This weekend, geeks, geek babies and industry types alike descended upon Manhattan for New York Comic-Con–San Diego’s smaller, pluckier East Coast sister. No matter its size or attendance, though, New York Comic-Con is still very much a place to cosplay and be seen. Here’s a bunch of delightful DIY looks from the weekend’s festivities. More
This week, The Wolverine enters the theaters and lovers of tiny hairy men and superfluous definite articles rejoice. Here at The Gloss, two huge fans of tiny hairy men and superfluous definite articles are debating a trio of the Marvelverse’s most famous mutants–gruff and effectively immortal anti-hero (the) Wolverine, kinetic energy master/hot Cajun thief Gambit and metal-controlling apex predator Magneto. Of course, we couldn’t talk about X-Men without some nods to teleporting husband material Nightcrawler, lame duck Cyclops and… uh… Spiderman? More
Please tell me that this same show is also what is coming to movie theaters next week. I don’t want to be disappointed when I arrive on opening night.
Watch the video now, and see more daily picks from The Gloss! More
A few days ago, Deputy Editor Ashley Cardiff stated “I have crushing guilt over how attractive I find Michael Fassbender in Fish Tank” in response to a post Editor in Chief Jennifer Wright wrote about how Ryan Gosling is not that sexy. Most of us thought she was just being wildly off point, as is her way. One commenter felt differently. More
There’s an article on YourTango right now about things preferable to sex. They include “chocolate” and “holding hands.” Don’t they know that sex is like holding hands on the inside? Oh, God, that’s gross. Sorry.
Still! We really like having sex. We like a lot more than eating chocolate. We, in fact, chose our boyfriends largely because having sex with them seemed approximately 750 times more fun than sitting by ourselves watching the Jersey Shore. But we’re willing to imagine that there are some things that are legitimately preferable to sex. Umm… 10 of them. This is what we came up with. More
This week, editors Jennifer Wright and Ashley Cardiff were discussing the time-honored argument of Batman versus Superman, and how that is an extremely stupid argument because Batman is the obvious right answer. They determined that the only logical rival is the X-Men and then assigned sides. They argued for a bit and then wrote Magneto x Xavier slash fanfic. It gets pretty sexy. More
Here’s the red carpet from last night’s premiere of X-Men: First Class in New York City, featuring a pregnant January Jones, some sunglasses and one very Kevin Bacon. More
Donatella Versace’s muse of the moment is Mad Men actress January Jones. You know this because January Jones shows up in Versace to every event celebrating film and television and shows up naked in advertisements celebrating Versace. Apparently the collaborative juices were so potent and syrupy, they lead to an eyewear collection called Versace January J, presumably because they cannot fit Versace January Jones, Star of Mad Men and the Upcoming X-Men Prequel, X-Men: First Class on the sides of the sunglasses. They hit stores in April. Here is the collection, accompanied by quotes from Mad Men about social problems. More

“I don’t think pedestrian sex is very interesting. There’s a playfulness we have; I like the theater of sex. I like to look good. I like her to dress up. I like to dress her up.” — Sting, on how he keeps his sex life with wife Trudie Styler interesting.
“The costumes are insane…It’s a lot of very body-conscious stuff. If you look at the comic book, she’s barely dressed. She’s got quite the bod.” January Jones, on playing villain Emma Frost in the upcoming X-Men movie. More
What a strange little tent of a lace dress. Evoking the kind of dress little girls might have put on a babydoll fifty years ago, a couple sizes too big and accented by a black bra or tank top (I … More
Did I miss a beat and neglect to notice how adorably handsome Ryan Reynolds is these days? This is how you do charmingly disheveled hair. And ever so slight 5 o’clock stubble. And vest. And pocket watch. That’s right – … More
