In recent weeks, their orange tote bag became a must-have accessory among the fashion elite. By now, the large logo bags are long gone, but for those still looking to seize the trend, a smaller reusable tote is available. Even better: "It" bags aren't the only fashionable item available at Home Depot.
Carine Roitfeld, the former editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris, recently used The Home Depot's $9.50 white painter's jumpsuit in a fashion shoot on her website, CR Fashion Book. For the latest installment of her "Seven Ways" series, the industry expert "puts a twist on wardrobe essentials" by styling the one-piece garment for various occasions. "So, basically, Roitfeld is saying that a disposable painter's jumpsuit from The Home Depot is an essential," writes Fashionista. "And it turns out it goes great with Courrèges boots and tutus." We found one painter's jumpsuit still available for just $4.10.

Bikinis, hipsters, and thongs may be the top-selling underwear styles, but granny panties are having a moment. Fashionista unearthed the latest figures from market research authority NPD, the sale of high-cut briefs doubled in two years from $79 million in 2010 to $197 million in 2012. Over the past decade colorful lace thongs and patterned bikinis have dominated retail shelves, while basic full-coverage underwear has had the same depressing stigma as mom jeans. As Fashionista points out, "market researchers have been predicting the “end” of the thong since the mid-aughts." But a sudden interest in retro, vintage styles with higher waistlines have contributed to the return of comfy undies.

Celebrities love sharing the gritty details of the dramatic physical transformations they endure for movie roles. Whether method acting or starving themselves (more than usual?), many stars have adopted extreme diets to portray strippers, prostitutes, and other surprisingly toned and perhaps-malnourished sex workers. The latest actress to rough it for a role: Jennifer Aniston, who ate kale, kale, and more kale. And this differs from her regular diet how? Behold, the struggles of actors forced to diet before baring it all on the big screen. By Joanna Douglas, Senior Fashion and Beauty Editor

Waking up looking this beautiful: every woman's dream. (Paramount Pictures)Women are addicted to makeup. A survey by Superdrug found that one in three females refuses to be seen in public without it, nearly half prefer makeup to a bare face, and one in 10 women would never let her significant other see her without a full face of makeup.
Remember in "Bridesmaids" when Kristen Wiig woke up next to a sleeping John Hamm, tiptoed into the bathroom to redo her makeup, and pretended she woke up looking flawless? I'll admit I've done this before, and I'm not alone. When you have a new man in your life, there's an illusion of perfection you want to live up to, and who wants those first sleepovers to shatter that image? Some might say to get over it, that he'll see you without makeup eventually. But for those seeking an alternative solution to the jump-out-of-bed-to-put-on-your-face approach, many makeup brands have created 24-hour formulas and even products designed to make you more attractive as you sleep. Since there are tons of overnight makeup items on the market,Read More »from Can Overnight Makeup Really Leave You Looking Beautiful?

Prince George's baby swaddle and car seat are already hot itemsIt's been two days since the world got a glimpse of the royal baby, and already the retail industry is feeling the impact.Read More »from Prince George's Swaddle Already Hard to Find: 'Royal Baby Effect' Takes Off
First it was Kate Middleton's cornflower blue polka dot dress, which the new mom wore outside the hospital in a nod to her late mother-in-law, Princess Diana. As soon as word got out that British designer Jenny Packham was responsible for the frock, fans of the dress crashed Packham's website.
Now it's all about the newborn, who poked a hand out of his bird-print swaddle by aden + anais and immediately prompted a run on the product. The company's website has since sold out of the blanket, though it's still available at select retailers. It looks like the "Royal Baby Effect" could potentially overshadow the "Kate Effect."

This christening shawl is just like the one Prince William had as a child"We are truly grateful and so delighted that the couple chose to debut the prince in aden + anais," the brand's founder, Raegen Moya-Jones, told the Telegraph. "It is such an honor!" The bird-print swaddle,
\When Kate Middleton and Prince William emerged with their son, Prince George of Cambridge, at St. Mary's Hospital on Tuesday, spectators noticed many similarities between the occasion and William's own birth back in 1982. For starters, the Duchess of Cambridge wore a polka dotted dress, paying tribute to her late-mother in law, Princess Diana, who wore a similar dress while descending the very same staircase. But that's not the only parallel throughout the royal birth. Take a look at how the royal families and the surrounding scene have changed-or remained the same-31 years later.

For the average woman who just gave birth, wearing a fancy dress and having perfect hair is probably low on her list of priorities. But the average woman isn't Kate Middleton. When she, Prince William, and their new baby prince exited the Lindo Wing of St. Mary's Hospital on Tuesday, there were swarms of photographers and cameramen staking out the exits to capture the newly expanded royal family's departure, so who can blame the Duchess of Cambridge for wanting to look fantastic? Early this morning, her private hair stylist, Amanda Cook Tucker, was enlisted to tame and curl Middleton's hair, and she was accompanied by another woman, possibly an assistant or stylist.Read More »from Kate Middleton Exits Hospital with Royal Baby, Stunning Dress, Impeccable Hair

Top designers flocked to the runways of Miami this past week to present their upcoming 2014 swimwear collections. Predictably, there were many retro styles, graphic patterns, sexy one-pieces, and cutouts. But also on hand: pirate gear, suspenders, and bikinis made of metal. The catwalk can provide inspiration for next summer's beach and pool attire, but clearly serious discretion must be used to avoid looking like Captain Jack Sparrow. Without further ado, here are the most outrageous looks from Miami Swim Week. By Joanna Douglas, Yahoo! Shine Senior Fashion and Beauty Editor
