Vote For Your Favorite Rad & Inspiring Woman!

It should come as no surprise that for all the obsessing we do about Ryan Gosling, baby pandas, Grumpy Cat, Karl Lagerfeld, Chavril and the endless array of Be My Boyfriend candidates, The Frisky is most inspired by the work of the many rad women we look up to. There are so many pop culture heavyweights and high-powered newsmakers who show us how its done and inspire us with their achievements every day. Naturally, of course, we each have our favorites. With that in mind, each Frisky staff member was tasked with choosing and submitting their favorite rad and inspiring woman — okay, a few of us got to pick two — for nomination, along with a photo of herself and a blurb about why they chose the woman they did.

And now we want you to vote for your favorite of the 10 women we’ve chosen.

The poll will remain open for two weeks — until April 22 — and, at that time, the woman with the most votes will become, effectively, our Rad & Inspiring Woman of the Year.

So what do you say? Will you tell us who you love, too? Vote now! Keep reading »

Michelle Obama: “Barack Is a Sex Symbol”

Michelle Obama was on “Entertainment Tonight” last night—so, needless to say, the interview covered such hard-hitting topics as her husband’s “swag” and her bangs, Mediaite reports. Asked what it’s like to be married to a “sex symbol,” Obama replied of her husband, “He’s got a little swag, you know. That’s OK. I mean, I’m proud of him. He’s a stylish, I think, man who is healthy and he’s smart and he’s passionate and he’s inspiring. And who wouldn’t fall in love with that, you know?” Read more…

Well Played: The Obamas’ Easter Ensembles

The Obamas dressed up in their Sunday best to attend an Easter church service in DC, and as usual, I’m totally in awe of this gorgeous family. Sasha and Malia looked beautiful (and age-appropriate) in their colorful Easter dresses, while the divine Mrs. O opted for a Prabal Gurung dress she’s worn a couple times before. Well played, Obama family! [Photo: Getty]

President Obama Compares Michelle To Beyonce: “She Upgraded Me”

Even for those who don’t like President Barack Obama’s politics, it’s hard to not admire the love that he and First Lady Michelle Obama share.

The First Couple sat down in separate interviews for Vogue magazine’s April issue — which the FLOTUS fronts in a stunning Reed Krakoff dress — and shared how their marriage has made them better people.

“Michelle’s like Beyoncé in that song,” President Obama said. “‘Let me upgrade ya!’ She upgraded me.” Read more…

I’m a great admirer of Madame Obama, I just prefer her without bangs because it doesn’t cover her face. But if she wanted to do it for her fiftieth birthday then I like it.

––Karl Lagerfeld, always good for an offensive soundbite, is backing off his previous comment that Michelle Obama’s bangs make her look like a news anchor. In France, that’s apparently an insult. Krazy Karl hit up the French news channel La Chaine Info, found his manners, and thwarted the world’s first hairdo-related international incident. (Except he got her age wrong: she’s 49.)

“This is my midlife crisis, the bangs. I couldn’t get a sports car. They won’t let me bungee-jump. So instead, I cut my bangs.”

–Michelle Obama has a “Stars: they’re just like us!” moment on “The Rachael Ray Show,” revealing that, like millions of women before her, she decided to cut her bangs on her 49th birthday, in the midst of a midlife crisis. Her sassy new do appears in her latest official White House portrait, shown above. As someone who has made some really terrible hair decisions as a result of various existential crises (I once got an impulse pixie cut at a salon called “The Hack And Wack”), I applaud her restraint, and I think she looks great.

Not for babies. [BuzzFeed]
