Beyonce Shares New Video of Rumi and Sir with a Possible Vow Renewal

BY TATIANA TOOMER SATURDAY, JUNE 9, 2018 Cliche Magazine

Beyonce and Jay-Z kicked off their On the Run Tour II on Wednesday in Cardiff, Wales, and gave fans a glimpse of intimate moments between the pair. During the concert, Beyonce shares new video of Rumi and Sir with a possible vow renewal and the beyhive went crazy.

The Carters have mastered keeping her private life private until they’re ready to reveal all, and that’s just what they did with Rumi and Sir. Previously, the only official photo of the twins was when Bey posted on Instagram an image of her holding them in her arms when they were just one-month-old. A fresh glimpse of the now 11-month-old babies, was featured in a video interlude during the concert. That particular video also had the beyhive buzzing with speculation that the Carters may have renewed their vows when they celebrated their 10-year wedding anniversary in April.

Grandma Tina Lawson posted a screenshot from the video with the caption, “My babies.” In the photo, Beyonce and Jay-Z are wearing white, facing each other, heads down and holding hands. Rumi and Sir were also in white, being held next to them, as big sister Blue Ivy stood nearby.

While social media videos and photographs on Beyonce’s website display endless moments of affection between her and her hubby, the power couple also referenced one of their more controversial moments by making a grand entrance in an elevator shaft. This was a clear nod to the infamous elevator fight between Jay-Z and sister-in-law Solange during the 2014 Met Gala. The incident fired up infidelity rumors, which were later addressed in Beyonce’s Lemonade album and Jay-z’s 4:44. But this time, the couple appeared stronger than ever as they stood side-by-side, holding hands.

Queen Bey did not disappoint when it came to her concert fashion. According to Elle, she wore a total of six different looks. The songstress elevated her signature fishnet tights, bodysuits, and thigh-high boots by mixing it up with face masks, body jewelry, and futuristic fabrics. One of her show-stopping looks included a diamond-encrusted blazer and matching bodysuit paired with clear vinyl boots. She also brought out the sex appeal with a red leopard print bodysuit and black garter belt.

OTR II Tour’s next stop is in Glasgow, Scotland on June 9.

 First Look At ‘Scandal’ Star Kerry Washington’s New Beauty Line

by Tatiana Toomer  ETCanada.com

Kerry Washington’s new nail polish line is one you may want to get your hands on. The "Scandal" star's 15-shade Washington D.C. Fall/Winter ‘16 collection doesn’t debut until August 3, but take a look at this photo she just posted to her Instagram of her rocking a burgundy garnet shade called We the Female.

Last December, OPI announced Washington as the brand’s first-ever creative ambassador, allowing her to co-curate nail lacquer shades and develop shade names. OPI has been a longtime go-to for celebrity collaborations with past collections from Gwen Stefani, Mariah Carey, Katy Perry and even Justin Bieber.

So how much influence will the Emmy-nominated actress’ Olivia Pope character have on the line? Washington has said that this is a personal collection, not a "Scandal" focused line.

She has admitted that her two-year-old daughter Isabelle was a source of inspiration, even naming one of the shades after her. It’s a caramel crème shade called Inside the IsabelletWay.

“I thought long and hard about having my daughter involved, but once I came up with the name, I couldn’t get it out of my head,” Washington told Women’s Wear Daily. The actress also revealed to WWD a few more of her personal touches with nail polish color names likeKerry Blossom, “Liv” in the Gray, and Madam President.

Are you excited for the new collection?

'Modern Family' Star Sarah Hyland’s Fashion Takeover

by Tatiana Toomer ETCanada.com

Sarah Hyland is changing the game! The 25-year-old actress is making waves in the fashion world as Candie’s first-ever creative director. The brand is known for tapping stylish stars like past Candie’s girls Britney Spears, Carly Rae Jepsen and most recently girl group Fifth Harmony.

Hyland took to Twitter on Wednesday to share the news with her fans.

Hyland will not only star in the brand’s Fall 2016 and Spring 2017 ad campaigns, but also style them. The actress told WWD.com she is looking forward to taking on the challenge.

“The creative director part is what drew me to this the most because Candie’s has never done it and I’ve never done it, so we’re both new to this type of game,” she said.

The move comes as Candie’s is aiming to focus more on young women entering the workforce with styles for everything from the office to a night out.

Although Hyland is on hiatus from Modern Family, she will have her hands full as she heads to film ABC’s remake of Dirty Dancing while finding the time to consult on designs during her breaks.

“I’m not sure if they will send me stuff or we’ll have phone calls, but I will definitely have to bring my computer to do work outside of the movie,” she told WWD.com.

The first ads are expected to debut in late summer.

Stars Strip Down! 5 Celebs Who Once Moonlighted as Exotic Dancers

by Tatiana Toomer ETonline.com

What do Channing Tatum, Lady Gaga, Chris Pratt all have in common? They were all strippers! What's more, Nene Leakes and Amber Rose have also shed their clothes for cash.

Tatum turned his stripping past into box office gold, with the hits, Magic Mike and Magic Mike XXL. He told ET, his days of giving lap dances were short-lived.

“I only did it for like eight months or something like that,” the actor revealed. “I'm not ashamed of it, I don't suggest it to anyone.”

Gaga confessed to Bravo’s Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live that she was a burlesque dancer on the Lower East Side of New York when she was 19 years old.

“I made more money stripping than waitressing,” the pop star shared.

Pratt also tried to earn some extra money by taking his clothes off when he was 18, but he wasn’t very good at it, telling Ellen DeGeneres during a visit to her talk show, “I was like the very, very low-rent Magic Mike.”

Leakes got the most out of her striptease experiences.

The reality star dished to Bravo, “I went and bought a brand new car, I was paying my son’s tuition. I thought of the men as an ATM machine.”

Meanwhile, Rose has been ridiculed in the media for being a stripper as a teen, but she admits she had a good time while it lasted.

During an interview with Kandi Burruss, Rose raved, “I don’t have any sob stories about me dancing. I had the time of my life!”

Plan B? Jennifer Lawrence, Angelina Jolie Reveal Their Backup Careers

by Tatiana Toomer

ETonline.com

Imagine a world without Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen. Or what if Keeping up With the Kardashians never happened?! There would certainly be a huge void in Hollywood. Thankfully, we don’t have to worry about that, but we did quiz some of our favorite celebs on what they would be doing if they weren’t famous. Surprisingly enough, they had some endearing answers.

Angelina Jolie may be a household name, but her favorite thing to be called is Mommy. So it only makes sense that the next best career for her would be a stay-at-home mom.

“I think I'd just be home being a mom more. I love being a mommy. I love my kids so I'd just stay home,” the actress told ET.

Kim Kardashian says that even without Keeping up With the Kardashians, she would still be a fashionista.

“I would still be in fashion,” the reality star revealed. “I think I would be working in the stores, styling and just designing fashion stuff.”

Meanwhile, Lawrence’s backup career is something she could probably only do in the movies.

“I would like to say doctor but I know I don't have the focus for it, so I'd probably be like an out-of-work doctor trying to illegally operate on people,” the Oscar winner joked.

LL Cool J touches gold regardless of what career path he chooses.

The NCIS: Los Angeles star told us, “One of my dreams was to be a professional football player…I'm sure I would've been successful and did that and have a couple of rings by now.”

As for Jim Parsons, he loves education, so the only other thing he would be interested in doing is teaching.

“Probably college," the Big Bang Theory star shared. "I don’t want to mess up a young mind and I don’t want to deal with the high school drama.”

You’ll never guess who Melissa McCarthy is crushing on—Taye Diggs! Yes. And Rita Ora used to have googly eyes for Aaron Carter! Can you believe it? Single or coupled up, we got stars to dish on who they’ve been secretly admiring.

Meghan Trainor is currently on the Zac Efron bandwagon.

“I don't know what Zac Efron's deal is, but he's great. He's awesome, I approve. I love him. He's awesome,” the Dear Future Husband singer told ET about the heartthrob.

Sharon Osbourne is all about LL Cool J.

“He's so handsome and so gorgeous… He's such a delight. I adore him,” the Talk co-host said about the NCIS: Los Angeles star.

Kerry Washington recently revealed she’s more into a guy of a ‘higher power’!

“I am a huge believer in God, but I was not raised Catholic but I think my celebrity crush is this pope,” the Scandal star said during an appearance on Live with Kelly and Michael.

Meanwhile, unlike most kids in the ‘90s, Rita Ora skipped over Backstreet Boys star Nick Carter and raved to us all about his younger brother.

“My celebrity crush, I think it was Aaron Carter. I don't think, I know it was Aaron Carter. I remember being so obsessed, like literally like obsessed,” the British singer admitted.

Melissa McCarthy has been married for nearly a decade but she knows how to appreciate a good looking man.

“Taye Diggs is pretty. He is a bizarrely handsome dude. Yes, I'll go for that. There is nothing wrong with that,” McCarthy shared with ET.

 

How Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting, Khloe Kardashian & Other Celebs Stay Fit

by Tatiana Toomer 

ETonline.com

Have you ever had body envy for Jessica Simpson’s legs or Kate Hudson’s abs? We got celebrities to reveal their secrets behind their toned bods. As it turns out, the hottest Hollywood workouts include everything from yoga to boxing.

