Should A Cosmetics Brand Be Expected To Play Politics?

Jenica Chuahiock | June 29, 2016 | Canada Style
It seems incredibly naïve to think that a profit-dependent, commercial venture is the final bastion of democratic values. Yet, in an age when companies are capitalizing on social responsibility, are brands unwittingly turning themselves into moral pedestals?

'Wear Pantyhose' And Other Dated Fashion Rules Our Moms Taught Us

Rhonda Scharf | June 24, 2016 | Canada Style
I think it's important that we don't cling to the rules our mothers taught us "just because that's the way it's always been done." If your legs look better with hose, wear hose. If you find that brown and black is not a good combination for your skin tone, then don't wear it. Don't be a slave to fashion rules -- old or new.

Sacha DeVoretz | June 23, 2016 | Canada Style
I love the summer time. Pretty, light, fresh makeup. It feels so much easier to wake up and just put on a touch of tinted moisturizer, some gloss and a bit of mascara and go! The ease of it is fantastic. To find out all the latest makeup trends for summer and how to keep your skin looking fresh, I spoke with Lori Taylor Davis, Global Pro Lead Artist, Smashbox Cosmetics.

What To Do When You Don't Know How To Dress Yourself

Barbara Aleks Hecht | June 22, 2016 | Canada Style
When it comes to creating outfits, the key words here are layering and accessorizing. Many women feel that their outfits are incomplete because they don't take this final step. Think of it this way -- putting clothes on and being dressed is like a simple, plain cake. Layering and accessorizing are the icing and decorations. Sure the plain cake will do, but how much better will the fully iced and decorated one look?

This Summer, Let's Embrace Our Swimsuit Bodies As They Are

Amy Gibson | June 27, 2016 | Canada Style
This summer, don't compare yourself to the spray tanned, filtered, posed, air brushed celebrity pics on Instagram and in the media. In fact, don't compare yourself to anyone. Love your body, as it is now. As it looks now. Don't hide behind cover ups and over-sized T-shirts. Be proud of your body. Love your body, as it is now. As it looks now.

My Wild And Beautiful Curls Bring Out The Courage In Me

Nicole Abi-Najem | June 21, 2016 | Canada Style
There is this sort of metamorphosis that takes place after I just let the unhindered wildness in me be totally and utterly free. When my hair is curly, no one is any longer running their fingers through my hair from root to tip, telling me how it feels silky. Instead, I feel the weight and strength of the curls on me.

I Am A Fat, Gay Man - And I Finally Love My Body

Frank Colosimo | June 24, 2016 | Canada Living
I crushed on guys who were "out of my league." I saw others get attention while I was ignored or rejected. I felt bad about my body, which was mostly fat, with little or no visible muscle. My face was pretty and my mannerisms were soft, leaving me pretty low in the hierarchy. So I took action.

What Clothes You Should Splurge On

Caroline Topperman | June 8, 2016 | Canada Style
The question is, how do you know when you should be pulling out your wallet and when you shouldn't? How do you know which piece is a real investment and which one isn't? Even if you can afford to splurge more often than not, sometimes there are better ways to spend your money.

Can You Wear A Thong At 70?

Linda Simpson | June 7, 2016 | Canada Living
Cher turned 70 recently. When I heard that, a question raced through my mind (don't ask why). Can you wear a thong at 70? At her age, where does a performer go with their public persona when it is tied to less is more in what they wear?

I Am A Fashion Chameleon

Inessa Radostin | May 30, 2016 | Canada Style
For most people, fashion is a way of expression; for me it was a support system. When I found myself lost or in transition I simply picked a new character to play and let that character loose in a mall. I would pick bits and pieces of the people around me and tried to imitate their appearance. In true alien mode, I formed myself to look like the inhabitants of whatever place I happened to be occupying at the time.

Aimée Wice | May 26, 2016 | Canada Style
The finale has been presented and the fun and excitement has been had for Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia. Although I previously had yet to take in the seemingly more sybarite presentations of the laid back yet poised superlative city of the Southern Hemisphere, I'm pleased as pie to have gotten to report on the collections this year.
