Mindy Kaling: I'm Not Courageous Just Because I Wore a Crop Top!

Mindy Kaling isn’t afraid to make a statement on the red carpet, but the actress revealed she was a bit surprised by all the body buzz her recent red carpet crop top generated.

“Unless you have problems, for most women that’s a nice little area right under your bra,” she told Jimmy Kimmel Monday of showing a slice of stomach skin in matching Topshop separates, worn to the 2014 PaleyFest. “Some people were pretty mean about it, but then some people were like, ‘She’s just so courageous!’ Aren’t surgeons courageous?”

The Mindy Project star also revealed that because of her curvier shape, she falls into this category where the public — and her followers on Twitter — seem to either fervently praise or harshly critique her style decisions.

“I also am the recipient of a lot of backhanded compliments about it, where people are like, ‘It’s so nice that Mindy Kaling doesn’t feel she needs to subscribe to the ideals of beauty that other people do,” she shares. “And I’m like, ‘I do subscribe!’ They’re like, ‘It’s so refreshing that Mindy feels comfortable to let herself go and be a fat sea monster.’ By the way, I run and work out. It takes a lot of effort to look like a normal, chubby woman. The way they talk about it, [it's] like, ‘She’s a pioneer because she’s glued to her sofa.’” Read More

Mar/24/2014 at 12:51 PM ET

Does anyone love wearing wedges with distressed denim shorts more than Jessica Simpson? We doubt it. The singer returned to one of her favorite warm-weather styles — and showed off her seriously slimmed-down figure while she was at it — in a pair of cutoffs, a coordinating Current/Elliott shirt and a Samilynn Jewelry necklace.

Back in her pre-baby days, denim cutoffs were a key part of Simpson’s uniform. And now that she’s reached her goal weight, the mom of two isn’t afraid to show off her super-toned stems. (Click here for her workout from trainer Harley Pasternak.)

Aside from consistently hitting the gym, Simpson has been following her Weight Watchers plan closely. And she revealed that this is all done with one goal in mind: her upcoming nuptials to fiancé Eric Johnson. “Knowing that I have the wedding coming up is an incentive to stay on Weight Watchers, count my points and stay in the gym. I mean, when you see my dress, you’ll know.” Read More

The Last Water Bottle You'll Ever Buy (P.S. It's Great for Mixing Cocktails, Too)

Mar/24/2014 at 06:00 AM ET

We know drinking water is good for us and that there about a million and four health benefits to getting enough of it. Our complaint, though, is that it’s not that exciting. Which is where this genius water bottle comes in…

We’ve become a bit addicted to fruit-infused H2O since discovering the Flavourit bottle. And unlike just dropping slices of lemons and berries in a pitcher, this water bottle is designed to get a ton of flavor out of whatever you’re adding to your drink.

And if you watched the full video, you’ve realized that we’re, uh, not using the Flavourit for just water. This thing has seriously elevated our at-home bartending since we can now make strawberry-flavored vodka-tonics, Dark-and-Stormies with actual pieces of ginger and rum-and-Cokes with a couple cherries added in.

Get an exclusive 15% discount (to bring down the price to 12.75 a bottle) by entering STYLE15 at checkout. And be sure to let us know how you’re flavoring your water (or other beverages!).

(Oh, and if hot coffee and tea are your thing, you must check out this other amazing bottle that keeps drinks hot for a full 12 hours and cold for an entire day.)

Happy shopping and sipping!

Kim Kardashian Loves this Calvin Klein Collection Outfit So Much, She Has It In Two Colors

“If you love it, buy it in two colors. What’s worse than having to choose between black (the safe option) and another color (the wild card)? Nothing, that’s what.” Can you guess who said these wise words? Stumped? It’s PEOPLE Style Director Andrea Lavinthal. And it looks like Kim Kardashian‘s been reading the site, because she now follows that same style mantra.

The reality star stepped out Wednesday night in a red knit ribbed crop top and pencil skirt, both Calvin Klein Collection. And, sure, Kardashian has the most extensive crop top collection in the U.S., but there was something very familiar about this one in particular. So we did some digging on her Instagram feed, and voilà: She also has it in white, with the skirt to match.(Because one can never have too many coordinating separates, right?)

Kardashian wore the white two-piece set (which retails for over $2,000) back in January while out with Kanye West, adding Giuseppe Zanotti shoes. And Wednesday she proved once again she’s breaking away from her neutrals-only wardrobe policy by wearing a red version of the Calvin Klein design, this time paired with nude Tom Ford sandals.

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.”

Miranda Kerr‘s healthy lifestyle is rubbing off on her three-year-old son, Flynn. And he has quite the impressive vocabulary to prove it.

“The other day he was like, ‘Mama, I want to make a smoothie.’ He wanted to make his own smoothie, and then he said, ‘This one’s for you. It’s full of antioxidants,’” she told PEOPLE at a Reebok event in N.Y.C. “He’s three years old, how does he know that? He obviously heard me talking.”

Kerr’s little boy is also part of her fitness routine. “We dance all the time, he loves it. It’s one of his favorite things.” Read More
