Stop Trying to Make the Lob Happen

…. it’s not going to happen. In fact, rumors of the Lob have been greatly exaggerated.

Emma Watson's Lob: ho-hum. Emma's Pixie Cut: WOW!

Emma Watson’s Lob: ho-hum. Emma’s Pixie Cut: WOW!

“Goodbye Pixie Cut, Hello Lob” reads the headline on the Daily Beast.  ”Like seasons, hair cuts quickly come and go,” muses writer Erin Cunningham, and she’s right about that. “The pixie cut has officially abdicated its throne, and the ‘lob’ (abbreviation for the ‘long bob’) has taken the reins as the hottest cut in town.”

No, sorry. I beg to differ. A Pixie Cut is timeless, which is why it has endured over the decades. The Pixie Cut is iconic. It embodies moxie. Pixies stand proud. Who wants to be a Lob? Lob Forever? Hmm, doesn’t have quite the same ring.

Anne Hathaway's Lob: Meh. Anne's Pixie Cut: Magnificent!

“Sure, the bob may be one of the most common haircuts for women (it’s been in existence since the early 1900s, after all),” writes Cunningham.

“But now, a new crop of fashion and beauty icons have taken a seemingly historical style and its equally old counterpart (the long bob was originally popularized in the 1930s) and made them seem brand spanking new.”

Natalie Portman. C'mon, do I really need to say it?

Natalie Portman. C’mon, do I really need to say it?

I dunno if it seems brand-spanking new. It just seems like a bob. There are short bobs (which are sisters to the Pixie Cut) and long bobs. Now the latter is being called a Lob. Kind of reminds me of how NYC neighborhoods get stupid names to either make them seem trendy or to extend a trend that’s already peaked. Billyburg, anyone?

Hey, would you like me on Facebook and follow me on Twitter?

An Awesome Anne Hathaway Pixie Retrospective

anne-hathaway-2-435Anne Hathaway looks so great here, on her way to a morning show in NYC. The outfit is a little strange. But from the neck up: love!

I am so glad she’s sticking with the short crop. And the glasses! Bespectacled girls all over, rejoice!

Huff Post has a great slideshow of Anne’s short hairstyles.

And you know what? I love the shortest one best. I think it’s the most striking, the most flattering. But needless to say, she looks great in all the pics. (I mean, come on. She’s Anne Hathaway!)

Anne Hathaway: Back to Brunette!

Anne Hathaway apparently agrees with the majority of our readers, and has gone back to brunette!

Hollywood Life helpfully supplies us with not only an article on the subject, but “Before & After” photos.

I love “Before & After” photos!

Ironically, although I prefer Anne as a brunette, this is probably my favorite pic of her as a blonde. It’s a little Edie Sedgwick.

Also, great Pixcessories: shades!

A New Look at Anne Hathaway’s New Look

...Here's the story...

Anne Hathaway was at a “dinner”…

(celebrities love their “luncheons” and “dinners,” don’t they?)

… and showed off her new blonde hair.

I don’t like it. It doesn’t look edgy here, it looks positively Mrs. Brady.

What do you think?

Anne Hathaway’s New Look


So as we previously reported, Anne Hathaway has gone blonde.

My first thought upon seeing it was that she looks so much prettier as a brunette.

But looking at this pic, Joe pointed out something very astute, as he so often does.

He said that the blonde hair gives Anne something she usually doesn’t have: an edge.

Very true. I thought that her super-short Pixie Cut gave her an edge, but she was quick — irritatingly so — to grow it out.

BTW, is it just me or does Anne look a tad too thin?

One Event, Three Pixies

Waiting up for Norman.

So there was a gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC, called Punk: Chaos to Couture. This irritates me to no end, the idea of a bunch of rich people co-opting the word punk and using it to their own high-end means, but whatever. I will just say they have no idea what punk really means.

Anyhoo, Miley Cyrus, Nicole Richie, and Anne Hathaway were all in attendance. I don’t think any of them hit it out of the park. In short: Miley looked contrived, Anne looks better as a brunette, and Nicole Richie looked like old-school Mrs. Bates. Check ‘em out and decide for yourself!

"Pretty cool?" I dunno.


You're room is ready... Cabin #1.

Anne, blonde.

Oscar Pixies 2013

Secretary of State.

I’m feeling underwhelmed by the Oscar Pixies!

Anne Hathaway’s Pixie Cut is clearly being grown out despite her earlier claims to the contrary. I don’t think those heavy bangs look good on her. And the length of the rest of the ‘do is starting to resemble old-school Hilary Clinton.

Don’t care about any “flashing” of “side boob” and don’t understand why the media gets hysterical when an actress shows the side of her breast in public. (When she climbs out of a limo without underwear, the hysteria is a bit more understandable.)

Loving the cut... the color, not so much.

Charlize Theron’s Pixie Cut looks awesome, having grown out from buzz-cut status, but I’m disappointed that she dyed it blonde. This brings her back to her Astronaut’s Wife days. No one wants to go there. I think she looks amazing as a brunette. The blonde is what my Uncle Seymour would have called “gilding the lily.” She doesn’t need to try so hard!

All in all: ho-hum.

Oh, Dear (Part 2)

Who gave the greenlight to this getup?

Anne Hathaway seems to be channeling Adam Lambert at the “National Board of Review Gala” (WTF?) in New York City.

And, in case you need me to tell you this, that is not a good thing.

Anne, what were you thinking?!

I’ll say it again: oh, dear.

Anne Hathaway is Sad About Having her Picture Taken Without Underwear

Anne at the "Les Mis" premiere.

Yesterday, I came upon the news that Anne Hathaway attended the premiere of Les Mis at the Ziegfeld in NYC (my all-time favorite movie theater) without underwear, and was photographed getting out of her car in a position that showcased her off a la Britney Spears.

Usually I don’t  post stuff like that, but it felt weird to ignore it. I’ve been all “Anne Hathaway this” and “Anne Hathaway that.” Also, I will never, ever understand why celebrities go out without underwear, to public events where they are going to be photographed.

Anyhoo… on The Today Show, journalist extraordinaire Matt Lauer “quipped” to Anne, “We’ve seen a lot of you lately,” which seems rather douchey. But maybe it was douchey (can a girl be douchey?) of me to post the photo?


This is what Anne said: ”It was obviously an unfortunate incident. It kind of made me sad on two accounts. One was that I was very sad that we live in an age when someone takes a picture of another person in a vulnerable moment and rather than delete it–and do the decent thing–sells it. And I’m sorry that we live in a culture that commodifies sexuality of unwilling participants, which brings us back to ‘Les Mis,’ that’s what my character is, she is someone who is forced to sell sex to benefit her child because she has nothing and there’s no social safety net.”

Now I feel sad. I feel sad that I couldn’t decide whether or not to post the photo of Anne, and decided to take a break from being so virtuous, and now feel guilty about it.

Do the US folks feel guilty, too?

Let’s go back to talking about how great Anne looks. And Anne — do us a favor and wear underthings when you go to events where gazillions of flashlights will go off while you clamber out of a car!
