Oprah has been on the air longer than I have been alive, but today is the very last episode of The Oprah Winfrey Show. I’m not a die-hard Oprah fan, but she’s always been around, everyday. It’s strange to think that tomorrow, she won’t be. She is larger than life and the most influential woman in America. What is everyone going to do at 4 o’clock now? It’s difficult not to admire her.

Director, writer, and graphic designer Mike Mills (whose first film was 2005’s Thumbsucker) has a new movie out June 3rd called Beginners—a beautiful film about love, death, and new beginnings. Based on Mike’s personal experiences, the story revolves around 38-year-old Oliver (played by Ewan McGregor) whose father Hal (Christopher Plummer) comes out as a homosexual at the age of 75 after his wife of 45 years passes away.

NYC Popfest was this past weekend and it was filled with fun, friends, pop songs, and dance parties. Amongst a sea of cardigans, glasses and plaid, a few pop kids pulled out all the stops from fancy dresses to YSL tees. The key was to be comfortable enough to dance like no tomorrow, but still put some effort in. Everyone looked adorable as ever. I'll soon be making a "Pop Bands to Look Out For" post, but for now enjoy the stylish attendees and band members of this year's NYC Popfest. Above are members of the band Tiny Fireflies and below, the singer of Dream Diary.

In Miranda Huba’s brand new play, Dirty Little Machine, Jane meets a repulsive and depraved “weasel” of a guy and hopes that either his foul-mouthed chauvinism will give her the boost she needs to embrace feminism and reject her degrading sexual fantasies, or give her every opportunity to fulfill them. As a child she found a dirty paperback novel, which has come to define what she finds erotic – and she fears that her sexually depraved fantasies are at odds with her feminist impulses.

      Check out this amazing performance by Beyonce at the 2011 Billboard awards! There's an intro video of every famous person imaginable gushing about Beyonce Knowle's talent and drive. Michelle Obama even talks about how Beyonce is a powerful role model for women all around the world. Beyonce has Bono, Lady Gaga, and even her adorable little nephew raving about her.

Everybody loves Jamie, Gordon, Emeril and Mario, but food isn’t a boys club by any means. While the cult of the celebrity chef has its fair share of males, the contributions of women to American food are undeniably important in shaping our food culture and community. Last week Gourmet listed their top 50 women in food, from Julia Child leading the list to Julie Powell rounding it off. The list is informed from an American perspective but includes important foreign imports like Clotilde Dusoulier, Madhur Jaffrey
 and Harumi Kurihara.

Navigating gendered vocabulary can be tricky. I use the term “guys” to refer to just about anyone—men, women, children, even the elderly—but every now and then my poor vocabulary has led to confusion or even discomfort.  But terms for the “fairer sex” are pretty limited. “Females” sounds starchy and medical, and even “women” often feels too official. “Girls” indicates youth and can be belittling when used in reference to adults.

In the past few weeks, the TV networks have revealed the new shows that they'll be adding to their fall lineups. One thing that's been quite noticeable is that there are way more shows coming out this fall that are about women than, well, maybe since forever. And of those shows, two of them, on two different networks, are associated with comic Whitney Cummings. One, "Whitney", is a comedy that stars, and is about, Whitney Cummings. The other, which Cummings is producing, is called "2 Broke Girls.

From vendors to attendees, the BUST Craftacular crowd was indeed a stylish bunch. My head was turning every which way from fancy jewelry and vintage clothes to vegan treats and cupcakes galore, but once I looked away from the goodies, I noticed style everywhere! It was a gorgeous, sunny day and that brought tons of gals with bright, colorful dresses and cute, interesting accessories.
