Hair Model Citizen: Little Miss Perfect

Sarah Paxton is filming “The Beautiful Life” and she is giving me a serious case of nostalgia in terms of remembering that evil blond cheerleader that totally ruined my life in high school. (OK, we didn’t have sports and it was art school and everyone was really nice.) But! This hair is, like, traditional pretty, pretty princess hair that’s modern because it’s got texture and it’s just slightly messy. To copy this bitch’s perfect hair (I mean the girl, not the dog), apply Garnier Fructis Style Soft Curl Cream to slightly damp hair, twist large sections with your fingers, and allow to air dry. To get a perfectly mussed look, rub a balloon on your head for a little extra static. Seriously. It works. [NYC, 9/23/09] Keep reading »

The Frisky Editors Go E-Commerce Crazy!


It should come as no surprise to readers that The Frisky staff is really into fashion, after clicking through our daily outfits for the last few weeks. Chances are, a lot of what we — specifically myself, Catherine, and Annika — have worn has come from shopping on Gilt.com, an online sample sale website. Each day the site has a handful of new designer sales starting at NOON ON THE DOT and the excitement that fills the office at this moment is, uh, baffling to some. Specifically, to one of our male co-workers — yes, they exist and no they don’t fan us with palm fronds all day — who shot the video above while we engaged in a particularly nail-biting shopping frenzy during one of Gilt’s final sales. For the record, I have worn the jeans. The top still has tags. Keep reading »

Costume Or High Fashion?

London Fashion Week, more than New York, Milan, or Paris, is a place where crazy fashion gets showcased and appreciated. Yesterday’s shows were no exception. While it didn’t have the star power present at Burberry, Katie Eary’s menswear collection was pretty special. Keep reading to find out why. Keep reading »

Are You Prepared For A $7100 Cab Ride?

I’m all about loving New York City. After moving here at age 18 for college and never leaving, I’m still discovering new gems in my city and reasons to be even more obsessed. But when it comes to city attractions like the Empire State Building and taxi cabs, I like to keep them just where they are.

So with the news that Bottega Veneta has created a limited-edition handbag in the spirit of the monstrous yellow and black cars, I’m still recovering from the price tag. For only $7100 one of the 50 specially made handbags, called the NYCabat, can be yours. Thank you, but I think for that price I’ll be looking for a bag that’s less of a tourist trap and more of an iconic piece. Like a bag modeled after the Met or Cloisters, instead of a taxi which reminds me of drivers coming to screeching halts and denying my credit card because the machine “doesn’t work.”

How do you feel about spending $7100 on a Bottega Veneta bag modeled after taxi cabs, which, allow me to mention, are already too pricey as it is. [The Moment]

Quick Pic: “What Was I Thinking?”

Dear, sweet Rihanna, ever since you emerged from the perfect MTV pop star box and started taking some major fashion and beauty risks, we have supported you every step of the way. But these orangey streaks are one (mis)step we simply cannot take with you. Dude, Halloween’s not until the end of next month. [NYC, 9/22/09] Keep reading »

When Is It Cool (Enough) To Start Wearing Tights?

We have to take issue with September because, yes, it makes us all giddy for fall fashion, but it’s often still too hot to wear most of it. Sweaters, fine—you can layer and take them on and off. But it’s not like you can so easily slip your pantyhose off when you’re walking down the street. (Or maybe you do. We don’t know.) Do you have this problem around this time of year? Where it feels really out of place to wear tights because even though it might be kind of chilly today, it seems weird that you were just sweating your ass off in a sundress in yesterday’s 80-degree weather? For us, September can often still feel like summer. Keep reading »

A Brazilian For Your Head? Sort Of.

You may have heard about the horrors of Brazilian hair straightening treatments (and, of course, the wax de Brazil is no fun either)—how some keratin formulas can cause hair damage. Or if you style a ponytail in the first few days post-salon, it can leave long-lasting bumps in your mane. One beauty writer for the U.K.’s Telegraph has found what sounds like the dream hair treatment for curly girls or daily flat-ironers: the Express Brazilian, a special keratin-rich treatment that she describes as a “long-lasting blow-dry.” While the regular Brazilian normally lasts for months, the Express is only good for about a week or however long it takes you to get through six to eight washes.

How Do We Feel About Celebs Wearing Fat Suits?

The hallmark of many an Oscar winner, nominee and/or serious actor is to delve so deeply into their roles that they both mentally and physically “become” the character. When it comes to method acting, the whole process sounds kind of creepy and possibly schizophrenic, but when it comes to the latter, it’s pretty straightforward and usually involves clothes, hair and makeup, and is sometimes accompanied by extreme weight loss (Christian Bale), a new nose (Nicole Kidman) or eating a whole bunch of doughnuts and pizza in order to get chubs fast à la Jared Leto and Renee Zellweger, who has already done it twice for those “Bridget Jones” movies. Today E! reports that Zellweger will forgo weight gain and instead wear a fat suit (like Gwyneth Paltrow in “Shallow Hal”) for “Bridget Jones 3.” [E!]

Sea Of Shoes’ Jane Aldridge To Attend Fancy Deb Ball In Paris

What a charmed life teenage fashion bloggers lead. They sit front row at fashion shows, grace the covers and pages of magazines, and, apparently, get to wear Chanel Haute Couture dresses. Jane Aldridge of Sea of Shoes, who also designs footwear for Urban Outfitters, will attend the fancy-pants Hôtel de Crillon Bal des Débutantes in November wearing Chanel Haute Couture.
