OMG! Gisele Bundchen Gets Naked For Paris Vogue November 2013 Issue

Just when we thought Kim Kardashian's newest, over-exposed butt shot was too much for the world to see, now we have celebrated supermodel Gisele all naked, except for her carefully placed hands.

Gisele Bundchen strips down for Paris Vogue's November 2013 issue.

And there we were, placing judgment on Kim K's selfie, and remarking that the amazing physique of Gisele Bundchen would never be shamelessly put on display.

So, we apologize to all the great Kim K fans. It looks like just about EVERY female celeb is getting down + dirty these days. Clothing, or not much of it, is apparently NOT required.

Gisele fans would probably argue that the iconic model's nakedness is done artistically in a magazine as part of her job, and that her photos are NOT selfies.

What can we say...From Miley to Kim to Gisele, nakedness is pretty common at the moment.

Just remember, ladies, when you put your naked self out there, be prepared for the criticism that usually follows.

Some critics are already saying that Gisele Bundchen is TOO skinny to be showing that all off.

We're staying out of that one, this time.

For more Gisele details, check out Vogue Paris.

Newlywed Kate Bosworth: This Trendsetter Gains Chic New Style

We have to say...actress Kate Bosworth was a vision in black as she and new husband Michael Polish walked the red carpet Monday evening at the New York City premiere of their new film, Big Sur.

We know....the gorgeous, blonde star is very thin, and there are critics out there who are bothered by her ultra tiny frame, BUT---we think she looks beautiful. Kate has emerged with a chic, new style.

We believe that she is a classy trendsetter.

And look at the intricate 'spinal plaiting' that her stylist created for the movie's premiere. Wow! We can see some faux hair woven throughout, but it's stunning, and Kate looks great!

She looks super glam She's hitting all the right notes with her classic makeup, sophisticated jewelry, and elegant Christopher Kane gown.

And take a peek at the beauty walking hand-in-hand with her suave, movie director husband earlier in the day. They are dressed perfectly for the big city.

Such style!

LOVE is in the air!!

All The Girls Buzzing About Maybelline's New Color Whisper Lip Color

We love drugstore makeup.

There...We admit it. We also love high-end cosmetics. Don't get us wrong. But there's nothing bad about buying brands like Maybelline. Most of us do, and enjoy putting it on.

You've read about our love for Great Lash mascara.  Always adored it, and have the familiar pink + green tube in our makeup bag at home.

Now, we're interested in the new beauty product Maybelline has been advertising lately.

It's called, Color Whisper by Color Sensational. And this stuff comes in 20 amazing shades.
Maybe it's the pretty Cameron Diaz-look-a-like model that is luring us in. Good advertising can seduce us all. But we like the natural softness of these brand new gel-color lip balm/lipsticks. There's nothing heavy about them.

Maybelline describes them this way:
Pure color pigments suspended in a weightless gel.
No heavy waxes or oils.
Soft, sexy gel-color.

And look at all these shades...from Petal Rebel, the one the model is wearing, and also shown in the tube below, to darker shades like A Plum Prospect.

If you HATE heavy lipsticks + glosses, then these new Color Whispers are just that---soft + natural.

A tube will set you back about $7.49.

Not bad for a little lip color, ladies.

Check them out here.

Mariah + J-Hud: The Long + Short Of It At The BET Black Girls Rock Awards

There seems to be 2 hairstyle looks these days for the red carpet:

The super long + the super short.

Take a peek at last night's BET Black Girls Rock Awards show. There's Mariah with bigger, faux hair than ever! And J-Hud chopping off her long, dark locks into a cute, chic pixie. We're seeing a lot of this on famous celebrities.

While the Kardashian sisters keep on wearing their Rapunzel-like long, wavy dos, others have gone for the big chop----Jennifer Hudson, Alicia Keys, Giuliana Rancic, Beyoncé, Natalie Portman and Rihanna, to name a few.

We like both the long + short of it all. Super long, glorious hair is quite sexy, but so is super short + chic !

The only thing we object to here, is Mariah Carey's midriff-baring ensemble. It's just not working for her thicker waistline at the moment. .

Kim K Wears White Lace For Vegas Birthday Bash: K-Sisters + Kris Don Black

Kim Kardashian has ALWAYS looked lovely in white, and that is the color she chose for her belated birthday party in Las Vegas last night. A figure-hugging, white lace, bustier dress.

It's too bad the most famous TV reality star chose NOT to smile during the celebration.

Her makeup has taken a more natural turn, ever since she went blonde a couple of months ago. Gone is the smoky eye and dark, bold brows.

Critics have been quick to point out that the media darling has had more cosmetic enhancement, either through fillers or plastic surgery. We believe that Kim K looks the same. It's the bland blonde shade that is making her look washed-out and harder, if you will.

We think she will make her smart return to her signature raven locks within a few more weeks from now.

The thing most folks are recognizing on Kim K is her sad expression, even after having a healthy, gorgeous baby girl, a recent, incredible marriage proposal from rap star Kanye West, and dropping a lot of post-baby pounds.

