For Spring 2014, the top beauty trends include popsicle-orange lips, eyeshadows in every pastel shade under the sun and a whole lotta love for gold pigments. For those less inclined to pile on the product, good news: the no makeup makeup look is also trending this season. Read more »

Green glitter at Altuzarra, helmet hair at Alexander Wang: 9 beauty statements from the Fall 2014 shows
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 »
We’re only a few days into the circus that’s Fashion Month and there’s already some exceptional front row celebrity watching to be had. Kelly Rowland and Hailee Steinfeld were two of the many celebrities attending the New York Fashion Week Fall 2014 shows this past weekend, sitting front row at Public School and Prabal Gurung, respectively. Both stars stepped out in black and white ensembles that borrowed some inspiration from the southwest, a trend that Chanel just may have helped start with their Dallas show.
Kelly Rowland debuted a new bob at the Public School Fall 2014 show—which included the label’s first womenswear collection—and while we were certainly getting some throwback Destiny’s Child vibes, we couldn’t look past her leather ensemble. The Tom Ford Fall 2013 top certainly helped Rowland tap into her Texas roots, as it incorporated some serious Southern-style fringe-work on the sleeves and hem. Rowland finished her look off with a white KTZ undershirt splashed with foreign text on the hem and thigh-high leather Christian Louboutin boots. The R&B songstress was definitely having a rock star moment with her ensemble.

I just licked chocolate off the wall… isn’t that just the best ever fashion metaphor? Here at New York fashion week, there’s a show every hour on the hour. Sometimes on the half hour. It’s a perpetual carousel of Fall 2014 treats, treats we’re mean to synthesize, analyze and tell stories about. So hey, here’s your first batch of the 5 trends and cool stuff you need to know about from New York Fashion Week Fall 2014—including the chocolate bit.
Last night, Vogue Italia and P&G Prestige hosted quite the fancy event in Milan. Described as a magical journey that engaged all senses, the Beauty in Wonderland exhibit was a multisensory experience promoting P&G brands with instillations. And since a fashion event is never complete without a star-studded guest list, Blake Lively and Cate Blanchett, the faces of Gucci and Armani respectively, lent their star power while in town for Milan Fashion Week.
Switching gears from her leather body-hugging dress at Gucci, Blake Lively showed off a sportier side at last night’s event in a look straight off the runway, literally. Baring toned arms, the blonde bombshell arrived in a shimmering black halter Gucci jumpsuit from the Spring 2014 collection, which featured metallic green piping down the sides. With her hair in a messy updo, subtle smoky eyes and neutral pink lips, Lively made her laid back outfit look unquestionably luxe, making us quite nostalgic for her Serena van der Woodsen days.
Known for her statuesque beauty and classic style, Cate Blanchett channeled her playful side last night. The Australian actress arrived in a sleeveless tricolour dress by Prabal Gurung from the Resort 2014 collection, which featured a knee-length red and white skirt heavily embroidered with ostrich feathers. Finishing off her look with black peep-toed heels, Blanchett kept her beauty look relatively simple in a no-fuss updo and statement red lips. Read more »
