J. Crew, I Love You

I firmly believe the key to a successful catalog is the ability to transport the readers/shopper into another world where, with the aid of the clothing the catalog sells, they can be as freaking fabulous as they want to be. J. Crew makes me feel this way and I know I’m being a mindless consumer for saying so. Unlike the piles of catalogs that come from West Elm and Crate & Barrel (um, how yuppie am I?), I don’t even get annoyed when I get my third J. Crew catalog of the month! I see its arrival as an excuse to take a little reprieve from my day, to go on a trip to Italy, where I’m wearing a Bright Flame Gayle Ruffle Trench slurping on pasta with my man, Lady & The Tramp-style. Or maybe I’m sight-seeing on a lovely Spring day, hitting the cobble stone streets of Florence in a pair of Bistro Orange-colored Twyla Midheel Slingbacks. Luckily, time doesn’t exist in J. Crew fantasy land, so even though I should really be getting back to work in the real world, there’s still plenty of hours left in the day to walk through the Duomo in a Verushka Print Dress. Unfortunately, the one thing that does exist in both J. Crew Fantasy Land and The Real World, is the prices. J. Crew, I’m just not so sure you’re a fantasy worth going broke for. [J.

Pretty Girls Don’t Have It All

Being attractive can be such a curse. Nisreen Swedberg and Sarah Williams, both 18, were flying to Los Angeles on a Southwest Airlines flight on Valentine’s Day, and they claim that the crew treated them differently because of their looks. “I think they were just discriminating against us because we were young, decent-looking girls,” Sarah told a TV reporter. “I mean, no one else on the plane really looked like us, except us.” According to Nisreen, she asked for a bottle of water, but when the crew served everyone else, they refused her. Then, Sarah and another passenger got into an argument about the bathroom. Apparently the two caused such a disruption that backup was brought in, and Nisreen and Sarah were escorted off the plane and questioned for two hours. Who knows whose fault all of this was, but please, ladies, don’t assume that everyone thinks you’re good-looking. Being humble is much more attractive. [CNN] Keep reading »

The Daily Hotness: Luke Wilson

While his nickname may be “One-Take Wilson”, Luke certainly makes us do a double take. He’s so casually fine, from his chiseled cheekbones to his laid back attitude, he can even pull off being in love with his (adopted) sister in The Royal Tenenbaums and still make us swoon. But Luke, aka Richie “Baumer” Tenenbaum, doesn’t just play athletes on the big screen, he’s quite the sportsman in real life too. In college, he was a track and field star before he even wanted to be in movies. Recently featured in Golf Digest as one of the Top 40 golfers in Hollywood, the magnetic man we wanna bring home to mama is now even more up to par. In addition to being a talented actor, director and writer, the stylish leading man is designing a new set of sophisticated sportswear for Puma. His line, which will hit stores in April, will be an homage to 50’s country club leisurewear. Although we’re sure the clothes will make the man even more classically dashing, we secretly wish they were see through. But that’s not very functional. Keep reading »

The Daily Squeeze: Bye-Bye Bald Men, Physical Therapy, And Russian Regulations

  • Those of us who have a thing for baldies might soon be out of luck, as researchers have identified a gene linked to hair loss. [MSNBC]
  • Women who experience dyspareunia, aka painful sex, might benefit from physical therapy, where you learn to relax and control your pelvic floor muscles. [ABC News]
  • In Russia, a bill has been drafted that defines what pornography is and limits its circulation. For example, porn may only be broadcast between 1 and 5 a.m., and all pornography will be excluded from the Russian Internet. How they plan to do that is beyond us. [Pravda]

