When you think of “Sesame Street”‘s Big Bird, you might not automatically think “sexy.” But, ah, that’s where you’d be wrong. If this year’s sexy adult Halloween costumes are any indication, Big Bird is very sexy. After the jump, 10 more strange-as-hell “sexy” costumes. And tell us: What’s the weirdest, most inappropriate “sexy” Halloween costume you’ve ever seen?
Saving the best for last? Please! Let’s start our Monday morning off on the right foot, shall we, by checking out the best photos from last night’s Emmy Awards red carpet. And by “best,” I actually mean “worst” dressed, of course, because it’s the most fun.
As a hat lover since the day I was born, I’d like to give a heartfelt thank you to the fedora for reacquainting women with hats. The fedora has gone way past trend to become a fashion staple, and now I’d like to introduce you to the felt floppy hat. Glamour girls–you know, those who like to be seen lounging by the pool, not in it–are rather acquainted with the felt floppy hat’s cousin, the big straw floppy hat. But I can attest that the felt hat is much easier to wear than the straw one. I mean, hats are expected in the colder months and don’t seem as forced as in the summer. Also, few items can bridge the divide between the boho-chic look and the edgy-downtown vibe like the felt floppy hat. To prove this point, I put together one day and one night look where the felt floppy hat was the foundation. To work the downtown-bohemian look, contrast sleek, fitted fabrics with more plush ones and top the body-conscious outfit with a looser piece of outerwear. The result is a luxe and chic head-to-toe look that will have the style hawks flocking.
Now that the temperature’s dropping, we’re craving winter-y colors, too. Plum appeals because it’s a romantic, sort of sexy take on purple. After the jump, 10 plummy pieces to fall for this fall.
A heady combination of yellow and green, the color chartreuse was named after the French liqueur of the same name. It’s not the easiest color to pull off, but we love how dynamic and cheerful it is. Check out 10 must-have chartreuse pieces after the jump!
Deciding to make a drastic hair color change is quite a daunting task, but figuring out how to adjust your makeup look can be even worse, especially if you’re going from dirty blond to Sara Rue red. Such is the dilemma of reader Rachel, who sent us a beauty distress mayday recently. You see, Rachel is worried about clashing her lip and eye colors with her new dark red hair, but she needn’t worry because TF has her covered. First off, let us congratulate Rachel for having the guts to go from one hair color extreme to another. Let us also say that we would never criticize or caution against wearing any color of eyeshadow, lipstick, or blush regardless of hair color. Makeup is supposed to be fun, right?! So if you like a particular color then, by golly, wear the hell out of it. It’s all about attitude, and don’t forget that makeup can be wiped or washed off. Keep reading »
I was just looking at our traffic report yesterday and we got a boatload of new visitors arriving at The Frisky because they wanted to see Scarlett Johansson’s butt photo. For those of you who came for that reason and then clicked on over to this post, I hope you are just as impressed with our clothed physiques. Here is what we are wearing today!
Let’s face it, when we think of sweaters, cardigans automatically come to mind — this is the era of extreme layering after all. But having lived in an open-stitch pullover sweater all summer, I’ve realized how one can transform a wardrobe. Not only are they easy to take on and off, but they also go with practically everything, including cropped pants and pencil skirts a la Joan Holloway of “Mad Men.” Since pullover sweaters simplify a look, choose one that has a bit of embellishment, pattern, intricate stitching, or color to kick up the panache-factor without the heavy use of accessories. I wouldn’t recommend ditching all your cardigans this fall, but maybe one of these 10 wardrobe-transforming pullover sweaters will get some heavy rotation in your style life.
Laura and Kate Mulleavy’s latest collection is awash in cerulean blue, bright purple and yellow prints. It’s sharp, bubbly and brimming with a joyfulness not seen in their previous collections. The reference point was Vincent Van Gogh’s Starry Night and Sunflowers, both of which could be seen liberally translated onto full skirts and slim dresses. Keep clicking to see some of our favorite looks for the collection…
Well, imagine that. I have a total fashion boner for J. Crew’s Spring/Summer 2012 collection. Yeah, it’s basically more of the same from them, but the same is awesome. Fancy-lookin’ skirts dressed down by button-down shirts! Lady-like shapes unstuffy-fied (yeah, I made that verb up) by more colors than a bag of tropical Skittles! I’m in!
