(0) Comments | Posted October 2, 2015 | 2:29 PM

Kylie Jenner's $1,600 beauty regimen is definitely shocking. But, can you blame her? She's a budding beauty mogul

Jenner, who recently graced the cover of Galore magazine's Bombshell Generation issue -- which was shot by the infamous photographer Terry Richardson -- also took a moment to dish on her top fashion and beauty tips in a short-but-sweet behind-the-scenes video

In the one-minute clip, the reality TV star talks about the things she keeps handy, like Purell and sunglasses. Jenner, who is constantly changing her hair color, reveals her favorite hue. And it's no surprise that when it comes to her personal style, the celeb is inspired by her uber famous sisters -- but she also notes that Kanye's has been a "huge" influence. Join the club

Serena Williams And Amy Schumer To Star In 2016 Pirelli Calendar

(0) Comments | Posted September 22, 2015 | 12:26 PM


When Serena Williams revealed on Twitter that she would be featured in the 2016 Pirelli calendar, we knew that "fashion's sexiest calendar" would be getting a whole lot hotter.

And while the annual project is known for its nude and nearly nude images of the world's most beautiful women and supermodels, this year the calendar is moving away from that overtly sexy aesthetic to an exceptionally inspiring one. 

Famed photographer Annie Leibovitz was tapped to shoot the 2016 calendar and has captured a list of powerful women that includes actress Amy Schumer, director Ava Duvernay, singer and activist Yoko Ono, supermodel Natalia Vodianova, author Fran Lebowitz and blogger-turned-actress Tavi Gevinson, just to name a few. 

“I started to think about the roles that women play, women who have achieved something. I wanted to make a classic set of portraits," Leibovitz said in a press release. " I thought that the women should look strong but natural and I decided to keep it a very simple exercise of shooting in the studio. This calendar is so completely different. It is a departure. The idea was not to have any pretense in these pictures and be very straightforward.”

We can't wait to see the finished product. But in the meantime, here are a few behind-the-scenes photos from the amazing shoot.

Lupita Nyong'o Takes Our Breath Away On Her Second Vogue Cover

(0) Comments | Posted September 17, 2015 | 10:43 AM

They say lightning doesn't strike twice, but it certainly has for actress Lupita N'yongo. The stunning "Star Wars" actress has landed her second Vogue cover and has rendered us speechless.

Dressed in a gold-and-crimson Valentino Haute Couture dress, the 32-year-old star and her flawless skin are aglow on the October cover, which was captured by photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. 

In the cover story, the Kenyan beauty tells writer Plum Sykes about her first encounter with wearing couture clothes. “I didn’t know the power of couture until I tried on a couture dress. It made me cry." 

What brings us to tears is the fact that Vogue not only decided to put Nyong'o on its cover for the second time, but that it also comes directly after the glossy's September issue that was graced by Beyoncé

 The significance of a black woman immediately following another black woman on the cover of the most influential fashion magazine in the world is not lost on us. In American Vogue's 123-year existence, there have only been 34 covers (see slideshow below) that have featured a black cover model or celebrity -- excluding group shots. 

And if the cover wasn't enough, N'yongo also got the "73 Questions" treatment. In the awesome 5-minute video, the "Twelve Years A Slave" actress walks around the Vogue fashion closets while talking about her favorite things -- like her fashion icon, which happens to be her mother. Oh, and her favorite drink happens to be pineapple juice, which she'd like to have with ballerina Misty Copeland one day. Amazing.  

Check it out above and make sure to grab the October issue when it hits newsstands on Sept. 22.

The Emmys Best Dressed List Is Full Of Surprises

(0) Comments | Posted September 11, 2015 | 6:36 PM

The stars turned it out at the 2015 Emmys. The red carpet featured gorgeous dress after gorgeous dress, and it was difficult to pick our favorite looks. 

Check out the best-dressed stars at the Emmys below and let us know if you agree with our picks. 

Claire Danes in Prada

The unexpectedly cool chain straps and detailing on this sparkly gown make it a best-dressed no-brainer. 

Kerry Washington in Marc Jacobs

 Yes. Yes. YES! Washington is a glittering goddess in this flashy frock .


Christina Hendricks in Naeem Khan

Highlighting her curves in metallic was a very smart move. We just love Hendricks' head-turning style. 

 Lady Gaga in Brandon Maxwell

It's rare we see Lady Gaga in a simple black dress, but she should definitely rock one more often. This pared down look is perfection.

Laverne Cox in Calvin Klein

The cutouts on this teal gown are both sexy and sophisticated -- a rare combination. And the "Orange Is The New Black" actress' soft honey blonde tresses add even more subtle glam. 

Sarah Paulson in Prabal Gurung

Black and blue ... and fab all over! This eye-catching gown is perfect from shoulder to toes. 


Uzo Aduba in Jonathan Cohen

One word comes to mind when gazing upon Aduba in this gown: Regal. The beautiful actress looks like TV royalty.
