Karen O’s right-hand man knows a thing or two about bold looks: He did all the makeup magic for Hedwig and the Angry Inch (that man/woman looked hot).
Suffice it to say this Potter’s a real wizard.

In today’s 5 Questions with SuChin Pak, nutritionist Kimberly Snyder answers our burning foodie FAQs, from her feelings on juice cleanses to the items she would add and subtract from everyone’s diets.
We took advantage of Snyder’s know-how (her latest book, The Beauty Detox Foods, came out yesterday) and snagged a hair-thickening Caesar salad recipe and a roundup of foods that combat cellulite, too.
It’s evident the health guru practices what she preaches: She’s flawless in person.
We’re lucky she sandwiched us in.
The Beauty Detox Foods is available at amazon.com, $11. For more about Snyder, go to kimberlysnyder.net and check out her five beauty must-haves.

And then look to the sky.

We like to fashion our lives after the characters on Downton Abbey (minus getting jilted at the altar, going to war, death during childbirth, and that weird Mr. Pamuk scenario).
The first step: baking a rhubarb fool (a dessert resembling a trifle) like a Brit. In today’s video, chef Karen Hatfield (from L.A.’s The Sycamore Kitchen and Hatfield’s) shows us how to make a version with ginger sabayon.
Not only is it bloody simple, you can substitute any kind of berry if rhubarb isn’t your thing.
Just send Daisy to pick some up.

So we can’t get enough of Lindsay Segal, co-owner of Luxury Garage Sale (a Chicago-based upscale consignment service) and avid collector of robots, vintage plates, porcelain animals, and costume jewelry. In today’s Inside Story, she gives us a peek into her light-filled West Loop apartment.
It’s no surprise she’s accrued so many treasures — combing antique stores and estate sales is literally her job. The fact that most of her jewelry costs less than $100 is a testament to her keen eye for design.
This Segal’s a rare bird.
