Brandi Glanville’s Oscar Dress

Brandi-Glanville-Oscars-Dress

What is Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville doing at the Oscars? I’m sure I’m not the only one wondering.

Now lets get to the topic in hand, “Brandi’s Oscar Look”.

From the neck up, Glanville went for a classic Old Hollywood look, with a softly curled updo, red lips and a Jeffrey Daniels Unique Designs diamond choker.

From the neck down, Glanville seems to have gotten confused about which awards show she was attending, showcasing her Golden Globes to maximum effect in a dress she reportedly designed herself.

The plunging sweetheart neckline, high-slit ruffled train and dishwater hue were all bold choices for someone who may have otherwise walked the red carpet completely unnoticed.

And attracting attention before the night even truly began is certainly worthy of an award in and of itself.

Hair tutorial gone wrong

A girl shows other ladies how to have nice hair and then ends up with less than what she started off with. Sad but her reaction was kind of funny.

Bad Hair Day Ideas – Hat Edition

With bad winter weather making its way across the country — it’s already dumped up to a foot of snow across the Midwest! — we figured now’s a better time than ever to check out how stylish celebs are keep things cute in this horrible cold.

From braids paired with beanies and Hollywood waves cascading from knit berets, this, ladies, is how to make hat hair look hot!

Prevent that dreaded hat hair crease by weaving your locks into a loose braid a la Diane Kruger.The more flyaways, the better! We know it sounds counterintuitive, but they’ll make any imperfections seem purposeful. As for the hat itself, a sophisticated style (like this Chanel beret) will exude instant polish.

It was fuh-reezing in Paris during Haute Couture Week 2013, but that didn’t stop Hailee Steinfeld from rocking this seriously fierce, preppy headgear.

To make her newsboy hat modern and not, uh, newsboy-ish, she complemented the cap — which she wore askew, cute! — with a twisted side-bun and a romantic, curly tendril.

Even the warmest climes — who else is dreaming for the beach right now — get a little bit chilly.

Follow in Ashley Benson’s footsteps by coordinating a knit beanie with messy waves and chunky frames. Keep your makeup neutral to really rock the hipster look.

When in doubt, do as the models do. We love how effortless — and warm! — Jourdan Dunn looked all covered up in her fur ear-flap cap at New York Fashion Week.

Her weather-dampened tresses practically screamed, “This snow won’t hold me down.”

Even if you don’t know who the hell Justin Verlander is or why he’s like, the, greatest pitcher in baseball — and even if you still don’t give a hoot after that description — you can still sport some Major League style with a leather cap. The best part? It’s totally transitional to spring!

Leigh Lezark, for example, is one of the many girls spotted recently at Fashion Week giving the luxe look some love.

Berets are inherently chic. That slouchy yet refined silhouette just has a Parisian je ne sais quoi about it. Layered a top a pile of loose, Hollywood-like waves — just like Kelly Brook here? That’s about as good as things can get in this weather.

One of the worst things about harsh winter weather? Frigid winds so cold they cause a stream of mascara to run down your face.

Enter Rihanna’s street chic formula. An edgy cap + towel dried waves + a bold red lip = perfection.

Hey, if all else fails and it’s just that nasty outside — you can never go wrong by hiding disheveled hair behind a big, wide-brimmed hat and dark sunnies. Case in point: Vanessa Hudgens.

25 ways to fix dry Itchy Skin

dry-and-itchy-skin

 

There’s nothing worse than dry, itchy skin. Dry skin can happen any time during the year, but is most prevalent in winter (hence the term, “winter itch”). Find out why your skin tends to be dry in winter and how to solve dry hands, feet, body, face and lips year-round.

Why Do I Suffer From Dry Skin in the Winter?

In winter, low temperatures, low humidity and strong, harsh winds deplete skin of its natural lipid layer, which keeps the skin from drying out. The dry air from furnaces and other heating sources also suck the moisture out of skin. To keep skin soft and supple, your goal is not to add moisture to skin, but to keep moisture in. These 25 tips show you how to do this.

Dry Skin Tip: Keep Water Lukewarm, Not Hot

Hot water robs skin of moisture causing dry skin, so it’s best to shower in lukewarm water. If you can’t bear this rule — I can’t — try to keep your showers short and try showering only once per day. This also means skipping hot tubs (another rule I simply cannot bear). The hot, hot temperature, combined with drying chemicals, is torture on dry skin.

