At the Keep a Child Alive Blackball Gala, many of Hollywood’s humanitarians turned out to show their support. Elegance was an obvious theme, and Paula Patton’s own elegant look really caught our attention.

Ursula Stephen, Celebrity Stylist for Motions hair products, created Paula’s gorgeous pompadour-esque hairstyle, proving once again that red-carpet looks never have to break the bank. Here’s the inside scoop on how this show-stopping style was created:



Ursula applied a Motions Light Styling Foam ($5.99, all over Paula’s hair, then blew it dry in an upward direction for volume.

Using a 1 1/4” curling iron, waves were created throughout her hair.

With a fine-toothed comb, emphasizing on the crown, Ursula teased the hair.

The look was finished with Motions Light Hold Working Spritz ($4.99,



Celebrities like Lauren Conrad, Rachel Bilson, Eve Mendes and Michelle Tractenberg all have something in common— they love to rock blue nails. Wearing everything from deep navy to aquamarine, these ladies prove that you can go bold without going over-the-top. Another lesson to be learned? If you want to experiment with a more daring look, the best place to start is on your nails. Check out a few of our favorite blue hues.


1. Chanel Blue Satin is bold, yet classic and elegant— did you expect it to be anything but? $23,

2. Sparitual Surreal, a sapphire blue creme, is 100% vegan and 100% fabulous. $10, 

3. Zoya Akyra is a frosty blue metallic that keeps us cool and calm even while we practice our most challenging yoga poses. $7,

4. OPI for Sephora Ocean Love Potion, a mediterranean turquoise, looks cool with everything we wear. $9,
sjp-nyc.jpgWe recently discovered that Sarah Jessica Parker has a new fragrance in the works called SJP NYC, and we are beyond excited. It not only means the chance to add a new scent to our beloved collection, but also that we are so much closer to the ‘Sex and the City’ sequel.

Sarah Jessica Parker told Women’s Wear Daily about her inspiration behind the new scent:

“A large part of the inspiration was what I now understand to be people’s impressions of seeing Carrie Bradshaw walk down the street and what feelings that evokes for her and for them— a real sense of freedom and possibilities, a love for the city around her and, of course, fashion. We started with this idea that we wanted to create something fun. We wanted to create a party in a bottle and reflect that in the packaging with a real sense of whimsy, fun and joie de vivre.”

SJP NYC will first be released in Macy’s February 2010. Then in May, to coincide with the release of the second ‘Sex and the City’ movie, the fragrance will expand its reach to an additional 1,500 department and specialty stores in the U.S., and to 16 countries.

Beyonce_Billboard_Awards.jpgBeyonce was honored last week as ‘Woman of the Year’ at Billboard’s Women in Music awards. We were in awe of her glowing skin and overall makeup look, but it was her stand-out eyeshadow that we loved most. Makeup artist Jackie Gomez explains: “I loved the color of her dress so much so I wanted to mirror the effect that it had against her skin- the Cleo Duo Eyeshadow was perfect.”

We think so, too.



Nars Cleo Duo Eyeshadow, $32,


At the L’Oreal Paris Color of Hope event, we thought Kerry Washington’s eye makeup really stood out— in a good way. With gorgeous, indigo-liner and shadow, her eyes sparkled even more. Color is a great way to bring focus to your eyes, and you can do it with eyeshadows, liners, or a combo of both.

Tip: If you’re wearing a bold shade on your eyes, add a sheer wash of bright color to your cheeks so you won’t look washed-out.

Here are two products by L’Oreal we recommend to help you recreate the look:




Wear Infinite Single Eyeshadow in Midnight Sky— $4.48,








HIP Eye Liner Pencil in Navy— $8.49,