So, what's up with the sexy, new Mama? We're not sure.
Now, let's look at Kris, Khloe + Kourtney all dressed in black for Kim's 33rd birthday.

Not liking ANY of the black ensembles that her loving sisters + Mom have chosen. Maybe, trying too hard?

If you'd like to copy Kim K's white lace dress, here's a cheaper version we think that's just as pretty. It's a bit more covered up, but STILL sexy.

We found this one for $99 here.

We happen to like leave-in hair products, especially if they really work. And we think you would like this one. Sure, it's a bit pricey, be we found a tube for $23.95, and a little goes a long way.

It's called 10 Silk ExpressIn10sives Leave-In Conditioner, and you can get it here.
Hate the frizzies? Who doesn't?!

Make Your Makeup Last and Last With This!

Makeup. Many of us really enjoy wearing it. But  a problem a lot of us share is in the staying power of a foundation, concealer or blush, for instance.

After about 4 hours, that makeup has left the building, as the saying goes. Now you've got a greasy complexion, or maybe an even drier, duller face.

Getting makeup to last + look fresh is a challenge. But now we have a cheap solution.

You've got to try NYX Makeup Setting Spray ($8.00, at

What we LOVE about the setting spray is its 2 choices. It comes in MATTE or DEWY. Whatever your skin type thirsts for, you've got your answer. Since our face is OILY, we would select the MATTE for a shine-free finish.

Our friend Paula has a dry complexion, so she would prefer a soft glow for her face.

Either way--- we think this NYX Makeup Setting Spray is worth the $8.00!

"Glee's" Lea Michelle made an appearance at the Elle Women in Hollywood event last evening. 

The very slender star wore her dark brown locks smoothed off her forehead.

We mention Lea Michelle today, as we just noticed her natural, full brows.

Take a closer look below:

If you want a fuller, natural-looking brow and there's no way you can grow them like hers, then FAKE it, ladies.

Try this---The #1 brow & liner pencil in the U.S.

Believe it or not, it's Maybelline Expert Eyes Twin Brow & Eye Pencils. And super cheap at for just $2.99!!

Heidi Klum Shows Off Some Blunt Bangs At JFK Airport

Model Heidi Klum always takes fashion + beauty to a whole new level. She loves hot trends, edgy style, and isn't afraid to take on a unique look.

There's Heidi now, debuting some cute, blunt bangs at JFK Airport on Sunday.

We like the hair and her classic, over-sized aviator lenses. We are also 'heart-ing' the black bag and red mani.

Are you liking the very casual, baggy denim jumpsuit + high-tops?

Not our favorite look on the famous model + TV star, but when you're Heidi Klum, well, you look super in just about everything.

Christina Aguilera Makes The Black Knit Beret Sexy + Glam All Over Again!

Singing superstar Christina Aguilera looks so darn incredible these days.  The petite ' The Voice' judge has shed major lbs. and is showing her slender silhouette off .

Who could blame her?

How did X-tina do it?

Some claim plastic surgery, like lipo. But we have learned from the mutli-talented star that it was hard work and a solid plan via the 1,600-calorie Fresh Diet premium meal-delivery plan, yoga and regular sessions with trainer Tee Sorge.

And we believe her.

There she is, exiting an LA eatery Friday evening. We LOVE Christina's little black, knit beret. Very sexy + glam!! This ain't your Mama's 70's grammy beret.

This looks HOT! And you can copy her classic look, too, with a cropped, black blazer, white tee, skinny jeans, hot shoes AND a pretty, black open-knit beret!

We found a copy-cat beret here on Amazon for just $7.95!!! We ADORE the black knit beret! Would you rock the look this fall?

Nicki Minaj Adds Hip-Hop Cool To K-Mart Fashion

Nicki Minaj.

The hip-hop icon has her own style, and K-Mart wants it! So, the talented star debuted her lifestyle brand, the Nicki Minaj Collection, at Kmart and this week.

The colorful collection retails between $20-40. Nicki's line includes everything from accessories like studded hats and gold chain necklaces to cool, patterned leggings +  acid wash denim.

"I wanted to do something that would take Kmart to another level and make girls like me feel like we can shop here," Nicki told "Good Morning America."

The sexy rap queen looks so glam modeling the edgy look from her new line. And by the way, we think Nicki could give Kim K a run for her money in the curvy, ample butt department.

Check out Nicki's bold hip-hop style here.

OMG!! Iman Is 58? Looks Super Fabulous!!

We'll have what she's having...LOL

Model Iman is 58-years-old. And she looks incredible! the hair is a bit faux,  but, darn, if that's 58, well, it's almost a freak of nature.

We've ALWAYS been a big fan of the iconic model, and every time we see a new pic of this glamorous lady, our jaw drops, because she looks that good. Maybe it's the makeup from her successful IMAN Cosmetics line?

It's probably more about super genes and a sound way of diet + exercise.
The sultry beauty once told Bazaar magazine this about her healthy diet plan:

"I eat whatever I desire but in moderation. I never have alcohol, carbonated drinks, or red meat, though I do allow myself to cheat every so often, depending on the indulgence. I believe that exercise is not only for vanity but also for its health benefits."

