--2012 is the year of the color orange. Or to be more precise, it's the year of "Tangerine Tango," which the Pantone Color Institute dubbed the dominant hue of 2012. The institute, a research arm of color-matching firm Pantone Inc., forecasts the most popular color each year by pondering factors such as news events, pop culture, designer shows and consumer trends, according to the Associated Press. This year, apparently, Tangerine Tango will reign. "There's the element of encouragement with orange, it's building on the ideas of courage and action, that we want to move on to better things," Leatrice Eiseman, the institute's executive director, told the AP. "I think it would be a disservice to go with a relaxed, soothing color now. " --Glamour magazine is testing a barcode-enabled shopping wall to empower smartphone owners to buy beauty products on the go. The wall, set up in Manhattan's Meatpacking District, features photos of items from Unilever, Johnson & Johnson, Clearasil and other brands.

Country music superstar Shania Twain is on the front of issues in regions where she is particularly popular--the Midwest, the South and Canada.

But guests at Glamour magazine's "Don'ts Party" at the outre Norm's Diner in West Hollywood were asked to throw good taste to the wind and dress to unimpress. It didn't seem that image-obsessed L.A. was up to the task as svelte teams of low-slung leather-pants-clad hipsters began to arrive. "Everyone has become so stylish in L.A.

College-age females love women's magazines. They hate them, too. Popular women's magazines--from the teen-ager's Seventeen to Glamour, Cosmopolitan and Redbook--undermine women's confidence and self-esteem, and make them feel worse about their physical appearance, according to a new study. In particular, advertisements and photographs in magazines targeted to women ages 18-34 inspire feelings of inferiority, claims UCLA and Stanford social psychologist Debbie Then.
