A Dark Pout + Freckles = Fierce

Oh, the beauty of “flaws!” Photographers Julia Galdo and Cody Cloud, better known as JUCO, shot freckle-faced model Nikia Phoenix for their Freckles series. And now that I’ve peeped these beautifully fierce photos, I’m wishing I was born with spots of my own. Check out more of their photos here. Keep reading »

It Takes Shoes 1,000 Years To Biodegrade!?

If I had to estimate, I would assume I currently own and wear about 40 pairs of shoes, between all the boots, sandals, heels, and flip flops in my closet. You can say I’m a bit of a shoe addict. But after learning how long it takes for soles to compost, I’m re-thinking my love affair. According to Thomas Briel of BIO-D Biodegradable Shoes from Simple Shoes, your average footwear sits in a landfill for about 1,000 years before they decompose. Just think about that for a second. Over the course of a lifetime, I’m sure people accumulate hundreds of shoes. Multiply that by the population of the world, and we’re quickly destroying our lovely Earth just with what we wear on our feet. Because of this, Simple Shoes designed an entire collection of shoes that only take 20 years to compost, instead of the overwhelming 1,000. Now that I know the damage my shoes are doing to the environment, I’ll really think twice about buying a pair I don’t actually need. Will you? [Treehugger] Keep reading »

Quotable: Kelly Cutrone Got Drunk And Had Sex WIth Heather Locklear

“My whole thing is I’m busy, I’m a single mom, I’m working. I’m not an actress. The truth of the matter is, you know, with the exception of my mother, most people who know me know I don’t look great in makeup. When I was younger I was into it. You know, people have strong connotations of what women on television should say and what they should wear and how they should look. And I’m just not into it. The Bravo shot of me on the couch? It looks like I had sex with Heather Locklear and five margaritas.”

Umm, Johnny Depp Isn’t Actually All That Stylish, GQ

Johnny Depp is looking all sorts of fine shirtless on the cover of GQ’s “Most Stylish Men” issue, most likely because he’s Johnny Depp and looking all sorts of fine is pretty much his thing. We could look at shirtless Johnny Depp all day, secretly imagining bizarre scenarios that would all somehow result in us being really, really close to Johnny Depp and him not pressing charges. But here’s the thing: Johnny (we’re on a first name basis) is sexy, not particularly stylish. These, dear readers, are two very different qualities. Some men — like Pharell, who is also one of GQ’s top 25 — manage to be both. Depp, on the other hand, only has the hot part really down pat. Keep reading »

5 Style Tip-Offs: How To Know She Wants A Divorce

Real Housewives of Orange County” fans already know the (unsurprising) news—Tamra and Simon are headed for splitsville. Not only has Tamra carried on this season ad nauseum about how depressingly bad her marriage is (was?), but a week ago, Simon actually up and filed for divorce! Now he’s taken to his Bravo TV blog (yes, he has one apparently) to blab about the situation: “In fact, she has told me recently that she is happy being single. And even the way she has dressed lately (she does look really hot) tells me that being single is what she wants … ” Huh. He got me thinking, does the way a woman dresses and puts herself together actually tell the tale of a relationship in trouble? After the jump five maybe-sorta style and beauty tip-offs … [Bravo TV] Keep reading »

Beyoncé Used To Iron Her Hair—What Were Your Misguided Beauty Blunders?

Stars! They’re just like us! In this month’s Allure, Beyoncé talks about her silly beauty regime that wasn’t always first-class:

“I remember when I started doing my hair myself—I cut bangs, and I started curling my hair and pressing it, literally, with an iron … The girls from Destiny’s Child, we would put our hair on the ironing board, and iron it, which is so crazy! My mom [who used to own a hair salon] was like, ‘We have to get you out of your own hair, because you are destroying it!’”

Does that bring you back to any of the crazy things you did as you discovered womanhood, and before you really figured things out? Or, in Beyoncé’s case, were able to afford the proper tools? Please, share your first-time mascara blunders, eyeliner confusion, and unforgivable hairstyles from your misguided youth in the comments below! [Allure] Keep reading »

Jessica Alba Pulls Herself Up By Her Bootstraps—Literally

The good news: We’re kind of digging Jess Alba’s strappy boots. The bad news: They’re Prada and cost a little over a grand. [Los Angeles, 1/20/2010] Keep reading »

The Frisky Gets Minxed

Minx Nails became a favorite among celebrities and fashionistas for its bold patterns and metallic colors. But now, they’re offering a new line of nail coverings that are great for everyday wear. The Teaser line still has the playful metallic undertones Minx is known for, but also an iridescence that is more subtle. “The color just keeps teasing you depending on the angle, the light, and what you are wearing, and everyone knows we Minxes love a good tease,” said co-founder Janice Jordan in a press release. I had the pleasure of getting a Minx manicure at Fifi International Spa in NYC and chose the Tease Me Black and Red nail coverings. The color did change between red and black, and sometimes it even looked copper. Check out The Frisky’s original video above on how to get Minxed. Keep reading »

Cardboard Furniture: Love It Or Hate It?

Designer Nikki of WhiMSY love had recently moved when she had a friend coming to stay as a house guest. What to do with a totally under-decorated basement and a butt load of leftover brown boxes? Nikki got all crafty and created a clever guest bedroom suite out of cardboard, and stuck the decor to the walls with duct tape. I love this eco-friendly alternative to having house guests sleeping on an air mattress on the floor. What do you think of this low-fi redo? [Apartment Therapy] Keep reading »

How We Live Now: Debenhams Launches Divorce Registry

With divorce rates on the rise and an increasingly cynical view on lasting marriage, it’s a wonder someone hadn’t come up with this before—Debenhams, the British department store, has just launched a divorce registry service. So now, recent divorcees may find themselves filling out gift lists for themselves, just like they did a few months/years ago for their marriages. Odd, yes. But it’s also quite practical when you think about how much it costs to set up a new life when all of a sudden, you don’t have a teapot anymore because your ex got that in the settlement as well. Not that we’re advocating rewards for splitting up, but how come traditional gift-giving is always about celebration, and not to cheer you up? [Reuters] Keep reading »
