Forget that cotton scent. Thanks to Le Slip Francais, men will soon have the option of wearing scented underwear that smells of musk and pears, France’s The Local reports.
The French undergarment company has raised more than 19,000 euros (about $25,000) on a crowdfunding site to launch its “Indomitable” brand, which promises afresh scent for up to 30 washes.
While wearers will still have to throw the underwear in the rinse cycle regularly — unlike the Wool & Prince shirt that can remain odor-free for up to 100 days without washing — the company promises that the microcapsules will spread the scent evenly throughout the underwear with each wash.

Men! There are plenty of things about women that they don’t understand, but they really, really don’t understand what goes into our appearances. Sure, they sort of get why we might feel like we need concealer, or even lipstick. But when it comes to more nuanced beauty tricks, like filling in your eyebrows or using a blow-dryer, they are clueless. Here are 14 things that men will never, ever even begin to understand about our beauty regimens … [Clueless man image via Shutterstock] Keep reading »

Can you believe that the June issue of Elle is Kerry Washington‘s first major fashion magazine cover? That is a Big Deal for the first black woman to headline a network TV show. Kerry’s just breakin’ barriers left and right, isn’t she? I like it.
The collapse of Rana Plaza, a clothing factory in Bangladesh, has been a horrifying wake-up call about the consequences of “fast fashion.” Here at The Frisky, we’re dedicated to bringing you the styles you love at prices you can afford, but we’re also working hard to make sure to recommend companies we believe in and advocate for better working conditions for the people (mostly women) who make the clothes we buy.

If there’s one thing we can say for certain about Monday night’s “punk”-themed Met Gala, it’s that there was certainly a lot to look at. Like, a lot. We hardly even know where to begin. There was the good, which was at its best over-the-top and in keeping (or attempted) with the misappropriated theme, and then there was the cringeworthy bad, which was either a total miss (do you even know what you’re here for?) or uncannily similar to a first-degree crime committed on the local Hot Topic store. But the beauty, by and large, was spectacular! Red carpet events usually call for boring stalwarts of things like “red lips” and “Hollywood waves,” but makeup artists and hair stylists really got a chance to show their edgier chops last night. For this, we are grateful… and, naturally, jealous of the stars who got to wear some of the best looks at the gala. We’re taking cues from six of our favorite looks of the night, right here…
Happy Tuesday! Or something? Happy anything? The “Gatsby” soundtrack hit Spotify earlier today, and I don’t think any of us have listened to anything else since. My favorite parts are the dialogue. Is that weird? Totally. Come see what we’re wearing today…
You would think Bjork is committing multiple offenses with this outfit — a heady mix of winter wonderland + summer rave party with a splash of PTA mom. But this is Bjork, and generally the rules do not apply to her. I must take issue, however, with the horrible, beat-up sneaker-clogs she’s sporting. It’s not just that they’re made out of awful jute, but they’re in really bad shape, too. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
