Funny, I would have thought Tom Cruise got custody of all studded clothing in the divorce. She probably didn’t contest the leather vests or the buttless chaps, then. I’m glad they decided to be civil about the whole thing.

Grommets and studs are a fun and trendy way of adding texture and heft to an otherwise boring old shirt… see gallery above for details!

A trapezoid is smaller on top and bigger on the bottom, so it’s the perfect shape for disguising the extra junk in your trunk after all that holiday binging. Not that Julia Roberts has any extra junk in her trunk that needs disguising here. I honestly don’t know if she’s put on any weight. She could be exactly the same size she always was, or she could be in the early stages of her second trimester. We’ll never know in that dress. And that, my friends, is the whole point.

Plenty of binge-worthy trapeze-cut tops, tank dresses and tunics in the gallery above!

Melissa McCarthy has taken a huge step in the right fashion direction and you can really tell she’s trying here, so good on her for that. It just went a little wrong in the execution. A wrap dress is a great choice for her figure; the oversize floral print is not. The snakeskin clutch she’s carrying is gorgeous, but it’s too much texture and color for the dress. Her bold lip is the perfect shade of pink for her skin tone but the wrong shade of pink with that floral. She’s this close to getting it right. Except for the shoes, of course, which are every kind of wrong there is. They almost border on unholy.

THE FIX: A solid wrap dress in deep midnight blue or black violet and silver pointy-toe pumps instead wedge sandals. The clutch and the pink lips stay.

Check out seven ways to try a bold pink lip in the gallery above!

I don’t even like to say “denim on denim” because it sounds so terrible, but it was a huge trend this year, and when it doesn’t read like a Canadian tuxedo, it looks fantastic. Like on Alessandra Ambrosio here. Just copy everything she’s doing and you should be fine. Any deviations from the formula and you risk looking like a professional bull rider/ranch hand from Texas.

GET HER LOOK:

jeans: AG Adriano Goldschmied Stilt Cigarette Jeans ($188.00)

boots: Mango studded leather ankle boots (reg $109.99 sale $49.99)

Researchers at the University of Southern Denmark have mathematically proven that the universe could collapse on itself at any moment, and in fact may have already started collapsing all around us and just not reached our galaxy yet. Bummer, man. Researchers told the Daily Mail:

We have performed more precise calculations, and we see two things: yes, the universe will probably collapse, and a collapse is even more likely than the old calculations predicted.

Maybe the collapse has already started somewhere in the universe and right now it is eating its way into the rest of the universe. Maybe a collapse is starting right now right here. Or maybe it will start far away from here in a billion years. We do not know.

WELL then. This definitely justifies those new Jimmy Choos. And it should make scaring up a New Year’s Eve kiss a lot easier, too. Now when you tell somebody “Kiss me, the world could end tomorrow!” you can also show them the math to prove it. Then you’ve got them right where you want them, because you can’t argue with math. You’ve boxed them right into a Higgs boson corner, baby! They have to kiss you now!

Some of my fave New Year’s Eve-apropos sequined dresses in the gallery above.
