You know that scene in “Jaws” where the three guys get drunk below deck and start comparing scars, trying to one up each other, until Quint totally wins with his chilling account of watching all his friends get eaten by sharks during the sinking of the USS Indianapolis? Get a group of women talking about haircut horror stories, and it is usually a very similar scene. The mood gets very serious and competitive. Someone almost always dramatically lifts the hair above her ear to reveal a burn mark, whispering “curling iron, 1987,” and then one person finally unleashes her story of a haircut so epically bad, so emotionally traumatic, that the group can only shake their heads in reverent silence …

Today is a big day, as The Frisky will participate in a photo shoot with Ted Baker London, one of the fastest-growing leading lifestyle brands in the UK. I, along with other fashion bloggers, will take to Twitter to remotely style a photo shoot occurring at the Ted Baker HQ in London. This is the first ever remote-controlled, digital styling project using Twitter, a live video stream, and nothing else. It’s all going down at TakeOnTed.com. But we’re also going to post a video so you can watch it live on The Frisky. You can follow me, @GlamNiki, or @Ted_Baker to see the live styling instructions. And there’s even a chance to win a prize for those that watch the photo shoot at 3:20 p.m.
WIN THIS! We’re giving away one pair of Ted Baker London Faina boots, but you have to work if you want it. After the photo shoot, tell us in the comments which was your favorite look and why by 4:45 p.m. today, Nov. 5, 2010. We’ll pick our favorite response and announce the winner later today. You must live in the U.S. or Canada to win. Good luck!
Update: Found out who won a pair of Ted Baker London Faina boots after the jump. Keep reading »
I’ve had a difficult time keeping my lips moist and smooth, despite using Neosporin Lip Health religiously. I know it’s become colder lately, but I didn’t think that was the only culprit. Then, it occurred to me that my benzoyl peroxide facial cleanser was probably sucking all the moisture out of my lips, leaving them dry and cracked. For the last week or so, I’ve applied a lip moisturizer right after patting my face dry–and it really helps! It protects my skin from my face wash. If you have dry, cracked lips, then try this too.

Surely, there is nothing that says “America” like the Victoria’s Secret fashion show. Every year, a posse of well-known (and some not so much) and drop-dead gorgeous women parade up and down a runway wearing underwear paired with totally strange costumes. It’s like Halloween threw up on Christmas and then someone threw a pair of underpants and a bra at the mess. If you like spectacle, you like this “fashion show.” Or if you like boobs. In any case, Modelina has some preview shots of what wackiness the girls will be flouncing about in this year. To me, this number looks like a pair of crystal harp wings. Which is great. Because I had been shopping for crystal harp wings on eBay, and now I know where I can get them. Thanks, Victoria’s Secret. [Modelina] Keep reading »
OK, so Chloe Moretz is only 13, but that doesn’t mean we can’t worship her style, which is quite mature for her age. Her look of a brown-and-black striped top and thick black shorts would be appropriate for a casual office, dinner with friends, or trip to the theater. So we just had to figure out how to duplicate the look. Get the deets after the jump. Keep reading »
“It’s a different time. We are now going through a period of a lot of Eastern European. It’s more about their look than their personalities. It was the most terrifying thing to do fittings with supermodels, because they would come in and look at your Polaroid board and count how many outfits they had, what order they came out in, and who were they next to. They would say things like, ‘She is taller than me, and I am not coming out after her,’ ‘How come she has three outfits, and I only have two,’ and ‘I want that outfit.’ They’d literally pull the Polaroid off the board and say they want to wear this. There was a reason they were supermodels, though. When they put on an outfit, everyone was floored.”
