Despite the fact that she’s widely loved as an actress–and lauded as a crusader for more positive body image–there’s been a hefty internet-wide backlash to Kate Winslet‘s recently-dropped Vogue cover. Of course, the problem has nothing to do with Winslet herself… and everything to do with Vogue‘s over-eager retouchers.
But the painting of Winslet on the November cover isn’t exactly new territory for Vogue–they recently hacked off Claire Danes‘ limbs, for one. Moreover, there are quite a few covers from the last ten years that rival Winslet’s for showcasing humans who don’t exactly resemble humans. Let’s take a look. More
Celebrate Karl Lagerfeld’s 80th birthday with 15 of his craziest old man quotes. More
Karl Lagerfeld was actually pretty nice this time, for him. More
Adele and Lana Del Rey are tattoo twins. More
I don’t think anyone would debate the fact that Adele has accomplished more in her 24 years than most people do in their entire lives. She’s rich and famous, she’s won nine Grammys, and she got Anna Wintour to put someone bigger than a size 2 on the cover of Vogue. But when HarperCollins offered her over a million dollars to write a memoir about her life thus far, she said no. More
Hey everybody, Adele is still not of the same body type as almost everybody else in Hollywood! STILL. How dare she not lose weight and deny assholes the chance to then make fun of her for “looking anorexic” later on? How dare she not give into the pressures women face tenfold over men in the entertainment industry? LOLCOW! More
The 2013 Oscars are taking place tonight–which you probably know if you’re the sort of person who reads ladyblogs (even this one). We’ll be liveblogging our kneejerk reactions to all the fancy designer dresses in this very post, so don’t forget to refresh throughout the night.
Without further ado, we bring you every single look from this year’s Oscars red carpet… More
Remember the picture of Adele ostensibly yelling at Chris Brown? We all assumed that it was about Rihanna, and it was kind of out of the blue, but Adele is some sort of Valkyrie defending justice, so, that. Nope! More

As we previously whined, coming up with a Best Dressed list from last night’s Grammys ceremony was like squeezing water from a goddamn stone.
Which brings us to the embarrassment of riches that is constructing a Worst Dressed list. We couldn’t even keep it to the standard ten! The 2013 Grammy Awards had to be one of the ugliest red carpets in recent memory… and ugly in so, so many ways.
This week we learned that Karl Lagerfeld hates Michelle Obama‘s new bangs, despite otherwise being a huge fan of “Madame Obama,” indicating (once again) that the only thing Lagerfeld loves more than insulting random people is couching faint praise in backhanded compliments. In the wake of his recent mouth-running scandals–with Adele and Pippa Middleton–we decided to take stock of the Chanel designer’s long and storied history of hating stuff. So, here’s a bunch of Karl Lagerfeld quotes pertaining to all the things he dislikes, including but not limited to ugly babies, babies in general, Greek people and the smell of food. More

As we mentioned, noted bombshell Megan Fox has the cover and corresponding interview of this month’s Esquire. In previews, the piece had already made the rounds for douchey quotes: Megan compares being famous to being bullied, yet still doesn’t see why people would rather spend their sympathy on those without mansions and Bentleys. Now, the full profile has made it online and intrepid bloggers have finally managed to read it. Turns out, the whole thing is about as fun as sticking pins in your eyes. More
