Megan Fox at the Toronto Film Festival

Red Carpet Watch
Megan Fox at the Toronto Film Festival

Megan Fox looked white-hot at the premiere of her new movie “Passion Play” at the 2010 Toronto Film Festival. She wore an elegant white Armani Privé dress and a sultry waved style created by celebrity stylist Creighton Bowman.

How to get the look:
“We decided a soft, and effortlessly natural look was the way to go with her dress which was sexy and short, and I wanted to play up the beauty of her long, luxurious hair,” said Creighton.

“The styling became all about products that would keep the hair looking fresh all evening long. I started by applying Lisa Chiccine Thickening Volume Foam, an alcohol-free styling mousse loaded with botanical extracts and certified organic ingredients, then towel-dried the hair from root to ends. I used it for this look because it’s really lightweight and gives a nice boost of natural-looking lift and volume.

Next, I did a loose, natural-looking blow dry and sprayed a light mist of Lisa Chiccine Hold Weightless Satin Hairspray all over her hair. I used Hold because it’s fast drying, flexible and gives an anti-static hold. It’s great for long hair that needs to move. Finally, I sectioned the hair and made random waves with a medium curling iron. To finish, I used a drop of Lisa Chiccine Shine, a great anti-frizz serum by Lisa Chiccine that doesn’t weight hair down. It also has sun filters to help prevent sun damage.

Lisa Chiccine Thickening Volume Foam a powerful mousse loaded with botanical extracts and certified organic ingredients, for exceptional lift and volume. (7 oz. / $26.00)

Lisa Chiccine Hold Weightless Satin Hairspray, for natural-looking, flexible, anti-static hold with no residue or build-up. (10 oz / $26.00)

Introducing Calvin Klein Beauty

Calvin Klein beauty it marketed toward a more sophisticated and mature woman i.e. the 30 and up group. I am not sure I like being in the “mature” woman age group thought I had a few more years to hit that stage. Diane Kruger looks flawless in these ads maybe being “mature” isn’t so bad?

I love Calvin Klein Beauty it’s a very modern, clean and feminine scent. It starts with a great floral scent and the dry down leaves me with a creamy cedar note. A great addition to any fragrance collection.

The Calvin Klein Beauty Woman:

Authentic and true; she is accomplished and inspiring.

She believes in the power of self-knowledge, gained from the life she’s lived.

At once feminine and strong, she shapes her destiny with a charismatic allure and determined strength. Her true beauty, lies within.

The Fragrance:

Calvin Klein Beauty evokes the ultimate power of femininity and sophistication, while capturing the spirit of a woman who is beautiful from the inside out, with an aura that radiates.

A new interpretation of a lily – a neo-lily – is the heart and soul of Calvin Klein Beauty. A sophisticated flower that is the essence of femininity, the lily is also radiant and powerful.

Bringing the neo-lily to life, ambrette seeds enhance the spicy warmth, timeless jasmine elevates the floral signature, and a trail of cedarwood brings a vibrant and magnetic beauty to the drydown.

Mid: Jasmine

Dry: Cedarwood

The Design:

The Calvin Klein Beauty bottle design features smooth feminine curves, set atop a luxurious glass base. A metallic silver ring encircles the glass, expressing a woman’s on going strength and confidence, while the golden liquid reflects her luminosity and inner-beauty. The metallic silver cap evokes the sculptural shapes fundamental to the Calvin Klein aesthetic.

The outer packaging is a sleek white, glossy carton featuring a vibrant silver halo, while the inner carton exudes a soft yellow glow revealing warmth, light and radiance. The carton incorporates shades of silver and white, signature Calvin Klein colors that are reminiscent of clean, spare shift dresses from the Calvin Klein Collection Runway Show.
