Smash hit by Hayden. Body by milk. 

You don't have to be a hero to feel invincible. That's why I 

drink milk. The protein helps build muscle and some studies sussest 

teens who choose it tend to be leaner. Cheers to that.

Kill them with kindness. 



Still blasting away at blemishes? Time to call a truce. If you gently exfoliate, good 
things happen. Clogged pores open. Oxygen evicts acne-causing bacteria 
Medicated ingredients rush in to accelerate treatment. 

Clinique's new Acne Solutions" Clear Skin System makes it happen, fast. 

Just cleanse, exfoliate, moisturize. Gentle enough to use twice a day, every day, 

without drying. 

Within days, skin starts to look clearer. Resist future breakout. We come in peace.

hi from ann 




Hi! 




There is something completely irresistible about 
the idea of a "makeover/* Who doesn't want to transform herself 
with new clothes or makeup? Every year right about this time, I flop 
down in my hairstylist's chair and tell her I'm ready for a big change. 
(Thanks for not letting me go too wild, Liz!) It's just girly fun to 
experiment. This month weVegot makeover ideas that are quick 
(page 72), inexpensive (page 44) ( and even extreme (page 162). 
But my favorite makeover idea is good for your soul: It's Julie's story 
on page 80. After her mom spent this year battling breast cancer, 
Julie wanted her to feel pretty again. So celeb makeup artist Sonia 
Kashuk (a breast cancer survivor herself) gave them both a new 
look and a new outlook. That, to me, is a real makeover— one that 
changes you on the outside and inside. How do you want to make 
yourself over? Fill me in at ann a seventeen.com. 



PS-, cwea ow 'W Mmovw! 




I had so much fun trying out looks in the Seventeen Salon! Get your own makeover at seventeen.com/salon.

STUFF ON DUFF 

^m At first I wasn't thrilled to see 
Hilary Duff on the cover But 
Kx ™ after I read the article. I 
completely changed my mind about 
her. She seems so real, and she has 
the same boy and family problems that 
we all do. She handled her breakup 
with such confidence and dignity, 
and for thai. I truly respect her. I hope 
she reads this because I want to say 
Congrats and stay strong, Hilary! 
You're a great role model, 

-liz, 15, Cleveland, oh 

I'm pretty disappointed with your 
cover story about H ilary's "most 
devastating year." I'm well aware 
that it's difficult to have your parents 
go through a divorce — Pve gone 
through the same thing this year. But 
really, her "most devastating year" 
kind of makes me laugh. Didn't she 
break up with Joel Madden? Girls 
should hardly consider this such a 
tragedy. Try losing your childhood 
home, having your brother sent to 
Iraq, or losing someone you love in a 
car accident. We don't need spoiled 
celebs making a normal day for us 
seem like a train wreck. Let's try to 
be a little more realistic, shall we? 

-mcrcdith, 18. walpole, me 

HONEST APPROACH 

£ ^\ After reading the survey on 
ft jg virginity ["Are You Sure 

H You're Still a Virgin?"]. I was 
a little disappointed to read that 
anyone can choose her own 




definition of virginity. Isn't 
that a little misleading? I know I'd 
be completely ticked off if I were 
dating a guy who told me he was 
a virgin and I later found out he'd had 
oral and anal sex. Bottom line is that 
if he's had sexual contact, then I'm 
at risk for STDs. It's completely unfair, 
unhealthy, and irresponsible not to 
tell the whole truth to your partner 
about what you've done. If you think 
you're still a virgin, fine, but you'd 
better be clear with your partner about 
your definition of virginity.

ROUGH ROADS 

n Thanks for the article on car 
crashes and the importance 
of wearing a seat belt [*Are 
You a Dangerous Driver?"]. This past 
April, three of my friends and I were 
involved in a really bad car acckient on 
the way home from prom. Not all of 
us were wearing our seat belts, but 
luckily we were all okay* 

-molissa, 17 t marietta, ga 

INNER HAPPINESS 

I learned a lot from the Confidence 
Coach article [*Have Your Best Year 
Yetr|. Near the end of the school 
year, I felt unhappy a lot of the 
time and didn't want to hang out with 



friends because I was so overly self- 
conscious. I avoided doing activities I 
normally enjoyed because I didn't 
want to draw attention to myself. 
Every morning I had a war with the 
mirror. At the end of the year, I 
settled on wearing just sweatpants 
and T-shirts to school. I finally 
realized it was because I had no 
confidence in myself — despite the 
good things everyone else thought 
about me. Seeing this Confidence 
Coach article showed me that other 
girls must feel the same self-doubt. 
Thank you for putting in realistic and 
helpful tips that allowed me to see 
that I can have my best year ever!

what to tell him: 

A bright, fitted knit shirt will show off your 
body ... but it feels like a sweatshirt. Win-win! 

Cotton pants are a step up from sweats but 
still comfortable and roomy. 

Sneakers in an unexpected color look cool

A bold and bright T-shirt will gain you Instant

A jacket looks good if it's a little baggy but

• • I'm usually slow moving on Mondays 
after the weekend off, so I like to keep things 
simple— it's school and then babysitting* •• 

17 TIP: Going darker with your hair 
color can wash you out. Sweep a powder 
bronzer on cheeks, forehead, and chin — 
it's a 30-second way to add a little color.

