Tyra Is Type F; Kate Middleton, Beauty Icon; And More…


Remember last summer when Tyra Banks was threatening to create a Web site to “provide [her] audience with inspirational and instructional content to help them look and feel their best”? Well, she wasn’t bluffing. TypeF launched today, with a whole “Beauty School” section replete with quizzes to help you find the right red lipstick, apply a smoky eye, and “detangle your mane.” It’s pretty smart, actually—which should come as no surprise from a newly enrolled Harvard University Business School student.

File this under no f-ing way. Al-Fajr, a jihadist media distribution outlet, has just debuted a new women’s magazine for female terrorists called Al-Shamikha, which contains all the usual fashion mag tidbits—including beauty tips—albeit with a slightly more, er, hostile tone. [Wired]

That blue Issa wrap dress is sold out across the globe, and now Kate Middleton’s perfect blow-out is inspiring imitators at her go-to London salon, where customers are asking for the “Kate.” Suffice it to say, there will be a mad rush on knockoffs of whatever wedding dress she chooses for the big day (we hope it’s McQueen!). [People]

Speaking of the soon-to-be princess, Middleton is inspiring nail trends, too. One fanatical royal-watcher had the Mario Testino-lensed portrait of Wills and Kate transposed onto nail overlays. Creepy—but also maybe a little awesome? [BellaSugar Australia]
