L’Oreal Paris Collection Exclusive Pure Reds Campaign

L'Oreal Paris Collection Exclusive Pure Reds campaign

Blake Lively, Zoe Saldana, Jane Fonda, Laetitia Casta, Julianne Moore, Liya Kebede, Freida Pinto, Eva Longoria, Natasha Poly and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan star in the latest L’Oreal Paris Collection Exclusive Pure Reds campaign, which was shot by Norman Jean Roy.

Each of the ambassadors are dressed in white (Zoe and Liya in Elie Saab Spring 2014) with a bold red lip, but the twist is they are not all wearing the same shade.

The red lip shades were inspired by their skin tones and even their hair colour to create the perfect match.

L’Oreal is hoping to diminish the fear of choosing such a bold lip colour with the new collection.

L’Oreal make-up artist Lynsey Alexander said, “The correct red should leave you feeling empowered, confident, and sexy all at once whilst ultimately being something you choose to wear and not something that wears you. There is most definitely a perfect red for everyone and if you apply one tone and feel conscious and aware of it then it’s not the one for you.”

All of our favourite L’Oreal girls appear in the ad, with the exception of new girl Kirsten Dunst, Cheryl Cole and Sonam Kapoor.

A few of the shades are below. I’m having a strong pull towards Laetitia’s deep rouge.

Blake Lively In Rag & Bone – Out In New York City

Blake Lively In Rag & Bone - Out In New York City

Blake Lively was spotted out and about running errands in New York City on Wednesday (June 4).

Working a low-key black and white look, the actress donned a Rag & Bone Spring 2014 jumpsuit with a white striped top.

This city-slick jumpsuit and urban dungarees hybrid with a box silhouette cut in mannish proportions features buttery leather straps for an edgy twist.

Blake styled her daytime-chic look with a black Givenchy ‘Pandora’ bag and black and white brogues to amp up the mannish vibe.

Overalls are having a stylish renaissance, as other celebs such as Emma Watson, Gwen Stefani and Hilary Duff have also been spotted wearing this versatile piece.

Will you be jumping on this overall trend?

Blake Lively In Gucci – Chime for Change One-Year Anniversary Event

Blake Lively In Gucci - Chime for Change One-Year Anniversary Even

Blake Lively attended an event to celebrate the one-year anniversary of Chime for Change hosted by Gucci Creative Director Frida Giannini at the Gucci Fifth Avenue boutique on Tuesday (June 3) in New York City.

Once again I’m looking at Blake and wondering what happened, and that’s hard for me to say considering she’s my girl.

This Gucci Fall 2014 dress is all wrong for her, feeling a tad twee and too much up front.

Let’s start with the colour. I’m not a fan of this shade of mustard against her skin tone, nor am I a fan of the leather trims.

The keyhole. I know this will be the deal breaker for most (especially those who often ask Blake to pick boobs or legs, and here she opted for both), and I would agree.

And don’t even get me started on the creases.

The only things I would save from this look are the gold glitter Christian Louboutin pumps and her Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

Blake Lively In Michael Kors – 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards

Blake Lively In Michael Kors  - 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards

Blake Lively attended the 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards held at Alice Tully Hall, Lincoln Center on Monday (June 2) in New York City.

As one of the major players at this event, I was somewhat disappointed by her look.

Her Michael Kors Resort 2015 sequinned dress with a scalloped hemline doesn’t quite live up to the glamour of the event.

The barbarella ‘do and clunky Casadei pink suede pumps also get a resounding thumbs down from me, as the styling feels a bit too cheesy for my liking.

It’s like her mojo was left on the red carpet at Cannes.

Lorraine Schwartz diamond hoops and an armful of Lorraine Schwartz natural wood and diamond bangles completed her look.
