Sophia Bush, activist and The Incredibles 2 star, was brought into more drama than she asked for when Andy Cohen got her to talk about her brief, five-month marriage to her One Tree Hill co-star Chad Michael Murray in 2005-2006 on his radio show Wednesday.

“I have come to view bachelorette parties as liminal spaces where traditional codes of conduct and behaviors do not exist,” explains Maria, a twenty-something New Yorker who has attended two—I can’t believe we’re calling it this—“last days of freedom” parties for the women in her life. “I fear the invite,” adds Ariel, a 30-year-old four-time

Of all the beauty aisles in a store, the face wash one may just be the most confusing: How do you know which ingredients will work for your skin? What percentage should they be? Should it be foam? Gel? Both? But that’s where a good dermatologist comes in. We tapped a couple doctors from Wexler

I’m not saying it was ‘loud,’” I say to the kid. “I’m saying it was nuclear-grade. I’m saying it was, like, squealing karaoke Armageddon. I’m saying it was insane.” Beside me in the passenger seat, she’s playing it cool. Even now, though, an hour or so after the last encore, you can tell she’s amped

Dear E. Jean: I’m ready to send out invitations to my wedding. It will be small and elegant—just close friends and family. I’m hesitating about mailing an invitation to one of my oldest friends. He’s a hoot and my family loves him, but let him have two drinks and he gets loud and lewd, propositions
The driving shoe is an incredibly useful addition to your summer wardrobe. It is an elegant combination of the penny loafer’s dressiness and the traditional moccasin’s comfort.

And it’s all down to a spectacularly bad reputation, which has proven to have a hold strong enough to rival even the most unrelentingly powerful styling product. Hairspray, naysayers
Sneaker releases are now so frequent that describing the flurry of brand new kicks as ‘arrivals’ will no longer suffice, the phenomenon now has its own noun, the ‘drop’. We’re well on board for multiple kick drops (not drop kicks) but truth be told, we always find ourselves drawn right back to old favourites, and

Spray painting anti-war slogans seems messy, you can’t really function without that morning cup of tax-dodging coffee, and your place of work sadly doesn’t include mohawks in its acceptable uniform policy.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry did indeed quietly slip off on their honeymoon earlier this month but not to Canada, as some outlets reported.
