Having a “tramp stamp” doesn’t make you a tramp at all, it makes you a person who made a bad decision at some point in your high school/college years. (Not to imply all lower back tattoos are bad decisions. Just, um, a lot of them.) I should know. I have one. My Chinese symbol for the word “Angel” was acquired two months before my 18th birthday at a hole-in-the-wall tat shop on Bleeker Street. I was a Freshman at NYU and I mostly got the regrettable tattoo because I was pumped that they didn’t card me. I know, really solid reason to get inked for life. Nowadays, my stamp makes me cringe, but at least it’s well hidden … most of the time. Ben Affleck probably feels similarly sheepish after he accidentally revealed his tramp stamp while getting his daughter out of the car. It’s a dolphin, which he got to cover up the name of a high school girlfriend. Geez, I don’t know which is more embarrassing. I feel for him. Click on through to see more celebs with tramp stamps.

“In this [modeling] world, I found, many people were hungry too, but for different reasons. They wanted their bodies to look a certain way, whether their bodies were meant to or not. They chose not to eat. Today, I live in the U.S., where restaurants serve huge portions on even huger platters, and people are tempted to eat too much … I always ask for a doggie bag, to bring the leftovers home. My ex-boyfriend suggested more than once that I cut this out, as he found it embarrassing. (Perhaps that’s why he is no longer my boyfriend.)”

Move over, Scarlett! Dolce & Gabbana: The Makeup has selected Felicity Jones as the new face of their upcoming Kohl Collection, to debut the first day of the new year. The designers chose Jones to play the “aristocratic sauvage girl” that inspired the line, which is comprised of five new shades of kohl eyeliner and an eye palette — and who wears eyeliner these days better than the gorgeous Brit? If you’ve never heard of Felicity, you may remember her as the Autumn/Winter 2011 face of Burberry Prorsum. She’s currently starring on the silver screen in Like Crazy, which I haven’t seen because I think it would make me cry.

Here’s 10 things you should know about this prospective It-girl.
