    When it comes to wanting an honest opinion about whether or not your ass looks fat in the skinny jeans you just spent 10 minutes trying to zip up -- don't ask your husband. And don't ask your mom or your best girlfriend either. (They'll all lie to your face.)

    If you want the truth -- seek out a kid. Actually, you probably won't even have to ask the question if you find said kid. He/she will take one look at you and say, "Your butt looks HUGE, Mom." Or, "Those jeans don't fit, Mom."

    You catch my drift. Kids have a wonderful knack for pointing out the negative aspects of our appearance without so much as a second's thought -- even though 99 percent of the time, they aren't trying to insult us at all.

    Could someone please help me? I've gone temporarily blind from seeing something I didn't want to see this morning. Something my brain is desperately trying to forget. What was it again? Oh no, I remember now: Oh God -- it's the sight of Cher wearing glitter heart pasties. I would tear out my eyeballs now, but it's clearly too late. The damage is done. 

    Cher wore bright red, sequined, heart-shaped pasties in a performance for her "Dressed to Kill" tour. DRESSED TO KILL INDEED. This was just one of many eye-stabbing costumes the 67-year-old matron of glam wears in her show, including something that looks like her "Turn Back Time" strappy bondage bodice. Do you dare feast your eyes on Cher with glitter heart boobs? Do you?!?

    Khloe Kardashian tends to win the award for Most Universally Tolerated Kardashian, because she has no qualms tellin' it like it is. Even when it comes to her own least attractive physical qualities, fashion disasters, or wardrobe malfunctions -- or all of those in one!

    Khloe was recently chatting with ITN News about Kardashian Kollection for Lipsy and acknowledged that the red carpet "whoops!" she's sort of become known for isn't as horrendous as it sounds.

    Not too long ago, I turned 40...

    I was telling a friend that I'd be willing to trade in my Gen X status for that of a 30-year-old hipster who wears black-rimmed glasses (for statement, not vision, purposes). Then, I'd never have to admit that I spent the Saturday nights of my childhood hoping beyond hope that Charo would be the surprise guest on The Love Boat or that somehow, Shari and Lambchop would find themselves in an eerie episode of Fantasy Island where Shari was the puppet. (What, I'm the only one who wished for that story line? I think not.)

    No, I wouldn't know a lot of things like, the pain of seeing Chachi marry Joanie or the name of my first Cabbage Patch Kid or the "awesome" effects of Sun-In, had I not been a poster child for Generation X. Things like this:

    Awards season and its star, the Oscars, are great for a number of reasons. For the style-obsessed, that walk down the red carpet is sure to provide some fabulous moments. There are the dresses so gorgeous we'll remember them forever, and then there are the looks we'll remember ... for other waaay less glamorous reasons. Over the years, there have been just as many cringe-worthy gowns as stunning ones. And with the 2014 Oscars this Sunday, we're sure to see a lot more of the good -- and the very, very bad.

    Strangely, it's the weird and outrageous takes on style that stay with us, maybe even more than the heavenly couture that floats down past the flashbulbs. It got me thinking: We're always looking to celebrities for inspiration when it comes to how we dress and style our hair. Why not see how the average person looks trying on their more, um, "unique" outfits?

    Fashion is a fickle beast. The plaid skirts we loved in days gone by are quickly put aside in favor of the plaid flannel shirts we all must have today. There are some trends whose deaths break our little heart into a million pieces -- I'm still waiting for jumpsuits to REALLY come back.

    Sure, we've all got the odd vest or pair of espadrilles hanging out in the hopes that they'll come back in vogue. Then there are those trends we could not get rid of fast enough. You know the ones I mean. I'm talking about the trends so god-awful that you couldn't even con YOURSELF into keeping them hanging out in your closet "just in case."

    When I think Kmart, I don't think crazy, risky fashion. I think practical tops and also a place to buy cereal in a pinch. Also laundry baskets. But when I think Nicki Minaj, crazy, risky fashion choices are totally de rigueur. That's why her pairing up with Kmart to launch her fashion collection seemed so totally bonkers. Not that I was entirely opposed. After all, I love bonkers.

    From her appearance at the opening night of her line, Nicki isn't going to disappoint. At least, if her own ensemble for the evening was anything to go by. Woman arrived in a bubblegum pink car! This is not the entrance of a lady who plans to compromise her aesthetic for anyone -- not even a company selling her clothing line.

    Fashion Week is drawing to a close in New York. The designers are jetting off for celebratory mini-breaks, and the models can finally sit down for longer than two minutes. While it was here, it was the epitome of glamor, style, and creative invention. It gave us enough gasp-worthy looks to get us through until the Spring.

    But some of those gasps weren't of appreciation. Take for example the Plastic Surgery Fashion Show. Yeah. That's a thing that happened. Leave your self-esteem at the door, for verily, you'll have no need of it here. Featuring the "fashions" of Dr. Ramtin Kassir, his former patients strutted down the runway, showing off their nose jobs and their perkier racks. How was this show received by the fashion world?

    Well, it's Hump Day, so there's no better time than right about now to discuss Kim Kardashian's monstrosity of a floral carpet dress -- with matching(!) gloves and shoes, high slit, and baby bump -- she wore to the Met Gala in NYC. There has since been an inundation of reports about what an amazing fail in fashion this dress was (be sure to check out ours!). And the backlash continues to bring all of us closer together ... come on, it's just not a good look.

    But no one had a greater response to this dress disaster than comedian and actor Robin Williams. As you can see from his hilarious tweet above, Williams pulled off the exact same look in 1993's Mrs. Doubtfire -- and needless to say, he definitely did it better! How amazing is that. It's practically the same exact oufit, and that's just scary.

    I recently read a sentimental piece about the 30 things every woman should have and know by 30. Shockingly, I could check many of those items off my to-do list. What's more shocking is that I'm not 30 anymore, not even close.

    A whole decade has passed. Where did it go? An amazing husband, multiple careers, a recession, two incredible children, and the blink of an eye later, I'm 40. There are many subtle yet life-changing differences a decade makes, which is why in my attempt to embrace existence (numberically speaking), I wrote this list. (This may not be as sentimental as its predecessor, but hey, I'm a humor columnist.)

    By 40, you should have …
