Princess Diana’s Gowns to be Exhibited

4 Jan

h Though the world has a new future Queen to look to for fashion fantasies, it’s hard to forget Princess Diana’s emblematic style. Her gowns continue to fetch high prices at auction, and now five of them will be on public display at Kensington Palace.

Beginning March 26th, the palace will host a handful of the late royal’s most memorable fashion moments—from a fuchsia silk dress by Catherine Walker to a black shift designed by Gianni Versace. Also included in the line-up is a controversial strapless black taffeta gown by Emanuel that received criticism in the 80′s for its dark color and revealing neckline. How times have changed, as Duchess Kate wore something quite similar to a military ball over the weekend—garnering rave reviews for her bold, uncharacteristically sexy choice (courtesy of Alexander McQueen).

The exhibit will be creatively titled, ‘Diana,’ and it’s part of a celebration for Kensington Palace’s $19 million renovation, just the start of a giant year for the royal family. 2012 will also mark Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee and the London Olympics, of which Duchess Kate is an ambassador, so there’s much more regal fashion to come!

Beauty Crisis : How To Cover Up Dark Under Eye Circle

19 Dec

Every morning when I wake up, I always seem to have dark under-eye circles. I don’t like looking tired when I’m really not! I’ve tried numerous cover-ups and creams, but they haven’t helped at all. How can I look awake and ready for the day?

Dark circles are often hereditary, which can be a drag because it means there’s no real way to prevent them (darn genetics!). But luckily for those of us who suffer from the dreaded discoloration, there are ways to treat and cover up dark under eye circles.

“Topical creams–such as my R3p Eye Cream–can help treat dark circles,” says Fredric Brandt, MD, a celebrity dermatologist and best-selling author. “Look for topical products that contain retinol and peptides (which help strengthen and stimulate collagen production), caffeine (which constricts blood vessels), and products that have anti-inflammatory ingredients such as green tea and aloe.” Brandt also recommends using an eye cream with illuminating particles that reflect light.

Clarins celebrity beauty artist Pati Dubroff follows the mantra ‘less is more’ when it comes to covering up dark under eye circles. “The biggest mistakes are to use a heavier concealer around eye area. These are best for sides of nose and blemishes and only should be used in extreme moderation.” She recommends using foundation first “to see how much of the job it takes care of” then using a concealer “in a tone a bit lighter than your skin color, in a brush form that is targeted for brightening the under eye area. Use this in the entire under eye area. If that didn’t do the trick then use a heavier concealor which matches skin color exactly on only the lower part of orbital bone (where the darkest crescent forms). If you have dark circles under the eyes it is best to stick with light shimmering eye shadow and to skip the heavy eyeliner. Heavy eyeliners will add more shadowing and light tone shadows will brighten all over eye area.” Her favorites are Clarins Instant Light Eye Perfecting Base to even and brighten the lids which help brighten whole area. If all else fails, Pati suggests using a “pop of bright lipstick” to draw attention away from eye circles!

5 Ways To Make Your Beauty Look More ‘VICTORIA’S SECRET MODEL’

30 Sep

The beauty habits, tricks and tips of Victoria’s Secret models have long been documented here on Girls In The Beauty Department, but a couple of weeks ago – while peeking at their beauty collection for holiday (lots of sparkles, as to be expected, and a new scent, called Victoria’s Secret Angel) – I realized just how simple the whole Victoria’s Secret model look really is. Well, ‘simple’ might not be the right word. Maybe ‘5-steps-to-hot’ is the best description. Come find out what those 5 steps are and see if you agree…

1. Long layered locks with a bit of bounce
Young, hip celebrities might be going pixie-short but the Victoria’s Secret girls love their long, bouncy layers. It adds to their catwalk panache and reinforces that whole bombshell thing they’re going for. Does it look hot? Yep.

2. Dramatic eye, natural lip
Many makeup looks require you to choose between a dramatic lip or a dramatic eye. 99 times out of 100, a Victoria’s Secret model will opt for the latter. It’s certainly more bedroom-appropriate, which I guess is kind of the point?

3. Bronzy, glowy, sparkly skin
Whether sun-kissed or just highly moisturized, the Victoria’s Secret ladies are not afraid to shine. You know they mean business when sparkles get thrown in the mix – there’s even a ‘dusting station’ backstage at the runway shows.

4. A love of fragrance
Scent is a powerful tool when it comes to looking hot – but it’s easy to forget about, isn’t it? Victoria’s Secret does a mean fragrance business and the Victoria’s Secret girls are there to promote those sexy scents, every step of the way.

5. White teeth, the better for smiling and air kissing
Victoria’s Secret models are meant to project healthiness and sparkling white teeth are just part of that package. With the amount of over-the-top smiling and air kissing they do, it only makes sense, right?
