Hey Olga Graf: You’re not the only athlete to suffer a wardrobe malfunction at the Winter Olympics. Swedish skier Henrik Harlaut almost lost his pants during his Slopestyle qualifying round Thursday, broadcasting his blue long johns to the world.

Turns out, Harlaut’s low-hanging bottoms are all part of his ski swagger. “I don’t think skiing with my ski pants so low is an issue,” the Olympian told the AFP after his event. “I have been skiing like this for 10 years now. It is my style and has been for a while. I feel really comfortable.”

Ryan Seacrest Adds 'Clothing Line' to His Résumé

If you were just thinking to yourself, “Ryan Seacrest isn’t busy enough. He should get a new job,” well, you’re in luck, because the producer, TV host and general personality has a clothing line launching at Macy’s this fall. Called “Ryan Seacrest Distinction,” the line is aimed at men who have a hard time putting an outfit together.

That’s why Seacrest created a color-matching system designed to make sprucing up your blue, black and brown suits easier. Called “Style Made Smart,” it’s geared towards 25-to-45 year old men who want to look sharp but maybe aren’t sure where to start — and each style is modeled after Seacrest’s own preferred uniform of slim-fitting suits and skinny ties. But Seacrest wants it to be clear he’s not putting pen to paper for this collection. “I’m not a designer, nor do I think I am,” he told the Wall Street Journal. “I see an opportunity to help curate these different pieces for guys at an accessible level.”

Prices will start at $45 (for a belt) and top out at $550 (for a suit), and the styles will be available at 150 Macy’s stores later this year. For more on the collection, including sneak peek photos, go to, and tell us: Would you shop a Seacrest suit? Do you admire his style?

There hasn’t been much happening for Team USA on the slopes and the rink (as far as gold medals are concerned, anyway). Fortunately, we can always rely on Johnny Weir to bring the magic off the ice. The two-time Olympian has translated his signature flamboyant figure skating costumes into television presenter attire for his commentator role at NBC, and the results have been among the most talked-about moments of the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi.

“I decided to go more of Stanley Tucci’s character from the Hunger Games,” Weir explained to Philadelphia magazine. “I’m trying to stay between the lines of Johnny on Skating with the Stars and the rest of the NBC men’s family in Brooks Brothers.” (And he’s got some outfit ideas for Bob Costas, once that red eye clears up.)

Looking to splurge big on your boyfriend this Valentine’s Day? How about something from Dwyane Wade’s closet? Thanks to The RealReal, you can totally make that happen.

The online retailer is launching a charity sale Monday featuring 80 pieces straight from the NBA star’s closet. (And if you’re a “First Look” member of The RealReal you can shop the sale 24 hours before.) Prices for the items range from $95 to $700, and we have a sneak peek at some of the things on offer. Above, check out a classic Gucci tie ($125), Louis Vuitton belt ($325), a limited-edition Louis Vuitton sneaker ($525) and a double-breasted spotted Gucci blazer — yes, the same one the player wore to one of the Miami Heat’s championship games last year — for $595. (Like we said, it’s a splurge, but all of these pieces are slashed from their original retail prices.)

Maria Menounos's Surprising (and Surprisingly Elaborate) Trick to Get Perfect Skin

If you haven’t already downloaded PEOPLE StyleWatch’s March issue on your tablet, it just hit newsstands today — so put “picking it up” on your lunch break “to do” list. Inside, you’ll see amazing tips for every shape, plenty of fun spring trends — and, as always, smart and sensible beauty and fashion advice from our monthly columnist (and Extra host) Maria Menounos.

We asked the question many of you have been dying to have answered: What’s the secret to her amazing skin, especially with all the travel she does and makeup she wears for work. As it turns out, she’s got quite a routine. “My main thing is that I make sure I wash my face every night, no matter what. Neutrogena wipes, [then] wash,” she says.

RELATED: The spring trends our Style Council can’t wait to wear!

But wait, there’s more: “I even do a white glove test to make sure it’s all off … My other trick is that I use one white face towel and then put it the hamper. I use a clean towel every time I wash. You can go to Big Lots and buy a pack of 10 or 15 towels for cheap. Just never re-use towels, they have all that bacteria!”

And Menounos’s thriftiness doesn’t stop at Big Lots towels in bulk. “There’s no reason to spend a lot on fashion when there are so many thrifty options,” she says. “It may make you feel better inside knowing that you have the Chloe boots, but I always am totally more moved by my friends who are like, ‘I got these at the flea market, or at H&M.’ It’s just how you assemble the outfit.”

Would you go to such extremes to make sure your skin was clean? What’s your skincare secret?

Matthew McConaughey: Making Small Talk in My Magic Mike Thong Was Quite the Experience

Matthew McConaughey may be Oscar-nominated for his role in Dallas Buyers Club, but perhaps his most challenging role to date was playing a guy who was comfortable wearing a thong on the set of Magic Mike. As a guest on BBC America’s The Graham Norton Show, McConaughey recalls forcing himself to walk around in what Norton calls a “posing pouch” to help himself get used to the, shall we say, cheeky experience.

“You put one of those [thongs] on, and you find that your body gets kind of inverted,” he says, demonstrating. “I had to loosen up, because this is a guy who really lives in this thing, and I had to get really loose and [down] with it.”

RELATED PHOTOS: McConaughey also looks great with his clothes on!

That meant walking around in it even when it wasn’t called for. “I remember going — and I wasn’t the only one who did this — I had to walk out amongst the crew and have small-time, normal conversations. ‘Hey, what’d you have for lunch? Did you see the game this weekend?’ Go out and try to have some small talk in this thong without flinching. It was hard.” At this point, the audience goes wild for his unintentional double entendre. “I wasn’t, but it was,” he laughed. “Thank you for that.”

Watch the whole video below for McConaughey’s very physical (though entirely clothed) demonstration, and react in the comments.
