Hey, so you know how last week we were all, “Yippee! ‘Saturday Night Live’ has added two new lady cast members!”? Well today, I’m all, “Oh crap, they fired Casey Wilson and Michaela Watson?” Broadsheet wonders, “Does ‘SNL’ have a lady quota?” Good question. Keep reading »
Any lass who’s dipped her toes into the online dating waters knows after two days all the messages (and the dudes who wrote them) blur together. Newsflash: saying “Hey, I love ‘The Office’ too!’ doesn’t woo the ladies, guys.
But do you know what really peaks the interest and prompts a woman to respond? For OKCupid, it’s messages that contain the words “zombie,” “tattoo,” and “piercing.” Keep reading »
At the Diesel Jeans store in Paris, a new window display shows a female doll holding a very multicultural group of shirtless male dolls on leashes like slaves. Behind her, a slogan reads, “Women make the world go round.” This suggestion aims to put women on top, but does it? It sure is funny and eye-catching, but potentially has a negative and offensive subtext. Diesel’s advertorial agenda seems to read more like “Women’s money makes the world go round.”
What do you think? Hilarious or just too weird? [IPreferParis.net] Keep reading »

Perhaps you’ve noticed the absence of my column, “Sex & the Show Me State,” here at The Frisky over the last few months. Or maybe you haven’t. For the sake of my ego, I don’t really want to know. What you may want to know, however, is why I’ve been absent. The simple answer is that it’s really hard to write a column about sex when you’re not having any. The more complicated answer—though, admittedly, an easier cop-out—is that my city is to blame. Keep reading »
Model Crystal Renn appeared on “Good Morning America” this morning to promote her book, Hungry: A Young Model’s Story of Appetite, Ambition, and the Ultimate Embrace of Curves. Crystal was discovered by a model scout as a teen in Clinton, MS, and was told she could be a supermodel. But there was a catch: She would need to lose 70 pounds off her 5’9″ frame first. She did and got a $250,000 contract.
But after starving herself for years, Crystal decided she didn’t want to abuse her body anymore and decided to let it be the way it wanted to be, which was a size 12. While this isn’t the usual size fashion models come in, Crystal says she has been more successful since being true to herself, appearing on the cover of four international editions of Vogue, in various ad campaigns, and on the runway for Vena Cava, Heatherette, and Jean-Paul Gaultier. We’re not models, but her message is one we should all heed: Be yourself and you’ll get farther in life. Aww … [GMA] Keep reading »
We love fashion editor and street style blogger Caroline Blomst’s great eye and chic looks. In addition to blogging at Caroline’s Mode and co-running StockholmStreetStyle, she models her latest outfits online for our inspiration. We adore her latest find, this gold stud clutch from Gina Tricot. But if you’re looking for something you don’t have to travel to Sweden to score, our Catherine suggests the Kettle black leather stud clutch for $97 or the Melie Bianco stud clutch for $57.

Hear Ye: Come October, head turner Lady Gaga will put out a set of fashion earphones for the Beats by Dr. Dre line (which, by the way, claim to be the “most advanced headphones ever developed”). Among all the celeb denim and large-chain diffusion lines, this is definitely one of the more unusual star fashion forays. Then again, you wouldn’t quite expect Gaga to put out a collection of separates for Wal-Mart. (Or would she? For the irony?)
Called Heartbeats, the line of futuristic, typically-Gaga designs feature triangular metallic charms on the outside of the earbuds, which are meant to double as flashy jewelry. On the cords: a fastening with her autograph. We see how die-hard fans might be pumped to drop the $100-$150 price to get closer to Gaga’s music. Where things get weird, however, is the press release, which is so corny it reads like a De Beers commercial. Says LG: “In the deepest hour of the night, I confess to myself three things; I would die if I was forbidden to write, forbidden to love, or forbidden to fashion…Wear Heartbeats, love each other, and celebrate the art and lifestyle of music.”
So, how does Heartbeats sound to you? Check out a few more images after the jump. [BeatsByDre.com via TrendHunter] Keep reading »
Ah, men. Really, they can fetishize anything: feet, hair, derrieres, cars, sneakers. You name it, there’s a guy out there who joneses for it. Now, there’s a blog just for men who are really into hot chicks picking up dog poop. Somewhere out there, a guy has spent his entire life dreaming of a catalog of celebrities and other random good-looking women bending over, crouching down, and hunkering about to pick up their pooch’s doo-doo with plastic bags, tiny shovels, and the like, and his lucky day has arrived. The glamorous stars of HCPUDS include Gisele Bundchen, Maria Bello, and Leighton Meester. What’s next — a book deal followed by “HCPUDS: The Movie”? Keep reading »