Kate Hudson recommends getting into the mindset of working out the parts of your body that are the most challenging.

“I think my least favorite is the abs. But I think when it’s your least favorite, it’s also the most important because it really means you need to strengthen it,” the actress told ET.

Jessica Simpson maintains her muscular shape by sculpting her legs and arms.

“A lot of squats, a lot of push-ups, gotta keep these things up,” Simpson told us during New York Fashion Week.

Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting gets new results by switching up her workout regimen.

"I was a spinning fanatic. I think I needed to shock my body. Yoga did it for me. Bikram, heated, heated, hot yoga," the Big Bang Theory star shared with ET.

Chrissy Teigen gets motivated to hit the gym by taking group classes.

The supermodel confessed to us, “I’m a big fan of working out with groups of people. I think when it’s one-on–one with me and just a trainer I get a little gossipy.”

Boxing is surprisingly a hot workout with models. Everyone from Gigi Hadid to Kendall Jenner to Adriana Lima love punching it out in the ring with their trainers.

“Boxing has been great for me because it’s like my new sport. It’s something that I can get better at,” Hadid told Vogue Magazine.

 

Nicole Kidman, Nene Leakes & More Leggy Women Who Love Shorter Men

by Tatiana Toomer

ETonline.com

Short men are in! Long-legged beauties like Nicole KidmanGigi Hadid, and Nene Leakes are making their shorter beaus their ultimate accessory and doing away with the superficial dating prejudice.

Most people would think that a shorter guy would be intimidated by a tall woman, but according to Nene Leakes it's more of an ego boost.

"Shorter guys tend to have that boss mentality, so they like to talk to taller women. Just makes them feel tall," the reality star told Conan O'Brien during a guest appearance.

Nicole Kidman is no stranger to the allure of a shorter man. Even in flats she towered over her ex Tom Cruise. Nowadays, she stands tall next to hubby Keith Urban, stilettos and all.

Kevin Hart doesn’t make any quarrels about his 5-foot 4-inch stature and his bride-to-be Eniko Parrish isn’t fazed by it either. Pharrell Williams loves himself a tall woman as well, so much so he married his 5-foot 11-inch wife back in 2013.

Gigi Hadid and Joe Jonas are inseparable even with a 3-inch height difference thanks to Hadid’s sky-high legs. Former model Liberty Ross traded in her 6-foot 3-inch ex-husband Rubert Sanders for the much shorter Jimmy Iovine. It must be love; the couple got engaged earlier this month.

Mark Wahlberg's wife Rhea Durham is only an inch taller than him and Tina Fey is eye level to her husband Jeff Richmond, but when these ladies slip on heels it makes for at least a 4-inch height gap.

 

Master Fall Menswear Like Michael B. Jordan, Orlando Bloom & More!

by Tatiana Toomer

ETonline.com

Upgrade your man’s fall wardrobe like Hollywood’s best dressed men with simple styling tips that will make a big difference. Have him on top of his fashion game with tailored suits, leather sneakers, and plaid for cutting edge and versatile looks.

If your leading man loves a good suit, have him take a cue from Fantastic Four’s Michael B. Jordan. The actor's signature suit style includes going sans tie and complementing it with a smaller collar fastened to the top. Start with a tailored suit that contours the body. The collar should hug the neck, the shoulder pad should end where the shoulder ends, and avoid boxy or baggy sleeves. The trousers need to be trim but not too tight, and shortened slightly to add distinctiveness for a sleek look.

Pairing casual footwear with suits is quickly becoming more and more acceptable with celebrities like Orlando Bloom and John Legend rocking the look on red carpets. Shoes are an accessory, but not just any style of sneakers will do the trend justice. Have him slip on a leather pair, with a low-cut design for the perfect fusion of dressy and street style.

Plaid is a fall staple that can look distinguished when worn with a double-breasted suit or contemporary when paired with tweed or cozy sweaters. Plaid suits look best when paired with a dark tie and a solid color shirt. When worn casually, the plaid print should be used as an accent and not the main attraction. Avoid mixing it with other checks like gingham, and don’t go overboard combining large prints and bold colors.

 

Blake Lively & Kate Bosworth Rocking the Sheer Trend That Won't Go Away

Halle Berry, Kim Kardashian and countless other A-list celebrities are hitting the red carpets strutting in fashion’s latest trend—sheer! The sheer trend has been heightened with various styles from see-through tops, dresses, and even skirts that show your undergarments! But don’t let this seductive style turn you into a fashion fail. Take some cues from a few fashionistas who have pulled off the look without a hitch.

Kim wore an ivory Narciso Rodriguez high-waisted pant suit that she paired with a sheer crop top and a long sleeveless blazer. Despite the sheerness factor, she kept the look conservative by adding a thick satin hem to cover her midsection. This dramatic styling was the perfect balance between sleek and sexy.

Blake was a risk taker in a jaw-dropping sheer body suit that she covered with a knee length overcoat with a thigh-high slit. The suit was adorned with stars and a turtleneck collar, giving the right amount of illusion without showing too much. Her pointy-toed pumps sealed off the look.

For a more subtle approach to the trend, try a top with a sheer collar like Kate Bosworth and Chole Grace Moretz. This modern take on a classic style will elevate your casual attire and pairs nicely with skirts and pants.

Bare those shoulders, ladies! Off-the-shoulder styles are back with a vengeance and getting love from Kate Hudson, Emma Roberts and so many other fashion-forward stars. Try shoulder-baring tops, dresses and even jumpsuits for a look you can wear all day and well into the evening.

1. Emma Roberts refreshed this sultry 80s trend with a window pane mini dress. She added a pop of color with red strappy heels, making for a flirty date night look.

2. Going to a pool party? Try Minka Kelly’s nautical-striped rendition of the trend. The buttoned down t-shirt dress is playful yet polished. Finish off the look with a pair of nude sandals.

3. Fashionista Olivia Palmero wore black leather overalls with a matching off-the-shoulder top paired with caged pumps. To make this look more daytime-friendly, try a top in a brighter color like fuchsia or royal blue.

Refresh Your Summer Office Style Like Shay Mitchell & Kim Kardashian

by Tatiana Toomer 

ETonline.com

Summer means short shorts, bikinis and flip flops! Sadly, that doesn’t apply during work hours. So how do you fashionably battle the sweltering temperatures when you’re at the office? Take tips from fashionistas Shay Mitchell, Kim Kardashian and more for looks that are right on trend and office-approved.

Footwear is key to a cool and fresh look. The trick is to not look too relaxed by wearing flip flops and instead switching to a low heel sandal or opting for thicker straps. Try slip-on styles. The lack of an ankle strap will make your legs look instantly longer. A chunky block heel will be versatile, bringing all day comfort and won’t break your dress code.

Get out of those stiff shift dresses and pencil skirts and revel in flowing dresses and maxi skirts. Cover up with a light cardigan or blazer but embrace bright colors and busy prints like Shay Mitchell for a fun yet polished look.

Brighten up your wardrobe with lighter colors like blush pink or nudes like Kim Kardashian. Pink matches with everything and looks exceptionally refreshing when paired with white. If you want to go a less girly route, try baby blue or yellow for a color that pops.

Ditch the oversized handbag and accessorize with smaller styles. Brightly colored embellished and geometric designs in a miniature form will be all you need to finish off your outfit. You can also keep it simple like Paris Hilton with a white handbag. It’ll add a freshness to neutrals and pop against darker colors.

 

Avoid Summer Beauty Blunders Like Oliva Munn & Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting

by Tatiana Toomer 

ETonline.com

Packing on layers of makeup during the summer months isn’t ideal. There’s nothing worse than your foundation melting down your face, while your eyeliner smudges and your lipstick smears—major beauty fail.

Ever wonder how celebrities manage to stay radiant under the sweltering sun? Olivia Munn told ET it’s all about hydrating your skin.

“I moisturize all day long and try not to wear any makeup if I don’t have to, so that when I do put makeup on it’s fresh,” the actress said.

Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting says her beauty secret is to remove excess oil.

“I have a lot of the packs to take the sweat down…so I just keep blotting,” The Big Bang Theory star revealed.

We also caught up with makeup artist Rebecca Epifano who says there are simple tips and tricks to fine tune your summer beauty regime for a fresh-faced look.

First things first, load up on sunblock before applying any makeup.

“The best thing to do is really layer your skin from the bottom up…you're going to want to for sure do sunscreen, you're going to want to put it all over your face and even all over your chest,” Epifano recommended.

She also suggests using a primer and tinted moisturizer as alternatives to layering on a heavy foundation.

“You're going to want to put a primer on and it's really going to have your makeup float on top of it and keep it from seeping into your pores…what's a nice thing to do on top of your primer is usually a tinted moisturizer,” she said.

 

Dress Like Fashion 'It' Girls Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid & Cara Delevingne!

by Tatiana Toomer

ETonline.com

Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner, Jourdan Dunn and Cara Delevingne are certainly making their marks in the fashion industry on-and-off the catwalk. Revamp your summer wardrobe by taking cues from the hottest models of the moment to capture that effortlessly stunning vibe.

