Juno Temple In Vivienne Westwood Couture – ‘Horns’ LA Premiere

Red Carpet Fashion Awards - 29 min 11 sec ago

Juno Temple In Vivienne Westwood Couture - 'Horns' LA Premiere

Juno Temple attended the LA premiere of ‘Horns’ held at ArcLight Hollywood on Thursday (October 30) in Hollywood, California.

Opting for a part-wavy part-straight ponytail with intense wing-tipped eyes, the actress wore a signature Lilly dress from the Vivienne Westwood Couture collection.

Ending her run of all-black dresses, this pink strapless dress, which creates the most enviable silhouette, was styled with soaring heels and a small box clutch.

Were her kohl-rimmed eyes too intense for her pretty pink frock, or do the eyes help truly enhance her inner Vivienne Westwood rebel woman?

Halloween DIY: Paulina’s Big Bird Costume

Lauren Conrad - 48 min 38 sec ago

Happy Friday everyone! Today we want to congratulate our final DIY Halloween costume contest winner, Paulina! We love a good throwback and adore how Paulina put her own spin on one of our favorite childhood characters, Big Bird. Our feathery friend came to life in this costume tutorial with a little help from bright yellow boas and orange thigh-high socks. Lauren even made a similar version of this costume a few years back (see it here). Keep reading to create your very own version of Big Bird…

DIY Big Bird Hallowen Costume

Here’s what you will need:

  • yellow dress of your choice
  • 3-4 yellow feather boas
  • orange thigh-high socks
  • orange t-shirt (for Big Bird’s feet)
  • pink/purple socks (for the stripes on Big Bird’s legs)
  • yellow thread
  • scissors
  • pink and blue eyeshadow

Paulina’s Instructions:

For the body:

1. I got my dress at Goodwill. It was a perfect sleeveless dress for the costume, with a strap going around the neck. I cut off the strap and used it later to make gloves for bird’s arms.

2. Take your yellow feather boas and sew them together around the dress.

3. Make sure you thoroughly cover the whole dress.

For the arms:

1. Like I mentioned above, I was lucky to have additional material from the dress and decided to use it for Big Bird’s arms.

2. I simply cut two long strips, made a hole for my fingers, and tied the whole thing around my arms.

3. Lastly, I sewed some leftover feathers to the strips.

For the legs:

1. I got my orange thigh-high socks off of Amazon but you can also use tights.

2. For the stripes going around Big Bird’s legs I simply cut the colorful furry socks into strips creating circles (just like a rubber band or hair tie) that will easily stay on your legs. You will need about four strips for each leg.

3. You can find another way to make your pink/purple stripes. The reason I used furry socks is because they won’t cut off any blood pressure on your legs. Make sure you find something that will be comfortable to wear around your legs!

For the feet:

1. Cut sleeves off of the t-shirt to use them as a support for the top of Big Bird’s feet.

2. Then cut out the shape of Big Bird’s feet (three toes) from the rest of your orange shirt.

3. Make sure you cut out four samples of those toes. You will need to sew two of them together and fill them with the rest of the shirt’s material or other stuffing so that the feet look big enough.

4. Cut two little holes on the bottom side of one of Big Bird’s feet and put a piece of material through it. This way you will easily tie the feet to your shoes and make sure they will stay in place.

5. Lastly, sew the top of the feet (the part that goes around your ankles) together with your Big Bird feet.

For the makeup:

1. The fun part! Big Bird’s eyes are blue on the bottom eyelid and pink above it. However, I’d say that you can play with it according to what you like. Also, as seen in my picture, you can put as much eyeshadow that you feel comfortable with.

Viola! Happy spooky Halloween!

What costume will you be wearing tonight?

And thank you so much to everyone who entered our DIY Halloween Costume Contest! We can’t wait to do it again next year.

It’s Always 5 O’Clock Somewhere with this Alice + Olivia Bag

I fully believe in starting Fridays with something a little bit silly (that’s true of most days, but especially Fridays), and in honor of the Halloween drinks that many of us shall consume in mere hours’ time, the Alice + Olivia Martini Pouch seems more than appropriate.

Felicity Jones In Christopher Kane – BAFTA Los Angeles Jaguar Britannia Awards

Felicity Jones In Christopher Kane - BAFTA Los Angeles Jaguar Britannia Awards

Felicity Jones attended the BAFTA Los Angeles Jaguar Britannia Awards held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on Thursday (October 30) in Beverly Hills, California.

The British actress wore a Christopher Kane Spring 2015 black dress for the ceremony.

While I’m sure many will share my disappointment at the black over the periwinkle-blue option, one must concede that Felicity’s choice was very much more in tune with her I-often-favour-black elegant style.

Charming and buoyant with its fanciful tulle skirt, the actress was gracefully poised, styling her look with Cartier jewels, black ankle-strap pumps and a studded Rodo clutch for a touch of flair.

Should she have opted for the blue, or are you loving her in all black?

Padma Lakshmi In Cushnie et Ochs – 11th Annual Keep A Child Alive Black Ball

Padma Lakshmi In Cushnie et Ochs - 9th Annual Keep A Child Alive Black Ball

Padma Lakshmi attended the 9th annual Keep A Child Alive Black Ball held at Hammerstein Ballroom on Thursday (October 30) in New York City.

I was totally bowled over by the ‘Top Chef’ TV host wearing this breathtaking Cushnie et Ochs Fall 2014 cut-out petrol-blue silk-crepe gown featuring split molded cups, a keyhole at the waist and a front split at the skirt.

