Steal the Look: Gina Rodriguez at the Academy Awards

Steal the Look: Gina Rodriguez at the Academy Awards

The stars were out full force last night for the Academy Awards, the biggest red carpet of the award season. Celebrity hairstylist Paul Norton gave Gina Rodriguez a sophisticated and timeless up do for the 2015 Academy Awards. “Gina’s hair is versatile, she can look great with any hairstyle but today we wanted to give her a glamorous look for the Oscars,” said Norton. Here’s how to steal the look: First, Norton prepped damp hair with John Frieda Frizz Ease Beyond Smooth Frizz-Immunity Primer to create a foundation for a frizz-free hairstyle in the not-frizz-friendly LA weather.  After blowing out her hair with a round brush, Norton divided her hair into two sections, from ear to ear, clipping the back part out of the way and set hot rollers to the...

Oscars Recap: Saw, Gushed, Tweeted

Oscars Recap: Saw, Gushed, Tweeted

If you follow me on Twitter, you  may have come across a pretty exciting moment Sunday night. Yes, Perez Hilton, tweeting me — about my thoughts on something Oscars-related. The Oscars being the Super Bowl of my industry, it’s kind of a big deal. This was all part of a red carpet Twitter event on Sunday night where some of my favorite people on (and off) the Internet, including Bryce Gruber and Vera Sweeney, but also PEREZ HILTON partnered with Chobani to give out awards of our own. Seriously. So, I was beside myself just based on the company, but the night ended up being so much  more than that. Joining with my friends, we snarked and applauded our way through the red carpet, sharing insights about the hair, beauty, and entertainment value of...

Steal the Look: Zooey Deschanel at The 2014 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

Steal the Look: Zooey Deschanel at The 2014 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

One of my favorite humans,  Zooey Dechanel was full-on rocking 70’s glam last night’s Vanity Fair Oscar Party. Zooey’s look, which was created by celebrity makeup artist Jorjee Douglass for Elizabeth Arden, was a perfectly pretty spring preview when paired with her floral Dior. “I first prepped the skin with Vbeauté Undercover Agent on Zooey’s face and neck, which gave us a beautiful dewy under glow canvas to work off of,” says Douglass, who then swept Zooey’s skin with Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Perfectly Nude Makeup Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 15 in Linen. EYES “For dramatic depth and color that lasts, I brush Elizabeth Arden’s Pure Finish Cream Eye Shadow in Anchors away across the whole lid and under the...

Steal the Look: Amy Adams at the Academy Awards

Steal the Look: Amy Adams at the Academy Awards

Last night while watching the red carpet of the Academy Awards, I was instantly in love with Amy Adams’ look. A conversation began — when we’re up for the big awards of the evening — such as Amy for best actress in a leading role — does it demand a distinct type of look? Should that actress win, her moment of acceptance will be looked back upon for decades. She needs to be classic, elegant, timelessly beautiful. Amy Adams achieved that last night, celebrity makeup artist Stephen Sollitto created a simple, sophisticated look. “She wore a stunning sapphire blue Gucci gown, modern and clean. Obviously, I am inspired by this color and simply wanted the makeup to be just as sophisticated.” Below, he breaks down the steps he took, and...

Steal the Look: Chrissy Teigen at the Academy Awards

For last night’s Oscars red carpet, Avon Global Celebrity Makeup Artist Lauren Andersen gave the always-gorgeous Chrissy Teigen a bold lip and a soft, romantic face. Her dress was bold, gorgeous and floral, so keeping her face soft complimented the rest of her look perfectly. Here’s how to get the look. First, Lauren groomed Chrissy’s brows with Votre Vu Brow Wax. Next, Lauren applied the soft pink shade (#2) from Avon True Color Eyeshadow Quad in Emerald Cut to Chrissy’s lids and then coated her lashes with Avon Mega Effects Mascara.

Steal the Look: Jenna Dewan-Tatum’s gorgeous Oscars red carpet hair!

Tonight, at the Academy Awards,  CLEAR Scalp & Hair celebrity stylist Jen Atkin (one of my major hair crushes, I won’t lie!), styled the gorgeous Jenna Dewan-Tatum for the red carpet. Want to steal the look? Here’s a step-by-step breakdown! “The Oscars are a great time for my clients to get glammed.  Jenna’s dress had so much detail and texture that I wanted to make sure to show off the collar and neckline.  With the dress being so pretty, I wanted the hair to stay off her face, but to still have soft movement.  I wanted her hair to look breeze blown, but still keep it up and off the dress,” Atkins says. 1. “To get this look at home, I love starting this style by washing hair with Clear Scalp & Hair’s Strong Lengths...

Get the hair: Hilary Swank at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party

The Oscars may have passed, but the fever remains! Part of the fun of the festivities are the big parties, and the Vanity Fair soiree is one of the biggest — love Hilary Swank’s romantic waves, a big trend on the red carpet this season. “We wanted to create a modern look with old Hollywood glamour, full of volume, control and shine, said Harry Josh, celebrity stylist for John Frieda. Before blow drying, Harry applied the John Frieda Luxurious Volume Fine To Full Blow Out Spray to Hilary’s roots. He blow-dried using his fingers, not a brush, in order to maintain volume and then detangled the hair with a paddle brush and used a 1-inch curling iron. He wrapped tiny sections in the exact same direction then let the ringlets cool for 10 minutes. To...

Amazing: General Aladeen (Sacha Baron Cohen) Dumps Ashes on Ryan Seacrest on Oscars Red Carpet

I may lose my Twitter street cred, but I’m only half-watching the Oscars this evening (deadline calls!) – BUT there’s a hilarious gem I just had to share. In this video, Sacha Baron Cohen arrived on the red carpet at the Oscars as General Aladeen, from his upcoming film, The Dictator — carrying the “ashes” of former North Korean leader, Kim Jong-il. Aladeen told Ryan Seacrest that Kim Jong-il had always dreamed of coming to the Oscars, and was wearing John Galliano, except for his socks, which are from K-mart! The Dictator then dumped Kim Jong-il’s ashes all over Ryan Seacrest’s Burberry tuxedo. Aladeen told Seacrest that now if anyone asks who is wearing to tell them he is wearing Kim Jong-il!!!! Amazing. You have...
