Ahhh, February…It’s the shortest month of the year, but we sure cram a lot in. Assorted awards shows, the Super Bowl, a long holiday weekend, tons of snow storms and, of course, Valentine’s Day. It’s a month of love, and that’s why we’re pretty sure you’ll fall in love with this bumper crop of super hot celebrity social media snaps from the last 28 days! Rihanna, Beyonce, Mariah Carey, Nicki Ninaj…they’re hot, there here, and spring is around the corner. What more could you want out of life?
Ever since Lorde hit the Grammy’s wearing dark, vampire-esque lips, celebs everywhere have been popping up with heavy plum lipstick. This goth-lite trend is perfect timing, since it goes fabulously with midwinter pale skin (very Wynona Rider in Beetlejuice). Of course, some celebs look more Manson than others. Kylie Jenner and Rihanna manage to look uber-intense in the look, while Selena Gomez and Katy Perry seem to be playing dress up with their depressed girlfriend’s gloss.
Either way, we’re so into it. The best part? There are a ton of shades on shelves that flatter all skin tones. If you’re fair to medium, try a neutral plum like Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Goldpearl Plum. Darker tones look fabulous in a deeper eggplant, like Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick in Black Plum. In the meantime, crack open The Bell Jar, cue up your Morissey playlist, and check out the ten best “bleak chic” lips of the moment!
Belly chains are weird. In theory, they’re stupid and superfluous, a bit of jewelry around a part of the body that doesn’t normally have a necklace-type chain wrapped around it. In practice, they’re pretty stupid too — unless you’re a gorgeous celebrity with a sexy body, of course. Mere mortals should avoid the belly chain at all costs, but for those who are endowed with perfect curves — our girl Rihanna, for instance — the belly chain is their best friend.
Speaking of Rihanna, her gratuitous use of the belly chain and copious Instagram beach selfless have really piqued our interest in the belly chain. While we mostly associate the belly chain with the early 2000′s, body jewelry is having a renaissance among the celebrity set, with everyone from Beyonce to Kendall Jenner flaunting their perfect abdominals with gold chains. Take a look at this collection of the best belly chains from the past and now.
As the poet once said, love makes us do foolish things. And as another (very different) poet once said, love stinks. When you put those two universal truths together, accidents can happen…such as permanently marking you body with the name of your romantic partner. Sure, it’s an undeniably sweet gesture (and there are definitely worse tattoos you could get), but what happens if things go south with your one-and-only? What if one day down the road your sweetheart decides to play hackey-sack with your heart and kick your butt to the curb? This could lead to problems. Just ask these unfortunate celebs!
If you ever believed that you and your friends could lift the weight of a human body with only a combination of your index and middle fingers, some candles and heavy chanting, then you were probably a big fan of The Craft in the ’90s. That being the case, you definitely remember saving up for deep purple lipstick like Nancy wore in the movie. Yes, The Craft and the popularization of witch culture (eventually bleeding into fashion), saw many a pubescent girl with smudged purple lips that most likely looked more bruised than broodingly occult.
It’s been a while since Nancy and the girls did their magic, but once the spell was cast, there was no turning back. Now, witch inspired lipstick has been the calling card of many a movie star, pop singer and fashionista. Most recently, we saw Lorde clean up at the Grammys while wearing a rich shade of deep plum lipstick, and rocking a decidedly witchy vibe in her monochrome outfits and long black hair.
In celebration of our favorite witches, Lorde’s iconic Grammys wins, and the fact that we just can’t get enough plum shades on our lips, we’re taking a look at some of the best witch inspired lips of the past few years. These are some babes who know how to exfoliate.
If you live in the north east, you’ve probably noticed that it’s cold. Damn cold. In fact, there have been record low temperatures caused be what the press are dubbing a “polar vortex.” It’s sounds kind of ominous and deadly, but never fear because we’ve got the cure: These 40 scorching Twitpics and Instagrams from the past month. They’re sure to get your heart pumpin’!
Cara Delevingne is very close with her girlfriends. She’s been crab hunting with Rihanna in Barbados, smoking e-cigarettes and smooching Michelle Rodriguez at a New York Knicks game, and now we’ve learned how she and her fellow Victoria’s Secret pals hang after hours.
Some celebrity couples are just…silly. We’re not naming any names, but we feel like if we had control over who was dating, the love lives of the stars would be so much hotter! For example — why haven’t Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, friends with crazy chemistry, ever gotten together (forget the fact that he only dates women a generation younger than him)? Or what about Kate and Leo (ditto)? And in our humble matchmaking opinion, Europe’s naughtiest prince and a certain Bahamian pop star/wild child would make Westminster Abbey implode. Worth imagining for Queen Elizabeth’s reaction, alone (“What’s a Rihanna? Guards, remove this tart in tats and a crop top!”).
We don’t know where you are, but if you’re on the East Coast you’re probably well aware that it’s pretty damn cold. In times like this, all we can do is bundle up in six sweaters and nine pairs of long johns, drop a fully-loaded baked potato down our pants for warmth, and fantasize about being on vacation at some gorgeous tropical island locale. But let’s not forget that the bright and glorious sun brings with it some hazards of its own. Just look at these celebs with intense tan lines!
Good morning, 2014! While we’re still not quite ready to make our own New Year’s resolutions, we thought we’d warm up to it by dictating some to others. After watching the stars F things up for themselves in 2013, we think we have their best interests in mind with these plans. For instance, Lindsay Lohan, stop tempting fate and just go home before midnight. We have an easier one for Rihanna:
