Women of Game of Thrones Out of Costume

GOT1

No doubt about it, Game of Thrones is one of the hottest shows in Television right now, if not the hottest. And their stars are just as hot. Kind of makes you think they really are characters from a long time ago, don’t you? Except they aren’t, and when they’re out of their Game of Thrones costumes, they’re just as regular as any, well, regular person.

Take for example Gemma Whelan, who stars as Yara Greyjoy—Theon Greyjoy’s feisty (not to mention much, MUCH smarter) sister. You would think she’s just any other plain Jane out there, but the truth is, she couldn’t be any more feminine with her taste in clothing. He features are much softer as well.

Sophie Turner, who plays the lovely Sansa Stark is every bit the fashionista everyone imagines her to be. And with her long, beautiful hair, would you have it any other way?

And Maisie Williams,who plays the tomboy Arya Stark, Sansa’s younger sister, is definitely a sweet surprise to behold every time you see her out of her filthingly boyish Arya clothes and out and about. Her choice in fashion is just wonderfully and fantastically girly. What a sight for sore eyes!

Gwendoline Christie, as the great Brienne of Tarth, may just shock you once you see what she really looks like in real life. She’s a real beauty! Nothing, nothing at all like Brienne the tart! Go check it out for yourself!

These are just some of the lovely ladies of Game of Thrones. Now aren’t you glad you’ve watched the show? If you haven’t yet, maybe it’s high time that you do!

Mirror, mirror on the Wall? Who’s got the Worst Teeth of them All?

Bad Teeth

We kinda got the hang of seeing celebrities having insanely beautiful sets of teeth so the concept of some of them having the complete opposite is something that we’re having a real hard time getting a grip of.

But not until you see these celebrities that you’re going to realize that—hey, we’re not messing with you. These celebrities really do have bad teeth. Some of them though, looks like the writer was just plain exaggerating.

Perfect examples are Vanessa Paradis who has gap teeth and Avril Lavigne who has this vampire thing goin’ on. I mean, so what? It adds to their charm! Just look at Madonna who had her gap teeth fixed, then went back to ‘unfixing’ it soon as she realized that it was all part of her million-dollar package.

But hold on. Some celebrity teeth are just plain ugly. Not just ugly, but completely unhealthy. Just look at Lindsay Lohan’s teeth. It looked like it was already rotting from too much drug use. However, due to her comeback, her teeth now look like this. Pretty cool when you got oodles and oodles of cash huh?

Alright, let’s look at the rest of the list. Ricky Gervais… Gary Busey… Hmmm. Why does it not bother us that much if it’s the men who has ugly teeth?

Anna Paquin and Clint Howard also have gap teeth. If you really think about it, are gap teeth ugly?! I don’t think so!

So the next time you’re feeling a bit down about your not-so pearly whites, take a look at these photos again. They don’t look like they’re having such a bad time, are they?

So strut your teeth girl! There’s no other way to do it!

5 of the Most Famous Fashion Designers of All Time

The 20th century was what we can truly call the start of a fashion revolution—and it has brought forth some of the biggest names in ‘haute couture’ and style. Find out who they are, and if you have anything in common with them.

Donatella
Donatella Versace

If there’s one word to describe this woman, it is fierce. After the murder of her brother, Gianni, the original head of the Versace empire, she took over and took fashion to a whole new level. This just proves that she’s not the lesser sibling among the two. Through her, Gianni Versace lives on in style.

Armani
Giorgio Armani

This Italian gentleman is known for his clean and tailored designs, no wonder he’s famous the world over. He is actually one of the first few designers to stop using too-skinny models in his shows. Way to make a statement eh?

Ralph Lauren
Ralph Lauren

Would you believe that this billion-dollar man started his empire in a tiny cubicle at the Empire State Building, with only a desk to keep him company? Now look at how far he’s come. He’s now worth $7.5 billion. A true rags-to-riches story!

Coco Chanel
Coco Chanel

The Chanel brand is one of the most coveted fashion brands in the industry, known for its luxurious simplicity. She was included in the list of Time 100: The Most Important People of the Century.

Calvin Klein
Calvin Klein

Calvin Klein is known by a lot of his friends in the industry as a charmer, and was reported to be largely envied by his long-time rival Ralph Lauren, as he certainly knew how to work his charm among the most famous people. We certainly wish we were like him too!

So what do you guys think about these names? Do you identify yourself with any one of them? If you have dreams in fashion, make one of them your model—possiblities become limitless and success becomes more apparent when you channel the power these people have!

Weird Fashion

banana 3

Well Fashion Week is long gone but it doesn’t hurt to go back to it once in a while to get fresh ideas with your own ensembles.

It’s true that most of the pieces that were worn by the models sashaying down the runway would cost an arm and a leg, and some of those pieces really are really worth ‘investing’ on but some of the other ones look just plain wrong!

Want some proof? Check these photos featured in metro.co.uk out! I don’t even know where to begin!

But well, leave it to the great designers of the world to create something from whatever inspiration they could find (or lack thereof) and call it, for the love of art, “what’s hot in fashion right now.”

We’re pretty sure that some of these are still going to end up a certifiable hit, and no doubt the kids of today are going to go gaga over it, but still. We wish that Tsumori Chisato was able to think of a better looking hat than the one this model has perched on her head. It looks so much like a mortarboard that college students wear in their graduation!

Banana 2

And what about this one? Is that a banana? A thin slice of papaya? Or a really, REALLY large, overgrown pepper?

Banana 1

Whatever it is, we can’t make heads or tails out of it… Her sweater’s nice though. I love how colorful it is!

