 2013 17:00
Rocking Out With Hunters'Photo: Courtesy of Aliya Naumoff. Illustrated by Ammiel Mendoza. The assault of a Hunters live show is a see-it-to-believe-it sort of situation. Colead singers Derek Watson and Isabel Almeida have a... dynamic that's both intensely combative and seriously sexy (the two happen to be a couple, which could help explain it). It often seems like Almeida spends as much time writhing on the floor as she does singing into her mic. With a bright-pink shock of tussled hair, it's a vision of pure punk that could burn your retina. We caught up with the front woman after an especially rough week of shows at New York's CMJ festival to talk moving from Brooklyn to Philly, recording the band's self-titled new record, and its raucous stage presence.

Comfort Eating Disorder? It'sIllustrated by Austin Watts. It happens to the best of us -- a bad day at work necessitates a stop at the supermarket for a favorite pint of Ben & Jerry's. While there's nothing inherently wrong with... a little comfort food every now and then, if you find that you can't stop yourself once you start (to the point where you eat a whole cake or a party-sized bag of chips), you might be one of potentially millions of people who have binge eating disorder. According to the Daily Mail, psychiatric organizations have started to recognize binge eating as a mental disorder, classifying it, along with anorexia and bulimia, as an eating disorder. Similar to bulimia, binge eating disorder is characterized by compulsive eating, only in this case, there's no purge. It is often accompanied by depression,...

The story uses time travel to take us on an emotional journey and pose an important question: How do you make the most of life?

The Third Metric is about redefining success beyond money and power to include things like well-being, wisdom, wonder, compassion and giving.

Planning A Last-Minute Trip?When it comes to a great place to escape to (or even just a tops destination spot in Florida), Amelia Island is often overlooked. It isn't trendsetting or hip like Miami or glamorous like Palm Beach,... and in the dead of winter, the weather can be iffy because it's so far north. But, with that said, Amelia Island in the fall is heaven (and the temps are still in the 80s). The barrier island boasts 13 miles of wide and virtually empty beaches, a quirky and cool historic town, and acres of parkland to explore via bike, paddleboard, horseback ride, or even Segway. Oh, and another plus? Amelia Island isn't an insane trek, considering how secluded it feels once you arrive. It's just a two-hour flight from NYC to Jacksonville and then a 30-minute drive. We took the trip to check out the mellow...

French-influenced New American menu with dishes like braised pork belly, double-rib veal-chop, and foie gras with savory fig caramel. It's an expensive hotel restaurant, but that concept still seems to work for uptown crowds. Roman & Williams designed the 104-seat space, which has a graphic chessboard-style floor, an open chef's kitchen with red leather stools, and glazed brick walls. It's open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner every day of the week. Take a look at the space, the menus, and a few of the dishes, straight ahead.

Rihanna Shows Us Her Bikini Body Yet Again

The Huffington Post - 30 Oct 2013 16:16
Rihanna Shows Us Her BikiniRihanna has been quite familiar with controversy during her "Diamonds World Tour." From arrests and burglaries to being plagued with illness, it's always something with the "Pour It Up" singer. This... time, it's the gold standard: racy bikini photos. The Barbados beauty was in the Dominican Republic this week for another show. RiRi took it upon herself to play model (and at times mermaid) during some downtime, and then shared the pics with fans. She and her assistant, Jennifer Rosales, also challenged the laws of physics with some underwater boozing. Ariel, you have nothing on RiRi.

Celebrating Wicked: Samhain 2013

The Huffington Post - 30 Oct 2013 16:08
Celebrating Wicked: SamhainThe 10th anniversary of mega-hit Broadway musical Wicked is in full swing this Samhain- perfect timing. As witches celebrate the high holiday, this show, through its pre-history of the wicked witch of... the west, celebrates friendship and learning to see another way. Wicked is phenomenal, as a Broadway extravaganza of song, dance, humor, brilliant set design, gratifying drama, and profound psychological, sociological and political content. I've made the show into a sacred space for me, a place of pleasure, peace, and freedom. Sometimes public spaces can become that- a sanctuary. I expect to see it again soon, for the 19th time. Generally I'm not a musical lover- but thankfully there are grand exceptions to my rules. Elphaba is the witch, the quintessential outsider, green skinned and...

