Well, ladies, it appears that our favorite “Mad Men” star has committed the ultimate sin: acknowledging her own good looks.
Arianne Cohen, a Marie Claire writer joined Overeaters Anonymous because when she went out with people, she was distracted by the bread basket. She also started eating sprinkles as a snack with a tablespoon.
When she went there she heard stories of people bottoming out, like the one from a woman who went out to “a public dinner” and broke into the kitchen and just tossed all the desserts in her purse and ran, just ran, gobbling a glorious purse-load of tiramisu as she went, floating along on a cloud of sugar and the distant but frenzied cheers of her comrades. Oh, I’m sorry. I was confused. She went out to a public dinner and had “three glasses of wine and, oh yes, the entire bread basket.”
Now, I’m not sure whether this was the best bread basket in the world, but most restaurant bread baskets have around 4 pieces of bread in them. 5, maybe?
Look. Lady. That is not a binge. That is “a good night.” More
Dolce & Gabbana and Gucci may soon be neck and neck for the cover look of the season: Dolce’s got three covers with their white eyelet frock (seen most recently on Emmanuelle Alt’s debut Vogue Paris starring Gisele) while Gucci’s eye-catching jeweltone head-to-toe runway look just landed Italian Marie Claire as seen on Regina Feoktistova. Get a better look after the jump. More
I’m just trying to stop you from resigning yourself to being a Stay-At-Home-Girlfriend, frolicking around the apartment in hot pants in February like some spindly Venus-fly-trap hothouse flower. That simile went on longer than I expected it to. Anyhow. Here is how to cope when you’re between jobs More

So, I’ve stayed awake all night thinking about Marie Claire hating on fat people, and I still don’t know why that article exists. But I know it exists for a reason! So we came up with these groups who we’re going to hate the way Marie Claire hates anyone who is overweight. Because people are different, everybody should kill each other. Hate! Hate! Hate! More
So, hey. How are things going? Is it nice where you are? Do they still have the sushi chef? How about the Orangina? Good news, our office rat problem is almost under control, and we haven’t found rodents in any of our purses in weeks!
Anyhow, Marie Claire editors, I figure you have all those things because you’re really good about knowing what articles to run, and don’t just sit around talking to Ashley about whether or not advertisers would be cool with you making a gallery about how to shoplift effectively (We want to call it “Fuck Department Stores: A Guide To Getting What You DESERVE. By the way, no, the advertisers aren’t cool with it). So, that article of Maura Kelly’s you ran about fat people entitled “Should Fatties Get A Room” because Maura Kelly hated seeing fat people… exist, basically… that was there for a really good reason, right?
Like, see, it’s this paragraph that has me confused. More

Marie Claire just reported that a recent University of Melbourne study found that workers who who browsed the Web in moderation were 9 percent more productive than coworkers who did not. According to the article, this is attributed to “the concentration restoration that occurs during web-surfing micro-breaks, plus the autonomy of knowing your employer trusts you to manage yourself.” Additionally, Marie Claire reports that the more enjoyable the website visited, the more efficient you will be doing actual work.

Six health bloggers were targeted as setting possible dangerous eating and exercising routines for their readers and themselves in the latest issue of Marie Claire. The article, “The Hunger Diaries,” has sparked a fire among the bloggers’ followings and they are now attacking the magazine on their Facebook page saying that the author, health writer Katie Drummond, was biased and the article lacked factual evidence of the bloggers actually having or inadvertently causing eating disorders. Rather than supporting Marie Claire or joining in on the fight, we’re just going to let the story unfold for you via our favorite of the Facebook comments thus far. More
