Lightening your hair colour can be a great way to brighten up a Winter's day, but first things first: Can anybody be a blonde? "I joke that there are always some blonde pieces or some highlights that can be put in everybody," says celebrity colourist Kim Vo (who has worked with stars such as Katherine Heigl, Britney Spears, and Kate Hudson). But he readily admits that while blonde doesn't necessarily work for all people, everyone can embrace their inner blonde when need be. Luckily, we've come a long way from the brassy, unhealthy-looking blondes of yester-year, allowing even the darkest of brunettes to achieve perfectly flaxen strands. Thinking about lightening up this season but feeling a little gun shy? See Vo's tips for baby-stepping your way to the right hue when you read more.

Jennifer Lopez looks neat and chic with a smooth ponytail, while model Lindsey Wixson smoulders with warm red lipstick and dolly curls. Candice Swanepoel turned up with white blonde hair, and Carly Rae Jepsen gave red a run for its money. Let's go!
We've said it before and we'll say it again: no one throws a party like the fashion industry. After yesterday's CFDA Awards, the industry gathered at a collection of after-parties that brought together designers, models, and celebrities alike. Swarovski hosted an official afterparty at the Top of The Standard at New York's Standard hotel, where nearly everyone who walked the red carpet was spotted. Karlie Kloss blew kisses at the camera, while Prabal Gurung simply smooched his date, Candice Swanepoel, on the cheek. A look at all those pictures and more, straight ahead.

Candice Swanepoel slipped into a tiny yellow bikini when she hit the beach in Miami yesterday. On Sunday, she wore a black two-piece and was joined by boyfriend Hermann Nicoli for a sunny day, and the duo showed PDA in the water and drank wine on their lounge chairs. It's been a busy month of bikini time for Candice, who also put on a two-piece to pose for Victoria's Secret in St. Barts last week. Those hot shots may not have made it into the brand's "Summer of Sexy" swim catalogue — instead different shots of her were featured in the special edition alongside images of Alessandra Ambrosio and Erin Heatherton.
