This might be L’Oréal Paris’s most glam campaign yet. The beauty brand rounded up all of its A-list faces for a brand-new lipstick launch, Collection Exclusive Pure Red. The best part? Each matte shade was matched and made specifically for the L’Oreal Paris “muses.”

Blake Lively has made headlines this year for her expanding lifestyle empire, Preserve, and has fashioned herself as kind of a humble foodie (yep, she made pal Beyoncé a “bee” birthday cake and hangs with Martha Stewart), but after chatting with the 27-year-old actress about her spot on our Best Dressed list, it’s clear that the field she’s an expert in is fashion.
“It’s such a passion of mine,” she tells PEOPLE. “That’s the reason I don’t have a stylist, not because I think I can do it better than any of these people, but because I just love it so much that it would be like handing over something.” And leave it to Lively to meld two of her favorite worlds: cuisine and couture. “It would be like making a cake and then handing it off to someone else to ice and decorate,” she explains. “Why would you do that?”
Working sans stylist truly lets Lively chart her own red carpet course. “I look at the whole story — I won’t say ‘journey’ because I saw Anna Wintour’s 73 Questions [Vogue] video (ed note: that’s the word Wintour wishes banned from fashion vocabulary) — when doing any sort of press tour or when doing multiple events, and say ok, how can I diversify these looks?” she says. “[I want] to make them exciting but also not totally manic.”
It’s time for our annual Best Dressed of 2014 reveal and the list definitely caused a few heated debates among editors. But in the end, we all agreed that these 11 ladies (yes, there was a tie this year!) nailed it when it came to their red carpet style. And we have a ton of photos to prove it. So who nabbed the top spot?
She also happens to be a street style queen, who recently released a smash hit that we can’t get out of our heads no matter how hard we try. If you guessed Taylor Swift, you’re right. Swift leads a pack of super-stylish ladies this year. You’re going to want to pick up the new issue of PEOPLE (on stands everywhere Friday) for a whole rundown of why she took the top spot, but for now, let’s also look at the rest of the ladies.

What happens when the sexiest women in the world (as hired by Victoria’s Secret) come up with a list of the sexiest women in Hollywood? A list that’s sexy to the nth power. Several Angels (including newlywed Behati Prinsloo, Candice Swanepoel and Lily Aldridge) filmed their big reveal of the list while shooting in some exotic location, and we’re sharing it with you exclusively. See who nabbed “Sexiest Lips,” “Sexiest Street Style,” “Sexiest #shorthairdontcare” (seriously!) and more, then read on for thoughts from Aldridge.
We can spend hours trying to decode everything on Blake Lively‘s new website, Preserve. (Okay, we probably have spent hours, there’s a lot to process.) You can tell the newly crowned lifestyle blogger and her team have put tons of thought and detail into every aspect of the venture. Today’s topic? The cryptic welcome video that appears on the homepage, which is meant to embody the homegrown “Main Street USA” mentality Preserve is trying to foster. And in the cryptic two-minute clip, we think we found something huge: A glimpse of Lively dancing around in — wait for it — her wedding dress! Read More
