Kelly Osbourne Is Like, Whatever, Just A $250,000 Manicure

Nail art has been around for a long while, but only in the past year or so has it evolved from something you were more likely to see on your cool artsy friend into a ubiquitous trend spotted on everyone from Zooey Deschanel to Beyoncé. The $50 Minx manicure made popular by Katy Perry i…

Get Her Look: Julianne Hough’s Bronze Belle Époque Beauty From The Emmys

Sunday night's Emmy Awards gave us a seasonally mixed beauty bag — summery bright lips and dark sultry eyes cropped up in equal abundance, while makeup stalwarts like matte red lips and high-density lashes seemed to take a backseat to more innovative looks. As runway beauty becomes more dramatic and daring, Hollywood follows suit —…

Rashida Jones Photographed Like You’ve Never Seen Her Before For “Flaunt” Magazine

Rashida Jones? Is that you? We've always known the "Parks and Recreation" actress to be beautiful but restrained, given that her personal style, not to mention the type of role she generally goes for, veers more on the sweet, bookish side rather than the total bombshell she could totally be if she wanted to (no…

Fall Must Haves: 11 Pretty-As-A-Painting Baroque Pieces

Think baroque, with its shadowy drama, rich colors, and exaggerated opulence, is best left in 17th century Europe? Think again: the grand, flourishing stylization is experiencing a revival, and not in the medium you would think. After appearing on fall runways from Balmain to Dolce & Gabbana, what's old has become new again in chiaroscuro…

Beauty Cues: Katie Holmes Is Green And Gilded On The Cover Of “Bazaar” Russia

It's been some time since our long-running Free Katie campaign finally came to fruition, and there seems to be just the atmospheric shift we were hoping for: Suri is enrolled in a real brick-and-mortar school for mortals, and not only was Katie Holmes able to offer her Holmes & Yang presentation at NYFW, but she'…

Fall Must Haves: 10 Oxblood Pieces (They’re Less Scary Than They Sound)

Flip open any fashion magazine this season and I guarantee it will declare fall's hottest color as oxblood. Not human blood, not cow blood, not goat blood, not any of the other grosser sounding color names on Winona's list, but oxblood! Otherwise known by the considerably less alarming name "maroon," it's a deep, sort of dull…

Fall Beauty Inspiration: 10 Seasonal Looks From The Stars

We know: what with the dreary weather and spring/summer Fashion Weeks on the brain just to rub it all in, it's pretty much impossible to get excited about fall. The beauty aspect is especially depressing, considering it's time to trade in our tinted SPF moisturizers for foundation, tousled ombre waves for darker autumnal hues, and…

Watch Lana Del Rey Take On David Lynch In This TV Ad For H&M

There was a moment there when I thought Lana Del Rey would be but a blip on our collective cultural radar given that, um, everyone kind of seemed to hate her, but with big-name brands like Mulberry, Jaguar, and H&M backing the controversial songstress, it seems like Lana will have a role in the zeitgeist…

Beauty How-To: Get The Perfect Precise Statement Lip For Fall In Five Easy Steps

The cooler seasons always call for more dramatic beauty looks, from sultry smoky eyes to vampy red lips, but this year's focus is especially inclined toward a statement lip that's a touch darker than the usual fall fare. Most of us (myself included) won't have the guts for the vampy bordeaux lips we've been seeing…

Well Played: Amy Adams Hits A Home Run At The Premiere Of “Trouble With The Curve”

Amy Adams tends to be pretty hit-or-miss on the red carpet — or, in this case, Astroturf — but she nailed it last night at the LA premiere of baseball flick "Trouble With The Curve." I'm not usually a fan of one-shouldered dresses (they just make me wonder, why?), but the rich, autumnal color and…

That’s A Lot Of Look: Brooke Mueller Needs A Lesson In American History

Does Brooke Mueller not realize the cultural paradox she's evoking by wearing a clearly Native American-inspired ensemble with an American flag draped over it? Does her comprehension of our country's history only extend to a fifth-grade level? Wait, don't answer that, answer this: is Brooke Mueller potentially crazier than Charlie Sheen[Photo: Bauer-Griffin]

Kristen Stewart Sounds A Little Too Sure Of Herself In Glamour Germany

"I would never work with people who aren’t really creative and aren’t committed to what they do. Unfortunately, there are a lot of those people out there, they are fucking everywhere, and they try to suck the soul out of you. For example, I would never do a makeup campaign, even though the [final] photo…

Spotted at New York Fashion Week: the inimitable Aila Wang, three-year-old niece of designer Alexander Wang and total future It girl.

Karl Lagerfeld Wants You To Know What He Really Meant To Say About Pippa

"I didn't mean that! I only meant I don't think her makeup is right; she has a roundish face and round eyes and she should pick another makeup for the eyes." — Karl Lagerfeld attempts to clarify his comments regarding Pippa Middleton after they were apparently misconstrued. The Kaiser professed not long ago that Pippa…

Rumor Has It That Adele Will Collaborate With Burberry On A Plus-Size Line

I'm not plus-size, but as a fashion-loving girl who's small-framed and somewhat oddly proportioned, I completely sympathize with the plight that is finding quality clothing that not only just kind of fits but truly flatters. It can be incomprehensibly difficult to style a woman who doesn't adhere to the slim, often straight up-and-down silhouette that…

The Met Costume Institute Chooses An Unlikely Subject For Next Year’s Exhibit

Killer news for gritty Sid Vicious appreciators and louche Givenchy fanatics alike: the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute has announced the subject of next year's illustrious spring exhibition, and they're drawing inspiration from some very badly behaved candidates. On the heels of this year's "Schiaparelli and Prada" exhibit, which drew less-than-desirable numbers, the museum…

Beauty Test Drive: Jane Iredale Glow Time Full Coverage Mineral BB Cream

Not long ago, BB cream was the biggest buzz in beauty. But lately, it's all but disappeared from the lips of magazine editors and bloggers. Brands that are just now getting on their BB game are, well, kind of late to the party. The Asian favorite formula ended up being a bit of a disappointment…

Where Authenticity In Street Style Dies, Shameless Corporate Promotion Lives

When the term "street style" was first coined, it was the domain of the unstudied, the unstaged, the stylist or editor or blogger wearing an outfit that she had purchased and put together herself. Candid street style at its heart and in its purpose was refreshingly free of the business element that defines much, if…

Well Played: Monica Bellucci Brings Dolce & Gabbana Florals To Life

Is there anyone in the world who wears Dolce & Gabbana better than the brand's longtime muse, Monica Bellucci? I think not. The 47-year-old mother of two (seriously) is flawless and all, but — that dress. I'm enamored of the obscenely gorgeous photorealistic florals the design duo behind the Italian fashion house conjured up for their…
