You'll Never Guess Christian Siriano's Hidden Talent

What's Christian Siriano's claim to fame? Besides winning season four of "Project Runway" and becoming the series' youngest champ, Siriano has launched his own line (that is sold at Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus, no less), created an affordable line of shoes and handbags for Payless and hooked us with news that he's launching a fragrance later this year. Then there's his impressive list of celebrity clientele. Siriano regularly dresses A-listers like Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Taylor Swift, Heidi Klum, Nicki Minaj and Victoria Beckham, who gladly don his playfully ornate gowns and always-interesting red-carpet looks. We sat down with Siriano to talk about what makes him tick and exactly how long it takes him to style his incredible hair.   read more

1) Total Beauty: Who are your beauty icons?
Sofia Vergara: It's always been, since I was a young girl, Sophia Loren, because I think she is the perfect example of a woman who knows what works for her. That's one of the things I always give as a tip for women. The secret is knowing what looks good on her or what works on her body, so she can call attention to those good things ... I think that's the secret of a woman that looks great. Sophia Loren has been wearing her same makeup for decades. She knows what works for her ... You see her now [in her 70s] and she still looks amazing.   read more

Julie Bowen Can't Figure Out Eyelash Curlers, Either

You may know Julie Bowen as the mom with the perfectly bouncy blowout on "Modern Family," but more often than not, family takes precedence over primping for the Emmy Award-nominated actress.

And We Thought We Couldn't Love Olivia Wilde Any More

Sonia Kashuk: We'll Have What She's Having

Makeup artist Sonia Kashuk is a force to be reckoned with. The Minnesota native stormed the New York fashion scene in the '80s, her unforgettable looks quickly making her the go-to face maker for supermodels and celebrities alike. An entrepreneur at heart, Kashuk wasn't content to simply create the most coveted looks for magazines like Harper's Bazaar and Vogue. She wanted to make them accessible to the masses, too, through affordable luxury products (something that was unheard of at the time). To call her an innovator is putting it mildly. With so many awards and accolades under her belt, you might think her huge success would put her out of touch with the everyday woman. But awards and magical styling abilities aside, she's a sucker for creating collections that women love -- and it's this uncanny ability to know what we want before we even do that keeps us clamoring to know what she'll be up to next.   read more

Janelle Monae: The Misfit Everyone Wants to Imitate

Janelle Monae is -- in one word -- a firecracker. She dances like a maniac. Her songs are essentially four-minute parties, and her style manages to be simultaneously classic and bold. In a sea of ball gowns and finger waves on the red carpet, Monae stands out in a tuxedo and pompadour hairstyle (a hairstyle she does herself, by the way). She's a true individual. And ever since she hit the scene in 2010, Hollywood has become exponentially cooler.   read more
