I discovered Revlon Colorstay Ultimate Liquid Lipstick by accident. I was at Walgreens (because I’m always at Walgreens) looking for a long-wearing pink lipstick. I picked one that had some promising adjectives in the title (“infallible” was involved, or maybe it was “impenetrable”?) and brought it up to the counter. The woman rang it up, then examined the label and frowned. “Are you looking for a lipstick that lasts?” she asked.
“Yes,” I told her. “All my pink lipsticks fade within an hour. I need something heavy duty.”

BuzzMedia (The Frisky’s parent company) owns a number of different celeb gossip sites, and while I’ve been in LA I’ve been sitting among these gossip fiends and have been privy to a bunch of their “theories.” Whether they are true, who knows, but for example: Jessica Simpson is totally pregs and shopping the story around to tabloids. She’s just waiting for the right price to officially admit she’s knocked up and not with a burrito baby. Also, Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes’ “relationship” must be a publicity stunt because if they wanted to keep it low profile they could. Lastly, the consensus is that Lindsay Lohan has issues. Okay, that’s not a theory. That’s just true.
Anyway, click onward to see what The Frisky staff is wearing today!
“I do believe Marsellus Wallace, my husband, your boss, told you to take ME out and do WHATEVER I WANTED. Now I wanna dance, I wanna win. I want that trophy, so dance good.”
What could be more iconic than Uma Thurman’s turn as Mia Wallace in Quentin Tarantino’s “Pulp Fiction”? The wife of mob kingpin Marsellus Wallace is instantly recognizable in the film’s famous promotional image which shows her laying lackadaisical on a bed, cigarette in one hand and pistol in the other. Beyond that, she plays a pivotal part in the film, and since its release there’s been mass imitation of the character’s darkly simple style. In the 17 years since “Pulp Fiction” first showed, nobody’s done the classic look better than the dance-crazed, drug-fueled Mrs. Mia Wallace. Her outfits from the movie are easily recreated, but channeling her attitude is another thing entirely. You’re on your own for that one. How to get everything else, after the jump! Keep reading »
Remember when Tyra made the girls of cycle six of “America’s Next Top Model” pretend they were some broken down dolls? It looks like art is now imitating reality TV. In this spread for Vogue Italia – you know, the magazine that ANTM’s winner gets a spread in? – photographer Tim Walker shoots models Audrey Marnay and Kirsi Pyrhonen as different kinds of dolls. Et tu, Mr. Walker?
Every year, fashion designers and editors try to make velvet happen, which is fine. A velvet dress really does look smashing at a holiday party, after all. And this season everyone is trying to turn the men’s slipper into the new ballet flat, which is a little weird, but I’m slowly warming up to the idea. The natural culmination of these two trends is the velvet men’s slipper flat for women, shown here in a royal purple hue. The combo is getting a little too Hugh Hefner-y for my tastes, but what about you? Would you wear ‘em?
Any Girl Scout worth her merit badges knows to always “Be prepared!” But my Scout leader never got to the part about doing the horizontal polka out in the woods. Fortunately Mountain Gear, an outdoor sports supply web site, has got any grownup Girl Scout covered. Their “Backcountry Intimacy Kit” — sounds so sexy, doesn’t it? — contains three lubricated condoms, two packets of lube, four wet wipes, four compressed towels and a disposal bag. Making love by the campfire can be sexy, safe and clean! Keep reading »
