We'll Miss You, Emerald: Pantone Announces Their 2014 Color Of The Year

We can't say for sure if Pantone's annual declaration of "Color of the Year" is just a novelty, or whether it has any actual influence on the decision-making of the minds behind our favorite fashion and beauty brands. Even if it seems a tiny bit arbitrary -- a designated color company choosing a color of the year, isn't that quaint? -- we're the first to admit that we're all eyes and ears when they make their announcement each season.   read more

Lana Del Rey Gets Weird in New Video

• Lana Del Rey made a rather bombastic 30-minute film called "Tropico," featuring John Wayne, Elvis, Jesus, and Marilyn Monroe among others. She plays Eve and model Shaun Ross plays Adam, or something. She's also Mary Magdalene. It's all very high concept. [Dazed Digital]   read more

Keira Knightley Recycles Her Wedding Dress (We Think)

Better Than Candy: A New Bra Claims To Curb Stress Eating

Stress-eating: it's what's for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. And, like, five to ten snacks in between. We'd long since accepted it as just a fact of life -- as sure as the sun shall rise, when the going gets tough, we're going to eat a pint of ice cream for dinner. With a side of kale, please? No, make that chips. We never thought for a second that maybe things didn't have to be this way, that maybe there was something we could do to combat it. Talk therapy? More exercise and vitamin D? No thanks -- we're thinking more like a hi-tech bra that helps to curb overeating caused by stress.   read more

Just Say No To A #Selfie Case For Your iPhone

Do you mind if we ask how, exactly, this entire "selfie" thing grew to its current immeasurable proportions? It's one thing -- one totally fine thing -- for us to take photos of ourselves looking cute and post them to social media, but the selfie craze has somehow become another beast entirely. I guess it's just one of those buzz words we all start using, and then we can't stop, and then suddenly everyone is saying it everywhere and the whole thing just gets so out of hand. See: "swag," "YOLO," "hater," and everything else we now cringe at the mere thought of ...So yeah, we're calling the official "jump the shark" moment on the selfie with this "#selfiecase." It's exactly what it sounds like -- an iPhone case designed "with your best selfie in mind," which translates to fingers posed in the universal "selfie" position. Before you ask, yes, the #selfie text is reversed, which makes it perfect for your next mirror shot. We don't care how many pictures you take of yourself, but we sure won't be letting any of our friends get caught with this not-so self-effacing selfie case. [Caseable]   read more

Selena Gomez Posts A Super Pretty Makeup-Free Selfie

• Oh shocker, Selena Gomez is stupidly gorgeous, even without makeup on.
