• 2012 Billboard Music Award

    Absolutely loved the BBMA’s this year…hosted by two of my favorites from ‘Modern Family’ – this year’s show was much more entertaining than in the past. All the hottest musicians were there at the MGM Grand, Adele was a no show… but of course, still swept the awards. The tribute to Whitney Houston was pretty unbelievable, I may have shed a tear or two, don’t judge :).

    The “Biebs” snagged the “Top Social Artist” award and opted for a laid back look on the carpet…he brought one of his biggest fans as his date (not pictured)… thought that was pretty adorable.

    Robin Thicke looked SERIOUSLY handsome on the carpet and inside he introduced Kelly Clarkson-who showed a darker side when she performed her new single on stage.

    Now… Miss Cyrus, what can I say? There was a ton of buzz about Miley’s outfit…a neck plunging, white, Jean Paul Gaultier blazer, sans pants. I don’t HATE it but I think pants would have been a tad more appropriate.


  • Museum Glam: 2012 Met Gala

    The Costume Institute Gala, held at New York’s Metropolitan Museum is commonly referred to as the “fashion Oscars” and the stars did not disappoint this year. It was hollywood glamour all the way.

    This is by far one of fashion’s biggest nights…celebs from the music, film, art and of course, fashion industry were out in full force. All flaunting their designer garb, swoon.

    Marc Jacobs is everything, but when he showed up in this number, he took risk taker, fashion icon and all around fabulous, to a whole new level. Of course SJP rocked it as usual in a more demure look…and Kirsten Dunst opted for a ’40’s inspired sheath.

  • It’s Skin Cancer Awareness Month: New FDA Guidelines for Sunscreen

    New FDA guidelines make you check your sunscreen twice! What are they saying? Make sure the label says broad spectrum–which means that it protects against UVA and UVB rays evenly, make sure it has at least an SPF of 15 or higher (50 will now be the highest) since there is no research that proves an SPF greater than 50 will work more efficiently. What else?  Sunscreens must say “water resistant”, not  “waterproof.”

    L’Oreal Paris Dermatologist, Dr. Gervaise Gerstner  shares her top tips for protecting yourself against skin cancer.

    1–Choose a sunscreen  with SPF 30 or 50 and apply it every 2 hours. Use a timer or app on your phone to remind you to reapply!

    2–Use a shot glass full of sunblock to ensure you’re wearing enough.

    3–If you have children—let them have some fun–dab a dollop on a makeup brush and have them go to town on their own.

    4–See your derm yearly for skin cancer screenings.

    5–Stay out of the sun from 10am-4pm, when sun is the strongest.

    6–Wear a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses if you do have to venture out.
