Fashion blogger Sara Zucker is a woman on a mission — for both great grilled cheese AND incredible fashion. Zucker runs her eponymous blog SaraZucker.com, which has been featured in Lucky magazine, she’s written for a slew of great style publications, and she was kind enough to talk to The Frisky about some of her favorite inspirations right now.
“It’s all about the men in my life,” she tells us. “That is, the men that inspire my wardrobe choices on a daily basis. I’d like to think of myself as a fairly strong, independent, single woman, but it has to be said that my personal style is all about the testosterone. Think wide-brimmed hats, fatigue, neutrals, clean lines and no frills. So who are these men that play such a huge part in my life?”
After the jump, Sara’s top five fashion man-spirations. Keep reading »
Why Vogue scored Angelina Jolie for their December 2010 cover and then photographed her in this awkward pose I do not understand. She looks good; I just don’t get the whole exposed bustier with weird shadowing thing. In any case, the woman has a movie to promote, and that is “The Tourist,” in which she costars with Johnny Depp. In the profile, she reveals that love-mate Brad Pitt is “extremely handsome and the most sexy,” her first son Maddox basically raised her, and tomboy daughter Shiloh recently found a dead bird and asked if she could keep it as a pet. Your daily dose of Brangelina has now been sated. [Daily Mail] Keep reading »
I’m not sure what I was expecting, exactly, but last night’s CMA Awards were kinda snoozy. Miranda Lambert and Brad Paisley won lots of awards. Taylor Swift
was her usual “aww shucks” self. And the camera kept pointing to Keith Urban with Nicole Kidman at his side. But there were two performances that stood out. First, Gwyneth Paltrow
put down the goop and picked up a guitar to perform “Country Strong,” the title track from her upcoming movie of the same name. And she was surprisingly good—interesting, since we all know that singing in a movie often nets a star an Oscar
. We’ll think of this as a warm-up for her appearance on “Glee
,” when she’ll do a mash-up of “Singin’ in the Rain” and Rihanna’s “Umbrella.” Keep reading »
I don’t know what I was reading lately that reminded me of Mary Kay, the direct sales cosmetics company, but it brought me back to a teenage memory of the worst makeover I’ve ever gotten — and I gave it to myself.

Spiked heels aren’t enough for you? Try these vicious pumps from designer Barbara Gongini. They’re spiked on the toes and the backs of the heels. But if you’re looking to maul someone with these babies, you’re out of luck. The shoe is made of rubber and therefore mostly harmless. There is one place they’ll wound you, though — in the pocketbook. These 5 and a 1/2-inch heels are $398. [I Don't Like Mondays] Keep reading »
“In a way, I think it made it easier—going through the journey of not only making ['Brokeback Mounatin'] but then the response of the audiences brought us all very close. That’s a very tight-knit group that remains so to this day. But ['Love and Other Drugs' director] Ed [Zwick] took it to another level here. We worked for 8 days on ‘Brokeback Mountain’ and this was months. Beyond that, it’s our love story in this movie. … Sometimes there’s just chemistry between people. I remember vibing with [Anne] since the minute we started working. Not only as actors but intellectually, too. We all kind of had this weird intellectual orgy.”
—Jake Gyllenhaal speaks at the “Love and Other Drugs” press conference about reuniting with Anne Hathaway, and how having a history with her made it easier to do the difficult and often naked scenes in the flick. We know he’s pretending to date Taylor Swift and she has some kind of boring boyfriend, but are we alone in wanting these two to get together in real life?
