GQ 2010 “Men Of The Year” Party

Rapper Drake was among the eye candy at the GQ Men of the Year bash at the Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood on Wednesday night. The dapper star — named the mag’s “Breakout of the Year” — and other guests feasted on mini grilled cheese sandwiches, mini burgers from Umami Burger, mini cupcakes from SusieCakes Bakery, and more, according to USA Today.

Sexy “Twilight” werewolf Taylor Lautner flashed his megawatt smile on the red carpet. Do you think the 18-year-old will make the cut next year?

“Twilight” beefcake Kellan Lutz, who is reportedly on again with sometime girlfriend AnnaLynne McCord, was dashing in a blue pinstripe Simon Spurr suit.

Former “Heroes” star Milo Ventimiglia struck a rather stoic pose in a double-breasted gray suit.

Anna Kendrick opted for a cute Alberta Ferretti black strapless cocktail dress with a Jimmy Choo Candy clutch. Brian Atwood black and gold trim ankle strap heels complete her look.

Anna Faris looked stylish a silver simple top with sparkly black evening & burgundy suede ankle boots.

Olivia Munn paired a neutral chiffon dress with platform leopard pumps. The heels added a sultry touch to her ladylike dress. She let her hair take center stage by opting for light makeup.

A girl can never go wrong with a little black dress, and Gossip Girl‘s Katie Cassidy knew just how to work it at the 2010 GQ Men of the Year party last night in LA. Accessorizing with some bold statement earrings and a cool sleek clutch, she finished off her look with a fresh lavender manicure–to add a little color, of course!

Odette Yustman gave her sparkly cocktail dress a masculine vibe in on-trend black suede ankle boots. An oversize blazer completes the look.

Shenae Grimes showed off black platform plumps and a whole lot of leg in this getup. She paired the heels with satin evening shorts and a velvet floor length coat.

Wow! Taylor Cole adds a whole new twist to the little black dress. The dress is adorned with leather shoulder epaulets and studded leather details. It’s the sheer feature, however, that is quite the attention getter! Taylor Cole added some flair to her look with fluttering lashes and soft pink lips.

Erika Christensen went for a polished look in a black Roland Mouret Gali wool dress with folded structured shoulders teamed with matching pumps.

Kate Mara wore a chic Herve Leger cocktail dress with subtle green insets. Her look was completed with classic black pumps.

Shenae Grimes & Jessica Stroup : ‘Madhouse’ Birthday Party !

Joining together for a weekend celebration, Shenae Grimes and Jessica Stroup held a joint birthday bash at Beacher’s Madhouse at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel on Saturday night (October 23).

Presented by Samsung Galaxy S, the “90210” hotties were treated to a vaudeville-esque fete at which guests were strongly encouraged to dress the part in theatrical attire.

At one point, David Arquette (who co-owns Beacher’s) led the crowd in singing “Happy Birthday” as Shenae and Jessica were presented with a giant birthday cake along with a few other small gifts.

Also in attendance for the event were Brittany Snow, Paris and Nicky Hilton, Brandon Davis, and fellow “90210” co-stars AnnaLynne McCord, Ryan Eggold, Trevor Donovan and Michael Steger.

Style Weekly : Two-Toned Hair Locks

From anti-aging haircare to the perfect hair cut, Hollywood divas are always in on the latest ways to have healthy, youthful-looking locks.

And now a hair color effect called ombre is steadily becoming a celebrity and city girl favorite. “Ombre” literally means gradation in French, which refers to the dark-to-light fade of color that is used in the technique. Instead of color that starts at the root, darker roots blend into a lightened mid-shaft and end.

It’s a beachier, more natural looking version of the enduring “visible root” trend.

“I think it speaks to the overall organic and sustainable trend going on right now. No one wants to spend all of their time in the salon anymore, and this look means longer time between visits because it’s so natural-looking. There’s no color line of demarcation at your roots,” says Dimitrios Tsioumas, creative color director of New York and Boston’s Mizu salons, where colorists perform the effect.

The term was taken from the fashion world, where the ombre style of diffusing color is used for fabric, and is most often seen in kimonos.

“In the hair industry, we like to translate what we see in the fashion industry into hair. We’ve seen many designers showcase the ombre effect in their collections. We’re making it more natural and softer to fit into our current lifestyles,” adds Tsioumas.


As we told you last season, starlets like Ashlee Simpson are bucking conventional hair colour for the two-toned effect. The best way to achieve this look, says veteran colourist Douglas Timleck of Salvatore Leonetti Salon in Toronto, is to use a highlighting method called balayage. Instead of the usual foils or cap, “it’s hair painting that starts from the roots or lower down the strands.”