I'll run into. But I don't want to look like I'm trying too hard! •• 

17 TIP: Get a pretty glow with a mineral foundation. It 
feels light like a powder but It really evens out your skin 
like a foundation — and never looks caked on. 



• •My new hair color makes my green eyes pop— I'd like to

If someone you love has breast cancer, a 

makeover can work wonders: It's not a cure, 

but it's bonding time that really heals you 

both. Check out our tips and learn how you 

can help fight this disease, by nicole pearl 



it was February 2007 when Julie, 18 t learned her 
mom, Mary, had breast cancer. "I was so 
upset, I went numb — I couldn't even cry/ Mary had 
to have one breast removed, and Julie watched 
chemotherapy take its toll on her mom: Mary became 
paler and she lost her hair Now, eight months later, Mary 
is cancer-free — so Julie thought a makeover would 
be die perfect way to celebrate. "I think she's beautiful 
no matter what/ Julie says. "Scars, bald, whatever/

what's up 



with my 

breasts? 



55 



We all think about the way "the girls" 

look— but here's how to know if you 

should worry (or not!), by elisa benson 

"My breasts are totally lopsided — 
one is an A and the other is a C! " 



HOfWAL 



-BRITTANY M4 
A DOC SAYS: Breasts don't always develop 
at the same rate. In feet, while they're 
still growing, it's more common for them to be asymmetrical 
than the same size! Your breasts will even out eventually; 
in the meantime, buy a padded bra and lake the padding 
out of one side. Don't worry about your guy's reaction — 
he'll be thinking, Wow f I can't believe how lucky I am! 



"I have a lot of hair 
on my nipples — like 

20 on each one!" 

-ANGELA, 17 

NOT A/OW^k A DOC SAYS: Almost everyone has 

a few hairs around her nipples, but 
most girls have 10 or fewer on each breast (the actual 
number is determined by heredity). Since you have more 
than the norm, see your doctor: It's possible that you 
have a hormone imbalance — which is totally treatable. 



"The dark part around my nipples 
is big. The diameter is the length 
of my index finger!" 

-WENDY',16 

|i/)0JLIjU A DOC SAYS: The ring of color around each 
of your nipples is called the areola. It can range 
from being large, dark, and wrinkled to being small, skin- 
colored, and smooth — and every possible variation in between. 
Genetics decides it, so yours might look like your mom's! 
And FYI : Those little bumps you see on your areolae? They're 
normal too; the bumps are just little glands that will come in 
handy later on when you're pregnant or breastfeeding — they 
secrete oil to help keep your nipples from getting chapped. 




"I've got a few lumps in my 

breasts, and I'm really worried 
that I might have cancer!" 

-KATILYN.20 

MORM&L A DOC SAYS: Don't worry— breast 
cancer is very rare in women under 
age 30. Fact: Most girls get lumps in their breasts 
occasionally, due to hormonal fluctuations or 
natural changes in breast tissue. Cysts (fluid-filled 
sacs) are common too, but they usually come 
and go naturally. That said, see your doc if a lump 
hurts, makes your skin pucker, or won't go away. 



i 



October is 
National 
Breast Cancer 
Awareness 
Month! 




"Stuff that looks like 
milk leaks out of 
my breasts, but I've 
never had a baby ! n 



HOT NOMA 1 - 



-5IMONEV 

A DOC SAYS: Nipple discharge can 
be a symptom of a serious health 
problem, such as thyroid disease, so you should see 
your doctor ASAP. But don't freak: There are lots 
of other (less scary) things that could be causing it — 
like hormonal surges, irritation from clothing, or a 
new medication you're taking (such as birth control).

tests you i 

need to take 

"Getting tested" seems scary, but if 

you're having sex now (or planning to) 

it's a crucial part of caring for 

your sexual health, by elisa benson 



r p 

T O Z 

L p c o 

"en 









the basic test 



PAP TEST 



why you need it: A Pap smear checks for potentially 
cancerous cells in your cervix. Docs say every girl 
needs one by the time she's 21, or three years after 
she starts having sex. (Your first gyno visit— without 
a Pap smear— should happen at age 13)* 
what to on poet: A Pap test is part of a pelvic exam, 
in which you'll sit with your feet in stirrups while the 
doc Inserts a tool (called a speculum) into your 
vagina. In just a few seconds, the doc swipes a few 
celts from your cervix, then sends them to a lab. 
if something's wrong: Lots of thingscan cause 

abnormal results (a virus called HPV is one), but to 
rule out cancer, your doctor will want to perform 
another exam to look at your cervix more closely 




if you didn't use condoms 



GONORRHEA, CHLAMYDIA, HIV 

why you need it: These STDs don't always 
have symptoms— so if you've hooked up without 
a condom (including naked genital-to-genital 
contact, oral sex, or anal sex), don't know your 
guy's sexual history, or just want to be sure you're 
safe, ask your doc to run these tests. It's a good 
idea to get them once a year, just in case, 
what to expect: Your doc will collect a cell sample 
during a pelvic exam or ask you to pee in a cup; 
results will usually be available in 24 to 48 hours. 
HIV is generally diagnosed by a blood test but 
some facilities offer an on-the-spot saliva test— it 
costs more, but you'll have results In about an hour 
if something's wrong: Mods can cure gonorrhea 
and chlamydia. HIV can be treated but not cured 



if you see symptoms . 



