Jay Z and Beyonce may have created the greatest trailer ever! “Run” shows the story of two lovers Bey & Jay tangled in a web of money, guns, and crime with a star studded cast. The only catch is this movie will never be produced! It’s very Bey-Z to give the public a movie they never knew they wanted. We can only hope now that maybe they will cave to all the pressure and make “Run” into a real movie!
While we’re lounging in our relaxed weekend gear, the ladies of the Cannes International Film Festival have been bringing their fashion A-game to the red carpet. Amongst our favorites this weekend? Three dazzling choices by Salma Hayek, Jessica Chastain and Jennifer Lawrence. Though Hayek chose a straightforward strapless silhouette for the premiere of Saint Laurent, the intense pink by Saint Laurent, aptly, really packed the punch. Plus, the look was in the details. Rather than overly fancy accessories, she chose a black leather studded clutch from the design house. And with the seaside location, her loose highlighted curls were a smart finish. (But it wasn’t all about looks for the actress. Hayek took the red carpet opportunity to support the missing Nigerian schoolgirls by holding up a sign that read: #BringBackOurGirls.) Chastain, meanwhile, also knew her way around the color wheel. For the premiere of her latest film The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby, the red-haired beauty played up her assets. Wearing an asymmetrical Atelier Versace gown in vivid blue, Chastain was prime example of how to dress for one’s complexion and hair-color. Plus, the gentle draping at the waist, matching Roger Vivier heels and soft Old Hollywood waves added just the right touch of refined elegance. Last but certainly not least, JLaw’s look was no-fuss but hit all the right notes for a film party. To celebrate The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part I, the actress wore a layered ensemble just breezy enough for the occasion. Lawrence donned a Dior cobalt tank dress under a sheer, flowy gown. The wow factor? The contrasting emerald green Irene Neuwirth earrings that were an unconventional but smashing pick. Looking for more red carpet fashion highlights?

Replicating the hair of an icon is no easy task, especially when said icon is former Princess of Monaco and Oscar-winning actress Grace Kelly. Much of the upcoming film Grace of Monaco (with Nicole Kidman as Kelly) depicts the star’s life as a newly-appointed royal in the 1960s and so hairstylist Agathe Dupuis went about recreating several of Kelly’s glamorous looks with the help of her styling essentials: Leonor Greyl hair products.
In addition to princess-worthy looks, Dupuis kept men’s hair in place for party scenes, such as the Red Cross Ball, with the brand’s Gel a l’Hibiscus ($ 35; leonorgreyl-usa.com), and often relies on Tonique Hydratant ($ 43) and Algues et Fleurs ($ 35), which she claims “are very practical while filming, and give the actors’ hair good texture.” The stylist’s go-to, however, was the Éclat Naturel ($ 46), a nourishing styling cream “which I use for everything from scalp massages to the treatment of the ends of the hair. I can leave it all day long on the hair of the actors, it is perfect!”

Spring is here and it’s time to shake off the blah of winter by making a statement! This year you can do more than just say how you feel you can wear it too. In this post I am going to introduce you to some great graphic tops and printed leggings from rue21 that will help you express exactly what you want to say. Whether its lovey dovey, silly, patriotic or even hungry there something for everyone! Let’s get started!
1. A creamy, neutral eyeliner. Depending on your hair and eye color, as well as your skin tone and personal preference, this could be a pale taupe, a deep brown, a medium gray, or a deep, dark black. Keep some cotton swabs on hand to smudge the line you draw, buffing it out ever so slightly. Continue reading

The Coca-Cola by OPI collection features nine new shades inspired by Coke’s most popular beverages, including Coca-Cola Red (above, left; inspired by the original), Today I Accomplished Zero (above center; inspired by Coke Zero), and My Signature is “DC” (above, right; inspired by Diet Coke). There are also colors based on Sprite and Fanta products. “These two iconic brands truly deliver happiness in a bottle, whether it’s a refreshing, invigorating sip of Coke or a set of fingers and toes perfectly polished with OPI nail lacquer,” Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI co-founder and executive vice president, said of the collaboration. The nine colors will be available in nail lacquer and gel formulas in June.

