Flashback Friday: Liz Phair Has Found the Fountain of Youth

Apr/18/2014 at 12:20 PM ET

When Liz Phair hit the red carpet at the Farmland premiere in NYC Thursday night, first we thought: Did we time travel back to 1998? Then we thought: We want to be taking whatever magic vitamins the singer is on, because she looks amazing. Proof? The split above.

Back in 2001 (left photo), Phair might have experimented more with her hair and wardrobe (we’re still trying to figure out what that fur thing is), but her clear complexion and smile looks the exact same as it did Thursday night — 13 years later — when she performed “This Land is Your Land” with Everclear (more ’90s flashbacks!) from the Farmland documentary’s soundtrack. She also celebrated her 47th birthday. (We couldn’t believe her age either.)

Last year, Phair celebrated the 20th anniversary of her heavily-acclaimed first studio album Exile in Guyville, and it’s great to see she’s still on the scene. What do you think of her agelessness? Is the fountain of youth at Lilith Fair? Share your thoughts below.

We Tried It: 3 Hairstyles from Kate's Royal Tour

What it is: Being a total fangirl and bringing pictures of your hair idol Duchess Catherine to the blowout bar so you can get her look (pegged to her current Royal Tour hairstyles of course)

Who Tried It: Brittany Talarico, Associate Style Editor

Why She Tried It: Because the only thing that excites me more than this gif of Prince George is Kate’s hair

How crazy is it on a scale from 1 to Ridiculous? If you’re getting one of her looks recreated at a blowout bar, it’s a zero. They’re super easy for any hairstylist to master. If you’re doing it on yourself, I’d say about a 3.5-7.5, all depending on your hair type, and how good you are with a curling iron and bobby pins.

Emma Stone Hair Debate: Super-Straight or Super-Curly? We Take Sides

Apr/17/2014 at 09:00 AM ET

Fact 1: Emma Stone has shiny, gorgeous hair. Fact 2: She’s been nailing it on the red carpet while touring the globe to promote The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Fact 3: PeopleStyleWatch.com editors really love discussing these two previous facts. And during one of those discussions, a great debate started to brew. Does Emma’s hair look better straight or curly? Below, we bring you two strong opinions.

Brittany Talarico, Associate Style Editor: I love Emma, but she looked like she was going to a Great Gatsby theme party with that tight pin curl thing happening at the Berlin premiere of The Amazing Spider-Man. And I’m personally over the whole ’20s Gatsby vibe. Sure it’s glamorous and can be fun in the right context, but when you have such shiny healthy hair like the actress, wearing it sleek and straight is a no-brainer. Seriously, look how amazing it looks in the left photo above. She’s like a walking Keratin add. I also think her straight strands enhance her color. So next time you’re debating between the two looks Emma, always go straight. (Unless you’re doing the whole old Hollywood loose curl thing like this magic moment. That I’m okay with.)

Alex Apatoff, Style News Editor: Brittany, did you have a big bowl of Nope this morning? Emma’s curls are super-gorgeous. The only thing I don’t like about them is that there’s no way I’ll ever be able to replicate this look myself. Every star in Hollywood does the sleek, straight blowout, but so few ever experiment with gorgeous, goddess-y looks like this one (and I give her hair pro Mara Roszak major snaps for being able to pull all these styles off so beautifully — just look at the photo below!). I love that Emma’s willing to play with texture, length and volume. Maybe I’m biased as a curly girl myself, but I’ll take shiny spirals over simple strands anyday.

Whose side are you on? Share your thoughts below. And don’t forget to take a look at Emma’s straight to curly hair spectrum!

Hayden Panettiere might only be 5-ft-2, but makes a big entrance. We would know: We had the opportunity to interview the star down in Tennessee where her hit show Nashville is filmed (she calls the city her second home). And the Neutrogena spokesmodel dished on everything from her bridal beauty vision to the purple hair trend and her character Juliette Barnes’s impressive closet.

Catherine Zeta-Jones's Blunt Bangs: Are You Loving Her Look?

Apr/16/2014 at 04:43 PM ET

We’ve been fooled by bangs before (clip-ins are so popular, as you know from Kim Kardashian and Mindy Kaling), but no need to be skeptical this time: Catherine Zeta-Jones‘s fringe is the real deal. The actress debuted her new hair look for the first time on the carpet Thursday, and we almost didn’t recognize the star.

That’s probably because Zeta-Jones didn’t go for a subtle side bang or some piecey wisps. She went for a heavy, blunt straight across style that covers her eyebrows (and almost her eyeballs). It also looks like she also trimmed few inches from her long dark brown strands. The actress kept the rest of her beauty look simple with a brick-red lip and soft smoky eye to go with her plunging black dress.

And the star’s hair isn’t the only buzz surrounding her right now. She was joined on the carpet (for opening night of The Library in NYC) by husband Michael Douglas, marking the first time the the couple has attended an event together since deciding to re-evaluate their marriage last June.

“It is so easy to just give up,” a longtime family friend tells PEOPLE. “But they wanted to put in the work. I’m really happy for them.”

We hope the new look celebrates a new chapter for the actress. Are you a fan of her fringe? Share your thoughts below.

What tops most girls to-do lists the minute they get engaged? Hitting the nail salon for the perfect mani to match their new bling, of course. Jenny McCarthy, who just announced her engagement to Donnie Wahlberg Wednesday, made sure her tips were freshly painted — though no nail art could distract us from that new mega-carat engagement ring sitting pretty on her left hand.

The View co-host shared her exciting news on air while showing off her sparkler to the other hosts. “It’s a yellow sapphire,” she said of the bauble, which looks to be 5-plus carats (if we had to guess) and is surrounded by a halo of diamonds. (Get an up-close look at the bauble — and her hot-pink Sally Hansen manicure — above.) Read More
