First there was glitter, then came magnetic and velvet and now, there's leather. Nails Inc is set to launch a leather-effect polish later this month in the UK, and one very stylish celebrity sampled the product before its December 13 release date. Can you guess who it is?
Like something out of a Hollywood movie from yesteryear, three celebrities have stepped out recently with delicately cascading, side-swept curls. Jessica Chastain stunned at the opening night of her play The Heiress with her fiery red hair done in tight waves. Kelly Osbourne wore her lavender locks in a looser, wavier version of the style, while Lucy Hale went for full, bouncy curls at the Country Music Association Awards. Each star put her own spin on the vintage-inspired coif, but if you had to choose, who did it best?
Kate Beckinsale and Jessica Biel were looking divine in Berlin for the Total Recall premiere overnight. The pair have been stunning the world with a variety of beauty looks while promoting the action film, but last night's looks were by far our favourite. Kate looked pretty and romantic with a side chignon and swept fringe, while Jessica looked clean and polished with a sleek bun. She wore her fringe straight and blunt, which finished off her well-manicured look. Both ladies kept their makeup minimal with two sets of nude lips, Kate went for gloss while Jessica kept it matte. What do you think — romantic or sleek and straight?

Serums are probably the fast-growing, yet sometimes misunderstood category in skincare. If I had a $1 for every time someone asked me if they really needed one and if they're really necessary, I'd be a rich little lady. The short answer I always give is yes. A big, fat YES. Because essential they're like a targeted treatment in a bottle. Containing more active ingredients than your regular cleanser or moisturiser, it's their sole job to fix problems. Be it lack of hydration, pigmentation, fine lines, enlarged pores. The list is endless. Which meant it was hard to filter them down to these short-listed finalists: Estée Lauder Idealist Even Skintone Illuminator, an oil-free serum pumped with antioxidants that imparts instant radiance, Ultraceuticals Even Skintone Serum which features a host of AHAs and BHAs to slough away dead skin cells and improve overall texture and tone, The Body Shop Nutriganics Drops of Youth which uses plant stem-cell technology to target the first signs of ageing, Lancôme Visionnaire Advanced Skin Corrector, a skin transformer that minimises the appearance of wrinkles and tightens and reduces pores, L’Oréal Paris Youth Code Luminosity Day Serum which combines lumi-gen technology and Anderson liquid to improve luminosity, Dermalogica Overnight Repair Serum, a peptide-rich formula that nourishes and repairs overnight and Yves Saint Laurent Forever Youth Liberator Serum which is infused with glycans to reduce fine lines.

The higher the hair, the closer to God, ain't that right Lana Del Rey? The "Blue Jeans" singer was outside her hotel in London over the weekend sporting a retro 'do and exaggerated winged eyeliner, reminding us of Amy Winehouse's signature beehive hair and 60s makeup look. Lana's rumoured to be the new face of H&M but this look was after her performance at the Isle of Wight Festival where she performed on stage with a similar volumised 'do. We're used to seeing Lana play around with her beauty looks — in 2009 she went bleach blonde for Keds and matched berry lips with her nails at this year's Met Gala — but this eye-catching style really caught our attention. What do you think of Lana's bouffant hair and kohl-rimmed eyes, love it or leave it?
On first inspection you'd be forgiven for thinking that Charlize Theron is another star on the natural beauty bandwagon at today's MTV Video Music Awards. But look a little closer and you'll see that beautiful golden bronze eye. The colour's been taken all over the lid and underneath the lower lash line with subtle finishing touches of warmed-up cheeks and a dusky pink lip. A natural-looking blow-dry with a side part and flicked-out ends rounds out the look. Thoughts?

MTV Movie Awards presenter Mila Kunis may have skipped the red carpet, but she posed for pics in the press room showing off her gorgeous eye makeup which featured sparkly gold shadow, rimmed with black liner. Keeping her lip neutral, Mila sported possibly the shiniest strands of the night, which were centre-parted with a loose curl running through the mid lengths. Is it a look that impresses you?
