Kate Middleton Considering Kate Middleton is pretty much Britain's de facto queen, it's not terribly shocking that, in the past, she nabbed a spot on the U.K.'s edition of FHM's 100 Sexiest Women in the World list. In fact, she clocked in at number 33 last year.

This year, however, it seems the Duchess has disappeared completely from the roundup. This could be due to two possibilities:
1. British men are being rude: She got pregnant, ipso facto she's no longer sexy.
2. British men are being respectful: She's married to the future King of England, she's the granddaughter-in-law of the reigning queen, and she's got a baby on the way-maybe she placing her alongside girls in monokinis and wet T-shirts isn't the nation's first priority.
Truth be told, our first instict was to assume the former was true, but then we got off our soapbox and realized the omission could be

PRPS NoirWe live in an age of endless options, where nearly anything is possible. And the notion that personal style is contingent upon purchasing high-priced designer goods has been all but squashed thanks to democratic retailers like Gap, Uniqlo, and Zara. But while many brands look to cut corners in order to increase profit margins, Donwan Harrell of PRPS is moving in another direction. He introduced a specialized division of his label, PRPS Noir, that traffics in the world of handcrafted denim - with an eyebrow-raising price tag attached. A pair of these jeans will set you back four figures, topping off at around $1,200. But is it worth it? We called Harrell to talk about his Bentley of denim.

In the age of Instagram, it's imperative to know how to take a good selfie - considering the amount of people who will see this picture (and the fact that it'll be online forever once you post it), a bad selfie can ruin you. Okay, maybe not ruin you, but it at least guarantees a bad comment or two. So, what should you be taking into consideration when you snap a picture of yourself with the best haircut you've ever had or the most adorable macaron from your favorite bakery? Let us show you how to take a great selfie, thanks to the lessons we've learned from Amanda Bynes' newest career (taking Twit Pics of herself).
From finding a good background to taking a minute to focus the camera, we've put together a list of the lessons Amanda Bynes' selfies have taught us, ranging from good to bad to ugly. Take a look at the child star's pictures above and tell us your tips for taking selfies in the comments below!

Kanye West Another day, another Kanye West Twitter stunt.

Continuing his (at best) bizarre relationship with the social media platform, Kanye decided this morning to delete every single past tweet and replace them all with this cryptic gem: "June Eighteen."
After New York-based DJ Peter Rosenberg spoke out this week about West's next album-he said it's "done" and "very dark"- the most obvious possible meaning is that June 18 is its release date. But considering Yeezy's storied history with Twitter, there's really no telling what the rapper and soon-to-be-dad was trying to convey with the mysterious message. However, that doesn't mean it's not worth a shot. Below, five educated guesses at what Kanye's trying to tell the world.

Can't afford an off-the-rack Burberry bag or a checked runway trench coat? Most people (including us) can't, but that doesn't mean that owning a piece from one of your favorite heritage designers will never be in the stars.

Where's a Veritaserum when you need one?

Courtesy Photo (3); Max Mumby/Indigo/GettyThe Kate Middleton Effect struck again when the polka dot Topshop dress she wore to visit the Warner Brothers Studio in London sold out faster than you could say "RepliKate." If you weren't one of the lucky ones to snag the adorable fit and flare dress, don't worry-we picked out three similar styles that will have you feeling and looking like our favorite royal. From left: Score a similar Topshop style with slightly different dots ($76 at nordstrom.com); mix textures with print with ModCloth's polka dot and lace ($60 at modcloth.com); and reverse the hues in this white-on-black version by Dorothy Perkins ($29 at dorothyperkins.com).
