Style Stealer: Olivia Palermo Is Effortlessly Cool While Keeping Warm

Olivia Palermo! Why is she still famous? We have no idea, but we covet the hell out of her glossy chestnut hair and laid-back luxe wardrobe ― I guess you could say she’s kind of our Regina George. We’ve long shunned turtlenecks, but her fresh take on this thick, chunky fisherman-inspired knit breathes new life into the old winter stalwart. You can make like Olivia and layer a fur vest over the traditional down version for extra core warmth to weather the temperature drop, or leave the North Face at home for a night out. Keep reading »

Style Stealer: Olivia Wilde’s Fun, Fierce Leather Look

Not only did Olivia Wilde give a fiercely awesome (and hilariously revealing!) monologue alongside other female game changers at Glamour‘s “These Girls” event, but she also managed to look pretty damn fierce while doing so. The starlet, accompanied by boyfriend Jason Sudeikis, had the honor of finishing off the evening’s performances with her own frank, honest tale (namely, of how her failed marriage caused her vagina to die). We totally covet her leather-heavy look, but it’s just a little unrealistic for every day (non-celebrity) wear — switch out her leather leggings for a pair of coated skinny jeans, and you’ve got yourself an outfit that’s casual and chic while still being, you know, completely badass, just like Olivia herself.

To someone who doesn’t, like me, spend a good portion of their waking hours putting on, perfecting, and removing makeup, there may be some confusion surrounding the use of primer. A few weeks ago I set out to clarify what exactly this extra step does for your makeup and why it’s worth taking the time (and, of course, spending the money) to add one to your routine. To review: it smooths out any uneven skin texture, gives makeup a better base to adhere to, makes your foundation and concealer last longer, and more. It’s basically magic.

More people are getting into the primer game than ever, and they usually have Smashbox Photo Finish to thank as an induction into the stuff. It’s a solid choice for sure, and it’s spawned many imitations that mimic that silky, silicone-y finish — but there are so many more out there! So if you’re already familiar with using primer (or plan to make yourself familiar using my Beauty 911 tutorial), allow me to introduce you to these four lesser-known candidates.

Fall Must Haves: 10 Leather Bottom Pieces In An Array Of Colors

Celebs may have worn it first, but we’ve been feeling leather (and leather-look) pants, shorts, and skirts in the forecast for some time now. The right piece fits seamlessly into any wardrobe; it can be the centerpiece of an outfit in color or worn with anything in black. Either way, it’s a luxurious, classic look with an unexpected edge. But let’s face it — good leather doesn’t come cheap. Hell, neither does good pleather. The quest to find the right pair of pants, or the perfect skirt, isn’t easy, so we’ve made it a little easier by compiling 10 of our best bets (of both leather and vegan pleather) under $300, with 4 options under $100. Don’t be afraid to invest in leather, because if New York Fashion Week runway trends are any indication (and duh, of course they are), the look is here to stay well through the next two seasons.

Style Stealer: Nikki Reed’s Casual Colorblocking

Nikki Reed may not have quite the same level of notoriety as some of her more, ahem, high-profile “Twilight” co-stars, but if the newlywed’s low-key lifestyle is any indication, she wouldn’t have it any other way. Regardless, with (count ‘em!) four starring movie roles coming up in the next year, I don’t think it will be long before Nikki reaches leading-lady status. The actress hit up “Extra” earlier this week to talk the end of “Twilight” — or at least that’s what I think she was there for, because all I could do was plot to steal her clothes. This is the kind of outfit I love: cool, tough, and classic, with just a couple of trendy touches like colorblocking and coated jeans. We’ve got a look just like it, after the jump … Keep reading »

Style Stealer: Taylor Swift Is An Adorable American In Paris

Leave it to Taylor Swift to not only find the time and wherewithal to not only ride her bike through the streets of Paris, but to look enviably lovely (and, naturally, a bit twee) while doing so, with nary a sporty sneaker nor sweaty bun to be found. While most of us claim spandex and a helmet as the defining features of our bike-riding attire, Taylor opted for a more glamorous look that’s still functional — an ankle-length skirt spares you the Flash Factor, while a cheeky (or plain, as you please) pair of flats will serve you just as well when you’re strolling down the street with your boyfriend… who just so happens to be American royalty. What? You mean your 18-year-old boyfriend isn’t a Kennedy? Well, that’s weird. Keep reading »
