Rihanna Sets An Edgy Summer Style: Cool White Leather Moto Jacket!

Who doesn't love a bad-a** leather moto jacket?

Make it in cool white and you've got a great-looking style.

Superstar Rihanna did just that, as she stepped out in Zurich, following her latest Diamonds world tour performance.

Looks AMAZING---classic + ultra-cool!

You can copy Rihanna's style, too.

We found a great look-a-like faux leather white moto jacket at Forever21 for $34.80!

So cute with multiple-zippered pockets and  a big off-center zipper like Rihanna's.
What do you think?

Is this a good look or not?

Carmen Electra's Elegant One-Sided Cornrows

If you have long hair or extensions, and look great with a severe side-part, then you can copy Carmen Electra's elegant one-sided cornrows.

We LOVE this hairstyle. Maybe it's because Carmen looks so sexy wearing it.

We think it's even lovelier than the popular, shaved one-sided hairstyle!

We like the super-tight urban, edgy style!

Would you rock this hair-do?

If we could look this glam, we would!

Heavy Foundation? No Way For Mad Men's Sexy Christina Hendricks

We all know that Mad Men's Christina Hendricks is one sexy lady.

But did you ever notice her pretty, healthy complexion?

Seriously, girlfriend has a smooth, even skin tone.

So, what's Christina's makeup secret?

Well, it isn't full-coverage foundation.

That's TOO heavy for those HOT summer days.

Christina prefers a much lighter touch:

Smashbox Color Correcting Primer, hers in Color Adjust Green ($38, at Sephora).

"I'm very fair, with pink undertones," Christina says.

"And this evens me out enough that I don't even wear foundation in the Film!" She's talking about How to Catch a Monster.

The green in Smashbox'  Color Correcting Primer does an amazing job of hiding the redness.
And from the up close + personal photo of Christina, we think it works beautifully.

Want Sculpted Arms For Summer? Try The Jersey Shore Snooki Method Of Training

We don't care how you get there, but if flipping over huge tires can give you sculpted sexy arms, then....'Just do it," as the famous Nike saying is telling you.

We like to fool around with 7 lb. dumbbells to get our biceps + triceps toned. But hey-----moving around very large tires can also show results.

Just look at 'Jersey Shore' reality star Snooki. The proud mama has been on a fitness tear for months now, and all the hard work + dedication is paying off.
The 25-year-old Mama to baby Lorenzo REALLY gets buff by flippin' tires:

 "How I start my Saturdays," she explained recently on her Instagram. "Buns and guns."

 Snooki is  training with New Jersey-based fitness expert Anthony Michael. She  is proud of her new athletic body, as she tweeted yesterday.
"Everyone's saying the 'new fit me' isn't what I'm suppose to look [like]," she wrote. "I wasn't always a fatass, kids. Get used to my fit life, cause I love it!"

Bravo to you, Mama Snooki!!

Serena Williams Shows Off Colorful Manicure At Wimbledon's All-White Protocol

Tennis great Serena Williams CANNOT live with out an amazing mani + pedi. You might think the U.S. defending champ wouldn't even have time to think about doing her nails, but you would be so wrong!

She once admitted this:

"No one likes getting their nails done more than I do . . . I go every four days to get a manicure and every seven days for a pedicure."

And now the ace is putting on a great show of fashion sense right down to her fierce orange manicure on center court. Each tip was so stylish--diamante encrusted to animal print to  'pow!'.

The Wimbledon protocol calls for and enforces its rule of "only allowing players to wear white."
However, the Brits are bending the rules this time around, and other players are also debuting colorful manis.

Take a look at Wimbledon's usual protocol:

"Predominately in white rule introduced in 1963.  'Almost entirely in white rule' introduced in 1995.  Clothing submitted to Club for comment earlier in year.  Both Grand Slam and WTA rules stipulate recognised tennis attire.  Decision on the day as to whether clothing/players' turnout is suitable at discretion of Referee.  Guidelines: 
    No solid mass of colouring
    Little or no dark or bold colours
    No fluorescent colours
    Preference towards pastel colours
    Preference for back of shirt to be totally white
    Preference for shorts and skirts to be totally white
    All other items of clothing including hats, socks and shoes to be almost entirely white

Hitting The Beach: We All Need A Really Excellent Eye Cream

If you believe eye creams are only for OLDER women, like those OVER 40, think again.

