Liz Lemon, Style Icon

crave 30rock-tee

“30 Rock”‘s Liz Lemon isn’t a lady most of us take our sartorial cues from. But her witty one-liners? That’s another matter. You can broadcast love for Liz with this cute powder blue tee from the NBC Store, emblazoned with Liz’s famous phrase “I want to go to there.” And if that’s not your favorite Liz-ism, they’ve got “What the what!” and “Blurgh!” tees as well. Did anyone else realize there was the proper spelling of “blurgh”?   [$26, NBC Store]

“Feminism is dead in the world. It comes from another time. I’m a feminist. I want to fight, but I don’t see many people with this desire to fight for something. Women don’t help each other, especially in fashion. I know Miuccia [Prada] … but that’s it. Nobody else.”

– Oh look. Commentary from noted gender studies scholar Donatella Versace, who allegedly said she did not want her line for H&M photographed on “real women” for a New York Daily News promotional feature instead of professional — and likely thinner — models. That may be a more business-savvy viewpoint to take, but not such a feminist one.  (And make an effort to look a little bit less like Victoria Gotti, because I seriously cannot tell them apart.) [Telegraph UK]

Erica Watson on Standup In Stilettos
Watch "Standup In Stilettos" This Saturday!

Get real, girl, you are not going be able to get those opening weekend tickets for “Magic Mike.” Instead, park your butt on the couch this Saturday night at 10/9c for “StandUp In Stilettos.”  That’s the night that friend-0f-The-Frisky Erica Watson — who was in “Precious” a few years ago and will be in “The Bitter Pill” with Rooney Mara and Jude Law in 2013 — perform. The other performers are Paula Bel (from season seven of “Last Comic Standing”) and Felicia Michaels (winner of American Comedy Awards for Funniest Female).  I promise, they will be only slightly less entertaining than Channing Tatum on the pole. [YouTube]
