Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Ruth Bader Ginsberg is five feet and one inch of all-around toughness. She’s been one of our favorite women for quite some time. What’s not to love about the icon who has fought for women’s rights for nearly 60 years and has no intention of stepping down from the bench at the spry age of 81? And while some wines and cheeses may mellow with age, not so for our Ruth. Her dissent in last week’s Hobby Lobby case was 35 pages of fine legal writing blended with a healthy helping of controlled rage.

The internet, in all its bountiful, weird glory, has turned the tiny living legend into a meme, a song, nail art, and of course, an amazing Tumblr… plus plenty of stylish ways to show your love for, yes, the Notorious R.B.G.

NYU Law Student Shanna Knizhnik started the Notorious R.G.B Tumblr nearly one year ago, and it’s still as amazing and hilarious as ever. Get down with R.B.G. and purchase this tee—there’s a direct link from Knizhnik’s Tumblr page, and I love the idea of the T-shirt proceeds supporting the busy law student/meme creator.

Olivia Wilde

I dunno about you, but I know every time I meet a super-attractive working professional, the first question out of my mouth is, “But your ass is so fine…why did you even bother getting a job?” Oh, wait. I don’t do that, because that’s insane, as well as super creepy. And yet, GQ magazine’s movie critic Tom Carson is catching some well-deserved heat for his comments on Olivia Wilde’s performance in her new film Third Person, where she stars opposite Liam Neeson. [Ed. note: GQ has since apologized for the remarks via Twitter, and Olivia acknowledged via retweet.] She plays a writer, which inspired enough of a "Huh? Whaaaaaat?" reaction from GQ writer Tom Carson to pen this comment:

She's supposed to be a writer too, but your belief in that won't outlast Wilde scampering naked through hotel corridors once Neeson playfully locks her out of his room. With that tush, who'd need to be literate? Who'd want to?

I’ve been crushing on Jenn Rogien for years. As the costume designer for HBO’s Girls and Netflix’s Orange Is the New Black, it was love at first sight (of Lena Dunham in a mesh shirt, that is). And as a costume designer myself, I can’t help admiring someone who seems both effortlessly glamorous and hilariously down-to-earth—particularly since I know firsthand that the job is often more about waiting in line at dusty thrift stores than wearing designer shoes to red carpet events. So when I was presented with the opportunity to chat with her about the second season of OITNB (just released on Netflix), I jumped at it.

Spoiler alert: Jenn Rogien is awesome. About halfway through the interview, I started fangirling, garbling my words, and blurted, “I’m sorry, I’m just really nervous right now.” She made a joke about it, laughed, and then apologized for the periodic squawking noises from her phone—as she was standing in a Burlington Coat Factory mid-interview, shopping for season three, being interrupted by store loudspeaker announcements asking for additional cashiers to come to the register.

She has one of the coolest jobs on the planet and a terrific sense of humor about an awkward moment. Crush complete. Let’s meet Jenn Rogien.

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
