Fringe Fest: Tassels Take Over Coachella

The only thing more fun about a trend making a comeback is when it is reinvented in a way that's so fresh, anyone can pull it off. Take fringe, for instance. The tasseled trim usually reserved for Western flair, Gatsby-esque flappers, and free-spirited hippies is reemerging with a chicer -- and, dare we say, almost classic -- aesthetic. Labels like Valentino and Celine gave the look staying power with the launch of their spring/summer collections, which featured patent leather wallets and boho bags with ornate fringe detailing. As predicted, the trickle-down tassel effect is flooding the music festival scene this year. "It" girls like Poppy Delevigne and Fergie showed off their version of fringe at Coachella -- making it the coolest revival since the cat-eye.   read more

Does Kate Upton Not-So-Secretly Hate Her Boobs?

The Makeup Line that Contains Every Shade of Summer

After a long winter of darkness (both outside and in my makeup routine) I'm ready for summer makeup collections full of light pastel washes and punchy brights. Enter Topshop Beauty's summer 2014 makeup collection and I'm head over heels in love with each and every piece. Topshop's new Sheer Lips, Lip Varnish and Lip Paints were inspired by the iconic lips of model Kate Moss (the perfect match for all the Kate Moss for Topshop fashions perhaps?). And while the lip colors are nothing short of wow-worthy in bold colors and both matte and glossy finishes, the pastel nail polishes in the summer makeup collection are perfectly understated. The Best part? Every piece is under $25. I'm making a vow right here and now to forsake pricey department store makeup (well, at least for now) and head straight to the mall for my summer beauty look.   read more
