Red Carpet Lately

I love looking at all of the red carpet events and how the stars turn up the glamour and go all out in designer dresses, shoes and accessories. The makeup is always flawless and the star's hair is spent hours on. Not to mention nails, facials... the list could go on and on. 

Let's just suffice it to say this is the absolute BEST any given person could look on any given day.... and some people blow it.
What do you think of these looks??

{Camilla Belle in Jason Wu}

{Jessica Biel in Giambattista Valli}

{Kate Beckinsale in Donna Karan}

{Jennifer Garner in Jason Wu}

{Elisabeth Moss in Dolce & Gabbana}

{Ashley Greene in Donna Karan Atelier}

{Kirsten Dunst in Jean Paul Gaultier}

Seems to be a lot of black/white on the red carpet lately. Props to Kirsten and Ashley for going with some color. But I think the black/white colors are always so chic.

Have a wonderful weekend!
Stay Beautiful!

The September Issue

I'm always so excited for August to come around and we start seeing the magazines that we read and love every month suddenly turn into books. 600 pages of fashion delight just waiting to be explored! Some complain that half of the pages are ads, but I love looking at ads and how they're styled. Not to mention the beautiful photography.

So which magazine do you enjoy even more in the month of August? And which cover star do you think nailed the cover this month?

Of course there are more covers such as Cosmo and Allure, but to me (call me old-fashioned) they're too risque for me to put on my blog. I try to keep this space as PG-rated as I can!

It's so hard for me to choose which one I love most, but I love how they didn't photoshop Penelope as much on the W cover. We can still see her gorgeous freckles! Way to go W! 
And Victoria is looking so cute on the Glamour cover. I'm loving how she's wearing the jewels in the bathtub... you can't get more luxe than that!

I hope you all have a fantastic Monday!
Stay Beautiful!

The Reality Of Beauty

I'm sure most of you have seen this video done by Dove. It really helped me to realize how much "work" is done on models/celebrities before we see them in print.

So, please, don't judge yourself based on how a fake and unreal person looks in the glossy pages of a magazine or on a bill board as you drive down the highway. No one is as perfect as a photoshopped image... so why try?? Just be the best and most beautiful YOU there is!




Stay Beautiful!