"One of my favorite moments is where she has the wedding dress on for the interview [scene] in 'Catching Fire.' It's a big cumbersome dress, and she fell down, so we played that over and over on the monitors. There's such a lack of pretense with Jen; she's more than happy to laugh at herself."

Sriracha Faces Shutdown ByPhoto: Courtesy Huy Fong Foods. Say it ain't so.

City officials say that the chili odor from the SoCal-based plant is so strong that it's a public nuisance, causing "burning eyes, irritated throats, and headaches." Some families have even felt compelled to move. The AP reports that Huy Fong initially cooperated with the city, but then denied that the smell emanating from its factory was a problem. The lawsuit would temporarily shutter the factory, soon leaving millions without any way to properly season their pho and pork buns. Don't even talk about those other knockoffs.

Dainty Baubles: The New Way ToPhotographed by Maria Del Rio. I've always loved delicate jewelry. There's something so sweet and feminine about a simple gold ring or chain bracelet. Sometimes, an outfit doesn't need a big statement... piece -- especially when you're wearing a loud color or print, like I am here. You just need a little something extra to pull the look together. My favorite combo is coupling embellished or rhinestone necklaces together to make something new out of what I already have. Wearing this navy pendant with a simple gold chain from T.J.Maxx adds the final touches to top off this loud outfit.

The highlights from my trip -- too many to count! --... included truffle cheese, an abundance of delicious mushrooms, freshly made green juice, drinks at the magical Frau Gerold Garden, and last and certainly the best, numerous trips to the local pharmacies. A trip to a Swiss pharmacy is like visiting a French or English pharmacy on steroids. Each one specializes in a certain something, and is filled with top-of-the-line skin care products. Everyone knows that the Swiss are known for meticulous, pristine, high-quality standards -- just think of its watches and chocolate. So, it's a no-brainer that its skin care is out of this world!

Miley Cyrus Wigs Out ForPerhaps, like all of us, Miley Cyrus is missing her long locks -- because this Halloween, she may don a familiar look. On Tuesday night (Oct. 29), the singer gave fans a sneak peek of what may be in... store for the upcoming holiday by tweeting a photo of herself in a long, golden brown wig. The look is strikingly reminiscent of her previous 'do (pre-Pixiegate, of course). Wigzzzzzz pic.twitter.com/gr45d1vrSd -- Miley Ray Cyrus (@MileyCyrus) October 30, 2013 The 20-year-old singer also posted a photo of herself in a purple wig with blunt bangs. We have to say, if it were a choice between her current 'do and the candy-colored locks, we'd probably go with the latter. Wigzzzzzz part 2 pic.twitter.com/6RlOe0rHLj -- Miley Ray Cyrus (@MileyCyrus) October 30, 2013 But we're not the only ones who'd...

The Other Critics: WellsHBD, here are two stars! This week, Adam Platt awareded "three stars for [Sean] Hergatt's cooking" but "minus a star (at least) for the room and location" at Juni — a sentiment also expressed in... Steve Cuozzo's review. Pete Wells checked in at Hearth nearly ten years after its original Times review, while Ryan Sutton visited Piora. Read it all, straight ahead. Pete Wells headed to Hearth, Paul Grieco and Marco Canora's Tuscan restaurant, which is approaching its tenth anniversary. He awarded it two stars, writing, Canora "gets few points for the originality of his vision. But for his fidelity to it, Mr. Canora’s score is off the charts." Hearth skips trends in favor of "diligent" cooking, offering "rich but not filthy-rich polenta" and "potato gnocchi wallowing in a wading pool of...

Arcade Fire Covers Lou Reed'sArcade Fire's ethereal quality is the perfect match for that of Lou Reed, as evidenced in the band's tribute to the late singer. During a live set on NPR, Arcade Fire launched into snippets of two... Reed classics, "Perfect Day" and "Satellite of Love." Both maintain the mellow, piano-infused delicacies of Reed's originals, complemented by the smooth vocals of Wan Butler and Régine Chassagne. The set was part of an appearance to promote "Reflektor," which was released on Monday. Arcade Fire are among a host of musicians who've paid tribute to the late singer, including Arctic Monkeys and Morrissey. Listen to Arcade Fire's entire NPR set below.

