This summer, I’m all about the studs. And not just the shirtless ones at the beach (although I would also like to get my hands on some of them too.) For my beauty expert buddies at Lifebooker, I bedazzled some series nail hardware. Check out editor Anna’s done up digits— hope she’s not going to try to get through an airport metal detector with these.
Here’s how you can have this hawt #GetNailedWithLB look! Paint your nails as per usual. Then bust out your nail art striper and draw lines across your nails where you want to stud.
To apply the studs you will need an orange stick, a base coat, a nail art sealer or bonder top coat and some studs you can find at a beauty supply store. First, coat your nail with your nail art sealer or bonder topcoat. Then, tap the tip of your orange stick into the basecoat brush to pick up a bit of polish. Next, tap your stick onto the stud to lift it up and place it down on the nail. Coat your nail again with the nail art sealer or bonder and boom! Your nails are more metal than Ozzy. Check out some more studded nail art styles above!
It’s baby season. I mean, fruit season. I mean, I didn’t realize there were so many fruit babies being born out there. The word is that people bring fruit babies to baby showers. But isn’t that kind of creepy to eat a baby? Oh well, who am I to judge? These babies are making me hungry. Click on for more adorable and delicious fruit babies. Just like real babies, no two are the same.
Are you sick of the Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes divorce scandal yet? I am nowhere near close to being bored of the topic. Oh, if they were any other Hollywood couple, I would be snoring by now, but given their close ties to the upper echelons of the Church of Scientology (specifically Tom’s BFF status with leader David Miscavige, who was best man at the couple’s wedding), this split has the potential to blow the lid off a lot of highly shady shit.
Anyway, yesterday was Tom’s 50th birthday and instead of spending it with his soon-to-be-ex wife, the actor flew to LA to be with his older children (adopted when he and Nicole Kidman were married) instead. Katie, meanwhile, was all smiles when she took little Suri out for ice cream in, ACK, my neighborhood yesterday evening. They were accompanied by friends and Katie looks happier in these photos than she has in any other paparazzi shots in months. Personally, I think she is a total badass.

It’s Fall/Winter 2012 Couture Week in Paris, my favorite series of collections. Couture Week, like other fashion weeks, happens twice a year, and is when designers break out the big guns — garments can cost in the tens of thousands of dollars. Couture collectors are willing to pony up the big bucks because couture collections are all handmade. We’ve already shown you the new collection from Raf Simons over at Dior, but here are the new looks from Giambattista Valli, Versace, Armani and Chanel. Check back here often for more amazing couture looks.
Humans aren’t the only species to get into the holiday spirit. Check out these animals — festooned with ridiculous hats and outfits — doing their best to get into the 4th of July festivities.
Is it already that time again? I always look forward to the big fashion weeks, even though the shows run counter to the current season — it’s sweltering outside, but the promise of fall/winter fashion still thrills me. Sorry, but I’m a sweater-and-boots kind of girl… not that there’s any sweaters to be found during haute couture week. The shows in Paris invite not only the most impressively ostentatious of what fashion has to offer, but also an A-list crowd just as show-stopping as the clothes themselves. Well, almost. Click through to check out my picks for the best-dressed from the front row so far, and don’t be surprised if you happen to see these ladies in the dresses off the runway come fall…
