On The ‘Kroll Show’ Set With Katy Perry In Hervé Léger By Max Azria

On The 'Kroll Show' Set With Katy Perry In Hervé Léger By Max Azria

Katy Perry brought her inner ‘prints-cess’ to the set of the sketch comedy series, the ‘Kroll Show,’ in Hollywood, California on Tuesday.

The singer kept most of her quirk factor under wraps on this occasion, wearing a Hervé Léger by Max Azria Fall 2013 two-piece, body-con ensemble in a monochromatic, ocelot-like pattern.

Just showing a trendy sliver of midriff, she did flash a bit more skin by unzipping the long-sleeve top and skipping the matching leggings worn under the high-waisted pencil skirt on the runway.

With her black-ankle wrap sandals and glamorous sunglasses, it was a chic entrance for Katy, although it did give me a slight case of déjà vu. You may remember she flaunted a similar, but far more skin-baring, Hervé Léger by Max Azria silhouette to the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards earlier this year.

Rihanna In Chanel & Azzedine Alaia – Out In Paris

Rihanna In Chanel & Alaia

While in Paris, France, Rihanna didn’t shirk her boundaries-pushing sartorial sensibility. Always the hair chameleon, she showed off a honey hue with the requisite dark roots, as she trotted out two daring, rebellious looks that no doubt kept the City of Light on its toes.

L’Avenue Restaurant: On Tuesday, the Barbadian beauty had a top-to-toe Chanel moment—one that Coco Chanel herself could probably never have fathomed—at the prestigious eatery. Rather appropriately, she also toured Coco’s Parisian apartment. The bandeau top, high-waisted tennis skirt and blazer oozed of RiRi’s unique style. To the all-white ensemble, she added a hodgepodge of double Cs, including lapel brooches, a chain necklace, a major cuff, and funky round sunnies. The clunky, gold creeper sneakers from Chanel’s Resort 2013 collection finished out the look. It was glam-grunge at its finest, but was it too much to swallow?

Azzedine Alaïa Dinner: The songstress continued her rambunctious style, this time in an all-out Azzedine Alaïa look at a dinner for the designer. The skintight, velvet maroon catsuit brought RiRi’s curves to the party, and the deep V-neck showed off her Isis tattoo. She indulged in massive accessories, from her pile of door-knocker, tasseled necklaces to a wild python clutch that was large and in charge. More impact came with black suede circle sandals and a matte oxblood lip. After all, ‘over-the-top’ has never been part of Rihanna’s vocabulary.

Menswear Midweek Round Up

Menswear Round up 5 June 2013

While the girls have been keeping up appearances at this week’s stylish soirees—from the CFDA Fashion Awards to Glamour Women of the Year Awards—a group of guys have also been holding their own on the red carpet.

Seth Rogen: This funny man wasn’t pulling any jokes with his fashion at the ‘This Is The End’ Los Angeles premiere at Regency Village Theatre on Monday. He stood out in a Calvin Klein light-blue, cotton wool two-button notch lapel suit, white dress shirt and blue striped tie from the Spring 2013 Calvin Klein Collection, designed by Italo Zucchelli. The ombre-effect frames of his glasses were his best accessory.

Israel Broussard: The up-and-coming actor made sure Emma Watson and his other pretty co-stars didn’t get all the attention at ‘The Bling Ring’ Los Angeles premiere on Tuesday at Directors Guild of America. He suited up in a Dior Homme navy wool two-button peak lapel suit, black cotton button-down shirt and black satin tie. The pants seemed a bit bunchy and baggy, but from the waist up, this was sleek enough, even with the quiff and all that hairspray.

Daniel Radcliffe: ‘Man of the Year’ winner at the Glamour Women of the Year Awards 2013 at London’s Berkeley Square Gardens on Tuesday, the actor dressed to impress in a Prada black, two-button mohair suit, paired with a white popeline shirt, a blue and black printed silk-twill tie and black brushed leather lace-up shoes. It’s hard to argue with this handsome ensemble—especially with that ‘Glamour-ous’ accessory.

Paul Rudd: Joining Seth at the ‘This Is The End’ Los Angeles premiere, Paul put on an Ermenegildo Zegna navy suit. Going for a relaxed, cool-kid look, he skipped the tie, unbuttoned his collar, and let his hair down.

Miranda Cosgrove In Paule Ka – ‘Despicable Me 2’ Sydney Premiere

Miranda Kerr In Paule Ka - 'Despicable Me 2' Sydney Premiere

Miranda Cosgrove took to the red carpet at the ‘Despicable Me 2’ premiere at Event Cinemas Bondi Junction in Sydney, Australia on Wednesday.

The young actress balanced a sweet and sassy look in a Paule Ka Black Carpet 2013 Collection dress.

The cutout LBD featured a crystal-encrusted bib neckline. At the back, a giant bow juxtaposed the bling, which ensured this super-short frock had plenty to offer both coming and going.

The full effect of these statement details was compromised a bit by Miranda’s long, wavy locks. But her hair and her dewy pink lippie did impart an appropriate youthfulness to this sexy dress.

She wins points for wearing fun magenta heels, as opposed to the standard issue black pumps.

The Art of Contouring Your Cheeks

Media Room At "Chime For Change: The Sound Of Change Live" ConcertNot all of us were blessed with supermodel cheekbones, but thanks to a little thing called contouring, you can totally fake it!

The endlessly gorgeous Freido Pinto is the perfect example for a little cheek contouring how-to. Sure, she has great cheekbones to begin with, but at the Chime For Change concert this weekend, she used makeup to accentuate them even more.

Contouring your cheeks should be done after you apply your foundation, concealer and eye makeup. It’s the final step of your makeup routine.

While you can use either cream or powder bronzer for contouring, I have found that a powder is easier to control and blend, so it’s best as you are learning the technique.

Chose a bronzer that is two shades darker than your natural skin colour, and also, be sure to use a non-shimmer bronzer, since the shimmer doesn’t blend well and makes the bronzer too obvious in the hollows of your cheeks. I love Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder, and the Bobbi Brown Bronzing Brush is the perfect applicator.

To find the correct place to apply the bronzer, make a fish face, and you’ll see that angled indentation below your cheek. Then follow that ‘line’ with the bronzer, starting by your ear and swiping down toward your chin.

After applying the bronzer (Start lightly! You can apply more if you need.) to both cheeks, then use a kabuki brush like Make Up For Ever HD Kabuki Brush to buff it and blend it in. You want the definition, but not the noticeable line.

Finally, apply blush to the apples of your cheeks. Laura Mercier Second Skin Cheek Colour gives a light wash of colour (no one wants clown cheeks), and Buxom True Hue Blush Brush helps control the application (you want to make sure you don’t get any blush onto your contouring line). Remember never use the same brush for bronzer and blush, as the colours will get muddied!

The result will be a more defined cheekbone and a more dramatic look that you’re sure to love.

Petra Nemcova In Salvatore Ferragamo – Prague’s Fashion Night Out

Petra Nemcova In Salvatore Ferragamo – Prague’s Fashion Night Out

The always stunning Petra Nemcova looked every bit the supermodel at the S. Ferragamo Creations boutique at Prague’s First Annual Fashion Night Out last week Thursday.

The model wore head-to-toe Ferragamo, including a sleeveless gold beaded dress with an asymmetrical hemline from the Spring 2013 collection and open-toe over-the-knee boots from the same collection.

She kept styling minimal, with just a few delicate gold bracelets, basic makeup and her killer head of hair worn in loose waves.

This is one of those examples of a perfect model look. Effortless and stunning.
