I’ve gotten plenty of pitches for products claiming to make you look younger and skinnier. But the latest one takes the cake; a new oral pill called Go Away Gray that claims to permanently halt and reverse the graying process. Can you believe?! Read More
This year’s Met Gala, fashion’s big night out, did not fail to reveal designer styles ranging from classy to even a little bit crazy. Themed “Punk: Chaos to Couture,” A-listers showed off their best interpretation of the style, some exceeding expectations and others missing the mark. One head-turning makeup look we couldn’t ignore was pulled straight from the spring runways (Donna Karen pictured above right). The usually demure Emily Blunt went bold wearing electric pink eyeshadow. NARS makeup artist Jenn Streicher broke convention and used the line’s Jardin des Plantes satin lip pencil on Emily’s eyes and topped it with Desire powder blush. We appreciate that Emily took a beauty risk, but we’re not so sure it paid off.
Sharing a sweatshirt or oversized t-shirt with your boyfriend or hubby is fun and all, but leggings? Ladies, hold onto your favorite pants substitute because meggings (leggings for men) are hitting the streets and runways as one of the biggest new trends of the season. Squeezed into by celebrities like Justin Bieber, Russell Brand, and Lenny Kravitz, meggings appear to be making their mark on the Hollywood set. But what about real guys giving tight pants a try?
Apparently labels like Urban Outfitters and American Apparel think they should, because both stores are offering the look this season. And these bottoms aren’t reserved just for adult men. Check out this version created for baby boys by designer Little Titans. I have to say, these little ones do look adorable in their leg-wear! Only time will tell whether this fashion statement is either a ‘do’ or a major ‘don’t’ but personally, unless you’re taking the stage as a ballet dancer, acting in a Shakespearian play, or under two years old, just say no to tights, guys.

We’ve answered the question before, “Are these products too good to be true?” Now it begs to be asked again with Wrangler’s new ‘Spa Jean,’ which claims to fight cellulite!
The denim brand’s new Spa line is designed with moisturizing ingredients like Olive Extract and Aloe Vera. Included in the collection is the much talked about Smooth Leg Jean that claims to fight cellulite with “caffeine, retinol and algae” packed right into the denim itself! This style was “clinically tested by the Institut Adriant in France, where after four weeks of wearing the jeans for eight hours a day, five days a week over six weeks, 69 per cent of the panel claimed that the appearance of their thighs had improved.” At $136 a pair, the style will be available on ASOS.com starting January 28. Truth be told, even if some cellulite lingers after wearing these jeans, if a little added moisturizer can make wiggling into my favorite pair of denim that much easier, I am not complaining.

Hair color is more than a physical attribute. I quickly realized this when I went platinum blonde. It was for a story I wrote for Marie Claire a few years back. I tested the cliches first hand. Now L’Oreal is getting to the bottom of hair color stereotypes, too. Do blondes really have more fun? Are brunettes brainy? Click here to take L’Oreal’s survey.
We’ve heard of hair transplants for bald spots…but for your brows? Yes, the latest advancements in hair transplantation are allowing doctors to use hair from the legs and nape of the neck to bush-up eyebrows. Whether they’re pin thin from aging or from being tweezer happy (pluck too much and the hairs will stop growing back), this procedure takes filling in brows to a new level. While I do encourage a full, hearty frame for your face, which has been emphasized from season to season on the runways, I’m not that gung-ho.
Would you consider this procedure?
If you’ve recently picked up a gossip magazine, signed onto Pinterest, or visited a college campus, you’re well aware of the “statement nail” polish trend that’s sweeping the ring fingers of women everywhere. Confused? Celebrtities and young girls alike have been painting their ring fingers a different color, texture, or pattern than the rest of their digits. In fact, it’s so common that just today my manicurist asked me what other color I wanted when I only handed her one bottle of polish. Crazy! It’s a fun, pretty way for girls and young women to get creative with lacquers, but we’re not sending the older women in our lives to join the party. We think it’s a fad that’ll fade quicker than we can say tacky. posted by Cody
Few films resonate deeply with me. Like Crazy did. It’s a pure story about raw, young love. There are no cheesy romantic comedy bits or action-packed car chases. It’s simply a simple movie with soul told through the eyes of two budding actors — Anton Yelchin and Felicty Jones, a British actress who I think is the next “it” girl. She’s just been named the new face of Dolce&Gabbana The Make Up. Here she is all done up with makeup in the cosmetic company’s ad campaign (left). To the right is a photo of Felicity as her casual character Anna. Which look do you prefer?

I remember the days of playing Pretty Pretty Princess—whoever stacked up the most jewels by the end of the game was crowned the prettiest princess. Little girls and women alike find ways to ice anything and everything on their bodies. From our crowns and ears, to our necks and fingers, to even our Queen V’s, no area is left unfrosted. But unless you’re a queen, or a 4 year old playing Pretty Pretty Princess, wearing a tiara, 10 rings, 7 cuffs, 3 necklaces and a pair of earrings is just downright tacky. While Kim Kardashian
drips herself in more diamonds in the pursuit of her fairytale ending, us common folk have the celebrity jewelry trend, “hand bracelets,” to keep our princess dreams satiated.
Stars including Katy Perry, Giuliana Rancic and Victoria Justice are adorning their palms with this statement piece by Prive Jewellery (pictured above right), which is a cross between a bracelet cuff and a tiara. And even this past week, Nicole Scherzinger wore an eye-catching hand bracelet on “X Factor.” Would you wear this trend? We want to know. Vote below! (posted by Cody)
