Jason Wu Designs Creepy-Chic Madame Alexander Dolls

Jason Wu, arguably the most adorable new-ish American designer in the business these days, has just upped his awesome factor by designing limited-edition dolls for Madame Alexander. We’ve dug around for some images and are officially entranced by the creepy coolness of the mini models in their realistic frocks and gorgeous shoes. (Glance away from the amazing blue ‘fro and covetable dress for a minute and you’ll notice the doll at left is wearing mini Louboutins.) More images after the jump. [Refinery29] Keep reading »

Would You Wear Heels In The Snow?

I’m a high heel lover, but even I have to admit defeat when it snows. My rubber-soled boots win every time because I like my limbs. Anyway, I’ve noticed quite a few women wearing their heels in the snow on my favorite street style site, Chictopia. So I wonder, do you wear heels in the snow? Keep reading »

And The Prize Goes To … The Best Gift You Bought Yourself

Last Friday, we asked you to tell us about an item you bought to treat yourself, and you seriously blew us away. We almost teared up a few times because your stories of personal purchases showed what’s important to you, and how much you value yourself. After much deliberation, we decided reader Maggie’s story was our favorite:

I recently landed a sweet job as a nanny. This is my first real job outside of college, and I’m like Mary Poppins. I live in their attic and have lots of stuff in my bag. I love the kids I nanny for, and the family has made me feel so welcome and loved in their home. I used part of my first paycheck on some artwork for my little attic apartment. I bought a block print of a vintage bicycle from an artist on Etsy, and I’m so pleased. It’s the first piece of real art I’ve been able to buy for myself since I became a real person outside of the college bubble, and it’s nice having some art that I love to put up in my new home and make the space my own.

Thanks for all of your thoughtful answers, and don’t forget to enter to win our daily Valentine’s Day giveaways Keep reading »

Hair Model Citizen: Dannii Minogue Is So Glamourous

How freakin’ cute does Kylie’s sister’s hair look on the cover of U.K. Glamour? It’s a little bit Marilyn with a whole lot of Jackie mixed in, all updated for 2010. How to get the look? It’s basically a really short, asymmetrical bob that’s been curled to flip at the ends and teased for volume. We think it’s a fresh way to stand out from all the extension-addled starlets out there.

Who Had Money On Her Hands (Not Mind) At The Grammys?

This style maven wore custom Minx Nails in a money design at the 2010 Grammy Awards. And she even stepped up her Minx game by adding rhinestones to her nails. Find out the answer after the jump. [LA, 2/2/10] Keep reading »

A Month Of Outfits Worn By Alexa Chung

Many of us at The Frisky were completely bummed when Alexa Chung‘s MTV show, “It’s On With Alexa Chung,” got canceled, not because we watched it regularly (we’re at work at the time, as we suspect most of the audience was), but because it gave us the opportunity to see Alexa’s outfits on a daily basis. Thankfully, she’s on the February cover of British Vogue, and she’s doing a style diary on their website all month. The best part about her “Today I’m Wearing … ” posts is that you can tell the photos aren’t professionally shot since they’re sort of fuzzy, like cell phone snaps. Even so, we get the idea of what she’s got on and her descriptions are priceless. Yesterday, she paired “a bow in my hair by Kleenex” with a white Topshop dress, and today she stood at what she calls a “petrol station” and said her chic nerd ensemble was “boring …. Tomorrow will be better.” We’ll be checking back to see if she keeps her word. [] Keep reading »

Your Dream “Jersey Shore” Vacation, On The Cheap!

It’s time for a vacation, right? I’ve got an idea for ya. Why don’t you rent the house the “Jersey Shore” kids stayed in for their wild summer in Seaside Heights? Currently, the house will run you $3,500 a night, but come May—when beach season rolls around again—that will go way up, to $6,500 a night, reportedly three times what the house rented for in the pre-reality show days. But think about it: You and your honey could get close in the hot tub, which presumably has been scrubbed down since the summer. You could make a big Italian meal like “The Situation,” cuddle like Ronnie and Sammi, or see if you can master the duck phone a little better than Snooki. Sure, it’ll be freezing out, but you don’t actually have to leave the house. Heck, it’s not like the crew went to the beach more than once all summer. [NY Daily News] Keep reading »

Win This! Erica Weiner Skeleton Key Necklace

Happy almost-Valentine’s Day! Whether you’re single or taken, The Frisky wants to be your Valentine. Look for a contest each day leading up to Feb. 14. Prizes will include makeup, books, lingerie, jewelry, and more, but each one only lasts a day—enter now!

Typical Valentine’s Day jewelry is big on hearts, and while that shape is quite nice, we like the idea of keys as a symbol of affection even better. See, we already have a blood pumper of our own, so why do we need another one? A key, on the other hand, means that someone wants to let you inside his life — whether it opens his apartment door, or his heart. [$45, Elsewares]

We’re giving away one Erica Weiner skeleton key necklace from Elsewares, but you have to work if you want it. Do you think you should let your significant other know about the skeletons in your closet? Share your advice in the comments by 3:39 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 6 (that’s tomorrow!). We’ll pick our favorite response and announce the winner. You must live in the U.S. or Canada to win. Good luck!

UPDATE! The winner of the Erica Weiner necklace is taralee for this comment:

I think it really just depends on what the “skeletons” are. I really don’t care about who my husband boned (pun intended) before we got together or how many times he drank excessively and did something regrettable. The past is the past and people change… sometimes. Things that I would like to know about: STDs (current and history), previous convictions to include: rape, murder, assault, etc etc etc and whether or not they live in their mother’s basement. Hey… a girl has got to start somewhere.

Thank you for all your comments! Keep reading »

How The First Lady Gets Dressed

We think it’s hard enough to pick out something to wear to go to work, so we can’t even imagine what it would be like to be the First Lady and really have to think all of your outfits through. Apparently, Michelle Obama doesn’t do it all on her own, she tells the “Today” show. She has help (which she only refers to as “people,” but we imagine they are stylists), and they often pick out a week or even two weeks of outfits. If we could plan that far ahead … we’d have so much more time for other things. Check out her interview with Matt Lauer—the fashion goodies start at 2:26. [Today Show] Keep reading »

Gaga Dolla Bills, Ya’ll

I love Lady Gaga just as much as everyone else. But there’s a surefire way to kill a good thing, and that’s overexposure. Right about now, I’m thinking we should take it easy on the Gaga obsession, for fear that we’ll become sick of her like a bad romance. Despite my fears, Craig Gleason got a bit creative with her over-the-top outfits and headpieces, and upped her importance to presidential status. Instead of leaving good old George Washington on the dollar bills, Craig painted over our first President, turning the founding father into the Fame Monster. We’re especially loving the replication of her V cover and her Mickey Mouse sunnies. You can purchase a framed set of three for $30. [Rakk and Ruin via Refinery29] Keep reading »
