Hair Model Citizen: Little Miss Perfect

Sarah Paxton is filming “The Beautiful Life” and she is giving me a serious case of nostalgia in terms of remembering that evil blond cheerleader that totally ruined my life in high school. (OK, we didn’t have sports and it was art school and everyone was really nice.) But! This hair is, like, traditional pretty, pretty princess hair that’s modern because it’s got texture and it’s just slightly messy. To copy this bitch’s perfect hair (I mean the girl, not the dog), apply Garnier Fructis Style Soft Curl Cream to slightly damp hair, twist large sections with your fingers, and allow to air dry. To get a perfectly mussed look, rub a balloon on your head for a little extra static. Seriously. It works. [NYC, 9/23/09] Keep reading »

Is LeAnn Rimes The Next Britney Spears Or Lindsay Lohan?

A few years ago, country star LeAnn Rimes was so squeaky clean that she made Sandra Dee look naughty. But over the past six months, that’s started to come apart, between her affair with Eddie Cibrian, subsequent filing for divorce, and multiple moving vehicle snafus. Now, LeAnn is looking a lot more like two other women who started out as wholesome teen stars and grew up into not-so-stable adults. So is LeAnn the next Britney Spears or Lindsay Lohan? After the jump, the parallels between BritBrit, Lilo, and LeAnn. We should probably start calling her LeRi, like, now.

Look Who’s Talking Now: Kate Gosselin’s New TV Show

Kate Gosselin came onto the television scene with her husband Jon when “Jon and Kate Plus 8″ began airing in 2008. Now, after a stint on “The View,” she’s ready to join a new panel talk show, aimed at working moms. “I’ve been given the gift of gab, so why not use it?” Gosselin told the audience at the Southern Women’s Show in Charlotte, NC, where she was answering questions and signing copies of her books. According to TVGuide.com, the panel will also include Food Network host Paula Deen and morning show vets Rene Syler (“The Early Show”) and Lee Woodruff (“Good Morning America”).

In our opinion, Kate isn’t the (only) reality star who should be given a talk show. A few of our suggestions after the jump. Keep reading »

The Frisky Editors Go E-Commerce Crazy!


It should come as no surprise to readers that The Frisky staff is really into fashion, after clicking through our daily outfits for the last few weeks. Chances are, a lot of what we — specifically myself, Catherine, and Annika — have worn has come from shopping on Gilt.com, an online sample sale website. Each day the site has a handful of new designer sales starting at NOON ON THE DOT and the excitement that fills the office at this moment is, uh, baffling to some. Specifically, to one of our male co-workers — yes, they exist and no they don’t fan us with palm fronds all day — who shot the video above while we engaged in a particularly nail-biting shopping frenzy during one of Gilt’s final sales. For the record, I have worn the jeans. The top still has tags. Keep reading »

First Time For Everything: A May-December Romance

We met when I delivered his mail, a task performed by all the interns. But I liked to think I was different: I was an eager little NYU journalism student, desperate for attention, and I chatted with all the editors as I passed their cubicles. Many magazine editors on the top of the masthead are a bit standoffish and see interns, especially ones who want to talk while they’re busy, as an annoyance. But the Older Man was actually inquisitive and kind; we’d chitchat a little bit, a welcome reprieve from the other editors who could be cold and snappish. Keep reading »

Costume Or High Fashion?

London Fashion Week, more than New York, Milan, or Paris, is a place where crazy fashion gets showcased and appreciated. Yesterday’s shows were no exception. While it didn’t have the star power present at Burberry, Katie Eary’s menswear collection was pretty special. Keep reading to find out why. Keep reading »

Are You Prepared For A $7100 Cab Ride?

I’m all about loving New York City. After moving here at age 18 for college and never leaving, I’m still discovering new gems in my city and reasons to be even more obsessed. But when it comes to city attractions like the Empire State Building and taxi cabs, I like to keep them just where they are.

So with the news that Bottega Veneta has created a limited-edition handbag in the spirit of the monstrous yellow and black cars, I’m still recovering from the price tag. For only $7100 one of the 50 specially made handbags, called the NYCabat, can be yours. Thank you, but I think for that price I’ll be looking for a bag that’s less of a tourist trap and more of an iconic piece. Like a bag modeled after the Met or Cloisters, instead of a taxi which reminds me of drivers coming to screeching halts and denying my credit card because the machine “doesn’t work.”

How do you feel about spending $7100 on a Bottega Veneta bag modeled after taxi cabs, which, allow me to mention, are already too pricey as it is. [The Moment]

Dear Wendy: Anniversary Let-Down And Dropping The L Bomb

My boyfriend Curtis and I have been going out for six months now. Just last Tuesday we celebrated our six month anniversary. So I asked a friend what I should get him. This is my first real relationship ever lasting 6 months. She said get him a card, so I found one that pretty much described how I feel about him. But he didn’t get me a card or anything. We went out to dinner at a pizza restaurant, and when we were leaving he asked “Do you have tip money”? Am I going crazy? Cause this sounds wrong to me. So we get in the car to leave and he’s like “What’s wrong”? He doesn’t know!!! Could he be this dense, seriously? I said, “I took the time to find a card on how I feel about you, and you don’t get me anything.” You know what his reply was to that?! He said: “I said ‘Happy Anniversary’! He just “didn’t realize,” he says. I was so angry. I need to know If I was over-reacting or not. I just felt I needed a card at least. Please tell me what you think. – Cardless

13 Ways To Go Shiny With Patent

patent accessories 092309 m jpg
High shine for day is in this fall, whether it be via patent, metallics or sequins. While we fully acknowledge that patent leather and its cousin polyurethane can seem a little costumey when done in heavy doses, thankfully, there are a number of patent shoes and accessories in colors other than black, red, and white, which comes off a little cheap at times. Also, keep in mind it’s best to stick to one or two pieces of patent at a time, so you don’t look like Catwoman or sweat yourself to death. Keep clicking for ways to add some patent shine into your wardrobe.
