We See Chick Flicks: “Made In Dagenham”

Starring Sally Hawkins, Miranda Richardson, Rosamund Pike, and Bob Hoskins

We all know what 1960s America looked like for white-collar professional women like the ones on “Mad Men.” While Joan and Peggy were fighting off handsy account men in New York’s office towers, women in working-class towns like Dagenham, England, were doing hand-to-hand combat as well — only against the entire Ford Motor Company. “Made In Dagenham” is based on the true story of 187 women who sewed car seat upholstery for a Ford plant in Britain and what happens when they banded together to fight exploitation by their bosses.

When The Frisky Took On Ted

A couple of weeks ago, The Frisky participated in TakeOnTed, the first-ever remote-controlled digital styling project with Ted Baker London. I was tasked with styling a man and woman for her hypothetical first time meeting his parents at their Notting Hill home. I sent tweets to #TakeOnTed to give directions on my styling. For her, I went for an outfit that was smart and approachable-looking, but also conveyed that she had style. I gave her lips a sheer rosy-tinted stain because a saturated red lip is too bold for meeting the ‘rents, and left her hair curly and bouncy. I think the guy in this situation is at an advantage because he doesn’t have to impress his own parents. So I kept his look layered and pulled together. Check out the video above from the live styling session. And peep the finished photo and get the fashion details after the jump. Keep reading »
