Beauty Style Stealer: Nicole Richie’s Shimmery Lids

I hated — hated! — Nicole Richie in her "Simple Life" days. I mean, didn't you? She was bratty, annoying, and entitled with crusty hair extensions and a tiny dog, whining and generally acting despicable alongside her equally (if not more) horrible cohort, Paris Hilton. That's why I love Nicole all the more now: she…

I assume I speak for many of us when I say that I couldn't really care less about "American Reunion," but I am very interested in Mena Suvari. She's been so awesome for so long — she was subversive in Hollywood before being subversive in Hollywood was cooler than being cool in Hollywood. Does that…

Joey Shows Regular Guys How to Look Like Ryan Gosling

Sorry Amelia, but Joey might actually be better than Ryan Gosling. For one, he's a regular guy that's not off running around with Eva Mendes. And two, he's really, really, really funny -- even if he does have the "effeminate jaw line of Hilary Duff." Either way, this is a video you --…

How To Style A Bouffant With Short Hair

"Mad Men" has made me obsessed with the vintage bouffant hairstyle. While it looks like you need a lot of hair to achieve the super huge look, it's actually not so much about the length of your hair as it is the volume, and how to create it. If you have chin-length hair…
