Elizabeth Taylor Had Extra Eyelashes

Long before Latisse or any of the other eyelash lengthening potions were developed, Elizabeth Taylor rocked extra-long, extra-thick lashes. And now, just weeks after her death, the truth behind her lush lashes has been revealed: Taylor was born with distichiasis–or double rows of eyelashes. Thankfully, the mutation had few negative effects — though in some cases it can cause problems if the lashes begin to grow inward — but it did make some assume she was wearing makeup when she was not. Roddy McDowell, her co-star in “Lassie Come Home,” recalled:

“On her first day of filming, they took one look at her and said: ‘Get that girl off the set – she has too much eye make-up on, too much mascara’ … Guess what? They learned that she had no mascara on. She has a double set of eyelashes. Now, who has double eyelashes except a girl who was absolutely born to be on the big screen?”

I’m Not In A Bad Mood, This Is Just The Way My Face Looks

Personal pet peeve: when a stranger on the street tells me to cheer up and “smile!” because I’m not walking around town with a s**t-eating grin on my face. Usually I actually do scowl and don’t respond, or if I’m in a truly bad mood, I’ll retort that only looney bin escapees walk around smiling to themselves and at leering strangers. But going forward, I am going to calmly explain that I suffer from CBF and then they will feel bad for having insulted someone with a condition that they cannot help. Ha!

We Heart These Joelle Earrings

In celebration of the bonds between friends and loved ones, Joelle by Marc Joseph has created a collection of whimsical silver trinkets. We’re quite smitten with the “I Heart U” stud earrings because of the simple yet chic design and message. The carved letters provide an strong contrast to the mirror finish of the earrings. The posts are 10 kt. white gold, so those with sensitive skin don’t have to worry about an allergic reaction. These Joelle studs are the perfect gift for your loved ones, but you might just want to keep a pair for yourself!

Whose Style Do You Want To Steal?

Celebs–they have all the luck. Not only do they have heaps of money and fame, but they’re often given the most stunning clothes for free. It’s just not fair, so we’re doing something to level the playing field by stealing their most special looks and making them our own. So tell us: Do you have a celeb outfit you’d love to steal? {encode=”julie@thefrisky.com” title=”Send us a picture”} of leave a link for us in the comments, and we’ll do our best to find you an equally amazing outfit for a lot less!

Sweet Valley Style Stealer: Are You An Elizabeth Or A Jessica?

Today is an exciting day. Sitting on my nightstand, the just released book, Sweet Valley Confidential, about the Wakefield twins 10 years after they’ve left high school. As a hardcore SVH fan — I collect the books and still read them on the beach during the summer — I cannot wait to dive in and find out what that bookworm Liz Wakefield is up to now that she lives in New York, and whether Jessica Wakefield’s bad girl antics have finally landed her in some real hot water. And, oh, I am dying to read how their style has evolved since the years when they wore matching lavaliere necklaces. After the jump, what I imagine naughty Jessica and good girl Liz would wear now!

North Carolina Crowns A Bald Beauty Queen

I love it when a beauty pageant doesn’t push a tired, old beauty standard! This weekend, the 2011 Mrs. Black North Carolina pageant crowned the state’s very first bald beauty queen. Sandra Dubose-Gibson, 37, lost all her hair at age 25 when she developed alopecia, an autoimmune disease that attacks the hair follicles. Sandra, who works as a singer and an inspirational speaker, says she wants to continue to spread her message of embracing inner beauty, which she found once she accepted that her hair did not define her. That’s the kind of pageant message I can actually get behind.

After the jump, check out a music video for her song “I’m Beautiful,” which shows Sandra venturing out in the world with a bald head for the very first time: Keep reading »
