I’m not into polishes that sparkle and shine. My nails are super short (sorry, I’m terrible and I bite ‘em), so I want a polish that minimizes, rather than emphasizes, the damage I’ve done. Enter designer Jason Wu’s collaboration with CND nail polish. He’s created four matte-ish colors ranging from a shocking glam red to a muted neutral purple (it’s called Brigitte, of course!). When I applied, the nail polish dried flattish, but had a neat dimensionality that made it appear unique in different lights. When you want polish that lets you shine, Wu’s where it’s at.

I was really feeling Kelly Osbourne‘s retro dress and hat combination and the Rebecca Minkoff “Boyfriend” bag. But that was until I scrolled down to the socks. Why, why, why? The dress already hits her in an awkward place, and the ankle socks cut her off even more. I’m not even going to discuss the shoes. Keep reading »
Lil Jon is creative, Meatloaf is a dynamo, and Jon Rich has the ethical constitution of an ox. Much respect, but none of them is my favorite cast member of “Celebrity Apprentice” this season. The person I am most excited to see each Sunday is Jack Jason, the hands and voice of Marlee Matlin. I like Marlee too, but it’s hard to tell where the actress begins and her long-time interpreter ends. A couple of weeks ago, Jack shed tears as Marlee won the challenge that earned her charity $1 million. Awww. And this week, he had the decency to refuse to translate her dirty language. What a gentleman. In a situation that breeds pure insanity, Jack is like the eye of the hurricane, the innocent bystander. Side note: I wonder how he interpreted the things Gary Busey said before he was fired. I can hardly understand them myself. If anyone “got” Gary’s story about the kite, please explain. Anyhow, a big thumbs up to Jack Jason, the international sign for “keep up the good work.” [Dlisted] Keep reading »
The tulle, the ruffles, the lace and silk … prom dresses, and the impending prom night, are supposed to be one of the fondest memories of high school. I never tripped on prom much — mostly because I was dating a 24-year-old during senior prom time and bringing him to the school dance seemed like it might involve incurring statutory rape charges. But c’est la vie! You guys delivered big when it came to prom style. After the jump, check out our spectacular collection of Frisky reader prom pics!
Isaiah Mustafa, we hardly knew you! There’s a new Old Spice guy in town now and he is immediately less impressive than the old Old Spice guy because, well, he doesn’t have a ripped body and isn’t wrapped in only a towel. Lame, Old Spice. You cannot get us hooked on a hot piece of man meat and then rip it away like that. Who is this new guy? Why is he fully clothed? And most importantly, is he going to film a personalized TV spot for us like Isaiah did?!?! This commercial for the brand’s Danger Zone line is funny, but I miss “Hello ladies.” [Ad Week] Keep reading »
Score one for the ladies … I think? The venerable Nathan’s hot dog eating contest, held each year on the 4th of July, is now adding a women’s-only division. Women only comprise two of the world’s top 10 competitive eaters. The Major League Eating organization — yes, that actually exists — thinks the ladies should have to compete against each other at the annual International Hot Dog Eating Contest at Nathan’s Famous on Coney Island, not the eight other men. “Serena Williams didn’t have to beat Roger Federer to win the Wimbledon title, and we don’t think Sonya Thomas (‘The Black Widow’) should have to beat Joey Chestnut,” said Richard Shea, the MLE’s president. Sure, why not? Hooray for feminism! We’ve broken the ketchup ceiling! We can take on anything! [NY Post] Keep reading »
