Project: Breastfeeding," and is using some provocative images to get everyone’s attention: shirtless dads trying to breastfeed, and the phrase, “If I could, I would.”Sensitive Tennessee dad Hector Cruz is tired of “dumbed down” father roles comprised of adjusting car seats and putting together cribs. So, in an effort to help bring men more into the meaningful fold of parenting, he’s launched an awareness campaign, "Read More »from 'Breastfeeding' Dads Campaign Aims to Get Men More Involved
“Let’s be honest, we have to get conversations started in a very dramatic way,” Cruz, the photographer behind the project, tells Yahoo Shine. “What better way than by showing photos like these?” (Last year, a Chicago campaign aiming to decrease teen-pregnancy rates used images of “pregnant” boys to make a splash, kicking up plenty of controversy, too.)
“Project: Breastfeeding,” which kicked off this week with a bit of fanfare, has several aims: to dissolve the stigma around public breastfeeding, and to get fathers more involved in breastfeeding efforts and in parenting in

The Real Housewives of New York isn't back until March 11 (hurry up, already), but lucky for us, cast member Carole Radziwill's first novel, The Widow's Guide to Sex and Dating (Henry Holt), is on shelves now. For our February issue, I spoke with her about the inspiration behind the book, how to find the right guy, and losing her widow virginity.
How did you decide to write a novel? It came out of a conversation I was having with a girlfriend of mine, Christiane [Amanpour]. I was sharing some dating stories and laughing about how painful but curious it was to date again after being with my husband for ten years. She suggested that I keep a journal, and I thought it would make a funny book. She even came up with the title.
What was the hardest part of getting back out there? Losing my widow virginity--I sound like an 18-year-old! Because of the grief process, you just want to get it overRead More »from Real Housewife Carole Radziwill on 'The Widow's Guide to Sex and Dating'

Courtesy of P&GGracie Gold is everything I imagined an Olympic figure skater to be: precise and on point (lots of training), upbeat and optimistic (how else to survive all that relentless competition), and obsessed with beauty (did you not see her red lipstick?). I spoke to the 18-year-old Sochi veteran--and CoverGirl spokesperson--about her favorite products and where she looks for inspiration. Her biggest beauty lesson? "Always wear a smile because you never know who is watching." Spoken like a pro.
Beauty inspiration: "Grace Kelly is my main inspiration, for her timeless beauty. I like Jennifer Lawrence for her fun, down-to-earth style, and Taylor Swift is always elegant. On the ice, I go for a simple, elegant--always one color, nothing extreme. When I'm at home, I am much more expressive and quirky."See more: Celebrity Hairstyles That Will Make You Look 10 Years Younger

Keeping up with the Kardashians takes on new meaning today. The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery has just named the future Mrs. Kanye West as one of the reasons behind a stunning 58 percent leap in the popularity of buttocks augmentation--a.k.a the Brazilian butt lift--between 2012 and 2013, the latest year for which figures are available. This is the largest percentage rise for any cosmetic surgery procedure, the society reports (and by the way, we're not for a second suggesting that Kim K. has had one!), followed by labiaplasty procedures, which rose by 44 percent in the same period.

Buttocks augmentation is usually done with fat injections--taking fat from the waist or stomach, say, and transferring it to the buttocks to achieve a higher and rounder posterior profile. Silicone implants are also available, but these have a higher risk of complications. What needs to be stressed when looking at these numbers is that

The technician who examined my hair at the clinic, Stephen Pullan, applied an invigorating cocktail of scalp-cleansing, hair-strengthening masks to my head. He then informed me that my (already superfine) strands are shedding faster than normal. And one of the most likely culprits may be my diet: "You have to eat meat," said Pullan, "especially at breakfast. Fish, chicken, meat."

The key to coverage that stays put is powder. "When we need to cover spots, we put on foundation, and we powder the area. Then we apply concealer followed by more powder," Pecheux told me. Why all the steps? "A foundation is greasy, and a concealer is greasy, so when you layer them on top of each other, they slip off.

At last year's Academy Awards, Chanel celebrity makeup artist Kate Lee changed Anne Hathaway's lipstick "three times in about five minutes" because of last-minute wardrobe decisions (you may have heard a little something about that). But amidst the lipstick and wardrobe chaos, Hathaway took home the award for best supporting actress. This year, needless to say, was a little less frenzied (for both ladies). "Her stylist sent me a picture of the dress a few days before, so I had an idea of what we were doing," says Lee. "The vibe was very relaxed, because she had to just show up and give someone else an award." We spoke with Lee to get all the details on Hathaway's gorgeous makeup look, but especially how to get those killer brows.
Skin. Lee prepped Hathaway's skin with Chanel Hydra Beauty Serum and Creme. "It's like a drink of water," Lee says. She let both sink in while Hathaway had her hair done, before applying Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet in BeigeRead More »from Allure Exclusive: We Got the Scoop on Anne Hathaway's 2014 Oscar Makeup

A neighborhood race to benefit veterans became even more relevant when a flock of runners paid tribute to a veteran... right in the middle of the marathon!
Joe Bell, a 95-year-old World War II veteran, exited his San Jose, California home last Sunday wearing his U.S. Army Airborne brown uniform, to cheer-on the participants in the 408K Race to the Row. His support was appropriate for this event, as it benefits the Pat Tillman Foundation, which funds scholarships for military veterans.
It wasn't long before Bell's presence became bigger than the race itself. Runners ran up to him, shaking his hand and thanking him for his service. Mercury News reporter Julia Prodis Sulek happens to live next door to Bell, and captured this organic tribute on her iPhone.
"Jim often talks about how he doesn't expect to live much longer," Sulek said, adding, "And I wanted to capture this moment for him and his family. It's thrilling that it's touching so many people."
