Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Feeling blue?

If it’s on your nails then you are right in step with some of the hottest Hollywood ladies.

Blue nails were one of the top trends to go down the Fall 2012 runway seen at Erdem and Oscar de la Renta.

Celebs have already embraced it with various shades of cerulean hitting the red carpet all summer long.

From Marion Cotillard’s pale blue on both fingers and toes at ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ New York premiere to robin’s egg on both Taylor Swift at the ‘Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards’ and Emma Stone at the ‘Met Gala’, to slate blue on Ginnifer Goodwin at the ‘Critics Choice Awards’, these ladies aren’t afraid to be bold in their nail colour choices.

If you’re feeling a little unsure of the blues or it’s simply not workplace appropriate, try it on your next pedicure.

Toes are an easy place to switch it up and embrace a trendy colour. A pale shade will complement your summer tan while a deep shade will really stand out against pale skin. All of them will look smashing with the sandals of summer and transition well into fall.

Are you ready to try this blue look?

Grab a glorious azure shade like Koliary from this season’s most talked about nail collab, Thakoon for NARS, or Sally Hansen’s Complete Salon Manicure in Calypso Blue. OPI’s ‘I Don’t Give a Rotterdam’, seen on Ginnifer, gives a muted, moody look, or go deep with Nails Inc Belgrave Place. If it’s pale you want, look for the upcoming, and highly anticipated Skyline from Chanel as well as Essie’s Barbados Blue for icy but hot digits.

Anne Hathaway is talented, smart, stylish and gorgeous, so it’s no surprise that many of you wanted tips on how to recreate her look.

Chanel makeup artist Kate Lee created what she calls a “timeless” look for Anne Hathaway at New York’s The Dark Knight Rises premiere, topped off by a rosy lip and a bold brow.

Skincare:
Lee started out by prepping the skin with Chanel Hydra Beauty Serum, quickly following with an oil-free primer to lock in the moisture.

Foundation:
Lee used two foundations: Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Makeup SPF 15 as a light veil around the periphery and then for the areas where she wanted a little more coverage, she used Chanel Perfection Lumiere Long Wear Fluid Makeup SPF 10, which was applied with a nylon brush and blended out with a Beauty Blender sponge.

Blush:
Chanel Powder Blush in Espiegle gave cheeks the perfect flush.

Eye Shadow:
Anne’s lids were given a gentle wash of color with a soft vanilla shadow, and the brow bone was highlighted with Chanel Soft Touch Eyeshadow in Ivory.

Eyeliner:
The lash line was traced with a small brush and Lee used black cake liner.

Mascara:
The lashes were curled with the Chanel Precision Eyelash Curler, and given two generous coats of Chanel Inimitable Waterproof Mascara top and bottom. I then added a few soft faux lashes on the top lash for fullness.

Brows:
Lee used Anastasias Brow Gel to set the brows in place then feathered in a little to perfect their shape.

Lips:
Anne’s pretty lip came from Chanel Rouge Coco Lip Colour in Rivoli, used as a stain, blotting and applying until she got the desired intensity. Lee then added a dab of Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream to add moisture. The result was a beautiful rosy hue.

Alyson Hannigan proudly showed off her baby bump at the 2012 People’s Choice Awards held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live this evening.

The ‘How I Met Your Mother’ star chose a red Alice + Olivia sheath with rouge and metallic beading that gives the dress a flapper-esque vibe.

Her accessories included snakeskin peep-toe pumps and small silver hoop earrings.

A slightly teased up-do, a glossy lip and subtle kohl-rimmed eyes completed the chic maternity look.

Kristen Bell attended the 2012 People’s Choice Awards, which was held at L.A.’s Nokia Theater this evening.

Like Ashley Greene, the blond actress also opted for leather and lace wearing a red Valentino Spring 2012 dress with a leather skirt and lace embroidered sheer yoke.

The one part sweet, one part edgy red dress was paired Christian Louboutin nude pumps with gold toe-caps.

Although the dress was cute I would’ve preferred a topknot.

Kristen sported wavy locks that looked a tad ungroomed.

As winter quickly approaches, celebs know that it’s all about the right coat.

However, a basic trench isn’t going to cut it.

Instead, fashionistas are all about coloured leather coats. While leather may not be the warmest fabric, it sure does look super chic.

The piece may have a luxe look, but it’s also very versatile. So, it comes as no surprise that this trend has been seen on and off the red carpet.

Since this isn’t your typical black coat, avoid looking too costumey by not wearing matching coloured heels à la Lady Gaga. Instead, try black boots like Rachel Zoe.

You can also take a cue from Blake Lively and step foot into the wild side by teaming it with snakeskin heels.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley kept her look simple with a rock n’ roll edge by adding leather pants.

It’s not that ease to find coloured leather coats, but we found these three.
