Just about everyone has something they hate about their skin. For me, it's the unflattering combination of redness and large pores. But when I dab my cheeks with this cream, which has the consistency of pudding, it spackles in the holes AND erases the rosy splotches without making my skin look pancaked or suffocated. I'm in love.Read More »from The Single Product for Perfect Skin

Why: Standing out in a room full of Michael Kors-clad models and celebrities isn't easy (Kors, the designer, presented former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton with a community service award and dressed everyone from Clinton to Iman, Jennifer Hudson and Hilary Swank). A clean-lined day-glo dress and Kloss's elegant stature do the trick.

What Lies Beneath? For some of the world's best-dressed women, the answer is nothing. We get to the bottom of the underwear-free trend.
From left: Anne Hathaway's pointy Prada, in February; Gwyneth Paltrow's big reveal, in April.
Media scrutiny of Gwyneth Paltrow's fashion choices is nothing new, but throughout a circuit of public appearances this spring, the clothes she had on her person attracted less attention than the ones she had apparently left at home: her bra and panties. At the Los Angeles premiere of Iron Man 3, the actress was extensively photographed in a sheer Antonio Berardi gown that showcased several inches of her Tracy Anderson-toned derriere. (The look introduced a new term into the sartorial lexicon: "side butt.") Later that month, when Paltrow accepted an award at the Gene Siskel Film Center gala in Chicago dressed in a white Alexander McQueen minidress, the blogosphere had a field day discussing her prominent nipplitis and unsupported bosom. And a few days afterward, there she was again, letting it all hang out in an ivory Prabal Gurung halter
Emma Watson Looks Towards the Future The actress showed a simple white dress doesn't have to be boring.

What: An ivory silk gazaar dress (fresh off the spring 2014 runway) and off-white embroidered minaudiere, both by J. Mendel; patent metallic Manolo Blahnik for J. Mendel booties.
Why: Watson adds a futuristic touch to an otherwise classic ensemble in honor of this outer space film.
From Heidi Klum's legendary out-of-this-world (and out of her skin) costumes for her annual fete to Roberto Cavalli done up as Karl Lagerfeld, here's proof that big personalities, big costume budgets, and big Halloween parties yield some truly amazing, and amazingly bizarre results.

Lately, I've been waking up with Gisele. Every day, one of the world's highest-paid supermodels greets me with a beaming smile and an ebullient "Good morning!"-sometimes while she's striking a yoga pose. It matters naught that the beautiful Brazilian wouldn't recognize me if she fell off the catwalk into my lap. And I'm not concerned that a half-million other people are in on our conversation. Gisele and I are Instagram buddies, and that means we have a connection.
That social media offers stars a middle-man-free link to their fans is old news-even the Pope (@Pontifex) is directly ministering to the flock via Twitter. What has changed is the extent to which celebrities, who used to claim in interviews that they wanted to protect their privacy, are prepared to grant unfettered access to their lives, homes, and misadventures.

Lorde: A Pure Heroine The 16-year-old New Zealander is the real deal.
Even as her first hit single "Royals" was setting the record for the longest run by a female artist at the top of Billboard's Alternative Chart earlier this year, turning her into an international pop star overnight, Ella Yelich-O'Connor, who is better known as Lorde, was still attending high school in suburban Auckland, New Zealand. "There's no sense of celebrity in New Zealand," says the 16 year-old, at her hotel in Los Angeles, where she was in between photo shoots. "Maybe if I'd grown up in L.A., I'd feel different about fame. It's cool, but I never really cared about it that much."
With her angled cheekbones, dramatic celadon eyes, and epic mass of curls, Lorde is a pre-Raphaelite vision for modern times. Likewise, her debut album Pure Heroine, out September 30, is a blend of futurism and timeless beauty, written by a precocious teen clever enough to draw parallels in

With natural hair all the rage, one blow-out addict dares to ditch the dryer.
See W's Slideshow of Crazy Hairstyles Here
Like most addictions, my dependence on haute hairstylists didn't develop overnight. The initial blow(out) was struck almost 20 years ago, by Brian Devine at Garren New York, who somehow managed to make me look like a Pantene model for my 10-year high-school reunion. A few black-tie events later, I was well on my way to being hooked. A fix every month increased to one a fortnight, and pretty soon, nary a week went by without a couple of trips to the salon. Things got so bad that I avoided traveling to cities where I didn't have a hair connection. But inevitably, all the pulling, pressing, and crisping took a toll on my tresses-not to mention my bank account. At upwards of $100 a hit, my habit was adding up. It was time for an intervention.
