APOh no! Kate Moss has grey hair! What a bad dye job! That's what the media was saying earlier this morning when photos of the 36-year-old supermodel at the launch of her Longchamp bags surfaced on our side of the pond. Plenty of women start going grey by her age, but we suspected that a celebrity of her caliber would not be so sloppy with her highlights. Well, it turns out we were right: Kate Moss has had strips of her hair dyed grey deliberately.
Back in December we read articles about how young women like Pixie Geldof were trading in their platinum hair for a greyish silver, but we didn't believe it was a trend. Now that Kate Moss as adopted the look, we're sure imitators will follow.
Sure, highlights mixed with natural grey hair may be a great way to transition your hair as you age, but do women want to willingly go grey before they have to? [Daily Mail][The Cut]

Getty ImagesIn the age where women long for perfection and will seek it out by any means possible, a new trend towards imperfect teeth seems oddly refreshing. Remember several years ago when celebs whitened their teeth so much they almost looked blue? And all those stars who got way-too-big veneers that resembled Chiclets? Well, with stars like Anna Paquin and supermodel Lara Stone sporting adorable gap-toothed smiles, dentists are saying more and more people are leaving their natural tooth spacing alone, or having procedures done to get their original tooth gap back!Read More »from Thanks to Anna Paquin, people want their gapped teeth back
"We've overdone it with aesthetics," says cosmetic dentist Dr. Laura Torrado. "If your teeth are too white or too big, it looks unnatural so people are coming back in to make their smiles look more natural," she says.
But famous faces with gapped teeth are nothing new. Madonna, Lauren Hutton, Jane Birkin, Vanessa Paradis, Jennifer Hudson, Amy Winehouse, Shannon Doherty, as well as male celebs like David Letterman, Mick Jagger,

Paris Fashion Week is all about beautiful and extravagant clothing, but to attention addicts like Kanye West and Amber Rose, the festivities are all about them. They try to ensure that nothing will be as show-stopping or head-turning as what they themselves wear--not on the runway, but sitting in fi
Getty ImagesTyra Banks may rub us the wrong way from time to time, but we have to give her credit for being a boundary pusher. She went on her talk show sans-weave to discuss the importance of loving your real hair, she's had plus-sized and transgender contestants on "America's Next Top Model," and even dedicated the most recent season of "ANTM" to petite women who were 5'7" and under. Tyra is testing new waters again with a plus-sized modeling competition for teenagers called "Tyra's Fiercely Real Teen Model Search." To qualify, ladies must be 13 to 19 years old, 5'9" to 6'1", and wear between a size 12 and 20. In addition, Banks is having participants show off their bodies in fitted leggings and tank tops for their entry photos. She provides posing tips on her site, tyra.com.Read More »from Tyra Banks searches for plus-size teen models

Xposurephotos.comMost of us mere mortals have a mix of boots, flats, heels, sneakers, and sandals in our closets, but Victoria "Posh" Beckham lives up to her Spice Girls moniker wearing sky-high stilettos and platforms every single day. Yes, even when going to the airport or picking up her boys from soccer practice. So imagine the audible gasp we made when we came across this photo of Beckham in a pair of ballet flats. GASP! Yes, we're stunned. We're heading to the optometrist to have our vision tested. What will you tell us next, that Lady Gaga was seen wearing pants?!Read More »from Victoria Beckham wears flats! (Yes, this is news.)
We're not the only ones scratching our heads. US Weekly has been documenting her footwear selections this week, and claim they spotted her in flats twice this week. What does it all mean?! US drudged up an old quote where Beckham said, "Unless they're on a ballet dancer doing ballet, I just don't get it...

OK!With personal trainers, nutritionists, and private chefs celebrities have been known to shed their baby weight quickly. And with 24/7 paparazzi stalkers, we can hardly say we blame them for wanting to look their best. But when we saw Kourtney Kardashian looking slim as ever on the cover of OK! just six weeks after giving birth, we had to question if some foul play was involved. Sure enough, the magazine's alleged "exclusive" was bogus, and they actually airbrushed her post-baby belly right off... and mama Kardashian is not happy about it!Read More »from OK! magazine makes Kourtney Kardashian's baby bump disappear
"They doctored and Photoshopped my body to make it look like I have already lost all the weight, which I have not," Kardashian told WWD. On her Twitter account, Kourtney explained in further detail. "One of those weeklies got it wrong again…they didn't have an exclusive with me. And I gained 40 pounds while pregs, not 26...But thanks!"
The undoctored photo (click here to see it) was taken when her son, Mason, was just seven days old and ran in the
Getty ImagesToday it's pouring in New York City, and I'm looking a lot like the woman on the left. I ran out to do a few morning errands and my sleek, shiny hair (I swear it looked amazing) instantly transformed into a wet, frizzy, straggly mess.
I don't know if this is a problem that men deal with, but every woman I've spoken to today has complained about how the weather ruined their hair, and potentially their whole day. After seeing how celebrities handled the Golden Globe red carpet with umbrellas in hand, I'm no longer going to let a few raindrops, well, rain on my parade.
Here are a few ways I've combat rain hair in the past:
- Putting my hair into a loose braid. I see it all the time on the runways, but I'm convinced I look a bit too much like Heidi, Pippi Longstocking, or some such character that I don't wish to emulate.
- Straightening it as best as I can with a ceramic iron before going outdoors, and misting with hairspray to keep in place. What a waste of 20 minutes.
- Slicking it
Getty ImagesThere's so much pressure on women in the real world to stay in shape and looking svelte--we can't even imagine the demands there are on A-list ladies to look their best. And in Hollywood, "best" often equals thin to an unhealthy or unfair degree. Actress Anne Hatahway says that when award season comes around she often receives designer dresses that are too small for her, and has to send them back to be altered to her size. So basically, the designers are assuming she's a smaller size or would like her to fit that size.Read More »from Is Anne Hathaway too big for Hollywood?
"If designers want to dress me, then I am at the larger end of the Hollywood scale so they have to be fine with that," says Hathaway. In what world would Hathaway be at the larger end of anything? Are we seeing things?! She says, "I think what some designers do is if a dress doesn't fit you because it's been fitted to a size zero model they will remake the dress for you."
Maybe designers should be a little more realistic and forgiving than to make dresses in a size

Getty ImagesWhen I received a gorgeous $50 bottle of Chanel No. 5 bath oil in the mail last month I immediately fell in love with the bottle and the smell. Unfortunately with that price tag I felt awful about pouring it in the tub, and thus have yet to indulge.

The creators of ME! Bath have made a bath bomb treatment that starts at $50,000 a pop. Yes you read that right. Not surprisingly it's called The Eighth Continent: the World's Most Expensive Bath,

Fashion IndieDear Chris Brown,Read More »from Dear Chris Brown, your attempts at reinventing your image aren't working
All week long we have seen photos of you attending fashion week in Milan and Paris, trying so desperately to look clean cut and stylish. When we saw this particular photo of you (at right), we audibly groaned. Besides the fact that you're inexplicably dressed like a dandy dweeb, your feeble attempts at reinventing yourself are just not working for us. We hate to have to spell this out for you, but when we saw that photo of your ex-girlfriend Rihanna bruised and battered from what you did to her, our opinions of you changed. You may want us to see you as a fashion icon, or a great musical talent (your new album was released in December and we didn't even notice), but now we just think of you as a girlfriend abuser. Maybe one day that will change, but it's going to take a lot more than a non-threatening outfit.
Chris, we swear, we are trying to work with you on this. We still occasionally get your song, "Forever," stuck in our heads. You finally manned up and made a