    The Moment Of Truth Is So Uncomfortable

    Watching an episode of The Moment of Truth is like watching a really brutal slasher movie where there’s a 50/50 shot the super hot hero lives or dies. You really want to look away, especially when it gets bloody, and the payoff is usually a major disappointment, but it’s still totally impossible. Last night’s episode of the game show was an excellent example of this as a marketing concept. The show’s host says that this episode is so controversial, it almost didn’t air, which is totally TV-speak for, “we couldn’t wait to freaking air it, it is that juicy.” Bleached-blond Lauren is the contestant, and her Mom, Dad, brother, sister, and husband are all in the audience. Lauren, who seems to have some loose morals and an on-the-rocks relationship with her husband of two years, is so determined to win the $500,000 cash prize that she answers truthfully about some of the most TMI questions ever posed on a television show. Was she still in love with an ex-boyfriend on her wedding day? Yes. Does she think she should be married to aforementioned ex-boyfriend instead of her current husband? Yes. Has she had sexual relations with other men while she’s been married? Yes. Does she think she’s a good person? Yes. Oh wait, NO! That one was a lie! You know what that means?! Lauren walks home empty-handed! However, we’re pretty sure divorce papers will be in her grubby paws any day now. [Fox: The Moment of Truth] Keep reading »

    Star Couplings: Paris Hilton Adds A Madden To Her List

  • Oh my gosh, cannot believe I forgot to mention this yesterday. Paris Hilton is dating Joel Madden’s twin brother Benji. Joel Madden? As in Nicole Richie’s baby daddy? This has got to make double-dating so much easier. [Just Jared]
  • Britney Spears was finally allowed, after a month and a half, to see her kids. Twice! Yay! [Perez Hilton]
  • One of the best moments for me from the Oscars was when George Clooney and his much, much, much younger girlfriend talked about what they did for Valentine’s Day. They went to Vegas! To hang out with her friends! For some reason, the idea of the Cloons hanging out with a bunch of sorority girls makes me laugh and cry at the same time. [OMG!]

    Girl Crush Alert: Marion Cotillard

    Okay, so obviously The Frisky just loves Edith Piaf and we positively adored Marion Cotillard’s portrayal of her in La Vie En Rose. After Marion won the Oscar at Sunday’s awards show for her portrayal of the French chanteuse, a reporter asked her what song would represent what she’s feeling right now and if she wouldn’t mind singing a little bit of it. The clip above shows why we want to put her in our pocket and take her home with us. [YouTube] Keep reading »

    Oscar: That Forgetful 80-Year Old

    “Don’t you forget about me,” were the memorable words sung by Simple Minds at the end of The Breakfast Club. The Oscar producers must have missed that flick because they forgot more than a few people last night. Like Whoopi Goldberg, who lamented on The View that she was left out of the “Past Hosts” montage. Whoopi is at least lucky she can speak up for herself, unlike Brad Renfro who recently passed away at 25-years old. The star of Apt Pupil and love interest in Ghost World was nowhere to be found amongst those honored in the Oscar’s memorial reel. And he was not the only one forgotten. Actor Allen Melvin, known for his role as Sam the butcher on The Brady Bunch, and Academy Award nominee Roy Schneider, who starred in movies such as Jaws and All That Jazz, were also conspicuously missing. When MTV asked the Academy about it, a representative said, “We’re just not able to include everyone.” Classy! Just like Gary Busey, another tragedy of the night. Busey, whose recent press photos are mug shots, was caught on E!’s red carpet pre-show attacking Jennifer Garner with a kiss to the neck. Check out the clip above. Yuck! It begs the question — who invited him? Because if there’s room for Busey, the Academy should find away to include those who are actually deserving. [MTV News] Keep reading »

    Parking: Too Pricey A Tradition For Teens

    Since Ford invented the Model A, teens in need of privacy have been getting in their cars to get frisky. From lookout points to parking lots, nearly everyone has a story of laying out in the backseat. Cruisin’ around in your car is an American tradition, like baseball or apple pie; It’s an iconic symbol of freedom in teen genre movies from America Graffiti to Superbad. However, many teens are passing up this rite of passage. According to the Federal Highway Administration, while 43.8% of sweet sixteen year olds were licensed in 1998, a mere 29.8% are today. Although some states have raised the legal driving age, most public schools have dropped Drivers Ed from their curricula. Faced with high insurance rates and pricey private lessons, students might still be flipping burgers well into their 70′s to pay for the privilege of driving legally. This is a national economic crisis that is bleeding into our poor teens’ social lives! The price of getting felt up has gone too far! [New York Times] Keep reading »
