My Wool Shake Brings All the Boys to the Yard

I can’t get enough volume in my hair. I sleep with it wet, make it all kinds of knotty and use hair spray like it’s my job, all to make my hair high. And those beachy Gisele-like waves?

Glam from Fashion Week: Naked Eyes

At the Fall 2010 runway shows of designers Juan Carlos Obando and Narciso Rodriguez, there was something strangely absent from the faces of all their models: mascara.

It was, as Campos put it, “a thank-you to Mexico; they’ve done so much for me and my career.” And what a thank-you it was!

I got engaged recently. Actually, I got engaged in August, but it still feels pretty recent. But the reality is, the wedding date is set for Sept. 3 and I’ve got to get my butt in gear. There are flowers to pick, cakes to taste, shoes to buy and, of course, hair and makeup to consider. I know a lot of girls start growing their hair out for their wedding…but I’m not sure why. Is it just a thing we do, almost involuntarily, like twirling our hair when flirting?
