Flashback Friday: Liz Phair Has Found the Fountain of Youth

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.

The Self-Tanner for People Who Hate Self-Tanning

Apr/14/2014 at 06:00 AM ET

If you can wipe yourself off with a towel, you can master using this self-tanner. If you have five minutes to spare, you’ve got time to give yourself an allover glow with this self-tanner. And if you can type STYLE15, you can get an exclusive discount on this self-tanner.

These towelettes don’t require a PhD in self-tanning in order to avoid streaks, splotches, stains on your clothes and orange spots. All you have to do is swipe a towel over your body, let it try for a couple minutes then get dressed and wait for your glow to appear.

Within a few hours, you’ll look like you just came back from vacation … not like you spent the last few months in jeans and sweaters, hibernating during a Polar Vortex.

We Tried It: Oil Pulling (Because Gwyneth Paltrow Told Us To)

We Tried It: Oil PullingCourtesy Brittany Talarico

What it is: An ancient Ayurvedic dental remedy that involves swishing coconut oil (you can also use sesame or sunflower oil) for 20 minutes to boost oral health, whiten teeth, detoxify the body and improve your complexion (Sounds too good to be true, right?)

Who Tried It: Brittany Talarico, Associate Style Editor

Why She Tried It: One of my best friends told me about it, and as soon as I heard “all natural teeth whitening” I was game. (I’m a sucker for teeth whitening.) Plus, Gwyneth Paltrow told me she’s an avid oil puller (Shailene Woodley loves it too), so I knew I had to try it. (Seriously, if GOOP says so …)

How crazy is it on a scale from 1 to Ridiculous? I’d give it a 7.5. Not gonna lie, it’s tough and time consuming. You definitely feel a bit “cuckoo” while you’re swishing (more on that below)

Gwyneth Paltrow: 'I'm 41, So I Need to Be a Girl and Deal With Products'

We like to think of Gwyneth Paltrow as our own personal lifestyle guru. From her bold crop top-wearing skills to her crazy cleanses to those GOOP newsletters (yes, we subscribe!), the actress is everywhere (including in our head as we get ready). So it’s no surprise Restorsea tapped Paltrow as the new face of their skincare line. (After all, she did nab PEOPLE’s World’s Most Beautiful woman title.)

What are her secrets to a flawless complexion? “I try to always cleanse my skin and moisturize at night. I’ve gotten a lot better at it,” she tells PEOPLE. “I used to just wash my face with a wash cloth and water. But now I’m 41, so I need to be a girl and deal with products and put them on and stuff. I still think a hot wash cloth is a really good exfoliator, and I still use it. But I put a cleanser on first. Exfoliation is super important. A hot wash cloth and good scrub.”

Shailene Woodley's Best Beauty Advice: 'Be Pregnant With the World' and More

Mar/19/2014 at 11:47 AM ET

Ask almost any actress on the red carpet for beauty secrets, and she’ll invariably say “Moisturize!” or “Use sunscreen!” Not Shailene Woodley. When asked for her best tip at Tuesday night’s L.A. premiere of Divergent, she said:

“Get in a bath and look at your body and be like, ‘Wow, thank you so much for hosting my mind and my heart,’ like as women you know, and also be pregnant with the world. I think that’s really beautiful beauty advice, like, close your eyes and think about all of the other women out there who aren’t in positions to be on a red carpet in Hollywood tonight enjoying this beautiful weather and all of these beautiful smiles and put those women in your womb and be pregnant with them and send them love.”

While that may be easier said than done, Woodley has offered up some simpler-to-follow (but still slightly out there) beauty advice in the past. If you’re looking to follow the Woodley plan for shiny hair and great skin, try some of the below tips.
