I missed April Fools’ Day yesterday, so all I will say is this: I’m super pregnant, just like Lindsay Lohan. Except I’m not, because — drum roll please, and yes, there will be a reception following the service — I got my period this weekend for the first time in three years. Three years! Granted, I was on a certain pill … and I’ve since gone back on that pill, because I forgot about cramps. Life lessons, my friends. I also joined OkCupid because I’m afraid of dying alone, so yeah, all in all I had a pretty weird weekend. I’ll tell you about it another time. Over cocktails. Anyway, as you can see, we’ve got a full Frisky house for ya on this sunny (yet quite, and I mean quite, brisk) day…

I subscribe to the style theory of “all black everything.” I’m pretty religious about it most of the year, but come summer, my wardrobe tends to lighten up. (Maybe some dark grey?) My shoes, on the other hand, are nothin’ but black. Black boots, black sandals, black heels — why buy anything else? Black is classic, goes with everything, never gets dirty, and black leather shoes last for years. They’re practically an investment, but that doesn’t mean you should have to cash out over $200 for a solid pair of cool-ass black sandals. Check out these 10 pairs, and wonder why you ever thought it would be a good idea to buy something in beige suede.
Here are all of the things I know about Olga Kurylenko: she’s Russian, she’s dating Danny Huston, and she has the type of face that I would like to wear as my own. Also, she’s starring in a new movie with Tom Cruise, which I won’t be seeing. My criteria for movies is, “is Tom Cruise in this movie?” If the answer is yes, I won’t see it. Sorry, everyone who’s ever been in a movie with Tom Cruise. Including you, Olga.
But anyway, I’m almost always crying about how celebrities don’t wear nearly enough Elie Saab. I don’t get it — every single one of his dresses is to die for, and on the occasion that someone does wear Saab’s designs, they look like this. Impeccable! So: if you’re famous, have ever been famous, or may become famous, and you’re reading this, WEAR ELIE SAAB. DO IT FOR ME. [Photo: WENN]
Let’s play Two Truths and a Lie. Better yet, let’s play it with Martha Stewart! Martha will go first. Okay, so: she’s friends with Snoop Dogg, she does yoga every day, and she’s a terrible, terrible boss. Do you know which one is the lie? (It’s the last one. According to Martha, of course.) She actually is friends with Snoop Dogg! They bake brownies together. Do you know what kind of brownies? Here, let Martha tell you herself. Try not to cringe when Natalie Morales refers to the rapper/actor/icon/Lion as “the Snoop.” Who does that? [BuzzFeed]
Do you think it’s an issue that Helen Mirren has worn this same Dolce & Gabbana lily of the valley dress three times, on three separate occasions? I certainly do not. It’s a pretty much perfect frock on a pretty much perfect lady, so there you go. If the Duchess can do it, by all means… Carry on, Dame Helen, carry on.
Let’s get this out of the way: three years ago, almost to the day, I lopped off much of my midback-length hair in an ill-fated incident best summarized as Something That Should Not Have Happened. In my defense, everyone gets scissors-happy once in a while… but this was more along the lines of scissors-crazy, and I went from having a pink-dipped mermaid mane to a Kurt Cobain-inspired messy bob. It was not cute (duh, I did it), and I was not happy. Cut to today, and much of what I lost on that tragic day has been restored. It’s almost as if it never happened — except it totally did, and I will never forget it. As a result, keeping my hair long, strong, and in great condition is one of my top priorities these days. Aside from washing less frequently and deep-conditioning twice weekly like a boss, the Turbie Twist makes it ridiculously easy for me to keep my growing hair undamaged and healthy while looking ridiculous at the same time. It protects it from the wear and tear that results from rough, unceremonious towel-drying, and cuts down significantly on the time it takes hair to air dry thanks to super-absorbent cotton. All you have to do is twist your soakin’ wet hair up tight and push the whole deal through the loop. Plus, it’s an “as seen on TV” product, so that’s how you know it’s legit! [$6.99, Sally Beauty]
Psssst — if you’re only going to watch one video on the Internet today, make it this one. I don’t know who goes about their day thinking, “I’m only going to watch one video on the Internet today,” but maybe it’s you. I could probably benefit from a rule like that myself, come to think of it. Anyway! Jason Schwartzman, outstanding actor (R.I.P. “Bored to Death”), musician by way of Coconut Records, and all-around cool person teamed up with his cousin, who just so happens to be Roman Coppola, director, producer, writer, actor, son of Francis Ford Coppola, and co-conspirator of Wes Anderson (these people kill me; can you tell?) on this little video for offbeat high-style site NOWNESS (click, it’s cool!).

Ah, Kate Bosworth. Does she even act anymore? What does she do? Just walk around being super-fashionable and gorgeous, Olivia Palermo-style? I kid, I kid. No shade — I love the Bos (I just made that nickname up) and her mismatched eyes. (Also, she almost went to Princeton, so she’s probably pretty smart!) Kate has ah-mazing style, and this boyfriend coat and leather leggings combo is pure perfection. Plus, it looks super comfortable (flats!!!!), like you could wear it on your laziest day ever. I’m all for that. Keep reading »
I have a weird, deep-rooted soft spot for the Kardashian klan and all of its various … idiosyncrasies, and I do not agree with the current media fixation upon “shaming” Kim’s very pregnant body. Yes, she’s been looking like the star of the Butt and Belly Parade, but there’s a vulnerability and naiveté about Kim that makes me feel sad for her. HOWEVER. With that said. Is that … denim? Should I just close my eyes and look away? I think I should. [Photo: FameFlynet]
