Sizzling at 61: Seymour stuns in bandage dress
Ageless actress Jane Seymour puts the sexy in sexagenarian.
Monday’s L.A. premiere of Freeloaders put proof to the adage “60 is the new 40” when actress Jane Seymour strode into view. Wearing a body-hugging Herve Leger bandage dress to absolute perfection, the 61-year-old again showed what a combo of good genetics and wise lifestyle choices can do for a grandmom’s looks.

What she didn’t show off were any obvious signs of plastic surgery. We love the absence of botox-freeze, trout-pout and the mask-like face celebs frequently sport when they go overboard with the fillers. (Seymour, like Helen Mirren, knows that growing older beautifully means letting some signs of aging stay put.) How does she keep that girlish figure? USmag.com quotes her as saying she likes “reasonably healthy food,” a bit of "Pilates, Gyrotronics with weights," and trudging through cold “country lanes in England.”

From Monica, Rachel, and Phoebe on Friends to Blair and Serena on Gossip Girl, here are the most memorable wedding dresses to grace the small screen.
If diamonds are a girl’s best friend, then fashion is the close friend who completes her circle. Style is unique to each and every one of us, but trends come and go to serve as fun ways to spice up our everyday looks or ways to try out something altogether new and bold. Even bridal wear captures trends each season (hello crop tops!), but brides to be must remember that just because it is being sold, does not mean that it is meant to be worn on one of the most important days of your life. This summer, fashion has a slew of great seasonal fads, but most of them just do not work for a wedding. If you’re on the fence about how trendy to be for your wedding day, here are five pieces to avoid during your wedding festivities.
We've done some strange things in the name of beauty (a butt facial for one), but these powerful ingredients would make us gag — if they didn't work so damn well.
The redeeming factor of summer, sadly, not being endless? New seasons require a different wardrobe, and there’s no time like the present to start your fall shopping. With autumn creeping up, I already know the boots and sweaters I’ll be heaving out of the stuffed containers under my bed that I think of fondly as my second closet…but there’s always room for fresh blood. I quizzed Shopbop’s fashion director, Elle Strauss, for help with getting the best strategy in place. Herewith, the 10 pieces she suggests picking up now (plus chic ideas for how to start incorporating them into your current closet).
We may have one more month left in summer, but pretty soon you’re going to have to start thinking about fall outfits. And what’s a bigger fall wardrobe workhorse than denim? Audit your closet to see if you own these jean essentials, and if not, consider adding them to your fall shopping list.
Maybe this sounds familiar: You fall in love with a sweet new face scrub and love it so much that you use it, oh, every day. Morning and night. Until your skin breaks out in protest. Or perhaps you’re in the once-a-year pedicure camp, and have to spend hours pumicing your callouses before even thinking about polish. Well, the laissez-faire approach stops now. It's not just which products you choose—but how often you deploy them. Here’s a quick rundown of how frequently you should be doing various at-home treatments.
