You know, I never took Elizabeth Banks to be particularly on-point fashion-wise. And then she killed it earlier this week by wearing a gorge and very structural Mary Katrantzou dress to the Met Costume Institute Ball. Here, at a New York screening for her new film “What To Expect When You’re Expecting,” Banks follows it up with a sassy and somewhat avant garde number from Peter Pilotto. As Ramona Singer of “The Real Housewives of New York” might slur after sloshing back a carafe or two of Pinot Grigio, “KADOOZE!”

 

Real Girls, Real Beauty: Gorgeous Goths

Goths are a very dark and secretive group — and they’d probably want to crawl up in a hole and die if they knew we were suggesting you emulate their makeup stylings. However, goth make up — in doses — is really awesome. Who doesn’t love a dark eye, or a dark lip, every once in a while? It’s so dramatic! We scoured Tumblr to find some images for gothy inspiration and came up with a few to get you on your way. The key with goth makeup seems to be eyeliner, eyeliner, eyeliner. Play around with it — use your eyeliner as an artist’s pencil, and have fun! It’s not life or death (even though some goths might have you believe otherwise).

Spotlight: Frye Summer Sandals Are Simply The Best

We love Frye sandals because they’re classic and surprisingly comfortable (we’ve got several pairs of wedge sandals from prior collections that we totally covet). This season, Frye’s updated its collection of summer sandal offerings with several new looks — including a Huarache ankle sandal, and a darling t-strap. You can check out their entire offering of wedges and strappy sandals on their website, but we’ve picked out a few of our favorites here, in surprising colors and updated shapes.

  1. Ramsey Kilte, $178
  2. Kara Trapunto T-Strap, $228
  3. Corrina Stitch, $198
  4. Carlie Huarache Ankle, $198

Face Oil, Free Of Breakouts

Green Skincare
These five companies are worth every penny. Read More »

I’m generally terrified of putting oil on my face because I have problematic sensitive skin that reacts badly to pretty much anything I put on it. If it’s feeling dry, a smidge of moisturizer will turn it into a zitty, oily mess. Too oily, and astringent makes it a flaky, dry patchy disappointment. But not so with Bio Oil, which is some magical moisturizing oil that seems to both soothe, and moisturize without turning my face into a noxious puddle of sebacious cysts. Bio Oil, it seems, is one of those crazy skincare products that works great on all types of skin — it reduces the signs of redness and scarring, works great on aging and dehydrated skin, and because it’s pumped full of vitamins (along with lavender, rosemary and chamomile oils), it even helps reduce the signs of scars and stretch marks. Is it a miracle product? Well, just maybe. [$10.17, Amazon]

Here’s a couple of things about dogs: They have no sense of size — if you put a chihuahua and a Labrador retriever together, the chihuahua will try and boss the lab around, and the lab will likely take it. Also, they think everybody else is a dog like them. Witness golden retriever Dickens playing with newborn little deerkins baby in the backyard. He has no idea that his playmate isn’t actually a dog, too. [YouTube]

We chose this picture of director/producer Lara Everly not only because we like the sheer-on-sheer look she’s working, but also because we wanted to highlight Everly and the event she’s snapped here attending. She was caught at the AFI Women Directors Showcase, an event celebrating the small but growing field of women who are making strides behind the lens. Everly herself is an upcoming female director with her own production company, Sweet Potato Productions, too. Great style and a vanguard in a male-dominated field? Pretty cool, no?
