Perfume, pizza and Pinterest: We chat with Amy Adams about her red carpet beauty secrets and more

Should you click over to Amy Adams’ IMDB profile, it’s pretty clear why she’s been such a staple at awards shows for, oh, the last seven years. From her first Oscar-nominated role in Junebug to this year’s award-winning double header (American Hustle, Her) Adams’ resume is dotted with critically acclaimed films that include a range of compelling characters.

It’s this versatility that landed Adams a contract with Lacoste as the face of its women’s fragrances, including Eau de Lacoste Pour Femme and Eau de Lacoste Sensuelle. It’s a seemingly perfect match: the fragrances are all about femininity, confidence and natural elegance—which could just as easily describe Adams’ own effortless style. But don’t let us convince you! We caught up with Adams last week and after chatting about everything from red carpet style secrets to fragrance facts, it’s clear that she’s as charming and down-to-earth as they come. Read more »

Grammys beauty: Why Beyoncé’s wet hair and Lorde’s dark lips were the best looks of the night

We understand it may be wildly unfair to compare Beyoncé to, well, anyone else. But Lorde was blessed by Bey last night (touching Beyoncé = blessed) and she also took home two Grammy awards, so we think that gives her enough music industry magic to stand her own in this beauty roundup.

While teenage stars often succumb to adopting a shimmering, fairy princess-esque look for major red carpet events, Lorde stayed true to her signature look of deep lipstick and loose, wavy hair— like an edgy, mini Alanis Morissette. “We wanted to keep the look fresh and radiant. Modern, a bit boyish and darkly cool with a lip focus,” said M.A.C senior artist, Amber Dreadon. After applying M.A.C Lipliner in “Vino,” Dreadon mixed two lipsticks together for Lorde’s Grammys look: “Heroine” (a bright purple with a fitting name) and “Cyber” (a vamp-worthy maroon). The final result was an edgy shade of deep-purple with an almost ombré effect. Read more »

Golden Globes 2014: Burnt-berry lips and tight-lined eyes were the top red carpet beauty trends

The Golden Globes may be considered a red carpet test-run for the Oscars, but when it comes to beauty, it’s when A-listers tend to go all out. For the 2014 Golden Globes, it was all about bright lip colours and dramatic eye looks. The classic Old Hollywood red lip was ditched in favour of burnt shades of berry and orange. Jennifer Lawrence wore an almost-goth burgundy lip while Lupita Nyong’o added a metallic hit to her dark lipstick shade with a tinge of gold shimmer.

Of course, not everyone went dark: Both Zoe Saldana and Zooey Deschanel opted for a brighter take on the red carpet trend with perfect burnt orange-red pouts. Elisabeth Moss’s lipstick was a stand-out berry colour, just a few shades lighter than the purple hits in her shimmering J. Mendel gown—perhaps berry’s the official colour of award winners, as Cate Blanchette was also wearing it on her lips. Read more »

Short hair is still where it’s at, with above-the-shoulder styles being amongst the best beauty looks on the 2013 Emmy Awards red carpet. From Elisabeth Moss’s cropped platinum cut to Kate Mara’s striking pin-straight style to Claire Danes’ faux bob, the message was clear: to stand out in a sea of Old Hollywood side parts and loose updos, you have to go short.

Not willing to let Betty Draper have all the fun, Elisabeth Moss debuted her freshly-dyed blonde hair on the Emmys red carpet. Channeling a little bit of a Charlize Theron vibe, the tousled, modern style was a new look for Moss—and a fierce one at that. As for Mad Men’s other leading ladies, both January Jones and Christina Hendricks kept their short cuts curly. Read more »

Curly and wavy hairstyles are, without a doubt, one of our favourite red carpet looks. From perfectly coiffed Old Hollywood ringlets to messy beach waves, there are endless ways to wear your hair down—while still giving it some style. Curly hair is easier to master than an updo, looks much more dramatic than a ponytail and definitely has an appeal that straight hair just can’t match. Need further proof? We’ve gathered some of the best curly hair and wavy hair looks from recent red carpets all in one place. (If you haven’t already logged into your Pinterest account, now’s the time!) Read more »

Cannes 2013 red carpet beauty: The scoop on Aishwarya Rai’s hair, Marion Cotillard’s mascara and more

FASHION’s beauty editor Rani Sheen is currently at the Cannes Film Festival getting the red carpet scoop on all things beauty. Here’s what she witnessed over the weekend.

The inclement weather at the beginning of the world’s glitziest film festival did nothing for the beauty looks on the red carpet—Carey Mulligan bravely battled sheets of rain trying to derail her pale-pink Dior Couture gown and sleek centre-parted hair at the Great Gatsby’s premiere. However, the sun started to shine on Sunday and the stars took full advantage. Aishwarya Rai (commonly referred to as the most beautiful woman in the world) let her long, brown hair flow in natural waves at both the premiere of Blood Ties and the Cohen brother’s latest, Inside Llewyn Davis. But at Sunday’s gala for 100 Years of Bollywood, the Indian film and actual princess tried a style that quite befitting for the occasion. Read more »

Punk has never been so hotly debated. Ever since the Met Gala red carpet ended last night, anyone who’s a fan of fashion—and has a Twitter account—has shared their opinion on who interpreted the punk theme the best and who did it the worst. (Want to see all our best dressed picks? We have a full Met Gala 2013 style gallery up here.)

For hair and makeup, some stars took the Met Gala—and its theme, based on the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s new PUNK: Chaos to Couture exhibit—as reason enough to let loose and go all out. (Though Miley Cyrus probably doesn’t need such literal prompting!) You’d think after attending months of award shows with well-dictated dress codes that many A-listers would embrace the Met Gala as a chance to try something new. January Jones did: “I love to step outside the box,” she said of her braided hair and slick, black makeup, which was inspired by Siouxsie Sioux.

While there were certainly some gorgeous hairstyles and classic beauty looks on the Met Gala red carpet, let’s celebrate those who went beyond the cat-eye liner, red lip or sleek updo. From Elle Fanning’s tie-dyed, watercolour eyes to Cara Delevingne’s mock side-shave hair, here’s who we think had the best Met Gala beauty looks. Read more »
