Everything You Need To Know About Cryotherapy (AKA That Weird Thing Lindsay Lohan Instagrammed Last Week)
It takes a lot for us to describe something Lindsay Lohan does these days as unusual, but when the 28-year-old star recently posted a video on her Instagram showing her at a place called KryoLife, entering a chamber set at -256 degrees Fahrenheit, where she would spend three minutes freezing her nearly naked tush off, we thought: well, what the heck is this all about? Ladies, we give you cryotheraphy, a fairly unknown beauty and health treatment that has ancient roots and whose practitioners say it can help heal the body, increase energy, ward off aging, and, yes, make you look more beautiful... by making you really cold. Here's how it works: you book an appointment at a location like KryoLife in New York City, which is the only center on the East Coast (and one of few in the nation) that offers the treatment. A cryosauna operator instructs you to wear protection on your hands, feet, and private areas and then leads you to a cryosauna chamber, where you'll spend between one and three minutes hanging out in temperatures that range between -184 degrees F and -292 degrees F. The treatment is not painful, according to Joanna Fryben, CEO and co-founder of KryoLife, and clients quickly warm up afterwards, and are sometimes asked to perform a short cardiovascular exercise to help their bodies recover. The intense, but brief, burst of extreme cold is said to have health and beauty benefits galore. Some health experts say it can reduce inflammation, increase collagen production, which can help reduce cellulite and signs of aging, relieve joint and muscle pain, increase energy and improved mood, and even boost metabolism, though I should note none of these claims have been evaluated by the FDA. "Everything improves," Fryben said, adding that the treatments are particularly effective for women 35 and older, because they help balance hormone levels and reduce stress. "It's not only physical, but psychological--that's how it helps with overall appearance. You feel mentally and physically stronger over time." Athletes have long been privy to the benefits of cryotherapy, which they say help lessen recovery time between injuries and increase their overall stamina and well-being. And folks over in Europe, particularly in Switzerland and Fryben's native Poland, have been reaping what they say are the positive effects of cryotherapy for decades. But in recent years, American women and men who are not paid for their soccer skills, but are concerned about their appearances and aging (and, in the case of Lohan and other celebs and models, make a living off of their appearances) have turned to the therapy to see what all the hype is about. Fryben offers a cryotherapy facial--$45 per single three-minute treatment--which is different than the overall body treatment because it focuses on applying cold air to the face. In addition to producing collagen, the facial can help with certain skin conditions, including acne and psoriasis, Fryben said. One of Fryben's clients, who is a model, describes her skin after the facial treatment, saying it "looked like she slept all night and had a rejuvenating sleep," Fryben said. But, at the end of the day, is it all hot (or, rather, cold) air? A passing fad? That depends on who you ask. Some medical doctors who are unable to diagnose their client's mysterious aches and pains actually recommend cryotherapy, Fryben said, because it offers a safe, alternative way to possibly reduce pain and inflammation. "We are not doctors here," Fryben stressed. "Cryotherapy enhances what doctors are doing." She also noted that the treatment is not recommended for pregnant women or people who suffer from certain health issues, including untreated hypertension, recent cardiac surgery, and cold allergies. As far as beauty benefits go, some are critical of cryotherapy. Atelier Esthetique–trained Kim Laudati, who is famous for her anti-aging facials at Kim Laudati Skin Care, says she performs a lot of Coolsculpt by Zeltiq treatments, and that Coolsculpt is the only FDA approved permanent fat reduction method besides liposuction. "It's that effective when performed properly," Laudati said. "The science is exact. The fat cells are first to die and they die at 12 degrees Celsius. Any cooler and you do kill skin and muscle, which you definitely do not want to have happen! Coolsculpt is a body therapy specific for freezing fat cells in specific areas that have stubborn fat, such as a muffin top." Laudati argues that whatever skin tightening is occurring with cryotherapy is taking place because of the cellular death of tissues that you want to keep. "I just don't get it. Icing your face can leave a 'burn.' Skin can be irritated and you can actually kill healthy cells. That's why your doctor and physical therapists always tell you to wrap ice, never apply directly to skin! If you're lucky and nothing untoward happens, if the 'freeze' isn't created through machine technology, then your 'anti-aging' will only be very temporary. If it is machine applied, fat cells will die." Whether cryotherapy proves to have lasting anti-aging effects is up in the air. I've certainly heard of more unusual beauty treatments in my time. But the mere fact that Fryben has big plans to expand her business--she says she is slated to open at least three additional treatment centers on the East Coast--is proof that women and men are intrigued and keeping an open mind. And that they're more than willing to shiver a little for the sake of beauty.