GENITAL WARTS, HERPES 

why you need it: Doctors usually check for these 
STDs only when you report warning signs (like 
sores or swelling) or if you hooked up with someone 
who might be infected. That's because these STDs 
are so tricky to pinpoint: Both genital warts 
and herpes are hard to detect between outbreaks. 
Always be up-front with your doc about your 
sexual history so you get the tests you need, 
what to expect: A visual exam. The doc 
might also do a blood test or a swab 
of the area if the sore is visible, and test 
results aren't always conclusive. 
if something's wrong: Genital warts may go 
away on their own t or you can take medication. 
Herpes outbreaks can be controlled with meds.

THE LOVE 
DOC SAYS: 



•• When a guy is insecure about fitting in, you may see two different 
versions of him: the guy trying to impress his buddies and the guy trying to 
impress you. If he acts like a jerk to you around his friends, don't confront him 
on the spot. Wait until you're alone instead and tell him exactly how specific

GET BETTER GRAPES 



P(9. drag your butt to class! 

In a big lecture hall, it feels like no one notices if you skip. But 
you'll have an easier time remembering the material If you 
go to class. You'll hear the prof tell vivid anecdotes, which will 
help you recall boring facts and stats come test time, 

DON'T: leave immediately after. 

Stick around long enough to jot down any questions or 
assignments in your notes— it will prevent any "I totally forgot!" 
moments, since most classes meet only a few times a week. 

DO: buddy up with your prof. 

Two words: of fice hours* You can get a one-on-one tutorial 
with your prof and clear up questions you couldn't ask in front 
of 150 classmates. It's also a great way to show how hard you 
work— especially if your grades aren't at the top of the class, 

bON'T; change your study habits. 

Even though your environment is different, your study style 
doesn't have to be! Need music? Use noise-canceling earphones 
when your roomie is home. Prefer silence? Cozy up in a 
private carrel at the library. If it works for you. stick with It! 

Z>0: skim your readings. 

In college, midterms, papers, and finals rule. Spend 
most of your time on these big assignments instead of 
obsessing over every word in your textbooks. 

W/VT: ignore the web* 

Many colleges have online portals where 
you're supposed to view discussion boards 
or download readings— and, FYI, professors 
can sometimes track how often you tog on!

not to post the evidence online — 
if you were doing anything illegal,

Before Tiffany, now 18, s.ept with her guy, f***^*** 1

know she was about to commit a crime. A sTQ U >Toveron.cabyrd 



One day during the 
summer of 2006. 1 was 
hanging out at a friend's 
house when I met this 
cute guy I hadn't seen 
before, He had wavy brown hair and 
sexy green eyes, and it turned out that 
he was a freshman at my high school 
in River Falls. Wisconsin- Even though 
he was 15 and I was then 17. we 
started talking and really hit it off* We 
even liked the same songs (one 
favorite was ■ She's Everything." by 
Brad Paisley), I saw him again a few 
weeks later, and we started dating, 

Soon we were officially boyfriend and 
girlfriend. I felt so close to him; I could 
tell him everything. When we decided 
to have sex. it felt like the right decision. 
(I made sure we used a condom, 
because I'd had boyfriends before and 
I'd already talked with my mom about 
sex- She warned me about STDs — and 
insisted that I take birth control pills.) 

Over the next five months, my 
boyfriend and I spent more and more 
time together, hanging out or 
playing video games. When my mom 
wasn't home, we'd make out and 
sometimes have sex. I was happy: 
I had a boyfriend who loved met 

PERSONAL QUESTIONS 

I was in class at school in January 

2007 when my teacher told me I had 

to go to the principal's office. When I 

got there, a police officer was waiting. 

As he led me into 

another room. I tried to 

think what I could've 

done wrong. When he 

asked, "Do you know 

what this is about?" 

I shook my head. Then 

he told me that 

someone had called 

the local Child 

Protective Services 

office and reported that my boyfriend 

and I might be having sex. (I never 

learned who ratted me out or why.) 

'Are you having sex?" he asked. I said, 

'Yes. Am 1 in trouble?" He said no and 

let me return to class. 

Later that day. my boyfriend called 
me at home and said he'd also been

When we 
decided to have 

Sex, it felt 
like the right 

decision. 



questioned. 

4 Why are we 

in trouble for 

something 

other people are doing too?" he 

wondered. 'The cop even said you 

could be charged with a crime!" 

By then I was terrified I ran to my 
mom and told her everything. She was 
so upset, she drove me to the police 
station to find out what was going on. 
A different police officer finally told 
me the facts: I had committed a crime 
by having sex with my boyfriend 
because he was under 'the age of 
consent* (which is 16 in my state), and 
investigators were looking into the 
matter to decide if it should go to the 
district attorney* If it did, the DA could 
charge me with sexual assault. I 
can't believe this. I thought — I'm not a 
criminal! I cried the whole way home. 

JUDGMENT DAY 

I didn't hear from the police for the 
next month or so. and neither did my 
boyfriend. Then one day. I got a 
summons from the DA saying that I 
was being charged with the sexual 
assault of a child — and that if 
convicted, I could get up to 40 years in 
prison* I totally freaked out! I Kept 
thinking. Oh my God. I'm going Xojaill 
My mom tried to stay calm. She 
started calling around to find a public 
defender who would 
represent me. 

