Plus-Size Blogger Asks 21 Countries to Make Her 'Beautiful' with Photoshop (and the Results Surprised Her)

Dec/16/2014 at 05:34 PM ET

Like journalists Esther Honing and Priscilla Yuki Wilson before her, 23-year-old Marie Southard Ospina asked strangers in different countries to Photoshop an untouched, barefaced portrait of her to reflect how they defined beauty. What makes Ospina’s story different? She’s a plus-size blogger.

“I was so fascinated by these women’s work that I became increasingly curious as to how editors would treat a photo of me if asked to edit it, what with my chubby cheeks, double chin, thick shoulders and chest and rounder, fuller face,” the Colombian-American wrote in a blog post for “What would they do with these traits?”

Get Cameron Diaz's Holiday-Ready Berry Lip from the Annie Premiere!

Dec/08/2014 at 11:32 AM ET

Cameron Diaz is one of those actresses that can make laid-back California girl style work on the red carpet: She has no qualms showing up to an event in a beige sweater, leather leggings and a totally effortless loose side braid. But she can also pull out a stellar sexy LBD or a head-turning bold gown. So when she stepped out at the New York City premiere of Annie in a slightly-shimmery Dior dress and a makeup look that embodies both casual-cool and elegant glamour, we wanted to know how she made it work.

Yesterday, Pantone officially announced that the color of 2015 will be: Marsala. Until now, we didn’t associate Marsala with anything other than the chicken dish we order at our favorite Italian spot (which is delicious) but now it’s got a whole new, chic-er meaning: its “a naturally robust and earthy wine red” that is “subtly seductive” (according to their website).

It's Officially Shimmery Shadow Season! And We Have Kendall Jenner to Thank

Nov/28/2014 at 06:00 PM ET

Kendall Jenner is pretty hot right now — and by that we mean both that she’s having a major moment and she’s totally gorgeous. As such, we’ve been taking more and more style cues from the 19-year-old model. So far she’s taught us how to wear head-to-toe neutrals, and how to make our undies work with us–not against us–if and when we ever dare to wear a revealing dress. And, just in time for holiday party season, the new face of Estée Lauder is inspiring us to break out the shimmery shadow for our upcoming parties thanks to her fresh take on a sparkly, smoky eye.
