The wrong blush shade and texture can take you into lady-of-the-night territory. The right blush, however, can give you a lit-from-within flush, brightening your complexion in about 10 seconds flat. Such is the case with Giorgio Armani's Sheer Blush ($76). As the name implies, this blush imparts the subtlest amount of colour to the skin. And because of its soft, lightweight texture, there's nary an obvious streak or too-shimmery finish to be found. In fact, likely nobody will know you're even wearing makeup. It's a high-end purchase, no doubt. But for its ability to give you a fresh-faced, natural-looking glow with minimal effort, it's hard to put a price on that.
Cate Blanchett has served as the recent muse for Giorgio Armani, frequently wearing his creations on the red carpet, but now her role is expanding into the designer's beauty brand, too. The actress has been confirmed as the face of Armani fragrances, according to WWD. The contract will include a print magazine campaign for the brand's new eau de parfum called Sí, slated to hit shelves in the US by the end of Winter. Cate will serve as the first celebrity to represent the Giorgio Armani fragrances, which has relied on models in previous years. Who better than the woman who inspires Armani's fashion designs to also front his fragrance offerings?
The opening of the highly anticipated Giorgio Armani beauty counter inside Myer's Sydney city store drew a select but stylish crowd last night.

We were treated to not just one, but three gorgeous looks from Anne Hathaway on Oscars night. Not only did Hathaway take home the win for best supporting actress, she also performed on stage and managed to hit up an after-party, giving us three different takes on award-night dressing. For her first look, Hathaway hit the prestigious red carpet wearing a pale pink Prada gown — complete with a bow-detailed cut-out back — paired with a radiant Tiffany & Co. diamond necklace. For her Les Misérables performance, Hathaway changed into a nude-hued embellished custom Giorgio Armani gown, and later into the night, she donned a custom light-blue silk Saint Laurent column gown for the Vanity Fair Oscars afterparty. Now it's time to pick favourites — which gown gets your vote?
