While media sources from US Weekly, and TMZ, to People, Fox News, and the New York Daily News covered Renée Zelweger’s recent quirky-to-country club transformation, we were shocked by the country’s outrage.  Why has one woman’s appearance led to such controversy?  Perhaps it is because over the years we have indentifed ourselves in one of Zellwegger’s iconic characters?  After all, who of us hasn’t had a cringe-worthy Bridget Jones moment?  How often in life have we taken a Jerry Maguire-like risk?  These are simply roles that the Academy Award-winner has played to perfection. for more than twenty years.  According to The New York Times, “It’s jarring when suddenly we don’t recognize the person in whom we once saw ourselves.”  That we can understand.  Read more of this story »

MicroBang

GAGA IS THE LATEST TO CHANNEL BETTIE PAGE

Is anything new these days?  It seems that Lady Gaga (left) stepped out this week, sporting the “micro-bang” (aka “suicide roll”), a hairstyle originally made popular by the 1950′s pinup star, Bettie Page (lower right).  She follows Beyoncé (right), who debuted her new fringe last week in London.  The look is anything but new.  In May, Madonna and Katy Perry graced the cover of V Magazine (lower left) with a similar look.  But celebrity stylist, Ray Salazar, cautions those attempting to emulate, “It’s not a very realistic every-day hairstyle that most women can wear.”  He suggests first playing with a clip-in hair piece or rolling your own bangs to create a similar effect.
