    Prince Harry and his rumored girlfriend, Cressida Bonas. (Photo: Getty Images)It may be freezing in the Swiss Alps, but things are heating up between Prince Harry and his new rumored girlfriend, Cressida Bonas. Reportedly the two were seen “kissing like teenagers,” and photographed embracing on the slopes of Verbier during a birthday celebration for Prince Harry’s uncle, Prince Andrew.

    But who is this young woman who appears to have stolen the heart of our favorite royal ‘spare’? Here are ten things to know about Cressida Bonas.

    She’s described as a “society model.” What the heck does that mean?

    She’s a socialite, like Paris Hilton. Cressida is the daughter of “renowned businessman Jeffrey Bonas and 60s model Lady Mary Curzon, the heir to the Curzon banking family.”

    Her mom was a 60s wild child.

    Cressida’s mother Lady Mary Curzon once “posed semi-naked for a coffee table photographic book and went on to get married and divorced four times,” according to the Daily Mail.

    She’s accustomed to public scrutiny.

    When she was just a teenager, Britain’s Tatler magazine ran a

  • Japanese Women Rent Their Legs to Advertisers, Give New Meaning To 'Your Ad Here.'

    Are we really ready to turn our bodies into billboards for a few extra bucks? Japanese advertisers are banking on it, offering women money in exchange for the use of their thighs. Participants paste temporary tattoos of brand logos on their legs and spend the day exposing them to oglers. To be eligible for ad space, you must be at least 18-years-old and connected to least 20 people on social networking sites. The idea comes as part of the advertising maxim that ads should run “wherever people are looking.”

    As of November 2012, about 1,300 women have registered their legs to be part of ad campaigns with Absolute Territory PR, the publicity team behind the bizarre media blitz. In fact the name of the PR company, “Absolute Territory,” is a translation of the Japanese phrase “zettai

  • Guys: It's okay to cry now

    Even James Bond cries. (Photo: Sam Taylor Wood)With the Oscars just a few days away, an intimate performance can be a game-changer when comes to taking home that golden statue. Hugh Jackman's emotional performance in "Les Miserables" may just earn him his first Oscar, and his fellow nominee Daniel Day Lewis openly admits he cries easily at the movies. 

    Big Boys Do Cry: 12 Men Who Bravely Tear Up in Public

    Choked-up actors were once the subject of jokey internet memes, but these days their tears are more revered. For reference, see photographer Sam Taylor Wood's recent viral photo series, “Men Crying,” featuring tough-guy actors like Sean Penn and Daniel Craig in various states of emotional distress. The series itself is Oscar-worthy and raises a cultural question beyond the realm of movie magic.

    Is public emotion becoming more acceptable for men in general?

    Believe it or not, crying was once considered a sign of masculine strength. “Medieval warriors and Japanese samurai cried during times of epic tragedy. In Western culture, a

  • Kate Middleton Debuts Royal Baby Bump (and Awesome Maternity Dress)

    Kate Middleton at Hope House on Tuesday morning. (Photo: Getty Images)Meet the royal baby bump. On Tuesday morning, the Duchess of Cambridge was glowing and showing as she made her first official appearance in months. Despite the intense scrutiny surrounding her pregnancy, the pregnant Kate Middleton was all smiles during her visit to Hope House, a woman’s rehab center in London. The appearance is her first official engagement since her hospitalization in late December for acute morning sickness

    She was wearing a Max Mara Studio wrap dress which she reportedly purchased at the discount website Matchers for $229, marked down from about $462. The Telegraph called the dress "unseasonably flimsy," but that probably won't stop moms-to-be from hunting down knock-offs. A spokesperson from the designer told Hello! Magazine that sales go “through the roof” whenever Kate wears the brand.

    A swarm of photographers waited eagerly for Kate’s arrival, hoping to capture the first

    Kate looked happy and healthy as she talked with Hope House employees outside the facility. She was wearing a Max Mara Studio wrap-dress which she reportedly purchased at the discount website Matchers for $229, marked down from about $462. A spokesperson from the designer told Hello! Magazine that whenever Kate wears the brand, sales go “through the roof.”

    A swarm of photographers waited eagerly for Kate’s arrival, hoping to capture the first official evidence of the royal baby bump. Last week, despite protest from the royal family, an Italian tabloid published images of Kate in a

  • Who Was the Topless Teenage Model at Fashion Week?

    Lily McMenamy at Marc Jacobs. (Photo: Getty Images)On Thursday night 18-year-old Lily McMenamy made social media tidal waves when she strutted down the runway at Marc Jacobs wearing nothing but shorts and heels, covering her breasts with one fishnet-gloved arm. According to the website Fashionista, nearly everyone in the room snapped a photo with their phones.

    Luckily for Lily (and for Marc Jacobs), her parents aren’t likely to file charges. Her mother is super-model Kristen McMenamy, and her step-dad is fashion photographer Miles Aldridge. For this fashion family, walking down the runway practically buck-naked is just another day at the office.

    Shortly after signing with Next Agency in October 2012, she walked Hedi Selimane’s debut for Yves Saint Laurent, “in front of the most intimidating front row ever,” according to Elle UK, and the very next day she walked Chanel.

    Undoubtedly Lily’s famous mom had something to do with her major debut last year. Kristen McMenamy was one of the 90s biggest supermodels and has managed to continue her

  • Lady Crush: Patrick Wilson's Wife. The awesome wife of the new "Girls" guy.

    Patrick wife and Dagmara Dominczyk. (Photo: Getty Images.)And with a single tweet Dagmara Dominczyk put to rest some serious sexist B.S. on the internet. Remember how this week started with "Girls" haters questioning whether Lena Dunham's character was "hot enough" for her new boyfriend, played by Patrick Wilson?  Plenty of feminist bloggers came to Dunham's defense, but one response was particularly effective.

    Patrick Wilson’s wife, the actress Dagmara Dominczyk took to her Twitter account to defend both the episode and Dunham herself. In response to a hateful tweet that read “Patrick Wilson is so hot he would never do Lena Dunham,” Dominczyk responded, “Funny, his wife is a size 10, muffin top & all & he does her just fine. Least that’s what I hear ;) rule #1 – never say never.”

    Oh, haters! You just got owned.

    Dominczyk went on to compliment Dunham on the series. “I think Lena Dunham is pretty great. Love her boobs, admire her balls. Proud of the episode of my hubby proud of GIRLS.”

    This girl-on-girl respect is awesome, and that’s not the

  • Patrick Wilsons Wife is Awesome

    Patrick wife and Dagmara Dominczyk. (Photo: Getty Images.)The Internet exploded after last Sunday night’s episode of GIRLS. The controversy? Whether or not it was “realistic” for a man as attractive as Patrick Wilson to have sex with a woman who looks like Lena Dunham. Haters and trolls took to Twitter to spew their negative comments about Dunham’s looks, and feminist bloggers defended the episode. But we were impressed by one response in particular.
