This past weekend, the fashion world mourned the loss of one of its icons, Loulou de la Falaise, the inimitable model and muse to designer Yves St. Laurent and an irrepressible figure in the couture community. We’ve collected images of de la Falaise to show you what St. Laurent and so many others saw in her life and style.
This weekend, America’s most renowned artists … okay, who am I kidding? This weekend, a few of America’s most palatable pop stars, like Selena Gomez and Katy Perry, flew ‘cross the pond to meet up with their Euro brethren at the MTV Europe Music Awards. Lady Gaga shoved her crotch at the crowd, Adam Lambert stood in for my beloved Freddie Mercury during Queen’s performance (I am deeply unhappy about this), and a whole mess of people dressed like fools. There were some sartorial standouts too — click through this slideshow to see the good, the bad, and the WTF on the MTV EMAs red carpet!
In a last ditch effort to make their marriage seem like it was a real thing, Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries are seeking counseling. Sources say their union is “up in the air” after Kim flew to Minnesota to meet with Kris’ pastor, Joel Johnson. After a four-hour come-to-Jesus session (literally), they admitted that there is a lot wrong with their relationship. How brave of them, but aren’t these the kind of counseling sessions that usually take place before the wedding? Either way, I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall, if, in fact, this session actually happened. We won’t be holding our breath for a reconciliation. If Kim and Kris are representative of the rest of celebrity couples who’ve sought counseling, this is just the beginning of the end for them. Or the end of the end, considering they’ve already split.

Last week, in honor of our mission to “Get Bitchin’ In The Kitchen,” I asked you to send me your favorite recipes for a forthcoming slideshow. Well, I got so many recipes that one slideshow just ain’t gonna suffice. Instead, I’m going to post the recipes over the course of the week — and I’m still accepting more, so send ‘em (to firstname.lastname@example.org) if you got ‘em! First up, three yummy pasta recipes from readers Sarah, Allison, and Megan!
This weekend, there was a party in LA! I was not invited! Tons of pretty celebs were there wearing fancy dresses and, again, I was not invited! The party in question was the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) Art + Film Gala, which was raising money to make film a more important part of the museum’s offerings. (It’s Hollywood, they want film to be the focus of everything, amiright?!) Upon looking at the fancy dresses these famous ladies were wearing, I realize I would have had nothing to wear anyway, so I’m glad I made other plans, i.e. stayed home and made spaghetti and painted my nails. Thank you for not inviting me, fancy Hollywood event planners. I would have felt guilty saying no. Anyway, click through this slideshow to see what Reese Witherspoon, Kate Bosworth, Evan Rachel Wood, Amy Poehler, Kate Hudson, and a whole bunch of other fancy people wore instead.
Sometimes watching a good food movie is just as satisfying as the food itself. Living vicariously through the golden ticket winners in “Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory” has been my favorite dessert substitute since I was a chubby eight-year-old with a restricted sugar intake. “They get to eat all the candy they want!!” I would squeal as the lucky children ate their way through a warehouse of candy. I just couldn’t believe their good fortune. Side note: When is someone going to invent lick-able wall paper? I want it now! Click through to see more food films that satisfy our hunger.
A recent study found that only 7 percent of women love their hair, yet we spend a ton of time grooming it. But wouldn’t life just be easier if we covered up with a hat on the bad hair days? I’m not talking about a knit beanie or baseball cap. I mean a fabulous chapeau — one that will show off your style while also being chic enough to wear indoors! Here are 11 of our favorite, finger-snap-approved hats for bad hair days … or every day, really.
Remember Bonkers? Clearly Canadian? Planter’s Cheez Puffs? As much as you might love them, you can’t get them anymore. The food gods have declared these products, and the eight others on this list snack food non grata. Try as you might, you won’t be able to find these tasty (and, okay, not so tasty) treats anywhere. We’ve compiled some of our most-loved, but we want to hear what snack foods you miss the most. Tell us your gone-but-not-forgotten favorites in the comments.
Lauren Conrad wears many hats, a few of which I’d prefer she take off. (As a writer, it chaps my hide that she gets a serial book deal.) But one area I think Lauren excels in, besides masterfully wearing braids, is fashion design. I’ve liked a lot of the thing she’s done for her low-priced line for Kohl’s, but it’s her mid-priced line Paper Crown that really makes my closet ache. She just unveiled Paper Crown’s Holiday Collection and I’m totally into the crushed neutral velvet, floral prints, and champagne-colored frocks. Click through to see the full collection, in store
For as long as we can remember, we’ve lived by the philosophy that you can tell a lot about a man by his choice in footwear. But lately, we’ve been ogling men’s shoes sartorially, rather than with a love connection in mind. Even though our feet are too small for most men’s footwear, we couldn’t help but put together some of the sneakers, boots, and shoes we wish we could wear. Here are 12 shoe options for the men of The Frisky.
