Nailed It: Emma Stone Does 'Modern Goddess' Right

Apr/10/2014 at 04:26 PM ET

Emma Stone Splash News Online (3)

Who: Emma Stone

Where: At the London premiere of The Amazing Spider-Man 2

What She’s Wearing: A marigold-yellow Atelier Versace dress with matching Swarovski crystal beading on the shoulders and waist, plus a David Webb necklace featuring two lion heads with emerald eyes

Why She Nailed It: If a picture is worth 1,000 words, then please allow this gif at left to provide 3,000 words for us while we gape at this truly showstopping ensemble. Until now, Stone’s been sticking to menswear-inspired outfits and mod minis on her press tour, so the impact of her hitting the carpet in this incredibly romantic, curve-skimming gown is doubled.

She wisely let the bold color and open back keep the focus, adding only a chic jeweled collar and delicate sandals. And the hair and makeup are on point; the siren waves and just-bright-enough lip give her a glamorous ’40s vibe that really works for her. In fact, if you turned these photos black-and-white, you might mistake her for a real old Hollywood star — but then we’d miss out on the stunning shade of the dress.

Tell us: What do you think of Stone’s outfit? Are you as big a fan as we are?

Jennifer Lopez‘s style and beauty parade on American Idol is just as captivating as the contestants’ performances. Okay, we exaggerate, but the superstar judge has been knocking it out of the park recently. Wednesday’s Top 8 show was dedicated to the ’80s, and Lopez totally went for the theme. (As did Keith Urban and his mullet). But her kinky side-swept voluminous tresses and bold shadow have editors at odds. Since hair, like love, is a battlefield, we had to debate the look below.

By now you’ve already seen all the gorgeous gowns from Sunday’s ACM Awards, so it’s time to talk about the most buzzworthy beauty moments. Let’s start with Carrie Underwood‘s amazing side-swept waves, because, well, they’re amazing.

We were so enamored of Underwood’s old Hollywood-inspired tresses, we had to get some more insight straight from her makeup artist and hair stylist of nine years, Melissa Schleicher. You may not have noticed, but the first step to her look was a subtle color change.

“Her hair is a bit darker now,” Schleicher explains. “She’s naturally blonde in the roots, and we hadn’t highlighted her hair in seven months — we just let it go. And then I took her to the salon, darkened her hair a shade and lightened the ends quite a bit for an ombré look.” Read More

Kelly Osbourne was one of the first stars to start the lavender hair craze, so it’s no surprise she decided to go for another trendy tress move — shaving part of her head. The TV host revealed a new summer-friendly do on Instagram, buzzing a section of hair above her left ear.

“Here is one pic of my new hair cut!!! What do you guys think? I’m also sporting the #SpringTrend and have no bottom mascara on! It looks weird I [love] it!!! check out my website to see more pics later this week!” she captioned the above photo on her feed. Read More

ICYMI: 3 Style Videos to Watch Now (Like Cara Delevingne's Hilarious Tutorial on 'Vibrating' Mascara)

Apr/04/2014 at 01:16 PM ET

It’s Friday, which means you’re probably counting down the hours until you can leave your office. So to make that wait a little bit easier, we rounded up some style videos that caught our attention. Seriously, watch these now then watch them again at brunch with your friends this weekend. You’re gonna wanna talk about ‘em.

Cara Delevingne likes to show off her silly (and sexy) sides on her Instagram feed. She’s not afraid to give fans a candid look at her life — and her latest video might be one of her best yet. The supermodel “regrammed” a clip from makeup artist Tom Pecheux, giving a behind-the-scenes peek at her glam process, and her “DIY” way of applying mascara. “#regram @tompecheux masCARA tips! Haters gonna hate, vibrators gonna vibrate I mean mascara hehehe #DIY #girlsbestfriend.” Anyone going to try out her method at home? Get back to us on that one.

Ellen DeGeneres addressed the whole Target Photoshop controversy in a totally Ellen DeGeneres way — by bringing the swimsuit model Tanya Marie Keller on her show to set the record straight. Her arms are just that long! Okay, fine, they’re not. Keller was a great sport about the whole thing, playing along with Ellen’s spot-on line of questioning (and even getting props involved).

On a more touching note, Dermablend’s latest campaign ads are so poignant you might want to have some Kleenex ready. The cosmetics brand has released a series of “Camo Confessions” starring “Zombie Boy” Rick Genest (you probably remember this spot), Cheri Lindsay, a college volleyball coach who suffers from the skin-pigment disorder vitiligo, and YouTube beauty star Cassandra Bankson, who is known for her miracle cover-up tutorials to mask her acne. Watch as they remove Dermablend’s foundation while explaining what the line’s concealer means for them, and prepare to get emotional.

Apr/04/2014 at 08:45 AM ET

Following her awards season chic streak — with some of the most memorable makeup looks on any red carpet — we figured it was just a matter of time until Lupita Nyong’o landed a big beauty campaign. Well, the moment has arrived: The Oscar-winning actress has just been tapped as the new face of Lancôme, following in the footsteps of Hollywood heavyweights including Julia Roberts, Kate Winslet and Penélope Cruz.

“I am truly honored to join the Maison Lancôme, a brand with such a prestigious history and that I have always loved,” she said in a statement. “I am particularly proud to represent its unique vision for women and the idea that beauty should not be dictated, but should instead be an expression of a woman’s freedom to be herself.” Her first campaign will launch this summer, and while we wait for the official unveiling, we looked back at some of the moments that made her such a beauty standout.