Everyone needs to apply an eye cream, because that part of the face ages rapidly. The skin under the eyes, and all around the eyes for that matter, is dry, thin + delicate.

Then consider all the sun our eyes come in contact with daily, and you get the picture.

There are gazillions of eye creams out there. It's best to find one with a retinoid. This potent Vitamin-A derivative can do a few great things:

1.  Improve under eye circles, so they look lighter.

2.  Help smooth out under eye bags + firm up the skin.

3.  Diminish the appearance of fine lines + wrinkles.

We like this eye cream. No, NOT so cheap, but it comes from a very reputable skin care line:

Philosophy Miracle Worker Retinoid Eye Repair Cream ($65, at Macy's).

A retinoid formula can be tough to handle, so if eye area is sensitive, apply at night.

We like retinoid formulas because they encourage cell turnover and tighten things up. But go easy on the cream at the beginning. A little dab goes a long way.

Hot Summer Means Time For Bright Fuchsia Pedicure!

Nothing says SUMMER quite like a bright, pretty pedicure!

Maybe you've already let your adorable toes do the talking. If not, it's time to choose a colorful shade to paint those t-nails.

We just happen to LOVE fuchsia. No, those cute toes are not ours (Just thought we would clarify that).

We like Sally Hansen's Complete Salon Manicure in Back to the Fuchsia ($6.98, at

Pretty, huh?

Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure is a great one, because it lasts + lasts, without chipping!

Here's how the company describes it:

"Don't settle for just color when you can get a base coat, strengthener, growth treatment, salon-inspired color, top coat, chip-resistance and a gel finish all in 1 bottle. Featuring the unique precision brush for a flawless finish and patented Vita Care technology for advanced 10 day wear, more shine and nourishing care."

We think this bright, little bottle is worth the $$$.

Designer L'Wren Scott's Beauty Tip For Super Smooth Skin All Over The Body

L'Wren Scott is one busy businesswoman! And we can see why. Lots of celebrities wear her incredible designs:

Penelope Cruz. Nicole Kidman. Madonna. Sarah Jessica Parker. Oprah. And the A-list goes on + on.

Plus, the super tall, dark-haired beauty shares a lot of time with partner Mick Jagger, the legend himself, so L'Wren keeps to a sharp schedule.

L'Wren enjoys a good, lengthy soak in the bath in the late evening as she recently revealed to Harper's Bazaar magazine.

And she uses an inexpensive, cult fave to keep her whole body hydrated:

"I unwind with a long bath, some reading, and a big piece of chocolate cake.

"For the bath, I use Avon Skin So Soft Bath Oil. It's great—you put it in your bath, as much as you want, and you get out, put on your dressing robe, and you let it soak in. Your whole body feels incredible."

That's a wonderful beauty tip! And so cheap---Avon Skin So Soft Original Bath Oil ($16, 24 fl. oz.).

"Contains Jojoba Oil. Experience crisp botanicals and fresh herbals. TO USE: Fill tub, pour in desired amount, immerse yourself until shoulders are covered. For added moisture, apply directly to wet skin. 24 fl. oz. "

We will have to take another look at Avon's Skin So Soft. Sounds like a good way to keep the body soft + moisturized.

Meantime, check out L'Wren Scott's website!

Copper Shadow: Marvelous Metallic Lids For Summer

Copper lids + lots of black mascara/liner = a sexy summer makeup trend!

We've been seeing plenty of copper shadow these days at red carpet events....And we LIKE it!

Okay, wearing a metallic like copper isn't always flattering to every single woman on the planet, but we think it's worth a whirl. If it looks that badly, then don't wear it just because it's a hot summer trend.

We LOVE the bronze lid cat-eye that J. Mendel gave the models at NY Fashion Week several months ago. You definitely need to add black liner + mascara to let your eyes really stand out with copper lids.

It's crazy-glam, when applied beautifully like this:

We've found you 2 copper makeups to try:

1. NARS Duo Eyeshadow in Isolde ($34, at
2. Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Scorch ($19, at Sephora).
We think that copper shadow is a MUST-TRY this summer!

Adele's Envious Peaches+Cream Complexion Secret: The Perfect Primer

A lot of people admire British beauty Adele for her incredible vocals. Others love Adele for her big, amazing hair. And some of us envy the U.K. singer for her peaches + cream complexion.

Adele has lovely, healthy, clear skin!
Of course, like most famous folks, Adele has a super team of hair + makeup people ready to adorn her for the red carpet. And these pros ALWAYS have some excellent beauty secrets.

