Eating More? Drinking More? Sleeping Less? You Need to Read This Post

Nov/27/2014 at 06:00 PM ET

Hi! I’m Andrea Lavinthal, PEOPLE’s Style and Beauty Director, and like most of my stories, this one starts with my hair. It was shedding more than usual and no dermatologist, endocrinologist, gynecologist or any other -ologist could tell me why. So like any desperate person, I turned to drugs. My friend Amber was taking a cocktail of supplements (enough to “rival Valley of the Dolls’ Neely O’Hara’s daily allotment” as she puts it) and garnering impressive results. I consulted an expert (and by expert I mean Google) then did a virtual Supermarket Sweep of the vitamins and supplements section of Amazon, adding a handful of hair growth pills to my regular regimen of a multivitamin with iron and vitamin D.

It got to the point where I had to buy one of those plastic pill containers that grandparents use to organize their medications. (I felt like Katy Perry</a< in the photo below, holding her daily supplement intake which is more than 20 pills. She posted that pic on Twitter last year along with the caption, "I'm all about that supplement & vitamin LYFE!") Then, like most things that require time and discipline, I lost interest after a few weeks and moved my stash of half-empty bottles to the beauty product graveyard under the bathroom sink.

Nov/25/2014 at 10:37 AM ET

Sure, you know what Kim Kardashian looks like naked. But you might not know that she gains approximately 20 social media followers every minute, she makes more than $3,000 an hour and her app raked in over $42 million in three months (all according to Elle UK). This is why the magazine decided to feature the star on the cover (make that covers: there are three!) of its January 2015 Confidence Issue, which is touted as “A Smart Woman’s Guide to Self-Belief.”

Kim Kardashian on Naked Paper Photos: 'I Wanted to Make Myself Feel Confident'

Nov/18/2014 at 10:28 AM ET

If Kim Kardashian‘s naked photo shoot for Paper magazine left you with more questions than answers, you’re not alone. But luckily the 34-year-old star is addressing one of the more pressing queries still unanswered: Did she really balance that champagne glass on her backside or was it the magic of Photoshop?

“My back hurt for about a week after that shoot … I used muscles!” Kardashian said coyly during her guest appearance on the Australian show The Project. “[Photographer Jean-Paule Goude] has an art of posing you and it was definitely not comfortable.” (Later in the interview, she taught TV host Rove McManus the same balancing trick, warning him, “You don’t have as big a butt as I do.”) Read More

We Tried It: A Star-Loved Waist-Training Corset

Nov/13/2014 at 04:49 PM ET

What is it: Amia’s Almighty Cincher

Who tried it: Alissa Harris, Photo Editor

Why I did it: I just had a baby and figured it was the perfect time to jump on the waist-training bandwagon (Okay, Jessica Alba and Kim Kardashian convinced me too)

Level of difficulty: 5. I didn’t love putting the corset on (it’s pretty uncomfortable, especially when a 10-month-old is always hanging off our hip), but the results are worth it

Elle Macpherson may be 50, but the supermodel doesn’t look (or feel) her age. And the Australian beauty insists healthy living is key to her energy.

Macpherson, nicknamed “the body,” spoke to PEOPLE Wednesday night at her cover party for Ocean Drive magazine at the new Stripsteak Miami restaurant in the Fontainebleau, where she shared the secret to her ageless look. “Most people say youth and beauty go together, but in my experience wellness and beauty go together,” she explained.
