HOW TO WEAR A SLIP DRESS LIKE RIHANNA, GIGI HADID, AND MORE STARS

How to Wear a Slip Dress Like Rihanna, Gigi Hadid, and More Stars

Now that the weather is warming up, we are ready to bust out our fresh spring wares. But like all good things in fashion, the adage, “What’s old is new again,” applies to some of our latest favorite pieces. Case in point: the slip dress. The early ’90s must-have evokes a certain effortlessness, while still being sexy. It’s why so many among the A-list set, like Rihanna, Gigi Hadid, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, have co-opted the staple all for themselves.

Now, the slip dress can certainly be dressy. Toss on a fur and grab a clutch, just like Huntington-Whiteley, and you’re ready for a black-tie affair. Or, copy Rihanna, who gave it a sporty spin by styling her metallic copper slip with a rugged baseball cap. Ahead, learn how to wear a slip dress like a celeb.

1. GET SPORTY

Rihanna is the queen of cool for a reason. Here, she took the sexy slip dress into athletic territory by wearing a mini style with a rugged baseball collections cap.

1. Get Sporty
2. SELECT A TONAL COLOR SCHEME

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley proved the slip dress’s glamorous power by opting for a tonal approach. Cream extras, like a fur and clutch, work well with the blush ground-grazing style.

2. Select a Tonal Color Scheme
3. ADD AN EDGE

Cool-girl extras, like an army green bomber jacket, black choker, John Lennon-esque shades, furry bag, and jacquard over-the-knee boots, give the slip dress some downtown edge. Take note, because Gigi Hadid is the coolest of the cool girls.

3. Add an Edge
4. PLAY UP ITS LINGERIE ROOTS

The slip was traditionally never meant to be seen (worn under clothes or in the bedroom). Play up the innerwear as outerwear trend by choosing an option with gorgeous lace detailing (see: Chloë Grace Moretz) and keep your accessories to a minimum.

4. Play Up Its Lingerie Roots
5. BE A MINIMALIST

Selena Gomez showed us you don’t need a lot of accessories—simple diamond earrings and a ring are all you need—when you want your slip dress to make the statement.

5. Be a minimalist
6. MAKE A TEXTURE PLAY

Slip dresses are usually cut from silk or satin, but Rihanna winterized the piece by sporting one in plush velvet. Don’t be afraid of playing with texture.

HOW TO WEAR A PANTSUIT IN 12 INSPIRED WAYS, AS SEEN ON THE STREET STYLE SET

How to Wear a Pantsuit in 12 Inspired Ways, as Seen on the Street Style Set

The beauty of a pantsuit: It’s the ultimate #girlboss aesthetic that doesn’t have to be stuffy or boring. It’s all in how you wear it. Just look to pantsuit icons throughout the years: groundbreaking pantsuit pioneer (and Hollywood fashion legend) Katharine Hepburn, the always classy and smart Diane Keaton and, of course, presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton, whose name is basically synonymous with a colorful pantsuit. Naturally, street style stars have embraced suit separates—and further proved that the look, while polished, can be far from conservative.

These fashion experts of popsspot took power suiting to a new level with bright colors, funky prints, and creative layering. From Caroline Issa’s straight-out-of-Pitti Uomo styling to comfortable-as-all-get-out pajama suiting, check out 12 inspired looks straight from Fashion Month’s savviest street style stars.

1. LADYLIKE ACCENTS

Mix up the traditional shirt-and-tie combo with a darling Peter Pan collar blouse and a pussy bow, instead. But temper the feminine details with classic loafers—extra points if they’re the Gucci horsebit ones.

1. Ladylike Accents
2. EDGED UP PINSTRIPES

A pinstriped suit feels anything but buttoned-up when it’s layered over a soft heathery knit and a fitted leather moto jacket.

3. CHECK IT OUT

Opt for extra-long sleeves (a ripped-from-the-fall-runways trend), layering it under a punchy fuchsia suit and doubling up on the summery print with flat loafers.Opt for extra-long sleeves (a ripped-from-the-fall-runways trend), layering it under a punchy fuchsia suit and doubling up on the summery print with flat loafers.

4. NON-TRADITIONAL BLACK

Kick up a classic black double-breasted pantsuit with non-classic details: a collarless wrap-front blazer over a long-sleeve striped tee (versus a blouse), and puddle pants that might not be practical, but they look cool. And bright red backpack adds a relaxed, but luxurious, finishing touch. Coffee cup, optional.

5. CHIC RELAXATION

A pantsuit that’s literally as comfortable as wearing your pajamas to work. Just make sure your coat and accessories are polished and refined to counter the relaxed vibe of the PJ suit.