As the face of Dior, Jennifer Lawrence has had a long-standing relationship with the brand. In the past year, we’ve witnessed the actress in a nonstop a parade of Dior gowns, couture and otherwise, on the red carpet. In fact, we had seen so much of Lawrence in Dior (falling in Dior, accepting awards in Dior, sitting front row at Dior, posing for Dior) that we could barely remember a time when she wasn’t contractually obligated to wear the label. And that’s why we were so taken aback when she broke her streak and hit the world premiere of X-Men: Days of Future Past on Saturday in a non-Dior dress (only Lawrence could rock headlines for playing designer switcheroo!).
The actress stunned all when she stepped out in a slinky velvet jacquard bias-cut Jason Wu slip gown that molded to her every curve. She further amped up the sensuality by pairing the rich fabric with dark, moody accessories, like Ana Khouri jewelry and a black Kotur clutch. What’s more, she even debuted a new hairstyle: a deep-parted style with her longer strands slicked to one side.
It’s definitely a new look for Lawrence, and it’s one we can get behind (though after much deliberation). It could be the beginning of a whole new aesthetic or simply a one-time fluke. As to whether she’ll experiment with other brands or resume her Dior run, we’ll just have to wait until her next red carpet appearance.
In the meantime, take a look back at all her looks on and off the red carpet.
In preparation for this week’s new episode of @OrphanBlack, we chatted with Costume Department Set Supervisor Peter Webster to get an exclusive inside look at what sets the clones apart fashion-wise. Click through the gallery for the behind-the-scenes details about what goes into creating the three main different looks, and to find out why Peter says “the differences between Sarah, Alison, and Cosima are stylistically worlds apart.”

In a perfect world, we’d all have copious amounts of time to get our hair professionally coiffed, our nails meticulously polished, our eyebrows (and other hair that we won’t mention) plucked and waxed—the list is endless.
Booking and going to those beauty maintenance appointments used to be a hassle but a slew of new beauty service apps and sites have made things much more convenient. With the click of a button (or a swipe!), you can book any number of desired services and then just wait for your professional to ring your doorbell! Here are our faves:
Founder Anna Santeramo started the app to help busy women book services at times that would work with anyone’s schedule, including last-minute appointments. With Stylebee, you can schedule an appointment at your home or office in as little as 2 hours. The app then matches you up with a Stylebee professionals nearby, who then bring their own tools to do the job at your requested location for a fee. The services currently offered are: blowout ($ 50), updo ($ 85), makeup ($ 85), and massage ($ 150) in San Francisco or Los Angeles, with New York launching soon. It’s available for download on iPhone or Android.
Best friends and co-founders Lauren Katzberg and Julia Carmona bonded over a shared conundrum while getting their M.B.A.s at the University of Chicago—as women of a certain age, the number of weddings each had to attend piled up and they often needed to get their hair and makeup done prior to the weddings. They found booking a talented stylist to be a challenge and were unwilling to endure one more makeup counter experience gone wrong. Thus, Katzberg and Carmona built TheStylisted.com—an online platform that allows you to book in-home hair styling and makeup application from a network of vetted beauty professionals. It’s currently available in New York and Chicago and will be available in Los Angeles in October. Prices vary depending on stylist and service.
For those of you fashion fiends who want to recreate fashion’s hottest makeup or hair trends, what’s a better place to turn to than Paris? Get excited: The city’s hottest beauty booking app, Byoutik, is finally launching in the U.S.! They’re coming to the New York area this fall, and have plans to expand into other cities. The app aims to help users experience star treatment with personal pampering sessions. You can book anything from manicures, haircuts, waxing, makeup application, and massages (or all of the above!). Appointments can be done with trends like statement hair (think braids or the wet look), nail art (like 3D accents), and crazy makeup (try bedazzled eyes).
For even more beauty house-call apps pick up the June issue of InStyle, available on newsstands and for digital download May 16.
Queen Bey has gone brunette! While the warmer spring temps have most stars lightening their strands, Beyoncé took things in the opposite direction by swapping her platinum hue for a warm chestnut shade. The star’s solid blond quickly became her trademark after she debuted the look back in 2010, and upon returning to her roots four years later, she still looks #flawless as ever.
Beyoncé watched her mother run a salon since she was young, so it isn’t surprising that she’s open to taking serious hair risks. While she was working on her self-titled visual album, the star shocked all of us with her short pixie, and has no problem telling her glam squad exactly what she wants. “I grew up in my mom’s hair salon, so I’m a frustrated hairstylist,” she previously joked to InStyle. “My stylist always tells me: ‘Can you just sit down and let me do my job? I don’t tell you how to sing.’” Looks like girls really do run the world—and Beyoncé is the one calling the shots at the salon!
