Here’s the Back of Gwyneth Paltrow’s Head on Harper’s Bazaar’s Redesigned Cover

Putting Gwyneth Paltrow on the cover of a fashion magazine is hardly a groundbreaking move. But featuring the back of her head, as Harper's Bazaar does on the subscribers' cover of their March issue — well, that's certainly something new. “It’s a very daring thing to do, where you don’t immediately see her face," Glenda Bailey told WWD. The cover is part of magazine's big new redesign, which also includes new fonts (Didot Caps, Didot Italics, and Gotham, should you be interested), a larger overall size (by one inch), new section names (they now mostly begin with the, as in "The List"), and thicker paper. WWD likens the changes to major plastic surgery: "It’s like the party guest who you recognize when she enters the room, but you know she’s had work done — a lot of work."

There's also some changes in the magazine's content, including more beauty coverage (ten pages instead of  four in every issue), a new travel section ("The Escape"), a monthly "Best-Dressed" column by Derek Blasberg (previously just an online feature), and less focus on celebrities. Other things to look forward to in the March issue: an article about Sarah Palin by Mark Halperin and John Heilemann, and 24 hours in the life of Tom Ford (Spoiler: He gets up at 4:30 a.m., takes two baths, and eats two doughnuts).

The redesign is being hailed as the first official issue under former Elle publisher Carol Smith, even though she joined the magazine last May. Ads for March are up 16 percent to 271 pages, which means the magazine still lags behind VogueElle, and InStyle.


5 Tips on How to Extend The Life of Your Clothes

Whether you're obsessed with fashion or just want to go as long as possible without shopping, taking good care of your clothes can help keep them looking newer, longer. You can make them last longer if you care for them properly and there are some great ways to make sure you’ll have that favorite dress for a very long time.

Tip #1 - don't wash your clothes every single time that you wear them
I know this may sound gross to some people, so I will say that you have to use common sense and good judgment here. If you wear something and you get a big glob of mustard on the front of it, of course you need to wash it right away. When I say you don't need to wash your clothes every time you wear them, I'm basically talking about things that you wear for only a couple of hours or so. Like in the case of jeans, don't washed them every time you wore them instead, try hanging your jeans or shirt that was worn only for a couple of hours out in the sun. They will get freshened up in a hurry, and you won't have to put them in the washing machine.

Tip #2 - treat STAINS immediately
Stains are one of the most common ways our clothing gets ruined. If you leave a stain until the day you do your laundry it has time to dry and set in and will be even harder to remove. If you wash a stained item improperly this can also set the stain in and putting a stained item in the clothes dryer is almost certain to ensure a permanent mark. Rinse out a stained item with water immediately after the stain occurs or as soon as possible. If the stain is a grease or protein stain you can treat it with a bit of dish soap. Hot and warm water can cause stains to set in so only use cold water until you are sure the stain is gone.

Tip #3 – prevent Shrinkage
Shrinkage is another common killer of clothes. Clothing that is made out of natural materials like cotton and wool can shrink in the clothes dryer quite quickly. Items like denim blue jeans will shrink a bit each time you dry them. Clothes dryers can also give clothes quite a beating if you dry them too long and too often. Air-drying your clothes is the best way to make them last longer. Using a fabric softener in the rinse cycle will help keep your clothes from getting stiff. You can dry your clothes outside or on an indoor folding rack that stores easily when you are through.

Tip #4 - Sew loose seams or small tears as soon as they occur.
If you have a small opening it can easily tear into a larger one that is either harder or impossible to fix. Replace lost buttons immediately or the item may end up in the bottom of the mending pile never to be seen again. It only takes a few minutes to sew up a loose seam or button and thread costs next to nothing.

Tip #5 – store it properly for the next season
When it’s time to put your clothes away for the season be sure to clean, iron, and fold them first. Always store your clothing in plastic tote boxes along with some cedar blocks to protect them from moisture and insects. Label the tote so you can easily locate your clothes when you need them. When the season comes back around your clothes will be clean and ready to wear.

How to style the Pob!

1. Use a texturizing shampoo and conditioner in the shower.

2. Towel dry your hair and work in a small amount of anti-frizz balm and a dollop of volumizing mousse through your hair.

3. Using your hair dryer and a round brush, smooth hair towards your face, boosting more movement in your hair.

4. To style a cowlick, try blasting the heat on the unruly piece of hair first in one direction, then in the next direction, and after repeating a few times, the hair should sit the way you want.

5. Once dry, use a bit of pomade or wax to spike up the shorter pieces and seperate longer strands.

6. Use a small amount and rub between your hands to get the product soft, warm and pliable.

7. When your hair is styled, finish off with a touch of glossy shine serum and a spritz of finishing spray. Throughout the day you can touch and fluff up your hair.

8. Shorter styles usually require a bit more maintenance than longer ones. You'll need to get regular trims every 4-6 weeks, and keep that color fresh as there is nowhere for roots to hide.

9. You won't need to wash your hair everyday as choppier styles usually hold up well with slightly dirty hair.
