Before you dismiss today’s post as another designer collaboration, let me say two words: Joseph Altuzarra.
Target has announced their latest designer pairing and we’re willing to wager it’ll reinvigorate your lust for affordable ready-to-wear fast-fashion. Mr. CFDA Vogue Fashion Fund-winner, Altuzarra is poised to present a line of lingerie, apparel, shoes and accessories, set to hit store shelves on Sept. 14.
The French/American designer, who dresses a bevy of Hollywood’s A-list beauties like Cate Blanchett and Jennifer Lawrence, is well known for feminine designs that still manage to exude sex appeal—a combo we’re pining to see duplicated for at a more affordable price tag than his haute couture. The collection will feature 50 items with a price cap of $89.99. If the sketch published in WWD was any indication, this is one line worth marking your calendars for.
By now you’ve certainly busted out your skirts and shorts, but there’s a new less leg-baring bottom in town that’s quickly becoming a spring style staple: Spring pants.
From slouchy trousers to flowy wide-bottomed pants, printed or plain, the season’s best separate comes in a vast variety of cuts and styles perfect for every body type and every occasion. Pair a skinny legged floral print with a button up and a blazer for a great office to cocktail hour combo, or dress up a casual harem style pant with heels and a well-cut crop for a weekend day to night look—pants are the style staple for spring. Here are a few perfect pant outfits to aspire to:read more
Cannes Film Festival’s red-carpet is well-known for offering up the best star-gazing this side of awards season, and this year is no different. From A-list to D-list, reality stars to up-n-comers, celebrities are tricking themselves out in their finest frocks to celebrate film, fame and the entertainment industry as a whole. Naturally, we thought a bit of eye-candy was in order, so here we go, and Happy Friday!
Nicole Kidman rarely disappoints on the red carpet and despite less-than-favorable reviews of her long-awaited biopic Grace of Monaco, she’s turned in some seriously style savvy photo ops.
The Women in Film with Calvin Klein even was chock full of fascinating and tres fashionable favorites like Lupita Nyong’o, Naomi Watts and Rooney Mara.
Blake Lively made all the style blogs at the Cannes red-carpet premiere of Mr. Turner looking every-inch the movie star she is.
Cate Blanchett’s Chopard Event appearance showed the actress looking her ethereal best in a grey metallic Valentino gown.
And it just wouldn’t be right to not circle back to the Grace of Monaco red carpet to celebrate the stunner, Zoe Saldana whose Victoria Beckham white chain dress was a perfect pick for the sun and sand of the seaside city.
If you’ve been anywhere near a beauty blog you’ll know by now that an orange painted pout is the thing for spring. Running rampant on S/S 14 runways like Rag & Bone, DKNY and Prabal Gurung, and lit across the kissers of such noted celebs as Jessica Chastain, Cate Blanchett and Lupita Nyong’o — orange lipstick is all the rage. So here’s a little how-to to choosing which citrus hue is right for you.read more
Pair the season’s traditionally stark palette with the impending winter grey gloom and you’ll see the need for this latest makeup trend — coordinating your lip color with your cheek hue.
Makeup artist Jeanine Lobell, painted our girl-crush Cate Blanchett with just such a look for the New York Film Festival and the look was equal parts fresh, fun and utterly gorgeous. “It’s all about creating dimension,” Lobell said of achieving the effect. “I only used a few products; it’s about how you apply them.” Here’s how to get Blanchett’s glowy look yourself.
1. Apply an illuminating primer under a light application of our favorite foundation. The operative word is “light” here… it’s hard to glow if your skin is covered in a full-paint job.
2. Keep your lips and cheek color coordinated by only using only cool colors, and then set your cheek base by using a cream blush.
3. Set the look wiht a light dusting of powder and then dust on a matching powder blush.
4. Line your lips with a darker hue, and then fill in the rest of your pout to create additional dimension. Voila — You’ve perfected fall’s prettiest red-carpet make-up, just like that!read more
