My mother has given me some great (and critical) fashion wisdom over the years—don’t mix denims, wear what feels comfortable (note: this does not mean wearing pajamas in public), dress for the season (i.e., no flip-flops when it’s snowing), and never let your underwear peep through your clothes.
Oh, and always wear underwear. Keep reading »
Have you ever wondered how Jennifer Aniston keeps rounding up boyfriend after boyfriend? The secret might be in her kitchen, which she claims is “the best restaurant in town.” But it’s not because the actress gets behind the stove. All the credit goes to her stellar personal chefs, Jewels and Jill Elmore. “My friends love coming over [to my house], because they get fed,” she told O Magazine. Of course, Aniston is not the only starlet with a wonderful chef in the kitchen. Tons of celebs are served up food in the comfort of their own homes crafted personally for them by the best in the business. [People]
After the jump, some of the hottest Hollywood chefs who really warm our appetite.

You know what they say: The children are our future. Of late, this is especially the case in fashion, with Marc Jacobs’ foray into swimwear for tots and Cynthia Rowley’s new collection for mega-chain Babies”R”Us (uh, we know).
Hand it to Monsieur Jean Paul Gaultier to kick it up a notch with his new squeal-worthy kids line! Called Junior Jean-Paul Gaultier, the back-to-school designs take inspiration from the ’80s and quintessential (if not downright stereotypical) French style. For fashion-istas and -istos of 2-16 years of age, the styles include too-cute sailor dresses, cheesy (yet adorable) leopard jackets, and cheeky berets. Sheesh, if these kids dress this well before they’ve even hit puberty, what are they going to look like when they’re grown-ups? [FashionIndie.com] Keep reading »
“Afhgan Star,” Afghanistan’s answer to “American Idol,” is challenging religious traditions and promoting social change in this conservative country. The show, which allows people to vote on their fave singer via text, even lets women perform—check out this year’s only female finalist, Elaha Sorur, above. Last year, two gals made it to the end and one generated mega controversy when she danced, allowing her head scarf to slip down. After her performance, the singer got death threats and had to go into temporary hiding. Keep reading »
Oh, unholy of holies. Too much TV-watching is causing high blood pressure in young children! It seems that kids who spend more hours in front of the screen, even if they’re thin and in shape, have significantly higher diastolic and systolic blood pressures than those who don’t watch much TV. Joey Eisenmann, the senior author of this research, believes that kids who spend more time in front of the tube end up snacking more, get distressed at some shows, and get less sleep. These poor habits prove that the American Academy of Pediatrics’ recommendation of no more than two hours of television a day for youngsters is right on target. [NY Times]
But I’ve got to wonder, what about adults?

I’m off next week for a much needed vacation — Costa Rica! Surfing! Yoga! Beer! — leaving The Frisky in the very capable hands of your regular bloggers. Consider this video my parting gift. There’s a dance sequence in “(500) Days Of Summer,” in which Joseph Gordon-Levitt is so high on life that he dances through the streets of L.A., but Zooey Deschanel‘s own sweet moves were absent. On his website, hitRECord.org, Joe posted this video and wrote:
I mean, it really felt a bit wrong — Zooey’s born for musical numbers, and the one day she wasn’t on set, we go and shoot a musical number? The wrong had to be righted. So when it came time to start promoting the movie, we had the idea to kill two birds with one stone…. It’s a work of art in its own right. And to me, it seems like so much more effective an endorsement of the movie than any interview or fashion shoot…. Plus it was about as purely fun a day on a set as I’ve ever had. Hope you like it!
I like it so much, I am overlooking the fact that JGL still hasn’t responded to my Twitter date invite. Keep reading »
A man in Florida has quite the alibi as to why police found more than 1,000 images of child pornography on his computer. He said his cat did it. Now, I’ve heard about dogs eating homework, but never have I come across the my-cat-downloaded-porn-while-my-computer-was-open-trading-music defense. Well, if he ever is acquitted of the porn charges, he’s all clear to be the next victim of attack by the RIAA for openly admitted to authorities that he was downloading music.

TMZ is reporting that the guy in this photo, walking with “The Real Housewives of Atlanta”‘s Kim Zolciak, is “Big Poppa,” the guy who had previously been identified as Lee Najjar, a prominent rich dude in the ATL. The picture was allegedly taken in November, but I’m just happy to see that my suspicions have been confirmed — I knew Kim was the type of chick that wore high heels with her swimwear!
