The Sky is the Limit for Holiday Hair
Huffington Post - 2 months
It's that time of year again. The holidays are here and many of us have calendars that are filled to the brim with everything from company parties to children's concerts. With all this activity, we want to feel that we look our best for all the seasonal events while avoiding wearing the same hairstyle that we wear during our everyday routines. For me, the go to for ideas is always the red carpets of Hollywood. Each year I look forward to watching the Critic's Choice awards because the show typically falls right in the middle of the holidays. It's great to watch my favorite Hollywood headliners dressed in the colors of the season which they pair with everything from casual to exquisite hairstyles. So many different starlets caught my eye this year. Let's start with Evan Rachel Wood and her asymmetrical look. When I say "asymmetrical", I am referring to when the hair is cut, or appears to be cut, different lengths on each side. This is a style that we have seen in the past and I p ...

Zoe Kravitz And Lisa Bonet Are Mother-Daughter Goals In New Calvin Klein Ad
Huffington Post - about 1 year
There's Kendall and Gigi, Taylor and Karlie -- but there's nothing that comes close to the bond between mother and daughter. Evidence: Lisa Bonet and Zoe Kravitz posing together in Calvin Klein's new Watches + Jewelry campaign.  With the tagline "life in the now," the mother and daughter duo hold hands and look joyful, encapsulating the feeling of living life in the present. What a clever way to sell something that tells the time!  All jokes aside, this is definitely a celebration of two of the most stunning human beings to ever grace the planet. Although Bonet and Kravitz have posed together numerous times in their lives (family photos and on the red carpet), this is their first major campaign together.  Recently, Kravitz co-starred in Balenciaga's Spring 2016 campaign, so it looks like this actress and musician might have more big-time modeling gigs later this year.  Take another look at the gorgeous Calvin Klein ad above and see the rest of the campaign below, featurin ...

Huffington Post - about 1 year
Two words: sheer perfection. Zoe Kravitz looked stunning at a Golden Globes afterparty in a very on-theme, see-through golden dress, beneath which she wore only underwear. Kravitz, who looked exactly like a clone of mom Lisa Bonet, is no stranger to showing off her figure. She's gone topless more than once in the name of fashion, and somehow manages to do it it oh-so-tastefully. We love how elegantly edgy this latest look is. Work, girl.    Also on HuffPost: -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Marlon Regis: C'mon, Michelle Obama, Time to Rock a 'Fro!
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
Admit it, we're just in awe of Michelle Obama aka FLOTUS. Whenever she speaks in public or surprises us presenting an Oscar Award, or makes an appearance on daytime's The View or Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, or is teaching other show hosts how to Dougie, we're so biased, not even considering a flaw or offering a flinch of criticism. After all, we save all that for her better half, President Barack. I bet if she appeared on DWTS or entered The Voice, no matter the horrid dance steps or croaking vocal mishaps, the voting public would ensure Michelle either a runner-up position, or bless her as queen victorious! Then there's her style -- blogged and reviewed by fashion outlets galore, never having too much negativity to say about her designer picks. From her casual wear of J. Crew to her ultimate in evening wear, Jason Wu, she's our flawless FLOTUS. And why not? She's not the one pushing through a new Affordable Health Care Act, or endorsing same-sex equality or tighter gun laws ...

    Age 19
    On November 16, 1987, her 20th birthday, she eloped with singer Lenny Kravitz in Las Vegas, Nevada.
    More Details Hide Details Bonet recalled of their relationship: It was interesting when we were first finding out about each other, that our backgrounds were so similar. When I first told him my mom was Jewish, and he said 'So's my dad,' I thought that was both unusual and enchanting. I felt like, 'Okay, here's someone who really knows how it is.' And I think I trusted him a little more with my feelings and let him inside a little more than I ordinarily would have.
    After being in beauty pageants and appearing in guest spots on television series as a child, Bonet landed the role of Denise Huxtable on The Cosby Show alongside Bill Cosby and Phylicia Rashad. In 1987, she briefly left The Cosby Show to star in the spin-off series A Different World, which focused on Denise Huxtable's life at college.
    More Details Hide Details That year, Bonet, then 19, accepted the role of 17-year-old Epiphany Proudfoot in the movie Angel Heart opposite Mickey Rourke, directed by Alan Parker. In the film, several seconds of an explicit scene she shared with Rourke were edited to ensure an R-rating. It was followed by a topless centerspread in Interview magazine. After announcing her pregnancy during the run of A Different World, Bonet left the series. The following year, she returned to The Cosby Show, but was fired in 1991 because of "creative differences". After The Cosby Show, Bonet began to accept jobs on straight-to-video releases and made-for-TV movies. In 1998 she had a supporting role in Enemy of the State with Will Smith. In 2000, she appeared in the movie High Fidelity. In 2003, she played the role of Queenie in Biker Boyz, which reunited her with former co-star Kadeem Hardison of A Different World.
