Das Commitee, an advertising agency in Hamburg, Germany, has just unveiled their ads for World AIDS Day, which happens on Dec. 1. The three-part series features photos of Hitler, Stalin, and Saddam Hussein gettin’ busy with models next to the slogan “AIDS Is A Mass Murderer.” Yikes. I know it’s for a good cause, but really, I never ever wanted to see history’s most horrible dictators doin’ it. See the full NSFW (thanks to some bare man butt and some heavy breathing) video here — it truly fits the definition of “viral.” [WOW Report] Keep reading »
Today, since our lovely boss told us we could get our weekend started a little earlier by working from home, we present you with a special edition of “What Are People Wearing Today?” coming to you live from our apartments all over NYC! This is where the style honesty really comes out. As a wise sage once said, “If you get dressed and no one sees your outfit, does it even matter what you’re wearing?” So what are you wearing today?
Vaguely freaky news from the girls over at Glamour: According to NYC cosmetic dentist Dr. Thomas Connelly, Pepto-Bismol turns your teeth black. Truth. So what do you do when faced with a five-alarm fire going on down in your stomach? And why the hell does this even happen? (And where have I been living? I’m a Pepto guzzler when the belly isn’t happy, are my teeth totally grody?) His answer, after the jump. Keep reading »
As if it wasn’t enough that Florida already has a ridiculously high number of female teachers who get down and dirty with male students, now they can add another shady teacher headline to the list of indiscretions. After high school biology teacher Tiffany Shepherd was fired last year when some racy bikini pics of her on a boat surfaced, she thought it would all just blow over and that she’d be able to get another teaching job. After sending out 2,500 resumes to the sound of crickets chirping, Tiffany decided to take her teaching career in … another direction. She’s starring in a porno. Hey, when life gives you lemons, you squeeze them into porn lemonade, right?

After months off the job following the whole some-creep-filming-her-nude-in-her-hotel-and-posting-the-voyeuristic-vid-on-the-internet thing, Erin Andrews returned to ESPN last night as a sideline commentator at the South Carolina vs. North Carolina State game. (Goooo Gamecocks!) Some critics are saying that her return was uneventful and boring, but, uh, what did they want her to do? Tap dance while saying, “I’m baaack! And this time with clothes on!” I gotta say that I think Andrews handled the situation like a champ. When the video exploded online, she stepped out of the public eye. Thankfully, ESPN stood behind her and threatened legal action against anyone who posted the video. Since then, she’s stayed mums on the topic. She did a photo shoot for the September issue of GQ, but while the magazine often has women take it all off for their images, Erin kept it classy posing with a group of football players. In one of the images, above, she’s suited-up, covered in mud, and sitting on a locker room bench. I think it’s a great commentary on who she is—one of the guys and, yet, not. Next Friday, Erin’s one and only interview on the subject of the video will air—and it’s with Oprah. Keep reading »
NeNe Leakes shouted “I’m the director” all over Buckhead as she prepared “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” for the alter-ego photo shoot by photographer Derek Banks. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. The episode opened with the social director of the crew (NeNe) inviting Kandi and Sheree for Minx Nails manicures. They really over-shared about their pubic hair while getting primped. Kandi got rid of hers with electrolysis. And Sheree is completely bald, and I don’t know why. Brazilians? Alopecia? Who knows.

Get a load of “Old Ladies Rebellion,” a clothing line launched by a 24-year-old specifically for, well….old ladies. And by old, Karst means old: seventy-plus. Her catwalk shows are only for the gray-haired and gorgeous. The elderly models elegantly sashay out in a series of knee length shift dresses. Karst keeps her signature silhouette interesting via bold graphics, quirky, clever spins tromp d’oeil (patterns that give the illusion of accessories or items that aren’t there), and ironic statements such as, “Let’s Begin With The End.” The designer has said she looks to older women, specifically her grandmother as muses. She cut her chops at the prestigious Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London and went on to gain experience on London’s Savile Row and in Paris. Now, with buzz building and the collection available to view online (you must reach out directly to Karst for purchase), it’s beyond clear that this is a rebellion worth joining. [HighSnobette]
More looks after the jump! Keep reading »
After talking DIY haircut tales of terror earlier this week, naturally, we started thinking about other beauty disasters we’ve suffered, and hair color mishaps topped the list. Personally, I’ve endured them all. There were various Sun-In incidents (and yes, I went from brassy orange to green on that trip), cranberry juice-fueled binges, at-home highlights (do not attempt at home!), henna, the time black did not look as cool as I thought it would, bleached blonde (also not as rad as in theory), and a million and one crazy-looking streaks in between. But there’s nothing so seductive as the pretty model with perfect hair on the front of that cardboard box filled with promise, even though we now realize, in this age of the airbrushing revolution, that her ‘do is as fake as the dye itself. For the past few years I’ve sworn off coloring my own hair, but as every professional colorist I’ve ever interviewed has asserted, color correction is their bread and butter. After the jump, The Frisky staffers share their own experiences with hair color. Keep reading »
Feeling a little … bearish? If you’re looking to get your fierce on, nothing says, “Come here, no, wait, go away!” like a bear trap necklace. This fully functional (but we hope not too functional) pendant comes in oxidized black or polished sterling silver on a 25-inch chain and is, online store Lost at E Minor claims, a “bane to miniature bears everywhere.” It’s not cheap — $240 — but at least you know you’ll be safe if a miniature bear (or something bigger) tries to take a bite out of you.
