Panty Power: How Pretty Underwear Can Boost Body Image

Two weeks ago, I went for a bra fitting. Having been told by dozens of style experts that 137 percent of women wear the wrong bra size, I fully expected to be told that my 34C was FAR too small/big/narrow/high/thick/whatever for my frame. Miraculously, the lingerie shop owner confirmed that I was already wearing the…

Beauty Cues: Get Rachel Weisz’s Look On The Cover Of Marie Claire UK

Rachel Weisz is so beautiful it’s stupid, and I think much of her allure has to do with the fact that she lacks the eerily perfect symmetry of most Hollywood faces — she has a really unique, almost strange look to her that is beyond compelling. After all, Daniel Craig put a ring on it,…

Chris Brown has said something obnoxious about Frank Ocean’…

The 15 Best Nail Art Blogs

One of the best things about being online editors is that we get to spend hours perusing the web for inspiration (even though this may not be best for our eyesight or posture). Nonetheless, there are tons of budding makeup, hair and skincare “experts” sharing their straightforward reviews and in-your-face tutorials. Impressed by their serious skills and online…

Be My Boyfriend: Guy Who Wants A Hawk At His 30th Birthday Party

I saw this Craigslist ad looking for a falconer to bring “an aggressive flying killing machine” to a 30th birthday posted on Facebook. I’m not sure if it’s for a party held by my old colleague who posted it on Facebook, or someone else, but it doesn’t matter: I want this Craigslist author to be…

“I had to fly from London to Los Angeles for dinner and then get right back on a plane to London–that’s 10, 12 hours. I had to sleep on the plane, I had to sleep. So I take a little sleeping pill, pop it, and realize nothing’s happening–but something else was happening… I realize pretty…
