If you’re anything like us, you had an aversion to Lisa Frank even at the age when you had to buy a trapper keeper. Unfortunately, most stores offered two options: Lisa Frank and stuff just as cynically awful for boys. More
Something tells me this show’s contestants did not read their Marilyn Monroe biographies through to the end. More
What with all the nostalgia surrounding the rerelease of Titanic, Gloss EIC Jennifer Wright decided to revisit another cornerstone of her teen years: Daria. Unfortunately, the experience of watching now wasn’t quite how she remembered. Here, she and Deputy editor Ashley Cardiff discuss teen angst, Holden Caulfield and how the things you liked as a teenager were dumb. More
So, I was scrolling through Getty’s photo database looking to see what famous attendees wore to Monday’s Marc Jacobs show–Anna Dello Russo, predictably crazy–and came across this bespectacled fellow. Here were my thoughts: “Oh, he looks respectable. He must be European.” Then I assumed he was an editor at some fancy foreign glossy. Dansk? No. This man is Brandon Boyd from Incubus. More
This afternoon, the office became a stage for a series of confessions about the terrible jeans we all wore in eighth grade. The mall jeans, the outlet jeans, the dated cuts, the high waists and exceedingly low waists, the heavily branded “premium” denim, etc. Take the poll and tell us your teenaged poison: 7 For All Mankind, Wet Seal, Guess… More

Volatile man James Cameron is rereleasing his massive 1997 blockbuster Titanic… in 3D. If this move smacks a little too much of Star Wars: Special Edition foulness to you then: good! We’re glad to have you. Here, editors Jennifer Wright and Ashley Cardiff discuss Cameron’s reasoning, its presence in pop culture and whether or not the film is still relevant in 2012. Also, how that old lady was a bitch. More
We’ve had a soft spot for Garbage ever since we first saw the “I’m Only Happy When It Rains” video on MTV and, like, totally identified with it. But even if you weren’t a big Garbage fan, there was still something thrilling about frontwoman Shirley Manson, with her grungey kinderwhore style and stunning frankness with the press. So, for all the girls out there who tacked Shirley’s Spin covers to their bedroom walls in the ’90s, here’s our gallery of appreciation. More
Look, TheGloss isn’t a nostalgia blog, but we don’t always keep it topical. Sometimes editors Jennifer Wright and Ashley Cardiff need to excise some Lion King-related demons. Today, the subject of their discussion is “The Freshmen,” the massive, pop culture-consuming 1997 power ballad by The Verve Pipe. The lyrical content has been a long running debate between Jennifer and Ashley and today they’re parsing it out.

Entertainment Weekly has finally done something to (arguably) justify its existence: they’ve reunited the cast of The Princess Bride to the delight of internet people everywhere. The last time we saw Cary Elwes, Robin Wright, and Mandy Patinkin together it was 1987 and the world was fucking beautiful and perfect and innocent. Now, I guess, it’s not that way anymore but at least we have this Annie Leibovitz-looking photo. More
Editor-in-chief Jennifer Wright has never seen The Lion King, which astonished Deputy editor Ashley Cardiff. Jennifer asked Ashley to explain the beloved film’s appeal and Ashley kind of sucked at it. Apparently The Lion King is about Nazis, racism, Hamlet, eating grubs, Elton John and lion sex. More
