New Clutch Helps Celebs Beat Paparazzi At Their Own Game

Most of us insignificant peons have no idea what it’s like to be hounded by the paps. And I on occasion have thought celebs should just suck it up because if no one cares about you, then your celebrity is over. But they can soon mount a counter defense against the paparazzi: Adam Harvey is the genius behind the Anti-Paparazzi Clutch that gives off a bright flash when it detects a flash from a camera. The result is an obscured photo, which for the paps means no check. The clutch will have a limited release in early Spring 2010. Until then, annoyed celebrities will continue to scowl and hide behind a hood or bodyguard. Or they could just render paparazzi photos useless by hiring a photog to follow them, and then give the photos to the tabloids. [Ed Note: SNAP.] Keep reading »

Quick Pic: This Dress Is Bananas!

There are basically no words for the ghastly horror that is this sock monkey dress, except for those involving “zoo” and “escaped from.” [Inventor Spot] Keep reading »

Crave: Tory Burch Jelly Reva

Jumping in puddles…what delight it brings to the inner child. Our shoes, however, are not quite so happy with our love for water sports. We could wear rain boots, but it’s been difficult finding a pair that don’t look downright silly in the summer or are cute enough to actually want to wear. In a somewhat ingenious move, Tory Burch has combined the lust with the must: the jelly ballet flat. Dancing in the rain has never looked so stylish. Oh yes, did we mention that the jelly flats are a fraction of the price of Tory’s classic flats? You may just find yourself praying for rain or wearing these shoes everyday you think you spot a cloud. [$95, Tory Burch] Keep reading »

Stylish Teens We’re Jealous Of (& Ones We Could Do Without)

Ahh…to be young again. Not that we’re old here at The Frisky, but recently we’ve been wishing we were back in high school, and it has nothing to do with the wars between the popular kids, acne, or peer pressure. Rather, now more than ever, teens are making headlines for being awesome. While we were awesome teenagers (“awesome” as in “slightly weird, awkward, smart kids who turned out better”), we’d kill to go back and use the Internet to promote our talents. Like these kids, who have already made names for themselves as bloggers, writers, and chefs. Jealous? Obvi.

After the jump, the teens we’re most envious of (and our predictions for their futures), and the ones who can suck it. Keep reading »

Signature City Style Spanning The Globe

There are many fashion capitals scattered across the globe, but surprisingly no two are alike. You might think that one well heeled and shiny lipped city could not be distinguished from it’s other couture colleagues, but oh how wrong you would be. Residents of these fashion forward cities are stylish, trendy and decked out in designer duds but in unique and innovative ways. Here is a rundown of the signature city styles of fashion capitols around the world. Keep reading »

Do You Dress For Men Or Women?

The U.K.’s edgier counterpart to our Paris Hilton, Peaches Geldof, insists that despite her clearly provocative looks (the heels, that ink, those bedroom eyes), “it should be obvious I’m not dressing for men.” Huh. In fact, the 20-year old, who just launched a clothing line with PPQ, told the Times, “I don’t want to dress for men, I think it’s almost like a feminist thing.” It is almost like that Peaches! Meh, we’re not gonna hate on the girl just because she’s stylish, rich and, arguably, young enough to get away with making kind of ridic statements like that, but her comment did make us consider who women really end up dressing for anyway.

Crave: Crocs Prima Ballet Flats

Don’t start yelling at us for losing our style sense just yet. We know it’s hard to imagine a pair of Crocs that aren’t fugly, but lo and behold, we present you with a pair that is totes adorable. Someone over at that company got the hint that fashion conscious gals may have liked the comfort of the shoes, but didn’t dig the dowdy silhouette. The result: ballet flats so cute you would never think they were Crocs. Slip your feet into these comfy flats and marvel at how stylish your tootsies look and how happy they feel. At a bargain of 20 bucks and a color variety spanning the rainbow, you will be hard pressed to find a reason not to buy these. [$20, Crocs] Keep reading »

The Inspiration Board: Feeling Summer Much?

It’s hard to look all darling when you’re freaking baking inside a worrisomely hot car and not say, chillaxin’ in the breezy Bahamas. Somehow, our style icon-o-the-day, indie fashion maven Zooey Deschanel, makes toasty weather chic look easy and reminds us of cotton candy, photo booths, lounge chairs, and that sweet, sweet patio water mister we’re saving up for. Luckily, these cute shoes are cool and way cheaper. Keep reading »

Fashion Industry Rallies To Make Men’s Skinny Jeans More Comfy

The war on men’s skinny jeans is, er, loosening, just not in the way you’d exactly hoped. Denim companies like Levi’s and True Religion have seen huge increases in the sale of their tight pants for guys (thanks, Pete Wentz). But in a move that seems more responsive than any we’ve seen for women, these brands are reacting to customer complaints suggesting that perhaps their styles are a wee bit too snug, and as a result are widening thigh and waistlines on the styles. If you’ve ever walked down Bedford Avenue in Williamsburg, Brooklyn (aka, Hipsterville, USA), you’d already know about the too-tight issue. Men, like women, are even having severe problems because of their jeans. Oh, the horrors after the jump and you tell us: Are you coming to terms with this oft disturbing trend? Keep reading »

Quote Of The Day: Patricia Field Hates A-Line Skirts

“I hate the A-line skirt. It’s like a lampshade. Ugly. Kristin Davis always wanted to wear A-line skirts as she thought it hid her big behind. She has a fabulous figure – she is completely hour glass, and I would say: ‘Kristin, you have a small waist – show off your round ass!’ She would never show it. I wanted to make her into a Bettie Page in ‘Sex and the City,’ but all she wanted were A-line skirts and Ralph Lauren clothes.”
