The Grammys red carpet is always a welcome departure from the play-it-safe motto of almost every other show during awards season. How many women would actually prefer wearing a sleek black floor-length gown? Yawn. With all the focus on the performances, the Grammys invite so much more risk-taking. There were so many phenomenal outfits last night, but one trend we were particularly psyched about? The almost unheard of number of ladies dressed in pants. The Haim ... Read More
Punxsutawney Phil, the asshole he is, told us this week that we're going to be enduring six more weeks of winter. Great, you think, as you empty the slush that somehow made its way inside your boots.

Not to discredit Graham’s major ... Read More

He doesn’t have to be, she says. I shrug and ask her if she’d go out with him if he were interested. “ Of course,” she replies. “He’s funny. And smart. And that color looks good on him." The times, they are a’changin’—for ... Read More
