Celebrity weddings have a reputation for being above and beyond anything we mere mortals could ever imagine. But what about the old school celebs? What about the weddings of the men and women who created Hollywood glamour? Come take a look at our 10 favorite vintage celebrity wedding photos.
Recently, "Glamour" blogger Melissa Melms decided it was time to take douchiness to a whole new level with a post titled: "We Can't Be Friends Unless You Have a Boyfriend. I'm Serious…Kind of." Actually she is more serious than she is "kind of," as in her post she proceeds to basically toot about how great she and her relationship is, while her single friends are, well, lame.
We loved Lauren Conrad and watching the drama of her life unfold each week on Laguna Beach and The Hills, but we must say, the grownup Conrad impresses us even more these days.
Every month, I always enjoy reading Jake's column in Glamour magazine. Since 1956, it's been penned by a slew of anonymous, single men who've helped countless women navigate the dating world by writing honestly and openly about the game of love from a man's perspective. One of the more recent Jakes has written a book, "Always Hit On The Wingman: And 9 Other Secret Rules For Getting The Love Life You Want."
If the way to a man's heart is through his stomach, the ladies at Glamour must have men lined up around the block. Does Engagement Chicken ring a bell? We're willing to bet it's the most-used chicken recipe in the world: an editor at the magazine made it years ago for her boyfriend, who immediately dropped to his knees and proposed. The editor shared the recipe with the office, published it in the magazine, and to date, the chicken has been attributed to 70 marriages and counting. Now, you can find that recipe—and 99 more—in Glamour Editor-in-Chief Cindi Leive's new book, 100 Recipes Every Woman Should Know: Engagement Chicken and 99 Other Fabulous Dishes to Get You Everything You Want in Life. The ladies at Glamour were generous enough to share another tasty recipe from the book: Love You Pancakes. Here's what the mastermind behind the recipe—and Glamour editor—Caroline Campion told us about the from-the-heart pancakes:
Dating advice from Glamour's own 'Hairy Bradshaw.' "After going on more dates than John Mayer on a hot streak, I have managed to pick up a few pointers that anyone could use. It's time for me to share whatever small bits of wisdom I've picked up along the way."
In the world of competitive pining, it's not an exaggeration to say that I'm a legend. My journey towards greatness began in elementary school, when I nursed a secret crush on the lovely Naomi for five long years, an All Saints School record that remains unbeaten. By the time I got to high school, I was so good at longing lunchroom glances that I was named captain of the varsity unrequited love squad. And I'm sure most of you know all about my Crysman-trophy winning college career. My years as a pro have been marked by great triumphs--the candle I held for a woman with a boyfriend is in the Pining Hall of Fame--but also monumental struggles. To be perfectly honest, it's hard to pine in New York City.
On more than one occasion I have grown attached to women who initially didn't really do it for me. After all, my idealistic sister and I were both raised to believe that the most important criterion for judging people is their character, not bone structure or body mass index. And we're not the only ones. While the celebrity culture we live in glorifies conformity and the pursuit of cosmetic perfection, humans are still capable of appreciating unique beauty.
