Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Celebrity hair stylist Mark Townsend shares his styling tips for Lea Michele’s naturally wavy tresses which she sported at the 2012 Teen Choice Awards yesterday.

“For the Teen Choice Awards, I wanted Lea to look like a classic, sun-kissed California girl. I loved her Atelier Versace dress and wanted to show how a cool, young woman wears couture, so I kept her hair pretty natural with loads of texture.”

“I started by applying a large amount of Dove Style+Care Nourishing Curls Whipped Cream Mousse to Lea’s damp hair, and rough dried her hair with my hands and with the diffuser attachment on my T3 Blowdryer.”

“After the hair was dry, I re-applied a large dollop of the Mousse and scrunched it in again, creating really great texture. Next, I took 4-inch sections of hair and sprayed Dove Style+Care Thermal Replenishment Spray on the hair, then loosely wrapped the hair around a 1 1/2-inch curling iron for a few seconds to give the hair a loose wave.”

“After the hair was waved, I sprayed Oribe Après Beach Spray all over while scrunching the hair with my hands to create more texture. To keep her hair in place without weighing it down, I finished with Dove Style+Care Strength & Shine Flexible Hold Hairspray all over.”

Before the 2012 Teen Choice Awards, Lea Michele hosted the ‘Valspar Hands For Habitat Unveiling’ at the Hearst Tower in New York City on Friday afternoon looking pretty in vibrant blue.

Dressed in a floral silk organza embroidered Oscar de la Renta Resort 2013 dress, the ‘Glee’ actress shows that she can do cutesy as well as sultry on the red carpet.

Her blue mini dress was paired with Versace black pumps for a sophisticated touch for her event-appropriate look.

Lea kept the rest of her look simple with minimal makeup, glossy straight locks and a selection of rings.

As much as I love this look, I’m really missing a waist nipping belt. It would’ve been the perfect finishing touch.

Do you agree?

Lea Michele hit the pink carpet in Universal City, California, on Sunday night for the 2012 Teen Choice Awards.

The ‘Glee’ star donned one of the night’s sexiest looks, wearing a strapless silver Atelier Versace Spring 2012 textured mini dress with gold metallic peplum details.

Exaggerated detailing along the hips accentuate Lea’s petite figure.

Her silver Versace pumps, however, feel a bit too heavy for the feminine dress. Strappy sandals would have been much preferred.

Sun-kissed ombre waves and a fresh-faced glow add a youthful touch.

Love, loathe or too much for the Teen Choice Awards?

Lea Michele joined the discussion panel for ‘Glee’ during Comic-Con 2012 on Saturday in San Diego, California.

The actress wore a leather lapel Stella & Jamie black tweed jacket and a matching skirt to which she added a Bec & Bridge cream pointelle bodysuit.

I love everything about this look. It’s young, fresh, chic yet not too formal for the event.

The addition of red Nicholas Kirkwood ankle-strap platform pumps provide a perfect colour pop to this look.

At one time we struggled to like Lea’s bangs, but on this occasion her highlighted long wavy locks suit her face.

Opting to highlight her eyes, Lea completed her look with a nude lip colour.

‘Glee’ stars Cory Monteith and Lea Michele attended the Atelier Versace Fall 2012 fashion show at the Ritz-Carlton in Paris, France, on Sunday evening.
The couple both wore Versace threads.

Cory Monteith wore a navy two-button peak lapel Versace suit completed by a baroque-printed blue shirt and a navy tie, which was similar to the look Hayden Christensen had worn during Milan menswear fashion week.

Lea looked gorgeous wearing a Versace Spring 2012 orange dress with grey leather inserts on the hips which were complemented with grey suede Versace mirrored heel pumps.

Sleek straight locks, a rose-pink lip colour and a black Versace clutch completed her look.

I wish the loved-up star had faced the camera front-on so we could’ve seen more of her dress.

Lea Michele made a guest appearance on Bethenny Frankel’s talk show, which airs today, where the host brought up the subject of Lea showing a lot more cleavage lately.

Instead of being embarrassed, Lea took it as a compliment and said she has no problem with showing off her boobs.

“They’re all mine!” Lea laughed. “I just don’t know. I think that lately, every day they’re like please, give us a chance. Give us a shot. We’ve always been good to you!”

She also confirmed that she will be returning to ‘Glee’ next season.

Sporting sleek straight ombre locks, the actress wore a sparkling Armani mini dress with a J Brand ‘Morissette’ Tux jacket with asymmetrical lapels.

Dolce & Gabbana pumps completed her look.

You may remember that Rashida Jones has also worn this chic blazer.
