J.Crew is always styling their catalog models in skirts with tank tops, cardigans, and a belt on the outside. This girl must have seen one of their catalogs and thought, “that belt thing is something, but I only wear neutral colors — no plaid or poppy red for me.” [Trender Bender] Keep reading »
During last night’s surprise appearance by Barack Obama at the third night of the Democratic National Convention, we totally did a double-take when we saw the dashing Senator from Illinois plant a big one on Jill Biden, the wife of his running mate, Joe Biden. Was it on purpose and platonic mouth kisses are suddenly the new show of affection in Washington, or was it an accident? Who knows, but certainly the accidental mouth kiss is something we’ve all endured… Keep reading »
In her 90210 rise to stardom, Shannen Doherty had it all — fame, fortune, and the most glamorous bitch face on television. Over a decade later, we’re genuinely surprised Shannen isn’t still in the public eye or happily hitched to some billionaire with a pompadour. But after being a brat and leaving the show that made her a household name, she’s still magically managed to keep her career afloat (though on life support) with made-for-TV movies and shows like Charmed. And now that she’s signed on to the new 90210, Shannen is poised again for serious stardom. So how can she take her life to the next level now that she’s suddenly gone from D-list to C-list? We here at The Frisky have some ideas to put this bitch back on magazine covers!

Autumn is my favorite season because, let’s face it, you have more clothing options in the next few months than you do the rest of the year. You can wear more than one layer without perspiring your weight in sweat but you don’t have to bundle up to protect against frostbite. You can wear some of your spring and summer clothes. You can wear some of your winter clothes. And you can start wearing corduroy, aka denim’s more sensitive first cousin and velvet’s more casual brother. Here are 10 items made from corde du roi, or “rope of the king,” as it was known back in the day. Keep reading »
The gym I belong to (notice I didn’t say “work out at”) isn’t the kind of place where beefcake-like men make primal-sounding noises as they hoist barbells above their heads. If it were that kind of place, I wouldn’t even be a member, because grunting guys would be in control. Need a five-pound weight? Too bad, a red-faced guy is standing in the way and might attack. With lizards, it’s the same. According to a new study, some lizards do morning and evening push-up routines as a show of their strength and to mark their territory. “As in humans, if an anole can do many of these push-ups, it shows that he is in prime physical condition,” said researcher Terry J. Ord. “These displays of strength help avert actual physical confrontations between male lizards, which can be very fierce and destructive.” So, by faking toughness, lizards (and guys) get in fewer fights. If you’re a total wimp but don’t want people beating up on you, start grunting at the gym. [LiveScience]

California just legalized gay marriage, but they might need to explicitly legalize gay slogan t-shirts too. Lapriss Gilbert, 31, was booted from the Social Security office in Van Nuys by a security guard who claimed he wasn’t allowed to let her in the government building because of her “Lesbian.com” t-shirt. Gilbert, who was simply there to pick up her son’s card, was threatened with arrest if she didn’t leave the premises. While Gilbert may have walked away quietly, she is speaking up for herself! “As an African-American and a lesbian, I haven’t been through one day without facing some sort of discrimination … but this is just shocking,” she told reporters. So, after the incident, she immediately did what any woman would do — she called her mom. Tanya Gilbert, a long time gay rights activist, got so upset by her daughter’s story, she immediately phoned in the LAPD on the “rent-a-cop” guard from the private company, Paragon, hired by Homeland Security. Luckily, before the four city police officers and a federal agent arrived, a fellow Paragon security guard saw the error of their ways and the officer escorted Lapriss Gilbert in. Even the ACLU is surprised — Peter Eliasberg, an attorney for the organization, said, “I haven’t seen this type of blatant discrimination in a federal office building before.” Guess that’s the good news. But the Gilberts are planning on filing a lawsuit against Paragon Security for their discrimination so this doesn’t ever happen again. [Daily News]

Yesterday was Tom Ford’s birthday, you know the American fashion designer that successfully revamped Gucci? To celebrate, we put together a few iconic Gucci looks, but since we can’t afford the real thing, these picks are just as chic and a lot less expensive. Remember when Madonna wore the first outfit to the MTV Video Music Awards in 1995? Or Gwyneth Paltrow at the 1996 VMAs? And since Ford is no longer with Gucci we recreated a look from his last collection, Fall 2004. Keep reading »
