When it comes to glitter makeup, I can take it or leave it, preferably back in grade school. But all these famous chicks keep wearing crazy eye makeup (Drew Barrymore and Lily Allen spring to mind), and when I recently ran into makeup artist Regina Harris at photographer Marilyn Minter’s studio, I became mega-inspired. Harris was there celebrating Minter’s MAC collaboration and did the makeup for this shot (above) of model Cintia Dicker sporting thick, textured sparkle with not just a hint of Minter’s signature mix of, as Harris puts it, “glamour and deconstruction.” Before we digressed into art speak, I asked Harris what was really on my mind: “How can a grown woman ever pull off glitter in real life?” Keep reading »
As rational, educated women, we know in our heads that when it comes to the often outlandish promises skincare companies make, applying a so-called wrinkle cure will not actually erase lines from our face. As people bombarded with airbrushed images of perfect, supernaturally youthful skin and famous idols who fight each skin fold with a double dose of Botox, it’s safe to say that we’re warily interested in aging and the lack thereof. And when it comes to beauty products in general, is it really so crazy to ask for something that does what it promises? According to a Daily Mail report, we may be getting closer to true product efficacy and real, not just promised, miracles in a jar. Keep reading »
Earlier this month we asked readers of The Frisky, “Do you dress for men or women?” Most of you said you dress for yourself, period, which is why we thought you’d be interested in hearing about a controversial little article that ran in the New York Post this weekend. Writer Kyle Smith is very upset about women wearing maxi-dresses (a la the type Angie has helped make extra popular), and wants the ladies of NYC to know that these “urban burqas” aren’t doing them any favors. But wait, it gets better, or um, worse…

Simcha rocks a very distinct look on a daily basis — eyeshadow and cat eyeliner, ruby red lips, plenty of bling and a pompadour. And she looks rad. But when she told us that the only people who’ve seen her sans the war paint are her bedfellows, we decided it was time for a make-under, just so she’d have a look to bust out on days when she wants to sleep in and stuff. The dramatic “after,” an oh-so-informative video and the products we used, after the jump! Keep reading »
“My aunt just passed her old Chanel suit down to me, and obviously, I’m stoked. It fits like a glove and it’s lilac, which is kind of a fun color, but I just have one problem: As a 29-year-old, do I wear it without looking too matronly or worse, costumey, like I’m dressing up as Jackie O. for Halloween?” — Anabelle
Ah, this is a tricky one. We solve our reader’s most serious fashion crisis, after the jump! Keep reading »
Move over Snuggie, there’s a new infomercial sensation in town, and according to this sales pitch, it’s highly recommended for hobos, ninjas with delicate hands, Twitterers and “Night Bloggers” like us. Anyway, we’ll just go ahead and let these “Underpants For Your Hands” speak for themselves. Also, you can order them here, for real. [Gizmodo] Keep reading »
Ever since Barbie celebrated her 50th birthday, the icon has been appearing everywhere from news shows to Hollywood to basically every single international edition of Vogue to name a few venues, and fashion runways across the world have been no exception. We even caught a glimpse of her at Dior’s couture show, in a way. How to get the look, after the jump! Keep reading »
“Her personality gives off a distinct air of milquetoast.” Or so says a source who works on the set of “The Bounty,” which Aniston is currently filming. If you’re wondering WTF that even means, here’s the Dictionary.com definition:
milque⋅toast [milk-tohst] – noun (sometimes initial capital letter) a very timid, unassertive, spineless person, esp. one who is easily dominated or intimidated: a milquetoast who’s afraid to ask for a raise.

There was a very special decade called the ’90s when body piercings really meant something to angsty teens struggling to take a stand and establish themselves as edgy, independent, and most of all “unique” individuals. Nose rings were an especially popular way to show the world that you were a totally badass Adult-with-a-capital-A, yet didn’t trust anyone over the age of say, 24. Those teenagers grew up and got Real Jobs and eventually ditched the ironworks, which is why we caught a wave of nostalgia when we spotted supermodel Iris Strubegger rocking a rather major septum piercing in this month’s (what else?) French Vogue. Keep reading »
In a shockingly bad career move (in our humble opinion, at least), Megan Fox has announced she’s turned down an offer to star opposite Daniel Craig in the next Bond film. Really!? The chance to join the prestigious list of female A-listers with the looks and brains to challenge and roll with Bond? (We’ll have to exclude Denise Richards from that list though.) Apparently, she’s just not impressed by the notion and feels the role wouldn’t really add anything to her career. Huh.