Exuding the confidence and sex appeal of a modern icon, my jaw may never return to its original position.

If you were hoping to vote for Padma in her Naeem Khan gown for BDOTW, this gown will supersede it.

Note to Lea Michele and Naya Rivera: This is how you do sexy without trying so damn hard.

Keira Knightley In Alessandra Rich – Mario Testino’s Birthday Party

Keira Knightley In Alessandra Rich - Mario Testino's Birthday Party

Keira Knightley attended Mario Testino’s birthday party held at the Chiltern Firehouse on Wednesday (October 29) in London, England.

The actress wore a vintage-inspired Alessandra Rich Spring 2015 cold-shoulder pleated button-down white dress, which evoked old Hollywood glamour. I can picture a young Liz Taylor wearing this look with over-sized shades, a wide-brimmed hat and of course a selection of Bulgari jewels.

Back to Keira, even with the Burberry trench obscuring a portion of the beautiful dress, I still feel the look is better presented with the belt, which adds an elegant flourish.

The rest of her styling consisted of complementary gold Prada pumps and a Chanel purse rounding out her look.

Taylor Swift In Sass & Bide - Good Morning America

Taylor Swift’s promo tour for her new album, ‘1989’, continued with a guest appearance on ABC’s ‘Good Morning America’ hosted in Times Square in New York City on Thursday (October 30), where she performed ‘Welcome To New York’, ‘Out Of The Woods’ and ‘Shake It Off’.

With gold and navy being the theme, she served up yet another leg-baring look, wearing a Sass & Bide look featuring a diamond-detailed bodysuit styled with high-waist shorts, which you can see from the brand’s website didn’t originally feature the button detailing.

This additional detailing sure does add yet more flair to her look, although I’m sure some would argue that it sends the look into sailor-suit territory.

Gold glitter pumps, sleek tresses and a pink lip rounded out her look.

Rashida Jones In Emanuel Ungaro - Marie Claire's 2nd Annual New Guard Lunch

Following the IWMF Courage In Journalism Awards, Rashida Jones was back on the red carpet attending Marie Claire’s 2nd Annual New Guard Lunch hosted at the Hearst Tower in New York City on Thursday (October 30).

The actress wore an Emanuel Ungaro Resort 2015 two-piece look rendered with contrasting floral prints and two shades of blue.

Between the chiffon top and ruffles on the skirt, this look couldn’t feel more ladylike and event appropriate for a luncheon.

The look feels so fresh, light and airy, which is in total contrast to her previous Erdem look.

Her pretty pink lips were a delightful way to complement the look, as were the navy pumps giving this sprightly look a touch of Fall.

Camilla Belle and Nicola Peltz In Gucci – Gucci Beverly Hills Store Opening Party

Camilla Belle and Nicola Peltz In Gucci - Gucci  Beverly Hills Store Opening Party

Camilla Belle and Nicola Peltz attended a cocktail party hosted by Gucci’s Frida Giannini and Patrizio Di Marco to celebrate the new Beverly Hills store on Thursday (October 30) in Beverly Hills, California.

In keeping with Gucci’s longstanding history with Hollywood, a new third floor featuring a wrap-around terrace overlooking Rodeo Drive is now dedicated to red carpet dressing with a special display exhibited a selection of Gucci Première couture gowns worn on the red carpet by Blake Lively, Salma Hayek Pinault, Taylor Swift and Mila Kunis.

Camilla Belle: The long-time friend of the brand continued her impressive week on the red carpet with yet another chic look, this time from Gucci’s Resort 2015 collection. Her sleeveless dress with its bold floral print detailed with pleated panels was styled with a matching blue clutch and nude toecap pumps for an elegant, ladylike impression. You guys have been very vocal about her hair and on this occasion I would agree. She’s better suited to darker tresses.

Nicola Peltz: True to form, it was an LWD for the young actress. Designed with cap sleeves, faux contouring lapels, a nipped in waist and outer pocket which enhanced the shape, this Gucci Fall 2014 tuxedo inspired cocktail dress one of the chicest LWDs I have seen in a while. Golden waves and Gucci burgundy patent leather sandals completed her look.

Emma Watson In Balenciaga - BAFTA Los Angeles Jaguar Britannia Awards

Emma Watson attended the BAFTA Los Angeles Jaguar Britannia Awards held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on Thursday (October 30) in Beverly Hills, California as one of the honourees.

The British actress wore a Balenciaga Spring 2015 look marrying a delicate ivory off-the-shoulder sheer-sleeved top with an embellished trim, with mannish slim-fit trousers which also featured embellished detailing.

Her streamlined look was styled with a black box clutch, high heels and a Jennifer Fisher reverse choker, with a pop of pink applied to her lips.

I think she totally nailed this feminine look with an edgy appeal with ease.

She continues to be the one to watch on the red carpet with her modern, chic, intriguing choices.

{Festive cookies from Eleni's}

When I first became active on Pinterest a few years ago, it was sometime late spring. And while most people at that time were creating boards filled with ideas for barbecues and patriotic 4th of July recipes, I had already moved onto Halloween. I wasn't aware that others could see me frantically pinning dozens of pictures of jack-o-lanterns and witches brews... and I was completely mortified. So it's safe to say that I look forward to October 31st all year and I can't wait to celebrate tonight with this new tradition followed by handing out candy. I hope you have a safe and sugar-filled night!
