Eco-friendly swimwear — bet you didn’t even know that was a “thing.” And yet! Swimwear designers are smartly making suits that reflect the natural surroundings in which the suits are made to be worn. The following suits are made mostly from bamboo or organic cotton fabrics, are easy to wear and look good, too. Check ‘em out after the jump!
Damn you, Helen Mirren, for looking so fine. Mirren proves that wearing leopard-print after 50 doesn’t have to look like some tickety-tackity cougartown tragedy. Here she is at the London premiere of “Arthur” in an animal-print Dolce & Gabbana gown and leather jacket, and it works. How you do sexy so well, lady? [W.E.R.Q] Keep reading »
I’m not into polishes that sparkle and shine. My nails are super short (sorry, I’m terrible and I bite ‘em), so I want a polish that minimizes, rather than emphasizes, the damage I’ve done. Enter designer Jason Wu’s collaboration with CND nail polish. He’s created four matte-ish colors ranging from a shocking glam red to a muted neutral purple (it’s called Brigitte, of course!). When I applied, the nail polish dried flattish, but had a neat dimensionality that made it appear unique in different lights. When you want polish that lets you shine, Wu’s where it’s at.

The tulle, the ruffles, the lace and silk … prom dresses, and the impending prom night, are supposed to be one of the fondest memories of high school. I never tripped on prom much — mostly because I was dating a 24-year-old during senior prom time and bringing him to the school dance seemed like it might involve incurring statutory rape charges. But c’est la vie! You guys delivered big when it came to prom style. After the jump, check out our spectacular collection of Frisky reader prom pics!
“Meek’s Cutoff” stars Michelle Williams as a hardbitten pioneer woman trying to make her way across the prairie with a band of pioneers, and the clothing worn in the film reflects the settlers’ hardscrabble lives. We’ve taken Michelle and “Meek’s Cutoff” as inspiration for our summer wardrobe and picked six perfect prairie dresses. (And we won’t tell if you skip the bonnet.) Check ‘em out after the jump!

On tonight’s episode of “All On the Line,” Elle Creative Director Joe Zee helps out Gemma Kahng. Kahng was part of the early ’90s power suit revolution, but quickly made a slew of bad business decisions and burned through all her money. Will Zee be able to get Kahng back on track? Or will she walk away from it all? Check out “All On the Line” tonight to find out!
Everyone seems to be losing their minds over the impending Prince William/Kate Middleton nuptials, but I can’t really be bothered. Kate is a pretty girl, but she doesn’t excite the way Princess Diana did. Or at least that’s my prerogative. Perhaps nothing could compare to the hoopla surrounding Diana, and sure, style isn’t a zero sum game, but check out these side-by-side photos of Kate and Diana and tell us what you think. Is Kate great? Or does Diana reign supreme?
I realize I’m not the most reliable when it comes to dating guys who are totally on the up-and-up. But I draw the line at hardcore pro-lifers. I refuse to date a guy who doesn’t believe in a woman’s right to choose because I essentially view that as someone who believes women are too stupid to make decisions for themselves. So when Crushable’s very linkbait-y list of 25 crushworthy guys under 25 included Mr. Tim Tebow, I had to laugh. Sure, Mr. Tebow has a handsome enough mug, if you’re into broad shouldered football players. But Tebow has one major problem in my book: he’s openly and loudly very anti-choice, to the tune of taking out an ad during the Super Bowl in order to share his pro-life views with the world. Why, for the love of Ryan Gosling, would a major woman’s website feel the need to laud a man like that? I mean, after all, it’s not like a woman’s right to choose has been in any way compromised this year or anything. Luckily, their other 24 picks are decidedly less lame. [Crushable] Keep reading »
Who can know what motivates our unconscious desires? I mean, even supermodel Kate Moss has freaky-deaky dreams, according to fashion line Basement. In this ad for the Chilean fashion company, Moss seduces a giant bunny man and wakes up surrounded by hundreds of tiny white rabbits. As you do. [Stylelist] Keep reading »