6. PJ PRINTS

Fully embrace the pajama suit trend with vibrant prints and colors—and a soft, neutral-hued bathrobe-like coat.

7. MENSWEAR-INSPIRED

Caroline Issa went with full-on natty menswear layers: a blue button-down shirt, a V-neck sweater, and a double-breasted wool suit. But if you look closely, she stealthily incorporated a girly accent with pink sneakers.

7. Menswear-Inspired
8. IT’S A CINCH

Double up on flair with a floral-printed pantsuit and a wide waist-accentuating, corset-style belt. A classic khaki trench coat won’t compete with the pretty print and statement accessories.

9. EVENING SUIT

Leigh Lezark worked the tuxedo but with a chic twist: a silk satin-y sheen, a boxy cropped jacket silhouette, voluminous trousers… and no shirt.

9. Evening Suit
10. CLOSE TO THE VEST

For warmer occasions (or if you’re impervious to the cold), swap your blazer for a longline vest.

10. Close to the Vest
11. WINTER WHITE

The white power suit is a winter staple at this point, but inject a little fun into the look with a fluffy coat and just-as-pristine white sneakers (you’ll be warm and comfy). (Just maybe stick with clear beverages during the day.)

12. THE STARTER PRINTED PANTSUIT

Dip your toe into the kaleidoscopic pantsuit trend with a gateway look—a neutral print set with a simple white tee—before you go full Gucci on us.

7 UNEXPECTED MAKEUP SHADES THAT ARE ACTUALLY FLATTERING

7 Unexpected Makeup Shades that Are Actually Flattering

Have you ever been shopping for new makeup shades and came across a color that’s stopped you dead in the middle of the beauty aisle with this thought: “Who the heck would wear that?” We’re right there with you scratching our heads.

But despite initially writing off these products off as best suited for clowns, many of these intimidating hues actually go on a little more tame and all-around flattering than on first impression.  A vivid turquoise eyeliner will brighten and accentuate your eyes, and a blush that matches the shade of your favorite red lipstick actually leaves a natural, healthy flush on the apples of your cheeks. Here, seven seemingly wacky-colored products that can easily be incorporated into your makeup routine for a welcome splash of color.

1. NARS COSMETICS BLUSH IN EXHIBIT A

You might think that the bold red hue of this NARS blush is better suited for your lips, but the powder actually produces a healthy, natural-looking flush. Just apply with a light hand to gradually build the shade desired. $30; narscosmetics.com

1. NARS Cosmetics Blush in Exhibit A 
2. LIPSTICK QUEEN LIPSTICK IN HELLO SAILOR

When we first saw this blue lipstick, images of frost bitten lips instantly came to mind, but this navy bullet unexpectedly goes on super sheer as a flattering deep berry tint that will also make teeth look extra bright.$25; lipstickqueen.com

2. Lipstick Queen Lipstick in Hello Sailor 
3. YVES SAINT LAURENT MASCARA VOLUME EFFET FAUX CILS IN HIPPIE GREEN

This green hue may seem better suited for a Wizard of Oz costume, but hear us out: Emerald green lashes will compliment warm brown eyes and enhance the golden flecks in blue and green eyes. $32; yslbeautyus.com

3. Yves Saint Laurent Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils in Hippie Green 
4. RMS LIP2CHEEK IN CURIOUS

Yes it’s bright and orange, but this cheek balm is totally wearable and leaves behind a sheer, buildable glow that works on a number of skin tones. $36; rmsbeauty.com

5. ESSENCE LONG-LASTING EYE PENCIL IN TU-TU TURQUOISE 17

Surprisingly, a turquoise liner is a flattering shade for every skin tone and eye color. Glide this pencil on close to your waterline for a subtle boost of color, or be extra playful and use it to create a cat eye. $3; ulta.com

5. Essence Long-Lasting Eye Pencil in Tu-Tu Turquoise 17 
6. NYX COSMETICS FULL THROTTLE SHADOW STICK IN FEMME FATALE

It’s easy to be intimidated by a rich purple shadow, but if you give the shade a chance, you’ll find the vivid color is universally complimentary and can be worn day or night.$7; nyxcosmetics.com

6. NYX Cosmetics Full Throttle Shadow Stick in Femme Fatale 
7. TOO COOL FOR SCHOOL DINOPLATZ LOST IDENTITY LIP COLOR

Mint green isn’t known for being a go-to lip shade, but this mood ring-like crayon is about to change that. Once you swipe it on, the color adjusts based on your body chemistry. Bonus: it keeps lips soft and smooth all day long. $18; sephora.com

FIND THE RIGHT CONCEALER—FOR EVERY SKIN ISSUE

Find the Right Concealer—For Every Skin Issue

Search the word “concealer” on any beauty retailer’s site, and you’re bound to see at least three or four pages filled with everything from pens to pots. That in mind, for your sake of your wallet and sanity, might we suggest shopping based on what exactly you intend to camouflage? Be it masking dark circles or disguising a pimple, according to celebrity makeup artist Andrew Sotomayor, there’s a concealer for that.