These 4 Young Women Are TotalThe value of a woman has nothing to do with how much skin she does or does not show on Halloween, or how she does or does not explicitly express her sexuality. In case you're still confused, allow... four young women to break it down for you. During round four of the Brave New Voices Grand Slam Finals 2013 held in Washington, D.C., over the summer, four teenage members of DC Youth Slam -- Hannah Halpern, Amina Iro, Reina Privado and Asha Gardner -- performed a powerful poem that eloquently captures the mixed messages young women receive -- especially around Halloween. This line perfectly sums up their message: "But no matter what garments we wrap ourselves in, a woman's status as trick, treat or geek is not up for discussion. A woman dressing, acting or being should be her choice." Halpern...

Got Itchy Skin? Here's WhatDesigned by Ammiel Mendoza. Remember that bout of poison ivy you got as a kid? Or maybe it was the chicken pox. The itchiness was relentless, but everyone around you kept advising: Just. Don't.... Scratch. Yet, that prickly, tingling sensation kept getting more and more agitating, to the point where ripping your eyeballs out would have seemed a welcome distraction. For some eczema sufferers, that hellish circumstance can be part of everyday life. Except unlike the chicken pox or poison ivy, many sufferers are uncomfortably stuck: Science hasn't pinpointed exactly why one to three percent of the adult population has eczema, nor does it have a cure for the skin disease. Perhaps most frustrating of all, the relief that any eczema solution provides for a patient can suddenly cease to work at any...

Uniqlo, Ines de la FressangeLanding a position as Karl Lagerfeld's and Yves Saint Laurent's muse is no easy feat, but Ines de la Fressange has an oh-so-French style sensibility that turns heads. Now, she's bringing her specific... brand of je ne sais quoi to the masses, designing a collection for Uniqlo. The retailer announced on Wednesday that it would be collaborating with de la Fressange, a former model, for its upcoming spring/summer collection, Women's Wear Daily reports. Naturally, Uniqlo says that the collection will have a "Parisian style" theme. While de la Fressange spent the better part of the '80s rubbing shoulders with the fashion world's elite, she has spent recent years penning a style guide, "Parisian Chic," and even mixing in some High Street brands, like H&M and Uniqlo, with her Chanel jackets and...

'Dallas Buyers Club' Review:-- The best parts of "Dallas Buyers Club" are of Matthew McConaughey, as HIV-positive Texas man Ron Woodroof, bucking like a bull in a Dallas hospital he refuses to let hold him. Woodroof is a... self-declared "goddamn rodeo." He's a cowboy hat-wearing, middle finger-flipping trailer park rat who spends his time fornicating, drinking, doing drugs and evading his debtors. Our first image of him (in what he'll later recall as the moment of his HIV infection), is spied through the panels of a dark rodeo pen while he has sex with a blonde. He's too messed up to much notice when a large man slides in behind him. When Woodroof, an electrician, later turns up in the hospital, he's diagnosed with HIV (this is 1985, early in the AIDS crisis). With a T-cell count of just nine, he's told that he has 30...

Taking It to The Streets

The Huffington Post - 30 Oct 2013 14:13
Taking It to The StreetsThere is nothing quite like getting dressed up on a Friday night and going to an art opening in a local gallery. Strolling with a glass of wine in your hand and talking about art may bring momentary... inspiration but what does it mean to take that feeling home and paint your life with it? Those who study ecopsychology understand that our environment affects our consciousness and the ways we think. Let's explore two artists whose work would be at home in the finest galleries, but are not content to keep their art (or the inspiration it creates) confined to gallery walls and coffee-table books. Artwork by Xavi Panneton When artists take their work to the streets, they shape the environment that we inhabit and affect our consciousness in subtle ways. Advertisers hire artists to create...

Library Catalog Cards For Classic Books (IMAGES)

The Huffington Post - 30 Oct 2013 14:07
Library Catalog Cards ForFor many of us, a trip to the library these days involves an efficient search on the branch's site, a hold placed on a hot new release, and a quick pop-in to collect our spoils. It's great that so... many libraries have gone digital -- and some have even gone bookless -- because to remain open, remaining relevant is key. Still, it's hard not to pine for the more quixotic days of dusty shelves and hand-written library catalog cards. For those of us who romanticize a more tactile library experience, Chronicle Books has created stationary from images of The Library of Congress's original cards for a number of classic authors. The text of each card interestingly matches the mood often evoked when imagining the author's era. Take a look at a few: William Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream"...

