Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, or so we’ve heard, but we’ll argue that rose gold is kind of our new squeeze. We don’t discriminate when it comes to precious metals, but there’s something about this one in particular that’s just so pretty. Its warm pinkish tone is so flattering on hands, and it’s less expected than the usual bronze and silver. For now, at least — rose gold is blowing up, and we may or may not be jumping on the bandwagon. Get the details on these 13 pretty rose gold pieces, and maybe we can match!
Kick off your boots, fuzzy socks, and leg warmers (um, do people wear those?): spring is coming, and soon. Okay, so that may be a little bit of wishful thinking on my part, and there may or may not have been a snowstorm less than a week ago. But still, spring is well on its way (hello, Daylight Savings Time!), and because it’s about a month too early to even think about breaking out the shorts, we’ve got spring beauty on the mind. We’re phasing out winter’s more somber lip colors — plum, berry, Bordeaux, what have you — and moving towards punchier warm-weather shades. I can’t be the only one who gets excited about seasonal makeup, right? Oh, well; here are the 7 spring lip colors we can’t (and won’t — I’ve got one of them on right now) wait to wear. Keep reading »
God, I have such a crush on Charlize Theron! She is so hot, and I love this casual outfit she wore carrying around little Jackson. Cutest accessory ever. Better still, if you love her sweater, you’re in luck: I tracked down the exact one she’s wearing, and not only is it from one of our favorite stores, it’s totally affordable and available for the buyin’. That is, it is until it sells out because Charlize was spotted in it and now everyone’s going to want one. I’m just saying. Cop yours, and the rest of her cool outfit, after the jump…

One of the most ridiculous things about both the beauty and fashion industries is their mutual insistence upon pitching literally everything at one point or another as a “hot new trend.” The New York Times Style section is particularly notorious for doing so: over the summer, they somehow mistook women having bangs for actual news. (They once did the same for dresses, but we don’t talk about that. Too painful.)
Now People StyleWatch has declared that there are two looks that are particularly popular on the red carpet right now, and you wouldn’t believe what they are. Sparkly gowns? Red lipstick? … Hair? Close! It’s smoky eyes and winged liner. Which, you know, people are never not wearing. But listen, the ladies over at People say that while these are both hot beauty trends, only the smoky eye is “guy-hot.” I have a few bones to pick with this statement. Firstly, I do so beg to differ — Brigitte Bardot and Sophia Loren are two of the sexiest sexbombs to ever sex, and they were both famous for their winged liner. Secondly, and most importantly, who the fuck cares? Isn’t it kind of a general consensus among women that we don’t wear makeup to appeal to men? And anyway, what is this universal “guy-hot” they speak of? Can someone enlighten me? (Maybe I’m just feeling vulnerable because winged liner is my go-to makeup look and I can’t master a smoky eye to save my life.) [People StyleWatch]
Fashion loves anything that straddles the very fine line between what is provocative and what is tasteless, and of course that includes romanticizing the blackened underbelly of society. If you don’t believe me, please consider the “heroin chic” phenomenon of the mid-nineties. (Also, consider the unsettling existence of a wikiHow article called “How to be Heroin Chic.”) So I guess fashion was like, “What’s gritty and ‘underground’ that we can glamorize with models and fancy clothes?,” and then they decided that prostitution would be perfect. Louis Vuitton’s latest short film (in collaboration with Katie Grand of Love magazine) features top catwalkers Cara Delevingne, Edie Campbell, Saskia de Brauw, Isabeli Fontana, Lily McMenamy, Georgia Jagger, and Magdalena Frackowiak as Parisian reines de la nuit drifting about the city streets in the brand’s romantic, lingerie-inspired Fall ’13 collection. Their path eventually leads to the actual show, where they take to the runway in the same wares. I don’t know what they are trying to say with this vague storyline — clearly they are trying to say something — but the video is pretty, and the music is nice, and hey, prostitutes! It’s not too explicit, but there are a few boobs and butts, so be wary should you work at, like, a church or something. [The Gloss]
Late-night reruns of “The Cosby Show” were my jam circa 2007, so naturally I am well-aware that Naomi Campbell appeared on the beloved sitcom… but were you? The stunning British supermodel, then 18 (that means pre-multiple assault charges, pre-blood diamonds, and even pre-babywoman), played Julia, a gorgeous (duh) classmate of Theo Huxtable. In this clip, she totally shuts down her study group’s interpretation of the patriarchy, and it is awesome. Watch it in its entirety (8 minutes spent watching an excerpt from “The Cosby Show” are 8 minutes well-spent, I always say) or skip ahead to 2:40 to see Naomi in all her glory. And if you love this crazy bitch as much as I do, check her out on “The Face” every Tuesday night at 9 EST on Oxygen! [Complex]
