Spring trends guide 2012 | Hollywood yohana



Get the look! We have the secrets behind Lea Michele, Emma Stone, Kristen Wiig, and Zooey Deschanel’s hair and makeup from the Golden Globes red carpet! | Hollywood yohana

Here’s the thing about award shows: you don’t realize how versatile a starlet’s hair and makeup are until you see all the photos the next day. Because after the show ends, the parties begin—and while changing an outfit between events is common, hair and makeup usually stay the same.
Not only that, it’s always impressive to see how well an updo holds or a smoky eye lasts throughout the night, proving that product and technique really do make all the difference! We got the low down from some of the stylists responsible for making the starlets look their best at the Golden Globes—and we’re sharing their tips with you!


Spotted: Carey Mulligan does the kitten flick | Hollywood yohana

It would have been very easy for Carey Mulligan to do a full-on cat eye with this Roland Mouret dress—it begs for retro accompaniments. However, at last week’s London Film Critics’ Circle Awards Mulligan opted for the kitten flick, a trend that’s been gaining momentum since Dolce &Gabbana showed it on their Spring 2012 runway. Mulligan keeps the rest of her look very simple—almost too simple!—with a light wash of rosy lipgloss and a hint of blush on the apples of her cheeks. What do you think? Does Mulligan appear too “daytime” for a red carpet, or does it work?

Rose does Joe Fresh! Michelle loves bright nails! Our 4 beauty picks from the Screen Actors Guild Awards | Hollywood yohana

It seemed like many were playing it safe on the red carpet at the Screen Actors Guild Awards this weekend. The dresses were pretty, but there was nothing overtly jaw-dropping, and in terms of beauty the trend seemed to lean towards keeping it simple. Dare we say that the stars (and their stylists!) are holding back until the Oscars? We’ll have to wait until February 26 to find out. But until then, here are four looks that managed to stand out:


Adrian Wu attempts to shake last season’s negative reviews. Did he (over)do it? | Hollywood yohana

41 sunbathed shots of attendees sporting spring collections outside fashion week | Hollywood yohana

The heavens certainly behaved themselves for the second day of Toronto Fashion Week, allowing attendees to show off their no doubt newly purchased (or borrowed) spring styles sans typically cumbersome March outerwear. There was Ainsley Kerr, in a mega-printed dress from the Chloé Comme Parris spring collection, Amanda Lew Kee in her printed T-shirt, and our very own Bernadette Morra, who debuted a look from Martin Lim‘s latest collection. And what about that dude in the neon? That’s our camera genius stepping out to play. Hi Lewis!

Beth Ditto joins the ranks of M.A.C’s unconventional icons with a collection to launch in June | Hollywood yohana

Beth Ditto, singer and long-time fashion darling (the Kaiser loves her) is the subject of makeup gossip today: M.A.C Cosmetics announced that she has collaborated on a new collection, set to debut in June. No word yet on exactly what we can expect, but some sleuthing around the campaign photo suggests only good things: black liquid liner, bright pink lipstick, nail art, and pastel shades abound.
This also places Ditto alongside M.A.C’s other unconventional style icons, including Dame Edna, Iris Apfel, and Johnny Weir. The beauty brand is certainly known for being progressive, so it’s exciting when they open up the spotlight to those who would likely go unnoticed by other mass retailers. We can only dream of the other names on M.A.C’s radar! Who would you like to see in a future collaboration?

Today in questionable Rihanna news: a new tattoo and a new TV show | Hollywood yohana

Rihanna debuted a new tattoo on Twitter yesterday and it’s, well, interesting. In an apparent homage to 2Pac, she now has “Thug Life” across her knuckles in pale-pink ink. First thought: we’re really into her her pale-pink pointy nails! Second thought: the red lipstick she’s wearing is also pretty! (Can you tell we’re trying to distract ourselves from really taking in the fact that Rihanna—with her millions of dollars and many mansions—wants to play like she’s a thug?) Anyway, she’s not interested in what anyone else thinks, telling one fan who called her on it to “shut up” and then proclaiming she was “#overit.”
Whether you’re into her new tattoo or not, you’ll be seeing a lot more of it: it was just announced that Rihanna is co-hosting a yet-to-be-named reality TV show. The 10-episode series will follow her quest to find a top fashion designer (hmm… have we heard this one before?) and the winner will create an outfit that Rihanna will wear at London’s Wireless Festival. Perhaps potential contestants should start listening to 2Pac for some winning inspiration?

