We saw more than one stand-out beauty look at the GQ Men of the Year Awards last night, but new bride Jodi Gordon looked particularly amazing in aqua. We'll be dreaming about her beachy waves for weeks to come, but it was her deep bronze tan against the crisp blue of her frock that really brought her look together. We love pairing out favourite aqua and turquoise nail polish with self tan — it's a dream combo and you'll get comments, lots of them.
Self-confessed "overachiever" Chloë Moretz has gone and ticked another thing off the Bucket List, landing the December/January cover of Teen Vogue. The ridiculously stylish teen (yep, it's easy to forget she's just 14-years-old) shows off her beauty smarts in the accompanying spread, sporting a chunky side braid complete with nautical bow and aqua nail polish. Other shots see her hair centre-parted and gently pinned back at each side or hanging loose creating a curtain bangs effect. One thing's for certain — Chloë's a cutie pie chameleon whose beauty look we're still totally crushing on.
Be inspired by this gorgeous snap of Mona Johannesson in Plaza Magazine: aqua and coral have GOT to be the most dynamic duo for the beach. We saw a similar pairing from Miss Abbey Lee when she graced the cover of Vogue Australia earlier this year and loved the look then so we'll be matching our favourite coral lip balm, MAC's Gentle Coral Tinted Lip Conditioner ($28) with Mecca's Resort Polish ($22) when we hit the beach this Summer. LOVE.
Fab and I consider ourselves to be big Abbey Lee Kershaw fans. Huge in fact. So I was so thrilled when Fab shared the news that Abbey Lee was gracing the March issue of Vogue Australia. We oohed and ahhed over the beautiful Bondi beach-inspired cover, particularly Abbey Lee's aqua green mani (and pedi) which I am openly declaring as my favourite new "it" shade. Don't you just love it? Drew Barrymore and Rachel Bilson do; they were spotted wearing a similar shade late last year. If you're a fellow fan, try Kit Cosmetics High Velocity Nail Polish in Speed Demon ($15.95), Sportsgirl Nail It in Envy ($7.95), Mecca Cosmetica Limited Edition Painted Beauty Glide On Nail Colour in Dionyza ($22), China Glaze Pisces Passion in the Pacific ($14.95) or ORLY Green with Envy ($18.95).
