Quick Pic: Everything Butt The Truth

This would seem to be the product of a 13-year-old boy experimenting with origami. Or just someone who realized that the web would go crazy over a piece of paper that’s cut to look like a lady’s butt. Either way, rad. [LikeCool.com] Keep reading »

Check This Out: We Are Photogirls

After school was never this cool for us: We Are Photogirls, a London-based creative institute for teenage girls, shows youngsters everything they’d ever want to know about fashion photography, from styling and makeup to technical details and art direction. Students end up learning life skills through workshops, shooting a “Mutual-Respect Calendar” between teen boys and girls, and a “Fashion Shoot Battle” between youth groups. The results are stunning and professional—nothing we ever snapped with our Kodak disposables. And while the fashion world can be a treacherous place for self-respect, Photogirls aims to project a wholesome image: According to their site, “At We Are Photogirls we strongly believe that being beautiful is not about being a 6ft tall, size-zero model; rather that everyone has a unique style and beauty that should be encouraged and celebrated!” That’s cool.

An Interview With Jewelry Designer Shaun Leane

My favorite jewelry designer — well, except for Tiffany, of course — is Shaun Leane, the man behind some of the most outrageous jewelry and accessories that you may have seen being worn on the runway by Alexander McQueen models. On the W blog, there’s a new fast and dirty interview with the British jewelry designer in which he talks about making the silver armor hand piece that you see here for fashion icon Daphne Guinness, how long it takes to make a coiled metal corset that a runway model can actually wear, and why his favorite McQueen show involved paint-spraying robots. My favorite Leane piece is this diamonds-and-thorns-encrusted black heart locket. It has a little window in the back that lets you put a tiny keepsake inside it. Now if only I had £7,800.00.

Gift For The Best BF Ever: Kanye West’s Louis Vuitton Sneaks

Hot on the heels of his sneaker design collaboration with Nike, Kanye West has debuted another one with Louis Vuitton. The collection, simply called, er, Kanye West for Louis Vuitton, features five distinct sneakers which range in colors from solid red to pastel shades. West mixed the usual suspects when it comes to sneaker materials like leather uppers and cotton laces with felt trimming. And while they might look like your standard sneaker, the signature Louis Vuitton logo on the soles and tongues let you know that these are luxury kicks. So does the price! The shoes, available at Louis Vuitton stores, cost between $840 and $1140 depending on the style. If your guy, really, really, really wanted these, would you buy them for him? It’s a recession, so I’m thinking I’d download the picture and frame it nicely for him instead. Keep reading »

Tim Gunn Dishes On The New “Project Runway” Designers

We were extremely bummed to learn “Project Runway” was “moving to Lifetime from Bravo. Our depression grew when we realized Bravo’s “The Fashion Show” is no “Runway” substitute — Kelly Rowland and Isaac Mizrahi have nothing on Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn! Well, season six of “Runway” is set to premiere on Aug. 20, and we’ll be watching, despite the network move. Tim spoke to People.com about his take on the new designers, piquing our interest in the show once again. Keep reading »

Crave: Dermalogica Clean Start Skincare Products

Getting skin, “clean, clear, and under control” can be more than a little complicated. To simplify the process, one of our fave skin care brands, Dermalogica, has launched a line called Clean Start. The eight product range is appropriate for all skin types, but targeted specifically at teens to rid skin of blackheads, pimples, and other impurities. The line doesn’t rely on peppy commercials or packaging to get it’s point across, just quality ingredients and attention to detail — like a backwards spraying skin toner which can be spritzed on your face or your back. Best of all, the products contain no artificial colors, fragrances, or allergens. You can buy the cleansing gels, toners, and moisturizers separately. [$16 - $36, Clean Start] Keep reading »

Spend The Day Chillaxing On An Artsy Beach Blanket

Here at The Frisky, we’ve talked wearable towels, Gucci towels and recession-defying $500 towels, but here’s another sort of absorbent fabric type to add to the list: Artware Editions has just introduced their 2009 Artist Towel Series. It features three-ply designs from some pretty big-deal artists like Ed Ruscha, Karen Kilimnick, Raymond Pettibon and Julian Schnabel. (Last year the round-up included Jeff Koons (check it, above) and Elizabeth Peyton.) You should also know that these are massive towels. Seriously, you could throw one of these bad boys down on the sand and fit at least two healthy-sized adults on there. And while drying off doesn’t come cheap (they run $95 each), I guess they’re a bit more accessible than say, buying a Koons sculpture at auction prices. [Artware Editions] Keep reading »

DIY: The Best Chanel Purse Knockoff Ever

Certain areas of NYC, like Canal Street and any street corner where a sheet can be unfurled and then snatched up quickly , are dedicated to selling knockoff designer wares. But there’s an even cheaper way to get a “designer” purse — all you need is a steady hand, a brown paper bag, a Sharpee, and a thin link chain. That’s how the above Chanel-inspired handbag was created. What makes this tongue-in-cheek knockoff even better is that the Double Cs logo isn’t perfect — so there, Karl Lagerfeld! Now if only someone would tell me how to create a DIY Hermes Birkin and my accessories closet could be complete. [Jak & Jil via Fashion Copious] Keep reading »

Chloe Sevigny, Stylish Even Whilst Skateboarding

Chloe Sevigny (alongside various NYC hipsters) stars and skates in the video for “Any Fun” by Jason Schwartzman’s musical outlet, Coconut Records. You might remember that Chloe used to hang out in New York City’s Washington Square Park with skater kids after lying to her parents about her whereabouts. Well, apparently she learned a few tricks when she was skipping school. Chloe’s no stranger to music videos, either, having starred in Sonic Youth’s “Sugar Kane” video in the ’90s. Since she’s such a trendsetter, maybe we’ll all start wearing Mexican Baja hoodies in a few months. Or not. We still haven’t gotten on her whole socks with sandals bandwagon. Keep reading »

Are You Down With Cosabella’s New Girdle-Thong?

Cosabella, maker of lacy thongs and responsible party for that rampant butt-cleavage trend that helps show them off, has come out with a new type of butt-floss that is decidedly less sexy: The “smooth thong” features a tummy-tucking girdle that comes up to your bellybutton. The first “novelty shapewear thong,” the garment aims to eliminate panty lines and stomach bulges while wearing body-skimming clothes. Apparently, Cosabella is marketing the product to college women as a solution to the Freshman 15. Yeah, we know. Keep reading »
