American Bandstand was a television institution from 1952 until 1989, launching some of the most iconic acts of the 20th century, from Connie Francis to Janet Jackson and Madonna. And at its helm from 1956 until the show ended, the legendary Dick Clark left his mark on decades of music and style. So to honor his legacy, see how the acts and the dancers on Bandstand evolved alongside American music now.

Part of the reason the palette worked so well is that makeup artist Jenn Streicher kept Emily's eyes and cheeks simply elegant, opting for a clean-skin palette to begin with, starting with Hourglass No. 28 Primer Serum as a base, followed by Dolce & Gabbana Perfect Finish Foundation. But another reason the palette worked so well is all thanks to the science of color. Pink (as seen on Emily's lips) when paired with green (as seen on her earrings and in her frock) is a winning combination. The reason is because pinkish tones are directly opposite of greenish tones on the color wheel, so Emily's overall ensemble made for one truly spellbinding style.
How does one even begin to make such a scent, though? With an actual laptop, of course. An unopened MacBook Pro was sent to Air Aroma's suppliers in France, and from there, the noses "used the scents they observed unboxing the new Apple computer to source fragrance samples." The scent isn't being mass produced as of now, but there are undoubtedly some gadget junkies who'd probably be more than happy to catch a whiff of this unconventional fragrance.

We're happy to present this story from our friends at Allure:
Track and field star Jessica Ennis, currently in training for the London 2012 Olympics, recently admitted that she always competes in a full face of makeup. And Ennis's explanation of her race ritual to The Daily Mail certainly makes sense: "I definitely think if I feel I look good, it makes me feel more confident," she told the London paper.
Her story also made me wonder exactly what effect makeup could have on your complexion if you are really sweating up a storm. "Wearing makeup while working out can hinder some of the natural ways your skin adjusts to exertion, like sweating and dilating pores," says New York City dermatologist Erin Gilbert. "This can be a disaster as it often leads to clogged pores and breakouts." If you are like Ennis and feel the need to not go bare-faced, get her tips on how to protect your skin while you sweat:
Take Solange Knowles, for instance, who applied tangerine shadow and lipstick for a bold yet cohesive effect. Then there was Leelee Sobieski who stirred things up even more, her vibrant red lip color lending an added pop to her orange sherbet-shaded eye look. For Dakota Fanning, though, it was all about ethereal style, as she offset her halo-esque headband with coordinating shimmery gold and apricot eyes. In the immortal words of the Brady's, "It's a Sunshine Day," indeed.
