We’ve had rain and snow for the last few days, which is why we’ve been remiss in photographing our outfits. I mean, you guys don’t want to see my frizzy hair or awkward attempts at styling Sorel boots, do you? But the sun is shining today (or was — it’s 6:30 and dark here now) and the cute clothes have come out to play!

Erykah Badu has long been one of my favorite neo soul artists, not to mention one of the most fashionable people, um, anywhere (putting aside that her influence may have led to then-boyfriend Common embracing crochet pants, but I digress). So it’s awesome to learn that Badu has been named the face of Givenchy’s latest ad campaign, in part because having a Black woman be the muse for such a high fashion brand, in an industry where they are generally wholly underrepresented, is a breath of fresh air. In fact, all of the female models used in Givenchy’s latest campaign are women of color. Givenchy designer Ricardo Tisschi told Style.com of the homogeniety in fashion:
“It’s 2013. Everybody’s being so cool about Instagram, about Facebook, any media — everybody’s being so open. At the end of the day, why are not so many black girls or Latin girls in shows? When you have an American president who is black! When I see this happening, it’s quite sad, I think. People can be so avant-garde, so advanced, but actually not, because people are still making differences between skin color.”
As for his selection of Badu, apparently he had the singer in mind for awhile, saying, “Erykah, she’s an icon—come on! … “She’s one of the most stylish women I’ve met in my life. She’s got such a good sense of proportion, of colors.” Truth. Click on through for just a small handful of Badu’s amazing fashion statements over the years… [Style.com]

Hey girl. Bad news. Your heavily decal-ed, excessively red-and-green, badly doodled nail art is ruining Christmas. Not to be a Scrooge, but that melty-faced Santa on your thumb might as well be a lump of coal in my stocking. I’m all for getting in the holiday spirit and if you’re headed to an Ugly Christmas Sweater Party, by all means, do your nails up to match — but don’t you dare fool yourself into thinking these 30 manicures are anything but ho-ho-ho-horrrrrible.
All this month The Frisky is serving up holiday gift guides to help you pick presents for everyone on your list. Here, we’ve got gifts for the geek in your life.
Y’all know I have a special place in my heart for the Jolie-Pitt kids. Angelina Jolie escorted 67 percent of her brood — Zahara, Shiloh and twins Vivienne and Knox — out and about in Sydney, Australia. Shi and Zahara shared big sis duties, taking turns holding Knox’s hand. Click on for more pics (because I can never just download one).
Whenever I find myself assembling a red carpet gallery for The Frisky, I’ll gaze wistfully at some floor-length formal gown worn by Jennifer Lawrence or Kerry Washington and think, I suppose I’ll never have an occasion to wear something so fancy. Like, I don’t anticipate myself ever going to the Oscars or attending some black tie gala, so a custom Armani Prive gown is probs not in my future. It’s cool, I’ve come to terms with it. What I will settle for, however, is a pair of ridiculously sparkly earrings — and so should you! Wear ‘em now to any holiday and New Year’s Eve parties, and later to add a dose of fancy bitch to your favorite everyday look. Click on for 12 pairs I’m obsessed with…
Confession: I am constantly getting Olivia Munn confused with both Olivia Wilde (same name) and Aubrey Plaza (similar face). She’s certainly not the first celeb I’ve had trouble keeping track of for whatever reason, but after some extensive Googling and looking through a ton of photos of her amazing street style outfits, I might finally have carved out a specific spot in my brain for Ms. Munn. Click through to check out some examples of her memorable fashion sense in action!
Last week, we learned the sad news that we may not be burning as many calories as we thought we were during an average sex session. And hey, burning about as many calories as a game of doubles tennis is nothing to sneeze at. But if you really want to turn your sexcapades into a bona fide (boner fide?) workout, you’re gonna have to make like Britney Jean and work, bitch. Getting the maximum burn from your sexercise session takes dedication, excellent hand-eye coordination, and a little creativity, but it can be done. Here are some moves we dreamed up for people who want to hit the bedroom instead the gym, who want to pump their hips instead of pumping iron, who want to ditch the exercise balls for actual balls, who — well, you get the idea.

It needs to be said: nail art, especially around the holidays, goes too far. Little pinky Santas and toe-thumb Rudolphs or all 10 fingers painted to look like wrapped presents, complete with glued-on bow decals. It’s too much! Can we take these down a notch and embrace nail art that’s actually, I dunno, pretty again? It’s not hard! Look, I found 34 festive, glitter-y, fun holiday manicures to inspire you.
