5 Ways To Get Gorgeous With Olive Oil

I used to work with this super elegant, gorgeous, older woman stylist who happened to be Italian, and during the wee hours of one particularly long shoot, I asked her what was the secret to her native countrywomens’ longevity. She didn’t hesitate: “Olive oil,” she replied. One of the greatest beauty icons of all time, Sophia Loren, concurs. She attributes her stunning 75-year-old good looks to “a love of life, spaghetti, and the odd bath in virgin olive oil.” [Celebrity Health & Fitness]

Ingesting the stuff is one thing–it’s loaded with healthy monounsaturated fatty acids and antioxidants. But there are plenty of more superficial benefits as well. Here’s how to work a bit of olive oil into your beauty regimen. Keep reading »

Is That Your Dress I Smell?

The world just can’t get enough high-tech fashion. From the LED dress to this light-up Dandelion number, geeks all over are putting their spin on style. Next up is a dress that claims to feel your emotions. Jenny Tillotson, a British artist and designer, created the dress which comes with its very own circulatory system. In actuality, it is a bit creepy, but the idea sounds pretty cool. The dress senses inner emotions and will emit a fragrance based on a feeling. So if you’re sick, the scent will be eucalyptus, and if you’re lusting after someone, it’ll be pheromones, creating your own smell bubble around you. We’re not quite sold on its wearability though. Thoughts? [DVICE] Keep reading »

The Inspiration Board: “An Education”

“An Education” actress Carey Mulligan may have been robbed of a Golden Globe this weekend, but seeing her on the red carpet reminded us of just how award-worthy her style was in the movie. Though the film is no longer a new release, we’d be remiss if we didn’t own to up to being a bit inspired by her school girl to worldly young woman transformation. Keep reading »

The Scary Side Of Skin Lightening Creams Isn’t Just Psychological

Skin-lightening creams might be controversial for their implications on race and beauty, but they’re also seriously dangerous, reports The New York Times. These creams are so strong that many users thin down their skin to a point that it bruises to the touch, exposes capillaries, and causes acne. The culprit? Steroids. (Eek!)

Alexa Chung + Madewell: Do You Like Brands More If A Celeb Wears Them?

I thought I was above caring what labels celebrities wore. Since most of the clothes they’re seen in are way out of my price range, I tend to think, “Oh, that looks cute” or “Ugh, what was she thinking?” and move on. But when a star wears something from a store that I actually shop in, I feel differently — and it’s not always good.

One of my top five favorite places to shop, Madewell, just announced that it’s collaborating with one of my top five favorite stylish celebs, Alexa Chung, on a line of clothes that will hit stores this September. The collection will include “high-waisted pants and jeans, velvet dresses with Peter Pan collars, and a coat based on a vintage children’s one she found that originally came from Harrods,” according to Vogue.com.

Is It Ever Acceptable To Wear Sweatpants In Public?

Writer Sean Macaulay at the Daily Beast calls sweatpants “the universal wardrobe shorthand for sloth and lassitude” in “Our Sweatpants Nightmare.” He says the wearing of sweats in public is a result of young people’s lack of social responsibility and too-casual office dress codes. Well, this is basically how I feel about flannel pajama bottoms in public. Nothing conveys a lack of hygiene and laziness better than walking around in your PJs. While I can agree that sweatpants are inappropriate at the office, religious events, and most affairs, there are some places, I think, where it’s totally appropriate to wear a pair of sweats without looking as if you “gave up.” Read the guidelines for wearing sweats after the jump.

The Catorialist: Kitties Got Mad Street Style

It was only a matter of time! As you may have guessed, The Catorialist is a street style blog … all about cats (and a parody of The Sartorialist, obviously). Pretty photos of kitties with Sartorialist-inspired captions like, “On the street … Full tortoise, Chinatown, LA,” “The model … Bowery, NYC” and “On the street … Milan.” Truly hilarious, not to mention a nice little wake-up call for those of us who get a tad too serious about fashion, you must check it out. Like, now. [The Catorialist] Keep reading »

Brain Teaser For The Style Obsessed

Perusing street style websites for hours is one of our slightly embarrassing guilty pleasures. Sure, we pick up style tips and identify missteps, but sometimes we can’t help but wonder whether we’re wasting too much time. With the Street Style Memory Game, though, we don’t have to choose between our sartorial hunting habit and being productive. This game provides fashion enrichment yet also makes the brain work as you try to match the top halves of the subjects with the rest of their outfit. You’ll definitely want to pick this one up when it’s released in March. [about $19.56, BIS Publishers] Keep reading »

Is Hollywood Embracing Curves?

Only a few short months ago, we were talking about Hollywood boobs. Or, more accurately, the lack thereof, when we noticed that more and more, celebs were joining the itty-bitty titty committee. After the Golden Globes, however, some see the trend reversing. Writes one New York Times blogger who saw an emergence of curves on the whole:

“Maybe it’s just me, but I could have sworn that some of the ladies who showed up at the Golden Globes on Sunday had put on a little weight. It’s almost criminal to name names, because the very actresses whose body-mass indexes have been the subject of endless tabloid speculation are the very ones now sporting sexier curves. You could definitely see the difference if you concentrated solely on the upper arms … ”
