"Mullet" gowns are trendy, platform stilettoes are in, but the real breakout item for prom 2013 is the corsage. Once a slightly dowdy accessory, now clever DIY'ers (and some florists) are using rhinestones, feathers, LED lights, and found objects to make one-of-kind pieces that are modern and sassy-and cheap. Prom costs are soaring and shoppers can expect to spend a bare minimum of $25 on a store-bought corsage. If you want to make your own, the always-hip Rookie Mag has an easy tutorial. Here are our favorites from Instagram.Read More »from The Corsage: Prom’s Hottest Accessory
Nothing is more satisfying than finding a great new pair of jeans. But with summer approaching, we prefer our denim in dress form, so we've rounded up the top five styles we're excited to wear non-stop. From pale chambray to to ultra-dark denim, these are not your average shirt dresses or kiddie overall skirts. We'll be dressing ours up with sexy heels, stylish sandals, and loads of colorful accessories. After all, denim provides the perfect neutral palette and only gets better with wear.

Face-off. Kind of literally. No apologies for the pun.
Score one for the bearded. Again. For now. Because a new study published by the journal Evolution and Human Behavior reports that women find men with "heavy stubble" most attractive, trailed by an apparent mob of disgusting fully bearded, lightly stubbled, and clean-shaven men, all of whom the fairer sex found to be about equally attractive to one another. (In fairness, full beards were rated highest for perceived parenting ability and healthiness.)

For the bald-faced among us, this comes as a bit of a surprise (by which we mean: punch to the groin). It was only three years ago that Schick's Skin-dex Survey declared that shaven men have sex about twice as much as those who don't. And that 64% of women would rather sleep with a cleanly shaven man - senses of humor and bloodlines held constant, we assume. (For the reasonable skeptics of companies who release polls: Schick does make a trimmer, too - though we of course see your point.Read More »from Science Says Women Love Men with Beards

Justin Bieber Justin Bieber is a bad luck magnet as of late-and it's partially due to his reckless behavior. Two days after making international headlines when a fan attacked him onstage at a concert, the 19-year-old pop prince is in hot water with the Dubai police for his excessive speeding.

According to reports, the Biebs has been tooling around the swanky city, located in the United Arab Emirates, in a $400,000 white Lamborghini Aventador. He has been caught on a speeding camera a whopping total of six times during his short trip, and now he's got some hefty fines to pay.
This is not the first time he's caused some controversy on the road. Despite his young age, he's got millions in the bank and a penchant for fast cars-and was recently pulled over for racing his Ferrari in his gated community in Calabasas, California.
Our question here is: Why was he driving in

I have been working in "slow fashion" for a couple of years now and am familiar with the consideration and care that goes into designing and producing not only an entire collection, but each individual garment. I work for the small, Brooklyn-based brand Nadia Tarr. We use American-made fabrics and manufacture locally in Brooklyn, which has given me a new insight into the industry and how important each step of the process is. It has also raised my expectations in terms of clothing quality.
Fast-fashion giants like H&M and Zara are perfect for the girl on a budget who wants to look good traipsing around Manhattan. I used to pick up cheap wears in bulk-and some of the far reaches of my closet still house the remnants of my "quantity over quality" phase… otherwise known as my twenties. But at the end of my discount decade, what do I have to show for it? I don't have one fabulous frock that has survived even two washes or trips to the dry-cleaner. The only piecesRead More »from Why Your Cheap Clothes Are Harmful: Just Say No to Fast Fashion

Sienna Miller had my favorite hair look at the Met Ball last night. Not only did she embrace the evening's Punk: Chaos to Couture theme perfectly in a white Burberry dress and embellished jacket, but her textured hair, spiked headband, and Genevieve Jones ear cuff crushed the competition on the red carpet.
Oscar Blandi created the look for Sienna and we're got the steps on how to recreate it:
1. Add tons of texture to fully dry hair using a mix of pomade and gloss (Pronto Dry Sculpting Pomade & mix with Pronto Gloss). The hair should feel very thick and "dirty," but the gloss should keep hair looking sleek and polished.Read More »from Trend to Try Tuesday: Sienna Miller's Spiked Headband
2. Take the two sides of the hair and slick them back using a mix of serum and mousse (Hair Lift Mousse & Hair Lift Serum).
3. Use a curling iron to create a light bend in the hair.
4. Take both sides of the hair and pull them back as you would a ponytail.

After you've given birth to your very own mini-me, it's hard to resist the urge to dress her like a tiny version of yourself. But fashion doesn't cross the generation gap very easily, and what may look great -- or at least acceptable -- on a child often just looks bizarre on a grown woman. And vice versa. Take a look.
Kate Middleton has access to all the fashion accessories in the world but her style mainstay is undoubtedly her vast clutch collection. And much like anything Middleton wears, she's pushing tiny purses into the spotlight. According to a story in The Guardian, handbag designer Lulu Guinness credits the Duchess with sparking a new handbag trend. "If she's done anything for the handbag, it's the fact that she wears small clutch bags," Guinness recently said at the Condé Nast College of Fashion & Design opening party in New York. "Personally, I am making my clutch bags smaller next season, so they're more delicate and ladylike, and that's to do with her, I think." Here are Kate's favorite clutches throughout the years.

As much as we hate to admit it, the fashion at this year's Costume Institute Benefit-a.k.a. the Metropolitan Museum of Art Gala, was a little more more "meh gala" than "Met Gala."
Considering the grandiose ball marked the official debut of the museum's upcoming exhibit "Punk: Chaos to Couture"-and attendees' attire is typically loosely inspired by the exhibition's theme-we thought we were in for a dizzying fashion spectacle filled with leather corsets, ripped flannel gowns, and maybe a combat boot or two.
While that wasn't exactly the case, we did notice that quite a few celebrities in attendance looked as if they were channeling other famous folks with their "punk" looks.
Whether it was Miley Cyrus doing her best Guy Fieri impersonation (no offense, honey: We totally thought you were one of the only ones who worked the night's theme to a T), or Sarah Jessica Parker taking cues from a rare African bird, here are 5 celebrity doppelgangers straightRead More »from Miley Cyrus Does Her Best Guy Fiere; 4 More Met Gala Doppelgängers

I really like the new modern basics from Everlane. They offer a small but carefully selected collection of shirts, bags, and scarves (for men and women), in an array of modern colors. I'd like to see more brights in their offerings and I haven't placed an order yet, but they do look promising. Plus their tees are super-affordable, with most priced at just $15!
