Fall is just around the corner, but the cooler weather doesn’t mean that you have to ditch your favorite summer styles. Michelle Madhok, author of “Wear This Now” and founder of SheFinds.com, offered up some advice to help you bring autumn to your wardrobe…gradually.
If you’re sad to put away your white clothing as Labor Day approaches, Michelle has some good news. “That’s actually not true anymore,” she says about the old fashioned no-white rule. “The whole key is to tone it down. As long as you add in some dark colors, you can still wear them.”
In fact, Michele says many summer styles are still okay if you add in seasonally-appropriate elements. “If you have a maxi dress, edge it up a little with some leather,” she says. “Leather is a big thing for fall, so pair it with some of your summery skirts and it will look great.”
Michelle also says there’s one thing she’ll never leave the house without when...Read More »

You know Stephanie March from her role as A.D.A. Alexandra Cabot on "Law and Order: Special Victims Unit," a role she held since 2000. “When I started the show, I was not old enough to have graduated from Law School,” the actress says. Now, Stephanie knows a little bit more about the system. “People ask me all the time for legal advice!”
Offscreen, she's a committed advocate of women rights, and is extremely active in children's charities. Stephanie last appeared as a recurring character in season 13 of the hit NBC show, but still remains friends with many of her "SVU" colleagues. She's currently working on launching a cool new business this fall with one of the show's former makeup artists. “It’s called Rouge” she says of the NYC salon where women can have makeup done by industry professionals for affordable prices. “I’m really excited.”
Ali also quizzed the actress about the many guest stars who have made appearances on "SVU" to test her compr...Read More »

Matt McGorry plays the adorable Officer John Bennett on "Orange Is the New Black," but the handsome actor and former bodybuilder started out as a somewhat nerdy kid.
McGorry won his school's eighth-grade science fair for a project on "surface tension," and as a gift for his good work, his parents arranged a unique present: a personal trainer.
"At the time, I was probably a little self-conscious about my body," McGorry says about his awkward years. "I kinda hated it in the beginning, but I kept with it." The teenager soon realized the workouts were transforming both his body and his confidence. "The more work you put in, the more you get out," McGorry says. "I could see the progress."
The results eventually led him to bodybuilding competitions, and he became a personal trainer before he made it big onscreen. But despite his growing "Orange Is the New Black" fame, McGorry does his best to stay ground...Read More »

We've all heard the term "lovesick," but what about "lovestupid"? Author and relationship coach Tionna Smalls says that the biggest mistake women make when they start dating a guy is "not having a life. As soon as they get a man, they get stupid. They don't want to go to go to the gym anymore, they don't want to go get their hair done anymore, all they want to do is just do their man."
Tionna says women also fall into the "Prince Charming" trap and assume they're "just going to live happily ever after" whenever the right one happens to come along. The love coach has a very different view: She advises women to date more than one guy at a time until the right one works out. "I look at dating as a race," she says. "Whoever's going to make it at the end of the line will be my man!"
She offered up some helpful categories as examples of dating different types of men. "You've got the money man, the funny man, the dude you can go to restaur...Read More »

Kathy Hilton is an actress and fashion designer, but her most famous role may be that of a mom. While she has four kids, Kathy says her two daughters--socialite Paris Hilton and fashion designer Nicky Hilton--had the biggest impact on her parenting style.
Kathy says she was brought up in a very strict household, and when she became a mom at 19, she stuck with what was familiar. “We were raised very strict, and I was that way because that was all I knew,” she says.
She applied the same philosophy with her older daughter Paris, who went on to make headlines for her hard-partying ways, even ending up in jail on a few occasions. Kathy says Paris gave her a run for her money "for a good 2 or 3 years."
During that period, Kathy’s younger daughter, Nicky, gave her an important piece of advice. “She said ‘Mom, do yourself one favor. Do not box me in like that.’” Kathy loosened the reins and saw how it affected Ni...Read More »
