If you’re a celeb or model posing topless on the cover of a “respectable” magazine, you’ve got to find a way to cover the naughty bits. Behold, one of the more popular magazine cover poses — the breast cupping. It’s a pose that says, “I’m topless! But you still can’t see my nipples! Mysterious.” Kathy Griffin had Jesse Tyler Ferguson do the honors on the cover of the latest issue of Out Magazine. Of course, she is paying homage to Janet Jackson’s 1983 cover or Rolling Stone. Here are 12 more celebs who’ve done the pose proud. [ONTD]
We’ve already discussed how there are too few women writing for TV and movies, and how that makes it challenging to find worthwhile women to watch. Even when there are women on television, they’re often the kind of cloying and annoying characters that make too many compromises, or are possessed with stereotypical flaws that allow them to be palatable to viewers at home (Liz Lemon, I’m looking at you). Or worse, they serve as simply foils or disposable love interests for the show’s male protagonists.
So it’s refreshing when there’s actually a smart, well-written, complex female character on a show. Here are 11 of our favorites (plus an honorable mention). But listen, we can’t watch all the TV (we’ve tried, trust us, we’ve tried). So we’re looking to you to tell us what lady characters don’t make you want to wretch. Tell us in the comments.
This just in: Jennifer Lopez may have found love (or a rebound) … from behind. She is rumored to be dating her much younger backup dancer, Casper Smart. Get it, girl! It wouldn’t be the first time the former Fly Girl fell for a guy with funky moves. She was briefly married to Cris Judd in 2001, also her backup dancer. It’s kind of the perfect dating scenario for a newly single, female performer like Jennifer. Pick a man who lives on your tour bus and gets paid to look at you shaking your butt and watch a romance blossom. Click through to see other famous ladies who’ve dirty danced with their backup men.

You know what we could use a little reader feedback on? Poses. I know looking at our outfits every day is terribly interesting on its own, but we’d like to kick it up a notch by making our poses more entertaining. Not all of us are like Ami, for whom posing wacky comes naturally. So, if you could play Tyra for a day and direct our daily outfit photo shoot, how would you like us to pose? (Naked and/or in a gigantic Greek salad are not viable options, FYI.)
Every season, there are a few It Bags that get everyone drooling. Few are actually able to purchase the bag, but most just put it on a mental wish list. But we’ve discovered a way that anyone can have an It Bag without spending a few paychecks. We’ve found seven bags inspired by this season’s It Bags (not knock-offs!), proving that you don’t have to spend a lot to get a chic and on-trend or classic bag.
This past weekend, celebs turned out in droves to honor … a performance artist? Yep, you read that right; instead of the usual self-congratulatory Hollywood crap, stars convened at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles to honor Serbian performance artist Marina Abramovic. Abramovic, along with Debbie Harry, performed at the event, and there was plenty of good, bad and totally out-there fashions (we’re looking at you, Jeremy Scott). Click through to see what we mean.
Colorblocking is a huge trend right now, and for good reason: it’s the perfect antidote to dark winter days. Ready to try it yourself?

Whether you want to dive into a rainbow outfit or just add some color to your winter wardrobe, we’ve rounded up some bright basics to help you get started. Click through to check ‘em out…
“Immortals” hit theaters today, and in addition to excess male eye-candy and a lackluster plotline, we get to see Freida Pinto’s booty in a steamy scene with Henry Cavill … or at least what appears to be her booty. “It was a butt double. I’m relieved I don’t have to deal with that issue,” she told E! Online. [Just Jared]
Pinto is not alone, be it by choice of morals or vanity, famous stars have opted for body doubles in nude scenes for years. Find out which glorified forms aren’t as authentic as they appear to be.
There are three reasons we reach for knee-high boots when the temperature dips. First, they help keep legs warm. Second, knee-high boots are like the universal shoe, going with pants, skirts, dresses, and shorts. And third, they’re hella chic and sophisticated! Here are 12 of our favorite pairs…
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.
