The Lazy Girl’s Guide To Fashion Photography

Darren McDonald is an Australian fashion photographer who is exploring a new medium (sort of). His latest photo series involves three simple screen grabs he took during a Skype session with model Caitlin Lomax. Slacker? Or creative? Refinery 29 calls McDonald’s idea a “smart alternative to high-production beauty shots.” If so, then we say becoming a fashion photographer is the easiest job ever! To begin your career change, here’s all you need to do … Keep reading »

Female Phillies Fan Offers Sex For World Series Tickets

It’s been raining cats and dogs here in New York City for the last 24 hours, but hopefully it’ll clear up tonight for game one of the World Series between the Yankees and the Phillies. My die-hard Yankees fan of a husband would probably give his left … well, let’s just say he’d be really excited to go to a game, but he’s not as desperate — or as stupid, it seems — as one female Phillies fan who was arrested last night for her efforts to score tickets. Susan Finkelstein, 43, was charged with prostitution after she placed an ad on Craigslist offering sex in exchange for World Series tickets. She described herself as “gorgeous” and said: “I’m the creative type! Maybe we can help each other.” She was busted when an undercover cop responded to her ad and she allegedly offered to perform sex acts in exchange for some coveted tickets to the series. I’m going to suggest that from now on we refer to all sex-for-tickets transactions as “Finkelsteining,” in honor of our fallen Phillies fan. “How did you score those tickets?” “Oh, I Finkelsteined them.” Catchy, right?

Can The Sex Be Hotter If You’re About To Break Up?

New York magazine’s “Sex Diaries” issue is on stands now and it’s a fairly entertaining read. The feature spotlights a number of different New Yorkers who have shared the details of their sex life over a period of days. The one that interested me the most was written by a 29-year-old expat living in Cabo San Lucas with her boyfriend, or, rather, her “future ex-boyfriend” (FEB) whom she’s about to dump in favor of moving back to the states. Her sex diary is an up-and-down tale of being angry and then sad and then horny, as she and her FEB fight and then f**k. “It’s the first time I’ve ever cried during sex,” she writes, “And the first I’ve also had such a strong orgasm come with it.” Color me crazy, but when I’m angry or sad with a boyfriend, the last thing I want to do is screw. But maybe I’m alone! A commenter on her sex diary wrote, “I totally get the whole knowing-you’re-about-breakup-makes-hooking-up-awesome-thing.” Do you get it? Have you had amazing sex with someone, knowing the relationship was about to end? [NYMag.com] Keep reading »

Would You Wear Glow-In-The-Dark Underwear?

Here it is only three days away from Halloween and I still have no idea what I’m going to dress up as. I suppose if I wanted to go the sexy route — which I don’t think I do — I could always skip the costume altogether and don this glow-in-the-dark lingerie in a private party for two. The bra and briefs set, called the “Boudoir Collection,” was created by Australian company, Luminglow. The designer, 55-year-old Jan Hawley, said the idea came from her two grown sons. Naturally! Don’t most designers get their ideas for racy lingerie from their kids? “I have to laugh discussing knickers and bras with my sons and asking them what they like and think looks good. It’s hilarious. I can only say its been an illuminating experience from beginning to end.” Hawley says. The bra sells for about $46, the lace briefs for about $26. [via Daily Mail]

Did A Teenage Angelina Jolie Sleep With Her Mom’s Boyfriend?

In a new tell-all biography of Angelina Jolie, author Andrew Morton says that as a 16-year-old, Angelina bedded her mother’s boyfriend. According to the book, Jolie’s mother, Marcheline Bertrand, ended her relationship with the man when she found out, but the U.K.’s NOW magazine says that she and Angelina “struggled for years to repair their damaged relationship.” Does this remind anyone else of the late-’90s “General Hospital” storyline involving Carly Roberts and her estranged mother Bobbie Spencer? Anyway, Bertrand died a few years ago and Jolie has always made it seem like the two were extremely close, even naming her youngest daughter Vivienne Marcheline. According to the tabloid, Jolie’s brother, James, just found out about the decades-old affair and is, like, super pissed at his big sis. I’m gonna go out on a limb and say that if this story is true and Jolie did bone her mom’s boyfriend — when she was underage, by the way — I think it’s likely her mom forgave her pretty quickly, given the far deeper issues Jolie has admitted to struggling with as a teen.

Don’t Get It Twisted At The Yoga Competition


NYMag.com sent a fearless reporter into the heart of yoga cutthroatism at the seventh annual Yoga Asana Competition in New York City. More than a few of The Frisky ladies are yoga devotees. Speaking for myself, I can’t do anything like what these people are doing here — or, like, I can do it, but not as good as they do it. Either way, I sure can’t put my feet behind my head — that is, not yet. Probably, if I could, I’d get more dates. Anyway, I dig yoga, but Amelia and I agree this looks an awful lot like a bodybuilding competition or a beauty pageant — only more pretzel-ific. [NYMag.com] Keep reading »

Do You Eat Chocolate In Designer Clothes?

Barbie has her Christian Louboutin shoes, and now the Cadbury Carmel Bunny is getting designer duds too. (Because candy mascots obviously need their own designer pieces.) “It” designer Giles Deacon dressed the sassy-looking bunny in a strapless dress with chocolate polka dots, complete with a matching scarf in the form of a bow, all for the launch of the dessert brand’s limited-edition collection, the Cadbury Dairy Milk Caramel Nibbles. Delicious and fashionable. On a charitable note, the scarf is all about supporting Breast Cancer Awareness. It will be available for free on select fashion sites on Oct. 29 and 30, and then for sale at John Lewis stores. Proceeds will benefit Fashion Targets Breast Cancer U.K.

Sadly, the dress is not for sale, but feed us enough chocolate and we’ll be happy. [My Fashion Life]
