Believe it or not, this stately gentleman is actually Glenn Close. This photo is from her new film, “Albert Nobbs,” the story of an Englishwoman in the 1800s who dressed as a man to get a job as a butler. She’s been working on making this passion project a reality for the last 10 years. Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Mia Wasikowska and Aaron Johnson also star. Sounds like an all-star cast and by the looks of the trailer (check it out here) the film looks to be worthy of their talent. [Hollywood Reporter]

TGIF! Wait, it is Friday, right? Phew, okay. Just checking. Today, by way of introduction to “What Are We Wearing Today” (because I run out of witty things to say), I would like to give you a tiny glimpse into what it’s like to work at The Frisky. This afternoon, we have done internet searches on the following topics: “vaginal pain” (do not look up on Google images unless you want to barf), “how long to boil corn,” and “sexy wolf costume.” An interesting day all around. Click onward to see what we’re wearing today!
Big news for Nicki Minaj fans (aren’t we all?): the hip-hop starlet has scored the cover of her first “serious” fashion magazine, appearing in the November issue of W. Artist Francesco Vezzoli transformed the photos, as has become his style, so that Minaj embodied that of “a powdered 18th-century courtesan.” The photos are striking, a little strange, and certainly memorable. What do you think? [Celebuzz]
Since some of us dole out up to $100 (or more) on our Halloween looks, it would be nice to give certain items a second wear. All of you sexy vampires, slightly skanky Snow Whites, and pirate wenches know your corsets, garters and fishnets can be moved to your goodie drawer — but does it have to end there? We think not! Check out our roundup of Halloween accessories that you can rock year-round.
We were more than a little surprised to hear that former Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst — he who, at one time, so craved “the nookie” — would be getting his own sitcom. In it, he’ll be starring as a variation on Fred Durst — a meta-Durstian meditation on fame, celebrity and the vagaries of shopping at the Journeys at the Grove Mall when you’re over 35.
But Durst is hardly the only rocker to switch modes from stage antics to canned laughter. Check out our round up of other musicians who’ve made the move to the sitcom world.
This week we’ve been rounding up our favorite hot messes and telling you how to get their look for Halloween. This particular category would not be complete with out the original mess, Courtney Love. The nice thing about Courtney is that she has so many iconically messy moments to choose from. One that will always hold a special place in my heart is the night that she decided to Tweet a series of photos of herself in bed with her pet turtle. Absolutely brilliant. Click through to see how to get Courtney’s look and some other ideas if you want to be a hot mess this Halloween.
Tyra Banks (with the help of Kristin Cavallari‘s butt) may have coined the term “booty tooch” to denote an over-exaggerated arch of the lower back to accentuate the posterior, but it’s hardly a new move. Watch out “America’s Next Top Model” hopefuls, because celebs have been tooching their booties, like, forever, they just didn’t know it had a name. Click through to check out some sexy celebrity booties being tooched.
Pregnancy is a miracle unto itself. So when you hear about a woman claiming to have gotten pregnant from a character in a 3-D porno film, you can’t help but have your mind blown. Is this the immaculate conception of the 21st Century or the world’s most creative excuse for cheating? You decide. Click through to see more of the craziest pregnancy stories. Some real, some not, all insane. [Buzzfeed]
No woman in this day and age is exempt from the overwhelming pressure to be whippet thin. Most popular depictions of females and femininity are marked by protruding clavicles, razor hipbones, and legs like string beans. High fashion models of today are the worst perpetrators with many models bringing skeletons to mind. It’s no wonder that the appearance of these girls leads many people to wonder if they ever eat at all! Epicurean pleasures — my personal favorite — are lost on them. How depressing is that?
And yet a trend of sorts has arisen recently in editorial photoshoot: models enjoying food. Read on for Terry Richardson‘s photos of high fashion models stuffing their faces, followed by a couple candids of models eating food in — gasp! — real situations.
