MARCJACOBS.COMIn her much-anticipated pictorial in December, 40-year-old Kate Moss made Playboy seem ground-breaking, sophisticated and actually sexy for the first time in years. The pictures--dozens of them--were erotic, not crass, classic but not cliché, and already the stuff of posters and a T-shirt by Marc Jacobs (left).
But we must admit Kate had us scratching our heads. Don't get us wrong; we're huge fans. She's been on the cover of Allure no fewer than 9 times. But Playboy? Take a look at the list of the 50 or so other celebs who have answered the call to bare all for the men's magazine over the years, and it's not hard to imaging the thought process: Some arguably had something to prove (Farrah Fawcett at age 48), some were perhaps seduced by vanity (Denise Richards, Carmen Electra), and one in particular (Pamela Anderson, who has appeared a total of 13 times) clearly had nothing else better to do.

When the weather can only be described as "Holy F- It's Freezing Out," you're probably dressing with a few matters in mind: keeping your ears from snapping off, your ankles from turning blue, and the tears in your eyes from freezing on your lashes. And, "looking cute"? Not really a huge concern.
But, feeling like a dumpling as soon as you step indoors is a downer, especially for someone for whom style is a lifestyle and not just a hobby. The key to staying warm is in the details, and we've come up with a few clever tricks so you can trap in the heat while maintaining your killer outfit combos. Ahead, find 10 tips (and 30 shopping suggestions!) that'll help you dress warmer, not wider. And, even though these editorial images don't show models wearing tights, you know better than to brave the temps outside without at least a 50-denier pair, right?

woman wearing fur coatPETA has taken an interesting strategy for combating animal cruelty this season: They've teamed up with Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries to donate a ton of vintage minks to the homeless community in Detroit. Normally, the organization collects old furs from people who have converted from fur lovers to fur avoiders, and this year they decided to do something with that stash.

If you think this seems incredibly counter-intuitive, you're not alone. Ingrid E. Newkirk, the co-founder and president of PETA, responded to nobel by saying, "PETA can't bring the animals who were slaughtered to make these coats back to life, but we can send a message that only people truly struggling to survive have any excuse for wearing fur." So far, they've donated 100 furs to the residents of Detroit homeless shelter Bethlehem House.

Donato SardellaAs if we all didn't love Jennifer Lawrence enough already, in 2013 she charmed us with her reaction to being hit on by Jack Nickolson, brought us another round of Katniss badass-ery, and taught us many things about hair, makeup, and confidence. Let's go over the top five lessons in beauty from Ms. Lawrence, shall we?Lesson 1) When your hair is damaged, sometimes the best answer is to chop it off and start fresh instead of fighting with it.
Lesson 2) And once you do cut it, it just might give you the confidence to go bolder with your makeup choices.
Look 3) A pouf can elevate a simple ponytail--literally and figuratively.
Lesson 4) It's really OK to go makeup-free if you don't feel like getting all snazzed up. Even to a big event.And lesson 5) Bronzer isn't just for Kardashians. It might be time to bring it out of your makeup kit again.
Love this girl--so down-to-earth and fun to watch. Can't wait to see what she's got in store for us next year!
