    The man who made Campbell's Tomato Soup cans a work of art will soon be heading to a makeup counter near you. Nars Cosmetics is slated to release a limited edition Andy Warhol beauty line countrywide in October 2012. International gals will have to wait until November 2012 for its debut.

    Nars Cosmetics founder François Nars will spearhead the collection's designs. According to a Women's Wear Daily report, we can expect "innovative packaging, formulas and shades" in a line that's meant to "evoke the cool, image-rich, character-laden world of Warhol."

    The line is officially licensed by the Andy Warhol Foundation. You'll have to wait until it gets closer to the launch date for releases about specific products and pricing. To hold you over in the meantime, we've heard that you can expect products inspired by Warhol's famed paintings and lively color choices.

  • AnnaSophia Robb Rocks Her Jammies (Maybe?) on the Set of 'The Carrie Diaries'

    Curious about The Carrie Diaries? We are too. Take a peek at these on-set pics of AnnaSophia Robb and let us know what you think!

    Well, that was fast (by Hollywood standards, that is): Less than a month after AnnaSophia Robb stepped into Sarah Jessica Parker's shoes as the one and only Carrie Bradshaw, The Carrie Diaries has already gone into production. And hey, look! Celebuzz got a hold of some set pics from the pilot!

    These photos were snapped on Wednesday. AnnaSophia certainly looks the part, with her naturally straight hair transformed into Carrie's wavy locks. But what on earth is she wearing? It looks kind of like pajamas, but I'm not totally sure. Mostly it looks like an oversized royal blue hoodie with white polka dots with a dress that looks kind of like a sweatshirt underneath. Here, take a peek:

  • 10 Actors Who Made Successful Comebacks (Pay Attention, Lindsay Lohan!)

    Now that we've all had time to get used to the idea of LiLo making a comeback, let's look at some good examples she might follow (we're looking at you, Robert Downey, Jr.!).

    Have we all had sufficient time to digest Lindsay Lohan's SNL appearance from a few weeks ago? Have we gotten if not comfortable with, than at least used to the idea that all signs are pointing to her attempting to make a big comeback? Good, because we've got some schooling to take care of. Namely, if LiLo is really serious about getting back to work, today, we're going to show her exactly how to do it.

    These 10 actors (well, 11 if you count the pair of twins as two separate people rather than a single entity, but you know what I mean) all had some pretty great highs early in their careers. Then they suffered some devastating lows. Some of them were quieter than others, and not all of the breakdowns were due to that nebulous, catch-all term "personal problems;" but

    Dear Mouthy Housewives,

    My 17 year-old son has decided he is going to start making his own decisions and stop living by my rules. This means he is going to continue to smoke pot when he's hanging out with his friends. I've restricted him three times already and began drug testing, but it doesn't help. Unless I lock him up and throw away the key, he said he will continue to get stoned because he likes the way

  • 3 Ways to Make Sure You're Not Stuck with Mr. Wrong

    Author Amy Beth O'Brien shares her tips on avoiding Mr. Wrong and finding Mr. Right.

    -PJ Gach, BettyConfidential.com

    woman opening a doorwoman opening a door

    There always seems to be three types of men: Mr. Right, Mr. Maybe and Mr. Wrong. How many times have you thought you found Mr. Right only to find out that after all that time, he's Mr. Wrong?

    Author Amy Beth O'Brien loves movies. She likens dealing with a relationship like watching a movie from the audience's perspective. "Everyone loves the movies," said O'Brien. "We get to lose ourselves in a story and live vicariously through the main character. I encourage women to be the main character in their own life story by stepping into their starring role as leading lady and stop playing extra or best supporting actress to someone else."

    Here are three tips that Amy Beth feels can help you not only avoid Mr. Wrong, but also help you take control over your own life.

    1. Embrace your inner screenwriter
