Celeb-inspired style for everyday life

Celebrity Look #1- Victoria Beckham
Victoria has become a style maven in her own right…gone are the days of short dresses as Posh Spice, and now she’s known for her sophisticated and classic silouhettes, with feminine touches, a look that she incoporates in her own fashion line. Her jet set airport style is also always on point, despite being a mother of four. This woman never has an off day!
 
How to get the look:

 

  • Try to find some classic suiting with sexy edge
  • Mix masucline with feminine (this is probably husband DAVID’S Influence!)
  • Look for a great coat that’s structed in a classic print like tweed
  • Pumps- victoria loves her stilettoes- she famously was quoted as saying that she would never be photographed in flats, and although she’s since changed her tune, she always has thouse sky high heels for major red carpet events- a black pointy stiletto is a must.
  • Keep the look classic and clean. Victoria never wears a lot of accessories, embellishment or prints.

Victoria’s Beauty Secrets:

 

 

  • Baby oil: Victoria uses baby oil to protect her skin while traveling. She puts a layer of baby oil over face. Protects skin on plane, locks in moisture. Bonus- great eye makeup remover.
  • Omega-3: Her dermatologist in LA advised her to eat salmon every day, as omega 3 fatty acids are great for glowing skin. Eating foods rich in omega 3’s is always best but omega-3 supplements are an alternative.

 
Celebrity Look #2- Kerry Washington
We love her as Olivia Pope on Scandal, but this A-list actress has just as good style as the character! She manages to always look polished but still fashion-forward. Kerry proves that you can still look sexy without showing too much skin, but where she takes risks on the red carpet is with colour and fun patterns!
 
How to get the look:

 

 

  • Look for an A-LINE dress with structure that hits right at the knee or just below
  • Go for a playful print- bold colour combinations and something unexpected
  • Embelisshments are key! But a safer way to do that is with your accessories, like a studded bag
  • Lady like details mixed with fashion-forward elements

Kerry’s Beauty Secrets:

 

 

  • Kerry actually has battled eczema since she was 6 years old, to help treat it, she stays away from dairy and drinks lots of water.
  • She is a firm believer of regular exfoliation followed by using a daily moisturizer with broad spectrum spf 30. No matter what type of skin or skin tone, spf is a must.
  • Another tip, her favourite beauty look is lots of mascara with a berry lip. When applying she says she lets one coat dry before reapplying to build and for lips, a tinted balm, keeps it moisturized while still having a rich colour.

 
Celebrity Look #3- Chrissy Teigen
Supermodel, host, cookbook author, social media maven, and now mother, Chrissy does it all, while still always keeping that effortless, boho surfer girl meets glam godess look when hitting the red carpet with hubby John Legend. She is able to look not completely done all the time, a little bit of edge but without fuss, an homage to her west coast roots. Surprising fact, a lot of her clothes are a mix of high and low (she pairs Levi's with Balenciaga).
 
How to get the look:

 

 

  • An instant way to make an outfit look expensive is to do a monochromatic look, celebs like Chrissy do this all the time and it’s quite a simple styling hack to do- Chrissy loves her bold colours, like pinks, blacks, whites.
  • Also Chrissy is great at mixing proportions in a way that looks fashion forward while still showing off her figure, for example, wide legs pants with a tighter fitting top, or a tight fitting dress with a loose jacket, as i have done here
  • The Chrissy touch- gold, boho jewelry, layered! Costume jewelry always looks more expensive when layered

Chrissy’s Beauty Secrets:

 

 

  • Chrissy is famous for her glowy brozed skin. She doesn't wash her face at night, and instead uses a face whip and only washes it in the morning- she is a firm believer of not over washing.
  • For her glowy complextion, she swears by a spray foundation to create a flawless look- her go to is Dior Airflash Spray Foundation. She says not to follow the directions that say to spray it directly on your face, to avoid ending up with nude eyebrows and lips! If you squirt a little of it on a wet sponge and then just pat it on your skin, the result is glowing and beautiful skin.
  • The secret to her lucious lips can be found at the drugstore! She’s addicted to aquaphor lip repair, less than $7!
