Clairol Natural Instincts Spokesperson Giada De Laurentiis Looks Flawless for First Restaurant Opening in VEGAS!‏

Giada Clairol Natural Instincts

Celebrity chef and Clairol Natural Instincts spokesperson Giada De Laurentiis celebrated the opening of her first restaurant “Giada” in Las Vegas last night with her nearest and dearest. For the big night, Giada’s look was inspired by the art and colors threaded throughout her restaurant, designed to feel like you’re dining in Giada’s home.

Julie Morgan, celebrity makeup artist and longtime friend of Giada De Laurentiis, got her hair and makeup ready for the event. Here’s how:

Giada’s hair was freshly colored with Clairol Natural Instincts Amber Shimmer (a shade change for Giada) which gave her hair a gorgeous light golden brown hue. For the evening, she opted for loose voluminous waves to complement her Italian and California roots. To achieve this look:

1. Shampoo hair 24-48 hours after coloring hair for best results

2. Blow-dry hair and apply texturizing spray to roots for added volume

3. Take 1 inch barrel curling iron and twist sections of hair while leaving the ends of the hair out

4. Apply shine spray

5. Turn head over and move fingers through hair and spray a medium hold hairspray all-over to hold the curls in place, like Herbal Essences Naked Flexible Hold Spritzer

To complement Giada’s soft locks, Julie went with stone and jewel-tone smoky eye liner by Trish McEvoy. Giada’s overall skin, cheeks and lips were done in a rose gold hue (Chantecaille Future Skin Foundation, Jouer Rose Blush with Sunshine Bronzer and Rose Lip Pencil with Peach Pearl Lip Enhancer). Her look was finished with COVERGIRL mascara.

Giada’s wardrobe was styled by Stylist Sam Saboura — dress was by Cushnie et Ochs and shoes by Givenchy.

Mango is back!

The fabulous Mango is back!

Alexander Wang has just released the full video for the T by Alexander Wang campaign starring Chris Kattan as his famous Saturday Night Live character Mango!

Featuring a perfectly odd supporting cast, including model Behati Prinsloo as herself, former NHL player Sean Avery as Mango’s assistant, Real Housewives of New York City’s Sonja Morgan, Harper’s Bazaar’s Derek Blasberg as himself covering Mango’s new rival Sharaya J, and a split-second cameo of Alexander Wang, it’s all hilarious. Clad in an Alexander Wang crop top and short shorts, Mango delivers some doozies:

“I’ve been hiding in my fortress of Mangohood with my shih tzu, Constance. She’s my sober companion dog.”

“Well that tastes like Maggie Smith from “Downton Abbey.’ Just get me the spirulina with a green juice.”

“Oh my God, I’m worrying about my worry lines again. Am I getting more worry lines? See this big one here, this big one? I got that when Rob Lowe left ‘The West Wing.’”

“To be da Mango. Can you describe what it’s like to be a rainbow? Can you ask a beautiful flower, ‘Hey, beautiful flower, can I be you for a second?’”

“I stayed in hiding until someone from Alexander Wang came to me and told me the world needed me. It was like getting slapped in the face with a giant wang.”

I miss Chris Kattan! I thought this video was hilarious!
