The Best Celebrity Instagrams from the 2014 CFDA Awards

Contrary to popular belief, Rihanna wasn’t the only celebrity who turned it out for last night’s CFDA awards. As is befitting for an event celebrating all that’s fashionable, luminaries from the overlapping universes of fashion, music, and Hollywood descended on Lincoln Center… and documented the night on social media. While not quite as star-studded as last month’s Met Gala, the CFDA left us plebes with plenty to ooh and aah over beyond a certain (non?) outfit. Check out Solange, Greta Gerwig, Chanel Iman, and more after the jump. … Read More

The Best Celebrity Halloween Costumes of 2013

Who better to pull out all the stops on Halloween than people with tons of money to spend on costumes and people to help with hair and makeup? Though there were some notable exceptions, 2013 had a fairly well-outfitted crop of celebrity revelers. We’ve assembled a highlight reel of famous people dressed up as lots of other famous people — topped, of course, by the Honey Boo Boo clan. Click through for a look at the various reality stars, musicians, and crustaceans the rich and famous choose to be when they’re not being themselves. If nothing else, we now know a certain ex-boy band member is a big fan of Wayne’s World. … Read More

Tears and Tinsel: 9 Thoroughly Modern Holiday Songs

The holidays are that special time of year when old lovers re-emerge, flaring up like cold sores during a first date; it’s when we, shattered by the reality of having accomplished very little throughout the year, drown our anxieties in buckets of wine and platters of chocolate and prosciutto; it’s when we dwell on harsh, undeniable truths and ask ourselves poignant questions like, “Am I going to be alone forever?” and “Will everyone think ill of me if I cram one more custard tart into my eat-hole?” And amid this Titanic-esque mad dash to the end of the year, festive pop music that could mitigate all this stress too often only exacerbates it. So, below, we take a look at a few modern holiday confections that actually put us in the mood to celebrate. In an era of global warming and fiscal uncertainty, these are the kind of ditties that more accurately evoke the 21st-century holiday season than traditional tunes like “Jingle Bells,” “Deck the Halls,” or even an old Bing Crosby standard. … Read More

Celebrities Dressed Up Like Cartoon Characters

Earlier today we came across this photo of Mindy Kaling as Marge Simpson from the October issue of Glamour Magazine.

Click through to peep the results; we think you’ll be especially surprised by who we caught dressed up like Dora the Explorer. … Read More

A Collection of Fantastic Celebrity Barbies

We’ll be the first to admit that it has been a long, long time since we were in the target demographic for Barbie, yet when we heard that a collection of dolls inspired by the Kardashians is rumored to be in the works, we couldn’t help but react with a resounding “huh?!” What’s the fun in that? The whole point of playing with Barbie dolls is the escapism and fantasy; meanwhile, whether you love ‘em or hate ‘em, you have to admit that the Kardashian sisters have built their ever-growing empire around their willingness to overshare every last banal detail of their daily lives with the public– not exactly the most thrilling source material. Plus, while their fashion choices are typically on-trend, they’re also pretty darn boring. So, we decided to do a little bit of digging, and discovered that there are plenty of celebrity-inspired Barbies on the market that we wouldn’t mind playing with — even as adults. Let us know which doll is your favorite in the comments. … Read More

Halloween Wars: Heidi Klum vs. Martha Stewart

Every Halloween, the Internet floods with new photos of celebrities in costume. (We’re especially enjoying Robyn as Robin and Amy Poehler and John Krasinski as Andie and Duckie from Pretty in Pink.) But, over the years, a few famous people have emerged as Halloween all-stars. They always dress up, and their costumes are often awesomely outrageous, impressively elaborate, or both. Last year, we pitted daytime TV hosts against each other to determine who (or, more likely, whose wardrobe department) was creating the most entertaining masquerade. Since it looked like Martha Stewart was the clear victor then, in 2011 we’ve thrown her into competition with pop culture’s reigning Queen of Hallowen: Heidi Klum. Follow along from 2005 to the present as we pick a winner. … Read More

Did Heidi Klum Get Auf’d from ‘Project Runway’?

So, this is odd. RumorFix (which, despite its name, actually confirmed the story with a representative for the show) reports that Heidi Klum won’t host the next season of Project Runway. Although she appears on Season 9, which is currently airing, Project Runway All-Stars has been shooting in New York without her. “There will be a… Read More

7 Absurd Celebrity Brand Representatives

We live in a world where we are bombarded by advertisements every day — and almost everywhere we look. We also live in a world where celebrities are revered, and their choices about products deemed important. So of course there are a million celebrities selling products — either just by appearing as a model in a print ad, or in a commercial with a slogan, or even by making public appearances. We are sometimes perplexed by the choices made — both by the brands themselves, as far as the celebs they choose to represent them, and also by the celebrities, who often seem willing to do almost anything to increase their bank accounts. Well, we won’t judge — for all we know, Kim Kardashian really does have strong feelings about Charmin over other toilet papers. Wait, what are we talking about? We will judge. Click through for a few of our favorite most absurd celebrity brand representatives. … Read More

Transforming Iconic Images in the Age of Sampling [NSFW]

Sampling is the mode of the moment. In a sketchbook note from the early-’60s, Jasper Johns wrote, “Take an object, do something to it. Do something else to it.” It wasn’t a totally new idea in art, but when considered in the development of postmodernism and 21st century art that was made after art, that simple statement had a profound effect. Studying the visual terrain for a number of years, collector and curator Beth Rudin DeWoody not only saw examples of this theory in use, she realized the opportunity to motivate artists working with photography to take iconic images as their point of departure for new work. … Read More
