“Just throw me in my coffin now with these earrings on.” — Rachel Zoe on last night’s episode of “The Rachel Zoe Project,” the Frisky’s latest obsession. (Check back later today for more on the Zoe show.) Keep reading »
It’s been years since I had a legitimate reason to do back-to-school shopping, but it’s practically Pavlovian how I always get the urge to update my wardrobe as soon as the slightest breeze whips through the end of summer. And what’s a back-to-school shopping spree without a brand-new bag? This year, I’m craving the Robert Le Héros Besace messenger bags. With their rich, modern colors, and bold but feminine patterns, they’re perfect for lugging around all my books and essentials. So what if none of my books are from the required reading list?

You already know Jimmy Choo, Christian Louboutin, and Manolo Blahnik. The names practically speak for themselves. These three shoe designers are the top of the line and as popular as ever. Enter my newest obsession: Nicholas Kirkwood. His shoes simply make me swoon. They remind me of superheroes and villains. Actually, I’m pretty sure if Batman was a woman, she’d be fighting crime in one of these bad boys. His designs are aggressive, dark, and mysterious while also remaining glamorous and super feminine. This talented Brit jumpstarted his career in 2005 when he won the Conde Nast Footwear Emerging Talent award for his first collection. Later, in the spring of 2008, his signature stilettos and wedges walked the runways of designers such as Tommy Hilfiger, Doo.Ri, and 3.1 Phillip Lim. Instead of bows and baubles, he opts for an architectural shoe that has power and intrigue written all over it. To go along with his unique ideas, the shoes are crafted from somewhat unlikely sources like lizard, stingray, and buffalo horn. A true one-of-a-kind; there is nothing on the market quite like them. Even if Kirkwood’s shoes aren’t up your alley, there’s no questioning his artistry and innovation. As Kirkwood says, “They’re not for everybody. Only the truly fashion-forward, which is fine with us.” On the runways, Nicholas Kirkwood shod the Spring and Summer collections of Rodarte, Alberta Ferretti, and Pollini. [Glam] Keep reading »
The butt bra has been making the rounds all over the Internet lately because it absurdly promises to “enhance the lift, shape and volume of the derriere.” This contraption not only looks extremely uncomfortable to wear, but it also looks as if it would create the reverse of VPL. Instead of panty lines, you’d get VPBM — visibly pronounced butt mounds (I just made that up, but you get the drift), which would look like a totally different entity from the rest of your body. Still this ridiculous product is hardly the first of it’s kind. Throughout the ages, women have been subjected to many a contraption that was either supposed to protect the body or show it off, so we put together an interesting slideshow of some modern day body enhancers. As a bonus, we included one contraption for men. Keep reading »
Kid Robot, proprietor of limited edition figurines from Hong Kong to Heatherette, will be launching its own line of street wear this August. Inspired by the kooky collectibles, their rainbow leaf, polka dot, and robot prints are uniquely fun, yet still so wearable. Cool and colorful hoodies, dresses, jewelry, tees and ties are guaranteed to turn you into on of the brand’s bright plastic toys. We can’t wait to look like a smokin’ Smorkin Labbit! [Nylon]

Sex sells. But does doggy-style make shoppers want cheap, trendy tops? Our gal pal Heather is way into Forever 21, but she did a double take when she saw their mannequins doubled over and sent us a picture. Usually when we pose like this, the lights are out and weâ€™ve had a couple drinks, but apparently thatâ€™s just the look the store in New York Cityâ€™s Union Square is going for. Guess working it from behind is always in style!
