The British — they have a reputation for being so refined and proper. But look, these people totally wild out. Take the Royal Ascot — a five-day celebration of British royalty and horseracing. The Queen and a bunch of members of the royal family show up, and there’s lots of white gloves and fancy dresses. But the biggest star of the day? The wackadoodle hats that women wear to the festivities — particularly on Ladies’ Day. We’ve culled a selection of some of the crazier headwear — including a woman wearing a soccer field as a hat, really — for your perusal. Enjoy!

Okay, so sometimes you’re having a bad day, and you just really want to buy something. Nine times out of 10, my impulse can be sated with a shirt at H&M or a new pair of tights from American Apparel. But occasionally, I really want to buy something classy, nice and designer. And that’s when I go to the Creatures of Comfort website. They carry tons of my favorite designers — like Isabel Marant, Rachel Comey and Karen Walker – along with their own house line. Sadly, much of their stuff is astronomically out of my price range, but I have managed to find nine awesome pieces, from keychains to trousers, that one could actually purchase from their fantastic collection, for under $100 bucks.

I don’t know about the rest of the world — or the rest of the country, for that matter — but it’s depressingly hot at my latitude and longitude. Don’t get me wrong, I love the warm weather and sunshine, but I also like to look fairly presentable, and that is not happening right now. This city is a sauna, and there is no hope for me. Because a hot, flushed face is basically my main accessory right now, I’m making a conscious effort to keep refreshing facial mists at my disposal. Though one in the bag will never have quite the same cooling effect as one that’s been chilling in the fridge all day, a burst of a skin-soothing, lightly fragranced water is enough to get my simmering brain, if not my appearance (I’m beyond help), back on track. Here are 10 spritzes (some purse-sized, others larger) that will bring you back to life when the heat is dragging you down.
We don’t discriminate here at The Frisky. We celebrate the beauty of all sorts of men … tall, short, fat, thin, bald, long-haired, hoofed, or flippered. Hey, as long as he treats me well, who cares if he only has one leg, I mean fin. In honor of the Coney Island Mermaid Parade this weekend, I waded and splashed my way to the depths of the internet to find the hottest men for whom swimming is the primary form of transportation. Like this sea hunk. This is exactly what Finnick Odair of “The Hunger Games” looks like my imagination. I wouldn’t mind taking a dip with him. Click through for some more wet n’ wild merman sexiness.
Told you I would be egalitarian about this whole thing. Earlier this week, I asked if you could identify your favorite female celebs … from behind. Now it’s the boys’ turn — can you guess which famous dude is pictured by just checking out his tush?
It is nearly 100 degrees in New York City today. Before I walked out the door, I made a promise to myself that I wouldn’t laugh at anyone with boob or butt sweat marks on their clothes. I also hoped everyone else would do the same, as chances were good I would be sporting both by the end of the day. Click on to see what we’re wearing on this steamy day…
Kimono jackets are the perfect lightweight layer for summer, and their flowy shape makes them a super flattering option for all body types. We love how effortlessly chic they look when paired with jeans and a simple ribbed tank, but you can also dress them up for work or an evening out. Want in on this versatile trend? Here are eight kimono jackets we love–starting at just $14! Click through to check ‘em out…
Kate Upton’s back! And this time she’s on a GQ cover. And, shocker, she’s wearing a bikini and sucking on a Firecracker. Original? Not really. Refreshing on a 100-degree day? Yes. But it was even more refreshing for the people hanging out on the Santa Monica Pier during Kate’s photo shoot. “For the GQ shoot, we were on that ride where the seat spins while the actual ride is spinning … And all of a sudden the whole entire top falls off! I’m holding myself, laughing, turning bright red, but a lot of people are watching, so they kicked us out of the Santa Monica Pier—it was so embarrassing,” Upton confessed. See? She has work issues just like the rest of us. “It’s like any job,” she said. “You find your strengths and play them up.” Well, that is something she does extremely well. Let’s cool off, shall we? Here are some other famous ladies sucking on popsicles. [GQ]
When I was 14 years old, my love for the band Pearl Jam was so great, I used to make my mom drive by a house in our neighborhood every day because I had somehow concluded, via extensive research online using our crappy dial-up modem, that Eddie Vedder had lived there, like, 15 years before. I also made a paper mache trash can with Stone Gossard’s face on (he’s the band’s guitarist). In short, I get the level of fandom that MileyCyrusCarlx feels for his favorite singer, Miley Cyrus (duh). I’m sure that if I had been of legal age in 1993, I would have gotten 15 Pearl Jam tattoos. Permanently inking your love for someone on your person is a sign of loyalty, for sure, but 15 tattoos in homage? I’m in awe. I can only dream of being loved by someone with such devotion. I wonder if MCCx (that’s my nickname for him) would settle for little ol’ me? I don’t think my visage is as tattoo-worthy, and I can’t sing a note, but I’m sweet and make a mean roast chicken.
