“There’s one disturbing notion throughout India that light skin is more attractive than dark … When you doubt one thing about yourself, you start thinking there’s also something wrong with your hair, your body, your clothes, your accent. A woman came up to me and said, ‘I’d love to have your skin because it’s so beautiful.’ She was as pale as could be, and my first thought was, where I come from, people want to be your color. It was then that I realized people always want what they don’t have. And I decided to be happy with the way I’m made.”
–”Slumdog Millionaire” actress Frieda Pinto, on learning to accept herself. When she was a model, Pinto admitted she used to audition for jobs selling “fairness creams,” which aimed to lighten Indian skin to a Caucasian ideal. [ONTD] Keep reading »

Conundrum: we hate when it’s cold and dark and snowy outside, but we do love the smells of wintertime: fresh-baked cookies, mulled cider and fir trees. So, Thymes’ Frasier Fir candle is right up our alley; it smells just like the holiday season without making us have to bundle up against the elements.
Every few weeks, without fail, trend makers come out with a new style forecast, predicting what everyone will be wearing in the coming months. RIght now, The New York Times style section is calling for longer hems, citing dresses and skirts that skim ankles or end at the calf. But when you’re short, those longer lines don’t always work well. At five feet tall, I find that the perfect length for me is mid-knee–short enough that I look proportioned, but not so short that I feel like I’m dressing too young for my age (32). But everyone’s different, and what’s mini for you, might be maxi for someone else. So tell us: what’s your ideal skirt length? And what’s your favorite go-to skirt? Keep reading »
Last night on “Late Night With David Letterman,” Eva Longoria shilled her new cookbook in a cute short and blazer set, and almost had a wardrobe malfunction of epic proportions when her blazer button accidentally popped open (and yes, Letterman couldn’t keep his eyes off her chest). Them’s the breaks when you wear a blazer sans shirt, we suppose. Still, we love the look and think Eva looks extra stylish here. We found a few other celebs who took businesswear to a sexy place with a blazer-minus-shirt combo. Check ‘em out after the jump!

Rachel Bilson is stupid hot. And she happens to look great in pretty much everything she wears. Most of the time, the combination of those two things would inspire a deep and unabiding jealousy, but Bilson just seems so cool and likable. We love this little easy, breezy ensemble she wore to a party at Lincoln Center recently, so we thought we’d try to recreate it for you. Check out our interpretation after the jump! Keep reading »
