Would you wear tights that look like they are melting?
Melting tights actually exist.
This time of year, we’re all about pairing tights with skirts and dresses to keep our stems from freezing and falling off. And actually, we think patterned tights can look pretty chic overall. But brace yourselves, ladies, because a new pattern has made its debut—and it’s probably not a look you’ve seen before.

The tights come in 14 different styles including Silver Melt Meltingtights “Limited Edition” tight, the “Multitone Bubblegum tight” (which kind of looks like a pile of melted, already-been-chewed gum in various colors, all mashed together) and a very bright neon yellow version, to name a few.
The tights will cost you around $55-$60 per pair.

Did anyone else hear wedding bells on the Oscars red carpet last night?
Then after the show, er, Oscars, it's the after party. Then after the party, it's the... Best Dressed List, of course. Nikki already picked her tops for the Academy Awards red carpet (did you vote yet?), so now it's time to see what the stars wore to the post-celebrations.
As I continue my personal campaign to swap out E!'s mani cam with a back-of-updo cam (and as a service to all the hardworking hairstylists who spent so much time creating beautiful hair looks for the 2014 Oscars), I'd like to point out that we miss a lot of gorgeous detail when we don't get the back view of a star's hair.
The bold new trend on the Oscars red carpet.
Trying new hairstyles is fun (have you picked up Allure Hair: The Ultimate How-To Hair Guide yet?).
When someone says “Julia Roberts,” you think teeth. You think hair. But while you may not immediately think fashion, she has had a pretty consistent—and consistently pretty—style since her Mystic Pizza days: clean, classic, menswear-inspired looks that let her natural beauty—and rightly famous smile—take center stage.

We’re at the tail end of a jam-packed awards season, with the grand finale—the Oscars, duh—just a few days away. We can’t wait to see what our favorite nominees wear—we already know Jennifer Lawrence will step out in a breathtaking Dior, while we hope to see Lupita Nyong’o pick another brilliantly bold monochromatic gown. As for which designer she’ll select—Gucci? Ralph Lauren?—that’s anyone’s guess.
