Quotable: Calvin Klein’s Francisco Costa Says Waifs Are So Over

“Calvin Klein originally started the whole waif moment and not much has been done since then … Lara was our exclusive four years ago. We’ve never had someone who really represented our houses and all our licensees in the same way. She is very current, very beautiful and very womanly. It’s time for that persona and for that body. She’s divine, gorgeous and we will support her in that.”

– Calvin Klein’s Francisco Costa on model Lara Stone’s more curvy figure and its place in high fashion. It’s good to see that even Calvin Klein, the brand that hired a nearly-naked, teenage Kate Moss to usher in the era of the waif, is broadening its approach in terms of weight. Lara Stone’s “curvy” physique is still totally slim, but she’s at least got the sort of body type that every day women are more likely to relate to — you know, not emaciated.

I Lost 10 Pounds By — Well, I’m Not Entirely Sure

Every so often, I’ve written a post here and there on The Frisky about wanting to lose weight. Most recently, I wrote about how I have a big butt, and while I may not have found a solution to bring about world peace, I did find skinny jeans that fit. The only reason that I was able to get my lower lady lump into those jeans at all is because I lost about 10 pounds over the last, oh, two months, I’d say. So, how did I do it? Well, I’m not entirely sure. Keep reading »

Forget Plain Matte Nails, Texture’s Where It’s At

I had a hard time comprehending matte nails when the trend took off last year. I mean, isn’t the point of a manicure to make your nails shine? Then add the confusion over top coat to the mix — do you forgo a top coat completely or do you search for a matte one too? And choosing to go matte is more difficult than picking a nail color. All that being said, I’m considering taking the matte plunge with a polish from Orly’s Plastix Collection. These polishes mimic the texture of plastic, vinyl, and pleather in a matte finish with fun bright colors so you needn’t fear any references to domination fetishes. The collection launches later this month on OrlyBeauty.com, where polishes normally retail for about $7.50. [Nylon] Keep reading »

Won’t You Take Me To … Noble Town Vintage

When you find an awesome, affordable Etsy seller, you often feel like you’ve just won the jackpot, which is exactly the case with Noble Town Vintage’s jewelry. Re-purposed and revived, the designs are anything but overdone. Think chevron charms dangling on long necklaces, earrings with dainty brass cubes hanging from chains, art deco plaques, or chunky amethyst stones paired with worn-in chain. Our favorite: the vintage brass bar necklace, which features a horizontal bar between two strands with a choice of quirky pendants.

Barbie Video Girl + Scavenger Hunt = Adult Summer Play

Barbie Video Girl is the latest addition to the Barbie family, but she’s not some doll that fancies herself a music video model, camera person, or video editor. No, this doll is much cooler than that. Barbie Video Girl is actually a video camera that can record your summer adventures. There’s a tiny camera lens in her necklace and a monitor in her back. And she’s compatible with both Mac and PC. What’s even more exciting is the adult scavenger hunt to kick off the launch of Barbie Video Girl. You can win fun prizes, free swag, and maybe a Barbie Video Girl doll of your own. The doll has already landed in San Francisco, and throughout the day Barbie Video Girl will post clues to her whereabouts via Twitter (@BarbieStyle) and Foursquare (@BarbieStyle). You only have one day to find her, but Barbie Video Girl is also going to hit up a few fun and fashionable spots in L.A. tomorrow, Chicago on Thursday, and NYC on Friday. Read the official rules for the scavenger hunt here. And good luck! [$49.99, Mattel] Keep reading »

Quotable: Marc Jacobs Takes A Brain Vacation With The “Jersey Shore”

“Recently I watched every episode of ‘Jersey Shore”s first season. I don’t know if it was any good and I certainly didn’t learn anything, but it was definitely hypnotic and it gave my brain a vacation.”

Marc Jacobs on his “appreciation” for a certain reality TV show. Let’s hope this means we’ll never see one of the cast members fist-pumping in the front row at his show. [New York] Keep reading »