A month later, in 
April, I appeared before 
the judge. It was so 
scery. He asked if I 
understood the charges, 
then told me I'd need to 
appear in court again for 
a few more hearings. (My 
boyfriend couldn't come t 
because the law prohibited me from 
seeing him,) Within days, the local 
paper ran an article about my court 
case. I was so embarrassed. I started 
bawling! For the rest of the school 
year, kids talked about me. I fell into a 
major depression; I didn't want to go to 
school- It was completely awful. 



According to ihe report, when

Three months 
after my hearing. 
I finally received my 
punishment: I was 
prohibited from 
communicating with my boyfriend at all 
until July 2008. If I do. I might go to 
jail. It was devastating news. 

I'm still really depressed about 
everything. I see my boyfriend at school, 
but we're not supposed to talk. I love 
him. and I know he still ioves me. It's 
hard being apart. I care about him more 
than ever — and hope that a year from 
now. he'll still be my boyfriend. ©

It's a new school year— and you 
can be a whole new you. Here's how! 

by holly eagleson 



BECOME MORE OUTGOING 



You might feel shy* but making new friends isn't as 
hard as It sounds. You just need to have a plan. 

Say hi first Everyone worries that she'll be snubbed 
if she makes the first move. That's why you should do 
it — so the other person doesn't think you're cold or aloof! 
Ask questions If you get tongue-tied around new 
girls, pay them a compliment, and then ask a question 
("I love your tip gloss! Who makes it?"). When you show 
interest, they'll think you're really nice and friendly! 
Practice Next time you're in the caf line or whatever, 
make conversation with whoever is near you (*Have you 
tried that?"). No pressure: It's just light small talk! 

id hot guys— until 01 
said I seem intimidating because I'm quiet. 
Now when I'm afraid to first, I know he 

may be as scared of me as J am of him! 

-TONYA, 22,&OCARA1 



PROVE YOUR SMARTS 





You're so fun that people mistake you for ditzy. 
But you can stop disguising your intelligence. 

Target whiz kids Sit next to classmates v-+>o get the 
best grades. When you guys are partnered for projects, 
people will subconsciously associate you with them. 
Revamp your space On your Facebook page P 
balance party pics with photos of family trips, amazing 
artwork, or places you'd like to travel* That way, it won't 
seem like going out is your only priority. 
Keep it short Bubbly chatter might make you seem 
like an airhead, so speak slowly and choose your words 
carefully. You'll make a bigger impact by saying less. 



I was known as a ditz, but freshman year 
I joined the squad. As I learned about 

world issues, I shared them with friends, 
so they saw me as and fun,

COME ACROSS AS MATURE 



You're ready for more responsibility, but others see 
you as a little kid. Time to show your sophistication! 

Dress for success If sweet or sloppy describes 
your look, trade up. By dressing more grown-up. 
you'll match your style to your true self. 
Speak v^ell Urn. wanna seem. like, you 
know, older? Cut filler words and swap yep for 
yes to sound more adult instantly. 
Get it straight Slouching makes you seem 
unsure of yourself. So stand tall (pretend there 
is a string on the crown of your head tugging 
upward), and you'll command respect.

Dear Nerd, 

That churning feeling 
chat keeps you up at night 
is not food poisoning, it's 
ambition. Ambition is fine, 
but take your time. Enjoy 
where you are now. You know 
how you audition for the 
school musical every year, 
but never get a big part? 
Take that as a hint that 
musicals aren't your thing- 
Write your own shows to be 
in. Be patient. Everything 
will work out great. 

In the meantime, stop 
talking about other girls 
behind their backs. This is 
totally pointless-and also kind 
of poisonous. You're going to look 
back later and realize that the 
girls who seemed like they were so 
cool and had everything figured out 
were actually just as stressed out 
as you were. If you have to choose 
between being kind to someone or 
crushing them with one of your 
"hilarious" burns, be kind. You'll 
feel bgtt9r about it 20 years later, 
oh, and when it comes to guys, 
don't ever go out with one who 
won't let you say, "This is my 
boyfriend" in public. It means he 
thinks he can get someone 
better than you. And that is 
not an acceptable use of 
your time! 

Sincerely, Me 

PS: You might want to 
think about plucking 
your eyebrows. Just a 
little bit in the 
middle. And on the 
bottom- And the top.

In the midst of dealing with all the 

I drama on The Hills, Lauren 



somehow found the time 



to design a hot fashion collection. 



(Here, she gives Seventeen an 
exclusive peek at her new line— and the 
scoop on all those juicy rumors. 



google the words Lauren Conrad and rumors, and 163,000 
links pop up on your computer screen: "Lauren and Heidi 
fight!"; "Lauren's ex arrested again!"; "Lauren breaks 
Brody Jenner's finger!" The 21-year-old reality star has been 
defending herself against various haters and gossipmongers ever since her 
Laguna Beach days- (Remember the Kristin Cavallari/Stephen Colletti 
drama?) Maybe that's why we love her so much: For the past three years, 
we've watched her deal with the same kinds of friend and guy problems 
we alt have — and become more confident and comfortable with herself in 
the process* Now Lauren has proven that good girls really can finish first, 
by parlaying her reality-TV fame into a real-life fashion career C^

Here, exclusively in Seventeen, she models a few 
of her cute new designs (they're available at 
shoplaurenconrad.com) — and shares some of the hardest 
lessons she has learned about love and friendship. 
(BTW ( that broken-finger story? Totally false.) 

