Mirror, Mirror: You ARE Pretty Enough To Find Love

The other day, a girl emailed me:
“I’m worried that I’m not pretty enough to get a guy. I’m single, and want a serious relationship, but sometimes I think I can’t find one because I’m not prettier.”
I wanted to exclaim, “That’s ridiculous!” But instead I thought, Well, of course you’re worried.

Mirror, Mirror: On Looking Jewish

I liked being Jewish. I just hated my face. I wanted desperately to like my face better. I’d spent too many years laughing with my hand over my nose because I thought it looked even bigger when my face was happy. Stupid, right? It’s amazing, in retrospect, the things we are tormented by.

Mirror, Mirror: What Does It Take For You To Believe You’re Beautiful?

We were laying on the couch in the darkness, the new Sofia Coppola movie flickering on the TV screen. Even in my lightest pajamas with the AC blaring, my skin soaked with sweat. I’d just taken a cool-off shower, which washed off all my carefully applied makeup from dinner. My wet hair hung around my…

Mirror, Mirror: The Price Of Looking Good

Most conspiracy theories make me giggle. I’m a pretty open-minded gal, but the notion that the moon landing was faked strikes me as downright bizarre. However, I do believe that most major cosmetics and personal care products companies actively conspire against women. These corporations strive to manufacture discontent among women to convince them to buy…

Well Played: Lily Collins’ Paris Premiere

So what if her film “Mirror Mirror” is getting so-so reviews and is being demolished by “The Hunger Games” at the box office? Lily Collins is like, “I’m just going to rock out the Paris premiere of my Snow White movie in this gorgeous Zac Posen floral gown like it don’t even matter.” That’s the…

Her 10 Best Looks: Lily Collins

Lily Collins is the star of the new fairy tale-inspired movie “Mirror Mirror.” She’s also the daughter of adult-contempo singer Phil Collins, but thankfully didn’t get his looks. Instead, she’s got a total Audrey Hepburn vibe, working the red carpet in a variety of gorgeous designer looks. Lily seems to love Dolce & Gabbana and…

Mirror, Mirror: A Lament From A Size Zero On The Ever-Changing Body “Ideal”

I spent my teens and early 20s wishing for a bigger, rounder, fuller body. In fact, I did more than wish. I padded my bra with two rolled-up washcloths, I wore two pairs of long underwear beneath my jeans, and I stuffed myself with a pint of ice cream every night. Every night.

Hot Links: “Mirror, Mirror” Looks Like The Inferior Snow White Movie

I’m gonna be honest. Based on the just-released trailer, “Mirror, Mirror” — i.e. the other Snow White movie — looks crappy. I mean, it looks more campy than “Snow White & The Huntsman,” at least, but also, what is with Julia Roberts’ accent? One second she’s British, the next she sounds like she’s from Florida.
