By Sara Bodnar
Model Anja Rubik got more than a few stares when she hit the red carpet at the Met Gala with a slit up to her hip. It was pretty obvious to, well, everyone that she wasn't wearing underwear. Stepping out sans panties is a frisky fashion move more and more chicks like Anja are daring to try. But it's not exactly a new trend; some of history's hottest sex goddesses, such as Cleopatra and Jean Harlow, reportedly went au naturel beneath their clothes.

Researchers at the University of Wisconsin studied guy-girl friendships of more than 400 adults and found that, even though men and women can be buddies, guy friends are more likely to be attracted to us than we are to them.

Scientists also discovered that men are more likely than women to overestimate how attracted their female friends are to them. So your best guy friend might secretly think you have a thing for him-even when you don't. Annoying, we know.
Not only that, guys who were in relationships weren't any less likely than single dudes to say that they find their female friends attractive or that they'd actually like to date them. Women, on the flip side, were also equally likely to be attracted to their guy friends, but those who were in relationships were way less likely to say they'd actually date them.

Swept-Back Center Part
A center part makes a basic pony feel cool-and a tinge studious. For meetings when you need to look super-professional, this is your go-to.
Classic Sleek Strands
Stick-straight hair, is a fail-safe style, since it always looks 100 percent polished.
Get mileage out of yesterday's blowout by parting your hair on the opposite side (hello, instant volume!) and securing it with a bobby pin.
Give yourself a raise-literally. Here's a way to cheat it: Pull the top half of your hair straight up over your head-as if you were creating a super-high half-pony-and secure the elastic halfway between your roots and your tips, so it's very loose. Then stuff the ends of your strands, along with the elastic, underneath the hair at the crown. Secure with a few bobby pins to create a modern-looking bouffant.

Liar Move #1
Liar Move: He wraps his ankle around the leg of a chair.
Busted: "Pulling off a lie is stressful, so when a guy is masking the truth, his body will tense up," says body-language expert Janine Driver. "As a result, he'll take a more rigid stance.

Rule #1: Wear Sunscreen Daily
Choose one that is broad-spectrum and also has anti-aging ingredients to keep your skin looking youthful.
Rule #2: Sport Your Sunnies
Try to always wear sunglasses with a UV 400 rating, since they offer up 100 percent UV protection. There's new research that shows even eyes can be sunburned, causing damage that could possibly lead to skin cancer.
Rule #3: Outdoors? Re-Apply SPF Every 2 Hours
This is especially true when you're engaging in sports, since sunscreen can sweat off, leaving you unprotected. Also, be sure to slather up after swimming in the pool or ocean, since formulas tend to wash off in the water.
