To Clueless fans the world over, Alicia Silverstone will always be Cher Horowitz, the way existential, Alaïa-wearing star of one of the greatest movies of all time. But for Silverstone herself, her days as "a virgin who can't drive" ended back in 1995 when the movie was released. Since then, the naturopath and committed vegan has starred in a slew of other films-some more memorable than others-while blazing a trail as both an avid animal and environmental rights activist. In addition to being crowned PETA's Sexiest Vegan Alive in 2004, Silverstone published a book last year on eating and wellness called The Kind Diet: A Simple Guide to Feeling Great, Losing Weight, and Saving the Planet (Rodale, 2009). The accompanying Web site, www.thekindlife.com, features tips on cooking, community-sponsored agriculture (CSA) initiatives, and where to find the best all-natural eye shadows on the market. A natural beauty buff, Silverstone has also collaborated on a series of makeup bags andRead More »from Alicia Silverstone Talks Natural Beauty (And A Little Clueless)

The runway trend of the past few seasons has been the storming of the high-fashion catwalk by more commercial-skewing girls: Miranda Kerr and Gisele Bündchen at Balenciaga, Alessandra Ambrosio and Doutzen Kroes at Prada, and so on. But the tide, it turns out, goes both ways-the commercial holy grail, the Victoria's Secret fashion show, tapes in New York City tonight, and plenty of higher-than-high fashion models are set to strut.Read More »from A Sneak Peek at the Victoriaâ€™s Secret Fashion Show
"It's such an editorial level," said Sophia Neophitou, the 10 and Harper's Bazaar U.K. editrix who's taken over styling duties for Charlotte Stockdale this season. "It's not just a predictable approach to it at all, which is something I wasn't totally aware of before I got here, you know. We looked at girls we love to shoot editorially; that's what great. I think there's a perception before you get here of what will work. But the reality is, it's about the girl, it's about the woman, what she brings as a human being to it, rather than has she got a

In T-minus ten hours, Victoria's Secret Angels like the greens-and-protein-packing Adriana Lima, a kimono-clad Anja Rubik, and maybe even one Gisele Bündchen (if certain rumors prove true) will take to the runway at the Lexington Avenue Armory for the taping of the lingerie brand's annual fashion show. Swarovski-studded Miracle Bras and all manners of feathered appendages will no doubt abound, as will the tanned, shimmering faces and bouncy blow-outs we've come to expect from a show that puts spectacle and sexiness above all else. We'll be backstage this afternoon to bring you all the important face-painting details, but here's a little teaser for now: VS has created a special makeup kit to help you get the beauty look at home once the show airs next month. The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show Backstage Makeup Kit features 50 must-haves for eyes, lips, and face, including 30 Silky Eye Shadows, five Lip Glosses, five Perfect Lipsticks, and four blushes, as well as a Luminous Powder,Read More »from EXCLUSIVE: Victoriaâ€™s Secret Fashion Show, The Makeup Kit

With November just a week away, Fall has hit its stride, which means a couple of things: First, you're likely coming to the end of your seasonal-transition skin issues (rejoice!) and, two, you're probably considering a hair color change now that those summer sun streaks seem incongruous with the cooler temperatures. "I warm my clients' shades up in the fall," Tracey Cunningham told us. As Redken's creative consultant for color and one half of Beverly Hills' celeb-friendly salon Byron + Tracey, Cunningham knows a thing or two about color changes (she tends to the tresses of Kate Bosworth, Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore, and Jessica Biel on the regular). Here, the coiffing star talks deep mahogany and brilliant copper-red hues and name-drops the Victoria's Secret Angel who currently boasts the most requested hair color in L.A.
So, why warmer for winter?
It's funny how clients embrace the winter. You'd think that we've trained them to think that they need to go darker! But peopleRead More »from Talking Fall Hair Color With Redkenâ€™s Tracey Cunningham
Hard to imagine it now, but there was a time before fast fashion/designer collaborations. (It was a mythical year called…2003.) The meeting of high-end designer and mass retailer has changed the way we shop, and none more than Target, whose designer collab series, GO International, celebrates its fifth year in 2011. To celebrate, it's digging back through the archive and re-releasing dresses from its now-unavailable collections gone by; the 34-piece collection will draw on GO lines by Proenza Schouler, Luella Bartley, Libertine, Rogan, Richard Chai, Rodarte, and more. The company's remaining tight-lipped about what will be produced until February 2011, but if we've got any powers to persuade, we have a few suggestions for dresses we'd be happy to see-and even wait on line for!-a second time around.

