For their new spring collection, Nars had supermodel Amber Valletta channel Catherine Deneuve in the iconic “La Chamade.” “It’s very sophisticated and bourgeois in a Parisian ‘16th Arrondissement’ way,” said Francois himself. “She [Deneuve] is the perfect reference for this collection, and apropos for spring, a time to embrace color and get noticed.” While we love the bouffant hair and even the fun yellow eyeshadow, we’re especially drawn to the new lipstick, called Cruising. Past attempts at a Bardot-like French nude pout have drawn us down a questionable path (concealer on the lips anyone?), but this hue works because it has a slight amount of sheer pink to make it more wearable. So you know, c’est magnifique or whatever. [Nars] Keep reading »
My favorite hobbit, Elijah Wood, just hosted his first eating contest, called Lord of the Wings. The competition took place at Epstein’s Bar in New York and the winner, “Big Dan” Graff, awesomely said, “It was a fun night. I ate 14 wings in three minutes. Elijah was a good sport and a really sweet little guy. I’ll probably regret saying this, but he’s got the biggest blue eyes I’ve ever seen on a man.” Awww, sounds like there was some bromance brewing at the wing competition. [NY Post]
And because I’ve got a huge ol’ crush on Kobayashi, I’m gonna introduce you to some of the most random eating competitions ever. Keep reading »
Behold, Vanessa Paradis (aka Johnny Depp‘s main squeeze) in the first photo from her new Chanel ad campaign for the brand’s Rouge Coco lipstick. Could she (and this photo, above) be anymore beautiful? So pretty! The campaign photos were taken by Jean Baptiste Mondino and stay tuned for a short film starring Vanessa as well. Rouge Coco goes on sale in March and it looks set to be Chanel’s top product in 2010. (The lipstick is based on a design dating from 1952—a team of “investigators” has tried to emulate the lipstick that Coco Chanel would have liked.) Check out a few behind-the-scenes outtakes, after the jump!

Blake Lively did her best greaser impression on February’s cover of Esquire, though I remember the guys in “Grease” wearing pants.
In unrelated news: the arch of Blake’s left eyebrow looks super-obviously Photoshopped, right? [Esquire.com]
UPDATE: Eek, how embarrassing! Commenters have correctly pointed out that the Sharks and the Jets are from “West Side Story,” not “Grease.” And I’ve seen both of those movies a million times. For shame! Keep reading »
Hold on to your seats (er, couches?) people, because this is a big television week. You’ll probably want to cancel your plans tonight so that you can watch the 100th episode of “How I Met Your Mother,” the episode of “The Bachelor” where Rozlyn gets booted for scamming on a producer, and the premiere of “Let’s Talk About Pep.” Oh, plus this week also brings the season premieres of “Southland” and “Project Runway.” After the jump, all the details.

So, you know how you put on eyeliner in the morning, trying to make it look subtle and work-appropriate, and you’re feeling good about the whole thing until you catch your reflection in the mirror around lunch time and throw up a little? No? Well, it happens when your liner is prone either to smudging below the lash line or obnoxiously transferring to the middle of your lids when you blink. Either way, it’s not cute and countless women fall victim to this problem daily.
In what we can only call a deeply selfless and humanitarian effort, The Frisky staff has been in tireless pursuit of eyeliner that solves this enormous problem. Keep reading »
It’s that time of year again, people. No, not time to hibernate in your apartment with Netflix and a down comforter. It’s time for the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo in Las Vegas. The big buzz at this year’s expo is Roxxxy TrueCompanion, who’s being billed as the world’s first sex robot. Not only does she come with a programmable personality—Frigid Farrah, Wild Wendy, Mature Martha, etc—but she can speak and listen, and actually learns what her owner likes and dislikes. She can even have an orgasm. Roxxxy costs $7,000 and goes on sale next week, and she kind of makes Andy—the world’s most advanced sex android who has real hair, real pubes, and a functional G-Spot—look like a bargain at $3,820. For any ladies out there who find this idea even semi-appealing, fear not. TrueCompanion is currently working on a male sex robot as we speak. Just as long as the engineers aren’t working on something like a fully electric car! I just have one big starter question for people thinking of purchasing one of these robots. Do you store it in your closet? It’s not quite as explainable as the vibrator in the bedside table drawer. [PC Mag] Keep reading »
Oh, sci-fi dweebs, what will you think of next? “Star Wars” and burlesque are two subcultures which should not belong together, but somehow, these performers made it work! Except for “sexy” Jabba The Hutt, who will haunt my nightmares for time immemorial.
Pic, if you dare, after the jump … Keep reading »
