EMMY 2017: THE AWARD GOES TO …

Sunday, September 17th, 2017

The 2017 Emmy Awards were marked by a return to Hollywood glamour.  While Stephen Colbert’s musical opening number entertained us and Sterling K. Brown’s speech moved us, the red carpet’s elegance really wowed us with exquisite hair, makeup, and wardrobe.  Some of our favorite looks came from (clockwise from top left) Zoë Kravitz in Dior Haute Couture, Michelle Pfeiffer in Oscar de la Renta, Nicole Kidman in Calvin Klein by Appointment, Susan Kelechi Watson in Christina Ottaviano, Jessica Biel in Ralph & Russo, Evan Rachel Wood in Jeremy Scott for Moschino, Thandie Newton in Jason Wu, and Yara Shahidi in Prada.  Which were yours?

TEEN CHOICE AWARDS: COOL AND CLASSY!

Sunday, August 13th, 2017

The women of the 2017 Teen Choice Awards kept it cool and classy with beautiful, girly looks.  Yara Shahidi, Paris Jackson, Zendaya, Vanessa Hudgens, and Millie Bobby Brown (pictured left to right), were red carpet standouts, each demonstrating a sense of confidence and relaxed glamour.  We especially loved Paris Hilton’s make-under, and Zendaya’s perfect balance of relaxed curls and defined lips.  Viewers were shocked by the volume of “no-shows” (Miley Cyrus pulled out at the last moment, while Beyoncé, Zac Efron, Ariana Grande were simply absent) and video acceptance speeches from Bruno Mars and Gal Gadot.

A STYLIST’S SUMMER TRAVEL FASHION FIXES!

Sunday, July 9th, 2017

Stylist Zerina Akers, who works with everyone from Beyoncé, Ava DuVernay, and Yara Shahidi, to Chloe x Halle and more, knows that travel fashion flubs are always the worst.  Teaming up with tried-and-true beauty brand, Dove, the fashion guru shares her tips to fix and avoid these frustrating fashion dilemmas:

  • Keep a button in place with clear nail polish – If a button is loose and you don’t have time to re-sew it into place, take some clear nail polish and dab it on the knot, then hold the button in place for a minute. It acts as glue and will make it more secure until you can get a proper fix!
  • File your soles for a non-slip grip – If you have a pair of shoes with slick bottoms, buff the sole with an emery board to prevent you from slipping and to add traction.
  • Lose the fuzz with a pass of a razor – When garments start to pill from the wash, you can remove the fuzz with a razor. Simply run the razor lightly over the area and then carefully remove the pieces that collect. Repeat until all the pills are gone!
  • Unstick that zipper with Vaseline – When a zipper just won’t budge, you can rub a bit of Vaseline along where it is stuck. The Vaseline will help the zipper slide and wiggle free!
  • There’s an antiperspirant that actually doesn’t leave marks – Avoid dealing with pesky white marks by using Dove Invisible Dry Spray Antiperspirant. It goes on dry and invisible, leaving no white marks on 100 colors.
