Q: I have been seeing a lot of great coats, but which ones are warm enough to get me through winter's coldest days?
Q: The deliberately contrasting, deliberately visible bra used to be a fashion "mistake" but now seems to be mainstreaming. Can I wear this to work? How can I do it so I don't look like I got dressed in the dark? Is this just for hipsters?
Q: I always put on scented deodorant and perfume. I have never tried to match their scents and have no idea if they clash. I mean, I can't smell me! Is there a deodorant that doesn't fight the smell of my perfume?
Q: I love my freckles. But my blemishes obviously don't inspire the same affection. What foundation evens skin tone but doesn't cover my freckles?
Q: What's the best way to care for cashmere sweaters?
Q: I have gigantic feet! Brands like Loeffler Randall and Belle by Sigerson Morrison used to make size 11, but I find fewer and fewer options. Are there other cool brands in size 11? Something between a Steve Madden and a Jimmy Choo? The brands at websites that cater to Sasquatch-footed women tend to be a wee bit obscure. Help!
She’s a movie star but hates being shot on the red carpet. She’s “a prude” but appeared topless. She’s a fashion icon but loves spray tans. Dunst is full of contradictions—and that’s exactly what makes her so much fun to interview.
"It's the classic '80s look redone here and there with surprising shocks of color."
Q: I have been told a million different ways to put on my blush correctly. I’ve heard everything from making a fish face to smiling, and I’m not sure which looks the best. What do you suggest? A: Smile. The fattest part of your cheek is where the color goes.
Q: I have thick calves and have a hard time finding jeans that are flattering. Boot-cut jeans look good, but sometimes I really want to wear a straight or skinny leg. Can you recommend any brands? A: The trick is to find jeans with little or no stretch.
Q: If someone has spinach in her teeth, a piece of lint on her shirt or toilet paper on her shoe, am I supposed to say something? Sometimes I just let it go because I don’t want to make the person feel self-conscious. A: The true friend—or, better, the true kind person—always, always says something. By “says” I mean whispers conspiratorially.
Q: I have a pretty intense physical fitness routine (outdoor running, yoga, strength training, etc.), which means a lot of sweat, exposure to the sun and tugging on my hair to get it back into a secure ponytail. Any recommendations for keeping hair damage to a minimum? And preventing that flat-and-limp, sweated-on look? A: You kind of have to embrace the sweated-on flatness and limpness.
Q: I don’t like to wear thongs! So … what’s the very best non–panty line underwear? A: I took this one to fashion director Anne Keane. Anne is a person whom you don’t even really want to ask fashion questions of; you just want to wear precisely whatever it is she’s wearing.
Q: So, I just turned 25 and still have no wrinkles (phew!), but I want to do the best thing for my face to prevent aging. I already wear SPF every day, but I never know what kind of face creams to buy specifically for antiaging. Should I be wearing anti-wrinkle cream, or will wearing it too soon make my skin immune to it in the future? A: If you have no acne and no wrinkles, I say live it up and enjoy your moment of perfection!
