In the interest of documenting an era of American history in which we tolerated movie stars being uncontrollable booze hounds, Lindsay Lohan’s bag company is considering photographing her wearing a court-ordered alcohol-monitoring bracelet in an ad for her line of bags. Things have reached a pretty pass, kids.

The always adorable and newly bearded Aaron Eckhart recently opened up to People about his secret fashion dreams.
Our Sunday routine is a simple one: wake up, run a brush over the teeth (and, if we’re lucky, a comb through the hair), check phone for any embarrassing text messages and find our way to the New York Times Sunday Styles section to pour over the latest batch of snaps by legendary photographer Bill Cunningham.
