Headbands with ears
No, you're not hallucinating: This trend is actually happening.
Well, girls, you no longer have to wait until Halloween to put on a pair of bunny or cat ears, because your favorite stores are selling headbands with ears as we speak, as regular hair accessories (not costumes). And no, it does not appear they are joking. They are dead serious. Apparently, ear headbands are an honest-to-goodness mainstream trend.
This one's from BCBG Max Azria (one of my go-to sources for cocktail dresses to wear to weddings -- can you imagine if I rolled into the church with these on as well?).

Now, it's not like this is the first time ears have ever popped up in the fashion world. We've seen them on the runway, with designers like Marc Jacobs adding them as a quirky attention-getter, and back in August I wrote about a random Asos cat-ear headband I found oddly appealing (you guys agreed it was cute, but only as costume-wear). But who knew they'd become so widely available all the sudden? I've yet to see anyone actually wearing them while walking down the street, though, so maybe retailers are barking up the wrong tree with this idea.

Now it's time for you to tell me what YOU think about this ear-headband business. Is there any way you'd ever wear one of these things? If so, where and how? I need details.

Sunglasses: it may seem counterintuitive to invest in a wintertime accessory traditionally viewed as a sunny, warm-weather item. But spring is on the way and we’re also currently being exposed to crazy amounts of UV rays—and then, of course, there’s the reflective snow situation.
Some people look younger than they are, some look older. Even those with easy access to BOTOX and personal trainers. Can you guess the age of these celebrities?
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.

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. Here’s how she has elevated that look over the years.

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.
