Don't Worry, Ladies: You Can Make VS Model Cleavage: See Lily Aldriche's Before + After

We think a good, push-up bra is a worthy investment for most of us. The right bra offers support, shape, lift and this little perk:


Yes. You CAN create cleavage, even when you have small breasts to begin with.

Most people, especially men, believe that ALL the Victoria's Secret + Sports Illustrated models are big-busted. Maybe there are a handful.

But most of these stunning models are the proud owners of a small bustline. And we mean SMALL.

And to prove our point.....Here is gorgeous VS + Sports Illustrated beauty Lily Aldriche in a bikini top + shorts in Miami yesterday at a photo shoot.

Now---here is the lovely Lily in a recent VS runway show.

Wow! What an amazing bra!
To us, Lily Aldriche is pretty in the Before and as well as the After photos.

But we think the point has been proven:

Just like the hair extensions so many celebs walk around in, NOT everything is genuine in the worlds of fashion + beauty.

So---Is that a good thing or  a bad thing.

Do Most Stylish Celebrities Wear Hair Extensions? Kim Kardashian Took Hers Out, Again!

We're starting to believe that MOST female stars wear extensions. And that MOST female stars who do wear long, faux hair all really have shoulder length hair, at best.

Here's Kim Kardashian in Paris yesterday. This is her REAL hair length.

We were a bit shocked to see it so short and MINUS the perfect volume and hold. But there it was...a layered, shorter mane. And we're glad she showed it to the world.

Now here are 2 photos of the famous reality star arriving in Paris earlier , prior to removing her hair extensions.
This hairstyle featured locks that were INSTANTLY longer with at least twice the length.

Wow, what a major difference. 

Even ageless Christie Brinkley at 60, admits that she, too, wears faux hair. In fact, she sells her own popular hair extensions line---Hair2Wear.

This is why the iconic model adores clip-in extensions:

"It used to take a stylist hours to give me extensions. Now it takes me two seconds! They're so light and natural...I clip them in and forget they’re there! After skiing or a yoga class, I pull this out of my bag and do a quick fix in the ladies room. Instant volume. Instant glamour!" – Christie

Sometimes, perfection can be bought, and put on that evening.

Statement Necklace Still Strong For Spring 2014--Get Yours Cheap!

You CAN spend a lot of $$$ on a statement necklace.

Sure, great ones will set you back about a hundred bucks, and really sparkling, genuine statement necklaces can cost you in the thousands.

But you can COPY the look on the cheap, and we mean, CHEAP!

And these inexpensive, statement necklaces look stunning, too. But since they are not even gold or silver-plated, these trendy chains + charms might only last about a year. But so be it; it's still fun to get your sparkle on!

Check out these fashionable celebrities making their OWN statement. And these eye-catching necklaces look glam with a casual tee, too. You don't have to be on the red carpet to add a little zing to your spring style.

Kate Beckinsale

Shay Mitchell

Olivia Palermo
Stores like Forever 21 have tons of the statement necklace style. Here's a pretty example and it's ONLY $10.80!

Kendall And Kylie Dress In All Black Hippie Chic To Make Coachella Their Own

Kendall. Kylie. Coachella.. Er....Koachella, possibly.

The K-sisters were out + about once again at the Coachella music festival in Indio, California.

The Jenner sisters stood out in a sea of denim with their sexy, all black hippie chic fashion.

A lot of people are going to hate the look, but we thought Kendall + Kylie brought a creative fashion edge to the 3-day, celebrity-packed, music festival.

The close sisters held hands as they made their way through the crowds with a watchful bodyguard in tow.

Kendall grabbed plenty of attention in a black lace, open  maxi cardigan with crop bandeau top + high-waisted black shorts. The aspiring model added studded sandal flats and a bindi decorating her forehead + brows.

Younger sister Kylie, who takes more fashion chances, was photograped in a 2 piece, black lacy bandeau top + shorts + combat boots. She wore elaborate coin + cross necklaces, and her 2-toned hair was in a short ponytail with a black, silk flower headband of sorts on top.

