“Kell On Earth” Preview: This Show Is Going To Rule So Hard


We are OBSESSING over Kelly Cutrone‘s new reality show because not only does it look super intense and crazy, but it may be a lot closer to “reality” than most shows within this genre will ever get, especially when it comes to the fashion world. At NYC PR firm People’s Revolution, every day really is fraught with drama, and it offers a much less glamorous but ultimately more fascinating glimpse of the fashion world that’s a lot truer than anything you’d see on “Project Runway,” “America’s Top Model” or even, say, “The City.” Is it Feb. 1 yet?

Are Bejeweled Beetles A Creepy Or Chic Fashion Accessory?

Insects aren’t usually considered a must-have fashion accessory. But recently, a woman crossing the border between Mexico and Texas was stopped for her live beetle adorned with blue and gold jewels. The woman’s “brooch” was attached to her clothing with a gold chain and safety pin and was allowed to wander along her clothing. The beetle jewelry was seized by U.S. Customs and Border Protection for further identification.

Apparently, adorning live beetles with jewels and chains is nothing new. It’s been going on for decades, maybe centuries, and Jackie Kennedy reportedly had one decked out with emeralds. Keep reading »

Fashion Trend Watch: Male Models With Boners

In “Work Hard Play Hard,” Vice magazine kicks off what is sure to be the latest in fashion layout trends: male models sporting erections. Sure, the tie is great. Absolutely, what guy wouldn’t want to own that suit? And nothing says, “I’m worth it,” like a well-fitted pair of slacks. But what makes the man is the inappropriate, fully-clothed boner, isn’t it? I’m sure you would agree. Honestly, I don’t know who came up with this concept, but I think it is patently hilarious. Here’s to hoping it takes off, and the pages of GQ and Esquire are filled with men whose penises point the way in their pants. [Vice] Keep reading »

Why People Make Dumb Blonde Jokes: An Explanation

Researchers do all kinds of dumb studies but the latest dumb study gets kind of meta: it’s about why men tell “dumb blonde” jokes. According to the journal Society, men crack wise about “dumb blondes” because they’re intimidated by their perceived sexiness. You know, all those mystical, magical sexy-powers blondes keep in their hair!

Pardon me for sounding like a blonde here, but … like, duh. Keep reading »

Reuse, Recycle And Rekn.It Old Sweaters

Rekn.it is a re-knitting service begun by graphic designer Haik Avanian. How does it work? Easy. You print a shipping label from his adorably designed website, Rekn.it, slap it on an envelope containing your old, tired sweater, and send it off to Haik. Then his mom (yup, hi mom!) transforms it into a new and “useful object” for $30—January’s “useful object” is a scarf—and then he ships it on back to you! Next month, depending on your votes, it may be an iPod cozy, cut-off gloves, or even socks. Genius, no? [Rekn.it] Keep reading »

Hair Model Citizen: Someone Needs A Root Touch-Up

Today at Dior‘s spring 2010 couture collection, John Galliano channeled an exaggerated version of the Gibson Girls (not to be confused with those ladies of the Golden variety). By the look of model Kasia Struss, there was a touch of “Bride Of Frankenstein” thrown in the mix. We can only speculate what the rest of this ‘do looks like, but it definitely goes along with the gray hair trend that’s so hot right now. Getting the white hot mess look–even just streaks–is no easy task though. First, hair needs to be as blond as possible. Then you need to tone the hell out of it with a product like Manic Panic Virgin Snow White Toner Mixer, $13. Maintenance is a beyotch, and don’t come cryin’ to me if your strands feel like dry straw. Good luck with that. But yeah, it can look rad. P.S. If you have succeeded at this hair surgery, please, for the love of God, send us a pic at style@thefrisky.com. [The Guardian] Keep reading »

Rachel Bilson’s Do-Gooding Involves Diamonds

Every celebrity seems to have a pet cause, and we have a hard time keeping track of who supports what and deciding which ones we’re going to contribute to on our non-star salaries. Take Rachel Bilson. She designed this bracelet to help support the Diamond Empowerment Fund, which works to educate and develop disadvantaged people in African nations where diamonds are a natural resource. Would we have chosen to donate money to that organization on our own? Probably not, but we had already imagined the bracelet becoming our new signature accessory when we found out that $20 from each sale goes to the foundation. Isn’t it nice when buying something you already wanted benefits other people? [Macy's via Luxist] Keep reading »

A Closer Look At The Pi Phi Rush Dress Code Beauty Rules

By now you may have read about the outrageously delish sartorial demands sorority girls rushing Pi Phi at Cornell must contend with. In a world where LiLo-style jeggings are fully wrong, but Audrey Hepburn staple capri pants are not, we don’t wanna be right. We too have gotten our hands on this astounding tome. But the devil is truly in the details. Let’s take a look at the section called, “HAIR, MAKEUP & HANDS,” with the subtitle: “MY FAVORITE. These are life lessons so read carefully.”

Oh, in that case, we’re just gonna let the document speak for itself. Keep reading »

Random Fashion: Levi’s And Cram Jam Chest Make Denim Doggy

Have you ever heard of Cram Jam Chest? Us neither. From the looks of their half-in-Japanese website, they make stuffed art. In any case, they’ve teamed up with Levi’s to make a series of puppies made out of denim for the Levi’s store in Shibuya, Japan. Is this a good way to recycle jeans? These denim doggies are mighty cute … but not sure we’d put down for a stuffed animal. (No one can ever replace Winkie, the all but destroyed teddy bear you won’t admit to keeping under your pillow).
