We did something a li’l different this week at The Frisky— every day, five of our editors and bloggers took pictures of their outfits and posted them online for y’all to see! Did you see them all?
Luckily, our fab stylin’s brought some levity to a long, hard week, what with DJ AM passing away too soon and 29-year-old Jaycee Dugard discovered living with Phil Garrido, a total whackjob, 18 years after she was abducted. Keep reading »
OK, “Project Runway,” we get it. Viewers own TiVos and fast-forward through commercials, so advertisers want products plugged in the show instead. We understand. But last night’s “Project Runway” went too far! Designers have always sent their models to the L’Oreal hair and makeup room and the Garnier hair salon and that’s fine. But we never had the name of the products shoved down our throats quite like this before. “Project Runway” titled the task of creating a beach look for surfer girls the “Garnier Challenge” and a Garnier hairdresser told the designers how important hair will be to complete their look on the runway. Tim Gunn, no doubt rolling his eyes inside, mentioned several times how the models needed to head to the Garnier hair studio, where the Garnier hairdresser got more screen time and showed all of Garnier’s green products in the background. Then the Garnier hairdresser made a comment before a couple commercial breaks, which led with Garnier products. I had to stop myself from shrieking at the screen, “I buy Garnier shampoo, conditioner, and frizz-ease, OK?! I swear! Leave me alone!” Seriously, “Project Runway,” don’t do that s**t again. Or at least try to slip product placement in and trick us. Keep reading »
Don’t forget! Tonight at 10 pm EST we’ll be liveblogging the latest episode of “Project Runway.” Will another innovative designer go home or will Heidi and Co. finally give someone boring the boot? Keep reading »
Whoa, three out of five kids in this family are albino! I am so happy they live in Brazil so they don’t get a reality show. [Guanabee] Keep reading »
I love killing some time at work with (“some”) online shopping as much as the next girl, but I’m getting serious mouse-click cramps after paging through all the goodies on Bluefly. Then my dude, of all people, told me about Shop It To Me, a free email service that sends you a daily notice summarizing all the sales on your favorite clothing brands which are in your size. You choose however many brands you are interested in from a list of both pricey and less-expensive designers, ranging from Urban Outfitters to Gucci. It rocks: All the markdowns on Anna Sui, Shoshanna, Diane von Furstenberg, Ali Ro, and my other faves come right to my inbox and I don’t have to click half a dozen buttons to see if those fabulous shoes I’m looking at come in a size 9 1/2. (Only problem is, it absolutely kills me to see all these super-cute dresses on sale that I still can barely afford.) Shop It To Me may be a fashion timesuck, but at least I’m not getting arm cramps anymore. [Shop It To Me] Keep reading »
” Is Pete in love with Peggy? How in love with her is he? Why is he in love with her? Is it really just his ego? I mean, how many times have you been in love with a woman until she loves you back? And then you realize it had nothing to do with her. Or a woman cheats on you and you hate her for decades and then you realize, it’s just my ego. I just couldn’t handle that she, like, wanted someone else—it had nothing to even do with this woman. And I think that’s the kind of grey area that these characters get to live in and that we get to portray—you say these long moments of silence.”
—Vincent Kartheiser, who plays Pete Campbell on “Mad Men,” talks to Vanity Fair, about why Pete’s got a thing for Peggy. But what we really wanted to know is where he learned to dance the Charleston. Keep reading »
I lived a lot during my college years, which is a tactful way to say I fooled around all over the place. But I don’t regret much. I feel like I “sowed my wild oats” when I had tons of guys around me all the time, so when I focused on my career after college, I didn’t feel like I was missing out on anything. I’m so glad it wasn’t like high school, where I mostly felt trapped, like I was missing out on everything.
It was so freaking refreshing to shed the image I had at my high school in Connecticut—bookish, serious, a little strange—and show new people all the other parts of my personality without all that pressure from the kids who’d pegged me a certain way forever. High school was all about the preppy boys who played lacrosse and wore Abercrombie + Fitch, but I knew out there in the rest of the world were boys who’d see me as more than just a nerd!
Whether you’re marooned in Bumblef**k, Iowa, for the next four years, or you’re a suburban girl in the big city like I was, it’s important for you the sample all kinds of guys the same way you would the course menu of your “formal” education. You’ll be paying off college loans to Sallie Mae for the next two decades, so you may as well look back on that time fondly!

Inevitable, right? Stephenie Meyer, the Twilight scribe, designed three tee shirts and skateboards, based on her first novel, The Host , for Hobo Skate Company. (Who knew she was a sk8er gurl?) Generally, we’re so over celeb/model/everyone-and-their-dog clothing designers doing their own lines, but at least Meyer is using her fame for good, not evil, by teaming up with a company that’ll donate some of the proceeds to charity. Hobo Skate Company will give a portion of their sales of the $25 tees and $50 boards to the Hobo Foundation (Wait, wtf is up with that name!?–Editor] to support homeless families. Honestly, they’re underwhelming—the three designs are “X-Ray,” “The Cave,” and “Body & Soul.” We think she should stick to writing vampire erotica light, but tweeny Twilight obsessives will probably love anything Meyer does. And, hey, at least it’s not a handbag line. [MTV] Keep reading »
