Last night’s launch party for Choo.08 (a line of more practical, sporty footwear from Jimmy Choo) in Beverly Hills celebrated accessories, but there were also plenty of covetable beauty looks on display. Similar to shoe shopping, it’s hard to single out just one hairstyle or makeup move and label it my favorite, so I thought I’d feature all of the standout moments (like Solange Knowles’ tangerine liner, Sandra Choi’s buzzed crop, and Emmy Rossum’s inky eyes and inventive nail art) from the evening’s fete: Click here to see the slideshow.
A bold blazer and an even bolder lid look on Solange Knowles.
Make the most of your moons with evil eyes like Emmy Rossum.
…or try metallic navy shadow in lieu of basic black.

“Men aren’t attentive to girls who wear glasses,” claimed nearsighted knockout Pola Debevoise (played by Marilyn Monroe) in the 1953 classic How to Marry a Millionaire. But the conclusion of the movie—and multiple celebs sporting frames on the red carpet—proves otherwise. Male opinions aside, specs are having a serious style moment. Everyone from Lupita Nyong’o at the MTV Movie Awards to models this past season at Rodarte illustrate that wearing frames after dark is a beauty move worth trying. As chic as Jennifer Lawrence makes stumbling up the stairs look, seeing clearly and walking with confidence is always on trend. Here, a roundup of our favorite girls in glasses: Click to view the slideshow.
Rihanna was surprisingly understated. Rita Ora was predictably red. And Lupita Nyong’o made glasses look glamorous. Here, we count down the best beauty looks from last night: click to view the slideshow.
We’re all for experimenting with your beauty look, and Coachella always inspires a few hits and misses. (Suffice it to say, everyone has their own interpretation of “festival style.”) As for Kendall Jenner’s newest piercing? We don’t quite know what to think. Is it a repurposed earring? An homage to Indian wedding ceremonies? Or has Jenner simply gained a new sense of confidence after walking some of the top shows of Fall ’14? We may never know for sure. All jokes aside, we have to admit: We’re really just wondering how uncomfortable this must have been.
Between film premieres, parties, and celeb-studded events around the globe, this week was full of memorable hair and makeup looks (including Katy Perry’s emerald strands and Lupita N’yongo’s modern pouf). Here, we recap five more of our favorite beauty moves.
Kate Bosworth; Tiffany & Co.’s Blue Book Party; New York, NY
Kate Bosworth always adds something a little unexpected to her beauty look. At last night’s Tiffany & Co. party, she expertly teamed tangerine lips (à la Rag & Bone Spring ’14) with a powder puff pink gown.
Emma Stone; The Amazing Spider-Man 2 world premiere; London, England
Further proof that berry lips work all year-round—and we love how they complement Stone’s canary yellow dress.
Hilary Rhoda; Tiffany & Co.’s Blue Book Party; New York, NY
Sometimes it’s chic to match your makeup to your outfit. Hilary Rhoda’s icy blue shadow and navy sweater looked fresh—not retro—with a messy updo and nude gloss.
Diane Kruger; FX Networks Screening of Fargo; New York, NY
If anyone can pull off a frosted lip, it’s Diane Kruger. The actress opted for a toned-down version of Rodarte’s sparkling Fall ’14 beauty look, then added some depth with a smoky eye.
Constance Jablonski; Tiffany & Co.’s Blue Book Party; New York, NY
Jablonski may or may not have woken up like this. Smudged, lived-in liner and a messy pony looked effortless and sexy for a night on the party circuit.
