A guide to Shailene Woodley’s style »

Move over KStew, there’s a new franchise face in town. If box office predictions are right: Shailene Woodley is about to become one of the biggest starts in Hollywood. As star of the upcoming Divergent, the 22-year-old actress is transitioning from a teen drama actress into a full-fledged A-lister. Known for her laid-back vibe and newly chopped hair, Woodley has been racking up red carpet marks in looks by Calvin Klein, Valentino and Jonathan Saunders.

For the past few months, Woodley’s been making the promotional rounds alongside studly co-star Theo James (a.k.a. Kemal Pamuk from season one of Downton Abbey). And while she describes her personal style as plain Jane, she favours relaxed statement making on the red carpet. Standout looks have included the bell-sleeved white Alexander McQueen dress and shoes worn at the Atlanta Divergent screening as well as the head-to-toe bodycon Jeremy Laing worn to the BBC Radio 1 Teen Awards.

The eyes, hair and nails have been making most of the beauty statements so far on the Fall 2014 runways at New York Fashion Week. Here are our favourite looks and the top beauty trends so far:

Russet lipstick as eyeshadow at Helmut Lang
Helmut Lang’s textured, masculine collection was complemented with a simple, pared down face punctuated by a soft wash of lustrous burgundy on the eye. “It’s very minimal and clean but with a hint of punk,” said lead artist Hannah Murray, who painted Nars lipstick in “Deborah Audacious” (coming this fall) onto the eye and pressed “Heat” bronzing powder over it to set. She skipped eyeliner, mascara and brow colour, and kept the under-eye area clean to avoid a “pink-eye” effect. Read more »

Simple and demure was the name of the game for two of Hollywood’s style mavens.  This past week, Allison Williams and Scarlett Johansson ditched the glitz and opted for a softer approach to dressing, sporting similarly casual black and white looks.

At the opening party for Diane Von Furstenberg’s “Journey of a Dress retrospective exhibition at the Wilshire May Building in Los Angeles (on through April 1, 2014), Williams went apropos in a signature DVF wrap. The dress featured a simple black top and contrasting flared black and white polka dot skirt, which she paired with white Jimmy Choo ankle-strap heels and ‘40s glamour girl curls.

At collections including Carven, Simone Rocha and 3.1 Phillip Lim, the shade was made modern with the use of sport fabrics like neoprene and on oversized fluffy overcoats.

How to wear pink: 11 Style Panel tips for co-opting spring’s typically girlish hue for fashionable Fall 2013 wear


Pink Style Panel

If you haven’t yet embraced that pink is a big part of Fall 2013′s colour palette, we don’t blame you. Though pink has been there for us when we bid adieu to the winter’s cold and reclaimed our femininity from dark heavy coats it’s time to embrace it as a burst of girlishness to a different season.

Last Sunday at the Emmys, we were a little more convinced of pink’s fall arrival by Rose Byrne and January Jones in pink petal and dusty rose toned gowns respectively. On the Fall 2013 runways we saw a plaid belted coatdress from Prada and mix and matched shades of pink from Diane Von Furstenberg and Jeremy Laing proving that the hue can adapt to all seasons.


Since you’ve probably packed away all your femme hued frocks and coats, our Style Panel will sway you to dust them off and give them a whirl this fall. The Style Mogul’s Christine Cravero and Amber Desilets of Canadian Fashionista show you just how to wear make your powder pink coat fall ready by layering it with denim and grey pieces. Dainty Girl’s Nicole Wilson and Zoe Smythe of Zoe’s Fashion Feed wear floral print dresses with varying shades of the hue from a soft blush to a deep salmon showing you variable and workable shades of pink.

The Style Panel definitely did not shy away from the girly hue and neither should you. Still not convinced? Read on to see our girls’ pink looks for this season.

The nails at New York Fashion Week were right in tune with the ’90s minimalism style we saw on the Spring 2014 runways. Sheer is in, colour is out and the nail art trend seems to be winding down. The bare and buffed nails of last spring are still going strong for 2014, with designers like Altuzarra, Alexander Wang and Jeremy Laing opting for pale shades of pink, lavender or beige instead of punchy pastels and neon brights.

Fall may be creeping closer and closer, but at last night’s Teen Choice Awards, summer was still in style. And for Bella Thorne and Lily Collins, summer style was quite literal with their matching palm tree-print ensembles—a bright look that made us think of nothing but sunsets on the golden coast.

Disney starlet Bella Thorne is never shy when it comes to print-heavy outfits on the red carpet. For the 2013 Teen Choice Awards, Thorne was dressed in a two-piece outfit by Fausto Puglisi from the Resort 2014 collection. Read more »