We LOVE Kylie's statement necklace ensemble.
And we also like Kendall's ode to Lorde's wild, hippie hair.
Want hippie hair, too?

Then pick up a bottle of sea salt spray, and get busy!

Lady Gaga Like Possibly Cher And Other Celebs Uses Face Lift Tape For Public Events

At the young age of 28, we are shocked to learn that Lady Gaga practices a beauty trick that older celebs have used for decades in Hollywood.

We're talking about face lift tape.

Does such a quick-fix exist?

Yes, and celebs are always a few steps ahead of the rest of us when it comes to looking forever youthful.

But seriously...Does Gaga need to pull an already young, tight face back even tighter?

Well, she seems to think so, as she revealed to the Brit publication, Daily Mirror:

"When I have my wig cap on and I'm taping my face, it's sort of meditation for me. Every day. It starts the same way, It's like a mantra."

Gaga goes on to add: "I wash my face, pin my hair back and put on a wig cap and I ask, 'How am I going to form my eyes today with this tape? How will I pull my neck back with tape?"

We admire the singing superstar's honesty, but we really don't think she needs to go to that silly extreme, at least not at age 28. She does have a nice complexion to begin with.

Lady Gaga won't be the first or last Hollywood celeb to use face lift tape for a taut skin, quick-fix.

Some say Cher has done it for performances, and they claim here's the proof in these 2-year-old photos:

We see something possibly along the neck and sides of Cher's face, but NOT certain that is facelift tape.

The legendary star turns 68 on May 20th, so props to ya, Cher! We don't care how you're turning back time, so to speak, but you're doing a good job.

Rosehip Oil Capsules: Apply Nightly For Youthful, Healthy Complexion

 Most beauty products promise LOTS of amazing results, and most of us can get pretty frustrated when the product, usually quite expensive, doesn't deliver on all fronts.

That's why, it's often encouraging to learn about natural beauty remedies, and how these organic formulas can work just as effectively as the $100 plus products you've sank your hard-earned dollars into.

So let's take a look at rosehip oil. That one's been around for many generations.

Without getting too scientific, we can tell you that rosehip oil is extracted from the seeds of wild rose bushes predominantly grown in Chile. Studies have shown that rosehip oil has excellent wound-healing properties and essential  fatty acids that supposedly spur cellular activity + hydration. That means scars improve, skin tone is more balanced, and fine lines + wrinkles smooth out over time.

Supermodel Miranda Kerr LOVES rosehip oil:

"I like to wear rosehip oil at night," the Victoria’s Secret model said. "It’s full of many antioxidants and it really works on a cellular level too to rejuvenate the skin. I put that on at night and I wake up glowing."

Hmmm. Does that mean we, too, can wake up to supermodel skin?

Well, who knows?

Rosehip oil cannot harm your complexion. But if you have acne at the moment, don't apply the oil until your break-outs have disappeared. Very oily skin and rosehip oil don't always work well together.

Waleda features organic rosehip oil packed into convenient, tiny capsule form: ($40, 30 capsules).

Duchess Of Cambridge Kate Wows New Zealand With 1970's High Ponytail Glamour

Duchess of Cambridge Kate looked tres chic once again, as she wowed the Blenheim, New Zealand crowd that had gathered to greet her and Duke of Cambridge William at a wreath-laying ceremony.

Kate wore a classic, robin's egg blue belted Alexander McQueen coat.

Her makeup was soft + warm with a rosy lip and cheek, and mascara with a light blue/gray eye shadow.

But let's talk about Kate's crowning glory! She has the most amazing, healthy, thick hair. And we strongly believe that she is extensions-free.
We LOVED the retro style--- a 1970's high ponytail. It's a glam, polished look with hair swept back in a lopped ponytail. Kate's personal hairdresser Amanda Cook Tucker fashioned the style.
Kate looked every bit the duchess.

Gotta love the 1970's high ponytail. This reminds us so much of beautiful Lynda Carter who wore the high ponytail on her "Wonder Woman" television series. It's NOT a severe ponytail, but one that is high + a bit poofy in back.

Would you wear the 1970's high ponytail?

If your hair is long + straight, you're good to go! You CAN copy this classic look.
