Bass Lines, Marilyn's Money Shot and Reality Show Clip Time


Through Thick and Thin: Personally, we've always preferred Christina Ricci in her more well-rounded, Buffalo66 days. Not that we've got a problem with the carb-free model here. [BlackBook]

Some Like it Very, Very Hot: Just like Paris Hilton, Marilyn Monroe filmed a sex tape before she became a tragic victim of her own fame. Unlike Hilton, Monroe's oral exam may never make it to your desktop. [NYPost]

Labor Party: A charming, lil' British-TV presenter is set to star in a reality show based in a faux London sweatshop. This is a good thing, right? [Female First UK]

"Tired of Being Sexy" Hot, hipster mess CSS loses its bassist to fashion—which is apparently the modern equivalent of boozing yourself to death in a pool. [CMJ]

Chat Stew: The dapper king of our TiVo, Joel McHale, sits down to discuss his J. Lindberg jackets, Air Jordans and, wouldn't you know it, Tyra. [Sign on San Diego]

Slim Jims: Men's Vogue collects the best slim-cut suits of the season so we don't have to. [Men's Vogue]

You were still playing Contra when Donna Karen was a growing concern. Retired and now renewed, Karen is still a considerable name and her DKNY (see above) remains a good source for office-proof, stylish essentials.