Ok. Focus. We’re still talking about weird fashion after all.

Well that’s fashion week for everybody. Lots of hits, and a lot more misses. But all the same, we still can’t wait for next year!

The Big Dilemma of Losing Weight: When is it the right time to buy new clothes?!

Fashion-and-me Chubby 56

Nothing beats that feeling when you try to lose weight and you just keep going and going until you slowly start to see the results: Your waist is getting smaller, that double chin is starting to disappear, and your facial contours are becoming more pronounced.

But the best part of all? You’re finally beginning to shrink away from your clothes! Especially those dreadful jeans that can fit at least 4 children in there. UGH!

It pays to see the results of all the hard work you’ve been doing, and you start getting that itch once again. That itch of rewarding yourself with, what else?! SHOPPING!

But is it the right time to buy new clothes? Keep reading to find out.

Is it time?

Most of those who try to lose the excess fats have a specific weight in mind. So for example, if you’re halfway down your goal, it may mean that your old clothes could be flapping around you already. Buy clothes that fit, but make sure you set a limit to it, as they’re only temporary.

Buy from Surplus Shops

And why not? There are plenty of clothes out there that are pretty decent. And besides, if you’re really serious about going all the way with your weight loss, you’re only going to be wearing it for a little while longer.

Splurge when it’s time

The right time is when you have finally reached your target weight. THIS is when you know you truly deserve a reward for ALL THOSE MONTHS of working out!

Make it your goal. See it as your finish line. Nothing’s sweeter than knowing that at the end of the road, you have a whole range of fashion choices you can make for your lithe, gorgeous body.

See you there!

Shake that Shape!

Listen up ladies. Just because you’re not as skinny as Kate Moss—or any other celebrity out there—doesn’t mean you’re no longer attractive. HEY. Before you close this window, you need to know that this isn’t a gimmick at all to make you buy anything you don’t need.

Your clothes may be on the plus size rack but that’s alright. But just to be sure you make good fashion choices, here are a few tips you might find handy the next time you decide to add something to your closet.

Find Your Size

A lot of women think they can get away with the shape of their body by “hiding” in something that’s two to three sizes bigger. Well let me tell you ladies, that won’t work. At all. The only thing you’re going to end up looking is BIGGER. So shop for your actual size—and go from there!

Color’s Good

Remember when someone told you that the safest color for plus-sized women is black? Well that may be true—but it’s the safest color for anybody, right? Your outfit, no matter what your size, if all in shades of black and dark, still deserve a pop of color every once in a while to give life to it. So add colorful accessories like your shoes or your bag. That’ll certainly liven things up.

Invest in Lingerie

You read that right, girls. Invest in lingerie. You’ll feel sexier, more feminine in it, and your partner’s going to love that look too.

You’re just as beautiful—just with a shape that’s more “pronounced”. But you can still shake it, can’t you? And there are different ways to enhance that, so always be adventurous! You’ll feel more confident and more at ease with yourself.

Do You Want To Be Stylish Too?

It’s ridiculous, but some girls are just more lucky than others. It seems so unfair but why does it always seem like—no matter what they’re wearing, no matter how disheveled their hair is, they STILL always seem to get everything right? Everything!

And here we are, always trying SO HARD to look good. But for some reason, something always seems to come out wrong. Why?

Well, according to some experts, there are some things stylish people do differently than us—gasp–ordinary people. If you want to be like them, learn some of the tricks of the trade.

Know What Flatters You

It’s that simple. You need to know what are your best features—and work on them constantly so you can achieve a good look for yourself.

Accessorize

The key is partnering your outfit with key pieces that would accentuate your look, not kill it. It could be as simple as a purse, a belt, or any statement piece that would catch the eye and draw it to the rest of what you’re wearing. Remember, don’t make it compete with your clothes. It’s the wrong thing to do.

Splurge Once In A While

We know how this would sound, but really, it makes so much sense. Why purchase a bag that you know is going to break in just a few months? Don’t be scared to buy something you know will last. You could make it your statement piece.

These, ladies, are just some of the things that ultra-chic and stylish people do that set them apart from the rest of us. Maybe it’s time that you do the same. It could be life changing.. and invigorating.

There’s More To Women Than Being Fashionable…

You can’t be fashionable and take your personal hygiene for granted. It’s just not right.

Golden habits need to be nurtured no matter how basic. Starting now.

Keep Hands Clean All The Time

It’s very simple, but too many people take this golden rule for granted. So we’re here to remind you. Again. And again and again if needed be. Wash your hands after using the toilet and before eating meals. It can very well save your life—or someone else’s.

Keep Breath Fresh

You know the deed: Brush, floss, gargle. But there also are a few essential things you need to do to make sure your breath doesn’t smell like an old sock at the end of the day: Drink lots of water, eat your veggies and fruits, go easy on the coffee, avoid sugary gum, and eat yogurt.

Front To Back

After peeing, be sure to wipe your nethers. But when you do it, make sure you wipe from front to back—not the other way around.

Wear Clean Clothes

Dirty clothes, when worn over and over again without washing can and WILL cause scary skin disorders to grow. Don’t ruin that skin of yours because you like how you look in that sexy sweater of yours.

Bath Poufs and Sponges

You might like the feel of using bath poufs and sponges but did you know these scrubbers are breeding ground for bacteria too? Experts say you can only use them for less than a month, but since that just feels so wasteful, toss it with your warm laundry—and you can continue using it for at least another month.

Fashion isn’t just about looking good, it’s also about feeling clean. So make these a habit, you’ll feel better if you do.