Here are 5 rules to dressing like a fashion “it” girl:

1. Wear Calvin Klein underwear. Off-duty model style definitely includes lounging in CK underwear, as evidenced by Hadid’s, Dunn’s and Jenner’s respective Instagram pages. Wear the iconic designer’s undergarments with loose-fitted boyfriend jeans paired with the label’s matching sports bra top.

2. Strut in heels. Give the illusion of long model legs with a great pair of heels. This summer it’s all about gladiator styles, heeled sandals, and block heels. Your heels don’t have to be sky-high, just enough of a lift to elevate your look.

3. Flaunt your abs. Crop tops are a staple in a model’s wardrobe. Fortunately, midriff-baring tops come in various lengths that range from baring it all in a bustier like Hadid, to flashing a sliver of your stomach in a mid-length style.

4. Keep a chic topper handy. Beanies, baseball caps, fedoras, and wide brim styles are all model-approved. Make sure to keep a hat nearby for those bad hair days and when you’re short on time.

5. Never leave your sunglasses at home. It’s important to accessorize and trendy eyewear is an easy way to polish off your outfit. Go classic with aviator sunglasses like Jenner, retro with cat-eye shades like Delevingne, or stay on trend with mirrored lenses like Dunn.

 

The Look: Zendaya & Vanessa Hudgens Love Arm Candy

by Tatiana Toomer  

ETonline.com

Boost your wardrobe flair by stacking your bracelets, cuffs, watches and more for the latest accessory trend of the season. Celebrities love this style because you can add your own unique twist while dressing it up or down.

Zendaya has worked the layering trend into her signature style by rocking it with high-end gowns and with her off-duty street fashion. She often elevates her cocktail dresses with a few dainty bracelets and jewels on each wrist. She also switches it up by going casual in a crop top and accessorizing with a stack of 10 chunky gold bangles or more on each arm.

Go the eclectic route like Vanessa Hudgens and pile on charm bracelets, vintage trinkets, and beaded styles for a range of accent colors that will match a variety of outfits. You can also build your bracelets around a bulkier, architectural piece.

Find a balance. If you have five or less bracelets on one arm, match it by wearing a watch or cuff on the other. If you want to wear a heavy stack of bangles, as Zendaya often does, wear an equal amount on each arm. This look is especially great if you want to keep your neckline bare.

by Tatiana Toomer 

ETonline.com

Trending this season are high-waist bikini bottoms. This retro-inspired style will flatter your figure even if you don’t have perfectly sculpted abs. Pair them with a strapless, triangle, or halter bandeau bikini top like Beyonce. Try ruched sides to showcase your curves or cutout side panels for a hint of skin.

Looking for more coverage? One-piece bathing suits are sexy again! Look for high-cut legs, scoop neck and back styles for a style that is both vintage yet seductive. Have fun with subtle cutouts like Mindy Kaling and Jessica Simpsonor try exotic prints and bold colors like Vanessa Hudgens.

Finish off your beach look with the perfect pair of shades. Go for round sunglasses like Lady Gaga, Rita Ora and Chris Brown. The circular shape softens a square jaw and instantly adds a ‘70s feel to any outfit. Get playful in colorful mirrored sunglasses like Lindsay Lohan.

by Tatiana Toomer

ETonline.com

Beyonce, Ariana Grande and Mindy Kaling give us Memorial Day weekend style inspiration with fresh takes on classic trends!

Beyonce set off a new swimsuit trend when she lounged in a kiddie pool wearing a Chicago Bulls one-piece suit for her Tidal exclusive Feeling Myself music video. The bathing suit fit her body like a glove, accentuating her curves. If you’re looking into getting a jersey suit, be sure to have a tailor mode it to your body for the most flattering style.

Ariana Grande broke away from her signature half up, half down hairstyle earlier this week and went chic with a top knot bun. This look is a great choice if you want to give your hair a break from flat irons or if you’re not into the big sock bun style. Simply pull your hair into a high ponytail, twist your hair into a tight rope, and then coil it around itself at the base. Finish with a light weight hair spray to keep your strands in place.

Mindy Kaling looked effortlessly chic while promoting her new film, Inside Out. She donned a flouncy floral Alexander McQueen dress one day, and a sleeveless mesh dress the next. Both looks featured red hues and giant floral prints, and were paired with open-toed ankle strapped heels.

How to Look Effortlessly Chic in a Jumpsuit Like Chrissy Teigen & Gwyneth Paltrow

by Tatiana Toomer  

ETonline.com

Who doesn’t love a great jumpsuit?! From the Kardashian sisters to Selena Gomez just about every fashion forward starlet has been seen rocking the stylish onesie, and with good reason. They're easy to wear, uber-comfortable, and look great on all body types.

We’re taking style inspiration from the stars on how to make the look work for your unique style and shape.

1. Try Long Sleeves: Long-sleeved jumpsuits are a fun alternative to the typical pantsuit. It’s sophisticated, sleek, and appropriate to wear around the office or to a meeting. Gwyneth Paltrow showed the simple elegance of a neutral toned one-piece in a figure-hugging Elie Saab number, while Scarlett Johansson stood out from the crowd at the MTV Movie Awards in a Zuhair Murad coral jumpsuit with leaf cutouts.

2. Cleavage Is OK: Go bold with a deep v-neckline like Chrissy Teigen and Gina Rodriguez for a night out on the town. The plunging neckline draws the eye down the body and going sans bra will achieve unbroken lines and show the ease of the sultry look. Teigen balanced out her severe plunging neckline with long sleeves and a wide-leg silhouette, while Rodriguez was carefree in a loosely fitted white Alexander Wang jumpsuit with large lapels.

3. Belt It!: If you're a curvy girl, give definition to your waist by accessorizing with a belt or drawstring. Mindy Kaling wore a black jumpsuit and cinched her waist with a beaded belt on an episode of The Mindy Project.

4. Try a Tapered Leg: For petite girls, add to the lengthening effect of a solid one-piece by opting for a tapered leg and open toe sandals or heels. Wide leg jumpsuits tend to overpower smaller frames, and closed toes shoes and booties will make you appear shorter. Gigi Hadid wore her cropped leg animal print jumpsuit with minimal accessories, strappy heels, and elevated the look by adding a leather jacket.

 

Girlfriend Jeans: The Curvy Girl Denim Trend Everyone Is Wearing!

by Tatiana Toomer

ETonline.com

The perfect pair of jeans may be one of the most difficult things to find, but if you’re a curvy girl it may have just gotten a little easier! Aimee Cheshire, a former plus size model who now runs HeyGorgeous.com, raves that the girlfriend jean is the answer to all of your denim troubles.

So what is the girlfriend jean? Think of it as a more fitted boyfriend jean, yet more flattering mom jean. The goal is to help solve that common issue we’ve all run into: sometimes jeans fit perfectly on the hips but loose on the waist or they don’t hug curves the way they should.

“What's great about it is that it has a higher rise on both the front and back of the jean so it can help accommodate your tummy and help smooth things out. The pocket placement is generally larger, which is flattering for your rear,” Cheshire says.

Fashion-forward celebrities of all sizes love this style. Gwen Stefani wore a pair of deconstructed girlfriend jeans while on a coffee run. Mindy Kaling went for the double denim look, and plus size model Ashley Graham topped hers with a loose-fitted buttoned-down top.

“If you're a hippy girl, sometimes you have trouble getting the jeans over your hips. And then when you fasten it you get a little gapping in the back. So it's great to look for jeans with a little stretch or even elastic banding in the back that is kind of hidden to give you that flexibility,” Cheshire suggests.

Cheshire also notes that dressing well has a lot to do with understanding your body shape.

“It's just about working with your proportions and finding those items that work with your figure versus forcing yourself into things that will work against it,” Cheshire advises.

 

5 Things Your Man Should Know About Spring Style

by Tatiana Toomer  

ETonline.com

Whether your guy needs a spring overhaul, a simple wardrobe refresh, or wants to stay ahead of the fashion curve, luxury sportswear designers and celebrity stylists, Ashley Sean Thomas and Ainsley Thomas, gave ET insight as to which styles men should be wearing this season. The twin brothers run a clothing line, Bad Penny Collection, and have been working in the industry for more than a decade.

Here are five tips to keep your guy on trend:

1. Start with the basics. Dressing well begins with a strong foundation. From grooming to finding the right fit, it’s the small details that make a huge difference.

“He has to have a good barber… a good tailor… and then, a perfect pair of shoes. You have to start with the essentials,” Ashley Sean says.

2. Say yes to white jeans. White denim may seem like a questionable style choice for men, but when fashion forward stars like Jared Leto, Kanye West, and Drake are sporting the clean, minimal look it makes for a desirable wardrobe choice. The Thomas brothers suggest that your guy be selective with the top he chooses to pair with it.

“You don't really want to wear too much of an open chest with white jeans," Ainsley says.

You can do a little denim top with it. You can even do a blazer with it. Black blazer, denim top, white jeans, that's a cool crisp look,” Ashley Sean recommends.

3. Make a statement with outerwear. Every man should have a good trench coat, blazer and statement jacket. He can update classic styles like topping with a suede trench, or give blazers a new meaning like Ne-Yo and wear bright multi-colored jacket to the beach.

