The Frisky’s Chic On The Street: London Sep. 21st 2009

You’ve got to love a couple that looks like they share a closet. Strolling Bond Street, a famous shopping stop in London, Fiona’s Gant blazer and preppy loafers look smart in the early autumn. Her best accessory? Her boyfriend, Gustav. Hopefully, Gustav is as good a match in other ways as he is in the wardrobe department. Keep reading »

After a weekend of bopping around in jeans and a sweatshirt, I felt like dressing up a little today: Heels mean business. What helps you get through the first day back at work after a relaxing weekend?

The Top 10 Best Drugstore Beauty Products

There’s nothing wrong with having a splurgy mosey down department store lane, but some of our favorite, not to mention affordable and effective, products come from the same place where we fill our prescriptions. And lest you feel you’re missing out, derms as well as professional makeup artists and hairstylists swear by drugstore brands, like Cetaphil, which costs about $8 and works well for all skin types.

Can’t Sleep? Try Brushing Your Teeth

I am an insomniac. And I don’t care how many times my shrink tells me to “try deep breathing” or “meditate before bedtime” or “stop drinking caffeine,” I’m still going to go for the Ambien on sleepless nights. Here’s one bedtime story she’s probably never heard: Pearly Dreams, the toothpaste that puts you to sleep. Keep reading »

Anthropologie Gets Into the Collaboration Game

Apparently, Anthropologie is jealous of the attention that stores like H&M, Topshop, and Uniqlo are getting for their designer collaborations. So the romantic brand nabbed Brian Wolk and Claude Morais of Ruffian to create four collections which will appear in 55 stores, beginning in November. Sadly, no pics yet, but think a total ’40s style look, complete with coats, silk dresses, and their very own prints. If the stockings look anything like their polka-dot design that walked down the runway in the fall ’09 collection, then it’s sure to sell out immediately.

But it wouldn’t be an Anthropologie collection without just a tidbit of home goods. So, of course, Ruffian-style candles and glasses will be available for purchase. Plus, come spring, you’ll be able to lie on sheets by the boys. Basically they’re taking over the store and our homes. And you know what? We are totally OK with that! [WWD]

Hair Model Citizen: Ain’t Miss Beehivin’

This sculptural beehive was spotted at Danielle Scutt’s showing at London Fashion Week. And while we fully salute this Hair Model Citizen, we can’t say this is a runway trend we’ll be rocking anytime soon. [London, 9/21/09] Keep reading »

The Real Housewives Of Atlanta Face Their Doppelgangers

All weekend, I’ve been humming “Don’t Be Tardy To The Party.” This is the ultimate sign that I am a “Real Housewives of Atlanta” addict. So I was excited to see that BravoTV.com has posted the images of the ladies that photographer Derek Blanks shot a few weeks back. NeNe Leakes creative director for the shoot, picked a pair of alter egos for each woman to embody. Originally, she wanted Kim Zolciak to pose as a black woman, but Kim wasn’t so into that idea. “It would have required me to be painted black, which is SO insensitive,” Kim wrote on her blog. “And NeNe is mad that I won’t do something that would not only disrespect her but an entire race of people?! Not happening.” Instead, Kim posed for the photo above as a Stepford Wife and a rich wife. Only, Kim was surprised to see the words “rich wife” replaced with “mistress” and swears on her blog that she never agreed to that. “Who in the hell would agree to be a mistress??” she wrote. “I wish these ladies would stop acting like I am the only one who has dated someone in a dissolving marriage.”

After the jump, see all the photos. Keep reading »

Amy Poehler Does Her Best Paula Abdul

Amy Poehler visits “Inside the Actor’s Studio” tonight at 7 p.m. On the show, James Lipton gets Amy to do her Paula Abdul impression. Her imitation of the ex-”American Idol” judge is exactly like Paula’s real-life wacky and nonsensical way of talking, and we’re pretty sure there weren’t any muscle relaxers involved. Check it out in the above video, starting about one minute in. Keep reading »

London Fashion Week Offers (Gasp!) Diversity

After a rocky, anorexia-accusation-laden beginning, London Fashion Week is now offering us a glimpse at runways not peopled with white, pre-pubescent stick figures. PPQ followed in the steps of Carlos Campos in casting an entire runway of black models; knitwear designer Mark Fast sent three “plus-sized” (read “averaged-sized”) girls down the runway in his uber-clingy dresses; and Sykes pulled a Charles Nolan, marching models up to 70 years old down its catwalk.
