What has our sly, cinnamon-haired friend Prince Harry been up to recently, now that his brother and sister-in-law spend their days changing diapers and gracing plebeian marathon runners with their presence?
Oh, you know, just normal prince-ly stuff, like preparing to spend 24 hours straight in a "cold tank" ahead of his upcoming 208-mile trek (!) to the South Pole in November to raise funds for rehabilitating injured servicemen. Harry and four compadres will be representing Britain in the race, in which they'll square off against a U.S. squadron and a combined Australia-Canada team (not sure why those two countries' teams are mashed together, but it's a kind of cute union, no?). The race is expected to take 21 days, which is 21 days he'll be far away from Vegas hotel rooms, which can only be a good thing.

Stella McCartney and Gwyneth PaltrowThough you'd be forgiven for assuming she'd already released a dozen clothing collections with her hands tied behind her back (all while bathing in a giant kale smoothie), Gwyneth Paltrow has never in fact launched a full collection. That is, until now, as WWD has revealed that Her Royal Goopness and bestie Stella McCartney are collaborating on a line of staples, which will be available exclusively on Goop.
The collection will include separates including "black wool trousers, black jeans, a black blazer, a grey knit jumpsuit and Stella McCartney's Beckett handbag in three neutral hues."
"These designs are not going to blow anyone away. They are staple pieces," McCartney told the magazine, clearly attempting some sort of low expectations fashion-Jedi mind trick.

If there's one thing every curvy chica should have in her closet, it's an awesome blazer. I know that shopping for these can be a pain. Believe me, I've been there. But don't you worry! There are some amazing plus size blazers out there! You just have to look for them (and try them on). And they aren't limited to just career wear either. Pair a blazer with your favorite denim, shorts, pencil skirt, dress, or vintage tee. Remember, there are no limits to fashion.

Pretty much the main difference between the fashion-hungry citizens of the The Hunger Games' Capitol City and the fashion-hungry women who regularly shop Net-a-Porter is that the former group is fictional, so the e-tailer is making a pretty smart move with its forthcoming "Capital Couture" line. The collection, created in partnership with the movie franchise's costume designer, Trish Summerville, will be based on some of the film's most stylish characters, like Katniss and Cinna, and will include jewelry, leather goods and sixteen ready-to-wear items.

A recent interview with Trish posted on the Capital Couture blog reveals that although the residents of Capitol City are known for flashy, over-the-top outfits, most of Capitol Couture's pieces will be black and "based on Katniss' looks for the Capitol galas." Fabric-wise, the designer promises lots of soft pliable leather, stretchy silk and a little bit of spandex, used for

.On Saturday, Kate Bosworth officially tied the knot with director Michael Polish in an intimate, romantic ranch ceremony in Philipsburg, Montana. Everything about the wedding was picturesque: the mountaintop setting, her two (yes, two) stunningly chic Oscar de la Renta gowns, her arrival via horse-drawn stagecoach, and pretty much every other detail of the day. And, if these glimpses into the nuptials weren't already making you green with envy, then the lowdown on her incredible wedding ring certainly will.

Kate gave us the exclusive deets on her exquisite, one-of-a-kind ornament, explaining, "The design of the wedding band is based off the design of the engagement ring, which is a 1920's Art Deco design."
"On the engagement ring, there are two delicate baguettes supporting the main diamond," she added. "We wanted to create a wedding band that incorporated 12 of these diamond baguettes for each month of the year."

I definitely wouldn't consider myself the super adventurous type when it comes to my personal style, so when certain trends get really popular I tend to hide away in my leggings and black tunic and judge from a distance. For the most part it isn't that I think the trends are just god-awful - I actually admire most new trending styles when I see them on other people - but I always think to myself "I couldn't get away with that!" But now, as long as I'm staying true to myself and my style, I will give them a shot (in the dressing room, at least) and most of the time I end up loving it. Here are 7 trends that I couldn't get on board with right away, but have become staples of my wardrobe. - By Abi Porter

Finding the perfect jeans is at the top of most women's fashion wish list, but how do you avoid falling for the worst jeans? What's flattering on one woman may be truly tragic on another. Thankfully, there are ways to avoid these style grenades. "The biggest mistake women make when buying jeans is being in denial of their real size and choosing styles that are too small," style expert Lindsay Albanese told Yahoo Shine. As a spokesperson for T.J.Maxx and Marshalls, she suggests shopping for denim in department stores since they offer a range of on-trend styles and washes to flatter every woman's figure. Another denim red flag: "If you put them on and you feel that something is a bit off, choose another style," says Albanese. "You want to select jeans you feel you can do anything in." Read on to discover the worst jeans for your body type, and more flattering options to look for. By Joanna Douglas, Yahoo Shine Senior Fashion and Beauty Editor

Who needs Daniel Day Lewis as Abraham Lincoln when you can have Gina Gershon as Donatella Versace? Lifetime just released an image of the actress in the role of the fabulously Euro-trashy designer for its upcoming TV movie “House of Versace” — and the transformation is scary good.Gershon, 51, best known for her campy flop/cult flick, “Showgirls,” in which she played a lesbian cougar to Elizabeth Berkeley’s Vegas kitten, told the New York Post of 58-year-old Versace, “Surprisingly enough we’ve never met, though we have a lot of mutual friends. I’ve played people [on-screen] before who are still living and I’ve always met them … but I’m kind of glad I never met Donatella. She’s certainly a larger-than-life character.”
You can say that again. The plot, which is based on the book “House of Versace: The Untold Story of Genius, Murder, and Survival” chronicles the aftermath of the brutal murder of her brother, fabled designer Gianni Versace, in 1997. Although his sister became the new faceRead More »from Donatella Versace Played By Gina Gershon, Yes Please
