Other studies suggest that a smile is a major factor in the overall impression a person ... [full story]

He calls them "Baby Faces." Clients call them heirlooms. "When my charm arrived ... [full story]

Do you ever wonder how fashion trends make it from the runway to real life? Before clothes arrive on store shelves, every article must go through hundreds of steps and travel thousands of miles.

His eponymous menswear label has a loyal following including many stylists and their ... [full story]

Dentist. The very word evokes memories of noisy drills and aching jaw muscles - and pain. It's hard enough to force yourself to go for just routine maintenance, but for cosmetic dentistry? Even people who want to improve the look of their teeth and enhance their smiles hesitate when faced with the prospect of applying veneers. Traditional veneers usually involve the drilling or grinding of sensitive tooth structure, often requiring an anesthetic and painkillers after ... [full story]

When you step into a room, you get one free moment. In that moment colleagues and clients are making assumptions of who and what you are all about. If your visual integrity does not reflect your capabilities, it may take many further meetings to undo that first impression. Call it impression management, style or good grooming, the business professional knows the power of a positive image. Savvy business style requires more than an expensive suit! ... [full story]

When you get an invitation to a summer wedding, the heat is on. The burning question? What am I going to wear? (No, not "do I really have to go to this?" Of course you do!) "You put away what you really think and dress to repress. Er, respect," says Kimberly Bonnell, author of "What to Wear: A Style Handbook" (St. Martin's Griffin; $12.95), and an online style pro. After all, most couples getting married ... [full story]

Losing a dress size doesn't necessarily make you any smaller. Instead, it's a nasty trick the clothing industry is playing, an effort to hide from women of the world how big they really are. It's called vanity sizing - aka "the devil" to all female shoppers - where clothiers cut fabric large but label the finished product a size, or sizes, smaller than it ought to be. Voila, women have lost weight without shedding pounds ... [full story]

When those gray days of fall and winter approach, it's hard not to wrap ourselves up in that neutral color and blend into the background of stormy clouds and darkening horizons. But gray doesn't have to be dull and dreary, according to Leatrice Eiseman, color expert and director of the Pantone Color Institute. It can be very dependable.
