Bridal Shop Creates “Twilight” Prom Dresses. We Are Afraid.

Much has been made of the blue prom dress Bella Swan (or Kristen Stewart, depending on how much you blur fantasy and reality) wears in the “Twilight” movie. You may have heard of it. Countless teen magazines and websites have scoured the market looking for similar styles, but nothing quite compares to this rendition spotted at a Port Angeles, Washington bridal shop. Owner Belva Bodey claims she was inspired to cop the design because in the movie Bella shops in their town for a book. Call it a leap of faith, but she believes Bella would have bought her prom dress from the same town. Talk about mixing up your fact and fiction. Yeeps! Incidentally, the green dress pictured is one Bella supposedly wears to her birthday party in “New Moon.” Once again, rabid “Twilight” fans scare us more than actual vampires do! Keep reading »

Blue Lips At Doo.Ri: Would You Try The Hypothermic Look?

The clothes at the Doo.Ri show last night were mostly gray, accented with a couple blue and peach pieces. The makeup matched, though in a rather unexpected way. Makeup artist Tom Pecheux made the models’ lips blue. Check it out! Keep reading »

The New Domino Magazine?

It’s called Lonny magazine and as of late last night (or early this morning, rather), it’s now got a launch date—October 1st. For those not obsessed with every move ex-Domino staffers make, Lonny is home decor/design mag in the vein of Domino (it’s even got a former Domino editor on its inagural cover, look!) that’s being pulled together by Michelle Adams, the woman behind Rubie Green textiles, and a former Domino assistant herself! It’s set to be online only—PDF versions, perhaps? So get pumped, Domino lovers. Interiors coverage is set to get fun again! OMFG. [MA Belle] Keep reading »

The Inspiration Board: Homage To Mary Travers’ Style

Folk legend Mary Travers of Peter, Paul and Mary may have been a revolutionary artist but she always managed to make fighting the Man look pretty damn good, too. She passed away yesterday after an ongoing battle with leukemia, but her particular brand of laid-back cool lives on. Keep reading »

Natalie Portman Demonstrates How Matchy-Matchy Works

Normally, I am fiercely against anything too matchy-matchy—i.e., exactly color-coordinated belt and bag, or lips and shoes, or headband and belt and bag. It just looks too trying-too-hard and robot-esque. I actually actively try not to match my beauty touches or accessories—and while I’m not a Kate Moss mix master, I do spend some time contemplating it all. Yet, when I spied Natalie Portman‘s color-coordinated nails and lips I actually didn’t hate the combo. Here’s why it works. Keep reading »

Finally, Spam Mail Is Good For Something

How many times a day do you automatically delete emails with subjects like “Get big penis now offer pump for sex only $12.99!” (Or maybe you don’t delete them? We don’t know!) At least there’s one person out there finding a comical use for spam emails that would otherwise be a nuisance—Floyd Hayes, a graphic designer who decided to pimp out the subject lines in sex spam emails on colorful buttons. His line, called SeksiSpam, features pins emblazoned with the hilarious phrases that come to his inbox: “Riding seksi bich”; “Nice graet leegs”; “Working on nipless.” Keep reading »

Dubai Company Creates Cosmetic Line For Muslim Women

There are many reasons why women look for cosmetics without this or that—maybe they’re vegans or maybe they’re very eco-conscious. Another reason? Religion.

For Muslim women, there’s apparently been a gap in the market, due to the lack of non-halal makeup. (Halal refers to the law forbidding, among other things, certain pork and animal products and alcohol.) That said, many Arab women already wear makeup — lots of it. We’re guessing that, perhaps, they’re not all so strict about conforming to Islamic law. Keep reading »

“Shoe Stalking” Isn’t Creepy At All

We’ve got to admit that the gang over at Refinery29 has got us beat these days when it comes to borderline creepy love of footwear. While we’ve just been obsessing about shoes online, they’ve been tracking the best ones down in real life, too. And what better time to stalk hot shoes than during Fashion Week, when the stylish masses congregate in a few different spots around the city? Looking for badass shoes at a Fashion Week party is like spotting a douchebag in a club: easy as hell. Reap the rewards of their stalking here. [Refinery29]

The Perfect Red Lipstick Spotted At Christian Cota!

The hunt for the ultimate red lipstick can be a lifelong endeavor. And if you ask my dear friend and beauty expert Courtney Dunlop, red lipstick is the new smoky eye. Some are too tomato-y, some too blue, orange or worse, pink. But once you’ve found the perfect shade of red that looks great with your skin tone, just like scoring the perfect LBD, you’ve got a go-to glamour maker that you can bust out on days where you can’t be bothered to put any effort into looking put-together. That’s why I was so excited to spot such a fetching shade of brilliant red on the pretty lips of the models at the Christian Cota presentation yesterday. Global Makeup Artist for Maybelline New York, Charlotte Willer spends a lot of time mixing up colors to use for editorial purposes, but yesterday she didn’t have to. All of the girls were treated to a heapin’ helping of Color Sensational Lipcolor in Very Cherry, a color which looks good on all skin types (and the girls there ranged from lily white to deepest ebony black) and they all looked smashing. Also, because of the high pigment color payoff and creamy texture, no liner was required. Um yeah and it also costs under $10.

Also spotted at Christian Cota: celebs Rose Byrne and Amerie; ’50s-inspired cocktail dresses made edgy with chain jewelry; the fattest, smallest chihuahua we’ve ever seen; and seriously even-more-gorgeous-in-person, new Maybelline New York spokesmodel, 18-year-old Emily Didonato (whom we snapped, above). Oh, also, the sickest shoes ever, after the jump! Keep reading »