4. Embrace mesh. The sports luxe trend is dominating menswear with mesh fabrics being incorporated in everything from tees and knits to bomber jackets and shorts.

“I love how they’re mixing mesh with everything. Mesh with fleece, mesh with soft leathers. I love that trend,” Ainsley raves.

5. Add flair to the denim on denim trend. Double up on denim like Cody Simpson, Kevin Hart, and David Beckham by mixing light and dark washes. The Bad Penny designers say there is a multitude of ways to reinvent the classic look.

Ashley Sean advises, “vests, motorcycle jackets, there’s an array of things you can do. Great boots, mix it with that instead of the ordinary tennis shoe."

It doesn’t have to be the same color denim. It can be a black denim shirt with blue denim jeans,” Ainsley suggests.

 

How to Look Effortlessly Chic in a Jumpsuit Like Chrissy Teigen & Gwyneth Paltrow

by Tatiana Toomer

ETonline.com

Who doesn’t love a great jumpsuit?! From the Kardashian sisters to Selena Gomez just about every fashion forward starlet has been seen rocking the stylish onesie, and with good reason. They're easy to wear, uber-comfortable, and look great on all body types.

We’re taking style inspiration from the stars on how to make the look work for your unique style and shape.

1. Try Long Sleeves: Long-sleeved jumpsuits are a fun alternative to the typical pantsuit. It’s sophisticated, sleek, and appropriate to wear around the office or to a meeting. Gwyneth Paltrow showed the simple elegance of a neutral toned one-piece in a figure-hugging Elie Saab number, while Scarlett Johansson stood out from the crowd at the MTV Movie Awards in a Zuhair Murad coral jumpsuit with leaf cutouts.

2. Cleavage Is OK: Go bold with a deep v-neckline like Chrissy Teigen and Gina Rodriguez for a night out on the town. The plunging neckline draws the eye down the body and going sans bra will achieve unbroken lines and show the ease of the sultry look. Teigen balanced out her severe plunging neckline with long sleeves and a wide-leg silhouette, while Rodriguez was carefree in a loosely fitted white Alexander Wang jumpsuit with large lapels.

3. Belt It!: If you're a curvy girl, give definition to your waist by accessorizing with a belt or drawstring. Mindy Kaling wore a black jumpsuit and cinched her waist with a beaded belt on an episode of The Mindy Project.

4. Try a Tapered Leg: For petite girls, add to the lengthening effect of a solid one-piece by opting for a tapered leg and open toe sandals or heels. Wide leg jumpsuits tend to overpower smaller frames, and closed toes shoes and booties will make you appear shorter. Gigi Hadid wore her cropped leg animal print jumpsuit with minimal accessories, strappy heels, and elevated the look by adding a leather jacket.

Spring Denim Trends: Go Crisp White, Distressed or Flared!

by Tatiana Toomer 

ETonline.com

A girl can never have too many jeans, so make spring the perfect excuse to refresh your denim collection. Get right on trend like your favorite celebrities with three different styles big this season: white, distressed and flared jeans.

Take a risk with pristine white jeans. Think of them as a blank slate to amplify your style. Whether you’re a minimalist, a girlie girl, or a rocker chick, white denim will fit your unique flair. Pull off a white on white look by maintaining a minimalist approach to your outfit with a sleek hairstyle and minimal jewelry. Go relaxed with a casual tee, create a professional vibe with a blazer likeMiranda Kerr, or get playful with a bright mix of colored accents.

Nothing quite says the weekend like distressed denim. Shredded jeans are a testament of effortless style that will take you from brunch with your friends to a casual date at the movies. Actress Ashley Madekwe is the epitome of street wear chic when she accessorizes her ripped denim with thigh-high boots. Whether they are tattered at the knee or thrashed throughout, pair with strappy heels for a polished look or go ultra-casual with a slouchy top and sneakers.

Embrace fashion’s 70s revival with high-waisted flared jeans. This ultra-flattering style has been embraced by everyone from Jennifer Lopez, Eva Longoria to Chrissy Teigen. The key to pulling off this trend is wearing them at the right length. If they are too short, the wide flare will cut your leg off at the wrong spot. If they are too long, you’ll end up tripping over them, so aim for a hemline that almost skims the floor.

 

Play Up Your Curves Like Kim Kardashian, J.Lo & Beyonce

by Tatiana Toomer  

ETonline.com

Stars like Beyonce, Jennifer Lopez and Kim Kardashian are leading the way in Hollywood’s booty obsession with figure-hugging silhouettes that accentuate their derrieres. Get in on the booty craze with simple styling tricks that will have your butt looking rounder and perkier.

Complement your backside like Kim Kardashian with a body-hugging pencil skirt. Amplify your rear with a skirt that is snug around your hips and pair it with a loose-fitting blouse. Geometric shapes and animal prints will also take you one step closer to achieving the infamous Kardashian booty.

Skinny jeans with stretch material are another great trick to showing off a rounder bottom. Unlike the relaxed boyfriend jean, skinny jeans create curves by hugging your butt in a way that makes it appear lifted and toned. Enhance the effect like Beyonce by wearing them with crop tops or blouses that hit at the waist.

Trousers are a great alternative because they are straight in the front for a polished look, and when well-tailored and fitted they can do wonders for your derriere. Whether you prefer straight legs, flared, or crop it’s all about the fit, so have then taken in at the hips and relaxed on the legs.

 

3 Fresh Hairstyles to Try for Spring!

by Tatiana Toomer 

ETonline.com

There’s no better way to reinvent your look than freshening up your hairstyle and this spring it’s all about easy to manage natural looking styles.

The bob haircut is the reigning champ this season with countless stars like Kim Kardashian, Margot Robie, and Lilly Collins ditching their long locks for this chopped trend. Go for an edgier take on the classic style with an asymmetrical cut like Rosamund Pike and Taylor Swift. The asymmetrical bob has one side longer than the other, so style your hair with a deep part to the side and add volume with tousled waves.

Take the plunge like Scarlett Johansson and Kayley Cuoco with a boyish pixie. This drastic cut is low maintenance and is perfect if you are looking to show off your bone structure. It’s all about short sides and slightly longer strands on the top. Be a rebel like Johansson with a razor-cut style or go fun and flirty like Cuoco with a texturized messy look.

Not a fan of short hair? Get an effortless bohemian vibe with loose waves. To pull off the look like Amber Heard you’ll need soft flexible curls. Capture a carefree beachy finish by using minimal heat and adding definition with a light hairspray.

Are you ready to kick off those winter booties?!

Get refreshed for spring with new shoe styles like gladiator sandals, embellished flats, and more. This season's footwear fashion is all about easy-to-wear stand out styles and we’re breaking down how to rock each trend.

Gladiator sandals are back and look great with all of spring’s favorite pieces from maxi skirts to wide leg trousers. Ease into the trend with a strappy flat that will pair nicely with shorts, dresses, cropped pants and skirts. For a sexy bold look, style like Jennifer Lopez with knee-high gladiator heels and a leather skirt, accented with a thigh high slit.

You can also take a break from your 6-inch heels by slipping on some stylish flats. Fashionista Alexa Chung is a fan of the relaxed style, always sporting the latest designs on red carpets and showing us just how versatile this trend really is. Look for embellishments and creative details, like feathers, tapered toes, slingbacks and ankle straps.

When you’re ready to add a little height to your look, strut in disco glam platforms or flatforms like Nicki Minaj and Jessica Alba with dramatic colors and patterns. Wear them with billowy trousers and knee-length dresses for a look that is both chic and edgy. Block heels will also elevate your look without losing the comfort. Want to create a hippie chic vibe?

by Tatiana Toomer  

ETonline.com

Channel your inner Brigitte Bardot with the resurgence of the long-beloved gingham print. Designers have freshened up this all-American style by edging it up with high slits and figure-flattering silhouettes. Rihanna recently rocked a cheery outfit with a bubblegum pink and white skirt suit with a central slit and deep v-neckline.

Keep it casual and carefree this spring with a little denim dress. Play up your personal style like Chole Grace Moretz in a patchwork denim dress paired with a velvet belt. You can also elevate the look with flirty gladiator heels or go bohemian chic with T-strap sandals.

Glide through the season with flowy maxi dresses. This trend has become a spring staple because it’s chic, elegant, and comfortable. Go for an ethereal vibe with a featherweight fabric in delicate floral, pair with flat metallic sandals and minimal jewelry.

Take some cues from Zendaya and Diane Kruger when it comes to styling sporty chic culottes. These playful pants hang like a skirt and are extremely versatile. Zendaya went casual pairing hers with a crop top, while Kruger was ladylike in patterned wide leg trousers and a knit top. The trick to pulling off the trend is to wear them way above the ankle and high on the waist.

Go for romance with delicate white lace. Wear the trend in everything from pleated skirts, ruffled tops to curve-hugging dresses. Style a lace ruffle top and fluted lace skirt for a lunch date or step out in a strapless tiered lace gown for date night. Dress the trend head-to-toe with lace slingback pumps or lace espadrilles.

