Faux fur has come a long way from looking cheap and feeling coarse to looking luxurious and feeling nearly as supple as the real deal. While some people don't mind wearing fur, others cringe at the thought, which is why the faux fur industry is booming. And while, understandably, real fur is warm, faux fur is often woven with synthetics like nylon and polyester that keep you toasty as well. However, today I'm talking fur and faux fur handbags, and unless you're also using them as a muff to keep your hands warm, we are more concerned with looks and functionality than temperature control. Fur handbags have been popping up on all the luxury sites, so I thought I'd search the web for some more affordable doppelgangers for those who not only are appalled by the real stuff, but by the sky-high price tags they come with. Click through for 7 fur handbags and their faux furry doppelgangers! -By Maegan Tintari

It's true that illuminizing skin essentially needs to start from within: You need to eat right, drink at least eight glasses of water a day and get a good night's sleep for your skin to look its best. But on days where you feel like time isn't on your side, don't assume healthy-looking skin is a hopeless feat. We have a few miracle-workers that will make you look brighter-just in time for your next holiday party, date night or for a glowy everyday look.

Getty ImagesT minus one day to go until your New Year's Eve bash and do you know what you're wearing? If you're like me, the answer is "ah, no!" (Maybe I should re-read Avery's easy NYE fashion trends round-up, huh?) Well, look no further than the supreme Beyoncé--who hit the Reign nightclub with hubby Jay-Z over the weekend--in a sporty-glam outfit that just might be what I'm looking for...

While yes, cozy-chic sweatshirts are perfect for a Monday after a long weekend, they can also be a fun and inventive idea for New Year's Eve. Just make sure the top showcases a touch of flashy, celebratory detail--like the paillette-emblazoned sleeves and funky graphics on Beyoncé's Givenchy top--and style it to your liking. Whether you're going all out diva-rocker like Bey (leather leggings and another pair of hot, hot, over-the-knee boots, yes, please) or a cute pleated mini-skirt and flat loafers for a sporty spice vibe, you'llRead More »from The Cutest Last Minute Outfit Idea for Your New Year's Eve Party

Getty ImagesThis Christmas, in honor of baby Prince George's first holiday, Queen Elizabeth II invited all her nearest and dearest royals to her country house, Sandringham, in King's Lynn, Norfolk. Of course, Prince George's mom and dad, Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton and Prince William, were on hand, and we caught up with them on their way to church. Kate Middleton wore a tartan Alexander McQueen dress coat on Christmas Day--a repeat look from when she visited her alma mater in 2012--paired with a hat from Gina Foster.

Unless your plans are watching the ball drop wearing pajamas (which I fully condone), there's quite a lot of planning that goes into New Year's Eve. While I can't help you with the dress--I'm still trying to figure that out myself--I can provide makeup inspiration courtesy of three sexy celebrities. Even better is that they're super simple, so you can spend less time primping and more time popping bottles.
Bright Pink Lipstick. This is hands down the prettiest fuchsia lipstick look I have ever seen--and I've seen quite a few. I think it's the freshness of Kate Bosworth's skin, the creaminess of the formula she's wearing, and the darkness of her lashes. For a similar lip shade, try MAC Lipstick in Girl About Town, CoverGirl Lip Perfection lipstick in Eternal, or Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet in L'Exubérante. Swipe it on straight from the tube, but then take a Q-tip and run it along the perimeter of your mouth.

WireImage Did you guys see Solange at the Falls Festival in Australia? I swear I did a double take at her gorgeous, butt-length strands. Usually, I'm not into super-straight hair but Solange pulls it off like a pro. But the surprising secret to her straight-as-a-rail strands? Volume.
Solange's version of volume is made up of hundreds of tiny little braids, but unless you've got eight hours (or more) to sit in a salon chair, you'll probably have to pass on the plaits. Instead, up your volume with clip-in extensions that are heat-style-friendly (which it should say on the packaging).

You can either rock a straight line of extensions (I've heard great things about Luxy Hair), or you can choose a set that clips around your crown, which are my personal fave. In fact, I swear by my Hairdo for E! Liveextensions, which you can heat-style up to 350 degrees. They look totes natural and set you back about $100 (yeah, a little pricey,
