When it comes to the Oscars, red is a clear winner on Jennifer Lawrence (remember her Calvin Klein moment in 2011?). The peplum, the trendy back necklace, windswept cropped hair… it even looked good when this happened.

By the end of the red carpet coverage, I was SO over the nude trend but except on Kate Hudson who triple-trended it with an American Hustle-worthy neckline and structured cape.
I went back and forth about this pastel blue custom gown on Lupita Nyong’o. But I’ve decided that I like it because Lupita.

No man-bun but Jared Leto’s black-and-white combo and ombre’ beachwaves win him double.
And best-dressed bump goes to Kerry Washington.

I’m sure the prez would approve, Kevin Spacey.
Oscar nominee Lupita N’yongo continues to wow fashion-lovers with her forward ensembles and bold sartorial stylings. Couple that with her down-to-earth humility over already earning an Oscar nod after her first (!) major film, the Mexican-Kenyan thespian is, unsurprisingly, the one everyone is rooting for - and watching - come Oscars Sunday.
Below, one of my favorites from her latest walks down the red carpet, this time at an event at the Chateau Marmont. On anyone else, the blue eyeshadow, heels and bold lip would have been a little too matchy-matchy for the cut-out sheath but looks luscious against Lupita’s flawless complexion.
Nothing says “Spring is coming” to me more than a pop of yellow in an ensemble. Kate Hudson looks casually chic and oh-so-appropriately spring-ey in a yellow blouse and white skirt. Loving her topknot and winged eyeliner for the perfect amount of glam for the evening event.
"If eyebrows frame the face then that frame better come correct." So that’s a direct quote from no one in particular, but as I’ve gotten older and my brows sparser, I’ve paid increasing attention to how full, filled-out arches freshen up the face. It’s like instant youth-anization, pun unfortunate and unintended.
I had been eyeing the NYX Brow Shaper for a few weeks before I snapped it up, my hesitation rooted in my hit-or-miss experience with NYX products in the past. I’m glad to say this one is a hit that can be worn both alone or with brow powder! The unique wax pencil glides smoothly over brows, guiding each hair into place while ever-so-slightly darkening them, making them effectively bolder and more pronounced for, say, a daytime look that isn’t dramatic. For on-camera and evening looks, I’ve been experimenting with it as a base before filling in further with brow powder applied with an angled brush. Snap up this drugstore find for around $8.
