Poise introduces a new approach to women’s wellness. Here’s what real women say about menopause, weight gain, feminine dryness, hot flashes and more.
The Teen Choice Awards took place last evening, and minidresses proved to be the popular choice on the pink carpet. Selena Gomez, who celebrated her 20th birthday on stage with cupcakes and sparklers, stood out in a hot-pink number by Dsquared2. Nina Dobrev also went bright in an emerald J. Mendel strapless, while Taylor Swift went neutral in a cream Maria Lucia Hohan. Another standout was Lea Michele in a metallic Versace mini, showing off a major color trend for the upcoming season. Watch today's Fab Flash and let us know which mini was your favorite from the award show.
Summer is the perfect time to experiment with hats and who better to look to for inspiration than hat extraordinaire Blake Lively? She's one star that doesn't discriminate when it comes to hats. She loves them all from cloches to floppy styles and even sporty baseball caps. If you're hat shy, allow Blake to break you out of your shell. Check her out in many different styles, then shop your favorites for yourself.
Going on a cruise can put you in quite the packing conundrum — anything can happen, so you want to be just as prepared for lounging poolside and sightseeing adventures as you are for swanky dinners and hitting the dance floor. To get you ready for your on and offshore excursions, we've put together four chic ensembles that will keep you sailing in style. Click through to see and shop each one.

While arriving at LAX airport, Jessica Alba showcased yet another stellar travel look working a denim jacket with black satin baggy pants, a colorful printed scarf, and her Tory Burch fedora. The actress has been deemed the queen of layering by her stylist Brad Goreski and that trait comes in handy during globe-trotting. Jessica accessorized her solid separates with silver python Alexandre Birman flats, a few beaded bracelets, and pink card holder. Take a cue from this trendsetter by pairing a denim jacket and black satin trousers with an eye-catching scarf and fedora for a day of errands or switch the pants for a flirty dress when meeting the girls for brunch.
Leave it to Victoria Beckham to look insanely chic in black and white while on a shopping spree in Paris. The designer strutted her svelte stuff in a white Jil Sander collared blouse, which she tucked into a black column-style maxi skirt by Maison Martin Margiela ($875). Her accessories included a black Victoria Beckham satchel, which she held on to, her signature oversized square sunglasses, black platform suede Giuseppe Zanotti booties ($795), and a chunky rose-gold watch. While this outfit might be a bit too fancy for your next retail excursion, it would look appropriate for an important meeting at the office. Just pair Victoria's exact blouse, or any other crisp white top, with a black maxi skirt, and chic accessories. Looking luxe like Victoria, you'll surely have everyone's attention.
Free People got it just right for their latest Summer lookbook, matching their effortless cardigans and cover-ups to the Maine coastal landscape. It's just what you'd want to throw on with your bikini, a worn-in varsity jacket or rugby-striped cardigan to lend a dose of that New-England prep, even if there isn't a lobster bake on the shore in your immediate future. We might be stuck in the city, but we're shopping this newest crop of boy-meets-girl, beach-to-street essentials to channel the same impossibly easy play on cutoffs, sneakers, and our favorite tees right now.
Jessica Alba has a brand-new Summer bag and the lucky winner is Dolce & Gabbana's coral crossbody bag from its Miss Sicily collection. She was first spotted wearing it over a plaid dress and gray sunglasses, then she carried it with a printed Zadig & Voltaire tank and jeans while spending time with her family in LA. If you've been looking for a colorful bag to brighten up your Summer wear, consider Jessica's Dolce & Gabbana purse, retailing for $1,675 in stores. Check the site's store locator to inquire about its availability or get this similar but less-expensive Marc by Marc Jacobs coral crossbody bag ($428).
While we all love a good strappy sandal to complement a fabulous dress, sometimes it's good to pick a pared-down shoe to let the dress do all the dazzling. While celebrities haven't ditched their detailed sandals altogether, they are totally feeling the minimalist ankle-strap sandal trend at the moment. Jennifer Connelly wore her black Givenchy sandals in NYC, Rihanna wore a red pair with a white ruffle skirt, and Kim Kardashian chose a black Christian Louboutin pair with her Stella McCartney number. Check out all the celebs who are feeling minimalist sandals, then shop the hot trend for yourself.
