We here at The Frisky offices have a little lady boner for Ryan Lochte — mostly for his abs, because he’s not like, the brightest. Just today he tweeted about meeting Miley “Sirus” — yes, that’s right. Plus, there’s that whole “Jeah” thing, which is pretty annoying. But again, there are his abs, which are wildly redeemable. Of late, Lochte has teemed up with Charitybuzz to raise funds for Hurricane Sandy victims. He’s auctioning off a morning swim lesson, along with “lunch at one of his favorite spots,” which we imagine is likely a Chili’s or Applebees. But oh, there’s a catch… Keep reading »
We already know that Maria Sharapova is a hardcore philanthropist and kickass tennis player who has scored some of the biggest endorsement deals around, but her equally formidable sweet tooth managed to fly under the radar … until now. The Olympic silver medalist and four-time Grand Slam winner (and she’s only 25!) launched her premium candy line, Sugarpova, at Henri Bendel yesterday, and at risk of sounding tooth-achingly trite, Sharapova looked pretty damn sweet herself. A metallic dark brown liner smudged between the lashes and a sheer, shimmery mushroom taupe shadow on the lids enhances her almond-shaped eyes without the “too much” factor when paired with a pretty coral lipstick. This look is super-simple and the clean, fresh vibe is perfect for the office … or anywhere else, really. Get the details after the jump! Keep reading »
Two-time Olympic gold medalist Gabby Douglas looked every bit the sparkling superstar that she is while navigating JFK Airport on her way to an appearance on “The Tonight Show” yesterday. Her metallic gold mini skirt and black motorcycle jacket are a flattering, edgy, and age-appropriate choice for her triumphant return to the U.S. Gabby definitely wins gold in the Best Outfit All-Around.

The first thing you notice about gold medal winning Olympic rower Esther Lofgren is her smile. The next thing you notice is her height — at 6’2″ Esther towers over nearly everyone she meets, but she’s warm and will happily stoop to accomodate those around her. The Harvard grad took home the gold during the London Olympics with an impressive team performance in the women’s eight-person race.
We spoke to Esther while she was getting her nails done at the P&G Family Home salon about how she made it to the Olympics, what it’s like to work with all women, and how she keeps her skin looking so damn good.

Olympic swimmer/world record breaker/real life superhero Michael Phelps now has another title to add to his impressive resume: Louis Vuitton model. The legendary athlete and alleged retiree is starring in the latest round of Louis Vuitton “Core Values” ad campaigns, shot by Annie Leibovitz. One of the photos shows Phelps reclining in a bathtub, wearing goggles and a Speedo, showing off his amazing body and—wait, is that a fart bubble between his legs? OK, OK, so it’s probably just a weird shadow or the outline of a drain or something, but I kind of wish it was a fart, if only because, as my boyfriend put it, “That would make his facial expression so much funnier.” [Fashionista]
