The Age-Old Question: Blonde Or Brunette?

Supermodel Lara Stone has made a big splash for her curvy figure, and her appeal is all wrapped up in that whole Brigitte Bardot blonde bombshell thing. (That “thing” never gets old, now does it?) That’s why it’s sort of surprising that she’s gone a more demure brunette for her second big French Vogue cover. Personally, I have a bit of a girl crush, so I’ll take Lara whether it’s blonde, brown or blue. Which do you prefer? Keep reading »

Popcorn Will Save Your Life

Scientists recently found that snack foods and many whole grain breakfast cereals contain surprisingly large amounts of antioxidant substances called polyphenols, which are a large part of why fruits, veggies, and other foods have been called out for potentially reducing the risk of some diseases. Because breakfast cereals, pasta, crackers, and salty snacks account for 66 percent of whole grain intake in the the standard American’s diet, this is a good thing — at least you aren’t eating those Frosted Mini-Wheats for nothing! The study found popcorn to be a standout snack food, as it had the highest level of antioxidants in the study. Since the usual microwaved kind brings with it artificial butters and whatnot, find out how to make air-popped popcorn without any special contraptions after the jump. Keep reading »

Clips From “The September Issue”: Sienna Miller Didn’t Look Good In A Wig

By the time “The September Issue” comes to New York Aug. 28, the entire documentary will be available in bits and pieces on the internet. Two new clips have just been released: one (above) with an editor freaking out about Sienna Miller’s wig not working for the cover shoot, and another (after the jump) of creative director Grace Coddington dressing a model for a photo shoot and talking about how she is the last stylist to buckle models’ shoes.

While some have wondered whether this Vogue documentary will make editor-in-chief Anna Wintour look bad, I worry about how Sienna Miller will deal with the film. Normally, celebrities don’t know exactly what goes into making them look good enough for glossy magazine pages, but the doc shows photographers, hairstylists, and editors focusing on her flaws. It’s no fun having people call you “teeth-y” and talk about your fillings. [via Racked] Keep reading »

Jon Gosselin And Other Celebs Who Go To Great Lengths For A Little Action

When I was in high school I did all kinds of crazy things so I could see my boyfriend without my parents knowing. But now I go in and out the front door like a regular, stable adult. Apparently, Jon Gosselin still hasn’t gotten to that stage. In an interview with Life And Style, Jon’s most recent ex, Kate Major, said, “Jon said he couldn’t be seen having a girlfriend, so he told me to drive to a neighbor’s house after midnight, when the kids were asleep. He said he’d pick me up on his four-wheeler, take me to his house and drop me off again at 6 a.m.” The couple’s first time happened in a New Jersey hotel room, which Kate (shocker) paid for.

It’s okay, Jon, you aren’t the only sleazebag celeb who’s pulled stunts like this. Keep reading »

Quick Pic: Paper Heart Dress

While this sweet dress looks like it’s made of hundreds of paper hearts, it’s actually vegan leather (and um, kind of gives us a heart attack at $2,180). [Not Just A Label via Trendhunter] Keep reading »

“Twilight” Sells Out More Than We Thought Possible

It’s official: “Twilight” is the sell-out of the century. In fact, it could even be the sell-out of the millennium. I liked the books, but then there was the movie which spawned obnoxious Robert Pattinson fangirls and incessant Kristen Stewart gossip. This was followed by fugly “Twilight” gear and a weekly TV show dedicated to the making of “New Moon.” Just when I thought it couldn’t get any worse, Summit and Creation Entertainment have teamed up to produce “Twlight” fan conventions. These ridic things are coming to a bunch of major U.S. cities, complete with panel discussions, parties, musical performances, screenings, competitions, auctions, and, of course, merchandising opportunities. Oh yeah, and celebs will show up for pics and autographs. The details are fuzzy but check out my predictions, after the jump. [NY Times] Keep reading »

I Wanna Dress Like: Lisa Turtle, Bayside High’s Style Maven

lark voorhies plastic surgery 081809 g1 jpg
Lark Voorhies, who played Lisa Turtle on “Saved by the Bell,” appears to have done some cosmetic surgery to her face after hearing news of a possible reunion movie. The rumored surgery must have been recent, though, because she looked like a more mature version of her “old self” on the cover of People earlier this month. A Florida-based plastic surgeon told Star magazine that it appears Lark had an eye lift and a lot of Botox. While I’ll admit she does look a helluva lot different, I’m not convinced surgery did all the damage — Lark also looks like a ghostly makeup casualty.

I’ve chosen to remember Lark’s glory days when she was playing style icon Lisa Turtle. You know you envied her wardrobe as a kid, but now as an adult you can dress exactly like her, and you don’t even need filthy rich parents.

    Oprah hearts Jay-Z. Last night on her bestie Gayle King’s radio show, she talked about meeting the husband o’ Beyonce. “He was so charming and delightful—and he smelled so good,” she said. “It’s the kind of thing where you hug a guy and the scent is sort of buried in them. When we went to the second location I could still smell him on me it was like, ‘Oh my, this is wonderful!” [People]

    So how do other celebs smell? Read on.
