Headwraps can make for a stunning beauty look, and the Eastern style has been a staple for making a glamorous statement on and off the red carpet. And of all the many hair accessories, turbans and chunky headbands are perfect for topping off your fresh Summer look. To help inspire you this season, we're rounding up some of our favourite ways we've spotted celebs rocking the look.
From sultry stares and Nordic qualities, to Old Hollywood glam and the type of bold look you can't take your eyes off, we were faced with beauty of all kinds this week. Miranda Kerr never lets us down with her looks, but this week she's trying something new that we're loving, while Eva Mendes has what might be the sexiest eyebrow we've ever seen. Gwyneth Paltrow brought her ice-blonde cool to the table, spiced up with a red lip, and Alexa Chung went for a girlier look than usual — to say we like it is an understatement. Click through to check out who else made our Top 10 most beautiful list this week!
This week both Jamie Chung and Eva Mendes were spotted with blue eye makeup. For her daytime appearance, Jamie matched the teal shades in her dress with a touch of turquoise eyeliner on her lower lash line. On the other hand, Eva went for a full-on navy smoky eye look for her evening event. While both ladies took a different approach to wearing blue eye makeup, they balanced the colourful eye makeup with neutral lip shades and light blush. But we want to know which eye makeup will you be trying out this season?
The Place Beyond the Pines finds Ryan Gosling re-teaming with his Blue Valentine director Derek Cianfrance for a striking drama about fathers and sons. Gosling plays Handsome Luke (yes, he's even dubbed a heartthrob by the announcer at the carnival for which he does motorcycle stunts), a guy from the wrong side of the tracks who finds out he has a baby with an old fling, Romina (Eva Mendes). Luke's discovery and subsequent foray into robbing banks in a misguided attempt to provide for his family would be enough fodder for a whole movie, but The Place Beyond the Pines takes a sharp turn with the entrance of Avery (Bradley Cooper), a well-to-do cop who has a run-in with Luke while on call. Almost immediately, the film becomes Avery's story until the final third when it picks up 15 years later. It's an unorthodox format, but the risk pays off.
The way the film is laid out is one of its most unexpected and potentially polarising elements, as viewers expecting to see Cooper and Gosling share a lot of screen time will be disappointed. Though technically it could be described as a crime thriller, it's really a story about a robber, then a story about a cop, then a story about their kids. Once you get past how jarring the format can be, The Place Beyond the Pines is pretty remarkable. To find out what else I think of the movie, just read more.
Week after week, we're inundated with pictures of gorgeous celebrities trying out new beauty trends and hairstyles. This week was no exception, and picking out a top 10 was no mean feat! But when it came down to it, we had to pick which hair and makeup adventures we actually wanted to copy ourselves. And between lovely Lara Bingle's dramatic cat-eye flick, formed to perfection, Jennifer Hawkins' beach-to-bar waves and Frieda Pinto's barely-there lip colour and smoky eye (and more!), we have plenty cool new trends to try. Keen to see them for yourself? Come along!
Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes were joined by their co-star Bradley Cooper when they screened their new film, The Place Beyond the Pines, in NYC on Friday. Ryan wore a green velvet Gucci suit while his girlfriend, Eva, donned an orange Prada frock. Bradley made the trip to the Big Apple from Boston, where he is currently filming a still-untitled David O. Russell film alongside Amy Adams and his Silver Linings Playbook co-star Jennifer Lawrence. He was spotted earlier this month wearing pink curlers on set, but at the premiere he showed no signs of a wavier 'do, instead opting to slick his long hair back off his face.
Katie Holmes was also in attendance after returning to the Big Apple from a trip to Disney World with Suri. Fans of Ryan Gosling may want to catch this film, as the actor recently announced that he might be taking a break from acting. Don't forget to check out our review of The Place Beyond the Pines to see if Ryan's latest project is for you.
We could rename this the week of the Little Black Dress, after we spied numerous style-setters stepping out in the the classic wardrobe piece. Diane Kruger's sheer-panelled Thakoon number was pure perfection — classy, with a hint of sex appeal thrown in for good measure — and those silver shoes! We couldn't get enough. Also in LBDs? Megan Gale, in form-fitting leather and Rachel Bilson, who went with a rainbow twist on the classic. Then there was Jessica Alba in some of the coolest pants we've seen, visiting model Barbara Palvin in a feminine white sheath, one model in a very popular jumpsuit and more. It's all in here, click through to see it all!
Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes got together for their Place Beyond the Pines NYC press trip on Sunday. The couple was spotted boarding a plane together in LAX, and later they joined up for a press conference shortly after landing in the Big Apple. In addition to Ryan and Eva, The Place Beyond the Pines stars Bradley Cooper, who wasn't with the couple for the first part of their trip, as he was busy hanging out with Josh Brolin and Michael Fassbender in LA. The film follows a former motorcycle stuntman who becomes a bank robber to support his girlfriend and their newborn child. The project holds special significance for Ryan and Eva, as it's where they met. It opens in Australia on May 9.
When it comes to her hair, birthday girl Eva Mendes doesn't miss an opportunity to add sparkle or pattern with a well-placed accessory in her caramel-toned strands. From knotted scarves to encrusted headbands, Eva is the master of adding variety to her style. So raise a glass to Eva on her 39th, and see her donning 10 of her best baubles now.
