This holiday season you’re going to be treated to more than drool-worthy footwear when you enter a Nine West store. The fashion footwear giant has teamed up with the world-famous and iconic Radio City Rockettes for the Rock the Holidays campaign. The Rockettes will be featured in 160 stores across the U.S. and on NineWest.com, wearing “The Jemster” shoe, a peep-toe style decorated with large rhinestones on top, and a dazzling performance costume covered in Swarovski crystals. Plus, one lucky woman will win a trip to NYC, VIP tickets to the Radio City Christmas Spectacular, a backstage tour, and a customized Nine West shoe package. (Enter here.) Having worn a pair of “The Jemster,” learned The Rockettes’ famous high-kick, and seen the Radio City Christmas Spectacular, I can attest that this is an awesome prize, especially since there are few places that have the same energy as NYC during the holidays. Check out more photos from the Nine West Rock the Holidays campaign, including one of me doing the high-kick (which is a lot harder than it looks) with The Rockettes, after the jump. Keep reading »
Love this clip of Jessica Simpson on “The Early Show” as she crafts the fictional narrative of her life, I mean promotes her new Christmas album. We can see that pregnancy face from a mile away, Jess. That ain’t no flu. That’s the look of a woman with morning sickness. And the “don’t smell my breath” business isn’t helping. Also, it wasn’t a total surprise when Eric Johnson proposed to her. He had it planned forever. It had nothing to do with Nick Lachey getting engaged the week before or, you know, a pregnancy. And that vintage, ruby Tiffany ring from 1910? Eric’s idea as well. He picked it out and paid for it. As we speak, pigs are flying out of my butt. We’re making bets here at The Frisky about when she’ll make the pregnancy announcement. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
It’s a time-honored Thanksgiving tradition, on par with stuffing a turkey and baking pumpkin pie: Thanksgiving day television marathons. This Thursday, you can watch 15 hours of “Burn Notice” on USA, an entire day of “I Dream of Jeannie” and “Bewitched” on TV Land, 12 James Bond movies on Syfy, or six “Beverly Hills, 90210” holiday episodes on SoapNet. What else will you want to watch this week? Previews and details after the jump.

The “Who Killed Nancy?” crocheted dolls by artist Shove Mink are adorably macabre. The perfect gift for that co-dependent couple. Or just a fun way to teach the kids about the dangers of drugs? You decide. [The Daily What] Keep reading »
Artist Marjorie Strider’s comically pornographic “Woman with Radish,” made in 1963, was an unusual contribution to Pop Art — it was a feminist one. She subverted the often ridiculously over-sexual, pinup-inspired graphics in commercial graphic art of this era by addressing such objectification in her own art. The eyelashes and radish (above) are sculpted out of wood and jump out of the painting, to further “tempt” viewers with their tactile lusciousness. Her point was kind of revolutionary at the time: How silly is it to sexualize women to this degree or to sexualize a radish, in order to sell an idea or a product? Keep reading »
