Five Reasons To Skip Seeing “Quantum Of Solace” In Theaters

We were big ol’ fans of “Casino Royale,” the last Bond flick, and the first starring the delectable Daniel Craig, another Frisky favorite. So when “Quantum of Solace” came out this weekend, we were extremely excited to see if their action-packed “boys” film would rock our chick flick hearts the way “Casino Royale” did. Sadly, it FAILED. After the jump, five reasons why you should save it for your Netflix queue. Keep reading »

What’s Up With Beyonce’s Bionic Hand?

Beyonce has been promoting her multiple-personality album I Am…Sasha Fierce, which will be released tomorrow, and in at least three recent performances — the World Music Awards, the MTV Europe Music Awards, and “Saturday Night Live” — she has worn a piece of jewelry that resembles the hand of a robot. Upon closer inspection, you’ll notice that the glove is basically a full-hand ring. At first, we thought Beyonce was wearing her special glove whenever she performed as Sasha Fierce, her sassier alter-ego, but this theory doesn’t pan out because she wore the hand when she performed “If I Were A Boy,” which is on the Beyonce part of the album. The accessory, which we’re calling a “gling” (glove ring), was designed by Lorraine Schwartz, who also created Beyonce’s $5-million, 18-carat diamond wedding ring. Seeing as Schwartz’s designs cost a pretty penny, maybe Beyonce is wearing the gling non-stop because she wants to get her money’s worth. Either that or she’s just one of the first to sport finger-surrounding rings — Vogue Italia featured several in a recent story, and Selma Blair wore one shaped like a snake this weekend.

Thanks for sending us your pics from the anti-Proposition 8 protests that took place around the country this past Saturday! We wish we could post all of them, but instead we picked out our favorites (see above and after the jump). I still think the signs in NYC were the most clever, though big props to Orlando for the sign above! Keep reading »

Peace Signs: Still Going Strong At 50

Back in 1958, textile designer and commercial artist Gerald Holton designed a symbol for peace activists to put on their protest posters. The image he created was a combination of the letters N, for nuclear, and D, for disarmament, and it still represents peace 50 years later. The popularity and connotation of the peace sign has changed over time. It was used by Vietnam war protesters in the ’60s, and 30 years after that, my friends and I wore peace sign necklaces just because they looked cool. In celebration of the symbol’s anniversary, designers such as Diane von Furstenberg, Proenza Schouler, and Alexander Wang have designed outfits inspired by the peace sign. (If you live in NYC, check them out in the windows at Barneys.) Below, 11 peace products that are more chic than hippie… Keep reading »

Crave: Satellite Rings

We love the modern look of these Satellite rings by Anne Kiel, which are made in gorgeous, bright colors with sterling silver and resin. They’d look awesome on your left ring finger, the one everyone is always glancing at when you’re at Home Depot looking at tools and they’re wondering why you’re there alone, and you have to explain, “No, no, this isn’t a wedding ring! It’s a satellite ring. It’s awesome and means I can come to Home Depot alone and find things that, sure, I can’t lift into my car but so what? I’ve got this great non-symbolic ring and I’m wearing it with pride!” Or, you could just wear it on another finger. [$91, Supermarket HQ] Keep reading »

Cover Your Walls In Fishnet Wallpaper

I adore this fishnet-style wallpaper designed by Jon Sherman and created by Flavor Paper. The hand-printed paper’s pattern is composed of the stockinged legs of retro ladies, and old school bustiers and panties decorate the squares where the design crisscrosses. The available colors are hot: fireball, gold, electric raspberry, and licorice. Unfortunately, at $150 for a 27″ x 15′ roll, this may not be the perfect wall covering for die-hard recessionistas. But can’t a girl splurge everywhere once in a while? [Cool Hunting] Keep reading »

10 Point Breakdown Of Britney Spears’ “Circus”

Guess who has an early bird copy of Britney Spears’ “Circus,” not due in stores until December 2nd? Me! I can’t tell you how I got it, but it was leaked on the internet this week, so, if you were a fan of pirated music, you could tots find it yourself. Anyway, I’ve been listening to the record on repeat all morning/afternoon and am prepared to give it a grade. A+! All the details of its’ awesomeness, after the jump… Keep reading »

Poll: Have You Dated A Pair Of Best Friends?

Last night on “Californication” (spoiler alert!), Hank Moody went out with his best friend’s ex. And she was not just any ol’ ex — according to his BFF Lew, she’s the girl that got away. But on that very same night, Lew snuck out on a date with Hank’s ex-wife. Scandalous! Well, (cough), you know, it happens. Back in high school I dated two best friends, one right after the other. What can I say, they were both damn sexy study hall tutors! And honestly, who wouldn’t say yes to getting felt up in the library?! But in the end, the boys dumped me to save their friendship. I’m kind of convinced that faux pas is still messing with my relationship karma. So, I have to admit, I was kind of relieved to see even these “Californication” man whores swap ladies like it ain’t no thang. It made me wonder how common that sort of situation is…. So, ladies, I ask you this question — have you ever dated a pair of friends?

Dating Drama: Is He The One?

Right now, I’m in the most serious relationship I’ve ever been in; as in, even though I live in New York and he lives in San Francisco, we’ve talked about where and when we could live together — and how soon. He’s met my uncle; I’ve gone to his family’s cabin, and I’m joining them for Thanksgiving. His mom sends me emails, and my grandmother sends me clippings urging him to stop smoking. We talk almost every night and end most calls with “I love you.” Keep reading »
