Beauty How-To: Amanda Seyfried’s “Lovelace” Premiere Look

It's rare that Amanda Seyfried — she of the rapturously ethereal angel/alien features, porcelain complexion, and long, thick, never-dyed flaxen hair — ever misses the mark on a beauty look.

Adele Trades In Her Usual Heavy Hair For A Fresher Summertime Look

Adele is pretty loyal to her signature glamorous, '60s-inspired beauty look — the chanteuse is rarely spotted without voluminous hair, flawless skin, a serious cat eye, and a bright red or nude lip.

Scarlet Fever: 10 Celeb Red Lipstick Looks
