It appears my favorite sassiest and most "illustrated" resident of the Plaza Hotel is finally getting her own documentary, and at the helm is none other than Girls star Lena Dunham.
The Vogue cover girl recently revealed that she will be working alongside Girls co-writer and executive producer Jenni Konner on a documentary about Eloise illustrator Hilary Knight. An american illustrator, Knight became a household name in the literary world when he began ... Read More

"Ugly has never looked so beautiful" is a phrase that comes to mind when looking at Jessica Stoller's ceramic sculptures. Feminine yet abrasive, this series looks at the female experience through a grotesque lens. I always believed that nothing was more horrific and weird than being a girl. Stoller's works of art purposefully focus on the underlying paradox of femininity, which in one hand is all about pink and ruffles and "prettiness" yet ... Read More

The rumors are true-mors. Finally, after nine years, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences finally got their act together and decided to bring back Ellen DeGeneres to host the 80th Academy Awards which will broadest live on Sunday, March 2.Since I have apparently been living under a rock for the few months, I was surprised (as I hope some of you were, or else this post is redundant) by the new promo pics for the 2014 Oscars showing DeGeneres ...

It looks like everyone's favorite tight rope walker, Janelle Monae, will be dancing and singing through the beloved sets of Sesame Street. We love this former BUST cover girl, and we're kinda losing our minds with excitement!
In this great behind the scenes clip, we see Monae singing "The Power of Yet," a song that teaches kids and adults alike the importance of perseverance, with cast favorites like Big Bird, Ernie and Cookie Monster. There is even a ... Read More

When I babysat my neighbors' kids, I thought it was pretty weird that their youngest daughter spent most of her playtime with the family iPad. Even more disturbing were the games she chose to play, which usually consisted of cartoon girls getting ready for their princess weddings, going to the salon to get their hair and nails done, or to the spa to pop pimples (cue gag). As if these weren't bad enough, a new gang of games has cropped up that take the body ... Read More

Though I usually stay away from anything made in the 70's (i.e shag carpeting and polyester clothing) I can't help but envy those that grew up with Free To Be… You and Me, the 1972 album and accompanying book created by Marlo Thomas. The album was marketed towards kids at a time when single working women were just beginning to show up on national television. It used catchy tunes to teach a revolutionary feminist message of gender equality, when social ... Read More

Or a Rose? Or a Sophia?
It's crazy to think it's been almost 30 years since a group of retirees stole our hearts with their crass jokes and catchy theme song. But one question has been plaguing fans for years.
WHICH GOLDEN GIRL AM I???
It's true. Way before "Sex and the City" graced our celluloid screens, we had four other sassy ladies that made us wonder if our personalities leaned more towards that of our beloved kind and ditzy character or her ... Read More

After a long break, American Horror Story: Coven finally returns with a bang with none other than the musical legend Stevie Nicks as a guest star in tonight's episode. Allusions to the original White Witch have permeated the series, most notably in the character of Misty Day (Lily Rabe), who spends her days living in the Louisiana swamps listening to Fleetwood Mac and donning a wardrobe that seems to be stolen right out of Nicks's closet. Whether Misty is bringing ... Read More

It seems all this talk of movies with lead female characters making more money has finally caught on to the head media honchos in Hollywood, and I think it's about time.
IndieWire created a list of some of the most anticipated movies of 2014 and I was happily surprised to find so many female driven plots as well as strong female influence behind the scenes.
You can expect everything from a fierce Angelina Jolie in "Maleficent," the long awaited Veronica Mars movie ... Read More