 

4 Style Tips to Slim & Highlight Your Best Shape like Mindy Kaling & Beyonce!

by Tatiana Toomer 

ETonline.com

Dressing well is all about understanding your shape and how to accentuate your curves and look no further than celebrities like Beyonce and Mindy Kalingfor figure flattering styles to get you inspired!

Here are four awesome tips for channeling these fashion-forward celebs!

1. Slim your silhouette with a monochromatic outfit. Creating a solid column of color will make you look longer and leaner. Step out of your comfort zone and try this trend in colors other than black. Channel Beyonce in a maroon tailored pantsuit with a long blazer and slim cut trousers. One streamline of color always looks elegant and is virtually the easiest trend to pull off.

2. Avoid horizontal details and opt for vertical lines. Going vertical has a slimming effect on the body wherever you place them. Mindy Kaling flatters and enhances her shape with strategically placed vertical lines on her outfits from gowns to casual dresses.

3. Diagonal stripes and large floral prints are the most flattering patterns.These prints create more shape and definition. Busy patterns also hide areas of your body that you want the eye to skip over rather than focus on. Try wearing a dress or blouse where there is no clear beginning or end to the pattern.

4. Steer clear of both baggy and clingy clothes. The ideal fit will skim over your body and allow for movement. Look for fabrics that are medium to lightweight, such as linen. Smooth textures such as velvet, flannel, and wool will also have a slimming effect if the material is not too thick.

 

Get Sexy like Megan Fox & Mila Kunis for Valentine's Day!

by Tatiana Toomer 

ETonline.com

If Valentine’s Day is nothing else, it’s a great occasion to dress up. Whether you have a hot date or you’re flying solo, take the opportunity to try some head-turning trends!

Elevate your sweetheart style beyond the cliché heart prints and opt for sultry shades that play to the romance of Valentine’s Day. Rich plum tones are sensual and sexy. Megan Fox and Naomi Watts spiced things up earlier this week in dresses with a deep purple hue; Fox in a leg baring Salvatore Ferragamo and Watts in a silk Zac Posen.

Want to stand out from the crowd? Dare to rock a creamy white ensemble likeReese Witherspoon and Rosamund Pike in their winter white at this year’s Academy Awards Nominee Luncheon. The key to wearing winter white is the fabric — go with wool, cashmere, silk or leather for a refreshed yet wearable look.

Polka dots and pattern play are also all the rage right now, and are also a great look to try if you’re going to be hanging out with your friends at the movies or a party. Try a monochrome and feminine outfit like Kerry Washington’s Dolce & Gabbana black and white polka-dot dress paired with white pumps. Finish off the look with a Valentine’s Day inspired accessory like Washington’s Roger Vivier ‘Love’ and heart-motif shoulder bag. Emma Stone also showed her love for the playful print by mismatching a spotted asymmetrical skirt with a sequin striped top.

If you are looking for a classic go-to, there’s always an effortless little black dress. Get the perfect silhouette by enhancing the closet staple with a structured bodice and flared skirt, like Mila Kunis at the Los Angeles premiere of Jupiter Ascending.

 

3 Easy Steps to Fresh-Faced Beauty like Halle Berry, Sarah Hyland & More

by Tatiana Toomer  

ETonline.com

The all natural look is back with a vengeance thanks in part to celebrities posting make-up free selfies and the Spring 2015 runways embracing minimalistic beauty. The key is faking a flawless complexion with subtle enhancements. The no make-up, make-up look is the easiest way to create a youthful glow and it adds an effortless look to any outfit.

Get natural looking radiant skin like Gisele Bundchen and Jordana Brewster by starting with a moisturizer. Moisturizer hydrates the skin and adds to its luminosity. Apply a thin layer of tinted primer to help even out your complexion. Then smooth foundation under your eyes and over problem areas with a make-up sponge instead of concealer for a more natural, sheer finish.

The next trick is to create the illusion of strong eyebrows like Lily Collins andSarah Hyland. Fuller eyebrows add definition to your face and help brighten your eyes. Comb on a tinted brow gel and focus most of the color on your arches where your brows are naturally the darkest. A brow pencil or shadow will also have the same effect.

Make your lips look rosy and smooth with a tinted lip balm and a few dabs of lipstick. Choose a shade of lipstick that is slightly darker than your natural lip color so your lips don’t look pale or frosty. Look for a creamy shade that is not shimmery. The trick is to apply the lipstick with your fingers instead of straight from the tube to achieve that bare-faced look.

 

Sizzle in Lingerie-Inspired Clothing Like Rihanna and Britney Spears

by Tatiana Toomer  

ETonline.com

The Spring/Summer 2015 runways have brought the focus back to the woman’s body with lingerie-inspired designs. Rihanna, Britney Spears, Lea Michele and more are indulging in the trend and are taking it to new heights. Work fashion’s latest craze into everyday looks by balancing out overexposure with cover-ups and other layering pieces.

Ease your way into the trend by taking a cue from Sarah Hyland, Britney Spears, and Dita Von Teese. The goal is to be chic and demure with a hint of sex appeal. Von Teese subtly exposed her brassiere under a velvet sleeved dress. Hyland teased her black lace bra through a romper with a deep V-neckline. You can also add a layer of sophistication like Spears in a chic white suit paired with a lace-panel camisole.

Turn up the heat in sultry see-through pieces like Lea Michele, Dakota Fanning, and Emily Blunt. Michele and Fanning kept little to the imagination in form-fitting peek-a-boo dresses with crochet and lace detail. Blunt elevated the look with a tulle dress, which discreetly displayed her bralet through rose embroidered detail. Keep in mind that color scheme is very important. Black is bold and sexy and bright colors are more playful.

Take the trend to the extreme like Rihanna and Madonna with exposed garter belts and wearing dress slips as actual outerwear. Pull the look off by teaming a dress slip with an oversized sweater, coat or leather jacket. Edge it up with chain or spike accessories and ankle boots.

Long vests make for great season to season transitional pieces because they can be worn over anything from dresses to pants. Jennifer Lawrence tried the trend with a black and white vest accented with an asymmetrical lapel and black pants. Pretty Little Liars star Shay Mitchell put a fun twist on the menswear style by layering a tux-inspired vest over a dress. This sleeveless coat is a great alternative to the blazer and is polished enough to take you from an office meeting to after work cocktails.

Culottes are sophisticated yet playful pants that hang like a skirt. The versatility of culottes allows them to be styled casual and sporty and even elevated to more formal looks. Recently, Rashida Jones highlighted her waist with linen culottes and a tucked in blouse at the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic .Wearing this trend is all about showing off your footwear so go for ladylike options such as sleek heels or pointy toe shoes

Shoulder baring tops and dresses are a sexy throwback trend to the ‘80s. You can rock the shoulder baring silhouette with discreet cutouts or place your neckline on full display with an off the shoulder dress or top. This style looks great in both fitted and blousy shapes. Accessories should be kept to a minimum as to not to distract too much from the simple elegance of this trend

 

Emma Stone, Iggy Azalea Channel the Sixties In These Hot Winter Looks

by Tatiana Toomer

ETonline.com

Warm up your closet with fur coats, vintage sixties, and clean lines for winter.

The most daring trend to try this winter is ‘60s mod. Give this artistic and vibrant style a modern twist. Hailee Steinfeld had a retro moment at the Tribeca Film Festival in a Valentino leather dress with a colorful polka dot print. She paired it with pointy black heels and a matching clutch. Avoid wearing ‘60s-inspired clothing from head to toe. Instead mix it up with contemporary pieces. This look is defined by short A-line dresses, bright colors, and bold geometric and psychedelic prints.

The winter alternative to plaid is windowpane. Streamline grid print pieces with neutral accents. Emma Stone teamed her black and white check skirt with a little black sweater on the The Tonight Show back in October. For a fearless look, clash windowpane bottoms with a polka dot or striped blouse. Also, don’t be afraid to layer two pieces in the same pattern.

Warm up with a posh fur coat like Iggy Azalea and Ciara. Azalea recently donned an Elizabeth and James multicolor fur coat, while Ciara has been known to stay classic in solid colored furs. This luxe style elevates any outfit with elegance. Try it in black, white, brown and even bold bright colors. The new trend is to wear a mid- length sleeved coat so you can show off your blouse or sweater sleeves. The coat itself can hit anywhere from your waist to your calves.

 

Move over Orchid! Why Marsala Is Beyonce and Taylor Swift’s Color for 2015

by Tatiana Toomer 

ETonline.com

The hottest trend to get you into 2015 is Pantone’s color of the year, marsala. Last year radiant orchid, which is comprised of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, dominated the fashion scene but now marsala is taking over. It’s a deep, reddish amber that richens everything from wardrobe pieces and beauty products, to accessories.

Fashion trendsetters like Taylor Swift, Beyoncé, and more have been hitting the red carpets and showing us why marsala is worthy of being Pantone’s “it” color. Beyoncé stunned in the sultry shade at the Billboard Women In Music Luncheon with a side knot dress that featured an asymmetrical hemline and a thigh high slit. Taylor Swift was seductive in a one-shoulder chiffon Reem Acra dress at Z100’s Jingle Ball. And Anna Kendrick embraced a classic look in a cozy rich velvet long sleeve wrap dress.