Lindsay Lohan’s ‘Comeback’ Continues With A Tell-All Book We’re Totally Reading
It seems as if Lindsay Lohan is steadily setting the stage for a comeback. Yesterday, she posted a snap of her sitting in a recording studio to Instagram. Today, we hear the Mean Girls actress is shopping a tell-all book about her life. According to Crushable, Linsday's leafing through the diaries she kept in rehab to help inform this latest effort. TMZ says she's already sat down with publishing executives at Waxman Levall, and the meeting was filmed for her docu-series on OWN. Not gonna lie--we kinda missed LiLo and her less self-destructive antics. It's good to see her working and trying to move on from the past, but we wonder if it is too late for Lindsay to come back into the spotlight. Is this a desperate attempt for a washed-up "it" girl to return to her former glory? Either way, we will definitely be picking up this book if it ever gets published. Tell us what you think in the comments below! Want more Lindsay? Get into her courtroom outfits, gym gear, and find out what became of her Emmanuel Ungaro collaboration. [Photo Credit: Splash News]
Lindsay Lohan Wore 3.1 Phillip Lim Fall 2012 To Court Yesterday
The perp walk is the new step and repeat for Lindsay Lohan; as her scuffles with the law become become more and more frequent, her court outfit choices have eclipsed her red carpet ones. Last year, the Kimberly Ovitz dress she wore to a court appearance sold out immediately, yesterday she wowed courthouse onlookers in a white 3.1 Phillip Lim suit from his Fall 2012 collection. Her latest judicial style selection is a matchy-matchy top and bottom with a sheer neckline and sleeves, a slight peplum silhouette, and skirted trousers. As Fashionista pointed out, Lohan also accessorized with a rosary, which seemed to work for the Mean Girls star, who avoided jail time by cutting a plea deal in which she'll spend then next 90 days in rehab. So, this was also her "farewell" outfit, too. What do you think of it? SHOP 3.1 PHILLIP LIM NOW For more celebrity style--not in the courtroom--get Sienna Miller's printed pants, Jessica Alba's printed pants and Selena Gomez's accessories.

What Do LiLo, Miley Cyrus & Kate Moss Have In Common? These Siwy Short Shorts
What an interesting mix of gals to share a pair of Siwy Camilla Cut Off Shorts in Snowstorm ($165). First, Lindsay Lohan shows some skin with the super short shorts, while still trying to conceal herself from what is most likely a swarm of paparazzi. Then, Miley Cyrus (pre-gluten-free) is clearly at peace with her cut-off pair. And finally, we have ultimate style icon Kate Moss, who's perfected the look of cut off denim shorts with a pair of muddy wellies—as seen at many summer festivals by more stylish It girls than we can keep track of. What makes these shorts your top choice for summer is its bright white shade, which goes with just about anything in your wardrobe. Plus, Siwy claims these cut offs won't continue to fray or get any shorter. As if this tiny pair can get any shorter!

Why Does LiLo Look So Good? We’re Giving Credit To Genetic Denim And Court-Ordered Therapy
Refinery29 just scooped us to this photo of Lindsay Lohan looking unbelievably good -- we say "unbelievable" because the poor thing has looked pretty rough for months. From the stained, chipped teeth, to the over-done lips, our Lindsay has had a rough yea. I guess she's trying to end 2011 on a good note, because she just stepped out in L.A. looking like a bona fide movie star. Maybe it's because she's actually doing her court-ordered community service and therapy? Or maybe its just that pair of Genetic Denim Shane Cigarette Pants ($187) and a blow-out from Ken Paves...

