1. to bewitch: The beauty of the moon ensorcelled them.
Origin: Ensorcell comes from the Old French verb ensorceler meaning “to bewitch” and is related to “sorcerer” and “sorcery.” It entered English in the late 1500s.
“He ensorcells the audience with Maria’s stiff skirts and mincing walk, her silly smirks and creaky flirtations, her disingenuous modesty.” - Hilton Als, “The Mirror Has Two Faces,” The New Yorker, November 25, 2013
The photographer Jane Hilton became enamored with the American West at an early age. Growing up in suburban England, her father made sure she was exposed to John Wayne, Stagecoach, and The Virginian. An infatuation with the American dream took hold and soon, Hilton would find herself roadtripping across the country, camera in tow. She began photographing the cowboys she met along the way, but rather than photograph them on their horses, she shot them in their homes.

Donald Trump is under fire again for commenting on women’s looks. But rather than criticizing them, this time, he praised Paris Hilton’s appearance. The part people are upset about is that he was recounting an interaction that took place when she was 12.
Taylor Swift Starts Crazy Dance Party at Golden Globes Bash With Hailee Steinfeld, Sarah Hyland
All she wants to do is dance, dance, dance! Taylor Swift was in a very festive mood after the 2014 Golden Globe Awards on Sunday, Jan. 12. Despite losing “Best Original Song” to U2's Bono, the “Sweeter Than Fiction” singer couldn’t wait to keep the party going.
Changing out of her floor-length Carolina Herrera ball gown and into a flirty, crocheted Julien MacDonald number, the 24-year-old country-pop superstar joined pals Jaime King, Sarah Hyland, and Hailee Steinfeld at the Weinstein Company’s post-Globes bash at the Beverly Hilton Hotel’s Old Trader Vic’s. Not long after arriving, the group broke out into a raucous, impromptu dance party.
“Everyone was really into it,” an eyewitness told Us Weekly of the ladies, noting that they were “literally jumping and dancing” to the likes of R. Kelly, Jay Z, and Rihanna. “Taylor was basically dancing as if she was at a heavy metal concert and loving it.”
“They were dancing HARD,” another source added. “Taylor had a flute of Moet [& Chandon champagne] in her hand and was dancing and singing along to Def Leppard’s ‘Pour Some Sugar on Me.’ Jaime King and Taylor were grinding along to the song, facing each other, but not in a sexual way.”
The girls “kicked it up a notch” further and got “really into it” when M.I.A.’s “Paper Planes” came on, the onlooker said. They only stopped once the DJ started playing Lorde’s “Royals.”
Swift and her pals were the life of the party – and even attracted the attention of actor Peter Facinelli and his pals. A source told Us that the Twilight actor was excited to hear that the singer was at the bash but that he hesitated to approach her. By the time he and his friend got up the nerve to walk by, she was getting ready to leave – so they “chickened out.”
