Rihanna's Dip-Dyed Silver/Gray Ponytail Turns Heads At First Annual Diamond Ball

Okay....We admit that we picked on + pooh-poohed Zosia Mamet's unflattering, dyed silver strands recently, we have to eat crow, because superstar Rihanna makes the silver/gray do look totally amazing + fashion-forward.

 Here is how the beautiful singer looked head-on at last evening's First Annual Diamond Ball in Los Angeles.

Rihanna's makeup was GORGEOUS, along with the trendy cranberry lipstick. So bad-a**.

And when she turned around, she really turned heads with a dip-dyed silver/gray ponytail.

Alright, not our fave, but Rihanna makes it look so right:

Yes...those are silver/gray extensions, we are certain.

Would you wear this hair trend?

Not easy to find, but did we hunt down some faux gray ponytail clip-ins on Ebay.

Jenna Dewan-Tatum: From Frighteninging Facial Mask To Wow In White!

Well, we must admit....This is one, incredible, beauty make-over! 

Check out actress Jenna Dewan-Tatum just one day BEFORE a big, red carpet morning event.

Yep....there she is driving around L.A. on Tuesday, December 9th, in a frightening facial mask trying to obviously multi-task. People magazine claims that this is indeed, the pretty Jenna Dewan-Tatum.

Okay, now get ready for the stunning transformation!

Here is the mother of one, who just turned 34, wowing everyone at the The Hollywood Reporter's Women in Entertainment breakfast, held at Milk Studios, on Wednesday morning, December 10th.

Maybe a bit much for a day-time look?

Who cares. Girlfriend looks beyond gorgeous in a white, deconstructed lace dress by Austrian designer Manning Cartell.

And if you're small-busted like Jenna, this dress is made for YOU.

Kim Kardashian would look TOO busty in this number.

As far as skin care goes, we don't know the brand of facial mask Jenna is wearing, but there are lots of excellent beauty treatments out there to choose from.

It appears that Jenna's face is behind a deep hydration mask. You leave it on for about 45 minutes for a soft, smooth, radiant, tight complexion.

We found a similar-looking treatment here called, It Works! Deep Hydration Mask ($59).

Check out how you apply one of these scary-looking but effective, facial masks here on YouTube.

VS Angel Doutzen Kroes Keeps Skin Tone Pretty Wih This BB Cream

Dutch beauty Doutzen Kroes is famous for her sexy role as a Victoria's Secret angel. And yes, she is tall + thin, but in a healthy way.

This is what Doutzen told UK's The Telegraph just last year:

 "I'm not a sample size at all," she says. "At some shows I know they have been using very young girls who have not gone into the change of the body yet -- no hips, no boobs. I'm 28 and I've had a baby. I have a woman's body, and once in a while you run into the fact that things are not fitting the way they should be."

Meantime, the VS model hates wearing makeup when she isn't doing the model thing. Instead, Doutzen prefers a little BB cream to achieve a balanced, pretty, skin tone.
Her fave:
L'Oreal Paris Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream Anti-Redness ($10.99, at drugstores).

"When I'm off duty, I keep it light. I like BB cream from L'Oreal."

It's a multi-tasking beauty product that performs 4 great things for skin:
Hydrates, Corrects, Perfects, Neutralizes.

Lancome And Now Givenchy: Julia Roberts Lands Androgynous Ad Campaign For Tisci

Hey at age 47, which is considered too old to model anything, actress Julia Roberts is truly defying the odds.

The Academy Award winner has just landed the much-coveted role of the new face of Givenchy. Not bad for a non-model, who happens to have what some might call, "model looks."

