Another Halloween has come and gone, which means that now there is only one thing to do: Monday-morning celeb costume stalking. From Kim K. going as herself, to Viola Davis' daughter wearing the cutest costume in the world this year hit a new high of creative with a side dish of hilarious (here's looking at you, Katy Perry). Check out the celebs who did Halloween extra right:
1. Ellen DeGeneres as "Karla Kardashian," the long-lost member of the fam.
2. Josh Duhamel and Fergie as Karl Lagerfeld and Choupette (his cat)

Celebrities play a huge role as influencers on the general public, especially when it comes to health and beauty. Unfortunately, the standards many of these stars set are highly unrealistic -- take Kim Kardashian, for example.
The hours of makeup and editing make her look stunning and quite literally flawless, but it's just not attainable by us common folk. This is problematic because some young women may idolize the image Kim has created and feel inferior or self-conscious about their own looks. Read More

In the Disney Channel factory, they manufacture young actor-singer-hyrbids faster and with more precision than one of Will.I.Am’s crazy new 3-D printers -- creating perfectly adorable, multitalented camera-ready creatures that can not only cry on cue, but can also sing, dance and hype the crowd in a rhinestone-encrusted ensemble accompanied with a matching wireless headset microphone.

The self-taught photographer Danny Evans is fascinated by the ways in which celebrities are photoshopped and airbrushed onto billboards and magazine covers. In an attempt to subvert the image of the affluent, picture perfect star, he photoshops images of celebrities, reimagining them the average American citizen. In his words, his “make-unders” reveal “what’s left after Hollywood has been scrubbed off,” positioning pop culture icons within an almost stereotypical suburban landscapes, with outdated hairdos and all.

Kanye West’s new “Bound 2” video has been criticized for featuring a nude Kim Kardashian, with whom he suggestively canoodles. To be blunt, it seems a lot like she’s just there for some eye-candy.

According to US Weekly, Kim Kardashian has confessed that, “I dress for my man way more than for myself!” Sigh. Apparently, the only thing Kanye West loves more than dressing up in kilts and making TSwift cry is outfitting Kim in “cool, drapey things.” While Kim isn’t necessarily a groundbreaking fashion plate, it’s never fun to see a powerful woman being pushed around by her significant other. Besides, West, whose 2011 Paris Fashion Week Line received almost unanimous criticism, isn’t exactly posed to give anyone sartorial tips. Read More

Sometimes I read something so thoroughly puzzling that I need to take a break, have a sandwich, and return to it later. Such a piece was birthed into the media jungle of the Interwebz today, ladies, and I offer it to you now. Have a sandwich at the ready for the pondering period. I think you'll need it.
Marie Claire, in an article called "The Vagina Dialogues" by Faye Penn, heralded this moment in history as the time when "vaginas have never had it so good." But. Wait. Read More
While the world fussed over Kim Kardashian's three wedding gowns and Kate Moss' glamorous Galliano dress (anyone else surprised he still has any friends after this?), I'm sitting here swooning over Sofia Coppola's gorgeous, refreshingly not white, lavender dress that she wore to wed Phoenix's Thomas Mars last Saturday, August 27th. The dress was simple and sweet, just like the director herself, with layers of chiffon all along the bottom. Read More
