Megalyn can currently be seen playing the transformed Isabelle Tyler on the fourth season of "The 4400" on the USA network (Sunday night at 9:00pm). Although she's acted in other TV shows such as "24", "The Steve Harvey Show", "That '70s Show", "What I like about you" and "Supernatural", to name a few, Megalyn is best know for her breakout role on the hit show "The 4400". Even though she was added to the third season, her character quickly became a fan favorite.

Some of Megalyn's previous projects include a short documentary film by Tao Ruspoli called "Going". This film features images about travel, motion, memories, that are suppose to overwhelm your senses and provide inspiration. She also had a song, "So Much" featured on MTV's TV show "Spyder Games" in 2001.

Last night (7/30) she was on "The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson" discussing her character on the show, her experience of growing up and living on a Navajo Indian Reservation in Arizona and how she spends her down time while living in L.A.

Denim Mini Skirts: The Best Part of Summer

Denim mini skirts never truly go out of style. They are great for all seasons, just remember to wear leggings or tights for fall and winter. For summer, I love to pair my minis with a cool T-shirt and flats (or flip flops) for a great day look. It's even cute with a fitted cardigan and ballet flats.

If you're going to wear a mini for evening, try not to be so over exposed by maybe wearing a fitted T-shirt or a flowy off-the-shoulder top to keep it sexy without looking too sexy.
