So far, online reactions to last night’s premiere of the new ABC Family teen fat camp series Huge are mixed—and for good reason. Created by Winnie Holzman of My So-Called Life and her daughter Savannah Dooley, the show stars Hairspray’s adorable Nikki Blonsky (right) and the gorgeous Hayley Hasselhoff (David’s daughter, left), and is being touted as the antidote to all those skinny teen ensemble shows that relegate fat girls to the margins. ...

So most people of have an idea of what Wonder Woman wears, right? That little red, white, blue, and gold bustier/hot pants combo, with those high red boots, wrists cuffs and let’s not forget that fancy headband. You’d have to say that Wonder Woman is definitely recognizable. I mean, don’t you just wonder where she holds stuff or if she ever has had a wardrobe malfunction when she’s kicking butt? I do. Well, that’s all about to change. ... Read More
A few weeks ago I stumbled across the blog, But You’re Like Really Pretty and instantly became a huge fan.   Each Wednesday, illustrator and site owner Ryan Casey, posts a hilariously mean webcomic featuring someone or something in pop culture that’s been a particular source of annoyance that week (example below).  Her illustrations are so good and so clever that the blog was recently nominated for a Webby and won the 2010 Bloggie ...

Thanks to a French (of course) drug company, there soon may be more than one option when it comes to morning after pills. Like, several mornings after. While Plan B works for three days after unprotected intercourse, the new drug–ella–is effective for five. Those two extra days can really count if you live in a rural area or face other obstacles to getting Plan B within that three-day window. Ella (also called ulipristal acetate), won unanimous backing ... Read More

Over the past five years, doctor’s have made many breakthroughs in the battle to preserve and prolong women’s fertility.   And while I think we’re all familiar with invitro at this point, you may not know much about ovarian transplantation.  The first successful ovarian tissue transplant was performed back in 2004 between two sisters. Only a handful have been performed around the world since then, mainly due to the high cost and ... Read More
 I didn’t discover the great filmmaker Agnès Varda; she discovered me, staring at the posters in the window of her editing suite on the Rue Daguerre in Paris. A tiny, quizzical old lady, she approached, smiling and asked, “Have you discovered something interesting?”  Indeed I had! “La Varda” is one of the brilliant filmmakers to have emerged from the French “nouvelle vague.” In over 40 films, she has ...

One of our favorite BUST-y ladies, New York graffiti artist-turned-fashion designer Claw Money is teaming up with Vans for a sweet mini-collection of some sneaks, a tank and some socks. The main theme, as you can see to the left, is a pattern of her notorious claw symbol and some lovely leopard print fading from aqua into coral. Prices range from $8 for the socks to $70 for the hi-top sneakers with the allover print. According to Claw herself, the instructions for ... Read More
