Put an Oscar-nominated actress on it! Super-talented style icon, actress, and former BUST cover girl Chloë Sevigny is set to guest star on Portlandia's upcoming season.

  A very happy birthday to our favorite master of French cooking, Julia Child! Today marks what would have been the butter-obsessed chef's 100th birthday, which is certainly reason to break out the cake, or, perhaps more appropriately, the chocolate soufflés. Before finding her true calling as the iconic chef and TV personality, Child, a graduate of Smith, worked as everything from a copywriter and a top secret researcher for the OSS. Read More
People, I've been having a rotten day. Maybe you have been, too. But I dare you -- I DARE YOU -- to watch this video and remain in a bad mood. It is a scientifically proven fact that if you watch a video where a dog swims with wild dolphins (yes! a dog! dolphins! water! swimming! interspecies cuteness!) you will not be able to maintain a bad mood. This fact was scientifically proven by me, just now. Watch it and get ready to feel awesome. They should bottle this stuff. Read More
Our cover girls are having a busy year. Tavi Gevinson may be starting her acting career, but the face of April/May, Don’t Trust The B*tch in Apartment 23 star, Krysten Ritter, might be in for a Dawson’s Creek reunion. Now that’s exciting.

James Van Der Beek plays a heavy-handed version of himself on the show. Read More
They say what goes on the internet stays on the internet, and it's true: the stars of today were the dorks of yesterday, making silly videos of themselves and posting them to youtube only to have them haunt them for the rest of their days. As for those who were around before youtube, well, their videos have been posted there by other helpful celebrity sleuths. Here are our top 10 favorites, featuring some of our favorite lady celebs.   1.  Kat Dennings' video blog from 2006!     2. Madonna auditions for Fame, the TV Show, in 1982!   3. Read More

Film Review: About Face

BY Intern Ariana in TV

Newsflash: America loves youth, money, and beauty. Every single one of us is affected, whether it’s through mean comments from our peers or the millions of commercials we’re exposed to on a daily basis. Although journalists and academics both cover the fashion industry’s influence on societal norms, we rarely hear from the models themselves. It’s a taboo in the fashion world to really get to the heart of the matter, since eating disorders and drug use almost always come up. That’s where About Face: Supermodels Then and Now comes in.

I’m going to try to leave the Hilary Clinton comparisons out of this and stick to the already publicized spoilers. Leading lady Elaine Barrish Hammond (Sigourney Weaver) is, quite frankly, badass in the USA network's newest show, Political Animals. She’s smart and wears a burgundy jumpsuit like nobody's business. Elaine could have worn a demure skirt-suit during her introduction, but that’s not the kind of woman she is. She tells her husband, Former President Bud Hammond (Ciaran Hinds), she wants a divorce confidently. Read More
In the eternal battle over whether or not women can be funny, I think any naysayers should be silenced after today's Emmy nominations. Yes, women sure can be hi-freakin’-larious. With all the outstanding comediennes filling out the lead actress in a comedy series category, how can that even be a question anymore? Veterans like Tina Fey (30 Rock), Amy Poehler (Park and Recreation), Edie Falco (Nurse Jackie) and Melissa McCarthy (Mike and Molly) were all nominated last year and deserved their re-nominations this time around.

We love us some Louis CK around here, so we were super disappointed when news came out that he had tweeted his support of Daniel Tosh during the time of the rape joke controversy that surrounded him. Louis must have been pretty disappointed about it himself, so he went on The Daily Show last nite, basically to explain his position. He said that he was on vacation in Vermont, detached from the internet, and decided to tweet that he enjoyed Daniel Tosh's humor because he happened to be watching his show while in a hotel.

When did the question of “Can women have it all?” become such a big debate? Although we’ve probably been trying to answer that question since that first multi-cellular organism managed its way out of the primordial soup, lately, it’s been a huge topic of discussion. From Anne-Marie Slaughter’s highly talked-about The Atlantic piece “Why Women Still Can’t Have It All” to Taylor Cotters very criticized Huffington Post blog “A Struggle of Not Struggling,” culture is very seriously trying to figure this one out.
