Artist Carves Faces Out Of Fashion Magazines

We here at Der Frisky are loving these amazing carved fashion magazine artworks by Nate Page. We’re not entirely sure how he reconstructs these deconstructed glossy pages, but it involves “drawing and assemblage,” and the results are beautiful and haunting. Here, he appears to have carved the face out of Naomi Watts on the cover of Vogue Australia to creepy cool effect, leaving nothing but the eyes staring out. I used to keep all my magazines, until they stood in towering stacks. It’s lovely to see someone make art out of what we stare at that stares back at us.

Chris Sauve Does It Again

How is it that graphic tee shirts elevate mundane sayings into major fashion moments? Case in point: this shirt. It’s the brainchild of New York City-based designer and art director Christopher Sauve and features a sketch of Jesus (notice the Vogue collar he is rocking), plus the popular saying “God Don’t Like Ugly.” Sauve has already developed a bit of a cult following for his other tees which feature fashion-forward slogans such as “Save Anna [Wintour]” and “I Die. Bananas,” an homage to one of Rachel Zoe’s favorite sayings. These quirky tees will set you back $35 a pop. Log on to Sauve’s site to find out how to buy. [The Cut] Keep reading »

Beer In Your Beauty Routine?

Mmm … beer, the delicious soda that makes you feel good. And, apparently, makes you look good, and we’re not talking about beer goggles. Recently, beauty blog BellaSugar reminded us that the beverage has some great beauty benefits. Because of its astringent qualities, beer can help remove hair product buildup when used as a pre-shampoo treatment. You can also make a homemade facial with it, adding avocado, vinegar, and honey. As a last suggestion, you can pour it into your bubble bath … which doesn’t seem to have much benefit other than it feels good (apparently). [BellaSugar]

We’ve also come across some other uses for ale—there are countless recipes out there for beer shampoos and conditioners (you can mix it with jojoba oil, for example), and you can also use it as a styling spray. The question is, would you really want to? Keep reading »

Would You Let Your Kid Wear … Pasties?

Twisted Twee is offering this decidedly provocative shirt for the kids. Yes, that is a shirt for a child. And it has a set of sequin, tasseled pasties on it. Of the sort, say, a stripper, or, you know, a burlesque dancer would wear, and not, uh, a child. Also? It’s described as “Something for the Evening.” Weird. Perhaps this is some British sense of humor thing that I am missing? (The company is based in the UK.) Here are some other tops that are funny if you think coupling the letters of the alphabet with things that could fatally harm a child is amusing. Although, I do like these “Obama” kids’ underpants. What do you think of this ostensibly for kids fashion line? [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

Do Your Hair for Under $20

Bargain shopping for makeup is easy, but it can be a challenge to spend under $20 on traditionally spendy hair products. We tried and tress-ted (ha, sorry) a few little numbers and found a few that make the grade — whether you’re going for high volume or stick straight — but won’t make your wallet cry. Keep reading »

Show Your Eco-Support: “Green” Underthings

As of today, there’s no excuse for wearing those holey, chewed-up underoos we all own. Not only are they not cute, they are slowly and silently killing the planet. (Well, kinda.) Pact, a brand new line of eco-friendly underthings by famed industrial designer Yves Behar, is upping the, er, (p)ante on Victoria and her secrets. Not only do 10 percent of Pact’s sales support three different nonprofits—826 National, ForestEthics and Oceana—but the company has taken major pains to ensure that the process of producing their underwear is a green one. All of the designs are made in Turkey — 100 miles from where the cotton is grown and cultivated — which eliminates unnecessary shipping waste. To lessen the environmental impact even more, Behar et al use reusable cloth packaging and compost-able shipping bags. For the ladyfolk out there, the underwear comes in thong, bikini and boyshort styles—and you can opt for or against patterns. [Pact]

Designer Shopping Bags As Totes: The Ultimate In Label Whoring?

After a few weeks of lusting over it, I’ve finally decided to acknowledge that this Valentino bag will not be mine. Even though my computer would look so cute in there and I’m a relatively nice person. Grr. But even during my points of deepest obsession, a Valentino shopping bag never seemed like a reasonable substitute. I get the idea behind carrying designer shopping bags: looking like you can shop at stores that would really eat an entire month’s paycheck in one go. But I don’t get the allure.

The New York Times just wrote about this designer shopping bag “trend” sweeping Japan and focused mostly on the adorable aspects. Like a teenage girl who says carrying a bag from a popular designer store reminds her of the fun times she has shopping. On the other hand, could it also be the ultimate form of label whoring, more intense in its desperation level than carrying fakes? Keep reading »

Quick Pic: Beyonce Rocks (?) Curly Bangs

We noticed our good friend Courtney Dunlop over at the Stylelist blog posted this rather disturbing pic of Beyonce out on the town wearing one of the most questionable hairdos of all time, the curly bang. (Although maybe she just needs to read our post about how not to look a hot mess?) It seems like even a star of her caliber is having trubs pulling this look off, leading us to pose the question: Can curangs ever look good? [Stylelist] Keep reading »

Crave: Incase Uniform Experiment Laptop Sleeve

It’s hard to find a laptop case that isn’t overly girly or completely utilitarian. Looks like Incase has come up with a creative solution. Collaborating with Japanese street wear website, Honeyee, the company created this sleeve made of a faux leather material that’s printed with a cool safety-pin design. On the inside there’s fake fur to keep your lappy safe from nicks and scratches. If you want one, better hop to it because it’s a very limited edition.
