I love Fashion Week, and I love runway show beauty, but not all of it is accessible. It’s not unusual for the makeup at some shows (see: red eyes at 3.1 Phillip Lim) to be utterly ill-advised when taken out of context. I believe that beauty is incredibly personal, and for that reason “runway beauty trends” are kind of moot: as beauty editor Cat Marnell at xoJane put it in her beautifully introspective piece on Fashion Week, “don’t you already sort of know what looks good on you?” Models, who look good in anything, including red eyeliner, whose faces are painted in a manner that complements the focal point, the clothes, should not dictate what makeup you decide to wear. You know what you like: stick to it. Sometimes, though, just as we scurry to replicate a red carpet makeup look we find covetable, and think would look good on us, there’s beauty on the runway that can work for you. If dark, dramatic eyes with a rebellious, middle-finger flair are your trademark, here are three tutorials for you to try.
Perhaps it’s my loyalty to Princess Buttercup (from “The Princess Bride”), but I shook my fists and cried “inconceivable!” every time there were rumors that Sean Penn was running around on Robin Wright, his wife of 13 years. When the two finally split in 2010, Penn took up with a string of models, finally dating much younger Scarlett Johansson for a bit. Ugh, how typical, I thought. So it pleases me greatly to see Robin, 45, finally get some love of her own — and from a youthful source as well! She’s apparently dating her “Rampart” co-star Ben Foster — an ex of Kirsten Dunst — who is 14 years younger at 31. [Just Jared]
Since the term cougar has gotten super old, we rounded up 11 other celebrity reverse May/December romances, where women like their men young, or in some cases, downright adolescent.
When approximately 70 percent of the Man Panelists cited “The Fifth Element” in our recent Valentine’s Day Man Panel, Amelia asked me what the deal was. “I have never even seen that movie,” she said, “but it must be a dude requirement.” Growing up with three brothers, I knew that it is in fact a dude requirement, and this got me thinking about other movies men obsess about. I surveyed my guy friends to flesh out a top 10 list and asked them to explain the appeal of each film. And now, without further ado, here’s our field guide to guy movies…
So, I don’t know about you, but I love watching the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. Somehow it’s very calming, right?

Just another Monday at The Frisky’s offices. You know, I got some lube in the mail, there’s a big bag of gumballs and we’ve eaten half of them, and, oh yeah, Ronnie from “Jersey Shore” was just here. Not to see us — to do an interview with another site in our office. But we forced him into photobombing a few of our photos. Without his knowledge. Click on to see what we’re wearing today!
Yeah, I know. I think it’s kind of annoying that the British Academy Of Something-Something-Something Awards happen the same weekend as the Grammy Awards, but the Brits are defiant than way. Luckily, the BAFTAs don’t pull the same crowd so the rich and famous were not forced to choose which event they would dress up for. Unlike the Grammys, the BAFTAs was a Red Riding Hood- and Pope-free zone and, for the most part, was a classy affair. Click on to see who looked hot, who looked, uh, not, and who put me to sleep faster than “The Iron Lady.”
