You’ve Probably Never Heard Of H&M’s Next Big Collaborator

Swedish fashion giant H&M has done some pretty high profile collaborations in the past–Lanvin, Victor & Rolf and Stella McCartney, to name just a few. But you probably haven’t heard of their newest collaborator. Fashion blogger Elin Kling is “big in Sweden” but really hasn’t made a name for herself here. Still, she’s been plucked from the land of attractive blondes and high literacy rates to design the brand’s latest collaboration. Kling’s blog, Style By Kling, features tons of photos of Kling looking svelte and stylish. Most of the blog is in Swedish, so we can’t really tell you what, if anything, it’s about. Kling is known as one of Sweden’s leading fashion ladies. Sadly, we Americanos won’t be able to get our grubby mitts on her collection: It’s only available in Sweden. But perhaps some pieces will pop up on eBay? [Fashionista] Keep reading »

Phaedra Parks Plays A “Character” On “The Real Housewives Of Atlanta”

“What you see on the camera is a character, so I sometimes don’t feel it’s not actually who I am as a person off-camera. But at the end of the day, TV is for entertainment, and I think I come across as very entertaining and that’s what people want to see.”

Phaedra Parks, the true Southern belle on “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” actually admits to playing up the entertainment-factor on the hit reality show. [PopEater] Keep reading »

Show Us Your Most Stylish Teen Self!

The other day we saw a list of the 10 most stylish kids under 20. A lot of the usual suspects were on the list: actress Chloe Moretz, singer Willow Smith, and blogger Tavi Gevinson. These girls all have great style–but it helps that they have stylists, unending budgets and access to top designers to make it happen. We didn’t have that when we were teens, but still, we had pretty wild style when we were younger. Now it’s your turn to share. We want your teenage photos! Were you channeling Angela Chase? Were you a preppy gossip girl? A mallternative punk? We want to see it!

Send us a picture — with a description of what you’re wearing — that best encapsulates your teenage style, and we’ll include them in a giant Frisky reader fashion slideshow. Send your stylish teen images to me at Julie@TheFrisky.com. Keep reading »

Cross-Eyed Opossum Stole My Heart

As a new addition to Germany’s Leipzig Zoo, Heidi became an online celebrity the moment the world saw her face. [The Daily What] Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: Are “Chinese Mothers” Superior?

  • The Wall Street Journal ran a controversial op-ed by Yale Law professor Amy Chua about “Chinese mothers,” or more broadly, a sub-set of strict parents who expect excellence from their children and force them to both study and rehearse instruments for hours a day. “Chinese parents can get away with things that Western parents can’t. Once when I was young — maybe more than once — when I was extremely disrespectful to my mother, my father angrily called me ‘garbage’ in our native Hokkien dialect. It worked really well. I felt terrible and deeply ashamed of what I had done. But it didn’t damage my self-esteem or anything like that.” She continues to explain her own parenting style with her two young daughters. It’s though-provoking, to say the least. [Wall Street Journal]
  • A former investment banker told BusinessWeek all about his mail-order bride business called Hand-In-Hand which “pairs” women from Eastern European countries with American men. These ladies are “unspoiled by feminism,” said Joseph Weiner. “You take a beautiful woman from the Czech Republic and you bring her into your home, she does all your cooking and cleaning and ironing.” [NYmag.com]
