It took me a little while, but I finally figured out why she was constantly asked out, in a relationship or every guy’s dream girl. She was approachable. Keep reading »

Jessica Biel To Climb Kilimanjaro And JT May Tag Along, Too!

Sure Jessica Biel may come off a touch prissy, but she’s got a pretty rugged plan for January—she has signed on to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest peak in Africa. Why? For clean water—and not just because she might get really thirsty during the 19,000-foot hike. Biel is braving the treacherous peak as part of the Summit on the Summit expedition. Singer and producer Kenna organized the group in honor of his father who suffered diseases from drinking unclean water as a child growing up in Ethiopia. Biel believes that access to clean water is “a basic human necessity that needs to be addressed now” and is honored to be climbing Kilimanjaro with the team to help raise awareness and hopefully some dough. So I’m sure you’re all wondering what I’m wondering…is Justin Timberlake joining her? It’s not confirmed, but in a recent issue of GQ he said he was preparing for a major mountain climb. Translation: following Jess’ bum up Mount Kili. [Pop Eater] Keep reading »

This is me, in the glasses I bought at Costco three years ago. I normally wear contacts, at least out and about, but at home I rock the glasses.

I really want something nerdyish but still slightly femme. Here are nine rather sexy librarian-esque options. (Prices are for frames, not including the cost of lenses.)

Is Gisele Bunchen genetically engineered from head to toe to be the ultimate male fantasy? Since she’s preggers and taking some time off her normal job of looking absurdly hot, she’s biding her time by taking flying lessons to learn how to pilot a helicopter. “She’s been coming to the airfield for a couple months and she started her lessons a few weeks ago,” says Keith Douglass, of Shoreline Aviation outside Boston. “She’s gung ho about learning to fly. She’s one of the best students we’ve ever had.” [People]

But Gisele isn’t the only famous person who’s first in flight. Check out these other hot celebrity pilots.

Now You Can Shop The Sartorialist At Topshop

My inspiration board is filled with photographs taken by the Sartorialist master Scott Schuman, and my wallet has been depleted ever since Topshop came to New York City.

Now, to make all my style dreams come true, the British high street store has tapped Scott to create shopping pages for customers, based on his iconic photographs. He’s broken down his top five looks from Fashion Week and made each item shop-able through the Topshop website. Meaning that his brilliant eye for fashion has quickly translated into online shopping.

The best part? Your new style looks only require a quick click to buy and all of the sudden you’ve become the stylish girl on the cobblestone streets. All that I’m left wanting for now is my own image appearing on his blog… [Topshop]

Friday Roundup: It Happened This Week On The Frisky
