Perky Boobs Are On The Rise With—Ouch!—Nipple Surgery

Who’s your nipple role model?

Have no idea what we’re talking about? Good. You haven’t been brainwashed by yet another plastic surgery trend we don’t understand: nipple surgery to change the shape, color or size of your areolae. Keep reading »

What Does Fashion Taste Like? Vodka, According To NYC Bar Local 138

Fad drugs may come and go, but drinking will always stay in style. Which is perhaps why NYC bar Local 138 asked fashion designers to concoct cocktails for its summer drink menu. Marc Jacobs created an updated mint julep which he called the Marc Mint Martini, while Ralph Lauren made a rum punch with fresh crushed raspberries and lime juice. Tory Burch’s bevvie, the Tikki Tini, is the loudest with blends of tropical fruits like mango and pineapple. If you’re in New York this summer, give them a taste at this bar in the Lower East Side, where you just might overdose on hipness if not from your drink. [NY Daily News] Keep reading »

Quick Pic: Thomas Voorn Bathing Suit (…We Think?)

Thomas Voorn likes to think of fashion as a conceptual tool to create art and images, and as part of it he’s photographed a dude in a floral print…Speedo? Banana hammock? It’s a sort of mix of the two that we’ve never seen before. Either way, it’s an I’m-very-comfortable-with-my-sexuality swimsuit. We’re okay with that. [Thomas Voorn] Keep reading »

Have Bad Skin? Brush Your Stomach

When I went for a facial at Ildi Pekar last week, my aesthetician took one look at my skin and said, “You have stomach problems, don’t you?” Astounded, I was unsure as to whether this spa was just really thorough and had been spying on me for a week prior, or if she was psychic. “Oh, you know, kind of…” I replied, a bit too embarrassed to go into detail about WW III that goes on in my stomach on a daily basis (for the past ten years). She continued to tell me that people who suffer from constipation and improper digestion tend to display acne due to a lack of hydrochloric acid, which stalls the destruction of bacteria. I expected her to then tell me what doctors have been pushing on me for ages—eat whole grains, drink water, fiber, fiber, blah, blah. But then she explained that what I should be doing is brushing my stomach. Excuse me? Suggesting a body brush, which women often use to try to get rid of cellulite, you’re supposed to stroke the paddle in a large counterclockwise circle, about 12 times, once a day, to aid digestion. Weird? Yes. But if it’s a peace offering that may end WW III, I’m willing to give it a try. [$6, Nens Natural Body Brush, Bebeautiful.com] Keep reading »

Bad Dad Style: No More Golf Hats, Please

Every now and again, you see an older man dressed impeccably and wonder where the hell he came from and if he’s even from the same species as your own dad. Because sometimes your dad looks good, but more often than not, he’s woefully misguided in sweater vests, sock/sandal combos and those hideously unattractive pleated from khakis that dads everywhere seem to love so much.

My mom’s a pretty classy lady, so she’s beaten a vague sense of style into my dad over the twenty two years they’ve been married. But even though he’s lived two decades under the watchful eye of clothing nazi, every other time I turn around he’s wearing all sorts of fleece and even the occasional Teva sandal. Enough is enough. There are certain things that we as daughters just shouldn’t have to put up with. Keep reading »

Haute Germs: Are Handbags Making Us Sick?

With all the recent swine flu hoopla, even the most hygienically-lax of us have begun giving second thoughts to our cleanliness—soaping up for at least fifteen seconds, coughing into our elbows, and using antibacterial gel every time we enter a new room. There are endless opportunities to sterilize and re-sterilize, and it seems that we intend to use all of them as often as humanly possible. We’re nothing if not clean at this point, right? Well, true for our hands, but what about one of those other appendages women use just as much—our purse? Keep reading »

Optimize Your Daily Dose Of Snail Secretion

Snail secretion…ew. If we at The Frisky did not feel a great responsibility to report every beauty secret we discover/investigate/stumble across, we would have left the snail dribble alone and kept down our lunches. Yet, sadly for my stomach, we take our beauty products seriously. I was prepared to laugh off snail secretion face creams as the cream of the bizarre beauty crop, but those pesky peeps at The International Society of Skin Pharmacology Journal wouldn’t let me. Oh yes, those evil scientists cackled evilly as they discovered the regenerative qualities of the snail slime and its beneficial facial effects. The gist of our slimy friend’s beauty success lies in the secretions ability to block out harmful environmental pollution. We might have speed, but we do not have slime that protects us from UV radiation. Luckily for humans (and not so luckily for snails), snail secretion not only protects human skin but has rejuvenating properties as well! To be honest, the article lost me when it started getting into snail immunology, but until my own mental powers failed me, the science sounded plausible enough. No one is claiming snail secretion will permanently solve all your epidermis worries, but if a snail secretion based cream is used daily, you should see improvements faster than at a snails pace. None of the products are drastically different, but because we are The Frisky, we found you the best of every category. Keep reading »

The “Slim Mouth Piece”: Beauty Product Or Choking Hazard?

Everyone wants a tighter something this day. Someone at some point decided that our butts and thighs need to have more elasticity than a gumby doll. While this obsession with tightness has added two, ahem 20, minutes to my daily beauty routine, it’s definitely worth it during bathing season. What’s not worth it: the Slim Mouth Piece designed to create a taut face but more likely to cause your premature death by choking. Maybe I am just too literal and it’s my problem that I can’t get my mom’s voice saying “don’t put that in your mouth, you will choke!” out of my head. If it’s just my own childhood and authority issues rearing their ugly heads, then who am I to stop you from trying the Slim Mouth Piece…Don’t do it! Keep reading »

Ever Wonder What Editors Fashion Show Notes Look Like?

Editor Glenn O’Brien (once of Interview magazine, Rolling Stone, High Times and now a blogger on men.style.com, among other endeavors) let’s us in on his mostly nonsensical, sometimes hilarious notes (he actually uses the word “ass plate” in descriptive terms) from the last ready-to-wear shows in Milan and Paris. The scribbles were mostly made in the dark, so he claims they “read like code and are skewed at an odd angle in a weird hand reminiscent of the webs researchers recorded after giving spiders LSD. I swear it was just the darkness, and maybe a little Champagne.” Readable or not, I always wonder what those front-row editors are scrawling in their chic, little books—so get a load Glenn’s wack-job thoughts on collections from Hussein Chalayan, Fendi, Max Mara, Roberto Cavalli, Givenchy, etc. [Style Guy Blog] Keep reading »
