Sunday night’s Emmy Awards gave us a seasonally mixed beauty bag — summery bright lips and dark sultry eyes cropped up in equal abundance, while makeup stalwarts like matte red lips and high-density lashes seemed to take a backseat to more innovative looks. As runway beauty becomes more dramatic and daring, Hollywood follows suit — even Julianne Hough, who is so conventionally blonde and beautiful, went for the ultimate risk by chopping off her long locks earlier this year.
The actress and dancer channeled the Belle Époque on Sunday (she described her look on Twitter as “Midnight In Paris” meets Grace Kelly), wearing her cropped hair in a helmet of pincurls, but I just loved her makeup. Impeccably sculpted brows, soft, smoky bronze shadow, and a rosy blush worn low on the cheeks made Julianne look like she could’ve stepped right out of the 1900s, but she’d be equally at home in 1925 or, well, 2012 — in fact, her makeup artist Molly Stern wanted the look to evoke “a black-and-white photograph come to life.” It’s the rare vintage-inspired face that doesn’t look dated, and with no harsh lines or bright colors, it transitions ever-so-smoothly from the office to the speakeasy (or the club, if that’s how you roll). Conveniently, it’s also festive enough to see you through the season and beyond, well into holiday parties and until the last snow fall. Bottom line: you want, nay, need to steal this look.

Kate Bosworth used to date Alexander Skarsgard, and when they broke up, she moved on to this guy, Michael Polish. Yesterday they were spotted out to lunch in Hollywood, looking cute as ever. Which is so annoying. Not only does she get to have cool blue and brown eyes (one of each), but she also dates hot dudes and manages to look amazing no matter what. Take this casual, slouchy day outfit. How cute and comfortable does she look?
While we can’t give you Alexander Skarsgard, we can give you a step by step to how to achieve her fun day look. Check it out after the jump. Keep reading »
Celebrities didn’t really bring it, fashion-wise, to this year’s Sundance Film Festival. I usually love browsing the quirky cold-weather choices, but this year I saw mostly heavy black coats and boring boots. Luckily there were a few bright spots, like Emma Roberts rocking this stunning dress. I love how the floral print pops against the black fabric. So pretty. Want one of your own? We rounded up some similar styles at non-celebrity prices–wear now with tights and boots, or pair with simple sandals in the warmer months. Click through to check ‘em out…

Lately, my look is what you might call “hobo with pms”-inspired. I’ve been working from home, which means I sit around in sweats all day. On the weekends, when I venture out to make contact with society, I can’t deal with the thought of putting on high-heels or an uncomfortable blouse that requires readjusting every two minutes. That’s why I freaking love the outfit Olivia Munn is sporting on a recent casual stroll. Every item she’s wearing — from cozy cardigan to the flat boots — is comfortable, yet streamlined. She looks completely put together, while not trying too hard. Find out how to get the look, after the jump… Keep reading »
Mary Kate Olsen is always on the top of best dressed lists. Wether it is in discussion over one of her and her sisters clothing lines — The Row or Elizabeth and James, being seen at the newest hot spot, hanging with her ridiculously cool friends or simply walking down the street, MKO always looks good. Using a recent photograph of her as inspiration, we’ve put together a look that encompasses her boho chic style: frothy chiffon mini dress, chestnut brown leather bag, long necklace and the must have accessory of the moment — clogs. A key aspect to pulling off this look is by not getting costume-y or try hard — Mary Kate has her hair sloppily pulled in a half pony tail, and although she has a bunch of accessories on she doesn’t look over loaded. And before you go shopping, think about what you can pull from your own wardrobe that will work in place of one of our suggestions. You’ll be surprised what you can repurpose from the back of your drawer, it will free up some of your budget for a possible bigger ticket item, and make this look that much more your own. Do you love the bohemian chic of the 1960’s and 70’s as it is reinterpreted today? How do you wear it?
