Sure, her husband Keith Urban is stoked, but how much cleavage is too much, even when a red carpet is involved? Nicole Kidman looked stunning at the CMAs, of course, but those poor girls look like they’re struggling for survival. [Nashville, 11/11/09] Keep reading »
Kate Moss recently told WWD that one of her mantras in life that has helped her achieve success is “nothing tastes as good as thin feels.” A totally weird and disturbing quote on its own, I’m slightly surprised the fashion daily (and the Huffington Post, which picked up the story) didn’t know or point out that the saying is also a motto expunged by pro-anorexia groups on the internet. Seriously, look here, here, and here. Considering Kate’s image has long served as “thinspiration” for girls suffering from eating disorders, it’s disturbing to hear her validating the mantra, especially since I can’t see how anyone actually could find it to be inspiring in a healthy way. And guess what? Plenty of things taste better than feeling thin. Like the burrito I am stuffing in my pie hole right now. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
I don’t know about you, but I was feeling kind of warm and fuzzy inside after Wednesday night’s “Wheels” episode of “Glee
.” In case you missed it, the gleeks had to roll around in wheelchairs for three hours a day to be more empathetic toward Artie. The Cheerios accepted a cheerleader with Down’s syndrome. And Kurt auditioned to sing the “Defying Gravity” solo, even though it’s traditionally sung by a woman, for sectionals. The central theme of the episode was inequality and discrimination. While it was glossy in that “Glee” sort of way, I still found it thought-provoking. But not everyone is singing praises about the show. Seems like all the episode did was inspire controversy.

Over at Kingdom of Style, Queen Michelle points to the amazing jewelry designs of Renee Andriole. From the I Dare You collection, the piece you see here is a long blade knife ring made of sterling silver and brass bolts. “This ring alludes to the beauty within the danger,” Andriole notes. One best be careful when armed with this wearable art. Or, you could opt for the slightly safer smaller blade. [Kingdom of Style] Keep reading »
“No disrespect, but no Amber Rose for me. Everybody has their past. And don’t get me wrong, I’m not judgmental at all. But I do like a certain amount of class.”
–Omarion responds to rumors that he secretly married a bisexual stripper, like Kanye’s GF. But just so we’re clear, by “class” Omarion means “no” to bisexuality, but “yes” to pants sagged so low you can see his undies and butt crack.

We don’t mean to sound harsh here, but it’s probably wise for Kristen Stewart to buckle down and get a stylist, or at least replace the one she’s presently working with, if she has one. She’s been looking a bit off at “New Moon” events all week, but when it comes to this getup, we can remain silent no more. Look closely at this very odd dress and notice the ill fit, unflattering silhouette and see-through panels that reveal her panty line and side boobs. What in the hell is going on here? Yes, the sheer trend is, like, a thing now, but it’s definitely one of those proceed-with-caution trends. We’re not even sure The Fashion Peacekeepers could find anything positive to say about this frock. It’s just puzzling. Keep reading »
I was deeply disappointed by the latest poll at Don Q’s Lady Data. According to Don Q’s secret lady spies, 85 percent of women want to date a guy that’s taller than them and 0 percent want to date a guy shorter than them. What? That’s crazy! No love for the shorties? For all of you shorty-hating ladies out there, I think the 8’1” Sultan of Turkey is still single. I’m sure you’ll find him drop-dead sexy holding that 1,435 pound gingerbread cookie he presented to the Guinness Book of World Records in Norway yesterday.
Here at The Frisky we like all shapes and sizes of gingerbread cookies … er … men. Whether you’re super short or freakishly tall, we don’t discriminate. And in case you needed any extra incentive to go out with that hot, vertically economical guy, here are 10 reasons why you won’t be disappointed. Keep reading »
The fashion industry may have a long-standing tendency to exclude certain groups and cultures, but more and more we’re seeing this change as people begin challenging the status quo. Now the transsexual community is getting a voice with a new style publication. Billed as “the first transversal fashion magazine,” Candy has just debuted its premiere issue in a limited-edition circulation of only 1,000 copies. The indie publication doesn’t reveal too much through its main online information source, a Facebook fan page, but its official statement explains that the mag is “completely dedicated to celebrating transvestism, transexuality, cross dressing and androgyny, in all its manifestations … CANDY is a magazine for everybody. A space for individual freedom, and a publication that pushes people to take on the persona of what they always wanted to be.”
Check out the amazing behind-the-scenes video of the cover shoot of some seriously made-up drag queens, after the jump! Now we’re dying to know more. Where can we get our hands on a copy? [Candy's Facebook Page] Keep reading »