Complement neutral tones like black or navy with a marsala toned clutch or heels for an easy and subtle way to work the color into your wardrobe. This deliciously warm shade also pairs nicely with winter white or a mustard hue.

Rihanna indulged in the color at the First Annual Diamond Ball by highlighting her lips with this deep burgundy. Clean and dramatic eye makeup, like the R&B singer’s golden hued shadows and heavy winged eye liner, pair nicely with marsala as a dramatic lip color for an edgier style.

 

Jennifer Aniston, Nicki Minaj, and Jessica Alba Strut in the Latest Boot Trends

by Tatiana Toomer 

ETonline.com

Elevate your winter wardrobe with boots that radiate femininity and style. From booties to knee-highs to crazy colors, here’s a rundown of every kind of boot to get you through these cold months!

The staple bootie gets a refresh with unexpected cutouts from the ankle to the heel. They make for a cool and sophisticated pairing with jeans or flirty dresses and skirts. This style comes in a range of designs from thick heels to pointy toes. On colder days, you can add your own unique twist by wearing them with trendy socks.

Knee and thigh-high boots transition smoothly from day to night. Jennifer Aniston styled her knee high boots with tights and a tartan wool mini dress to a special screening of Cake in New York recently. Swap out your stilettos for thigh high boots for a sleek and sexy date night look. Try them with a knee-length skirt for a seamless outfit to create the illusion of longer legs.

Take risks like Rita Ora and Nicki Minaj with bright colors and embellishments. The more details the better; exposed zippers, hardware, sequins, studs all make for fashion forward footwear. Boots in non-traditional colors like royal blue or crimson red open you up for endless outfit possibilities.

Jessica Alba and Hailee Steinfeld play up the versatility of laced ankle boots. Steinfeld wore a long sleeved sweetheart dress to the Teen Vogue Young Hollywood party paired with black lace-up booties. The boots added a bit of edge to a typically classic look. Alba went causal chic to the TOMS for Target launch event with light denim and grey platform suede lace-up boots.

Step out of your comfort zone with textured styles. Leather and suede are always a safe bet, but dare to try snakeskin, feathers, fur, or wool for creative and warm looks.

The convenient new beauty app alleviates the stress of getting holiday hair and make-up ready by sending a trained stylist to your house in as little as an hour’s notice. You can get everything from bombshell curls and waves to smokey eye make-up and bold lips at an affordable price.

We spoke with GLAMSQUAD'S top hair stylist Erik McEwen and make-up artist Alix Taylor for quick tips and tricks to looking fabulous this holiday season.

Blake Lively stuns every time she dons a textured ponytail and it is one of top looks to try this season. McEwen suggests GLAMSQUAD'S Fresh Face ponytail. It is structured in three different sections to insure it stays in place.

“We incorporate everything into this as far as the security of it so it's not going to fall throughout the night…you can really personalize this too from the top, McEwen explains. “You can get a little more texture in there if you want.”

Make-up artist Alix Taylor says a simpler hairstyle will give you freedom to go for a bolder make-up look.

“The great thing about the ponytail is that since it’s so off your face you can feel free to be a little bit more bold with your make-up,” Taylor explains. “Do those flirty lashes and that bold red lip.”

Bold lip colors are a favorite among starlets like Amanda Seyfried and Emma Stone. Taylor suggests starting with a lip balm to hydrate your lips and then opting for a lip stain so that the color will last longer.

Another trend to try is metallic eye shadow. It will brighten your eyes with a foil finish. “We’re seeing a lot of silvery metallic. Metallic for holiday is a staple,” Taylor says. “Last winter it was more gold and this year is a little more cooler toned.”

Kendall Jenner’s signature hairstyle with sleek and straight strands is also a great look for holiday festivities. Keep your hair smooth with a frizz control serum and control flyaways with a light weight hairspray. This will help maintain your hair's sleekness without making it stiff.

Celebrity Designer Handbags: Don’t Get Caught With a Knockoff!

by Tatiana Toomer 

ETonline.com

The best celebrity street-style is often polished with a luxury handbag like Louis Vuitton, Hermès, or Chanel. Before adding these lust-worthy purses to your collection, be wary of falling victim to fakes in the second-hand marketplace. From color variations to interior lining and zipper details, there is a lot to evaluate when accessing the authenticity of designer bags.

Jennifer Lopez, Khloe Kardashian, Eva Longoria and so many other starlets are obsessed with the classic Hermès Birkin. Its iconic namesake and its ladylike allure make it worth the hefty investment. The authentic shape is very structured with defined edges. A fake version will show bulges where there should be straight lines. Hermès leather and exotic skins are sourced from all over the world, so the color of the bag should never look like it is painted on.

Louis Vuitton is a top choice for many celebs like Miranda Kerr and Zoe Saldana because of its attention to craftsmanship. Many Louis Vuitton bags are made of a coated canvas with a leather trim. Feel the leather out. It should feel dry at the touch, not oily or sticky. The Spring/Summer 2015 collection consist of new designs of the Twist Lock Shoulder bag, which has a noticeably puffier quilted exterior. Deflated sections are an identifying clue to a replica version.

Chanel’s signature flap bag makes for chic arm candy on Lauren Conrad, Miley Cyrus, and Kendall Jenner. Look for perfect stitching. It should be seamless from the front to the back and the quilting should be symmetrical and perfectly aligned.

Design logos are always a clear detector for any fashion house. For instance, the letters of Fendi’s FF logo should never touch and Louis Vuitton’s logo will never be cut off at the seams.

It will instantly elevate your look with its delicate detailing.

The wide brim hat will have you looking like a star. It is the go-to hat for stars like Beyoncé, Cody Simpson, Jessica Alba, and more. This season's hot accessory is polished with a structured style that has a sophisticated edge. Get yours in rich fall hues like red or plum.

For men, Matthew McConaughey and Nick Jonas are giving the old school plaid suit a refresh. McConaughey hit the red carpet of the London premiere ofInterstellar in a Kent and Curwen Prince of Wales check suit. McConaughey made the smart choice of pairing it with a solid shirt to allow the suit to speak for itself. Nick Jonas went sans tie at the Topshop Topman New York City flagship opening dinner with a closely tailored suit that is accessorized with a collar bar. A collar bar is a distinguished choice and adds a bit of character to a formal look.

 

Kim Kardashian, Sarah Hyland & More Stars Show Us How To Dress For Halloween Without a Costume

by Tatiana Toomer

Angel costumes are a popular choice each year. You can play to this angelic theme by wearing a winter white ensemble. Kim Kardashian celebrated her 34th birthday in a ruched Alexandre Vauthier dress. The figure hugging fabric and plunging neckline streamline with the sexy adult costumes. If you want a more wholesome look, opt for a youthful outfit like Sarah Hyland at The Art of Elysium pre-event dinner for HEAVEN 2015. She styled plain white oversized pants with an embellished collared top.

Gothic costumes will forever be a staple of Halloween, and it is easy to pull off this look without a costume. A long black dress with interesting fabric or intricate detailing will help you achieve this dark and mysterious look. Jessica Chastain’s and Camila Alves’ dresses at the Interstellar LA premiere are great examples. Chastain wore a black Givenchy gown with a lace side panel and an open back. Alves stunned in a high shine Rubin Singer liquid nylon gown. The dress featured a geometric print which tunes nicely with Halloween.

Animal themed costumes will be another big trend. Shine bright like Margot Robbie at the FGI Night of Stars event with a long sleeved green sequin leopard print dress that pairs nicely with strappy sandals. A casual alternative to costumes is a graphic tee like Bethanny Mota’s last year which read, “404 error costume cannot be found,” and dress it up with your favorite accessories.

 

Secrets from the Stylist: Go Inside the ‘2 Broke Girls’ Costume Closet

by Tatiana Toomer

ETonline.com

Kat Dennings’ and Beth Behrs’ signature styles of well accessorized and affordable looks on 2 Broke Girls continues to inspire trends for the everyday fashonista and we have costume designer Trayce Field to thank for that! The fashion mastermind has been with the show since the very beginning and is behind the show’s most stylish moments, including those now iconic diner uniforms.

“When you see those it's instant recognition,” the designer says. “The fit is still the same. Kat is a very voluptuous beautiful girl, we wanted to make sure that her curves were accentuated. Beth has the most amazing long legs so her uniform is shorter, so it's still sort of the same fit, the girls love it…”

Field is responsible for dressing the entire cast, guest stars, and background actors from head to toe, so one can only imagine how large of a budget it must take to style a heavy load of actors. So where does this stylist find the perfect pieces for so many people?

“I go everywhere. On any given day it's like I can go from like H&M, I can be at Kmart, all the way up to Saks and Neiman's and Barney's. I order stuff from Bergdorf's in NY all the time…”

Field says a great outfit can consist of mixing high and low brands, but the key is in how you style it. There’s no shame in recycling wardrobe just find new ways to wear a look by switching up your accessories.

"I really feel like accessories pull together the outfit,” Field says. "I do feel like if you belt an outfit or you just add the right earring it pulls it together. It could be like a purse, but I feel like those little special touches just bring it all together.”

Season four of 2 Broke Girls premieres Monday October 27th on CBS.

