For the 100th anniversary of Vanity Fair, Kate Upton took on a classic pinup style with waves inspired by Jayne Mansfield, complete with classic red lipstick and matching polish. You can easily re-create the hair with tips from the cover's stylist, Oribe.
The look starts with Gel Serum ($58) on wet hair to achieve a sleek blow-dry. Section by section, use an oversize two-inch curling iron to create bountiful curls. While hair cools, pin curls flat on the head in the direction you want them to fall. Finish the style by releasing the curls and brushing them out; run Supershine Moisturizing Cream ($49) through your strands for a high-shine look. And for the nails, celebrity manicurist Deborah Lippmann used Lady Is a Tramp ($17), a dark burgundy shade that paired perfectly with Upton's brick-red lipstick.
Spotted all over New York Fashion Week, the sleek ponytail is trending everywhere from Jason Wu's latest collection to Victoria Beckham's show. But it's not just appearing on the runway. At the Third Person premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, celebrity hairstylist Mara Roszak was in no mood to wait until Spring 2014 to try this look on Mila Kunis. Inspired by Mila's white Burberry dress, a center-parted low pony only seemed fitting for the dress's deep V and sexy silhouette.
To get this look, Roszak started by prepping Mila's hair with L'Oreal Elnett Heat Protect Spray (at drugstores). After blowing Mila's hair dry with a round brush, Roszak then created a middle part, teasing at the crown for volume. Next, Roszak sectioned the hair at the ears, pulling the back portion into a low ponytail. To make this look perfect, Roszak pulled Mila's sides back, wrapped them around the pony, and secured with bobby pins for a high-on-glamour finish.

It may still be sunny across the nation, but Lily Collins took a cool-weather beauty look for a spin at last night's Mexico City premiere of The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. She traded in casual, summery locks for a well-polished coiffure that would look amazing with Fall's jewel-toned makeup and sexy smoky eyes. "Lily wore a gorgeous cutout dress that showed off her beautiful shape," said celebrity stylist Mara Roszak. "It was a classic yet incredibly sexy look that inspired the '40s brushed waves."
To create Lily's shiny curls, Roszak first prepped her damp hair with mousse before rough-drying her hair. Next, she curled sections of Lily's hair with a 3/4-inch curling iron towards her face and set the look with pin curls. "The key is to create the perfect S wave in front of the face by manipulating the hair with a comb and pinning in place," Roszak explained. "Once the head was set, I sprayed all over with L'Oréal Extra Strong Hold Elnett Hairspray ($15)."
Lily completed the glamorous look with equally stunning makeup. She focused on a bright purple lipstick hue, balancing out the look with her signature bold brows and a silvery smoky eye complete with winged eyeliner. Her Fall palette and glossy waves have us excited to transition into a new season ahead.
