I never thought I’d say this, but Jessica Alba might just be my celebrity style icon at the moment. She’s does casual so well. She manages to look super cool and comfortable without dressing like a total schlub. Here, in a polka-dotted shirt, pink pants, and cute little mules, she is the epitome of Chic Mom. Which makes sense, since she is one.
Dusty pink is such a beautiful, romantic color. It’s much quieter than its loud cousin hot pink, more complex than its simple sister light pink, and–surprise!–it actually works on a variety of skin tones. Here are seven dusty pink dresses we’re currently lusting after. Click through to check ‘em out!
- Pink recently had a gall bladder removed after being hospitalized for intense stomach pains. She had to miss performing at an Obama fundraiser in L.A. while she was ailing, but “Glee”‘s Darren Criss was able to fill in at the last moment. Get well soon, Pink! [PopCrush]

Chris Brown still has a lot of fans … but Pink and Carey Hart aren’t two of them. The couple was tweeting up a storm while watching the Billboard Music Awards together on Sunday night, and when Brown came on to “sing” ”Turn Up the Music,” they didn’t hold back.
“One day if i lipsync, i hope i do it as well as him…” Pink tweeted, referencing the fact that Brown was clearly not singing live during his performance.
Hart jumped in as well, adding “Im pretty sure i saw my wife did that same performance, but she was 3 months pregnant and actually sang the song.” Read more…
- As if you needed further proof that toy companies are ruthless when it comes to marketing “girls” and “boys” toys in the basest way possible: “The Pink & blue Project,” by photographer JeongMee Yoon, captures little girls and their pink — very pink — toys, dolls, shoes and clothes. [Flavorwire]
- Feminist activists Gloria Steinem, Robin Morgan and Jane Fonda say it’s time for the FCC to step in and deal with Rush Limbaugh, who recently called Sandra Fluke a “slut” and a “prostitute” on-air. I suspect the FCC is too busy keeping an eagle-eye out for wardrobe malfunctions. [Christian Science Monitor]

Let’s do the Time Warp, yeaaaah!
Amelia has gone back in time and unearthed a video of Baby Jessica Wakeman (real name: Riley), who is just as opinionated as she is in adult form. Riley is seen shopping in a toy store, with a man I presume is her father, when she goes off on a rant about how pink is not just for girls. You tell ‘em, Riley! And in another 15 years, there is an internship waiting for you at The Frisky. [YouTube] Keep reading »
Bangkok, Thailand has taken a pretty non-traditional approach to curbing police corruption. Of late, they’ve been punishing officers who act out of line by requiring that they wear pink Hello Kitty armbands on their uniforms. “This new twist is expected to make them feel guilt and shame and prevent them from repeating the offense, no matter how minor,” said Pongpat Chayaphan, acting chief of the Crime Suppression Division in Bangkok. “Kitty is a cute icon for young girls. It’s not something macho police officers want covering their biceps.”
Hmm, okay, so we get it. Pink Hello Kitty armbands are juvenile and girly. But God, there are so many things wrong with this idea. First off, does anybody remember the last time “violators” were identified using armbands? I’ll give you a hint: It stars with H and ends with OLOCAUST. Secondly, punishing with pink and girly imagery sends implicit messaging that traditionally feminine iconography and colors are shameful.
And this is hardly the only time pink has been used as a weapon…
- Chris Christie is the governor of New Jersey and this morning he denied once again that he is seeking the Republican nomination for president. (Except he didn’t actually say that, which I think means wink-wink-nudge-nudge he’s not ready to announce yet.) But anyway, enough about politics — let’s talk about that tie. It’s pink. Hot pink. I have never seen a politician wear such a tie. Blue, yes. Red, yes. But hot pink? No, never. What does it all mean? And could a Democratic dude get away with such a stereotypically effeminate color?

Pink beer is the latest product to be feminized for the fairer sex. Molson Coors, a brewery, is pink-ifying a lager called Animée to be less “masculine” with “clear filtered, crisp rosé and zesty lemon flavors,” according to the UK’s Independent.
Pink beer … sounds like wine. It sounds like champagne, actually. And pink champagne is already a thing. Ergo, pink beer is not something that needs to happen, except in La La La Marketing Land where advertisers think anything “pink” appeals to pretty, pretty princesses women. Newsflash, beer advertisers: maybe if every single one of your commercials wasn’t about T&A your products would appeal to us more! Keep reading »
