Jeans Are The New Power Suit

President Obama gave fashion critics something to talk about when he displayed a pair of "mom jeans" at a baseball game, Nicolas Sarkozy and his lovely wife Carla both donned denim for a recent trip to Egypt, and the Russian President, Dmitry Medvedev, chose jeans for a dinner date with Obama. Steve Jobs kept hi…

Car Crashes Into Couple’s Bedroom While They Sleep

What is the worst possible way to be woken up from your slumber at 4 a.m.? By a car crashing into your bed! No, this is not a cockamamie plot from a Hollywood action film; this is a real-life nightmare. Last week, University of Nevada students Kristin Palmer and Trent Wood were sleeping soundly whe…

Forbes’ List Of The Top-Earning DEAD Celebs Freaks Us Out

So much for resting in peace. Forbes magazine even wants dead celebs to work hard for their money. They just released a list titled "Top Earning Dead Celebrities." Of course, the primo place is not filled by anyone predictable. Apparently, the most valuable "deleb" is designer Yves Saint Laurent. Earlier this year, an auction of…

The Strapless Wedding Gown—Are You Over It?

Last weekend, at the wedding of Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, something of a style statement was made: Ivanka choose to wear a gown with sleeves. (Full disclosure: It was an orthodox Jewish wedding, so sleeves, depending on the rabbi doing the marrying, are sometimes required.) Immediately on Monday morning, Cathy Horyn, fashion critic of…

Don’t Have Your Halloween Wedding In Sleepy Hollow

A few years ago, a vaguely goth friend of mine got engaged to her boyfriend, who is so gothtastic that his name might as well be Azrael. The two of them planned a pretty non-traditional wedding—they wanted to fly to Transylvania and get hitched in a haunted castle. But when they told their parents this,…

Cheapskate: Target

Target was one of the first mega-retail chains to commit to selling affordable clothing and accessories alongside essentials like detergent, cosmetics, and food. Basically, it's a one-stop shopping destination for recessionistas who aren't willing to sacrifice style when on a budget. I've never seen any fashion item priced above $100, so you don't have to…

MoMA Chat Plates

When a guest doesn't know anyone at a party, she usually ends up talking to the host or congregating around the snacks and booze. But these Chat Plates designed by Ikuko Nakazawa, which resemble conversation bubbles from manga comics, will remind everyone that the whole point of a party is to schmooze. Each set include…

seasons savings: Granny’s Got a Brand New Bag

Last year for Christmas I bought my grandparents a DVD player. One year later, I think it's about time they own a DVD, and for cheap too.

Smile! Creepy Hat Forces You To Grin At All Times

Just what we all need—a hat that makes us smile. Constantly. It's called "The Happiness Hat" (obviously) and you either smile in it or suffer the consequences—literally, from a jolt of pain it inflicts upon you. For some reason I don't think Bright-Sided author Barbara Ehrenreich would be feeling this contraption—because as she sees it,…

The Halloween Inspiration Board: Blair Waldorf

Sure, Serena van der Woodsen is supposed to be the talk of the town, but we're more interested in Blair Waldorf's prep-school style. This costume has all the naughty school girl appeal with a touch of Upper East Side class. An added bonus? Each piece is really cute and completely re-wearable! Get the deets, after…

Tyra Banks Celebrates Halloween As A Kardashian

At first glance, it may seem like Tyra isn't looking any different than she usually does on the Halloween episode of her show (which airs tomorrow). But then you may notice that her booty is a little curvier, her hair a tad darker and waved just so, and her stance eerily familiar. There's clearly a…

Kelly Kapoor And Erin Hannon Are Gonna Give Rihanna, Beyonce, And Lady Gaga A Run For Their Money

There's a hot new girl group out of Scranton, PA, that's inspired by "Rihanna, Katy Perry, J.Hud, and all the Kardashians," and they might surpass all these influences if the rest of their music is anything like this first single. "The Office" characters Kelly Kapoor (Mindy Kaling) and Erin Hannon (Ellie Kemper) are Subtle Sexuality,…

The Wonderful World Of Musical Hand-Me-Downs

Out there pop singer Har Mar Superstar—who bears a striking resemblance to Ron Jeremy—wrote a song for Britney Spears called "Tall Boy." The tune was about having sex with tall men and drinking cans of beer, so it's not a big surprise that BritBrit passed on it. But Har Mar Superstar thinks this was, like,…

The Frisky’s Chic On The Street: Faux In Prague

Who needs real fur when fake looks this chic? Arame, visiting Prague from France, is the epitome of fabulous in a faux fur that she bought on Oxford Street in London. The cherry on top is a styling headscarf that only a select few can pull off (hi, Nicole Richie!) without looking like a fashio…

Why Was “Top Chef” So Pervy Last Night?

Last night's episode of "Top Chef" featured extra-special guest judge Natalie Portman, who forced the chefs to cook vegetarian food in a steakhouse (so cruel!). But they must have done something right, because when the judges sat down to eat, Natalie and Padma got a little frisky. Clip above!
