10 Eyebrows As Famous As The Men Who Own Them
Huffington Post - 3 months
By Adam Hurly for GQ. Good eyebrows are mostly genetic — plucking will clean things up, but it can only do so much. And no two pairs are alike for the same reason: Drake’s bushy brows might look good on him, but they’d seem funny on John Boyega’s face; Boyega’s magnificently arched, ultra-friendly brows would detract from Drake’s bad-boy cred, and so on. We hope you have two reactions to brows-ing this gallery: a newfound appreciation for geometry, and gratitude that we included exactly zero unibrows. DRAKE Drake must “Take Care” of his thick brows; they look like a painter’s perfectly graduated brushstroke, and strongly complement his dark beard and mustache. RELATED: The Lazy Man’s Guide to Eyebrow Grooming ROBERT PATTINSON Pattinson has tried some oddball hairstyles, but his eyebrows remain unchanged. They’re his most distinct feature, though we won’t discredit any other part of that made-for-Hollywood mug. DANIEL RADCLIFFE Radcliffe’s brows fan inwar ...

Woman Photoshops Celebs Over Pics Of Her Ex, And It's Hilarious
Huffington Post - over 1 year
Photographer and TV writer Kaitlin Kelly has a lot of great photos of herself saved on her computer. Unfortunately, many of them include her ex. Or at least they used to include her ex. When a friend jokingly suggested she swap celebrities into the pics, the 25-year-old was game for the challenge. Why let a perfectly good photo go to waste when you could have Jamie Dornan in it? Or Tom Hardy and "Outlander" hottie Sam Heughan with their arms around you? Kelly, who lives in Los Angeles, told The Huffington Post she was surprised how cathartic it felt to add the celebs into her old pics. "Humor truly is the best medicine," she said. "Seeing the photos makes me laugh and there's nothing like laughter to make you forget bad memories or awkwardness."  Soon, she gave the same treatment to pictures of her ex-girlfriend. Here's a night out with Megan Fox! And a cozy scene with Cobie Smulders: Eventually, requests started coming in from people who appreciated Kelly' ...

The Most Iconic Faces To Inspire Men's Grooming Over the Past 30 Years
Huffington Post - almost 2 years
This article was written by Emma McKay and was originally published on AskMen. On a crisp late January evening in Paris, in a sprawling bar, Le Perchoir, spanning several stories high above the streets of the 11th arrondissement, pro kiteboarder Youri Zoon ambles in for his interview. As we talk, the bar fills up with a who's who of Parisian cool, posing for photos and sipping bespoke cocktails: fashion industry savants, women in faux fur and big felt hats, avant-garde musicians. We're here to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Biotherm Homme, a high-end French skincare brand (disclosure: I was there as a guest of Biotherm Homme). Youri's passionate about his sport, and his enthusiasm shines through in his lack of canned responses. We talk about kiteboarding more than we do moisturizer. As the face of Biotherm Homme's Total Recharge line and the subject of the brand's new 360-degree Oculus Rift video (shot using six GoPros strapped to his head), Zoon's life exposes him to all the ...

Is That a Revolution in Your Pants?
The Street - about 3 years
SAN DIEGO (TheStreet) -- For years, Victoria's Secret has been the go-to retailer for luxury women's undergarments. But for men, there has yet to be an equivalent, market-dominating manufacturer whose name is synonymous with luxury men's briefs. Mathias Ingvarsson may very well change that. Ingvarsson, one of the entrepreneurs who brought the world the Tempur-Pedic mattress, has just launched Frigo a new line of luxury men's underwear that he describes as game changing. And he's betting that men will spend triple digits to wear his bold new underwear. They cost as much as $100 a pair. "I tried them on, and said 'It's the best thing I've ever tried.' " says Ingvarsson, CEO and founder of RevolutionWear, which makes Frigo. The company has merged technology, design and the best available materials to develop its product. Translation: These are far from your old-fashioned boxers or briefs. Also see: With Black Diamonds and Platinum, These Glasses Are a Vision>> Frigo hig ...

Tyson Beckford Proves That Being A Male Model Is Pretty Much Impossible
Huffington Post - over 3 years
We often hear about the demanding diet and exercise regimens of female models, but it's not often that we get a glimpse into the equally-as-disciplined world of their male counterparts. Turns out, being a male model seems downright impossible. At least Tyson Beckford makes it sound that way. The veteran model dishes about how he maintains his enviable physique in a new interview with Perth Now, in which he details his ascetic lifestyle. Each day, he says he does four to six hundred sit-ups and two hundred to 1,000 push-ups, as well as regular cardio exercises, like skipping rope and cycling. To maintain such a vigorous workout schedule, Beckford pretty much bans sugary foods, red meat and alcohol from his diet, which mostly consists of seafood, veggies and healthy fats, like olive oil. As for that stereotypical model diet of Diet Coke and cigarettes? As if. "It is true -- models do eat like that," Beckford says. "A lot of them have a Diet Coke and cigarette diet. I don't know h ...

Huffington Post - almost 4 years
The best ones make it look easy, but being an underwear model involves a good deal of hard work. Staying fit and healthy is especially key for models in the business of showing skin while showcasing their skivvies.

Tallia Storm: Diary of a 'Tiny Chancer' at London Fashion Week
Huffington Post - about 4 years
It's fair to say this wasn't your average school half-term break. The way I see it, as I pursue my music career, it's important that I keep all my "irons on the fire," eh? So off I went to London Fashion Week as a blogger and what a roller coaster ride it was. Scroll down to see photos from the event. As HuffPost Teen readers know already, I have a serious love of fashion. In fact that's an understatement. Since the age of eight when I got my first sewing machine, I have been dabbling in looks. However, I must admit it was when I started to combine my efforts with my big sister Tessie (15 years-old) that it took an exciting twist. She just seemed to know how to put looks together. I would have tons of clothes lying on my bed -- from hand-embellished T-shirts, sequin leggings, crazy tights -- and she would walk in and literally pull things together that at first seemed mad, but then just seemed to click. So naturally I enlisted Tessie as my official LFW stylist. (It's the ...
