  • World's Smallest Car Unveiled

    For those who think a Smart car is the most diminutive vehicle on the road, "Top Gear" host Jeremy Clarkson has got a surprise up his sleeve: the P45.

    The vehicle was designed by Clarkson - who began hosting the U.K. television show about cars in 1988 - as a response to the Peel P50, the three-wheeled microcar made in Britain in the 1960s.

    On the debut of "Top Gear's" 19th season of the show, which is the most popular factual series in the world, Clarkson unveils his invention- though it doesn't look all that comfortable while he's encased in it. And it makes him look like a Lego man or R2D2.

    The always snarky host then takes the four-wheeled wonder along the streets of Guildford, England, deftly avoiding a traffic jam in his narrow new ride. But on the highway, he hits a snag.

    "I'm just staggered that ford GM, Toyota, all of the automotive giants haven't thought to make a car like this yet," he

    Does expensive mascara make your lashes look significantly longer or fuller?

    Mascara ads promise long, alluring, sensuous eyelashes. But can one brand of mascara really make your lashes look that different?

    When we finish with all four applications and photos we compare the finished result. Adrina, our makeup artist, liked the Chanel best; although we all saw a bit of clumping, she felt it went on the smoothest.

    Chase liked the Benefit and the Chanel. She said it felt best on her

  • Rihanna Shows Tattoos in Photo Shoot

    You already knew she was a "Bad Girl," but now, Rihanna's showing off even more of her dark side in new photo outtakes from her recent Rolling Stone interview.

    The 24-year-old singer, seen smoking and showing off her tattoos in the shots, also opens up about Chris Brown in the interview.

    Rihanna said she decided it was more important to be happy than to do what the public wanted when it came to getting back together with her ex-boyfriend Chris Brown.

    "I wasn't going to let anybody's opinion get in the way of that [her happiness]," she said. "Even if it's a mistake, it's my mistake. After being tormented for so many years, being angry and dark, I'd rather just live my truth and take the backlash. I can handle it."
