Now trending: 12 perfect pink perfumes that will have you smelling like everyone’s favourite spring hue


Marc Jacobs Pink Honey

Check out our favourite pink fragrances »

On Wednesdays we wear pink… you just can’t always see it. Warmer weather brings with it a sense of hazy nostalgia and longing for simpler, sweeter times, and that goes for scents as well. We’re putting down the bold, androgynous fragrances that we’ve been infatuated with, and are taking a look at some of the pretty perfumes that always manage to leave us feeling as carefree as ever.

With the exception of the satin jacket uniform that belonged to the Pink Ladies of Grease, pink (especially light pink) has never really been considered a cool-girl staple. However, thanks to the reemergence of the ’90s that’s infiltrated the fashion and beauty world for the past few seasons, baby pink is back in a new way and this time, it’s badder than ever. While the pretty shade once belonged to the likes of teenaged Britney and Christina, these days it’s being accepted by the cool kids, including the original bad gal herself, RiRi.

Met Gala 2014: The 54 best dressed on last night’s epic red carpet

If reports about Anna Wintour wanting this year’s Met Gala to be more exclusive were true, they certainly did not apply to the A-list. Last night’s red carpet was stacked (and we mean stacked) with just about everyone from the recluse to rising star. Surely, it had something to do with the fact that last night was the inaugural Met Gala celebrating the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s renamed Anna Wintour Costume Center. Maybe too, it was just like the rest of us have been trained to understand: The Met Gala is not to be missed.

Honouring oft-forgotten American couturier Charles James, last night’s event was all about 1950s glamour. Its “white tie” guest-list prompted gents like Johnny Depp and Kanye West to wear tails, Zoe Saldana to wear a recreated Michael Kors bustle and both Taylor Swift and Sarah Jessica Parker to take to the stairs with over-the-top Oscar de la Renta trains. Unlike the sometimes cookie cutter Oscars, the Met Gala is a time to break out some real steez and red carpet queen Lupita Nyong’o did just that in a flapper-inspired feathered Prada dress. Perhaps more Poiret than James, the dress made for some serious chatter from both the “for” and “against” camps. Fellow red carpet queen (and queen of life, truly) Rihanna went anti-theme in a sexy stomach-baring Stella McCartney dress which killed, as usual.

Emma Watson’s ear cuffs: A closer look at the star’s stunning jewellery obsession

It’s pretty much a fact that Emma Watson is always flawless. She’s perfected the art of looking on-trend without being overly trendy and has an air of elegance other young starlets could only dream of achieving. Of course, the downside to all this elegance is that we usually only see Watson when she’s working—no tabloid cover scandals for this actor. Thankfully she’s been out and about quite frequently over the last few weeks, promoting her latest film, Noah, and we don’t need to tell you that she’s been killing it on the red carpet.

Her two most recent red carpet looks, from the New York City and London premieres, involved simple, sculptural dresses in solid colours. In New York, Watson wore a black, long-sleeve Oscar de le Renta gown from the Fall 2014 collection. A deep-cut, open back kept it from being too mature a look for the 23-year-old—who was quoted this weekend as saying she can’t wait to age. (Lol, okay.) Today in London, Watson stunned in an all-white Ralph Lauren Collection silk column gown. Both looks are top notch, but what really has us on board with Watson’s style are her stand-out accessories.

Your first time at any international fashion week will teach you a valuable lesson: You need a fur. And not just any Margot Tenenbaum style granny hand-me-down. A fur so intricately patterned, multi-layered and artificially coloured, that it has to be designer. Given its place at the apex of the top Fall 2014 trends, you’d think recessionary times were long gone—it’s virtually everywhere, from a hyper colour mink at Altuzarra to a fluffy red dress at Prada. Wear it with caution or as Dior prescribes, dangle it over your arm like it’s no big d. Let the fur fly, scruples or otherwise.

Grammys 2014: The 7 best dressed on the red carpet


Grammys 2014 Red Carpet

Last night, music’s reigning royal couple, Beyoncé and Jay Z, continued to win at life, opening Grammys 2014 with one hella sexy lovefest courtesy of Bey’s new single, “Drunk in Love.” Aside from their amazing performance and some collaborations from our wildest dreams—hello Pharrell Williams, Daft Punk and Stevie Wonder!—there were some very unusual outfits. From country songstress Kacey Musgraveslight up cowboy boots to Cyndi Lauper’s caped get up, fashion critics were split on most of the outfits from the night.

Taking a cue from Diane Keaton’s stylish tuxedo at the recent Golden Globes, Madonna went androgynous in a Ralph Lauren double-breasted tux, accessorizing with a sparkly glove, gold grills, and her son David who walked the carpet by her side. Katy Perry showed some love for Valentino, rocking a couture white tulle confection with staffs of sheet music splashed across the skirt. Some thought it verged on tacky, but we give her mad props for embodying the night’s theme so fully.

Both Ciara and Alicia Keys showed how to make the most of curves. Ciara showed off her baby bump in a fitted Emilio Pucci dress, keeping her hair and make up perfectly low key, as to not overwhelm the sequined get up. Similarly, Alicia Keys, kept her coiffed hair and make up simple, and let her cobalt blue Armani Privé halter gown take centre stage. The plunging neckline might be too much for some, but Alicia pulls off the bold look effortlessly.

Sochi 2014 Uniforms: The best Olympic getups from around the world

Sochi 2014 Uniforms Team France

Every two years, we humble plebes are reminded what is possible when we opt for the gym over a Scandal marathon. Olympians impress us with the kind of crazy skills we couldn’t rival in our wildest dreams but we usually have them beat on one account: fashion. Olympics past have brought out berets of shame and knockoffs, but so far, it looks like the tide might just be turning. Could a seriously stylish Sochi 2014 be ahead?

After being criticized for outsourcing its wares for the London 2012 Olympics, Ralph Lauren added the tagline “Made in America” to Team USA’s uniforms, which match alpine chicness with prep appeal. Hudson Bay’s point blanket jacket was an obvious inspiration for the pea coat and the white sweatpants are an odd choice for an official look. But on the whole, we give it two thumbs up.
