The Oscars are less than a week away, which means our office style and beauty pools are in full swing. Will Lupita Nyong’o wear bright shadow? Will Jennifer Lawrence go for a bold lip? Will Amy Adams wear her hair down or go for the updo? These are the very important questions we’re debating right now. So to get ready for Hollywood’s biggest night, our editors decided to take a look back at some of the most memorable beauty moments to hit the red carpet so far. Read More
What's Hot Now

Apparently the secret to nailing it at the Golden Globes Sunday was to have one very key accessory: a baby bump. We were raving about the looks seen on Drew Barrymore, Olivia Wilde and Kerry Washington, and it wasn’t just because they had that mom-to-be glow.
Olivia Wilde may have picked up enough tricks from movie sets and her Revlon gig to DIY a holiday makeup look at home, but that doesn’t mean she’s ready to go pro. Even she has her beauty hangups.
“I wish I could do a red lip, but I’m more comfortable with a bold eye,” the actress told PEOPLE while promoting the Revlon’s new Age Defying Collection in N.Y.C. “I know once I do the eye, it’s done. Inevitably, I’m going to eat something [or] kiss someone hello, so I mess up lipstick pretty much immediately. I still love playing with different shades of lipstick, but if I’m going to a holiday party, and I want to feel super-confident I’m doing a metallic eye.”
And, she adds, the key good to eye makeup is clean, well-shaped brows. “It changes your face so much when you have your eyebrows filled in and softened,” she said. “I spent years trying to look like Kate Moss with wispy thin eyebrows, which was a horrible mistake and everyone told me not to do it. So now I’m obsessed.”
If this Thanksgiving dinner is the first time you’re going to see Grandma in a few years, you may not want to break out the star beauty looks from our Obsessed or Hot Mess beauty debate video. But if you’re going clubbing with the cousins afterwards, that’s the perfect time to try the bold purple shadow, electric pink lips and monochromatic makeup seen on our favorite celebrites — and discussed by Senior Style Editor Zoë Ruderman and Style Director Andrea Lavinthal in the link above.
Is anyone else a little jealous of Olivia Wilde‘s life? Engaged to Jason Sudeikis. Baby on board (that kid is bound to be super good looking). Amazing style (we’re still not over this gown). The actress has a lot of good things going on right now. She opens up to the online magazine Editorialist about her charity fashion endeavors, those upcoming nuptials and yes, her mommy wardrobe. Luckily, we have an exclusive sneak peek at the interview. Read More

We figured after seeing the parade of jaw-dropping gowns at the LACMA Art + Film Gala we’d have a Best Dressed winner in the bunch, and we were totally right (don’t mind us, just patting ourselves on the back). In fact, we’re not even sure we’d have a Top 10 list this week without the event, as it was responsible for six of the most loved looks.
Leading the pack with a 95% approval rating was Kate Beckinsale in a stunning strapless Gucci gown that made her look like an Old Hollywood siren (we love the embroidered waist detail!). Plus, as usual, her hair gave us serious mane envy. And Olivia Wilde trailed closely behind in a Gucci halter dress that put all other maternity wear to shame.
Our favorite gown of the week rounded out the Top 10: Kate Hudson’s insane Gucci gown — actually, is it even considered a gown if it’s more of a blush skirt with two tiny strips of silver fabric? Regardless, she looked unreal, and we’d like to award her with an honorary Best Dressed title.
Which Kate did you prefer: Beckinsale or Hudson? Or do you think the title should go to someone totally different. Share your thoughts below!
