WHO: Revlon’s Global Artistic Director, Gucci Westman, backstage at Oscar de la Renta

WHAT: Revlon’s Global Artistic Director, Gucci Westman, paired a strong brow with rosy, contoured cheeks for the Oscar de la Renta Fall 2011 collection, bringing forth the designer’s vision of an enigmatic eastern traveler.

“The look is about a Mongolian journey,” says Westman. “I darkened the brow and applied touches of pink-hued lipstick to the cheeks to give the illusion of a woman exploring the Siberian tundra.”

Vanessa Hudgens is the new face of Candie’s!

Vanessa Hudgens is the new Candie’s Girl!

Following on the heels of Britney Spears and Fergie‘s highly-successful runs, the junior brand has chosen the High School Musical star as the face of their Spring campaign. “Ever since I saw Fergie do the ads for Candie’s, I fell in love,” Hudgens said in a release. “It’s such an honor to be a Candie’s girl.” The campaign, which was shot by fashion photographer Tony Duran, will kick off this March with ads appearing in magazines, billboards and online for the brand, which is sold exclusively at Kohl’s department stores and kohls.com. Hudgens enthuses about the shoot (see a behind the scenes shot below!),”We had a blast shooting the campaign, one of my favorite sets was using the diner countertop as a runway, it’s definitely not every day I get to do that.” We have a feeling the multi-talented 22-year-old’s flirty and fun style will be the perfect match for the juniors’ line!

I think she’s a better choice than Britney! What do you think?

Michelle Obama turns heads by wearing Alexander McQueen dress at China state dinner

Michelle Obama was representing America at a state dinner hosting the man who is one of her husband’s biggest rivals on the world stage.

But the First Lady has once again made a daring fashion choice, appearing instead last night in a fiery red gown by British designer Alexander McQueen.

The Obamas were hosting Chinese president Hu Jintao at an elaborate state dinner in Washington last night- and Mrs Obama’s fashion choice was not the only controversial thing on the menu.

What do you think of her dress?
