The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Is Ridiculous, As Usual

Beauty Cues: Kate Upton’s Soft Grey Shadow And Mauve Lips

As You Can See, We’re All Made Of Stars

When astrophysicist Carl Sagan said, "We're made of star stuff," he was speaking about the fact that human beings are quite literally composed of elements that were forged within the cores of stars that went supernova.
