The Most Out-There Japanese Fashion from the Past 30 Years

We're always enthralled by the bold, cutting edge style that comes out of Japan. Makeup artist-turned-cosmetics giant Shu Uemera was a legend in his day -- a genius at creating groundbreaking, haute makeup looks with his eponymous line. "Future Beauty," an exhibit at the Seattle Art Museum, reminded us of his sharp, forward-thinking aesthetic. The show features 80 spectacular gowns by 31 top Japanese designers, including Issey Miyake and Junya Watanabe. "The exhibition shows how Japanese fashion design launched itself on the world stage in the 1980s. Japanese fashion designers at that time developed breathtaking aesthetic positions that subsequently influenced a younger generation of Western designers including Martin Margiela, Ann Demeulemeester and Alexander McQueen," said the SAM's curator of modern and contemporary art Catharina Manchanda.   read more


20 Best Drugstore Beauty Products

We can all agree -- there is something deeply satisfying about saving money, no matter how subatomic the amount.

You get kind of a rush, right? That's because knowing you're getting what you need for cheaper, for even pennies less, is a triumph. Now imagine snagging your beloved beauty essentials for a fraction of the price. If you're anything like us, saving a dead president or two on beauty products feels way better than saving on tomatoes. Are you with us?   See bargains

Secrets of Hollywood's Leading Men: Did You-Know-Who Get a Nose Job?

When I'm flipping through People's Sexiest Man Alive edition, I always wonder, 'Why can't I find a man who looks like this in the real world?' The answer: Many of them have had work done. And I can't really blame them -- it's their job to look good on the silver screen. Plenty of aging stars have admitted to getting plastic surgery (it seems as acceptable and expected as a second or third wife). But one look at some of these before/after pics and it's clear that not all male plastic surgery is a success.   read more


The Royal Baby Beauty Care Package for Kate & Will

Move over North West, there's a new star baby in town, and this one's royalty for real.

Impromptu beach day! That means you're scrambling to grab your bikini and chick lit for some sunning and guilty pleasure reading.
