On the other hand, there are also edgy looks that push the envelope without being impossible to re-create at home. While the looks coming down the runway ranged from sweet to somewhat scary, we selected the top 22 anyone can try right now.

Gwyneth Paltrow proves that she still has what it takes to be a leading lady and a magazine cover model on the May issue of Harper's Bazaar. When it comes to her beauty regimen, the 40-year-old star shared with the magazine, "I use organic products, but I get lasers. It's what makes life interesting, finding the balance between cigarettes and tofu."
And while she'll never try Botox again, she isn't ruling out the more invasive procedures. "I would be scared to go under the knife, but you know, talk to me when I'm 50," she said. "I'll try anything." We're excited for the upcoming release of her latest film, Iron Man 3, and you can be sure we'll be watching out for her red-carpet hair and makeup.
Mercury is rising, which means your hair will too . . . off your shoulders, that is. So why not take some inspiration from Olga Kurylenko and her effortlessly styled bun? The low-slung style was accented with delicate braids on the sides, which she wore to the Los Angeles premiere of her latest film Oblivion.
Olga's style is surprisingly easy to pull off. After rough-drying your hair, add a texturizing product like L'Oréal Professionnel True Grip ($17, LPSalons.com) so your hair is easier to work with. Next, section off two one-inch sections of hair right above each ear. Pull the rest of your hair into a low bun and secure with pins. Next, braid the two sections above your ears and wrap the ends around the bun. Loosely curl any pieces that frame your face and finish with a mist of hair spray.
We can't help but get excited when the Spring nail polish shades come out, because we know there are always plenty of bright, vibrant options from which to choose. When it comes to showing off those nails, here are seven colors you should spring for at the salon. On Kirbie: Club Monaco.

From hair to nails (and everything in between), discover new ways to wear lemon-toned shades this season.
