Are you ready for this beauty spectacular? Ghd sponsored the 2013 Victoria's Secret fashion show and the hair was, as you'd expect, larger than life. Centre-parts and curls turned-out so perfectly it's criminal, alongside a lot of body bronzer, smoky eyes and glossy, nude lips. After seeing all the backstage prep before the big show, we're now bringing you the beauty highlights from the runway. Prepare to be dazzled, and then go home and ghd your hair. The show airs this Sunday night at 8.30pm on FOX8.
Our Instagram feeds were on opposite ends of the spectrum this week, with half of our favourite stars bracing themselves for the cold of the Norther Hemisphere Winter, and the other half soaking up the sun in Australia. Jesinta Campbell was one s star taking in the heat, sharing snaps of her incredible figure (not to mention some seriously cool Mikoh swimwear), and revealing some behind-the-scenes action on a beach shoot. On the other side of the globe, Lara stayed cosy in bed with her boyfriend Sam Worthington — the pair were in New Orleans — while Jessica Gomes rugged up in Paris and a bunch of Victoria's Secret models partied together in New York City. And Miranda Kerr? As usual, there were so many pictures of this local beauty — but we were particularly enamoured with the one in this gallery. Keen to see them all? Click through now!
We may be well into the swing of Summer, but there's one Winter trend that just won't quit — the sexy, dark, dangerous lip look. Dramatic description? It may well be, but a makeup craze this good deserves a bit of extra attention. There's something so mysterious and luxe about slicking dark red, purple or berry-hued colours across your lips — it's the easiest way to make like a modern femme fatale and knock the socks off anyone who stands in your way. As these celebrities beautifully exhibit, there are so many ways to interpret the trend. No matter your complexion and hair colour, there's a version in here that you can take and make your own this season. Because while we love a bright, light lip for long lunches in Summer, there's nothing quite like a vampy vibe to carry you through the balmy nights.
Prince William and Kate Middleton hit the red carpet for the screening of British naturalist David Attenborough's Natural History Museum Alive 3D film in London on Wednesday evening. Kate looked as gorgeous as ever in her black lace Temperley gown — this is the third time that we've seen the duchess wear the stunning dress, but she switched things up and accessorised with a pair of 3D glasses! As the royals arrived, they shook hands with greeters, and Kate, of course, stopped to chat with a couple of children before taking her seat.
We've seen Kate out and about for public events quite a bit lately, including earlier in the day when she and Will paid a visit to the South Africa House to sign the book of condolences for Nelson Mandela. The couple got the news of Mandela's death last week at the premiere of the biopic Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, and Kate reportedly became very emotional as she was notified of his passing before the film's end.

When Kate Middleton stepped out at the screening of David Attenborough's Natural History Museum Alive 3D at London's Natural History Museum today, we were not only struck by how stunning her lace Temperley gown was, but also by how familiar it looked. There was good reason for that: her plunging column had already made a red carpet appearance — twice!
This wouldn't be the first time the duchess repeated an outfit: just last week at the Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom premiere, she arrived in a crisp Roland Mouret gown that had already made an appearance in London one year earlier.
Classic Curls: To get the side-swept waves, you can go really old-school and dust off your hot rollers. Use the medium-sized curlers to set dry hair. While you're waiting for the waves to sink in (about 20 minutes), steal Blake's makeup look below. No time to wait? You can get a similar but more relaxed curl using a one-inch iron. Wrap hair around the barrel so that curls fall away from the face, leaving a few inches out at the roots. Hold for 30 seconds. Finish hair with a holding spritz like KMS California Stay Anti-Humidity Seal ($27.16).
Modern Makeup: While a typical cherry-red lipstick would complete the Old Hollywood theme, reach for something vampier for an updated take on the classic instead. Try ModelCo Party Proof Matte Lipstick in Smitten ($16.95), a dark wine lipstick and nail polish duet. To balance out the moody lip, it's best to go light on the eye makeup. Blake wore champagne shadows to brighten up her blue eyes. We like Bobbi Brown Shimmer Wash in Beige ($40) because it can work for most skin tones. Apply the shadow to lids and inner corners. Then, wet an angled liner brush and swipe on the shimmering shadow along the lower lash line, too. You want to avoid overusing eyeliner and focus on the mascara for this look. Bring it full circle by dusting the same metallic shadow under brows and on cheekbones for a glow that rivals Blake's gala-ready style.