So, then what does the slender mom eat to maintain that gorgeous body?

"Lunch is often a turkey burger on 12-grain bread and an arugula salad with tomatoes and shaved Parmesan cheese. Other days I might have some pasta with vegetables, a grilled-chicken Caesar salad (which I always have with the dressing on the side), or a tuna sandwich on 12-grain bread and a green salad topped with sliced green apples. I always drink water with lunch and keep drinking it all afternoon.

"Most nights I cook at home for my family, and it is almost always grilled or steamed fish (salmon twice a week and Chilean sea bass, black cod, or halibut on the other days) with steamed vegetables, such as broccoli, snow peas, asparagus, shiitake mushrooms, or leeks sautéed in Pam cooking oil with shallots and garlic. Sometimes I make a salad as well — either mozzarella, tomato, and basil or a green salad topped with sardines — and I make my own dressing from lemon, garlic, extra-virgin olive oil, salt, and pepper."

That's REALLY healthy eating, but in a smart, sensible way. Iman's cheat snack?

"Three pieces of Werther's Original hard candy. I'm addicted to them."

Just 3?

Such supermodel discipline.

Really, Mama Kim K? WasThis Self-Serving Selfie Really Necessary?!

Alright. We are all for the beautiful, post-baby body, but did we REALLY need to see this, Kim K?!

Haven't we all had ENOUGH of these ridiculous selfies?

How much self-promotion + ego-massaging does one need?

Why are we picking on glamorous Kim Kardashian?

It appears that she is allegedly sensitive to the tabloid headlines that claim the new mother of baby North is STILL overweight with a large number of post-baby pounds to go.

Well,  the famous reality star is fighting back to prove otherwise, and exposing her side-boob and very ample butt to the world.

You are a mother, now, Kim K. Have a little respect.

Cindy Crawford is a stunning mother-of-2, and does not parade herself around in extremely revealing show-off selfies, and believe us, Cindy still has the gorgeous, supermodel body to do so.

Is this possibly an ad for the famous Atkins diet plan?

Kim claims that is how she has been shedding the post-baby pounds:

'I've actually been doing the Atkins diet & luv it,' she revealed recently. 'She is eating lots of lean proteins, healthy fats like nuts and avocado, carbs, fruits, veggies and cheese,' a rep for Atkins says.

We are happy the reality star is praising the 2,000 calories per day Atkins diet, because the plan has helped many people drop weight all these years.

But did Kim K need to strip down to that tacky degree?

We're not so sure.

What do you think?

Copy 'Extra' Host Maria Menounos' Glam Nude Lips!

We all love 'Extra' host Maria Menounos.

Who could hate that bubbly, unassuming girl with the goofy laugh?!

Have you ever noticed that the television star seems to prefer a smoky eye paired with a nude lip?

Maria is sharing one of her clever, beauty tips, straight from her monthly column for People StyleWatch Oct. 2013.

Maria Menounos' Nude Lip Tricks:

"Sometimes you just want your makeup to be pretty and easy--that's why I like a nude lip. To get the look, I fill in my lips with TIGI liner, then smooth M.A.C. gloss on top. It's simple, and it lasts all day."

Maria's fave--- a peachy nude.

New DreamTone By Lancome: For Just Shy Of $100, You, Too, Can Have A More Even Skin Tone

Beauty products can cost a lot of $$$, especially when it comes to skin care. But as we like to think, if the item is very effective, then make the beauty investment.  Period.

Let's take a further look at Lancôme's brand new 'DreamTone Customized Skin Tone Correcting Serum.'.. It's just shy of $100 at $98.

Okay....that's a wad of cash...But maybe it REALLY works?

We prefer beauty serums over creams, because we have learned that a serum is stronger than a cream. So, that means you are getting MORE product for the money.

If you want to battle the signs of aging, like wrinkles and sagging skin and uneven skin tone, always opt for the serum.

Says who? New York City dermatologist, David J. Goldberg. He explains that face serums are more potent. "Creams usually contain less than 10 percent of active ingredients; serums have up to 70 percent," he says.

DreamTone comes in 3 customized tints for all skin tones.

- Tint 1, designed for fair skin, reduces dark spots, uneven skin tone and redness.
- Tint 2, designed for medium skin, reduces dark spots, uneven skin tone and sallowness.
- Tint 3, designed for dark skin, reduces dark spots, uneven skin tone and acne and blemish marks.

'Klever' Kim Kardashian: Monochromatic DressingTo Appear More Slender Post-Baby

If you study new mama Kim Kardashian's post baby style, you will find a secret to her slimmer body success.

A lot of it is in the illusion. In other words, 'klever' Kim K. is dressing in monochromatic to appear more slender post-baby
By wearing one color from head-to-toe, it instantly gives the appearance of a longer, leaner, taller figure.

Kim is also putting on large coats to hide her body and to look smaller in an over-sized topper.

We think it's working!  Take a look:
