Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
For the man on a Missoni: Converse, the iconic old-school kicks, are about to get a major designer upgrade thanks to a collaboration with Missoni. The collection, “Premium Chuck Hi Missoni” for Spring 2010 takes the basic hi-top and slaps the classic zig-zag print on them to create two varieties—one with black laces and purple-grey material, the other with white laces and an earthier pink-brown combo. The news leaked when Tai Missoni spotted wearing a pre-released pair. Now, when will we get the ladies’ version, please? [HighSnobette, WWD]

Prince William and Prince Harry, or as the U.K. Daily Express calls them, “Baldy and Ginger,” are doing flight training together in Shropshire, which sounds suspiciously like “Hobbit” territory to me. William is training to become a search and rescue pilot, while Harry will fly attack helicopters and recently spent ten weeks serving in Afghanistan. The two are now roommates for what Harry calls, “the first and last time we will be living together.” [Hello Magazine]
Of course, being hot young princeys, they’re always up to no good and enjoy many topless pillow fights. No, but seriously, how cute is it that they have to live together and take care of each other and give each other sponge baths? Okay, so I’m being wildly inappropriate, but here are their latest royal ramblings on the subject. Keep reading »

I remember a few years ago when I was an intern at New York magazine, I helped Vanessa Grigoriadis on an article about NYC families with only children.

Step #1 Start with sorta dirty hair (unwashed hair is the key to pretty much every up-’do because the second-day oil equal major texture and lots for hair pins to cling on to). If you’ve got stick straight hair, drag out the curling iron (or curl your hair in rollers if you got ‘em) and wind random sections around the barrel of a one inch or larger iron. The more haphazard the better. Keep clicking for more faux-bobs and additional instructions.
Oh, but there are so many other annoying personalities we wish we could vote off TV, the internet, and tabloids. Here’s who we’d get rid of without a second thought.
We’re willing to look past Federer’s lovely looks and mad tennis skills for a moment and acknowledge that, yes, the military-inspired, Broadway-ready outfit may not have been the most amazing choice. But when it comes down to it, we’ve seen a hell of a lot worse. Check out far more offensive tennis court missteps after the jump.
Around The Frisky office, I get mocked for being mildly obsessed with Harry Potter. Sure, the series isn’t as sexy as vampire stories like “True Blood” or “Twilight,” but Harry’s glasses turn me on. Needless to say, I am excited to watch “Harry Potter the Musical,” a parody created by Potter fans, while I await the July 15 release of “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.” [via Flavorwire] Keep reading »