 

Jennifer Lawrence, Emma Stone & Nicole Richie Rock Our Favorite Looks of the Week!

by Tatiana Toomer

ETonline.com

Hollywood’s most stylish stars can sometimes make poor stylistic choices so we’re looking at the do’s and don’ts of the latest red carpet trends.

Nicole Richie and Reese Witherspoon recently strutted down the red carpets wearing sheer lace, which can be very sultry and glamourous when styled correctly. Richie successfully pulled off a rocker chic look at the AOL Originals Fall Premiere event with a lace and rose print gown. This Blumarine design called for a touch of elegance and she delivered by pulling her hair back and keeping accessories to a minimum with a choker necklace. Reese Witherspoon's styling of a black Stella McCartney gown missed the mark at her premiere for Wild during the 58th BFI London Film Festival. There were a lot of contrasting elements in the design which may have worked if she had pushed the limits by adding a cuff bracelet, or by stepping out of her comfort zone and slicking her hair back.

Pieces embellished with beaded embroidery and sequins give classic shapes a daring edge. Emma Stone stunned on the New York Film Festival red carpetwearing an olive green embroidered top and black asymmetrical skirt. Her Jason Wu ensemble was accented with black Aquazzura pumps and Ana Khouri ear cuffs. This look was a success because it appeared effortlessly elegant. On the other hand, Eva Longoria’s beaded Emilo Pucci mini dress, which she wore as one of her seven outfit changes during the 2014 NCLR ALMA Awards, wasn’t the best fit for her. The dress draped loosely over her body and as a result it gave her an unflattering boxy shape. This dress could have accentuated her petite body better if it was tailored and had more structure.   

Jennifer Lawrence and Shailene Woodley both went for menswear inspired pieces earlier in the week. Lawrence pulled off a sexy chic look at the premiere for Serena. She wore a black wool coat dress featuring a plunging neckline. It had clean lines and was tailored impeccably. Shailene Woodley wore a Temperley London navy vest and slim trousers ensemble to the White Bird In A Blizzard New York screening. The only problem with this look was she wore a thick black headband that was more distracting than anything, and it took away from the sleekness of the outfit.

by Tatiana Toomer

Get inspired with fresh outfit ideas by taking cues from stylish stars who take fashion to a new level.

Color and texture are two major things to keep in mind when choosing the perfect outfit. Crimson red is a power color and sure to make a bold statement.Selena Gomez, Dakota Fanning, and Michelle Monaghan were ladies in red this week. Gomez’s Dior mini dress with cap-toe pumps has all the elements of a sexy date night look. It has a plunging neckline, a cinched waist, and is simple in detail. Fanning’s Valentino suede fringed dress with its lightweight and soft texture makes for a fun choice for an outside concert. Fringe continues to be a big hit because it is both edgy and ladylike. Michelle Monaghan’s wool-embroidered tulle dress contrasts heavy and light fabrics, has a high round neck and a full skirt, which makes for chic cocktail attire.

Velvet was popping up all over the fall runways and Lea Michele stuns in this plush fabric at the premiere for American Horror Story: Freak ShowMichele revives the '80s trend with a thigh-high slit and a bustier-style boned bodice, making for a sexy choice for a romantic evening or intimate dinner. It is important not to over accessorize and allow for the richness of the fabric to speak for itself.

A dainty and ultra-feminine look for a brunch or other daytime social events is florals. Fashion has an ongoing love affair with florals because of its subtle appeal and this fall, designers are taking on a darker mood, with deep pinks, creams, and vintage-inspired greens.  Keira Knightley wore a Valentino floral and arabesque-print ankle length dress to the London Film Festival. Tracee Ellis Ross posed in a Duro Olowu dress with a sheer collar. Megan Fox wore a vibrant blue print Marc Jacobs sleeveless top and skirt while attending photocall in Berlin, Germany this week.

by Tatiana Toomer

Fashion savvy celebrities are stepping out in transitional wardrobe pieces that will seamlessly take you from summer to autumn.

A star favorite is the long sleeve mini dress. It is great for cocktail parties or date night, and it’s a polished look that transcends seasons with its modesty. Jada Pinkett Smith strutted in a black Blumarine Fall 2014 at an event to promote her new show Gotham on Fox. Her long sleeve mini dress had a deep v-neckline with gold detailing. Jennifer Lopez really showed off her legs at an American Idol photocall in a blue python Dsquared² Fall 2014 micro-dress.

Long flowy dresses and skirts are getting a lot of love from stars like Adriana Lima, Keira Knightley, Oliva Palmero, and mommy-to-be Kristen Bell.

Dan Stevens also took up the trend at The Guest New York premiere in his grey Thom Sweeney ensemble. There are a variety of ways for men to wear this look including wearing a double-breasted blazers as a separate styled with a relaxed pair of trousers. The key to pulling it off is to make sure the jacket is tailored at the waist and the length should be shorter that a standard suit.

 

The Stylist: Celebrities’ Secret Weapon to Red Carpet Glam

by Tatiana Toomer

ETonline.com

We caught up with celebrity stylist Ashley Sean Thomas at Style PR showroom to gain some insight into the magic of dressing A-list stars.

Thomas has been styling for ten years and has worked with everyone from Iggy Azalea, Brandy, Nicki Minaj and even the Queen B.

“Beyoncé is great…She was much better than I had anticipated in my mind,” he says. “I thought she would be very rigid and cold and standoffish. But she's very warm, receptive. I had a great time with her.”

Styling glamorous red carpet looks is not an easy task, and it takes everything from last minute outfit changes to numerous fittings.

“I think the bigger the carpet, the more the fittings,” he explains. “Oscars,Vanity Fair parties, stuff like that, you can go up to four fittings sometimes. I’ve done up to three for big events like that.”

Stylists have to see the look all the way through to the end and keep their tool kits handy to fix any fashion emergencies.

“You got to have a sewing kit, you’ve got to have double stick tape, you have to have a lent brush, a steamer, because you never know what could get wrinkled on the car ride over,” Thomas explains. “Those are the majors. Those are the essentials.”

A great look is also dependent on cost. “You have to learn how to work with budgets. So, my first question would be, what’s your budget?” the fashion pro reveals.

In the end, a creative mind may be the most important tool to creating an unforgettable fashion moment.

“I think the special thing is creating a team with someone. When you’re connecting with another artist you have to connect on what their look is. What they want, what you want to get out of it and you know, it’s a fusion,” Thomas explains.

 

Halle Berry, Kim Kardashian & Other Stars Show Off Their Legs!

ETonline.com

by Tatiana Toomer 

Gowns with thigh high slits are all the rage on the red carpets. Jennifer Lopez, Halle Berry, Kim Kardashian and so many other starlets have been showing off their gorgeous legs in a sultry yet classy way.

One trick to pulling off this trend is to lengthen your legs by opting for a simple nude heel. A streamlined sandal or pump works better than a strappy or gladiator shoe. Don’t overload with accessories, but try a waist cinching belt to pull the look together.

Lighter fabrics like chiffon or silk give the ideal effortless movement needed for the dress to flow as you walk. Make sure the hemline is at a manageable length to avoid getting your heels stuck on the dress.

High slits can easily go from elegant to daringly racy. For a classier approach, keep it modest on the top with high necklines or sleeves. Not all slits have to be floor-to-thigh high. Try an above the knee dress with a scoop hemline and slight slits on the side for a sportier take on this leggy trend. Take it to the next level by styling with a plunging neckline or a double slit for a bolder look.

 

Selena Gomez, Emma Stone & Sarah Hyland Show Us How to Wear Fall's Newest Trends in Pants

by Tatiana Toomer 

ETonline.com

Sarah Hyland recently hit the red carpet styled in a glamorous pair of wide-leg palazzo pants.  These incredibly comfortable pants have returned to the fashion scene. Experiment with colors but save white for more elegant affairs. High heels or wedges are highly recommended for this style. Your top should be no longer than your waistline or tucked in for a clean look.

Graphic pants are scene stealers with a wide variety of designs and prints that will help you stand out from the crowd. Emma Stone paired her black and white printed crepe pants with a solid black top and rhinestone accented pumps for a laid back chic look. You can also play up the patterns with a printed tee and balance it with a solid blazer.

Punch in with bold colors like Selena Gomez in her all red jumpsuit she wore to a Variety and Women in Film event earlier this month. Jumpsuits will linger around this season so transition them into fall by opting for longer sleeves instead of strapless versions.

Other big trends this season are leather culottes, cropped flared pants, and slouchy trousers.

 

Jessica Alba, Sofia Vergara and Ashley Benson Remix Classic Fashion Styles

by Tatiana Toomer

ETonline.com

This week we witnessed the power of a great color when Jessica Alba hit the red carpet for the LA premiere of her latest film, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, in an electric blue strapless dress. This blue will be a power player in your fall wardrobe and mid length dresses and skirts will be the hem line of the season, so look for pieces that hit right below your calf.

Sofia Vergara's red figure hugging dress with mesh detail gives us reason to revisit this classic trend. Mesh looks best when it's an accent to an outfit and the latticework gives a great peekaboo effect.

Mix up your business attire like Ashley Benson with a short suit. For a more conservative look, pair a blouse with the blazer. Be daring with a crop top under the blazer if you want to be bold like Benson for a night out on the town. Try the trend in matching bright colors or patterns for a fun vibe.

