Sofia Coppola To Direct New Dior Fragrance Commercial?

Rumor has it that Sofia Coppola will be directing another Dior fragrance commercial, this time starring Natalie Portman, Dior Parfum’s new ambassador. Those of you who obsessed over Coppola’s last Dior commercial (above), like we did, will be a little bit thrilled about this news. Coppola and Portman were both spotted filming in Pari…

I Criticized My Mother-in-Law Online — And Then She Found Out

I called it “Got MIL?” and in hindsight, posting it was not my most prudent move.

It was an essay that discussed, at some discomfiting length, my relationship with my mother-in-law. It was not an essay that was particularly flattering to my mother-in-law, because she was — is — not a particularly easy mother-in-law.

An Open Letter To Lady Gaga About Luc Carl

Dear Lady Gaga,

I am writing you as a concerned Little Monster who has survived the aftermath of my many dating mistakes in my late teens and 20s. I recently saw the disturbing pics of you and your on-again-off-again BF, Luc Carl, sucking face in a swimming pool. I hate to be the…

Money 101: An Overview Of 401(k), 403(b), And Roth IRA Retirement Accounts

If you’re anything like me, when someone brings up retirement savings, investing, or your 401(k) match at a cocktail party, your eyes immediately glaze over and all you hear is the “wonk wonk” of the adults from a Charlie Brown special. Inside my head is the flashing red light and loud voice signaling “Danger. Danger.

Beauty Test Drive: Marc Jacobs Bang Eau De Toilette Spray

It’s not every day that we test products for men here at The Frisky. But Bang is Marc Jacobs’ first masculine fragrance in almost 10 years, so I had to jump at the chance. Plus, did you see how hot Marc looked in the Bang ad? Apparently, this scent is so special that he had…

“Laguna Beach” Sparked A Crime Wave

So, apparently, Lauren Conrad, Kristin Cavallari and crew didn’t just waste countless hours of our time when we watched them on “Laguna Beach.” They also sparked a crime wave in their hometown. Two assistant professors at Occidental College were interested in the question of whether reality TV attracted delinquency to an area, and decided to…

Oak & Co. Gives Young Designers Exposure

The hardest thing about being a new designer is not so much the creativity — if you’re good, you’re good — it’s getting exposure for the awesome clothes you’re creating. Some designers with amazing wares actually struggle for years just to get their clothes in front of the right eyes. New website Oak & Co.

What Are “Carrot Pants”?

When we came across the term “carrot pants” on a Kansas-based website, we thought maybe it was just what they call harem pants out there. But no, turns out Kansas is quite up on their fashion knowledge. We didn’t know about carrot pants before. Although now that we do, we kind of wish we didn’t.

What Kind Of Shopper Are You?

It goes without saying that every single person shops for clothes differently. While I loathe purchasing anything online and would rather pick up one or two pieces every week, I have friends who order by seasons, other friends who shop on a monthly basis, and a boyfriend who needs to seriously be in the mood…

The 10 Television Guest Stars We Can’t Wait For This Fall

The end of summer is a very sad thing that I don’t even want to talk about because I can’t stand the thought of having to wait nine months before tank tops and beach naps again. But there is one silver lining: fall television. It’s when new shows launch and our faves return for another…

Dancing Swedish Cop Busts A Move

I don’t know that there’s a better argument for moving to Sweden than this. The country is so awesome that its police officers, even while on duty, feel free to bust a move in public in front of onlookers, one of whom at least was recording the show. Go, Swedish cop, go! I…

Would You Ever Wear A Vintage Bathing Suit?

My mother has a special face she displays when I show her my latest vintage finds. It says, That’s cute, but how could you ever wear someone else’s clothes? No amount of laundering is enough for her when it comes to my pre-owned finds, because it’s already soiled with the first owner’s issues. While I…

Dear Wendy: “My Boyfriend’s Moving Out. Can Our Relationship Survive?”

Wendy is on vacation, so we’ll be posting some of her more popular past Dear Wendy columns (that some of you may have missed!) to get you through the week.

I’m 28, my boyfriend is about to be 27, and we’ll be celebrating our 5 year anniversary in a few months. We’ve been living…

It’s “American Idol”-geddon!

Today, July 30, will forever be known as D-Day in “American Idol” land. I’m reeling, trying to make sense of what the heck happened in the last 24 hours that has very likely demolished my favorite guilty pleasure competition show. Can things ever be the same again? I fear not. After the jump, the demise…

Tim Gunn’s Mutiny: Asks If “Project Runway” Judges Are Smoking Crack

Last night brought the season premiere of “Project Runway,” and I tried—really tried—to stay awake through all 90 minutes of it. But while this show once seemed so fresh and original, now that it’s in its 8th season, it’s just stale. So to add an extra 30 minutes to every episode? Egads. I found myself…

Girl Talk: Love Me, Love My Hair

I was in fourth grade when my grandmother first took me to a hair salon. She drove me to her hairdresser, Betsy, a 50-year-old woman who dyed her hair pitch black, and had a head full of curls the perfect shape of large hot rollers. I squirmed as Betsy ripped out the rubber bands holding…
