We love the Golden Globes, because it's the perfect platform for actresses to get all gussied up yet still take fashion risks. (Sorry, Oscars!) Some of our favorite ladies looked strikingly beautiful, and others looked, well, not so hot. We've rounded up the dresses we adore and want to strip off their backs, and the ones that should have never been made.

Are you peeing colors, or are you just happy to see me? Would you pay 60 bucks to look like you just peed yourself? That's what URB, the makers of Melting Tights, are hoping. For the price of an adorable and 100 percent urine-stain-free outfit, you can now be the proud owner of hosiery that literally looks like toxic ooze is dripping down from your crotch area. And I thought flesh-toned pantyhose were scary!Read More »from Fashion that Makes Us Sad: Melting Tights
These handmade tights are available in 14 styles like black, white, pastels, glitter, and a particularly frightening neon green shade. (Lavender pee stains bring new meaning to the term "happy accident.") They're created by taking normal, innocent stockings and covering them with drippy latex and baby powder.
Guys, the silver pair just sold out! This is not a joke! I guess we should be thankful they don't come in blood red?

Each month we'll have a different theme and a dedicated space (on the right side of the Shine fashion page) where readers can upload photos of their clothing, accessories, and beauty look. Last month's topic was nails, and we received nearly 100 submissions--we even got a photo from "Jersey Shore" star Snooki! But our favorite manis belonged to a Shine reader named Mari Borrega--her polka dot and rhinestone tips won the title of Shine Reader Look of the Month. Take a look at all the awesome nails Shine readers were rocking last month.
This month's topic is EMERALD GREEN. It's Pantone's official color of 2013 and we're already seeing the shade everywhere, from classy dresses and handbags to playful rain boots and nails. Please send photos (through email or Twitter) of how you're wearing emerald green. We're dying to see the creative ways you're showing of our

Recently we were delighted to see one of Obama's inexpensive standbys getting a lot of use. She wore the same arrow-printed dress from Target's exclusive Merona brand twice on vacation in Hawaii. We spotted her wearing the pink and black sleeveless dress on December 22 deplaning Air Force One in Honolulu and again on January 5 as she boarded the plane to return to Washington D.C.. If the FLOTUS is cool with wearing the same dress twice on vacation, we areRead More »from Michelle Obama Wears Same Target Dress Traveling to and from Hawaii Vacation

Beyonce wore a Norma Kamali one-piece swimsuit last summerDieting and exercising are perhaps the most popular New Years Resolutions, but don't worry if you've indulged on a few too many holiday treats this year. Swimsuits are already trickling onto retail shelves and the spotlight is on one-piece swimwear, not bikinis. Yes, that extra inch to pinch around your tummy can potentially remain hidden all year.Read More »from See Ya, Bikinis! One-piece Swimsuits Poised for a Takeover
25 Iconic Celebrity Swimsuits
Every stylish celebrity from the curvier gals like Beyonce, Christina Hendricks, and Kim Kardashian, to the skinny minis like Taylor Swift, Kate Moss, and Kirsten Dunst are rocking one-piece bathing suits, or "maillots." As a result, the masses are heading directly to department stores, boutiques, and affordable mass-market shops to scoop up similar styles. The New York Post found that one-piece swimsuit sales are up around 20% in local New York shops, so we decided to consult industry experts to find out why.

Last year yielded a few new trends we liked, some we grew tired of, and many we really never liked (hidden wedge heels inside sneakers just seem so masochistic). Suddenly not feeling your neon clothing anymore (or perhaps you've singed your retinas)? Fear not! Fashion is cyclical and you may want that bright chartreuse dress one day. But personally, we at Shine are taking a much-needed break from these 13 items in 2013. Let us know if you'll be joining us.

We love pretty makeup, cool nail polish, luxurious body lotion, and fancy hair products, but the truth is, we rarely treat ourselves to the upscale items in gorgeous packaging that we covet daily. Since holiday gifting is all about buying nice things for others that they maybe wouldn't splurge on for themselves, we've rounded up the most swoon-worthy beauty items on our wish lists. Santa, are you reading?
Attention last-minute holiday shoppers and ladies who can't resist picking great gifts for themselves: the entire Shine staff has rounded up the very best items we bought in 2012. From fantastic no-run tights and comfy bras to makeout albums and must-have makeup, we love these purchases and strongly believe you will too.

The new Uniqlo meggings retail for around $24After years of never-ending "leggings as pants" debate (are they suitable for work? Should your shirt cover your butt? Are jeggings more or less acceptable? Are they bad for you?), spandex pants as daywear are now being introduced to a new customer: men. Yes, the questionable bottoms are being stretched to new proportions as high-end designers like Givenchy and Prada as well as mass retailers like Uniqlo, Nike, and Urban Outfitters market leggings for male customers. We've seen ultra-secure guys like Lenny Kravitz, Brits like Russell Brand, and even young pop stars like Justin Bieber wear man leggings (meggings), but are everyday dudes really interested in stretch pants? Sure, guys were once resistant to tight, skinny jeans, but we can't imagine actual meggings on the masses. We asked some male fashion editors to share their perspective on the new phenomenon.Read More »from Meggings (male Leggings) Are Here. But Who is Wearing Them?

Welcome to the December edition of What Are You Wearing Today? This month we asked Shine readers to submit photos of their nails, and received nearly 100 submissions. There were so many great manicures-you ladies have skills! We selected our favorites and compiled them into one fun, colorful gallery. Congrats to Mari Borrega for having the Reader Look of Month! She sent us this photo of a trio of manicures and we loved the variety. From polka dot to rhinestone, bold to pastel, pointy to square, long to short, these tips were our favorites of the bunch.
We enjoyed looking at all your creative manicures, and hope they'll provide inspiration the next time you pick up a bottle of lacquer. If you'd like to submit again, please stay tuned! We are taking a brief hiatus and will return in January with the next What Are You Wearing Today topic. In the mean time, let us know which Shine reader you think has the best nails.