Here's How Not To Give Advice

Not only can it be offensive, but if your advice... goes south, it can cause quite the relationship rift. Because we can always use an etiquette reminder, MSN Glo put together a foolproof guide to what not to say when it comes to doling out your opinion.For starters, there are certain topics we should all just steer clear of completely. Anything having to do with parenting is always a no-no; even if you've got a brood of your own, it truly is different for every family. The same goes for telling your pregnant friends what to eat, what to drink, or how to cope. In fact, we should all avoid the topic of food in general -- especially if you're...

Van Gogh's Sunflowers Are"I am hard at it, painting with the enthusiasm of a Marseillais eating bouillabaisse, which won't surprise you when you know that what I'm at is the painting of some sunflowers," Van Gogh wrote in a... letter to his brother Theo. "So the whole thing will be a symphony in blue and yellow. I am working at it every morning from sunrise on, for the flowers fade so quickly." Two versions of Van Gogh's iconic "Sunflowers" will be shown side by side at the National Gallery next year, reuniting the iconic oil paintings for the first time in 65 years. The revelatory installation will allow viewers to compare and contrast the masterpieces in the flesh and more fully understand Van Gogh's compulsion with the warm-hued flora.

Karl Lagerfeld Faces LegalKarl Lagerfeld is known for many things: his sunglasses, his leather driving gloves, his ponytail, and-- perhaps most famously--his controversial bons mots. On the latter point, one area of speciality... is the designer's tendency towards making offhand comments about 'fat people'. But a group called Je Suis Belle, Ronde, Sexy Et Je M'Assume--or in English "I'm beautiful, round, sexy and OK with it"--has filed a legal complaint against him in France, the Huffington Post reports. The group's president Betty Aubriere said that they are accusing the Chanel designer of "defamatory and discriminatory comments". "We're fed up. Many young girls are insecure and hearing such comments is terrible for them," she added. "Today it's him who insults us and tomorrow who will it be?" Karl famously described...

Refinery29 - 30 Oct 2013 12:00
NYC's 21 Most EligibleAs the temps drop in NYC, it seems that couples get, well, couple-ier. And, while there's something sweet about all that hot-cocoa sipping, fall-foliage viewing, scary-movie hand-holding relationship... stuff, we want to take a second to applaud the independent ladies that keep our city so inspiring. This is their moment. We found 21 of the Big Apple's most eligible babes -- each one is successful, funny, vibrant, beautiful, and best of all (listen up you potential suiters!)...single. So, we did as we do, and booked them for quick photo shoots and Q+As, to discuss all things love, life, and dating in Gotham City. Ever the matchmakers, we also scored the inside tips on what makes them tick, what not to do on a first date, and, of course, where to go if you want to "coincidentally" run into...

Owl Cafes Are Actually A Thing

Refinery29 - 30 Oct 2013 11:50
Owl Cafes Are Actually A ThingForget free WIFI and earnestly brewed artisan coffee--a truly great local coffee shop requires a few live owls to perk up the place. At least that seems to be the thinking in Japan. Cat cafes--where... patrons pay to play with kitties while sipping their coffee--have been popular in the country for a few years, and it's estimated that there are around 40 establishments in Tokyo alone. But a new trend has seen the birth of what is locally known as a "fukurou cafe"in Toyko and Osaka, an owl-themed cafe that lets you pet the owls in residence. We're not sure how the owls feel about this arrangement, but we understand that the rules protecting their wellbeing are strict. We also suspect that the wide-eyed glare of a bird of prey might put us off our cappuccino and muffin. At least no one has...

Lisa Kudrow Knows The Power Of A Nose Job

Refinery29 - 30 Oct 2013 11:00
Lisa Kudrow Knows The Power OfShe might be your favorite Friend but, Lisa Kudrow was not always so popular. The Web Therapy actress opened up in an interview with The Saturday Evening Post about the rough time she went through as... a teenager. In sixth grade, Kudrow's closest friends dumped her when she changed schools. Harsh. "They said, 'For your own good, you need to see what would happen if we weren't here'" Kudrow explained. "It was really brutal. Very hard." Things didn't get much better for her in high school. At 16, in an effort to fit in, she got a "life-altering" nose job during summer, so that she could return to school in the fall a completely new person. "I went from, in my mind, hideous, to not hideous," Kudrow says. Fast forward 34 years, and she still considers the decision "a good, good, good change." It...

