Lily Donaldson Shows You How To Work Your Hair Like A Supermodel

Send A Little Green In The Mail

A postcard + pop-up card + garden = Postcarden! It's pretty much just that, but also a completely unusual way to send along a little big of greenery. Each comes with a packet of cress seeds—add water and watch the seeds grow—and choose between three models: botanical, city, and allotment. The mini-gardens last about two…

Selma Blair Does The Bowl-Bob

Selma Blair was spotted at The Gap yesterday with a brand-new haircut. Look quickly and it appears to be a very Anna Wintour-esque bob. But if you look a bit closer, her hair is reminiscent of Agyness Deyn's bowl cut, too. I'm nicknaming it the "bowl-bob." Check out the fringe cut down the front side…

Uber-Easy Flower Arranging From Erin Fetherston

Serious spring fever hitting lately. I can't wait to wear filmy, silky dresses and striped flat espadrilles, braid my won't-grow-fast-enough hair to the side, and fill my teeny apt with loads of bright and cheery flowers. I've got most of my spring prep done (got these striped espadrilles the other day), and I plan o…

Acne Does Furniture

The Swedish creative agency Acne (you may already know them for their indie fashions and jeans) has unveiled its first furniture collection. Inspired by the company's Swedish roots, they took a classic sofa design by Swede Carl Malmsten and literally stretched, squashed, and pulled it. The line features totally cool-looking pieces, even if they don't…

Hilarious Fashion Arithmetic!

Snuffleupagus + Rambo = a Pringle of Scotland, pre-fall 2010 RTW look? Silicone breast implants + a pill pack = a look from the Armani Privé spring 2010 couture show? Does Dracula + hand soap = a dress-coat combo from Chanel spring 2010? Yes, if you go to Fashematics, a totally clever and hilarious website…

The Natural Spray Tan — It Exists!

The newest, latest, and greatest in spray tans is the "weekend away" tan. In a move away from the L.A. Oompa-Loompas and perma-pumpkin folk, the "weekend away" tan is just a tiny bit of color. Subtle. Spotted all over the actresses at the BAFTAs (Kate Winslet, Audrey Tautou, Claire Danes, and Carey Mulligan), the low-key…

Sneak Peek: Liberty Of London For Target

When Bangs Attack! How To Handle Too-Long Fringe …

Nicole Richie has got herself some seriously long bangs—I have to think those get into her line of vision and bother her eyes, no? I can feel it now, every single blink is labored because your eyelashes have to disentangle themselves from your hair! Bang-wearers, what's too long? Granted, too-short bangs have their own ugly…

Do Light Roots Bother You?

We all have a bit of roots showing—well, those of us who aren't naturally this blond or redheaded or sun-kissed brunette. Mostly, I don't really mind the look. I think it gives hair dimension, makes you look real (as opposed to the Playboy bunny all-bleached-all-the-time-look—ahem, Heidi Montag) and it sends a message that, hey, you've…

Breaking Down Hair Straightening Techniques

First up, Keratin Treatments. According to Garance: "Pretty much it covers up the hair with keratin (the protein hair is made of) and then they straighten it with a flat iron that penetrates through the keratin and then you wait for it to harden… Hence three days without washing. And that’s what straightens it. And…
