Julianne Moore, Uzo Aduba, Viola Davis, Patricia Arquette — we’re clear on the handful of last night’s SAG Award winners. What we’re unclear on is who “won” the red-carpet. Style stars in dazzling get-ups were in abundance last night, from Emma Stone’s stunning Dior tux redux to Lupita Nyong’o's flowing stripes meets floral Elie Saab. Since you’re likely as hard-pressed to pick favorites as we are, we thought we’d do our own photo red carpet 2.0 right here and then let you choose. So let us know… who do you think nailed the “style-star” look at last nights award season ceremony?read more
Summertime is just around the bend (a.k.a. holiday weekend) which brings to mind that one little beauty to-do we’d forgotten about: lightening your locks. Nothing says beachside beauty better than sun kissed strands, so let’s review the how-tos of black, brown, reds and blondes and soothe the angst typically associated with hair coloring (and the remorse when it goes awry.)
Ladies with black hair should shy away from highlights that are too drastically different than their natural hue. A few strategically placed dark brown strands will provide the necessary sun-kissed appeal and brighten your complexion too!
Dark brown haired gals can really benefit from a subtle ombre that fades more naturally towards the ends, or some simple highlights a few shades lighter than your natural color. For a more striking change, try adding a hint of red to brown locks.
Light brown hair looks radiant with golden highlights woven in, giving the effect of having spent weeks poolside.
Dress up red tresses with a few strategically placed rose gold highlights. Another great way to add a little edge to red hair is to do a golden ombre by lightening the ends while leaving your roots their natural strawberry shade. The same is true for dirty blond hair, with a slightly more subtle effect.
Golden-blond haired gals can try an even lighter all-around color update, while a naturally light blonde hair color can benefit from a glossing treatment.
Spring ’14′s best eye makeup look has taken a turn towards the sky and sea with a resurgence of blue hued shadow, liner and even mascara. NOTE: This is not your mother’s baby blue eyeshadow. Instead, it’s a turn towards a darker blue palette, like navy, indigo, cobalt and even an enviable sheer indigo—and stars like Beyonce, Emmy Rossum and Emma Stone are all trying this look on for size.
For a modern take on this classic color, try a highly pigmented cobalt shadow or liner boldly making a statement on the trend. Or stick with a reverse ombre, starting with navy liner and moving up over the entire eyelid blending to a sheer finish just before the eyebrow. A softer look will include choosing a sheer gray-toned blue which will highlight most any eye color, looking of-the-moment without going over the top. Or just throw caution to the wind and create a mermaid-ish holographic smokey eye with shimmering aqua, green or violet-toned blue shadows.
The look also played double duty as liner and highly pigmented eyelid stain at both Marc Jacobs and Marc by Marc Jacobs S/S 14 catwalk, and also seen at the Badgley Mischka S/S 14 presentation and Miu Miu S/S 14—all in preparation for hitting your own cosmetics case this season. So what are you waiting for?
In the current fashion climate of hi-lo collaborations and indie-chic pairings, it’s not hard to see why the tuxedo trouser is clawing its way to the forefront of what’s hot for spring 2013. Paired with a simple tee or tank, this dressy bottom is as unexpected as it is perfect for a day in the office or a night on the town — and the stripe down the side of the leg equals a long-lanky look that is universally flattering. But don’t take our word for it. Tibi, Halston Heritage, Elizabeth & James, even Forever 21, are all offering up their take on this over-is-under dressed bottom — with Miranda Kerr, Diane Kruger, and Emma Stone taking the bate. Take a look at some of our favorite celebrity tuxedo trouser looks and see if you don’t agree — the tuxedo trouser is a must-have for spring.
In her first Vogue cover, Spider-Man’s leading lady Emma Stone looks absolutely stunning in a lacy negligee-style dress donning a coat by Nina Ricci. Her blonde hair frames the gentleness of her cheekbones giving us a soft entry into the true nature of the actress.
“From Funny Girl To ‘Spider-Man”s Leading Lady,” we’re expecting to learn more about the 23 year old’s rise to fame narrative inside the story that hasn’t yet hit newsstands.
While we were able to get sneak peak at the leaked cover, we’ll have to wait for the arrival of the magazine to check out her awesome shoot. The funny girl is a bombshell on the red carpet so we’re expecting nothing less than awe-inspiring photos and amazing looks we’ll want to emulate.read more
