Nicole Kidman Back to Red

Nicole Kidman Back to Red
Nicole Kidman has finally decided to go back to red for a Jimmy Choo ad. Hallelujah! I swear actresses lose any sense of self they had once they go blonde (and they always go blonde from being red): see Lindsay Lohan. However, I will admit it only recently dawned on me that maybe they didn’t... Read more »

Ginger Pro-Phile: Adam Lambert

Ginger Pro-Phile: Adam Lambert
HOLY SHIT! My friend N. just BLEW MY MIND. ADAM LAMBERT/GLAMBERT IS A GINGER!!! AND NOT EVEN THE DAYWALKER KIND. How did I not spot one of my own? I did feel something eerily familiar when I looked into his hauntingly blue eyes on the TV screen, and I did wonder how someone with his... Read more »

The Redhead Version of "It Gets Better"

The Redhead Version of "It Gets Better"
The fairy-model Lily Cole claimed redism — or making fun of redheads — is as bad as racism! I joke about that a lot on this blog, and I, like most redheads, was made fun of growing up for having red hair. The worst of it for me, was being called “Firecrotch” as early as... Read more »

Redhead RoundUp - Yeehaw!

Redhead RoundUp - Yeehaw!
Happy Friday Ginger-Philes! Between a ginger spawn of a mom in blackface with blonde hair and even more celebrities dying their hair red as a publicity stunt (yawn), this has been a week chockful of news almost as disgusting as daywalkers: 1. Some Mexican redhead is in a boxing fight. I would know more about... Read more »

Ginger Pro-Philes: Lily Cole

Ginger Pro-Philes: Lily Cole
If I’d only be allowed to have one ginger I’m jealous of, it’d have to be Lily Cole. Cole is essentially a fairy princess who somehow rocks the cover of Vogue despite seemingly jumping off the canvas of a pre-Raphaelite painting. (P.S. I don’t know exactly what I mean by pre-Raphaelite. BUT I think you... Read more »

Another one bites the dust...

Another one bites the dust...
Yet another celebrity dyed her hair red and made national news despite it looking horribly fake. But extra points for dying the eyebrows red too (according to E! News or some shit like that). Speaking of which, it’s weird when she was blonde she had dark eyebrows and now that she’s going darker she’s making... Read more »

Staying Power: Redheaded Stars

Staying Power: Redheaded Stars
Yesterday, as I was getting my annual pedicure (not because I’m a girly-girl like that but because besides being a ginger, I’ve been blessed with feet that “look like Africa” according to my blonde Californian friend), I happened to page through an issue of Vanity Fair in which they captured actors and actresses of the...

Hot or Not? Nicole Kidman Golden Globes

I always admired Nicole Kidman for her redhead-appropriate fashion choices up until about “Cold Mountain” time, when she dyed her hair blonde, seemingly around the same time as another beautiful redheaded star gone bad/blonde. However, with her dress and hair choice at the recent Golden Globes, she has redeemed herself. While not as fiery as... Read more »

Hot or Not: Emma Stone Golden Globes

I wrote about Emma Stone and her fake gingerness not too long ago. Recently, she supposedly “stunned everyone” with her choice of dress for the Golden Globes. I for one, hate, hate hate it. The only good thing about it is that it’s purple; the greatest color of all for our porcelain, freckled skin. But... Read more »

Ginger Pro-Philes: Emma Stone

Ginger Pro-Philes: Emma Stone
If you’ve been reading my blog and/or tweets, you probably know that I’m a terribly envious person and will likely land in the 7th circle of hell. That is why I have chosen to highlight Emma Stone as a famous ginger. My boyfriend has a crush on her, so clearly I have to learn everything... Read more »

    thegingerphiles

    The Ginger Phile has had the unfortunate disposition of being a ginger since birth. She has tried various medications to cure her gingervitis, including therapies such as tantrum-throwing. Her efforts have been to no avail. Instead, she is trying to write it out, via this blog. Unfortunately, she doesn't think it will bear a soul for her. The Ginger Phile is from the exotic land of Wisconsin, where she had daily inner turmoil over whether she was a ginger or a daywalker. So far, three of three votes say daywalker. She begs to differ, as someone recently told her they would want to be with her if they were biking at night because she is so pale.
