Stars are always out looking their very swankiest during Paris Haute Couture Week, when designers like John Galliano and Karl Lagerfeld unveil their dreamiest, most artistic pieces. With tons of parties, glamorous people from all over the world, and high fashion folk to impress, it's easy to see why people are at their best during these events, and also why we can learn from their party-proofing makeup and hair tricks. I've gathered five of the smartest celebrity style ideas from the haute couture front rows. They may not be as wild as what's on the runway, but they're plenty useful for a girls' night out.
Whether it's your first night out with your hubby after becoming a mom, a first date with a special beau, or an interview for your dream job, Walgreens knows the importance of these special moments.
That's why Walgreens has created Beauty Within, a web series that brings us real beauty stories from real-world women like us. With the help of a team of beauty experts, these women learn tips and tricks to unleash their radiant inner beauty, all while sharing their special moments with us and the rest of the world.
In addition to Beauty Within, Walgreens is also running a special Toss and Turn Heads sweepstakes, which will award one lucky winner and her best friend with a trip to NYC and a makeover with a professional makeup artist.

They say the secret to winning an Oscar is "playing ugly:" bad skin, a prosthetic nose, a little extra weight (or a grotesque weight loss), and you're a shoo-in. (Remember all the talk surrounding Charlize Theron in Monster and Nicole Kidman in The Hours?) Based on this criteria, the obvious Oscar winner this year is... everybody!
The Academy Award nominations were announced this week, and if there's one theme that unites the movies and their leading ladies, it's a lack of glamour (with the possible exception of Barbie in Toy Story 3). For Blue Valentine, Michelle Williams gained weight and spent the entire film makeup-free. Melissa Leo wore her character's age—and hard life—with conviction in The Fighter. In True Grit, Hailee Steinfeld was covered in dirt (natch). Other makeunders: Annette Bening and Julianne Moore in The Kids are All Right, and the women of The Social Network, who are extremely convincing as makeup-free college students. Even Black Swan, which used makeup to underscore its darkest themes, can't exactly be described as beautiful. The pale skin, heavy black makeup, and red eyeliner is sinister, not ethereal. And star Natalie Portman, having lost 20 pounds for the role, looks emaciated to the point of being just moments away from collapse.
What do you think—is it easier to consider a woman's role important and Oscar-worthy if she's done something to temper her beauty?

You can't keep a good (shirtless, dreamy, funny) man down. Professional hunk Isaiah Mustafa is back on behalf of Old Spice, and we're almost embarrassingly excited to see his forthcoming commercials for scents inspired by locales such as Komodo and Fiji. Congratulations, Wieden+Kennedy ad team. By bringing Isaiah back, you've succeeded in making us actually like advertising. Here's a teaser.
I'm clearly pretty excited for the show, especially since I'm always on the lookout for over-involved Halloween makeup ideas (if it doesn't take at least an hour and involve a pound of cream base, I'm not interested). Are you jazzed too, though? To check out a time-lapse video of some cool FX transformations, just keep reading.
