Freida Pinto Gets Whitewashed By L’Oreal

We all know that Freida Pinto, star of the Oscar-winning film “Slumdog Millionaire,” is a gorgeous Indian woman. So why in the hell did L’Oreal try to Photoshop her into a white lady? [ONTD] Keep reading »

A Vinyl Vacation

Before I was a Frisky lady, I lived in Philadelphia and had a regular DJ night. Over the years, I amassed tons and tons of vinyl records, and lugged them around in milk crates and stolen postal crates (shhhh, don’t tell anyone). Now that I’m no longer DJ-ing (I cannot stay up til 4 a.m., you guys!) I need some place classy to put all my hundreds of records. And that’s where the “Mad Men”-inspired Draper Media Console comes in. It’s sleek, modern, and stores a dazzling array of records. Certainly much more grown up — and legal — than my old postal crate.

Shopping Guide: 7 Coats That Are Actually Waterproof For Reals

Waterproof Coats
Even though I grew up in Oregon, where the unofficial state motto is, “We’re always wet!” I’m not sure I have ever bought a truly waterproof jacket. I gravitate toward coats that look like they should be waterproof (my Gap anorak, for example), only to have them soak through and disintegrate in the lightest drizzle, like so many papier-mache art projects on the way to the school bus. A recent downpour in London made me realize that it’s time to get serious. I’m over being wet and cold and miserable, so I’ve rounded up some seriously waterproof jacket options. Not water-resistant. Not water-repellent. Waterproof. They may not be the cutest coats you’ve ever seen, but they will do their job diligently. Read on if you’d like to stay dry this fall…

Does Your Man Have Thin Calves? Force Him To Wear Wondersocks!

How often have you looked at a man and thought, Hmm, his calves are so wispy, how does he stand on such thin and branch-like legs? I know, it happens all the time, right? Given the immense problem of lack of robust calves, it’s wonderful that designer Herbert Lipah — who runs a second-hand lederhosen shop in Munich, Germany — has decided to tackle the problem head on. He’s created the Wondersock, a padded insert men can stuff into high socks to give their calves added heft and muscularity. Lipah calls his product “First Royal Bavarian Calf Implants” and refers to them as “the Wonderbra for men.” We say, hey, if they help a dude feel better about his scrawny legs, then sure. And it seems like a whole lot less invasive than getting calf implants. [Gawker] Keep reading »
