NSD Approved: Krysten Ritter

29 Aug

Everyone has girls like Krysten Ritter.  Girls that aren’t hot in a normal way.  Girls that when you say you think they are amazingly hot the whole group laughs and tells you that you’re an idiot.  Krysten Ritter was like that for me.  She wore boots in movies, was kind of gothic, was pale, and had a great sense of humor.  She had a great role in Breaking Bad, only strengthening my adoration (Breaking Bad unbelievable show by the way if you haven’t seen). She was hilarious in She’s Out of My League as the bitchy best friend.  But then she just went ahead and said “oh hey everyone who thought I was just some punk girl with a good sense of humor, look at me in Esquire…” And wow.  Ritter posed for the always great Me in my Place spread for Esquire and left any doubt aside on whether she is hot or not.  She now stars in the truly terrible looking “Don’t Trust the B**** in Apartment 23” that you couldn’t put a gun to my head to make me watch.  But Ritter.  Wow.  NSD Approved.  In my mind anyway….am I still alone?

NSD Approved: Olympic Javelin Thrower Leryn Franco

25 Jul

I have to admit I’d never heard of Leryn Franco until about 20 minutes ago.  I was minding my own business, looking for pictures of the hottest 15 olympic female athletes I could find to post on opening day of the olympics (post going up Friday), and I stumbled across a picture of this girl.  A quick google search yielded literally thousands of pictures of one of the hottest girls I’ve ever seen in any setting, let alone an olympic athlete.  She’s a Paraguayan Javelin thrower?  That is one of the most random combinations of words I’ve ever typed in a sentence.  Apparently she’s a full model in the offseason, for good reason.  Some of these pictures are pretty risque, so click on them at your own risk.  When NBC is showing tape delay Javelin Throwing matches (meets?) at 3AM, I will be watching.   Full gallery after the jump.   Continue reading

NSD Approved: Maria Menounos

19 Apr

For anyone that missed our staff’s barrage of tweets on Monday, happy late National Skirt Day!  (follow us at @natlskirtday).  As this is the happiest time of the year, it’s time to welcome a new member to the NSD Approved family, the second hardest club to get into in the US (Augusta National being #1) obviously.  Welcome to Maria Menounos, who at this point is getting pretty damn close to entering the top five most marryable girls in the world category.  Not only is she smoking hot, her interests include sitting courtside at sporting events decked out in her team’s gear (although it sucks that she cheers for Boston, but she’s from there so it’s okay), going to the beach and wearing ridiculous bikinis, playing in charity softball events and looking incredible, and honoring absurd bets that she makes, including wearing a bikini in times square on national television.  Keep doing what you’re doing Maria.  And welcome to the club. Also as a side note, Derek Hough can go fuck himself with his make out sessions that he’s having with her right now on Dancing with the Stars.  Full gallery after the jump.   Continue reading

NSD Approved: Lake Bell

2 Feb

Lake Bell is weirdly attractive.  She’s like one of those girls you don’t think is that hot when you first meet her, but every time you see her she gets a little more attractive.  Maybe it’s her personality, maybe it is how she dresses, maybe it’s a little bit of both.  Whatever your reasoning, everyone has those girls that they think are cute but their friends just don’t see it.  Lake Bell is one of those for me.  I had always seen her in shitty romcoms playing the “unlucky in love friend,” and honestly I never gave her much notice.  That changed when I started watching How to Make it in America, where she plays Ben’s ex-girlfriend as a quirky, fashion-savvy Brooklyn girl who quits her job to travel the world.  She comes off incredibly endearing and you also realize this: she is hot.  And apparently it’s not just me.  GQ and Esquire seem to share my weird affinity.  Either way, after the jump check out her whole spread in the always incredible Me in My Place.    Continue reading

NSD Approved: Vanessa Hudgens

21 Jun

For weeks I’ve wanted to include Vanessa Hudgens in one of the Matchups of the Week, similar to Bar Rafaeli vs. Blake Lively.  The problem was, who is similar to her?  Sure, I could have done “Former Disney Channel stars who are now incredibly hot,” but who does that leave?  I could have done Britney Spears or Christina Aguilera, but they haven’t been that attractive since the late 90’s.  I could have done someone like Ashley Tisdale, but she’s mediocre-at-best.  I considered Hilary Duff, but she’s not famous anymore.  The best choice was Aly Michalka, who is definitely hot but just doesn’t have the same allure that Hudgens does.  So thank Vanessa Hudgens for a new feature: NSD Approved.  We’ll alternate these with matchups, but we promise we’ll only reserve them for girls of no parallel, for girls who we approve as true ambassadors and pioneers of National Skirt Day, for the type of girls who are the very reason we get so excited about National Skirt Day each year.  NSD Approved girls are the top of the skirt wearing world: the Michael Jordans if you will.  Hudgens is one of these.  She started out innocent enough (albeit hot then too), starring in the hugely popular High School Musical movies with Zac Efron and the aforementioned Ashley Tisdale.  But even in her teeny bopper days, you knew Hudgens had a wild side when nude pictures of her were released, causing the straight-edge Disney Channel huge embarassment and male teenagers everywhere happiness.  After finishing the last of the HSM movies, Hudgens dumped Zac Efron and moved into the next phase of her life: partying, posing in increasingly sexual magazine spreads, and partying all over the world.   Recently Hudgens was seen taking molly at the Coachella festival (her publicist said it was white chocolate.  What a lazy response.  Does she expect anyone to believe that?  I know I always bring bagged white chocolate to music festivals with 100 degree heat for one), while more nude pictures were leaked.  Hudgens is also multi-talented, winning rave reviews for her turn on Broadway in Rent, and has a bunch of movies lined up.  Here’s hoping that she replaces ugly stars like Cameron Diaz or Katherine Heigl and gives us something to get excited about at the movies again.  Full gallery after the jump.
