Before model-turned-designer Erin Wasson’s show on Friday night, we spoke with Charlotte Willer, global makeup artist for Maybelline New York, about the dusty, desert-inspired makeup the models sported. Willer wanted the makeup to reflect “this cool girl, a fashion icon who’s been in the desert all day.” So, if a cool girl/fashion icon like Wasson spends all day in the desert, what does she look like? She’s wearing tons of black eyeliner, and her face is caked with dirt. Keep reading »
World-famous supermodel Claudia Schiffer probably couldn’t look bad if she tried, but she’s making some rather, um, bold choices today, no? [London, 9/14/09] Keep reading »

Maybe it’s that I was drinking—no, chugging—the Fashion’s Night Out Kool-Aid the other night, but, gotta say, getting out and about and shopping felt pretty damn good, though not in a “I’m slapping down my credit card” way. Anyways, I wasn’t the only one who turned up at H&M’s Herald Square store. Miss J. Alexander of “America’s Next Top Model” also attended. But he (or if you ask some of Miss J. superfans, whom I had the pleasure of meeting in the “ANTM” trenches — “she”) had more on her night’s agenda than just riffling through the racks for the perfect, red winter coat. (Though there were loads of people on line for the cash register with armloads of clothes!) Miss J. was giving runway strutting lessons. Man, did people just eat it up. The line to get some catwalking tips was—I kid you not—out the door and down the street. It was madness — sheer lunacy!
So how do you rock your thang down a runway? After the jump, a bunch of tips from the catwalk vet—and a few photos of her doing what she does best. Keep reading »
Will Lindsay Lohan ever be able to hold a job? She was just barely hired to be a so-called “style consultant” to designer Emanuel Ungaro, but now rumors are flying that she’s already on the outs. The reasons? Your typical star power stuff—LiLo opted out of a press call with the Wall Street Journal and wouldn’t pose for pictures at the designer’s Fashion’s Night Out event last week.
Such a fate was already in the cards, no? But then again, Ungaro shouldn’t take it personally. Over the weekend, the star was 10 hours late to a photo shoot for her own 6126 leggings line. So you know, when it comes to effing up, LiLo doesn’t play favorites. [Fashionologie.com and OK!] Keep reading »
Headgear resembling rabbit ears figured into Erin Fetherston’s spring 2010 fashion show, continuing the animal ear trend we’ve been seeing the last few months. Would you be seen in ears on a day other than Halloween? [Erin Fetherston, New York Fashion Week, 9/13/09] Keep reading »

Derms have been recommending this vibrating, rechargeable, pore-cleaning brush in magazine articles and during office appointments since the dinos roamed the earth. Seriously, even Wilma Flintstone keyed Betty Rubble into its gorgeous skin results way back when. I tried to block out all the talk and labeled the Clarisonic brush as nothing but hype—make that expensive hype, since a Clarisonic Brush costs around $200. I’m, sadly, not s**ting you. And mostly, up until about a month ago, the price was what held me back from proving all the hype wrong. But, in a moment of total insanity, I took my debit card to Sephora, snatched a Clarisonic kit off the shelf, paid super quick so I wouldn’t come to my senses and ran out. (But not before the register lady gushed about, what else, the Clarisonic brush. No, really, does Clarisonic pay off 90 percent of the retail and beauty industry?) Well, as I found out … Keep reading »
This week actress Michelle Monaghan turned it out for the Vogue event at Saks Fifth Avenue in NYC–they were celebrating the opening of their new and improved third designer-packed floor–along with a slew of other celebs including Anna Wintour fave Charlize Theron. Anyways, Michelle really pulled off the inner lower eyelid lining thing—and it ain’t that easy to do. So many people try lining the inner rim of their eyes and hate either the results (teeny-looking eyes) or the process (getting that pencil so freaking close to your eyeball!). But if you’re someone who doesn’t mind getting in there and working it with the eyeliner, check out my eye-widening liner tip, after the jump! (I swear your eye really will look ginorm.)
