There are two types of ponytails. There's the familiar, thrown-together-in-three-seconds ponytail, best known for its appearances on bad hair days, rushed mornings, the weekends and at the gym. And then there's the polished, red carpet-worthy ponytail that looks effortless but is sneakily difficult to create, you know, unless you're a professional hairstylist. Luckily, L'Oréal Professionnel Artists Drew Schaefering and Pepper Pastor were willing to share their secrets.

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen may be the best known exception to the rule that child stars implode their own careers after age 17-and the world both loves and respects them for it. Since Dualstar Entertainment Group's creation in 1993 (which they took over as copresidents in 2004), the Olsens have near flawlessly transitioned their business efforts into film, television, merchandise, video games, and now most relevantly, multiple high-fashion labels.

When I first moved from Miami Beach to New York City nine years ago, a pair of rubber rain boots was at the very top of my "Things I Need To Survive In Manhattan" list. In this city-and in most metropolitan areas, honestly-rain doesn't fall straight down, but rather blows sideways. That means that a standard-issue umbrella, while helpful, just won't cut it-in order to remain relatively dry in a downpour, it's necessary to slip into waterproof footwear too. And once upon a time, that left you with the sole option of clunky, heavy galoshes that did little to elevate the rest of one's outfit.
Not anymore, folks! Today, you can certainly still go the traditional wellies route, but there are also tons of cool, unexpected and (dare I say) slim-lined options on the market. From Scandavian lace-ups to studded biker styles to knee-skimming equestrian boots, click through to shop 16 pairs of rainy-day footwear that are likely way cooler than your go-to wellies.

There's a not small subset of people that have been wearing their outerwear in this odd new way-draping pea coats over their shoulders, abandoning the armholes of their trench coats-like they want things that are by definition not capes to be capes. So obviously it begs the question: why not just get a cape?
I guess the worry is that a cape is this dramatic, niche item that wouldn't mesh well with the other things already in your closet-but that's just not true! Capes are versatile and a breeze to style, as these girls prove. Click through above to see them all: five shining examples of how capes can easily integrate into your cold weather wardrobe, whether your planning a fancy cocktail party outfit or just a casual-but-cooler daytime one.Read More »from How to Wear a Cape

Gossip Girl may have ended nearly a year ago, but that doesn't mean its stars aren't still incredibly relevant in the fashion and beauty sphere-especially to mega skincare, hair, and makeup brand L'Oreal Paris. Yesterday, the company confirmed via its Instagram account that Blake Lively (who looked super-chic and glamorous in a textured, off-the-shoulder Balmain minidress complete with chain detailing) will be joining the L'Oreal Paris ranks. We're not sure in what capacity Lively will be representing the brand, but we do have assuredly glossy campaigns to look forward to throughout 2014. This comes just a week after the brand named Lively's Gossip Girl co-star Leighton Meester as the new face of Biotherm, L'Oreal Paris' luxury skincare line.

He'll be succeeding the brand's creative director of nearly 20 years, Rossella Jardini, whose abrupt reason for leaving has not been revealed. It does sound like she's going on good terms, though, as the company just publicly thanked her for making an "enormous contribution in keeping the spirit of Moschino alive and at the forefront of fashion from 1994."

When prepping for a first date, it's normal to want to reach for your tried-and-true little black dress-but according to new research shared by the Daily Mail, you might consider swapping that LBD for an LRD. Men are apparently most likely to form a lasting relationship with a woman who wears red on the first date. On the flip side, girls are most likely to go for guys who dress in grey for date number one-enter obligatory 50 Shades joke here.
The UK study polled 1,128 British females and 1,232 British males currently in relationships, 92 percent of whom remembered which hue their partner was wearing the first time they met. Surprisingly, 69 percent of men and 64 percent of women then admitted that the color their partner happened to wear during that fateful first date affected how attracted they were to them. Below, check out the stats:
