Sometimes it’s confusing to be a celebrity child. The whole world is watching you, photogs are snapping your every move, and bloggers are waiting for you to say something lame. All things considered, Frances Bean Cobain
seems to have emerged from Courtney Love
‘s house as normal as possible, not to mention gorgeous. But who will she become now that she’s all grown up? Will she be a starlet, a power-hungry leader, a bad girl, or a princess? She explores some possible personas in a new Harper’s Bazaar
photo spread. In it, she channels icons Evita Peron, Rizzo from “Grease”, and Belle from “Beauty and the Beast.” Duh, Rizzo seems to suit her the best. [Harper's Bazaar

Hilary Duff is pregnant—which is awesome. [My inner-Cathy disagrees! -- Editor] However, her pregnancy might have cost her a plum role in an indie flick. Hilary had been set to play bankrobber Bonnie Parker in “The Story of Bonnie and Clyde,” a re-imagining of the classic outlaw tale. This would have been a big deal, considering that the role was played by heavy-hitter Faye Dunaway in 1967. However, the makers of the new version say they are recasting, suspiciously close to when Hilary announced that she is preggers. A source with the film said, “Hilary won’t be available until next June. If we could wait we would.” Ouch. [Jezebel]

As much as we hate to see summer go, we’re excited for this fall’s fashion possibilities. Suddenly, the tights, boots and jeans we’ve put away for the last six months have crept back into our closets and are preparing to make their return. But! There’s of course a few things we wouldn’t mind adding to our ensembles. After the jump, check out The Frisky staff’s list of most-coveted fall must-haves.

You might not know this about me, but I’m a little bit into crystals. At the beginning of the year, I bought a green aventurine stone, and I never take it off. I suppose these things are only as meaningful as you allow them to be, but in my case, my aventurine crystal—which is meant to provide a “heart’s new growth.” Also: “Removes hurts of the heart and encourages new, healthy growth. Balances male/female energies. Amplifies leadership qualities. Provides courage through love.—seems to really do the trick. And let’s face it, having a little crystal power couldn’t hurt. One thing to know about crystals—if you’re really putting your energy into them, you shouldn’t let other people touch them and muck up your energy with them. If someone does touch your crystal, you can place it in a clear glass of water and sea salt on a windowsill, and allow it to soak in the sun’s rays. See, I told you I’m into this stuff. After the jump, a selection of lovely mineral and stone crystal jewelry, and what the stones can bring you. Keep reading »
Kate told me she was in the market for a pair of open-toed wedges for fall which would add a bit of edginess to her otherwise girly wardrobe.

What is it with dudes and time? By that we mean, why do they—and of course we are generalizing because that is what we get paid to do—either refuse to be committal when it comes to making a date or are super flaky about the plans/statements they do make? The Non-Committal Type says things like, “Let’s hang out soon” or “I’ll call you sometime.”
Meanwhile, The Flaky Type is super specific, but has zero follow through. “I’ll call you Monday to make plans for a date on Thursday” results in no call Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday, so you make alternate plans for Thursday night, but guess what? He’s all up in your grill that morning, saying, “Psyched to hang out tonight!
What should we do?” We are in a constant state of trying to decide which type we hate more. But more important, why do guys generally fall into one of these two buckets? Why is the “Guy Who Makes Specific Plans And Sticks To Them” such a f**king dating unicorn? We went to the guys on our IM to find out.
Long necklaces are a magical part of the jewelry kingdom. They’re great for layering with other necklaces, look striking on their own, and — fun fact! — the long vertical line they create can actually have a slimming effect. Add one to a little black dress, for example, and oh man will you look like a tall drink of water. We’ve rounded up a few of our favorites that measure at least 24″ long and cost less than $50. Click through to check them out, and remember, contrary to what some stores would have you believe, a necklace is not a shirt.
