With a playful hairstyle, glowing skin and smoldering eye makeup, we couldn’t help but love Jessica Alba’s look at the People’s Choice Awards.



To achieve a more piecey look after curling Jessica’s hair, stylist Renato Campora applied FEKKAI COIFF Nonchalant Piecing & Forming Wax ($23, on the ends, adding texture and creating a more tousled look.



In the crisp chill of winter, keeping skin moisturized is top priority for us. St. Ives Luxurious Whipped Silk Body Wash ($3.99 for 18 fl oz., is one we love using these days— it’s wallet-friendly and yet still gives us the lavish lather with natural moisturizing ingredients we might find in a pricer brand. Take that dry skin!

It’s a new year (2010, can you believe it?), full of possibilities and positive expectations. Why not take a little time to discover a new, fun scent? The following are a handful of floral-infused scents that we are loving and think you may want to try on for size in 2010.



DKNY Sweet Caramel Candy Apple

“A crisp, irresistible surprise”. We find this scent to be delicate, succulant and creamy, with the right amount of sweetness. We highly recommend you try the other “flavors’ in this limited-edtion collection as well— yum! Limited Edition. $55,





Vera Wang Glam Princess

The newest princess to join the Vera Wang family is Glam Princess. Like a modern and feminine fairy-tale, this princess seems like a very inspired, imaginative and flirty one thanks in part to notes like crushed red berries, guava, marshmallow and vanilla orchid. Limited Edition. From $45,





Leslie Blodgett Santa Barbara Eau de Parfum Spray

Like a getaway in a bottle, we love the cool vibe of this scent. A blend of subtle fruits, soft white flowers and mellow woods are captured in this Sephora exclusive. From $16,






Smashbox Heartbreaker Eau de Parfum

Smashbox’s Spring 2010 collection, Heartbreaker, also includes the brand’s first fragrance, an “alluring, spicy floral” eau de parfum. While the scent is the perfect blend to take us into spring, the rollerball packaging makes it travel-friendly—  love that. $22,






Helena Rubinstein’s Wanted

“Vibrant, modern and fresh”, this new fragrance isn’t too daring so it’s suitable for the office. With notes of iris, cedar, sandalwood and vanilla, you may want this feminine scent carrying you through the year. From $60,



If 2009 taught us anything, it’s that glamour is back in a big way. While stars like Rihanna and Lady Gaga took major risks (some we loved, some not so much), our favorite stars were always pulling out glamorous, elegant looks that will remain in our memories. These are the 5 looks we loved in 2009.

Kate Winslet

2009 was Kate’s award-winning year not only for her incredible acting ability, but on every red carpet she graced. Her sophisticated and timeless look at the 2009 Screen Actor’s Guild Awards is one for the history books.

We loved this sleek bob hairstyle on Ms. Henson at the Academy Awards. Her gorgeous smoky eye and powder-pink lip was fresh and clean, perfect to show off the star’s natural beauty.

The Sherlock Holmes star’s French braid was definitely grown-up with a bit of texture and volume— can you say ooh-la-la?

For her appearance at the premiere of G.I. Joe , we were dazzled by Sienna’s soft waves that were very reminiscent of Veronica Lake.

The reality star/designer/author made many appearances rocking a bold lip. This retro-inpsired makeup look proved the red lip will always be chic.