The same rule applies to hand-washing: Wash hands in lukewarm, never hot, water (this is a rule I firmly abide by). If your skin turns red, the water is simply too hot.

Dry Skin Tip: Moisturize After Showers or Hand Washing

Your skin will tell you when it’s dry. If your skin feels tight and taut, it’s time to add moisture..

Dry Skin Tip: Exfoliate on a Weekly or Semi-Weekly Basis

Moisturizer is much more effective on properly exfoliated skin. Use a salt or sugar scrub in the shower and exfoliate your face with a mild scrub made for the face at least once a week.

Here’s a tip I use during the winter months: Apply extra virgin coconut oil on your freshly cleansed face. Use a warm, wet washcloth to massage the oil into the skin. This works to exfoliate and moisturize. You can also use this method on your body. Add sugar or salt to the oil to make your own scrub.

Dry Skin Tip: Invest in a Humidifier

Ever notice how older people in desert climates look like leather? The moisture in the air is actually good for skin. If you live in a low-humidity climate or you are around furnaces in the winter, invest in a humidifier.

I once read that your skin needs more than 30 percent humidity to stay properly moisturized. A room heated by a furnace can have as little as 10 percent moisture. In the winter, consider sleeping with a humidifier in your bedroom. Keep doors closed so the moist air doesn’t escape the room.

Dry Skin Tip: Use a Facial Mask for Dry Skin

facial masks work wonders on dry skin and cost close to nothing.

Dry Skin Tip: Skip the Drying Soaps

Soaps can be drying. Stick with a creamy moisturizing cleanser that contains glycerin or petrolatum, such as Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Body Wash for the body or Purpose Gentle Cleansing Wash  for the face.

Extra tip: Simply can’t skip the bath? Skip the bubbles, which can contain harsh foaming ingredients and opt for bath oils or oatmeal scrubs, which are great for soothing itchy skin.

Dry Skin Tip: Baby Your Hands

Hands and feet can suffer terribly from dry, itchy skin. Put on moisturizer and gloves BEFORE you head outdoors in the winter, and consider lathering up your feet in thick moisturizer and sleeping in cotton socks at night.

Dry Skin Tip: How To Soften Dry, Cracked Heels

Dry, cracked feet are never sexy. To keep feet soft, cover feet in a thick moisturizer, wrap feet in Saran Wrap, then pull on a pair of socks for a couple hours. Try to sit or lie down while the moisturizer soaks in or risk sliding into a full split and pulling your groin muscles. The same treatment can be done on hands, except try plastic bags and keep hands in a pair of socks. A half-hour should do you.

Dry Skin Tip: Don’t Forget Your Lips

Licking your lips will not moisturize them and instead will help dry them out. Lips retain less moisture than other parts of the body, so they tend to dry out more quickly. A simple lip balm helps but if you have the bucks, try: Kinerase Lip Treatment (about $25).

Dry Skin Tip: Protect Your Face, Too

If you have super, duper sensitive skin, consider avoiding rinsing your face with tap water, which can contain harsh minerals that are especially drying to the skin (Dr. Dennis Gross once told me New York water contains a lot of harsh minerals, while Seattle water, for example, does not. Go figure). Instead use a cold cream like Pond’s to cleanse your face or use bottled spring water.

Consider Fish Oil Pills

New studies show omega-3 fish oil pills may soothe super dry skin. Patients who took fish oils pills in a study reported in Allure magazine, saw significant results within a few weeks. “You can see, within six weeks, the skin, hair and nails improve markedly,” according to skin expert Dr. Andrew Weil in Allure. Ever since I started taking fish oil pills in March, 2007, I have received numerous compliments on how amazing my skin looks. So there you have it.

How To Get Beachy Waves Hair

Here is how to get hair that makes you look like you’ve been hanging out at beach, even if you’ve been slaving away at the office all day.

Reality TV star Evelyn Lozada introduced her new Vida Luxe clothing line at London Fashion Week. In a recent interview with Celebuzz, Evelyn said, “I wanted to do something big, and I thought that launching this overseas would have a great affect on the line. I figured ‘go big or go home!”

Evelyn partnered with Teresa Caldwell, also known as Bow Wow’s mother, to create a line that’s “very feminine and flowy and will fit all body types. It’s just so much fun. Lots of colors and patterns,” said Evelyn.

The collection will retail from $100 and Evelyn hopes to explain the line to include denim and sweat suits.