Lindsay Lohan Shows Us How To Wear Spring Fringe (No, She Didn’t Get Bangs)
Lindsay Lohan and her L*Space Fringe Monokini While fringe often reminds us of warm Minnetonka boots and leather jackets (ala Sloane Peterson in Ferris Beuller's Day Off), it obviously reminds Lindsay Lohan of the beach. And surprisingly, we think Lilo's fringe swimsuit may be one of the few good decisions she's made in recent history--so good, in fact, we want to integrate the fringe trend into our own spring and summer wardrobes. Lucky for you, this L*Space Fringe Monokini is on sale for $97.60 (down from $122.00) here at Zappos.com. Or, check out some of our favorite trends in spring fringe below: (more…)
Lindsay Lohan Cleans Up For Court Wearing…Sailor Pants?
Lilo kept it classy but casual at court on Friday Okay, so it's definitely a step up from the taupe minidress, but Lindsay Lohan's (final?!) courtroom look, which she displayed at her April 22nd preliminary hearing , seemed slightly more fit for a day of shopping in Santa Monica than it did negotiating her imminent jail time. The 24-year-old actress wore a long-sleeved, black Wolford top, Lanvin sailor pants, and round sunglasses (which she allegedly wore INTO the courtroom). Lohan's Friday hearing resulted in less than 5 hours of jail time, which she got out of when she posted $75,000 in bail.

Lindsay Lohan’s Never-Been-Sold Emanuel Ungaro Dresses Have Resurfaced On eBay
Well, this proves our theory that everything ends up on eBay sooner or later... Four dresses from Emanuel Ungaro's famously-failed spring 2010 collection, designed by Lindsay Lohan, and, according to ELLE, weren't sold in stores, have popped up on eBay, and thanks to Imaginary Socialite's eagle eye, she caught them before they were scooped up.

Oops, She Did It Again: Add This Taupe Minidress To Lindsay Lohan’s Rap Sheet
We know Lindsay Lohan needs to stop frequenting the courthouse, but we can't help but follow her there. This time, she rocks a $724 Raquel Allegra taupe leather mini dress with classy black tights and booties. Looks like LiLo learned how to keep herself (and her panties) under wraps for the judge, unlike last time in this number. Could this be a sign for things to come? Or should we just thank her evil eye jewelry for helping her dress conservatively? (more…)

Lindsay Lohan’s Warding Off Bad Vibes With A $3,000 Evil Eye Jewelry
We know how much Lindsay Lohan loves to make a courthouse statement (remember that white dress?), so we couldn't help but notice her good luck charm this time around. Lohan was seen with a $3000 evil eye necklace, which hopefully wasn't stolen. And since evil eyes, like the Kara Ross and Tory Burch jewelry, are suposed to be lucky, we hope it works on Lohan's behalf. (more…)
Lindsay Lohan’s Arresting White Dress Sells Out Everywhere (But We Found It In Black)
White dresses are having quite a moment. First, everyone freaks out over Kate Middleton's white engagement dress and now, it's Lindsay Lohan. The white dress she wore to the courthouse, a Kimberly Ovitz white dress called the Camden Horton, sold out nearly immediately. We found it in black--and some similar versions, too: In our opinion, this is even sexier (though probably not exactly courthouse appropriate). Sorry, Lins. Grab the Kimberly Ovitz Camden Horton dress from Net-A-Porter now for $575. Still set on a white long sleeved dress like Lindsay Lohan's?

Top 10 Of 2010: The Worst Dressed Celebs (GaGa, Lohan, More)
As much as we love to look back on the year's best dressed celebs, we figured we'd round-up the worst dressed ones too: Jessica Simpson: Repeat Offender Come on, Jess, printed tents and picnic blankets do not make maxi dresses. Too bad you didn't learn that the first time. Lady Gaga: Most Likely To Get Stopped In Security Whether its 7 inch platforms or a white lace bra, neither of which are quite airplane appropriate. Britney Spears: Lifetime Achievement Award Yikes - we think a Dr. Phil "What Were You Thinking?" intervention is the only cure for Britney's poor fashion choices. Madonna: Head-To-Toe Hot Mess The queen of pop really has no other excuse as to why she combined swishy pants, argyle socks, and a fedora. And if she does, she should lie. Dancing With The Stars: Worst Of Prime Time Although we love see Kate Gosselin make a fool or herself, these 16 worse DWTS outfits were hard to watch. Christina Aguilera: Worst Coffee Run It looks like Christina is hiding more than just a genie in a bottle under her extremely baggy sweats. Lindsay Lohan: Most In Need Of Fashion Rehab Lilo's beyond ugly outfits might have something to do with why she's isn't Hollwood's next It Girl. Miley Cyrus: You Can Take The Girl Out Of The Country... Miley, we get it - you have nice legs. Stop dressing like a hooker to show them off. Gossip Girls: When Good Girls Do Bad Things Blake and Leighton are going to start their own gossip in these dresses, which should have been left in the bedroom. Katherine Heigl: Worst Cupcake-Like Confection The brown hair aside, we'd rather see Heigl's ruffled cupcake dress at a birthday party than on the red carpet.