So, how does Adele's complexion look so flawless?!

 Her makeup artist Troy Suratt says it's-- all in the perfect primer. And his choice is expensive La Mer:

La Mer The Concentrate ($290, 1 oz).

Why is this so special?

The La Mer formula works FAST to iron everything out with its reparative marine/plant ingredients. But he uses it as a step in the makeup routine.

"Apply it as a primer," Troy advises.

He often uses the luxurious skin care treatment on the British star. .
Troy massages the La Mer into Adele's skin to "eliminate puffiness around the eyes and increase circulation."

He adds that The Concentrate..."creates a smooth canvas for the foundation that allows makeup to last for hours."

Gisele Bundchen Practices What She Preaches: Yoga Does A Body Good!


There's model Gisele Bundchen practicing a little yoga alongside her precious little Vivian!

We've got to admit----it's a cute, if staged photo. She shared the pic on her Instagram page today.

Even so, we all know how Gisele, at age 32, keeps moving. She's athletic + toned, and has ALWAYS praised the practice of yoga.
Yeah...we all hate to admit it----Gisele looks in supermodel shape just 7 months after giving birth to baby Vivian.

Yoga does a body good, as most people would tell you.

Yoga keeps you slim + toned.

Check out our BeautyTipToday archive on the yoga shoulder stand and how it can keep you looking slim + trim forever!

Look at the Sarvangasana pose. It's a great beauty tip!

We bet Gisele knows how to practice this weight-normalizing pose!

And it REALLY works!

Eva's Ready To Romp: Are You Falling For The Summer Trend?

If you haven't noticed by now, rompers are HOT!

The adorable onesies are both playful and chic. Rompers are also quite sexy. Check out actress Eva Longoria  in her summer-ready style. She's wearing a navy blue romper with 3/4 sleeves and strappy tan sandals.

Eva looks gorgeous. It's all in good taste. Nothing  too revealing, either.

If you've waived the romper from your Summer 2013 closet, you might want to think again.

We found a couple of navy rompers like Eva's to try on.

Will you get Ready to Romp for this stylish summer trend?

Dolce Vita Blue Jaide Long Sleeve Romper (on SALE $185, at Shopbop)

New Silicone Breast Implants FDA-Approved: For Ages 22 And Up

We like the name of these brand new adult breast implants:


Ha ha.

What makes MemoryShape unique?

According to the manufacturer, Mentor Worldwide LLC, it appears to be a safer silicone implant. In a news release, Mentor states that the breast implant has been "clinically studied among 955 augmentation and reconstruction patients participating in an ongoing 10-year study".... After 6 years, the study has found a low rate of "adverse events" including rupture.

We like that the implant is available in a range of sizes and tear-drop shaped to resemble the natural shape of a breast. Plus, more importantly--"to rebuild breast tissue (reconstruction) in women of any age."

"It's important to remember that breast implants are not lifetime devices. Women should fully understand the risks associated with breast implants before considering augmentation or reconstruction surgery, and they should recognize that long-term monitoring is essential," says Jeffrey Shuren, M.D., director of the FDA's Center for Devices and Radiological Health.
"The data we reviewed showed a reasonable assurance of safety and effectiveness," says Dr. Shuren. "We will be looking at the results from post-approval studies that will focus on the implants' long-term safety and effectiveness."

No real explanation yet on why MemoryShape silicone breast implants are ONLY for adult women.

We believe this is welcoming news. With brand new FDA-approval of MemoryShape, there are now 5 FDA-approved silicone gel-filled breast implant products available in the U.S. manufactured by 3 companies: Allergan, Mentor and Sientra.

The more choices open to women in all aspects of life, the better it is.

Kim Kardashian Gives Birth Early Today To Baby Girl!! How Retin-A Can Help Post-Baby Body

Many blessings all around.

Congratulations to Kim Kardashian + Kanye West on the birth of their baby girl!

Sources say the reality star is resting comfortably after having her precious little one at 1:30 AM at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center this morning ... 5 weeks early, according to

There are  a lot rumors going around that it was a planned C-section, and yet, as we read from TMZ, a "natural birth.".

We're not sure how Kim K delivered her baby girl, we're just happy that both K-Mama + little one are doing well.

By the recent pics we had been seeing, it looked like the star was ready to pop out her baby ASAP!!

Kim Kardashian tried hard to be a glam pregnant gal, and we think she pulled it off pretty effortlessly. She took heaps of criticism for how she was dressing.

