Well Played: What Do You Mean, Amy Adams Is Not A Disney Princess In Real Life?

I have an unreasonably difficult time separating gorgeous ginger Amy Adams from her Disney princess character in “Enchanted.” This is exactly what I imagine a princess would wear should she leave the castle to attend a small awards ceremony, because duh, princesses always wear floor-length Oscar de la Renta, even to fairly casual events.

A Lipstick Pencil To Solve Any Equation

For all my love of all the makeup, I’m undeniably fickle. I buy and try everything, only to eventually cast it all aside because it isn’t quite perfect. This is especially true when it comes to my lip color ― not only do I need the hottest, brightest orange-leaning red this side of the sun,…

Natalie Portman’s Dior Mascara Ad Banned In The UK

I’m pretty much apathetic in the face of Photoshop. It’s an annoying (and undeniably rampant) practice for sure, but at this point I’m just like, “duh, nobody looks like that.” It’s ridiculous! But if there’s one variety of photo-altering that really, truly baffles me, it’s in the case of beauty advertisements. Are we seriously supposed…

Love It Or Leave It?: January Jones Does Retro Style Better As Betty

I have all sorts of questions about January Jones. Who in the world is her baby daddy? Is she ever going to tell? Is she as bitchy in real life as she is on TV? Is Betty Draper the only character she does well despite her otherwise subpar acting abilities because she’s essentially just playing…

Robert Pattinson Is In Possession Of The Best Shirt Ever, But Probably Not For Long

“I was so surprised [by the ending of ‘Marley & Me’] that I was devastated. It was awful. I never want to see it again. I can’t take it. I hate people but I love dogs.”
― You and me both, Robert Pattinson, you and me both. It’s quotes like these that reinforce the…

This Week In Style: Too-Skinny Minnie Makes Waves

The latest Disney star to come under fire isn’t Miley Cyrus or Demi Lovato — nope, it’s Minnie Mouse, who’s stirring up controversy over her gaunt appearance in this year’s Barneys holiday campaign. (At left: Minnie before her dramatic weight loss.) [Change.org]
Kendall and Kylie Jenner have scored the gig of a lifetime:…

Sneak Peek: Target And Neiman Marcus’s Designer Holiday Collaboration

Target and Neiman Marcus are at absolute opposite ends of the retail spectrum, which is all the more reason for them to want to come together, right? Whatever the logic behind their decision to collaborate, we have no complaints, even less so now that we’ve gotten to see each of the 55 items from the…

It’s Official: That “Squishy Brick” Kate Upton Landed Her First Full “Vogue” Editorial

Kate Upton has weathered her fair share of critics in her brief career thus far, including an incident early this year in which Victoria’s Secret runway caster Sophia Neophitou cruelly said of the then-teenager’s look, “She’s like a footballer’s wife, with the too-blond hair and that kind of face that anyone with enough money ca…

French Artist Sculpts A 330-Pound Cube Out Of Yves Saint Laurent Lipstick

Leave it to the French to come up with a fresh, creative, avant-garde use for a practical product from one of their most iconic brands: conceptual artist Fabrice Hyber crafted a 330-pound, one-meter cube, titled “1m3 de Beauté” (or “One Cubic Meter of Beauty”) of solid Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture lipstick in shade…

Karl Lagerfeld Photographs Victoria Beckham In Chanel’s Iconic Paris Home

It’s not every day that Karl Lagerfeld deems a fashionista worthy of being photographed in Coco Chanel’s iconic former Paris home at 31 Rue Cambon, so it’s kind of remarkable that he chose Victoria Beckham over someone like, say, Blake Lively. I totally thought Blake was his dress-up doll of choice these days. I do have…

Unlikely Style Inspiration: The Sister Witches Of “Hocus Pocus”

The 1993 Disney Halloween comedy “Hocus Pocus” is straight-up one of my favorite movies of all time. I assume everyone has seen it already, but if not, I wouldn’t want to ruin it for you — you just have to watch it, with or without the under-16 audience for which it’s intended. Halloween may be…

Beauty Cues: Marion Cotillard’s Sooty Brown Eyeliner Is Parisian Perfection

I’ve finally pinpointed the root of my weird obsession with Marion Cotillard: she is the real live version of the naturally lovely, ever-nonchalant, I-want-to-be-her French girl that I previously thought to exist only in my imagination. But here she is! While promoting her new movie “Rust and Bone” at the London Film Festival over the…

Well Played: Solange Knowles Is Officially My False Fashion God

Game over, everybody. Solange Knowles, in head-to-toe Dolce & Gabbana baroque and just dripping in gold, wins. It’s terrycloth sweatpants and old sports bras for me from here on out.

I Guess I Just Really Like Bill Murray, Okay?

Why do I find it so charming that, after 30+ years in Hollywood, Bill Murray still shows up to his own movie premieres in an ill-fitting, possibly dirty suit, looking like he just wandered in after crashing a kickball game? (By the way, the previous sentence is all that remains of a long and incredibly…

Style Stealer: Olivia Palermo Is Effortlessly Cool While Keeping Warm

Olivia Palermo! Why is she still famous? We have no idea, but we covet the hell out of her glossy chestnut hair and laid-back luxe wardrobe ― I guess you could say she’s kind of our Regina George. We’ve long shunned turtlenecks, but her fresh take on this thick, chunky fisherman-inspired knit breathes new life…

Vampires And Werewolves: A Brief Pre-“Twilight” History

There once was a time when, upon hearing of vampires or werewolves, people did not automatically jump to express devotion to Team Whatever. (I can’t even.) In fact, people actually whipped out their wooden crosses and silver bullets and ran. Of course, nowadays we don’t run for any damn thing, but it’s always fun to…

Well Played: Cate Blanchett In The Weirdest Dress Ever

What you are looking at right now is a fine example of Cate Blanchett’s sartorial black magic: she can pull off anything, even (and perhaps especially) the most high-fashion, higher-risk of garments like this Proenza Schouler dress, and make it work. Seriously, the image depicts both a metal ladder and a man with a butterfly…

Who Wore It Better?: The First Lady Faces Off Against Ann Romney

Now that we’ve gotten that silly town hall presidential debate out of the way, let’s discuss what’s really important: clothes! In a twist of fashion fate, First Lady Michelle Obama and Ann Romney both sported vibrant pink to last night’s event in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Egg went for a casual sheath style…
