It’s one small step for manicures—one giant leap for your beauty routine. Earlier this week, we posted a picture to our Instagram of the celestial nails worn by one of our editors, and since our followers wanted to know more about the look, we put together a step-by-step guide on how to recreate it! While the swirled nebula pattern may seem hard, you only need a makeup sponge and a handful of your favorite hues to try it out. Click “See the Photos” now to get the complete breakdown, and be sure to follow us on Instagram at @InStyleMagazine for even more fashion and beauty inspiration.
Wedding expert David Tutera helps brides plan lavish affairs down to the detail, from flowers to dress, and now even jewelry! He just launched the Embellish Collection, which features more than 300 designs under $300, and includes everything from romantic rosettes to dramatic Art Deco pendants. The pieces, which accommodate a range of bridal personalities, are meant to “add to your overall look, but not distract from your personality,” Tutera told InStyle.com exclusively. “They add that sparkle to your eye and on your body.” Beginning Tuesday, the line will be available exclusively online, but our readers can start shopping early by logging in with “instyle” and the password “beyourbest.” Click through to see our favorites and find a few of own!

Don’t stash your shorts just yet! Make a classic pair of black shorts winter-ready with the addition of opaque tights. Ginnifer Goodwin and Alexa Chung wore nearly identical outfits, with the exception of Chung’s warmth-adding hosiery. It doesn’t get much easier than this!

It’s almost here! Two weeks ago, Taylor Swift debuted the single “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” a girl anthem about giving a bad boyfriend the boot from her upcoming album, Red. And, though she’s been busy launching her new Wonderstruck Enchanted fragrance and romancing a Kennedy, she found time to squeeze in a video shoot for her hit single. (A single that’s already sold nearly one million copies on iTunes, thankyouverymuch.) The video premieres on MTV tonight at 7:59 pm, and here’s a snippet of what you can expect! Watch Swift belt out the tune while wearing adorable floral dress (her uniform) and her signature scarlet lips while bouncing around an old house with friends. Doesn’t she make breaking up look fun? Watch the clip above!

The Venice Film Festival kicked off last night with cute couples leading the red carpet parade. Kate Hudson (in Atelier Versace) and fiancé Matt Bellamy (frontman of British band Muse) smiled at the premiere of her film The Reluctant Fundamentalist, where they met up with Kate’s co-star Liev Schreiber and Naomi Watts (in Marchesa). And that’s just the beginning! See more memorable red carpet moments from the festival in the gallery.
The days of summer may be numbered by now, but that doesn’t mean we’re seeing the last of the humidity. To keep your bangs pin-straight as the water levels in the air rise like Zooey Deschanel, work a small dab of smoothing serum into them while they are still wet. Then blow-dry straight with a vented or round brush. While it may be tempting to dry the rest of your hair before tackling your bangs, try reversing the order instead. By starting with the front pieces of hair, you’ll get a better idea of how your style will look right away, letting your bangs act as almost a guide for the rest of your strands. Lock in the sleek texture by giving your fringe a quick pass with a flat iron, making sure to bend the ends inward for slight, natural-looking movement.
