Style 911: “I Look Super Young. How Can I Dress More Grown Up?”

style911 stamp 111610 m jpg
The other day, Jessica IM’d me really upset. A manicurist had asked her if she was a student — at 27, no she was not! Jessica has a very young looking face — I know, boo f**king hoo — and is often told she looks really young for her age. But she also knows the way she dresses contributes to people assuming she’s younger than she is. Jess will be the first to admit that she loves girly touches like bows and polka dots, and color combinations — like black, red, and white — that can look costume-y. To put it into pop culture terms, sometimes Jessica dresses like she’s channeling Blair Waldorf from “Gossip Girl”; cute, but way to youthful for a woman Jessica’s age.

Jessica asked me for my help — how could she adjust her style so that she looked more mature? I was happy to take on the challenge and vowed to put together a bunch of outfits using many of the same pieces, from stores and sites I know Jessica likes; I also made sure to pick out items that were a nod to Jessica’s tastes (bows, red, etc.), but had a more grown-up vibe. Keep clicking to see six outfits — two for work, two for the weekend, and two date night looks. Let’s hope this doesn’t turn Jessica against me.

Ashton Kutcher Dreamed Of Dating Jennifer Aniston

“I bet a high school buddy $1,000 that one day I would go on a date with Jennifer Aniston. … I was 17 years old and she was on my screensaver. … Five years later I actually met her and I asked Brad Pitt’s permission to ask his wife out on a date. He was so cool and said ‘You go for it,’ so I asked her and she turned me down. Now we’re friends so it might still happen, but now I have to ask Demi’s permission and I just don’t know how to broach that with the wife. But I do want to win the bet.”

Ashton Kutcher reveals to Graham Norton of the BBC that his dream woman back in the day wasn’t Demi Moore, but Jennifer Aniston. For some reason, I can just picture young Ashton watching “Friends” and drooling at the Rachel scenes. [NY Daily News] Keep reading »

12 Stars Who’ve Done “Hollywood Homely”

The movie “Hesher” won’t be out until April 15, but we are excited about it for many reasons. (A) Because in it, Joseph Gordon-Levitt takes a Tyler Durden-ish turn as a long haired, often-shirtless wild man who befriends a kid who has lost his mom. (B) Because we’ll get to see Rainn Wilson play serious as the dad of said kid, who is uber-depressed after his wife’s death. And (C) because Natalie Portman will grace us with her presence once again this spring. However, Natalie isn’t looking as totally gorgeous as she normally does. In fact, it looks like she’s come down with a case of “Hollywood Homely.”

What exactly does that mean? Find out after the jump.
