Lady Gaga Unveils Her Latest Creation: The Moss Dress

Never let it be said that Lady Gaga isn't always evolving, challenging herself as an artist and as a human. Case in point: She's moved on, so far on, from that dastardly, stinky meat dress she wore to the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards. No, these days Ms. Gaga is on a new tip: The Moss Dress.   read more


Kate Moss Has Mandatory Smoke Breaks

• We love just about everything about Kate Moss, but we're just not sure how to feel about the latest Moss factoid. Apparently her modeling contract stipulates that she's got to have a cigarette break every 15 minutes ... or else. Says a source who knows about these things: "Kate is actually a dream to work with compared to a lot of high-profile models. But her one major stipulation is that she has extremely regular [cigarette] breaks." Well, we suppose if that's all she's asking, that's not too much. [The Gloss]   read more


Ralph Lauren's Accessories -- Modeled by Adorable Doggies

For Ralph Lauren's latest accessories campaign, they didn't do the usual ol' models and handbags thing. Instead, they kicked the cute up a notch and brought in a gaggle of adorable rescue dogs, handpicked from the ASPCA to help model the collection.   read more


Is This The Most Amazing Victoria's Secret Fantasy Bra Ever?

• Victoria's Secret is constantly trying to outdo itself when it comes to its annual fashion show. And this year's "Fantasy Bra" is no different. The newest bra is reportedly worth $10 million, and will be worn by Angel Candice Swanepoel. Swanepoel steps into big wings -- she follows Alessandra Ambrosio, Gisele Bundchen, and Heidi Klum the bearer of the fantasy bra. "They had to mold my body to be able to make [the bra], and I was really excited," Swanepoel told People. "I tried to imagine after they'd done the mold, how would they make it, how it would look. My imagination didn't do it justice. My favorite part is this beautiful 52-carat pear-shaped ruby. Every part of it is exquisite." And you guys, the bra comes with two bodyguards.

Science Says: Breast Implants Improve Women's Sex Lives

Sometimes science comes up with some pretty ridiculous things, right? Like these Brazilian researchers who found that women with breast implants experienced increased sexual pleasure. Scientists followed a group of 45 women -- yes, that's right, 45 -- who planned to get implants. Thirty-six reported improved sexual satisfaction.   read more


Natalie Portman Makes Moves On Marie Claire's Cover

• Natalie Portman, how do we love thee, let us count the ways? And in the meantime, we'll just ponder the, um, interesting dress you wore on the cover of the November issue of Marie Claire It's a Dior Haute Couture number, and we get it, it's fancy, but it also just doesn't make sense to us. In other news, yep, still looking gorgeous. Oh, and also, she's moving to Paris. [Marie Claire]   read more


Jessica Biel Gets Bare With New Bag Line

You know, in the pantheon of famous Jessicas, we always thought of Jessica Biel as the one with the good bangs but little real ambition. Sure, she was lucky enough to snag Justin Timberlake, but just try to recall any one of her movie roles (and no, her TV time on Seventh Heaven doesn't count.)   read more


For Your Next Manicure, Head To The Conference Room

Your next manicure may not happen at the nail salon on the corner. It could be as close as the conference room near the corner office. That's because the Manicube could be headed to your workspace.   read more


Sparrow Face Is The New Duck Face

• Duck face, it is but a scourge upon us all. But thankfully, there's a new horrid facial expression that's soon to takeover. It's called sparrow face, and it's somewhat, slightly less annoying. It involves opening your eyes really, really wide, and parting your lips just-so before snapping a pic. The idea is to make yourself look a bit like a "chirping sparrow." Or something. We think it is miles less ridiculous looking than duck face, so go forth and sparrow. [The Gloss]   read more


Check Out Melissa McCarthy's Glam Elle Cover

• Holy smokes! We can only imagine that Melissa McCarthy would say something hilarious and probably unprintable about her November Elle cover. McCarthy is one of six women -- along with Reese Witherspoon, Shailene Woodley, Penelope Cruz, Marion Cotillard, and Naomie Harris -- featured in the special Women in Hollywood issue. McCarthy looks incredible in a gorgeous Marina Rinaldi coat, though the Fug girls wonder if the coat is kind of a cop out on the part of Elle. "Next to these other covers -- Shailene Woodley is in underwear; Cotillard, a sports bra -- I kind of can't believe they put the plus-size actress on their cover BURIED INSIDE A GIANT COAT." What do you think? [Go Fug Yourself]   read more
