10 FAMOUS WOMEN AGING GRACEFULLY IN HOLLYWOOD

“There is a fountain of youth: It is in your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of people you love. When you learn to tap this source, you will truly have defeated age.” Those sensible and wise words were once said by Sophia Loren. A woman who even today at 81 years of age, still exudes beauty, intelligence and sophistication. We seem to be living in a time when the obsession with beauty is at an all time high. As if women didn’t already have pressure to balance work and home life, there is the added pressure to lose weight, stay fit, have flawless skin, impeccable hair and of course, stay young. Women everywhere are taking extreme measures in order to turn back the hands of time and look younger. It’s hard not to notice that even teenage celebrities and non-celebrity girls are getting…

REMEMBERING OSCAR DE LA RENTA ON HIS BIRTHDAY

It has been a little under two years since the world and the fashion industry lost one of their biggest fashion design legends, Oscar de la Renta. Since then, his collections continue to sell and his successor, Peter Copping has done a stand-up job at keeping the level of sophistication and elegance that is true to the De la Renta brand. However, this week we learned that Peter is stepping down from his role as creative director due to personal reasons and is returning to Europe. The news spread quickly but came suddenly. Another talented and tenured creator was suddenly leaving a major fashion house. We all almost seem, surprised but not so much anymore all the same time. It seems to be the norm as of late for designers to stay with a label for just a handful of years before they are gone from that position. Nevertheless, there…

SHINE ON: METALLIC VIBES NOW

There is something about wearing metallics anytime of the year that really feels modern and edgy. Metallic has been going pretty strong in fashion for quite some time. From the runway to retail, you will find so many fun accessories and clothing options in some form of metallic. If you recall, there was a ton of metallic worn on the red carpet at the Met Gala back in May. Of course, that was a nod to the current Costume Institute exhibition, “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology” and perhaps you can take inspiration from there as well. The fashion runways were also full of metallics for spring/summer including shows from Saint Laurent, Naeem Khan and Chanel. Fashion tip, hold on to your armor and chains as this trend will continue on for fall/winter 2016 as well. No matter if your preference is gold, silver, copper or rose gold, there…

A HEAT WAVE & SOME SUMMER LIPSTICK FUN

From nude tones to bold deep plums, lipsticks are one of the many beauty products that have evolved in a big way. Lip liners are normally used to define the lip shape, but when it comes to ‘the rules’ of what hues are in style by season, those lines are pretty blurred. Gone are the days where you only wore light colors in the summer and a deep read in the fall. So with that said, let’s explore what is hotter than a heat wave in the lipstick market.  The brand SMASHBOX is by far a top favorite and the options are extensive. Depending on your preference they have liquid, matte or lacquer. Personal recommendations: SMASHBOX line of Be Legendary creme lipstick in Prim Rose Mauve, Legendary True Red and L.A. Sunset Coral Red. URBAN DECAY has been a favorite for a long time. They recently launched their 120-shade Vice…
