“I’m in love with Kate Mara’s look from the ‘House of Cards’ premiere. How can a mere mortal like me score her otherworldly glowy skin and gorgeous eyes?” – Jennifer

Oh, a Mara looking freakishly flawless; what else is new? No matter how far I zoom in on this photo, I cannot find a single blemish. It must be in the DNA… or not. Dun dun dun. Let’s be honest — the key to looking this high-quality picture-perfect is tons and tons of makeup… and a little bit more for good measure. Because you’re not going to be photographed by hi-def cameras with flashbulbs under already-bright lights on a red carpet (I assume), you’ll be able to get a similar perfect finish without layers and layers of product. Good news, right? Keep reading »

  • Well, this is troubling: after Oscar de la Renta charitably allowed disgraced Dior designer John Galliano (who played a fun game of anti-Semitic dress-up just days ago) to have a hand in designing his Autumn/Winter 2013 collection, rumors abound that this could be part of the process of priming Galliano to take over for de la Renta, 80, when he retires. Ouch. [Refinery29]
  • As far as celebrities-turned-designers go, Matthew McConaughey was one of the very last guys we’d ever expect to start a menswear line… and yet JKL, inspired by his Just Keep Livin Foundation, is about to be a thing. Bizarrely, the collection will include shirts. [Huffington Post]
  • Add lingerie sales to the growing list of things that the immense, unprecedented popularity of “Fifty Shades of Grey” has helped to proliferate. Riiiiiight next to whips, chains, and Ben Wa balls. [New York Times]

An All-Natural Deodorant That Actually Does What It Claims (Really!)

There’s been a lot of talk in the past few years about chemicals in deodorant and their potential cancer-causing properties. I can’t speak to that because I’m not a scientist (weird, right?), but I do know that traditional deodorants and antiperspirants have never quite worked for me: my sensitive skin and haphazard shaving habits make me the perfect candidate for redness and irritation (and if you’ve ever applied deodorant on raw skin, you know just how painful that irritation can be), and the unmistakable plasticky-powdered-flower stench knows just how to induce a migraine in seconds flat. I used to forego the stuff altogether because I don’t have much of a natural scent, but since I’ve started exercising regularly (a novel concept!), that is no longer an option. And so began the search for a natural deodorant that isn’t Tom’s of Maine or a friggin’ rock. It’s pricy, so call me a flagrant wastrel if you must, but Lavanila’s The Healthy Deodorant is the only way to go from here. The light, fresh scents come from a combination of essential oils, and thanks to its primary ingredient (aloe!) I’ll never have to face a compulsively itchy armpit ever again. And here’s the kicker: it really works, all day long. [$18, Lavanila]

New York Fashion Week Fall 2013 Ready-To-Wear: Days 7 & 8

It’s always bittersweet when New York Fashion Week comes to a close. On one hand, editors and Fashion People citywide breathe a sigh of relief (not to mention regular people who just so happen to live near Lincoln Center); on the other hand, it significantly diminishes your chances of stealing a glimpse at Carine Roitfeld on 64th Street or spotting Karlie Kloss on the subway. Oh well, there’s always next season… or London, starting tomorrow. Finishing off NYFW Autumn/Winter 2013, we’ve got Naeem Khan, Oscar de la Renta, J. Mendel, Marchesa, Proenza Schouler, and Ralph Lauren…

I cannot say for certain how many laptops I have owned, I just know that it has been many. From my first clunky Toshiba to the 15″ MacBook Pro I purchased yesterday at the multilingual shitshow that is the Grand Central Apple Store (spotted: several separate incidents of international tourists FaceTiming on their own iPads from home as they walk around the area, what is that?), my long series of laptops and I have been through a lot together. Lo, “Laptops I Have Loved And Lost…,” otherwise known by its working title, “In Which I Finally Acknowledge That I Am A Spoiled Brat.” Keep reading »

"Lock the door..."

The British Advertising Standards Authority strikes again! The ad censorship watchdog, responsible for putting the kibosh on everything from scummy American Apparel ads to a photo of an underage Dakota Fanning holding a perfume bottle between her legs for Marc Jacobs, is cracking down on another campaign. Next up on the chopping block is a Chanel Coco Mademoiselle fragrance commercial starring Keira Knightley. Keep reading »
