Shiloh Jolie-Pitt, the world’s coolest child, was recently photographed (GASP!) sucking her thumb. Not that she seems to give a f**k if the world knows. But, of course, The Enquirer is very concerned. “Experts” warn that at almost six years old, Shiloh should have outgrown the habit long ago, and that she could have serious orthodontic issues. Or even worse … an anxiety disorder. Allegedly, Brad and Angie are bribing her to quit her thumb with a “special daddy-daughter camping trip.” If she doesn’t kick the habit now, she may end up a statistic. About ten percent of adults never stopped sucking their thumbs. And some of them just so happen to be celebrities. A warning to Shiloh: This could be you if you don’t get that thumb out of your mouth. Click through to see some adult celebrity thumb-suckers. [Celebitchy]
Hello from Paris! I’m spending the next month traveling around Europe and this beautiful city was the first stop on my journey. I’ve never been here before and instantly fell in love with the beautiful architecture, friendly people, and endless croissant supply, but the best part? The fashion—oh, the fashion! Women here really do step up their style game, and it’s inspired me to update my wardrobe too. These are the key pieces I’ve seen strutting by me on the sidewalk these past few days.

That night at Madison Square Garden, as my date changed into sneakers by standing on his work shoes rather than the floor because “he didn’t want to soil his socks,” my first thought was, Isn’t everything about a Phish show dirty? My second thought was that while the red cashmere socks certainly qualified him as metrosexual, his unselfconscious aversion to dirt was a more finicky proclamation. And then it hit me like a box of steel-toed wing-tips. What I had just witnessed was the emergence of the metrosexual’s kissing cousin: the high maintenance man. While both metros and highmay (high maintenance) men are fastidious, the former are strictly fussy about how they dress and the latter are persnickety in myriad ways that may have nothing to do with their appearance. It’s just as high maintenance Sally — of “When Harry Met…” — so clearly explained: “I just want it the way I want it.” With the overwhelming acceptance of (or resignation to) metrosexuality, men who once feared being ridiculed for their highmay ways are stepping out of their walk-in closets onto the well-manicured path blazed by their sartorially-inclined cousins. While dating a man first in line at a Barney’s sample sale may seem like a bonus, a boyfriend should only be highmay about two things: sports and keeping his woman happy. All other forms of maintenance are flashing red lights on the highmay highway alerting women to slow down and reconsider. Thus I offer up the following list of traits for women to heed, as they’ll undoubtedly need some practical dating advice in the age of the high-maintenance man.
When Ryan Gosling isn’t busy starring in critically acclaimed films like “Drive,” “Crazy Stupid Love,” and “Blue Valentine,” or rushing off to stop street fights over amateur art, he’s leading a one man war. A war against what, you ask? Socks. For the last few months, as he’s jetted to and fro to promote the aforementioned flicks and settled in to his new home of NYC, Ryan has shunned socks in favor of bare ankles. (What? I’ve always been known for my attention to detail, so of course I’ve noticed.) Personally, Ryan Gosling association aside, I am a fan of this look on a man especially when coupled with a dandy-looking suit or slim-cut pants. Nothing ruins a man’s outfit like the sight of stark white socks garishly blinding you below the cuff of his pants. I’m not sure The Gos can maintain this particular trend through the cold East Coast winter, so bookmark this slideshow, featuring eight photos of Ryan taunting womankind with his bare ankles!
I didn’t sleep well last night and then Lucca barfed all over my comforter this morning (she’s fine, I think she just had a tummy ache), so I decided to work from home. With Ami off for the day and Julie working from home as well, it was looking like it might be a dull day in the office for Jessica and Kate and unlikely we would do a “What Are Wearing Today” slideshow. But Kate and Jess gathered a couple behind-the-scenes Frisky staffers and peer-pressured them into joining the style parade. Click on to find out what they are wearing today!
We couldn’t help but fall a little bit for Peter Som’s exuberant, larger-than-life flower prints in his Spring/Summer 2012 collection. But one thing we can’t abide — or afford — is Som’s exorbitant designer prices. So we’ve searched around and found 10 pieces that evoke the same sense of joy and happiness that Som’s flowers do, without the majorly bummer price tag. The key to wearing any of these floral items? Make sure to keep everything else very, very basic. Check out our picks!
