Now that we’re in the winter home stretch, we’re looking for more creative ways to stay warm. After all, there’s only so many weeks and months of a drab winter coat one can take. As it warms up ever so slightly, may we suggest a capelet? Whimsical and slightly romantic, the capelet is one of those versatile numbers that can be worn as both outerwear and as a creative additional layer. As with pretty much everything, the key to wearing a capelet and not looking like a Twilight sparklevamp extra is proportion, so find one that works with your torso length, and pair with items that lengthen the body.

“In light of this video, and as an individual who is proud to be Jewish, I will not be associated with Mr. Galliano in any way.

Last night, I watched all 120 minutes of “The Bachelor,” rather than just fast-forwarding through the repetitive parts, so I could find out first hand who would be appearing on season 12 of “Dancing with the Stars.” And I gotta say, I am a little underwhelmed with the lineup. The guys who will lacing up their dancing shoes: Sugar Ray Leonard, the originl “Karate Kid,” Ralph Macchio, wrestler Chris Jericho, rapper Romeo, wide receiver Hines Ward, and “Loveline” co-host (aka Adam Corolla replacement) Mike Catherwood. For the women, we’ve got: Kirstie Alley, Wendy Williams, Kendra Wilkinson, Disney star Chelsea Kane, and former model Petra Nemcova. Notice how many of the folks require descriptors. Mike Catherwood and Chelsea Kane, here’s looking at you. Keep reading »

Even though it’s a word that conjures up images of high school and “Do you like me? Check yes or no” letters, each time I say it, the word makes me feel just a little bit giddy.
I’ve been dating The Young One for six blissful weeks. Keep reading »
Cheese puff celebs like Justin Bieber introduce their own nail polish lines. But Butter London has named their own limited edition nail polish for Kate Middleton, a shimmery purple called No More Waity Katie (her nickname in the press). Supposedly, No More Waity Katie is greige — grey and beige — but that color sure looks like purple to me! I’d like to get my fingers on this polish — and this polish on my fingers — but, hey, Butter, don’t you think $14 is a bit stiff? Not all of us are marrying into royalty, you know.