For Kim it's all about the pretty, and she tries for perfection every time. We hope she takes the time to enjoy her beautiful baby and not worry too much about the post-baby body.

For most women who have given birth, it's the stretch marks that REALLY get on their nerves.

 Research shows that  if you attack stretch marks early, then you can diminish their presence.

As long as you aren't nursing at the time, rubbing on Retin-A cream(tretinoin) can help FADE these bothersome lines:

"One study, conducted by Dr. Sewon Kang of the Department of Dermatology in the University of Michigan Medical Center, found that used daily for six months, tretinoin cream reduced the severity, length and width of 80 percent of the 10 women who used the cream, compared to one of 12 women who used an alternative cream."

Beauty Beyond 50 Isn't So Easy: Model Iman Is Leading The Pack

We wrote about actress Sandra Bullock yesterday, looking incredible in her 40s, 48 to be exact.

Now, let's take on the 50s. A woman's body is going through so much more, namely menopause. And that stage of life affects a lot of things resulting in:
weight gain
flabby tummy, hips
skin dryness
more wrinkles
thinner hair, etc.

But there are ways to keep it together. And model Iman is proof that age is just a number. In her case, 57 to be exact. Yup, this chick looks pretty darn good!! There she poses at the amfAR Cinema Against Aids gala ball at the famous Plaza Hotel in New York City last evening.

Now, many would probably argue that this iconic model has most likely achieved her ageless beauty through cosmetic surgery and or cosmetic dermatology.

Maybe. That could very well be true. But we don't find Iman artificial-looking.  She reportedly leads a clean, healthy life and it certainly shows.

Of coursethe long, elegant neck+ stunning bone structure helps Iman defy gravityAnd she's  always shown off such elegant, perfect posture with a toned, fit physique.

Okay, we're a big Iman fan. And every time we see her, she looks beautiful. Yes, a lot of it is styling with polished makeup + hair. Still, she's an excellent example of beauty beyond 50.
Maybe it's her makeup---ImanCosmetics.

Sandra Bullock Lights Up London As She Steps Out In Sexy Black Dresses

At age 48, actress Sandra Bullock can do NO wrong. The gorgeous star has never looked better! Just take a peek at the Academy Award winner as she stepped out for dinner at Nobu's last evening and just a few hours ago at the U.K. premiere of "The Heat" at the Curzon Mayfair in London:

We are lovin' the entire ensemble: The sexy dress, pin-straight hair parted down the middle (so Cher '70s), polished makeup + red stilettos! Wow---what a great date outfit!

And we also give thumbs up to her black sleeveless belted gown + strappy sandals for the movie premiere.

Check out the super sexy back of the gown. Sandy's flashing her bra to the world.

OMG! Go Sandy! Go Sandy!

Check out Sandra Bullock + Melissa McCarthy in the trailer for 'The Heat.'. .

Tempting Trend: Teal Eyeliner Under Lower Lashes Looks Lovely

We LOVE this easy, fresh new makeup trend:

TEAL eyeliner UNDER the lower lashline or directly in the waterline.

This is a HOT trend to try for Summer 2013!

It's a simple, glam look, and only requires a bit of teal liner.

You can go natural here, as we see on the model at Stella McCartney. Bare face with just an elegant teal line and a few coats of mascara.

In photo 2, we have model Cara Delevingne using the teal liner with lots of black mascara and bold dark brows with a bright lip.

Her eyes are mesmerizing! The teal puts those pretty peepers over the top!!
We like Urban Decay's 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Deep End ($19, at Sephora). It's a creamy teal liner.

And last but not least, model Karlie Kloss, in the last photo, shows off a teal waterline with soft makeup and rosy lip.

We like this teal trend. It's a sexy but subtle makeup to try on. You don't have to be a professional makeup artist to make this look good.

Will you try the tempting teal trend this summer?

Lauren Conrad's New Bangs: Will They Become Her Signature Look?


We happen to adore them. And take a look at reality star Lauren Conrad debuting her own blunt bangs on the July cover of Marie Claire mag. Gorgeous!

You either really like them, or can't stand the style. A lot of women get bangs and then tire of them quickly. But there are a bunch of famous beauties who have made bangs their signature look. Here are just a few:

Zooey Deschanel
Naomi Campbell
Taylor Swift

All 3 celebrities have made blunt bangs their ticket to success.

