    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.

    As women we are all more than familiar with the phrase "pain is beauty." We may roll our eyes at the unfair sentiment, but we've all put on a pair of high heels and we know exactly what it means. Like it or not, when it comes to being beautiful, we've all at one time or another done something that makes us feel less than totally comfortable. It starts early -- with bras. After getting used to that not-great feeling, everything else is a cake-walk (on very high and pinching heels).

    But there have been some beauty and fashion trends throughout history that go past being simply uncomfortable. These trends and techniques weren't just uncomfortable, they were downright dangerous. Heck, in some cases, they were even deadly. GASP! I know, right? While I'm willing to take just a little bit of "ouch" for glamour, I shan't offer up my life to it.

    Lea Michele is everywhere lately, promoting her new solo album, Louder, which Glee fans and fans of diva-powered music everywhere are understandably beyond psyched for. But along with her new foray into pop music, Lea seems to have an eyebrow-raising new hairstyle.

    We've seen asymmetrical dresses and top hems all over, but asymmetrical bangs are a whole different story. Oh yes, Lea appears to be rocking fringe that's a party on the left, business on the right, and all around weird.

    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?

    Maybe we have shows like Say Yes to the Dress to thank for this, but most of us instictively want a bride to look beautiful on her big day. No one actually wishes a bride will come walking down the aisle in a total fashion faux pas, wardrobe malfunctioning, horrendous style nightmare, right? Unfortunately, it does happen, and we've got the pics to prove it.

    Check 'em out, if you don't mind cringing ...

    There are some beauty procedures that are loads of fun to do at home. Giving yourself a spa pedicure, for one. Even the more complicated things like at home highlights can be relaxing if you manage not to totally botch it. But there are some things you should absolutely leave to the professionals. This is something I am unhappy to report, that I am all too familiar with -- and I've got the literal scars to prove it.

    I'm not a very hairy person. I've got fair skin and fair hair and it's all sensitive. Don't believe me? I've got the lack-of-eyebrows to prove it. Seriously, it's like I've got some sort of eyebrow shedding disorder. It's a shame, too, because I've longed to go have my face-hair tended to -- there just isn't enough of it to allow for this luxury and rite of womanly passage.

    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?

    9 Reasons to Hate Flip-Flops

    I feel a certain way about wearing flip-flops. How would I describe that feeling ... fear and loathing, maybe? Abhorrence? Don't me wrong -- I love my bronze Havaianas. I don't judge anyone else who wears them out in public (unless we're at a formal event). And I completely understand how convenient and comfortable they are for a lot of you. Sort of. But I can't bring myself to wear them any place other than the beach or pool or shower of indefinite cleanliness. Why, you ask? Well, I could point you to this article entitled "Your Flip-Flops Are Grossing Me Out." Or I could show you in pictures.

    Melissa McCarthy and Sandra Bullock play badass buddy cops fighting a Russian mobster in their new comedy The Heat. But one of the biggest jokes the flick has spawned so far has nothing to do with the wacky plot or the kooky cast: The new U.K. poster for the film, which so obviously chopped off Melissa's face and neck in a case of gratuitous, post-production PhotoShop

    I mean, what entertainment biz upper mucky muck approves stuff like this? Who do they think they're kidding? It's not like we don't realize that the funny woman has a double chin. What's more, it's not like we CARE.
