Fashion loves a good cat (see: exhibits A, B, C, D, E, the Choupette phenomenon in its entirety, and so on and so forth), but it seems to me like Jean-Paul Gaultier took a good long look at the fashion world at large and declared, “NOPE, STILL NEEDS MORE LEOPARD PRINT.” Which is presumably how a handful of the models, along with all of the clothes, at his Paris Haute Couture show ended up with the ubiquitous speckled print right on their heads. Not a look that will translate particularly well off the runway, to be sure, but it certainly is cool to look at…
Eyebrows! Everybody’s got ‘em, but not everybody’s got great ones. Thick or thin, bushy or well-contained, we know a good set when we see it… and, as with many things (especially beauty!), having access to the best brow magicians in the biz means that celebs pretty much own the eyebrow game. Don’t believe us? Check out these 10 sets of killer celeb brows…
Our affection for rare, gorgeous natural red hair is well-documented, and our love for celebrity redheads knows no bounds. Whether they’re natural-born gingers like Jessica Chastain and Isla Fisher or artificially-enhanced like Riley Keough and Christina Hendricks makes no difference to us — we’ll take ‘em all. Here are 10 of our favorite celebrity shades of red…
Bug bites, sunburn, greasy hair, acne, dreaded razor burn from so much shaving — these problems aren’t pretty, but they sure as hell happen, and none of us are immune. These 5 remedies for common summertime beauty ailments may not be the most glamorous of products, nor will they look all that attractive on top of your dresser, but hey, they get the job done!

For those of us who generally ignore the fact that we have lips, the idea of wearing lip color can be intimidating. Even if you have the whole lipstick color scheme down to a science, sorting through the lip aisle can be daunting. Glosses, crayons, and stains. Oh my! (You should see how many different lipsticks we receive here daily!) Everyone wants a glamorous starlet smile and why the hell not?
In our new video series, “I Want That,” Rachel and I pucker up and give our honest opinions on some of this summer’s hottest lip products. Watch above!
Well, well, well! It looks like somebody stopped in to WAH Nails before hitting the courts at Wimbledon. Serena Williams maaaaaay not necessarily know what the fuck she is talking about, but girlfriend always serves it up solid on the nail art front, that’s for sure. [Photos: Bauer Griffin]
Our dear friend Almie Rose is back and with a new drunken makeup tutorial for how to look like “Mad Men”‘s resident married upstairs apartment hussy Sylvia Rosen. You want to look like Sylvia, right? With the lips, and the eyeshadow, and the potentially explosive extramarital affair with Don Draper? Well, regardless, Almie has a thing or two to teach you about a thing or two.
Oh also, Almie has a book out! What do you do when your ex leaves you for his A-list actress ex girlfriend? How do you land a musician boyfriend? What’s it like to make a total jackass of yourself when you meet that actor you’ve had a crush on for years? What would When Harry Met Sally… look like in 2013? Am I hungry? These questions and more are answered and explored by Almie Rose in I Forgot To Be Famous, essays and how-to’s about dating, relationships, living in Los Angeles, and how they all crash into each other, like the car chase scene in the mall in the Blues Brothers movie, which she hasn’t seen, but is not at all opposed to. I Forgot to Be Famous will be available for pre-order tomorrow and on-sale on Monday!
I am obsessed with freckles, falling just short of dotting them on myself with tonal eyeliner every day (uh, not like I haven’t entertained the idea, though), so naturally I am all sorts of delighted that they let Emma Watson keep hers on the August cover of Teen Vogue. Cover girls being permitted to show their natural skin texture? What a world! (“Emma Watson’s World,” apparently.)
Adele is pretty loyal to her signature glamorous, ’60s-inspired beauty look — the chanteuse is rarely spotted without voluminous hair, flawless skin, a serious cat eye, and a bright red or nude lip. A more pared-down “natural” look is not one we’re accustomed to seeing on her… But now that we’ve seen it, we can’t imagine why she doesn’t wear it more often! The milkmaid-style braids are a massive departure from her trademark beehive, but she wears them well. Perhaps being a new mom has Adele interested in a more low-maintenance look, or maybe it has something to do with the fact that she’s in New York right now, where the current temperature is one million degrees. Regardless, so pretty! (I would also add that this is total summer hair inspiration, but those braids are complicated, goddamnit!)
Blondes, blondes, blondes. Gentlemen prefer them! They have more fun! They make the best victims, they’re like virgin snow that shows up the bloody footprints! Sorry, what? (Relax, it’s Hitchcock.) All I know is that I suffer from what’s been a pretty much lifelong case of Major Blonde Envy. Ill-fated attempts at flaxen have only turned my naturally super-dark hair a sad, burnt-looking shade of orange-red, so I’ve accepted my fate as being forced to observe from the sidelines… and don’t celebrities make the best subjects to appreciate vicariously from afar? I wouldn’t say that these 10 gorgeous celeb blondes, from platinum to honey and everything in between, make me feel any better about my intangible blonde ambitions, but they sure are nice to look at!
