Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Always one to make a statement, award-winner singer, Lorde sported a beautifully bold waved hairstyle at MTV Video Music Awards (August 24th).

Celebrity hairstylist, Andy LeCompte drew inspiration from Jerry Hall’s signature waved tresses and developed a look that perfectly topped off Lorde’s look of the evening.

It was essential that the hairstyle look elegant and touchable while retaining its sheen long after its initial styling. This touchable and glamorous hairstyle can easily be recreated by following these simple tips:

Prep: Staring with clean, freshly washed hair was a must. Andy washed and conditioned Lorde’s hair using Wella Professionals Brilliance Shampoo and Conditioner.

Styling (blowout): Once hair was thoroughly washed, Andy prepped her hair with Wella Professionals LuxeOil Keratin Boost Leave In Conditioning Spray. He applied the product while the hair was still damp to insure the perfect base for heat styling. He followed by blow drying the hair using a large ceramic brush to create natural and smooth volume.

Styling (wave): To create the classic Jerry Hall look, Andy parted Lorde’s hair in a deep side part and curled the hair with an 1 ½ inch ceramic curling iron. Starting from the base all the way to the crown of the hair, Andy created long loose waves.

Setting: To get that impeccable shine, he applied 2-3 pumps of Wella Professionals LuxeOil Reconstructive Elixir and warmed it up between his palms. He gently ran the product through the curls to neatly define the waves and lock in the sheen.

Finish: Andy added a final finishing touch to the hair by lightly misting the waves with Wella Professionals Stay Essential Finishing Spray. Not only does this tame any pesky flyaways but hair looks healthy and touchable long after the first spay.

Try your hand at this chic hairstyle and you’ll surely fell like a royal all evening.

Robin Wright In Ralph Lauren - 2014 Emmy Awards

Robin Wright attended the 2014 Emmy Awards held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on Monday (August 25) in Los Angeles, California.

For me, the ‘House of Cards’ actress was one of the best dressed at the event despite not opting for an expected gown.

Looking very chic in a backless custom made Ralph Lauren Collection cream tuxedo-inspired jumpsuit, she decided to let her bold outfit do the talking by keeping her accessories to a minimum and slicking back her hair.

'Orange is the New Black' @ The 2014 Emmy Awards

The ‘Orange is the New Black’ cast seemed to dominate the red carpet at the 2014 Emmy Awards on Monday evening (August 25). We’ve seen Laura Prepon, Taylor Schilling and Laverne Cox; now here’s a look at how the others look so very good when not wearing their prison garb.

Uzo Aduba: The most jaw-dropping of them all was Uzo, who stunned wearing a breathtaking Christian Siriano custom lipstick-red silk gown with cascading organza back flounces which place goosebumps on my goosebumps. Letting the gown do all the work, she styled the look with Fred Leighton gold jewels, sweeping her hair up into a neat bun. I would only remove the cuff, but otherwise: perfection.

Alysia Reiner: The actress wore an Alexander McQueen pretty pink gown with draped hips and a decadent arrangement of pearly beads and rhinestones on the front. A Jimmy Choo ‘Sweetie’ ombre clutch, silver Jimmy Choo shoes and Sidney Garber jewels accessorized the look. Only the limp hair is throwing me off this look.

Teyonah Parris In Christian Siriano - 2014 Emmy Awards

Teyonah Parris blew me away on the red carpet at the 2014 Emmy Awards held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on Monday (August 25) in Los Angeles, California, and I’m sure she will do the same to you.

The ‘Mad Men’ actress has always had a love for colour and print, and this Christian Siriano lime silk overlay gown with a striped bodice from the Resort 2015 collection has it ALL.

Colour, personality, vibrancy and a fun-loving spirit that will etch this look in my memory forever.

Styled with a Carrera y Carrera ring, drop earrings, a topknot and that infectious smile, she was easily of my favourites on this red carpet.

What a breath of fresh air. I’m gonna sit back and soak this one in.

66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards - ArrivalsCelebrity Makeup Artist Jake Bailey created Natalie Dormer’s beauty look for the 2014 Emmy Awards.

Talking about his beauty inspiration, Jake said “The focus of Natalie’s look was most definitely her eyes. She has such gorgeous blue almond-shaped eyes and I really wanted to showcase them.”

Here’s how to get the look.

When doing this much eye makeup, Jake always begins with the eyes so that any eyeshadow that falls on the face during application can be cleaned up afterwards, before applying foundation or blush.

He began by lining her top lash line with Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeliner in Perversion and blending it softly with his fingertip. Then he applied a warm shimmery brown shade, Lancome Color Design Shadow in Pose, all over her lids and into the crease. He lined her lower lash line with Urban Decay’s 24/7 liner in Smog, blending it with his fingertip to soften. Then he applied a pair of mink lashes from Velour called ‘Are Those Real?’ and coated them with Urban Decay Mascara in Perversion.

Once the eyes were finished, Jake buffed a small amount of Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation in Creamy Vanilla over her skin using a soft flat-tipped kabuki brush.

Warming her cheeks using a combo of equal parts Le Blush Crème de Chanel blush in Affinite and NARS Luminizer in Copacabana, he mixed the two on the back of his hand to create a custom glowy blush.

He then dusted her face with a touch of Covergirl Clean Pressed Powder in Ivory. Once powdered he used NARS Contour Blush in Olympia to accentuate her cheekbones by blending a small amount into the hollows of her cheeks.

Jake finished the look by lining her lips with Urban Decay 24/7 lip liner in Naked and topping it with L’Oreal Color Caresse Wet Shine Stain in Pink Perseverance.