17: I've heard that a few of your friends from The 
Hills have disappointed you. Can you explain that? 
Lauren Conrad: Some people are willing to betray 
years of friendship just to get a little bit of the 
spotlight. They just want to become famous so badly, 
and that's never really made sense to me. I mean, it's 
fun to go out and do stuff in Hollywood, but if it was 
gone tomorrow, I really wouldn't be disappointed. 
But there are some people who just need to have it — 
and once they get a little bit of it. they'll do anything 
to keep it. When you're willing to give up a friendship 
for a little bit of fame, that's really disappointing. 



characters disappear And so we continue to follow 
their lives, and the producers keep letting Heidi and 
Spencer think there's some hope. 

17: Hope that you'll make up, you mean? 
LC; Mm-hmm. 

17: The show makes it look fike there isn't anything 
likable about Spencer. Is there? 
LC: No. 

17: Your ex Jason Wahler was also trouble. 
He's even been arrested a few times since you two 
broke up. Did you suspect he had such a big 
problem with drugs and alcohol when you were 
together and just choose to look the other way? 
LC: If I looked the other way. he would have been 
arrested a lot sooner 



17: You've hinted that Heidi is one of 
those fame-hungry people. Is It 
true that she crashed some of your 
shoots for The Hills? 
LC: [Nods,] 1 aciually came dangerously close 
to not doing season three, because I really 
didn't want to do the show with Heidi and 
|her boyfriend] Spencer. I'm not who they 
are, I don't stage my own publicity, I just 
kind of live my life and do my job, and I don't 
want to be grouped with them. So I basically 
had to make an agreement where I said, "I do 
not want to film with them. I would never 
normally hang out with them, so I don't want 
to be in any setting with them/ And [MTV] 
said, "Fine." But there were a few occasions 
where Heidi and Spencer showed up 
unexpectedly [at a club called Les Deux]. 



17: What did you do? 

LC: I took off my mike and walked downstairs where 
they're not allowed to film. I told the crew, "As soon as 
they leave. Til come back up." But then Heidi went 
and found me — with a camera behind her! And she 
tried to confront me! I just started yelling at her 1 
didn't really say anything bad — I mean, she knows all 
the things she did to me. Heidi kept saying, "Why are 
you so angry at me?" And I was like, "Don't act like 
you don't know! Don't act like you're innocent!" I 
think that's the only time [this season] when you see 
interaction between Heidi and me. 

17: So why are Heidi and Spencer still part of the show? 
LC: [MTV] says Heidi and Spencer were always a part 
of the show, and thev can't all of a sudden make main

willing to give 

up a friendship for 



HElSimfff: 



that's really 




f§ 



17: So you protected him. How did you 
get caught up in a relationship that was so 
bad for you? 

LC: In the beginning, he wasn't so bad. And by the 
time his behavior escalated [to alcohol abuse], I was 
just so in love that I didn't really care. I guess I decided 
that it was better to be with him and be unhappy than 
to be alone — which I was incorrect about. 

17: Why are girls so quick to nurture guy 
relationships, and then forget about their friends? 
LC: I guess it*s because you always consider your 
girlfriends lo be more forgiving. If you blow off 
a girlfriend for the night, you know you can call her the 
next day and say M I'm sorry" But if you blow off your 
boyfriend, there's a chance he'll break up with you! C^

17: Speaking of boyfriends, arc you In a 
relationship right now? 

LC: No, I don't have the time. I mean. 111 date— J like 
dating. But ever since Jason and I broke up, I've 
been experiencing a one-date curse: I've had only first 
dates with every guy I've gone out with. 

17: Do you have any first-date rules? 

LC: I don't kiss on the first date. My friends always 
make fun of me for that! 
But I will hold hands. 

17: Holding hands 

Is actually really 
Intimate! 

LC:Iknow! If a guy's 
not gonna hold your 
hand, do you really 
want to kiss him? 

17: Good point! And 

while we're on the 
subject of dates: 
Would you ever go 
out with an actor? 
LC: I always say that I 
don't want to. But pretty 
much everyone I date 

is an acton or on a reality 
show. It's like, half the 
people in L.A. are on 
reality shows! It's a veiy 
odd experience to go 
through: All of a sudden, 
people know your entire 
life — and then five 
minutes later, nobody 
cares. Other people 
on reality shows can 
relate to that. We kind 
of get each other 



17: You're still tight 

with people who knew 

you back in the day. 

Is there one high school 

friend who you're closest to? 

LC: No— there are a totl They all go to USC, so I hang 

out with them all the time. Friendship, to me. is about 

trust and loyalty You don't ever want to have to 

second-guess whether you can tell a friend something. 

Most of my really good friends just don't have 

any interest in the show. I like not having to talk

about it when I'm with them. It's nice to just get 
away I mean, I don't want be on TV forever. 
Designing clothes is what I really want to do. I want 
to be creating clothes after [my TV stardom) goes 
away. I'm trying to build a fashion career 

17: Glad you brought that up! It must be 

so coo/ to have your own label. Were you Into 

designer names back In high school? 

LC: Yeah. I even bought 
a fake Coach purse 
once, which I'm 
embarrassed about now. 
{ But it was mostly about 
Louis Vuitton and Marc 
Jacobs bags and Chanel 
sunglasses* Everyone 
wore Chanel glasses — 
that was the big thing! 
I remember when I 
got mine for my 16th 
birthday. That was, like, 
the highlight of my 
high school experience! 

