Alexi* steers her silver Honda into the traffic of L.A.’s Glendale Boulevard. (“Welcome to my office!” she'd joked when I climbed in.) Alexi is a slim 25-year-old with ombré brunette hair and a flawless, long white manicure. In a typical workday, she spends eight hours driving around greater L.A. delivering medical-grade marijuana.Hot girls, delivering your weed. »
Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard, vying hard for quirkiest darn couple of all time, confess to having a painting of Brad Pitt over their bed. And they produced photographic evidence to prove it on Ellen, lest you doubt their devotion to whimsy.Read More »
This Sunday is Easter, the annual day of ageless egg hunts, excessive chocolate, and creepy bunny suits. But before you break out the Paas kit, enjoy this look back at Cadbury-endorsed celebrations of yore, from bird-and-egg-adorned bonnets to Jackie Kennedy and Princess Diana celebrating with their kids — and even Hillary Clinton posing with an oversize bunny. Click through our slideshow for all these Easter highlights and more.
Woven raffia winds its way around the foot on Brian Atwood's leather heel, which cuts a striking look with its sharp silhouette. We'd call it an understated sandal — perfect for both day and night — but it'd be unfair to compare it to any other summer heel.

In a new commercial for Prada's spring fragrance, Prada Candy Florale, Léa Seydoux looks positively blissed out (some may say she looks like she started celebrating Weed Week a little early). But these are just the effects of starring in a Steven Meisel–directed commercial featuring an imaginary flower. In the ad, she and her blunt-cut bangs air-paddle and float above a perfectly positioned Prada-pink couch. Because pink is the warmest color?
Last night, Dior and I — a documentary that offers a peek into the atelier of Christian Dior — premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival. Shot in 2012 by Frédéric Tcheng (Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel), it follows the newly installed Raf Simons in the eight weeks before his debut couture collection for the house.The filmmakers had company. »
The New York Post reports that Rickey Spicer — a musician who sued Kanye West last year because samples of his '70's-era song allegedly appeared on the rapper's single "Bound 2" — is now suing Vogue. The song soundtracks a behind-the-scenes video of April Vogue's Kimye cover shoot.Read More »
Mary-Kate Olsen may have a five-hairpin-only mandate, but Olivia Palermo has her beat (plus one). She has exactly six hair highlights. As she told Vogue, "I took a year and a half off from processing it and just started back up again recently. Abby Haliti [at Julian Farel salon] always colors it. I’ve been going to her for years. She does just six pieces total."
Still puzzling. Why not seven? Why not a quarter head of highlights? Why not half? Is this normcore beauty?
For the final season of Californication, Heather Graham has been cast as what the script calls “a ridiculous fucking MILF" she tells Esquire.com. Sexist? Yeah, but as Graham puts it, this is a show built around a “guy’s fantasy.” Well, what about women?
Don’t worry: Roller Girl is going to change the Hollywood landscape that with the screenplay she’s working on, which finally explores sex from “a female point of view” and reveals how “women get off”:
A couple days ago, Miley Cyrus reported that a nasty sinus infection had developed into a severe allergic reaction to some antibiotics. It sounds rough. According to her team's official statement, doctors believe she could be in the hospital and off the Bangerz tour for three weeks."mizzzzzeraaabbblleeee." »
This week’s F/M/K consensus: Fuck Kate Mara, for her innovative foreplay and astounding ability to keep a straight face: She confessed to Playboy this week that she filmed House of Cards sex scenes while wearing pasties with Kevin Spacey’s face on them. Marry the wombat-obsessed star of the royal Oceania tour, Prince George, before someone else does: 11-month old Ruby Cate Blitz wore a T-shirt and tutu with the words “Marry Me George” at the Royal Family’s Wellington visit, to Prince William’s visible enthusiasm. (He apparently called the toddler “absolutely beautiful.”) And kill Mara Wilson, now all grown-up, for being a pretty insufferable spoilsport about the otherwise exciting Mrs. Doubtfire 2 reports.
“Freeze your eggs, free your career!” blares the cover of Bloomberg Businessweek. It’s a story as tired as 40-year-old ovaries: Wealthy women who have achieved great things professionally are disappointed about how their personal lives are shaping up — now, though, they’re defying their biological clocks by paying ludicrous amounts of money to freeze their eggs. One of these women says she “thinks it will allow her to date without radiating the desperation of someone who has to have a baby right this very second." Another woman — whose male colleagues presumably aren’t losing sleep over how to maintain a career, meet a perfect partner, and start a family — says her decision “leveled the playing field a bit.”Buried in the article is a chart that betrays the you-go-girl positivity. »
Victoria Beckham just announced on Twitter that she's designed a line of matching mother-daughter dresses — a concept that normally makes us cringe. However, model Sasha Pivovarova and her daughter Mia look pretty adorable in the preview picture Beckham released, and the capsule benefits AIDS charity Born Free. The collection goes on sale April 23 on Shopbop — on your marks, matchy-matchy types.
When a Shia LaBeouf finds the thing that he loves, a Shia LaBeouf cherishes it. He lives in it, he swims in it, he breathes in it, he stretches his legs in it.Read More »
Yesterday, former (and maybe future) first daughter Chelsea Clinton announced that she and her husband, Marc Mezvinsky, are expecting, and so began a nationwide gestation period for a royal-baby equivalent to call our own. “I just hope that I will be as good a mom to my child, and hopefully children, as my mom was to me,” Chelsea said at the No Ceilings women’s forum at the Lower East Side Girls Club in New York after she announced the news. In honor of the occasion — and, perhaps, to guess what her future baby might look like? — click through the slideshow for a look back at Clinton’s own White House childhood, from tours of South Asia and Tanzanian safaris to practicing for The Nutcracker.
Arguably more of a pain to get to than Brooklyn: Chanel's upcoming cruise show. For the May 13 extravaganza, the brand is commandeering an island in Dubai known simply as "The Island" — because just any old island wouldn't be worthy. WWD cryptically notes that the event will be "partly indoors, partly outdoors" and will allow guests to see a "forest of skyscrapers at sunset." No word yet if there will be a ferry or not.
The best stoner-girl series ever, ever — Broad City — has completed its first season. But, but, but! To fill the urban-metropolis-size hole in your heart, might we direct your attention to a web series from the Ilana Glazer half of the Broad City duo?
It's called Chronic Gamer Girl, and it's about playing video games. Mostly, though, it's just lots of chats and snacks. It's great even if you don't know a single thing about digital games of any sort (this comes straight from the horse's mouth).
