One of the perks of being the editor of The Frisky is that when an important day arrives, like, say, Ryan Gosling‘s 31st birthday, it’s my prerogative to devote an entire slideshow to singing his praises. Hence, 10 photos of my future husband looking breathtakingly hot accompanied by 31 reasons why I am glad he was born 31 years ago. You’re welcome, fellow psychotic Ryan Gosling devotees.
If there’s one place for a celebrity lady to step up her game, it’s on the red carpet. Whenever it’s rolled out, famous faces come out of the woodwork (do they exist when they’re not making public appearances? Important life questions) to show off what they’ve got. Classic, bizarre, avant garde — as we’ve seen, it’s all fair in
love dresses and war. But sometimes, even those who make a million a movie step out of line (and that is a fine line indeed!) and come off looking, well, cheap.
Ah, faux-fur vests. They provide an in-yo-face punch, adding considerable girth, shag and fluff that encapsulate your figure in a BAMF (that’s Bad Ass Mother F**ker) way. Bonus points for their ability to make an outfit while still treading easily between day and night. It’s time to cast your iPhone’s Polaroid photo app aside and truly channel your retro glam-rock essence — dive headfirst into our round-up of the best in faux-fur vests.
Happy 11/11/11! Did you make a wish at 11:11 a.m.? I forgot, but I am going to make a wish at 11:11 p.m. (I don’t believe in military time!). I can’t tell you what it is because I don’t want to jinx it, but here are the letters to the three words, all mixed up: armyr ynar slognig. Click on to see what we’re wearing today!
Today is 11/11/11, which is Veteran’s Day (currently being commemorated in a parade walking past The Frisky offices!), but it’s also Corduroy Appreciation Day. Every year, Corduroy Appreciation Day coincides with 11/11, as the date’s verticality pleasantly resembles the fabric’s pattern. But as the epic 11/11/11 only falls once every 100 years, so in honor of this even-more-special celebration, we’ve selected several fine corduroy pieces, designed to set your fine corduroy heart aflutter, on this magical, mystical day.
The Golden Globes? Yawn. The Emmys? Meh. The Academy Awards? Ugh, whatevs. The VMAs? Amateurs, all of the them! I have a new favorite award show and it’s the Latin Grammy Awards. Oh, I didn’t actually watch them. I just perused the red carpet fashions and had my mind blown. I must admit I didn’t know much about many of these singers/musicians/stars, but I am left wanting to know more. Way more. Especially about Alejandra Guzman, who I am officially convinced must be the Latin American hybrid of Courtney Stodden and Paz de la Huerta. Anyway, click onward to see some amazing sartorial displays.
I don’t know about you, but I find celebrity wax figures slightly creepy. The shiny skin, the vacant eyes, the stiff poses … a little unnerving. With the exception of Kate Winslet’s likeness, which was unveiled this week at Madame Tussauds in London. Her wax self looks practically perfect in every way in her 2011 Emmy look, just like her real self did. She joins the ranks of celebs to get waxed and put on display at museums around the world for fans to gawk at. Click on through to see more celebrity wax jobs. [Celebitchy]
It’s been a couple days — did you miss knowing what we were wearing? No worries … we’re back. And I am wearing socks with mustaches on them.
So, let’s talk about the fashions at the Country Music Awards. Everyone thinks they should get a special dispensation because it’s the Country Music Awards and Nashville is where sparkle glitter was invented or something, but I say no! Taylor Swift still manages to look classy! So can you Miranda Lambert! And everybody else! Take a look at how they all fared.
The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. Who comes up with this stuff? And on what kind of drugs? And are they sharing those drugs? Because it’s clear that there’s something rather cuckoo clocks about the whole affair. And even though there’s tons of boobs and bare bums, it doesn’t even seem that sexy — just campy and silly. You might call it the Snookification of sexy: More Benny Hill than bad rap video.
In any case, there were plenty of Vicky Secret supermodels on the catwalk last night, including a ridiculously in-shape post-baby Miranda Kerr (jaysus that woman!), a liquid-dieting Adriana Lima and a be-caped Candice Swanepoel. Check out all the cheeky, ridonkulous hilarity in our slideshow.
