Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
It’s Friday, Ami took the day off and Julie’s working at home with allergies, therefore there are only three of us representin’ in “What Are We Wearing Today?” Personally, I think I am only bringing about 50 percent of what I got so, like, click on to see what two-and-a-half Frisky staffers are wearing today!
“I didn’t know she had that many tattoos! We don’t talk but we email, so I didn’t know about the new ones she’d gotten. When she first got that Jeff Buckley thing I was, like, she knows I went on a date with him, right? And I saw the Quentin Crisp, I was incredibly impressed. I was like ‘Awww, that’s my daughter!’ … Well, yeah she’s beautiful. What else did you expect! She’s my kid!”
—Courtney Love may be pretty much estranged from 18-year-old daughter Frances Bean Cobain but she’s still got a mother’s concern about her daughter’s ink. Frances recently posed for some absolutely breathtaking photos by the high-art photographer Hedi Slimane. Who would have thought that of all the famous teens to do photoshoots, the child of Courtney Love’s would be the most tasteful? [NY Observer] Keep reading »
Urban Outfitters usually flocks to controversy, but in the case of a photo featured on one of Urban’s Ts, the company is probably less than thrilled with the attention. Sometime last year. photographer Jason Lee Parry took a shot of a 15-year-old girl — allegedly model Hailey Clauson (pictured) — “revealing portions of her breasts … in a spread eagle position making her crotch area the focal point of the image.” And while Parry claims the photo was never meant to be released, and was actually stolen from the studio in which it was shot, the model’s parents aren’t buying it. They’re suing Parry, Urban, and several other retailers where the clothing featuring the image was sold for more than $28 million total. But! On the flip side, the series of shots also included photos where the young girl was drinking beer, exposing her pubic hair and riding a motorcycle without a helmet on (and obviously, presumably without a license).
According to the suit, the photos Parry took “forces” the model “to be the object of prurient interests and provides wallpaper for the likes of pedophiles.” Did she — or her parents — not realize this when the shots were taken? And anyway, does this T-shirt look in any way scandalous to you? [NY Post] Keep reading »
As I confessed last week, I am a slob, which means my closet usually looks slightly more messy than planet Earth in “Wall-E.” Thanks to a hectic schedule these past couple of weeks, my closet is particularly nightmare-ish right now, but you know what? I’m organizing it this weekend. And I’d love for you to join me. In your own closets, that is. (I mean, you’re welcome to help me in mine but it’s rather small and I’m not sure you’re ready for what we might find in there.) Just in case you need a bit more motivation, here are five benefits to tackling the project… Keep reading »
MTV’s new reality show, “Chelsea Settles,” is all about a girl who moves from a small town to chase her dreams of a career in fashion. So far, so much like “The Hills,” right? But, TWIST! Chelsea also happens to technically be “morbidly obese,” weighing in at an unhealthy 324 pounds (think “Celebrity Fit Club” or “Biggest Loser”), and comes up against a lot of not-so-kind criticism in the industry. Add to that a quirky, extroverted roommate (think “Real World”-style dramz) and you’ve potentially got the makings of a hit show. Keep reading »
This Week in Racially Insensitive Advertising News: the skin care company Nivea was forced to apologize yesterday after people objected to an ad that ran in the men’s magazine Esquire. The ad depicts a handsome, well-dressed black man holding a black, Afro-ed and bearded head in his hands, preparing to throw it into the distance, with the words “Look Like You Give A Damn: Re-Civilize Yourself.” Keep reading »
