The phrase “queen bee” brings to mind Regina George, Heather Chandler, Cher Horowitz, even Miranda Priestly—ladies in charge. The term has also been used to describe a syndrome of top professional women keeping other women out of senior positions—something that's (surprise!) a myth, according to new research from Columbia Business School.

From Mean Girls to Masters of Sex, actress Lizzy Caplan’s career is filled with roles women love to watch. Here, she opens up about jealousy, Michael Sheen’s amazing birthday gift, and pissing off Kim Jong-Un. “I’m dressed like a 12-year-old boy but feeling like a 90-year-old woman,” Lizzy Caplan tells me as she settles down across from me at a fancypants West Hollywood restaurant. Clad in a pair of green overalls and a crop top, the 32-year-old actress looks more like an 18-year-old girl than a tween boy, but I appreciate her self-deprecating style. Read More

When I think of “Making it in America” I imagine a life full of making it rain, throwing drinks in other people’s faces, bling bling, and of course, being able to lounge around in a Juicy Couture tracksuit 24/7. While The Real Housewives franchise may have seriously influenced my opinions on the American dream, I still believe that success should be measured in expensive loungewear. What else says you’ve made it like a $300 matching, brightly-colored, velour tracksuit with rhinestones that exclaim that your butt is, well, Juicy. Read More
I exit the elevator at the penthouse level. As I enter the apartment, the host of the party bounds down the stairs, shouting my friend's name. Him: aviators, open white linen shirt. My friend: modest blue shorts and a brown sweater, gorgeous, thin, well-connected. Me: high-waisted flower-print skirt I've had for 12 years, see-through mesh top, and an awkward grin. And the penthouse: Xanadu, if Xanadu were in the West Village. I feel I should have dressed more like I was going to a yacht. I then realize this was me dressing like I was going to a yacht.

Are you ready to feel old? Today is the 10th birthday of the movie Mean Girls. Are you ready to feel less old? The film is as relevant today as it ever was. It’s a rare day that passes without someone somewhere making reference to the eternal language of comic Tina Fey, and just this winter, we revealed some of the hilarious and eye-opening behind-the-scene facts shared by director Mark Waters.

  Regina George is a pop culture icon; unrelentingly representative of a terrifying girl-on-girl meanness, she is the brilliant brainchild of writer Tina Fey, actress Rachel McAdams, and directer Mark Waters. Edging out Heathers’ Heather Chandler as the most eerily alluring young female villain, George terrified and mesmerized audiences and proved that words can be deadlier even than the strongest drain cleaner.

I don't need to tell you that Mean Girls is the most hysterical, quotable movie of all time. You know it, I know it, it is fact. And the best part is, there's never a bad time to use a Mean Girls line. You are always regarded as witty and charming for pulling "she doesn't even go here" out of your ass at a party. It's a universal truth. But Christopher Rosa, an intern for NextMovie, just put us all to shame. This majestic creature takes Mean Girls love to the next level by reciting the ENTIRE MOVIE line-for-line in just under half an hour. While donning a pink polo shirt. Read More
So virtual Burn Books are a thing now, apparently.  Kids these days, amirite? This Tuesday, two Swedish girls (aged 15 and 16 respectively) were found guilty of “aggravated defamation” for slut-shaming 38 of their peers via Instagram. As early as December, the two were on a lookout for the “worst sluts in Gothenburg,” receiving 1000 suggestions. From there, they published photos (primarily of females) along with cruel comments on their alleged sexual activities. This started riots at at least two high schools. Hell no, I did not leave Stockholm for this. Read More
