chopped




did you hear the news? anne hathaway has been chopped.
check out her close-cropped hair do.


Survey says? Two shears up.

In other news:
Emily Blunt.

Are you loving her as much as I am lately? She looks amazing. Her hair also deserves some recognition with high praise. Sound Hallelujah Chorus.


Charlize
I don't remember her ever looking better. Tre chic!


Camilla
Not sure what's going on between her um, (knockers)...but otherwise flaw. less. The hair! sigh.



Vanessa

Fail. Kids, look away from your computer screen. This is not for the weak hearted, either. Is she SERIOUS with her zebra striped hair? I literally dry-heaved when I saw it. Sorry for ruining your lunch.

And that's the way the cookie crumbles. Sincerely,
H.

Fired.

As each new season approaches, we are left with a very serious question on our minds: What trends can be carried into the next season?

With that in mind, I present: Dead Trends.

Feathers.
Just for the record, I hated it from the get-go.

We still love you, Aria!


Perfect makeup (this includes the ever-popular smokey eye!)
Instead, use a lip stain and smudge your liner with your finger to make it more beachy and "lived-in." (But go ahead and keep the winged liner. You know I'm going to.)


The "I just rolled out of bed" look. Was this ever in style? It seems the celebs think it makes them more approachable to be so grungy. If you want simplicity, go with the perpetually classic white v-neck and dark skinnies.

Other things we're losing this season:
Overly-lined lips (are you listening, KK??)
Super distressed jeans
Fringe
Fabric statement necklaces

What trends do you wish would go away??
