Is Whitney Port’s Purple Makeup So Wrong, Or So Wrong It’s Right?

With September on the horizon (dun dun dunnnnn), celebrities are often the first ones to convert their looks from beach-ready basics to the sultrier trappings of fall.

An Incomplete History Of Body Trends, According To “The New York Times”

Last week The New York Times "Style" section reported that legs — “exposed legs, smooth and coltish” — are "tak[ing] their turn" as the body's trendiest part. To the casual reader, it might seem strange that something as universally desirable as shapely legs could be having a moment. On the other hand, what took them so long?

5 Things To Know About The First Night Of The Republican National Convention

Political theater like the Republican and Democratic National Conventions are a big swamp of blerrgghhh to me. My opinion is that it's all just a dog-and-pony show and not really the best way to get to know a candidate, their viewpoints, or their cronies at all. But yes, it's still a big to-do. What happe…

The 4 Most Interesting Moments From TLC’s “Abby & Brittany” Premiere

TLC is like my spirit animal cable channel, so my hopes were lofty for "Abby & Brittany," the new show about 22-year-old identical, conjoined twins Abby and Brittany Hensel.
