2013 will go down in beauty history as the year of the It haircut, and we've got plenty of them to choose from. Jennifer Lawrence recently drove the star power of the pixie up a few notches, but there were plenty of pixies before her. Jada Pinkett Smith also knows a thing or two about It haircuts, as she's recently been sporting 2013's edgy style: the undercut. But 2013's first It haircut was somewhere between edgy and sweet, and it was the lob. Nicole Richie was one of the first ladies to rock this style, and she's kept it all year. All three of these styles are synonymous with 2013, but which was your favorite cut of the year?
It's the holiday season, which means it's high time we start getting our nails in the festive spirit. So toss out your deep, moody hues of Autumn, and bring in your bright and cheery colors of Winter. That means reds, whites, and loads of sparkles are on our radar, and apparently celebrities are feeling the same way too. Miranda Kerr, with her cherry-red manicure (above), and other stars have been playing around with festive manicures for a while now. But if you're still in need of inspiration, then see what other colors our favorite celebs have been seen wearing when you scroll!

We can assure you that Gwyneth Paltrow's holiday plan is much more glamorous than ours (obviously). She starts her shopping two months ahead, after all! Recently InStyle sat down with the actress to get her Christmas shopping tips, and we had to share because, well, who doesn't want to celebrate like Gwyneth?
The season of gift shopping is in full swing, so we got some serious strategy advice from none other than style star Gwyneth Paltrow. The face of Boss Jour Pour Femme — a delicious new scent that blends florals with citrus — and mom of two dishes on her favorite gift to buy for others, her go-to holiday traditions, and her favorite beauty look for the holidays.
How far in advance do you start your Christmas shopping?
I generally start my Christmas shopping at least two months before. I like to get things personalized and my gifts usually require some advance time. I’m definitely a planner.
Do you rope anyone in to help you?
I’m a solo shopper; I don’t rope my friends into it. I spend a lot of time searching for things on the Internet.
You said you like to personalize your presents — is that getting things engraved on them?
Yes, I think it’s really nice that when someone opens a present it has something personal. Last year I gave everyone these beautiful handmade cutting boards, everyone in the family’s name was engraved on one side. I’ve done ceramic plates, jewelry with initials. It takes it from being a normal present to being something that’s actually really special and requires a lot of thought and planning.
Fragrance makes a great gift at Christmas. How would you go about picking a fragrance?
I think it’s nice to buy a fragrance that they’ve never tried, or buy them their favorite. It’s a luxury gift, it’s personal and it’s always wonderful to get perfume. I think it’s a nice time to try something new. But for people who are really married to their scent it’s also a really good time to give them that.

British beauties stepped out in London tonight for the British Fashion Awards, and while the gowns were worth gawking at, we couldn't keep our eyes off the stunning beauty looks, too. From Poppy Delevingne's teased hair and flirty lashes to Kate Moss's sexy blowout and glossy pout, see all the style stars' beauty looks up close.
Dev might just be the coolest woman we've ever met. She got her first tattoo at 16 with her dad in tow, she dyed her hair blue to coincide with the mood of her latest EP, she idolizes Jenna Lyons just like us, and she wears a cat eye to the grocery store. "I love eyeliner," the CK One color brand ambassador said in a recent interview. "It took me a good six months to get really comfortable doing [a cat eye]. I have to hold my breath, and I usually kneel my elbow on the sink for balance. But I'm pretty decent now; I can do it in the car." So not only is Dev a singing superstar, but she also has better skills than the average makeup artist.
While Dev's music has a definite hip-hop and dance vibe (think the bouncing bass in "Like a G6" and "Bass Down Low"), her style is chic and classy. "I like to keep it simple, sexy, a little tailored sometimes, and then my tattoos or nails or hair would be the extra touch," she said. It's clear her hair is her favorite accessory. In the last year alone, Dev has cycled through many different hair colors, from black to bleach blond and now her bluish purple hue. "I was just feeling the vibes — it sounds corny — but the vibes from my EP are blue," she said. "When I listen to it and the way the songs flow and what they're about, I see bluish hues." Find out more about Dev's beauty routine after the jump.
We had to do a double take when we spotted Sienna Miller's hair on the red carpet at the British Fashion Awards. Has the actress dyed her hair a subtle shade of pink? It seems so, but it Sienna chose an interesting part of her hair to highlight. Instead of all-over color or an ombré effect, Sienna dyed only the front midsection of her hair with a subtle rose gold hue. We've seen this look on her before, though. Back in 2011, Sienna stepped out sporting pink hair during a trip to Ibiza with Tom Sturridge. Clearly she knows what she likes, but are you a fan of her pink hair?
It was a glamorous year for beauty on the red carpet, with a bevy of celebrities showing face at the year's biggest award shows. From Jennifer Lawrence's winning updo at the Oscars to Beyoncé Knowles's slick ponytail at the Grammy Awards, stars loved trying on stunning hairstyles. And we saw plenty of red carpet trends, too. Vintage waves, sideswept styles, and edgy undercuts all came out on top from this year's red carpets. We're rounded up 2013's best award show beauty moments. Do you agree with our choices?
At the red carpet premiere of The Class of '92 in London on Sunday, Victoria Beckham was in full support of her husband David Beckham. And, coincidentally, we were in full support of her sexy gunmetal smoky eye. Victoria is usually one for neutral yet striking makeup looks, so we were more than excited to see her sporting this bold look. The timing couldn't be more perfect, either. Victoria's gunmetal shadow is perfect for the holidays, especially for ladies who aren't so keen on full-on sparkles. She finished the look off with some brushed-up brows and a pale, nude lip.