Check out the video to see the stars in these styles and find out who was a #fashionfail this week!

 

Kelly Osbourne & Shay Mitchell Offer Up Their Best Beauty Tips

by Tatiana Toomer 

ETonline.com

Fashion and beauty trendsetters like Kelly Osbourne, Shay Mitchell, Jeannie Mai, and Aimee Song opened up to us at the 3rd Annual BeautyCon Los Angeles about their hair secrets, go to makeup looks, and the fashion trends they love and hate.

Kelly Osbourne just announced she is launching her first contemporary fashion line, Stories by Kelly Osbourne in September, and she expressed to us how important the project is to her.

“This is something I've been working on for a very long time. I've never worked harder on any project in my life…This is my everything,” she says.

And when it comes to trends, Osbourne creates her own path.

“I don't follow trends and I feel people should wear whatever makes them feel beautiful, but they're certain things I don't wear," the Fashion Police star admits.  "I do think that the Native American theme when you're not Native American should stop, because clearly that's insulting to a lot of people.”

This fall season is sure to bring in a slew of new trends, but there is one style TV personality Jeannie Mai wants to leave behind.

“I don't love platform sneakers anymore. And I was really excited about them too, because they were so cute, but now I feel like they're a little done,” she explains.

One thing that never goes out of style is healthy hair. Fashion blogger Aimee Song reveals how she maintains her silky locks.

“The trick is coconut oil. Being on shoots all the time and doing my hair all the time it does dry out easily, so sometimes I do like a coconut oil mask," she says. "Find a jar of coconut oil and then put it on your hair.”

When you only have a few minutes to do your makeup, take a cue from Pretty Little Liars star Shay Mitchell and keep it simple.

“I have a tinted moisturizer that has SPF in it, that I’m a huge fan of, and it acts as a foundation too, so I throw that on, a little bit of lip gloss and you're good to go. Less is best, especially in the summer,” she explains.

Get a leg up on your fall fashion wardrobe by checking out the latest styles the stars are wearing.

Plaid is a fall wardrobe must-have and you can expect to see this tartan trend on a lot of different items from belted coats, knee-length skirts, baby doll tops, and even handbags. Megan Good sported a plaid pencil skirt earlier this week, while Beyoncé went for men-inspired red and white plaid trousers. You can try the street look like Ellie Goulding did on her Instagram post, and tie a plaid flannel shirt around your waist for a more casual outfit. From preppy to grunge, there are tons of ways to dress up or dress down the checkered style.

Lace was a big hit last year and it’s back again. Shay Mitchell, Jennifer Lopez, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley are just a few of the stars we are gushing over their styling of lace dresses. The fabric is seductive, yet elegant and makes for a great accent or main attraction.  Lace detailing also covers nicely over a classic pump or clutch.

Footwear adds the finishing touch to any outfit, so spice up your boot collection with styles that have cool designs and interesting textures. Another great shoe style to rock out in are oxfords. They come in heels or flats and are ladylike menswear for your feet. Rachael Zoe recently shared her latest design of oxford shoes this week that have a low heel and a silver cap toe, which would look great with any office look.

by Tatiana Toomer 

ETonline.com

Steal some maternity style secrets from Kourtney Kardashian, Zoe Saldana and other pregnant starlets who have perfected the art of dressing the baby bump.

First, determine what you want to accentuate. If you want to draw attention away from your baby bump, try a loose-fitted mini dress like Kourtney Kardashian to show off your legs. You can also keep your midsection hidden, like Zoe Saldana and Mila Kunis, in dark colored shift dresses that drape lightly over your bump. Empire waist dresses are also a good alternative. They have an elegant and relaxed look.

Put your baby bump on display with stretchy tunics like Christina Aguilera or figure hugging dresses like Lake Bell. For the carefree mommy-to-be, bare all in a bikini like Stacey Kiebler and Kelly Rowland.

The key to maternity style is comfort and infusing your everyday style into your maternity wardrobe. Don’t be afraid to wear the latest trends, just adjust them to your body and what you feel comfortable in. When all else fails, just throw on your favorite basics and accessorize.

Celebrities are loving easy summer hairstyles and a bold accessory trend this week.

Vanessa Hudgens recently got rid of her long locks and is now going for a simpler shorter hairstyle. Her new blunt cut creates body and adds dimension to her hair.  When styling with a short hair-do it's best to keep your ends trimmed on a regular basis to keep the look fresh.

A tight ponytail is a versatile summer hairstyle and it effortlessly looks sleek and sophisticated. Chrissy Teigen, Mel B, Lucy Hale and Rita Ora's snapped photos of their hair slicked back this week. Use a flat iron to get your hair stick straight and a smoothing serum to add shine. A light hairspray will help with any flyaways and won't make your hair stiff. 

Elevate an ordinary dress with a chunky necklace like what Ashley Tisdale wore while promoting her new show Young & Hungry this week. A chunky necklace also adds a bit of glam to any button up or plain t-shirt. The bigger and bolder your necklace is, the more subdued your outfit can be.

Vanessa Hudgens, Chanel Iman, Lea Michele and Kaley Cuoco are just a few of the sexy celebs who are sporting the latest swimwear trends.

The string bikini is a classic style that creates a high impact look. Lauren Conrad, Audrina Patridge, and Vanessa Hudgens give us great examples of how to wear this flirty style.

by Tatiana Toomer  

ETonline.com

A fun and flirty trend that we've been seeing is fringe. Bradi Cyrus' leather jacket with chic tassels is a great way to update this wardrobe staple because it adds a nice Bohemian vibe.  Alexa Chung's cover up can be styled with a variety outfits. If you're hesitant about looking too western or like you just left a music festival, try accessories with subtle fringe details, like on a handbag or pair of sandals.  This trend can be casual or dressy and can transcend seasons, so expect to see more fringe through the fall.

The World Cup is a hot topic of discussion at the moment and some of the world's sexiest supermodels showed off their soccer pride with athletic tees. At the next world cup viewing party take a cue from Adriana Lima or Alessandra Ambrosio and find a sporty tee that matches the colors of your favorite team and pair them denim shorts or jeans.

Celebs love strutting in new pairs of shoes and they showed off some great styles for the season. The peep toe and the pointy shoes are great to rock out with your summer styles, because they're classy enough to wear at the office and will elevate your more casual outfits. The strappy summer bootie is a sexy spin on the classic boot. They are perfect for a night out and pairs nicely with a dress or skirt.

The hot color of the season is proving to be fuchsia pink as stars such as Jessica Simpson, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Beyoncé were snapped wearing this power color. Style your fuchsia with minimal jewelry and sleek hair for an easy look. Fuchsia also makes for a fun lip color or on accessories like a handbag.

The hairstyle trend of the week is bangs. Jessica Chastain and Kat Dennings showed off their new bangs and proved that switching up your hairstyle is a great way to spruce up your look. A good tip to note is that bangs are easier to style when they’re wet, so don’t let them air dry before you begin. A round brush or a paddle brush are great styling tools to use whether you want your bangs straight across or swept to the side. Although bangs can be a little high-maintenance, a clean cut will have you looking chic and fresh.

Vanessa Hudgens and Drew Barrymore show us how to wear the perfect summer accessory, the sun hat.  Try the classic straw hat with a fabric band like these ladies or mix it up an over-sized fedora or the classy floppy wide-brim hat.

The classic combination is simple yet sophisticated, and will stay on trend well into summer so have some fun with it.

Floral prints are always fresh and feminine, and Lauren Conrad wears a garden of delight with a black dress printed with blooms. Get inspired by Beth Behrs' two-piece ensemble and pair your floral bottom with a basic neutral colored top. For a bolder look, try mixing it up by pairing one floral with another or add eye-catching accessories like Beyoncé.

Rihanna was a head turner at the CFDA Fashion Awards as she accepted her style icon award. Her custom Adam Selman fishnet dress, gloves, and headscarf were embellished with over 216,000 Swarovski crystals. Rihanna is a trend all on her own and we love how she continuously raises the bar with every outfit.

 

Our Favorite Celeb Fashion Trends of the Week

One of my favorite seasons to dress for is definitely summer! So here are a few of my favorite looks this week that the stars are sharing.

Bold prints and bright prints are definitely on trend this season. Nicki Minaj, Busy Phillips, and Katie Lowes show us how to have some fun with this trend. Print mixing may be one of the more difficult styles to pull off, but it can breathe new life into your outfits.  Vivid colors that are in style right now are purple, blue, orange, and bright yellow.

Rompers are a summer essential because they look chic and are so easy to wear. Lea Michele gives us a great example of how to dress up this look by pairing it with pumps. For a more casual style, pair your romper with ankle strap sandals.

Chrissy Teigen and Miley Cyrus glammed it up in their photos. When dressing for a special occasion, create a more elegant look by applying softer make-up.

Rita Ora and Christina Milian give us some inspiration on how to pull off the crop top trend. This style has exploded this season and doesn't seem to be going anywhere. Crop tops are so much fun to wear and you don't need to show too much skin. For a more modest look, pair them with a high-waisted skirt or high-waisted shorts.
