  • Joan Rivers is bringing her brand of abrasive fashion police back to E's Red Carpet! We hope she makes them eat some serious crow. [The Hollywood Reporter]
  • A new healthcare bill has proposed a tax on indoor tanning. Look out, DJ Paulie D! [NYTimes]

  • Fish skin bikinis. Somehow logical, yet...horrifying. [Racked]
