Angelina Jolie’s Leather Bandage Dress: Yay or Nay?

August 13, 2009

Angelina Jolie hit the red carpet in a super-tight leather bandage dress for the premiere of her husband Brad Pitt’s new film last night.

Ange kept it simple by teaming the dress with black strappy heels and natural looking hair and make up.

Although Angelina looked stunning as always, we couldn’t help but notice she appeared to be verging on the skinny side. Let’s just hope it was down to the tight fitted dress and her famous curves aren’t gone for ever.

What do you think of Angelina’s red carpet look? Yay or Na

Get Anne Hathaway’s Dewy Oscar Glow

February 25, 2009

Anne Hathaway may have walked away empty handed from Sunday night’s Oscar ceremony, but she won the beauty gong in our eyes.
The actress has adopted a Golden era of Hollywood look of late, and has always championed her pale skin, refusing to wear fake tan, which makes her the ideal choice for a beauty icon.
We loved her look at The Academy Awards, teaming her stunning oyster coloured mermaid gown with glowing skin, simple accessories and a elegant up-do.
For you to recreate Anne’s Oscar look, it’s all about getting a flawless complexion, and making your lips the main focal point.
Her brown eyes always stand out, but she rarely opts for dramatic eye make-up, preferring instead to stick to stick to a nude base.
Anne’s lips however always look bee stung and beautiful, usually coated in a dab of red lipstick, rather than sticky gloss.
Considering this is the girl who made her new in Disney flick, The Princess Diaries her look Read more
