Leave it to America’s favorite trendsetter, Michelle Obama, to remind us about versatility and resourcefulness. This week, the First Lady showed up to a White House event looking like she had lopped off her hair. Turns out, she didn’t cut an inch, but fooled everyone with a fake bob style. A wonderful way to mix things up for long-locked ladies, or to test-drive a short haircut, the ‘do is easy to achieve, and even looks good when it’s not perfect and a bit messy. Here’s how to do it.

A feminist “wish list” on Bitch Magazine‘s blog (via Daily Kos) caught our eye recently. These smarties used their noggins to figure out what feminists should focus on in the next couple decades, like not blaming the victim, ever, and supporting both stay-at-home moms and working moms.
They’ve inspired us to put together our own wish list of what would make us leap into the streets and do the happy dance. The top 25 items on our feminist wish list are after the jump. We can dream, can’t we? Keep reading »
Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart couldn’t hide their nerd love at a ComicCon conference for “Twilight: New Moon.” Girl, if he still wants to bone you, despite the mullet, you know it’s L-O-V-E. [San Diego, 7/24/09] Keep reading »
I love Lil’ Kim and am happy she’s having a comeback as I predicted she would. But there’s no excuse for this birthday “outfit” she wore to her party at the club Mansion. I thought she had given up wearing lingerie — a teddy and a loincloth — in public in favor of more age- and occasion-appropriate attire. [South Beach, Miami, 7/24/09] Keep reading »
This week, I got a letter from a lady who is wondering if she can let her date play Moses and part the Red Sea.
“I have recently been flirting with an old hookup and we have both been hinting at wanting to rekindle the affair. We live in different cities, and he is coming to visit this weekend and I have a suspicion that we’ll be having sex. Unfortunately, my period is due to come on Friday! How do I go about having sex during my period without getting everything messy and/or grossing both of us out? I read that you can have sex while wearing the Instead Cup, so I’m totally on that one and hope it works!” —

Can we raise our hands for too much? We’re all about taking fashion risks here at The Frisky, but like the legendary soap opera, they must be bold and beautiful. What Rihanna is giving us here feels a touch sloppy. She rocked London at the “Inglourious Basterds” premiere with what was otherwise a pretty tasteful and well-put-together outfit (Alexander McQueen thankyouverymuch), but we’re not sure if the pearls take the whole moment overboard. Are you loving the multi-layered look or was this just over the top for you? [Just Jared] Keep reading »
Former first daughter Jenna Bush has gone over to the
dark darker side. Her new brunette ‘do is a big difference from her famously blond locks. Now, we have a few theories as to why she would go there: to curate a more mysterious look, to stand out from her sister, for a change after her recent wedding. Most likely, she read our insanely popular post, “10 Reasons Why Being A Brunette Is Awesome.” Whatever the reason, we like. You? Keep reading »
No, we’re not referring to all those dresses and tops and pants you have laying on your bedroom floor—more like a designer piece that’s actually supposed to be there. The “Fashion Underfoot II” rug capsule collection for Elson & Company is designed in partnership with the CFDA and a long list of celebrated designers including Thakoon (that’s his handiwork, at left!), Oscar de la Renta, Marchesa, Francisco Costa for Calvin Klein Home, Doo Ri, Cynthia Rowley, Lily Pulitzer, Tory Burch and Peter Som. They custom-designed a carpet that was then hand-woven with Himilayan wool by a team of master artisans in Nepal. And the best part? Ten percent of the proceeds will benefit Fashion Targets Breast Cancer, a CFDA initiative that’s supporting women with breast cancer and has raised more than $40 million for the cause since 1994. If you’re looking to make a purchase, check out AM Collections. [Elson & Company] Keep reading »
It’s a vicious cycle: You wear your new super hot, strappy high heels and the next day your feet look like they’ve been in the boxing ring. Then, the only way to wear your shoes again is to protect your wounds with band-aids that slip out of place, or you end up taking them off anyhow because they’re so unsightly and you’re wincing every time you take a step. Problem solved thanks to Nexcare Clear First Aid Tape. Just place over blisters, and no one (save for foot fetishists) will notice.
Unfortunately, we can’t take credit for this genius fashion fix. Rather, it arrived via our friends at Teen Vogue who found the solution. We were so enthusiastic that we had to share the good news. Sometimes the most amazing insider fashion secrets hardly cost you anything. [$2.49, Drugstore.com via Teen Vogue] Keep reading »
A group of people in New York finally give us all a good reason to run around in our underwear. Not only is it fun, but the 500-person panty-run going on tonight in NY’s Central Park has a purpose! If all 500 runners drop trough tonight, they will officially break the world record for the “largest gathering of people wearing underpants” currently held by the 146 English men who depants-ed last month. Runners who finish the 1.7 mile run, appropriately led by NY mayor candidate, The Naked Cowboy, will win a pair of boxers, further encouraging their undie exercise. But for some athletes in tonight’s run, not only are they breaking a world record, they are also warming up for the Nautica NYC Triathlon happening on Sunday. [Huffington Post]
This undie-run is a pretty fantastic world record goal, but I think Frisky readers can do better!
