For as wild as she is, it seems that Lady Gaga sometimes gets bored of being Lady Gaga. And that’s when she really pulls out all the stops — the lace face, the shower curtain dress, the latex top, and the large and unnecessary fan — all of which she wore to a RADIO appearance yesterday. A radio appearance. I’d love to see her try her hand at crafting or baking. I’m sure she could whip up the most amazing edible quilt ever. Keep reading »
“They have an expiration date and that’s why I’m wearing them now at 25. I’m such a sucker for a theme, so if I go somewhere like Vegas, I’ll dress like Vegas! Or if it’s Christmas time, I’ll dress like Mrs. Claus! … I think sometimes with the themed stuff, ’I won’t be wearing that to get my Starbucks today.’ Although, maybe my whipped cream bra I’ll wear, because I’ll help them out. ‘I got it! I got it! Hold the cream!’”

I often find myself judging the quality of an outfit in relation to whether or not I would wear the outfit. And since I have a simple traditional taste, I rule out a lot of great fashion-forward looks. For example: the revival of the 70s and 80s legging-as-pants look. For those of you with the legging fetish, behold [David Lerner's half-ripped, ripped, and latex leggings!] Although you will never find me in ripped or latex pants, I commend the women that pull the look off flawlessly. Imagine how self-assured you have to be to strut your stuff in shiny, skin-tight material. The leggings-as-pants wearers do not care if passerbys stare and they do not worry about what other people think. They simply live life and exude confidence. This is not to say that those of us who have a more conservative style are any less secure—we just like a different look for one reason or another. However, it is more common to dismiss a woman (as a friend, an employee, etc.) because she is wearing something eccentric rather than to accept her for it. And thus, it is important (for me) to remember that the fashion daredevils warrant the respect and approval of all fashionistas.

Check out this instructional video (NSFW) for FemSkin, the “transgendered prosthetic” we told you about a few weeks ago. Now, our male readers can learn how to don one. First, you line it with baby powder on the inside. Then, you roll each part of the skin over your body. (One is supposed to put on a FemSkin while nude, but the guy in the instructional video wears shorts.) The video advises where to place your ladylike FemPads to fake your hip bones, butt, and boobs. These are not your mama’s chicken cutlets. What do you say, guys? Try it out for us? [FemSkin Video (NSFW)] Keep reading »
If you’re really into Britney Spears’ look in her new video for “Womanizer,” now even you can wear the latex and cap she was wore! The Britney Latex Vest goes for $199 and comes in 21 colors and 21 trim options (Brit wore a solid black one). The company’s website says the vest’s “deep plunge neckline is daring but super-secure,” so there’s little risk of a nip-slip. Accessorize with the Rubber Muir Cap, available in black for a whopping $173. Apparently Britney only wears quality fetish fashions.

Condoms, the wonder rubbers, keep the sex safe like a superhero protecting a city. But there’s such a thing as condom Kryptonite. Before you get scared of imminent doom in the bedroom, here are six tips to stop your condoms from being rendered powerless.
- When you’re cookin’ in the bedroom, never use oil-based lubricants like vegetable shortening, cold cream, or Vaseline. In addition to being a bit greasy, they can actually damage the latex. Only use water or silicone based lubricants and slip slide away!

We’re big freaks for tights here at The Frisky — no matter the pattern, chances are Amelia, Catherine, Simcha, and Emily are rocking a pair at least three days out of the week (during the winter, of course). But what about leather (or lame and latex) leggings and tights? The leg wear has been seen on everyone from Lindsay Lohan to Frisky Patron Saint Rihanna, but our normally adventurous stems can’t quite wrap get with the Jazzercize look. Catherine says she only finds them acceptable on Rihanna, because she’s the awesomest, but finds them unwearable on regular folk. What do you think? Also, what happens if you get all sweaty in them? We’re reminded of that episode of Friends when Ross wears leather pants on a date and then can’t get out of them because he’s so sweaty, eventually dumping talcum powder all over himself while hiding in the bathroom. So funny. [My Fashion Life] Keep reading »
