If there’s one thing that compels me to invest in a new perfume, it’s the change of seasons. While my favorite Lancôme Miracle, a unique peppery floral, suits me perfectly throughout most months of the year, I find myself craving a warmer, woodsier scent when the temperature drops. I’ve rounded up a few perfect winter fragrances, both old favorites and new releases — they can’t keep you toasty, but they can make you smell warm. Keep reading »

One of the worst things I’ve ever had someone say to me is, “You look … festive.” Around the holidays, it can be hard to determine where to draw the line between kitschy holiday accessories and what’s, well, more suited as a wreath than a bracelet. I’ve rounded up some jewelry for the holiday season that manages to be chic while still injecting a bit of holiday spirit.

Why am I not surprised that Chanel Iman’s 21st birthday party today is taking place on a private island? The model has rented a small island off the coast of Jamaica where she’ll be ringing in legal drinking age with a reggae-themed bash. If that doesn’t sound like one poppin’ party, I don’t know what does. [Fashionista]
I have to give Chanel credit, though, because her fête sounds positively down-to-earth in comparison to some other celebrity birthday blowouts we’ve seen …
Move over, Scarlett! Dolce & Gabbana: The Makeup has selected Felicity Jones as the new face of their upcoming Kohl Collection, to debut the first day of the new year. The designers chose Jones to play the “aristocratic sauvage girl” that inspired the line, which is comprised of five new shades of kohl eyeliner and an eye palette — and who wears eyeliner these days better than the gorgeous Brit? If you’ve never heard of Felicity, you may remember her as the Autumn/Winter 2011 face of Burberry Prorsum. She’s currently starring on the silver screen in Like Crazy, which I haven’t seen because I think it would make me cry. Regardless, Felicity is most definitely having a huge moment right now, and why shouldn’t she? She’s young, British, beautiful, and on the verge of becoming the latest indie darling. Here’s 10 things you should know about this prospective It-girl.
First things first: I never wear red lipstick. I have a fatal combination of lips with a tendency to chap and a complete destitution of desire to draw attention to myself, especially my damn face. I own a number of red lipsticks, all of which I have bought with the best intentions and a daydream of a new lease on life, but they collect dust in the back of a drawer somewhere. But I just read this article over on xoJane, and I’m totally inspired. It can be a real challenge to find the right shade for your skin tone, so I thought it would be in my best interest to take cues from the people who know best*: celebrities. Maybe even I can find my perfect red, thanks to the stars. Tell me your favorite in the comments!
* Probably not.
I couldn’t tell you why, but I have a sinister obsession with the Victoria’s Secret Angels. Yes, they’re wonderfully pretty, and have insane bodies, and all that stuff, but I find myself kind of intrigued by whether or not they’re real people. Are they aliens? Tall, lithe, bronzed to perfection, fast-metabolizing aliens with silky long hair and bedroom eyes? There’s something innately bizarre about all of them, especially their questionable grips on reality. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley recently expressed her opinion that it’s worth it for every woman to “put away a dollar a week” to save up for $700+ Christian Louboutin heels, a process that would take 14 years. Really logical, Rosie.
But the Angel that both fascinates and baffles me the most is Miranda Kerr. Keep reading »
Surprise, surprise: basically all of the photos we see in the media today are Photoshopped in some way. Lighting is tweaked; blemishes, pores, and cellulite vanish; and wrinkles smooth into oblivion. But now two computer image specialists at Dartmouth College have developed a software program that can tell, say, feminist bloggers just how much an image has been altered. Keep reading »
You can find anything on Tumblr these days, but if it’s contemporary celebrities styled in retro lingerie you’re looking for, we’ve got you covered. We just discovered Bubbles Boutique and productivity has fallen to the wayside — we can’t look away. Before you check it out for yourself, I’ve compiled a few of the very best (and sexiest!) photos from the Bubbles archives. Even better, I’ll also show you how to get the looks for yourself. You can thank me later!
UPDATE: It has come to our attention from Lyn-Marie Cunliffe that this story, as it was reported on the Daily Mail UK and the UK Telegraph, is not true.
We all know that fans can be, well, fanatical. But this 49-year-old British mother has taken her love of Victorian literature just a touch too far: Lyn-Marie Cunliffe goes about her daily life dressed in full period garb as Charlotte Bronte, author of Jane Eyre. Talk about loving vintage, huh? Keep reading »
