(Bauer Griffin) Helena Christensen looks good in everything.
Helena Christensen is a SUPERMODEL, so when she writes a whole story in the Telegraph about how to look good in lingerie, well, we're going to take it with a heaping trough of salt because, let's be real, the woman is professionally and genetically predisposed to looking good in lingerie. That said, we like this idea:
Lingerie is the first thing you put on at the start of the day, so you should make it a lovely little moment that makes you smile. Getting ready in the morning is a nice ritual, and if you do have a little extra time, try to make the most of it. I love the Middle Eastern traditions of cleansing yourself, applying body oils and really indulging. It may sound over the top, but try lighting a candle in the morning while getting ready, whether you have five minutes or 50 minutes. Even if you can only manage it once a week, there's something about the scent and the low flickering light that's good for early starts. It means that, whatever else happens in the day, at least you had a nice beginning.Sorry I'll be coming in late to work every day this week. [Telegraph]

Here's everything you need to know about The Host, Stephenie Meyer's Twilight series follow-up film. Also this: "Aliens are much more my roots than vampires," Meyer said. "I grew up reading science fiction and fantasy. I never really read horror. Before I wrote Twilight, I never read a book with a vampire in it. Whereas aliens, I feel totally comfortable with. I love aliens... they feel like a more realistic fantasy." Okay then. [Mirror]
Does anyone remember back in the 1990s there were these public discussion forum board things and there was one called alt.beauty where you could log on to share tips and product reviews with other beauty fanatics—and even trade products by snail mail and do this weird Secret Santa thing everyone did every year? Well, sounds like that community is back in its 21st-century incarnation. Everything old is new again! [Fashionista]

How to dress when you're expecting, according to the very fabulous Margherita Missoni - "Silk pajamas are going to be my summer choice—the baby isn't due until late August, so it's going to be really hot in Milan.
