With one Valentino dress, Amy Adams single-handedly covers geometric print, embroidery AND sheer overlay. That’s three trends in one outfit, which is a feat in and of itself. But beware, trying to pair too many trends together in one outfit can be a serious fashion gamble. Like tie-dye + fringe + cut-outs. That’s a no. Or sheer + gaucho + feathers. Also no. Multi-trending isn’t for amateurs. Top out at two trends per outfit, or there’s a good chance you’ll end up looking like Miranda Lambert at a cat food launch. And that’s NOT a compliment.

I won’t lie, retro waves are a LOT of work, and to do them right you need a solid hour — and that’s not including wash and dry time. It’s not a look that works for every day simply because of the time and effort involved. But it’s great for a red carpet or a fancy date night, and it adds a sophistication and polish to any look.
Retro waves how-to below + everything you need for retro waves in the gallery above:
Ali Landry did a great summer take on the smoky eye at the Butterfly Ball earlier this week, going with a deep purple shadow instead of the traditional dark brown or gray. It achieves the same overall eye-intensifying effect of a smoky eye without appearing as heavy, which is perfect for summer’s less-is-more approach to makeup. Unless you’re Jennifer Lopez, Christina Aguilera or Katy Perry, for whom more is always more, whether you’re talking about makeup or sense of self-worth.

I was also pointing and laughing like Carrie Underwood in this picture, but for different reasons. I was pointing and laughing because fringe looks stupid. Unless you’re Tonto or an extra on the set of “Last of the Mohicans,” you have no business wearing it.
I don’t mind the occasional beaded fringe or tassel (like this skirt from Jil Sander or these earrings from Haute 1), but as a rule, fringe is generally an outfit death sentence. For instance, these fringed pants should only happen if you’re pledging or going as Jem or one of the Holograms for Halloween. A fringed crochet vest should only happen if it’s 1973. And this fringed skirt right here should never, EVER happen, under any circumstances. Leave fringe to country-western line dancers and Vanessa Hudgens, where it belongs.

It’s hard to know who to hate more in this picture, Kim Kardashian or Madonna. Fortunately, a 15-inch barrel and bird shot means you don’t have to decide!

Citrus hues were big for spring, especially yellow, which was featured on the runways at Marc Jacobs, Alice + Olivia and Jenny Packham. Goldie Hawn and Goga Ashkenazi both wore the color to the amFAR Gala last week, but only one of them got it right. Hint: it’s the one who doesn’t look like she’s [...]
“Would you rather” is a classic game in which two worst-case scenarios are pitted against each other and you must choose one of the options, no matter how terrible it might be. For example, “Would you rather slide down a banister of razor blades into a pool of Texas Pete, or slide down a banister [...]
