CelebrityTaylor Swift for Vogue

 
Who doesn’t love Taylor Swift? How can a girl that famous, that pretty, that rich, be so down-to-earth??? Well if you’re looking for ammo to build a case against her, the February issue of Vogue‘s got nothing for you. If, however, you’d like to ooo and ahh over a gorgeous collection of photos of Miss Swift looking ah-mazing, then you’re one lucky girl (or boy, I guess).
 

 

 

 
I’m SO in love with the hippie-boho-rocker feel of this shoot. Makes me want to go home and watch Almost Famous.
 

 

 

 
So, now I feel kind of shallow because all I really care about is the pretty pictures. The thing is, the interview is actually totally worth reading as well, so I really must recommend checking out the whole darn article.

BeautyParis Haute Couture Fashion Week 2012: Fave Makeup Looks

Paris Haute Couture Fashion week is a time of over-the-top designs, costume-y creations, and generally pushing the line. It’s a chance for designers to let loose that bizarre little child living in their brains and craft outfits that would make the movies proud. As always, the Spring/Summer 2012 show did not disappoint. 
 
In addition to the clothing and the outfits, the makeup in so many of these shows is just out of this world. For your viewing pleasure, I’ve picked out some of the coolest/most outrageous face and hair combos spotted on the runway. Think you could rock any of these?
 
A flower child of Alexis Mabille.
 
 
 
How about a classy mohawk, a la Chanel?
 
 
Check out this sick braid on the models of Christophe Josse (I totally want to try this at home!).
 
 
Jean Paul Gaultier‘s whole show was dedicated to Amy Winehouse’s memory.
 
 
Okay, while this isn’t regular makeup, the body art of Franck Sorbier IS the sweetest body makeup I’ve seen in a long time.
 
 
Oh, hello, future of fashion. Slick ponytails and dark eye makeup of Versace kindof had a Tron theme going, don’t you think?
 
 
Forest nymph, anyone? Maurizio Galante‘s models rocked some interesting foliage.
 
 
Please note the tiny dots beneath the eyes of Maxime Simoens‘s girls. Cool, or weird?
 
 
And then, just to be all NORMAL and stuff, Ellie Saab went with just plain, pretty, and powerful lashes. 
 
 
I would say don’t try these looks at home, but I’m actually hoping some of you actually will . . . and then post the pictures for us to see . . . just sayin’.

FashionLooks We ♥: Pastels

 

 
 
There’s no better time to revel in pastels than early spring. We seem to be standing amidst the emergence of colors like blush pink, peach, mint and icy blue as if they were falling from the trees, and I, for one, am hoping it lasts well into the year. Rest your eyes for a minute on this soft collection and think pastel!
 
 
 
 
 

CelebrityHot Guy Spotlight: Jack & Joe

Anyone who’s ever been to the LuLu*s warehouse will know that there are a LOT of girls here. In fact, out of all the employees who work here, the girls outnumber the guys 12 to 1. All the guys who work here are awesome, but the ratio is a little low; sometimes I just need an extra dose of manliness in my life.
 
And so . . . without futher ado, I bring you two guys with special swoon appeal.
 
Exhibit A:
 
The first, you probably know. Otherwise known as Joe Manganiello, he is best known for his role as the hunky werewolf Alcide on HBO’s True Blood. He’s also starred in How I Met Your Mother, Spider-Man 2&3, One Tree Hill, and a bunch of other movies and TV shows. He is also known for his delicious abs.
 


 
 
Exhibit B
 
Jackson Hurst. If any of you watch Drop Dead Diva (you know who you are, fellow Netflix addicts), then you’ll know who I’m talking about. He plays the brooding lawyer Grayson Kent and looks damn fine in a suit. You might have also seen him in the 2011 A Bird of the Air, or last year’s new series Unforgettable.
 
 
 
Both of these guys have seriously great hair! Yum! Anyway…um, moving on…
 
So do any of you have any unknown hotties we NEED to know about right now? If so, it is really your duty to tell us about them below. K thanks.

FashionBest of Pre-Fall 2012

Okay, so if you didn’t know, we just finished the pre-fall season for 2012. Below I  highlighted my 10 favorite collections from the pre-fall season, in no particular order. You can agree with me or not, it’s okay, it’s what make the world turn, you know? You can always comment with your thoughts (wink wink, nudge nudge). 
 




 


 

 



 
*So Chanel would totally make this list (it was one of my fav shows) but we already did a blog on it. So, don’t freak out, k?
