I love Anne Hathaway! This photo shoot is simply amazing,  Anne looks perfect in the vintage styling and gowns.

Get the look: Retro Glam updo!

With her snow-white skin, dramatic eyebrows, and magnetic charm, Anne Hathaway epitomizes Hollywood glamour. Her now iconic look is taken to another level in this retro-glam spread in Vogue’s November issue featuring luxurious couture gowns and powerful up-dos.

Though designer gowns and haute jewelry may be out of reach, you can easily replicate Anne’s Vogue up-do using Goody Simple Styles™ Spin Pin.

Goody Simple Styles™ Spin Pin: SRP $6.49

1) Add texture to your hair by applying styling cream or volumizing spray

3) Apply dry texturizing spray at the roots
4) Pull hair up and twirl your hair into a bun
5) Twist in the two spin pins starting close to the scalp

Voila! The spin pin does the work of 20 bobby pins for a cover-worthy look even Anna Wintour would adore.

Ski Bunny Survival Kit

Skis up! If you plan to hit the slopes this winter you need beauty products that will withstand the cold and harsh conditions of all those snowy peaks.

Protect and save yourself with these 5 ski bunny essentials:

1. Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer SPF 15: A skier’s best defense against windburn and chapped skin is to keep skin super moisturized and protected from the sun’s harmful rays. Save time with a two-in-one moisturizer/SPF combo, like Cetaphil’s Daily Facial Moisturizer. It’s non-greasy and lightweight formula won’t make your skin feel heavy and the SPF protects against both UVA and UVB rays from the sun. Look for Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer at stores like CVS, Walgreens, Target and Rite Aid, with a suggested retail price of $11.99.

2. LypSyl Intense Protection LypMoisturizer: Wind got your lips feeling the burn? Try LypSyl, made with pure Swedish beeswax that protects lips from windburn and also moisturizes at the same time. Natural ingredients, including organic Shea butter, coconut oil and Vitamins E and A help the balm glide smoothly over lips, leaving them feeling soft, smooth and tingly. Use LypSyl every day before jumping on the lift to keep lips feeling and looking good. For sunscreen lip protection grab LypSyl in Honeyberry. LypSyl Intense Protection and LypSyl Honeyberry retail for $2.99 and can be found at drugstores nationwide.

3. CoverGirl LashBlast Mascara: While mascara won’t protect your eyes while skiing, if you want to look glam while racing down the hill, CoverGirl’s LashBlast Mascara (waterproof version of course!) packs a punch. In a variety of shades, this mascara magnifies lashes to give you a “come hither” stare. It’s also hypoallergenic and perfect for anyone who wears contacts. With a suggested retail price of $7.79, find LashBlast at grocery stores and drugstores nationwide.