'The Biggest Loser':Tanya Winfield had an emotional week on "The Biggest Loser," and it showed when she stood on the scale. Realizing he wasn't getting her full potential in workouts, Dolvett Quince sat down for a... one-on-one. Tanya revealed that she was still harboring a lot of anger and resentment toward her mother and her entire family from her childhood. Her mother was a drug addict, and had abused Tanya physically. And while the family knew this was going on, she said that no one intervened. She was still so angry about this, even after her mother's passing. So Dolvett came up with a task to help her get all of those feelings out. He asked her to write a letter to her mother and to her family detailing all of her feelings, and by the end of the letter, to try and be at a place where she could forgive...

'Awkward' Aftermath: Can JennaIt was the aftermath of the kiss seen 'round the surprise party on "Awkward." While Jenna's friends were trying to recreate just what happened after they popped up from behind the couch to see Jenna... kissing Collin, Jenna was vowing to never step foot outside her house again. In the end, though, she knew what she had to do. And as much as she'd hurt Matty with her betrayal, her next move might just hurt him even more. Especially after he told her that he could forgive her for cheating. It was Jenna who couldn't move past it. And so she broke up with him. "Jenna doesn't simply break up with Matty: she argues to him that they're breaking up with each other, framing it as a mutual decision," wrote The AV Club's Myles McNutt. "Her argument is that this is all happening for a reason, but to make...

Series co-creator Michael Schur told Entertainment Weekly that their farewell episode -- which films in a couple of weeks -- will be "a great Pawnee send-off."

'Sons Of Anarchy': Tara HasIt looks like Tara is getting away with the biggest part of her plan to erase Gemma from her kids' lives on "Sons of Anarchy" ... at least so far. Unser convinced her not to press charges, so Gemma... was let out. Gemma figured out the truth behind Tara's actions -- that she'd faked her pregnancy so she could blame her "miscarriage" on Gemma -- but it did little to help her. Jax is standing by his wife. When Gemma tried to talk to him, he wouldn't listen. "Let this eat into your brain, mother: You're never gonna see my wife, and you will never see those kids again," he told her. "Grandma is dead." TVLine's Megan Masters called that moment "explosive." Gemma is no angel, but it's still hard to watch her take so much heat for something she didn't do.

Do you think you're on her list?" Andy Cohen asked. No. I'm sure there's a lot of people on her sh*t list, but I'm probably not," McCarthy said. "I'm probably number four." The last time she appeared on "WWHL," McCarthy went into more detail about that deal. Apparently, she and Winfrey had an agreement to do a syndicated show, but at the last minute, Winfrey wanted to put the show on OWN. McCarthy wasn't interested, and so they parted ways.

See, Guthrie had embarrased her fiance, Matt Feldman, at a birthday party she threw for him a few weeks ago by... making custom cocktail napkins with his childhood picture on them. So her boyfriend teamed up with Jay Leno to both get her back and up the ante considerably. Everyone at the party got to see Feldman's boyhood face. Everyone in Leno's considerable audience got to see Guthrie's. Leno surprised Guthrie with the photo, which he displayed for the audience as well. "I love this photo. Look at this," he said. "If it wasn't for the fact that this was in color, I'm guessing that dress is from 1923?" It was an uncomfortable end to a long day that began with even more discomfort. That morning on...

In other words, it was a night of... brutal cuts and soaring voices. But it was perhaps the show's homemade country boy band Restless Road that offered up the biggest surprise. They put their country twang on a very unexpected rendition of Katy Perry's "Roar." It was a huge surprise, but also a huge hit. Buddy TV's John Kubicek called them "Simon [Cowell]'s greatest accomplishment" this season. Over at HitFix, Daniel Fienberg agreed with Simon's take on the group -- they could win the whole show. "Restless Road is going to be commercial as heck. There's no point in saying anything else about them," he wrote. "I don't love the...
