For the 2009 Screen Actors Guild Awards, Anne Hathaway donned a beautiful white Grecian-inspired dress with gold detail at the neckline and waist. Celebrity makeup artist Kate Lee created a dramatic smokey eye by applying dark eyeliner to the upper lash line and blended it on the eyelid.
This year at the 15th Annual SAG Awards, Best Supporting Actress winner Kate Winslet accessorized her gorgeous Narciso Rodriguez gown and dazzling Chopard jewels with a little help from Fekkai, Lancome, Avon and Serge Lutens.
Kate’s glamorous low bun and side swept bang were created by Frederic Fekkai stylist Renato Campora using Fekkai products. To get the look, apply More All Day Density Styling Whip to wet hair for added volume. On the bottom portion only apply Coiff Magnifique Ultra-Light Finishing Creme to ends for a smooth blowout and to protect hair from the heat of styling tools. Using the Large Round Brush, blow dry hair and part on the right side. Once completely dry, use a one inch curling iron throughout hair to create tousled movement with dimension. Apply Technician Glaze to ends working it through with fingers for texture that is not too heavy. Tease the top of the head – ever so slightly – to create a touch of height. Next pull hair back into a low ponytail. Create a loose braid and twist it around to form a bun. Secure with pins. Making a braid helps to keep the bun from appearing to severe and gives it the soft modern touch.
Troy Jensen gave Kim Kardashian a “dramatic and unapologetically sexy” look for the Keeping Up With The Kardashians season 3 promo. As you can see, he gave Kim a glowing and flawless complexion, pale sheer lips and heavily rimmed eyes – all using beauty products from Yves Saint Laurent.
Kim Kardashian is forever mugging for the camera. So homegirl should know a thing or two about foundation primers. She blogs:
“I love this Smashbox foundation primer called Photo Finish. Some make up artists don’t believe in primers. They think your natural oils should shine through. However, when I do my make up myself, I find it really helpful and it makes the foundation glide on really easily and flawlessly.”

Jason Wu hit the fashion lottery tonight. In December, the 26-year old Tawainese-American designer submitted three dresses to Michelle Obama for consideration, but considered himself a long-shot. Wu had no idea that Michelle Obama had chosen his one-shouldered, embellished, off-white gown until the President and First Lady took the stage at the Neighborhood Ball. “I found out tonight…along with the rest of the world,” Wu told CNN.
“It’s thrilling, it’s emotional and it’s inspiring. For a young designer, I couldn’t ask for anything more than this. It’s my dream come true.”
Wu said he created the dress to reflect the first couple and the new administration. He wanted to give Michelle a gown with a “dream-like quality.”
On inauguration night, Wu won’t be celebrating his newfound celebrity. He doesn’t have time. With New York Fashion Week only three weeks away, he will be burning the midnight oil – working on his Fall 2009 collection.
When asked his thoughts about Michelle Obama’s status as an emerging style icon, Wu said, “She’s versatile. She can do it all. She is amazing. She has her own sense of style and there’s nothing better than that.”
If you’re like me, you can’t get enough of Michelle Obama. Her fashion and beauty choices keep me entertained, on my toes, and taking copious notes.
Last Fall, while at New York Fashion Week, I got to talking with theBobbi Brown. Bobbi was sporting an Obama ’08 pin, so we started chatting about Michelle’s makeup and favorite Bobbi Brown products. Towards the end of the conversation, I asked Bobbi her opinion of Michelle’s eyebrows; I told Bobbi that, though Michelle can do no wrong in my eyes, her arches could use some softening. Bobbi smiled and nodded, adding that if she was Michelle’s makeup artist, she would give Michelle a less angular arch.
Around the same time, Michelle Obama’s actual makeup artist, Chicago-based makeup artist Ingrid Grimes-Myles, was getting the same criticism about Michelle’s brows.
“When she started getting that feedback—I have a rule: When three or more people give you feedback, that means hundreds are talking about it—then what I began to do is bring them down and train them down,” Grimes-Myles said.
If you take a close look at Michelle’s current brows and compare them the ones she sported at the Democratic National Convention, you’ll notice that the arch is less exaggerated.
The Chicago Tribune has a great article about Michelle’s brow evolution, which includes some tasty beauty tidbits (Michelle loves MAC lip pencils and gloss).
