11 Celebrities Who Claim They Were Ugly Ducklings

Ugly Duckling Lessons
Life lessons from a former ugly duckling. Read More »

I think we would all agree that Salma Hayek is one of the most beautiful women alive. But according to her interview in the latest issue of Lucky, she wasn’t always a swan. I know, how is that even possible? She claims that when she was a young, struggling actress in LA she battled with bad acne and extra weight. “You want to talk about bad skin? I had acne. And this acne was so bad, it sent me into a severe, severe depression. Like I couldn’t leave the house. I’d wake up in the morning and lie there and touch my face before I got up, just to prepare myself to look in the mirror! … The next stage with that sort of depression is food: too little, or too much … I was fat and broken out, I couldn’t leave the house and I couldn’t pay the rent!” I’m sure she speaks the truth, but you wouldn’t know it by looking at her. I want to see the pictures. Click through to see which celebrities swear they were ugly ducklings once upon a time. [Lucky]

Kirsten Dunst Once Cut Her Hair Short For A Dude

“The last time I cut my hair short, my boyfriend at the time was like, ‘You look so much better with short hair.’ So I cut it off. I know, I know, so stupid! My girlfriend thinks he just didn’t want any guys to look at me. … I attract a difference kind of boy when my hair’s red. I get more quality men—like a more thoughtful, nerdy dude.”

Kirsten Dunst, who I absolutely loved in the Lars Von Trier film “Melancholia,” tells the January issue of Lucky how boys have influenced and reacted to her changing hair over the years. Hmm, I’ve had my hair a variety of colors but haven’t personally noticed a difference in the guys I’ve attracted. Though I do think I’ve had more luck attracting them period since my hair has been a more natural brown. My blonde period wasn’t very eventual, romance wise. What about you? Have you noticed a difference in the types of guys you attract depending on your hair color or cut? (And click on to see all the great photos of Kirsten in Lucky!) [Lucky Mag]

“I got so much scrutiny for putting on extra pounds, but I think that the decision not to make myself anorexic was actually great for branding. Because when you’re really, really skinny, not everybody can relate to you.”

Jessica Simpson, who announced she’s expecting her first child earlier this week, is on the cover of the December issue of Lucky and seems to spend a lot of time during the interview discussing her weight. Jessica tells the magazine that she likes the way she looks “now,” which the mag describes as “not the celebrity ideal” because she stopped spending “six hours a day on the Exercycle and going on a juice cleanse.” Of the change in her body, Simpson says she “didn’t cry about it too much,” in part, it seems, because of the positive response she received from real women who found her more relatable as a result.

Printed Pants Are Nothing To Be Frightened Of

Our friends over at Lucky might be braver than we are. They are really feeling the printed pants thing. Says Lucky’s Jenna Gottlieb: “This season’s crop of patterned trousers–while understandably intimidating–qualifies less as costume and more as refreshingly modern spring trend. And, surprisingly, these statement-making items are actually completely wearable.” Gottlieb’s got great taste, and she’s selected several cute, perfectly patterned pairs to try, including these pairs from Nic + Zoe (left), Asos (center), and Forever 21 (right).

I’ll Go Commando Before I’ll Wear $40 Cotton Underwear

I read (and by “read” I mean “look,” as there aren’t many words to begin with) Lucky religiously every month. For the most part, the clothes featured in the magazine are outside my price range (at least at full price), but I always get something out of the issue. I’ll discover a cool new beauty product or get ideas for styling a new outfit out of the clothes I already have. When I cracked open the February 2011 issue of the magazine (with Nicole Richie on the cover), I learned something truly shocking: Some people actually think it makes sense to spend $40 on a single pair of cotton brief underwear.

Will You Read “LuckyKids” Magazine?

I don’t pay attention to the ads in Women’s Wear Daily often, but today I noticed an ad seeking advertisers for LuckyKids magazine. Now, I love Lucky, the women’s magazine about shopping, as much as the next style geek seeking relatable fashion (and I even still own the very first issue of Lucky), but I can’t for the life of me understand why Condé Nast is going to publish LuckyKids.
