And The Size Women Are Happiest At Is ...

• Size matters, but it's not the size you think. It turns out women care about their dress size, but we're not all clamoring to be a tiny size zero. According to research commissioned by So Fabulous for Littlewoods.com, which is a plus-size clothing company (so yes, definitely consider the source), it's women who are a British size 16 -- an American size 12 -- are happiest with their appearance. A survey of 2,000 women found that a full 74 percent of size 12s claimed to be content with their size -- compared with just 42 percent of size 6 (that's an American size 2) women. Women surveyed said they most envied the bodies of Nigella Lawson, Beyonce, Kim Kardashian, Christina Hendricks and Adele. Yup, we wouldn't mind looking like Beyonce, either.

This past summer, the International Agency on Cancer Researched classified TCA as a suspected human carcinogen, and the state of California listed the acid on its state registry of toxic substances. Scientists are quick to say that they're not sure of the real risks of TCA yet, but that alone should be a cause for concern.   read more

Kate Bosworth Debuts Her New TopShop Collection

• Kate Bosworth just launched her second amazing collection for TopShop, and it's a doozy. The 46-piece collection is full of leather, leather, leather, in metallics and glossy whites. "The collection is tailored and classic," said Bosworth. "For fall, we wanted to create luxurious pieces with a strong minimalist approach.

Solange Shares Her Street Style Secrets

• Solange, no slouch in the style department, explains the secret of looking great in a photo: "It's like this weird generational thing with photo-taking, where it's all about looking natural, but you pose looking natural," she explains. "Like, 'I'm not paying attention, but I still look perfect.' Or 'I'm on my phone, but I don't make phone face.' All of those things I have no idea how to navigate through. I'm still learning my damn self. I just walk and try not to fall." A woman after our own heart. [StyleCaster]   read more
