We were saddened to hear that famed butter sculptor Norma “Duffy” Lyon died over the weekend at the buttery old age of 81. She first came to attention in the butter-sculpting world in 1959, when she made a life-size cow out of dairy products. For more than 50 years, Norma dazzled the world with her artwork and her contributions to the butter-sculpting world will be missed. Check out some of her creations after the jump.
Marketing is all about selling sex, sure. But this Wrangler ad, for their new skinnier-than-skinny jeans line, The Strangler, has a major boner. No. Really, like, it prominently features a guy’s junk. Watch and enjoy. Keep reading »
Skittles aren’t the only way you can taste the rainbow — there’s also via the power of celebrity. These celebrity ladies really believe in the matchy-matchy thing, so much so that they’ve gone as far as making sure their hair matches their garments. Now that’s dedication.
Over the weekend, whilst laying out at the beach, Amelia and I were looking at a fashion magazine with a spread on dressing for your body type — you know, like chicks do during the summer. But, striving to be “different,” the mag had chosen the dumbest new names for the featured figures. You could be a dewdrop! Or a flute! What did that even mean??? We thought it would be more appropriate to name our body types based on some of our favorite snack foods instead. So without further ado, “The Frisky Guide To Dressing For Your Body Type,” be it cheese puff, sundae, soda bottle, or lollipop. Feel like your body type isn’t represented? No worries — we’re planning a part two, so please tell us any body types we’re missing in the comments! (Feel free to call ‘em what you want…)
Apparently, nobody ever told “Transformers” star Shia LaBeouf (whose name I continue to never know how to spell) that it was ungentlemanly to kiss and tell, because dude straight up told the world that he hooked up with costar Megan Fox while they were filming the movie. In a new interview with Details, LaBeouf says it’s understandable because, “Look, you’re on the set for six months, with someone who’s rooting to be attracted to you, and you’re rooting to be attracted to them.” He goes on to say that “the time I spent with Megan was our own thing, and I think you can see the chemistry onscreen.” Yes, all that chemistry in the MIchael Bay explosion-a-thon “Transformers.”
And then there’s this, from the Details interview… Keep reading »
Cast of Vices’ ‘Corner Store’ Leather Shopper takes the plastic “thank you” bag way uptown. This bag is, if you will, the high class hooker version of a plastic bag. And as you might imagine, Cast of Vices bags are, of course, more expensive then your typical corner store bag–they run between $178-$218 each. I’ll take a cloth tote, instead, thanks. [$178-$218, Cast of Vices] Keep reading »
Yesterday, we you that Jennifer Aniston got her first tattoo — in memory of her dog Norman, who passed away at age 15. That go us thinking about other celebs who’ve gone under the tattoo gun. Sure, there are a lot of tattoo catastrophes out there, but there are a few good ones that we wouldn’t mind getting inked ourselves. Check out some of our favorites after the jump, and tell us what you think of ‘em in the comments!
Hailee Steinfeld is 14 years old. She starred in “True Grit” and she’s also now the face of Miu Miu’s newest series of ads. That’s great, I suppose, but SERIOUSLY WHY WHY WHY can’t we get some grown ass women starring in fashion ads? Style blog Fashionista lauds the campaign for its minimal use of makeup and Photoshopping. Well, you know, when you’re dealing with practically prepubescent skin, you’re not going to have that many problems, now are you? What’s next? Second grade Prada models? Toddler Thierry Mugler campaigns (somewhere in a marketing meeting someone is pitching this right now)? Miu Miu and the rest, start showing your clothes on real women — don’t condescend to us with teens, please. Keep reading »
