It’s a big, big week for season finales, folks. First, see the toodle-oo to cycle 13 of “America’s Next Top Model,” i.e., the shorty season. Next, find out who’s in and who’s out with the conclusion of “Project Runway.” And finally, get ready for the culmination of the “Seinfeld” reunion on “Curb Your Enthusiasm.” But don’t be sad. You know what they say … every new beginning comes from another beginning’s end. Keep reading »
“As a teen, I was both anorexic and bulimic. I was a young woman in the public eye, on the receiving end of a lot of attention, and I was trying to protect myself from men who were using their power in ways I was too young to know how to handle … Disappointment, sadness and pain hit me hard, and I tried to numb those feelings through my relationship with food. For four to six months at a time, I would barely eat. I lived on a diet of Melba toast, carrots, and black coffee. I began recovering at 18, when a sweet friend confronted me … I hope my effort shows any woman battling an eating disorder or poor body image that she’s not alone — support is out there.”

I go to two separate hairdressers for my cut and color, yet often I like to schedule both appointments within a few days of each other to take care of my hair as quick as I can. Perhaps you also have stylists you stay loyal to, or you’re pressed for time and need to make two different visits—which do you do first, the cut or the color? Keep reading »
Wowwwww. Check out this amazing
“Galaxy” gown created by CuteCircuit design duo Francesca Rosella and Ryan Genz. Illuminated by 24,000 tiny, lightweight LED lights, the dress is totally wearable and powered by iPod batteries. The circuits and Swarovski crystals are layered on silk “so the LED fabric can move like normal fabric with lightness and fluidity,” the designers report. And it’s eco-friendly, using as much electricity as two household light bulbs. Keep reading »
Wouldn’t it be nice if all the good men in the world had an invisible stamp on their hand, and all you had to do to find one was shine a black light on it? But, uh, what constitutes a “good man” anyway? Tom Matlack of The Huffington Post is attempting to answer that question with The Good Men Project: Real Stories from the Front Lines of Modern Manhood, a collection of first-person stories that he’s turned into a book and documentary about what it means to be a man in America today. Encompassing stories from Pulitzer winners to ex-cons, and pro Football Hall of Famers to just regular Joes, the authors share their defining challenges, losses and triumphs through honest and simple truths.

Fashion editors swooned over the lingerie trend on the runways. I’ll admit, I loved it too. A hint of sexiness is a great look — one which certain girls can pull off. But what I’ve recently learned is that when that particular trend made its way into reality, it simply doesn’t work. Chloe Sevigny just showed off her bra-as-a-top outfit at the Prada party in Los Angeles, and I’m kind of regretting my original love for the lingerie look. Sure, she’s a celeb and it’s a red carpet affair, but to me, and I’m sure most of the party-goers, it just looks like she walked out of the house in the middle of getting dressed. Am I the only one who thinks it looks just like she forgot to put on a shirt? It’s like a bad dream when you realize you’re not fully clothed, but this is reality. Yikes! Keep reading »
We are loving skeleton key jewelry right now, and this vintage key (now cast in silver) was for sale at a flea market before Ball and Chain jewelers rescued it. The authenticity is a plus with so many jewelers picking up on this trend, and the oxidized chain is a dark charcoal grey; a nice contrast to the key’s silver sheen. [$35, Ball and Chain]

Love Julianne Moore. Don’t love Julianne’s choice of dress color. She looks a bit sickly, no? When it comes to picking out a dress or blouse, I swear people don’t bother to think about their skin tone. It’s funny because with anything makeup-related the first question is: “Will this work with my skin tone?” Um, hello, your top has to make just as much skin color sense as your shade of red lipstick!
Like Ms. Moore, I’m a pale person. Granted, I don’t have skin as pretty as hers, but I take serious pains to make sure I do my pale (and sometimes ghostly white) skin every possible favor. And that means never wearing this type of neutral, blah color—I let the more olive-skinned lady folk rock it, the women who always look great in this nude hue. Me, I buy loads of jewel-toned tops and, if I really want a nude or a neutral, I’ll wear it on my bottom half, so it doesn’t suck all the color out of my face and make me look green. What about you — do you consider skin tone when shopping or putting on your clothes every morning? Do you have a go-to color that always makes your skin look great? Keep reading »
