Take advantage of the last precious days of summer and rock an eye-popping shade of polish like Kristen Stewart and Reese Witherspoon. According to celebrity manicurist Ashlie Johnson, who works with both stars, it’s all about high-octane hues this summer. “I’m really in love with anything bright—the colors look so good with a tan and with sexy sandals,” Johnson said. “For both the hands and toes, I’m obsessed with tangerine hues like Chanel’s Holiday and pinks like Rose Exuberant” ( chanel.com for $26 each).

Olivia Palermo styles herself, and we seriously want everything in her closet (she makes our Look of the Day constantly!). Palermo is the master of mixing high and low, with Zara and Topshop mixing seamlessly with Valentino and Chanel, which is why we caught up with her to find out her ultimate shopping secret. “Look for what you don’t have in your wardrobe and what you’re wanting,” she told InStyle.com. “I like to browse online, but I also like to go into the stores and see the quality of it.” Also, she makes sure not to over-shop. “I don’t go out every day but when I walk upon a store and I see something cute I get it,” she said. “I shop throughout my travels, but I’m not always on a mission!” Click through the gallery to see more of her most memorable looks ever.
Marilyn Monroe passed away 50 years ago today, and even five decades after she left us, the blonde bombshell continues to enchant so many—Hollywood’s finest included. Click through to see all the young ladies who have played Marilyn Monroe, onscreen and off.
Searching for the perfect nude lipstick? Look no further! We loved Jessica Biel‘s shade at the Total Recall premiere, which bordered on a warm nude and a sweet candy rose. ”As a contrast to her baby pink dress and chunky jewels, I created a fresh look with a modern edge,” said her makeup artist Kara Yoshimoto Bua. “Her skin texture is extremely natural-looking with soft cheeks and lip, while her eyes are slightly elongated.” After using a nude liner to give the star’s lips subtle definition, Bua used Chanel’s Rouge Coco Lip Color in Superstition.
