Selfies: we've all done them (don't lie, we saw it on your Instagram!), but how do you master the art of taking a good self-portrait? Our reporters Matthew Rodrigues and Allison McNamara are laying down the ground rules for success. There's a lot to think about: How's my background? Does this selfie have good lighting and a purpose? Watch on and keep these helpful tips in mind next time you solo "smize" to the camera. And after you watch, snap your best selfie and share it with us using our hashtag #popselfie.
Don't let the lazy Summer days fool you, celebrity style is still fierce. The most obvious example of the star power in this week's looks starts with Kate Moss — who stepped out of the Serpentine Gallery Party in an all-black look that's all at once glamorous and edgy — but it doesn't stop there. Alice Eve and Sarah Jessica Parker brought their own noteworthy styles to London for the Serpentine festivities, while back at home, Sandra Bullock continued her red carpet comeback for The Heat. There's still more where that came from — keep clicking to see this week's top 10.

We also zoomed in on Cameron Diaz and Kate Upton's The Other Woman on-set style wardrobe, spotted a surprising trend on Miley Cyrus, and scoured Instagram for all the updates on Narciso Rodriguez's chic wedding.
