- We love clear accessories, but this Chanel bag is ridiculous. [My Fashion Life]
- Lindsay Lohan’s self-tanner, Sevin Nyne, debuts next month and counts caramel, sugar, coconut, Chardonnay and goji berries amongst the ingredients. So if it doesn’t turn you Lilo Orange, at the very least you can expect to smell like one very weird bag of groceries. [Daily Mail]
- Rumor has it, Vogue‘s editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour, actually shook hands with the vice president of PETA, who has lobbed red paint and eggs at her and her fur-wearing ways for years. Is the end of the Israel-Palestine conflict next? [NY Post]
March is National Women’s History Month, and we’re celebrating by sharing a lady we admire each weekday.

I was just, um, checking missed connections on Craigslist (a favorite hobby of mine) and came across this random request for advice. This guy is having dinner with a former girlfriend tonight, and he wants to sleep with her but doesn’t know how to let her know he’d like to have sex but doesn’t want to get back together. “I jsut [sic] want to make sure I’m not sending her mixed messages or something, as I would not want to make it hard or confusing for her.” How kind of sweet that he’s being honest about his intentions and acting totally concerned about leading her on. Why do men like this only exist on the internet?! Hopefully he’s not using this to attract women who think he’s a nice guy though. That would be kind of genius. If you have advice for him, email him. And let us know if he tries to pick you up. Keep reading »
Today The Frisky staff got to talking about male and female bosses and what happens when women hold management positions compared to when men do. The discussion started because career writer Penelope Trunk asked the question, “When women get power at work, do they use it like men do?” but she didn’t answer it.
The old, blond hair whipping Britney is back and she wants you to find some chick named Amy. Not sure why, she hasn’t explained. Anyhoo, in the video for the song, Britney is totes having a raging, sexual party with some girlfriends, and they dance together, and everyone looks HOT. Then, all of the sudden, things get kind of misty and Britney’s hair is shorter and she’s rockin’ some soccer mom digs, and is carrying a pie and there are some kids and OMG, what do you think it means? Is Brit saying that all the boys and all of the girls who are begging to “if you seek Amy” don’t know the real her? That’s deep yo. Also, pie sounds yummy. Keep reading »

Chris Brown and Rihanna are supposedly in a Santa Monica studio recording a duet. WTF?! Has Rihanna not seen “What’s Love Got To Do With It?” Well, if Tina Turner, Oprah, Jay-Z, her friends, the media, the public outcry, and rational thought can’t help her see the light, maybe if we try to speak her language- music, she’ll realize he’s got to go. So, we’ve compiled a list of hit songs (no pun intended) to inspire Rihanna that we think she and Chris Brown should cover for their duet.
The movie version of the infamous documentary “Grey Gardens” airs on HBO on April 18 — so soon! — and we finally have two trailers to tease you. When we initially heard about the movie, starring Drew Barrymore as Little Edie and Jessica Lange as Big Edie, we were a little worried: Would they do justice to the documentary, which has inspired everyone from Marc Jacobs to Rufus Wainwright? Amelia was especially concerned about Barrymore’s abilities.
I, for one, will be trekking to a friend who has HBO’s apartment next month. The movie goes back 40 years before the documentary was filmed, delving into why the mother and daughter withdrew from society. And, Drew’s accent doesn’t sound half bad! After the jump, the second trailer, a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the movie, and a clip from the original documentary for you to compare. Keep reading »
