Reese Witherspoon: From Brunette To Blond And All's Forgiven?
Since her unfortunate ride in the back of a cop car, Reese Witherspoon has been noticeably more accommodating to the paparazzi. As such we've been inundated with photos of her every move. "Reese smiles at soccer practice", "Reese and family at the airport", and now "Reese as a blond!" I'm not saying it's anything more than coincidence, but…okay, yes I am.

Progress: Loblaw Inc. Signs Bangladesh Fire And Safety Deal
Since we first reported on the disastrous building collapse in Bangladesh, the death toll has risen to over 1,100 people. Somehow the word 'disaster' no longer seems appropriate to describe the fallen complex that included a garment factory where Canada's Loblaw Inc. was among retailers employing the now-deceased. Something bigger - more grave - is warranted, because this is a disaster of epic proportions.

What You Need To Know About Sunscreen
There are many dark spot solutions hitting the market this spring. Whether Vitamin-C packed or Goji berry-infused, the treatments claim to help lessen dark pigment, known as hyper pigmentation, that comes courtesy of sun damage. And while many of these products can help to dull the discolouration, I think it makes a lot more sense to take a proactive approach to the problem with proper sun protection.
First off, many women believe that the SPF built into their moisturizer, BB Cream or foundation is sufficient as a daily sunscreen—not so. You should be wearing a stand alone sunscreen every day, in addition to any SPF built into your skincare.

Abercrombie & Fitch CEO Accused Of Discrimination, Again
It's no secret that Abercrombie & Fitch favours young fit models in their ad campaigns, but according to Robin Lewis, author of The New Rules of Retail, the plus-sized snub is more intentional than we may think. In her new book, Lewis alleges that CEO Mike Jeffries "doesn't want larger people shopping in his store[s], he wants thin and beautiful people."

Lululemon Athletica Facing Lawsuit
A few weeks ago Lululemon was forced to recall 17% of their black Luon pants because the fabric was too sheer. At the time, the fiasco was predicted to eventually cost the company close to 40 million dollars, but now - thanks to new information of a hefty bonus plan put into place within days of the recall - things just got a lot more costly.

The Top 3 Punk Trends From The 2013 MET Gala
Despite the punk theme at last night's MET Gala, many stars bypassed the invite and wore whatever they pleased. Luckily, there were a few stars who brought their inner punk rocker out to play.
Here's a recap of our favourite ways to wear the look:
#1 SLICK HAIR AND DARK EYES
If you're pressed for a punk aesthetic, beauty is an easy way to get the look. Stars like Lena Dunham, Karolina Kurkova, and Kerry Washington slicked back their hair and heavily contoured the eyes with wet black shadows for a nearly gothic finish. Anne Hathaway went sleek with her hair as well, and shocked the crowd with a bleach blonde shade—a big change from her usually dark 'do. Nicole Richie switched up her colour as well, wearing a chalky pastel blue that looked muddy and thick. Those rebellious style change-ups are what punk is all about!

Keira Knightley Marries In A Short - Possibly Recycled - Dress
Keira Knightley wed her beau James Righton in France this weekend. It was believed that the nuptials were imminent after Righton and several family members arrived in France, so when the couple arrived at the town hall in Mazan, no one was surprised.
There were, however, a few unexpected elements surrounding the event. As far as celebrity weddings go, this one was refreshingly low-key. The ceremony was reportedly small, including under a dozen people, and the reception took place at Keira's rural farm house where she was seen stringing paper balls from the trees.