17: it sounds like your 
parents were pretty 
generous. Were they? 
LC: No! They made me 
submit a clothing 
budget every year, to 
teach me how to manage 
money, I'd have to be 
like, "I need six pairs of 
jeans" ... all the way 
down to socks and 
underwear! They'd go 
through my budget, edit 
it down, and eventually 
OK a certain total, 
which they would put on 
a credit card. As soon as 
it was gone, I was done. 

17: No way! Did 

you know anyone 
else whose parents made them do that? 

LC: No, it was just mine. And my dad cut me off 
when I was like, 19. He said, "Now you're a self- 
feeder. " Which meant that I was going to have to feed 
myself. But actually it was liberating to be like, 
"I don't need my parents' money anymore," I like the 
fact that I support myself. Q

When it comes to romance, it's hard not to let your fantasies run away with you a little. 

But sometimes that's just when reality steps in and gives you a rude wake-up call. 

If things with a guy don't work out as you'd hoped, it hurts. So how do you bounce back 

from the disappointment? No worries! We've got your plan B. BY MELISSA DALY 



PLANA: 



Have magical night 
at big school dance 
with hot boyfriend. 




CRISIS: 



Boyfriend dumps you 

out of the blue—just 

before the dance! 




PLANE: 



Have okay time 

at event without ex; 

embrace freedom. 

Pretend that the romantic 
evening you'd pictured just got 
rain-checked — and replaced 
by a night out with friends, 
(That will take off some of the 
pressure.) Geta guy friend 
who always makes you laugh to 
be your "date"; once there, sit 
with your crew and try to have 
fun. If your ex is there with 
another girl, act like it doesn't 
bother you. (You can cry in 
private later) After the dance, 
get over the breakup by looking 
at your ex realistically. 
Remember the times he was a 
total doof? And how he flirted 
with other girls? Good! Once you 
see that he wasn't all that, 
you may even be glad he's gone. 



PLANA; 



Ask out longtime 

crush; get an 
enthusiastic "Yes!" 




CRISIS; 



Crush gives you 

a flat-out no— right 

to your face! 



PLANE: 



Scoop self-esteem 

off floor; tweak 
asking-out strategy. 

First off f feel proud of yourself 

for having had the confidence 

to ask him out to begin with. 
Listen, sometimes when you 
surprise a guy, you don't get the 
best results. We're not going 
to lie: He probably just isn't into 
you. But there are other guys 
who are. So set your sights on a 
eutie who has shown signs 
that he likes you back (he smiles 
at you a lot or goes out of his 
way to talk to you)- Then take 
the pressure off asking him out 
by making it a nondate. 
Invite him to something low- 
key (like a study session). That 
should get the ball rolling, and 
it won't feel so forced since 
you're not making it a big deal! 



PLANA: 



Enlist friend's help in 

landing hot guy 
you've been eyeing. 




CRISIS: 



Friend says hot guy 
is her new crush— and 
that she saw him first! 




PLANE: 



Determine who has 

better chance; be 

a good winner/loser. 

Step 1: Tell your friend that 
you like the guy too. Step 2 : 
Assure her that the last thing 
you want is for this to come 
between you. Step 3: Figure 
out who realty has dibs. Has he 
actually confessed that he likes 
you? If so t then you have the 
green light to go for it — as long 
as your friend agrees. (Don't 
ask her to help you snag him, 
though. That would be rubbing 
it in her face.) But if it turns out 
that your friend actually has a 
better shot, face the truth, 
wish her luck, and cross him 
off your list (at least for now). 
Comfort yourself with this 
thought: Guys come and go, but 
good friends are forever

He calls you names, farts in your face, or even just completely ignores you! Legendary author 
Judy Blumo explains why, with brothers, it can take a while to appreciate what you've got. 




y brother was four 
years old when I 
was born, and I'm 
not sure he ever 
got over it. Family 
lore has it he had 
such a temper that 
he held his breath until he turned blue* He kicked his 
kindergarten teacher in the stomach on the first day 
of school. In photos, he has a pained look on his face. 
So I tried to be perfect. I sang, I danced, I got good 
grades — whatever it took to please my parents. Only my 
eczema gave me away* 

My brother was quiet, and uncomfortable around 
people, like our mother. While I roller-skated and played 
with friends on the street, he spent his time in the 
basement workshop, inventing things. He lived inside 
his head. None of us understood him. 

Td heard whispers about his genius IQ, so when he 
told me to stand with one foot off the ground during 
thunderstorms so the lightning would have a way out if 
it hit me, I believed him. I hopped around the house on 
one foot and never used the toilet during a storm because 
he said the lightning could come up and strike me there. 

My friends thought I was lucky to have an older 
brother. They found him fascinating. I never told them 
we weren't the perfect family we pretended to be. 

I was starting eighth grade when my brother left for 
college, a nd for the next five years I lived as the only 
child in the house. I'd like to say I missed him. but the 
truth is. I was relieved. The tension in our house 
disappeared when my brother left. I sometimes felt 
guilty about that. 