Lindsay Lohan Could Use Another Intervention – This Time On Her Closet
Linsday Lohan has a little bit more to worry about than her weekly drug test. Since leaving jail/rehab, her outfit choices have been questionable at best (leggings under shorts?). While we're happy she hasn't had any more legal mishaps since she got out of the big house, she's certainly had a view wardrobe ones, and this outfit is one of them: What She Did Wrong: If she's going to wear short shorts, she cannot wear thick leggings under them. She should have gone with sheer tights, if at all. Her oversized olive, bedazzled green hoodie seems a little out of place on this sunny day. Are those velcro shoes (?!). What She Should Have Done: LiLo needs to swap that sherpa fleece for something a little more flattering. We recommend this Jarbo Oversized Sweater ($216) to go over a pair of leggings or skinny jeans. Instead of trying to wear denim over spandex, she should have combined the two with a pair of jeggings. We recommend these black Paige Verdugo Jeggings ($148) - they're thicker than the average leggings, yet give you the chance to exhale. When Lindsay gives her grandma back those sneakers, she's going to need something for her feet. With leggings, these Charlotte Russe Slouchy Booties ($25.50) are perfect. They only come up to the ankle and are just as comfortable as a pair of sneakers - without looking so athletic. We do applaud her sunglasses choice since aviators look awesome on everyone so grab a pair in black, they're edgy and will replace your large round plastic frames. These AJ Morgan The Rope Sunglasses ($20) are available in 4 shades - one sexier than the next. Check out more wacky celebrity outfits with more of our Red Carpet Re-Dos.

Lindsay Lohan Fans Show Support By…Going Tanning
Sad but true, the $5 billion industry has seen a 22% increase nationwide as of late--so much for that tanning tax. But thanks to convict Lindsay Lohan and the notorious pumpkins of the Jersey Shore, indoor UV tanning is becoming more popular than ever. Rallies were held to show support for LiLo ("We Miss You" signs included) at fake-and-bake place Beach Bum Tanning.

Red Carpet Re-Do: Add This Horrendous Outfit to Lindsay Lohan’s List of Woes
Lindsay Lohan is due in court today to sort out this whole probation-violation, lost passport thing - but it's probably easier to sort out her fashion woes, not her legal ones. While partying hard in Cannes last week, Lindsay wore this Hell's Angels meets hooker get-up. A good rule of thumb: get dressed before drinking, LiLo. What she did wrong: Lindsay has great legs, but if we've learned anything from Amanda Seyfried, there are much classier ways to wear shorts at night. It's almost June, and Lindsay is wearing winter trends head to toe: from the tuxedo jacket, to the black stockings and wool hat. She should definitely lighten up. There are only two appropriate places to wear a biker cap like Lindsay's: a theme party or a Village People reunion. What she should have done: Lindsay should have gone for a chain necklace like this Simply Vera by Vera Wang silver-tone chain-link ($22.40, down from $32) to satisfy her biker urge instead. Lindsay should try turning heads a better way - with pretty, understated pieces like this Ella Moss Parasol Tank ($78). We love the detail on the back - it's the start to a perfect summer outfit. Lindsay's shorts were a wee bit too short - let's leave something to the imagination. We absolutely love these BCBG MAX AZRIA Micro Sateen Shorts ($118). The satin is chic for nighttime and the length is just right. She should have skipped the stockings and gone with a bare leg and more seasonal-appropriate shoe - like a sexy neutral pump. We think these Steve Madden 'Caryssa' Pump ($89.95) are perfect - the high heel makes legs looked more toned. See what other stars have been off the fashion mark with all of our Red Carpet Re-Dos.

