Between new haircuts, updated styles, slicked locks and lots of ombré, hair certainly stole the show in this week's celebrity beauty round-up. Nicole Richie set the pace with her first official appearance since she took a trip down fringe lane (hubby Joel Madden didn't notice — ah, men), while Kate Middleton mixed things up with wavier hair than usual (not to mention that pregnancy glow). But it wasn't all about hair. Isla Fisher totally stole the show at The Great Gatsby world premiere, thanks to her bright red lips and cats-eye liner — see that look and more when you click through!
This week, it's like all our favourite beauties got the memo to step it up a notch — everyone looked next-level amazing. It was hard work selecting only ten, but gosh, these ten are superb. Rihanna owned the red carpet at the Grammys with her beautiful curls and perfect skin, while Miley Cyrus' red-hot red lip at the Marc Jacobs show in New York had everyone talking for all the right reasons. Alexa Chung was understated and cool, with a bright pop to spice things up, and Olivia Palermo? Well, her hair's so perfectly shiny it's criminal. There's much more to see — just click through to check it all out!
If there's one thing we know from looking at this week's beauty round-up, it's that the bold lip is a makeup trend that's here to stay. Alexa Chung, Rihanna and Kristen Stewart let their lips do all the talking, and we think it totally paid off for them. Going all the way when it came to staying natural, Lara Bingle gave us a lesson in how to do nude makeup the right way — and her couldn't take our eyes off her beautiful ice-blue eyes as a result. French actress Berenice Marlohe went the other way with some seriously heavy eyeshadow playing up her big eyes, while Ashley Greene went for a soft and feminine look. One thing they all had in common? They all looked beautiful. Click through the gallery to see who rounds out the top 10 and copy the looks at home!
We know him best as Lara Bingle's main makeup man, but what Max May is known for in beauty circles, is the bronze eye/red lip combo. This beauty look is so Summer, and works perfectly with dewy skin and thick lashes. Max has put together a very cool, fly-on-the-wall style video revealing how to create the look at home (and wanted Bella readers to see it first!), and let us just say, we picked up more than a few tips. He also recommends products along the way which we love, because if anyone knows a good luminous foundation or highlighting prod — it's Mr May. Enjoy beauties.
Out and about in New York promoting her latest album, Red, we spotted Taylor Swift donning a very fitting cherry red lip for her publicity meets. The colour is particularly vibrant on the petite star due to her blonde locks and near perfect pout, but it's a look that suits everyone thanks to its classic roots. Neat red lips were first made famous by screen sirens including Marilyn Monroe, and as the years have progressed, so have the techniques, tricks and tips for getting the high impact lipstick look to stay put. To find out our tips for the perfect red lip, keep reading.
Just one quick glance at this week's roundup of the best celebrity beauty looks tells us everything we need to know about up-and-coming hair and makeup trends. Keen to know what's on the ever-so-beautiful horizon? Bright lips are here to stay — only, they've taken on a more matte turn, and are looking sexier than ever (think just-bitten looks like Phoebe Tonkin's, and loud statements like Annabella Barber). Long, lustrous hair is in, so if you've got it, flaunt it — just like Sofia Vergara and Kristen Stewart did over the week. And eyes? Well, if they aren't making statements, we don't know what is. Click through the gallery to see who rocked some serious eye art recently, and discover exactly what needs to be on your beauty radar now. Go on, it's so pretty in there!
One of tonight's Golden Girls, Carrie Bickmore is one of the rare few adding a pop of colour to the Logies red carpet with her beauty look. The Project co-host has stuck to the golden beauty rule of playing up either your pout or peepers, opting for a high-shine red gloss to match her gown. A subtle gold cream shadow, blush and illuminiser finish the makeup look perfectly and for the hair, Carrie's gone for '70s-style movement that curls outwards. She may have gone for budget heels — picking up a pair for $15 from Kmart — but we think Alex Perry would allow us to say that her beauty look is nothing short of "expensive"! What do you think of Carrie's look?

Kim Kardashian, Teresa Palmer, Rachel Zoe, Molly Sims and many more glamorous ladies came together to celebrate the opening of Valentino's Rodeo Drive flagship store in Beverly Hills on Tuesday night. With most stars clad in Valentino (what else?), there was a vast array of beauty looks on offer, from pretty ponytails to chic chignons to braided up 'dos to rich red lips and berry stains. The only thing tying them all together? Their flawless complexions.
Wow. That's how we feel about Milla Jovovich. Her Oscars beauty look is flawless: classic, modern, elegant, effortless. It's got it all. And we're hard pressed to pick a favourite part. The rose gold shadow, the flush of petal pink blush, the matte red lip: it's all perfection. We particularly love the softness of her wavy short style. It's a great example of how versatile short hairstyles can be. The look to beat so far. Do you agree? Or did it miss the mark for you?

Michelle Williams looked magnifique at the Parisian premiere of My Week With Marilyn. Held at the Cinema Gaumont Marignan last night, the 31-year-old teamed her soft pixie crop with sparkling gunmetal liner and a raspberry red lip. It's a slightly fresher and flirtier look than the blood red she sported at the BAFTAs earlier this week and we love how she's continued the colour theme with co-ordinating nails. It's also a stellar example of how well red works on pink.
