This past weekend, celebrities gathered to honor regular folks who have made a difference in their local communities. The CNN Heroes Awards is an annual celebration of activists and advocates who’ve made a difference, and tons of famous faces turned out to acknowledge the award recipients, including Miley Cyrus, Sophia Vergara and Emma Roberts. But doing good and looking good don’t necessarily always go together. Click through to see whose style was heroic, and whose style could use a little help.

Hey, did you watch “Dexter” on last night? Well, I won’t give anything away about the search for the Doomsday Killer or Colin Hanks’ constipated acting technique, but consider this a SPOILER ALERT about an out-of-nowhere possible subplot for the series. On last night’s episode, Debra Morgan’s therapist — who I was kind of hoping might end up igniting some latent lesbian fantasies for our favorite foul-mouthed Lieutenant — suggests that Deb is hot for Dexter. Dexter, of course, is Deb’s brother, though they are not related by blood. While initially pissed off by the suggestion, she starts to, well, entertain the thought that her shrink may be right. Seriously … is “Dexter” really going to go there?! Keep reading »
The season of holiday parties is upon us. What better time to ditch the predictable LBD and highlight your curves with a fabulous sequin dress? We found seven sparkling show-stoppers available in plus sizes. Just add black tights, red lipstick, and high heels to complete the look!
Do you have a friend who’s always covered in cat hair and smells vaguely of Fresh Step? It doesn’t matter if she’s young or old; you can be a crazy cat lady at any age. There’s a 90 percent chance that I myself am, or am on my way to becoming, this girl. As anyone who loves a cat will know, they’re all kinds of lovely, but you don’t even have to own one to be a cat lady at heart. Other symptoms include Google Images searches for “kittens snuggling” and loving the Samuel L. Jackson-narrated African Cats. Keep reading »
Picking the perfect holiday party dress is important. Not just any flouncy dress will do. You’re going to want something that’s at least marginally festive, sexy, but also not too holiday-specific so that you can wear it again someday. The 10 gorgeous dresses we’ve chosen hopefully fall under all those criteria, and will have the lads clamoring to get you under the misteltoe.
We came across these photos of teen girls from the 1960s and fell in love. We thought you might also appreciate a glimpse into what hippie teens wore around high school campuses back in the day. I’m really wishing I had a pair of corduroy bells right about now…
We all know, or are, an aspiring fashionista. Even if you don’t, it’s easy to pick her out. She’s either decked out all avant-garde, or keeping it badass and chic in head-to-toe black. The fashion-y girl is everywhere, be she stomping up and down your block or in your house, in your bedroom, in your bed, wearing your clothes!!! (that’s you). A girl can be fashion-savvy on any budget, but we all know how rough it can be flipping through the pages of our glossies and wondering aloud, “Why can’t that be me?” Luckily, the beauty of a true fashionista is that she doesn’t discriminate. H&M or D&G, it makes no difference so long as it’s cute. Keep reading »
Thursday night, Sarah Jessica Parker, Courtney Love and a slew of other celebs turned out to fete legendary designer Valentino. They were also there to support the opening of his new virtual museum, the Valentino Garavani Virtual Museum, an online catalog of the designer’s many collections, available to anyone — to view, at least. This being high fashion, the clothes themselves are still prohibitively expensive, but last night’s turnout proved that just because you can buy something doesn’t mean you necessarily have the style chops to pull it off. See who succeeded, and who failed miserably, when it came to honoring Valentino’s divine talents.
Maybe it has something to do with it being Friday, but we were feeling silly today. Jessica got chicken for lunch and we found it hilarious that she was given a single plastic glove to wear while eating it. She didn’t use it, so we decided to incorporate the glove — and a chicken drumstick — into today’s “What Are We Wearing.” I hope you enjoy our stupidity. And our outfits.
I grew up with three — count ‘em, three! — awesomely nerdy brothers. In high school, our house was the go-to spot for LAN parties, which involved large groups of teenage boys lugging their desktop computers into our basement to play Medal Of Honor all night, taking breaks to put household items in the George Foreman grill and see who could eat the most pickles without throwing up. Good times. In case you’re wondering what to get your own nerdy sibling (obviously this list is equally applicable to nerdy sisters and nerds with whom blood is not shared), I asked my 16-year-old brother to put together his ultimate wishlist.
