It’s Time To Cry: Homeless Family Gets A Makeover

If you’re having trouble getting in the Thanksgiving spirit, this video will get you there quickly. Kyle Oreffice and Josh Gibson, arbiters of random acts of kindness, took their giving to another echelon when they heard about a down-on-their luck Utah family living in a homeless shelter. Kyle and Josh gave parents Reggie and Do…

5 Suggested Story Lines For The New Anne Of Green Gables

So, by now you’ve probably seen the travesty that is this updated Anne of Green Gables cover (that’s it above, no joke). Apparently Anne as an awkward, freckled redhead is out; Anne as a hot, blonde, busty bombshell with bedroom eyes is in. If you’ve read the books, you know this ridiculous makeover actually renders most…

10 Teen Movie Makeovers And What We Learned From Them

In honor of New Year, New You month at The Frisky, I’ve taken an in-depth look at one of the biggest teen movie cliches: the “makeover scene” (second only to the “prom scene”). You’ve seen it a thousand times — the heroine descends a staircase in slow-motion and we cut to the montage of her…

Kristen Stewart, All Dolled Up

Well what do we have here? It appears that Ms. Tomboy herself, Kristen Stewart, has been spackled and lashed into girly submission. Here she is on the cover of the September issue of W magazine looking positively femme fatale. Who knew? [W Magazine]…

My “What Not To Wear” Makeover

Yes, it’s true: I got a makeover on TLC’s “What Not to Wear.”

First off, let’s get to the immediate questions. Yes, the show’s hosts Stacy London and Clinton Kelly are as warm, friendly and sweet off camera as they are on. Yes, you really do get $5,000 to spend on clothes and…

Snooki Makes Over A Tween In Her Likeness

I should probably find this video of Snooki giving an 11-year-old a makeover in her likeness — heavily applied bronzer, poof, and all — really offensive. She’s a kid! She doesn’t need to look like a Jersey guidette with alcohol running through her veins! But I don’t know, I found this makeover kind of…

Channeling My Inner Joan Holloway

Last week, I got an email from an editor at The New York Post asking if I might be interested in modeling some “Mad Men”-inspired looks for a story she was working on. Janie Bryant, the costume designer for “Mad Men,” is launching her new clothing line and the editor at the Post had read…

“You’re Wearing That?” — The New Solution To Improving Mother/Daughter Relationships

Mothers and daughters tend to share many things. Facial features. Mannerisms. Bad style? Yes, that too. But WeTV is trying to change that with a new makeover show. “You’re Wearing That?” features mothers and daughters who make over each other for a special event. These women get help from personal stylist and host…

Jessica Simpson’s “Price Of Beauty” Could Now Be A Makeover Show

Breaking news: something disappointing is getting even more disappointing. We’ve always been unimpressed with Jessica Simpson‘s show, “The Price of Beauty,” in which she and her best friends, Ken Paves and Cacee Cobb, travel around the world to discover what “beauty” means in other cultures.

But scratch that idea. Now it could become…

Two Girls Get A Casual-To-Glam Makeover

Shopping Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles, California, Shannon and Devon looked out of place dressed in jeans, T-shirts and worn-in hoodies. And according to our Mission Makeover team, perusing such a chic street requires a little more style and sophistication.

The plan of action: take the twosome from so-so to stylish. See the results

Quotable: Kelly Cutrone Got Drunk And Had Sex WIth Heather Locklear

“My whole thing is I’m busy, I’m a single mom, I’m working. I’m not an actress. The truth of the matter is, you know, with the exception of my mother, most people who know me know I don’t look great in makeup. When I was younger I was into it. You know, people have strong…

Starbucks Gets A Fancy Makeover

The yuppification of the yuppified has begun! It seems it wasn’t enough for Starbucks to infiltrate every neighborhood in America in the ’90s with its mass market gentrified style, but now they’re revamping that. In an attempt to make the brand feel more “local,” the company has been conducting makeovers on a few branches to…

How Dare They Mess With Greatness?!

Hey, Life & Style? While I am usually a fan of makeunders, I really liked the “Jersey Shore” cast exactly as they were. Why did you have to “class” them up with those fancy dresses and stupid man vests? How could you deflate Snooki’s pouf? That’s just … wrong. [Just Jared]…

Kim Kardashian Made Over To Look Like One Of Us

Here’s a trend I’d like to see die — sending oh-so-drop-dead-gorgeous celebrities “undercover” as one of the commoners by giving them layers of chub and ugly makeup. Tyra did it first, getting made-under to look like a “fat” woman so she could see what it was like to be one (coincidentally, that episode re-aired today).

Mickey Mouse Got A Makeover. But What About Minnie?

You know how our grandparents grew up yelling “Hello, Mickey” back at the TV during cartoon hour? Well, today’s kids seem to view the helium-voiced mascot as more of a logo, or maybe a hat design, than as a lovable character. I guess that didn’t sit well with the higher-ups at Disney, who want their…

Tinker Bell Gets Non-Slutty Makeover

Yesterday, many of you expressed shock and outrage at Hallmark’s tragic sexification (is that a word? probably not) of one of Gen Y’s most beloved children’s characters, the once-indefatigable Rainbow Brite. And R.B. wasn’t the first to get the Bratz treatment — lots of other mini-icons have been put through the ringer to please a…

Caster Semenya Gets A Girly Makeover To Help “Prove” She’s A Woman

Caster Semenya, the runner who was forced to undergo sex-determination testing, appears on the cover of South African magazine You, with her hair down and her makeup done (including dark burgundy nail polish) and wearing a wardrobe that includes a silver sequined top with black leggings and a black dress accessorized with a necklace and…

Give Yourself An Inside Out Self-Love Makeover

I often find myself writing about self-love, simply because I know that that is the key to accomplishing absolutely anything we want in life. Self-love breeds confidence, and once we’re confident, the sky’s the limit! I think that we tend to overcomplicate things, or get “stuck in the muck” of what happened in the past.
