A Starry Autumn Night Has Never Smelled So Good

Leave it to LUSH to formulate the perfect antidote for those autumn-onset blues with a sweet starry-night-in-a-bottle ― and to make it a bittersweet limited edition, so that we’ll have to ration it all spring and summer long. Twilight Shower Gel, the sudsy incarnation of the brand’s beloved Twilight Bath Bomb, only comes around once…

Beauty Test Drive: Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar

Ever since I got in on the bold lipstick game, I’ve been on the hunt for the most pigmented, longest-lasting color around. It’s fairly safe to say that I’ve tried at least half of the formulas on the market (or at least that you can buy at Sephora, where I am basically the resident squatter),…

Style Stealer: Olivia Wilde’s Fun, Fierce Leather Look

Not only did Olivia Wilde give a fiercely awesome (and hilariously revealing!) monologue alongside other female game changers at Glamour’s “These Girls” event, but she also managed to look pretty damn fierce while doing so. The starlet, accompanied by boyfriend Jason Sudeikis, had the honor of finishing off the evening’s performances with her own frank,…

Win This! Soap & Glory Shower Trip Travel-Size Set ($50 Value)

Sometime in the next few months, you may want to consider exchanging your current (cold, dark, wintry) location for something just a bit more tropical. (Hawaii? The Caribbean?

This Week In Style: French Vogue’s Carine Roitfeld Goes To Harper’s Bazaar

Despite having just launched her new magazine last month, Carine Roitfeld has signed on as Global Fashion Director for Harper’s Bazaar. The former Vogue Paris EIC will produce “limited series of fashion stories” for all 26 of the mag’s international editions. Ever more intriguing is Roitfeld’s loaded decision to jump ship to Hearst. We…

Beauty Cues: Christina Hendricks’s Peachy Flush

This rosy look is amazing on Christina Hendricks, right? It’s incredibly flattering to her coloring ― she looks gorgeous and natural but not washed out or underdone. These pale shades may not work for everyone, but any skin tone can adapt a similar look by using deeper colors that echo the undertones of the complexion.

Makeup 101: “What Do I Need All Of These Brushes For?”

I’m a longtime makeup fiend, but up until last year I had yet to be schooled in the magic of makeup brushes. Sure, I used the small, tapered type to flick on my gel eyeliner, and a couple of shoddy shadow brushes I had accumulated from long-forgotten palettes, but the numerous varieties and purposes were…

Watch: Karl Lagerfeld Meets A Cat Named After Him On French TV

Just one time won’t do; you’re going to have to watch this video at least twice before you can even begin to comprehend what’s going on … and maybe not even then. Karl Lagerfeld graced French television Monday night as a guest on talk show Le Grand Journal and, naturellement, the subject arose of le

Halloween Costume Inspiration: Jayne Mansfield

First there was Marilyn, and then there was Jayne. Busty, (bottle) blonde, and ribald, Mansfield became known as the “Working Man’s Monroe” for both her physical likeness to Norma Jeane and her own brand of salacious, exaggeratedly sexual appeal. “Hollywood’s smartest dumb blonde” had a genius IQ and was fluent in five languages, but she…

The Beautiful And The Boring From Chanel Fine Jewelry Anniversary Party

Let’s talk about Places I Wish I Had Been Last Night: Chanel fêted the 80th anniversary of their “Bijoux De Diamants” collection here in New York and, as one can always anticipate from an occasion hosted by the illustrious French fashion house, a host of starlets and socialites alike showed up in their Lagerfeld finest.

What’s The Mystery That Has Brad Pitt Banished To The Corner?

Have you ever wished you could hear Brad Pitt whisper sweet nothings to you, or anyone really, just once? (I would totally listen to a taping of Brad and Angelina’s pillow talk, wouldn’t you?) Well, you’re in luck, because Chanel is making your dreams come true (kind of like they always do, then cruelly price…

Love It Or Leave It: Elle Fanning’s Print-Happy Maxi Dress

I was all about Hot Topic and graphic Ts when I was Elle Fanning’s age, which is plenty embarrassing enough without someone like Elle running around looking consistently on point. Her sartorial sense is impressive at any age, but the fact that she’s so well-dressed at 14 is frankly kind of mind-blowing. Yes, I would…

The Lady Stars Of “Parks And Recreation” Are Looking Pretty Fabulous

Who knew that April Ludgate, Leslie Knope, and Ann Perkins were so damn stylish? The “Parks and Recreation” trifecta cleaned up ever-so-nicely for an event hosted by Glamour, and I barely recognized the Pawnee politicians out of their buttoned-up office attire. Do you think they carpooled? I hope they carpooled. I want to be invited…

Makeup Bag: 4 Tested-And-True Primers That Will Change Your Routine For Good

To someone who doesn’t, like me, spend a good portion of their waking hours putting on, perfecting, and removing makeup, there may be some confusion surrounding the use of primer. A few weeks ago I set out to clarify what exactly this extra step does for your makeup and why it’s worth taking the time…

Beauty Cues: Kate Upton’s Soft Grey Shadow And Mauve Lips

The verdict is still out on whether Kate Upton will be able to transition smoothly from lad mag favorite to glossy cover star, but I think it’s safe to say that the odds are in her favor: she had a small (fully clothed!) feature in Vogue back in June, and Olivier Zahm (though not exactly…

Fall Must Haves: 10 Leather Bottom Pieces In An Array Of Colors

Celebs may have worn it first, but we’ve been feeling leather (and leather-look) pants, shorts, and skirts in the forecast for some time now. The right piece fits seamlessly into any wardrobe; it can be the centerpiece of an outfit in color or worn with anything in black. Either way, it’s a luxurious, classic look…

Halloween Costume Inspiration: Kristen Stewart At Her Finest

Rest assured, you’ve got a couple of weeks to prepare your costume before the Halloween party invitations start rolling in, but why don’t we start off with something that’s especially easy to, um, swallow should you find yourself in a spectacular rush come October 30? Mid-scandal Kristen Stewart is only the easiest, most timely costume…

My, Does Your Hair Looks Sharp Today

I like to think of my sartorial sensibility as a delicate balance between what’s lovely and girlish and what’s, well, kind of rough around the edges; for every piece in my wardrobe that’s lacy, silk, or floral, there’s a pair of black leather boots just waiting to be worn with it. For the girl —…

Style Stealer: Nikki Reed’s Casual Colorblocking

Nikki Reed may not have quite the same level of notoriety as some of her more, ahem, high-profile “Twilight” co-stars, but if the newlywed’s low-key lifestyle is any indication, she wouldn’t have it any other way. Regardless, with (count ‘em!) four starring movie roles coming up in the next year, I don’t think it will…
