Watermelon wouldn’t be our first choice for an eau de parfum. Who shops for fragrances thinking, “Hey, I’d really like to smell like a watermelon today?” To be more accurate, the official scents in Kate Spade‘s new eau de parfum Twirl are “pink watermelon, blackberry and red current with additional notes of orange blossom, star jasmine, sweet magnolia, and French macaron.” I would describe Twirl as “chic fruity”: you’ll smell like a fancy lady who shops at Kate Spade, but one with a whimsical and girly side.

What is up with this seemingly very photoshopped photo of Dree Hemingway lounging on a bed in an ad for Salvatore Ferragamo’s Attimo fragrance? That’s not a rhetorical question, as in, now I’m going to tell you exactly what’s been done, in my estimation, to this image. But it is decidedly strange and malformed looking, no? I think it’s got something to do at least in part with the fact that her head has been resized to ginormous proportions. It’s as big as her bottom, it seems. And perhaps her calves are way too long compared to her thighs. You’d think with whatever monster budget they had for this shoot that they could make the young Hemingway look like something other than a side show freak.

Over at The Huffington Post, Adrien Field, a young man in his early 20s, writes about getting Juvederm, an injectable line-filler to improve smile wrinkles—not, he insists, because he feels he’s aging, but rather because he’s genetically predisposed to nasolabial folds. Adrien knows women in their early 20s who have gotten Botox injections and his doctor confirms that it’s not uncommon to see men and women of Field’s age in his office: “It’s very interesting to see how — I’ve been in practice for 15 years — and the people coming in have been getting younger. If someone is in their late 20′s — it would almost be a case where normally I’d never have to do anything for someone that young, but if they happened to have spent time in the sun, if they happen to have very light skin, then it’s beneficial to do minor things: chemical peels, injectables, etc.” Keep reading »
Today there’s something a little different about my look. I haven’t cut my hair or decided to wear bright red lipstick. No, I just have on press-on nails. “Why?” you may ask. I’m here to explain, “Why not?” Keep reading »
While the customized movement in fashion makes us think we’re getting something special and personalized, too often it leaves us wanting more (we guess you could call that entitlement). For those who like things “just so,” there’s now Urban Outfitters‘ new custom makeup color mail-in program, which is just as awesome as it sounds. Looking for a lipstick to match your favorite dress? A gloss in the same shade as that sunset you snapped outside your window? A hue (that no one makes) to complement your go-to nail polish? Keep reading »