The first time we visited him at college, I was only 14, 
but he set me up on a date with a red-cheeked freshman. 
The four of us went out with another couple. My brother 
and his date in the front seat, the rest of us squeezed into 
the back. I wore a sleeveless denim dress and Cuban 
heels and stuffed my bra with toilet paper, trying to look 



older. I wanted my brother to be proud of me. It never 
occurred to me that he probably wanted the same. After 
the movies, my brother and his date and the other couple 
made out. My date and I just sat there, staring straight 
ahead, wishing we could go home. My brother has no 
memory of this night. I remember it in great detail. Like 
most siblings, we remember things differently* 

I didn't see a lot of my brother after that. He dropped 
out of college, joined the Air Force, married early, and 
was sent overseas. He and my sister-in-law arrived back 
in the States on a sunny Sunday in July, just weeks 
before my wedding. On the way home from the airport, 
they announced they were expecting a baby. My father 
let out a whoop of joy — then the car swerved. My mother 
screamed. Two hours later my father died of a heart 
attack and our lives were changed forever. 

You'd think this tragedy would have brought us 
closer together, but it didn't. We never talked about it. 
Neither did our mother. Each of us mourned alone. 
There was no comfort in being together. 

For the next 25 years my brother and I lived in 
different worlds. Oh, sure, we saw each other once or 
twice a year, and at those family gatherings our kids 
played together. But that was it. It wasn't until after our 
mother's death, after our kids were grown, after we'd 
both divorced and remarried, that we discovered we 
have some things in common. We began to spend time 
together in Key West, a city we both love, although we 
never knew it. When we're together we reminisce. There 
are some things we can't talk about, like politics. I look 
at my brother differently now. I care about him. 

Maybe it's true that as you grow older you mellow. 
Maybe the things that once made you so angry don't 
seem as important. 

You don't get to choose your siblings. You're lucky 
when you grow up close, when you're there for each 
other. Some brothers and sisters never reconnect. I feel 
lucky that we did. After all, my brother and I share a 
history. We're family. <J)

Everywhere we look, we're bombarded with images of celebrities 

and models with newly perfect-looking bodies. Now more girls think 

they should get nipped and tucked too. by veronica byrd 

At some point many 
of us have wished we could change 
something about our bodies. But now a 
record number ol girls aren't just wishing — 
they're actually going under the knife. Last year. 
94,000 teen girls had cosmetic surgery, according to the 
American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Girls are getting 
t breast implants, nose jobs, liposuction— sometimes as birthday 
or graduation gifts. What's behind the trend? Reality-TV shows 
like Dr. 90210, for one thing — they make surgery seem so simple. 
Tabloids are feeding the frenzy too, by showing us images of young 
post-op stars week after week* It's starting to seem more normal to 
have surgery than to be happy with what youVe got. When you see 
that so many young, pretty celebs are getting surgery, you can't help 
■ thinking, Would / look better with 36C breasts or a tinier nose? 
It can make you feel like there's just one definition of sexy, and it • 
m can only be bought at the doctor's office. It doesn't make you a m 
bad person if youVe had — or want to have — plastic surgery. 
^ We alt want to look our best. The problem is when it 

\ becomes a reflex instead of a carefully considered 
choice. Changing your body to please yourself 
\is one thing; changing it to please others ^W 
is another. Have you been thinking w 
^^ about getting work done? Read 

this first. !=£>

I was always the 
girl who had a flat 
chest. I watched 
as my friends' breasts grew, but 
mine stayed flat — an A cup. 
Whenever I looked into the 
mirror, they were the only thing 
about my body that I didn't 
like. (I have wide hips, so I felt 
disproportionate; dresses and 
tops never fit right.) I started 
researching breast implants on the Internet and 
saving money from my part-time job to pay for the 
surgery. At first my boyfriend was against the 
idea— since he was happy with me the way I was, 
he didn't get why I wanted to change my body. I 
told him that I just needed to feel more confident 
and attractive. I found a board- certified doctor, 
who asked me a lot of questions about why 
I wanted bigger breasts. He also told me the 
risks (like scarring and infection). 
The operation went fine: I'm now 
a C cup. But there's a downside I didn't 
expect. Yeah, guys pay more attention 
to me, which I thought I'd like. But 
now it seems like they're 
interested in me only because of 
my boobs! When they look at me, 
I wonder if they're just thinking 
about sex— and that feels 
degrading. Sometimes 
I'm not sure if the 
surgery was worth it.

me [if I've had 
breast implants]. 

I feel like I should let the 

live on. I'm all for 

plastic surgery. When I'm 

older, I'm getting 
sucked, 

tucked, and cut off.

THREE REASONS TO 
HOLD OFF ON SURGERY 

1 . you're still growing Girls' f 

bodies can continue to change into their 
early twenties. A body part that appears too 
large or too small now can become more 
proportionate over time. Give your body a 
chance to develop fully before calling a doc. 

2. you haven't researched 
the procedure and risks surgery 

is dangerous whether it's elective or not. 
So do your homework: Talk to girls who've 
gotten the procedure you're considering, 
ask yourself some hard questions (like, Can I 
handle it if the results don't look the way I thought 
they would?), and choose a doc who's certified by 
The American Board of Plastic Surgery. 

3. you're doing it for the wrong 

reasons Think changing your looks will 
instantly make you more popular and happy? 
It won't. So talk with your doctor or therapist 
about why you want surgery. She'll help you 
figure out if your expectations are realistic. 




WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT PLASTIC SURGERY 



FS A PERSONAL CHOICE! «| have a 

good friend who got a nose job, and it made 
ler so much happier. My motto is: Do what 
I makes you happy. If you have the money, 
why not spend a little to improve your looks? 
Besides, what a girl does with her own body is her 
choice. Who am I to judge?" -EMILY. 16 f BRANSON, MO 




DONT DO IT! "I don't think girls should 
have plastic surgery unless it's necessary, 
like if they have a medical or life- 
threatening emergency. Most people get 
surgery because they feel insecure. There are 
different kinds of physical beauty — and we're not 
all supposed to look alike!" -SOU. 17. POQUOSON. VA

personal convo 

"I was riding on the elevator in our 
hotel while I was on vacation with my 
family. This guy got on and started 
talking to me. but he wasn't facing 
me. He asked how I was doing, and I 
said. 'Fine/ Then he asked what I was 
up to. and I replied. 'Nothing." Then 
he turned toward me and rudely said. 
'Do you mind? I'm on the phone!* I 
blushed bright red and couldn't wait 
to get out of that elevator!" 

fashion statement 

"It was 'What the Heck Are You 
Wearing Day' at school and I was so 
pumped up about wearing a crazy 
outfit. I wore super-skinny gray jeans 
with red shorts over them, an ugly 
green shirt with a loose tank top over 
it, and over fbaf, another spaghetti- 
strap tank I also had on a big gold 
belt, dozens of hair clips, and two 
headbands, I walked Into school and 
saw that I was the only one dressed 
up — I had gotten the day wrong! All 
day, everyone was literally asking me 
4 What the heck are you wearing?'" 

slide of pepperoni 

"I was in line at the cafeteria buying a 
slice of pizza when I heard someone 
call out my friend's name. It seemed 
urgent, so I paid for my food and 
started running back to where my 
friend was sitting to tell her someone 
was looking for her. In my rush to find 
her. I didn't see the backpack lying in 
the middle of the floor ... I tripped 
over it and fell to the ground! Not only 
did I land on my piz2a, but my crush 
was right there laughing at me! - 

mud bath 

"I was on a date with a really hot guy, 
and we were walkir>g through the 
woods to get to this romantic spot 
where there's a bench and green 
grass. We were almost there when he 
stopped me and went in for a kiss. 
I was so shocked that I had to move 
my foot for better balance — and I put 
it down right in a mud puddle. My foot 
slipped out from urtder me, and I fell 
down into the dirty water! Let's just 
say all the romance was gone once I 
was covered in muck/ 



check, please 

"My crush and I went out to eat 
with our families — we're all really 
close. I was wearing a short skirt 
and kept getting up to get more food 
at the buffet just so he would notice 
me. One time when I got up. I thought 
I saw him checking out my butt. I 
wanted to make sure I was walking 
perfectly, but while concentrating. I 
walked right into a waiter who was 
carrying about 10 drinks. My clothes 
and hair were soakedl Everyone at 
the table — including my crush — was 
cracking up! It was awful." 



THE REAL FEEL 

££ One day my 

wW friends and I 
were walking through 
a department store 
at the mall. I spotted a 
male mannequin 
wearing this shirt that 
looked so soft-looking, 
I just had to touch it! 
As I started feeling it, 
the mannequin moved! 
Turns out it was a 
real live man who was 
just standing really still. 
He gave me a weird 
look, and I quickly 
apologized and ran 

away as fast as I OO 
could. Oops! Z? Z* 

dramatic scene 

"There was this guy I really liked, but 
I didn't Know how to make him notice 
me. When my friends asked me to 
perform a dance routine with them at 
the school talent show, I decided this 
would be my chance. But when I got 
onstage, I saw him and everyone else 
in the crowd and got really nervous. 
I was concentrating so hard on not 
messing up that I didn't notice how 
close I was to the edge. During the 
part of the dance where we were 
all supposed to slide to one side. 



I 



I flew right off the stage! The whole 
audience gasped. I guess I got his 
attention after all T 

love hurts 

•| was sitting with my best friend at 
lunch one day. and she was really 
bummed because she had just broken 
up with her boyfriend. I was trying to 
cheer her up. so I told her. 'I love you 
this much/ As 1 said it. I spread my 
arms wide to show her just how 
much — and ended up smacking 
someone on the butt. I turned around 
and sawrt was the principal! He gave 
me an evil look. I wanted to die, but at 
least it got my friend laughing again!"

"I was visiting my grandparents In the 
country and went into town to buy 
some groceries for them* Thinking 
there might be some hot guys around. 
1 put on my favorite stilettos. When 
I got to the store, I noticed this cute 
marine smiling at me. 1 smiled back, 
gave a little wink, and continued on. 
Then alt of a sudden, my heel got 



caught in a crack in the pavement and

would know not to wear those heels!'"

"It was my first day of tennis class 
and I had noticed that there were a 
few really cute guys watching from 
the bleachers. While I was playing in 
my first match. I caught one of them 
watching me, so I tried to show off my 
skills and win the point. But as I was 
running toward the ball. I tripped and 
fell flat on my butt! I lay on the court 
for a few seconds, humiliated, 
hoping the guys hadn't seen. Of 
course when I sat up. they were 
laughing hysterically!" 

face -off 

"Every year my school has a huge 
football game against our rival. 
Everyone shows up. I was hanging out 
in the student section when I noticed 
some girls had the players' jersey 




numbers painted on 
their faces, (wanted 
to draw my friend's 
number on my face. 
so I ran to the 
bathroom and put it on with eyeliner. 
Later on that night after the game, my 
friend asked me why I had the letter p 
written on my face. I meant to draw the 
number 9 but had accidentally 
reversed it in the mirror! It was like 
that the whole game. Everyone had to 
think I was a moron t" G)
