Most of us at some point in out life have had bangs. Some people boast them as their signature hairstyle, while others of us have just dabbled. A few months ago Ashley got bangs a la Rashida Jones, and a few weeks ago FLOTUS Michelle Obama got them a la midlife crisis.
Bangs can be awesome, flattering, and convenient. But growing them out sucks. A lot. More
Michelle Williams is a great actress, and part of being a great actress is being able to disappear into a role and not just look like “celebrity X” up there on the screen. For their Spring/Summer ’13 issue, the always artistic AnOther Magazine took advantage of that fact and styled Ms. Williams, who is interviewed within about playing Glinda the Good Witch in Oz the Great and Powerful, in eight very different looks, from club kid to retro glamour puss to…some sort of farmer? As expected, she looks great in all of them. (Especially the farmer one.) More
As Ashley mentioned in her BAFTA’s red carpet post earlier, and featured in that glorious photo at the end, Helen Mirren has dyed her hair pink. The pale bubblegum shade might not work on everybody, but it certainly suits her better than anyone I’ve ever seen attempt it. More
Hey bitches, let’s talk about the cold! This week’s Upfront With Mari is all about winter! More
I try to avoid things that involve Lauren Conrad. Unless, of course, it’s that episode of Family Guy where she plays herself and Brian gives her worms. More
You know how it’s really, really annoying that no matter what haircut you decide to get, the price is nearly always higher for women than men? More
If you’re anything like me, all this talk about the Les Mis movie, with its glancing attentions to the Paris Uprising of 1832, has reignited your long-dormant interest in French military history (I assume you’re already all talked out on Anne Hathaway’s weight loss and Russell Crowe’s singing voice). Between 1789 and 1905 the French tried to have a revolution at least once a year, to keep things fresh. Here are a few of the best ones. More
At a website that is ostensibly dedicated to covering beauty and fashion, people send you a lot of stuff they’d like you to write about. A lot of it is terrible, or not something you can really use (hundreds of anti-aging creams are building up in my closet. I plan to apply them all simultaneously on my 30th birthday. That party is going to be great). However, some things are absolutely fantastic, and they deserve a shout-out. This is that. You should buy these fashion and beauty related products because they are great. More
The hotly anticipated Kate Upton British Vogue cover story is here! You know, the one EIC Alexandra Shulman felt the need to introduce by reminding us Kate is totally not fat? Thankfully, the photos themselves show no such backhanded qualities, letting Kate’s beauty do the work in simple, form-fitting (but not overly obvious) outfits. Kate also manages to negotiate those annoyingly repetitive questions about her body with grace. Let’s take a look. More
What with all this talk of Hollywood diets and the pressure to look thin in order to look good, it’s easy to forget that Anne Hathaway was actually on that starvation diet so she would look bad while playing an impoverished prostitute in Les Miserables. More
This is probably the most un-James Bond you will ever see Daniel Craig looking. More
Sarah Palin’s hair is sad that Barack Obama won. More
This was, of course, before he was a silver fox. More
Do you ever get a blow-out in the morning and then realize that you have to skip your work-out so as not to destroy it? Does it lead into a glorious spiral of skipping work-outs forever, and just lying on the couch eating thin-mint cookies like some sort of 19th century harem lady? That sounds fabulous. I admire that.
However, if you actually feel inconvenienced that you have to skip that work-out, well, I have solved that problem for you! Or rather Gregory Patterson, a stylist at Blow (a New York blow dry bar) has that problem solved. Here are his tips for keeping your blow-out intact: More