If you're thinking Julia's trademark huge, friendly smile nailed the awesome gig for her, well, you might be wrong. Sure, this is how we all normally recognize the star:

But this isn't the fashion/beauty approach Givenchy's Riccardo Tisci was aiming for. The Italian design genius is almost wiping away Julia's feminine sexuality. Instead, Tisci is downplaying her image with a more unisex appeal for Givenchy's 2015 Spring/Summer ad campaign:

More like Julia Roberts "unplugged," or raw Julia Roberts.
“She has the most beautiful smile in the world and I love it, but it’s Julia’s sensibility that interests me,” Tisci says, in a Yahoo Style interview. “For me, the Julia in these pictures is the real one you see every day. They’re really honest portraits of her.” 
“People want to see Julia in the way she is on screen, but in real life she’s much more tomboyish, no make up,” he says. “This was an iconic moment because she is an icon.”
Julia Roberts is NO stranger to the elegance + beauty of Givenchy. She has worn a number of these designs at major red carpet events.

Zosia Mamet Asks for Attention In Aging, Dyed Silver Hair

Sometimes you just ask WHY?

Zosia Mamet, star of television's "The Girls," showed up on the red carpet of the movie premiere, "A Most Violent Year" on Sunday night, looking a lot older than her young 26 years.

Yep...the actress appeared to be in her 50s, as she debuted newly dyed, silver or gray hair. got Zosia a bit of attention, but she looked well, old or older but with wrinkle-free, smooth skin.

When you are young and certainly in your 20s, it's FUN to go CRAZY with kooky beauty/fashion looks. So, at her youth, maybe Zosia is saying:

"Gray hair....Don't care!"

It's just silly. Same with the lilac locks + blue-toned mane on Kelly Osbourne + Nicole Richie.

We think Zosia looks lovely with lighter but blonder hair, even with the heavy, dark roots

Maybe we're envious, because we went gray in our 20s like Jennifer Lopez has admitted. And some of us spend lots of $$$ + time trying to  HIDE the silver.

But if you are HOT on this silver hair trend and want to go for it solo at home, then check out YouTube. We found this demo by Nicole Skyes.

Good luck!

Colorful Smoky Eye? Then Tone Down Lips With Nude Says Pat McGrath

If you know makeup and fashion, then you've obviously heard of the legend, Pat McGrath.

And although this amazing artist doesn't wear much makeup herself, she sure knows how to spot trends, create them, and of course, make up some of the most famous faces around.....Madonna, Oprah, Naomi Campbell etc., etc.

And the top design houses like Dolce & Gabbana,  Prada, Christian Dior, Louis Vuitton and Gucci—all count on her for runway shows and campaigns, according to the WSJ online.

Pat is also CoverGirl's Global Creative Design Director.

Pat's incredible cosmetic work is featured in the December issue of Cosmopolitan magazine.
In the beauty lay-outs, Pat plays around with the colorful smoky eye, in richbold hues like green, cobalt + red shadows.

As far as the lips's NUDE, all the way:

"I like to balance a colorful smoky eye with creamy nude lips," Pat explains. And she used this one on the 3 models:

CoverGirl Colorlicious Lipstick in Caramel Kiss ($6.99,

Maybe it's Pat McGrath's makeup magic, but this NUDE looks gorgeous!

Definitely, one of the better nude lip shades out there.

Great beauty tip, Pat!

Loving Chrissy Teigen's Blonder, Layered Hair

Some women look sexy either blonde or brunette. And that is NOT easy to pull off.

Julia Roberts does the beauty transformation brilliantly....And now model Chrissy Teigen shows us all, that brunette-to-blonde is simple + glam!

Plus, the Sports Illustrated cover girl stunner also got a cute, shorter layered hairstyle.

LOVIN' it!

It started out a bit more ombre with darker roots at her crown, but presently, we think she's gone even lighter.

Here's the happy wife of singer John Legend in the summer of 2013 with her signature darker brunette, longer locks.

Chrissy is lovely either way, but we prefer her blonde, even though that is NOT her natural base.

Celeb colorist Rita Hazen gave Chrissy the new, honey blonde ombre look in late November, and then we think Chrissy amped it up a bit more in blondness.

Ombre is STILL beauty-worthy.

If you want to try ombre highlights in a very subtle way to start, then pick up this by L'Oreal Paris Superior Preference Ombre Touch ($11.99, at Target).
