Swiss Army Wants You To Smell Like Efficiency

Victorinox, purveyors of Swiss Army knives and all manners of utilitarian items, is no longer content with being confined to outdoorsy devices. They’ve moved into the scent market with the recent release of Swiss Unlimited, an eau de toilette that smells like “Swiss essence with notes of wooded silver fir, alpine herbs, and absinthe.” So rejoice, you can now smell like nature and illegal, hallucinogenic alcohol any time you want! And because the handy-dandy bottle—which looks more like a flask than a perfume container—comes with a carabiner, you’ll never be without the option of freshening up, even when stranded in the woods being mauled by a grizzly bear.

It Costs $30,000 To Look Like A Poor Man’s Britney Spears

Lorna Bliss used to look a little bit like Britney Spears. The resemblance wasn’t striking, but she says there were some similarities and people on the street pointed it out fairly regularly. Now, Lorna Bliss looks quite a lot like Britney Spears. Enough, in fact, that she gets paid thousands of pounds as a celebrity lookalike. But imitating one of Hollywood’s most batshit crazy pop stars comes at a cost.

Apparently Lorna spends about $30,000 a year to look like Britney’s double. From facials to clothes of questionable fashion merit and putty-like concealer to hide those oh-so-un-Britney freckles, this job isn’t cheap. But while we kind of respect Lorna for getting way into it instead of half-assing the job, we’re pretty sure that she could have achieved “essence of Britney” for the cost of some cheetos, hair clippers and some busted fake nails.

Paper Doll Boyfriend: Dress Your Dude In Any Style You Fancy!

This is Frisky blogger Jessica Wakeman’s boyfriend. Isn’t he cute? (We’ll answer for you: yes). The thing is, just because your boyfriend is adorable as he is, doesn’t mean that it wouldn’t be kind of fun to see him dressed entirely different. With this in mind, The Frisky presents a new weekly post: Paper Doll Boyfriends. Whether your guy’s style is heinous and you want a complete change; or you’re just a little curious about how he’d look if he switched from jeans to something totally not his style, like colored linen pants; or you’re into him as he is, but wouldn’t mind seeing him suited up a la Clive Owen, we’re here to make your wildest sartorial boyfriend dreams come true.

Just send a full-body picture of the guy and a description of the style you’ve got in mind or him to tips@thefrisky.com with “Paper Doll Boyfriend” in the headline. Pictures facing straight forward without bulky clothing or crossed arms and legs are ideal. Nothing naked, either, you can keep that view all to yourself… Keep reading »

Beauty Tips For Stealing The Bride’s Show

You can’t wear a white dress to a wedding. It’s just not a subtle enough method for stealing the show. Turn up at the ceremony wearing a floor-length cream silk number, and suddenly everyone’s muttering insults about how you’re the “Inappropriate One.” Instead, walk in looking a level of gorgeous that diverts attention without being completely trashy. Kate Bosworth’s Met Ball hair and makeup (and dress) absolutely slaughtered the competition, and we show you how to steal her look after the jump. Keep reading »

Beauty Tips For City Hall Weddings

If your friend’s getting married at City Hall, she’s probably a no-nonsense girl. She wants to get the job done and she wants it done now. This doesn’t mean you can put in zero effort just ’cause it’s not a big ceremony and the selection of groomsmen is tiny. We love Cynthia Nixon’s look for its sophisticated prettiness and tell you how to get it after the jump! Keep reading »

Beauty Tips For Beach Weddings

Beach weddings, much like daytime weddings, are not a time to go crazy with the makeup and prom-like hair. Keep it lovely by working the bright eyes and clean-looking skin. And, because you’re going to look naturally-pretty instead of hooker-hot, pick a dress with a fun neckline or a statement necklace to add a little something-something to your look. Keep reading »

Why Will People Keep Buying Chanel and Vuitton In A Recession?

Apparently Topshop, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, and Forever 21 aren’t doing too badly in the recession, even as their peers are experiencing millions of dollars in losses. A WWD survey of a 100 luxury industry experts came up with those four brands as the most likely to succeed in this economy and, as you can see, there’s quite a disparity in price points. We understand why Topshop and Forever 21 will do well—they’re on trend, fun and dirt cheap—but Chanel and Louis Vuitton need a little further explanation. Why Chanel and LV, not Prada and Dior? What is it about these particular $3,000 bags that makes them relatively recession-proof?

Gallery: Celebs In Scrunchies

So much more than a mere rubber band and yet serving the same function, the scrunchie has been in retirement for years now, biding its time like Britney Spears of Lord Voldermort. But the time has finally come for a comeback. And what a comeback it is. Aside from a forceful push by American Apparel, which now offer scrunchies in hipster-approved incarnations like gold lamé and neo- yellow, Jessica Biel—she of the taut ass and pretty clothes—is an early re-adopter of the scrunchie. Check out the illustrative image above for visual evidence. (Ignore the fact that the ponytail is a suspiciously a different color from the rest of her hair, squint hard, and you’ll almost believe that she’s scrunchied out of her own accord.)

The Olsen Twins’ Yin and Yang Fashion

After years of matching outfits, Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen have made quite a stink about being “individuals,” which often means that their style choices are entirely different. Such was the case at last night’s premier of “The Hangover” in L.A,. with Ashley looking glam and sleek in a floor-length black dress and Mary Kate looking like a particularly fashionable, ’70s-influenced bag lady. That said, Mary Kate’s multi-textured, heavily-accessorized outfit certainly did have a look to it, even if everything together felt like a little too much. Learn how to steal their respective styles after the jump… Keep reading »