1. THE STICK

What It’s Best For: Since stick concealers are so dense, they work especially well for blemishes, says Sotomayor. For the same reason, it’s important to blend, blend, blend after initially dabbing on the formula. “Use a fluffy eyeshadow brush to buff it out evenly,” says Sotomayor. Or, if you have dry skin, before applying, warm the concealer by holding the tube between clasped hands before picking up a small amount with a brush, he advises. The trick allows for you to “melt” the concealer, making it lighter and even smoother.Pro Pick: Clé De Peau Beauté Concealer Cle de Peau Beaute $70 SHOP IT

1. The Stick
2. POTS/PANS

What It’s Best For: Perhaps the most multi-purpose of all concealers, those housed in pots or pans work for both trouble spots and undereyes. “Since it comes in solid form, you can tap it on with your fingertip without picking up too much product,” says Sotomayor, who uses the same technique on eyelids to prime before using shadow.Pro Pick: Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage Laura Mercier $35 SHOP IT

2. Pots/Pans
3. PEN

What It’s Best For: According to Sotomayor, if you’re always on the go, you need a concealer pen in your life. “They’re super portable and great for touching up, since the built-in brush tip blends the concealer as you apply it and only dispense a little at a time,” he says. Use it midday on the areas where your foundation has faded for a fresh-faced look.Pro Pick: Eve Lom Light Illusion Concealer Eve Lom $40 SHOP IT

3. Pen
4. DOE FOOT WAND

What It’s Best For: Formulas applied via a doe foot wand are famously lightweight, says Sotomayor. That makes them ideal for covering patches of discoloration—like redness around the nose—without caking. Just be sure to blend out with a fluffy shadow brush, cautions Sotomayor.Pro Pick: Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin Concealer

4. Doe Foot Wand
5. TUBE

What It’s Best For: A bit of creamy concealer straight from the tube can do wonders for dark circles and discoloration, says Sotomayor. (For precision’s sake, squeeze out a bit on the back of your hand and use a small brush if you’re trying to cover a blemish.) Formulas here can vary from light to heavy coverage, so shop accordingly. Sotomayor’s pick by Onomie boasts skin care benefits in the form of brightening, too.Pro Pick: Onomie Bright Concealing Elixir $26 SHOP IT

See what the celebrities wore at the Oscars 2016

Have you seen all the looks your favorite celebrities wore during the Oscars 2016? Check out here some of the most beautiful and elegant look the red carpet offered.

CLASSIC BLACK

Oscars 2016 black dresses

Jennifer Garner, Jennifer Lawrence, Julianne Moore and Kate Winslet.

Black is always a good choice, although it can easily be boring. This year the celebrities wore original and beautiful black dresses at the Oscars 2016: Jennifer Garner chose a classic cut but with a modern asymmetrical sleeve detail with her Atelier Versace dress. Meanwhile, Jennifer Lawrence opted for a modern touch in a sexy black lace Dior Haute Couture dress with a dramatic tiered skirt. Julianne Moore was stunning in her Chanel Couture dress with an elegant embellished plunge, whie Kate Winslet chose a more original look with a liquid black silk lamé material dress from Ralph Lauren Collection.

SPRING WAVES

Oscars 2016 spring waves

Cate Blanchett, Heidi Klum, Jennifer Jason Leigh and Alicia Vikander.

Pastel colors ruled the Oscars 2016 red carpet and gave a nod to spring. Celebrities wanted to pay tribute to Pantone’s colors of the year Rose Quartz and Serenity and decided to dress with this kind of tones. Cate Blanchett chose a light blue Armani dress with flowers and christals that added the spring touch to the look, and so did Heidi Klum. The model wore a pink and lilac Marchesa dress embelissed with flowers. Jennifer Jason Leigh, who was nominated for Best Actress in a Supporting Role for “The Hateful Eight” but lost it to Alicia Vikander, chose also a Marchesa dress in a pink pastel tone, strapless and with some decorative flowers too. Vikander wore a pale yellow Louis Vuitton dress with silver beads.

PURE WHITE

Oscars 2016 pure white

Priyanka Chopra, Lady Gaga, Rooney Mara and Maria Menounos.

