Am totally biased about this hair. Because this is how I wore mine to Duana’s wedding two weeks ago. Except instead of one braid on each side I went with two very thin ones, for a total of four, that met at the back of my head under beachy waves. Flower child! It was my favourite style of ALL TIME in my entire life forever and ever. Full Article

All Nina Dobrev style articles on this site are always prefaced with “I love Nina Dobrev”. Because I often don’t love what Nina Dobrev is wearing. At Comic-Con this year though, Nina was all good. Every look worked. The thing about Nina is that she seems to like her sparkles. There’s a little figure skater in there who can’t be suppressed. Full Article

I could see this on Lea Michele. Not feeling it on Cobie Smulders. Are the proportions all wrong? Between where the breasts sit and where the cut-outs are, it doesn't look right. I wonder if this is a short girl's dress. Also, gross red shoes.  Full Article

I start every single morning with one serving of hemp hearts in or on whatever I am eating for breakfast.  These tiny little seeds are the easiest way to increase your daily intake of Omega-6 and Omega-3.  You can only get these Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) through food such as eggs, fish, fish oils and some nuts and seeds and your body can not function without them. Full Article

Now arguably the biggest Canadian who shows in London ...And supported by the Princess Kate. And all up in the florals before the florals became the thing. Or maybe starting the floral thing... There has been a lot of floral, as you know, but to me, BY FAR, these are the most beautiful prints we’ve seen coming down the runway including those from Paris and New York. Full Article

Another Canadian showing in New York ...I know the floral invasion is not for everyone. But the pattern on some of these pieces is gorgeous. And contemporary. This is all Duana. I wish it could be all me.  Full Article

Carpets & Candids: Acid Wash on the young

Shenae Grimes is 22 years old. So if she wants to show up in acid wash jean shorts with 15 rat-tatty bracelets on her wrist and some sort of mustard coloured a little bit 80s coat, with her toned legs tapering into booties, yeah, it’s actually not an intolerable look. I’m not saying it’s ending up on a best dressed list or whatever but compared to some of the all time worsts from, say, Jennifer Garner, I’d take this, even pushing 40. Full Article

Linda Evangelista was photographed in New York yesterday with Salma Hayek’s daughter’s half-brother Augustin. God how I love her the way she wears her hair. And God do I wish I could wear boots like that on my stumpy legs. I just find that the over the knee situation can be tricky with certain heights and shapes, you know?  I mean, we’re talking about one of the original supermodels here. Full Article
