Figuring out how to wear a bold lip can be a daunting task, especially if you’re not used to wearing lipstick. (Or if you’re basically used to ignoring the fact that you have lips on your face altogether.) The wrong shade can wash you out, or make you look lizard-y. And when you’re wearing a bright, bold lip color you just can’t help but feel so out there in the open.
So that’s why we teamed up with esteemed makeup artist Susana to get a quick lesson on Lipstick 101. What we learned: you don’t have to fear a bold lip. Bright lipsticks can be fun, dramatic and totally sexy!

I was shocked – shocked, I tell you! – when I discovered that Lands’ End Canvas is basically J.Crew but cheaper: super cute preppy stuff, quirky styling, good quality.

Perfume may not be for everyone, but those of us who love it really love it. I have a hyper-sensitive sense of smell — I smell things before anyone else does, and I can often identify them instantly. I can smell a new perfume offhand and rattle off the most dominant notes in it. Many of my childhood memories are steeped in scent, so much so that whenever I catch a whiff of the Yves Saint Laurent Paris perfume my mother wore when I was small, I’m suddenly five years old again.

Okay, I know his real name is Taylor Kitsch. And he’s not Tim Riggins anymore. Except in my imagination where he will always be Tim Riggins, and sometimes we go for a ride in his pickup truck and talk about his stint in the slammer and then we pull over and make out on the hood and he’s not thinking about Tyra Collette or Lyla Garrity. He’s thinking about ME. Let’s take a moment to appreciate his sexy shitkicker beauty (short hair and all) in the March issue of GQ where he channels James Dean from the classic film “Giant.” Good lord, STOP. It’s almost too much. Click through for some more glorious Riggins porn.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I almost prefer Fashion Week street style to the clothes marched down the runway. I know, I know, it’s basically blasphemy, and I acknowledge that none of the real-girl style would exist without catwalk collections to forecast trends, but there’s nothing quite like seeing an actual outfit put together in an individualistic way. Of course, the attendees of the shows also happen to be some of the best-dressed ladies in the world. Checking out street style shots induces way more envy in me than the designs alone. I always find myself thinking, “where did she get that?,” or “damn, I wish I thought of that first.” I didn’t think of it first, but I will relentlessly copycat the effortless, inspired outfits until I’ve mastered creating them myself. If you, like me, are in the throes of style thievery, try these three Paris Fashion Week street style-inspired looks on for size.
It took Will Ferrell 21 years of making jokes as an excuse to talk to girls before one finally deflowered him. He told Rolling Stone in a recent interview that he lost his virginity his junior year of college. “In my mind’s eye, it seemed like the way it was supposed to happen,” he said. But the joke was on him. He revealed that his mom assumed his deflowering took place much earlier with a “loose” high school classmate. “She said, ‘If you slept with this girl, you’d better slap a condom on that pecker of yours.’” That sounds like an awfully awkward convo. Click on through to hear more stories about celebs losing it … their v-card, that is. [Celebitchy]
There was once a time when a woman’s pregnant belly was shrouded in over-sized fabric, concealed from the world. Nowadays, pregnancy is a good excuse to rock even tighter clothes to emphasize the growing waistline (“That’s not a burrito, that’s a baby!”) or, if you’re famous, to chuck the cover-ups entirely and show off your swelling belly on the cover of a magazine. Jessica Simpson did just this for this month’s issue of ELLE. Oh, and by the way, it’s a GIRL! Jessica’s hardly the first to strike a preggo cover pose. We can thank Demi Moore for this particular pose. Vanity Fair 1991 anyone? Click through to see some other sexy stars who’ve graced magazine covers while with child. [People]
