The Gossip’s chanteuse Beth Ditto let Superdoll Collectibles give her the Barbie treatment to promote her line for Evans, a plus-sized clothing chain in the UK—and here she is!
We’re psyched the Beth doll will be stage-diving at a rock show while Barbie’s back at the Dream House, doing her nails and mooning over Ken. But it’s rather annoying that Beth-the-Doll is a slimmed-down version of Beth-the-Singer. Real life Beth has belly rolls and wears wackadoo kabuki makeup; she doesn’t have pristine skin or sexy Barbie doe eyes.
As Big Fat Deal put it, “Beth Ditto’s supposed dolly doppelganger has all of her thigh dimples lipo’d away. So close and yet, so far.” We’re not saying the doll’s got to have cellulite—although that would make us feel better about ours. It’s just that the doll Beth looks, well. plastic.

I love a bargain, and I try not to pay full price for anything that goes on my body or hangs from the crook of my arm. So, the day Amelia invited me to join Gilt Groupe, a members-only, designer sample sale website, was one of the best days of my life. How did I, a woman who prides herself on being able to find a bargain in a haystack or jumbled Loehmann’s rack, not know about it? I pondered this question for about a half-second because you have to be fast on Gilt to beat the other 999,999 members. Some people probably wonder why (and how) Gilt is causing such a frenzy, especially in a recession. But I’d ask those same people: Why not? Keep reading »

Carla Bruni has flipped more than her hair. A computer containing private photos of France’s First Lady has been stolen. Apparently, the pics are from the oh-so-sexy years she spent with her baby daddy, philosopher Raphael Enthoven. Other hot shots of the former supermodel/singer have surfaced from that period, and there were plenty of nudies. So, it’s no wonder Carla and hubby French President Nicholas Sarkozy are on pins and needles over the whereabouts of that purloined PC containing even more secret pics. What could be in those precious snapshots? We Frisky gals have a couple ideas. Keep reading »

Way back in the summer of 2007, Women’s Wear Daily profiled up-and-comer Lady Gaga, who was performing at Lollapalooza (check out these photos from her performance). Even then, the girl had a penchant for pants-lessness. She was cited for biking to a show in inappropriate hot pants, aka “not pants.” But other parts of Gaga’s look have undergone a transformation. In December, she told People that she wants her ensembles to be displayed in a museum. “My intention is to one day have the Lady Gaga exhibit at the [Museum of Modern Art]. Now I can have beautiful origami dresses made instead of gluing mirrors to a $3 bra from Conway.” My, how the Lady hath changed. Keep reading »
