The Victoria’s Secret Fantasy Treasure Bra may cost a pretty penny, but Miranda Kerr made it look oh-so-pretty Wednesday night during the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in New York. The model walked the runway wearing the $2.5 million diamond-studded bra by London Jewelers — plus an elaborate shell costume — and drew effusive cheers from husband Orlando Bloom, who sat front-row during the show.

Trend: Red Lipstick

Christian Dior’s orange-red pucker (shown here) is a spring standby. But, as designers Donna Karan and Anthony Vaccarello demonstrated, brownish and purplish reds are fair game too.

Trend: Bangs

Faux blunt-bangs stole the spotlight at Hermès (shown here) and John Galliano; at Miu Miu, models’ own strands were molded and pinned over the forehead for a similar appearance.

Post Trick-or-Treating Dental Tips‏

I vowed to be strong this year, I wouldn’t give in to my sweet tooth. Unfortunately the call of mini Twix, and snickers was too much to ignore. If you have been enjoying all the sugary Halloween treats as well here are some tips to keep your dentist from ever knowing.

Trick-or-treating is fun but that much sugar can be scary for your teeth. Check out Dr. Singh, funder and CEO of Arch Dental’s five tips for enjoying your Halloween treats!

1. Choose candy that melts quickly and can be eaten easily.

2. Have a glass of water after eating candy to wash away the sugar and neutralize the acid.

3. Avoid grazing on candy; it increases the time sugars are in contact with tooth enamel.

4. Have a treat with or after a meal, followed by a thorough tooth-brushing .

5. Time is of the essence when it comes to teeth and sugar. If not removed by brushing, or swishing with water, sugar from any source can increase the likelihood of cavities.


Don’t let your anti-aging routine stop at your face!

Fernando Milani

 

If you think you have  a handle on anti- aging with a great eye cream and facial regimen you are missing one vital piece. Most women overlook their hair as they grow older, missing key steps to keeping their hair healthy, shiny and vibrant. Fortunately Anti-Aging hair care is one of the fastest growing hair care categories and there are lots of great products to get you hair Rapunzel would swoon over.

 

Pick the right haircut:

You don’t need to chop off your hair  just because your no longer getting carded on ladies night. Study your face and your  lines to determine the right cut. Long hair can make crows feet appear smaller while a great bob can diminish the look of laugh lines and under eye droop. Your stylist can help you find the perfect cut to play up your best features.

 

Great hair starts on the inside:

What you put in your body is as important as what you put on it. When it comes to healthy hair a high quality anti-aging supplement and a healthy balanced diet will aid you in keeping silky, vibrant hair. Your hair will also benefit from hair care products fortified with vitamins A, B, C, and E, try Vitamin Blueberry Avocado Shampoo ($3.99) infused with potent antioxidants.

 

Treat your hair to a mask:

A great deep conditioner or mask can help combat dryness and roughness. A great deep conditioner that is easy on the wallet is Age Beautiful Intense Strengthing Treatment (9.99), a customer favorite leaves hair moisturized and easy to manage and adds unbelievable shine.

 

Switch your Shampoo and Conditioner:

A switch to anti-aging shampoo and conditioner will help nourish  and moisturizeyour hair restoring a youthful shine. Alterna’s Caviar Moisture ($53.00)  goes beyond simple moisture by helping hair attract, retain, and rebalance the hydration it needs. One of my favorites Frederic Fekkai Ageless ($35-$125) anti-aging formula repairs and prevents the effects of biological, environmental and mechanical aging in hair by restoring hair’s intrinsic strength, structure and vitality.
