While most of the major networks are waiting until late September to roll out their big gun shows, this week the CW is continuing their mission to permanently invade your brain by whipping out premiere after premiere. In addition to the launch of “The Beautiful Life” and the season three re-boot of “Gossip Girl,” they’ve already got us hooked on “Melrose Place” and “The Vampire Diaries.” Can’t they give us one night with out a trashtastically amazing show? Oh, but there’s some other good stuff out there this week, too. “Parks and Recreation” is back, and we think this season it will actually get funny. Joel McHale of “The Soup” finally gets his own series. And HBO has a new one for you starring (swoon) Jason Schwartzman.

It was eyeliner hysteria last night on the MTV VMAs red carpet—I want to say 98 percent of the starlets that showed up (Cassie, Nicky Hilton, Pink, J.Lo, etc.), had some version of a heavily lined and super defined eye. Tres chic, sure—but only one pretty lady got the look really right: Lauren Conrad. Check her out above—could her eyes be anymore gorgeous, huge and perfect? There’s one big reason why her version of lined eyes really stood out from the pack, and it’s something you don’t need to hire a makeup artist to pull off yourself. Get the trick we all could use—and check out the one VMA attendee that should have heeded our advice…after the jump! Keep reading »
OK, well not exactly. But a bevy of Housewives did show up to the Jill Stuart runway show today, along with Kim Kardashian, Kelly Rowland (who touched up Kim’s makeup), Rachel Bilson and “Top Chef” judge Gail Simmons. Sheree Whitfield sat directly across from Caroline and Dina Manzo, so it was a Jersey/Atlanta face-off in the front row. Keep reading »
“Ellen and I are as just silly, fun girls that love each other and people can make out of it what they will. There’s nothing there but fun girlie friendship and affection.”

CND, the makers of the awesome new Colour & Effects nail polish line, worked with just a handful of designers for New York Fashion Week, to create special layered combinations for each show. Since the colors aren’t straight from a bottle, they’re sort of like couture nail polish.
At both Jason Wu on Friday and Karen Walker on Saturday, the nails were done in muted metallics, which, at first, seemed like an oxymoron to me. Metallic that’s not in your face and bling-tastic? Yes, it exists. I spied a toned-down, brushed, silver shade backstage before Walker’s show — half of the models in the show had their nails done with one coat of Silver Chrome and one coat of Studio White, and the other half had the same but with two coats of Putty on top. The combos resulted in colors somewhere in between white and silver. Neutral but not boring.
At Michelle Obama’s favorite designer Jason Wu‘s show, half of the models had a matte bronze that was a result of painting a coat of Super Matte on top of one application of Copper Chrome, while the other half had Gold Pearl between the two layers, adding a little texture. Check it out, after the jump! Keep reading »
While Amelia, Erin and Catherine hobnobbed with celebs like Janelle Monae and Miss J on >Fashion’s Night Out, I swung by Sephora in Times Square for a mini-makeover by co-founder of Benefit cosmetics, Jane Ford. I thought she’d just swish some pink blush on my cheeks and call it a day, but Ford actually told me propensity for girly pink-or-peach makeup is misguided. Someone like me, with dark, dark brown hair and pale, pale ivory skin (think: Christina Ricci’s coloring) should be wearing brown blush and brown lipstick. Yes, brown. Keep reading »
Amelia: Erin, do you think cowboy hats will ever come back into fashion?
Erin: Only if Carine Roitfeld [editor in chief of French Vogue] wears one.
Amelia: Oh dear.

This feather seems to be the perfect blend of Ed’s real-life rocker image and his dandy “Gossip Girl” alter ego, Chuck Bass. See the second, somewhat NSFW tat, after the jump. Hint: “She’s A Pinup!” [via Oh No They Didn't!] Keep reading »
Plastic surgeons have reached a truly DIY medical breakthrough in Britain: cutting fat from a woman’s thighs and tummy and pasting it on her titties. Ladies who allow surgeons to play Mrs. Potato Head with their breasts can potentially shoot up three cup sizes. The “two-in-one op,” as it’s being called, will be widely available in Britain next year for around $13,000 and is currently being tested in the U.S.
It’s true that these so-called “natural breast enlargements” don’t involve the dodgy silicone used in most boob jobs, which has been known to harden over time and feel fake. But it’s still plastic surgery, which isn’t “natural” at all! Besides, how much would it suck if the layers of fat that the doctor redistributed from your thighs turned out to be the dreaded cellulite and it made your tits all wrinkly and pucker-y? Is that really worth a C-cup, ladies? [Times Of London] Keep reading »
