Choosing to see Fiona Apple live is definitely a gamble. On a bad night she might rant about her recent drug arrest in Texas or she might decide to hide under her piano or she might just decide to cut things short completely. But on a good night--and Tuesday night at Terminal 5 in New York City was a very good night-- Apple proved why she’s worth shelling out a few bucks for.   From the moment she sang the first words of “Fast As You Can” Apple was in full control.

“Blondes make the best victims,” Alfred Hitchcock once said. “They’re like virgin snow that shows up the bloody footprints.” So begins The Girl, HBO’s deeply (and rightly) gnarly exploration of the fraught relationship between Hitchcock and arguably the most legendary of his blonde ingénues, Tippi Hedren (Sienna Miller).

  For the latest in college rape news, we turn to Amherst College in Massachusetts. On Wednesday, Angie Epifano, a former Amherst student, published a heartbreaking 5,000-word account of her on-campus rape and its aftermath. After Epifano was raped on May 25, 2011, the Amherst administration completely failed her. Epifano was not allowed to change dorms and was pressured to not press charges. When she went to the counseling center to talk about how scared she was, she was sent to a psychiatric ward and pressured not to come back to Amherst.

Have you picked out a Halloween costume yet? Maybe you’ve already chosen an awesome feminist costume (maybe a SCARY VAGINA?), or maybe you’re DIY-ing it. Maybe you’re getting sexy and adding some ears, à la Mean Girls. As long as you’re not dressing up as a “sexy body bag," if you’re feeling good and having fun, you’re probably all set. Except for one thing… DON’T WEAR A RACIST COSTUME.

There’s something about fall that makes orange food taste even better. Pumpkin-flavored goodies are offered at every coffee shop. Candy corn is calling from the shelves of every drug store. And butternut squash soups like this one from the new release The Karma Chow Ultimate Cookbook: 125+ Plant-Based Vegan Recipes for a Fit, Happy, Healthy You by Melissa Costello are simmering on many a stovetop.

  A story about a man paying someone to take his virginity sounds like your typical high school sex romp, but The Sessions is the furthest thing from that.     On the surface, the film is about Mark O’Brien (John Hawkes), a man who hires a sex surrogate, Cheryl Cohen Greene (Helen Hunt), to help him lose his virginity. He does so not because he’s just unlucky with women, but because he contracted polio when he was six and has to rely on an iron lung to survive. The film, which was based on a true story, isn’t a biopic.

By now, everyone and their grandmother has seen or at least heard of the “binders full of women” jokes stemming from a comment made during the second debate by Presidential candidate Mitt Romney. What few people have talked about, however, is the young woman who asked the question that prompted his reply. Katherine Fenton, a 24-year-old schoolteacher who doesn’t belong to a particular party, got up and asked the candidates a question that seemed innocuous enough.

We recently reported that Amy Heckerling’s brand new film, Vamps, will hit theaters on November 2, which means that Clueless—the film that made her a star— has been pushed back into the spotlight. (AS IF we needed a reason to celebrate the 1995 smash hit.) In fact, last week’s edition of Entertainment Weekly brings the cast together to answer some of our most burning questions about what it was like be a part of the movie.      The stars talk about their favorite moments, what the movie means to them, and what they’re up to now.

Stella as Grace Kelly Have you ever wished that you were as vivacious as Billie Holiday, as elegant as Grace Kelly, or as intelligent as Hermione Granger? 8-year-old Stella Ehrhart has – and she does something about it. According to the Omaha World-Herald, every day, Stella dresses up as a different historical figure, character, or person she knows. Most of her ideas come from a book called 100 Most Important Women Of The 20th Century. Along with Billie Holiday, Grace Kelly, and Hermione Granger, she’s dressed as Joan Baez, Jane Goodall, and Georgia O’Keefe.
