The Frisky’s Chic On The Street: London Sep. 21st 2009

You’ve got to love a couple that looks like they share a closet. Strolling Bond Street, a famous shopping stop in London, Fiona’s Gant blazer and preppy loafers look smart in the early autumn. Her best accessory? Her boyfriend, Gustav. Hopefully, Gustav is as good a match in other ways as he is in the wardrobe department. Keep reading »

Can’t Sleep? Try Brushing Your Teeth

I am an insomniac. And I don’t care how many times my shrink tells me to “try deep breathing” or “meditate before bedtime” or “stop drinking caffeine,” I’m still going to go for the Ambien on sleepless nights. Here’s one bedtime story she’s probably never heard: Pearly Dreams, the toothpaste that puts you to sleep. Keep reading »

Anthropologie Gets Into the Collaboration Game

Apparently, Anthropologie is jealous of the attention that stores like H&M, Topshop, and Uniqlo are getting for their designer collaborations. So the romantic brand nabbed Brian Wolk and Claude Morais of Ruffian to create four collections which will appear in 55 stores, beginning in November. Sadly, no pics yet, but think a total ’40s style look, complete with coats, silk dresses, and their very own prints. If the stockings look anything like their polka-dot design that walked down the runway in the fall ’09 collection, then it’s sure to sell out immediately.

But it wouldn’t be an Anthropologie collection without just a tidbit of home goods. So, of course, Ruffian-style candles and glasses will be available for purchase. Plus, come spring, you’ll be able to lie on sheets by the boys. Basically they’re taking over the store and our homes. And you know what? We are totally OK with that! [WWD]

Hair Model Citizen: Ain’t Miss Beehivin’

This sculptural beehive was spotted at Danielle Scutt’s showing at London Fashion Week. And while we fully salute this Hair Model Citizen, we can’t say this is a runway trend we’ll be rocking anytime soon. [London, 9/21/09] Keep reading »

London Fashion Week Offers (Gasp!) Diversity

After a rocky, anorexia-accusation-laden beginning, London Fashion Week is now offering us a glimpse at runways not peopled with white, pre-pubescent stick figures. PPQ followed in the steps of Carlos Campos in casting an entire runway of black models; knitwear designer Mark Fast sent three “plus-sized” (read “averaged-sized”) girls down the runway in his uber-clingy dresses; and Sykes pulled a Charles Nolan, marching models up to 70 years old down its catwalk.

Blake Lively’s Boobs And Legs Roam Free In Yet Another Red Carpet Gown

It’s hard being Blake Lively. Between Leighton Meester‘s alleged sex tape, Ed Westwick‘s stupid tattoos, and Taylor Momsen‘s incessant partying, she’s the only class act “Gossip Girl” has got going. Yet, when it comes to the red carpet, subtlety eludes the poor thing. Keep reading »

Have You Heard Of The “Hollywood”?

I was reading Daily Mail columnist Liz Jones’ latest crazy rant (today the subject is unwanted body hair) and it was just as bats**t and entertaining as usual, until I came across the following description in regards to a cousin of the Brazilian bikini wax:

“Then there is its more extreme stablemate the Hollywood, which takes away everything, leaving the bearer distastefully childlike. My waxing specialist in London now does ‘seven or eight Hollywoods a day’ – a 70 per cent increase on this time last year. Completely Bare, the American chain of spas dedicated to hair removal, has seen requests for a Hollywood quadruple in the past 12 months.”

How did I miss out on this terminology? Was I absent that day during beauty school? Now don’t get me wrong. I understand that some women are going completely bald down there, but I had no idea just how many of them were and that it was even called that. And I’ve even visited Completely Bare, the spa Jones is referring to (though not for that). What I need to know immediately is this: Are you getting this (presumably extremely painful) procedure done? And did you know it was called a “Hollywood”? Oh and dudes, are you like, into this or find it totally disturbing? [The Daily Mail] Keep reading »

Would You Like To Try … Urin?

What is this? I don’t know. I don’t know if I even want to know. At first, I thought it was an ad for a real or fake product. (You never know, these days.) A perfume. Called … Urin. Then, I thought it was a music video. Which I guess it is. By Dragonette. (Who, right?) In any case, suffice it to say, I am not going to rush out and by a bottle of Urin any time soon. Unless, you know, everybody else does. Keep reading »

When Is It OK To Go Braless?

Now here’s a dilemma I’ve never had to worry about since l was 12 and grew size-C boobs one night in the middle of 7th grade: to wear a bra or not to wear a bra? See, even after breast reduction surgery when I was 19, I still can’t fathom actually going braless out in public. I rarely even feel comfortable enough to free-ball it in the privacy of my own home (my boobs at 33 simply aren’t what — or where — they were 10 years ago). That isn’t to say I’m not a little jealous of women who don’t have to wear a bra. When I read that quote from Christina Applegate about the, uh, perk of going braless since getting implants after her double mastectomy for breast cancer, I thought, Well, at least there’s one upside! But then, I still have to wonder, just because a woman feels she can go braless, does that mean it’s appropriate? Keep reading »