Timleck stresses that if done in a “softer, more natural method, a lot of women can carry off this look well.” Rachel Bilson’s style, for example, shows off subtle gradations on beachy highlights.

This hairstyle “works very well for younger people with a strong sense of themselves and their fashion direction,” say Timleck. Drew Barrymore’s dark crown and peroxide-dipped tips are extremely directional.

We also adore Nicole Richie’s warm iteration, which was created by celeb-fave George Papanikolas of the Andy Lecompte Salon in West Hollywood. Papanikolas first took Richie’s hair several shades darker to a medium light brown, and then used balayage technique to add highlights, starting at her natural center part. Using bleach, he painted golden blonde v-shaped tips on the ends of her hair. Then, to graduate the color, he went through her hair in big horizontal sections, backcombing each one before applying bleach in an arrow shape to the ends of the hair.

Another essential to consider about this style is the use of complementary tones. Leighton Meester’s bleached out waves are blended perfectly into her colour. Timleck says “it’s a must.”

Papanikolas applied a similar regime for Shanae Grimes’ shoulder-length locks. First he gave her balayage highlights to add progressively lighter color to her hair, followed by a round of bleach at the tips to emphasize the contrast.

Lindsay Lohan also loves keeping her ends light and roots darker. Lilo looks super hot in this amazing hair color.

Stars Go Mad For BlackBerry Torch !

“Glee” star Lea Michele, looking glam in Jenni Kayne, and the chic Christina Ricci, in a Louis Vuitton skirt and printed silk blouse, joined other celebs for the BlackBerry Torch launch party Wednesday in LA.

Sporting a boyfriend blazer, leather tulip skirt, and a funky statement necklace, Rashida Jones’ looking oh so fabulous !

“Up In the Air” cutie Anna Kendrick rocked her sleek Alice + Olivia LBD, and accessorized her outfit with Botkier “Paige” booties.

“Twilight’s” Nikki Reed wore her heels with a Sea leopard print dress. Love the print and the overall look !

Michelle Trachtenberg may have gone for an all dark look, but her Dannijo statement necklace takes this look from a 4 to a 9 out of 10. She’s also wearing my favourite blazer, as I love those satin lapels which is from H&M. J Brand jeans, Stuart Weitzman heels and Giuseppe Zanotti clutch complete the look.

Sheane Grimes toughen up her Zara blazer by adding Helmut Lang skinny leather pants, a striped tank, a small crucifix and scuffed boots.

“90210″ actress Jessica Lowndes attended the Blackberry Torch Launch Party in LA wearing an LBD. Her Rock & Republic v-neck zipper front dress with bandage detailing at the waist was paired with a black clutch, black ASOS ankle boots and Samantha Wills jewelry. The only pop of colour comes from her pink lips.

Kristin Cavallari went nude, well kind of, in a fitted-ruched camel dress and black stand-out accessories.

Sporting a bouffant ’60s-style hairdo, Drew Barrymore positively glowed in a mosaic chain mail frock and nude Yves St. Laurent platform pumps at the Nylon + Express August Denim Issue Party in West Hollywood Tuesday night. Where did Drew find her gorgeous dress? “It was $25 and she bought it at a vintage store in Austin, Texas,” her rep told StyleList.com.

Carmen Electra was surprisingly demure in a lacy, tiered mini, bow-adorned belt, and black heels.

Opting for a casual ensemble, Lake Bell paired a delicate floral mini with a sheer olive top and a black sleeveless zipped vest. Suede booties and a fold-over clutch completed her look.

“X-Men” hottie James Marsden proved that the simplest things in life — such as a soft gray sweater and perfectly fitted jeans — are often the best. Yum.

Channing Tatum’s better half, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, rocked the red carpet in a cute, textured LBD and two-tone peep-toe booties.

Former “Hills” starlet Stephanie Pratt’s tanzilla skin tone was dangerously close to matching the color of her dress.

Shenae Grimes deivered some major fashion disaster with her denim shorts, tube top, and animal-print cape.

Looking more 17 than 37, Gabrielle Union was deliciously summery in a floral print mini, tailored white blazer, and funky, strappy sandals.

Maggie Q showed up to support her new highly-anticipated series’ Nikita’. Maggie shared, “There’s a hook after every episode on Nikita. There’s always this thing that makes you go, ‘What?’ and makes you want to tune in for the next week. And it’s all very real. It’s not contrived, it’s not something that we’re cheesily trying to hook you in with. It genuinely is just solid storyline and, ‘I want to know why that person did this or where they’re going with this’.”
