The triumvirate of teen queen movies: Pretty In Pink, Mean Girls, and Clueless — are all getting remade into Broadway musicals. Sike! Although we’re sure some of the score will be watered down into electronic bleeps, they’re actually turning the dramas into full on games. Paramount Pictures, who owns all the movies, is creating digital downloads and low-cost “casual” ones for consoles like Wii, Playstation, and eventually Nintendo DS. Finally girl gamers will have some video games all to ourselves, without our boyfriends trying to swoop in and beat our high score! Read on for more details… Keep reading »
When he wakes up next to you tomorrow morning, you don’t want his first reaction to be “Damn! Who the hell let Alice Cooper into my bedroom?”. To emerge looking fresh as a daisy (even if you feel anything but) the morning after, pack your purse with these touch-up essentials. In no time flat, you’ll transform yourself from strung-out Kate Moss to her glowier, dewier alter-ego.
1. Sephora’s Pretty Minty
Banish dragon breath with these teeny tiny yet totally powerful (and sugar-free) breath fresheners. They’re housed in a cute little tin whose lid conceals a mirror, preventing you from having to go all MacGyver in order to get a peek at your much-improved reflection. [$2, Sephora] Keep reading »
While perusing JCrew.com this morning, searching for something amazing and preferably on sale, I happened to click on the jewelry section. Scrolling through it, I saw beaded necklaces, pearl earrings, and then, what’s this, two Rolex watches? Now, the product details are lacking — instead of a product name and description, it says, “Product Short Desc — Please update at the product level,” but unless someone at the company is playing a joke by putting up photos of gold Rolexes with price tags of $4,500 and $5,200, J. Crew has gotten into the luxury timepiece game. Now, will someone give me a J. Crew gift card for $5,000? With it, I could either buy the watch to the left, or 900 pairs of these pearl earrings, which just don’t quite compare. Keep reading for a screenshot of the Rolex on JCrew.com… Keep reading »

On last night’s episode of Project Runway (I’m sorry if you missed it because I told you it was on at 10pm, rather than 9pm — here’s the recap), the contestants had to create cocktail dresses out of eco-friendly fabrics selected by their models. For some reason, the silk/hemp blend that was popular with many of the models seems to come in just two colors, an ugly bronze and a slightly cheap-looking pale good. Apparently, it was very difficult to manipulate — I have never seen hemlines so crooked. Guest judge Natalie Portman was as ladylike as ever, always saying something good about the design before giving her criticisms, and in the end, Suede’s innovative criss-crossing of fabrics won her over. Heidi Klum even said she’s wear the dress if she were 10 years younger. Heidi, you don’t need to shave off 10 years to wear this dress.

Because your lashes are jealous that they never got their own vibrator, this winter Lancôme will introduce Ôscillation, a new mascara that provides a 360-degree coat of product around each and every lash, courtesy of a vibrating brush that pulsates 7,000 times per minute (if only your boyfriend was that skilled….). Sounds kinda scary, we know, but you’ll get used to it – especially after you check out the porn star lashes it delivers. At $34, it’s a relatively inexpensive way to pump yourself – er, I mean your lashes…yeah, your lashes! – up. [$34, Lancome-USA.com]

Christian Siriano, last season’s “fierce” winner of Project Runway, is everywhere these days. He’s designed prom dresses for avatars and small collections for Puma, and he’s gearing up to show at New York Fashion week come September. Yesterday, his nine-piece collection for Bluefly, which was part of the PR prize package, went up on the site. For some reason, you can’t buy any of his clothes yet — either that, or they sold out in a day. (They all have a note that says “We’re sorry, this item is not available” next to them.) But as much as I love Christian and all of his hot tranny mess-iness, I don’t think I’d spend almost $400 on this jacket. More photos after the jump… [NY Times, Bluefly] Keep reading »
As if I haven’t said it enough, I heart Mad Men and am on the edge of my seat for this Sunday’s season two premiere. I especially love foxy redheaded Queen Bee of the secretaries, Joan Holloway. Her approach to getting ahead at work may not be ours (but then again, we don’t have to contend with 1960′s sexism!), but her style is hot. Embracing her womanly curves, the character always looks chic and well put together, and getting the look yourself, while staying modern, is actually pretty easy. Check out three options we put together, based on Joan’s fashion from last season, after the jump. Keep reading »
Now and Then is one of those classic girls-coming-of-age movies. Most of the action takes place in the 1970s, so actresses Christina Ricci, Thora Birch, Gaby Hoffmann, and Ashleigh Aston Moore got to wear some pretty sweet clothes. (I hope I’m not the only one to think cut-off jean shorts, plaid shirts, and the most basic sneakers ever are awesome.) Exchange your usual flip-flops for canvas sneaks, and channel your favorite of the four girls — I’m a Samantha (Gaby Hoffmann). Keep reading »
