  • President Jimmy Carter on tour with ‘White House Diary’

    It was a lock-down situation at the Lincoln Triangle Barnes and Noble in New York City as former President Jimmy Carter made a special appearance Monday for the book signing of his latest book, "White House Diary." Secret Service agents flanked him, attendees were held at bay through an elaborate line system, and ready-to-be-signed books were passed through to the other side as though an invisible force field had been erected. Only one ordinary man infiltrated the system — NewJerseyNewsroom.com's celebrity correspondent Tom Murro, also known as the Celebrity Magnet. It started with a very exclusive invite to the event...

    On Wednesday afternoon, a pool report from the President’s vacation in Martha’s Vineyard contained a line about POTUS taking an envelope from an unidentified man. “One man, standing at the edge of the yellow police tape, handed POTUS something (it looked like a maroon 8.5x11 folder but pool was too far away to tell.) POTUS looked at it, then handed it to Nicholson [Obama’s trip director],” read the report. So who was the man, and what was in the envelope?

    OAK BLUFFS — During last year’s Obama family vacation on Martha’s Vineyard, part-time island resident Tom Murro and his daughter, Lauren, got to meet the president at Farm Neck Golf Club. This year, Murro and his daughter are coming back to the Vineyard, to try to complete a long effort to present the president with a gift, to thank him for making the time to pose with them for photographs last year. “Gifting Obama isn’t easy” said Murro, who doesn’t want to chance damaging the gift—a photograph—by mailing it, and can’t figure out how to get it to the president....

    Love it or hate it, you can thank 4chan for countless online phenomena like lolcats, the ubiquitous photos of cats combined with humorous text, often in "kitty speak." The image-based Internet forum has been the breeding ground for some of the Web's most well-known inside jokes, but it's still unknown or mysterious to many. But thanks to the Smoking Gun, a site dedicated to unearthing court and government documents, we now know a little more about how the site works directly from the mouth of its founder, Christoper Poole. Poole delivered testimony, just posted by The Smoking Gun, in the...

    Celebrity and entertainment correspondent Tom Murro says that baseball legend Yogi Berra has a unique gift for President Barack Obama. As Yogi would say, "It ain't over till it's over," and the Hall of Famer is still going strong. Yogi Berra, who now lives in Montclair, New Jersey is an 15-time All-Star and three-time winner of the American League’s Most Valuable Player award as a catcher for the New York Yankees. Berra, who obviously has a sense of humor, was right on the money when he famously stated that “baseball is 90% mental — the other half is physical.” Celebrity...

    Sure, you read reviews and take recommendations from friends before you buy a new cellphone, but have you ever stopped to consider what the inventor of the cellphone uses on a daily basis? C-SPAN has, and recently took the opportunity to ask the man himself, Marty Cooper, that very question during a wide-ranging interview. While Cooper said that he has used an iPhone previously, he recently passed it on to his grandson in favor of a Motorola Droid, which he says he chose because he wanted to get more experience with Android. But that's not all, Cooper also revealed that...

    More Americans are following the lead of President and Michelle Obama when it comes to naming their daughters, the Social Security Administration said Friday. "Maliyah," a version of the name "Malia" that the president and first lady gave their oldest daughter, made the biggest jump in popularity among girls names in 2009, moving 342 spots up to No. 296. The name "Malia" moved up 153 spots to No. 192. Meanwhile, "Sasha," the name of the Obamas' younger daughter, came in at No. 261 - having moved up 101 spots. There was no bounce for the first lady: The name "Michelle"...

When asked who he wanted to meet most at the gala, Elton followed with another jab saying, "Not Sarah Palin but anybody else would be fine." Fellow TIME 100 honorees included actor Neil Patrick Harris, Taylor Swift, Ben Stiller and Ashton Kutcher. "I can't even get my dogs...

We dig their long women’s jackets, a perfect compliment to the Raw denim.

    When asked to describe Victoria Beckham and her influence on the fashion world, the only word best to describe her would be ‘underdog’. In a strange way, Victoria Beckham in my opinion has always been the odd one out. When I think of her and her career so far, I can’t help but compare her to that of a young girl trying to fit in, but never feeling comfortable in her own skin or rather shall I say, never comfortable in the skin she’s wearing. Take the Spice Girls for instance, the group of the 90’s, each girl had their...

    There is no doubt about it: we all like to think we dress for ourselves. Why do we like to think that? Because it says, ‘I exude confidence, I have high self esteem and I like to feel feminine.’ It shows independence and that you have your own mind, but just how many of us do actually dress for ourselves? I would say I dress for myself about 95 percent of the time. I like to power dress, wearing what I want gives me confidence. I seek comfort in what I wear and receive more comfort out of jeans and...

It’s bright, cool and sexy in its own way and very emblematic of how a Dutch architect would design footwear. Solid at the base, with lots of loops for support and an emphasis on soaring verticality. United Nude has produced a striking S/S collection that will please shoe lovers worldwide.

    Ave Maria! V Magazine #64 with the help of legendary photographer Mario Testino and those always under-appreciated fashion stylists casts Daria Werbowy as Mexican film star Maria Felix in a homage to the Latino actress and her penchant for flamboyant hats and big gaudy diamonds.
  • Kate Moss! Mikhail Baryshnikov! Together At Last In Arthouse Ballet Flick

    The 62-year-old Baryshnikov has a much greater on screen oeuvre than Moss, having starred in Sex And The City as Carrie Bradshaw’s Russian artist boyfriend. He’ll likely dance his way right into Kate’s heart as long as he can get her to put down her cocktail. Oh, it’s an ingenious PR move by Moss and her Reps and a step up from her previous dance engagement as a pole dancer for a White Stripes video. While the flick could have all the makings of a pretentious art house disaster, maybe it will win the Oscar for Best Short Film By...

    The King of Fashion, Alexander McQueen, was eulogized, mourned and remembered at his funeral yesterday. Held at Saint Paul’s Church in London, it was a small, quiet, private affair attended by his family members and friends Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell and Stella McCartney. McQueen had been found dead in his Mayfair (London) home on the 11th of February, the heart-wrenching news came just days after his beloved mother, Joyce, passed on after suffering from a long-term illness. Suspicions had been raised as to whether the fashion legend took his own life after struggling to cope with the overwhelming grief caused...

    What makes military style clothing so irresistible to women? Whatever the “it” is, this hot trend has erupted like a volcano during the past few years with a widespread incorporation into the fashion industry and women’s wardrobes of everything from fatigues to camouflage outfits.

    Leapin' lizards Batman! You mean in addition to having to rake all those leaves from the yard we have to rake the roof too? That's right Robin lad. If you have a barn, tool shed, equipment or garden shed that has a galvanized steel roof and is subject to a build up of leaves then you're going to have to remove them. Leaves, especially Oak leaves are high in tannic acid and if you let them build up for a relatively short period of time they will destroy the galvanized coating on the metal and leave nothing but a coat...

    IT’S been a tough year for fashion. The juice has been virtually squeezed out of it. Luxury retailers, after seeing margins erode like Nantucket beachfront, have leaned on designers to cut their prices. To stay afloat, design houses are reducing quality and promoting value. Meanwhile fast-fashion chains are eating their lunch as they reproduce runway looks in six weeks. As a symbol of self-inflicted misery, the listless, half-starved model may be perfect after all. At least the fashion world had Michelle Obama and Sarah Palin to help avoid the impression that, you know, nobody cares about clothes and big dangly...