Would You Wear Dakota Fanning's Little Red Riding...Wrap? | Hollywood yohana

Dakota Fanning

We've panned the "little red riding hood" look before. It wasn't cute when Sienna Miller channeled the fictional character for her outerwear choices, and it was slightly disturbing when Nicki Minaj showed up to the Grammys in her sinister, scarlet getup. (She had us hoping the big, bad wolf would show up and shred that outfit.) But when we saw Dakota Fanning arrive to Cosmopolitan's Fun Fearless Awards in NYC with a Little Red Riding Hood-inspired wrap draped on her shoulders, we took pause.

Here, we finally saw a version of the look that didn't repel us. It actually looked, dare we say it, very au courant. Probably because the crimson stole was just a small component of her overall ensemble, instead of dominating the look as in Nicki and Sienna's cases. And also because Dakota is actually a young, rosy-faced teen who slips more easily into the Red Riding Hood aesthetic. Whatever the reason, we like how she styled the wrap with the silver cutout sheath dress that were both from Miu Miu. The red stole stopped her from being washed out in her pearly frock and her glittery clutch added just the right touch of glam.

Alexander Skarsgård reappears at the Vanity Fair party. James Franco, George Clooney, Elizabeth Olsen, and Juliette Lewis were there too! | Hollywood yohana

After the Melancholia party at Hugo Boss, we moseyed on over to Scarpetta at the Thompson Hotel for the Vanity Fair party, hoping to calm our Skarsgård-induced heart palpitations. Well, turns out that they actually increased; we spotted the vamp Viking right as we walked in! To boot, the Skars was embracing a one Juliette Lewis. Old friends? We hope something far more salacious. (We had a whole story going, but would rather not share.) The soiree, officially billed as the Vanity Fair/(Belvedere) RED/Fox Searchlight party, hosted the casts of The Descendants and Martha Marcy May Marlene a.k.a. George Clooney, Elizabeth Olsen, Hugh Dancy, and Sarah Paulson. James Franco was there too, sporting a patchy beard, lumpy sweater, and plenty of grimy sex appeal. (Yeah, we know you’re with us.) Also on hand? A buffet table of delicious finger foods that we’re pretty sure no one was touching except for us.

Raf Simons is out, while the real Jil might be back in at Jil Sander! What does this mean for Dior? And for our Sander addiction? | Hollywood yohana

It’s in-and-out at Jil Sander camp this week after the German fashion house announced this morning that Raf Simons will be presenting his last collection as creative director this Saturday.
The announcement comes amid (double!) speculation that Simons and founder Jil Sander will be making big moves in the near future. Simons has long been considered to be John Galliano’s imminent replacement at Dior, something fashion heavyweights (and us, of course) are gunning for.
And then there’s Sander, who was recently spotted at textile fair Première Vision where she told WWD Japan that she had a top secret new project that would be announced during the Milan collections. And look at that—it’s Milan Fashion Week! It seems a little too coincidental that her namesake house would be shaking things up at the same time, especially with rumours that the 68 year-old-designer could be back at the helm in less than a month.

This is just so much good news speculation! We love Sander’s J+ collaboration at Uniqlo and are huge proponents of Simons’ colourful and minimalist aesthetic, as well as what it could do for Dior. Could things really work out so perfectly?


How to wear prints: The 3-step how to as we break down the Marni at H&M collection | Hollywood yohana

Susie Sheffman: How to wear prints

When it comes to pairing prints and patterns, our fashion director, Susie Sheffman, is the resident mixologist. She’s also Marni-obsessed: “When I discovered the outlet in Milan, it was game over,” she says. “Cardigans, sexless sandals and printed sweet nothings have been making their way into my suitcase on my twice-yearly pilgrimages to Milan fashion week ever since.” Two weeks ahead of the Marni at H&M collection (launching on March 8), she shares her tips on mastering this spring trend.
3 tips on how to wear prints »

“In my imagination, Consuelo styles her collections blindfolded. Bold colours, graphic patterns and tribal-inspired prints all blend effortlessly together. Don’t second-guess yourself. Just dive right in!”

“Take one printed piece and mix it in with your solid-coloured pieces. Try a fabulous graphic print top with a neutral skirt or trousers, or pair your patterned piece with a more familiar print, like leopard.”

“This spring, the new message is dare to match your prints head-to-toe. Wear a floral-print jacket with a matching pant and even go so boldly as to match your bag.”


We spot Emmanuelle Alt, Ashley Greene, Rachel Zoe, and Jane Keltner De Valle at Donna Karan and Phillip Lim | Hollywood yohana

The style snaps continue from the streets of New York! This time around we’re outside Donna Karan and 3.1 Phillip Lim, catching colourful shots of neon—like Sarah Rutson’s bright demin jacket and Miroslava Duma’s tie-dyed Proenza top. Also worth noting: from Rachel Zoe to Joanna Hillman, the statement sunglass still reign supreme.
