Dîner en Blanc hits Edmonton! 25 all-white photos that prove a little rain never hurt anyone


Diner En Blanc Edmonton

We may have arrived a little late to the party, but we certainly had a fashionable debut. For the first time ever, the secret, all-white mystery picnic, Dîner en Blanc, landed in Edmonton. Made famous by the city of Paris 25 years ago (and now taking place in cities all over the world), the rain-or-shine event forged on honorably last night through what my waterlogged white dress can only inflate to a mid-summer deluge.

If it sounds like I’m complaining, I am (or was). After all, we had to go shopping for a head-to-toe white outfit, bring our own white tables and chairs, plateware, stemware, napkins and flatware. The food we packed in our white picnic baskets had to be gourmet. We had to leave work early! In the thunder and rain!

Sometimes, if you’re willing to put in a little bit of effort, you get something extraordinary. Equipped with all of the above, upwards of 1,200 people descended on Louise McKinney Park (the secret location is only revealed at the very last minute) and it was some kind of magical.

Afternoon Delight: Kevin Murphy Shimmer.Shine is a bottle of sparkles and happiness



Are you into sparkles, joy and things that smell good? If yes, then you’re in luck today because you can buy all those things in pretty little bottle. (If not, I’m not sure what advice to give you, honestly.) Kevin Murphy‘s Shimmer.Shine is a finishing spray that smells musky yet sweet, and is enriched with Vitamins A, C and E, Baobab, Immortelle and Bamboo extracts, so it treats your hair as it styles and maintains smoothness. It’s essentially a leave-in conditioning spray (so skip your oil treatments if you’re using it) that has light-reflective technologies to make your hair shimmer in the sun.

The week in celebrity style: See who made our top 10 best dressed


celebrity style

See our top 10 best dressed »

Whether on the red carpet or the street, you can’t go wrong wearing black. This week it looks like celebrities everywhere proved just that. Continuing her best-dressed streak, Nicola Peltz looked babely as ever in a hot leather two-piece ensemble for the Rio de Janeiro premiere of the latest Transformers installment. While the young actress is no stranger to showing some skin lately, we were pleasantly surprised to see Kate Hudson join in on the trend. The actress attended a New York screening going borderline Goth wearing a black strapless gown (cut-outs and all), sleek-straight hair and deep plum lips, which hit the midriff-showing look out of the park.

The 2014 ESPY Awards (the Oscars of the sports world) took place this past Wednesday, where top celebrities sat side by side with the top athletes. And did we mention, Drake had the honour of hosting the event? Yep. While all eyes were on the superstar athletes, we were completely occupied by the standout outfits over on the red carpet. Once again, LBDs were the favoured look of the night (cases in point: Cameron Diaz and Iggy Azalea both rocked it!), but Jessica Alba who donned her second gold number in the past month, naturally stood out from the rest of the A-list stars.

Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie style over the years »

A lot has happened since Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie burst onto the scene with their 2003 mega-hit reality show The Simple Life. Their chronic party girl ways (a leaked sex tape, multiple arrests, and some really questionable fashion choices) have been left in the past, but thanks to the Internet, their trashy early 2000s style will live on forever. In honour of the duo’s return to the spotlight—Richie’s new reality show #CandidlyNicole premiered last night and Hilton’s sparkly music career has made a comeback with a new pop video—we decided it was time to take a look back at the style metamorphosis of these reality TV veterans.

Curly vs. straight hair: 6 Beauty Panel tips for straying from your natural texture in the summer


curly vs straight hairstyle beauty panel

At one point or another, we’ve all wished for hair different than what we were born with. Which straight-haired gal hasn’t deemed her hair lifeless some mornings and prayed for bouncy curls? And show us a curly-haired lady who hasn’t dreamt of effortlessly sleek strands? Let’s face it; we all want we don’t have. With celebrities these days, being the hair chameleons that they are, rocking envious curls one day, and silky smooth, straight hair the next, we’d be lying if we said we weren’t totally jealous.

But without a hairstylist on hand 24/7, jumping from one spectrum to the other on our own is no easy task. Sure, many of us have learned to be okay with the fact that our hair tends to do what it wants , but when you feel determined to step over to the other side, we’ve turned to our panel of beauty gurus to help you out. So, for those who are born with curly hair, Beauty Panel has tips and tricks for keeping it straight. And for those with straight hair who like it curly? Don’t worry, we’ve got the answer to that too.

Challenge 70: How do you maintain a hair texture that isn’t the one you were born with ? See the answers now! »
