Believe It: Winter Coats That Are As Slimming As They Are Warm
Attention, ladies: we are declaring the end of too-short, too-boxy and otherwise ill-fitting jackets and coats this winter. We are sick of seeing you in winter coats that don't work for your shape, and you should feel the same way. Since it's difficult to find a coat that is actually warm, but that doesn't resemble a marshmallow, here are some options, by body type, that should work for you: Apple: A single-breasted style with a belt like this Ellen Tracy Belted Wool Walking Coat ($188) creates an hourglass shape like, which is perfect for apple shaped gals (thicker or wider in the mid-section). Tall: Lucky girl, you can wear a long coat like this luxurious Eileen Fisher Alpaca Doubleface Long Coat ($398) without being overwhelmed by all that rich, luxurious alpaca. Pear-shaped: As a pear-shaped girl myself, I highly recommend this Laundry by Shelli Segal Belted Down Jacket ($236.25) because I happen to own it and I love it. The fur collar balances out my bigger hips/butt and the longer hem covers my upper thighs. Athletic: Your boyish figure needs a girly color and style like this Kate Spade 'Ela' Coat ($675) that'll cinch you in and create curves. Stay away from boxy cuts to avoid looking masculine. Petite: Because of your tiny stature, you can wear a bold colored short coat like this Burberry Brit Quilted Microfiber Jacket ($395). With not a lot of bulk and length, your smaller frame won't be overwhelmed. Read more of our dress for your shape posts.

Fall 2010 Report: How To Pull Off Leopard (All The Cool Kids Are Doing It)

Katy Perry And Christina Aguilera Bring The MTV Awards Red Carpet Fashion To a New Low
Sometime in the last decade the MTV Movie Awards Red Carpet has become a trashy, fashion free-for-all (I blame Lil' Kim and her sequined pasties.) Now, it's the one red carpet day a year when entertainers fire their stylists and wear the cheesiest, skimpiest, sleaziest mini dresses money can by. Add a blue wig and you get this year's fashion. Katy Perry's took her normally wacky wardrobe to a new level with a bright blue wig and a basically see-through mini-dress (save for some conveniently placed beading). Christina Aguilera's approach was more Old West hooker meets Can-Can dancer - which is just as bad as it sound. In the category of "girls who forgot the bottom half of their outfit"... Julianne Hough (who?), Stephanie Pratt, Whitney Port and Kristen Stewart all chose to go miniscule. It doesn't help that three out of four look like they had a peroxide and self tanner accident. Trying to go a better-dressed route? Check out our guides to the best summer dresses and shorts. Then see our favorite flat sandals for the season, and check out all of our celebrity style posts.
