3 Office-Appropriate Makeup Looks That Also Work Overtime

Pre-Fall Beauty
Prepare for fall in the prettiest way possible. Read More »

At The Frisky offices, it’s a rare day when one of us doesn’t come in with blue eyeshadow, orange lipstick, or a dog… but it goes without saying that such isn’t the case for most workplaces. There are only so many times you can wear mascara, a touch of tasteful blush, and lip balm before it gets really, really old. If you’ve surpassed that point, like, yesterday, check out these three pretty, office-appropriate beauty looks — they aren’t quite the fuchsia lip stain or smoky eyes you might choose to sport in your free time, but when it comes to the 9-5, we guess they’ll just have to suffice. (And on the off chance you leave your lipstick at home, they can just as easily work the other 16 hours, too.)

Fall Must Haves: 10 Marvelous Motorcycle Jackets

Newflash: you don’t have to ride a motorcycle to wear a motorcycle jacket! Hell, you don’t have to go anywhere near a motorcycle. Regardless of your ideal form of recreation, motorcycle jackets add a suggestion of down-for-anything edge to even your most virtuous fall look. It’s just as hip when worn as a contrasting touch to a girly dress as it is when paired with skinny jeans and a white T. The shape’s most well-known iteration is in black leather (or pleather, if you please), but we’re really feeling the equally cool, if slightly less obvious, fabric versions, in a bevy of fall-ready textures and colors. Click through for our ten picks from the softer side of the spectrum (half are under $100!), and see if you can resist picking up just one…

Karl Knows Klass: Operation Lagerfeld Is Now In Motion

Attention, wanton young ladies everywhere (shit, are they talking about me?): Chanel is coming for you, and it isn’t going to be pretty. Well, maybe not quite, but police in the British town of Bolton are laying down the law with Operation Lagerfeld, a zero-tolerance plan targeting teenage girls “drinking in the streets in the early hours of the morning.” Before anyone cries slut-shaming, I think it’s pretty clear that the intention of this scheme is to keep said girls safe, because as town sergeant Dave Tann explains, “They are vulnerable and could become the victim of a serious crime.” It’s only natural that they bring Karl’s name into the mess, because really, who better to instill a touch of modesty in young libertines than the arbiter of class himself, who’s been known to occasionally advise that certain women should only show their backsides?

Gwen Stefani And Prada Are Cool With Coloring Outside The (Lip) Lines

Awesome Orange-Reds
Can you guess which is $25 and which is $1? Read More »

I’m like a magpie as far as beauty products go — I’m drawn instinctively to anything bright, sparkly, bizarre, or beautiful — but when it comes to what I put on my own face, I’m an unlikely makeup classicist, and I most definitely stay inside the lines. At the S/S 2013 Prada show in Milan, models (like Jessica Stam, left) walking the runway sported fluorescent red lips that erred ever-so-slightly outside the natural barrier, resulting in an overall effect that’s more cartoonish than chic (wax lips, anybody? I ate a fair few in my day. Spoiler: they are disgusting). General consensus seems to be that this exaggerated lip look is best left to ’90s pop stars — like, say, Gwen Stefani, who showed off a similar shape at the iHeartRadio Music Festival. Frankly, I wouldn’t be caught dead in it. Would you?

Love It Or Leave It: Emma Watson’s Indecisive Dress-Over-Pants Look?

Ah, I remember the good old days, when I was 11 and sometimes liable to wear denim skirts over my jeans! Emma Watson is ever-adorable, but I’m a little concerned about the logic of this outfit. I know that this type of dress or skirt-over-pants situation is supposedly making a comeback (so I’ve heard), but really, is it ever a good look? Is it just impossible, even for someone as charmingly gamine as Emma, to pull off? The top is edging into dress territory; couldn’t she just as easily have worn tights to better result? I say let it die, babes… but what do you think?

Are you in the mood to buy some makeup? How about some makeup sold by shapeshifting aliens bearing a vague but bizarre resemblance to the Kardashian sisters? Well, now you can! Or soon, I guess. But seriously, they usually at least do a pretty good approximation of humans. Not this time, my friends. Not this time. [Celebuzz]

I Hope You Don’t Like This Dress Too Much, Because It’ll Cost You $5.7 Million

Black diamonds are a girl's best friend. Read More »

Just in case Kelly Osbourne‘s $250,000 manicure wasn’t vulgar ridiculous pointless fancy enough for you, try this on for size (or don’t, we’re thinking it’s probably more of a museum piece): “young, famous” British designer Debbie Wingham (yeah, we’ve never heard of her either) is now presenting this $5.7 million dress, which she calls “an anthem for a beautiful woman who loves life” and capitalism. As it so happens, the peplum dress, like Kelly’s manicure, was crafted with black diamonds — 50 of them, to be exact.

Our friends over at The Gloss raise a fantastic point: these black diamonds are sooooooo rare and expensive, you can line a dress in them, then crush ‘em up and funnel them into a bottle of black nail polish. No word yet on whether the manicure is World’s Most Expensive (is there even a category for that?), but the World Record Academy has confirmed that Wingham’s dress has set the official world record for Most Expensive Dress. So, um … congrats? [The Gloss]

The Soapbox: In Response To Lady Gaga And Her Proposed “Body Revolution”

I have vilified Lady Gaga in the past (to much condemnation, given her rabid fanbase): the contrived, weird-for-attention shtick really wears on me, particularly considering it comes hand-in-hand with what basically amounts to catchy, radio-friendly pop music with a pseudo-controversial religious message here and there. I can live with her message of peace, love, and acceptance, but that isn’t enough to make a fan out of me. Here’s what is: in defense of her recent 25-pound weight gain and the ensuing media scrutiny, Gaga gets naked, or at least stripped to her skivvies, to set the “Body Revolution” in motion.

A foolish part of me thought for a hot second that Kanye West‘s influence on the wardrobe of his “Perfect Bitch” would actually have a positive effect on Kim’s trademark “all things tight” style. I can now honestly say I liked it better before, because what in the actual fuck is this? Kanye West’s idea of a really great outfit, is what. Terrifying. Nightmares. [Photo: FameFlynet]

You know, body-con dresses don’t usually do it for me. I would take a flowy Greek goddess gown over an Hervé Léger any day of the week. The squeeze-every-curve style is sexy, of course, but something about it is just so … obvious, even a little cheap (okay, a lot cheap). It also doesn’t help that women wearing them generally look like they just. Can’t. Breathe. But if anyone is going to take a fitted dress known for its slightly risqué nature and wear it to elegant perfection, it’s going to be Penélope Cruz, right? This is a look — tight fit, floral print, hot pink clutch — that I would generally hate on anyone else, but Penélope makes it look, well, classy. Do I sense some black magic at work?
