Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Cover April Issue of Vogue


Welp, folks, it looks like Kanye finally wore Anna Wintour down and got his baby mama a coveted Vogue cover. So the rumors were true. There was buzz a few months back that Kim would cover the fashion bible, but then everyone assumed it would be a foreign Vogue - given Anna's alleged aversion to all things Kardashian.

Mariah Carey-Cannon: MC Squared

Posted on by daneen in Celebrities | 2 Comments

mariah carey1 Mariah Carey Cannon: MC SquaredBy now, you’ve probably heard that Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon were married on Thursday at her estate in the Bahamas. The nuptials were foreshadowed earlier in the week when Mariah was spotted blinding bystanders with a 17-carat sparkler.

Personally, I think this marriage is going to bomb like Glitter. Not hatin’. Just sayin’.

People’s Most Beautiful People 2008

Posted on by daneen in Celebrities | 7 Comments

kate hudson Peoples Most Beautiful People 2008
People‘s 100 Most Beautiful People 2008 issue will be on newsstands starting Friday, May 2nd…but here’s a sneak peek at who the mag thinks got the pretty genes. Making this year’s list are (among others):

*Salma Hayek
*Mary J. Blige
*Rumer Willis (huh?)
*Sarah Silverman (pretty? yes. most beautiful? idk.)
*Christina Applegate
*Eva Longoria & Tony Parker (b/c it’s impossible to separate them.)
*Isla Fisher
*Amanda Beard (uh, no.)
*Cast of Gossip Girl
*Julianne Moore
*Jason Taylor
*Vanessa Hudgens
*Taylor Swift
*Zoe Saldana (I’ve loved her ever since Center Stage.)
*Jessica Alba & Cash Warren (surely, their baby will be beautiful.)
*Carrie Underwood

At the head of the pack is Kate Hudson , who graces the issue’s cover. Her best time for looking good, she tells the magazine, comes “at the end of the night, when everything’s soaked in and I’m still up. I like the leftover makeup in the morning. You’ve got to wash your face but there’s always the leftover eye makeup, I love that.”

What do you think about this list?

Get The Leona Lewis Look

Posted on by daneen in Beauty Tips, Celebrities | Leave a comment

Every morning, while I get ready for work, I tune to the Weather Channel – to figure out what I’m going to wear, and how I’m going to wear my hair (no need fussing with it if rain or humidity is going to render it limp or frizzy). Then I flip to VH1 for some background noise. Recently, without fail, just as I’m about to head out the door, Leona Lewis appears on my screen to serenade me with her hit, “Bleeding Love.” The last few days, I have switched from being mesmerized by her voice to being totally obsessed with her makeup.


I’ve performed one exhaustive search after another trying to find out which products she used for the video, but turned up empty-handed. I did manage to track down her makeup artist’s website.

JaneBradley Get The Leona Lewis LookJane Bradley has more than 15 years of experience under her makeup tool-belt, and her work with Leona Lewis has put her career on the fast track.

Her website’s blog doesn’t divulge the products used in the “Bleeding Love” video, but it does offer some of Jane’s techniques and favorite products.

For Leona’s February 2008 Harper’s Bazaar shoot, Jane used shades of black and brown on the eyes and kept everything else skin toned – even the lips. This look worked well with all the rather theatrical clothes that Alison Edmond (fashion director Harper’s Bazaar) had chosen. This look draws all the attention to the eyes which looks very seductive. Jane opted for a nude shade lipstick instead of a gloss to make it look more editorial and recommends shades by MAC in High Tea and Nars lip shades in Belle du Jour and Dolce Vita. If your natural lip colour is quite strong try rubbing in a little foundation or concealer before the lipstick. Jane also discovered a great lip pencil recently by ModelCo in Erase which may also help neutralise very pink lips.

In complete contrast, the shoot for You Magazine was another story altogether. This time the clothes were very feminine and girly with lots of long hippy inspired prints and flowing fabrics (summer’s going to be divine!) Jane and Leona decided to go for simple yet dramatic flirty eyes; no clever shading or strong eye shadow here, just lots of individual false lashes applied both to the top and bottom eyelids to give the freshest dreamiest eyes ever. Leona’s favourite colour, pink, was used to gently add colour to the cheeks using Daniel Sandler’s Watercolour blush in Icing. Lips were enhanced using lip balm and a slick of Bobbi Brown lipstick in Pale Pink.

Here are some of Jane’s beloved beauty products:

*Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage concealer compact
*Laura Mercier Secret Brightener (use it under the eyes before foundation then followed by the concealer; it has an iridescent hue which bounces light off the dark area giving extra help for really stubborn eye bags)
*Products from The Organic Pharmacy
*Products from the Stella McCartney Care organic skincare line

Jane also has an instructional DVD called Lips to Lashes, in which she shows how to apply make-up correctly, dispels myths and reveals tricks she uses on celebrities and models. To check out a clip, click here.

Jada Pinkett Smith – You Are Not Rihanna

Posted on by daneen in Celebrities, Hair | 11 Comments

JadaPinkett CrazyHair Jada Pinkett Smith   You Are Not Rihanna
Jada Pinkett Smith unveiled this new hairstyle (I don’t know what else to call it) at Victoria Beckham’s 34th star-studded birthday party. This Salt-N-Pepa throwback just isn’t working for me. I love me some Jada, but someone needs to point out that not everyone can pull off the edgy hair. That’s Rihanna’s schtick. I say, unless you can do it better – don’t do it at all.

It’s like being a contestant on American Idol and choosing to sing I Will Always Love You. Crackhead or not, Whitney’s got that song on lock – so don’t even go there.
