Too bad we’re so darn big. We hear Marc Jacobs is launching what is sure to be the most awww-worthy swimwear collection for kids ever via his line, Little Marc. The reasonably priced goods for boys and girls will feature colorful cartoon graphics like fish kissing. Luckily, we’re not too envious, considering Marc put out a line of suits just this year for the grown-up ladies that we already love. The American designer is sure on a roll, considering his last recent announcement regarding a capsule collection geared towards teens, and now his bathing suits for tots. One thing’s for sure: Now we have a cute go-to gift for all the teensy nieces and nephews in our lives.
Okay, maybe we’re just a bit resentful that we weren’t such stylish kids. [Flypaper.bluefly.com and WWD, subscription only]

Uh oh! People are talking smack about my favorite smack-talking New York City housewife, Bethenny Frankel! Yesterday it was announced that Frankel would be ending her ties with the “Housewives” franchise to star in her own reality series called “Skinny & The City.” “Housewives” fans rejoiced because Bethenny––the most tolerable character who we totally adore–– is not a housewife and it’s about time she starred in something more up her alley. While I was getting all giddy with excitement at my desk, Tanya Zuckerbrot, founder of SkinnyAndTheCity.com, was busy on the phone with her lawyers to discuss legal actions against Frankel.

Samantha Ronson had lunch with her ex-girlfriend Lindsay Lohan yesterday and it appears that SamRo left LiLo hanging on a high five. We’re still worried that despite the threatened restraining order and other public drama, Ronson still might take her back. Sammy, listen to us, she’s an actress! Don’t fall for her schtick, again. We D.A.R.E. you. [Hollywood, 7/16/09] Keep reading »
Everyone at The Frisky is a hardcore music lover and our tastes range from Taylor Swift and M.I.A. to Sleater-Kinney and Jenny Owens Young. Perhaps the only time we were more passionate about music was when we were in our teens and dreamed of starting a band. Jessica Hopper knows all about that teenage desire to rock and has written The Girls’ Guide to Rocking, giving teen girls today what we would have killed for back in the day. The book promises to teach readers “how to start a band, book gigs, and get rolling to rock stardom.” Keep reading »
RJ Cutler’s Vogue documentary, “The September Issue,” comes out in New York at the end of August (when the Sept. 2009 issue will be hitting newsstands). After watching the trailer last month, we’ve been obsessed with Anna Wintour’s clever, biting style of criticism and can’t wait to hear more along the lines of, “This type seems so large and pretentious. It looks like it’s for blind people.” Until then, we’ll settle for these new ringtones. While Anna would never in a million years call us, the “Anna Wintour’s office” ring makes it sounds like her people are calling us! We’ve never felt so important in our lives.

It looks like the gorgeous and uber-talented Emma Watson will not be forever typecast as Hermione Granger. Her next role will be in a musical version of “Cinderella” with (dun dun dun) Marilyn Manson! Manson will be the producing the film, but there’s no word on the director yet. Watson will be singing and acting in the flick, which will be her first film outside of “Harry Potter.” Because I’m not counting the TV movie “Ballet Shoes” or “Tales of Despereaux.”
Doesn’t this sound like it should be a Tim Burton movie? I’m hoping Manson will be playing the evil stepmother and not the prince, ’cause if Emma gets taken under Manson’s spell and goes goth like Evan Rachel Wood, I’ll be heartbroken! Stay strong Emma! Resist the patent leather! [NY Daily News] Keep reading »
When Kathy L. Patrick got laid off from her job, she opened Beauty and the Book, a combination beauty salon/bookstore. Shortly after, she started The Pulpwood Queens of East Texas, a raucous reading group that requires its members to wear a tiara, hot pink, and leopard print outfits (and now has chapters around the country). This part-autobiography, part-advice book, part-reading list will remind you that good things can come after crappy life events — and that a little silliness goes a long way. [$11.89, Amazon]
We’re giving away five copies of The Pulpwood Queens’ Tiara-Wearing, Book-Sharing Guide To Life, but you have to work if you want one. The five best commenters for this coming week — from today, Friday, July 17 through Thursday, July 23 — will be awarded with one. So, be as clever, smart, and original as you can!

I knew it had been way too long since she last changed it up. Check Rihanna out, or should I say, check it out—the new mop-top, completely shaved sides, mohawk-esque ‘do. If you ask me, there’s only one person right now who pulls off the whole shaved half-head trend and it’s this lady, above. It just works—the avant-garde fashion, the shades, the what-the-eff-you-looking-at-beyotch look. Love everything. Especially, when we are all inundated with perfectly turned out stars with their perfect-mussed-up beach curls and perfect Rachel Zoe-styled red carpet clothes. She’s real. (And, speaking of, how great would the hair look paired with some super frothy, ethereal dress—a very yin and yang juxtaposition.) What say you? Keep reading »
Jon and Kate Gosselin announced their split less than a month ago, and Jon certainly didn’t waste any time getting with a new girl. Meanwhile, Kate continues to wear her wedding band. Is Jon cruel for moving on so fast, or is Kate just slow at accepting the fact that her marriage is over? This got us thinking about our rules for rebounding the right way. Keep reading »
While many fear that America is falling out of the marriage habit, and that, these days, all is bad in love and more, new stats show otherwise. Supposedly, 86% of women marry by age forty. This says something, considering that a 20-year-old article in Newsweek declared that “a 40-year-old single woman had a better chance of being killed by a terrorist than getting married.” Ouch.
