Ada Polla | August 21, 2014 | Style
All the while internet-stalking this amazing woman, I thought about what she taught us about style -- beyond "The Look." To me, she symbolizes sensuality over sexuality, casual elegance over self-conscious self-curation.

Emma Joslyn | August 21, 2014 | Gay Voices
Iggy Azalea is the new Miley Cyrus. In the same way that Miley served as a point of entry to many conversations about whiteness and cultural appropriation last year, Iggy is the latest example of how white artists snatch up elements of black culture, whitewash them, and then sell them to the mainstream as their own.

Dan Persons | August 21, 2014 | Entertainment
I had my concerns about The Giver, another teen-oriented film from the Weinstein Company. Serving as definite counter-balance to my trepidations: the presence at the helm of Phillip Noyce. Turns out my faith was not ill-founded.

Jim Hill | August 20, 2014 | Entertainment
With apologies to Mel Brooks, while it may be good to be the king, it's great to be the princess. Particularly if you're Sofia the First, Disney's little girl princess.

'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles': 5 Reasons to Watch the New Cartoon, Not the Movie

Hulu.com | August 20, 2014 | Entertainment
As Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles tops the box office for a second week in a row, we hate to say it, but a little part of our inner child dies. Between the 'roided out CGI turtles, the inevitable sexploitation of Megan Fox, and turtle lips (that should be enough right there), the new Turtles movie seemed poised to disappoint true fans from the get-go.

The Endlessly Discovered "Archeology" of Sally Kirkland

Liz Smith | August 20, 2014 | Entertainment
She has appeared, successfully in every medium. She teaches, lectures, is deeply spiritual but full of rowdy fun, still. And so it was with a great deal of interest I approached her coming film Archeology of a Woman, which will debut at the Village East Cinema next month in New York.

Michael Sigman | August 20, 2014 | Entertainment
My father, the songwriter Carl Sigman, had died a few days before at my parents' Long Island home and I'd just been on the receiving end of a verbal thrashing, in Thai, from an enraged restaurateur whose tiny ad we'd had the gall to run near the equally tiny ad of his Thai food rival.