Lindsay Lohan Expands Her 6126 Line To Include Handbags (And Everything Else)
Lindsay Lohan designing for Emanuel Ungaro was short-lived, but the actress turned "designer" continues to grow her 6126 line, which started with just leggings, and will expand to include apparel, swimwear, shoes, cosmetics, and handbags, according to WWD. The 6126 apparel, which will launch in 2011 (above) looks like a higher end version of club clothes from Forever 21, but the handbags (below) are a bit more promising. Expect 12 styles from the line, priced from $165 to $395, to be in stores and online for holiday 2010. Get a sneak peek of the bags below: Lohan will also launch a less expensive diffusion handbag line, 7286 (her birthday), that will be available in Dillard's nationwide for 2011. She must be doing something right. Check out our guide to the best chain strap bags, the best evening bags, and the best overnight bags.

News: Proof Emanuel Ungaro Is Way Better Off Without Lindsay Lohan
WWD reported today that Lindsay Lohan, former Emanuel Ungaro "design consultant," wasn't present at the fall 2010 Ungaro presentation in Paris this morning, nor was she involved in design process-- and it shows. Ungaro designer Estrella Archs presented a collection of pretty clothes this morning that stuck to the Ungaro roots --bold prints and bold colors -- but that deviated away from last season's Lohan-influenced spring 2010 collection that was tacky and unwearable. Check out the drastic comparison shots--(on the left is Lindsay's collection and the right is sans Lindsay's input), plus similar pieces from the better runway show you can buy now. It's no surprise that Lindsay would suggest dayglo ruched leggings. While Lindsay lives in leggings, some of us have to work for a living. We much prefer the pair of cropped slacks from the fall 2010 show. These J.Crew Stretch Wool Cropped Trouser ($118) can be dressed up with a bold top similar to the Ungaro look. Without Lindsay's input: Oh, Lindsay. A triangle cut-out in the center of a dress works for about one tenth of the population. The photo on the right, though, with its one-shoulder on this fall 2010 printed mini-dress presented today is covered up enough to make it wearable. This Alice & Olivia Elyse One Sleeve Dress ($231) has a similar shape to the Ungaro dress. The sheer sleeve makes the dress feminine and sexy. At left, is Lindsay's train wreck of a dress. We are big fans of a deep v neckline--it opens up your torso and makes you look slimmer--but if boob spillage can occur, it's too low. The neckline on the red satin dress, however, looks like something we'd actually wear--and looks wardrobe malfunction-free. This Aqua red corset dress ($50, on sale from $168) also has a sweetheart neckline and the same rich red color as the Ungaro dress. See more of our fashion week coverage, then a roundup of the best celebrity dresses and celebrity shoes we want to wear.
Red Carpet Re-Do: Lindsay Lohan Dresses Like Aladdin In Vegas
At an event for Milan Fashion Week, Lindsay Lohan was a head to toe hot mess (as Christian Sirano would say) leaving us confused, and frankly a little uncomfortable. We know Linds has a house full of clothes, so why this particular combination? In this ugly edition of Red Carpet Re-Do, we show how Lindsay went desperately wrong--and how to make it better: What She Did Wrong: Sequins, prints and fur? We like mixing prints, but we're getting a headache. If a fashion genie could grant us one wish, we would ask that no one ever again be allowed to wear sequined, printed, drawstring genie pants. Big bangles or a chunky necklace, not both. Loose fitting clothes in dull colors like gray and brown are better suited as pajamas, not as red carpet attire. What She Should Have Done: Stick with simplicity on top if you're going bold on the bottom. Instead of Lindsay's furry vest, we recommend a more versatile tuxedo style. This vest by J.Crew ($148) can be worn casually during the day or dressed up for work or an evening event. Throw on a crushed silk tank top, like this one also by J.Crew ($65) and you've put together a classically chic look. Unlike Lindsay's heinous take on printed sequins, this DKNYC sequin mini skirt ($74.50) is seriously stylish.
