Gray hair may be a thing of the past, thanks to a new pill L’Oreal is set to debut in 2015. The drawback? You have to pop one every day, starting 10 years before you spot your first silver strand, MSNBC reports. In addition, the pill must be taken for life to remain effective. Tell us, is maintaining your color worth the commitment? Or would you rather work a silver style? Let us know in the comments!

Who designed your perfume bottle? Award-winning packaging designer Marc Rosen wants you to know. “Every woman knows who designed her dress, her handbag, or her shoes, so it is really rather odd that the creators of perfumes and of perfume bottles so often remain anonymous,” he wrote in his new book Glamour Icons: Perfume Bottle Design, out this week. His new tome aims to change that idea, and educate the vast audience of fragrance lovers through his career-making accomplishments creating for Revlon, Elizabeth Arden, Karl Lagerfeld, Fendi, and more. “I call perfume bottles ‘Glamour Icons’ because these fascinating small vessels have the power to transport us to a more beautiful and desirable world,” he wrote of the title. “It is a tall order for such a small package.” Click through the gallery for a preview of the book, on sale now for $85 at Amazon.com.
Sarah Burton produced another fantasy collection for Alexander McQueen’s spring 2012 runway show. The creative director and McQueen protégé released pieces covered in voluminous ruffles of cascading chiffon and lace, some cinched with corset belts to create an ultra-slim waistline. Cream, gold, lavender, silvery gray, and coral made up the palette, and lace, sheer panels, and underwire details added a lingerie touch. Towering curved wedges with straps snaking up the leg glided down the runway in gold and white. And that’s not all—see our favorite looks from the collection in the gallery.

Oscar de la Renta stopped by Martha Stewart’s studio this week, where he shared some shopping advice for brides to be. His number one tip?
