The Inspiration Board: Emily Valentine Of “Beverly Hills, 90210″

Everyone took notice as soon as Emily Valentine, played by Christine Elise, showed up in the ’90s’ hottest zip code. She had that short haircut that didn’t require color touch-ups and a too-cool-for-Beverly-Hills-B.S. attitude that was the perfect balance to Brandon Walsh’s goody-two-shoes act. So what if she slipped Brandon some u4ea/euphoria? He needed to loosen up anyway. Her style was a welcomed departure from the babydoll dresses and floppy hats the other “90210″ girls rocked. And since grunge is back in a major way right now, we’re happy to take a few fashion cues from Emily. Keep reading »

The Inspiration Board: Happy Birthday, Elvis!

Today would have been Elvis Presley‘s 75th birthday if he had lived. Fans are celebrating the day with museum exhibits, concerts, movie marathons, and even the Cirque du Soleil tribute “Viva ELVIS.” But The Frisky hasn’t forgotten that Elvis is known as much for his style as he is for his music, so we’re going to dress like The King for at least one day, and you can too. Find out how after the jump. Keep reading »

Inspiration Board: The Guidettes Of “Jersey Shore”

I woke up this morning, looked in the mirror and couldn’t help but dispiritedly think: “If only I could throw a really dark fake tan, some rhinestones and a pouf on this situation. Maybe then I would be happy …” OK, not really. But I did come across yet another picture of Snooki and finally realized and even appreciated the effort that goes into looking like that all the time. And when it comes to such dedication, attention must be paid. How it has taken us this long is unclear, but what matters most is that you now will finally have a definitive guide to looking hideous all the time “Jersey Shore” style. Keep reading »

Inspiration Board: Off-Duty Models

Due, in most part, to the fact that it’s their job to be surrounded by all things fashionable, most models end up with a badass sense of style and innate ability to, well, look good always. While some do rock the boat a bit with their day-to-day looks– think Iekeliene Stange and Agyness Deyn– we have noticed a model “uniform” of sorts that most of those well-dressed, lovely ladies are working. Here’s how to master it.

The Halloween Inspiration Board: Jareth The Goblin King

I probably watched Jim Henson’s “Labyrinth”–starring a young Jennifer Connelly opposite the rawtha formidable one-and-only David Bowie, who played Jareth, the intimidating Goblin King–approximately 100 times when I was a kid and that’s no exaggeration. You better believe Bowie brought his signature sexy androgyny to the table and let’s just say it made a very young lady feel kinda funny inside. Is it weird to dress up as your childhood crush? Nah, but maybe it is a little kinky… Keep reading »

The Halloween Inspiration Board: Sherlock Holmes

Halloween is the perfect time for a little gender-bending. And Sherlock Holmes is one of the best fictional detectives making a resurgence this year with a new movie, so why not combine the two for your costume? All you need are a few classic menswear pieces that can be pilfered from your dad’s closet, thrifted, or purchased (details after the jump). Keep reading »

The Halloween Inspiration Board: Blair Waldorf

Sure, Serena van der Woodsen is supposed to be the talk of the town, but we’re more interested in Blair Waldorf’s prep-school style. This costume has all the naughty school girl appeal with a touch of Upper East Side class. An added bonus? Each piece is really cute and completely re-wearable! Get the deets, after the jump. Keep reading »

The Halloween Inspiration Board: Lady Gaga

It’s no wonder Lady Gaga has reportedly gone bankrupt four times because quite a bit goes into her extravagant everyday looks. Homegirl loves her crazier-the-better accessories! After the jump we’ve got the deets for how to get the perfect Lady Gaga costume with things possibly in your closet already and items you could totally wear again (either with more clothing or while role-playing).

The Halloween Inspiration Board: Kate Gosselin

Kate Gosselin is so hot right now; you may already have her fabu hairdo. Or you might have a raccoon that digs through your trash that inspired you to be her for Halloween. Whether you worship the cable TV mother of the year or just have a lot of spare kids to dress up in costumes, here’s how you can recreate her reality-show chic on the cheap. Now that Kate’s back on the market and it’s Halloween, what better time to slut it up like a reality television fame whore?! Keep reading »

The Halloween Inspiration Board: Carrie Prejean

Oh Carrie Prejean, we’ve had so much fun getting to know the former Miss California and her distaste for gay marriage in the last year. She’s become one of the most recognizable beauty queens that we’ve ever had the pleasure to see actin’ a fool on national TV! In fact, she makes the perfect Halloween costume, especially if you live in a warm part of the country and can feasibly wear a bathing suit at the end of October. (If not, a tacky white evening dress is a good substitute.) Keep reading »
