View Photo Gallery

Bangs have been a thing since time immemorial (didn’t Ludvig von Beethoven have them?). Their popularity is no mystery! Bangs serve so many purposes. They can mask a super-big forehead, a weird hairline, or unplucked brows. They’re versatile, and can work with every hair texture. And in the ’80s, they even managed to defy gravity. Remember the teased-and-sprayed Croissant Bang? Classic.

A YouTube video of three grandmothers smoking weed for the first time went up yesterday, and it’s been swirling around the Internet ever since. The six-minute video shows Paula, Dorothea, and Deirdre smoking from both a bong and a vaporizer, and, of course, they get high, play Jenga, drink tea, and eat Doritos. Read more…

Outrageous Moments from ’80s and ’90s Daytime Talk Shows

View Photo Gallery

In the ’80s, soap operas ruled the airways. But a shift occurred late in the decade — when everyone started noticing that talk shows hosted by Phil Donahue and Geraldo Rivera were becoming more and more deliciously controversial (anything to drag eyeballs away from the marital affairs and amnesia plotlines of soaps). With sensational story topics like midget-tossing, paternity suits, neo-Nazi nonsense, brawling transvestites, and grisly murders, several talk shows followed their lead. Enter “Trash TV,” which featured the likes of Jenny Jones, Ricki Lake, Maury Povich, and Jerry Springer.

Fashion Flashback: The Tackiest Platforms of All-Time

View Photo Gallery

Most trends blaze hot for a brief moment in time, only to quickly disappear into the ether (languishing forever in yearbooks and mortifying music videos). The shelf life for most fashion fads is usually a decade, at most. Not so with platform shoes, a style that reigned from Carmen Miranda and Rita Hayworth‘s 1940s heyday until the Spice Girls and Deee-lite-drenched ’90s. Read more…

Overrated Actors Who Keep Getting Work and No One Understands Why

View Photo Gallery

Hollywood is full of mysteries. Does Tom Cruise really wear platforms during kissing scenes? Why do British people do the best Southern accents? Is Halle Berry aging backwards? All valid questions, but one of the biggest is: Why do some movie stars keep getting work, despite evidence that they should probably take a seat (or rethink their career choices)?

Fashion Flashback: The Most Absurd Overalls of the ’90s

View Photo Gallery

Overalls are huge right now (in a #throwbackthursday kind of way). They’re all over Forever 21, H&M, and Asos.com — not to mention runways like 3.1 Phillip Lim and Balmain. The resurgence of this slouchy staple is a bit of a fashion mystery. Seriously, when did the relatively grungey, traditional workman’s uniform become chic? Read more…

When Male Makeup Transformations Go Horribly Wrong

View Photo Gallery

Movie makeup can be an awesome thing. Remember the jaw-droppingly realistic transformation Charlize Theron went through to become oily-haired, acne-plagued serial killer Ariel Wuornos in Monster? What about Brad Pitt as Benjamin Button, or Heath Ledger‘s Joker? When done right, the combination of artful makeup and prosthetics can truly perform miracles of visual trickery. It’s movie magic at it’s finest!

Remember When Everyone Was Taking Fashion Tips from Blossom?

Much was awkward about ’80s and ’90s style, least of all the trend of big flower hats. Why did we voluntarily leave the house with floral bouquets balanced on our heads?

When Celebrities Got Pregnant in the ’70s, ’80s, and ’90s They Were Allowed To Look Pregnant

View Photo Gallery

Remember when celebrities were allowed to look pregnant? Exactly, you probably don’t. Thanks to the glammed-up moms-to-be of the last decade, like Jenna Dewan Tatum, Amber Rose, Kelly Rowland, and Kim and Kourtney of the Kalifornia Kardashians, pregnancy is no longer an excuse to let yourself go.