Bangs are HOT once again this summer.

Will you try on some pretty fringe?

Perricone Is Pricey But Photo Plasma Is All You Need This Summer!

Perricone Cosmeceuticals are NOT cheap, but the ingredients are formulated with advanced beauty science.

So here's another great Perricone skin care product that has been newly launched:

Perricone Photo Plasma ($69, at

We find this new skin care product to be quite interesting. First, it has an excellent SPF 30. So it's a luxurious facial sunscreen.

Next, Photo Plasma is full of  Vitamin C Ester and Alpha Lipoic Acid. These agents brighten the skin and iron away surface imperfections.

There's nothing greasy or heavy with this effective moisturizing cream.

We know.....$69 is expensive, but we think the Perricone brand is a smart one that shows results.

It's hard trying to hunt down a decent facial sunscreen. Photo Plasma is like the Cadillac of the bunch.

Would you spend $69 for a super facial sunscreen?

Sexy Amber Rose Trades In Signature Buzz-cut For Super Long Extensions

Say what you will, but we think Amber Rose is beautiful.

There's the sexy new mama showing off a long mane with lavender highlights.

We all know the Cape Verdian beauty by her signature blonde buzz-cut, but as we can see here, Amber decided to switch things up by trying on some super long extensions.

Top that off with lots of gorgeous lashes, brows and bold pink lips, and we think it all works together for the 29-year-old model.'s loud, but Amber Rose wears it well.

Amber is addicted to these lipsticks:

" I also love M.A.C Lip Glass in `Pink Lemonade', but my favorite lipstick is from Mona Lisa [shade `Hot Pink #14']. It's only $1.99!".
We found a tube of Pink Lemonade at Amazon for $25.

SJP Skinny Jeans Style: Cuff It Up, Baby!

The wide, single cuff. Do you like it?

SJP apparently does, again + again. Style icon Sarah Jessica Parker LOVES wearing her skinny jeans cuffed to show off  a little shin.

We think it makes the actress look longer + leaner. And when she sets the wide, single cuff off with her stilettos---the look is glam + sexy.

Take a peek at the photos we've found:

SJP has a lot to smile about these days.
She has just inked a super deal with shoe god Manolo Blahnik for a chic collection of shoes, handbags + trenchcoats.

The line will launch early next year, and be very appropriately called, SJP. Have $200 - $300 handy for a pair of SJP stilettos.

The glamorous mom-of-3 told this:

"We’re putting new colors together that people don’t typically do, just beautiful combinations that you wish existed in your closet. And in terms of bags, thinking about that period of the seventies into the eighties, what those women were carrying, taking away the bells and the whistles and hardware and really making it about the bag."

Read more about the SJP collection here.

We're excited about this one!
Are you?

Mad For Mod!! Black And White Awning Stripes Hot For Spring/Summer 2013!!

These ain't your mama's mod stripes.

Oh, no! It's mod madness in strong, sharp black + white stripes for Spring/Summer 2013! Designers Marc Jacobs, Stella McCartney + Michael Kors have all opted for the bold beauty of it.

And we've been seeing the head-turning style just about everywhere---from high-end to low-end.

Kim Kardashian has been captured in lots of paparazzi photos wearing the stripes, and two-toned black + white look for months now. The expectant reality star LOVES black + white fashion, and we must admit, Kim K wears it well.

When you put on the new black + white mod, get ready to be noticed, ladies. If you're kind of shy wearing it from head-to-toe, then try the big stripes in smaller doses---like a top or bottom or on accessories.

 Black + White Stripe Maxi Dress ($34, at

Cutout Back Striped Shirt ($22.80, at Forever21).

Rachel Zoe's Quick Beauty Tip For An Instant Eye Lift

Celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe has a clever solution to a common beauty problem:

Puffy eyes and/or bags and circles.

She likes Skyn Iceland Hydro Cool Firming Gel Pads ($30, at


We think the results look natural + effective on 41-year-old Rachel.

So, what's in Skyn?

These pads contain hydrolized elastin, a beauty ingredient that delivers an instant toning + firming effect on the delicate skin under the eyes.

The puffy eye busters are easy to use, too:

"Remove backing and apply gel side to under eye are for 10 minutes.
After treatment, gently peel away patch and follow with Icelandic Relief Eye Cream.
Use once a week or whenever you need a quick fix!"

Hey, we're all for the quick beauty fix!

How about you?

Would you shell out $30 for an instant eye lift?
