• An A To Z Guide To This Year's Best Holiday Gifts

    Gift guide season is one of our favorites. For editors, it offers us the chance to dream while also filling out our own personal gift lists. Which we're grateful for because whether we realize it or not, it's easy to fall into the same gift-buying routine. Unless someone's hinted at exactly what they wants, we hit up the same stores (usually on Black Friday) and buy the same safe presents in lieu of the unique. Say sayonara to that routine because this year, it’s time to flex those creative...

  • "Mid-Lights" Is L.A.'s Coolest Winter Hair Color Trend

    It's easy to assume that the cool girl you see standing at the crosswalk with a chic cream-colored turtleneck and the most stunning hair color — a deep mahogany at the roots that spills into shiny, sun-kissed caramel colors through the ends — spends more than your paycheck at the coolest L.A. salon every eight weeks. Must be nice, you think.

  • Live Like Cameron Diaz In The Holiday With These Coziest Airbnb Rentals

    Some stay home for the holidays, while others prefer to flee for a little trip away. This year, instead of leaving cold weather behind for tropical vacations on the beach, we're envisioning an escape to a charming countryside oasis — specifically, one that mirrors Iris Simpkins' (played by the luminous Kate Winslet) abode in seasonal film favorite, The Holiday. For those unfamiliar with this VIP piece of festive movie gold, Winslet's character lives in a cozy cottage that's nestled into the...

  • How To Deal With Skin Tags, According To Derms

    There are certain things you should never ask the Internet — paramount among them is medical advice. Take the seemingly harmless query: What to do about a skin tag?

  • 17 Pearl Engagement Rings If Diamonds Aren't Your Thing

    Diamond engagement rings are cool and all, but after nearly 550 years in the spotlight (the first known diamond engagement ring was given to Mary of Burgundy by Archduke Maximillian of Austria in 1477), we're due for a change. So, this winter proposal season, we're placing our bets on a new star in the ring department: pearls. They might not be the first thing you think of, but pearls are far from second best.

  • Emma Stone's Blonde Hair For The Favourite Required 3 Separate Dye Jobs

    There's no doubt that we are obsessed with British royalty, both in the flesh and in film. It's hard to even count exactly how many times we've watched the stories of Queen Elizabeth II, King Henry, or Queen Victoria play out on screen. But out of all the biopics and miniseries, there's one queen that is often left out: Queen Anne.

  • Fans Think Ariana Grande Revealed The Reason She Cut Her Hair — & It's Not What You Think

    Five short days ago, Ariana Grande revealed something big on Instagram. No, it wasn't an engagement ring, a forearm tattoo, or a new song — it was a haircut. The queen of pop music and shady tweets debuted the short new look (sans ponytail!) on her feed and it's since racked up almost five million likes. When we asked her hairstylist Josh Liu about the change he not only said it was legit (read: not a wig), but that it was for "a new project." It certainly sounded mysterious, but it's all making...

  • CDC Advises Against Eating Any Romaine Lettuce After E. Coli Outbreak

    Put down that salad fork, everyone. The Centers for Disease Control have just released a pretty drastic warning, advising people in the U.S. and Canada not to eat any romaine lettuce, no matter where it's from. This is due to an outbreak of Shiga toxin-producing E. coli, which has so far sickened 32 people in 11 states, with 13 landing in the hospital. In Canada, another 18 people in two provinces were also infected.

    Black sweaters, white sweaters, tan sweaters, gray sweaters — no sweater collection is complete without at least one of each. But after checking the essentials off your list, there's always room for a few pieces that aren't quite so classic. That's where pastel sweaters come in. More and more, brands from Isabel Marant to Nanushka are opting against traditional, muted shades, and instead designing knits with more color in mind.
