Yesterday, I posted a slideshow of 35 Frisky readers dressed up for Halloween (check those out after the jump) — but even more showed up in my inbox and on our Facebook page since. So, here are 10 more than were just too good not to post. First up … Little Lucille Ball! Keep reading »
Fashion begins on the runway. Once the seasonal collections are shown, the standard is set for labels everywhere, who work to emulate — but not copy — the hottest catwalk trends. The clothes we purchase from stores such as H&M, Zara, and Urban Outfitters all have one thing in common: they’re often loose interpretations of garments spotted, well, elsewhere. In much the same way, beauty also begins on the runway. Makeup trends dictate what we choose to apply to our faces season after season. It’s easy to garner your fair share of inspiration from lofty, oft unattainable looks. Though runway beauty is, generally, stunningly theatrical, you can still recreate it in daily life with an arsenal of products and a light hand. After the jump, some of the top runway faces from Autumn/Winter ’11 (which debuted nearly eleven months ago — fashion also predicts the future!) and how to get similar looks on your own.
Some weeks in the blogging world are known as “slow news weeks.” Those are weeks devoid of pregnancy announcements, sex scandals, and A-list divorces. And there are other weeks when tabloid stories are breaking like waves in a hurricane. Yesterday, we enjoyed a double story break with the announcement of the end of Kim Kardashian’s 72-day marriage to Kris Humphries and Jessica Simpson’s “mummy” confirmation. When big stories break, it’s always strategic. Whenever a celebrity wants to hide something, they make an official statement after the weeklies have dropped. If they’re vying for media attention and blog love, they go public just in time for the story to make the cover of the upcoming issue. So it’s a gain a week, lose a week principle. Keep reading »
I don’t know about you, but I feel like Halloween always leaves something to be desired. Every year, it’s preceded by the usual hype, promising a debaucherous night for all involved. But, um, I find that it’s never really that good. I’m always glad when Halloween is over, and it makes me especially happy that it is immediately followed by Dia de los Muertos. Even though I’m American with no Latin or Mexican blood to speak of, the ghoulish festivity of Day of the Dead, celebrated November 1st and 2nd, appeals to me far more than any old Halloween.

Meet reader Kara. She scares the s**t out of me. She dressed up as Regan from “The Exorcist” for Halloween this year and will be haunting my nightmares for the foreseeable future. Thanks, Kara. Please don’t drag me to hell.
Kara is not the only Frisky reader to send in their costume photos, in fact, over 30 of you responded to our callout, officially making me feel like the biggest sour puss ever for not dressing up this year. I’ve learned my lesson. We’ve got a Fraggle! Tributes to the Day of the Dead! Dexter Morgan and a hapless victim! Joan Holloway! A Pan-Am Stewardess! And many, many, many more! Happy Belated Halloween — and looking forward to seeing what you wear next year!
Did you get dressed up for Halloween this year? We want to see! Email your Halloween pics to email@example.com OR post them to The Frisky’s Facebook page – we’ll put together a slideshow of reader Halloween pics to appear on the site later today or early tomorrow. Above, a slideshow of a bunch of Frisky reader Halloween costumes from last year, and after the jump, even more. So don’t forget to send us a photo of your costume (firstname.lastname@example.org) so you can be included in this year’s slideshow! Keep reading »
I definitely don’t consider myself an expert on marriage, but by virtue of being a semi-expert on celebrity marriages — with an emphasis in “rumors surrounding the cause of their demise” — I have learned some valuable lessons about matrimony. For example, part of figuring out your compatibility in the long-term with your potential spouse requires asking a few simple but crucial questions. Questions these seven celeb brides failed to ask. Don’t make the same mistake!
Happy Halloween! Seriously, I cannot believe Halloween is not over yet. That explains why none of us are dressed up as anything other than our freezing selves today (the office heat has been off). Click on to see what we’re wearing instead of Halloween costumes…
Well, the love story of Kim Kardashian and, uh, that one guy whose name we barely bothered to remember, has come to a conclusion. Kardashian is filing for divorce, allegedly because her basketball playing husband, Kris Humphries, wanted to live in Minnesota, while she, of course, cannot imagine leaving the paparazzi-filled streets of Hollywood. Kardashian released a statement, saying:
After careful consideration, I have decided to end my marriage. I hope everyone understands this was not an easy decision. I had hoped this marriage was forever, but sometimes things don’t work out as planned. We remain friends and wish each other the best.
Indeed, it probably wasn’t in the plan to end their marriage quite this soon, but Kim luckily has nearly $18 million in crisp dollar bills she made off the wedding to mop up her tears. (Unless, of course, she actually decides to follow any of our suggestions and donates her bounty to a good cause.)
Married for only 72 days, Kim’s (second!) marriage joins a long line of short celeb marriages. Keep clicking to see some of the other speedy celebrity marriages that met an early demise.

Horror movies might seem like the obvious choice for a night in with your date on Halloween, the scariness leading to inevitable cuddling. Yet the cannon of less terrifying spooky flicks can give you more helpful romance advice than your average self-help book. And really, do you want to watch a bunch of movies that teach you that after you have sex you’ll get chopped up by an ax murderer? Or one that shows you that even after a few indiscretions, ranging from marrying another to sleeping with a manic transsexual, your partner will be all too happy take you back, or at least join you in a water orgy? That’s the kind of lesson I want to learn as I slowly slip into a candy coma. Keep reading »
