Tavi Lends Her Voice To A New Animated Short Film

It's hard not to love Tavi. I'm generally opposed to any and all things "twee," but Tavi has enough brains and sass to transcend the genre. When I first heard about this "13-year-old fashion blogger" a couple years ago, I envisioned a delusional, entitled teen brandishing her mother's Birkin bag, shooting photos of herself o…

Beauty How-To: Steal Dianna Agron’s SAG Awards Beauty

The SAG Awards don't excite me all that much. As Amelia said in her round-up of the best dressed, it's the most self-congratulatory of the awards shows, being that its entire premise is actors awarding actors. Hollywood is nothing if not self-congratulatory, and I love it despite that, but the SAG Awards just tend…

Finally, The French Woman’s Secret To Beautiful Skin

Have you heard of micellar water? I never had until a few months ago, when I read an interview with the stunning French actress Roxane Mesquida. Her flawless, glowing skin sent me into fits of envy so powerful, I was just dying to know how she does it. Fortunately for me, this interview just…

Vanity Fair’s Annual Young Hollywood Issue Tucks Away Women Of Color, Renders Everyone Else Unrecognizable

Vanity Fair releases its Hollywood issue annually, but this year's cover is unique in that it is the first of its kind to be shot by famed photog Mario Testino. His technique translates beautifully to the cover, though it's not immediately apparent that it's his work. The 11 young actresses featured are dressed impeccably, draped…

Beauty Test Drive: REN Pore Minimizing Mask

The open pores on my nose drive me crazy, and when I say I've tried everything to shrink them, I mean everything: cleansers, masks, serums, creams, drugstore, department store, made in my kitchen, all claiming to do the same thing, and hardly ever fulfilling that promise. I had all but given up on my endeavor…

Style Retrospective: Zoe Saldana

Zoe Saldana is kind of, maybe just a little bit, having a moment. She progressed from a young ballerina yearning for success in 2000's Center Stage to the prettiest Na'vi in Avatar. Now, she's taken on a public persona as Bradley Cooper's latest (rumored) arm candy, not to mention a good samaritan who rushed to…

Makeup Bag: The Best Black Eyeliners

Black eyeliner is the dependent variable of my life. From when I wake up in the morning until I take off my makeup at night, I've got it on … and not exactly subtly, either. While I love a good tightly lined look that defines the eyes without the telltale sign of makeup, I'm all…

Doo-Ri Chung To Unveil Her Macy’s Collaboration

On the off chance that you live in deep seclusion, designer capsule collections for budget-priced stores are all the rage right now. H&M is perhaps the most prolific collaborator for this purpose: Commes des Garçons, Lanvin, and Versace have all produced lines with the mass retailer, and Marni is next in line. I'm familiar —…

The Couture Collections Are Here! Our 18 Favorite Looks From Day 3

Julie just about summed it up in her favorite looks from the first two days of Haute Couture Week when she said, "The Paris couture collections make me absolutely giddy." As a fashion-loving lady, there are so many things in its spectrum that excite me, but nothing makes me salivate so much as couture.

Karl Lagerfeld Outdoes Himself (Again)

I await each Chanel show with bated breath, thrilled at the prospect of Karl Lagerfeld's latest blowout. Need you be reminded, he notoriously flew a 265-ton glacier imported from Sweden to the venue of his Autumn/Winter 2010 show. For the Spring/Summer show that preceded it, he turned the runway into a massive barn, replete with…

Brad Pitt Discusses The Likelihood He’ll Marry Angelina Jolie

“We’d actually like to … and it seems to mean more and more to our kids. We made this declaration some time ago that we weren’t going to do it till everyone can. But I don’t think we’ll be able to hold out. It means so much to my kids, and they ask a lot.

The Best Dressed At Haute Couture Week (Days 1 & 2)

We have now entered day two of the prestigious Paris Haute Couture Week, the spark that lights the fuse of fashion weeks to follow. Yesterday was Atelier Versace (for the first time since 2004!), Alexis Mabille, Christian Dior, and Giambattista Valli, among others. This morning, not one, but two Chanel shows took place, followed by…

Marion Cotillard Is Stunning Sans Fards

Marion Cotillard is my consummate object of envy. Ethereal beauty? Check. Ridiculously handsome actor-director beau? Check. Radiant talent in strong, incredible roles, even portraying Edith Piaf herself? Check. Tack on the fact that she's about as Gallic as they come and there you have it. My beauty-crazed, Francophile self is utterly enraptured by Marion. For…

Kate Moss Lands A Major Ad Campaign

Kate Moss has long been the poster girl for anything and everything that's glamorous, rebellious, lavish, and drenched in cigarette smoke. Her numerous turns as an actual poster girl are no less noteworthy. Whether you love or hate Kate (I love), her iconic face is inescapable season after season. Spanish retailer Mango has tapped both…

Style Retrospective: Blake Lively

My, how Blake Lively has changed. I remember seeing her for the first time cast as the tomboyish soccer player Bridget in "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants." I would have never suspected that the spunky blonde who I fondly associated with a golden retriever would soon snag the role of the glossiest reformed bad…

Style Retrospective: Taylor Swift

Go ahead, put me down on the roster of people who were strongly opposed to Taylor Swift's visage plastered across the February cover of Vogue. I've always thought of her as young, immature, and reeking of eau de teenybopper: cowboy boots, a guitar, and a…

A New Skincare Regimen To Ensure 2012 Is Your Glowing-est Year Ever

With all of the new colors, formulas, and innovations that have stepped out onto the makeup scene in the past few months, it can be all too easy to let your basic skincare fall to the wayside. If you're a beauty fiend, the kind of person who enjoys nothing more than the dewy first swipe…

The Future Jolie-Pitt Acting Troupe?

When asked by E! if he envisioned the Jolie-Pitt brood becoming Hollywood royalty like their parents, Jon Voight didn't hesitate in his answer: "I do actually … I don't want to say, but I have a feeling that they will. I have no doubt … Hollywood should be afraid of them. These guys are really…

Model Injured By Plane Propeller Seen Out With Family

Last month we wrote about Lauren Scruggs, the 23-year-old model and fashion blogger who lost her left hand and eye in a freak incident with the propeller of a small airplane. It's only been six weeks since her horrific accident, but a few days ago, Lauren was seen being dropped off at a Dalla…

A Nostalgic Look Back At Johnny Depp And Vanessa Paradis

The latest in celebrity breakup-related depression is the alleged separation of Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis. I heard the rumors just last week, and chalked them up to just that — rumors. Neither of the two parties have come forward with an official statement but, lo and behold, they've landed the cover story of thi…