Some of the celebrities decided they wanted to look like a bride during the Oscars 2016 and chose wedding white dresses. Priyanka Chopra in a Zuhair Murad strapless dress with embroidered roses looked gorgeous on her. Lady Gaga suprised us with an elegant and totally white ensembe of long skirt over trousers from Brandon Maxwell, and Rooney Mara picked an original and romantic Givenchy Haute Couture by Riccardo Tischi lace dress with a diamond central cut-out at her stomach. Maria Menounos in a Christan Siriano embellished dress looked stunning.

JEWEL TONES

Oscars-2016-jewel-color-dresses.FashionParade

Brie Larson, Reese Whiterspoon, Rachel McAdams and Sofía Vergara.

Color like emerald green, amethyst and midnight blue were some of the most chosen ones by the celebrities. The Best Actress Oscar winner Brie Larson chose an electric blue Gucci dress with a V-neck and beautiful belt, while Resse Witherspoon opted for a classic strapless cut in an Oscar de la Renta deep purple dress. Rachel McAdams in August Getty Atelier chose the emerald green for the Oscars 2016 with a huge back plunge and a halter neck. And Sofia Vergara in Marchesa looked stunning, as usual, with the strapless cut she always chooses and a midnight blue tone.

DEEP PLUNGES

Oscars 2016 plunges

Saoirse Ronan, Olivia Wilde, Margot Robbie and Charlize Theron.

Plunging necklines are always visible on the red carpets. This year celebrities have chosen to wear plunges on the front and the back. Oscar nominee Saoirse Ronan in RookBrand Collection is the perfect example: she chose an emerald green to honor her Irish roots that had along V-neck but also a sexy back plunge. Olivia Wilde also chose a sexy dress with both front and back plunges from Valentino Couture in elegant white. Margot Robbie in Tom Ford just opted for the front and covered the rst of her body in this golden sequinned dress. And Charlize Theron in Dior shined in a sexy red dress with a sternum-baring dress.

WHAT TO WEAR UNDER SHEER CLOTHING—TRADE SECRETS FROM CELEBRITY STYLISTS

What to Wear Under Sheer Clothing—Trade Secrets from Celebrity Stylists

The sheer trend has dominated the celebrity fashion world for quite some time—to the point where the red carpet serves as something of a battling ground to see who can bare the most without actually being nude. The biggest instance of this that first comes to mind is the Met Gala last year, in which Kim Kardashian (in Roberto Cavalli), Beyoncé (in Givechy Haute Couture), and Jennifer Lopez (in Atelier Versace) all turned up in see-through creations so scanty that they would have made even the most liberal of us blush.

And it’s not just the red carpet. Even photocalls and casual events have been hit with the transparent trend, with sheer tops and pants (that reveal every kind of lingerie underneath) running rampant among the A-listers. It’s all fun and great—except perhaps for the men and women who are responsible for these looks, whose job it is to prevent wardrobe malfunctions and fashion disasters whenever possible. It just adds more things to think about: How much skin should you show? What kind of lingerie should you wear? What about shapewear?

“I think it’s because of top models, the Kardashians, and the girls who are very into the ’90s,” says stylist Cristina Ehrlich (who dresses Brie Larson, Allison Williams, and Penelope Cruz) on why the sheer trend has gone for as long as it has. “They love to wear a lot of time intimates as a top, and sometimes it looks great, sometimes it doesn’t.”

To make sure we all look great 100-percent of the time, we asked three top Hollywood stylists to reveal their trade secrets on what to wear under sheer clothing.

Find Full-Coverage Nipple Covers

“I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I only found these because I’m a mom. The nipple covers that you buy as a nursing mom—the ones that prevent leakage—those have the most coverage, and you can wear way more things without a bra,” says Tara Swennen, who styles Kristen Stewart, Emily Ratajkowski, and Odeya Rush. “Brands used to make nipple covers that just covered the nipple, which almost looks even worse. I like LilyPadz—they have the most coverage and you can wear anything with those.”

Slip Into Shapewear Shorts

“Because we work a lot with sheer right now, we use the black Spanx Power Shorty—they’re great for support, they’re cute, and they look like little boy shorts,” says Penny Lovell, who dresses Rose Byrne, Anne Hathaway, and Kristen Wiig. “Nude ones look like shapewear, but black ones look like they’re made to be seen. And they come up high on the stomatch, so they’re great for support.” That is, of course, unless you’re Gigi Hadid, and you have a supermodel physique and don’t need shapewear support—a pair of black panties work just as well.

Look Into Pretty Intimates

“These days, it’s so much more than having the right shapewear,” Ehrlich says. “If you have a sheer blouse, then it’s about a bra that you can see. Intimates from Wolford in nude, black, and white are always great to have on hand.”
