Sure, red lipstick is festive, and you can't go wrong with a classic, but these stars are making a case for more moody lipstick hues this holiday season. Hollywood has been taking vampier lip colors, from deep aubergine to glossy maroon, for a spin. For darker skin tones, why not try a deep plum and gold eye shadow combination like Jourdan Dunn, above. Or if you're a little wary, pick up a burgundy lip stain à la Taylor Swift.

We'd just about stopped counting how many times Rita Ora has changed her hair this year, but it looks like she's gone and done it again. After dying her hair platinum last month, Rita has cut her length a bit shorter and added a sideswept fringe. The overall look gives off a serious rocker vibe. Are you a fan of the cut?
Just because it's Winter doesn't mean your hairstyling should suffer. We spoke to Jenny Balding, styling and grooming expert for Cutler/Redken, to find out how to get the most out of your hair this season.
POPSUGAR: We saw plenty of hair tucked into jackets coming down the runways. How can we translate the look to real life?
Jenny Balding: This is the easiest way to transform your style into a chic look. This works best on high-collared coats or jackets. Leave your hair tucked in, and loosen the roots a little with you fingers to give a nonchalant feel to your hair.
PS: What are some styles that look good with a Winter hat, but you can revive once you're indoors?
JB: Braiding your hair is a great way to style your hair in the Winter as well as Summer. Because even if it becomes a little disheveled, when you take your hat off, it will still look good — if not better, a little lived-in. [There are] so many ways to braid your hair, from the halo braid to the French braid or off to one side.
PS: Any tricks to making braids, which seem like a Summer style, feel fresh for Winter?
JB: A clean, simple side braid looks so good right now especially with a great hat. Keeping it simple is key. Sweep to one side, and braid just halfway down, and tie. This is a refreshing change from all the fishtail looks of past seasons.
PS: What are easy ways to style second-day hair for the Winter?
JB: Dry shampoo works wonders to revive second-day hair. [It] gives instant body and texture, and makes the hair more manageable to style.
PS: Any other Winter trends you want people to know they can pull of this season?
JB: For the ultimate chic style to wear with a scarf, sweep your hair up into a twisted, disheveled updo. Let flyaway strands fly, and give your hair some extra volume by dusting some Redken Powder Grip into the roots first.

While the rest of us were chowing down on some turkey on Thanksgiving Day, Selena Gomez was sizzling on the football field. She styled her chestnut hair in a curled half-updo during her halftime performance, while the Oakland Raiders played the Dallas Cowboys in the annual Thanksgiving Day matchup. Her makeup kept with the day's theme, as she opted for a cranberry cat eye. Black nail polish finished the look. Are you a fan of Selena's Thanksgiving Day style?
