Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
“I’ve been reading The Frisky for a month or so (religiously!) and I thought this would be the place to get my questions answered. (You guys always seem to have the answers.) I’m getting married on Oct 31st of this year and want to know if it’s acceptable to wear a black wedding dress. I would pair it with an ivory shawl (in cashmere) with white pearls as accessories. Is this a fashion no-no? I just want something non-traditional and the bridal stores aren’t doing it for me. I’ve found this vintage black cocktail-type dress and hope that I can wear it! Thanks in advance!” – Melissa
Hey Melissa, what’s up? And welcome to The Frisky! Glad you’re here. I love your question because, personally, when it comes to fashion rules, I like to get all rebellious and say there are none. (Eh, OK, maybe just a few…) After the jump, let’s discuss whether a black dress can work for you on your wedding day or not. Keep reading »
Can you guess who hates their older brother? Loves wearing a bikini? Hates when girls don’t put out after you pay for a date? If you ever needed additional proof that you can’t judge a book by its cover, this interactive website will convince you. I have wasted waaay too much time today playing Haters + Lovers 20 Questions, a trivia game where you try to match pictures of people of all different colors and creeds with their particular loves/hates. When you click on their square, you see live footage of them revealing their thoughts. It’s seriously got me giddy—my best score so far was 12. Gotta run … I have another round to play.
Sometimes, pillow talk needs no words. At least not the ones you speak out loud. Perhaps that’s the view of artist Louise Bourgeois, who recently presented an installation at London’s Tate Modern, which featured a wood-paneled bedroom. The bed sported a red duvet and a pillowcase with the French words “Je t’aime.” The Tate then created saleable pillowcases based on the work, using beautiful cream cotton to embroider the red phrase where you lay your head. Another variety has “Je t’aime” screen-printed in repetition. In short: we aime it. [$40.37, Tate Modern]

The Baby Phat fashionista and her daughters took a break from their shopping spree to vogue it out. Work it girls! [West Hollywood, 9/2/09] Keep reading »
We all know Megan Fox rambles A LOT, but we didn’t know why until now. Today, Fox said that she’s struggled with mental health problems since she was young, and she is convinced she shows symptoms of schizophrenia. How was she able to diagnose herself? By reading every book ever written about Marilyn Monroe—who incidentally did not have schizophrenia. She told Wonderland magazine, “I could end up like [Marilyn] because I constantly struggle with the idea that I think I’m a borderline personality—or that I have bouts of mild schizophrenia. I definitely have some kind of mental problem and I haven’t pinpointed what it is.” [Yahoo] Well, at least she knows there’s a problem and it’s more serious than a pair of toe thumbs. But does Megan know that schizophrenia doesn’t happen in bouts? Does she even know what it is at all? Megan, please seek professional help before deciding on a diagnosis! After the jump, a few more celebrities that have been vocal about their struggles with mental illness.
Famed fashion photog Steven Meisel clearly had a busy summer. A quick scan of the top fashion books this month reveals that he’s shot covers and fashion stories for a laundry list of international publications from Vogue Italia to W Magazine. We can now add campaigns to the list, like this new campaign starring Balenciaga veteran Jennifer Connelly. The brunette beauty dips, flexes and bends it like Beckham in Balenciaga‘s luxe finery. (Please spare a few minutes to take in the towering glamazon heels.) Everything about these shots is perfect: the kinetic clothes which range from subdued wools to metallic silks; the bold hair and makeup which lends an air of haphazard chic; and even the set comprised of pricey antique furniture strewn helter-skelter. Oddly, that the only element that doesn’t work so well is Connelly herself. Beautiful though she is, am I the only one that finds her a lackluster choice–literally–for a starring role in a haute fashion campaign? [Fashionologie]

And I thought those heel-less high heels presented enough of a fashion challenge. Now I have to paint myself green this season? Mon Dieu! In this très bizarre fashion story for Pop magazine’s fall/winter issue, model Kinga Rajzak dons psychedelic rainbow hair, a balloon shrug, and aquamarine body paint. Frisky style editor Erin loves the lavender-and-white hair, while I prefer the green-and-red ‘do. The two-tone Miu Miu heels, shimmery Gucci jumpsuit, and turquoise Hussein Chalayan body armor are awesome, but I don’t know if I’ll be turning aquamarine anytime soon. Get an eyeful after the jump!

Remember when we called attention to the fact that AgencySpy was very against the idea of 17-year-old rock/model spawn Georgia Jagger and her topless Hudson Jeans campaign? (Ah, like it was yesterday.) Now there’s a very, well, “erotic” might be the best way of putting it, video making the rounds that is extremely humorous if you love to make fun of kooky fashion ads and, well, let’s just say it’s controversial in other ways too. Check it out and let’s discuss immediately. Keep reading »
Now that summer is coming to an end, we can completely focus on fall fashion, which means it’s time to bring out the plaid. Besides madras, plaid is, for the most part, a cold weather staple. Not everyone feels the need to swaddle themselves in plaid the way I do. So, if you’re tartan-shy, introduce the quintessential fall fabric into your wardrobe in small doses. We recommend starting with your shoes.
