Wedding Photos: Kites Are The New Balloons

So, yeah, I’m getting married this year, but you knew that. As I’m trying to figure out what the hell to do for my wedding, I’ve been pouring over loads and loads of wedding photographer blogs for inspiration, ideas and a reprieve from the machine that is the got-to-have-the-most-expensive-everything wedding industry. Mostly, I’m not sweating…

Who’s Better At The Glam Girl Look?

If this isn’t a very Hollywood beauty trend, I don’t know what is! Yesterday, both “Sherlock Holmes”‘ big-screen star Rachel McAdams and January Jones of “Mad Men” TV fame walked the same exact red carpet sporting the same old Hollywood-style glamorous hair and makeup. It’s a look that’s pretty easy to recognize—the perfect crimson li…

Shop ‘Til You Drop (Weight)

Turns out, a little (or a lot of) shopping could actually be good for you. Well, for your body, not your closet, that is. A new study from the folks at The Skinny Cow (yes, the low-fat flying saucer makers!) says the average woman burns off approximately 48,000 calories a year shopping—shopping for clothes, food,…

Line The Inner Rim Of Your Eyes Without Making A Teary Mess

Blake Lively and her gorge eyes — thanks to her perfectly lined inner rims — hit the town last night, above. We’ve talked about lining the inner rim of your eyes before, and I’m all about it, but, there’s one problemo: My eyes tear up something crazy and I can’t keep my eyeliner in place.

Hair Model Citizen: Jennifer Connelly’s Evening Pony

Last night, actress Jennifer Connelly sported a chic and simple ponytail that wins the we-all-can-do-it Hair Model Citizen award. Love how she worked with her hair’s natural texture and didn’t fall into the trap of some elaborate updo for a more low-key event and night out. Oh, and I clearly adore that I can so…

Not Your Mother’s China

Ever thought of eating off of plates tagged with graffiti? Well, if they are anything like the set of china (above), you should! The “New York Delft” dinnerware collection is made of fine porcelain and has five pieces — a dinner plate, side plate, soup bowl, cup and saucer. (It’s $100 per set.) [lovegrove &

How To Get Polished (Natural-Looking!) Brows

Loads of great brows were on display last night at the Fox All-Star Party—check out Olivia Wilde and Aisha Tyler, above, rocking pretty, natural (but definitely filled-in) eyebrows. I was never a brow filler-in-er, but as I recently learned, a polished, full, neat set of eyebrows really does transform your entire face. (A rule of…

Behold, Vanessa Paradis (aka Johnny Depp‘s main squeeze) in the first photo from her new Chanel ad campaign for the brand’s Rouge Coco lipstick.

Another Place To Wear A Thong

I’m convinced that there are two types of people in this world—you’re either a long-time thong wearer and devotee or you just can’t stand having a piece of fabric wedged in between your butt cheeks. Personally, I loathe thongs. But a thong as jewelry? I’m all about it! Check out this cheeky (sorry, couldn’t resist)…

A Different Kind Of “Mood” Ring

Bored of your bling? Sorry, you’re out of luck … well, unless you bought this interchangeable diamond stone ring.

Looking For A T-Shirt Not Everyone Has?

Rather than going for the seen-everywhere J.Crew or Urban Outfitters T-shirts this season, think about expanding your cotton-horizons: L.A. photographer Max Wanger (he’s ah-mazing!) has turned some of his most beloved photos into adorable T-shirts. Every month he creates another design in very limited quantities and when you order, you get a postcard of the…

Do You Put Mascara On Your Lower Lashes?

What are your thoughts on mascara and lower lashes? We know that Amy Adams, above, is a fan of the stand-out makeup move—or maybe it’s just that her makeup artist is, of course. Personally, I’m not a fan—it feels a little too overdone, like my lower lashes are in a look-at-me competition with my upper…

Love It Or Hate It: Jessica Alba’s Blunt Cut

For those of you in the “I love” category, here’s what you ask your stylist for (bring in a photo of Jess, too): No layers—well, no…

How To Get That Old Funk Out Of Your Vintage Gear

You know that vintage funk smell—a little musty, a bit pungent cheese-smelling and sort of moldy. Well, stink be gone: Janie Bryant, the “Mad Men” costume designer who turns out Betty, Don and the rest of the Sterling Cooper gang in ridiculously sexy (but not always overtly so) looks week after week (and clearly know…

Name The Reality TV Star!

We’re not usually ones to blow up a celeb’s plastic surgery spot, and we’re not saying “Real Housewife” Danielle Staub actually made a trip to the get-younger-and-slimmer doctor but … Yeah, the next season of table-flipping, shenanigan-fun won’t catch her with a surprised look on her face—well, beyond the one’s she’s got now, and forever…
