Steal the Look: Gwyneth Paltrow at Los Angeles premiere of Mortdecai

Steal the Look: Gwyneth Paltrow at Los Angeles premiere of Mortdecai

The ageless Gwyneth Paltrow was styled by celebrity stylist David Babaii for the Los Angeles premiere of Mortdecai. The weather was uncharacteristically cold but humid for a winter LA night, so David used John Frieda Frizz Ease KeraFLEX Flexible Hold Hairspray to keep Gwyneth’s hair looking smooth and flawless all night. “It’s a dry spray—not wet or crunchy—so it maintained her style but always appeared effortless,” he explained. The look was clean and California – pretty classic for  Gwyneth. First, Babaii sectioned hair into pieces and parted hair in the center. Next, he blowdried hair bone straight with a round brush for a smooth, sleek finish.   He finished by spritzing new John Frieda Frizz Ease KeraFLEX Flexible Hold Hairspray and...

Steal the Look: Emily Blunt at the Golden Globes

Steal the Look: Emily Blunt at the Golden Globes

Tonight for the Golden Globes, Emily Blunt’s look was created makeup artist Jenn Streicher for Kiehl’s and Dior Beauty. “Emily is wearing a gorgeous white Michael Kors dress with to-die-for jewels by Lorraine Schwartz – both the dress and jewels were custom made just for Emily. I can’t remember the last time Emily wore white on the red carpet! Because she just returned from a sunny get-away, her skin was perfectly bronzed for a white gown. And because we decided to have her hair loosely back I wanted her makeup to be soft and ethereal and just a pop of color on the lips to bring out the jewels,” says Streicher. “The first and most important step is prepping the skin. I started with Kiehls’ Ultra Facial Cream and Creamy Eye Treatment...

Get the Look: Naomi Watts at the Golden Globes

Get the Look:  Naomi Watts at the Golden Globes

And, with a whisper (or maybe a loud anvil to our skulls), red carpet award season has begun. Tonight for the Golden Globes, Naomi Watts’ look was ceated by Cervando for Moroccanoil. “I created chic, modern, slightly-retro waves to perfectly compliment Naomi’s personality and style. I loved that the soft, face-framing look felt modern and effortless,” says  Cervando. Here’s how to steal the look: Beginning with damp hair, use fingers to rake a golf ball-sized amount of Moroccanoil Volumizing Mousse from root to tip, throughout the entire head. Next, use a comb to distribute the product evenly through hair. Apply Moroccanoil Root Boost throughout the entire head to create a foundation for volume and texture. Then use a comb to create a deep...

This week in my world (and some new articles!)

This week in my world (and some new articles!)

A Little Alytude was my first baby — eight years ago! — and sometimes I worry I have been giving it decreased attention as I get busier and busier with new projects! As we’re counting down to (yet another!) birthday, I’m having a lot of my seasonal existentialism. It’s hard to see yourself getting older and so many areas of your life are not where you want them to be. But it has been a pretty exciting few months, both travel- and work- wise, and this week alone has seen some fun developments. This crazy thing happened, where I was featured on the Reuters billboard in Times Square: A few days ago, one of my favorite brands, Physicians Formula featured a glamour go-to tip that I think all of my fair-skinned buddies can appreciate as...
