Clueless the Musical, Starring… Katy Perry?

As if we didn’t already love Clueless enough, director Amy Heckerling recently divulged to Vulture that she is bringing her cult-favorite 90s film to Broadway. Working as hard as Cher did to make over Tai, Amy is debating who should tackle the leading role of the movie’s beloved Beverly Hills princess.

Kay Perry

Amy told Vulture, “Katy Perry has expressed interest, and I love her to death.” While I’d love to see the doe-eyed singer on stage, the director also threw another rising star’s name in the ring, adding: “Maybe Iggy [Azalea] wants to do it!” After all, Iggy did pull inspiration from Cher and the gang in the music video for her chart-topping hit, “Fancy.” While the cast gets sorted out, I’ll be anxiously awaiting the dance routines that accompany my favorite scenes.

Refine That Palate: Chef Jody Adams Dishes Cooking Tips at the Boston Wine Expo

Last Sunday, instead of my usual afternoon of brunch and Bloody Marys, I headed down to the Seaport Boston Hotel and World Trade Center for the 23rd-annual Boston Wine Expo. Oenophiles from Oregon, Italy, and beyond gathered to promote their best-selling bottles, while local chefs from hot spots like The Tip Tap Room, towne, and Tavern Road gave cooking demonstrations to eager foodies.

First up on my must-see list? Chef Jody Adams, a James Beard Award winner (it’s kind of a big deal in the biz), author, and founding force behind two acclaimed area restaurants, Rialto and Trade. In addition to serving up her tasty Tomato and Farro Soup – a recipe we just happened to find on her blog, The Garum Factory – Adams spilled a few priceless kitchen tips for aspiring cooks.

The Resort Scene Awaits: Get Packing with These Vacation-Ready Looks

As wonderful as the holiday season is with its merrymaking, feasting, and socializing, it’s also exhausting. And come January, there’s no place I’d rather be than on a beach halfway through a piña colada or shopping oceanside. But how does one pack for all these fun-filled activities (without bringing along three super-sized suitcases)? Well, it’s all about items that work overtime.

On a Brisk Note: 3 Looks Built for Every Winter Activity

Once temps dip below 30 degrees, it’s a mad dash for all things wool, down, and puffy (and if there was such a thing as a portable space heater, that too). But rather than opting for the same overly padded, linebacker-style look whenever you walk out the door, it’s better to tailor your layers to your activity. Here’s how:

Travel Trivia: 5 Out-There Facts About London

Pardon us. We – like the rest of Us Weekly–reading humankind – have gotten so wrapped up in baby George‘s public debut and the Duchess’s incredible post-baby body that we’ve lost track of some of the other things that make London tick. Like these five quick and completely non-Royal facts.

Travel Trends - London

  1. Covent Garden is a spelling mistake. The area used to be the market garden for a convent.
  2. The street-style label seen most during London Fashion Week was Zara, hands down.
  3. Waterloo Bridge was built mostly by women.
  4. The Underground doesn’t always travel underground, and the Overground doesn’t always travel – you guessed it – above ground.
  5. There are more than 300 languages spoken in London – more than in any other city in the world.

Fashion, art, and culture intersected Monday, October 21, at the 4th-annual Project Art charity event in a lofty factory space in New York’s SoHo.

Get Glowing: Celebrate Confidence & Fitness at Boston’s lucy Light Forest, October 3 – 13

That feel-good, confident vibe you get from working out – what would it look like if you could see it? Answer: Over 10,000 twinkling LED lights illuminating Boston’s Esplanade trail – a hot spot for the city’s joggers.

Okay, so maybe not exactly like that, but that’s what we saw as we walked through this solar-powered scene to the lucy Light Forest opening celebrations last night.

Snowboarding Lingo 101: How to Talk Like a Pro

Learning to snowboard is more than just a balancing act. There’s that whole terminology thing, too. So to help you get your footing – or rather, wording – we complied a list of lingo you should know before hitting up the chairlift this season.

BLG_OAKLEY-[1]

1. Biff
To crash or fall.

2. Jib
Using a snowboard to make stylish contact with a non-snow surface, like a rock.

3. Fakie
Riding a snowboard backwards.

4. Ollie
One of the first tricks you’ll learn as a snowboarder. It means to jump by using the tail of your board as a spring.

5. Nollie
The opposite of ollie-ing. Here, you use the nose of the snowboard to jump it off the ground and into the air.

6. Switch
To ride down the slope with your weaker foot at the front of the board.

7. Goofy
If you ride with your right foot leading, as opposed to your left foot, you ride “goofy.” (PS: Don’t take offense.)

8. Steezy
A slang term combining “style” and “ease.”

9. Pow
Short for “powder.” It’s fresh, untouched snow – and great for boarding.

10. Shreddin’ the Gnar
Riding the terrain. Basically, a cool way to say, “We’re going snowboarding.”

Our Oakley Boutique opens Wednesday, September 25, at 11AM ET.
