Wasn't Selena Gomez just saying she's constantly being told she's "not sexy enough?" We can't imagine anyone will continue to say that after seeing the 21-year-old's photo shoot for Flaunt magazine.... Shot by Amanda de Cadenet, the photos feature Gomez lounging on a bed in lacy black lingerie, or an oversized sweater and donning a short black wig with blunt bangs. Gomez may not normally show as much skin as some of her peers in the music industry, but it's safe to say she can pull off sexy when she wants to. For more photos of Selena getting in touch with her sexy side, head over to Flaunt.
It's official: Pamela Anderson is a member of the Pixies.

He may not be the most down-to-earth designer, but even Karl Lagerfeld isn't a fan of too much Photoshop in fashion shoots. During a talk with actress Jessica Chastain at Lincoln Center last night,... the Chanel designer took a surprising stance on retouching, lamenting the common practice of Photoshopping models beyond recognition. According to Fashionista, Karl stated: "[We are] easily in a period of over-retouching... Some models [end up] look[ing] as if they are coming out of a funeral parlor, all life taken out of the face, I hate that." It's a somewhat surprising comment coming from Karl, since more often than not, he appears to be more out-of-touch with industry realities than in tune with them. He's dismissed the rampant issue of body and eating disorders in fashion, once remarking...
A day of competition includes meeting with a model, having your design inspected by a formidable panel and gaining some personal insight from a judge.
Last night's WSJ. Innovator Awards were all about breaking new ground, so it seemed only right to poll guests on innovations they've contributed to the world. Answers ranged from cookie recipes... (Karlie Kloss) to Instagrams (Constance Jablonski) to hairdos. "The top knot," said model Jessica Hart. "I've been doing that ... More
Sephora pulls Kat Von D shade from its shelves after name controversy
Let's face it. We all have two personalities. We are professionals when we are at work. And while at home, we are just us -- a fashionista, an artist, a city slicker, a tomboy or a bohemian goddess.... It's really when we're at home, for the majority of us, that our true style comes out. We shed our work 'uniform' for something far more familiar and comfortable. What if I told you that dividing your personal styles between work and home is a thing of the past? What if your weekend fashion and your work fashion became one? For everyone who struggles to find a personalized way to express themselves in their workplace, here are a few examples that can help you introduce your inner self into your work 'uniform', all while staying perfectly professional. Outfit 1: *SALE* pants - Blazer - *SALE*...
Anytime Anna Wintour is seen chatting up a Hollywood starlet the rumor mill starts churning about a possible Vogue cover. So when the editrix, who isn't known for her warm and fuzzy personality, was... spotted sharing a laugh and a photo with "12 Years a Slave" actress Lupita Nyong'o, it got us wondering if the Kenyan beauty would be gracing the glossy sometime soon. The faithful encounter took place Tuesday night in New York City where the two ladies were on hand for the 2013 Museum Of Modern Art Film benefit, "A Tribute To Tilda." The 30-year-old star, who stepped out in a Chanel Couture black metallic high-neck dress and silver double-breasted silver jacket, has some major sartorial skills -- which we're sure Anna has picked up on. Couple that with her stunning good looks and all signs...

Thoughts on Catching Fire, its media machine and the world at large. If you live in NYC and take the subway, you might have noticed lately that every time it stops, no matter where you are on the... train, Jennifer Lawrence is aiming an arrow at you. I'm sure the entire North American landscape is similarly blanketed with billboards and bus stop signs. I don't mind, in fact, I'm happy to see her. I usually can't sustain anticipation weeks in advance for a film, but Catching Fire's an exception. I devoured all three Hunger Games books, and though I don't know how a movie could live up to such phenomenal hype, I can't wait. The trailers look stunning. After finding out who's playing the new characters, I had to find out about their incredible costumes. A search led me to Capitol Couture. If...
Every great artist relies on their tools to help them achieve their vision. A makeup artist is no different. Whether you're a virgin experimenting with makeup for the first time or a senior artist... working your magic on models backstage at Fashion Week, you need at least a few key makeup brushes to create a beautiful look. While the pros know what they are doing, us regular folk could use a lesson or two on using brushes. MAC Cosmetics is one step ahead of us in the department. No, they aren't sending their artists to our front door (we wish!), but it is the next best thing. They have redesigned the makeup brush to make application effortless and consistent for everyone. Introducing: Masterclass Brush, the future of makeup brushes. The three-piece collection features a new brush head and...

It was a colorful week for fashion's most savvy snappers. Our feed was awash in color when InStyle brightened our day with a rainbow of plastic frames, while CR Fashion Book had a more abstract take... on vibrancy.

Joni Mitchell, you just turned 70, you forever young spirit, forever old soul. You still hold the monopoly on weepy music for a certain sort of lady. Many trendy It girls of today (Zooey Deschanel,... Mindy Kaling, Tavi Gevinson) are choosing you (Blue, particularly, "River," particularly) as their go-to chanteuse ... More
The question I get asked the most is, "What should I spend my money on?" A lot of us are on a budget. We have mortgages, bills and student loans to pay, and making a silly purchase (insert neon dress... I spent $600 last summer!?) is infuriating at best. It's also quite overwhelming, especially at the start of a new season not knowing what trends to follow, and quite honestly even where to start. The best way to do this is to break it down and assess each one in a practical way. If the key pieces are too much for you, try an accessory or use makeup to incorporate the trend into your look. The next trick is taking it from the runway and fitting it into real life. After all, fun as it is to see a stick thin, six-foot model chasséing down the runway in clear plastic armor wearing a feather...
It's not hard for a little nip and tuck to turn into a lifelong obsession. Just ask Justin Jedlica, a plastic surgery consultant who underwent his first procedure at the age of 18 and proceeded to get... 127 more. Jedlica stopped by HuffPost Live to explain how he would do whatever it took to fix his so-called flaws -- including pinching pennies. "It was something that for me was important, so I was always very frugal," he said. "I didn't do a lot of things my friends did. They wanted to go buy their cars and buy their stereo systems and spend their money on their clothes. Instead, I was drawn towards surgery." Once he had enough money, Jedlica explained that, as a male, he faced extra barriers to achieving his desired look: "It was also difficult to get doctors on the same page as me being a...
