Isabella Rossellini, Lupita Nyong’o, Julia Roberts, Penelope Cruz, Kate Winslet and Lilly Collins attended Lancôme’s 80th Anniversary Party as ambassadors of the brand on Tuesday (July 7) in Paris, France.

Isabella Rossellini: The gorgeous Italian actress suited up in a classic tux adding a feminine touch via her Chanel pearls.

Lupita Nyong’o: The Kenya beauty didn’t get the wear-black memo, opting to stand out in a sparkling silver Prada number.

Julia Roberts: I’m not surprised to see Julia in a Givenchy suit. I love the flirty nature with the shorter length and delicate lace blouse.

Penelope Cruz: The Spanish beauty stood out for me in her Emilio Pucci lace accented gown, even if it does feel a bit dated.

Kate Winslet: Many of you are tired of her go-to fitted frocks, so on this occasion you will be delighted to see her don an Alaia fit and flare design.

Lily Collins: The young actress wore an elaborate Mikael D high-low gown styled with Giuseppe Zanotti heels and Messika jewels. The nude lining is turning me off this look.

Despite the lack of colour there is are some great looks here. My favourites are Isabella and Penelope.

Julia Roberts In Givenchy – 2015 SAG Awards

Julia Roberts In Givenchy - 2015 SAG Awards

Julia Roberts attended the 2015 SAG Awards held on Sunday evening (January 25) at The Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California.

The actress, nominated for ‘The Normal Heart’, wore a tuxedo-inspired black jumpsuit from Givenchy making it the second year in a row she has worn a jumpsuit to the SAG Awards. She accessorized with Tiffany & Co. jewelry.

Considering Julia was recently named the face of Givenchy, I was hoping she would pull out all of the stops. The jumpsuit fits her fairly well. However, the satin detail at the hips feel poorly placed and it’s just generally a bit meh.

I never get tired of that incredible hair and thousand-watt smile but I want to see Julia have a major fashion moment this season.

The Hammer Museum’s 12th Annual ‘Gala In The Garden’

The Hammer Museum's 12th Annual Gala In The Garden

The Hammer Museum’s 12th annual ‘Gala in the Garden’ was held on Saturday (October 11) in Westwood, California in association with Bottega Veneta, where the stars were draped in the Italian brand’s finest pieces.

Dianna Agron: The ‘Glee’ actress continued to showcase her sartorial style wearing a black and nude patterned dress from Bottega Veneta’s Resort 2015 collection. Oozing with elegance and femininity, she styled her dress with the brand’s signature woven clutch. I have found myself hypnotized by Dianna at the moment. Whoever is doing her makeup and making her glow so radiantly is doing a fine job.

January Jones: No surprises that January stood out; she’s never one to blend into the background. The ‘Mad Men’ actress wore an intentionally imperfect vibrant strapless Bottega Veneta patchwork Pre-Fall 2014 dress defined by a hot-pink jacquard, macramé lace, and a metallic coating. Like Dianna, she carried a woven clutch, with Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist’ sandals providing the finishing touches. Needless to say, she was by far my favourite at this event.

Emmy Rossum: Also carrying a Bottega Veneta woven clutch, the ‘Shameless’ actress looked as lovely as ever wearing a Bottega Veneta Pre-Fall 2014 V-neck black and nude gown shimmering with metallic-gold panels. Like Dianna, she’s glowing.

Emmy Awards Beauty Trend Spotting: The New Nude Lip

Emmy Awards Beauty Trend Spotting The New Nude Lip

This isn’t the traditional nude that camouflages your lips, making them unnoticeable. The new nude lips actually accentuate the natural tones of your skin allowing lips to pop in the subtlest way. Take cue from Julia Roberts, Kerry Washington, Lizzy Caplan, and Natalie Dorimer who were amongst the many celebs that flaunted the updated au naturel trend on the red carpet at the 2014 Emmy Awards.

Carole Gonzalez balanced Kerry Washington’s navy smokey eye with an updated nude lip. Neutrogena MoistureSmooth Color Stick in Warm Caramel was used to make her neutral pout pop. The shimmering shade provides sheer wash of color and is ideal for complexions with warm undertones. When choosing a nude it’s important to pay attention to your skin’s undertones.

Los Angeles based celebrity makeup artist, Jake Bailey played up the flesh tones on Natalie Dorimer. Urban Decay 24/7 Glide- On Lip Pencil in Naked was used to line her lips. You can even make more room in your clutch and leave this one at home. This waterproof liner will get you through the entire evening. It also doubles as a primer to prep lips for lipstick or a gloss.

Bailey topped off Dorimer’s look with L’Oreal Colour Caresse Wet Shine Stain in Pink Perseverance. This shade works well on those who have cool undertones and it won’t leave lips feeling dry like other stains.