The idea that something designed to camouflage the complexion could also be used to protect and repair the skin may seem like an oxymoron-or simply too good to be true. But more and more color collections are hitting the market with skincare ingredients, giving the makeup application process an aspect of instant gratification with long-term benefits. Avon is the latest brand to get in on the action with its Healthy Makeup range, a line with three purposes: hydration, evening out skin tone and texture, and boosting allover radiance. The five Healthy products-a light-as-air mousse foundation, a liquid foundation, two varieties of lipstick, and a cream-to-powder eye shadow-are all formulated with a blend of botanicals like pomegranate and apple root, antioxidants, and vitamins A, C, and E to help banish free radicals and prevent the physical signs of aging. We were most impressed by the Lip Conditioner, a super-moisturizing lipstick with SPF 15 that eradicated our chapped spots, andRead More »from Avonâ€™s On A Health Kick

If you're a late-night person, maintaining a diligent evening beauty routine can be a daunting task. Teeth-brushing and face-washing after hours at the clubs? Forget about it. But with fall's cool dry air making your skin cracked and rough from head to toe, round-the-clock attention becomes even more important to maintaining a comfortable moisture balance. Which is why the latest from Jergens could be the miracle worker you've been looking for. Boasting a formula rich in antioxidants and nocturnal flower extracts like jasmine and evening primrose-both of which are prized for their healing and irritation-reducing abilities-its Overnight Repair Nightly Restoring Moisturizer works best during the hours when you don't. And unlike a lot of other overnight treatments, it absorbs quickly so you get smoother, more even-toned legs and arms without the oily aftermath. Keep it on your night table for easy access should you need to make a beeline from your front door directly to your bed.
For those of you wondering how the zebra-print shirt in the last look at Louis Vuitton could be so skin-tight on Kristen McMenamy that nary a fabric ripple could be seen as she traipsed down the runway, there was good reason for that: It wasn't a shirt at all-it was painted on. Body art has definitely had a moment on the runway over the past few seasons since the Mulleavy sisters had a team of MAC specialists cover models' arms in tribal tattoos at the Spring 2010 Rodarte show (a wealth of temporary tattoos at Chanel and Jean Paul Gaultier followed that season, with a fine-art incarnation turning up at Wayne for Spring 2011). But craftsmanship of this level-in which you truly had to triple-take those black and white stripes with gold glitter accents to fully convince yourself that there was no cotton, Lycra, or spandex to speak of-is somewhat new. New to the last 48 hours, that is. Makeup master Pat McGrath may have etched out a long-sleeved shirt, but face (and leg and arm) painterRead More »from Backstage Body Painting: A Burgeoning Trend?

America's Next Top Model-the reality competition series produced by Tyra Banks-is pulling out the big guns this season, with a panel of judges that includes fashion editor André Leon Talley and guest spots by designers like Diane von Furstenberg, Patricia Field, and Zac Posen. Last night, supermodel Karolina Kurkova stopped by the model mansion to share some healthy eating tips and life lessons she's learned being on the catwalking front lines for ten years (after a brief hiatus, KK was back on the runway this season with turns at shows like Michael Kors, Roberto Cavalli, Jean Paul Gaultier, Elie Saab, and Hermès). Here, the 26-year-old Czech beauty chats with us about organic living, being a model mom, and why even a size zero can't live on lettuce and water alone.
So how did you become involved with the show?Read More »from Karolina Kurkova Grooms Americaâ€™s Next Top Models
Tyra asked me to come on and talk about my experiences, and I decided it would be a good opportunity to share what I've learned. But I also wanted to inspire these
More than a decade ago, Liz Earle launched a little product called the Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser that skyrocketed her natural beauty brand to success, and subsequently revolutionized the entire concept of at-home facial exfoliation. (For the uninitiated, the basic hot-cloth system involves two steps: massaging a creamy cleanser on dry skin with your fingertips, then gently rubbing off said cleanser with a textured cloth that's been dipped in warm water.) Recently two new hot cloth cleanser kits hit our radar, both touting impressive formulas and results. Curious to see if any of these upstarts could rival Earle's original, a, er, face-off ensued (sorry!)

Launched in August, Boots No. 7 Radiance Boosting Hot Cloth Cleanser is the latest from the popular U.K.-based drugstore brand with a solid reputation for quality skincare.
