Nothing says “holiday season” like eerily similar-looking, freakishly attractive, pouty-lipped lingerie models parading down a runway in angel wings. Yes, it is time for another Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show!
Join me and our Mind of Man columnist John DeVore tonight — Tuesday — at 10 p.m. EST for a liveblog of our nation’s most important thong-related cultural event, appearing on CBS. You can follow my every little jealous pang and DeVore’s every little boner via our Twitter handle (@TheFrisky), on our Facebook page, or right here on TheFrisky.com, after the jump.
Alessandra, Chanel, Adriana, Rosie and — duh — John DeVore will be there … will you? Keep reading »
If you’re a sucker for “Project Runway,” “The City” or any other show that takes you behind the scenes of the fashion world (or supposedly portrays “real life,” whatever that is), you’ll love @NoBtotheS, an anonymous Twitter account representing the perspective of a woman in fashion PR. As her handle suggests, she’s dedicated to calling out all the BS she sees in the fashion industry, and we find her updates hilarious and juicy (plus, we totally recognize all the crazy behaviors of players in the style realm). Better yet, Fashionista has commissioned @NoBtotheS to write a column about her observations. Some of the best tidbits from her Fashionista column so far … after the jump!

My friend Brittany and I used to play MASH in our Mead composition books. Now I have the opportunity to mash my money into a wallet that looks like a Mead composition book. The whole thing is just blowing my mind. It’s also reminding me that I’m destined to live in a shack with eight kids and my husband, AJ McLean from the Backstreet Boys. Sweet.

In anticipation of the release of her third LP, Let Freedom Reign (out today, Nov. 30), Island Def Jam recording artist Chrisette Michele let a bunch of bloggers pick her brain last night at an event hosted by the Carol’s Daughter store in Harlem. We all know she’s an extremely talented singer and musician (you know, one who actually has a voice and isn’t about gyrating for attention), so what I really wanted to know were Chrisette’s style and beauty preferences. Find out how she gets the power to voice her thoughts and why the reaction to her natural hair was annoying, after the jump. Keep reading »
At the beginning of reporter Rochelle Ritchie’s TV news career, she was told she had to get hair extensions. Like millions of black women, Rochelle has worn long, shiny extensions and wigs because she thought it made her look more professional. For six years, she “faithfully” wore wigs and weaves and progressed up the corporate ladder. But that’s come to an end. “After years of manipulation, I took the break step of going natural,” she now says on this great five-minute-long segment on WPTV. From now on, Rochelle will be reporting from West Palm Beach, Florida, with just her own ‘do — and she looks gorgeous. Keep reading »
Photos of the spring 2011 shoe collection from Beyonce’s House of Dereon have hit the web. And I’m completely underwhelmed because all these styles look really familiar. Similar incarnations of that gladiator sandal, for instance, made their debut two summers ago and were extremely popular this past summer. And the black and white sandal and the white studded sandal look like shoes anyone could buy from Target or Payless. There isn’t anything wrong with shopping at Target and Payless, mind you, but isn’t Beyonce trying to establish House of Dereon as a brand ahead of the curve? That is the goal of most designers, isn’t it — to start the trends, not copy them? So, you know my opinion now, but would you wear shoes from the House of Dereon spring collection?
