How To Make Your Hair And Makeup Last All Night

The usual New Year’s Eve conundrum—you go out looking hot, hair and makeup fixed just so, and by the time midnight rolls around your ‘do is a frizz-ball mess (or a flat mess, depending) and your eye shadow is half-way down your face. Rather than constantly running to the bathroom for touch-ups and carrying a whole case of makeup and hair sprays/clips/etc. in your purse, why not make things easier on yourself this year with a bit of pre-party prep? A few stay-put tips, after the jump! Keep reading »

The Brief Is Back

According to the New York Times (and they’ve been on a real roll this week), when it comes to the male undies category, it’s all about the brief. When did the reign of the boxer come to an end exactly? It’s impossible to be certain, but it could have something to do with the recession: “A few years ago, brands started coming out with more and more collections and retiring them sooner,” said Michael Kleinmann, the president of Freshpair, a 10-year-old online underwear retailer. “But when the economy started changing, they scaled it back.” Whatever the reason, according to our rather epic post, “What His Underwear Says About Him,” this is a style favored by Tom Cruise, military types and hipsters. Now we can add fashion-forward gents to the list, too. [New York Times]

Lady Gaga And Perez Hilton Go Back To The ’80s

Even though, technically, these kids missed most of the decade. Thoughts anyone? We don’t know, it’s a little matchy matchy. But extra style points for coordinating Gaga’s wig and Perez’s banana boxers. We never would’ve thought of that pairing. [Miami, 12/30/09] Keep reading »

What Are You Wearing For New Year’s Eve?

After way more time than I care to admit, I finally found a dress to wear tonight at the little New Year’s Eve get-together I’m hosting. In honor of tonight’s blue moon, I decided on this blue dress from French Connection. OK, full disclosure: I didn’t actually make the blue moon connection until after I purchased the dress, but seeing as my husband will be wearing his fabulous baby blue tuxedo purchased a couple months ago at a vintage sale, I think we can successfully claim a blue moon theme. I’m going to pair the dress with this necklace, opaque tights, and black patent leather heels, and if I can manage to get a good picture, I’ll post it next week. But, more important, what are you wearing tonight? We’d love to see you all gussied up in your New Year’s best, so send us a photo (tips@thefrisky.com) and we’ll put together a slideshow next week like the one we did for your awesome Halloween costumes. Have a safe and wonderful new year, everyone! Keep reading »

Cassette Tape Tie

OK, so it’s a little pricey for a tie, but pretty cool once you take a closer look. No, ladies and gentlemen, that tie is not made of mere fabric; it’s actually a whole lot of recycled cassette tape.This strikes us as the perfect gift for that music lover who “has everything” because, let’s face it, there’s a good chance he does not in fact have this.

You’d Better Work!

This is why I love Marc Jacobs. Just like me, he views every beach outing as a saucy photoshoot opportunity. [Saint Barthelemy, France, 12/29/09] Keep reading »

Ooh, Snap: Did Target Copy Itself?

Up top there, a belt (a kind of ugly one at that) from the Rodarte Target collection. Down below, a Sonia Kashuk duffle bag, also manufactured by Target. Hmm … those two look pretty gosh-darn similar in terms of material. Remarked the Racked reporter, who posted the pics, the Kashuk bag “in terms of how the material looks and feels, [is] a dead ringer for the Rodarte belt.” BTW, the reporter also mentioned how crappy the fabric is too. So does that mean that Target is recycling leftover stock? Here’s an interesting ethical question: Does that take something away from the design or even point to self-plagiarism? What about two different high-profile designers creating dresses from the same fabric because they shop at the same trimmings store?

What do you think: A mistake on Target/Rodarte’s part or big whoop, who cares? [Racked] Keep reading »

Louis Vuitton And Damien Hirst Put Some Junk In Their Trunks

Lindsay Lohan’s New Clothes Line Sketches Are In!

Joy! Lindsay Lohan is bringing her “designing talents” to yet another platform. She’s just announced that her 6126 line, which sold only leggings, will soon include a full range of dresses, jackets, tops, and vests. (Apparently, 6126, despite its laughable attempt at serious fashion through leggings, did quite well in business.) LiLo is quite excited about this new direction, and is, in fact, even desperate for you to know about it, so she tried to do a bit of her own PR by posting to Twitter yesterday: “i need MORE followers i am so sad about this, how can i tell everyone about my 6126 full collection COMING OUT! all clothing.”

First look at the sketches for the expanded 6126 shows drawings that look like they could have possibly been done by Lohan herself with a sort of middle school illustrative feeling. Looks like the wares will be a bit like Lohan—vixen-like with a touch of Hollywood trash. Think suede studded bustiers, skin-tight minis with exposed zippers, and cropped leather jackets. Check out a few more pics after the jump and tell us what you think! [WWD] Keep reading »
