For the perfect romantic updo, look no further than Monique Lhuillier's Fall 2014 bridal collection. The gowns coming down the runway were inspired by femininity and romance but with an heirloom quality, which translated to the braided updos the models wore. "We wanted the girls to look like themselves, wearing updos with a romantic, soft, and whimsical mood," Moroccanoil artistic director Antonio Corral Calero said. "The attention was on the matte texture of the hair and the intricate details of each braided bun, parted [to the] side or center, with minimal volume on top." Get a similar look for your big day or another formal affair with these step-by-step tips!

It looks like Rihanna hasn't gotten her fill of MAC Cosmetics just yet! The singer was just announced as the 2014 spokesperson for the brand's Viva Glam charitable initiatives and products. This has been a busy year for Rihanna, who has launched three makeup collections with MAC Cosmetics, including a Summer and Fall collection. Rihanna joins an illustrious list of spokespeople for Viva Glam, which includes RuPaul (the original spokesperson), Christina Aguilera, Dita Von Teese, Fergie, Lady Gaga, and, most recently, Nicki Minaj. Viva Glam was launched in 1994 as part of the MAC AIDS Fund, which helps to support men, women, and children affected by HIV and AIDS.
This week was full of surprising beauty looks. Whether it was a series of intricate braids, a bold lip color, or an unexpected haircut, celebrities were keeping us on our toes on and off the red carpet. Your ultimate weekend inspiration board is ahead!
