Forget about Halloween for a second — because there's another day with a fancy dress code that we're a little more interested in at Fab HQ... Derby Day! Come Saturday the crowds will be frocked up in their black and white best, and subsequently the Sugar eds are knee deep in outfit preparations. Whether you're on the hunt for the perfect monochrome frock, or are just in need of little head candy, the fruits of our office online searches might just come in handy. Click through to see what we'll be wearing to celebrate the Spring Carnival's chicest race day . . .
For the second week running, sunglasses have topped our must-update-as-soon-as-humanly-possible accessories list for the Spring (14 days, and counting!). Last Thursday we'd fallen hard to Alessandra Ambrosio's reflective, mirrored lenses but this week's obsession was driven by Rihanna's pale and interesting shades. The songstress wore these hexagonal Miu Miu frames while soaking up the sun in in St. Jean de Luz, France, and we like the combination of a graphic frame-shape in an the unexpectedly pale hue. Fun, fresh, face-candy ahoy! Step this way to shop our online edit. . .
When the cold, wet weather hits, lips inevitably get drier. That's why it's never been more important to have a good lip balm, or two, at hand. Sure, we can all speak of the benefits of cult classics like Carmex, Blistex and Nivea lip balms, but there are some other big names that you should familiarise yourself with. From new releases to boutique buys, here's our edit of the 10 best lip balms to add to your collection before the temperatures drop even further!
Liv Tyler had her American Idol judge father, Steven, on her arm for the LA premiere of her new movie Super last night. The Aerosmith frontman has been busy promoting his Fox program and bonding with his new buds Ryan Seacrest and Jennifer Lopez, but he seemed happy to support his daughter's big evening and even show some paternal PDA. Her co-stars in the indie superhero film Ellen Page and Rainn Wilson also stepped onto the red carpet, and later Rainn and Liv tore up the dance floor with their crazy moves.
The Office's Rainn Wilson is leaving his desk job to take on a masked alter ego in Super. Wilson stars as Frank, a married man whose wife (Liv Tyler) leaves him for a drug dealer (Kevin Bacon). Upset over the split, Frank decides to win her back by taking on the persona of Crimson Bolt, a violent hero who wields a wrench as his weapon. To help him in his endeavours, a girl from a comic book store (Ellen Page) offers herself up to be his sidekick.
Sound familiar? It should, because by all appearances, Super plays out like a ripoff of Kick-Ass. It's impossible not to see the similarities between the films' concepts or how Page's Boltie resembles Hit Girl. That said, Super looks more quirky-indie and, unfortunately, not as good. My other complaint: could we please see more Nathan Fillion? The actor only pops up once in the trailer. Take a look, and share your assessment after the jump.
Easiest way to update an outfit? A new pair of shades will add edge to S-to-the-implest of outfits. This season we're spoilt for choice with statement frames that'll up the wow factor of your summer wardrobe. Face camouflaging frames are totes necessary for those post beach swims when your mascara's run, AND with the plethora of cats eye, coloured wayfarer, oversized or John Lenon-esque circular styles around, it's never been more fun picking a new pair. Oh, and they come in handy for discreetly checking out boys at the beach, too! Click through to start your sunnies shopping right here.
