Kate Upton Indulges Your Sexy Nun Fantasy

Kate Upton drew a lot of attention last year when she debuted as the first Victoria’s Secret catalogue model with more than one precent body fat. We haven’t seen much of her since, but pictures of her as a “sexy nun” in the modern adaptation of “The Three Stooges” hit the web last week. Her…

Barbie Gets An Afro For The Holidays

When I picture Barbie, it’s with her signature straight blonde hair, unrealistically perky (and hard) boobs, and undeniably Caucasian skin tone and features. Sure, there’s darker-skinned Teresa and, uh, gingery Midge who sported a fetus in her hollowed belly, but they all have distinctly European features and hair. An African-American natural hair group is reclaiming…

Winter Beauty: 10 Festive Holiday Lipsticks

I love lipstick and own many, but wearing them on a regular day makes me feel … overdone. Of course, the unfortunate byproduct of this is that I rarely give myself the opportunity to wear the colours that I just had to have. Luckily, the winter holiday season is the perfect justification for me. Partie…

Angelina Jolie Covers Marie Claire, Talks About Brad & The Kids

I refuse to be shy about my love for Angelina Jolie. I’m adamantly not crazy about many, if not most, celebrities, so it’s a rare star that has me totally smitten. I think Angelina can do no wrong; I love her on drugs, off drugs, thin, emaciated, on the red carpet, off the red carpet,…

Holiday Gift Guide: 10 Gifts For The Avid Bath-Taker

If you catch me with my fingers pruned and my heart rate sluggish, chances are I just got out of the bath. Yes, I have been known to linger in the tub for well over an hour… sometimes approaching two. Sylvia Plath summed it up best in The Bell Jar when she said, “There must…

Scarlett Johansson Is Glad She Got Married

“Getting married was the right thing to do because it was natural. It grew out of a romance and love and a desire to have a future with somebody, and I was very fortunate that I married somebody who turned out to be the person I thought he would be.”

Olivia Wilde Says A Strong Lip Makes Her Look Like A “Tranny”

“A strong eye and a strong lip is hard for my face. I can go tranny really fast. It’s true, because I have a really strong jaw. So for me, I just have to be cognizant of the way that it transforms my face.”
– Olivia Wilde deploys a controversial word choice while talking beauty

Homeschooling Tips From “Toddlers & Tiaras”

For what it’s worth, the mothers depicted on “Toddlers & Tiaras” are not widely considered the bastions of good parenthood. I’ve never actually watched the show, but from what I’ve heard and the clips I’ve seen, the parents of the pageant girls make a damn good case for exactly how not to raise a child.

10 Makeup Palettes That Are Almost Too Pretty To Use

I’ll admit it: much of the reason I own so much makeup is because I’m a sucker for aesthetics. Glossy gold tubes, shiny lettering, minimalist sans-serif fonts… these are all variables that contribute to me forking over my debit card in yet another Sephora sin, but what really gets me is colors. When I ope…

Twenty-three-year-old Lauren Scruggs, a model and former intern for “Gossip Girl” who you may or may not recognize from her fashion blog, sustained devastating injuries after accidentally walking into the spinning propeller of a small plane. It may sound bizarre at first, but remember that a spinning propeller would be entirely invisible to the naked…

Winter Beauty: 6 Fragrances Perfect For The Season

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…

Shopping Guide: Holiday Jewelry That Isn’t Tacky

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 seaso…

Chanel Iman’s 21st Birthday & Other Extravagant Celeb Birthday Parties

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…

7 Gorgeous Red Lipsticks & The Celebs Who Love Them

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.

New York Mag Has A Lot To Say About Miranda Kerr

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…
