Genius—The Newspaper Print Clutch!

Sure, newspapers are dying a slow death around the world, but that didn't stop Mitemite from cheekily reinventing them. Behold, the newspaper print clutch. It's designed to look like a folded newspaper, including the crazy tabloid headlines (Charles Manson! Drunk Europeans having sex! Dead babies coming back to life!) and chrome chain shoulder strap to…

Women’s Magazines Shocked By Bald Women Photos

Milan/Paris-based photographer Enzo dal Verme (he's shot for Vanity Fair, l'Uomo Vogue, Marie Claire, Grazia, Elle, etc.) has shot a series of bald women in a new gallery called "Bald is Beautiful."

What’s Your Fashion Kryptonite?

Scott Schuman (aka The Sartorialist) was lamenting just yesterday about how he loves a nice chunky cardi, but because of his body type (and maybe fashion personality?) he can't ever pull one off. I'm with you, Scott! There's just some stuff I either don't have the guts to wear or would just look horrid o…

How To Get Under-Eye Concealer Right

No, Nicole Kidman, no! The other night, Nicole's under-eye makeup was a bit too aggressively light in tone. I feel for her, under-eye makeup is one of the hardest things to get right—it's either too dark, too light, too much, not enough. And seeing as though we are smack in the middle of holiday going-out…

Beauty Product Reviews—Do You Read ‘Em?

I recently received a free sample of the Bliss Triple Oxygen mask from Sephora (sidebar: sign up for their "Beauty Insider" card; you build up points and get loads of free samples), and after a few applications, loved its effects.

How To Get A Perfect Cat Eye (Like Jen Garner’s In W)

While W may have Photoshopped out all that makes Jennifer Garner look like Jennifer Garner, they didn't go wrong in the makeup department. Look at the fierce cat eye! Adore.

The Easy Way To Tame Baby Hairs

This isn't a how-to-do-an-updo post—but I do really love Lake Bell's latest updo. Check out all of her baby hair running along her hairline—we all have it to some degree, and it can be totally annoying to deal with. The damn baby hairs just don't stay put where you want them to. Getting them wet…

A Trick For Small Lips

And no, it's not "inject a filler." C'mon. So yeah, it's holiday season and nothing says holidays! like a great red lip. The only problem for some of us? Thin lips. Not to worry, Teen Vogue got a few tips from celeb makeup artist Tina Turnbow (a Jessica Szohr prettifier) on how to wear a…

Pearls—What’s It To You?

According to The Moment (and a large handful of designer runway shows, included Mr. Marc Jacobs) pearls are B-A-C-K, back! Mostly, I find them sort of ho-hum/blah and way too prim and proper, especially when not jazzed up in some way (like Lanvin does with it's gorge pearls-wrapped-in-black-lace necklaces). But try as I may to…

Brilliant Gift Idea: Ballet—Wii-Style!

No, I was never one of those little girls being dropped off in her little pink tutu for ballet class—hell, I couldn't even hack it in the "dance" portion of gymnastics, and my sister and I bailed on the class right before it was time to for my mother to pay for our recital get-ups.

Quick Tip Of The Day: Put Vaseline Everywhere, Seriously

When the going gets cold and dry outside, the tough slather on Vaseline—everywhere. It's a cheap old-school remedy we always overlook for dry patches, chapped lips, red, flaky noses, and grody winter feet.
