By Shinan Govani Columnist Fri., Feb. 22, 2019 Happy 20th Anniversary of Gwyneth Paltrow’s Pink Oscar Dress! In the revolving door of Oscar, when it can be difficult to call up memories of who won last year, let alone decades ago — quick: who won Best Supporting Actress in 2018?! — the images remain.

Both loved and loathed, it is no wonder an entire Wikipedia page exists devoted to the spaghetti-strapped Ralph Lauren that Paltrow donned in 1999 when she nabbed Best Actress for Shakespeare in Love. “Finally, a dress more famous than mine,” Monica Lewinsky was said to have quipped at the Vanity Fair Oscar party that year. And for every observer who thought then that it amounted to the second-coming of Grace Kelly, there were others, like Camille Paglia, who wrote that it made her look like a “mushy Pink Hostess cupcake.” (Ouch!) The dress, if nothing … [Read more...] about 20 years ago, Oscars were perfect platform for Gwyneth Paltrow’s pink power

The company will also reimburse any unhappy customers who bought the eggs between January 12, 2017 and August 31, 2017. A district attorney in California argued that the company used misleading, inaccurate information to convince customers that the eggs might help their hormone levels or increase bladder control.

Our face is misaligned, he informs us in the nicest possible way, which stockpiles stress and creates dysfunction. Donahoe is a master motion mechanic at the Human Garage, which is not a metaphor for the body — although we will hear plenty of those here — but because the practice got started in an actual garage. “We recognize all truths in all modalities,” he says. “We’re the only ones talking about gravitational forces and atmospheric pressure and what that does for the human being.” Donahoe swabs the palate of our mouth, then squishes our right small intestine like a panini. Human Garage recommends a 16-session, … [Read more...] about Go ahead, hate Goop — Gwyneth Paltrow is having the last laugh
