Can Dieting Make You Dumber?

Plus Alec Baldwin's yoga poses, RiRi sans fards and more of the top stories of the day

• Does dieting make you dumber? That's what researchers at the Harvard think might be happening. They say that dieting steals all your extra brain bandwidth and makes it hard to think -- which can actually sabotage your weight loss goals in the process. (You get frustrated easier, make poorer food choices, and are more likely to give in to food impulses.) [New York Times]

• Topless feminist protest group FEMEN let it all hang out on the runway at Nina Ricci. The Ukrainian radical feminist group stormed Ricci's catwalk baring their chests shouting "fashion = fascism," with "model don't go to brothel" and "fashion dictaterror" scrawled across their chests. They were, predictably, removed by security. This isn't the first time FEMEN's protested fashion: earlier this year, they stormed the set of the finale of Heidi Klum's Germany's Next Top Model, too. [Racked]

• Breaking! Rihanna posts a makeup-free selfie, proves that she's hot with or without a bunch of product on her face. [People]

• Stressed out about the lines on your forehead -- do what Jane Seymour (and we) did: get bangs. "It's been a few months now, but it changed my life -- cut bangs, cut my hair a little bit shorter," she said of the new look. "I had side bangs forever. [Now] I have full bangs." Hair really can change your life. [Us Weekly]

• You've always wanted to see Alec Baldwin do yoga, right? Now you can! He cameos in wife Hilaria's Fit Mommy-to-Be Prenatal Yoga DVD, which comes out on October 1. There's a series of partner yoga stretches that Alec participates in. Says Hilaria, "Sometimes I step into his world, and that was an example of him stepping into my world. He very much did what I wanted him to do. [Laughs.] I was the boss that day. We're both very bossy people, and that day he let me be the boss." [Vanity Fair]
